This Week's Best Video Game Deals - 10/27/2017

Great deals on Nier Automata, Resident Evil 7, the SNES 3DS XL, and more.

It’s been one busy week for video games. Three major new releases today alone makes this one of the biggest weeks of the year so far. Right now, there’s no shortage of sales, price cuts and bundles. Join us as we take a look at the very best gaming deals of the past week.

As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started.

UK & US Deals

GOG's Halloween Sale is now live and features over 200 games, all discounted up to 90% in celebration of the spookiest of seasons. There are some absolute classics in this range, along with some fairly recent releases, and you'll get a free copy of Tales From The Borderlands when you spend $15 or more, too. All the games bought here are DRM-free versions.

Humble's got its own Halloween offerings up for grabs, too, with a free copy of Guns of Icarus Online thrown in for good measure. As with a few of the other sales, there's up to 90% off a range of games at the Humble store. Your purchases here will contribute to charity and usually result in Steam keys.

Green Man Gaming is also getting in on the Halloween Sale fun, with a massive batch of discounts spanning everything from Limbo to Resident Evil 7, just in case you needed some extra spooks in your life.

If you're of the Overwatch fan persuasion, you may want to check out the latest Nendoroids to be birthed into the world. This time, it's Hanzo and Genji to have been given the chibi figurine treatment. These will set you back £31.01 / $39.99 each, plus shipping.

US Deals

If you have a need to get existential with the latter half of your year, you can go ahead and pick up a copy of Nier Automata while it's discounted down to $35 over at GameStop.

In case you didn't already put down a pre-order on the Zelda Encyclopedia the last time I mentioned it here, you can now pre-order the extra fancy Deluxe Edition of the hardcover book. This version is styled after the luxurious gold cartridge edition of the original game and is only being made in limited quantities.

The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia Deluxe Edition for $47.99 from Amazon US

Not long after the UK version made its way onto shelves, the US finally gets a chance to own a New Nintendo 3DS XL console styled after the Super Nintendo. The US version admittedly features a colour scheme that's a lot more subdued than the European version, this one might be a real nostalgia trip for you US readers.

UK Deals

Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is barely a month old but it's already been discounted all the way down to just under £25 on both Xbox One and PS4.

Continuing the trend of brand new games getting prices slashed well in advance of Black Friday week, The Evil Within 2 can be yours on either Xbox One or PS4 right now for £32.86 if you go through ShopTo.

Gran Turismo Sport has only just been released but it's already been discounted. Over at Simply Games, you can grab a copy for just shy of £35 this week, that is, while stock lasts.

Overwatch is back in one of these deals articles - this time the console version of the Game of the Year Edition of the game is down to £29 over at Amazon UK.

PSVR deal time! Over at GAME, you can pick up a bundle of stuff along with a PlayStation VR headset and save a bunch of money in the process. £350 will get you a PSVR headset, PS Camera, PSVR Worlds, GT Sport Limited Edition, Resident Evil 7 and a 2 month NOW TV pass, all in one big bundle.

For those in need of a PS4 and an extra gaudy one at that, you can place a pre-order on the Call of Duty WW2 themed camo edition of a PS4 1TB Slim, which will cost you £259.99 exclusively from Tesco Direct in the UK.

If you're after not only a Nintendo Switch console but Super Mario Odyssey along with it, you can grab a bundle of the two from GAME right now and save a little bit of cash. The pair of those will cost you £309.99 at the moment.

The upcoming remaster of Rockstar's cop 'em up, L.A. Noire is available to pre-order cheapest from Simply Games, where a PS4 or Xbox One boxed copy will cost you £26.85 right now.

Another day, another Prey discount. Just in time for Halloween, Bethesda's spooky alien shooter is down to £13.50 on consoles.

If you happen to be an Amazon Prime member, you can get a New Nintendo 2DS XL in either of its fancy colour schemes for £10 less than the regular price. That's a Prime exclusive offer, though, so keep that in mind.

It's a rare thing to see discounts on MacBook laptops, even if they aren't the most recent model, so this offer of a 12-inch MacBook from 2016, available in all four colours for £999 is hardly one to scoff at.

With that, we're done for another week. Keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at the drop of a hat, so apologies if you miss out on something you wanted.
