These will be gaming deals but if you’re interested in checking out a wider range of deals head over to Jelly Deals. Let’s get started.

Speaking of Xbox Live, right now you can grab some real Xbox 360 classics at massively reduced prices. These titles are also backwards compatible, meaning you’ll be able to play them on your big fancy Xbox One console rather than having to pull the 360 out of the attic. Here are some highlights of what’s on offer. These prices are with a Gold membership, non-Gold members will have to spend a few extra pennies.

hard drive crew

This one was already included in Rich Leadbetter’s Digital Foundry article, but I would be remiss to not include it here as well. Right now on Amazon UK, you can pick up a 525GB Crucial solid state drive for only £80.49, while stock lasts. This one got Digital Foundry’s seal of approval too, so you know it’s good.

The same drive is available in the US for $99.99 from Amazon’s US division.

Sony’s having itself a flash sale on some digital titles on the EU PlayStation Network store right now. I’ve gathered up some of my favourite highlights from it, so feel free to grab some lovely new games to play through the Christmas break (if you get one, that is).

tales_from_the_borderlands

Tales from the Borderlands continues its journey towards costing you nothing at all to play. For now though, it’s down to its cheapest ever price in its boxed form for £5.99 from GAME. That’s the entire season in a fancy box that you could put on a shelf and smile at occasionally as you walk past.

CALL PS4

A couple more PS4 console deals made themselves known today. Most notably, perhaps, is ShopTo’s current bundle deal (offered through eBay) for a PS4 500GB Slim console with a copy of Call of Duty Infinite Warfare for only £189.

Then, over at GAME, you can grab a PS4 Pro console for £359.99 along with copies of InFAMOUS Second: Son, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and a NOW TV pass. Which is nice.

project_cars

GAME is also offering a big discount on the Game of the Year edition of Project CARS, bringing the price down to £17.99 on both Xbox One and PS4. If you’ve been thinking about picking this one up, this is a decent price for it.

Webcam C930

Okay, this one isn’t technically a game or strictly gaming related, but today Amazon UK is offering this Logitech C920 HD webcam for a record-low price of £29.99. This particular model is almost an industry standard for Twitch streamers and YouTube folk alike and usually costs well above £60, so getting such a widely used and well-reviewed camera for under £30 is a bit of a steal.

rise_of_the_tomb_raider_20_year_celebration_screens_1

Lara Croft’s triumphant return to PlayStation consoles came in the form of the 20 Year Celebration edition of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Sure, the game itself is a year old by now but that doesn’t stop it from being a pretty great game still. The PS4 version is down to its lowest price yet at Amazon UK right now, available for £24.99.

Amazon US is offering up DualShock 4 controllers, including the fancy new version with the light bar on the front, for only $33.99 right now. At that price, there’s rarely been a better time to grab an extra controller for your friends or just for funsies. As well as the new-style V2 controller, you could grab yourself a ‘Glacier White’ controller. That’s if you’re feeling particularly extravagant.

bloodborne_treething

Look, if you’re a PS4 owner who doesn’t own Bloodborne already, you really need to fix that. The game is down to $9.99 at GameStop US right now, which incidentally is its lowest ever price anywhere, so trust me, just do yourself a favour and grab it while it’s ten bucks. I mean, come on.

skyrim_special_edition_mod_opening_scene_overhaul

Skyrim: Special Edition hasn’t even been out that long but it’s already made it’s way into Amazon US’s Cyber Monday deals today. It’s down to just $24.99 on either Xbox One or PS4 right now in all of its remastered glory. There’s probably an arrow in the knee joke to be made here but unfortunately, it’s not 2011 anymore so I’m going to avoid making any of those.
