Hey there once again for another installment of “here’s what was cheap this week”. We’ve got a whole new batch of games and gaming related techy bits to check out this week. Hopefully, some of them will save you some pennies. Let’s get started, shall we?
Like always, 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.
UK & US Deals

Speaking of Humble, this month’s big-deal game that you’ll get by signing up to a Humble Monthly subscription is Total War Warhammer. For those not in the know, a Humble Monthly subscription costs £10 / $12 a month and will see you getting a stack of Steam keys for your money each month. This also means it’s by far the cheapest way to get a copy of Total War Warhammer. Be quick, though, since the games on offer change each month, as you may expect.
The folks over at Deep Silver have put a whole bunch of their games on sale via Xbox Live right now, which is rather nice of them. For the next few days, you’ll be able to save a pretty penny on some of the company’s most recent offerings. Here are some highlights.
- Saints Row 4: Re-Elected and Gat Out Of Hell for £6 / $7.50
- Metro Redux for £4.80 / $6
- Dirt Rally for £22 / $24
- Homefront: The Revolution for £10.50 / $15
- Dead Island Definitive Edition for £10 / $16
- This War of Mine: The Little Ones for £7.20 / $9
- Mighty No. 9 for £6.40 / $8
- Deadlight: Director’s Cut for £4.80 / $6
Catherine is a very, very strange game. It’s a relentlessly challenging puzzle game mixed with a soap-opera level drama mixed with a bizarre JRPG. It’s baffling, erratic and altogether disorientating. In short, it’s absolutely fantastic. The digital Xbox 360 version of the game is currently reduced down to £2.24 (or your local currency equivalent) on Xbox Live. It’s also backwards compatible so that version will work just fine on an Xbox One too. Don’t have nightmares.
What with that LEGO Batman movie out right this very minute (which I hear is quite decent), what better time to indulge yourself with a copy of LEGO Batman 3 on PC along with seven (!) DLC packs with extra content, all for £6.69 / $9.99. At that price, it might just be worth it for in-game Adam West’s voice.
Underground, overground, wombling free. That’s what you can be doing right now if you grab a copy of the Metro Redux Bundle on PC from Bundle Stars, where it’s currently reduced down to £4.99 / $7.99. That’s both of the extra bleak post-apocalyptic first-person shooters in the Metro franchise for a super affordable price.
Over at Amazon US right now, you can grab yourself a digital copy of Forza Horizon 3 for $39.99. This being a digital copy of an Xbox One Play Anywhere game, this means you’ll be getting both the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC versions of the game at the same time and can play on whichever one you please. Neato.
If you’ve been looking for a new mouse with a bit of a gaming bent, you wouldn’t do badly to head over to NewEgg and check out this Logitech G602 which is currently on sale for half price, down to $39.99. It’s the type with multiple buttons, far more than any mouse realistically should have (eleven on this model, in fact) as well as precise DPI settings.
If that Logitech G602 above didn’t grab your attention, you might prefer to take a look at a Razer Diamondback Chroma gaming mouse instead. This one is marginally more expensive than the G602, though still discounted by quite a ways. It also happens to be ambidextrous, which is a nice little feature to have.
Hey, remember No Man’s Sky? Somehow, it’s been almost half a year since the release of Hello Games’, uh, let’s call it “divisive” space exploration game. It’s currently down to its cheapest price yet as a PS4 game now, costing just £14 right now.
Look, there’s only so many times I can tell you that you really, really need to play Titanfall 2. If you were one of the many people to not get this one at launch (for shame) and still haven’t picked it up, you can head over to Amazon UK right now and get an Xbox One or PS4 copy for £27.99. On the PC, you’ll be paying just shy of £25 for an awkward code-in-box copy.
Adam Jensen may not be returning to our screens any time soon but last year’s Deus Ex Mankind Divided is still out there and if you happen to have missed it on release, you can grab yourself an extra fancy steelbook edition on PS4 for the lowest price yet – £14.85, over at Base.
With Street Fighter 5 constantly being tweaked and updated, Injustice 2 coming in May and the one I’m most looking forward to, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite showing up in the latter half of the year (fingers crossed), it might not be a bad time to invest in an arcade style fight stick. I say invest, but really, this Mad Catz FightStick Alpha for PS4 and PS3 is currently reduced down to £34.99 so it might not be as much an investment as it would be a nice treat.
Today, you can get your grubby mitts around an Xbox One Elite Controller for under £73 as long as you don’t mind going with a refurbished model. The folks at Home and Garden Ltd have made a bit of a thing of refurbishing Elite controllers and selling them via their eBay store with a 12 month warranty. Not a bad price for one of the best gaming controllers on the market right now.
If you’re one of the people who has been holding out on picking up a 4K television until the prices came down a little, you might just be in luck. This 55-inch LG 4K smart TV is one of the cheapest ways to get a high-quality 4K TV right now, costing just £550 at the moment. It even features that fancy HDR technology all the kids are talking about these days.
Heads up, movie fans, Amazon UK is currently offering a whole range of movies on blu-ray at massively reduced prices. There’s a whole set of them currently priced up at £4.99 including 10 Cloverfield Lane, The Witch, The Big Short and even the Predator Trilogy box set. Plus, that copy of Blade Runner is only £7.99 and frankly, everyone needs to own at least one copy of Blade Runner.
- The Witch on Blu-ray for £4.99 from Amazon UK
- 10 Cloverfield Lane on Blu-ray for £4.99 from Amazon UK
- The Big Short on Blu-ray for £4.99 from Amazon UK
- Hail, Caesar! on Blu-ray for £4.99 from Amazon UK
