By Jamie Wallace, Friday, 31 March 2017 13:49 GMT

Welcome back once again to another roundup of the best deals from the world of gaming, tech and other fantastic fancy bits.

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


By now, you will have heard a whole lot about Nier: Automata. Since it’s release on PS4 a few weeks ago, it has made quite the impression on the video gaming world in general. Not only does it technically have a whopping twenty-six endings (one for every letter of the alphabet) but it also pairs up some finely tuned brawler gameplay with some surprisingly deep existential questioning from the story. Oh, and robots. Lots of robots. Currently, you can get a PC copy of Nier Automata for £29.99 / $44.99 / €44.99 over at Green Man gaming.

UK Deals


With the deluge of recent video game releases that have almost entirely been worthy of a ‘must play’ label, you’d be forgiven for forgetting about Ubisoft’s late 2016 release of Watch Dogs 2. However you felt about the original Watch Dogs, its sequel is a different beast entirely. If you feel like giving it a go for yourself, it’s down to £22 at Amazon UK at the moment.

Watch Dogs 2 on Xbox One for £22 from Amazon UK


Rare Replay has a habit of falling in price every couple of months at this rate so it’s probably no surprise that it’s down to £9.99 at Amazon UK currently. Still, there’s no arguing with thirty games for a tenner, right?

If you’ve been putting off playing Star Wars Battlefront or the imminent Blu-ray release of Rogue One has given you the Star Wars itch, you may be in luck. The PC version of the game is currently down to £12.50 at Amazon UK. Neat.

Over on the other side of the space opera battlefield, you can currently get all three of the newer Star Trek movies in one fancy Blu-ray box set for just £15 at Amazon UK. This one’s nice if you class yourself as a fan of the later Trek series or just fancy staring at Chris Pine as he gets progressively more like a Ken doll with each film.

US Deals

You can grab a fairly nice bargain of an Xbox One S console right now over at Amazon US, where the 1TB console, bundled up with a digital copy of Forza Horizon 3, is down to $290. The price on this one has ranged from $290 and $300 over the past few days but it’s a really good price either way.
