rayman_origins

Games that cost less than cup of coffee can’t be bad, right? See for yourself, since GAME is selling digital PC copies of platforming classic Rayman Origins (via Uplay) for 99p. The code will work in any territory but your mileage may vary on price, however.

the_silver_case

The recently released remaster of Suda51’s detective thriller, The Silver Case, is available as a PC download with 40% off right now, from Humble’s store. As you can probably expect, a detective thriller coming from the creator of Lollipop Chainsaw, Let It Die, Killer 7 and No More Heroes, all is not what it seems at first and The Silver Case is quite the ride, to say the least.

The Silver Case on PC (Steam) for £9.29 / $11.99 / €11.09 from Humble Store

Shovel-Knight-Design-Works

I’m not ashamed to say that Shovel Knight is one of my favourite titles to have seen release in the last few years so, with that in mind, the fact that the little indie game that could is getting its own Official Design Works book release this year, is quite exciting. The book, which covers the making of the game and the history of the company, is up for pre-order at Amazon UK and US right now.

UK Deals

2ds xl

Not satisfied with releasing a brand new console in March (and a miniature console back in November), Nintendo is set to release yet another console this July. The New Nintendo 2DS XL is seemingly a hybrid of the best bits of the 2DS and the New 3DS, with more processing power and a folding, clamshell design. It also looks really slick. Pre-orders are live now and if you put an order down before the end of Sunday 7th May, you can take an extra £10 off by using the code VG10OFF75 during checkout.

New Nintendo 2DS XL (Black & Turquoise) for £119.99 using code VG10OFF75 from Amazon UK
New Nintendo 2DS XL (White & Orange) for £119.99 using code VG10OFF75 from Amazon UK

call_of_duty_infinite_warfare_quartermaster

I suppose it shouldn’t come as any shock that the instant a brand new Call of Duty game gets announced, last year’s model drops to its lowest ever price point. Over at Amazon UK, you can pick up Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on Xbox One or PS4 (along with some Amazon exclusive pin badges and DLC) for £12.99 while stock lasts.

Turtle-Beach-Gaming-Keyboard-750x422

For one reason or another, Amazon UK is offering up this Turtle Beach Impact 100 gaming keyboard for the slightly ridiculous price of £12.99. It’s not a mechanical keyboard, though it claims to ‘emulate the feel of a mechanical keyboard’ but hey, it’s £13.

switch

We’re just about two months removed from the actual launch of the Nintendo Switch but the system has gotten no less in demand in that time. Both the Neon and Grey versions tend to sell out within hours when they do crop up which is why Tesco Direct has decided to start taking pre-orders again. Stock is due back in on May 25th but you can get an extra £20 off that pre-order by entering the code TDX-KPYK at checkout. Sure, you’ll have to wait for your console but it’ll be cheaper than you can find anywhere else, so that’s a plus.

Nintendo Switch (Grey) for £259.99 using code TDX-KPYK from Tesco Direct

MSI-Laptop-Gaming-980m-750x422

Gaming laptops are always a bit pricey, so it’s nice to see a discount when they come along, however rare. Over at Ebuyer, you can pick up a 15-inch MSI gaming laptop (2.5GHz i5 processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, GeForce GTX 960M 2GB card) with a £150 discount currently. That makes the total price £599.98 and you’ll also get a free SteelSeries Kinzu V3 mouse and mousepad for your troubles.

Forza-Xbox-One-S-Console-750x422

Recently, SimplyGames has gotten into the habit of offering some of the cheapest options for console buying around. Case in point, you can currently grab an Xbox One S 1TB console along with a copy of Forza Horizon 3 for £199.99. Free next-day delivery, too.

ASUS-Transformer-Mini-750x422

Microsoft is currently taking $100 off the price of this fancy little ASUS Transformer Mini 2-in-1 tablet PC hybrid thingy. That takes the price down to $249 for a limited time by going through Microsoft’s own store, which isn’t too bad for a shiny new tech thing.

Entering one of the codes below during checkout will take the price down to $44.99, which effectively makes it the cheapest way to get the game at this point in time.
