By Jamie Wallace, Friday, 18 August 2017 09:12 GMT

This week’s absolute best gaming deals include a few new offers from the likes of Humble Bundle, GOG, GamesPlanet and more. There are even a few extra special Blu-ray box sets if you feel like it. Let’s take a look.

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

If there’s a better name for a video game sale than ‘Pinata Madness’, I’ve certainly not heard it. GOG’s fantastically titled range of discounts offers a nice change from the site’s regular weekly sale. You can drop a few coins on a mystery key if you fancy, or just stick to a nice set of discounted titles.

Some highlights:

No Man’s Sky for £15.99 / $23.99 / €23.99
Soma for £6.99 / $8.99 / €7.99

Case Replacments for Switch

Someone out there has come up with a product that will invalidate the heck out of your Nintendo Switch warranty while potentially making it look a lot nicer. Over at Amazon, you can grab some DIY sets to replace the casing of your Joy-Cons or Switch backplate, allowing you to add some more custom colours to your Switch’s look. At your own risk, of course.

UK Deals

ps_plus

The cost of PlayStation Plus memberships is going up at the end of this month so PlayStation is currently offering a tiny bit of a make-good in the form of 15 months of PS Plus for the price of 12. That’s the current price of 12, by the way, so £39.99 for 15 months. Stock up while you can, since this offer is only good until the price increase. Memberships do stack on your account, too.

15 months of PlayStation Plus for the price of 12 (£39.99) from PlayStation Store

puyo_puyo_tetris1

The insanely addictive and kind of fantastic Puyo Puyo Tetris on Nintendo Switch has reached its lowest price so far in the UK. TheGameCollection is selling some of its stock via its eBay outlet for £24.95. This edition is from overseas but features full English language settings and, thanks to the Switch’s region-free loveliness, works perfectly anywhere.

ElectriQ 28 inch 4K FreeSync monitor

It’s an unknown brand, sure, but this EletriQ 28-inch monitor boasts FreeSync as well as full 4K resolution, all for just under £200, which is a whole lot of good stuff to pack into a moderately priced gaming monitor.

ni_no_kuni_2_europe_kings_edition_1

As previously mentioned, Ni No Kuni 2’s release brings with it a rather massive collector’s edition in the form of the ‘King’s Edition’. It’s got a lofty RRP of £150, though, so if you’ve got your heart set on picking this up, you’re going to want to head to Base and grab a pre-order for £134.95 while you still can.

Ni No Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom King’s Edition on PS4 for £134.95 from Base

LG OLED 4K TV OLED55C7V HDR

Arguably the best 4K television you can buy with human money right now, the LG OLED55C7V is absolutely a luxury purchase.

Head over to Amazon UK right now and you can grab the officially licensed Joy-Con Battery Pack set for £9.33 and keep playing for longer.

Blade Runner 4K Special Edition Blu-ray

Blade Runner is a movie with a truly baffling amount of different editions, releases and cuts. The upcoming release of the film’s 4K version adds one (hopefully final) one to the list. Right now, you can pre-order a beautifully put together Special Edition of the 4K cut of Blade Runner, which also comes with every other edition ever released, all on a set of Blu-ray discs. It’s due out later this year.

Blade Runner 4K Special Edition box set for £39.99 from Zavvi

The big set is also available at Amazon UK, though for a higher price at the time of writing. That price may very well come down if the site decides to price match Zavvi.

Blade Runner 4K Special Edition box set for £49.99 from Amazon UK

If you don’t fancy getting every known edition of the movie, you can opt instead to pick up just ‘The Final Cut’ in its 4K form in a fancy steelbook edition as well.

Blade Runner The Final Cut 4K Steelbook Edition for £27.99 from Amazon UK

Ash vs. Evil Dead Blu-rays

Even though the show has been on television for a couple of years now and both seasons have been available on Blu-ray for months in the US, the UK has had to wait for boxed editions of Ash vs. Evil Dead. Until now, that is, since both seasons of the show can be pre-ordered on Blu-ray before their October release. Both box sets are currently cheapest over at Zavvi, where they’ll cost you £24.99 each.

Ash vs. Evil Dead Seasons 1 and 2 on Blu-ray for £24.99 each from Zavvi

Both box sets are also available at Amazon UK, though right now they’re priced up noticeably higher, at around £35 each. Worth checking, though, just in case of a price match.

Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 1 on Blu-ray for £33.99 from Amazon UK
Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 2 on Blu-ray for £34.99 from Amazon UK

US Deals

Humble 2K PlayStation Bundle

At Humble right now, you can pay a price of your choice and get a whole bunch of PlayStation digital titles in return. These are mostly PS3 downloads with some Vita and PS4 games thrown in for good measure, but it does mean you can save money on a copy of XCOM 2 for PS4. To be able to use these codes, you’ll need a PlayStation account from one of these countries.

Look, this is at least the sixth time Prey has appeared in one of these articles because it’s had a really nice price drop in some form or another. If you’ve been remotely interested in trying your luck at space survival, it can now be yours for $30.
