It’s the end of Gamescom week, which more than many weeks before it, has brought a batch of discounts and offers on everything from fancy new tech to pre-orders of upcoming games. Let’s take a look at this week’s best gaming deals, as found on the information superhighway.
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 you fancy a couple of cheap thrills, you can get just that with Humble’s latest bundle – the Humble ‘Spooky Horror’ Bundle. That name could probably have used some work.
Here’s what you can get for the next couple of weeks.
Pay what you want
- Dead Age
- DreadOut: Keepers of the Dark
- Lakeview Cabin Collection
Pay more than the average
- Layers of Fear: Masterpiece Edition

The second of two brand-new consoles Microsoft announced over the weekend, the Minecraft-themed limited edition Xbox One S features dirt and grass blocks designs across the front of the box, with a translucent back panel featuring Redstone wires that will light up when the console is switched on. On top of that, the box will make Minecraft sounds when turned on and off, features a controller designed after a Creeper, a vertical stand, a 1TB hard drive and a copy of the game with some bonus DLC. All that will cost you £350.
- Xbox One S 1TB Limited Edition Minecraft Bundle for £349.99 from Microsoft UK
- Xbox One S 1TB Limited Edition Minecraft Bundle for $399 from Microsoft US
For the die-hard Minecraft fans out there, Microsoft is also offering a Minecraft Pig skinned Xbox One controller, available to order separately for £65 / $75.
- Minecraft Pig themed Xbox One controller for £64.99 from Microsoft UK
- Minecraft Pig themed XBox One controller for $74.99 from Microsoft US
Bayonetta 2 is, for all of its cult following, still a bit of an under appreciated gem. If you’ve got a Wii U console lying about and lack this one, you can grab a boxed copy for only £9.99 right now by going through Argos’ eBay outlet.
You can pick up one of the absolute best PS4 Pro deals we’ve ever seen at Tesco this week. Head over there and add a PS4 Pro 1TB console to your basket, then go ahead and add Uncharted The Lost Legacy, Dishonored 2, Doom, Fallout 4 and a 3 month PS Plus membership to your basket. The whole thing will add up to £349.99. Then, use the code TDX-WFTW during checkout to get an extra £20 off, bringing the lot down to £329.99.
Once more there’s a deal on an OLED 4K television that makes me question exactly how far I can stretch my overdraft. This time, the 2017 edition of LG’s masterpiece 55-inch OLED 4K set with HDR is down to £1799.10 when you enter the code TVSAVE at Argos.
The very sleek and very skinny ZenBook 3 from ASUS is on offer this week at Currys PC World. While still not exactly cheap, it’s down to £799.99 from its original £1099.99, saving £300 for the time being.
Amazon Prime members have exclusive access to this deal, which lets you pick up a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB graphics card, manufactured by Gigabyte, for just £690 right now and get a free digital copy of Destiny 2 along with it. That’s a very decent price for one of the most powerful graphics cards on the planet right now.
If you’re not all that bothered by the PS4 Pro or Xbox One X and would rather go for a decently priced PS4 Slim instead, check out this one. For £200, you’ll get a PS4 Slim 500GB console with LEGO Star Wars: Force Awakens as well as the Force Awakens movie on Blu-ray.
This HP Envy x360 laptop is the type of laptop that can be flipped around completely and kind of turned into a big tablet, if you like. You can save £100 off the price of it directly from HP’s own online store if you enter the code BANK100 at checkout.
I don’t think I’ve watched live television for at least seven years. Definitely not since on-demand apps became the norm and companies started putting out USB stick type devices that allows users to use those apps easier than ever. Enter, the Chromecast, which is down to £19 at the moment at Currys.
Argos is selling off all of its leftover stock of the Titanfall-branded Turtle Beach Ear Force Atlas gaming headset, compatible with Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC, for its lowest ever price – £34.99, while stock lasts.
Not being the world’s biggest racing fan (I grew up watching F1 rather than this muddy lark), there’s only so much I can actually tell you about Dirt 4. It’s got Rallycross in it, it’s full of cars and apparently, it’s pretty alright. It can be yours for its lowest ever price right now, £26.99 from Amazon UK.
Tesco’s money-off vouchers on gaming and tech stuff are back! That means you can get up to £20 off some of the most fun stuff around, including Switch consoles, upcoming releases, Amazon Echo at its lowest ever price, and more. To give you some inspiration, besides the aforementioned PS4 Pro deal, here’s a bunch of stuff you can get right now when you use one of these codes.

Look, LEGO Advent Calendars are here and they’re not going away. Year after year, these things sell out months in advance of actual Christmas, so you may want to get a pre-order in on one of these while you still can. They’re due to ship within the next couple of weeks and available to order now.
If you’ve been looking to add a fancy new monitor to your overall gaming PC setup, you may just want to check out Best Buy’s current deal on this sizeable 27-inch Dell gaming monitor. It’s G-Sync compatible, has a 1ms response time and is capable of up to 144Hz refresh rates. It’s also $150 off right now.
Sonic Mania finally releases on PC next week and, if my experience with the game’s Switch version is any indication, it’s not one to miss out on. You can pick up the Steam version of the game for a little less than normal by using the code EMCRJCE62 at NewEgg right now.
Not even a month after I mentioned Rick and Morty Monopoly being a thing, here we are again, staring at the latest thing that the marriage of pop culture and consumerism has birthed – Rick and Morty Clue. That’s Cluedo for everyone reading this outside of America, by the way. Either way, this is most definitely also a thing and it can be yours for 40 bucks via ThinkGeek.
With that, we’re done for another week. Keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at the drop of a hat, so apologies if you miss out on something you wanted. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook.
