This week’s best gaming deals: Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo Switch, Breath of the Wild Explorer’s Edition, and more

By Jamie Wallace, Friday, 3 November 2017 11:37 GMT

We’re kicking off November with a brand new Call of Duty game, the impending release of a brand new Xbox One and a giant batch of deals to check out today.

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

The C64 Mini

If you like your consoles kitschy, tiny and full of old games but you have a desire for something other than Nintendo titles, you can head over to Amazon UK today and put a pre-order down on a miniature Commodore 64. There are, appropriately enough, 64 games packed into this thing, which emulates the look of a C64 in tiny form.

Steam Link and Controller

Steam stuff sale alert! Yet again, the Steam Link and Steam Controller are seeing discounts. If you missed out the last time these two were cut in price, you can grab a Steam Link for £11.99 or a Steam Controller for £27.99 for a limited time, with free delivery at GAME.

nintendo_switch_new_8

Nintendo Switch consoles haven’t seen a lot of price cuts since launching earlier this year, so it’s worth checking out whenever they do show up. Case in point, SimplyGames is offering both the Neon and Grey versions of the Switch for £259.99 right now, which is the second cheapest price the console’s ever been available for.

razer phone usd

Razer’s gone and made a phone. This is an Android-based device with a 5.7-inch screen featuring a 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Atmos speakers, two 12MP cameras and 8GB of RAM. Admittedly, you probably don’t need all that but if you’re the type of person that likes your fancy gadgets, you can pick this thing up from Razer or Three in the UK.

That small, indie title you’ve probably never heard of,  PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (the cool kids call it PUBG) is coming out on Xbox One next month and getting a fancy boxed version to boot. You can pick it up cheapest at Base for £21.85 or £1 more at ShopTo.

US Deals

breath_of_the_wild_explorers_edition_lg

Nintendo tends to do its own things for Black Friday. Rather than discounting some of its recently released games or consoles, the company has a history of bringing out brand new stuff to celebrate the day instead. This year, one of those things is the Explorer’s Edition of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Explorer’s Edition on Nintendo Switch for $59.99 from Amazon US

assassins_creed_origins_close_up
If you were too busy playing through Wolfenstein 2 or Super Mario Odyssey this past week to get around to Assassin’s Creed Origins – who can blame you, really – but you want to give Ubisoft’s Egyptian adventure a shot, you can head over to NewEgg’s eBay outlet right now and grab a copy on Xbox One or PS4 for $47.99. That’s while stock lasts, of course.
