The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is coming October 23rd and is available to preorder for just £26.85 on Nintendo 3DS, saving a few quid over the competition.
This multiplayer focussed title allows three players, each controlling a different coloured Link to work together in a new Zelda adventure. Via online or local networks, players will take on bosses, solve puzzles and stack on top of each other to reach higher areas or perform special attacks. It could be a little dumbed-down compared to usual Zelda titles, but the co-op gameplay could be a good match for the series.

Super Mario Maker has been a big hit for Wii U fans. Find out what all the fuss is about with this £29.95 offer which includes an artbook.
Super Mario Maker is an excellent game for Mario fans, especially those of you who really want to push your skills to the limits. Download user-created stages or build your own on this intuitive Wii U title that makes great use of the Gamepad's screen with an intuitive design that's much easier than creating a stage in LittleBigPlanet.

While you can get a digital copy for about a tenner, this is a great price for a physical copy of the game.
With Remastered, you're getting the slickest visuals and a higher framerate than on PS3 and the Left Behind DLC. In fact, if you bought the original PS3 game and the DLC today, you'd be paying more than £14.95, so this price is even sweeter.
Thanks to BuzzDuraband.
Killzone: Shadow Fall is one of the PS4's best-looking games and is worth a look for any FPS fan at just £6.95. Note: It's listed as a 'bundle copy' so the packaging may vary from the usual versions.
While the campaign certainly had its faults, it's a fun blast and a technical masterpiece for any graphics fans out there. The multiplayer is well worth a visit too as all the weapons are unlocked from the start meaning you can tailor your loadout to your finest desires from the start and not have to grind for ages to compete. Be sure to check out my Multiplayer Survival Tips before you dive in though.

This might be one of the cheapest prices we've seen for Tomb Raider, although it's worth pointing out that the GOTY / Definitive Editions usually drop to a fiver during sales. Crystal Dynamics crafted a fine return for Lara Croft in this reimagining of her origins. With a well-crafted story that turns her into the heroine we know and love, a huge island to explore with actual tombs to raid, and a combat system that is up there with the genre’s best, it's hard to argue with the price point above. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!

The title pretty much explains it all, but to clarify - Xbox 360 players will be given free access to Xbox Live Gold starting today, and lasting until October 11th. So, if you're still gaming on your last-gen console and want to try some multiplayer modes in your favourite games - or perhaps have lapsed your Live Gold subscription and want to jump back into the action - you've got three days to get your fill.
If you are after an Xbox Live Gold sub, be sure to keep an eye on our Xbox Live account deals guide for the cheapest prices.
We've talked at length about how the rental system was a ridiculous (and overpriced) idea, but it appears Sony have finally seen the light and offered something much more sensible to consumers. Starting today, PlayStation Now will include a monthly subscription option, allowing unlimited access to over 100 PS3 titles for £12.99 a month. Best of all, a week-long trial is also available, meaning you can sample the service - and test your internet connection, more to the point - before locking into the subscription.Click here to read more...
This isn't the cheapest price we've seen for this one, but it is the best offer around right now thanks to the voucher code above. One of last year's surprise highlights, Brothers delivered a beautifully told solo co-op-like experience that more than worth the price of admission here, even if it is a little short. Thanks to Buzz for the find!
Be sure to check out our Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons review for more details.
We're still a week away from the budget range of 3DS titles hitting the shelves, but the price seems to be getting better by the day. Falling even further below the £15 mark, the titles on offer might not be to everyone's tastes, but there's no arguing how the budget range will be welcome to gamers who find expanding their 3DS library is a strain on the wallet. Here's the full list:
Thanks to Recharg3 @ HUKD!
The title says it all, but to clarify - you can now download the first episode of the excellent Tales from the Borderlands, Zer0 Sum, for free on consoles and mobile devices. Just head to your respective digital marketplace, download it, and enjoy what we consider to be Telltale's finest series to date.
To mark the occasion, Telltale have released a brand new trailer that not only highlights how enjoyable the series is, but gives us a release date for the final episode, Vault of the Traveler.Click here to read more...
In a recent interview with MCV, CD Projekt Red visual effects artist Jose Texeira said: “Cyberpunk is far bigger than anything else that CD Projekt Red has done before. Far, far bigger.”
The first thought that may pop into the head of any Witcher III: Wild Hunt player is probably going to be 'how?' Closely followed by anyone that had to review it with a cry of 'WHY?!' Witcher III is geographically massive. Made up of multiple maps that expand for miles, often requiring a boat to travel to until you unlock fast travel checkpoints. I've still not seen all locations in the game and I've put close to fifty hours in since release. And CDPR are expanding upon it again with the Hearts of Stone DLC later this month.
Do we even want a game that's bigger? I've had my fill of trying to find that damn quest marker over the vast seas surrounding the Skellige islands' map thank you very much. Except, I get a feeling when Texeira says 'bigger' he might not be talking in terms of square miles on a map, or at least I hope he isn't.Click here to read more...

[UPDATE: Well, that didn't last long, Tesco have put the price up to the same as everyone else at £330]
This how you finally go next-gen in style. A new model 1TB PS4 with a copy of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection for just £289.99.
You're looking at nearly £330 for the next best price on this bundle, so don't hang about!
Thanks to CBK.
[UPDATE: Never mind, all gone]
Thief on PS4 is only £5 for a new copy. I'd act fast on this one as it's at least £5 cheaper compared to other retailers.
Some games take forever on next-gen consoles to drop below the £30 mark. Not Thief though, which has been dropping like a stone. Sure, it didn't set the world on fire, but it's a solid enough effort for fans of all things sneaky. Do yourself a favour and turn off most of the guides and other cheaty elements and you'll find the experience all the more rewarding. Here's the Thief Review.

Crikey, talk about a 'reveal' trailer. Laura was unofficial unveiled as a brand new Street Fighter V character a few days ago, but today we can bring you her actual gameplay footage. One look at her in action and we're certainly thinking she'll be replacing Blanka on the day one roster. While her style is a bit faster than the green man-beast, her use of electric shock moves and a Blanka-esque roll move incorporated into her V-Trigger finisher makes us think Capcom have fallen for their own Brazilian bombshell over him. Not that he couldn't appear as an unlockable character post-launch.Click here for the trailer and beta news.
We ran a tasty deal for this one a few days ago, but we're happy to report we've found an even cheaper preorder. Dragon Quest Heroes has taken its sweet time to come to the west and along the way it's picked up a rather massive subtitle. Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and The Blight Below. Quite the mouthful and you can add Day One Edition to that with this preorder which is the cheapest deal you'll find on PS4 today.
The extras included in this edition include the following in-game items: Slime Sword, Goomerang, Gungenir, Gooey Gloves and Squishing Rod. This is a more action-focused take on the Dragon Quest RPG series, but it's still set to come with tonnes of depth as you customise your team of warriors. Take a look at the latest overview trailer below to see the game in action.Click here to read more...
Preorder prices for Call of Duty: Black Ops III are bound to be high, as per usual with the series. So when you see an offer like this you should act fast. There's no need to stack a complicated mess of codes like last time we saw this price, this is simply a hot deal.
Black Ops III is looking like another hit from Treyarch and has a killer triple strike in the form of a futuristic campaign (with four player co-op!), new zombies mode and the ever-green multiplayer.
Thanks to Quikfinder.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was a late Summer highlight and this is the best price we've seen so far.
While it's disappointing that games 2 and 3 haven't been remastered too, the online multiplayer side of the game is a smoother experience than the multi-title Halo: Master Chief Collection. The original Gears of War was the best of the bunch though for many gamers and playing in 1080p and 60 frames-per-second is a tantalising prospect and this discounted price could prove irresistible.
Thanks to BuzzDuraband.
There's less than four weeks to go until the Halo franchise returns for its next big instalment. To help build up the excitement in the meantime, 343 Industries have released an infographic that not only reminds us of the various content that will be available, but gives us insight into things such as how long the campaign will last, how many weapons there will be, and how many maps will be available for the multiplayer. You can view it in its entirety by hitting the jump.Click here to read more...
Yes, it's not 100% gaming related, but we felt it was worth pointing out. If you're an Xbox One owner who likes their sports, this might pique your interest. Now TV are currently giving away 7 days access to the Sky Sports Pass, which grants access to all seven of the Sky Sports channels free of charge. From the looks of it, existing Now TV customers can get in on the action as well, but if you already own the Sports Pass you won't be able to just add a free week onto your existing package.
As always with this sort of thing, you'll need to put in your payment details for this to work, but the interesting tidbit in all of this is that it won't activate automatically - in fact you have 365 days to activate your week's worth of free sports viewing. The offer expires on on October 11th, so get a move on if you want to watch all the football*, all the time (for seven days.) Thanks to Saxon @ HUKD!
*Other sports are available.
