Dishonored: Definitive Edition only £23.49

Dishonored was one of the best titles on the last-gen machines. But if you never got around to it, you may as well hold off for this new-gen Definitive Edition. £23.49 is currently the best price we can find.

In addition to the excellent base game, the Definitive Edition includes the following DLC expansions: The Knife of Dunwall, The Brigmore Witches and Dunwall City Trials. The Void Walker's DLC items are also included. Check out our review of the original game to find out why you need to play it, regardless of platform.

Thanks to nunn.

Yoshi's Wooly World is a Wii U classic at £27.66

Yoshi's Woolly World is one of the best platformers we've seen in a while and we're surprised to see it on sale for as little as  for just £27.66 when it's going for over £3o at many other sites.

Sometimes you just want to chill out with a game and you'll struggle to find a more comforting-looking game than Yoshi's Woolly World on the Wii U. Want to know more? Take a look at Jon's full review. "Yoshi's Woolly World is Nintendo at their inventive best. Delightful and deceptively devious, this sensational platformer encourages you to explore, experiment and genuinely play with it at every turn."

Thanks to Lomi.

Steins;Gate is essential Vita material and only £19.99 [UPDATE]

It may have a spellchecker-worrying name, but Steins;Gate is one of the best Vita games yet according to Jon's new review. Considering it's a new game, we're delighted it's available at such a low price too. UPDATE: Base.com are now stocking it for £19.99!

You can see the anime on Netflix right now if you want to find out what all the fuss is about, but Jon heavily recommends going in game-first if you're completely new to the Steins; Gate universe. Be sure to take a look at Jon's full review too. Or read the short version: "The definitive version of a true modern classic. Steins;Gate presents a truly captivating and uncompromising storyline with exquisite characters, powerful themes and often heartbreaking choices to make. It's a beautiful, essential thing. Making poor choices is easy when you have the power to change the past, but here in the present, make the right choice and buy this astonishing piece of software."

Black Dualshock 4 PS4 controller only £30.44

Look no further for a new Dualshock 4 PS4 controller. These things are hella expensive if you don't shop carefully. Thankfully, we've found a tasty bargains as you can get a black one from Amazon's Warehouse for £30.44. Listing information supported by comments on HUKD tells us that they're only listed as 'used' thanks to some minor cosmetic damage to the boxes -you're still getting a 12 month guarantee. If they sell out or you insist on a mint condition box, you can still get one for the great price of £34.99.

Venom's multi-platform vibrating wireless XT+ headset only £39.99

A vibrating headset. Well, now I've seen (heard?) it all. It would seem Venom really want you to feel those explosions more than ever before with this wireless headset. This headset could be the multi-platform piece you've been after as it's compatible with PS4, PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

If you fancy a cheaper wired version, you can get one for £24.98, but it's not XO compatible.

Xbox One Elite controller doomed to high prices as a GAME exclusive?

Store exclusives are never a good deal for gamers as it allows retailers to charge what they want if they've managed to snag something gamers are likely to want. Usually, we're talking a bit of DLC, that inevitably makes it way onto digital stores later on and is often not worth the extra money anyway.

But what about physical hardware? If reports are to be believed, the upcoming Xbox One Elite controller is now a GAME exclusive in the UK and currently available to preorder at the top-end price of £129.99.

The Top 10 best PS4 games of 2015 so far

We're half way through the year and about to enter the usual summer draught before the manic Christmas season. But if you have a PS4, there has already been loads of great games. But what's been the best? It's a seriously tough call, but we've put our heads together to come up with the Top Ten best games of the year so far on PS4. The list includes a healthy mix of exclusives, multi-plats, indies and big-hitters. Put simply, you can't complain about the draught if any of these are missing from your collection. We've even scoured the net for the cheapest deals for each too.

10: Mortal Kombat X

The Top 10 best PS4 games of 2015 so far

Review: Consider Mortal Kombat X your first essential fighting game of the new generation of consoles. It's best enjoyed with local friends thanks to the easily memorised combos and buckets of gory X-Ray moves and finishers. The story and lengthy Tower options will pad out the single-player experience, but the online match ups are reserved for the more hardcore player. 8/10 - Brendan

Best PS4 price: £33.85

Sleeping Dogs on Xbox One only £9.72

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is incredibly tempting at £9.72 delivered for a 'like new' copy on Xbox One.

Wei-Shen’s undercover exploits in Hong Kong was an absolute blast first time around and ensured the new IP was a genuine contender in a genre dominated by GTA and Saints Row. The graphical upgrade isn’t huge, but at least there’s the bundled DLC to look forwards to, which includes the expansion packs. If the idea of running round Hong Kong as an undercover cop infiltrating gangs sound like fun, that's because it really is. Wei Shen kicks some serious ass and isn't afraid to bend the rules to get what he wants. We say bend the rules, we actually mean hack them into kibble with a meat cleaver.

Loads of Amiibo figures back in stock from £10.99

Listen up, Amiibo collectors. Nintendo have got a load of them back in stock and they're only £10.99 each. Any orders over £20 will include free delivery. If you're just buying the one, delivery will be £1.99. Either way, you're getting better prices than those seen at other retailers and especially the scalpers on eBay.

At the time of writing, the following were still in stock:

Sheik No.23, Samus No.7, Diddy Kong No.14, Pikachu No.10, Yoshi No.3, Luigi No.15, Link No.5, Donkey Kong No.4, Peach No.2, Mario No.1, Kirby No.11, Captain Falcon No.18, Wii Fit Trainer No.8, Luigi (Super Mario Collection), Yoshi (Super Mario Collection), Ganondorf No.41, Zero Suit Samus No.40, Palutena No.38 and Dark Pit No.39.

Solve Murdered: Soul Suspect for just £6.70 on XO

Murdered: Soul Suspect is now available on Xbox One for just £6.70 saving you over £3 compared to the next best deal.

In Murdered: Soul Suspect you play a dead detective solving his own murder. This is more of an old-school adventure game, a bit like LA Noire, but without the action bits. It's not had the best of reviews to be honest, but this is a tempting price nonetheless, especially as it's even cheaper than the last-gen versions. You'd be able to give this a go and sling it up on eBay when you're done and probably recoup most of your money.

[UPDATE: It does seem like a glitch, but it's worth trying. Some of us have managed to get the full game on PS4, while others have ended up with a trial version. Do let us know how you get on]

[UPDATE 2: The glitch has been closed now and the game is back up to £7.99. Well done those of you that managed to sneak a copy!]

Wait. What? This might be a glitch, but it appears that Fez is currently available for Free on PS4, PS3 and Vita. Get on it fast! Our link will take you straight to the game's page on the store.

EXPIRED: Fez going FREE on PS4, PS Vita and PS3! [UPDATE]

The game hasn't aged well in my opinion and by the time it landed on the Sony platforms I found it hard to get past its pretentious attitude and shitty map system. There is a great 2D platformer buried in there though thanks to the neat world rotating mechanic. One purchase gets you the game on all three formats, with the Vita being the best of the bunch for me. But hey, it's FREE!

Witcher III is surprisingly cheap on Xbox One

Usually, in the first few months after a Triple A game's release, you're stuck looking at prices awfully close to the RRP. Here at Dealspwn, we're obsessed with chipping those prices down, and today's voucher code has helped bring The Witcher: Wild Hunt down to £33.25 on Xbox One, which is nearly a fiver cheaper than other websites.

PS4 gamers are looking at £39.44 using the same code, but at least you get the Day 1 Edition at this price which is a few pence cheaper than other sites.

The game picked up one of our Editor's Choice awards in my review: "While the decidedly average combat and alarming number of technical gremlins are disappointing for a title that's been in development for so long, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is still a must-buy title for genre fans. The Northern Kingdoms is vast and beautiful setting, packed with unique adventures and touching tales that you'll find away from the beats of the main story. A title to truly lose yourself in." Don't forget to keep your eye out for all the free DLC too.

Grand Theft Auto V on PS4/XO only £35.86 via voucher

Fancy cutting the price of GTA V on PS4 and Xbox One down to £35.86 for the cheapest price on the web? Be sure to take advantage of the discount code below then as it expires at midnight tonight. A small saving on Xbox One, but PS4 gamers are saving about £5.

This new-gen version of GTA features improved graphics, a new first-person view and tonnes more extra features that make it one of the better remasters out there. It's been selling incredibly well, keeping the price painfully high compared to many other re-releases. It's good to hear that online heists have finally made their way to the game too!

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is cheaper than ever at £17.97

£17.97 for a NEW copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on your PS4 or Xbox One is the best price I've seen for a new copy. A great price and about £7 cheaper than the next best deal. In years gone by, you'd never see the latest COD for under £30 so soon, but don't let the aggressive discounting fool you into thinking this isn't worth a look. Price includes delivery.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been a grand return and reinvention for the FPS series. The futuristic setting has been the perfect excuse to introduce the exoskeleton which gives players double jump and speed boost dodge skills. The campaign was oodles of fun and had the best of Hollywood (Kevin Spacey) and gaming VO actors (Troy Baker) to keep you hooked throughout. Oh, and the multiplayer is better than it's been in years -head straight to Uplink and Kill Confirmed modes to see why. Here's my full review.

Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition may be the most pointless remaster yet

HD makeovers or Remasters are here to stay. Generally, we've nothing against them if they're reasonably priced compared to the last-gen version, or are stuffed with content and offer a decent improvement in the visuals. We had to laugh though when we saw the newly-release screenshots for Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition.

I'm so sorry spellchecker, let's get through this.

Far Cry 4: Limited Edition from £17.52 on PS4 and XO

Far Cry 4 deals on consoles have taken a while to come down, but we're seeing sub-£20 more often now. These 'like new' copies of Far Cry 4: Limited Edition include unused online codes where applicable. A PS4 copy is now available for just £17.52. Xbox One copies are slightly more expensive at £18.95. These prices are nearly half the price of brand new copies.

Far Cry 4 takes the action to the Himalayas and once again proves to be one of the greatest names in open-world gaming. Admittedly, many of the mechanics are the same as FC3, but the new setting makes everything feel fresh enough to dive back in. Plus you get to ride elephants into fortresses or play in co-op with a pal controlling the gyrocopter. PS4 owners will find some 'Keys to Kryat', DLC codes* to give to their friends so they can play co-op with them for a few hours, without even owning the game.

Thanks to Neobrown.

Cheap PS4 Hard Drive Upgrade Guide

A new 1TB PS4 model is coming next month, but aside from the occasional hot deal, you'll find it cheaper to buy a regular PS4 with a beefier hard drive separately. Looking for cheap PS4 hard drive deals is incredibly daunting. I've spent hours browsing through loads of different sites and whittling through scores of drives to ensure these are the best prices and that the drives are compatible with a PS4 console. If you fee like browsing yourself, or double checking any deals below, here are some important specs you'll want to ensure a hard drive has. If it's not listed, try to contact the seller or don't bother.

  • Drive Size: 2.5 inch SATA
  • Height: 9.5mm/0.95cm
  • RPM: 5400 (minimum), 7200RPM is also fine.

Those are the most important elements. Seriously though, look out for that height dimension size as a few 1.5cm drives almost caught me out. Cache speed varies from 8MB to 32MB, but shouldn't make much of a difference in a PS4. I've not listed any SSD (Solid State Drives) as multiple tests on PS4s have shown that any increase in loading times has been marginal and not worth the considerable extra cost over a regular drive.Cheap PS4 Hard Drive Upgrade Guide

Uncharted 4's personality could be safe despite dumping Hennig's work

Uncharted 4's personality could be safe despite dumping Hennig's work

The departure of Amy Hennig from Naughty Dog in early 2014 was one of the saddest surprises in Uncharted 4's development history. Hennig had been creative director at the company and had written and directed large parts of the trilogy. Essentially, without Hennig, the world of Nate, Drake and Sully would be very different indeed.

Naturally, concerns for the health of Uncharted 4 arose when Hennigs' departure was announced and we've just heard via Nathan Drake's voice actor, Nolan North, speaking at Metrocon [thanks Gearnuke] that eight months of story scenes they'd shot we're thrown out. But does that mean that Uncharted 4 could be a very different game with someone else writing the story and directing the actors? It could, as the new leads will want to leave their mark, but on the other hand, it might not be the huge shift in tone that we initially feared.

Uncharted 4's personality could be safe despite dumping Hennig's work

Nolan North had this to say about the transition: "We had shot 8 months of her story and it was all thrown away. The Last of Us guys came in, and you have to understand, new producers, new people, they want to do it. I don’t know what happened exactly. Amy is still a very dear friend of mine and she’s brilliant but the Last of Us guys were the next team there so they took over and they just wanted their own flavour."
