The reductions undercut some of the more popular websites to buy PC peripherals from, and we've got a few highlights for your consideration. For the full list of offers, click here or on the banner above to head over to the official Razer store. Please note: you must put in the voucher code below to get the advertised prices.

Get The Last Of Us Remastered on PS4 for just £24.85 from Amazon

It isn't a part of the Black Friday flash deals, but this price for The Last Of Us Remastered is definitely worth considering. Amazon's listing beats the next cheapest offer by around £8.

Improved textures and frame rate, along all the previously released DLC, makes this a definitive package that is absolutely worth getting if you didn't play it on PS3. Hell, at this price it *might* be worth making the jump even if you did already play it. Meh, that's for you to decide. Thanks to imax84 @ HUKD!

Get Minecraft on PS4 for just £9.99 from The Game Collection

It's a repeat of a deal from last month, but what the hell - it's Black Friday and it's a great price for Minecraft on PS4. This offer from The Game Collection will save you a few quid over the next cheapest offer elsewhere.

I'm not sure what else is left to say. It's Minecraft - you already know if the blocky sandbox title and its endless nightmare of Creepers is what you want. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

Get The Evil Within on PC for just £9.40 from GMG

Yet another deal from Green Man Gaming's VIP section, this time for The Evil Within. The saving is pretty substantial too compared to the next cheapest offer elsewhere. Please note that you will need to be signed into Green Man Gaming for this deal offer to work, otherwise you'll be greeted by a 404 page. Or, worse still, have to pay £2 more through the main listing, and we don't want that.

As Matt pointed out in his review, The Evil Within is a callback to the yesteryears of survival horror genre, but it doesn't really push the envelope before some rather grotesque scares. Then again, if that's what you're after, you'll end up loving it. Or screaming at it. Probably both.

Get Wolfenstein: The New Order on PC for just £9.40 over at GMG

As expected, Wolfenstein: The New Order has featured a fair bit during the Black Friday week so far, but this deal for the PC version is an absolute bargain. Please note that you will need to be signed into Green Man Gaming for this deal offer to work, otherwise you'll be greeted by a 404 page. Or, worse still, have to pay £2 more through the main listing, and we don't want that.

Harnessing old school gameplay and pairing it up with a sense of style, we felt that The New Order a glorious return for the Wolfenstein franchise in our review. It also proved that single-player-only FPS games still have a place in modern gaming. Oh, and there are killer robot dogs. So plus points all round, basically.

Get BioShock Infinite for just £3.99 on PC from Gamersgate

The next set of deals are up on Gamersgate, and today's highlight sees BioShock Infinite fall to the £4 mark when you put in the voucher code below at the checkout. While there's a chance it could see further reductions via other sales, as its stands there's a saving of around a fiver to be had.

The debate still rages as to whether it was the masterpiece we had waited so patiently for, despite it's solid combat mechanics. That said, at this price none of that really matters, as for a fiver it's a ride worth taking.

Get Diablo 3 on PC for just £9.99 from CDKeys

Hot on the heels of Blizzard's sale, CDKeys have slashed the price of their listing for Diablo 3. By bringing it to the £10 mark, it undercuts the next cheapest deal by £6.

The improvements to the game since it's original release have made Diablo 3 a much more fun and rewarding experience. Admittedly, the better content (and class) are reserved for the Reaper of Souls expansion, but for the asking price here it's definitely worth a look.

50% off both Guild Wars 2 & WildStar

Not to be outdone by Blizzard's earlier zinga of a deal, NCSOFT have unleashed their own set of deals by halving the current price of their flagship MMOs. The offer sees both Guild Wars 2 and WildStar fall below the £20 mark, making it an excellent opportunity to investigate two highly enjoyable online experiences.

A few bits of housekeeping - Guild Wars 2 is subscription free but contains optional microtransactions for mainly cosmetic items, although they have recently started charging for access to previous episodes of its ongoing Living Story (which, from what I hear, is worth the investment.) Meanwhile, WildStar does have a subscription of £8.99 per month, but a purchase comes with 30 days of game time, so you'll have plenty of time to decide if life on Nexus is for you. If you need more details, before to check out our review for Guild Wars 2 and WildStar for the full lowdown.

Rocksmith 2014 Edition PS4 Review | Plug In Baby

Let’s begin with a bit of housekeeping – those of you that have bought or played Rocksmith 2014 Edition on PS3 or Xbox 360 will find an almost identical experience with the current-gen version. All the new modes and functionality used to improve the experience returns, as does the ability to access any song bought in previous titles as long as you stick with the same family of consoles (eg. PS3 to PS4). So, with that in mind, you can probably skip towards the end of the review for critique specific for the current-gen version.

For the rest of us, be it those uninitiated to Rocksmith or have remained with the previous version, Rocksmith 2014 continues to provide a way for budding guitarists to learn how to play and improve their skills. Tutorials cover the basics, including setup and posture, all the way to advanced techniques such as trills, hammering, and bending. Video demonstrations and repeatable interactive sections are well presented, easy to follow, and gives opportunity for intermediate players to perfect other skills before jumping into the track list proper. For someone who was always more of a Rhythm guitarist than a Lead, it meant I could venture into new areas of play without having to start over completely.

Blizzard joins the deal-based fun with its Battle.net sale

Opportunities to get Blizzard games on the cheap as usually far and few between, but they've decided to unleash a sale of their own on Battle.net during this week of Black Friday offers. Everything from their recent back catalogue has been reduced, with the highlight being an eye-watering offer for almost all of World of Warcraft. Details are below...

So, that's everything bar the latest Warlords of Draenor expansion included in the WoW offer for £4. As for me, considering how disappointed I was with Diablo 3 initially, and how its Reaper of Souls expansion basically fixed everything, even I'm tempted by the latest offer featured here.

Get all of Telltale's The Walking Dead for under £12 from Gamersgate

The latest deals of Gamersgate's Black Friday offers has gone up, and this is by far the stand out deal. You can get hold of all parts of The Walking Dead adventure series - that means Season 1, its 400 Days DLC, and Season 2 - for under £12 overall.

That's over 20 hours of some of the finest storytelling to hit our medium in the last few years, with some heartbreaking choices to make along the way, for an absolute bargain. Please note that you will require Steam to redeem and play Season 1 and 400 Days, but Season 2 needs to be redeemed through Telltale. Before you ask, no - the fact both games are acquired through different platforms will not affect save game continuity, but I appreciate it's a faff and annoying.

Get Diablo 3: Ultimate Edition on PS4 / Xbox One for just £32.99 from Amazon

This isn't a part of the on-going Black Friday countdown flash deals, but this listing is one of the cheapest we've seen for the current-gen versions of Diablo 3. Overall, there's a saving of around £5 compared to the next best deal elsewhere for both consoles.

The transition from PC to console has been expertly done by Blizzard, as we discuss in our review. The fact it comes with all the content (and fixes) that have been produced since the original launch makes this version of Diablo 3 great value for money. More to the point, it's lots of fun - especially in local co-op. Thanks to  slento86 @ HUKD!

Get Sunset Overdrive on Xbox One for just £32 from Tesco

If you're an Xbox One owner who enjoyed some free time with Sunset Overdrive over the weekend and want more, this deal from Tesco is certainly worth a look. It's not a part of the Black Friday shenanigans, but it sure feels like it, beating the next cheapest deal by around £5.

In our review, Jon said that Sunset Overdrive's "infectious energy, breathtaking traversal, silly weapons and violently colourful playground make for a brilliant way to blow off steam." In other words, it's Insomniac getting back to doing what they do best - bringing the fun. Thanks to waaqii @ HUKD!

Get South Park: The Stick of Truth on PC for just £8.74 from Amazon

Curiously, Amazon have not included any games within their Black Friday countdown deals, but you wouldn't think that's the case with this listing for South Park: The Stick of Truth. It's the cheapest we've seen the PC version fall to, and will save you around £4 over the next best offer elsewhere. Please note that this is for a download code to be redeemed on Steam.

As Brendan points out in our review, Obsidian Entertainment have managed to create an enjoyable and authentic South Park experience thanks to the involvement of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. With a combat system that is surprisingly deeper than it appears, it would seem that The Stick Of Truth has ended up being worth the wait - despite the hilarious censorship issues. Thanks to Dezzza123 @ HUKD!

Get an Xbox One with five games for just £349.99 from ShopTo (via eBay)

It may not be Black Friday yet, but it sure as hell feels like it with deals like this appearing. Although doesn't include the latest titles, or include a Kinect camera, this Xbox One bundle is a fantastic bargain with five well received games at just £350.

Titanfall, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Forza 5, Battlefield 4, and Metal Gear Solid V are included here. If you've been holding out on jumping to the current crop of consoles, this might be the right time to do so. Thanks to coolboy101 @ HUKD for the find!

Hitman and Ultima get the bundle treatment in GOG's DRM-Free Fall sale

It's all change yet again in the GOG.com DRM-Free Fall sale, with two new bundles making their way to the front page. For the next 24 hours both the Hitman and Ultima franchises are reduced, with the bundles coming under £5 each.

Hitman: Codename 47, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, and Hitman: Contracts provide plenty of assassination scenarios to get through, while the Ultima series - 1 to 9 - lies in wait for those after ab obscene amount of old-school RPG action. Thanks to Dichotomy @ HUKD for the heads-up!

Get Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on PS3 for just £19.99 from The Game Collection

Today's flash deal from The Game Collection brings the PS3 version of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel to the lowest we've seen. Sure, there's a good chance this might pop up in the Black Friday sales, but the current saving of a fiver over the next best deal, plus the fact it's below the £20 mark, might be enough for fans to give it a whirl.

Although it didn't really offer anything particularly new, and the story didn't capitalise upon the potential that was there, it doesn't change the fact The Pre-Sequel is great fun, especially in co-op. You can read all about it by checking out our review. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD for the heads-up!

Get an Xbox One with GTA V & Forza 5 GOTY Edition for just £329 from AmazonIt might not be a part of Amazon's Black Friday countdown promotion, but this Xbox One bundle is still worth bringing to you attention. Coming in at a price normally for just the base console, the fact it comes with two well received games makes it all the sweeter. Plus, you know, the huge saving.

The remastered version of Grand Theft Auto V has been getting rave reviews, making it yet another last-gen port given new life on current-gen consoles. Meanwhile, Forza 5 doesn't quite hit the heights of its predecessor, but petrolheads will no doubt enjoy the luscious visuals it provides during the driving experience. Thanks to TheMo123 @ HUKD!

Get Dragon Age: Inquisition on PC for just £29.99 from SimplyCDKeys

The deal for the current-gen console versions is pretty good, but PC owners can get hold of Dragon Age: Inquisition for under £30 thanks to this offer. It will save you around £7 compared to the next cheapest offer elsewhere, and you'll get the code to redeem in Origin within 24 hours of the games release.

Word from around the net suggests that BioWare learned their lesson from Dragon Age II, and have ensured that its sequel is a top-notch affair in almost every regard. We'll no doubt have our own opinion to share with you in the near future, so stay tuned.
