- Professor Layton & The Spectre’s Call price comparison
Similar to a deal that popped up earlier this year, GAME have temporarily dropped the price for this instalment of the popular Professor Layton series. Around £8.50 separates this deal from the next best offer coming from Base and its affiliates.
The Spectre’s Call didn’t mix things up for the series, but then it never needed to. Bringing more brain-teasing puzzles to keep you busy and telling yet another entertaining tale, this is certainly one title DS owners out there should get hold of while the price is good. Thanks to qwerf123 @ HUKD!
Remember the 90s? Looking for a bit of cartoon nostalgia that you can carry around with you? Well, why not head on over to The Game Collection's website and take a punt on this one while they've still got it in stock seeing as its £4.95 price tag should make you a saving of almost £3 on the next best offers out there. You'll take control of Johnny as he tries to win a date with a girl who's taking part in the Hukka-Mighty-Ultra-Extreme-Date-O-Rama TV show. Thanks to goonertillidie @ HUKD.
- What: Okamiden
- Where: Base.com and all of its merry identical friends
- Current Price: £14.99
- Okamiden Price Comparison
Okami blew our minds - and delivered a colourful, innovative and imaginative experience that genuinely made our lives better. It's increasingly rare DS sequel lacks the punch of the original, but playing as the smaller (and infinitely cuter) sun god wolf pup is still great fun on a portable console. Better yet, the Base group are in stock at a cheeky price - be sure to click on the official price rather than the cheaper marketplace vendor.
Play have once again unleashed their £10 deal for this one, so if you missed it at the end of March and you’re interested in playing this on your DS, or even on your 3DS, now would be the ideal time to invest. A saving of over a tenner separates this deal from the next best offers with stock.
While it’s the same song and dance you would come to expect from the franchise, there are different modes to keep things mixed up with Grand Prix, Time Trial, Verses, and Mission modes to keep you busy. While the price may seem high for a game that came out over six years ago it’s still a worthy addition to anybody’s handheld library. Thanks to bgrnick for the heads up!
While we're waiting for Gearbox to deliver the continually-delayed Colonial Marines, this surprisingly capable DS side-scroller should be more than enough to tide us over. Aliens: Infestation is mechanically sound, respectful of the lore and delivers a fantastic story alongside the Xenomorph-slaying thrills. GAME are currently offloading some stock and will save you approximately £2 compared to Play.com.
- What: New Super Mario Bros.
- Where: The Game Collection
- Current Price: £19.95
- New Super Mario Bros. DS price comparison
Okay, so "new" might not be the right word considering that Super Mario 3D Land is out for the 3DS, but The Game Collection still has a decent sub-£20 deal for the excellent DS platformer. It wowed critics and gamers alike with its sensational handheld gameplay, and still holds up well since its 2006 launch. Prices have remained high for the first party DS title (as usual), and this is currently the cheapest offer around by just under £4.
- What: Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance Pre-Order
- Where: Amazon | Play.com
- Current Price: £24.99
- Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance Price Comparison
Definitely a pre-order for diehard fans only. Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance (3D to its mates) is the long awaited 3DS spinoff for the epic Square/Disney crossover, and promises to resolve a fair few questions (and raise plenty more, let's face it) when it releases at some point this year. If you're definitely going to buy it, and so excited that you can barely sit still, Amazon and Play are undercutting the competition with a £24.99 pre-order price that will almost certainly rocket upwards nearer to release. Order now, forget, pay less and play later.
- What: LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
- Where: Amazon Jersey ( Wii | DS )
- Current Price: £10.00
- LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Wii / DS price comparison
- LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Review
This deal provides users of Nintendo’s systems the choice of playing at home or on the go, as Amazon Jersey has dropped the price for the Wii and DS versions to a tenner. While it isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen, it is the current best with a saving of £2 on the Wii version, and £4 on the DS version.
While at its core it is more of the same, there is plenty of content to keep completists happy, it handles incredibly smoothly, and it is definitely the best looking, and arguably most fun, LEGO game to date. At a mere tenner, it’s definitely worth a look at. Thanks to babyblue @ HUKD!
- What: Professor Layton And The Spectre’s Call
- Where: The Hut
- Current Price: £14.95
- Professor Layton And The Spectre’s Call DS price comparison
We posted a cracking deal for this one a few days back, but this trumps it by a fair margin. The Hut have reduced their price to the magic £15 mark, and while other retailers have also lowered their price, The Hut’s offer remains the best by around £3.
The Spectre’s Call, didn’t mix things up for the series, but then it never needed to. Bringing more brain-teasing puzzles to keep you busy and telling yet another entertaining tale, this is certainly one title DS owners out there should get hold of while the price is good. Thanks to Rhys135 @ HUKD!
- What: Aliens: Infestation
- Where: The Game Collection
- Current Price: £12.95
- Aliens: Infestation Price Comparison
While we're waiting for Gearbox to deliver Colonial Marines, this surprisingly capable DS side-scroller should be more than enough to tide you over. Aliens: Infestation is mechanically sound, respectful of the lore and delivers a fantastic story alongside the Xenomorph-slaying thrills. The Game Collection are currently touting the cheapest price around, which undercuts the familiar hard deck by a couple of quid at the time of writing.
