If you skipped out on the PS3 during the last generation, this bundle will get you up to speed with a bunch of remastered gaming highlights. Buying them separately would cost around £60 at the time of writing, meaning you're effectively getting a 1TB console for about £230. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!
Here's a great way to jump onto Microsoft's latest console if you want all the football. Included with the Xbox One console is a copy of FIFA 16, and there's even some tokens thrown in for use with the FIFA Ultimate Team. On top of that, there's also a free month of EA Access, meaning you'll be able to play the games currently in the Vault, gain access to new EA titles before anyone else, and get a 10% discount on all digital purchases. Cheers to Buzz for the heads-up!
When you take into account the cheapest deals for both of these titles, as well as how there's a £10 voucher thrown in this bundle, it actually works that you're paying just £200 for the console, which is a pretty good deal overall. Just scroll down to the Special Offers, select the deal at the checkout to get it for this price. If you must have two of the biggest releases this year as you jump into the current-gen (or even just to complete your console line-up) this is a great way of doing so. Cheers to Buzz for the heads-up!
If you've been swayed by the thought of playing Halo 5 or Rise of the Tomb Raider this Christmas, and want to make sure you have plenty of hard drive space, this offer is a great one to consider. It might not come with any games, but it's the cheapest deal by £50, which is a huge saving. With plenty of well received games already out, and even more on the way in 2016, now might be the opportune time to grab one. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
It's a blink-or-you'll-miss-it deal here - an Xbox One console (without a headset) for £200. Perfect if you're looking for a cheaper way to get into the current-gen. There's limited stock though, so be quick!
This one's an interesting and tempting deal, provided there are other things on Rakuten that you wish to buy. With the 20X reward points promotion currently ongoing, this listing from ShopTo means that you're effectively getting an Xbox One console for £200. You can then use the £50 credit to get a game (or games) of your choice to go with it, although they will almost certainly be delivered separately. Thanks to quano @ HUKD!
Don't forget that you will need an Xbox Live subscription to play games online, so why not check out our cheap Xbox Live Gold & Xbox Live Gift Cards guide to help you get sorted?
Did you know that Microsoft made a blue Xbox 360 with a 500GB hard drive? Honestly this is the first I'd heard of it, since this limited edition SKU was released in fairly short supply.
However, one of the few retailers that still stock them are back in business for only £179.99. You'll get the azure console, controller and two free digital games into the bargain: Toy Soldiers and Max And The Magic Marker.
I'll level with you: you can get an Xbox 360 for much less than this. But if you absolutely must have the Blue version with its seriously decent hard drive, it doesn't get any cheaper than this, since they're otherwise going for upwards of £240 elsewhere. Thanks Gooner!
The New 3DS XL is an excellent piece of kit that improves on a fantastic portable console with small yet smart new features, all of which will add up over the coming years. If you plan on getting into Nintendo handheld gaming, the New 3DS XL is the console you want, while original 3DS owners should seriously consider an upgrade to take advantage of the vastly increased comfort and enhanced gaming experience.
You can read all the detals in our New 3DS XL review.
Interested? If so, think fast, because you can now buy a New 3DS XL for only £159.99, as much as the regular 3DS tends to cost elsewhere! Thanks to serialvelocity1 for a great spot.
We've already reviewed the New 3DS XL, which is a fantastic piece of kit for serious handheld gamers, but here in Europe it's not the only option on the table. The New 3DS includes all the extra inputs and new features -- faster processor, C-Stick, Super-Stable 3D, Z bumpers and more -- but manages to cram them into a much smaller form factor at a lower price point. With swappable cover plates to boot.
I must admit to writing off the New 3DS as a bit of a novelty, especially given its no-show on the other side of the Atlantic, but Nintendo were kind enough to lend me a review unit which I've been thoroughly testing over the last seven days.
Consider my eyes well and truly opened! While the 3DS XL was a great console that only needed small refinements, the original 3DS was deeply flawed in a number of respects that have all been completely shored up. Far from a gimmick, the New 3DS is actually a seriously impressive little machine that might even be more suitable for some players than its big brother.

Unlike the New 3DS XL, which has remained almost completely unchanged in terms of dimensions, the New 3DS has put on a bit of girth. Or love handles, to be precise. Clocking in at 142mm x 80.6mm x 21.6mm (compared to 134 mm x 74 mm x 21 mm), it's slightly but definitely chunkier in all but depth, which still lends the clamshell a slim form factor that can easily slip into a regular pocket or bag.
This extra heft is very much appreciated, though, as it allows the New 3DS to deliver a range of sweeping improvements starting with a larger screen. The top 3D screen has increased in size by a factor of 1.2 (3.88 inches vs 3.53 inches), which is still piddling compared to the beastly New 3DS XL or almighty Vita, but original 3DS owners will notice a massive difference in terms of comfort and viewing distance. The resolution remains the same, but in practice you'll actually be able to see more of the fine detail in better-looking titles.Click here to read more...
The Nintendo 2DS is the cheapest way of accessing Nintendo's fantastic handheld games library, and you can currently pick one up for less than £50 in this scorching deal.
The 2DS makes a few sacrifices for its low price, such as the lack of stereoscopic 3D, mono audio and hingeless wedge design, but it is capable of running all DS and 3DS games and presents a comfortable, hardwearing and most importantly cheap alternative to a New 3DS or New 3DS XL. Thanks, Karen!
The New 3DS XL is here, and it's brilliant. Its predecessor, which we affectionately refer to as "The Bigness" here at the office, already improved on the original 3DS in every way imaginable, providing greater comfort, practicality and an infinitely superior gaming experience.
Now The Bigness is even better, as the New 3DS XL finally corrects the most blatant design flaw in Nintendo's handheld line while adding a faster processor, stable stereoscopic 3D, onboard Amiibo support and a range of extra tweaks. The result is the most desirable handheld console on the market if you're even remotely serious about portable gaming.
However, it becomes significantly less desirable if you already own an old-model 3DS XL, since many of the new features lack games that truly take advantage of them yet. Seeing as the firmware, onboard software and basic user experience remains unchanged, this review will largely focus on the hardware itself, meaning that newcomers might want to brush up on our 3DS XL Review, 3DS hardware review and 3DS onboard software review first.
The New 3DS XL measures in at 93.5mm x 160mm x 21.5mm, making it very slightly smaller and surprisingly lighter than its predecessor too. It's still a beast of a clamshell in terms of surface area with a largely unchanged form factor and overall design, but remains relatively slim, allowing you to slip it into baggy jeans or coat pockets with little fuss. The rounded design, coupled with its heft and reduced weight, makes for a comfortable console to hold for long periods, a far cry from both the original 3DS and Vita.
Once you open the console, you'll note that the two screens are exactly the same as the original 3DS XL as far as size and resolution are concerned, while the stereo speakers are no less capable (naturally you'll want to rely on headphones while playing on the move, mind). The full compliment of face buttons, triggers, circle pad and D-Pad also return in familiar locations, but benefit from a round of extra machining and refinement, feeling pleasingly solid and responding to your touch with satisfying clicky feedback.Click here to read more...
In the market for a New 3DS? Then you're in luck, because the new Rakuten Voucher Code will let you grab a screaming deal at under £135.
The New 3DS is a neat bit of kit with boosted processing power, super-stable 3D, built in Amiibo reader and customisable faceplates. However, I'd suggest the vastly more comfortable and practical 3DS XL for serious handheld gamers.
Use voucher code XBOXONE for the £50 discount!
This retailer deal was only open to select customers until only a few moments ago, until they decided to open the floodgates and allow everyone to join in. You can get an Xbox One console for just shy of £260, which is a serious discount, though cheap console bundles often work out as better value if you want to hit the ground running, I know a fair few people who've been stockpiling games for just such an occasion. Thanks to Jakirrr21 for the original tip!
Is it time you bought an Xbox One? Microsoft's console certainly delivered on a fantastic Christmas 2014 and has some major exclusives lined up this year, with some interesting boutique and experimental projects lined up in the interim. Perhaps now's the time to strike, so long as the games you want are either on the system already or fast approaching.
Here's a hot Xbox One console bundle that you can tweak to your specifications.
£319 will net you an Xbox One console, Forza 5 and your choice of one of seven free games:
Naturally we'd suggest getting either GTA V or Evolve to maximise your savings. A great spot by dipsylalapo @ HUKD!
Yes, Knack is terrible. No, you don't have to play it. Instead, you'll have cheaply bought into the PS4 on the year when its 'greatness awaits' motto is set to be coming true - with Amazon Warehouse providing more peace of mind than you usually get buying used. Thanks jura1!
Yesterday's sub-£100 scramble lasted only a few seconds, but this cheap Wii U console deal is here to stay. At this price, the Wii U really proves its worth as a truly essential second console, providing a wealth of incredible exclusives that enhance and expand your gaming life alongside your gaming PC, PS4 or Xbox One. Thanks chompyrud and esq3585 for the updated price!
Remember to use voucher code JANSALEDAY5-7 for the extra discount!
Talk about transformation. The Xbox One went from bloated shambles to fighting fit console in a single year, with a tasty new RRP and a fantastic games library. If you've been waiting on the fence, however, this new voucher code deal will let you get an Xbox One for just over £250. 2015 should be a great year for Microsoft's machine and there's plenty to catch up on.
If you're in the market for an Xbox 360 and don't mind the limited 4GB onboard storage, £109 is cheap as chips considering the magnificent gtames library Microsoft's console has to offer. Remember that you'll need to Click & Collect from store to avoid paying postage. Thanks to siddhant4u @ HUKD!
Make sure to use voucher code JANSALEDAY3&4 for the saving! Many thanks t0 lukefez @ HUKD.
The Wii U has the best games of 2014 and some of the most exciting games of 2015, though you'll have to buy them individually with this very cheap solus deal (and be aware: there can be some hidden costs such as an external Hard Drive if you plan on downloading a lot of digital games).
I've described the Wii U as a "must-have" console - click here to read why!
PS4 Black & Glacier White now £287.99 at ShopTo/Rakuten.
Make sure to use voucher code JANSALEDAY1&2! If you're in the market for a solus cheap PS4 console, this is currently the best deal around now that Gamestop have upped their prices to normal retail levels. Many thanks to DaveWallace @ HUKD!
