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!
If you're looking to finally get hold of a PS4 in time Christmas, this is currently the cheapest one around by about £20. Yes, it doesn't come with any games, but with a decent library of exclusive games already out, some very big hitters on the way next year, and PlayStation Plus (which is a necessity for online play) continually throwing out things to play, we expect that won't last long once you have one. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!
If you do get this one, be sure to check out our PlayStation + and PSN Gift Cards cheap deals guide as well!
This is the lowest price we've seen for the Occupied Edition on Xbox One, and is surprisingly cheaper than most listings for the standard edition. Considering you get a 20-page travel guide to occupied Britain, a travel card holder, a set of three postcards, and access to the Doom Beta (whenever that starts) along with a copy of the game, it's a bit of a no-brainer. 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. Thanks to Buzz for the find!

FIFA 16 releases for console this upcoming September 15th (check out the lowest available prices). With FIFA, comes unfortunately high levels of frustration. So we think its best to always have a spare Dualshock 4 controller for when RapidSkillz010101 is hammering you 5-1 and you uncharacteristically launch your DS4 towards the wall at accelerated speeds. We're caring like that.
Alternatively, if you want something a tad more limited edition, then Gamestop also have a listing for the 20th Anniversary Edition DS4 at only £44.97, which is a nice £5 saving on the next best price.

In the market for a Playstation 4 camera? Then look no further. This offer from Gamestop sees the PlayStation 4 camera listed at £7 cheaper than the next best competitive price.
There isn't an overly massive amount of things you can do with the PlayStation 4 camera apart from unsuccessful attempts at Just Dance or maybe a few voice commands for switching weapons in Tomb Raider.
It's not the first time we have seen the Sony Dualshock 4 controller around this price, it's been up and down as of late. This is currently the cheapest you can pick one up for beating the next best price by £3.
Their weekly offers only includes the back variant unfortunately, we so could have gone for a Magma Red one, maybe next time, eh?
The 1TB Playstation 4 has just recently made its way onto Amazon.co.uk for a whopping £349.99 (seriously!), but the competition is already hotting up. We reported last week how their .de website were listing it for around £290. Well now we have a realistic UK offering from Gamestop at only £289.97.
Given that the best current price I can find for the 500gb Playstation 4 is £269.99 it's quite easy to identify the deal here as a self upgrade would realistically add £40 or so.
For now or future reference remember to bookmark Brendan's Cheap PS4 Hard Drive Upgrade Guide.
There may be many reasons why you may need to replace your Dualshock 4 controller given that FIFA can ultimately be frustrating at the best of times or you may just simply fancy a change of colour. We personally feel it is our job to take that stress away from you as we scour the internet looking for the best available prices on the black, wave blue, magma red, glacier white and even the new 20th Anniversary Edition DS4.

Batman: Arkham Knight releases next Tuesday and to be perfectly honest we expect it to be bloody awesome. GameStop are fully on the ball to help anybody who is yet to jump on board the next generation train with this Batman: Arkham Knight Bundle.
Granted it's not the Limited Edition Batman: Arkham Knight PS4, but it's a start.

Update: The Xbox One Elite Controller now seems to have made quite a clever disappearing act from Gamestop. It is however listed at Shopt.net for £49.85
So we learned yesterday all about Microsofts new toy. The Xbox One Elite Controller is simply a beast. With an RRP of $149.99 we don't think it was intended to be offered to us as a cheap luxury which has me thinking somebody hasn't told the guys over at Gamestop where they currently have it listed for £44.97.
There is a very high chance that this could become somewhat of a minor pricing error (you would be right in thinking somebody has missed a 1 off in there somewhere) but as the old saying goes "you gotta be in it to win it". Good luck guys.
It's not always about nicking cars and killings zombies you know! You can't beat a bit of family time (albeit drunk family times), belting out the classics.
GameStop have the Playstation 4 Singstar Ultimate Party Bundle for only £299.97 which contains as a bundle:
Following the announcement of the official RRP price drop to £45 last Friday by Sony we have seen a lot of the major retailers dropping the price of the Playstation TV, Gamestop today however seem to have pushed that pricing a little further by pricing the PSTV at only £39.97.
The PSTV allows Playstation 4 owners the chance to stream their PS4 games via remote play, it can also play your Vita, PSP and Playstation One titles on any big screen TV.Click here to read more...
We've long railed against this industry's tendencies towards pre-ordering here on this site. Most recently, we saw five different collector's editions for Watch Dogs, one or two of them filling the reward of pre-order special editions. This has been common for some time: pre-order a game from a certain retailer, get some bonus swag thrown in for free. Usually it's a character skin or perhaps a shiny, golden weapon. But every so often, it might prove to be something meaningful -- a map or two, free DLC, gameplay content not to be found in other versions of the game.
When that happens, publishers and retailers wheel out the phrase "giving consumers choices". But that's utter rubbish. What they've done is slice bits off of the top in a truly anti-consumer move, and muddied the waters of convenience. These days, it's not uncommon to pay full price for 95% of a game.
In short, when retailers get involved with anything other than game distribution and sales, it's a little suspect.
Imagine our joy, then, at discovering that GameStop is preparing to get its sticky fingers even stickier. The world's largest games retailer is apparently looking to become more involved in the development processes of big games. GameStop execs recently met with investment company R.W. Baird to talk about their place in the games industry currently, along with plans for the future. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian has recently revealed, via VentureBeat, "that the brick-and-mortar chain wants to find ways to give customers more value when they preorder games."Click here to read more...
Ready At Dawn boss, Ru Weerasuriya, has slammed the current state of the used games market, saying that although he appreciates the principle of consumers being free to trade in their old games, the current system is far too heavily weighted in favour of certain retailers.
Yes, GameStop, we're talking about you.Click here to read more...
I posited in my section for the roundtable article dealing with the aftermath of E3 that, if anything, this year's show had proved that we're not ready for our own digital future. Microsoft had put plans in place to drag a hefty corner of this industry a few steps further, kicking and screaming into real change and real transition. Instead of limiting themselves by appealing to lowest common denominators when it came to internet services, they'd opted to let that be someone else's problem, forging a controversial path ahead.
That controversy was understandable and expected. Ownership is a big deal.
We'd been begging for Microsoft (and EA for that matter) to show us something new, something forward-thinking and original, and they did just that. But they did it in the worst way possible.
I wrote an article a few weeks back, around the time that Adam Orth was finding out that in spite of most disclaimers that say "my views are my own" the Twitter jury can still find you guilty of misrepresenting the company for which you work, discussing the importance of clear communication, and of understanding consumer concerns.
Microsoft have paid the price for failing to express their vision for next-gen in a positive fashion. The advantages afforded by a system that has you constantly connected have been lost because Microsoft resorted to corporate doublespeak, long-winded, buzzword-stuffed rhetoric that serves nobody. The existence of Xbox Wire -- a website purposefully created to solve this problem -- was undermined by a wave of original press releases that served only to confuse and discombobulate. Don Mattrick's u-turn post was probably the most clearly written entry on the whole site up to this point.Click here to read more...
Following on from Microsoft's announcement yesterday that the Xbox One will now work in a similar fashion to the Xbox 360 when it comes to online requirements and pre-owned games, we pick apart Microsoft's U-turn, we ask what this means with regard to consumers, and weigh up the positives and the negatives of the decision.
Parental Advisory: We've tried to keep it as conversational and informal as possible, and you should be warned that there may be some instances of strong language.

As much as this Xbox One U-turn might seem to be a victory for us gamers, we rather predict that the machinations of some of the larger retailers might have had a hand in Microsoft's decision-making too.
Conspiracy theories aside, GameStop and Gamefly have come out singing the praises of Microsoft for their swift change of heart.Click here to read more...
According to a laughably cropped, awfully mocked-up pre-order advertisement found in GameStop, Battlefield 4 will have three playable factions and bring back the Commander mode from Battlefield 2.Click here to read more...
Microsoft still haven't officially announced the Xbox 360's successor, but Gamestop reckon that it's a seriously impressive piece of kit. The major retailer is convinced that traditional retail will still have an important role to play in the next console generation, but also believes that publishers would like to see RRPs rise to absorb increasing AAA development costs.Click here to read more...
