Save yourself a few quid with this deal for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix for £12.70 on PS3 - the cheapest price I've seen in a while yet. That's a lot of Disney/Square-Enix mashup for your money.
If you're yet to pick up Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix, you can pick it up at for £11.65 by using the same code.
Like the first collection, we’re getting the fancy pants versions of the games that were previously not seen on these shores. So you can look forward to Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and the formerly PSP-only Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Final Mix. A compilation of HD’d (yes, it is a word) cutscenes from the Nintendo DS title Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (not a word) has also been included to attempt to bring you up to date with the complex branching plotlines as the series has spread like wildfire across numerous consoles and handhelds. I’d be surprised if Kingdom Hearts III arrives this year, but even so, you better get cracking. Oh and Square, feel free to include Pixar stuff over Frozen, that snowman twerp is not joining my party.
Thanks to Sheogorath.

Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien, Ellen Ripley's daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother's disappearance.
Murdered: Soul Suspect is now available on PS3 for just £6.
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.

Looking for a fantastic anime compilation from new and old talent? With a playable game from Suda51 as part of the package? Well it's your lucky day, since Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day is less than a fiver £4.85 on PS3, the cheapest prices we've ever seen.
It's a feature-length compilation of five standalone anime shorts, each hailing from a luminary in the field or left-field upstart. We have an opportunity to savour Shuhei Morita's Oscar-nominated Possessions, a fascinating and playful tale of animism that puts Pixar to shame, while Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo sallies forth with the breathtakingly lovely Combustible. Hiroaki Ando and Gundam mech designer Hajime Katoki join them, bringing unique storytelling and eyepopping visual flair to the mix.Click here to read more...
This week's PSN deals on PS4, PS3 and Vita are all about Arcade Classics, including legendary titles from Capcom and Bandai Namco.
First off, though, the Telltale Game Collection is currently £32.99 on PS4. Not exactly an arcade classic but we're not complaining.
Meanwhile, on PS3, you can grab masterpieces like Golden Axe, Final Fight, Metal Slug and Daytona USA for peanuts, while the brilliant Pac-Man Championship Edition DX is also slashed down to size. PSP and Vita fans can also enjoy loads of PlayStation classics from Ridge Racer to Tekken. As always there are extra discounts available for PSN+ members, so be sure to check out our PlayStation + deals guide for the best prices!
We reckon the highlight is probably the Namco Fighter Collection, which includes Soul Calibur V and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for just £7.00.Click here to read more...

J-Stars Victory VS+ is one hell of a crossover. Starring a huge cast of Shonen Jump manga and anime royalty, it's custom-designed to answer some age old fan questions in utterly insane two-on-two bouts. Who would win in a fight: Monkey D. Luffy or Naruto? The cast of Bleach or the Saiyan of Dragon Ball? What would happen if Toriko and Assassination Classroom fought to the bitter end?
The answer depends entirely on your skills as you smash foes through buildings and brawl across expansive 3D stages with the same superhuman abilities we love from their respective series, putting the Kamehameha up against the Hokuto Hundred Crack Fist. Though originally released exclusively in Japan, us Western otaku will finally be able to get involved with J-Stars Victory VS+, which is set to release this summer on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.
Now that I've sampled the latest PS4 build, I'm happy to that that it's coming along nicely... and also thrilled that Fist Of The North Star's long-suffering Kenshiro should finally star in a game that's worth a damn!

Gran Turismo is widely (and rightfully) hailed as one of the most realistic racing series around, so much so that your skills in the game can actually give you the experience you need to race for real. GT Academy has already managed to transform skilled players into podium winners, including Lucas Ordóñez who races in the Super GT500 championship in Japan and Jann Mardenborough who won an F1 feeder series GP3 race last year. Both will race for Nissan this year in the top LMP1 class of the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours.
GT Academy is making a return this year and we've got all the details below.Click here to read more...
Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin is the definitive version of a masterpiece, both remastering the visuals and radically rebalancing the experience with new enemies and monster placement, alongside a performance boost, new items and exposition. Along with all of the DLC as standard.
Check out our 9/10 review, but spoiler alert: it's brilliant. Be aware that it's also a great way into the entire Souls series for newcomers. The next-gen versions are graphically superb, but if you've yet to make the jump it's now less than twenty quid on PS3 and Xbox 360 at Base.com!
A Godzilla game doesn't have to do much to impress us. We just need to stomp around as a massive monster, smash cities to pieces, wipe out some puny humans and brawl with fellow Kaiju in apocalyptic showdowns. In fairness, Bandai Namco's upcoming tie-in will let us do exactly that.
Based on the spirit of the Japanese originals as opposed to the 2014 film, Godzilla puts us in direct control of Godzilla or any of his big stompy ilk, from Mothra to King Ghidorah and Space Godzilla, and throws us straight into a fully-destructible town. As towers crumble around you and helicopters buzz about like gnats, it's a little like playing Earth Defence Force in reverse.
However, based on what I played at a recent hands-on preview opportunity, Godzilla is on a worrying trajectory. Whereas Earth Defence Force is a masterpiece disguised as a 'so bad it's good' B-movie, Godzilla is currently so bad it's just... bad... and seems to be asking for a very ambitious amount of money considering its gameplay and production values.Click here to read more...
Free to play MMO shooter Defiance has received another massive update this week, with the new Alcatraz content going live. As the Earth Republic deals with fallout on the east coast, survivors are turning to a new beacon of salvation in the west: The Rock itself. This prison-turned-island-base has become a staging point for Expeditions, daring progressive raids against massive threats across (and beyond) the New Frontier.
However, you can also grab some nifty in-game goodies with a new voucher code, including a Cyber Rig, 3 uncommon Cyber Chips, 3 Chip Pullers and 3 Hunter Requisitions. Just redeem the code 'ALCATRAZ' on the official site, and make sure to link your account if you play on consoles.
The roguelike genre has been spreading through the videogame genres over recent years in everything from RPGs to platformers, but now we have one for the FPS genre too. And it's an absolute delight for anyone that remembers shooters before aiming down the sights was a thing.
The graphics-style may appear dated, but for the most part the controls are incredibly smooth and the twitch-handling is a fond throwback to older shooters; the responsive controls are fantastically fluid as you strafe enemies or nip between the hail of slow but thick storms of enemy fire. It has to be said though, there's some awful slowdown in the larger rooms when they try to pack in too many enemies at once. It's not a regular thing though.
Tower Of Guns' premise is simple; you must fight your way through the eponymous Tower of Guns with one life to make it through multiple procedurally generated (random) rooms. That's right, one life. You begin with a truly awful pistol too; even the game mocks its firepower. Enemies are all mechanical and often canon-based. So expect rows of turrets, floating tanks, flying mines, buzz saw turrets and the like.
If I'm honest, enemy variation isn't great and the small number of bosses repeat and grate very soon. But this really isn't the sort of game you're meant to play for hours on end. It's a fun shooter to play when you have an hour or so to kill. Although, some runs will certainly end sooner if you don't keep an eye on that health bar.Click here to read more...

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is going to be fun. Properly, ridiculously, outrageously, magnificently good fun.
How could it not be? As we learned with Pirate Warriors 2, Eiichiro Oda's outlandish characters and the irrepressible personality of the series are a perfect fit for the glorious chaos of the Dynasty Warriors template, allowing us to pulverise hundreds of hapless goons with the same barmy attacks and superhuman abilities we love in the anime.
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is going to push that fusion of personality and pulverisation even further on PC, PS3, PS Vita and PS4, adding both new fan-favourite characters, new mechanics, a new storyline and features into the formula while upping the ridiculous factor. Having tested the latest PS4 build and spoken to Executive Game Director Hisashi Koinuma, I can honestly tell you that it was the most fun I've had in ages.
You could even describe it as... "SUUUUUUPER!" But I won't. But it is, at least, so long if the preview build is a taster of things to come.Click here to read more...
Amazon.co.uk have Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition on PS3 listed at just £16.95 delivered. Unfortunatly the X360 version of the game is £23.95, but if you head over to base.com you can grab a copy on the X360 for just £16.99 so no massive difference.
This Ultimate Evil Edition contains both Diablo III and the Reaper of Souls expansion set, together in one definitive volume.
Want to see what Godzilla looks like on PS4? Then you're in the right place as we have a new gameplay trailer, showing off multiple monsters going at it from Godzilla's long movie history. You might not know it from the trailer, but this is a full-priced release coming to PS3 and PS4 in July. Call me skeptical, but if we questioned whether Evovle was worth £40, Godzilla is certainly facing a uphill struggle. That said, if this summer is anything like last year, we'll be desperate for any new game. There, and I thought I wasn't going to be able to say anything nice.
Stay tuned to Dealspwn.com as Jon went to a preview day at Bandai Namco recently and got his mitts on it. Take a look at the trailer below and see the King of Monsters in action.Click here to read more...
Just a quickie for my fellow JRPG fans: Tales Of Zestiria is still on course to release in the UK this Autumn, as you can see via the brand new trailer. Expect plenty of questing and an all-new adventure along with the cel-shaded visuals and exceptional combat we expect from the series.
However, and I've been dying to tell you this since the Level-Up 2015 preview event last week (NDAs are fun), Tales Of Zestiria will also feature dual English and Japanese dubs. Fans have requested this feature forever, so it's great to see Bandai Namco include the option.
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is set to be fantastic fun. Having played it at Bandai Namco's Level-Up 2015 event last week, I can personally attest to the fact that its ridiculous combat, insane attacks, new gameplay features and anime-inspired visuals left a massive grin on my face. Stay tuned for our full preview later today.
It's coming to PC, PS3 and PS Vita, but Executive Game Director Hisashi Koinuma told me that they've been using the power of the PS4 for more than just shinier visuals when it comes to the current-gen console version.Click here to read more...
