This is a cracking little trio of games. Assassin's Creed: The American Saga features Assassin's Creed III, the better Assassin's Creed Liberation HD, and the frankly excellent Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Cheers Buzz!
Not only is there a ridiculous saving of over £40 compared to the next best offers elsewhere, it actually works out cheaper than a standard copy at the time of writing. The SDWW Edition comes with 12 inch replica of the in-game Dub Step gun, a pocket-sized Dubstep Doomsday Button, and an 8 inch Johnny Gat Memorial Statue. Perfect for fans of the Saints Row series, or for those who want to destroy the world with Dubstep. Thanks to Lomi @ HUKD!

Max Payne 3 is only £3.99 on PSN (PS3). Click here to buy it! >>
Max Payne 3 may not be the best game in the series, but it's certainly a cathartic and intense shooter in and of itself. Less film noir, more slow-mo abattoir. Either way, £3.99 is an incredibly cheap PS3 deal and a great spot by Spark @ HUKD!
Remember that you can download a couple of free DLC packs too.
Today's instalment of PlayStation's 12 Deals of Christmas is all about zombies and monsters and horrible things. The Evil Within is down to £24.99 and £13.99 on PS4 and PS3 respectively, with The Walking Dead: Season One down to £6.49.
All deals are due to go live at 12.00pm GMT and end at 11.59am GMT 48 hours later.Click here to read more...
You can now pre-order Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin on PS4 or Xbox One for just £34.18. That may sound a bit pricey for a remaster, but this edition does at least come with all three DLC expansion packs and a brand new world in the shape of the frozen landscapes of Eleum Loyce. Online features have been rebalanced and tweaked too. Head on over to this site and you can use a voucher code to get an additional 10% off. To get the code to work, you may need to sign up with a fresh email address.

What a difference a week makes for Assassin's Creed Rogue. Last week this was a tenner more expensive at most sites. Since then, I've finished the game (it's a bit great) and it's seen a generous discount. Head on over to this site and you can use a voucher code to get an additional 10% off. To get the code to work, you may need to sign up with a fresh email address. Note: You can use the code on multiple games in the same transaction, so keep an eye out for our other deals to get some more hot prices.
Rogue is a follow-up to last year's Black Flag. Compared to Unity, this is a masterpeice. The combat's not broken, there's a rich and varied world to explore and yes, ruddy big pirate ships are back in. If you had fun with Captain Kenway, you should snap this one right up.
It may not be in the same league as Mario Kart, but for a fiver LittleBigPlanet Karting is a great stocking filler for those with a PS3 and spare controllers for local co-op action. By using the voucher code below, it beats the next cheapest deal by £5.
Thanks to Lomi @ HUKD!
Assassin's Creed: Rogue is much better than Unity. But then it would be, what with it being an Arctic-set sequel to Black Flag that has you romping about the northern seas as a swagalicious Templar. Pick it up for just over £20 at Zavvi now.
NB. You'll need to use the code WELCOME on a new account to get it at this price. Cheers oUkTuRkEyIII!

If you know what any of these things actually are then go for it and happy hunting! Thanks to brad25577 @ HUKD.
Dust off that PS3, racing fans! Gran Turismo 6 is now just £13 at John Lewis as they've reduced the price to clear stock.
I've got a huge soft spot for Sleeping Dogs. It's one of my favourite open-world games in recent years because it jettisoned a massive, sprawling world in favour of something a little tighter, but more polished in every regard. It's not just that the slightly smaller size of the game world (and it's still pretty big) allows for a more dense map, filled with things to see and do, but all of the various systems were mechanically excellent -- the combat, the driving, the stunts, all of it.
The Definitive Edition is nice and all, but there's really no reason to pay in double figures for a spit and a polish when you can pick up the original for £4.
It's a freakin steal at £4.
When is a deal not a deal? When you're charging £35 for a game that's fallen down to £30 in the past, that's when. The trouble is, retailers have been hiking the price of Destiny back up above £40 in anticipation of the new content drop.
It's worth noting that you can still pick up Destiny pre-owned from Grainger Games for £19.99. You can also buy new copies of the game for £2-3 cheaper than Sony's offers by heading to Rakuten and making use of the GIFT40 voucher code.
In any case, here's the latest slew of "deals" in PlayStation's 12 Deals of Christmas initiative.Click here to read more...
Every Sunday, we'll be diving into the Dealspwn archives to bring you an article or review from yesteryear. This week, with Uncharted 4 making headlines in the wake of its dazzling gameplay showcase at the PlayStation Experience, we take a look back what is still probably the finest Uncharted title out there - Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Hype and video games can be a cruel mix. But it can also be wonderful when a game smashes the door down and delivers everything it promised. Any adulterous thoughts PS3 gamers may have been having concerning a fling with Gears of War will be washed away with this bona-fide PS3 exclusive classic
We start with Nathan Drake wounded and hanging over a blizzard ravaged cliff inside a train cart. As you make your way up the side of the train you can feel the epicness coming as you make a last-ditch escape. For a short while from here the game stumbles for the following chapter with a stealth level to set up the story. There's nothing really wrong with it. It’s just too early in the game, we’ve been waiting to get involved in the juicy shootouts for months, but we’ve got to sneak around first.Click here to read more...
In a very generous move last night at the PlayStation Experience in Vegas, EA has decided to celebrate 20 years of PlayStation by giving away three free games on PSN. This includes Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare on PS4, Mirror's Edge on PS3 and the Vita version of Need for Speed: Most Wanted. You only have until the end of the day though to get them for free, so get them now! Head on over to each platform's PSN store to download them. Or sign into the website and prime the downloads via these links.
If your hard-drive is a bit full, you can always start the download then cancel it straight away. The game will still appear in your download history for you to freely download at a later date.
I've been looking for a new PS Plus deal for ages and this is the best online price I've seen, even without the 5% off as most sites (including eBay) are sticking to £40. I was hoping for a bigger discount around Black Friday, but to be honest, this is the best price I've seen all year.
To get 5% off (normal price £35.99), just like the site's facebook page. If you're not redirected to a code, try this link. Tablet and mobile users may have to tell their device to look for the desktop version of the site to get it to work. If you've already used this trick before, just unlike the page, like it again and pop your email address in the box that appears and a code will appear on-screen.
This is an essential purchase for new PS4 owners as you need it to play games online. The main benefit to membership is a regular plethora of free games though. One membership covers PS4, PS3 and Vita and there are loads of freebies on them too. This is a great last minute present or one for any new Sony console owner. The code will be emailed to you straight away and is stackable on top of any existing membership.

Happy 20th Birthday, PlayStation. We figured that we'd take a trip down memory lane, reminisce about some of our favourite PlayStation memories, and ask our readers to do the same.
When it comes to standout memories of the Playstation brand, there are two that come to mind. The first was when I was 14 and still primarily a PC gamer. The last console I had bought was a Sega Mega Drive, so I had yet to dive into the new-fangled craze that was Playstation, but all that was to change just a week before Christmas. You see, I had just bought Men In Black: The Video Game on PC, but my machine wasn’t having any joy running it well enough to play. My best friend Paul had come round to see if we could fix it, but neither of us were as clued up on troubleshooting PCs as we are now. As such, and I couldn’t tell you what he did, Paul tinkered with something that bricked the computer. I was distraught – not being able to play my new MiB game was bad enough, but now I couldn’t play even play Civilization II. Then, in a sign of true friendship (or more likely though a horrific feeling of guilt), Paul loaned me his PSone and his copy of Metal Gear Solid over Christmas.
There was a catch, though – he forgot to give me a memory card.
So there I was experiencing a game like none I had played before, and I had to do it in one extended session. If anything, the lack of save game facility heightened the tension despite the fact you could press continue upon dying. It meant that every action I made couldn’t be undone. It was glorious and terrifying in equal measure (especially the Psycho Mantis bit) but ultimately it showed me that home consoles were capable of delivering gaming experiences that could match or even supersede those found on PC. While I didn’t purchase another console until the PS2, that Christmas with the PSone changed everything for me as a gamer, and it was all thanks to Metal Gear Solid.Click here to read more...
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a marvellous games. It's brilliant, beautiful,and it'll bring you to tears within the first ten minutes. It's also under four quid over on the PlayStation Store and you should buy it immediately.
Here's what I said in my review: "One of the best JRPGs of the last decade, Ni No Kuni is in many ways a love letter to a genre slowly fading away into obscurity. Brimming with imaginative aesthetics, and packing a hefty emotional punch or two in spite of its rather clichéd story, Level-5 and Studio Ghibli have worked wonders to whisk us away to another world. An utter triumph in roleplaying escapism in a game that manages to stand on the shoulders of the genre's best to deliver a modern classic."
Just buy it already. Cheers bernardsfingers!
Tales from the Borderlands: Episode One is three of the most rewarding hours I've spent with a videogame in quite some time. A game has to be excellent to make me punch the air, let alone compel me to dance around the room to Busy Earnin' during the end credits.
I'm not sure what I expected, because my heart sank when I first heard that Telltale were simultaneously taking on Borderlands and A Game Of Thrones. They may be riding high on critical acclaim now, but it wasn't so long ago that they rushed out too many licensed releases too fast while quality slipped and slumped. Were Telltale starting to slide back into bad habits?
No. Not only is Zer0 Sum a cracking yarn that brilliantly sets up a Borderlands-themed adventure, but it's actually strong enough to stand on its own as a frankly superb interactive movie. The best way to start a new series is with a game that can hold up in and of itself, and Zer0 Sum nails it.
Plus, on a much more basic level, it's... fun.Click here to read more...
