Pick up Uncharted 3: Game of the Year Edition for just £5.86. Go on, it'd be rude not to.
Naughty Dog's Uncharted series is one of the best brands seen on the PS3 and their last game packed in more thrills than two summers of cinema blockbusters. The Game of the Year edition includes the paid DLC for multiplayer and co-op stages, both of which are way more fun than they ought to be considering the series is mainly known for its excellent single-player campaigns. Great action, plot, visuals and characters make this an essential package for any gamer. Thanks, Turkey!
You can currently pick up Persona 4 Arena Ultimax for £18.70 on PS3, but if you're a massive franchise fan and you need some extra merch to show your colours, Rice Digital are still offering the Fan Edition complete with a Deck of Tarot Cards and a free T-Shirt for £5 less than anywhere else. Not that many other retailers have stock in the first place!
Considering that many stockists are charging upwards of £25 for just the game itself, this is a bit of a steal, so long as you crave the extra swag.
As far as I'm aware, there is no standard edition of the game, but £13.67 is a great price and the cheapest deal we've ever seen for Tales of Xillia 2. Don't forget to use the discount code too.
This edition includes a steelbook and a CD of dev-selected music tracks. I really enjoyed the original game and have been tempted by this one for a while. Well, when I can find a spare forty hours or so to really lose myself in it that is. Unlike many JRPGs, the action ditches the polite turn-based battles for real-time attacks with you switching between party members on the fly and working with specific partners to unleash unique combo attacks.
As you'd expect, you'll have to rummage through a lot of tat to get to the good stuff, but there are some gems to be snapped up here and huge savings to be made! Here are a few of my personal highlights.
And loads more. Thanks Gooner!
Want to get into Skylanders: Giants, but don't need a portal of power? Get the Skylanders: Giants: Booster Pack for just £7.99 on PS3 & Xbox 360 at Xtra Vision.
This contains the PS3 or Xbox 360 game, 1 Tree Rex Skylanders Giant, 1 Character Poster, Sticker Sheet with Secret Code and Trading Card. Thanks Gooner!
Alternatively Toys R Us will let you Click & Collect for £4.98... if you can find anywhere in stock. My nearest store with stock is 31 miles away, but it's worth checking just in case.
Fancy saving £4 on Persona 4 Arena: Ultimax? Head on over to Base and bag yourself a copy for just £18.99.
This follow up to fighting title Persona 4 Arena, continues the story immediately afterwards with events focusing on the 'real world' rather than the 'TV world'. If that made sense to you, then get involved in preparation for the RPG Persona 5. Don't disregard this as a mere spinoff, the Persona brand has rapidly made a name for itself in the fighting genre and is one of last-gen's best hidden surprises.
Thanks to uwantsum.
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 now £9.99 at Rice Digital.
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.
And a crazy, gorgeous and somewhat short and limited project from Suda51. You can read our Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day Review for the full story, which pushed me to my limits since reviewing anime is really not my field, despite the amount I've watched over the years.
oJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. That's fine. It's not supposed to, unless you happen to be a die-hard British fan of Hirohiko Araki's superb but cruelly under-localised manga.
For everyone else, All Star Battle is a slightly stiff fighting game in which you can defeat your enemy with a thousand baseballs and ride a horse around the arena. Or summon robotic bees and deadly bubbles mid-battle. Making sense is for chumps, and £9.99 is a bargain. Check out our JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle Review for all the details!
[UPDATE: £8.91 Xbox 360 deal added]
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is on offer right now for PS3 at just £9.
Lightning Returns brings the lacklustre XIII trilogy to a close with Lightning taking a lead role and replacing the party system with interchangeable outfits. These come equipped with unique abilities assigned to the controller's face buttons, giving combat a real-time edge. The combat is improved but the stagger bar is still there to drag out every single boss fight. Oh, and there's a time limit to finishing the game. A time limit in an RPG, *shakes head*.
Thanks to Rens11.
Better late than never. Rockstar has confirmed that GTA Online's heists will finally be deployed on March 10th for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions, followed by the PC version on April 14th.Click here to read more...
Dragon Ball Xenoverse is the game we've been waiting for.
I'm not just talking to Dragon Ball Z fans, even though this is by far the best tie-in to date. Dimps have nailed the raw mechanical thrill of the series' legendary aerial battles as we freely soar over expansive 3D levels at supersonic speeds, throwing down on fan-favourite characters with ridiculously OTT attacks, Ki Blasts and trademark special moves, smashing foes through the scenery as we brawl in the air, underwater and throughout familiar locales.
We'll drill down into the details later, but the fact is that Dragon Ball Xenoverse is one of the most important manga/anime videogames ever since it finally addresses a missed opportunity that has gone sadly ignored for years. For the first time, we're able to truly enter an anime franchise's universe -- not as a player, but as a character. We'll create our own avatar from a huge selection of options, skills and equipment, then see how we stack up with Goku, Vegeta, Raditz, Frieza as we fight with and against them, whether alone or teaming up with friends online.
Xenoverse's premise is very clever indeed. The Dragon Ball timeline is under threat from a mysterious new force who seek to unbalance key events in the canon (from the first battles with Vegeta to the Ginyu Squad's body-changing shenanigans, Frieza's entrance and beyond) for their own nefarious ends. A chronological police force headed up by Trunks is desperately trying and failing to keep history intact, and in a last-ditch move, petition Shenron himself to send a champion capable of going back through time and restoring the canon to its original state. With extreme prejudice.
The champion, of course, being you. Me. Us.Click here to read more...
After more than a year of waiting, Grand Theft Auto Online will soon be receiving its long-awaited Heist missions, and a major new leak shows us what we'll be shooting, driving and using to complete our capers once Rockstar finally deliver the goods.Click here to read more...
Save yourself a few quid with this deal for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix for £14.95 on PS3 - the cheapest price 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 Base for £10.99.
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.
Grab a cheap copy of the Batman: Arkham Trilogy for just £10 on PS3 or PC.
Time is a slippery bastard, so we understand that for some reason or another, some of you just might not have played the excellent modern Batman Arkham series yet. Don't worry, we forgive you, but if we're going to carry on being friends, you should sort this out by picking up the Arkham Trilogy for just £10 on PS3 or PC. It includes Arkham Asylum, Arkham City and Arkham Origins.
Thanks to safctopcat.
[UPDATE: The 360 version is available at Tesco for £5 while stocks last.]
This PS3 or Xbox 360 Borderlands Collection includes the first two games for just £6.95.
While lacking the expansion DLC content provided by the individual Game of the Year editions, this is still tremendous value for money as Borderlands 2 alone is generally around the same price as this collection. Gearbox's cel-shaded FPS series is more of an RPG take on the genre, which has been adored by millions since launch. Newbies should note that these games are much more enjoyably when played online if you don't want to face a lonely grind. Get involved!
If you're looking for a cheap Disney Infinity 2.0 playset, SimplyGames are currently charging £17.85.
Remember that SimplyGames are also selling select Disney Infinity 2.0 figures for £5.85 apiece, and these playsets are fully multi-platform! Thanks to tomwright156 @ HUKD.
I was impressed by Disney Infinity 2.0's figurines and sandbox mode, but criticised the playsets in our full review. Click here to find out why!
Fancy a bit of Resident Evil Revelations HD from just £11.69? We've got you covered.
Revelations is a more of a traditional outing for the series, so a little bit clunky, but with more horror than action. But at least it's not drawn out into a never-ending borefest like Resi 6. This HD port has given the game a serious graphical boost over the 3DS original, making this the definitive edition for your underfed survival horror needs. With an episodic sequel out soon, this is great price to catch up on the story, although the two are independent of each other really.
If you're after something utterly bonkers then look no further than Catherine. A refreshingly adult story that explores the relationships between one guy and two very different girls. The responses you give during prompted scenes allow you to explore different routes and will poke questions at your own personality. Interesting, but slightly let down by the rest of the game which is a bizarre block-moving platforming puzzler where you must escape nightmarish giant enemies like terrifying babies, knife wielding hands and other things that will have you scrubbing your brain before trying to sleep. At over £10 cheaper than the competition, this is a great time to give this oddity a shot.
The new PlayStation Store deals of the week are now live, featuring a massive sale to celebrate the Vita's anniversary.
There are some fantastic games here at serious discounts (links all go to our reviews!), including the magnificent Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and decent sequel Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair for £14.99 apiece, Dragon's Crown at £14.99, Disgaea 4 for £14.99, Killzone Mercenary at £6.99, Persona 4 Golden for £14.99, Soul Sacrifice Delta only £11.99, Tearaway for £6.99 and so much more.
Seriously, so much more. There are also plenty of PS3 and PS4 discounts up for grabs too. Check it all out below!Click here to read more...
LittleBigPlanet was a masterpiece. Had it just been a platformer, we'd have criticised it as being a floaty and imprecise, but its campaign was just a tutorial for a massively powerful editing suite that let you create your own content, levels and even entire games. Play Create Share was the name and LittleBigPlanet was the game that started it all.
It's the Essentials Edition, so you'll get the new box sleeve, but the game itself is still a fascinating way to express your creativity and design some utterly bizarre things. Before deleting it all and downloading levels from players who actually know what they're doing! Another great spot from FantasyDeals.
