Now this is a bit more like it. Today's Amazon Black Friday Week Lightning Deals have got Xbox One bundles, Turtle Beach headsets, and copies of Rocksmith 2014 up for grabs.
Remember... You won't be able to get these deals from the product pages themselves, you'll have to click "Add to Basket" off of the splash page. But be quick as there's limited stock for all of these deals. Once they're gone, they're gone.
Here's the rest of today's upcoming Lightning Deals schedule:
(NB. All times are in GMT)
We will, of course, be bringing you all of the hottest gaming deals across our site, the Dealspwn Twitter stream, and Facebook page throughout the insanity of Black Friday week and all throughout the Christmas retail season. Make sure you've got our general games deals stream and console bundles channel bookmarked, and if you have any questions or queries, do be sure to pop a comment into our forum.
Rocksmith is outstanding, it really is. By smooshing together Rock Band and an extensive virtual suite on how to play an actual guitar, Ubisoft have created a gamified marvel. The Mac Stoire currently has the 2014 version of the game down at around £8.82, but you're paying for a Steam key, so PC owners can take full advantage of this deal too.
If you're yet to acquire a Rocksmith Real Tone cable -- the interface that allows you to plug your guitar into your platform of choice -- it could be worth shopping around the marketplaces for a bundle deal. But you can pick up the cable for around £15-20 on its own, and there are still plenty of retailers stocking the solus version (without the cable) for upwards of £30, so this is still a pretty damn good deal.

If Guitar Hero and Rock Band unleashed a fire in you to become a rock god, we'd advise checking out Rocksmith. Here you can plug in a REAL electric guitar (sold separately, of course) and be put through your paces with a series of lessons, drills and games to give you some genuine skills. Be sure to check out Matt's full review for more information. Note: this is the solus edition of the game, you'll need to track down a cable for it too if you don't have one already.

Do you suck at guitar? Well, this new Rocksmith 2014 PC deal from Funstock Digital might be able to remedy that.
If you put in the work, that is.
Previously best know for their outstanding array of retro goodies, Funstock have just opened a new digital store, and to celebrate they're selling several games for ridiculous prices, the PC version of Rocksmith 2014 being one of them. Do be aware, though, that you're basically paying for a Steam key, so you'll need to invest in the Real Tone cable before you can start playing, but this is a damn good price, saving you well over a tenner on the competition.
It's day 2 of Amazon's week-long promotion of flash deals, and while we will try to highlight anything that stands out, we felt it would be best to just give you a schedule of what will be coming throughout the day. Battlefield 4 (read out review here) has already been reduced this morning, with the Xbox 360 version's deal now expired, but you can still pick up the PC version for £22.99 until 12:15 GMT (or until stock has run out.)

Here's the rest of the schedule (with reviews where available:

Man, I suck at the guitar. This wasn't always the case, mind you. I used to know my way around a fretboard relatively well (relative to a donkey) in younger years. To this day, Jon and I will reminisce about that time we had back at uni when a few friends came round and we managed to jam out a 17-minute long mashup of Phantom of the Opera and Knights of Cydonia with several guitars, a keytar, and a penny whistle. It was awesome.
How awesome? We'll never know. We were drunk and we've never been able to replicate it sober.
The reason I tell you this is because it's important that you know I went into Rocksmith 2014 having not practised in years, with the soft fingertips of a mediocre stringsmith who hadn't picked up an axe in months, and who was never especially brilliant to begin with. To this day, I still struggle with barre chords and making my little finger do anything besides hovering around uselessly.
Several weeks after spending time in the company of Rocksmith, however, and I'm making severe progress.Click here to read more...
Batman: Arkham Origins is all over this week's charts, storming in at an impressive number one. Even GTA V and FIFA 14 couldn't hold off Warner Bros' prequel, despite it receiving a relatively muted critical reception in comparison to Rocksteady's titles. Elsewhere, Moshi Monsters: Katsuma Unleashed has made its debut in ninth place -- whatever it is -- while Rocksmith 2014 has charted in fifteenth.
Otherwise, expect the same old faces and a LEGO blast from the past.Click here to read more...
Rocksmith 2014 allows players to plug in a real guitar and learn how to play it through some kind of impossible techno-magic from beyond the pale [otherwise known as a USB adaptor - Ed], packing several improvements compared to its original predecessor. An expanded selection of 'Guitarcade' minigames let you subconsciously hone your skills in an overtly gamey way, some of which feature in this new trailer.
We're mainly excited about electric Ukulele mode, to be honest. We've always fancied learning a bit of Formby.Click here to read more...
Ubisoft have dumped the plethora of trailers from last night's E3 press conference online, and here's a few we missed in our sleepy haze. Hit the jump for Watch Dogs goodness, a slightly schizophrenix Blacklist showing, new jamming opportunities with Rocksmith's upcoming Sessions Mode, and lots of money-maker-shaking in Just Dance 2014.Click here to read more...
