And the price keeps tumbling. This is the best deal we've seen for the Nathan Drake Collection, and it currently beats the next best offer by a huge margin. If you missed out on the Uncharted series during last-gen, or just want to stay busy until Uncharted 4, this is fantastic value. After all, you're basically getting three games at under a fiver each. Don't forget that you'll also get access to the Uncharted 4 beta with this purchase, which is due to kick off next month. Thanks to markt91 @ HUKD!
Be sure to check out our Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection review for more details.
Well, this is a hell of a deal to kick off the new week. You're effectively getting the console for around £35 when you consider that the cheapest price for a Mario Kart 7 download code is just over £15. While the wedge-like form factor makes it less portable, the 2DS is still capable of playing most of the 3DS' extensive library of excellent games. Perfect for those of you thinking about a certain day in under 2 months time. Cheers to FantasyDeals @ HUKD!

Here's a great offer for those of you that want to finally jump into the current-gen with the release of FIFA 16. Along with a copy of this year's footballing effort, you can also get a free PlayStation TV, which allows you to stream your PS4 to a different screen as well as being able to play select Vita titles. The listing suggests that you can only have one or the other, but it's been confirmed that you can add both items, which makes this bundle a fine deal. One final note - the PS4 on offer here is the "B Chassis" and not one of the new builds that are quieter and slightly faster. Thanks to nunn @ HUKD!
If you do get this bundle, be sure to check out our PlayStation + and PSN Gift Cards cheap deals guide as well!
While we've seen bundles at a similar price in the past that come with a game and / or a small memory card, this deal is currently the cheapest around by about £20. So, if you're looking to experience the extensive 3DS game catalogue on the cheap, or want to buy a device that the kids won't be able to break the hinges on, this is is definitely worth considering. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!
With a catalogue of titles including New Super Mario Bros. 2 (review), Mario Kart 7 (review) and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (review) the 3DS is possibly the best handheld gaming option on the market at the moment. This latest deal from Tesco on their eBay page can land you a refurbished Nintendo 3DS for only £69.99.
Alternatively, if white isn't quite your shade then you can grab a brand new pink 3DS for £79.99 from the guys over at the GamesCentre.

If you've yet to dive into the current gen of consoles, but are still curious about The Evil Within, this latest price drop is worth a look. Overall it will save you around £2-4 depending on your console of choice, and there's a Tesco Clubcard boost for those of you interested in that sort of thing. As we pointed out in our review, The Evil Within is a callback to the survival horror genre of yesteryear, but other than some rather grotesque scares it doesn't really push the envelope. Then again, if that's what you're after, you'll end up loving it. Or screaming at it. Probably both. Cheers to oUkTuRkEyIII for the find!

Here's one of the lowest prices we've seen for the last-gen console versions of The Pre-Sequel, with Tesco's latest deal working out around £3 better than the next cheapest deals elsewhere. Although it didn't really offer anything particularly new, and the story didn't capitalise upon the potential that was there, it doesn't change the fact The Pre-Sequel is great fun, especially in co-op. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

"I wanted to love this game so very much, and the ideas behind it are innovative and interesting and far too good to deserve a mediocre showing such as this. But sadly that's exactly what Murdered: Soul Suspect is to be honest. Pretty mediocre." - Murdered: Soul Suspect Review | Valar Morghulis (4/10)
It's not the best game in the world. I got very bored very fast whilst playing it and I think Matt hit the nail on the head with his 4/10 review. That said it's a next gen Playstation 4 game at £6.70. Might as well.
Opinions most definitely differ where Beyond: Two Souls is concerned. When Matt reviewed it back in October 2013 he didn't seem too impressed saying:
"Two Souls presents a massively overblown sci-fi carousel of high melodrama that's sadly undermined completely by an antithetical focus on routine choices and fine detail for the player, numerous plot holes and a lack of tension and mystery, and the squandering of its one truly unique selling point. The high calibre performances from Beyond's star-studded cast can't save Beyond from being little more than a discussion piece designed to be seen and not touched."
But at only £5.00 it's definitely worth a purchase to make your own mind up if you are still yet to play Beyond: Two Souls.
Thanks to FantasyDeals over on HUKD for this great find!
Update: Well that was quick, seems the one they possibly had in stock was snatched up quick!

But it's only £6.70 now!!
Update: Tesco have now dropped the price from £229.99 to only £219.00!
If new isn't something that overly bothers you and your in the market for a next generation console then £219.99 seems like a cracking price doesn't it?

EA and Crytek have released a new trailer that reveals some of the backstory behind the soon-to-be-released Crysis 2, as well as showing off the nanosuit to advantage with some more juicy gameplay footage.
Just watch it. We take no responsibility for involuntarily-leaked bodily fluids during the presentation.
Now the NGP is out in the open, Sony has sworn that they won't repeat a few major mistakes that dogged the launch of the PS3. Whilst their home console is undoubtedly now a huge success after a slightly shaky start, things could have gone a lot smoother.
Firstly, SCE President Shuhei Yoshida confirms that several features were left out of the NGP in order to ensure as attractive a launch price as possible. Sony's 2006 E3 conference left many gamers agape at the staggering launch price of the PS3- which was far too high even considering its powerful specs.
There were elements that we found pretty cool, but had to set aside to remain on target.
It's a big lesson we learnt from the PS3. There's no point putting everything you want into a device and doing the math later. We always had the price and consumer in mind. We had to sell something that people could buy. - Shuhei Yoshida to EDGE Magazine
Price is one thing, but the PS3's major early weakness was Sony's future-proofing policy. Sony freely admitted that the PS3 was designed to be difficult to develop for so that graphics would steadily improve throughout its lifespan- which is a neat idea in theory that shafted studios in reality. Luckily Yoshida has announced that the NGP will deliver an accessible development platform.
We had to make the development environment for NGP as 'easy' as possible. Today, many teams are familiar with the PS3 and are used to including a variety of effects in their titles.
Based on this expertise – and also the working habits they developed working on PS3 – we had to make development on the NGP as natural as possible – an extension of the PS3, if you will.
The NGP promises to be an "extention of the PS3" in any number of ways, and we'll keep you posted about any whiff of launch price or new info that we dig up. [via EG]
Hype is so rampant within our industry that even videogame announcements get their own announcements these days.
First up is the Assassin's Creed series. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has confirmed that the next AC title will be a full boxed retail release as opposed to a downloadable offering; whilst stating that we'll have to wait until May for a full reveal. The project itself should be out before the end of the year.
We won't give you full details but what we can say is that we will have an Assassin's Creed also this year. But we are going to give you more details about the game in May.
May it is, then. To bide the time, why not get involved with our debate about what time periods may feature in Desmond's next outing? [EG]
Now onto THQ, whose loquacious boss confirms that Relic Entertainment are hard at work on their next RTS project. Danny Bilson tells us that the studio behind the Homeworld and Dawn Of War franchises will make a full announcement in... wait for it... August.
At least this gives us plenty of time to theorise about what their next title actually is. Naturally the smart money is on Dawn Of War III... but we'd give our eye teeth for another Homeworld sequel. We'll keep you updated down the line.
The internet nearly exploded when deal hunters came across a Tesco 20% off sale that seemed to include the Nintendo 3DS. This worked out as £157 per unit, resulting in a truly incredible saving and countless hurried preorders. However, it appears that this deal was simply too good to be true. Tesco have confirmed that this offer does not include the 3DS (scroll down to the bottom)- and their terms and conditions allow them to change the price of preorders before they're dispatched.
If, by mistake, we have under priced an item, we will not be liable to supply that item to you at the stated price, provided that we notify you before we despatch [sic] the item to you. - Tesco T&Cs
Damn. We'll keep an eye out for other 3DS deals.
