Still got a X360 with a Kinect and looking to get a little extra use out of it? Well for £3 you can get hold of this entry in the Fable series from The Game Collection, saving you around the same amount over the next cheapest deal. The Journey manages to make the world of Albion a much more engaging place to visit, but the terrible aiming mechanics (and the certainty it will destroy your arm muscles) hamper the experience. Still, for under £3 it could be a good reason to return to the Fable franchise, or dust off that Kinect sensor. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

Microsoft has revealed this week's Xbox Live deals on Xbox One and Xbox 360 games.
They ain't great.
On the Xbox One side of things, Sunset Overdrive can be bought cheaper on CDKeys, while Chariot was free only a few months back though co-op fans will find it £6 well spent. Meanwhile the Xbox 360 sale seems to be taking place several years too late, with deals on golden XBLA oldies like Crystal Defenders, Gyromancer and the undeniably magnificent Space Invaders Infinity Gene. I suppose that something had to give after all the Christmas sale goodness.
Either way, click below for the deals and bookmark our games deals page for tastier discounts!Click here to read more...
Call of Duty: Ghosts is only a fiver at Tesco right now on last-gen platforms.
Ghosts isn't exactly the best game in the series, and it's significantly better in multiplayer on the new-gen platforms than on PS3/Xbox 360, but it's still worth romping through for a fiver if you've not yet upgraded your machine and fancy some big, dumb, explosive fun. Cheers ViolatorX!
Been tempted by Ninja Gaiden Z: Special Edition? Well, we've found a deal even better than last week, as you can now get it on both formats for £2.86. This version includes a comic book and digital soundtrack.
We have to admit, Yaiba is something of a stain on the Ninja Gaiden series. But if you're desperate for some hack n' slash action, this may be worth a look at such a low price. Hell, it's cheaper than a bad pint of ale. The cel-shaded visuals are a refreshing new look for the spinoff, but we're not sure zombies are the best adversaries Ryu Hyabusa has ever faced off against.
Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII.
£89 for an Xbox 360 console, Forza Horizon and Halo 4 GOTY edition? There's never been a better price for the 360 console and this is a perfect time to pick one up if you never got around to it last time - we're looking at you PS3 and PC gamers. There are plenty of hot exclusives to catch up on and they're dirt cheap nowadays too. Be sure to take a look at the other Forza titles and the excellent Gears of War series for a start.
What's the catch? Well, the box is marked as damaged, but the contents are intact. So, unless you have an odd box fetish, there's no reason to not pick this one up.
Thanks to TootsVanGarfield.
GRID Autosport is just £14.99 at Grainger Games on PS3 and Xbox 360.
GRID Autosport isn't just an apology to irate franchise fans; it's an enormous and polished racer that caters to fans of practically any racing discipline. From TOCA and Formula 3 to street circuits and party games, online and solo, Autosport lets you race on your terms, even if it lacks personality off the track. Cheers Turkey!
The Witcher 2 is now free to download for Xbox Live Gold Members. Click here to download! >>
Or don't, because the Xbox.com listing has mysteriously disappeared at the time of writing. You should still be able to get it from the Xbox 360 storefront, though. Matt describes this painstakingly ported sequel as "fit for a king" in our The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition Xbox 360 review.
This week's Xbox LIVE Deals With Gold go live today, with discounts on Warframe boosters, Terraria, and Never Alone on Xbox One, and a big fat 2K sale for Xbox 360 fans with BioShock 1 and 2 down to £3.74 each, Mafia II at the same price, and the excellent Spec Ops: The Line for under a fiver.Click here for the full list of deals >>
Get 12 months of Xbox LIVE Gold with Zoo Tycoon and Viva Pinata for £35.99 from GAME. Click here to buy >>
This barnstorming deal was under £30 around Christmas, but even so, £35.99 is still a bargain for a year of XBL Gold and two cracking games. Do be aware that Zoo Tycoon is for Xbox One, and Viva Pinata is an Xbox 360 code. We're still awaiting a good Rare title on the new-gen platform, and no, Kinect Sports Rivals doesn't count. Cheers JonnyEricEdwards.
Destiny and I did not get on. After buying it to be part of the conversation, the brief honeymoon period wore off to reveal a slot machine disguised as a shooter and endgame content with only the most cursory game in front of it. As I wrote last year, it would have been my biggest disappointment of 2014 were it not for the slew of broken games that released against it. I therefore casually wrote off its sales success as the result of Sony's third-party hype and the limited number of quality first-party titles on the PS4 thus far, uninstalled it and got on with my life.
But it's still charting like a champion. Millions of people bought Destiny, and more importantly are still playing it on a daily or weekly basis. Did I miss something? Was I wrong to dismiss it so quickly? Out of professional interest more than anything else, I reinstalled it and delved back into the Tower.
Several days later and I realise that I might have been a bit too hasty after all. Though still disappointing in numerous ways, Destiny is winning me back, and I've finally put my finger on why that is. The answer might surprise you.

Last week I ran a New Year's Resolutions piece based on what developers and publishers should try to do to have a better year. Well, last year I put forward seven resolutions that we, as gamers, should follow to get the most out of our gaming time. So we're giving it the 'From the Vault' treatment. How well did you do? Take a look at my suggestions, which can still be attempted today. It's always good to discourage Kane & Lynch too.
Seeing as the apocalypse couldn’t quite be arsed turning up, it looks like we better shape up and carry on with the tradition of making up New Year’s Resolutions that we have no intention of keeping. Or maybe not. While eating five fruit and veg a day and swearing less is a distant and obscene pipe dream, there’s plenty of room to improve our gaming time with some healthy steps to enjoying our favourite past-time to its maximum potential.
Blame the Christmas schedule or our distraction for newer shinier things, but it’s high time we finished the games we started. Especially the ones we were enjoying! Shorter games like Black Ops II and Uncharted: Golden Abyss were probably finished by most. But longer efforts like Assassin’s creed III or Borderlands 2 are typical of the sort of titles that may get distractedly abandoned around the 60% mark. Finish these games before buying new ones and not only will you avoid having to restart because you’ve forgotten the controls and the story, your next game will probably be cheaper too.Click here to read more...
When you're trying to bring high-speed brutal action into the Metal Gear Solid universe, there's only one developer to call. Platinum Games. The team behind Bayonetta and God Hand created a gory and outrageous masterpiece that sees you cutting foes into tiny pieces in slow motion, slicing Metal Gear Ray in half and running down skyscrapers in the freaking tutorial. It's brilliant, and £2.95 delivered is a steal courtesy of The Game Collection. Thanks and credit to jack831 @ HUKD!
Microsoft have launched 2015's first deals of the week on Xbox One and Xbox 360. It's not exactly a knockout, but for once the hottest bargains are on Xbox One. Styx: The Master Of Shadows is an excellent pure stealth game despite some rough edges and worth £9.60 for genre fans, while Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood is very cheap at £3.96 if you didn't get it as a Games With Gold freebie.
On Xbox 360, meanwhile, GTA IV and its DLC are all heavily discounted, as is GTA V at £16.49. Get all the links below.Click here to read more...
You can jump into Batman: Arkham Origins for just £6.52 on PS3 and Xbox 360 if you swing by the GameSeek store at Rakuten.
While we didn't feel it was quite up to the standards of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, Origins certainly isn't a bad game and its story is highly enjoyable. For the price, it's certainly worth a go if you overlooked it previously.
Saints Row: The Third is a cracking little game. Perhaps not quite as brilliant as Saints Row IV, but still well worth a look if you fancy some superb sandbox insanity for just a couple of quid. Cheers biboboy!
Good news everyone! 2014 may be gone, but Microsoft's Countdown To 2015 sale has been extended until January 6th, meaning that there's still time to snag some Xbox One deals and Xbox 360 bargains.
That means you can still get the Telltale Games Collection for £35.00, Tales From The Borderlands Episode 1 for £2.00, Rock Band Blitz for £3.69 and more. See below for the full list of deals, courtesy of Major Nelson.Click here to read more...
Bioshock Infnite is now impossible to ignore for £6.85. and to think we reularly spend over £30 on games on release, only for them to fall to this price. Maybe I should work on 'the pile' a bit before picking up the likes of Witcher III and Batman. Yeah, like that's going to happen.
With one of the most talked about stories in years, Bioshock Infinite deserves a place in any gamer's collection. The roller coaster-like rails to move around the sky-high city are fantastic fun to use as you and Elizabeth try to escape the mad clutches of Comstock and the Songbird. Elizabeth herself is a great character as her powers to pull items through dimensional tears, lockpicking and looting all come in handy. Fans of Rapture may want to check out the Burial at Sea DLC too.
Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII.
Fantastic as a standalone piece and as a companion to AC3, Liberation is dirt cheap on Xbox LIVE right now and, in Aveline, has one of the series' finest protagonists too. Cheers BuzzDuraband!
Even though we've been getting all excited about the new-gen consoles, it's worth remembering that the last-gen rigs still have an enorous audience. If you've been shopping for Xbox 360 and PS3 this Christmas, check out LEGO batman 3 for just £18 at GAME.
The new-gen versions are available for £22, which is a bit of a steal right now. Cheers rizwanchill!
There are a few free Christmas avatar items to be had on Xbox LIVE to help your digital self get that festive feeling.
Seriously, deck your avatar out with that hat, and then hit up some DJ Hero to have your digital self play the biggest NYE party of your wildest dreams. No one will judge you. Much. Thanks to corbilla and Bev1505!
