Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is down to its cheapest price yet on Xbox 360. £11.86 is £5-£10 cheaper than the competition and console gamers find themselves in unfamiliar territory again as this price is cheaper than the PC version.
The upcoming Handsome Collection on PS4/XO will include a next-gen version of the Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2, but most pre-orders are around the £40 mark, which is all sorts of grim for old rope with a smidge of polish. Whereas picking up this version will save you loads, especially if you've already played the hell out of Borderlands 2.
Thanks to preparationiskey.
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 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.
It's official. Following yesterday's rumours, Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Live Games With Gold will be shifting gears and upping its game, amongst other overused clichés.
BioShock Infinite and Tomb Raider will both be free on Xbox 360 throughout March for Xbox Live Gold Members. Lara will take the first shift until March 15th, at which point Booker takes over for the rest of the month.
Meanwhile, on Xbox One, Rayman Legends will be free to download all March long, while local multiplayer darling #IDARB will remain free.
It's a great haul with more to come, as Microsoft has also announced that they'll be doubling the number of games available on the service. "Next month, you can look forward to four free games on Xbox 360, and two free games on Xbox One," apparently. It looks like Phil Spencer is ready to deliver on his promises of beefing up the service, so here's hoping that the quality matches the quantity.
According to a new rumour-slash-leak, next month's free Games With Gold have been revealed for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
If true, BioShock Infinite and Tomb Raider will both be free on Xbox 360 throughout March for Xbox Live Gold Members. Lara will take the first shift until March 15th, at which point Booker takes over for the rest of the month.
Meanwhile, on Xbox One, Rayman Legends will be free to download all March long, while #IDARB will remain free.
No official confirmation yet, but expect it soon. According to a purported screengrab of Microsoft's internal ExpertZone site, we'll also get double the number of Xbox Live Games With Gold in April, which suggests that Microsoft are trying to up their game and compete with PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection. Here's hoping.
I liked Resident Evil 6. It may not be the horror game the series deserved, but it was a fun and varied action game that's an absolute hoot in co-op. Leon's section is superb, Chris' section is... okay, it's shite... but then Jake and Sherry get a fantastic chapter of their own and naturally Ada shows up. I really enjoyed it as far as it went, and for £2.95, I'd recommend it wholeheartedly. If only so you can actually play it before complaining about it some more.
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...
All is not lost for the Assassin's Creed brand. Ubisoft Sofia provided an excellent sequel to Black Flag and £17.99 is a very reasonable price.
Compared to Unity, this is a masterpiece 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. Check out my Sunday Seven which sings the game's praises compared to Unity.

[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!
Minecraft is probably the most important videogame of the decade. It proved that creation, imagination and community can fuel a game, accessible to anyone regardless of age and ability, and demonstrates that big ideas can turn into massive smash hits regardless of how humble its origins are.
Still haven't got involved? You can now buy Minecraft for only £7.95 on Xbox 360.

Need to get yourself prepared for Batman: Arkham Knight in a few months? Then maybe you'd like to pick up the excellent Batman: Arkham City first for just £3.95 on Xbox 360.
Rocksteady did it again with their follow-up to Asylum in this excellent open-world crime caper for our favourite caped crusader. There's still no Batmobile (it'll be in the new one though!) but the grapple gun and gliding techniques employed make navigating the huge prison island an empowering feat. And the combat? Still the best in the business. Thanks to Ninbox @ HUKD!
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.
Are you a fighting game connoisseur with a love of physical merchandise? Well here's an opportunity to get an utterly fantastic fighter in its mint collector's edition for less than £10.
You'll get the game in its limited edition packaging with 12 art prints and a soundtrack CD for £2 less than Amazon, and much less than anywhere else.
Alternatively you could pick up the Blazblue Continuum Shift Special Edition for the same price,
Tesco really don't like having the Darkness II in stock, as soon as they do they're practically giving it away for £3.25. Maybe it grows vicious tentacles at night and smashes through crates of Hudls.
The Darkness II is a fine example on how to improve on an average first game. We love the new comic-noir art style that perfectly complements this grim tale of a mob boss battling rival mobs and cults who want to steal his powers. The Darkness of the title enables Jacky to use two serpent-like arms that sprout from his shoulders to attack his enemies. Using these attacks in conjunction with guns provides the ultimate in quad-wielding bloodbaths.
