This week’s best gaming deals: 4K OLED TVs, PS4 Pro, NES Classic Mini, and more


It’s almost time for E3 2018 and while it definitely seems like most of the big announcements have already slipped out, a lot of us will likely have to start saving our pennies for later this year when the heavy hitters start coming out. With that in mind, here’s a big batch of this week’s best gaming deals for you to treat yourself with.

As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. Let’s get started.

UK & US Deals

GOG has gone and launched its Summer Sale for this year and, as you may have already expected, it consists of literally thousands of games with varying discounts. There are some absolute bargains and some real classics (by which I mean super old games) in there.

Just when you thought the NES Classic was over and done, Nintendo is back to make you want to buy another tiny console.

Gears of War 4 was one of the earliest example of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere campaign, letting users buy one digital copy of a first-party Xbox One game and gain access to the Windows 10 PC edition as well. As such, picking up this discounted digital copy of Gears 4 for £16.74 / $19.99 will get you the prettier PC version as well.

One of the most divisive Metal Gear Solid games around – Peace Walker – is now backwards compatible on Xbox One. If you’ve ever been curious about this (in my opinion, harshly under rated) MGS title, you can grab a copy for £3.74 / $4.99 right now.

Whether or not you need to re-up on your current Xbox Live Gold membership, it’s hard to pass up a six-month gold membership for the price of a three-month one. Better still, ponying up £15 for the half-year membership will also get you a month of Xbox Game Pass.

The recently announced Pokéball Plus, which is being released to tie in with Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee later this year, is now up for pre-order costing £45 at the moment. Knowing how recent Nintendo hardware releases have gone over the past two years and the stock issues that resulted from them, if you know you’re going to want one of these, you may just want to pre-order while you can.
