These are the week's best PlayStation 4 deals.
PlayStation 4 500GB Slim Console
There is no better time to begin your adventure into the latest generation of gaming than three years after its official release. You've got a huge library of top-shelf games and can pay a fraction of the price the console was launched at.
Now that Sony know that it can make the PS4 at a slimmer, cheaper cost, it has released the PS4 Slim. The latest model isn’t too different compared to the previous version, but a slimmer design allows for more shelf space and can be fit into smaller crevices. You know, the primary concern when purchasing a plastic box of gaming experiences.
Sony is currently selling the PlayStation 500GB Slim Console for $299, which is a saving of $140.95.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Outer space is the final frontier, especially for creative people. Once you decide that your franchise has run out of steam, your last option is to head to space. Mario did this with great success. Others, not so much.
On a completely unrelated note, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare takes the tried and true gameplay established by previous Call of Duty games and blasts them into the vast expanse. You even get a cool robot friend with a quirky personality, which is seems to a part of the space adventure criteria.
Big W is currently selling Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for $54.00, which is a saving of $31.00.
These are the week's best Xbox One deals in Australia.
The Battlefield series offers players a bombastic shooter where explosions and chaos are constant, and only the most versatile and adaptive players will succeed on the battlefield.
Battlefield 1 continues the chaotic style of gameplay that gamers have come to love, but transports players back to the Great War. Instead of a focus on technologically advanced, high-powered weaponry, players will be equipped with era-accurate weaponry and be exposed to the brutality of WW1.
Big W is currently selling Battlefield One for $52.00, which is a saving of $33.00.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Unless you've been in a coma or staring at a brick wall for the past five years, then you must have heard of Skyrim.
One of the biggest games of its generation and in gaming history, Skyrim allowed players to explore a large world full of colourful characters, quests and dragons. If you didn't have the chance to explore the world of Skyrim upon its original release, a remastered version which includes all of the DLC has been released on the latest consoles.
Amazon is currently selling The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for $53.75, which is a saving of $26.88.
Here are the week's best PC deals in Australia.
Developed by Crytek and published by EA, the Crysis series is known as a graphical power house. If you wanted to push your PC to its absolute limits, you would play Crysis.
"What is Crysis?” I hear you ask from behind your computer screen. It is a game where you play as a soldier that wears a technologically advanced suit that allows the player to turn invisible, gain ridiculous amounts of strength and is impervious to bullets. It is pretty much a power fantasy for 14-year-olds and people suffering a midlife crisis.
Origin is currently selling Crysis 3 for $6.71, which is a saving of $20.16.
Sometimes it's the simplest ideas that really take off. One day, someone sought to answer the question “How great would a football game be, but instead of playing as people, you played as cars?" The answer was "really great" and thus Rocket League was born.
Rocket League is a high-octane, adrenaline pumping experience that replaces people who have two legs, two arms, and multi-million-dollar contract, with four wheels, a loud engine, and nitrous oxide. An extremely pure and fun experience, Rocket League is a great game that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but requires a mixture of skill, luck, and determination.
Amazon is currently selling a digital copy of Rocket League for $16.11, which is a saving of $10.75.
These are the week's best deals on Nintendo.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Bundle
The Legend of Zelda is one of the most iconic and beloved franchises on the Nintendo platform, and of all time. The series has featured on many different consoles over the decades, and fans still crave more.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess exposed players to a darker story than they have experienced before. The standard dungeon-exploring formula is still present, but the protagonist, Link, now has the ability to transform into a wolf. This transformation brings forth new ability’s and situations never before seen in the Zelda franchise.
EB Games is currently selling The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD amiibo Bundle for $47.00, which is a saving of $52.77.
Minecraft: Wii U Edition
Minecraft is one of the most popular, most marketable, most iconic games to ever exist.
The simple concept of allowing players to gather materials in order to build whatever their heart desires has grown into a behemoth of a game that has broken out of the gaming sphere and into the mainstream.
Amazon is currently selling Minecraft: Wii U Edition for $26,87, which is a saving of $13.44.
