This week’s game deals: Chinese New Year deals
Witness the Wildlands with this week's best game deals in Australia.
Every week, finder searches for the best video game deals and discounts in Australia. This week PC players can celebrate the Chinese New Year with Green Man Gaming, Xbox owners can trial some Wildlands for free and PlayStation players can score a ticket to 80s Tokyo for cheap with Yakuza 0.
It's also worth a reminder that ozgameshop's January sale (with discounts of up to 90%) is still running.
Chinese New Year discounts
In celebration of Chinese New Year, Green Man Gaming is running a sale with discounts of up to 80%. There are over 11 pages of deals at GMG, but probably most tempting is the collection of Rockstar bargains. This includes deals on GTAV and its DLC, the entire Max Payne series and related 2K games like Mafia III.
Check out GMG's Chinese New Year deals here.
This is the week's best deal on Xbox One.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Starting this Friday (3 February) and ending Monday (6 February), Tom Clancy fans can take the upcoming Ghost Recon: Wildlands for a test run. Set in Bolivia, Wildlands casts the player as one of four Ghost Recon Operatives on the hunt for the ruthless Santa Blanca Cartel.
This comes soon after the news that Ubisoft and Amazon had teamed up to create a tie-in movie for Wildlands' titled War Within the Cartel.
Punters can sign up for the beta here.
The week's best discounts on PS4.
The prequel to the long-running Yakuza series. Yakuza 0 puts players in the slick, black loafers of series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu during his formative years as Yakuza muscle. As the young Kiryu's story unfolds, players will also get to play chapters as a young Goro "Mad Dog" Majima, a fan favourite.
Big W is currently selling Yakuza 0 at just $59. A solid price for such a recent release.
The spiritual successor to the True Crime series (PS2, Xbox, GC), Sleeping Dogs is United Front's take on the Hong Kong crime scene. Like True Crime, Sleeping Dogs follows an undercover cop deeply embedded in a shady criminal organisation. Decisions the player makes inside and outside missions influence whether the character becomes crooked or plays it by the book.
The PlayStation Store is currently offering Sleeping Dogs for $7.55.
After indie game poster child Braid blew people away back in 2008, many awaited Jonathon Blow's next game with bated breath. Last year, we got that follow-up with the mind-bending puzzler The Witness.
By all accounts, The Witness is a game that is best experienced with no prior knowledge of the game and its themes.
While it was a little pricey at release, The Witness is currently 67% off at the PlayStation Store. You can pick it up now for just $17.95.
