This week’s best game deals: You’re going to need a bigger wallet

Matt Sayer 18 April 2017 NEWS


What better cure for a chocolate hangover than a dose of cheap games?

Each week, finder searches for the best game deals in Australia. This week, the sales are bigger than our chocolate-filled bellies, with Xbox One owners in particular in for a treat.

Space Invaders for the modern age

If you're the kind of Call of Duty fan who digs the spectacle of the single-player campaign more than the intense multiplayer, Big W is clearing out copies of the space-bound Infinite Warfare for PC this week at just $19 a pop. The Call of Duty competitive scene on PC tends to be pretty small compared to console, so be warned if you plan on picking it up for online play.

Dishonored 2 is still in stock for $25, too, as well as a couple of other bargains we've listed below:

TitlePlatformDiscounted Price
Call of Duty: Infinite WarfarePC$19.00
DoomPS4/Xbox One$17.00
Fallout 4PS4/Xbox One$17.00

Xbox deals are served

You'll need to move fast to take advantage of the sweet sale currently running in the Xbox Store. Dozens of digital games are discounted by well over 50%, with an extra 10% off for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Most of the games are Xbox One titles, but there are a few decent discounts for Xbox 360 owners, too.
