If you're looking to warm up this winter, these hot deals will keep you and your wallet nice and toasty.

Each week, finder searches for the best game deals in Australia. This week, Xbox One owners are in for time warps and prison breaks, PS4 owners can get their hack on, and PC gamers continue to bake in the Steaminess of summer.

Cosy up to some hot deals

Target's big toy sale this week has plenty of great deals, but you can do even better if you take a detour through Target's eBay store first. By using the code 'COZZIE' at checkout, you can get 10% off the already steeply-discounted prices in the retailer's latest catalogue. You've got Prey for $30, Watch Dogs 2 for $30, and Forza Horizon 3 for $50, all of which are well worth jumping on. Just remember to click and collect to avoid Target's harsh $9.00 delivery fee.

Title Price (click and collect) Buy it on
Prey $30.60 PS4 Xbox One
Ghost Recon: Wildlands $30.60 PS4 Xbox One
Watch Dogs 2 $30.60 PS4 Xbox One
Battlefield 1 $35.10 PS4 Xbox One
Halo Wars 2 $35.10 Xbox One
Forza Horizon 3 $49.50 Xbox One
ARMS $57.60 Nintendo Switch


The Midas touch

How would you like to stage a prison break for $7? Or bend time itself to save an entire town for less than the price of a lunch-time wrap? Or crash a tuk-tuk through a night market in Hong Kong for a mere tenner? If you're an Xbox Live Gold member, you can do all this and more thanks to this week's Ultimate Xbox Sale at Microsoft Store. Don't fret if you don't have Xbox Live Gold, though, as there are still plenty of savings to be had for non-Gold members too. Check out our top picks below:

Chow down on a Sinner's Sandwich

Have you been seeing letters spelled out in your morning coffee? Have you been whistling jaunty tunes and have no idea why? Has the prospect of a turkey, jam, and cereal sandwich got your stomach rumbling? There's only one cure for your woes: Deadly Premonition, the Twin-Peaks-inspired horror game that's guaranteed to be one of the most absurd experiences you'll ever play.

Close encounters of the digital kind

Those lucky Elite Dangerous players have been experiencing what we've all dreamed of at least once: encountering alien life for the first time. Hidden amongst the stars of Elite Dangerous' massive universe, never-before-seen creatures are beginning to emerge, and you can be amongst the first to see them face-to-face by picking up the just-released PS4 version of Elite Dangerous: Legendary Edition at British retailer Base for $47.71 delivered this week. The Legendary Edition comes with both the base Elite Dangerous game and its Horizons DLC, along with 1000 Frontier points to spend on extra content at the in-game store.

Pocket Monsters of a different kind

Can't wait till November for Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon? Maybe take a look at the other monster-hunting adventure series that's taking Japan by storm: Yo-Kai Watch. Beat the Bomb is clearing out copies of the 3DS game for $27.90 delivered this week. With dozens of hours of portable creature-collecting packed into the cartridge, it's sure to keep you from thinking about Pokemon for a few weeks at least.

Gravity Girl

The Gamesmen's winter catalogue is out, and while there isn't a whole lot to go ga-ga over, you can pick yourself up a copy of Gravity Rush 2 on PS4 for $56.90 delivered, which isn't too shabby. Kat's physics-defying adventure impressed us with its gorgeous cel-shaded art style and slick movement options, which you can read more about in our Gravity Rush 2 review.


Bullet Time

The only thing better than watching a slick Hong Kong action movie is playing one, and no game captures the thrill of Hong Kong cinema more authentically than Sleeping Dogs. Between the gravity-defying martial arts, the high-speed car chases, and the conflicting loyalties of being an undercover cop, Sleeping Dogs is up there with the likes of Infernal Affairs and Hard Boiled. And if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can snap up the Definitive Edition of the game for just $8 on PlayStation Store this week. What are you waiting for?

Sale runs until 6 July

Title Platform Discounted price (PS+)
Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition PS4 $7.99
Metro Redux Bundle PS4 $11.99
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt PS4 $28.77
Yooka-Laylee PS4 $33.57
