There's no shortage of bargains for players of all stripes this week.

Each week, finder searches for the best game deals in Australia. This week, PlayStation 4 owners can unleash their brick-building skills, Xbox One players can take a trip to the borderlands and all console gamers are spoiled for choice with two different trips to outer space.

Crashing the party | Ozgameshop

Who'd have thought a fuzzy 20-year-old bandicoot would resonate so strongly with gamers in 2017? I certainly never expected the wumpa-munching Crash Bandicoot to top the sales charts so long after his baditude hey days of the late 90s. And yet here we are, living in a world where a trio of remastered 3D platformers can hold up better than we thought possible. As wild as it is, take comfort in the fact that you can relive Crash's adventures with Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy for just $49 at Ozgameshop this week. A fully Coco price, that.

Title Platform Discounted price
Fossil Fighters Frontiers 3DS $17.48 delivered
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare PS4/Xbox One $23.98 delivered
Torment Tides of Numenera Day One Edition PS4/Xbox One/PC $26.48 delivered
LEGO City Undercover Xbox One $38.98 delivered
Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy PS4 $48.98 delivered

A prayer for the pre-owned games | EB Games

If you have no qualms buying used games, EB Games has a few tempting deals this week, most notable of which is the stellar sci-fi shooter Prey for just $29 on PS4 and Xbox One. We applauded Prey's dense, open-world and non-linear approach to puzzle solving in our review, and for less than $30, we can't recommend it enough.

Title Platform Discounted price
Warhammer The End Times: Vermintide PS4/Xbox One $12.00
Skylanders Trap Team (game and portal) PS4/Xbox One $14.00
The Elder Scrolls Online - Tamriel Unlimited PS4/Xbox One $14.00
One Piece: Burning Blood PS4/Xbox One $24.00
Prey PS4/Xbox One $29.00

Round 2, fight!| JB Hi-Fi

We've seen these prices before, but just in case you missed them, JB Hi-Fi's current batch of $39 games holds some serious value for money. From the enormous drug-dominated open world of Ghost Recon Wildlands to the deep turn-based strategy of XCOM 2, there's plenty here to keep you entertained.

Title Platform Discounted price
Ghost Recon Wildlands PS4/Xbox One $39.00
For Honor PS4/Xbox One $39.00
XCOM 2 PS4/Xbox One $39.00
Yooka-Laylee PS4/Xbox One $39.00

Paint it Black | Big W

The smoky streets of Mafia III's New Bordeaux are a pleasure to cruise through, even if you have to endure the degrading insults and rampant prejudices that the 1960s city unleashes upon our poor protagonist Lincoln Clay. Still, it's not like he takes it lying down. Heisting banks, assassinating drug dealers and setting fire to illegal fight rings are just some of the ways that Clay gets his own back on a society that treats him like gutter trash. If you want to help ol' Clay out with his quest for vengeance, pop on over to Big W this week where you can grab Mafia III for a measly $29 on PS4 and Xbox One.


Space 2.0 | Play-Asia

Sure, Mass Effect: Andromeda didn't quite live up to its pedigree when we reviewed it earlier this year, but it's still a solid space-faring RPG with a rich galaxy full of stuff to do. Plus, BioWare has released a whopping 10 patches for the game since its launch, shoring up many of the shoddy animations and quests bugs that frustrated us back in March. And with Play-Asia selling the PS4 version of the game for a historical low of $41.56 delivered this week, now's the time to hop on board the Tempest if you've been holding out. Be quick, though, as this price will only last until midday Tuesday.

Brick by brick | Base

Who doesn't love LEGO? Only heartless monsters, that's who (and if that's you, I wholeheartedly apologise for your incapacity to experience joy). Honestly, though, there's no questioning the universal appeal of LEGO and consequently, the massive popularity of its digital successor Minecraft.

It might have taken a while, but that lineage has come full circle with LEGO Worlds, the creation-focused sandbox game that lets you build your wildest LEGO creations without the hefty price tag of the physical bricks attached. As a budding Master Builder myself, I can easily recommend LEGO Worlds for virtual architects of all ages, especially at the primo price of $27 delivered from British retailer Base this week. What are you waiting for? Get building!

Title Platform Discounted price
Tales from the Borderlands Xbox One $15.10 delivered
LEGO Worlds PS4 $27.04 delivered
Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition PS4/Xbox One $30.49 delivered
Yakuza Kiwami Steelbook Edition (pre-order for 29 August) PS4 $35.48 delivered

Change your perspective | PlayStation Store

Stop whatever you're doing right now and answer me this: have you played FEZ? If your answer is anything but a resounding "Of course!", get your butt over to the PlayStation Store's Totally Digital Sale and rectify it this instance. It doesn't matter whether you own a PS4, PS3 or PS Vita, 'cause the brain-bending puzzle game is available for a ridiculously low $2.95 on all three platforms. Heck, for the phenomenal chiptune soundtrack alone, $3 is an absolute bargain.

Title Platform Discounted price
FEZ PS4/PS3/Vita $2.95
Virginia PS4 $5.95
Day of the Tentacle Remastered PS4/Vita $7.55
Enter the Gungeon PS4 $8.95
Oxenfree PS4 $8.95
Overcooked PS4 $11.95
Trine Trilogy PS4 $11.95
The Witness PS4 $20.95
The Jackbox Party Trilogy PS4 $30.95

ICYMI | PlayStation Store Winter Sale

In case you missed it last week, Sony upgraded its PlayStation Store Winter Sale with a bunch of new discounts, including Gravity Rush 2, Wipeout Omega Collection and HITMAN. Each game is going for the lowest price it's ever been, so you'll want to snap 'em up fast before the sale wraps up on 17 August.
