Console bundle sale at Big W
Microsoft really wants you to buy an Xbox One and if you haven’t purchased one yet, this may be the best time to do so. The post E3 games line-up for the Xbox One has many early adopters excited for the future, and those who haven’t purchased the console have become a bit more interested.
Big W is currently selling an Xbox One 500GB Console Bundle for $299.00. The bundle includes Minecraft, Lego Movie The Game (via download token) and Name Your Game (via download token.)
Halo 5: Guardians
Halo is one the biggest franchises on the Xbox One. It completely changed the way shooters were played on console. With the departure of franchise originators, Bungie, 343 industries took the reins and have been developing Halo games for several years.
Halo 5 is the first canonical release on the Xbox One console and features a Spartan soldier named Locke, who is hunting a rogue Master Chief.
Halo 5: Guardians also has the classic Halo multiplayer with a few new additions and tweaks.
Big W is currently selling Halo 5: Guardians in store for $39.00, which is a saving of $57.95.
If you simply can't accept anything less than a SteelBook case, ozgameshop is selling the Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians for just $53.99.
After Assassins Creed, you may have grown tired with stabbing people in the neck in elaborate ways. I get that. So why not try stabbing people in the neck while in first person in a steampunk inspired world?
If this sounds right up your disturbed alley then Dishonoured is the perfect game for you. The game came out in 2012 but the re-release, Dishonoured Definitive Edition, has come out on current generation consoles.
EB games is going through its perpetual sale season and is currently selling the Definitive Edition for $19.98. That is 50% cheaper than the represented retail price.
Console bundle sale at JB
Sony’s PlayStation 4 has been dominating the “console wars” this generation. Exclusives such as the Lovecraft inspired BloodBorne and the action packed Uncharted 4 have made the console a must-have amongst many gamers.
If you haven’t had the chance to pick up a PS4, JB Hi-Fi has a special for you. You don’t even have to leave your house and talk to pesky humans.
JB Hi-Fi’s online store is currently selling the PlayStation 4 500GB console for $375 plus $9.95 delivery.
Sick of Overwatch? That shouldn't be possible, but if you're in the mood for a similar, highly colourful shooter to expand your gaming collection, consider Battleborn.
Battleborn is another colourful hero based shooter full of stylised characters and humour akin to Borderlands, another Gearbox game. Brown and grey are so last generation. This generation is all about vibrant colours.
Ozgameshop is currently selling Battleborn for $46.19, down from $65.99.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection
With the release of Uncharted 4, now is the perfect time to go back and experience the story of Nathan Drake on brand new hardware. All you need now is a brown fedora.
The Uncharted games have you travelling across the globe, shooting bad guys from behind chest-high walls while yelling out clever quips that no one can hear over the gunfire.
EB games is currently selling the special edition Uncharted: The Nation Drake Collection (which includes a steelbook case, artbook and stickers) for $57.48, down from $114.95.
Alternatively, you can pick up the standard edition at ozgameshop for $50.99.
Dragon Age: Inquisition
Do you have between 150 and 200 hours’ worth of free time and a passion for all things fantasy? Then you should play Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Dragon Age: Inquisition is currently $14.99 on Origin, which is a saving of 50%.
You can also pick up the Xbox One version for the low price of $24.29 over at ozgameshop.
Steam summer picnic sale
The PC master race has so many reasons to be smug. Better graphics, free mods, Gabe Newell, cheaper games and of course, Steam Sales.
Nothing empties a gamer's bank account quite like a good old fashioned Steam sale. Who doesn’t like buying games they will never play for under $10.00? Just make sure you give your bank card to a trusted friend. Remember, you still need to pay rent.
With discounts such as 50 – 85% off The Witcher franchise, and 40% off Rainbow Six Siege, it’s not wonder these sales are as loved as they are feared.
Sonic Humble Bundle
Running to the right defined a console generation. Running faster to the right faster than the competition is what made Sonic stand out.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sonic The Hedgehog, Sega has released a Humble Bundle with most of the good Sonic games alongside some of the lesser quality later-era Sonic titles.
Depending on the price you pay, there's up to $167.00 worth of value in this bundle, but you can pick up just part of it with your own choice of the price you'd like to pay.
Nintendo Wii U
Star Fox Zero
Star Fox Zero is the latest game in the series that's had many fans doing barrel rolls in anticipation for its release.
The sequel features all of the members of Team Star Fox. You’ve got Fox McCloud, Falco Lombardi, Peppy Hare and don’t worry, Slippy’s here as well. Your mission is to travel the galaxy, engage in fast-paced dogfights and take down the legendary Andross. He can sure be a pain in the neck.
Ozgameshop is currently selling Star Fox Zero for $44.79 which is a saving of $11.20.
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
While we wait to get our hands on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, let Nintendo take you back to the past without the need of a Flux capacitor.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess pulled a DC move and made a famous, light-hearted and hopeful series into something with a darker tone. It seems that gritty kids really like wolves and Animorphs.
EB games is currently selling The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD Amiibo Bundle for $68.00, which is a saving of $31.77.
