A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.
Any week that gives me an excuse to talk about adventure games is a good one in my book, but this particular week has not only delivered that quite nicely, but given us a big stack of deals on top, just for kicks. We’ve got everything from Micro SD cards to HTV Vive to Barbie to go through today, so let’s take a look.
As usual, we’ve got deals that’ll work in the UK, deals that’ll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places.
UK & US Deals

There’s a big batch of EA titles with big discounts on Xbox this week, available to Xbox Live Gold members. Most notably, you can grab Titanfall 2 and Skate 3 together and still have enough cash left over for a Happy Meal.
The Humble Store is currently offering up to 75 per cent off a bunch of Ubisoft titles, featuring everything from Ghost Recon Wildlands with 55 per cent off, to For Honor with 67 per cent off, but no one will mind if all you want to pick up is Steep while it’s half price.
This month, signing up for a Humble Monthly subscription will get you instant access to a copy of Dark Souls 3 as well as the Ashes of Ariandel DLC pack, along with a stack of other games once the month finishes out, all of which will cost you $12 / £10.
One of the two best remakes of the past few years, Yakuza Kiwami, is down to £11.99 as a digital title over on the PlayStation Network. That’s a whole lot of game and a whole lot of Majima available for not much cash.
Add 128GB of storage to your Nintendo Switch with this Micro SD card, currently discounted to £27.99 over at Amazon UK. Or, I don’t know, use it in a camera or something, they probably still use Micro SD.
Sony’s most recent ‘play it with your phone’ type game, Hidden Agenda, is a police mystery thriller from the creators of Until Dawn and it can be yours in its boxed form for under £6 this week, which is a bit good, isn’t it?
This set of Sennheiser HD 4.40 Bluetooth wireless headphones is down £40 to £89.99 this week, over at Argos, if you suddenly develop a need to shut yourself off from the world and listen to the Hamilton soundtrack again. We’ve all been there.
It’s not a massive discount but it still counts – Amazon is selling 12-month memberships to EA Access for £17.99 right now, rather than the usual £19.99. Memberships stack, so you can get a headstart on next year if you’re already signed up.
This 31.5-inch AOC monitor is a bit of a beast, features FreeSync, a max resolution of 2560×1440 and is reduced by £90 this week. That brings the price down to £179.99 while the stock remains there.
Alternatively, you could go for this Acer gaming monitor. It’s a smaller 24.5-inch model but it features a 240Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time and a very pointy design. This one is down £180 to £369.97 this week.
This Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia Limited Edition has made an appearance or two in these deals roundups before, and the thing isn’t even officially released yet. Nonetheless, the pre-order price of this one has been reduced to £55.12 for a short time, if you fancy it.
Whether you want to cosplay in the most accurate way possible or you just like weird looking headsets, Razer is offering up this D.Va edition of the Meka gaming headset. One of these will cost you £79.99.
This deal proved a popular one on the Jelly Deals Twitter account when it emerged during the week so here you go – this Heat Changing Stained Glass Legend of Zelda mug is down to £6.99 at Merchoid. Go nuts.
ShopTo is selling off DualShock 4 controllers in Black, Blue and Red at a discount this week, through its official eBay outlet. You can pick up any of those models for £37.85 while stock lasts.
If you missed out on picking up a Fire Emblem Warriors Limited Edition for Nintendo Switch when it launched last year, fret not – it can be yours for the reduced price of £37.99. If that’s your thing, at least.
Amazon US has got a sale going on featuring a variety of EA published PC titles. You can pick up some of the company’s most recent releases dirt cheap, but if you only buy one thing, you absolutely should get that $5 copy of Titanfall 2.
You may have seen by now that there’s a Tomb Raider Barbie doll on the way. If you’d like to own it, you can get a pre-order in right now from the official Mattel website. That tiny pick-axe is adorable.
If for some reason you’ve so far resisted picking up a copy of Street Fighter 5 on PS4, you can now grab a copy of the Arcade Edition for $29.99. This is the most complete version of the game so far, with extra characters and major improvements from the launch version.
Nintendo has seemingly invested pretty heavily in encyclopedias this year, as in addition to the Zelda encyclopedia that’s up for pre-order, you can now pre-order a Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia for $23.99 right now.
If you want to get your VR on in a big way, you can save some cash by getting this bundle of an HTC Vive with the Vive Racket Set and Tracker from the Microsoft Store, where the whole lot will cost you $598 for the time being.
With that, we’re done for another week. Keep in mind that deals, prices and availability can change at the drop of a hat, so apologies if you miss out on something you wanted. I’ll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook.
