It is still not Black Friday, quite, but Amazon has rolled out big discounts to games and hardware anyway. The company has announced a raft of deals will be going live this evening from 8pm UK time, including significant price cuts on console bundles and very new game releases.
The eyebrow-raising entries are Dishonored 2 and Watch Dogs 2, which are both being cut down to £32.99 – the latter barely a week after launch. Watch Dogs 2’s launch sales fell far, far short of its predecessor, prompting Ubisoft to issue a statement saying it expected “both week-two and week-three sales to be above traditional sales patterns”. Cutting the price seems a good way to make that happen. Battlefield 1, FIFA 17 and Call of Duty Infinite Warfare have received the same discount.
Elsewhere a 500GB PS4 bundle with Uncharted 4 and FIFA 17 is now £199.99 – the cheapest Xbox One S pack is £229.99, with a controller and your choice of FIFA or Minecraft. Destiny: The Collection, which includes the base game and all expansions, has been reduced to £19.99, which is the cheapest we’ve seen it for. Here’s the full list:
