Can I get a better deal somewhere else on those 3 things?


Don't think so, but there are other deals out there.

You can currently get a PS4 Slim with Fifa 17 from Amazon for £199.99 (that's a daily deal) and then buy whatever else you want separately.

Also not sure where you got that deal from, but you can get a PS4 Slim with Wipeout or Horizon Zero Dawn or Ratchet and Clank for £199.85, you could then buy a £20 topup card from CDKeys using a 5% Facebook code to get The Last Guardian for £18.04 (its currently £19.99 on PSN). You'd be better off however spending a little more as you can get a £35 card for £30.30 from CDKeys, you'd then have £15 to spend on something else (alternatively you could buy a £50 card for £43.70 and have enough to buy both Last Guardian and a 12 Months PS+ sub).

Yeah I was looking at the Shopto deal, and then found TLG for £20 on eBay (would rather have is physically). Bought another PS+ sub in the week so don't need that. Will probably bite at this.

Forza Horizon 3 is £25 in the latest Xbox Live sale, and the expansion pass is under £15.

So under £40* for all the major content (i.e. not including the car packs). The Blizzard Mountain and Hot Wheels expansions are usually £16 each.

(* £36, if you buy the credit via CDKeys with the 5% off thing.)

Still available today and tomorrow

Price seems to have been reduced even more and ends at midnight, but you can get 3 classic mega drive games for just 99p or 20! for £2.70. The sega virtual game room and emulation is really good with controller pad support and a nice CRT filter. All the streets of rage games as well but no sonic. https://www.bundlestars.com/en/promotio ... x-bundle-2

I think normally these are about 4 or 5 quid each so it's not bad at all. It's a nicer experience than emulators and goes in your steam library imo

Ubi doing an E3 sale. If you have 100 Ubi Points spare, you can redeem for a 20% discount code, which means you can get Watchdogs 2 Gold (includes season pass) on PS4 for as little as £15.40. There are other titles included too.

But...

You need to spend £20 to avoid delivery charge (£9). Best to click on the link for more info, as you can buy some dlc to get it to £20.04. Or you could do what I did and add two games (20% discount stacks). I got Watchdogs 2 Gold and Steep for £27.39 delivered.

Watchdogs 2 Gold and Steep arrived today. 3 days from despatch on Monday in Germany to my house. Not too shabby.
There's still 3days and 22 hours to take advantage.

Thank you for this. I followed the instructions last nigh and rare replay is already in my account :toot:

I don't have a Xbox one to play it on, but I'm hoping one day it'll come to pc and I'll be able to play it then.

Fair point! I have no intention of getting an xbone for the forseable future but I tend to end up with each console about 7 years latter and I love Rare games so I've done it too, all I did is log into Mixer using my Microsoft/Xbox account and am watching the daily briefing. Should get credited with the games that way and it would be awesome if they came to Windows store!

Also I've got to admit the Mixer stream quality, details and colour especially is really impressive..

Edit: Just checking out my old Xbox account, Castle Crashers and Super Meat Boy are backwards compatible so I can keep playing those, that's pretty neat. Bought them in 2010. Nintendo would never do that.

What exactly do you need to do? Just sign up for Mixer.com with your Microsoft account and then watch the stream on https://mixer.com/Xbox ?
Can you do it anytime (ie now?) Or was it only during a few specific times and now it's too late?

It was the specific view times when they were streaming, Daily, originally it was just for the E3 main presentation.

Those ended at midnight so you had time when you posted that, maybe if you view the archive videos now it might work. I just left it open for an hour until I get fed up with it slowing down my computer. It can take up to a week for them to email you confirmation.

When I posted that I had the stream open for a little while, but it kept hanging/freezing on the video and forced me to refresh the page a few times. The chat stream was still going, but the video just froze up. I left it open for around 45 minutes or so, so I guess I'll wait and see if I get anything.

Not sure I've got anything, my Xbox order history shows nothing recent anyway.
Thinking about it I wouldn't be surprised if my ad blocker buggered it up. Or the issues with the stream freezing up all the time meant I didn't watch long enough.

Looks like it worked after all.
The Final Station and No time to Explain have appeared in the My Games section on my Xbox One, and all my physical Rare Replay installations appear to be converting to digital version installs.
