You may have already spotted this one during the week, but if you're a Metroid fan that also fancies owning a brand new 3DS XL, Nintendo has a deal for you. This limited edition Samus Edition of the New Nintendo 3DS XL is due for release next month and up for pre-order at the moment, while stock lasts.

At Humble this week, you can grab a bunch of digital comics from the Transformers and GI Joe series. These are the most recent runs of the books and can be yours for a price of your choosing. Also, if 'Transformers vs. GI Joe' was the argument, Transformers is the obvious answer. It just is.

Someone out there has come up with a product that will invalidate the heck out of your Nintendo Switch warranty while, potentially, making it look a lot nicer. Over at Amazon, you can grab some DIY sets to replace the casing of your Joy-Cons or Switch backplate, allowing you to add some more custom colours to your Switch's look. At your own risk, of course.

UK Deals

The cost of PlayStation Plus memberships is going up at the end of this month, so PlayStation is currently offering a tiny bit of a make-good in the form of 15 months of PS Plus for the price of 12. That's the current price of 12, by the way, so £39.99 for 15 months. Stock up while you can, since this offer is only good until the price increase. Memberships do stack on your account, too.

The insanely addictive and kind of fantastic Puyo Puyo Tetris on Nintendo Switch has reached its lowest price so far in the UK. TheGameCollection is selling some of its stock via its eBay outlet for £24.95. This edition is from overseas but features full English language settings and, thanks to the Switch's region-free loveliness, works perfectly anywhere.

Mass Effect Andromeda is back on offer. This has happened a lot recently, but if you fancy it, you can pick up a copy on Xbox One or PS4 for £21 this week.

It's an unknown brand, sure, but this EletriQ 28-inch monitor boasts FreeSync as well as full 4K resolution, all for just under £200, which is a whole lot of good stuff to pack into a moderately priced gaming monitor.

As previously mentioned, Ni No Kuni 2's release brings with it a rather massive collector's edition in the form of the 'King's Edition'. It's got a lofty RRP of £150, though, so if you've got your heart set on picking this up, you're going to want to head to Base and grab a pre-order for £134.95 while you still can.

Blade Runner is a movie with a truly baffling number of different editions, releases and cuts. The upcoming release of the film's 4K version adds one (hopefully final) one to the list. Right now, you can pre-order a beautifully put together Special Edition of the 4K cut of Blade Runner, which also comes with every other edition ever released, all on a set of Blu-ray discs. It's due out later this year.

The big set is also available at Amazon UK, though for a higher price at the time of writing. That price may very well come down if the site decides to price match Zavvi.

If you don't fancy getting every known edition of the movie, you can opt instead to pick up just 'The Final Cut' in its 4K form in a fancy steelbook edition as well.

Even though the show has been on television for a couple of years now and both seasons have been available on Blu-ray for months in the US, the UK has had to wait for boxed editions of Ash vs. Evil Dead. Until now, that is, since both seasons of the show can be pre-ordered on Blu-ray before their October release. Both box sets are currently cheapest over at Zavvi, where they'll cost you £24.99 each.

Both box sets are also available at Amazon UK, though right now they're priced up noticeably higher, at around £35 each. Worth checking, though, just in case of a price match.

US Deals

At Humble right now, you can pay a price of your choice and get a whole bunch of PlayStation digital titles in return. These are mostly PS3 downloads with some Vita and PS4 games thrown in for good measure, but it does mean you can save money on a copy of XCOM 2 for PS4. To be able to use these codes, you'll need a PlayStation account from one of these countries.

Look, this is at least the sixth time Prey has appeared in one of these articles because it's had a really nice price drop in some form or another. If you've been remotely interested in trying your luck at space survival, it can now be yours for $30.

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.
