A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a new deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. (It also has the best name.) We've invited the Jelly Deals team to share a weekly roundup of (mostly) gaming-related bargains with us, so we can pass their tips on to you. Full disclosure: if you make a purchase from one of these links, we will receive a small commission from the retailer. Hopefully you'll find it useful!
We're back for another week's worth of deals and offers from the world of gaming and technology. As always, we've been scouring the internet in order to find cut prices, special offers and limited time deals to bring to you. Keep in mind, though, that deals like these have a nasty habit of changing, expiring or selling out without notice. We do our best to make sure these deals are active when the article goes up, but depending on when you get around to clicking the link, there's a chance the deal could be gone. As usual, we'll be looking at what the UK has to offer deal-wise before heading over to the US. If you're reading this Stateside, feel free to skip ahead.
If you (somehow) weren't already aware, GreenManGaming is having a Summer Sale right now, which means some big discounts on PC download titles. GMG are rolling this sale out by themed 48-hour slots and you'll need to sign in to get the best prices. Its first 48 hours featured sci-fi themed games, the second was focused on fantasy games and by the time you read this, they will be onto its third slot - 'Fun With Friends'. This, as you might already expect, is focused on multiplayer games. We've picked out some of the highlights for this weekend below, but remember these prices will be ever so slightly higher if you're not signed in.

If you stick around, Monday will see its sale change over to the theme of 'Kick Ass', so feel free to guess at what games that will include.
Mirror's Edge Catalyst arrived to a fairly mixed reception when it released just last month, but there are plenty of people out there who have been waiting on a price drop before giving it a try. Well, guess what - just over a month on, we've seen the first big price drop for this one, which is available now for £20.99 as a PC download, or £29.97 on consoles.
Last year gave us Mortal Kombat X, technically the tenth in the Mortal Kombat series of games (give or take a few spin-offs) and the most recent arrival from NetherRealm studios, who then continued to add more characters and costumes as downloadable content. Mortal Kombat XL, besides having the most perfect name possible, is the original MKX game packed with all the downloadable content. ShopTo currently have this priced up at £19.85 on PS4, which is an absolute steal.
For some reason, its Xbox One copy is still a good £10 more expensive though. We had a look and found the cheapest Xbox One edition we could, over at Amazon for £24.70.
Mafia 3 may not arrive on shelves (both physical and digital) until October, but you can already pre-order the game on PC for what seems to be an absolute bargain. While the game is currently listed at £34.99 on Steam itself, heading over to CDKeys will get you a digital pre-order of the game for just £23.99. You would be forgiven for not wanting to pull the trigger on this deal without waiting to see more of the game, but hey, right now it's pretty cheap.
If you're one of the few Xbox One owners who doesn't already own a copy of Halo: Master Chief Collection, you're running out of excuses now that its online performance is fixed. Right now, you can pick up a code for a digital edition of the game for £5.49. That's just over £1 per game included in the package, by the way. Just saying.
If you're in the market for a 4K TV, you may want to check out this Bush 50 inch 4K LED TV at Argos. It's currently running at £70 off, down to £329.99 from its original £399.99. This thing might not have a lot of bells and whistles, but if you're considering a 4K TV on the cheaper side, it's worth a look. As always though, you'd be best to check reviews online before you buy.
Across the Atlantic, the best US deals from this week begin with Final Fantasy X and X-2. The HD Remaster of this pair of JRPGs is currently available at an all time low of $14.88 over at Walmart.
It may have taken just a little bit too long, but GameStop has finally discounted its stock of the Gentleman Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition of Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. This thing was originally $400 (!) and has been cut in half down to $199.99. This is most likely an attempt to clear through the remaining stock, and it's not exactly cheap, but if you were tempted at the previous high price point, it could be time to put some cash down on a remote control Claptrap.
With GeForce's brand new graphics cards hitting the market, it seems like a pretty good time to upgrade your rig or build an entirely new PC. The GeForce GTX 1070 is currently available over at NewEgg for $409.99 and you can get an extra $25 off that price by entering the code 'PP2016BTS' at checkout and paying via PayPal. That brings the overall cost down to $385, which is all the more affordable.
With the news of the cancellation of future Disney Infinity games and support, it was only a matter of time before the prices started to fall on the figures themselves. Luckily, these things are desirable just as little figures of some of your favourite characters, and Best Buy appears to be clearing through some of its old stock for cheap. They have a range of Disney Infinity characters available on their site with prices starting at $1.99 (at time of writing). Expect stock of these to disappear quick, though, so availability and prices may change.
That's all she wrote for another week of deals. Keep in mind that deals, prices and stock can change at any time, but we'll do our best to make sure we bring you them fresh and when they are active and available. As always, we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for more low prices, deals and offers over at Jelly Deals, or you can follow us over at Twitter or Facebook. See you next week!
