UK & US Deals
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!
Time is seriously about to run out if you're yet to finish all of your Christmas shopping. These are now the last desperate days of scrambling for deals before they go out of stock and the hurried purchases of a final few items. Then, you can relax: crash out in front of Wallace and Gromit with a drink in one hand and chocolates in the other, admiring all bargains you took advantage of over the last few weeks. Ready to do it all again next year? No? I don't blame you.
Anyway, while we're on the cusp on last shipping dates there are still deals to be found across the tech and gaming realm. Perhaps, instead of picking up something for someone else, you might want to reward yourself with an early Christmas treat. Come take a look at what's on offer.

People have been waiting a very long time for Owlboy and the gorgeous pixel platformer finally saw a release in 2016. It's only been out a short while but you can already pick it up for £15.19/$19.99 over on the Humble Store. Not exactly the greatest discount in the world, but nonetheless still money off the hotly-anticipated indie.
Like Owlboy, there's been a decade long wait for Final Fantasy 15 too. If you feel like you've been missing out on all the arguments over who is 'Best Boy' (Ignis, clearly) and the oddly sentimental photos from Noctis and the gang's road trip you can now pick up a copy for £34.99 from Amazon. Already finished your journey? They're also offering a small discount on the game's Season Pass and have dropped it to £17.49 on both consoles.
- Final Fantasy 15 on PS4 for £34.99 from Amazon UK
- Final Fantasy 15 on Xbox One for £34.99 from Amazon UK
- Final Fantasy 15 Season Pass on PS4 for £17.49 from Amazon UK
- Final Fantasy 15 Season Pass on Xbox One for £17.49 from Amazon UK
What better way to dispense with some of that post-Christmas family gathering rage than by playing the latest Gears of War? For just £20.99 you can join the gruff and perpetually furious Outsiders fighting off a new threat to humanity.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition - the version of the game that includes both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered - has been seeing a new wave of reductions in the run up to Christmas. Simply Games now has it for the cheapest it's been so far: £41.85 on PS4 and £42.85 on Xbox One. Who knows why it's an extra pound on Microsoft's console?
If you're talking about games that had potential then the original Mirror's Edge is right up there. Then it decided to lock you in a single room for the final 'boss' fight and everything came crashing to the ground. Nevertheless, it had its fans, and a sequel that moved Faith's leaping and bounding to a more open world sounded like a very exciting prospect. You can now check it out for yourself for £20.99 on PS4 or Xbox One and £21.99 on PC.
With a recent update Hello Games has taken the first steps to address some of the problems players have had with their ambitious space exploration sim, No Man's Sky. It'll be interesting to see what the game becomes over the next year and for just £19.99 over at Smyths Toys it's a price that may tempt you to check it out.
The PSVR headset is still expected to be out of stock everywhere until the new year, but if you've been fortunate enough to get one already and are looking for more experiences to escape our cold, harsh reality then pop over to Amazon.

As we approach the half way point of the football season you've probably got a good idea of how your team is expected to perform this year. If things are going poorly then why not prove you could do a better job than that overpaid gum-chewing suit they call a manager in Football Manager 2017? The Limited Edition of the game is now available at Amazon for £18.
Dishonored 2 has been sneaking down in price over the last few weeks and it's now reached the point where you can get the game's Limited Edition for $39.99. This version also includes a copy of the original Dishonored - Definitive Edition to get you caught up on events or give you a reason to play through the excellent stealth series from the start again.
If you're still in full-on Star Wars hype mode after seeing Rogue One then the Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition might be awfully tempting at $29.99. It comes with the game's season pass, which includes the recently released Scarif map so you can play your part in the epic battle from the new film's explosive third act.
Everyone's favourite zombie slaying photo journalist, Frank West, returns in the ludicrous Dead Rising 4. A shopping mall is involved again because, well, social commentary - although I do see the irony in that snarky remark considering the topic of this article. Anyway, you can now buy Dead Rising 4 from GameStop for $39.99. Consume!
