Jelly Deals roundup: Bloodborne, Pro Evo 2017, Hitman, For Honor and more

Plus: Transformers The Movie on Blu-ray for £13.

A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.

What a week it has been. After Mass Effect Andromeda's release and the subsequent deluge of gifs onto the internet, a pricing error on Final Fantasy 15 that caused a bit of a ruckus mid-week and my own personal triumph of defeating the last of the four Divine Beasts in Zelda, I'd say it's been a pretty eventful few days. That being said, we've got another batch of the best gaming deals of the week to check out, so let's do that right now.

As usual, we've got deals that'll work in the UK, deals that'll work in the US and some deals that will work in both the UK and US, as well as presumably many other places. If you fancy it, there's also a roundup of the six best 4K monitors over at Jelly Deals right now, which might be worth a look. Let's get started.

UK & US Deals

There's a big, old fashioned multi-format sale over at the PlayStation Store right now with the sole purpose of highlighting some of the absolute best PlayStation-exclusive titles. Everything from Bloodborne to LittleBigPlanet is featured here so whether you own a PS4, a PS3 or a Vita, you can pick up some great games at their cheapest. As you may expect, PlayStation Plus members will get an extra discount on selected titles, too. Here are some highlights, prices are in British pounds for this lot but should work out in your local currency equivalents:

PlayStation's 'Only on PlayStation' Sale

Assassin's Creed Rogue, you'd be forgiven for not remembering, was released at the same time as the rather infamous Assassin's Creed Unity. While Unity landed on PS4 and Xbox One, Rogue was originally the Xbox 360 and PS3 entry to the series that later arrived on PC. This one features the series' one and only Irish assassin and chances are, you probably skipped this one at the time. If you fancy it, it's down to £7.99 / $9.99 from Ubisoft's own store.

By now, it would probably be more surprising if you didn't own at least one copy of Grand Theft Auto 5, I suppose. That being said, if you lack a copy or just fancy getting the game on PC, it's cheaper than ever right now at Bundle Stars. Use the code SPRING10 during checkout and you'll get the game for £17.99.

Humble Store time again, with this weekend playing host to a Square Enix publisher sale on the site. There's a whole bunch of titles on offer from the Deus Ex, Tomb Raider, Hitman and Just Cause franchises, to name a few but really, this is an elaborate set-up for me to once again mention that Sleeping Dogs is going for cheap and you really, really should get it. Nevertheless, here's some highlights from the sale.

  • Hitman Complete Season One for £19.99
  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided for £11.99
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider 20 Year Celebration for £15.99
  • Life is Strange Complete Season for £3.99
  • Just Cause 3 for £9.99
  • Legacy of Kain Collection for £3.74

And, of course, the real star:

  • Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition for £4.99

  • Spec Ops: The Line for £4.99

  • Bioshock Infinite for £4.99
  • XCOM Enemy Unknown for £3.74

On top of that whole 'massive PlayStation sale' thing that I mentioned earlier in the article, Sony is also offering an extra special discount on its 'Deal of the Week'. This week, the chosen game is Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 on PS4 which can be yours for just £7.99 which is a bit of a ridiculously low price.

The Xbox One Elite controller, despite being one of the best gaming controllers I've personally used, is definitely a luxury item. Its regular price of £130 is a little too high to casually recommend without pause, however good it is. Making it a touch easier is this bundle for Currys that will get you an Elite controller along with a copy of Gears of War 4 for £99.99.

Whether you're planning on building a new gaming PC or just happen to enjoy mixing electronics with water, you can head over to CCL Online and get this Cooler Master Seidon liquid cooler for under £50 at the moment. It's an all-in-one cooler which means you won't have to mess around with tubes or open sources of cooling liquid, it's essentially a radiator that will attach to your CPU. It's nifty and they're normally priced up nearer £100.

The first (and as far as many are concerned, only) Transformers movie came out just over 30 years ago. Transformers: The Movie - that's the animated one with lots of primary colours and fantastic 80s music - celebrated its anniversary at the end of last year with a special edition Blu-ray release in a fancy steelbook case. That version is currently on offer over at Amazon UK for its cheapest price yet, it's down to £12.99 for a limited time.

NewEgg is offering up a PS4 500GB Slim console via its eBay outlet that includes Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Resident Evil 7 and For Honor, all for the bizarrely low price of $299.99 for a limited time. All three games are boxed editions and everything mentioned is brand new, so it's a tempting deal to say the least.
