Jelly Deals roundup: Call of Duty, Nintendo Switch cases, cheap Xbox Ones, and more

Grim Fandango is cheap again! Alabanza!

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.

Welcome back to another deals roundup - and while I've been meaning to dig into a bunch of new releases, I have been playing absolutely nothing but Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you're not quite as obsessed as I am right now and feel like picking up a fancy new toy to play with, though, we've got a week's worth of the best gaming deals to check out. So let's get right to it.

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. Let's get started.

UK & US Deals

Over on the greener pastures of Xbox Live, Gold members (ha!) can get a few key discounts on a range of games including Rainbow Six Siege, Hitman Season One, Gears 4, Far Cry 4 and the truly wonderful Axiom Verge. Specifically, here are some of the highlights of the current batch of Gold savings.

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Full Throttle Remastered is not only due out on April 18th but available to pre-order right now, GOG.com is celebrating by taking up to 90% off of some of Double Fine's finest wares. If you're unfamiliar with Double Fine's body of work, perhaps you've heard of Broken Age, Brutal Legend, Psychonauts or Massive Chalice? Also up for grabs here is a downright bargain-priced copy of Grim Fandango Remastered, one of the best adventure games ever made. You can pick these games up individually or in one big bundle if you prefer.

  • Day of the Tentacle Remastered for £3.69 / $4.53 / €4.29
  • Grim Fandango Remastered for £2.09 / $2.48 / €2.39
  • Broken Age for £3.79 / $4.71 / €4.49
  • Psychonauts for £1.69 / $1.99 / €1.89
  • Massive Chalice for £2.99 / $3.71 / €3.49

Nintendo and its official partners have a few options for Switch cases out there, but you may have missed the announcement of the travel case pictured above - it's a case for your entire Nintendo Switch, dock and all. In the past week, I got myself a screen protector as well as a carrying case for my Switch, which goes to show how paranoid I now am about damaging the little guy. If you're similarly paranoid right now, feel free to check out our buying guide to the best accessories for Switch over at Jelly Deals. It may be of some use.

Here's a friendly reminder that this month's star game when you subscribe to Humble's monthly stack of game keys is Jonathan Blow's puzzle explorathon, The Witness. You'll get that and a handful of other games by subscribing for $12 (around £10). The games change each month, so if you've been meaning to try out The Witness, subscribe before the end of March. The nice folks at Humble say that you can cancel a subscription at any point too, which is nice.

UK Deals

If you need a little bit more Kit Harrington in your life before the new season of Game of Thrones starts, or you happen to enjoy friendly robot soldier buddies in your video games, you can grab a copy of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on Xbox One or PS4 for its cheapest price yet. Amazon UK will sell you one of its exclusive editions (which come with some pin badges and extra digital content) for £14.99 at the moment.

Right this very moment, over at Microsoft's own online store, you can pick up an Xbox One S 500GB console bundled with Minecraft for £219.99, and get either an extra controller or a copy of Forza Horizon 3 for free, alongside your new machine. If you fancy it, Microsoft will also give you 40% off a 3-month Xbox Live subscription while you check out, too.

Weirdly, the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition is suddenly back in stock over at GAME.co.uk on both Xbox One and PS4, which I like to imagine is due to someone uncovering some long-lost stock in a warehouse somewhere. So if you still want one of these versions of the game, it'll cost you £69.99 right now.

Pac-Man is one of the oldest and most recognisable figures in video games so what better way to show respect to the freakish orb-mouth thing than with a plush effigy of him. This Pac-Man gift set contains a digital copy of Pac-Man 256 for PS4 alongside plushes of Pac-Man and three ghosts, as well as a Pac-Man watch for some reason. It's currently part of a clearance sale for £16.85 at the moment.

US Deals

Final Fantasy 15 has seen its biggest price cut since its launch late last year over at Amazon US: the game is currently available for $34.99 on both Xbox One and PS4. That offer is for a limited time only, though, so if you want it, you'd better head over there Prompto.

In one of the cheapest Xbox One offers so far, NewEgg will sell you a Battlefield 1 Special Edition Xbox One S 1TB Xbox One S console - which comes with a digital copy of Battlefield 1 - for $239.99 via its eBay outlet today. This is undoubtedly a move to clear out stock of the military green console, but it's undeniably good value.

Over at NewEgg's main site, if you decide to buy yourself a Vive VR headset anytime before Monday, the site will throw in a Radeon RX480 4GB graphics card (around $185 value) absolutely free. Sure, you're still paying $799 for the Vive, but getting a whole graphics card as a free bonus ain't bad.

If you're the type to like your PC accessories to be as garish and questionable as possible, you may want to head over to Bethesda's official store right now. The site is currently clearing stock of its Vault 111-themed SteelSeries accessories - specifically, a gaming mouse and a headset - dropping the prices by about $80 each. The mouse will run you $20 while the headset (a Siberia model) costs $30 while stock lasts.

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. I'll be over at Jelly Deals, scouring the world wide web for more deals. Feel free to visit, or follow us on Twitter and give us a like on Facebook. Oh, and if you're the owner of a shiny new Switch console, you may want to check out our guides to the best Nintendo Switch Micro SD cards over at JD.
