Jelly Deals roundup: PSVR for £250, Wolfenstein 2, PS4 Pro bundles and more

Plus: Humble's Fall sale.

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.

We now stand on the very edge of Black Friday 2017 week - not that it's stopped any retailers from pushing their respective deals live early. With more and more offers going live every day, this seems like a fairly good time to have a look at some of the best deals available.

If you'd like to keep up with all of our Black Friday coverage, we've got guides pages up and running which will be updated daily through the season of sales. Our pages for PS4 Black Friday, Xbox Black Friday, Nintendo Black Friday, PC gaming Black Friday, and more, are all yours to peruse and bookmark as you see fit.

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.

Before we begin all of the Black Friday madness, here's a nice reminder that Humble's Monthly offering has changed over to a fresh set of games this month. Signing up now for $12 / £10, you'll get instant access to H1Z1 as well as some in-game content and a stack of Steam keys headed your way at the end of the month. If you want to cancel or pause your membership after this month, that's fine too.

GamersGate has launched its Black Friday sale early, featuring a litany of exclusively digital download versions of games - mostly Steam keys. There are some very decent discounts on good games here including Dark Souls 3, Observer, Space Engineers, Layers of Fear, God Eater 2 and more. Even Jalopy gets a look-in.

Perhaps one of the most under-appreciated horror games of the year, The Evil Within 2 saw its first major discount this week in both the UK and US. The game can be yours for £30 or $40 in your respective territories.

With the release of the 'Definitive Edition' of Pillars of Eternity and the announcement of a sequel, it's a great time to get involved with Obsidian's classic-style RPG. Especially since you can pick up the game and all its DLC packs for extra cheap at GOG right now.

One of the very best TVs you can get your hands on these days - LG's stunning 4K OLED set - is currently down to its cheapest ever price over at Amazon right now, just in time for Black Friday. It's still going to cost you a whole lot of money, but it's nice to see the price slip down a decent amount - it's currently $1596.99 right now in the US and £1499 in the UK, for a limited time.

UK Deals

This week gave us one of the best PS4 Pro deals we've seen all year. Over at Currys PC World, you can pick up a PS4 Pro console with FIFA 18 and Crash Bandicoot N'Sane Trilogy for £299, a full £50 off the price of a PS4 Pro on its own. You can also add Call of Duty: WW2 to that bundle and get the whole lot for £329.99 if you like, and stack Doom and Fallout 4 on there as well for £10 on top of that.

For a very limited time, you can get yourself an absolute steal of a bundle on a PSVR headset this week. For £249.99, you'll be getting a PSVR headset, PS4 camera, PSVR Worlds and a copy of either Skyrim VR or Gran Turismo Sport.

Almost like clockwork for a Bethesda release in 2017, Wolfenstein 2 has seen its first significant discount this week. The game is currently available in its Steelbook Edition form over at GAME for £29.99 on both PS4 and Xbox One. Get it while you can.

Amazon has launched a couple of the better Xbox One S bundles seen this year so far, if that's your kind of thing. You can currently pick up an Xbox One S 1TB console with Assassin's Creed Oranges, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Rainbow Six Siege, all for £229.99, which is a bit of a bargain.

Alternatively, you can get a 500GB model with Middle-earth: Shadow of War and Star Wars Battlefront 2. That'll cost you £199.99.

Argos kicked off its Black Friday offers earlier this week with a nice batch of discounts on various bits of tech and some key deals on video games. Here are some of the best deals:

If you're in need of a DualShock 4 controller and you quite fancy saving about £10, you can pick up this GT Sport themed pad. Well, I say 'themed', what I mean is that it's a silver controller with the Gran Turismo logo on the touchpad. Still, it's cheaper than the average DualShock.

GAME has officially launched its Black Friday 2017 deals, so if you're even the littlest bit curious, here are some of the highlights:

If you have a particular desire to have your own personal robot AI buddy living with you and listening to your every word 24/7, then good news! For Black Friday, Amazon has discounted its Echo device by £20 and its smaller sibling, the Echo Dot, by £15. While stock lasts and for a limited time and all that.

Amazon's early Black Friday offers this weekend include three models of this Toshiba 4K TV set with massive discounts. These are all the 2017 models, too, so if you're looking for a 4K TV on a budget, you can get one for as little as £329.

For those of you out there with families, be aware that as part of the site's Black Friday offers, you can save some cash on a 'Kids Edition' of the Fire 7 or Fire HD 8 tablets right now. That purchase includes a bumper case for the tablet as well as Amazon's guarantee that if the device gets broken at any point, they'll replace it with a new one free of charge. The Fire 7 is down to £70 from £100 and the Fire HD 8 is reduced to £90 from £130.

US Deals

If you're after an Xbox One S rather than the newer Xbox One X, you can head over to Walmart this week and grab a bargain bundle that includes a 500GB Xbox One S console as well as Halo Master Chief Collection, Call of Duty: WW2 and your choice of either Madden 18 or FIFA 18. All of that will cost you $249 for a limited time.

Alternatively, you can head to Microsoft's own store and pick up an Xbox One S in one of the site's very many bundle options, all starting at $249 as well.

NewEgg is getting involved with the early Black Friday deals madness that's currently sweeping every online retailer around. There are new deals being added every day with this one, but you can currently grab 18 per cent off selected Corsair RAM, plus nice price cuts on Acer laptops, gaming headsets and more.

Best Buy's got a great clearance deal going right now on a 12-pack of eneloops this week. For those not in the know, eneloops are a brand of rechargeable batteries that have a tendency to last an insanely long amount of time. They can be used anywhere that regular AA batteries are. This is some great value for what it is.

If you happen to need the charging pack as well, you can grab an 8-pack of eneloops with the charging pack for $19.99 at Amazon.

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.
