This week's best deals: Xbox Live, Burnout Paradise Remastered, PSVR and more

Plus, three Blu-rays for £20.

Now that all of that 'May the 4th be with you' madness has died down a bit thanks to the ceaseless onward march of time, we can get back to the regular, important things - like a big batch of video games and tech deals to check out, of course. Whether you've been saving for something in particular, or you just fancy treating yourself, you might find something in this week's batch of the best deals around.

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

The shockingly appropriate timing of this Star Wars themed sale and the Star Wars Day branding at Humble Bundle slightly undersells the fact that it means you can pick up Knights of the Old Republic for £2.37, TIE Fighter for £2.79, Dark Forces for £1.62 and Rebel Assault 1 and 2 for £2.79.

Up to 66 per cent off Star Wars titles from Humble Store

Green Man Gaming will give you an extra 22 per cent off a batch of games when you enter the code MAY22 at checkout. It'll even work on some of the site's already-discounted titles, too.

UK Deals

The beast returns - Hyperkin is bringing back the original Xbox's controller in a shiny new Xbox One form. Featuring some new trappings including the original Xbox startup animation playing in the controller itself, the new Duke releases on Friday 18th May and will cost you £70.

If you happen to be buying an Xbox One console or controller anytime soon, you can save yourself a £5 on a three-month Xbox Live Gold membership when you buy it at the same time. Which is nice.

Ni No Kuni 2 has been out for over a month now, and as things tend to go, if there is still stock of a collector's edition after that first launch period, it's usually time to discount it a little. Such is the case with the King's Edition on PS4, which is down to £85 right now, while the standard sits at about £32.

Over at Tesco Direct, you can pick up a PSVR headset along with a PS4 camera and copies of Resident Evil 7 and Skyrim VR, all for £269 - which is one of the nicest deals we've seen so far.

Those of you daring enough to be building a gaming PC in this particular economic state, you may as well save as much cash as you can along the way. With that in mind, this AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 8-core CPU comes with a Wraith Prism Cooler and is discounted by £43 at the moment, costing £286.45.

As wrong as it might sound to say, one of my favourite games of the year so far has been the remastered version of a decade-old open-world racer. Burnout Paradise Remastered is down to £22.50 on both Xbox One and PS4 right now at Go2Games and it's a ton of fun.

Movie buffs and horror fanatics can indulge in their collective vices this week as HMV is offering a range of Arrow Video Blu-rays in either 3 for £20 or 5 for £30 bundles. It's the perfect excuse to add classics like The Thing, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, House or To Live and Die in L.A. to your collection.

If you don't mind going for a 'Grade A' version - which usually means it's a refurb or has an opened box - you can get yourself a fancy Razer Phone for about half price this week. It's currently £360 at LaptopsDirect, which, despite its on-the-nose name, sells phones apparently.

If you still don't own an Amazon Echo or any other Alexa-enabled device by now, you're probably the type that isn't going to go for one. That said, if the thing holding you back was the lack of a screen - rejoice! The Amazon Echo Show is currently £60 off directly from Amazon, now costing £139.99 for a limited time.

US Deals

So this is a thing - you can now buy yourself a fashionable bust of Captain Picard (circa The Next Generation) in his now-infamous 'facepalm' pose. Sure to impress and/or worry any and all visitors to your home

The extra pretty Special Edition of Metroid: Samus Returns on 3DS is back in stock and discounted down to $41 right now. If you missed out on this one at launch, you should probably grab it while you can.,

Those of you who would prefer to forgo the Joy-Cons altogether can now pick up an official Nintendo Switch Pro controller (which, as of this week, now also works on PC) for $59, a saving of around $11.

This was bound to happen at some point, wasn't it? Hyperkin has gone and created a Joy-Con grip that finally makes good on all those memes from when the Switch launched - a grip that makes sure that your Joy-Cons even more closely resemble a floppy-eared dog of some kind. It's silly, but it's also pretty cheap.

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.
