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.
In case you’ve been asleep all month, you should be aware: video games are now coming out and it looks like they won’t be stopping until the end of the year. Week after week, there’s a big-deal release headed to shelves. Then there’s Black Friday 2017 to contend with too, at the end of next month. Needless to say, this’ll be a busy couple of months. That said, there’s another batch of the week’s best gaming and tech deals to check out, so let’s go ahead and do that 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. Let’s get started.
Over at our sister-site Jelly Deals, the team there (me) got together with the folks from the Humble Store to offer four PC copies of Destiny 2 to give away to you readers. Entry is live now, closing on Monday, 23rd October, with codes going out on the game’s launch day. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning, head over to Jelly Deals and you can do just that.

In the realm of weird tech gadgets, the Hyperkin SmartBoy is the newest and one of the weirdest. This thing will let you play your existing Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges on an Android smartphone. It even adds a set of face buttons and a D-pad to the front of your device in order to emulate the original Game Boy that much better. It’s out now and can be found cheapest in the below places:
In the UK:
In the US:
Figma, a long-running series of collectable figurines depicting pop culture characters, has a brand new entry in the form of Overwatch’s cyborg ninja Genji. This limited figure is available to pre-order from now until November 15th, and it’s expected to ship around Summer next year.
This month’s Humble Monthly early unlocks are available now and include a set of Bethesda titles with added bonus packs and downloadable content. Quake Champions, Elder Scrolls Online and a special pack for The Elder Scrolls: Legends can all be yours for $12 / £12 right now, with a set of Steam keys headed your way at the end of the month once you sign up.
The 55-inch LG OLED 4K TV is not only one of Digital Foundry’s top picks when it comes to 4K sets for gaming, but it may just be one of the best televisions you can get right now. It’s not cheap, sure, but you can save a chunk of cash on one of these models this week by entering the code LSTV10A during checkout. That’ll take the price down to £1619.10, the set’s lowest ever price.
NetherRealm’s DC-based superhero brawler Injustice 2 is down to its lowest price since launching earlier this year. Head to Amazon UK and you can pick up an Xbox One or PS4 copy for under £23.
The Surge is available right now for under £12 on PS4, which is not only its lowest historical price since launching but also might be cheap enough for a lot of people suffering from Dark Souls withdrawals to give this one a shot.
Speaking of games hitting their lowest ever prices, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ on Nintendo Switch has finally seen a significant price cut this week over at Base. There, you can grab the boxed copy of the game (complete with trinkets and a paper manual) for £24.99 with free delivery. That price also beats the Nintendo eshop price of £35.99 quite significantly.
ThinkGeek has an exclusive vinyl box set of Skyrim’s orchestral soundtrack right now. This set features four LPs in total, one side of which features a laser-etched Dragonborn insignia. This one is a real collector’s piece and is available to order now.
For a short time before the game launches, Amazon Prime members can secure a copy of Assassin’s Creed Origins on Xbox One or PS4 for $48. You’ll see that discount in your basket when you go to checkout, that is as long as you’re an active Prime subscriber.
Ubisoft’s open-world co-op action adventure Ghost Recon Wildlands is down to its lowest ever price on PC this week at Amazon US. It’ll cost you $14.99 right now, in the form of a Uplay code delivered directly to your email inbox.
Remember when Mass Effect Andromeda launched earlier this year? Seems like just yesterday, doesn’t it? If you have still yet to grab a copy of this one, you can head to Amazon US right now and pick up a copy on Xbox One or PS4 for under $11 each, which is vaguely criminal.
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.
