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.
Given that we’re now midway through December, it makes enough sense that some online retailers would be well underway with their respective Christmas sales. Not GAME, though, of course. The company has launched its set of just-in-time-for-Christmas offers this morning, covering PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch.
Don’t get your hopes up on Switch bargains right now, though, as there are currently only four products in the Switch section of the sale, two of which are in fact the same game. Still, L.A. Noire is down to 29.99 which isn’t bad.
Elsewhere on the site, you’ll find Star Wars Battlefront 2 for 35 (timely), Destiny 2 for 20, The Surge for 13, South Park: The Fractured But Whole for 30 and more. It’s not exactly the biggest range of items up for grabs and they’re not all winners in terms of prices, but there is some noteworthy stuff there.
Here are the highlights:
- Star Wars Battlefront 2 on Xbox One and PS4 for 34.99
- Destiny 2 on PS4 and Xbox One for 19.99
- Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy on PS4 for 22.99
- Assassin’s Creed Oranges on PS4 and Xbox One for 34.99
- Overwatch on PS4 and Xbox One for 24.99
- The Evil Within 2 on PS4 and Xbox One for 19.99
- FIFA 18 on Xbox One and PS4 for 32.99
- South Park: The Fractured But Whole on Xbox One and PS4 for 29.99
- L.A. Noire on Xbox One and PS4 for 24.99, Switch for 29.99
- Agents of Mayhem on PS4 and Xbox One for 9.99
- Yakuza Zero on PS4 for 24.99
- The Surge on PS4 and Xbox One for 12.99
- Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle on Switch for 39.99
Somewhat bafflingly, there is a separate section on the GAME website for December Deals, which leads to a set of offers with some crossover, but with some unique deals in there too, including Wolfenstein 2 for 29.99 on both consoles and Pokmon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon for 32.99 apiece.
That said, it’s worth noting that other retailers are taking note of these early morning discounts and getting competitive – Amazon has Star Wars Battlefront 2 for 32.99, Assassin’s Creed for 34.99, FIFA 18 on Xbox One for 32.99, L.A. Noire for 25.99 on Switch (22 on PS4 and Xbox One), among others. It’d be worth checking the site’s Last Minute Christmas Deals page to double check your purchases.
All of this is lovely and all but my absolute favourite discount for today is definitely the electric Star Wars Landspeeder for kids over at Toys R Us, which is down another 50 today. Just because it’s rad.
