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.
A lot can happen in a week. A lot can happen in a weekend as well, which I say even though I’m about to spend as much of it as possible playing Prey. Before I go and do that, though, there’s a whole bunch of the best deals of the week to take a look at, so let’s do that, shall we?
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.
Once again, we’re kicking things off with a competition. This time, you can be in with a chance to win one of five PC copies of recently released horror puzzle-platformer Little Nightmares, kindly provided to us by the folks from GOG.com.

The current Deals with Gold range, available via Xbox Live, includes a bunch of discounts on big Xbox One titles as well as a set of super cheap Xbox 360 games, all of which are backwards compatible. So that’s nice.
There’s a brand new Humble Bundle live at the moment, focusing entirely on games that are rated ‘Very Positive’ or above on Steam. Most notable, of course, is the fact that this bundle includes a tier which will get you a copy of Stephen’s Sausage Roll. Enough said, really.

Pay more than the average
Pay $10 (around £7.74) or more

Games that cost less than a cup of coffee can’t be bad, right? See for yourself, since GAME is selling digital PC copies of platforming classic Rayman Origins (via Uplay) for 99p. The code will work in any territory but your mileage may vary on price, however.
Green Man Gaming is hosting a cross-promotion style sale in conjunction with Intel. The general premise of the sale is to promote games that work at their best when played on an Intel i7 processor. But hey, a sale is a sale and this one has Resident Evil 7 with 36% off. Here are some highlights:
- Euro Truck Simulator 2 – 75% Off – £3.82 / €5.10 / $6.37
- Rocket League – 30% Off – £10.49 / €13.99 / $13.99
- Resident Evil 7 – 36% Off – £25.49 / €31.87 / $38.24

The recently released remaster of Suda51’s detective thriller, The Silver Case, is available as a PC download with 40% off right now, from Humble’s store. As you can probably expect, a detective thriller coming from the creator of Lollipop Chainsaw, Let It Die, Killer 7 and No More Heroes, all is not what it seems at first and The Silver Case is quite the ride, to say the least.
I’m not ashamed to say that Shovel Knight is one of my favourite from the last few years, so the fact that the little indie game that could is getting its own Official Design Works book release this year is quite exciting to me. The book, which covers the making of the game and the history of the company, is up for pre-order at Amazon UK and US right now.
Not satisfied with releasing a brand new console in March (and a miniature console back in November), Nintendo is set to release yet another console this July. The New Nintendo 2DS XL is seemingly a hybrid of the best bits of the 2DS and the New 3DS, with more processing power and a folding, clamshell design. It also looks really slick. Pre-orders are live now and if you put an order down before the end of Sunday 7th May, you can take an extra £10 off by using the code VG10OFF75 during checkout.
I suppose it shouldn’t come as any shock that the instant a brand new Call of Duty game gets announced, last year’s model drops to its lowest ever price point. Over at Amazon UK, you can pick up Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare on Xbox One or PS4 (along with some Amazon exclusive pin badges and DLC) for £12.99 while stock lasts.
We’re just about two months removed from the launch of the Nintendo Switch, but the system is no less in demand now than it was then. Both the Neon and Grey versions tend to sell out within hours when they do crop up, which is why Tesco Direct has decided to start taking pre-orders again. The stock is due back in on May 25th but you can get an extra £20 off that pre-order by entering the code TDX-KPYK at checkout. Sure, you’ll have to wait for your console but it’ll be cheaper than you can find anywhere else, so that’s a plus.
Gaming laptops are always a bit pricey, so it’s nice to see a discount when they come along, however rare. Over at Ebuyer, you can pick up a 15-inch MSI gaming laptop (2.5GHz i5 processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, GeForce GTX 960M 2GB card) with a £150 discount currently. That makes the total price £599.98, and you’ll also get a free SteelSeries Kinzu V3 mouse and mousepad for your troubles.
Recently, SimplyGames has gotten into the habit of offering some of the cheapest options for console buying around. Case in point, you can currently grab an Xbox One S 1TB console along with a copy of Forza Horizon 3 for £199.99. Free next-day delivery, too
Microsoft is currently taking $100 off the price of this fancy little ASUS Transformer Mini 2-in-1 tablet PC hybrid thingy. That takes the price down to $249 for a limited time by going through Microsoft’s own store, which isn’t too bad for a shiny new tech thing.
It might be well in advance of the game’s actual release date, but NewEgg is currently offering you the chance to pre-order a copy of Star Wars Battlefront 2 on Xbox One, PS4 or PC with 25% off the price. Entering one of the codes below during checkout will take the price down to $44.99, which effectively makes it the cheapest way to get the game at this point in time.
