Here's our review of the game

Yeah, we think GameStop has swept the board with that last deal.

However, should its crazy PS Vita offer sell out then here's your back up, as spotted by CVG community supremo Cult.

PS Vita plus 4GB memory stick and LittleBigPlanet Vita for £190 at Sainsbury's.

Posted at 12:08 on November 23rd

Has GameStop won Black Friday? It has a pretty insane deal right now.

New PS Vita (Wi-Fi version), plus 4GB memory stick, and Need For Speed Most Wanted, for £154. Take a look here

We just checked this out on another retailer, and together they would usually be worth about £270, so you're saving a gigantic £115!

Now, the offer is available on GameStop Italy, which may make you doubt whether Britons can take advantage. We were able to get to the checkout stage and Royal Mail delivery was an option, so we think it's all good.

other GameStop Vita Black Friday deals

  • Street Fighter Vs Tekken: £25
  • LittleBigPlanet Vita: £25

PC fans have an even better deal: Just £20.

Posted at 10:40 on November 23rd

Have a Vita? If so, you'll know how farcically expensive the games are on the PlayStation Store.

So, in a eerie moment of inverted logic, a retailer is offering boxed product at a significant discount.

ShopTo is selling Need For Speed: Most Wanted on PS Vita for £27.

Just for comparison, that game's listed on the PS Store right now at £40. Mental.

Posted at 10:38 on November 23rd

Pretty good deal here for PC fans: Skyrim for £10.

Posted at 14:26 on November 22nd

Jesus! Americans are getting some nasty deals. Amazon is offering Max Payne Complete (which is Max Payne 3 plus a DLC season pass) for just $20 dollah. That's about an 80 per cent saving.

Posted at 14:08 on November 22nd

PC World put a banner up on its website earlier today suggesting it was going to have a Black Friday PRICE CRASH 2pm.

So here we are, and it's not quite done that. More a price stumble. A trip. But still, there's a good deal to be had.

It's offering Resistance 3 for £8.99 - find it here.

Well this is interesting. Sony is offering PlayStation Plus subscribers a full year of the Music Unlimited Premium service for £11.99 - that's a 90 per cent discount!

Music Unlimited is basically Spotify for your PS3, PC and Vita - though I don't know anyone who's tried it so can't comment on the service itself.

Sony says: "Listen to millions and millions of songs any time you like, from the latest hits to the classics that inspired them. Choose any album or song, create your own library or playlists, sync with your computer, and sit back and enjoy Music Unlimited's numerous channels, all of which come with no annoying ad interruptions.

Music Unlimited apparently has about 15 million songs, while Spotify has about 18 million, you perhaps you can expect a similar service?

Go here if you're interested.

Just noticed that the electrical goods retailer Currys is having a clearance sale in the lead up to Christmas.

Most of the deals are pretty okay - nothing astounding, but here's the two best ones.

Firstly, Super Street Fighter IV for Nintendo 3DS is just £5 (here)

The second one you might not like at first. It's a Wii game, for £25. But wait! This is an offer for Donkey Kong Country Returns - a brilliant title by Retro Studios, and likely one of those games that will climb in price as time goes on. (It's here).

Oh, btw, Curry's former market rival Comet is having a fire sale as it closes down. These aren't game offers, but since you're here I know you like a good deal, so take a look if you're interested.

Posted at 11:30 on November 21st

Amazon has opened two new game offers on its Black Friday page.

For the next two hours (until 1:30pm), Darksiders 2 for Xbox and PS3 will be sold for £15.

It also is offering WWE 13 (Xbox/PS3) for £25. Take a look here (click on categories and select 'games').

CVG's Darksiders 2 review praised the game as a "sweeping, brutal sequel with an incredible amount to sink your teeth into". Not bad at all.

Posted at 09:51 on November 21st

Morning all.

We'll open today's bargain feast with a tasty little starter from the team at Konami.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PS Vita is currently £15 at Zavvi.

It's a fantastic bundle - MGS2 and MGS3, plus the first two original Metal Gear games. It will keep your Vita battery nice and warm through the winter weeks.

It never rains but pours. Valve will be hosting a Steam Autumn Sale from November 21st to 27th, according to Tamás Bakó, the CEO of Artery Studios.

Posted at 16:29 on November 20th
More digital love. Microsoft executive Larry Hryb has just published a long list of game discounts available on Xbox Live Marketplace until Monday November 26th.

While the list is packed with delightful content, it's presented via a dull Excel spreadsheet. SAME OLD MICROSOFT ;)

But seriously, there are some pretty decent offers here -

Have a family? Perhaps a Wii for just £90 will tempt you for Christmas. It doesn't shut them up the way a TV can, but you can still have lots of fun!

The console bundle comes with Wii Sports and Wii Party, and if you buy an additional game it will cost just £15 (from a selected range)

The deal is on Amazon's Black Friday page, and only FOUR HOURS remain before the deal is over.

Find it here, fellow taxpayers.

Our beloved community is coming up with some great deals.

CVG regular El Mag has found a 360 copy of Dirt Showdown that could be yours for £7.30!

We gave it a respectful 7.8 in our Dirt Showdown review. Not bad at all.

Posted at 11:43 on November 20th
We're not sure whether online retailer Simply Games is gripped by Black Friday fever or just ignoring its duty to adhere to profit margins.

Either way, it's selling the new Hitman Absolution for £28 on consoles!

Pretty crazy, that. The PC version starts at £18 too. Snipe the offer here

Pretty sick, this.

The catch? You'll have to wait until January for the release :(

Posted at 11:51 on November 20th

First up is Amazon UK. It's offering Rocksmith (usually about £50) for £30 on Xbox and PS3. Not a bad start. Find it here

Christmas! There, we've said it. It's now officially here.

Nothing kicks off the holiday season quite like the Black Friday shopping madness, which is traditionally where stores across America clear out stock to make way for the potential Christmas gifts. How do they clear out stock? By selling it crazy, unspeakably cheap.

The tradition has these days become more of an excuse for (both online and in the UK) retailers to seize the moment and offer some bargains of their own.

CVG is here to help. We'll be posting the rudest, most ridiculous offers in this regularly updated LIVE blog.

Black Friday is three days away, so there's plenty of time to find something.
