UK Deals

£20 off Amazon Prime

This week, Amazon confirmed that its annual mid-year day of discounts Prime Day is set to take place on Tuesday 11th July. Well, technically it starts at 6pm July 10th because Amazon apparently believes days are 30 hours long. Before all the madness with actual deals on products happens, though, the site is offering you the chance to save £20 on a year’s Amazon Prime, bringing the cost of a membership down to £59. That offer is live now and expires July 3rd.

Steam Link and Controller discounted at GAME

In case you missed the price drop kicking off last week, you can still pick up a Steam Link for its lowest ever price of £11.99 at GAME. This one is due to finish in the coming week or two and is obviously while stock lasts, so get in there while you can. The Steam Controller has also retained its reduced price for another week and game will give you free shipping on both of these, making them cheaper than buying direct through Steam.

In the UK, you can pick up either of this from GAME

Steam Link for £11.99 from GAME
Steam Controller for £27.99 from GAME

Logitech MX Master wireless mouse under £48

Regarded by many as one of the best wireless mice available to buy right now, the Logitech MX Master wireless mouse is currently reduced down to £47.99 at Amazon UK, from its regular £80 price.

    The mouse is cheaper on amazon.it for us EU folks: link to amazon.it

      I see the Anywhere MX 2 is also available for a tenner less. I have a first-generation Anywhere mouse that’s showing its age, can anyone tell me if there’s a compelling reason to choose the MX Master over that? The extra scroll wheel seems marginally useful at best.

  2. GomezTheChimp says:

    Is the Steam controller worth £27.99? Would I see any improvement over my MS Xbox 360 controller. It would be used as a replacement controller, not a mouse/kb substitute.

    • Killy_V says:

      Beware the Steam controller is totally different. I bought in on sale, plugged it, try to play Hotline Miami 10min with it, couldn’t make it, so I unplugged it and it’s now in its box.

      If you want to really make the best out of it, you need to spend some time with the controls schemes. It’s not pick up and play like the MS controller.

      • GrumpyElk says:

        In the beginning it felt a tad overwhelming and the button layout somewhat strange.
        But i soon found out that the controler supported games usually work out of the box and for everything else the community templates do all the work for me. I just download for every game what the community voted as best setup. Takes 15 seconds and i am good to go. You can further tweak it, but it usually isnt necessary.
        And the “strange” button layout was just me being used to the 360 controler. Now it feels very natural.
        I bought it about 6 month ago. Havent touched my two 360´s ever since. Maybe give it another try?

    • Agnosticus says:

      It’s not comparing well to a xbox360, except you’ll want to play a grand strategy game, a point-and-click or anything mouse-driven.

      But as a replacement for a “normal” controller it’s utter rubbish! Small buttons, awkward button layout, not the best stick and its not concave. Had no use for the left touch field, it’s utterly useless as a D-pad.

      And I’ve really tried using it, because of its remote-replacing aspects, when sitting on a couch…but it just didn’t work out…happily using a ps4 controller now (has a touchpad too)

      I’d say, stick to your guns!

    • Repojam says:

      Over an Xbox controller probably not. I have a steam controller and use it frequently. It has a bit of an adjustment curve but I like it. I picked it up on the cheap when I found one on sale.

    • Unclepauly says:

      It is meant as a sub-in for m/kb. There is absolutely no reason why you would sub it in for an actual controller.

  3. Sleepery says:

    Tacky lootboxes GMG! Don’t you need a gambling license for a situation where you can get back less then you spend?

    • Darth Gangrel says:

      This business model really irks me and it’s even worse when they try to dress up or make it seem more fancy than it is.

      Mystery boxes? The only mystery is how people keep falling for that scheme, but apparently it’s great fun not to know what you’re getting. If people want to waste their money it’s their call, all I can do is shake my fist and write angry comments on the internet.

      • Ghostwise says:

        Of course you know what you’re getting. You always get ShipLord.

    • fish99 says:

      Agree, it’s the sort of tacky nonsense I’d expect from G2A, not the usually respectable GMG.

  4. Katar says:

    I was going to ask why Vermintide was so expensive on Bundlestars when it is normally £7-£8 when on sale, but that is because the article uses the price of the collectors edition rather then the normal edition. I can’t get the site to show me exactly how much the game will cost using the RED5 discount without creating an account, but I guess it will be a tiny bit cheaper then Steam’s price of £7.58.

    I’m still on the fence about buying it or anything really as my current Graphics Card is off being repaired/replaced and I definitely can’t play most new games. So I guess I should be happy that my card was faulty so I don’t spend any money on more games?

    • Ghostwise says:

      Not spending money on games is good. It makes it easier to stockpile nuclear weapons in one’s secret volcano base.

  5. tslog says:

    Can I declare waiting till the end of the steam sale cheaper price is now dead, at least for me it is.

    From the 40 games on my Steam wish list 2 years ago to over 80 games now, I’ve never seen one price drop near the end of the sale, for a single game, for years now. Not one.

    Sure there’s time left on this sale but a late price drop hasn’t been the case for me for years.
    And i’m not talking mostly obscure games, Its a mix of well and less known.

    • malkav11 says:

      There is no reason to wait. They don’t do daily sales or flash sales anymore, just the one sale price for the whole event. It’s presumably due to the refund policy, which would otherwise end up with a lot of people buying games at the base sale price and then refunding when that game popped up as a daily or flash sale. Unfortunately, while I am all for not having to hover over Steam for arbitrarily time-restricted discounts, this seems to have come with a corresponding reduction in depth of discount. :/

      • Zunalter says:

        I imagine that is due to the asymmetrical amount of risk devs are taking with the refund policy. In the old days, you could still take a chance on a game you weren’t sure about if the price was right. The deeper discount was the “benefit” to the “cost” of not being able to get a refund. Now, the dev takes more of the risk, since if you don’t like the game (or any number of other reasons) you can immediately get your money back. So there is less incentive on their end to take an even greater burden on themselves via a deeper discount. I guess the question is which universe do you prefer?
