Best PC gaming deals of the week

It’s the end of another week and what a week it has been. I think we’re all ready for a little old fashioned video game escapism, and what better way to get cracking on that than with a look at some of the best gaming and techy type deals of the past week. As always, 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.

Blade Runner 4K Special Edition Blu-ray set

bladerunner

Blade Runner is a movie with a truly baffling amount of different editions, releases and cuts. The upcoming release of the film’s 4K version adds one (hopefully final) one to the list. Right now, you can pre-order a beautifully put together Special Edition of the 4K cut of Blade Runner, which also comes with every other edition ever released, all on a set of Blu-ray discs. It’s due out later this year.

Blade Runner 4K Special Edition box set for £39.99 from Zavvi

The big set is also available at Amazon UK, though for a higher price at the time of writing. That price may very well come down if the site decides to price match Zavvi.

Blade Runner 4K Special Edition box set for £49.99 from Amazon UK

If you don’t fancy getting every known edition of the movie, you can opt instead to pick up just ‘The Final Cut’ in its 4K form in a fancy steelbook edition as well.

Blade Runner The Final Cut 4K Steelbook Edition for £27.99 from Amazon UK

Ash vs. Evil Dead Blu-rays

Ash vs Evil Dead Season 2 2016

Even though the show has been on television for a couple of years now and both seasons have been available on Blu-ray for months in the US, the UK has had to wait for boxed editions of Ash vs. Evil Dead. Until now, that is, since both seasons of the show can be pre-ordered on Blu-ray before their October release. Both box sets are currently cheapest over at Zavvi, where they’ll cost you £24.99 each.

Ash vs. Evil Dead Seasons 1 and 2 on Blu-ray for £24.99 each from Zavvi

Both box sets are also available at Amazon UK, though right now they’re priced up noticeably higher, at around £35 each. Worth checking, though, just in case of a price match.

Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 1 on Blu-ray for £33.99 from Amazon UK
Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 2 on Blu-ray for £34.99 from Amazon UK

    Looks like the 4k monitor from eBuyer has gone back up in price already :(

  2. MetroDetroitGaming says:

    4k is over rated and unless you have a super beast of a machine you are not gonna get 60fps. Nothing beats 3440×1440 running at 100hz IMO (Acer X34 Pred)

      With a 27″ 4K monitor, I find it is almost always worth turning down effects to run games at the full 4K resolution.

    Comics? Blu-rays? TVs? Guess there weren’t enough game bargains this week.
