The Weekend Spend: 7 fantastic post-payday tech buys

Rush Blu-ray steelbook (£21)

Ron Howard's brilliant Formula 1 film hits Blu-ray this week. Based around the rivalry between 70s racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, it features career-best performances from Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl, and intense action on the track that highlights the perils of mid-70s racing. Plus it's so redolent of the period that it reeks of Brut.

The steelbook edition comes in a lovely minimalist package – or, if you just want the film, you can pick up the standard Blu-ray for £13.

More after the break...

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition (£45)

Lara Croft arrives on next-gen consoles, with a spit-and-polish to bring her up to the graphical standards expected by Xbox One and PS4 gamers, including hi-res texture maps and particle effects help to further immerse you in Lara's world.

The titular heroine's been given a complete makeover too, with a more detailed facial model, subsurface scattering and more realistic hair. And the game underpinnning those pretty graphics is as impressive as ever – "thrilling combat, bountiful secrets and roomy environments make for an impressively addictive cocktail," as we said in our review.

Game's limited edition comes complete with a digital comic and soundtrack, an artbook and the DLC from the PS3 version.

Gran Turismo 6 (£20)

Get your motor running and slip into the driving seat of the PlayStation 3's "real driving simulator" – with stunning graphics, 1200-plus cars (including a Moon Buggy) and absurd attention to detail, it should keep you ticking over nicely this weekend. And it's only £20 – bargain!
