Sony PlayStation Pro 1TB (save £50)

Ready to join the 4K revolution? Once you’ve got your Ultra HD telly (of which plenty are on offer today) you’ll want a console capable of those glorious visuals.

Sure, the PS4 Pro doesn’t offer native 4K like the Xbox One X, but with smart upscaling powers, the likes of God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted 4 will still look bloody spectacular.

Oculus Rift and Touch Controllers (save £51)

It wasn’t long ago that all the high-tier VR headsets cost just under £1000. Fortunately, these prices have plummeted quickly, most noticeably for our top ranked headset the Oculus Rift.

With room-scale tracking, a growing line-up of quality games and the unique Touch Controllers bundled in, the Oculus Rift now represents incredible value at just £349. Make sure you’ve a beefy enough PC before investing though!

Far Cry 5 Limited Edition (save £22)

Ubisoft’s bombtastic first-person shooter has left tropical islands and the Himalayas behind in favour of the farmlands of Montana.

Don’t think it will be a peaceful trip though, as religious fanatics are running around with assault rifles. Exactly like modern day America then. At least you can take an online buddy along to the shootouts.

Sony PlayStation VR starter Pack + Move controllers (save £84.98)

Undercutting even the Oculus Rift, Sony’s PSVR is currently the cheapest high-tier virtual reality headset you can buy.

While it doesn’t offer room-scale tracking like the Rift or Vive, it’s still probably the best option for budget-minded VR newcomers since you don’t need a monster PC to run it - just your PlayStation 4.

This may not be exciting as a new console or game, but it will save you a lot of money if you’re subscribed to PlayStation online service.

And if you’re not already a PS Plus subscriber, this is a great time to start, offering you free games every month and given you access to online multiplayer so you can finally get a taste of the likes of Fortnite and Overwatch.

The Crew 2 (save £11)

Ubisoft’s open-world racer has barely been out a week, and yet it's already available in a bargain deal at £34.

While we’re hoping that future updates will add more content and give players more reason to explore the scaled-down America, this is still a decent ride that will have your wheels spinning until Forza Horizon 4 arrives.
