Like a night in shining armour appearing over the horizon, the weekend has come to whisk us away to a better of life of relaxation and gaming specials.
This weekend, there are some big deals on offer from retailers such as BT Games, Raru, CNA, Musica and Game.
Xbox One and The Witcher 3 bundle (BT Games)
To celebrate the launch of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt next week, BT Games has launched a special pre-order price for this weekend.
A 500GB Xbox One console and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is priced at R5,999.90, which is a good price for a PS4 by itself, let alone coming with a brand-new release.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood pre-order special (CNA)
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is the highly-anticipated standalone prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order, and its touching down on 22 May, and CNA has given some incentive to pick up the new release by cutting the pre-order price of the Xbox One and PS4 versions down to R199.00 each, while the PC version is R149.00.
2 for R500 games special (Musica)
Musica is currently offering gamers the chance to pick up two highly-acclaimed yet slightly older games for R500 in total. There are some solid games to choose from, including: Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Batman:Arkham Asylum and PES 2014.
Both Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of all the games are available.
PS4 and Mortal Kombat special (CNA)
CNA is holding a 3 Day Deal Rush special promotion this weekend, and one of the items on sale is a PS4 and game bundle, featuring the 500GB console, one DualShock 4 controller and the recently-released Mortal Kombat X.
PS4 and voucher special (Raru)
The PS4 standalone console has seen a price-cut from Raru down to R5,999, and for extra measure, the online retailer is throwing in a R200 voucher when you make the purchase – which should help cut a fair bit off of your first game purchase.
Xbox 360 special (Game)
Whether or not you think purchasing a “last-gen” console these days is worth it, there’s no denying that the continually decreasing prices and extensive library of games still makes it an option.
Game has revealed a specific gaming promotion for this week, which includes an new, slimmer Xbox 360 4GB standalone console for R1,999, down from the original price of R2,499.
