It’s E3 time! That’s exciting for gamers because it’s like gamer Christmas – as long as your family Christmases were about looking at things that you can’t have, just like mine were!

Instead of just looking at stuff you can’t have right now though, this year you’ll be able to buy and play things. Both PlayStation and Xbox consoles and PlayStation games are on special for the week of E3 – giving you some great deals on hardware and software before and during the industry’s biggest week. Sony’s got a Days of Play Special going that’s bound to give you a reason to open your wallet. The PlayStation 4 Pro is on special, bundled with Injustice 2 and Prey 2 for R6999. That’s a pretty god deal on a PRO with two of the best games of the year.

On top of that, there’s a wealth of Days of Play games on sale, including the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, Battlefield and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare going for cheap – along with a tonne of other games. Here’s a small culling, by the chaps from Cheapgamer.

If PlayStation’s not your flavour, There’s a sweet deal on Xbox One’s too. Until 19 June, you can pick up a 500GB Xbox One with a copy of FIFA 17 for a slick R3299 – which is almost approaching the mass market pricing the industry needs to thrive locally. The 1TB version of the older Xbox One will go for R4299. If you prefer the sleeker Xbox One S, the 500 GB version of that will be R4499 with FIFA 17 too, while the 1TB version is R5499. That’s some pretty aggressive pricing.

E3 kicks off this weekend – with EA”s Play starting the proceedings on Saturday, at 6PM local.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    WOW! That’s a superb price for Titanfall 2. I’m so going to grab it.

    …..
    No. No. No. Shit. No. No.
    Note to self: First play the games you have before hopping to others!!!!
    I’ve 200+ hours of content to get through before I should even think about buying something new.
    ……
    But it’s so pretty! And I hear it’s awesome!! And it has giant robots!! *sniff* I love giant robots.

    Thanx, but I’ll rather wait for the King of Consoles, the Xbox Scorpio!♏♏♏

      lol, Microsoft is going to botch it, they always screw up their own launches. It’s going to be fun to watch it though.

      TV, TV, TV, MOAR POWER, TV, TV, NETFLIX, 4k, Water Coolah, sports, TV, TV, NO EXLUSIVES BUT YOU CAN PLAY GEARS OF WAR ONE REMASTERED FOR THE SCORPIO ONE ON SCORPIO ONE, TV, TV, TV, MOAR POWER, SPORTS, HALO ONE REMASTERED FOR SCORPIO ON!!!

        Hehehe, you’re going to have a very bad E3/next couple of years by clinging to those pre conceived ideas! The undisputed king of consoles just got more powerful even before launch! Developers are flocking to it because they asked for it and nothing, NOTHING you or any other self publishing “jounalist”/fanboy can say can stop it! You can try and try shooting it down about how it might look, be priced, “no games” etc. etc . but personally I just want to play the best games and the definitive/best/true 4K/highest FPS/maxed out versions of those games on the Xbox Scorpio. Games like:

        Battlefront 2
        RDR2
        Crackdown 3
        FIFA 18
        Sea Of Thieves
        Far Cry 2
        NFS Payback
        Assasins Creed Origin
        Gears Of War 4
        Elder Scrolls Online
        Shadow Of War
        Dirt 4
        Halo 5
        Project Cars 2
        Borderlands 3
        Killer Instinct
        Halo Wars 2
        Forza Horizon 3
        Tekken 7
        Black Desert Online
        Forza 7
        State Of Decay 2
        COD WW2
        Vampyr
        Battlefield 1
        Destiny 2
        Quantum Break etc. etc.
