Great deal. Heat! However, I'm not going to lie it's a very below average game. Got it for £3 brand new with a DLC code a few months ago and I've barely touched it. I find it a chore to play and compared to Overwatch it's really bad. Maybe if I didn't have Overwatch I'd enjoy it more? Who knows. Still a great deal for £2 though and the inclusion of a single/ multiplayer campaign is a plus.
Preowned looks to be £5.72 and the code seems to be invalid too.

Same price at Granger Games last week, it's gone up brand new but £11.99 pre-owned http://www.graingergames.co.uk/gears-of-war-4


I hate being that guy but Grainger games don't tend to deliver things new and sealed. Also like i said in the OP this is for those who don't want a preowned copy and I already knew about the deal from Grainger games since I posted it in a separate thread.


Sorry I should have said, it was the in-store deal last week brand new, so no delivery I think. Heat added either way good price

The deals are getting insane! oO I am starting to regret buying one at the start. They just keep getting better and better.

I was ready to bite on Black Friday, but wasn't impressed with any of the deals.

The question is do I hold out longer for better deals?

£240 for a 1TB with 4 games or 1 extra controller and 3 games is very tempting.

If you can spend more on a good headset. You don't want to be that person people avoid on TS or party chat because your mic sounds bad. That aside it's very cheap so heat from me.
Went to the store mentioned in the OP as it is local. This was placed above the wrong price tag and was scanning at tills at £14.99. Spoke to the store manager and they put it through the tills for us at £3.99 (see image in link) Thanks OP!

So, Sun or Moon, what do you recommend folk's?


​They're basically the same and this gen they seem to be letting you catch 2 of every game unique legendary so you can trade for the other.

So I'd just flip a coin.
Ordered Wildlands earlier, enjoyed the beta even though the vehicle controls were a bit meh. :)

THQNordic, the same ones who did not manage to fix online issue in PS3 Darksiders game:(
This was pretty fun on the DS but it was far too easy (especially when you learnt the AI behaviour). Hoping they've worked more on making it a challenge for this version as it was a neat twist on Tower Defence games.

Always found Base very efficient too, gets my vote! X)
I always found them to be easily convinced. A good gesture. (_;)

Is this any different from the old ds game? Looks pretty similar.
This is a remaster with new features. The differences are as below:

- New progression system automatically unlocks new turrets at specific story plot points.
- Brand new Antonia Defense Battles featuring a new map.
- All music remastered in high definition, with orchestrated introduction and ending.
- Player controls remapped for keyboard/mouse and gamepad input.
- Revamped User Interface, customized for HD resolution, including all new GUI Art.
- Character portraits refactored in High Resolution.

At what price will the Xbox One S be worth it just for the UHD player alone?
I think that even the standard Xbox One price over £200 is cheaper than most of the stand-alone players, so at £180 its a relative bargain.
The only thing, I read that the XB1 didn't support Dolby Atmos or DTS:X audio formats. Apparently support was or will be added in an update. For general consumer, the XB1 is probably still a good entry point for UHD.
Ignorant tech question: will the Xbox One S support an external hard drive which holds 4kHD videos on it? (if yes, are there file formats it wont support?)

I think the kids prefer Xbox as you can get them roblox etx but no doubt ps4 is a better console. I got one with Horizon in the recent argos deal. Just went out and bought last of us remastered, uncharted 4 and Infamous second son

Agreed my sons console of choice depend on what his friends have and Xbox One is way ahead of PS4 in his eyes.

Personally a massive fan of this game! There are some connectivity issues due to peer to peer connections online but I haven't noticed too bad, the completely new battle system along with the variety between fighters makes for a top game. First game i've paid full price at release for in years after the beta and i've not been disappointed

Thanks, couldn't resist getting Bioshock Collection.

I'm trying not to be drawn into the fanboy flames, but one huge advantage of Xbox is game sharing. That makes it the equivalent of £11.25 for 3 great games & the rather interesting development museum. I'm generally sniffy about remasters but at £3.75 each who could complain?

Exactly, you get exclusive games at great prices. How many exclusives are on sale on Xbox side? oO
Marvel ultimate alliance is a good shout to me. I loved those games and the price at launch was clearly not worth it as they apparently did nothing to them but ported them over. But for that price i can jump in on them.

My dashboard on Xbox is offering the 'exclusive discount' but when I click through it takes me on to the usual renewal page and wants to charge me 39.99. I didn't have a payment method on my account before but I have just added my paypal details but it has made no difference. I previously renewed by a prepaid card but the offer is there so I don't understand why it is not working. Has anyone got any suggestions? Thanks
Full price £39.99 on my dashboard, PC, tablet and phone. Been trying all of them multiple times in the hope Microsoft offer me my first ever discount. Only about a week before my gold runs out.

Why does everyone get it for £26 except me! Still showing £39.99 for me :(
You have to click on buy and get to the credit card page after logging in, then the price changes. Just make sure it changes before you click 'confirm', that's when the money goes out of your account.
Nah, just unlucky :(http://i65.tinypic.com/zsmtk5.png
Same for me :S - Is it because my current live was a pre-paid code and not direct from Microsoft site? Was yours the same?
Yes mine's prepaid too!
Full price on both of my kids' accounts, both through the dashboard and via the website.
Both accounts have a current pre-paid subscription.

Thanks for the info OP. Voted Hot.
I managed to get one purchase in. For some reason I couldn't stack a second purchase on even though my subscription runs out in June 2019.
You can only stack 3 years I think so you're just above that (you'd be at 3 years and 3 months :p )

Thank you for the clarification :)

good price (esp as MWR is included)
£25 + on ebay

As already stated, well kinda, MWR is a download, but a code isn't required. The download is triggered by the disk and the disk is required to play the game.
The download will be 45gb+ so if you have a slow internet connection, you might have a wait.

61gb downloaded it last night
Great price wouldn't of got it other than the remastered game thanks op
OOS, missed it.
Just utter rubbish. You'd think the solo campaign would do it justice but it doesn't. As for multiplayer, the characters have no personality and all pretty much look the same. Black ops 3 much better online. I resold this game and reinstalled black ops 3

I keep thinking I'll buy Fallout 4 but always feel that there's an ultimate edition right around the corner. There were "complete" editions of New Vegas and 3, but no sign of one for 4 yet with all the DLC.
I guess at £6.83 it's not throwing away too much money even if an ultimate edition did come out!
The season pass keeps getting cheaper with each sale, so there's that option too!

Good price for the unit with division (£144). If the game isn't included, amazon will likely refund 20% as happened in my case when I bought an xbox last year (game cost was only about £8 at the time so a £30 refund was unexpected).
All gone at that price

Very nice! I knew that it would drop from the £20 at which I bought the game (new), but perhaps not quite this quickly.

On a related point, would anyone happen to have a 10% discount code from a recent purchase that I might be able to use (for a different item)? All being well, I ought to get a code myself that I could send straight back.

It's tough to deny the appeal of Microsoft's Xbox One console. With the exception of its minimalist, back-to-basics design and speedier game performance, you can look forward to the same features that made the earlier Xbox 360 such a hit. This in-depth buyer's guide to Xbox One will examine how Microsoft strikes a balance between style and functionality with the Xbox One's simple exterior before taking a closer look at what's going on beneath the hood. For anyone making the tough choice between the Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4, we'll put the two giants shoulder to shoulder to show you that differences between the two are actually few and far between. Finally, you'll discover the pros and cons of the Xbox One in addition to cool features you may not have heard of and additional accessories to take your gaming experience to a whole new level. But before we get to all that, let's take a brief look at the history of the Xbox.

Xbox One buyers guide

The rise and rise of the Xbox

Microsoft made its mark as a formidable player in the video game world in 2001 with the launch of the original Xbox console. Up against Sony's eagerly-anticipated follow-up to their original PlayStation, Microsoft played their trump cards, superior graphics technology and exclusive, Xbox-only title, Halo: Combat Evolved, to steal market share away from Sony and start building its cult following. The demand for the Xbox was so massive, in fact, that Microsoft had no choice but to postpone its European release date to ship consoles to Japanese gaming enthusiasts.

Xbox One Halo Bundle

Microsoft has continued to bring awesome game play and entertainment to new generations of gamers with the release of the Xbox 360 in 2005. This next Xbox iteration gave users a way to access online games, download new demos, and stream media like music and videos; all through its Xbox Live service. Plus, any content saved to the removable hard drive could be played on a friend's console simply by swapping in the new drive. Xbox 360 gamers were also treated to wireless controllers, console colour choices, and new editions of its most popular title, Halo.

Xbox Kinect

Kinect, developed for the Xbox 360 and released in 2010, lets you control gameplay without the need for a traditional controller. Users interact with the game using body gestures and spoken instructions that are detected by Kinect's camera and microphone. Sitting inconspicuously next to your other media appliances on your TV stand, Kinect gets you off the couch and puts your dancing and sporting skills to the test like never before.

Despite Microsoft's expertise in computer technology, Xbox 360 gamers were often confronted by the dreaded red ring of death, making their console unplayable without hardware technical support. Fast forward to today, where you’ll see that the refined, more reliable Xbox One has put Microsoft's hardware failure problems behind them while delivering an eighth-generation gaming experience.

Microsoft Xbox One Specifications and Features

There are a number of factors that help explain the evolution of home game consoles to the current eighth generation, such as higher resolution, enhanced social tools, and greater all-round entertainment options - all thanks to improvements in interface design and gaming hardware. To better stress these advancements, here's a brief overview of the technical specs of the Xbox One:

  • Console design: Xbox One takes on a more streamlined design than its aesthetically-appealing predecessors, looking more like a standard black VCR unit than a highly-developed gaming rig. It also offers greater ventilation via two large top and side vents to prevent hardware faults caused by overheating.
  • Hardware: The Xbox One is equipped with a 500 GB, non-replaceable hard drive and a Blu-ray optical drive. Games are powered by two quad-core AMD processors (total 8 core AMD Jaguar Custom at 1.75 GHz) and a full 8 GB of DDR5 system memory.
  • Software: Two operating systems installed on the drive ensure one set of dedicated resources is allocated to a high performance gaming experience and one set to everything else like apps and navigating the user interface.
  • Controller: The wireless controller also looks cleaner than those shipped with the Xbox 360 and has a more ergonomic design, thanks to comfortable hand contours and minor location changes to the analogue sticks. It can be used on battery power or be plugged into the console using the micro USB charge cable when battery reserves are running low. The intelligent controller can also tell when you're not using it, correspondingly entering a low-power state to further conserve energy for longer game time.
  • Headset: The official Xbox One stereo headset offers clear voice capture with its unidirectional microphone and the detachable headset adapter lets you adjust audio settings effortlessly.
  • Kinect: Greater motion sensing and voice recognition is possible on the Xbox One. This is mainly due to the improved 1080p HD camera resolution and complemented by re-designs in the user interface.

Xbox One – Unboxing

Xbox One Bundles

To save game-lovers from buying expensive games and upgrades after the initial outlay in the console, Microsoft has introduced a number of bundles for the Xbox One. You’ll be able to grab the basic, 500 GB console along with a single wireless controller, and the game of your choice (from a specified list) at the lower end of the bundle package spectrum. Spring a little extra and you can get more games and double the storage. The games included are usually part of a series like the Rainbow Six Siege bundle that comes with two classic Rainbow Six Xbox 360 games and a new title for the Xbox One, for example.

Xbox One bundles

If you prefer first-person shooters in outer space to counter terrorism, there’s a limited edition Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians bundle. It comes with a snazzy metallic 1 TB console and wireless controller, custom-designed in a military style with unique Halo sound effects, Halo 5: Guardians as a full game download and several Halo-inspired extras and animations. All this adds to the deeply holistic Halo experience.

Xbox One Versus PlayStation 4

Just like the fight between the Xbox and PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 versus PlayStation 3, Xbox One directly competes with PlayStation 4 in the battle for sales in the influential Japanese, North American, and European markets. Unlike previous battles, however, the Xbox One was no match for the PS4, which reportedly sold twice as many consoles as Microsoft's latest offering over the same period since their launch. But as you can read from the Specifications and Features above, the Xbox One boasts impressive technical specs that are on par with the PlayStation 4.

Intrinsic values

Both consoles have comparable system memory, with the PS4 winning out slightly with their 8 GB GDDR5 against the Xbox One's 8 GB DDR5 – the G in this case highlighting the PS4's ability to handle faster graphical processing between the CPU and GPU. With 8 GB DDR5, Microsoft and Sony are over-delivering on available system memory since the latest 1080p games won't demand so much system RAM.

More time for gaming

As far as processing prowess is concerned, the Xbox One fares slightly better than the PS4. The 1.75 GHz AMD 8-core CPU versus the same CPU in the PS4 clocked at 1.6 GHz produces greater processing power but this doesn't necessarily transform into greater performance. Rather, the extra processing power of the PlayStation 4's 1.84 teraflop GPU built around AMD's Radeon technology outclasses the Xbox One's similar spec unit rated at 1.31 teraflops. With the added benefit of GDDR5 modules communicating with the GPU, Sony's PlayStation 4 can render graphics faster and deal with complicated in-game features like shadows and shrubbery. In a number of tests performed by tech review sites and next-gen gaming enthusiasts, the PS4 appears to offer greater image clarity, noticeable only in a side-by-side image snapshot comparison of games.

The games

Speaking of games, the imbalance in total sales between the two consoles could be linked to the variety of games available on the PS4 compared to Xbox One, particularly those created by independent game developers without the backing of an official publisher. This is the clearest example where the PlayStation 4 holds a clear advantage over the Xbox One, since the former has proactively supported self-published games since the console’s launch and Microsoft has been slow to introduce their own developer kit.

Xbox One vs. PS4 storage and connectivity

In the data storage stakes, both consoles come equipped with 500 GB of internal storage as standard, with Sony letting its users replace the hard drive without voiding the warranty. Due to user feedback, however, you can now add extra external storage to the Xbox One as long as the drive is at least 256 GB and compatible with SuperSpeed USB 3.0.

As far as internet options go, both consoles feature gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity and support 802.11 b/g/n, with the Xbox also supporting the older generation 802.11a band. If you're wondering why Wi-Fi connectivity is important, it is used to stream and play games from a Windows 10 PC. Using different bands can reduce interference issues, while allowing better video and audio quality more akin to streaming over a wired network.

Although you're not likely to be carrying your console around with you, the Xbox One weighs a hefty 3.56 kg, falling short of the PS4 at a slimmer 2.75 kg. The PS4 is smaller than the Xbox One (10.8" x 12" x 2" versus 13.5" x 10.4" x 3.2") and offers less connectivity options; focussing more on game performance than extra features. The Xbox One, on the other hand, sports a healthy collection of ports, including an Xbox One Kinect port, an Ethernet port, an IR blaster connection, HDMI in and HDMI out, S/PDIF for digital audio and two USB ports.

Xbox One Elite

In their attempt to recapture top spot from their rivals, Microsoft worked tirelessly on the Xbox One Elite. No apparent difference can be seen in the console's exterior, but the biggest upgrades include the drop-in replacement of the 500 GB HDD to a potent 1 TB SSD hybrid drive and an advanced Xbox One Elite wireless controller. Apart from double the storage space of the standard Xbox One, combining a traditional drive for storing games and other data with solid state technology for frequently accessed files translates into a very noticeable 20 % boost in game load time, according to tests performed by Microsoft.

Xbox One Elite

The new Xbox One Elite wireless controller gives you customisable design choices like swappable analogue sticks, new D-pads, back pedals, and joystick sensitivity. As a result, the Xbox One Elite wireless controller could be a great solution if you have challenges with finger dexterity and find the standard controller too bothersome to operate.

Weighing the pros and cons of the Xbox One

Despite lagging sales, the Xbox One is still a cutting edge console to rival the PS4. Let's briefly outline the pros of owning one:

  • Games: Xbox and Xbox 360 games are locked to each region they are sold in. The Xbox One doesn't hold gamers to this restriction. This means you can bring and run your game discs on holiday and play on any Xbox One unit overseas. Note that this does not include digital content or games from China.
  • Reliability: This is a big one. Too many support tickets raised on the Xbox 360 meant that Microsoft had to fix issues with overheating, which they have done with a better cooling system and increased ventilation for non-stop game play.
  • Bundled accessories: All Xbox Ones come bundled with a Kinect sensor, a headset for chatting online, and an HDMI cable for advanced picture quality.

Xbox One: Headset

  • Health: With a more accurate motion sensor, Kinect on the Xbox One can monitor your heart rate and make sure that you're working out at the right pace during cardio sessions.
  • Apps: Microsoft offers the greatest selection of apps in the games console world, including YouTube and Netflix. Up to four apps can be running at the same time, for true multi-tasking.

It's not all good news, though. Sadly, the Xbox One still fails to deliver in the following areas:

  • Backwards compatibility: Xbox and Xbox 360 games are not universally backwards compatible with the Xbox One, although Microsoft may address this in the future. But the PS4 isn´t backwards compatible as well.
  • Always-on internet: Microsoft originally told users to have a constant internet connection to use the console. Now no longer the case, after a colossal backlash from angry users, you still need to enter offline mode and download games to the HDD to play offline.
  • Design: The advantage of its sleek, ventilated design means it won't overheat and fail. The downside to this reliable design is that it can't be placed on its side and save space on your desk or TV cabinet.
  • Expensive membership: In order to get involved in multi-player games and join in with players around the world, you need an Xbox Live Gold account, which comes with a hefty annual price tag.

Streaming services on Xbox One

Cool Features of the Xbox One

Whenever Kinect is connected to the console, it remains alert and ready for any vocal command you give it. Simply say "Xbox" followed by one of over fifty voice commands to control functions on the Xbox One. For example, if you say the words "Xbox watch TV", the Xbox One will respond by entering TV mode through your TV set-top box. If you add the channel name to the command, it will automatically turn to that channel - no more hunting for the remote down the back of the sofa! Other commands include volume control, music playback, internet browsing, launching apps, and power on/off options.

Personalisation options on the Xbox One interface mean you can tailor your home screen to display your favourite apps, games, TV shows, and music tracks. But it's not restricted to one user. Anyone who signs in can configure their own personal interface with the aforementioned options as well as changing the Xbox One dashboard background with a custom image, a saved screenshot, or even showcasing one of your in-game achievements. If tiles are getting in your way, you can also adjust the transparency levels to allow the background image to show through.

10 more reasons why you could love the Xbox One

Available Accessories

Any good games console will provide a wide range of accessories to enhance your gaming experience. For music lovers, the Xbox One supports wireless guitar, microphone, and drum kit controllers while the Xbox sound bar channels audio around your room without the need for several wall-mounted speakers.

Wall mounts are available, though, if you want to place your Kinect sensor in a more dance friendly spot on your wall above or below your flat screen TV. The other benefit to this is that you'll be able to move more freely, rather than trying to aim your movements directly at your console located on your TV cabinet.

Rev heads can simulate the driving experience with steering wheels, gear stick, and foot pedals, while driving chairs bond these three functions together in a drive-friendly chair. This is perfect for running countless laps and taking sharp turns on top racing titles, like Forza Motorsport 6.

If the bundled Xbox One headset isn't up to your usual high standards, fans of online multi-player games can communicate better with team mates and opponents during campaigns with the advanced noise cancelling and chat control features built into high-tech wired and wireless headphones.

Where to get an Xbox One

Opting for the Xbox One will come down to a few essential criteria. It has plenty to offer for the casual gamer seeking a modern, all in one game and entertainment package thanks to its interactivity with both TV sets and Windows computers as well as the bundled Kinect unit. Hard core game fans will appreciate the next-gen graphics and improved reliability over the Xbox 360. For an extra investment, the Xbox One Elite offers speedier game load times, while the wireless controller is worth considering if you need to take pressure off uncomfortable hand and finger placements.

eBay and Amazon are just two of the big merchants selling the Xbox One online, usually offering good discounts on starter packs, as well as unique bundle packs during Christmas time and Black Friday. Many high street stores like Toys R Us and Argos are also giving customers the chance to grab a bargain, often selling the console cheaper on the internet than in store.

HotUKDeals keeps track of all deals on the Xbox One on its dedicated tag page, not just during these special holiday periods, but is continuously updated all the time.
