The Hype: Horizon Zero Dawn

Introducing my new category, The Hype. This will be about newly released games that I probably won’t have played, but through word of mouth and reviews would either have their hype justified or not. A verdict of “The Hype is Real” means it’s justified, while “The Hype is Not” means it’s probably No Man’s Sky or Iron Fist. Look, I’m still salty about Iron Fist.

Happy July 15 2015!

Also affectionately known as, the day that Sony & Amazon almost convinced me to spend rent money on a PS4 1TB bundle. To those who are unaware, the PS4 Ultimate Player Edition was released today. It was supposed to retail at £349, buta few retailers have been offering bundle deals left right and centre. Amazon kicked it off with their Prime Day deal – PS4 1TB with Destiny, PS TV, 3 months PS+ and a digital copy of Ultra Street Fighter. Now, I was not ready for this crazy when I picked up my Metro at the train station at 6am. I almost tried Amazon’s free Prime trial on the spot, but I am [barely] made of stronger stuff. This deal is still available until 23:59 tonight. You must be an Amazon Prime member.

GAME came out to play with their bundles:

PS4 1TB with PS TV & Destiny; PS4 1TB with PS TV & Watch Dogs; PS4 1TB & PS TV. Each were £329.99. Oddly enough, they’re selling the PS4 1TB for £339.99.

Oddly enough, Tesco, ASDA, Sainsbury’s & Morrisons aren’t running any deals, so I expect some sort of heart attack style deals as we head closer to the Christmas period.

Of course, if you’re a real penny saver, you’ll have discovered at least two PS4 1TB deals under £300 thanks to a good exchange rate and free UK delivery from other European retailers. **coughs** hotukdeals.com **coughs**

Confession: If the Amazon deal was bundled with The Witcher 3 instead of Destiny, my fingers would have run amok, I would have woken up on my own private island and everything…then I would have found some garri & groundnut…
