With 2015 being arguably one of the biggest in gaming, we decided that there was no better time than now to start bringing you a bargain guide for the biggest games of the holiday season to ensure that you can fit as many games into your lineup as possible.

The best deal will always be at the top running down through local retailers and finishing off with online only deals, always remember to price match the lowest price if buying from EB Games!

  • Dangan Ronpa for me!

      I’m still working my way through the first 2 games >_< Really happy to see them still being released at retail here, Vita means life!

  • don’t buy Rugby, that’s the worst game on PS4.

    • reptilescorpio

      It’s that bad? It’s by the same dev that did the Don Bradman game which was excellent. I heard the World Cup 2015 game by HB studios wasn’t great though. There’s also a THIRD Rugby game out this year called Rugby Challenge 3. So many Rugby games this year for some reason!

  • Waiting on your review first, well that and the PC version.

    • reptilescorpio

      Currently no ETA on the PC version at all, I’ll update once Tru Blu (or more likely Big Ant) release the information.
