Helping hand

Let’s face it: Sony’s big 12 Deals of Christmas initiative has been about as tasty as a plate full of Brussels sprouts. There have been some reasonable offers here and there, but nothing that’s going to set your trousers on fire – and this week is similar, even if there is a loophole that you may not actually be aware of.

Indeed, the platform holder doesn’t spell it out, but because Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare supports cross-buy, this latest discount is one of the better ones. Activision’s first-person shooter can be purchased for as low as £36.99 on the PlayStation 4 and £29.99 on the PlayStation 3. However, if you cough up for the latter, you’ll get both versions anyway, which is pretty cheap.

The other reduced release is Ys: Memories of Celceta, which has been chopped down to £11.99. Considering that the platform holder’s actually supported PlayStation Plus for this one, you can grab the title for under a tenner, which may be worth it if you’re after a rock solid role-playing game. Are you in or out? Let us know down below.
