Metal Gear Solid V 5 The Phantom Pain PS4 PlayStation 4 1

December's finally arrived which means that we can no longer complain when we see garish Christmas lights attached to the front of someone's semi-detached. To celebrate the season, SCEE's rolled out its customary '12 Deals of Christmas' campaign, which sees new offers introduced every 48 hours in the run up to 25th December.

Kicking things off is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which is half-price on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. To be fair, the offer's a good'un: the game will cost you £29.99 on Sony's new-gen system and £19.99 on its old one. Yes, it can be purchased for a lower price in shops – but not by a whole lot.

The platform holder's also running a 'Games Under £12' promotion through until 24th December, which spans dozens of PlayStation 3 and Vita titles. We'll leave you to peruse the full list, but standouts include savings on every Ratchet & Clank release, as well as reductions to cult hits like Gravity Rush and Puppeteer.
