A note from the editor: is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.

Cast your minds back, if you will, to December last year. All that time ago, The Last Guardian finally saw a release after a decade of being in production. Finally, the world could play the latest game from the creators of legendary PS2 games Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Our very own , too.

Then just a couple short weeks after release, it was discounted massively down to £25 from its original £50 RRP. You may have spotted our article about that at the time and grabbed a copy and honestly, who could blame you for it? Given that it was Christmas, though, many people missed out on the eye-catching price cut. If you’re one of those people, you’ve been given a second chance today, since ShopTo has reduced the price of The Last Guardian once again, this time , which is the lowest the game has ever been priced at in the UK.

Resident Evil 7 has third-best week one sales of the series

Resident Evil 7 is off to a solid sales start in the UK, hitting top spot in this week’s chart.

The horror game is the third-best week one debut for the Resident Evil series in the UK. The week one record is held by Resident Evil 5, which launched on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2009. Resident Evil 7 launched on PC, PS4 and Xbox One (the PS4 version works with PSVR).

For some reason, UK numbers company Chart-Track failed to mention the second-best week one debut for Resident Evil. Presumably it’s 2012’s Resident Evil 6.
