Ubisoft is the GameStop of the PC gaming world. Gamers love to hate on it. That said they do have some of hot titles out, especially in the FPS world like Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege now on fire sale during the 2017 Summer Sales. Today GamersGate launched a new round of Ubisoft deals to compete with the Steam Summer Sale making R6 Siege and a ton of other titles at historic low prices.
Thanks the the price drops at GamersGate, it's never been cheaper to get into Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The R6 Siege Complete Edition is dropping to $54 in the Steam Summer sale, which was the previous historic low, but GamersGate is bettering the price with a drop tot $48.59. This saves you an extra $5.40 compared to any other previous price in the history of availability, and is 46% less than the usual $90 MSRP. The base game Rainbow Six Siege is also $21.59 at GamersGate while being $24 on Steam - a similar percentage price gap.

Watch Dogs 2 is another example of a hot deal in the GamersGate Summer Sale. Steam is currently charging $30 while GamersGate has it for $24.60. Another $5.40 in savings compared to the previous best price and under half the usual $60.
All the titles listed above are at their best prices online at GamersGate. They are all Uplay keys and expire on July 3, 2017.
Today June 16 the pay off for pre-ordering Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will commence as Square Enix unleashes Early Access for PC gamers. Those who have already purchased or who do so before the expansion pack officially becomes available next Tuesday, June 20 can get started on the journey to the new lands of the east. Not only that, two sets of pre-order deals are available at two different retailers with discounts up to 18% off for MogStation keys of FFXIV: Stormblood.
Both DLGamer and GMG are digital retailers hosting very similar discounts. The UK-based GMG is fully authorized and selling Stormblood keys to both North American and European customers alike at a 17% discount rate dropping the standard edition from $40 to $33.79. It's the same situation for the France-based DLGamer offering a slightly better 18% discount offer and seeing the standard edition go down to $32.99.
- Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Digital Collector's Edition - $49.79 at GMG (list $60)
- Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood - Digital Collector's Edition - $49.49 at DLGamer (list $60)
- Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood - $33.29 at GMG (list $40)
- Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood - $32.99 at DLGamer (list $40)
Both retailers are selling legit copies of MogStation keys (these work with non-Steam version of AAR). Be sure you are purchasing in the right region and we recommend you avoid using a VPN while purchasing. Final Fantasy XIV is a region-locked title and has different keys for North America and PAL/ROW regions. Keys sent to you will include the early access/pre-order bonus keys, which you can redeem here.
Now that there's a discount involved, is it worth bumping up to the Collector's Edition? Well, everyone is in a different situation. Cosmetically, there are extra options in the Collector's Edition and hardcore fans may appreciate the extra Syldra Mount, Wind-up Bartz Minion, and Chicken Knife. If you think you can snag your own flying mount then we'd suggest skipping out on the pricier Stormblood Collector's Edition.
If you got bit by the E3 hype bug, we'd highly suggest taking a step back and remind yourself that the show is designed to entertain and elicit an emotional response. Having said that, there are quite a number of exciting big titles heading our way later this year (no, it's not another Skyrim port). If you're one of those gamers preferring to play on Day One or near release date because you can't wait for a seasonal sale, the good news is that select retailers are offering pre-order incentives on upcoming titles to ride the hype train.
We're spotting deals on Middle-earth: Shadow of War at a huge 28% off, Total War: Warhammer II at 20% off, and even Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus at a decent 21% off discount. For PC gamers who may be used to bigger pre-order incentives, the new price trend we've spotted for the last few years is that retailers are hesitant to deeply discount an unreleased Triple-A given publisher pressure and other factors. So to see discounts as high as 28% off was a pleasant surprise.
All deals below come with their pre-order bonus unless not explicitly stated (the Origin titles do not appear to have pre-order bonuses). Prices that should hold true are Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Warhammer II, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole. For deals using the coupon code listed below, they will expire later this week on June 16 - so act fast if you're

November and TBA Releases
This weekend HP has fired up "Summer Savings" on select laptops and desktops with discounts up to $500 off. Not everything in the sale is a top notch discount, but we have found some bargain beauties among the group of mediocre "sales." Of note is the excellent value HP 15t Power Laptop that's a capable gaming laptop for only $600.
The top pick in HP's Summer Saving sale is the 15.6-inch HP Pavilion 15t Power Laptop for only $599.99. It's an insanely good price for a gaming capable laptop with a Quad Core i5 7th gen processor, GeForce GTX 1050 discrete video card, and a 1080p IPS display. Normally an $850 purchase but now $240 off. In our opinion, this is one of the cheapest gaming laptop you can pick up during Summer 2017 that can play modern titles at decent settings and priced well under $800.
Best of HP Summer Savings Sale
- HP Pavilion 15t Power Laptop, Core i5-7300HQ, GeForce GTX 1050, 1080p IPS, 6GB, 1TB HDD -- $599.99 (list $850)
- HP Pavilion 17t Power Laptop, Core i5-7300HQ, GeForce GTX 1050, 1080p IPS, 8GB, 1TB HDD -- $719.99(list $880)
- HP 14t Celeron N3060, 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMc -- $149.99 (list $240)
Joining the 15t is also its bigger brother 17t, with a very similar spec for $719.99. In lieu of the 15-inch display, you of course get a bigger chassis and a 17.3-inch screen. You'll also have 2GB more of RAM at 8GB vs the 15t's 6GB. It's power by the similar GeForce GTX 1050, which is currently the budget king in mobile PC gaming.
Finally, HP also has several laptop models in the 'dirt cheap' category. If you simply need a basic computing machine, The 14-inch HP 14t with a Celeron Processor for $150 is about as cheap as you'll find any laptop these days.
These deals are only valid through June 17, though it's possible there will be an extension of the sale as Summer continues. While the Pavilion Power Laptops are no't exactly a looker, as mentioned, we think the price-to-performance on these two laptops are some of the best available on the market today.
Codemasters DiRT 4 was suppose to go live on June 9th for PC - a few days behind Tuesday's PS4 and Xbox One console launch. So much for the slight delay as the game has gone live as of writing, which is a few hours ahead of schedule. At the exact same time, you can still pick up the game at GMG where you'll not only get the pre-order bonus but also a 22% off discount. Both of this offer may be gone later this week when we pass the official release date on Friday June 9.
PC is the lowest price you're going to find on DiRT 4, but surprisingly, Amazon has the console versions on sale as well. The Steam copy is 22% off with a drop to $46.79 while the Xbox One and PS4 copies are around $49 - or ~19% off which is about what you normally get if you're a Prime member (special 20% discount for select pre-order games).
- DiRT 4 (Steam) - $46.79 at GMG (list $60)
- DiRT 4 - Day One Edition (PS4) - $48.13 at Amazon (list $60)
- DiRT 4 - Day One Edition (Xbox One) - $49.72 at Amazon (list $60)
The PC discount at GMG is actually a "VIP price" that will require you to jump through a fairly minor hoop. Just login or create an account at the retailer to get the best 22% off price. You'll need to make an account at any other retailer you purchase from online, so you might as well go through the trouble and get the best price online for Codemasters' latest.
The discounts on Amazon are a curious thing, and actually started off lower this week with the PS4 version running at only about $40. Since then prices on the PS4 and Xbox One copies have risen to their current ~$49 levels and will likely continue to rise through the weekend due to Amazon's price robot. It's safe to say they'll be around for only a a limited time. If you're a DiRT series fan and you're planning to play on Day One, we suspect these are the best deals available for all platforms in the near future.
The first PC gaming Summer Sale of 2017 has arrived at GOG with over 1,500 PC games on sale with discounts up to 90% off. Not only that but you get a free $20 game after purchase making an impressive value. If the number of titles on sale seems intimidating we've round up the best of the bunch below.
Some of the best offers come from RPG titles. Dragon's Dogma was only recently added to the GOG DRM-Free catalog and is getting an introductory price from $30 to $11.99 - the best price online. Perhaps more notably in the RPG category is The Witcher III Game of the Year for $24.99 - or 50% off the usual $50. On the cheap side there's always the Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition hitting a new low at only $3.99.

Any purchase in GOG's sale, no matter how cheap you go, comes with a free copy of Rebel Galaxy. The title normally runs $20, making this a very strong incentive to pull the trigger on at least one title.
Of course just about all genre of games can be found in GOG's sale. Our top picks are games at or near their historic low price points.
GOG's sale will run for exactly two weeks. It began earlier today and will finish on Tuesday, June 20 at 5:59AM Pacific time.
This week Dell launched their Memorial Day Sale, and while the discounts on their Inspiron and XPS series are okay the real values we found after digging through are three configurations of the Dell's premium (re: pricey) Alienware Aurora gaming desktops. With price between $734 and $1,199, the included specs are surprisingly about what you could get if you build the system yourself.
The instant savings on all the Aurora's are impressive in the sale, but it's the stacking $50 off coupon code is the real extra kicker, making these machines some of the best Alienware gaming desktop values of 2017 (we admit its strange to have the word value next to an Alienware machine). Plug in the coupon code at checkout to get the best prices. These deals are valid now through May 29.
Update: The $50 off coupon no longer applies to the Alienware Aurora desktops, making all the deals below slightly worst off, though still competitively priced for an Alienware machine.
Use Code: 50OFF699
- Alienware Aurora Core i7-7700, GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, 2TB HDD, 16GB RAM - $1,249.99 (list $1,550)
- Alienware Aurora Core i5-7400, GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, 1TB HDD, 8GB RAM - $899.99 (list $1,100)
- Alienware Aurora R6 Core i5-7400, Radeon RX 560 2GB, 1TB HDD, 8GB RAM - $783.99 (list $800)
The most expensive Alienware Aurora with a Quad Core i7-7700, 16GB RAM, and a GTX 1070 is an impressive $350 off the usual $1,550 list price. That is the greatest dollar amount savings in the sale. Considering a similar spec'ed system with equal amount of RAM, hard drive, processor, case, power supply, and GTX 1070 would cost about $1,190 to build this system on your own (and you'll probably have to pay for an OS on top of that) we are actually seeing a reasonable price for an higher-end Alienware desktop.
The second tier Aurora deal with a GTX 1060 would be a good buy for someone in the market to game on strong settings without breaking the bank. It's an excellent value at $850, which is $250 cheaper than its usual $1,100 list price. To build a similar spec machine, we estimate parts will come in at about $930. Finally, for the $733 RX 560 - you should expect about $812 for a similar machine - so each tier has even more relative savings (though you do get quite a bit less in performance with the 2GB RX 560 compare to the 6GB GTX 1060.
For those not looking or have the time to build their own system, these Aurora machines are currently at market price in return for time savings on your own labor. In terms of pricing, they are also some of the best prices we've seen yet in 2017 for Alienware machines and as of writing, are our current top pick in Dell's 2017 Memorial Day sale.
If you've been holding off on buying a new laptop, waiting for a sale - this week may just be the right time to make the call. Two of the major laptop manufacturers are springing up Memorial Day sale pricing on their popular lineups. At Lenovo, you'll find their business-focused Thinkpad laptops on tap, including the latest generation of their flagship ThinkPad X1 Carbon. At HP, you'll find everything from their mainstream Envy machines to budget focused Pavilion, and the premium Omen laptops on sale.
For business and work laptops, the aforementioned ThinkPad X1 Carbon is at $1,175 - a new low price for the Spring 2017 released Kaby Lake powered ThinkPad X1. For this week, it's on sale for almost $300 off list price. Conversely at HP, the popular Envy x360 is on sale starting at $630 for the Core i5 model. Note that the high-end flagship Spectre X360 is only $100 off this week, so if you're looking for a deal on that particular model - we'll wait until the end of the week to see what HP brings as Memorial Day actually draws closer.
For gamers, our top pick in the budget-friendly category is the HP Pavilion 15t Power Laptop at only $650. This gets you a Quad Core i5 Kaby Lake, a fast GeForce GTX 1050, plus a 1080p Full HD IPS panel. That's as cheap as you can expect to play for a modern spec laptop that can handle all current games at respectable framerates. Coming in a close second is the Dell Inspiron 15 7567 Gaming Laptop, which comes with similar spec at similar price range.
If you prefer something a bit more premium, Lenovo's new Legion Y520 is also a good pick at $779, which comes with a Quad Core i5, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, 8GB of RAM all stuffed into the new slick and thin chassis of the Y520.

While it officially won't go live until June 6, PC gamers are getting early access to The Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind upgrade expansion starting Monday, May 22. Pre-load is live already for PC gamers, and if you're mulling over the purchase several retailers are offering discounts on the base Upgrade Edition as well as the Collector's Edition. We've round up the best deals out there on the new Morrowind Upgrade for PC.
The max savings on these sites are 18%, but that's still over $7 still in your wallet for the Standard Edition Morrowind Upgrade and nearly $11 for the Collector's Edition Upgrade. Three retailers are known to be shipping Morrowind keys right now for pre-load: Green Man Gaming, DLGamer, and GamersGate.
Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind Upgrade Deals
- Green Man Gaming - $32.79 (list price $40)
- GamersGate - $32.79 (list price $40)
- DLGamer - $33.49 (list price $40)
- Bundle Stars - $35.19 (list price $40)
Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind Collector's Edition Upgrade Deals
- GamersGate - $49.19 (list price $60)
- Green Man Gaming - $50.99 (list price $60)
- DLGamer - $50.99 (list price $60)
All the retailers listed above are authorized sellers of the game, so you're getting a discount and not going through a shady grey market source. The keys will work for non-Steam accounts and Steam accounts linked to ESO.
To get Early Access to The Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind, you will need to have already own a copy of The Elder Scrolls Online and purchase the upgrade separately. There are more expensive versions of the Morrowind expansion floating around the net which include the base game, but you will not get keys until the official June 6 release date. That's 2 weeks behind the upgrade editions head start.
Nothing jump starts a PC build more than a hot hardware discount, and today after a new eBay coupon code, several Intel Core i7 7th generation processors and AMD Ryzen 7 units are falling to new low price points.
