A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next.

If you were a fan of the 1979 Alien movie, this week pre-ordering Alien Isolation just became more compelling. Yesterday pre-orders were dubbed the “Nostromo Edition”, meaning Creative Assembly added a bonus DLC pack allowing you to play Ellen Ripley and other characters from the original film. In an attempt to ride the hype, the UK-based digital retailer Green Man Gaming launched a 25% off coupon code for the PC Download version. That takes a solid $12.50 off the $50 list price, dropping it to only $37.50 – not bad.

Also notable at GMG is a sizable 30% coupon for recent releases. Titles like Valiant Hearts: The Great War, Dark Souls II, and Spintires can all take advantage of the discount. The coupon works worldwide.

Lastly, you’ll find a 10% discount on brand new PS4 and Xbox One consoles this week. Just last month, Microsoft released the Kinectless “Standard Edition” console with a reduced price tag of $399.99 vs. the usual $499.99. Better yet, on eBay Deals you’ll find the console dropped to $359.99 with free shipping in the US and no sales tax charged except for orders shipped to New York. It’s a similar story with the PlayStation 4, also priced at $359.99, free ship on eBay Deals.
