Thanks to a new coupon at Amazon US you can now get Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for just $30 on console.

It doesn’t really take a great deal of effort to apply the coupon – all you have to do in tick the tiny checkbox on the game’s store page and you’ll save $10 off the already discounted price of $49.99. I’m really not sure what the point of adding that extra step is but, hey, we’ll take the saving all the same!

Elsewhere, Amazon’s 3-for-2 offer across games, movies, books and more is still live. Some of the console games you can pick up in that include Dragonball Z: Kakarot, Death Stranding and Monster Hunter: Iceborne.

Doom Eternal wouldn’t be the same game without it being delayed, according to executive producer Marty Stratton.

Speaking to VG247, Stratton explained that the team at id Software were working long hours in the lead up to the delay, and that pushing Doom Eternal back has let the team get the game up to the level of quality they feel their effort deserves.

“I say it’s the best game we’ve ever made. I don’t think I’d say that if we didn’t have that extra time,” Stratton said.
