Welcome to the weekend. Whether you’re working today or on holiday, we’ve got a range of deals that might interest you. Most of these were big hits during the week, which we’re re-displaying for your perusal, though we’ve included a few deals that popped up recently. In terms of what to expect On the edge, this week will be Samsung’s Unpacked event. It’s all happening on Wednesday, August 10, and based on rumors we’re expecting to see new foldable phones and other gadgets, as well as plenty of pre-order offers. I’ll see you then.

IN Epic Games Store on PCyou can play so much Far Cry 6 as you can fit in this weekend. The showcase offers an extended free trial of Ubisoft’s latest open-world first-person shooter. Deals on Far Cry 6 aren’t too uncommon these days (although the PC version has less discounts than the console versions), and yet it’s really hard to beat the current price: $0.00. The trial version of the game is also available for Xbox and Game console gamers. You do not need any PlayStation subscription to access the free trial. On Xbox, however, you’ll need Xbox Live Gold (or the modern equivalent, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate).

We usually like to provide context around the deals we’re promoting so you can make an informed purchase. This is not so necessary for a free service. It is worth noting that Far Cry 6 delivers more of the same great sense of combat and exploration. In Diego Arguello’s analysis of the game’s history, Far Cry 6 is one of the few AAA games set in Latin America, though its narrative and handling of cultural portraits are hit or miss. If you can look past that, it might be a good use of your free time this weekend.


Far Cry 6

Far Cry 6 puts you in the Cuban-inspired locale of Yara. It’s the latest in Ubisoft’s open-world first-person shooter franchise.

If you’re planning to go on vacation this summer or just want to lounge around the house with some books, the latest Kindle Paperwhite could be the perfect gadget to add to your repertoire. This model is $45 off at Best Buy, it costs $94.99 until Saturday night. This is pretty much the lowest price we’ve seen the 2021 Kindle Paperwhite sell for.

As for why this is the e-reader to buy over the previous generation, it has USB-C charging, a larger 6.8-inch backlit display, and customizable screen color temperature. It shares waterproofing with the last generation Paperwhite. Read our review.

Beats Fit Pro and Studio Buds are back to their Prime Day prices. Starting with the Fit Pro, these wireless buds with wing tips to stay in your ears during runs and other workouts return to $179.99 ($20 off) at Amazon. Besides being great workout companions, they have Active Noise Canceling (ANC), a transparency mode that lets you stay in touch with the sounds going on around you, and can last up to six hours on a single charge with ANC.

Studio Buds are $99.99 ($50 off at Amazon) and similarly offer ANC and transparency mode. Apple claims you’ll get up to eight hours of listening time on a single charge without ANC on. My colleague Chris Welch said in his review that the ANC was worse on the Studio Buds than on the Fit Pro. Both the Fit Pro and Studio Buds include a charging case with a USB-C port, though it’s important to note that neither option supports wireless charging. Read our review.
