ALDI is the god of offering cheap shit you don't actually need and its upcoming sale has you well and truly covered. This time around, it's got gaming gear on sale from PCs and monitors to mouses.
The sale will start from October 19 and any regular ALDI go-er will know all the best deals sell out very fast and given it's a Saturday, it's likely going to be an absolute fight. Who said battle royales are dead? They're well and truly alive during a Saturday morning ALDI store opening.
Last year, ALDI dropped a nice surprise in one of their weekly catalogues. Instead of bargain bin Xbox 360's or a Bauhn-branded TV, the no-frills grocer was selling flatpack Gauntlet and Street Fighter cabinets.
The maker of those was Arcade1Up. Unsurprisingly, they're expanding their line in 2019 with five more cabinets ranging from Mortal Kombat games to Final Fight and Karate Champ.
