Having fun in a video game these days doesn’t simply stop after your initial purchase. This is because, unlike in the past, most modern titles (normally with a strong online component) give you the option to enhance the fun through the use of purchasable add-ons and in-game currency. Xbox, PlayStation and even Nintendo Switch systems all allow you to access such extra and cosmetic goods by purchasing digital currency cards, which when redeemed will synch up with your relevant account and unlock the desired items.
Some of the most popular games around like FIFA, Call of Duty and Apex Legends all offer optional ways to expand your experience in this way, and we at Gaming Deals want to ensure you receive the best price when doing so. That’s why, much like we do with games, consoles and accessories, our bespoke tech compares the price for each platform’s relevant currency, subscriptions and add-ons as sold by UK retailers from around the web, listing each digital card for the lowest offer.
Sometimes engaging with a game’s digital store is the only way to stay competitive with your friends. In FIFA Ultimate Team, for example, digital currency cards allow you to unlock in-game player packs that can then be added to your personal team. It’s then where you can create and manage your own squad while earning rewards, both in online and offline matches. We always recommend researching how each game’s online component operates.
Don’t want to link your bank account directly to the Nintendo, PlayStation or Xbox online stores? Opting to add currency to your online profile is a sure-fire way to defend yourself against any potential fraud. Plus, if you’re a parent worried that the younger player in your household might cause chaos with an account linked to your credit card, digital currency cards always have a set limit.
