UK Deal Roundup for August 28th, 2012

By Keith Gray, 4 years ago
I've changed my gamertag since the most recent Deal Roundup last Tuesday, but there's no such luck with the UK gaming deals. Things are still very slow! Don't despair though, we're edging closer to the all-important Autumn release period.

Shopto can be trusted to bring yet another new promotion this week, inspired by the August bank holiday. Among the other retailers, only Zavvi and TheHut offer up significant new, albeit somewhat identical, promotions.

The recurring sales remain largely unchanged.

You'll need to click on the name of the retailer or the name of the deal to be taken straight to the retailer’s offer page. Clicking on the name of a game will take you to the achievement list. All prices were correct at the time of writing and subject to change at the retailer's discretion.

New Sales:

Game has started an Online Exclusive Clearance. You can boogie your way to a nice TA score in for just £9.99.

Shopto has a good mix of Xbox 360 and PC titles available in their new Bank Holiday Blowout promotion. - £12.85
Operation Flashpoint: Red River (PC) - £4.85 - £18.85 - £17.86 (Complete Edition) - £14.86 - £24.85 - £21.85 - £12.85

Tesco has began a new campaign on Disney games. Unfortunately, at £14.96 is the only reasonably priced title.

Much like Shopto, TheHut has began a Bank Holiday Bargains promotion. - £24.95 - £9.95 - £14.95 (Enter code KG10 for a further 10% discount) - £34.95 - £9.95

Zavvi has started a new Games from £12.95 promotion. You could simply disregard the promotion heading though, because the prices vary so much.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Classics) - £14.95 - £11.95 - £12.95 - £14.95
Those are just a few of the plethora of games available and most of the deals in this promotion are being matched by sister store, TheHut. Unfortunately, there's no specific sale highlighted there, so you'll have to use TheHut's search function to find titles.
