UK Deal Roundup for October 30th, 2012

By Keith Gray, 4 years ago
This week is very light on new deals! Amazon seems keen to keep everyone playing online together. GameStop has done a bit of price dropping with last week's featured console bundle available for even less. Meanwhile, it looks like Need for Speed will be the feeling gamers will be wanting the most!

The lack of new deals this week is compensated by the fact that most of last week's brand-new promotions have quickly become recurring sale.

All prices are correct at the time of writing, and subject to change at any time at the retailer's discretion.

New Sales

Amazon still offers the best price for a 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold subscription but, unlike last week, don't expect any change from £30.

GameStop's Xbox 360 Slim 4GB console and FIFA 13 bundle returns this week, but with a nice twist! It's been reduced by a further £10. You can pick up the console alone for £119.97, or add the game into the bargain and pay £139.94.

Many retailers are advertising 'Buy FIFA 13, get a discount off Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)' offers. ShopTo and Zavvi match each other with the best pricing on the promotion. Each retailer provides instructions on their respective pages to explain how to redeem the discount. At the current prices, you'll effectively get both games for a combined price of £66.70, regardless of which retailer you choose to purchase from.
