UK Deal Roundup for November 27th, 2012

By Keith Gray, 4 years ago
After the bundle of deals last week and the Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers since then, you would be forgiven for thinking that the deals would suffer a burn out this time around.

In contrast, Amazon continues to evolve its Special Offers, whilst Zavvi maintains its habit of bringing the most promotions. Tesco has some nice deals that are only available for a short period. Blockbuster returns to the fray. GAME, GamesCentre and Shopto all make healthy contributions as well.

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

New Sales

Amazon's Special Offers have changed yet again this week. The under £10 category includes Kinect Nat Geo TV at £9.99, Men In Black: Alien Crisis is £7.99 and Homefront: Ultimate Edition (Classics) is only £6.63.

There's no worthwhile deals on games in the £10 to £20 section this week. However, 2100 Microsoft Points at £16.87 and an Official Play & Charge Kit (Black) for £14.99 are a couple of the deals within the £10 to £20 accessories section this week to make up for the lack of games.

The lack of games in the above section is a little disappointing, but if you have a bigger budget then you'll be laughing. Falling into the £20 to £30 category is F1 2012 at £27 and Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for £24.99.

Amazon has the latest Call of Duty iteration, Call of Duty: Black Ops II priced at £35. This deal is also matched by Tesco in a new promotion detailed later in this article.

Blockbuster has Bulletstorm for £7.98 and Red Faction: Armageddon for the same price.

GAME has Dishonored on a half price deal at the moment. The retailer has an exclusive special edition version of the title, priced at £21.49.

GamesCentre's Special Offers include Kinect Sports at £13.49.

ShopTo's Gifts Under £10 promotion has Brink for £4.85, Halo 3: ODST (Classics) is £9.85 and Just Dance Kids for £7.85.

ShopTo has Darksiders II (Limited Edition) for £17.86.

Tesco's Cyber Deals include a Xbox 360 250GB Slim Console for £159. In addition, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is £35. Both of those deals are only available for a limited period only, so get them quickly!

Zavvi's Driving / Racing promotion has changed gear again. DiRT 3 (The Complete Edition) is £12.95. DiRT Showdown and Need for Speed: The Run are £9.95 each.

Zavvi's New Releases section has a single title on offer. LEGO The Lord of the Rings is £29.95.

Zavvi recommends a good number of titles at decent prices in its new promotion: - £12.95
TC's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier - £12.99 (matched by TheHut) - £9.95 - £9.95
Rise of Nightmares - £7.95
Sleeping Dogs - £14.99 (matched by TheHut)
Sonic Generations - £9.95 - £12.95 - £9.95
