UK Deal Roundup for July 26th, 2011

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Before we get into the usual nitty-gritty, I have some bad news. Unfortunately, I'm away on holiday over the next two weeks, so it won't be me bringing the UK deals to you. We will be posting the articles as usual on August 2nd and August 9th, but they will not go into quite so much detail, and you may have to do a bit of legwork yourselves to make full use of the information. Normal service will resume on August 16th.

As usual you 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. Further details on the deals, including the best pick of the sale items, can be found in the ‘details here’ link, which will take you back to the relevant UK deal roundup that described the sale in more detail. Clicking on the name of a game will take you to the achievement list.

To start off the new sales of the week, Amazon are holding a Disney Summer Sale. Although only two Xbox 360 titles are included in the list, the retailer currently has the cheapest price for Tron: Evolution at £11.65. is a new addition to our retailers this week, and they start off with a list of Special Offers:
