By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Now seems to be the season for redesigning websites. has now finished its redesign, and they have started several sales to celebrate this fact. Gamestation also starts a new sale after its redesign, but for unknown reasons GAME doesn’t follow suit. Shopto, TheHut, Tesco and Zavvi all serve up some weekly offerings.
