UK Deal Roundup for December 6th, 2011

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
This week sees the end of most of the sales at the supermarkets, so they drop back off the list. Play and Tesco are taking into account that we are approaching the end of 2011 now. GAME has started a BOGOF sale on PC games. Play, Shopto, TheHut and Zavvi all have decent weekly offerings too.

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, GAME has started a Buy One Get One Free offer on PC games. There are a couple of Games for Windows LIVE titles involved, which although they can be bought individually at a cheaper price elsewhere, I feel it is worth paying a little extra to get a free game. Age of Empires Online (PC) is £14.99 and Operation Flashpoint: Red River (PC) is £8.99.’s Deals of the week see Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (Xbox 360) Classics for £8.99.
