UK Deal Roundup for March 20th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
We have a few new sales this week. Play starts the first of the Spring sales while continuing another sale that should have ended ten days ago. Zavvi also restarts one of their old favourites and begins an offer on pre-order games. Shopto starts a new offer that I’m assuming is supposed to replace the Weekly Specials and the Star Buys. As for weekly offers, Play, TheHut and Zavvi have some notable offerings.

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. All prices were correct at the time of writing.

To start off the new sales of the week, Play has begun a Spring Sale. As well as the normal list, there is a list of games where these special prices end at midnight Tuesday. These are the best bargains:
