UK Deal Roundup for April 24th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
TheHut has started a decent sized sale this week, although the bargains listed below can probably be found in several of their other sales too. Shopto isn’t running a sale this week but instead has a section of Xbox 360 offers. I’ve covered this, even though most of their titles are sold out. The PC offers weren’t worth mentioning. Meanwhile, one of TheHut and Zavvi’s long running ‘X games for £XX’ sales finally deserves a mention in this week’s roundup, while Zavvi continues with the long-running random offers. Discount codes and points promotions are still being run by ASDA, Shopto, Tesco and Zavvi. As for weekly deals, those belong to GAME, Gamestation and Play.

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 and weekly offers of this period, ASDA is still offering 10% off all pre-order games when the code GPRE10 is entered at the basket.

GAME’s Deals of the Week continue, as do sister store Gamestation’s Steals of the Week. Unfortunately, the only title worth mentioning is SSX at £24.99. GAME has an extra incentive added on to their Deals of the Week though. If a buyer purchases any of the Xbox 360 deals of the week, they can also purchase an Official Media Remote for just £2.

Play’s Deals of the Week aren’t too spectacular this week, but WRC: FIA World Rally Championship 2 is £7.99.

To celebrate their success at MCV’s annual awards, Shopto is offering £3 off a spend of £20 or more when the code MCVWINNERS is entered at the checkout. Meanwhile, they aren’t running a specific sale this week; instead we have a number of Xbox 360 Special Offers. These are the bargains:
