UK Deal Roundup for June 12th, 2012

UK Deal Roundup for June 12th, 2012

The best of the UK prices

Written by punkyliar on 12 June 12 at 13:16

I apologise for the lack of UK deals over the past two weeks. With the chaos of E3 last week and an increase in work hours the week before, I just couldn’t find the time to do this article justice. This week we’re back and trying desperately to catch up. We have substantial new sales from GAME, Gamestation, Play, TheHut and Zavvi. HMV, Sainsburys, TheHut and Zavvi all start smaller promotions, while Zavvi also continues their random promotions. Shopto has its usual weekly offers, while ASDA, Sainsburys, Tesco, TheHut and Zavvi all have discount codes.

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. Clicking on the name of a game will take you to the achievement list. All prices were correct at the time of writing.

I don’t usually cover consoles in the middle of the month, but ASDA has a great offer to start off the new and weekly offers of this period. Buyers can get £30 off the new Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Special Edition Celebration Pack when the code XCB30 is entered at the checkout. This brings the bundle to the low price of £185.00.

To celebrate the summer, GAME and Gamestation are offering 25% off a range of titles. Here are the best picks:
Batman: Arkham City (PC) Robin Edition - £12.99
http://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-4-xbox-360.htm - £12.99
http://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-World-at-W....htm - £12.99
http://www.trueachievements.com/Modern-Warfare-2-xbox-3....htm - £12.99
Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion XL - £17.99

http://www.trueachievements.com/Sniper-Elite-V2-xbox-360.htm - £22.99
Sniper: Ghost Warrior - £12.99

HMV’s Games Sale returns with a much reduced number of titles. The only ones worth mentioning are The Gunstringer for £11.99 and Quantum Theory for £9.99.

Play’s new promotion is their Top Entertainment Deals. They’re still quite expensive compared to other sites, but these items are the ones that make the deal worth mentioning:
http://www.trueachievements.com/Assassins-Creed-xbox-360.htm + http://www.trueachievements.com/Assassins-Creed-II-xbox....htm Double Pack - £11.99
• Crown Kinect TV Mount - £4.89
Awakening in Dragon Age: Origins - £4.99
Dragon Age II - £11.99
FIFA Street - £23.99
• Microsoft Official VGA HD Cable - £16.99
Need for Speed: The Run - £12.99

Sainsburys has started a Great Value Party Games promotion, but the only title worth mentioning is Nickelodeon Dance for £17.99. Likewise, the only title that their Games for Father’s Day sale yields is Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 Master’s Edition for £24.99.

If pre-ordering is more your thing, Sainsburys is offering 20% off the cost of http://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-Black-Ops-....htm when the code SEE3TWE is entered at the checkout.

Shopto’s Hot Deals have a few more bargains:
Blackwater - £14.86
The Darkness II Limited Edition - £19.85
Final Fantasy XIII-2 - £8.86
Sports Island Freedom - £17.86
Xbox LIVE Hits Collection - £7.85

Tesco is offering £5 off a spend of £30 or more when the code 5OFF30 is entered at the basket. The offer can’t be used on Microsoft Points cards.

TheHut’s Super Six deals create one discount code this week. Buyers can save £10 when spending £100 or more if the code SUPER100 is entered at the basket. Their Games Under £5 promotion still continues, but only becomes worth a mention again this week. Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (PC) is £3.95 and Yoostar 2: In The Movies is £4.95.

TheHut is having a sale on Rockstar Games, with these titles being worth a look:
Grand Theft Auto IV - £12.45
Grand Theft Auto IV Episodes From Liberty City - £12.45
Grand Theft Auto IV (PC) Episodes From Liberty City - £12.45
Max Payne 3 - £29.95

Good to see these back. I love me some bargains. But I'm finding the Fallout New Vegas offer is at The Hut rather than Zavvi :)
I have a bad feeling about this....

Not sure if this has been mentioned and whether this applies to other stores in the UK, but:

Tesco has the Wreslemania Edition of WWE '12 on for 19.88 - This includes codes for online axxess, The Rock and the Fan Axxess pack which has all the DLC for free. I picked this up as I thought it was a really good deal
