UK Deal Roundup for June 12th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
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 - £12.99 - £12.99 - £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.

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.
