UK Deal Roundup for September 4th, 2012

By Keith Gray, 4 years ago
Retailers seem to be getting more and more reluctant to offer up any bargains as the summer progress. This week is the worst I've seen in my short tenure as the UK Dealhound, with only Amazon and Zavvi revealing new promotions.

Thankfully, all of last week's new deals are still continuing and move into the recurring sales section.

You'll 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 and subject to change at the retailer's discretion.

New Sales

Amazon has a superb pre-order deal on https://www.trueachievements.com/Hitman-Absolution-xbox....htm with a price of £32.99. Pre-ordering the title from Amazon will net you the standalone Sniper Challenge game and some exclusive bonuses.

Amazon still sits atop the podium for https://www.trueachievements.com/London-2012-The-Offici....htm, priced at £21.90.

Zavvi has a new Outlet section. https://www.trueachievements.com/MINDJACK-xbox-360.htm for £14.95 and https://www.trueachievements.com/Virtua-Tennis-4-xbox-3....htm at £9.95 are a couple of the titles included. The same prices are also offered by sister store, TheHut.
