UK Deal Roundup for September 11th, 2012

By Keith Gray, 6 years ago
Retail releases aren't the only things looking up in the gaming world this week. The sales are back to some semblance of order with Base bringing its first new promotion in many weeks and another new set of deals from Sainsbury's. ASDA seem to want a piece of the pre-order action this time around, with the promise of beta access to sweeten the deal. None of those promotions come remotely close to topping the superb price that Tesco are offering for a Limited Edition copy of a month-old instant hit. I won't tease any longer... see below for the important stuff!

Just one of the small number of deals featured last week make a return in the recurring sales. Unfortunately, several of the summer-themed promotions which have been running over the past few months have been dropped this week.

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

Ahead of its release next month, ASDA is the best squad around when it comes to the current pre-order price for the Limited Edition of series reboot sequel, Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The deadly price of £34.97 trumps other retailers. You should also bear in mind that pre-ordering the Limited Edition will grant early access to the multiplayer beta of Battlefield 4 as an added incentive.

Base has a small selection of titles for under £10. Prices quoted are when bought from Base directly, rather than independent sellers. The following games are included:
Hunted: The Demon's Forge - £6.99
Project Gotham Racing 3 - £9.99
Samurai Shodown Sen - £9.49 (Classics) - £9.99
WET - £7.59
• Xbox LIVE Hits Collection (Retail triple pack including LIMBO, Splosion Man and Trials HD) - £9.99

If you want a new console to tackle the year's biggest releases, then you should head over to GameStop and take advantage of the Hardware Price Drop. The promotion sees a 4GB Xbox 360 S Console & Kinect bundle (including Kinect Adventures) for £214.97.

GameStop also has a number of titles reduced as part of its Back To School deals. Unfortunately, only the Worms Collection is worth a mention at £14.97.

Sainsbury's Big Night In promotion includes Games for family and friends and Games for yourself. at £16.99 is the only stand-out title from the limited selection across the two separate sections, although a few others may be worth your consideration.

Tesco has a stellar promotion on the Limited Edition of Sleeping Dogs for a sweet (and definitely not sour) price tag of £24.97. Take your chance to snap up the recent release, which has enjoyed rave reviews across TA and the wider gaming community.
