UK Deal Roundup for January 8th, 2013

By Keith Gray, 3 years ago
I feel I must begin 2013 with an apology because the UK Deal Roundup fell off the radar in December, without so much as an excuse. Rest assured, I can explain! I was on holiday for the first two weeks of the month and at the time of writing the last Roundup for November 27th, I was still pondering whether or not the (usually) regular article would be making an appearance during December. As it happens, the two remaining weeks in the year would have seen the Roundup return on Christmas Day and New Year's Day and, as I'm sure you'll agree, that simply wasn't plausible.

Anyway, fast forward to now and the UK Deal Roundup makes its return. I've decided to refresh the article with a new format, since the start of a new year is as good an excuse as any to do just that! As oppose to highlighting specific new promotions (as well as noting continuing sales), the new format sees every one of the regularly included retailers getting their moment in the spotlight each week. Up to ten items (games or accessories) will be cherry picked from each retailer's gaming section and highlighted under the relevant heading.

As always, clicking a game title will take you to that game's achievement list. Clicking on a retailer's name will take you to either the homepage or gaming section of their respective website, and from there you can simply search for the item of choice. All prices are correct at the time of writing, and subject to change at any time at the retailer's discretion.
