UK Deal Roundup for January 15th, 2013

By Keith Gray, 3 years ago
Welcome to another edition of the revamped UK Deal Roundup. We like to continually develop the features we offer here at TA and this article is no different. With that in mind, I'd like to personally thank the community for the positive comments received about the new format! As a result, the fresh approach continues again, however both Base and HMV are dropped this week due to a lack of worthwhile deals. Don't worry, they'll both get the opportunity to redeem themselves next week though. Elsewhere, there are plenty of other retailers offering good prices. The only other issue to be noted is that just one change has occured in the GAME section compared to last week.

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.
