UK Deal Roundup for January 22nd, 2013

By Keith Gray, 3 years ago
Welcome to another edition of the revamped UK Deal Roundup. The woeful British weather should be a cause for celebration as, much like the recent weather, the deals continue to pour in.

The usual retailers make an appearance again this week, with the exception of the ill-fated HMV. Last week, HMV didn't have any good deals to mention, but that pales into insignificance this week as the retailer's website is in lockdown as the firm is now being run by administrators. Let's hope the retailer can show face in the UK Deal Roundup at some point in the future.

On the flip side, ShopTo has so many great deals this time around that I've decided to exceed the usual "ten items per retailer" limit to fit them all in.

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 the homepage of their respective website, and from there you can simply search for the item of choice. Please see the notes at the bottom of the article for additional pricing information. All prices are correct at the time of writing, and subject to change at any time at the retailer's discretion.

Notes

Prices marked with a single * throughout the article indicate that the price is matched by Amazon.

TheHut and Zavvi are sister stores, so as you may expect (but surprisingly is not always the case!), a fair amount of price matching occurs. The ** markers indicate where one store has matched its counterpart.

All other price-matching is indicated by [insert retailer name here].


Please note: The deals highlighted in this article are based on the prices for purchasing new, sealed copies of the titles mentioned. Promotions on pre-owned/used titles, or deals offered by private sellers on retailers' "Marketplaces", are not considered for inclusion in the UK Deal Roundup.
