UK Deal Roundup for February 5th, 2013

By Keith Gray, 3 years ago
Welcome to another edition of the UK Deal Roundup. Amazon, ShopTo, TheHut and Zavvi are the stars of the show this time around. The second of those brings about wreckless abandon as my "maximum of 10 items per retailer" policy goes out the window, thanks to a proverbial truck load of deals. Furthermore, and by popular demand, SimplyGames gets its first outing in the Roundup! As if those offers weren't enough already, all of the other retailers provide a better-than-usual selection of deals.

We mentioned a couple of weeks ago that the new format for the UK Deal Roundup seems to have been largely well-received, due in part to it being more user-friendly. Well, just as you look to get settled into the new format, we're about to make another change. Rest assured, the new approach of looking at each retailer in turn will remain unchanged. However, over recent weeks, we've noticed that very little change occurs between the deals and prices on offer on a week-by-week basis. For that reason, we've decided to alter the Roundup frequency to once-per-month. The Roundup article will now be published on the first Tuesday of each calendar month. These regular articles are written for you, our community, so feel free to comment and let us know what you think about this latest change!

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

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.
