UK Deal Roundup for March 5th, 2013

By Keith Gray, 3 years ago
Welcome to another edition of the UK Deal Roundup. Amazon, GamesCentre, Play, ShopTo, Tesco, TheHut and Zavvi all have strong outings with bundles and bundles of deals offered between them. ASDA, Blockbuster, GAME and SimplyGames have weaker showings, however they nonetheless manage to offer a small number of great deals each. After losing both Base and HMV (each for different reasons) in recent Deal Roundup articles, it is a relief to see MyMemory enter the fold as a new retailer to feature.

You may remember that in the last Roundup (on February 5th) we had decided to move the UK Deal Roundup to a monthly frequency, but we were also open to community feedback on the subject. The bulk of the comments agreed that a weekly article was "too much, too often" and many members also believed that a monthly article would become too infrequent. Hence, I intended to start offering a fortnightly instalment from February 19th, but I was unable to collate those deals due to unforeseen circumstances.

The fortnightly frequency will go ahead after today, so the next UK Deal Roundup will be published on March 19th.

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.
