UK Deal Roundup for August 6th, 2013

By Keith Gray, 3 years ago
Welcome to another edition of the UK Deal Roundup. Blockbuster steals the show this time around with an array of fantastic low-price deals. As usual, the mighty Amazon and ShopTo bring an equally good bunch of options. The sale at GAME has changed, and the number of good deals is disappointingly low. GamesCentre recovers from a poor month to offer a trio of different titles. On the other hand, Tesco's involvement in the Roundup seems Infinite, albeit that's the only title they offer at a price worth mentioning. The other usual suspects, ASDA, SimplyGames, TheHut, and Zavvi all have a small amount of good deals available.

The next Roundup should be published four weeks from now, on September 3rd, as I'll be away for a late Summer break in the meantime!

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.
