By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
If the majority of you can tear yourself away from last week’s small indie release, otherwise known as L.A. Noire, you may be able to find yourselves a bargain this week.

The continuing sales from previous weeks include:

GAME are still offering an extra 1000 reward points with purchases of select titles – details here
Gamestation are still offering triple XP on all trade ins, as well as triple XP on select new titles – details here

• The two games for £25 offer at TheHut.com, which is also running at sister store Zavvi – details here.
• The Great Value Gaming sale at TheHut.com, also known as Great Value Games at sister store Zavvi – details here.

To start off the new sales of the week, GAME has a Killer Console Deal running where purchasers get an Xbox 250 GB Slim complete with Call of Duty: Black Ops for just £179.99 and an extra 4000 reward points. In a similar offer, purchasers can get an extra 4000 reward points when they buy a Kinect Sensor complete with https://www.trueachievements.com/Kinect-Adventures-xbox....htm, https://www.trueachievements.com/Kinectimals-xbox-360.htm, https://www.trueachievements.com/Kinect-Sports-xbox-360.htm and 800 MSP, all for just £129.99.

Clark PL has drawn my attention to an interesting console deal at Amazon. Players can get a free copy of Fable III, and a second game from a list of select titles for an additional £10, with all purchases of an Xbox 360 Slim console. The select titles are:
Halo: Reach
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
DiRT 3
Michael Jackson: The Experience
Dragon Age II
Fight Night Champion
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12: The Masters
FIFA 11
Need for Speed: SHIFT 2: Unleashed
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
Dead Space 2
The final price for the Xbox 250 GB Slim bundle is £184.98, and the final price for the Xbox 4 GB Slim bundle is £159.00.

GamePlay are currently running a few 24/7 Specials at the moment; the most notable deal is Fight Night Champion for £22.99 with free UK delivery.

Sainsburys are offering 10% off pre-orders of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and an additional 500 Nectar points bonus. To qualify for the 10% discount, purchasers have to add the code JSCOD820 at the checkout. This brings the game down to £35.99.

The Weekly Special at Shopto.net sees MotoGP 10/11 discounted to just £17.86. Their Star Buys still see Sniper: Ghost Warrior discounted to £16.85, but SBK 2011 FIM Superbike World Championship has also joined the list at £22.85.

Tesco are offering L.A. Noire for just £25 when it is bought with another game from a select list of titles. The list covers the majority of recent releases, including Portal 2.

The Super 6 Deals return at The Hut. This time, buyers can receive £5 off their total if they spend £50 or more, but the code MMD50 must be entered at the checkout.

Finally, Zavvi are running a May Mayhem sale with some notable bargains:
Rock Band 3 - £12.85
World Snooker Championship Real 2011 - £17.85
de Blob 2 - £9.85
Deadly Premonition - £12.85

All prices were correct at the time of writing.
