The continuing sales from previous weeks include:

To start off the new sales of the week, Amazon is giving buyers a free Xbox LIVE Gold three month membership with purchases of Kinect and Kinect Adventures, all for the low price of just £79.

Asda are currently offering three PC games for just £10. Although the majority of the titles are not Games for Windows LIVE enabled, you may be interested to know that BioShock 2 (PC), Battlestations: Pacific (PC) and Batman: Arkham Asylum (PC) are on the list of over 300 titles. This sale is also running at sister stores TheHut.com and Zavvi.

The Weekly Special at Shopto.net sees SBK 2011 FIM Superbike World Championship at £19.85 and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II at £14.86. Their Star Buys also mean that UFC Undisputed 2010 is reduced to £7.85.

Most shops come up with a catchy name for their sales, but Shopto.net’s current offer is imaginatively called “Sale”. The best picks are:
Fable III - £17.86
Toy Story 3 - £19.85
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction - £8.86
Fight Night Round 4 - £7.85
Damnation - £5.86

Buyers can currently save up to 60% in the Kid’s Corner at TheHut.com. I’ve provided a link to the list of games on all platforms, as the Xbox 360 list misses some of the titles in the original list for some reason. The best deals are:
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 - £12.85

Carnival Games: Monkey See, Monkey Do - £17.85

Finally, Zavvi has a special offer on Red Dead Redemption Limited Edition, which includes the “Golden Guns Weapon Pack”, the “Deadly Assassin Outfit” and the “War Horse”, all for the low price of £17.85. - since writing this article, this offer has changed and is now restricted to the standard version of the title for the same price of £17.85.

All prices were correct at the time of writing.
