By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Although a few sales continue from previous weeks, the new summer sales have started in abundance – maybe it’s the influence of a certain small gaming expo that took place last week. Anyway, here’s this week’s roundup.

The continuing sales include:

• 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, Amazon has started their Summer Offers. The most notable bargains here are Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Guitar Bundle for £39, Body and Brain Connection for £19.90, and Yoostar 2: In The Movies for £29.99.

When purchasing any of the above, buyers can add the Wireless Entertainment Pack for an extra £35 – this includes Forza Motorsport 3 Ultimate Edition, Halo 3: ODST and a Wireless Controller (Black). Also, for an extra £25, players can add one of four options:
• Xbox LIVE 12 Month Gold Subscription

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean

Sainsbury’s has started an “Xbox Games From £4.99” offer. There are only 12 titles included, but Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare is £15.99, and a Halo Reach 2100 MSP card, complete with Banshee avatar prop, is only £14.99.

The Star Buys at Shopto.net see Brink at £21.85, and Alpha Protocol for just £7.85.

Finally, Toys R Us are having a sale on select titles at the moment. Although their prices are not the cheapest, I just had to point out the unbeatable deal of the Band Hero Complete Band Bundle for just £34.99.

All prices were correct at the time of writing.
