UK Deal Roundup for July 19th, 2011

By Rebecca Smith, 7 years ago
This week I’m tweaking the format of this roundup again. Some of the continuing sales have been running since May, and even I’m not sure which titles are included in those sales anymore. As a result, I’m going to be starting a reminder section, where I will go over the details of any sale that has been running for longer than four weeks. I’m also re-ordering the article so that the new sales, which will be of more interest, will be listed first.

Click on the name of the retailer or the name of the deal to be taken straight to the retailer’s offer page. Further details on the deals, including the best pick of the sale items, can be found in the ‘details here’ link, which will take you back to the relevant UK deal roundup that described the sale in more detail. Clicking on the name of a game will take you to the achievement list.
