UK Deal Roundup for October 4th, 2011

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Most of this week’s sales are continuing; the only new sale is the Pay Day Price Crash at TheHut. Play, Shopto, TheHut and Zavvi all have their usual weekly offerings. As usual you need to 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.

To start off the new sales of the week, GAME are running a very limited Great Games Great Prices promotion. The only Xbox 360 titles in the offer are both good bargains though, with Duke Nukem Forever and Red Faction: Armageddon at £9.99 each. Both prices are reflected in sister store Gameplay’s 24/7 Specials and Gamestation’s Cheaper Than Fresher’s Week sale, both of which add more bargains to the list.
