UK Deal Roundup for October 18th, 2011

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
I apologise for the lack of UK Deals article last week. Due to a family emergency, I wasn’t able to write the article, and it was unfair to expect another Newshound to take on this overkill extensive article at such short notice. However, your article returns with style this week as Base and GAME start new sales. GamesCentre finally makes its debut in the article with a sale that includes some fairly unbelievable bargains. Shopto, Tesco, TheHut and Zavvi all have decent weekly offerings too.

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.
