UK Deal Roundup for November 1st, 2011

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Play.com excel themselves this week with two new sales to go alongside the offers that have been running over previous weeks. TheHut and Zavvi have started smaller sales to go alongside their bigger sales too. Halloween is still having an effect at Gamestation, as they start a small Nightmare Before Christmas sale. Shopto is late to the scene with an Autumn Sale - most retailers have already finished these. Finally Shopto and Tesco have some decent weekly offers.

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.
