UK Deal Roundup for November 22nd, 2011

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
After the void that was last week, we have a lot more sales for you this week. For the first time since I’ve been doing these roundups, I have all 17 retailers featuring in one way or another, as Sainsburys finally returns with “Great deals on selected Xbox 360 Consoles, Software and Accessories”. Amazon gets into the Holiday spirit with a Seasonal Savings sale, while Tesco gets into family gaming. Play and Zavvi restart some of their previous promotions. Shopto finally gets ahead of the field and becomes the all-round cheapest retailer for consoles. Finally, Play, Shopto and TheHut have decent 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.
