UK Deal Roundup for January 10th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Don’t get your hopes up; the new sales for this week are, quite frankly, pretty poor. The two games for £25 promotion returns at Base, but the selection of games available is a shadow of those that were available when the promotion ran last year. Zavvi’s Price Drop has also returned, and is one of only two significant new sales this week. Shopto and TheHut both have weekly offerings, the latter of which makes up the second notable new sale. To make up for this though, some of the larger sales get a reminder this week.

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, Base has restarted their offer where buyers can get two games for £25. Unfortunately, the only two games included in the offer that can’t be bought for less than £12.50 are L.A. Noire and PopCap Hits Volume 2.

Shopto’s Xbox 360 Star Buys only include Just Cause 2 at £8.86. Meanwhile, their Xbox 360 Weekly Specials only include Red Faction: Armageddon for £7.85 and Tekken 6, which is still at £8.86.

TheHut’s Super Six deals have created a few promotional codes this week. Buyers can save £3 when spending over £30 if they enter SALE3 at the basket. Alternatively, save £5 when spending over £50 when the code JANUARY50 is entered at the checkout. Finally, the retailer is running a Best of 2011 promotion. Buyers can get an extra 10% off the cost of games included in this specific promotion when the code 10BO2011 is entered at the checkout. This would make them the cheapest retailer for these games:
