UK Deal Roundup for February 7th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
The new sales still aren’t too amazing I’m afraid. ASDA joins the ‘two games for £XX’ bandwagon. TheHut has also started a Stock Clearance sale. I have a feeling that this is just a re-skin of the Pay Day Price Crash from last week, but I’ve reported it as a new sale regardless. Shopto and TheHut also have their weekly offerings. Finally, this is the first deal roundup for February. As a result, the consoles get their monthly spotlight 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. All prices were correct at the time of writing.

To start off the new sales of the week, ASDA has started a promotion where buyers can get two games for £25. This is a list of games that can’t be bought for less than £12.50
Dead Space 2
