UK Deal Roundup for March 6th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
The start of a new month brings out the sales at the retailers. GAME and Gamestation start their first new promotion for a few weeks, as does Tesco. Play expands on their “thousands of items for £X’ promotions. ADSA and Gamescentre also restart previous promotions. Play, Shopto, Tesco and TheHut all have decent weekly bargains.

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’s two games for £25 offer returns after a week’s hiatus. This is a list of games that can’t be bought for less than £12.50:
Dead Space 2
Medal of Honor
Need for Speed: SHIFT 2: Unleashed

GAME and Gamestation have started a clearance sale. Unfortunately, the majority of the titles are for other platforms, but Dance Central is £11.99 and Fable III (PC) is £8.99 (Gamestation only).

Gamescentre has restarted their Born to Play offers again. The only game worth mentioning is Dreamcast Collection at £5.99.

Play has now expanded on their promotion that sees “thousands of items for £X”. This week their offer for “hundreds of items for £15” sees the Crackdown and Mass Effect double pack at £15. Their “thousands of items for £10” offer is much more productive though. This is a list of games that can’t be bought for less than £10:

Crysis 2
Deathsmiles (EU)
Fantastic Pets
Gears of War 2 Complete Edition

Alternatively, buyers can save £2 when spending £20 if the code MARCHED2 is entered at the basket, or save £4 when spending £40 with the code MARCHED4.
