UK Deal Roundup for May 15th, 2012

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
Although we get a few more sales this week, the majority only include a handful of titles. GamesCentre, Sainsburys and Zavvi start new sales, while a familiar promotion returns at TheHut and Zavvi. The random offers continue at Zavvi this week, but ASDA also gets in on the act. Discount codes are being run by Sainsburys, TheHut and Zavvi, but we don’t have any points promotions. As for weekly deals, those belong to GAME, Gamestation, Play and Shopto.

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 and weekly offers of this period, ASDA has a great offer on Kinect at the moment. Buyers can get a Kinect sensor with Kinect Adventures and Dance Central 2 for £99.

GAME’s Deals of the Week and Gamestation’s Steals of the Week continue. The only deal worth mentioning is still Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for £27.99.
