At a Twitter follower's suggestion I bought some games from UK online retailer Zavvi recently. They had some attractive specials at the time, so I thought I'd take another look today to see if those deals continued.
I picked up a bunch of Wii and DS games (Rune Factory Frontier and Infinite Space to name but two) I'd missed over the last year or so. Not only was I able to get hold of some games I'd likely have trouble finding locally, but I saved a considerable amount of money, too, taking advantage of the relative weakness of the pound.
Today, Zavvi is promoting a "mega sale" with games starting from just £4.95. Are they any good though?
While Russell Grant's Astrology (DS) or Hasbro Family Game Night (PS2) might not necessarily appeal to Kotaku readers, there's also the likes of Mass Effect (PC), Dead Space (PC), Dragon Quest: Swords (Wii), Overlord: Dark Legend (Wii), Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box (PC) and Dark Void (PC) in that same price bracket. For £1 more you can get Guitar Hero On Tour (DS) or Boom Blox Bash Party (Wii).
At £6.95, there's Samba De Amigo (Wii), The Witcher (PC) and Rock Band (PS3) while I'd absolutely recommend giving Blast Works (Wii) and Silent Hill Origins (PSP) a go for £7.95. And, at £9.95, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS) is a bargain. My pick, however is the Batman Arkham Asylum: GOTY Edition for £17.95.
All up it's not as impressive a sale as the one the other week. But I'll be checking back in future to see if they have any better deals.
I'm curious where you shop online. Which online retailer have you found offering the best deals?
