    I was supremely jealous of the U.S deals that popped up in their Black Friday sales! Still, there are always great bargains in UK gaming so, borrowing an idea from GAF, I thought I would round-up the sites that list current UK video game deals.

    Eurogamer Bargain Thread
    + It`s great, Eurogamer members are great, it helps support this site!
    - Deals can be hard to spot amongst a large thread that’s also full of chat.

    SavyGamer
    + Good selection of deals that pop up each day, includes used and ex-rental games
    - Maybe too many used games, only one guy updating it

    HotUKDeals
    + Loads of deals, one of the biggest, busiest UK deal sites
    - Not aimed at gamers, so much stuff it`s easy to miss the good gaming deals

    Cheapassgamer
    + Posts good deals
    - U.S focused, few UK deals

    Vanillaplay
    + Highlights the big new releases, includes tech deals and general store deals
    - Updates are not as frequent as some of the other sites.

    Find-Games
    + A searchable database of current prices
    - Only good if you know what you want and want it now.

    Any others? Or seen any good deals on these sites? I think I`ll be back with a word on the major online retailers soon…

    Ah! I see. Its a bit of a boys own club. Nice replies that illustrate the point. The chit chat here is cool if you want to chat to an internet buddy but not so cool if you`re looking for a deal. Not to say I don`t like your chat though, honest!

    The EG forum is a local forum for local people, you have no business here.

    I think mostly I post new games on SavyGamer, I only post used or exrental games when they offer a significant saving.

    As some point I hope to have a redesign of the site that will add a few features like letting you filter out used games if you prefer.

    I keep reading this as "Ladyboy's Bad Thread of Gaming Deal Sites"

    That is all.

    I came in here to say the exact same thing

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    I'm not a spammer, I'm the guy that runs SavyGamer.

    @PenguinJim you're right, I've not updated that section of the site in ages, I'll add a load of other sites when I get a quiet moment, although that's unlikely to happen this side of Christmas.

    Just a cook. And you?

    @Lewie Hi, there. Possibly the time I was using the site I noticed ex-rental games often poppping up. Probably great for some people but as a personal preference I buy games new. Look forward to the filter.

    I ordered from savvy gamer, but rather than receive a copy of GTA 4 I was taken roughly from behind by a irate Greek postman.

    Probably worth fixing up your site header graphics before punting your two day old website round t'internet.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!
