    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.

    Savygamer has a link to G2Play on their list of retailers on the right. :o There are plenty of less-dodgy gray-import key resellers online! Why, Savygamer? Whhhyyyyyy?!? Why are you so unsavvy?

    I asked this before (I used to post a lot of bargains as I wasn't particularly busy (sorry, I'm in the middle of a contract now and don't have oodles of time)), but are there some official EG affiliate links or tags or something that we could be made aware of? I don't want to turn the bargains thread into some sort of police-state use-EG-aff-stuff-or-DIE place, but it would be nice to have the option to throw on an affiliate suffix if I happen to have a minute to spare. Just a thought. The profits could be put towards funding an EG forum search function that can be sorted by date, for example.

    Another useful gaming deal site is Deals4Downloads.com (for PC download games).

    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!
