If you're heading into the high street this weekend, make sure to stop off at your local GAME and see if there are £30 worth of games worth picking up.
If you spend over £30, you'll get your choice of £5 Steam, PSN or Xbox Live credit, which is a seriously nifty promotion. Definitely worth scouring through the pre-owned shelves and manager specials.
Thanks to Xtrartx @ HUKD!

GAME have unleashed their schedule for their hourly Cyber Monday games deals, kicking things off with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and Disney Infinity 2.0.
The deals will run as outlined above, with the gaming discounts lasting no longer than an hour at a time.
GAME are currently running a promotion combining their rewards programme with Skylanders Trap Team goodies at the moment. There's a whole host of information on it over on their website, but it looks as though you can nab a Skylanders trap by simply signing up to the Skylander Trap Team Club in-store at GAME.
HUKD user Gorilla26 posted that his brother had received a free water Trap as a result of signing up to the Trap Team Club, and we looked to clarify this with GAME, asking for clarification on the promotion and whether or not it's nationwide. Here's the statement we were given earlier:
"Hi Matt, yes this should be nationwide. Pls query with your local GAME store for further updates on this promotion. Many thanks."
We've followed up with a request for further information, and we'll publish here as soon as we hear more. As stated above, the promotion should be nationwide, but it's worth getting in contact with your local store to double check, and it may well be stock-dependent.
If you fancy the idea of standing in a queue on the high street as bitter winter winds lash at your coat tails, you're in luck, because over 300 GAME stores will be running midnight launches for this holiday season's biggest franchise entries.

There's a real sense of camaraderie you can only get from a midnight launch, so if you want more details, GAME has posted all the details in a handy roundup with participating stores and times. The festivities start on November 1st with the simultaneous release of Assassin's Creed IV and Battlefield 4. Just in case you can't make it, though, we'll keep our eyes peeled for the latest online deals, alongside the legendary HUKD community.

GAME are now selling Wii U and 3DS eShop download codes in-store and online via email. Though this might initially seem to be just a little reactionary, most of these titles significantly undercut Nintendo's downloadable RRP.Click here to read more...
Last week finally saw HMV find a new buyer, ensuring one more traditional bricks and mortar business would enable gaming to have a high street presence alongside Blockbuster and Game. With most of us using online retailers to buy and pre-order games nowadays, you may wonder why we still need video games to be represented on the high street.
As this console generation winds down, we’ve seen a steep decline in game sales across the board. In 2012, retail sales were hit the most and dropped by over 20%. Game, Blockbuster and HMV barely survived, as gamers’ attention wavered. The original Wii’s bubble burst and there was a lack of any serious mass appeal products to renew lapsed players’ (read: more casual than you and I for example) interest. The numbers for Call of Duty are down and we’re repeatedly hearing of sequels selling only a shadow of what the previous game did – hello DMC.
So much rests on the shoulders of the next gen machines. Jaded consumers need to be blown away again with powerful graphics and innovative concepts that they can’t find on current gen consoles. If you think these things aren’t important then take a look at the Wii U. If retail stores can be a big part of the launch of next-gen consoles then they stand a better chance of being carried through with the renewed enthusiasm that gaming is crying out for and more importantly, customers might keep coming back.

UK trade body TIGA have issued a statement in the face of a week that has seen a number of high profile high-street chains slip into administration - not least HMV and Blockbuster - saying that the decline in physical retail has been driven by consumers embracing a digital revolution that will only move forward with greater momentum.Click here to read more...
