Christmas Sales - Everything You Need to Know, Updated in a Timely FashionBookmark this page.

Nobody is a fan of spending more money than they have to – that’s why you bought your dad some socks and a 6 pack of crisps for Christmas – so we here at GodisaGeek want to bring you all the terrific digital and UK based retail deals out there, for the best games on the market.

We’ll be updating this when we hear of some other fantastic deals, but if you spot something that you think the GodisaGeek readers would like to hear about, drop it into the comments below and we’ll update this post with the new info!

December 20

Polytron’s unique platformer Fez is half price for one day only on Xbox 360. You can pick up the game for a measly 400 Microsoft Points and we think you’d be mad to let this pass you by. In other Xbox related savings, the downright amazing Mark of the Ninja is half price at 600 Microsoft Points. To prep yourself for Rayman Legends, why not download Rayman Origins for £19.99 or, pick up Trine 2 for 400 Microsoft Points.

PlayStation are currently running a 12 Deals of Christmas promotion and up until 11.59 pm tonight, you can get two of the best games from this past year in a half price, BOGOF type deal. Journey and The Unfinished Swan should not be missed, especially as the games are usually £19.98/€25.98 when bought separately and you can now pick them up in the aforementioned bundle for £9.99/€12.99. PlayStation Plus subscribers will also get an addditional 10% off, bringing it down to £8.99/€11.69.

It would be bold of us to forget about the folk who play on their smartphones, and it would also be wrong to do so as the mesmerising Bastion is on sale for $0.99/£0.69/€0.89 on iOS via the Bastion - Warner Bros.. Now that’s a steal.

In terms of retail games on the 360 and PS3, Far Cry 3 is currently on sale at both GAME and Amazon for £22.49. If you refrain from availing of that offer, I’m not sure we can be friends anymore.

Over on Zavvi.com, you can pick up the wonderful Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed for only £17.99 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The Steam Holiday Sale has begun, so PC gamers better get ready to lose their life savings between now and January 6.
