This is my first time posting a deal, but I noticed Hitman: Absolution was $39.99 new for PS3/360 on Gamestop's website. I don't know how long it will be that price for.

Cool, but I can wait for $15. My backlog can speak for itself. Thanks for posting, OP.

Thanks for the tip OP! Been waiting for some deals on this game to pop up. I might have to wait on getting this and Far Cry 3, I've got so many games I still need to dig deeper into.

It's a lot better than 5.



Also anyone know if it's possible to get this to work with the $20 giftcard at BB?

Well now I wish I would have picked this up at BBY today with the $20 GC. Time for a PM at BBY. I wonder what would be the best way to do this.

I have it and its ok at best. Its def. not better than RE5, but lets not get into that topic ;). Its been awhile since I last played a hitman game so Ima wait on less than $30 for this one.

Just looks like a pre-Christmas sale to me. Random price drops on newer titles are par for the course this time of year.

Professional Edition is also down to 59.99 but that's just DLC and an art book and shit.

Is this game worth the buy and put in the backlog? If i do get this it will be a price match for the 40 and i will be printing out my 20 gift card coupon from reward zone. If i do get this game would it matter 360 or ps3??

Nope, I liked RE5 too.

...But I still think RE6 is better.

No, 4 is great and 5 is good. The problem with 5 is when they started giving enemies guns. The cover system seemed like something they threw in at the very last possible minute. It just didn't work well.



And off topic, anyone know how much Hitman shows up for if I buy it at BB with the $20 thing and then try to pricematch later? Does the receipt show the $20 being deducted from Hitman?

I saw this price on Amazon earlier and didn't realize it was a GS match. I guess I should have figured they were matching someone. I just got back from Best Buy where I did a return/rebuy. PM'ed it for $39.99 and got the $20 gift card. $20 for my most anticipated game of the year (and it has not disappointed yet) on release day is more than I could have asked for.

Are you sure it's guaranteed to work? PM + GC double dip?

I guess if this price holds tomorrow I will be making my way back to BBY. If I can get it for $40 + the GC then I will buy it. Question is should I buy it first then take the receipt to CS and PM or PM right at the register?

No, shows a GC package purchase though.

that was a quick price drop. Seems like Square Enix are being very generous this year.

Not really, but I think that's because I had used a RZ cert on the original purchase. They had to do a workaround and it took about 10 minutes, but it all worked out in the end. If you didn't use any sort of RZ/Shopkick cert it should be a simple return/rebuy.

I guess if this price holds tomorrow I will be making my way back to BBY. If I can get it for $40 + the GC then I will buy it. Question is should I buy it first then take the receipt to CS and PM or PM right at the register?


PM it at the register. The $20 gift card will pop up automatically when they finalize the transaction. Just make sure you claim that offer in your RZ account before you head to the store and make sure they scan your RZ card at the register.

Does not say online only. Usually GS is pretty clear about that so I would say it is in-store also. Looks like it will be for the entire week also. So glad I cancelled my pre-order from them.
