So if you guys still debating on getting Hitman Absolution here is the Professional Edition for $35.99 at best buy.

When you go to the page it says Free Shipping but it also shows shipping not available lol I managed to get a order for store pick up. Possibly might be an In Store only deal.

I think I may grab this to sit next to the HD trilogy I picked up..not that I'm worried about PMing to a lower price since I'm Premiere Silver, but those who aren't, today would be a good day to pick it up in case it drops lower..usually at Best Buy, once these CE's start dropping, they keep going down.

Almost did it, regular edition dropping to $29.99 is too sad. I'll save my funds for MLB 13.


Why is it sad that a game drops in price?

Because it usually (not always) indicates that it had poor sales?

It is also produced by Square Enix. Notorious price droppers (Even their coveted Final Fantasy series drops like a stone now).

If the store only had a single copy then the inventory checker usually claims it is unavailable for pickup.

If the store is close, I’d check in person.

yeah, I actually called one and they said they just processed an in-store pickup order, but listed 3 other stores that still showed some. I called one and they did a 'phone sale' without actually charging me over the phone and held it for me. Just got it. Opened it in the car, man it smells so good! Its like they put extra 'new game' scent on the box..

How did the game do by the way? I played and beat it near launch and though it was great.

I'm with you there, man. A lot of the Hitman "purists" didn't care much for Absolution, but i loved every minute of it. I've beaten it but at this price, i'll pick it up for the hardcover art book. Thanks OP!

Just picked up a copy at the store 2 mins away. Only 1 copy on the shelf, and shows 'Unavailable' online. Rang up $35.99.

Get a $60 game on day one for as low as $10?! :hot:

Seems like a behind-the-scenes DVD, artbook and some in-game content.

Fancy case (not steelbook), artbook, bonus DVD and a DLC code.

  • Exclusive "Making of Video"
  • Hitman Art Book
  • "Agency Gun Pack" DLC
I was thinking about it, but i have the regular edition already. It is a great game though

Also looks like PS3 only Xbox 360 PE is a bit more
