Hmm I have this pre-ordered at GS since I did a trade. Was thinking of just buying it from BBY instead for the price match. This is a good option also.

Never played a hitman game before, so should I play the other ones if I wanna play this one, so I can understand the story?

$5 hitman code from the square enix bundle still is valid so another $5 off if you bought that.

you dont need to play the other ones. there really isnt a story just jobs you need to complete without being noticed if you can

Hmm... Might put in an order just in case Amazon decides to slap some credit on it, but it's so close to the release date that it might not be worth the effort.

If Absolution looks like your cup of tea, then definitely try Blood Money if you're able to get your hands on it for a reasonable price. A used 360 copy could run you $25+ (there's a demo on XBL, actually), but if you have a decent PC then definitely try to get Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and Blood Money as they are arguably the best entries in the franchise. However as for story, I don't think you'd be lost. Having a grasp on the gameplay and stealth mechanics is going to be really nice going into this game, though.

Something else to consider: there's also a Hitman HD Collection for PS3 and 360 coming out sometime in the future. The release was supposedly delayed from October 15th to January 1st, which is a shame since it would've been perfect timing for just about anyone trying to get into the series before Absolution.

Mmmmm... poisoned doughnuts.

Love the hitman series, Blood money was one of my favourite games so i recommend getting that as well. Have a look on youtube at gameplay and you will understand. http://www.discountx...ni.me/changeme/

Decent deal if you weren't able to get in on any of Newegg's pre-order promos.
Thanks OP.

I was lucky enough to get one of the Square Enix bundles before they went OOS. This is still too rich for my blood considering my backlog...but I'm sure another CAG would put this $5-off coupon to good use. Please post if you use the code so others don't waste their time.

This sounded really tempting because it included DLC, but it looks like this deal is now finished.

The game is sitting on $58.99 for consoles again...although I have it pre-ordered with NewEgg I'm still disappointed in Amazon...
