Where is the cheapest place to buy Batman: Arkham City?
At HMV. Oh but it's a trade-in deal. Trade back Rage or Forza Motorsport 4 and you can buy Batman: Arkham City for £0.99.
Alternatively, trade Forza 4, Gears 3, X-Men Destiny or FIFA 12 back to Game, and Batman: Arkham City will be yours for £4.99.
The supermarkets are staying mum for now in an effort to surprise and gazump each other on Friday. Their deals are unlikely to be jaw dropping, but if you see otherwise, please let us know.
If you pre-order from Sainsbury's online, however, and enter the code JSGANEW102011, then Batman: Arkham City drops to £30.39 (thanks to those below who mentioned this). Offer is valid until Sunday, October 23rd.
There's talk on HotUKDeals of getting Batman: Arkham City for £30 at Tesco when you spend more than £40 in the supermarket, which you invariably will.
A poster has been spotted at Morrisons offering Batman: Arkham City for £29.99 if you also buy 1800 Microsoft Points.
Online, there are outlet-specific extras to keep an eye on. Gameplay and Game have the most significant bonus in the Robin Edition, which adds a playable Robin character, two Robin challenge maps and two Robin skins. Gameplay's £37.99 tag with free first class postage is very tempting.
TheHut has an eye-catching deal whereby £36.85 nets you the Batman: Arkham City game, plus The Dark Knight and Batman Begins Blu-ray double-pack.
Don't forget OnLive, those of you lucky enough to have picked up a free console from the Eurogamer Expo 2011. PlayPack subscribers can play Batman: AC for £27.99.
The PC version of Batman: Arkham City won't be released until 18th November, remember.
Each new, boxed copy of Batman comes with a VIP pass that unlocks a playable Catwoman character and her associated missions and Achievements/Trophies. Alone, a VIP pass costs 800 Microsoft Points or £7.99.
