Hitman Absolution Is the Latest Target in Sony's European Sale

Posted by Sammy Barker

Decisions, decisions

If we hadn’t successfully survived the end of the world last night, then we would have missed out on another cracking deal in Sony’s ongoing European Christmas countdown. Right now you can pick up the recently released Hitman Absolution for just £19.99/€29.99. That’s roughly the same price as the physical edition – but it’s worth noting that PlayStation Plus subscribers will get an extra 15 per cent off, making the final price an appealing £16.99/€25.49.

If you want to take advantage of the discount, you’ll need to cough up before 23:59PM GMT on 22nd December. Let us know whether you plan to pull the trigger in the comments section below.

Hmm, glad you brought this up, Sammy; my own assumption is that despite the uninformed speculating PS4 (Orbis) and Xbox 720 are out within 12 months, the subtle yet considerable price cuts to not just Sony or one title - in this case, Absolution - point toasted aggressive sales as a final push for games on this generation. Hitman AND Dishonoured are currently £18-19 on Amazon AND Tesco - for both systems.

Let's have more of it. I'm still marvelling Rayman Origins is currently £12 on Amazon, so clearly ALL distribution channels are being discounted....definitely a good thing, but purely Xmas sales? Maybe something more to it from both Microsoft AND Sony.

Personally, the people on gaming podcasts a la PSM3 continually pontificate on PS4 and pose questions such as are current gen lifespans killing the industry....these guys make me laugh

With earlier consoles you claimed hardware was too expensive for only 5 year cycles, yet now the lauded 10-year Sony cycle - also confirmed for Vita - is a 'killer' for the industry.

Get some consistency, chaps. Some of us see longer hardware cycles as value for money, which in a recession isn't a bad consideration, n' set ce pas?
