Brilliant game and a great price.
Well worth it.
Hope it will be for PS3 too
That's HOT!
Come on Game, match this,I have vouchers burning a hole in my pocket!
Being waiting for this price thanks OP - ordered.
Worth £12. Not worth any more. 2 days of play to complete hard mode without going on a mad one.
Get it. Hot
Hot Game. Thanks Op
The magic price..
Don't know why square enix compete in this race to the bottom with every title they release. Don't buy this unless you are going to play immediately, as will likely keep coming down.

It's certainly an interesting strategy, whether it shifts more copies long-term I don't know.
At least it keeps the sales momentum going, long after the marketing campaign has been exhausted.

The unfortunate side effect is that I am hesitant to buy any of their newly released titles.
Bought! Been looking forward to this one!

So £12 is the price at which you think it's good value, yet you played it for two days' worth?

The amount retailers sell their games may have nothing to do with the publisher. Price fixing laws state that they cannot force retailers to stick to a price. Obviously the trade price for the titles probably comes down within weeks but I'm sure that is normal for practically every game. Also I can tell you that Kingdom Hearts 3D has never truly hit the bargain bin and that has been out for almost a year now.
Heat added.



This, or Far Cry 3?... Damnit, pick one, Late.
If I get this I need to play it straight away, as (as others have said) it'll probably be cheaper in a month. Far Cry is unlikely to drop below £15 again any time soon.
Guess I should go with FC3, and get TR in a month or two.

It's not done bad, TR has shifted about 3.5 Million. Hitman before this about 3.8 - so by no means failures. Unfortunately once you've played it you played it so retail has to chase the second-hand price to shift the inventory. It'll be interesting to see how it's sorted out long-term because it can't go on really...
Great price !! Been waiting for sub £20 and here it is. Snapped up. Cheers :-)

Far Cry 3 was probably my favourite game of 2012!
nice find OP, would normally go for this but have a massive back catalogue of games to get through at the moment that's for ever mounting. I'm going to hold of till I've completed a few and go for another deal when it comes up..
Yep interesting to know why the race to low prices, I'm not complaining though.
Great game, buy at this price!

Takes longer than that if you play it through properly to collect all diary back story, GPS Caches, relics, complete the optional tombs, complete all the extra challenges....then there is multiplayer.
Late

This, or Far Cry 3?

Just be warned that if you're in any way a completionist, Far Cry 3 is a massive time sink. So... much... to...do...
HOT thanks
Order placed, thankyou
Hot. Bought. Thanks OP.
Hot also dont forget the 4% quidco too
Cheers OP, Ordered.
I must play this, installed it on the day of release and never played. I got GOW judgment bug and cant put it down and now on insane having completed hardcore mode all 3 stars declassified.
I only paid £16.96,
The delivery charges are cheaper when you live in Europe outside the UK
I think there's a possibility this could come to PS Plus in the next moth or two (recent trends including Sleeping Dogs, Hitman Absolution), so it may be worthwile holding out till then if you're not too desperate to play this yet.

Not true. I've completed it 3 times and will probably do a 4th at some point just to mop up my final 2 single player achievements.
Really loved this.

Well done. I'm talking generally, and from a retail perspective. A lot of day one buyers will have finished this and traded it in within 14 days of release. I'm offering that as a reason for the price falling.

I'm with you on this one! £17.95 is not a good price. Almost every game no matter how good has gone from £45 to £5/£10 in the space of about 6-12 months, worst case 18 months. Why pay so much just to be ahead of the curve. I have a stack of about 150 games, the vast majority of which I've not yet played. I'm massively behind the curve, but for that reason I have many many games for a fraction of the price and will probably resell for similar or more than I got them for!

More like out of your bottom!

Krooner’s point still stands. What will MS/Sony do to prevent the “bottom” falling out of the games market and reduced profits for their publishers. The answer is unfortunately the “always on DRM” solution from XBOX that “can” block second hand games or SONY’s ORIBIS authentication system.
Again the savvy consumer loses through higher prices

Xbox no to second hand games
Sony Orbis

Haha, how would you explain it then?
