The sequel to Batman: Arkham City got its October 14th release date announced just this week from WB Games. Batman: Arkham Knight is available for preorder on the Xbox One and PS4 for $59.99, but the PC listing is something of interest.
This week GameStop, Best Buy, and Amazon all have the PC physical copy listed for $59.99. However, the UK based digital retailer Green Man Gaming, is listing the Batman Arkham Knight Steam key for only $49.99. Better still, there’s a 20% off coupon code available dropping the price an additional $10.
Batman Arkham Knight is $40 after coupon H799RH-7L8NPP-RCKKT8
The coupon code is entered in at checkout. You’ll have to act on this deal over the weekend, since the coupon is set to expire on Monday, March 17th at 11 AM Eastern.
It could be Green Man Gaming made a price mistake with thier $49.99 listing, or it’s an indicator that publishers are favoring digital delivery vs. physical discs. We’ve had hints at this move when Microsoft debated removing the CD-drive in the Xbox One. Could it be that the PC physical price is really $10, or after coupon $20 more than a digital only copy? Batman: Arkham Knight is not up for sale yet on Steam, so without confirmation from them it’s impossible to say at this point.
Never the less, if Green Man Gaming got the pricing wrong on Batman: Arkham Knight this could be an opportunity to pick up the download at a $20 discount.
