Preorder for Batman: Arkham Knight digital is $20 cheaper than physical

This sponsored post is produced by Dealzon.

Just this week Rocksteady Studios announced the October 14th release date for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight. It’ll be available on the Xbox One and PS4 consoles for $59.99 and also on PC but the question is at what price. Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop are all taking preorders for the PC Physical copy at $59.99, but just yesterday Green Man Gaming priced Batman Arkham Knight at only $49.99. Better still, GMG has a 20% off coupon code that’ll knock an additional $10 off, getting the Batman Arkham Knight Steam Key down to $40.

The $20 price disparity between the PC Physical and Digital is huge. Either digital games are becoming the preferred delievery for publishers, or GMG simply has the pricing wrong. If that’s the case this deal could get pulled, and so ordering know and locking in at $40 would make a pretty cheap preorder. While Steam has a placeholder link for Arkham Knight, the game is not available for preorder yet there, so checking them will not give the confirmation of the $49.99 digital list price.

In other PC gaming news, Titanfall made its debut on Tuesday. Last week there was a solid 20% preorder discount at GMG, but now post release there’s no discount but rather a $10 Credit or $7 Cash Back offer.
