Get Batman: Arkham Origins Pre-Order at 25% Off

Honestly, young Bruce Wayne probably just needed a hug. Or an Olympic-level intensive training course on kicking criminal ass.

The Caped Crusader's newest video game Batman: Arkham Origins launches on Friday this week. While we've yet to spot price breaks for the console versions, if PC is your platform of choice, you're in luck. The UK digital retailer GMG has a little magic trick coupon that makes 25% of the price disappear, dropping your total from $49.99 to $37.50. Preorders of Batman: Arkham Origins also get you the Deathstroke DLC pack.

If you're up for some why-so-serious savings, GMG has a bundle offer with Arkham Origins plus the prior two Batman releases (Arkham Asylum and Arkham City) for $46.87 after coupon. That's still cheaper than the $50 you'd pay elsewhere for Origins alone, and you get the GOTY Editions of Asylum and City which include all the DLC packs released for each game.

For Xbox 360 gamers, there are no price break on Arkham Origins, but if you preorder from the Microsoft Store, they'll throw in a $10 Xbox gift card. It's a fairly decent offer since, unlike PC gamers, Xbox gamers rarely come across pre-order discounts or incentives on AAA titles [cue "Aww" sound effect]. There are actually several games that include the $10 gift card - especially a wide range of Xbox One titles. That could be quite useful if you've already decided your next-gen machine will be the Xbox One and you're looking to beef up your gaming library.

From now until November 22nd (Xbox One's release date) at the Microsoft Store, you'll receive a free $10 Xbox Gift Card Digital Code which can be redeemed online and added into your Xbox account. Given that Xbox Live will be converting from a point system to a dollar value system, this is a quick and easy way to add $$ into your account for titles you're already planning to buy. The code is emailed out ~10 days after the ship date. Note: when a title is released, the deal will be expired for that particular title..

The zombie apocalypse trend is not over, says 505 Games with tomorrow's release of How To Survive. If you happen to catch this today and preorder the Steam-activated PC download, you'll get a 30% instant savings discount right off the bat. On top of that, there's a 25% coupon code to drop the price from $14.99 to $7.87 (almost half price). Post release, the instant savings discount should disappear, but the coupon will work until Friday, October 23rd at 11AM Eastern.
