Good deal for a very good game. With $24.99 purchase, you get free shipping so I just bought a $10 psn card to get free shipping.

No it isnt. Batman Arkham City is different than Batman Arkham Origins. I already have Arkham City.

That's Arkham City. But you bring up the point that Arkham Origins will probably make its way to PS+ eventually. This is a good deal, but I'm in no huge rush to play this game, especially with all the mixed reactions. Though I'll probably want to play it before Arkham Knight anyway.

At that price I was about to buy it. But then realized its on the US website not the Canada one (still 39.99). Ah well..

I doubt it is "garbage". It may not be on par as the asylum or city but it still has a pretty solid 76 metacritic score (7.8 user score)..... 4.0 Amazon review score (405 reviews).... 4.6 Best Buy review score (222 reviews). I remember when lot of people were ripping God Of War Ascension as it had 80 metacritic score. I bought it on sale and didn't have huge expectations. When I played it, I enjoyed the game a lot. Sure it wasn't on par with God of War 3 or 2 but it was still a very good game. I think Arkham Origins will meet my expectations especially since it is only $19.99.

You also get the Batman: Arkham Origins collectible steel case for free with the purchase. I am not sure what exactly that is but Best Buy adds it on for free when you add it to your cart.

I like the game quite a lot. Does some cool stuff that none of the other Arkham games have.. Technically it is not as solid as the Rocksteady games though.
