Spider-Man 2 has claimed its spot at the forefront of the most anticipated lists for ardent Spider-Man and PlayStation enthusiasts, and with good reason. However, if you’re not inclined to shell out the full, and rather hefty, price tag of £70 on its launch day, there are some enticing opportunities already available.
For starters, Amazon has significantly trimmed down the preorder of the game to £62.99, complemented by a preorder price guarantee to safeguard against potential further reductions. That’s not the only deal available either, so check out the full range of options below as well.
If you do preorder through Amazon, you won’t need to pay a penny until the game ships, so you won’t be out of pocket until the game is on its way to you. This preorder deal has already gone out of stock once, so it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that it will sell out again (or Amazon will simply up the price again before launch).
If these options don’t appeal to you, you could also consider buying the game digitally. ShopTo has recently expanded its range of PSN gift card deals, including the £35 card, now available at a reduced price of £30.85. If you’re a digital owner or anyone else interested, purchasing two of these cards for a total of £61.70 could offer a fantastic deal for preordering Spider-Man 2, provided you have the funds available right now.
Alternatively, another top suggestion for those with a bit of patience is to wait for Spider-Man 2 to appear among listings from verified eBay sellers (such as The Game Collection). Once it’s available to preorder, keep an eye out for a fresh eBay discount code, similar to the ongoing WOW10 promo.
This strategy could lead to a substantial discount, especially if you act swiftly to secure your preorder (as these deals can also sell out fast). Just remember, upfront payment is necessary, making this another favorable choice for those with the game funds readily available.
