Ubisoft's Far Cry 3 appears to be making a late move to claim the Christmas No.1 spot with a substantial price drop at two of the UK's biggest video game retailers.

Both GAME and Amazon are offering the acclaimed open-world shooter for only £22.49 on Xbox 360 and PS3.

We've already seen Square Enix enjoy a surge in sales of Hitman: Absolution thanks to retailer promotions, and with buyers looking for last minute gifts a reduced Far Cry 3 may fit the bill.

We'll have to wait until next week to find out if Far Cry 3 has what it takes to overtake the likes of Black Ops 2 and FIFA 13 to take the crown.

Let me put it this way. My sister is an AVID call of duty player and when she got black ops 2, she played for a little bit and went right back to MW3. Far cry 3 is a great game. It brings a twist to your every day shooter. It something different which I think we need these days. I highly recommend this game.

I paid £39.97 for it 20 days ago, it was one of those rare 'Must have it NAO!" moments.
Played it daily since and will probably continue to do so.
Worth. Every. Penny.

It's also one of the few games of the last couple of years that despite having 1000/1000 achievement score I'm still playing.

And there goes my willingness to buy most titles day one again, when a month is sufficient time (apparently - this, Halo, XCom, and so on) for significnt reductions to hit a title.
