    REALLY want to get it but I dunno so much DLC not sure if it is worth waiting for a complete edition. But I guess it makes up for the fact that Underworld is still $30 on the marketplace.

    Do any game published by Square Enix get GOTY treatment ? I don't think they've jumped on that bandwagon never before so it's safe to think they won't now.

    Those DLC are cosmetic only, adding new kung-fu moves, outfits, weapons and/or little edge on player's stats as more melee resistance, etc.

    Campaign DLC = year of the snake, that tournament on island whatever and the nightmare in point somewhat.

    BTW there's also showing at 840 msp at certain marketplaces. I'm still on the fence as I always prefer physical stuff but I doubt to find it at 7.20€ any sooner.

    A mere 400MSP on the Hungarian marketplace, region and VPN free (so I've been told).

    400msp in hungary ? wow...might be time to create an hungarian account...
    I created a Hungarian account to buy the game for 400 MSP but don't know how to get points onto the account.

    I bought an online code for 400 points and tried to redeem but it wouldn't work on the Hungarian account.

    Anyone know how I can add points to the other account? I know you can't transfer points from one account to another so how would I do this?

    Thanks
    Hungarian Accounts only add point codes of 800 or more

    That would have been good to know before I tried to redeem a 400MSP code from amazon, or redeemed some Bing points for a 400MSP card (not that I've tried that yet, still waiting on the email) facepalm

    Thanks! toast

    Finally some info on this matter... thanks! Now I have to determine if saving 400 msp is worth having another 400 sitting on a side hungarian account (always could use to get some of the game's DLC tho)

    You need to make sure that you use either a region unlocked MSP card or a European MSP card. After I did that, it worked for me.

    I just was able to add 400 MSP that I got through Bing rewards, which I know to be region-free. So there's that.

    And I wouldn't worry about having leftover points on a Hungarian account, as they always seem to get the cheapest of these GoD sales. Look at the following gamer's blog for examples from the past sale: Wallace Suka's blog post - Games on Demand sale that require no VPN list. Update: German version of Sleeping Dogs is on sale.

    I made a Swedish account and got Sleeping Dogs for 400MSP. Had no problem adding a 400 point code to it.

    Sleeping Dogs is incredible. $20 new (on demand) is a steal.
