Hitman 1 was on GwG. I could import the levels to Hitman 2 for free.
Hitman 2 is frequently on sale. Got the Gold Edition for â‚¬15 during the Black Friday sale.
I wouldn't call that expensive.
Sadly I must have missed Hitman when it was on GWG, because it's not on my GWG ready to install list. Currently, there seem to be only 2 methods to buy Hitman 1 on Xbox One, at least digitally. The first is a GOTY edition of just Hitman 1 which currently costs a whopping $60. The 2nd method is to buy the Hitman 2 GOTY Legacy pack, it costs the same $60 but you get to play the Hitman 1 missions in the upgraded Hitman 2 engine, but it doesn't seem to include the Hitman 2 missions, for those you need to spend another $60 currently, for $120 total. Hitman 3 of course costs another $60, but it is new, so that price is fine. But Hitman 1 and 2 are both way overpriced currently, you should not have to pay $120 to get both Hitman 1 and Hitman 2 digitally, not when Hitman 1 released in 2016 and Hitman 2 in 2018.
I guess I'll have to wait on them to go on sale again, or look at the physical pricing for Hitman 1 and 2.
Edit: Ok, so physical is alot cheaper thankfully. Hitman 1 Definitive Edition, which includes all the base game missions plus all of the paid DLC, is $26 on Amazon US currently, much less than the $60 that the equivalent digital version currently costs. Hitman 2 though is still very overpriced even on physical. Base game costs $45 for the US version on Amazon, though there is a Europe import version on Amazon US which is $28, I assume it works in US since there is no region locking. However, if you want a physical copy of the Gold Edition, the one that includes the Hitman 2 DLC's, it costs $85 on Amazon US currently.
