Gents, I wanted to mention that I was able to stack the facebook promo with the +50% extra tiv and 50% off sony hd promo.

Code is EBC3037626. Gets you +$10 when you trade in 3 thing worth more than $2 in credit. Employee gave me no problems at all when processing, seemed glad to be doing something other than telling Halo fans to stay in line haha.

Didn't the Facebook promo end 11/4? GS is running their own 3/$10 until 11/18.

Sweet deal, I'm having trouble choosing between Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter. I'm interested in both Platforming and shooters.

Any insight on choosing between both from someone who's played both series?


Ratchet and Clank is probably the better choice overall. Their games tended to be a bit more consistent in quality and pacing. Jak and Daxter 2 is widely regarded as the worst/weakest in their respective series.

Although frankly, I would suggest picking up both collections. While the coupon is single-use, you can get as many of the collections as you please when you use it. And while I would rank Ratchet and Clank above Jak and Daxter, both series are still quite solid, and these high-def collections have been getting pretty solid reviews. With a 50% off coupon, you could acquire both collections for $30 or less. It's well worth it to get playable versions of these classic PS2 series in high definition.

I got the e-mail for my coupon yesterday, and have already printed it out. The next time I go by one of my local GameStops I'm going to use it. The Journey collection is my must-buy title, but I'm sorely tempted to pick up the Ratchet and Clank/Jak and Daxter collections as well.

I'm a little torn on the Killzone collection. I don't have any of the Killzone games, so its a great value, but I'm not sure if its really worth it.

I got a code in email. starts with EBC, I went to a store, the cashier entered it, but he said it did not work because I am not a pro member. Is it true that I have to be pro member?

Thanks

Id probably get the Resistance trilogy if that was already out and included in this, but I really didn't like Killzone when I played it on the ps2. So i'm not sure about that one.

One of the better games I played on the ps2 that never got a sequel was Psi-Ops. Game as fun.

No where on the coupon or the site does it say you need to be pro. I haven't attempted to use mine yet, but I'm just a Power Up Rewards (Black Card) holder. I haven't payed to go pro. I'll keep you updated on its effectiveness.

Thanks for your insight. However, I don't plan on spending more than $5 on either title--since I'll be combining it with the +50% Trade in bonus for this. In terms of storyline, would you say that Jak and Daxter 2 can hold its own despite the weak aspects of gameplay?

I got my coupon yesterday. I went to the GS by work and they only had the opened "new" copies. This time I didn't care as no other GS showed them in stock. Luckily the codes all worked or I would raised hell on the manager who sold them to me. I got GoW Saga, Killzone Trilogy and Infamous collection.

Sweet deal, I'm having trouble choosing between Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter. I'm interested in both Platforming and shooters. However, I heard R&C kept it's playstyle exactly the same, so i feel like i might get bored with it--while Jak changes it up. Oh and J&D's ~130 trophies compared to R&C's 35 is making me lean toward Jak.

Any insight on choosing between both from someone who's played both series?


It really comes down to do you want a more linear platform shooter franchise or a more open world type franchise. Ratchet and Clank is more linear. Jak 2 and 3 tried to be more GTA clone type games with some platforming and shooting elements. They both take place in the same world, so 3 seems like an expansion pack to 2 to me. Jak 1 was not even a shooter at all if I recall and is the most pure platform game of the ones on both disks.

Due to the differences in weapons and the upgrades they have in the Ratchet and Clank games, I would argue that it has more varied gameplay across the 3 games. With that said, Jak 1 is night and day different from 2 and 3 (however those are all but identical).

Got the coupon this morning and went to a local GS which had the four I was interested in.

Uncharted did not ring up on sale.
Infamous was $15, Journey was $15, and Killzone was $20. The copy of Journey was the only one in the store so it was open and on the shelf but the others were new.

As an aside, I traded in my copy of Infamous 2 that I got at Sears for $10 a couple of weeks ago. I got $9 base + 4.50 from the coupon + 90c from PUC so I got $14.40 in trade towards the $14.99 Infamous collection. If you have the odd scenario that I did where I have Infamous 2 but not 1, you can pick up 1 and the DLC for 50c, in essence.

EDIT: Store in Pearland, TX (east of 288 on Broadway)

I thought it was the worst and completely turned me off from the series. Loved Jak 1 but hated how they tried to infuse GTA into it. I didnt even bother with Jak 3 bc of it.

Got this from neogaf and another poster on CAG. Not taking any credit. (Taking out neogaf link since its NSFW.

http://www.joystiq.c...tions-nov-1-14/

http://www.poweruprewards.com/

$10 - Ico & Shadow Colossus Collection
$10 - Jak and Daxter Collection
$15 - Uncharted 1 & 2 Pack
$20- God of War Saga (or $10 for Origins, $10 for 1&2)
$15 - Infamous 1 & 2 Pack
$15 - Journey CE
$15 - Ratchet and Clank Collection
$20 - Killzone Trilogy

You should have a coupon in you poweruprewards account. Look under My account tab for this offer.

UPDATE:

SONY50 is the code to get the savings online. Have fun.


If GOW 3 was mad cheap I would honestly just have gotten 3 and Origins, as I already own 1&2 on both ps2 (barely played, then when I got a seasonal job at TRU one year I picked up the other collection at $40 then)... I just disagree with them being DLC games and i'd want physical ones that could be resold when done. And to answer my earlier question in here, I just received my code today even being a free member, so now i really have to think. I already have J&D I got for free redeeming points from Sony Playstation/Capital one at about a $20 price point.

I didn't get an email, but I checked my active offers on my account and found my coupon just sitting there. I used it to get Sotc/Ico, Jak, and Ratchet. The girl at the store asked if I wanted my coupon back in case I wanted to use it again for other titles while the sale lasts, so I'm guessing the coupon is not a one time use thing?
