do you need to do anything special to activate cross buy or is it auto for qualifying games?

No. You buy one version and both are added to your download list.

Unfortunately I already have Bioshock 2 on disc and dont like fighter games :lol:. Seriously though, I dont think its too hard for them to offer the same amount of games they do now while allowing us a choice. Sure some months I may not like the choices but I can still choose the one I might play or avoid the one I already own. Thats value and a happy customer, and offering 2 games is really only costing them 1 as you can't have them both (win/win). It just seems so obvious I dont understand why they dont do it.


Because offering choices requires them to negotiate with publishers to include even more titles that may or may not be chosen by people. I may be wrong but I think after the hack, all the titles offered were first or second party developed titles which makes negotiating deals a lot easier.

I don't know if it is "so obvious", but the business logistics involved are complicated and are probably not worth the effort to them. They have enough trouble with their current system planning and deploying things.

Does anyone know if Two Worlds II is vastly inferior to the PC version? That $5 price along with no ridiculous DRM is tempting.

I really would like to pick up Rayman, but my problem is the lack of storage space on my Vita.

The fact that I would have to remove games to be able to play it is actually preventing me from picking it up.

I'm going to have to hope that the retail version will drop to $15 at some point soon so that I don't miss out on the game.

Didn't someone on here say a few pages back that Best Buy PSN codes are emailed to you? Hoping I get mine before Gungnir is no longer on sale.

Just do it. Rayman is the best game on the system by far. You can always put those older games back on later.

If I were you, I'd buy the bigger size card (if you don't already have the biggest) and sell my old one, especially if you plan to keep the games you buy.

#1 CAG rule is never buy games at launch if your main goal is to save money, that being said, what you pay for is to play the game first if you can't wait. I bet you already beat it too so don't feel too bad!

This x2.

When I could afford it I almost always jumped on pre-orders and such to make absolutely sure I could be playing ASAP. Even when my backlog was already massive. Now, that only happens for must-haves which is incredibly rare.

Any chance of a Journey sale anytime soon? Haven't really been keeping up with PSN sales but I have money in my wallet and been waiting for Journey to go on sale. Are the sales up on the store now all that's coming for this holiday or is there a chance for more?

Answer: Gamefly

They sent me Hitman & Farcry 3 on launch. Beat the latter, still working on Hitman.
I'd definitely buy Farcry 3 in the future at a lower price though because there were tons of side stuff to do.

I thought it'd at least be half off by the holidays, but I guess not. That, Sound Shapes, Papo & Yo, and Okami could use a discount.

Journey's selling VERY well and keeps winning awards and it's barely been discounted since release. They might do another small discount because of the VGAs but I wouldn't hold your breath for half off.

Capcom can be a little stingy with downloadable game discounts that aren't Resident Evil, but who knows.

Jesus Christ (its Christmas after all, ho ho ho) so many people like to complain about VIDEO GAME SALES.

Pro tip: If your not going to play the game now or in the near future...DONT FUCKING BUY IT. Games get cheaper as time goes on.

And if you want to play your fucking $5 PSN game 10 years from now buy it then it comes out at full price so you dont have to worry about losing it if you dont like Plus in a few years. Holy shit the whining...

I make more money in one year than Stotch will make in his lifetime.

How many people will respond about it being the CAG way to build up a backlog of unplayed games...only to whine about having no time to play them.
