Just saw this, thought I'd share it for those who missed it during the 2012 GameStop sale. Also, the lack of sales tax for some (Pennsylvania sucks!) will be further incentive:

Yeah having to pay sales tax on Amazon purchases here in PA sucks... I might order this.

My backlog is so huge though that I'd probably never get around to playing it.

I've been paying NY sales taxes for a couple of years now - 8.75% - and it actually has cut down a bit on my spending for some whim purchases. Or I just go Newegg.

Thank god I live in Oregon and not in California anymore. Luckily even when I was living in CA AZ didn't charge tax.

Same here. I actually didn't renew my Prime membership b/c of how much less I've been using the site.

B&M retailers matching the big online guys + Target's awesome Red Card (5% off + free shipping on everything) have both really cut into how much shopping I do w/ Amazon.

How do these games stack up against the Ratchet and Clank games? I wanted to get the R&C Collection, but have also been curious about the Jak series.

They are both great games. Hard to say which one is better. Although I wasn't a big fan of Jak II, but Jak 3 was definitly worth it. While all three R&C titles in the collection are great. I would get both if you can.

Jak & Daxter - awesome 3D platformer, no guns/weapons, easy platinum trophy

Jak 2 - one of the most frustrating games I have ever played, wouldn't be quite as bad if there were actually check points in the game, completely changed (for the worse) what was good about Jak & Daxter, added guns, took out most of the platforming, added in vehicles and some racing

Jak 3 - better than 2, but too much vehicle and not enough platforming IMO

R&C is better IMO, but the Jak games are still very good. I liked the Sly games the best FWIW.

Thanks for the responses! Looking around online I'm reading mixed reactions to the Jak games whereas nothing but praise for the R&C Collection so I might just go with R&C.

Jak is a mixed bag but still very worthwhile at $15. R&C is better. Sly is even better. You can't go wrong with any of these collections.

Played the Sly Collection last year and loved loved Sly 1. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy 2 and 3 as I found them repetitive and boring. Really excited to get the R&C Collection as I've seen them compared to ACIT and TOD, some of my favorite PS3 games.
