Bad timing.  Really into Titanfall right now.  Still have a few games in my backlog.  I'm sure South Park will be $20-25 new by the time I get to it.  Would not be surprised if Payday 2 ends up being a free Games with Gold title later this year or in 2015.

It was $10 (maybe $15) on Black Friday and i've been kicking myself since then for not getting it (although I may not have even gotten around to playing it yet anyway).  I'm hoping for a similar sale on it sometime soon.

This could be beginning of massive price drops now that these games are all now considered old-gen games.

Nah, the game is over half year old.

 

Besides, if the "old gen" consoles have cheaper games, there will be a lot less incentive to upgrade to the next gen console.

This I find interesting. The $40 retail version includes the season pass and they sell a $20 digital version without it. What's interesting is that this is the first time I recall them actually doing used pricing like this on something that's a fundamentally lower value item without that code.

That's too new of a game to be on GwG. Payday 2 was a PS Plus game earlier this year.

Not a new drop but Mass Effect Trilogy is $30 new, $28 used. Only way to play ME 1 for PS3 on disk is with the retail copy.

Yep, the old COD way of remaining MSRP for 10 months with minimum sales won't work now plus with most major titles releasing in the fall BF sales makes any more than $50 ridiculous. Hell GCU has changed the mindset of slot of people $32 is the standard price in 6 weeks for any title.

Tempting, but I'm hoping/praying BioWare announces a complete trilogy set (all DLC included) for PS4/XB1 at E3. :pray:

 "the old COD way of remaining MSRP for 10 months with minimum sales won't work" because alot of the developers that made the COD brand what it is jumped ship.  If any of the recent COD games were actually good, they would still be doing the same old ways.

It was free on PS+ so that's why I'd bet it would be a GwG.  But you're right.  It probably won't be free for a while.

No the reason I said that is of the retail games made free for GwG, only 3 of them were released this decade (Sleeping Dogs, Hitman: Absolution, & Dead Island 1) with two of those being Square Enix games.

This deal is nothing mind blowing, they already had this on sale for $39.99 in the past, why not for $29.99 or better yet $19.99 now?

They've just changed models. The money used to be in retail sales. Now they do very well with DLC attach, so Activision is more open to bringing the boxed copies down in price. That drives marginal sales, and they pick up more than the "lost" revenue through DLC.

Ghosts was #2 selling game last year after GTA V, and demand for GTA was crazy. Huge hype, huge lag between games. CoD could easily go the way of Guitar Hero, but it's still a money machine for now.

Just looked it up and it was $14.99 for Sniper Elite v2 Silver Star for both consoles.  I'm thinking we might see more sales on it closer to the release of Sniper Elite 3 or hoping for something like a PS Plus freebie on it.

Thanks, I'll hold off on it for now.

That's one way of looking at it.  Another is that bad word of mouth plus indecisiveness due to the launch of next gen consoles resulted in less than stellar sales, hence prompting the fastest price cut in a CoD game ever.  Every year for the past few years they've boasted about besting their numbers from the previous year.  Didn't do that this year.

They boasted. And they called out the huge DLC sales for BLOPS2. They just couldn't call it the biggest game launch, as usual, because GTA V crushed.
