In Topic: PSN Weekly Deals - 12/24: Holiday Sale Wk 4 (Proteus, DuckTales, Hotline Miam...

Well. The PSN deals for the week should be up tomorrow on the PSN blog. This is their last chance to present any discounts compelling enough to get me to use $50 in PSN money.

Not very optimistic.

I recently realized that hard copies of Technika Tune are no longer available (except on eBay) so I figure now's as good a time as any to buy it through PSN (along with a couple of Pinball tables to reach the $50 limit.)

Sorry I know this has probably been asked, but with the Storewide Cashback promo and the Playstation Plus get $10 back promo going on at the same time can I buy a year of Plus and a few other things to spend over $50 and end up getting $20 back in credit?

Oh jeez, I forgot about this.  Now that hard copies of Technika Tune are sold out, I suppose this is my best bet at getting the game.  How to fill in that extra $5, though.  Pinball tables?

Who thinks that about the first ps3?! Haha. Thing is a loud, gaudy power hungry bohemeth. Not to mention it came with an inferior controller. Much higher fail rate as well. You're right about the vita, though.

The people who insist the original PS3 is best are the ones whose primary use for the PS3 is playing PS2 games ... and running Linux, I guess.

I've also thought about cancelling my pre-order and just saving the money for now.

 

But after thinking about it.

1. There isn't going to be a price drop anytime soon.

2. It and 3 games (2 now with Watch Dogs delayed) are already 100% payed off.

3. My ps3 works perfectly fine, and it's not like I can't just use it again when I run out of games.

 

So at least in my case, It doesn't benefit me that much to cancel.

 

At this point, the aggressiveness of the manufacturers on issuing redesigns (cheaper with more reliable internals) makes me wary of buying a 1st gen model.  The Vita is getting one, what, a little over a year after its release?  The PS3 and 360 both got TWO revisions in their lifetimes, as opposed to a budget version towards the end of the cycle (like the PSOne, well I guess the 3rd versions were fairly late in lifetime.) Look at the 3DS and its two alternate configurations already on the market.

Nope, probably sold out. I just checked and you can't purchase it anymore. So unless you have a current active membership with Gamefly, the only option is to rent it and select "Keep" it.


Damn! And I'd learned about the sale that ended May 12 just a day late.
