People have been saying how desperate M$ is, but I don't care. Getting the XB1 with Madden NFL 15 and Destiny for only $399 (the cost on a XB1) is a fantastic deal.

Were the 80GBs backwards compat. or was it just the 60s?
Is the 20 off the best coupon code to use on a PS4 at the moment?
Yes it is!
Were the 80GBs backwards compat. or was it just the 60s?
Both 80 GB and 60 GB PS3 were backwards compatible, Chuck, but with different effectiveness. Actually, there were three PS3 systems (20 GB, 60 GB and 80 GB) that were backwards compatible. Both the 20 GB and the 60 GB PS3s were the first systems to have BC. They were able to play almost all PS2 and PS1 games since they used a chip for BC. Both were replaced by a 40 GB and 80 GB PS3s. The 40 GB PS3s didn't have BC, and the 80 GB PS3s use software emulations to achieve BC with about an 85% compatibility rating.
20 GB and 60 GB = 90%+ BC
80 GB = 80% - 85% BC
40 GB = 0% BC
Edit: 20 GB and 60 GB = 98%+ BC

anyone else have any issues with Dragon's Crown they got off plus?
i was doing a chain run and i got one of those pop up messages. i half read it but it said "... expiring in 30 mins."
i got another message at 5 mins.
it then drops me out of the game to the xmb.
i snagged DC ps3 and DC vita mid last month for free on ps+. i also subbed in for a year starting last month.
the games still in the xmb, and relaunched right away. but now im wary.
none of my chain run was saved.
the only thing i can think that might have niggled the psn gods was i took off the 'auto renew' option in the PS+, but i still have 10 - 11 months to go.
I got the same "content expiring in 30 minutes" message 2 days ago on the PS3. My Plus doesn't expire probably until the PS5 comes out in 7-10 years from now. I quickly saved, quit the game and then rebooted it and haven't seen the message since, though, I have finished the game since then. I've had this message once or twice before last year while playing with different games. Just quit out and reload the game, and you should be fine...as long as your Plus subscription wasn't ending on that particular day, which yours wasn't.

I was in but cant figure out how to input the coupon code. All I see is a gift certificate option
This is from a post on Slickdeals. This poster got them to work, and was showing everyone there how. Check the highlighter part below. Good luck:
Look below the cart listing, should say whether or not the coupon has been accepted or if there's an issue. I had to create my account, then log in, check out, then select PayPal at the payment method selections screen. After I authenticated to PayPay it took me back to the site and the coupon was applied.

I thought is was buy.com which had all the credit problems before they merged with rakuten. All should be safe at this point.
It's safe if you purchase it from the Buy.com seller. The last deal was by Red Dot, and when people use the Visa Checkout option for it, Rakuten saved their credit card information on their website, which is not safe. In general, you don't want any website to save your card information, including Amazon, even if you use an anonymous credit card. One should check out with Paypal whenever possible to minimize people from stealing your card information.
R4L: Try it again. No one has any trouble checking out with Paypal so far. You put in the 2 codes on Rakuten first, then use Paypay at the checkout screen.
Anyway. I think I've spent enough time on this deal and post. I just wanted to let everyone here and fellow CAG members know of this great deal. You guys can figure the rest out from reading my posts above. Get in before the Slickdeals peeps get it all...again. Good luck guys!

PS4 Controller $35 at Rakuten via Buy.com Free Shipping New Customer Only
NEW10 for $10 off new customer.
LABORDAY10 for free shipping.
Credit to Slickdeals. Hurry before they're gone like the last time, but with the unsecured Visa Checkout on Red Dot instead of Buy.com here. You can checkout with Paypal if you are worried. It's safe, effective and convenience.
Get this just in time for Destiny, which is out on September 9th.

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't invest $163 of my own money, hassle with Paypal, and take the time to send it to some random CAG for nothing, especially when that CAG will probably just turn around and sell it for big profit anyway.
These are going for $300-400+ on eBay, he could easily sell it there himself, but offers it to us for a lot less and you guys act like he is being unfair. Don't be stupid.
What do you expect from a bunch of CAG members? Seriously, $200 is still a hundred dollars or two less than what's on Ebay. If you don't like his offer, than just move on. He's not doing anything that's "uncool" to a fellow CAG member, unless you want to pay up to $400 for one on Ebay.

Does Dragon's Crown take a while to warm up? I'm an hour or two in, and I thought I'd love the game, but so far it seems a little slow/repetitive and button-mashy. I chose a Fighter, so maybe that has something to do with it.
Which class are you using Josh? Dragon's Crown, surprisingly, is one of my favorite games so far this year, and I just started playing it a week ago. Some of the classes are more difficult to start out with. Try the Fighter. He's the easiest to play with, and you can still use powerful spells with magic scrolls equipped.
As you level up, you'll get better armors and weapons, and you'll have access to more powerful, higher level allies when you resurrect them. It's a fantastic co-op games as well if you have someone to play with. I've been soloing it, though, and it's still one of favorite games.

Both Vesperia and Xillia are poop. Playing Xillia 2 right now, just started and hoping it's far better than the crappy first game. I think Graces F is better than Abyss, but to me Abyss has the best ending to any Tales game.
Anyhow, Graces F is probably the funnest game I have experienced on PS3, with the PS3's lack of quality JRPGs. Now, I said "funnest", not the best. The best games on PS3 would have to go to the Souls series.
I beg to differ. Vesperia and Xillia are two very top quality games.
