I would pay whatever the developers needed to allow you to sort or even hide items from your download list.  

Sony is waiting for a more powerful machine (probably PS5) before they introduce processor intensive tasks like sorting and filtering lists and changing PSN names.  That's the real next gen mind blowing experience i'm looking forward to.

I just called my gamestop about trading a 360 towards a ps4 and they had no idea what I was talking about.

My experience is that Gamestop employees learn about their sales a day or two after the general public does.

I dont know how some of you sit on so much credit. I would have spent it all in a week.

I'm waiting for a great sale...which doesn't happen at Gamestop.

Wow 73 games!? Man, its days like this when I regret being a bit of a "hoarder/collector" - I only end up trading in games I've got an extra copy of or something.  Sometimes I'll trade 'em in if I haven't played it yet so I can just pick it up cheaper down the road, but I should probably do that this time since it might be the last we ever see of "flip" days @GS.

A lot of the games I got rid of I never even played.  Since the new consoles came out last year, I have gotten pretty brutal on my purchasing habits and trade-in habits since it's become very apparent to me that i'll never get around to most games and my backlog will continue to grow either with free stuff from PS Plus or GWG or with new games that I want to play now.  I figure if I ever really want to get back to an older game I already had (which is unlikely for multiple reasons), I can just re-buy it.  Even if I re-buy 10% of those games, i'm still ahead because of the 90% I won't re-buy.  Plus, most games continue to dwindle in price, so the re-buy price might be the same or lower than my trade-in value.

When does the store update?

 

And I just went to that link above and bought Bioshock 2 Ultimate, but it charged me the full price, so how do I get a credit?

I hate it when people whine about paying a higher price when things go on sale.  Just be satisfied that you got it a few minutes before the rest of us.  That should be worth a premium.




#12025338 PS4 with Infamous SS and 3 month PS Plus for $399.99 at Gamestop

Posted by WNYX585AM on 20 August 2014 - 10:49 PM

No it's not.  500 GB hdd is no where near large enough for the PS4 with us going into the digital age where everything is downloaded onto the hard drive now.  Some PS4 games are 50 GB+, and that means you would need more than 100 GB of free space just to play that one game. The PS4 only comes with 407 GB of free space according to IGN.

 

 

As for the  PS4 bundle, I would like to see that White Destiny PS4 bundle, with a 1 TB HDD for $399 to $450 (or a holiday bundle with 2 games or 2 controllers) than this bundle.

I understand your point, but even if all you have are the largest games installed, you would have room for at least seven of them at one time and most games are significantly lower than 50 GB in size (even retail games).  It's nice to have a bunch of games installed, but do you really need dozens of games at your fingertips all at once?  Retail discs install in a very short time (especially since you can play while installing).  The hassle of re-downloading is a fair argument, but still not enough (at least for me) to say that 500 GB is too small.  Obviously, larger is preferable, but it's not like the 500GB hard drive is a fatal design flaw.

Does this have the play and charge stuff or just the basic controller.  I had trouble figuring it out.  Is the price premium for the design only?

PS+ NA August Lineup includes
PS4: Road Not Taken, Fez
PS3: Crysis 3, Proteus
Vita: Metrico, Dragon's Crown

I'm glad Metrico is free since it's sale probably would have been pretty poor otherwise.  I don't know much about it, but a game based on numbers and charts isn't going to get most people very interested.  I'm looking forward to it.

Sure would be nice if the sales ran for more than a few hours and people had time to get what they want. 

To be fair, he wasn't necessarily complaining.  I'll bet some people were hoping for a PS Plus announcement before pulling the trigger on some of the sale items.

yea noticed the cross buy but dont trust sony.  + seen how the game was  less then 4 on steam  a while back. Not really sure if its worth 14.... and its a very short game   many reviews say can beat the game within 10 to 12 hours .   

 

 

Also love how they say  get it for  BOTH  but  list  3  systems   :)

10-12 hours to beat any game seems pretty decent - especially if it is a lower priced title.  There are plenty of AAA games that take half that to beat.  Of course, time to beat should be only one of many quality judgment factors.

Yes, developers do need to make money and I have no problem with that fact. In fact, I refuse to buy used games due to the fact that developers don't get any of the money from used games. So I am the last person in these forums you need to preach that line too. That said, the difference in price on the PC side vs console side, for most indie titles, is nothing short of insane. Console gamers are getting raped on indie games. Buying indies on consoles, you might as well be walking out back, starting up your BBQ and throwing money into it. 

 

Oh well, to each thier own. If you want to spend $15-20 bucks on a game that you can easily buy for $1.00 or less, just so you can play the game on a console instead of a PC, then so be it. Its your money. Again, I have no problem with developers making money, but I do have a problem with the current pricing model for most indies released onto consoles. In my opinion, there is a very clear difference between fair pricing and pricing that is way out of whack. Indie pricing on consoles is WAY out of whack and cosole gamers are getting raped on pricing. No thanks! I will be sticking with my PC for most indie games. 

 

In other words, well just agree to disagree. 

I got raped at McDonald's yesterday.  They forgot to put fries in my bag.  My friend got raped at Walmart because their prices were higher than Target.  My other friend got raped in a dark alley and now she's scarred for life and has to go to therapy. 

 

Please use the word "rape" responsibly.  It's hard to take anyone's comments seriously when they use such hyperbolic wording.  I have never been raped and am not sure I know anyone who has, but it has a much more serious implication than simply over paying by a few dollars for a video game.  I would imagine that anyone who has been raped would feel quite insulted by how easily the word is thrown around.  I'm not trying to make anyone (including you) feel bad or insult anyone.  I just think we sometimes use terms without thinking about better or more appropriate alternatives.

I know I will be getting a PS4 next year, do you think its just worth buying the PS4 version now to start building up my collection or should I just hold off and just get the PS3 ver?

If you're not getting a PS4 until next year, I think you're crazy to buy anything for it now.  Games (both retail and digital) only get cheaper with time.  While this sale is great, sales tend to repeat if you give it enough time or, even better, it might become free on PS Plus.

#11923276 God of War III at Gamestop for $2.99 plus $1 shipping (used)

Posted by WNYX585AM on 14 July 2014 - 07:07 PM

God of War III at Gamestop for $2.99 plus $1 shipping (value shipping) - USED

 

http://www.gamestop....of-war-iii/1499

 

This is their only deal of the week (or whatever they call it).

 

I was initially going to pass until I realized shipping was only $1.  The subtotal (before tax and shipping) is $2.69 with PUR discount.

 

I wish I had known about value shipping option on prior week deals since they have had some decent deals lately.

 

FYI, the "Free" In-store pickup option will only result in a hold at the store and will not let you check out at the lower price.  Price in-store is $6.99

 

EDIT: Apparently, the $1 shipping option will not show if you use promo code CAG16.  CAG16 causes the lowest shipping option to be $3.50
