Um...who's the one bitching? Probably the one screaming profanity and telling us their personal issues with this site, I'd wager.
bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch.
I guess I need a CAG break because the complaining in EVERY thread is really getting to me.
You can't point to the past and assume that's the current situation. They did set the standard (which I mentioned already BTW) but are now competing against themselves.
It's not just you man. This thread is filled with ludicrous replies. Best Buy has been setting the retail standard of video game sales for many years. A lot of people can't see anything past themselves though.
So your advice is what, to not be competitive for the next two years?
They're not going to have crazy blowout replacement sales while many of still have GCU into 2020.
Eh I just think you guys are butthurt about the ending of GCU, act all melodramatic about it, and will come running back the moment they have a good sale. it.
Then he'd have to use the $100 at Best Buy. On what...games? Lol
Not really, you have to buy a Samsung TV and an Xbox. You'd save a lot more than $100 buying the TV elsewhere.
Disagree, lots of great prices on some bigger releases.
Which deals here haven't already been offered countless times before? Would you consider these "Black Friday" prices relative to last year's BF and this year's sale prices thus far? Objectively, I don't see how anyone could.
I got it for $8 on PSN many months ago and was in the same boat. Quite honestly the story mode (lasts idk, like 4 or 5 hrs? maybe less) is worth the $8 alone. The voice acting is cringy at times but it could've gone far worse. At the very least, it works. The situations they put you in are actually pretty cool, save for a couple mundane parts. If you enjoy the sport, I'd say go for it.
Debating getting Madden for 7 bucks.
Only if Amazon price matches someone else.
Best Buy looks fine
I've seen this report before. But have we considered that it was the GCU program and high profile with gamers that helped boost it back up? I don't think it's a coincidence that I see this increase in revenue during the same time me and other gamers start shopping there more religiously. With GCU gone, many of those customers who brought them out of the red will be gone too.
Someone, probably Amazon, will be ready to swoop in and revive those high spending customers. Solely thanks to GCU, I have bought a washer/dryer combo, an LG 65" 4k TV, a laptop, and some home security hardware within the last 3 years. That's over $10k. I was able to see those demoed because I was there to pick up gaming stuff. Now, I won't be there when I need my next TV or appliance.
I want Detroit but I think its gotta get cheaper in the near future.
Oh, no doubt about it. Heavy Rain and Beyond Two Souls were both laughably cheap within less than a year of their respective releases. I just think games like that don't have a lot of staying power in the minds of gamers, whether it's a success early on or not.
If this is BB at their best, I think it's time to start writing the eulogy. These are just the same prices over and over again, and even PSN has been undercutting these prices. The notion they are advertising these as Black Friday prices is pretty insulting.
I feel like their strat is to overwhelm customers with many games "on sale" but keep the prices high, in hopes that customers will say "well I have to get something during this sale" - half these games will see massive price drops in the coming months. Hold strong.
I know I am for GoW. It'll be $30 on Amazon in a couple weeks, I can feel it.
Yup. I was gonna buy it but nope.
It was $24 in Dec 2017 lmao. Didn't even have to look very hard. I swear I saw it for $17 during a flash sale but i'd have to keep looking to confirm. WIth these prices, they're essentially charging you for the free NEXT update that everyone else gets (got my copy dirt cheap at Best Buy in March).
A rather scumbag move IMO, but the business rationale behind it makes sense.
It wasn't, $50 is MSRP
Down to $35.11!
And prior to the switch the complaint was nintendo wouldnt put many games in the store from 3rd parties..
All they are doing (nintendo/steam/apple/android/sony/etc) are giving people the ability to put their game out there for the masses to see.
I agree. Not trying to imply they are being nefarious as Steam has been accused of. I just think it's a poor business practice. There needs to be a middle ground, which would involve a healthy amount of curation. Nintendo has historically done a great job with this, then stopped halfway through the 3ds's life when they started putting horrible fodder on the eshop. I'm always up for new and inventive games, but since Nintendo obviously knows what the difference between a good and bad game is, they need to be more involved and more picky.
If you were looking for a tent in Wal-mart and there were literally hundreds of brands ranging from Coleman all the way down to every garage-dwelling small business, customers would have a more stressful time figuring out the best options. The bubble would grow, sales and consumer confidence falls, and some of even the best tent makers would go out of business. This is where Wal-mart comes in as a buyer-curator to ease the process. A little market research should be done before selling to customers. Nintendo does not seem very interested in this in regards to the eShop, and that's disappointing.
That's how it's come to having Astro Bears headlining every sale. It's gross and reminds me of the Apple app store from 5 years ago (idk what it's like today)
