Once again, that's why I said from a fiscal point of view. Anything that does not have to do with pure numbers is irrelevant.
If you don't care about the overall perspective then that's fine, but you don't need to repeat yourself when I've known since my first quoted reply of you in this thread that you were only commenting from a fiscal sense.
I realize that I've been focusing on the other facets of the question that was proposed, while you only commented on how much money would be saved in comparison to other combinations, so a reminder isn't necessary. I still think these other factors are more important than a reminder of how these deals work out quantitatively, as almost no game purchase is ever solely based on one thing.
Even in a fiscal sense, you might want to consider that some games (in this case I'd say Abyss) do retain or increase value, but it's a hard thing to predict. As someone recently posted, The Show can be traded for $42, which is a pretty big deal as well since you could theoretically earn more credit than the net value of it in this deal if the game doesn't satisfy you after a few days of playing.
