In Topic: Get $175 credit towards Xbox One for trading in 250gb 360 or PS3.

I was denied the 50 dollar gift card by 2 people. How did you guys get them to do all those promos together? Still got it for 107 but a giftcatd would be nice.

I am confused by people getting denied.  Does the trade-in and purchase have to be on the same transaction?  Is the $75 coupon what's causing the $50 GC coupon to be denied?  It seems like you should be able to trade the old system and get a $100 GC plus $75 coupon, then separately go buy an Xbox One and use both the $75 coupon and the $50 GC coupon along with the trade-in gift card you got.  I haven't done it, so this is a question and not an explanation of how it should be handled.

Same boat for me.

 

With the Last of Us Remastered, can I just play this extra content if I buy it? Or do I need to progress the game? 

You can play Left Behind anytime since it is just a selection on the main menu, however, it's recommended that you play the main game first since there are spoilers and references to the main game in Left Behind.

 

As an aside, i'm kind of annoyed that Sony is exploiting the game to the level of selling MP and Left Behind separately.  Yes, the game is great, but it's time to move on instead of repackaging parts of their two year old game.

Toren is a new game coming to PS4 in two weeks:

 

 

 

 

 It's so nice to see that this isn't a retro, side-scrolling platformer.  I was sure that was what it was going to be before I watched the video.  I'm sure i'm in the minority but I have little interest in retro or side-scrolling.

The thing about the Batman season pass is that it states all the DLC will be released over the 6 month period after the game release.  That really makes it hard to defend this as content being worked on after the game release. It seems obvious some of the content being created now could be included in the base game.  

If you think this is how any DLC is planned or created, you are just fooling yourself.  Virtually all DLC is designed and planned well before the game releases and probably in the initial planning stages of the main game.  This definitely presents some ethical dilemmas about how it's handled by the developer, but it doesn't mean that DLC is inherently bad or should necessarily be included in the basic game.  These developers and publishers have certain budget and time restrictions that were planned from the beginning, so the only way to justify creating the extra content would have been to plan for the additional sales of it.  If the base game provides a substantial amount of content to justify its price, then it shouldn't matter when the DLC was devised or created or even how it's delivered (such as on disc). 

 

That being said, it's obvious that many developers and publishers abuse how DLC is handled.  Judging by past games, it seems obvious that in this case, the developer/publisher should be given the benefit of the doubt.

Wolfeinstein: Old Blood (the Prequel) is now preloadable according to Gamespot.  It's $20 on the PSN or $18 for PLUS members.  The file size is 37 GB, and the game is playable on May 5th if anyone is a fan of the series.

If the file size is an indication of how similar the length of this game will be to the base game, that's a lot of game for $20.  I'm guessing it's uncompressed music or some other odd explanation.
