Wasn't Deadpool delisted?  Can't even buy it at the moment but it's in the sale.

That seems like a perfect PS Plus candidate, but this sale and the fact that it's Activision probably eliminate that from happen- at least for quite some time.

Ugh, Xbox One with $50 card and controller for $350? Hard to pass up. GF got a nice bonus check from work today too and I totally have just enough to buy this today before payday on Friday but,..........

 

I shouldn't. All I want to play on it is Rare Replay (which I can get elsewhere) some older 360 games (have a 360 still) and Halo 5 (which I felt burned on Halo MCC when I had an XB1 last year, sold it to pay post-grad bills when I was jobless)

 

Oh well. Too much to play on PS4/WiiU/3DS right now for me anyway.

You should get it.  That's what Sugar Mamas are for.

Really wish they had XBL 12 month cards for $40 as well. I need to re-up both my PSN and XBL really soon, but I know Xbox is coming up sooner and $40 for PSN doesn't exactly have me jumping for joy. 

XBL deals happen every day for about $30 on various sites.

Very tempted on the Gold. I've been reading reviews, but it seems like the surround is getting mixed reviews. Anyone have a pair and care to comment? Also, does it work with movies?

It sounds great for this price point.  I have some higher end Turtle Beach headphones that sound better, but you get what you pay for.  These are simulated surround, so it's not full 5.1 or 7.1 but sounds close.  I don't think you'll find anything much better for $100 or less.  I can't comment on the surround for movies since I use mine strictly for gaming.

This is CAG. You literally have people buying up Amiibo's NOT TO PLAY WITH but to collect. In the box. Mint in the box. Sorry, this is a collectors mentality. It's why so many people here are against digital games over physical because man, they just need a sweet collection to look at.

 

Nintendo games hold their values. Releasing select/players choice lines proves my point. They are still sold at $20-$30 (...which is MSRP, did you know that?). They don't drop to $8 like Titanfall just did (among other titles). Did Titanfall get MSRPed dropped to $8? No. Stores are trying to clear out dead stock.

There are a lot of people here that are just looking for low priced games and are not concerned with resale value and don't plan to sell or trade their games.  The dilemma for people like me is that I can now get a WiiU for about the same cost as an Xbox One or PS4 (not to mention older consoles which are cheaper).  I can also get a much greater number of games at a much cheaper price for non-Nintendo systems.  Since I only have a limited amount of time, why would I be willing to pay nearly full MSRP for Nintendo games rather than buying Titanfall for $8?

 

I'm not saying the WiiU is overpriced or that even the games are overpriced.  I am simply saying that since Nintendo's games and consoles are much less likely to go on sale, it makes it a difficult value judgment regardless of any perceived value for resale or trade-ins.
