You just answered the whole point of my post... The resell value.

People post about wanting a physical disc so they can cherish it and play it for years.. Hell no, they just want to trade it in.

If GOW Saga was broken up into separate discs for 1+2, 3, and Origins, then you could trade it in for more than the collection by itself sells for. You honestly think the devs are that stupid (yes, sometimes they are)?

And about the harddrive space...what the hell do you think that's actually for?? Sitting empty and looking pretty? No. It's for downloads. Usually FULL GAME titles. Why else would they make such a bigass harddrive in systems? Last time I checked, our games saves don't take up 5gb a slot..

EDIT: this post wasn't directed at you Quagmilion. Understandable post you gave.

Yay.

1.Hard drive space.
2.Seeing the actual disk in your collection.
3.Resell value.

The case of download vs physical has been solved.

Now, back to what matters.......Anyone get a coupon that didn't earlier?

Pro member here. Still no coupon. Got a deal that says "ts and Get One Pre-owned Product of Equal or Lesser Price Free." No idea what ts means.

Also, Origins is available at Best Buy for $20 for those interested. I'm waiting for $10, but I've got 4 Best Buys in the area and all of them have +4 copies. Even the crappy, run-down one.

Personally, I've never understood the argument on physical over digital copies of games...

Many people argue that it's because "when the world of gaming goes all digital in yadda yadda years, I want to be able to pop in my game and play it, and not rely on some server to let me play what I spent MY money on!"

Bullshit. Everyone just wants a physical disc for "security" in case they DO ultimately get tired of it, and want to sell it off somewhere to make back a portion of what they originally paid. I know I'm not the only one thinking this either..

And TO that stated argument above: it's not like some major epidemic is going to happen that deletes all your downloaded games of your console. I'm sure in 20 yrs when whatever is out, you can boot up your old 360 or PS3, if it's still working respectively, and still play whatever full game download is on your harddrive.


Not so. Unless I absolutely hate a game I bought, I wouldn't resell it. I don't hate GoW at all, so I just want the disc just because it's a physical copy. I always go physical unless the game is download only.

I like physical copies because I am a videogame collector and I like the way the case looks on my shelf more than the way the zeros and ones look inside my hard drive that will eventually wear out and crash someday.

But at this price, no one can complain about digital vouchers. These prices are more than fair.

Fuck! this offer wont show up. and even if it will it seems like you need to find one magical store that has all the games you want in it, so you can buy them in a single transaction.

Tell me how I can download the halo 2 maps that didn't transfer when my old hdd was about to die.

There is no way without the multiplayer disc, which is still missing maps. So if you buy games from a company and they shut down and/or cut off service and ur hdd/ssd goes, you're fucked.

Oh well. No coupon, yet. Maybe they are, still, going through the members' list. PUR Pro here.

Free member here, no coupon.

And if all the games are scattered around at different Gamestops, you could always just buy the collections you want without using your coupon or giving out that you're a PUR member. At the final store you get to, just return and rebuy all the games using your coupon. This will cost you more in fuel/time, but you still end up ahead in money saved depending on how much you're buying.

fucking coupons, i tell ya. why can't they just have this be a normal sale and state that you must be a PUR member to get the sale price? Instead they have to hide away some stupid coupon on the PUR website that most people never go to.

I better get this goddamn coupon or I'm going to flip my shit.

Didn't receive the coupon and I've had Pro for a few years now. Buy a lot as well but mostly with trade in credit. Unfortunately I purchased the Ico Collection so that might be a reason (if there is one) why I didn't receive the coupon. I just deleted it from "games I have" in my Power Up Rewards library with hopes it might trigger the coupon.

Pro member but no coupon.

I'm almost glad. This would rape my backlog and my wallet.

I need 11 more games to play like I need a hole in the head. But all that for $65 would be a hell of a deal.
