Is PS+ actually worth it? I'm kinda a new PS3 user so I'm not really sure. The Last of Us + 3 month PS+ sounds tempting.

If your new to the PS3, I highly recommend PS+. It gives you a good library of games to start out with and more added each month. Plus tons of other stuff like cloud storage, discounts, and early demo/beta access.

 

 

 

PS+ is worth it especially now with Deus Ex and Saints Row 3 soon. E3 hits soon probably get a bunch of new titles too.

Yes, especially if you don't have a PS3 library.

 

 

Thanks guys, can any of you explain to me how games that come with PS+ work? I'm assuming you can only access them while you still have PS+ and that you have to download them first. I know they always add new games each month but are those games only up for that month or are they playable as long as you have PS+?

All games you download or add to your download list will be available for you to redownload or play as long as you are PS+.

FWIW, if you're interested in Plus you should consider getting a 30 day code from ebay or trading for one here. Infamous 2, Little Big Planet 2 and Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One rotate out before The Last of Us releases and are probably worth the 3-4 bucks a short code will cost you.

Even if you don't want to download it right away add it to your purchase list and it will be free with PS+ as long as you have an active subscription.

Is Best Buy EVER gonna update their TIVs for new games?  Resident Evil Revelations for the PS3 still isn't listed on their website.  Has anyone been able to trade it in yet?  If so, how much was the TIV?

 

Unfortunately, if it's not in their system then they just give you a generic $1 value.  Sometimes it takes them a while for BB to enter new games into their system, and some collections/GOTYs/games never make it at all...

 

Up on the site for $10 base value. So $20 right now with the 100% bonus in place.

In for a 3ds XL, can't wait any longer. Got $10 in certificates, plus I'm tired of Metro Last Light. I'll get $28 for it but oh well :/

Basically, Sony gets the rights to "give away" (more like rent) certain games for a fixed amount of time and you have the ability to "purchase" them at this point and time. Every game sticks around for its own amount of time (I think 2 weeks is the fastest and 1 year is the slowest), but there are always new games being added. Everything you purchase is yours to play / enjoy during your subscription, which starts to have serious value over time. Not a whole lot more to it, though I would like to remind you that the PSP / PSV games can be downloaded without a Vita and will be FULLY USABLE if you renew when you get a Vita or simply have Plus at that time. 

 

As far as the current offerings go, it's a bit of a toss up. Right now Sony is offering a free 30 day trial via Home (I don't use home, so I think it isn't around till E3 next week). If you're quick / lucky, you MIGHT be able to grab that before the store updates (so you can get inFAMOUS 2 / LBP 2 / All 4 One), though even if you aren't... it might be cost effective to look into. I believe someone in the PSN thread said they don't stack with a current sub, so you would basically get a worthless code if you subbed prior. Also that bundle appears to be a mere 8 dollars savings, so this is something else to consider.

Does anyone know if this 100% trade bonus will work on my original 3ds? Or is only physical game media..?

Just a warning to anyone trading games in, they removed the game kiosk to make room for the Samsung display. So now it's even more of a nightmare trading in at customer service. If I didn't hate Gamestop so much I'd just trade in there because at bby it takes triple the amount of time.

The 100% trade in never applies to consoles, only video games.

They've been doing trade ins at customer service for awhile now at my local store. Never have a problem.

I was wondering if my $10 off 29 and over coupon will stack with b1g1 50% off.  I know it won't with the GCU 10%.  Anyone know?

Preordered ACNL alongside a $25 Rewards Zone certificate, bringing it down to about $10. Anyone know how BB is with their digital download releases? I'm a little anxious to start playing NL, so the waiting is killing me! :P

Well this might be Best Buy being dumb, but if you look at PS3 Consoles there is a blank spot with a messed up SKU for $299.99. New bundle announced at E3?

Would Amazon price match the 3DS XL deal or is that a no go?

It is just the PS3 500GB legacy bundle with free blu-ray remote control.

They won't because they don't sell the 3DS XL.

I traded in Sleeping Dogs last week and they didn't give me the 10% GCU bonus.  Claimed it didn't apply with the 100% bonus, which I knew to be false.  Ended up calling corporate and getting transferred back to the local store.  The people I spoke with at the local store seemed oblivious to the existence of GCU let alone how to address the problem.  When I traded in my copy of Assassin's Creed 3 a few months ago at the kiosk, it went super-smooth without a single issue - and I got the 10% GCU bonus.

The people up at customer service probably aren't trained to do it, not that it's hard. I traded in a game last week and one of the geek squad guys handled it. I talked him through it and he still never added my 10%. He claimed I was at my limit. He couldn't grasp the concept so I took the gift card and left.

I work up at Geek Squad guys, they have thrust a good 70% of the store on us by combining us and customer service, so please be pleasant if your receiving pleasant service. It's been a stressful nightmare how many things are on our plates right now. I don't speak for the company of course in any formal or official way, so don't take this as a corporate thing or public statement/factual numbers (I don't want this coming back on my butt, lol, so just a disclosure). :no:  

 

I just picked up TLOU with my $15 in RWZ so excited to play through that and ~$40 is the most I budget a month for games (So also yes, yes, and yes to the comment about PS+)

Is the 3DS XL worth it at $175? I have never owned any of the DS' a lot of games on them that I want to play. Should I finally pay or wait for it to drop more?

Still not clear whether the GCU $20 RZ cert stacks with preorder of TLOU and Pulse Elite bundle. Any employees know?

@FIF

As long as you purchase TLOU w/i the guidelines of the $20 promo you get the $20. The promo for the pulse happens on the receipt at the time of purchase.

 

Also, 

The 100% will go thru 6/15 per in-store signs, seems kinda short based on previous 100% but the could just extend it & put up new signs with another date.

The bundle has a distinct SKU online and may not trigger the RZU promo (or so I fear).
