Yeah almost everything that's not awful shaky cam of a store demo station is from E3/Gamescom.  I understand it's because everyone that has this stuff already is under crazy town embargo but creating a total media blackout doesn't help sell games.

 

Even for actual game reviews, we only get snippets talking about the next-gen versions. Embargoes sure do suck.

They probably mean the CE or something. 

 

Ah, that would make a lot more sense. I couldn't care less for the Hardened and Prestige editions this time around. Way too expensive for my pockets.

I get it because they know that anything that slips out about the console is going to take on a negative spin and be used as fuel in the flame war.  Look at the resolution thing with Ghosts for example.  It's one of these things where they seem to think that will kill all excitement for the launch or something but they know that they can just make sure nothing gets out for months and people will still buy it.

 

Think I've got it narrowed down to NBA 2K14, Killzone and Rivals.  FIFA 14 looks like a nice upgrade from current gen but not nearly as much as NBA 2K14 might be and think I'll try to get Knack from this Gamefly trial since they like to ship out new releases to trial members more than actual paying customers.

Nice! Got a BOGO code!

Ordered BF and Killzone.  Not bad to get a free game.

I agree, but the lack of information is aggravating especially for new IPs, such as Knack and the aforementioned Ryse. You pretty muck know what to expect from the nth game in an established franchise or the annual sports game, but the few others are wildcards. I bet a little more info would only help promote them, since they're not getting the spotlight.

I definitely would, if the nearest Gamestop wasn't a few thousand miles away from me (I'm in Brazil). :P

I'm not that far away from a Gamestop but there isn't one near me that has the PS4 demo.  I do see that the BBY near me is supposed to have it now so maybe I'll go out there tomorrow.

I chatted with Amazon customer service and they said if you PS4 game pre-order was not in earlier than 11/9 then you will not receive an email for the Buy 1 Get 1 Free. So all that leaves is the Tuesday GR8TNESS coupon code for the buy 2 get 1 free on Amazon.Com (same as Target instore and online). 

Dang! That's what I was afraid of.

 

Anyone test this method to see otherwise?

So did you preorder BF4. Get an email and then go back?

 

I guess you can't add 2 games to the cart and then get a retroactive applying email. Right?

If you really think about it the BOGO code is basically the same thing as B2GO since you have to preordered a game before to get the BOGO code. So you're still technically going to pay for two games even with the BOGO code.

I got the code for the free game(injustice), placed another order for killzone and NFS and the bogo applied. $60 total for 3 games not bad at all

Oh! So this is the same deal being applied two different ways. I'll wait until Tuesday, just in case.

Amazon should have done this a bit better by sending the B1G1 coupon once one preorder shipped and told people that was the case. Since wasn't this meant to be for people who preordered a game, but would have missed out on the B2G1 since they already bought a game. At least they did the promo, but the lack of communication was a bit annoying. Instead they just sent them out.

 

Did people who had two+ preorders get the free game and people with one preorder get the B1G1?

Yes and yes. As long as they are launch day games.

People who had 1 game pre-ordered got a "Buy another game & get a free game" code

While people like me who had 2 games pre-ordered got a "heres your free game" code

 

I'm seeing some people claim they got x3 games for $60... Yet somehow forget they purchased 1 before (which was paid for)

So either they're awful at math, lying or something else...

I used the free game coupon, have two bundles with games pre-ordered, to get skylanders for PS4. Worked for the full $74.96 value. Plus it says this: "Pre-order Skylanders SWAP Force and get the never before released Lightcore Hex"

Very nice.  Too bad it didn't consider my Driveclub pre-order as launch window any longer.

What if someone cancels just so they can buy again to get the BOGO?

but you were already planning to buy the game full price, it's a past purchase, sunk cost, it doesn't really count.

 

Also you can easily cancel the preordered game

Sweet, they added NFS Rivals to the list. Now I just gotta decide between that and Knack.

If it doesn't count than why didn't everybody get a BOGO or free game code? Code is just for giving previous customer a chance to get in on the B2G1 sale. With that I am done discussing the purpose of the code.

I had that pre-order and the watch dog limited edition and didn't get a code either. Maybe the limited editions didn't quantify for the codes :/

Crap, I was leaning toward NFS but I definitely don't want to wait that long to get it. Guess I'll go with Knack then.
