Even though it doesn't make much sense, if the Ps Plus March EU Rumor is true and NA also gets Tomb Raider, there may be no point for many in getting TR : GOTY for PS3. Nonetheless Thanks for the heads up though!

I'd put money on Tomb Raider being part of PS+ for NA in March. We'll probably find out Thursday or Friday.

Not tonight, lol. When I first read the post from my phone, I thought it was for the PS4 verison. I guess I don't need that version since I wouldn't touch the multiplayer at all.

Amazon has Battle of Z for 360 for $39.99/ps3 for $49.99 in case anyone was interested and/or doesn't have GCU.

Huh, they used Gamerscore as a bulletpoint, I've never seen that.
 
I am an Achievement Hunter myself, but that seems like an odd thing to have as a bulletpoint.

Does buying the vanilla Tomb Raider, Definitive Edition, and Game of the Year version count as the 3 game limit for GCU?

yes

Even if it's a different SKU for each one?

 

That's a good deal, however if this was for the x1/ps4 version then yes even better.  Great game but not worth rebuying it if the graphics are the same on the 360 version.

I am also under the impression that you would be fine with the three different Tomb Raiders.  They have different skus so to Best Buy they are different products. 

 

The person that said yes is giving way too much credit to their POS POS.

I'd pick up Tomb Raider if the DLC was on disk, alas it's not unfortunately.

The system does not check for multiples, employees do. Also, the SKU does not matter. PS3/360/XB1/PS4/Vita/WiiU/3DS games all have different SKUs and they all count. If you were to buy CoD Ghosts on 360/PS3/XB1/PS4 that would count as 4 times buying the same item.

 

Plus they have stated CE count toward the limit of 3 for the base game, so SKU has NOTHING to do with it.

 

The issue comes with stuff like this, when they release a GotY/HD remake. They are out almost a year after the initial release so would they still count? It's still Tomb Raider, but it's a GotY/Super HD remake...

 

I really feel BBY needs to do a great deal of clarification with the GCU program. I honestly prefer shopping at BBY over other retailers, but I am not blind to their flaws. The GCU program is great on the surface, but when you dig down into the details it has me worried. It almost feels like this was not ready to be rolled out publicly, or it's in beta.


Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

It doesn't, they are messing with you. These are three separate products.

I played and traded in Tomb Raider (360) last year to best buy. If I get banned this week after I finish Tomb Raider Definitive (ps4) I will be livid! They are not the same game.

Currently playing (juggling):
:360: None :xb1: Destiny, Gears of War 4
:ps3: None :ps4: Batman VR, Destiny, Eve Valkyrie, Skyrim, VR Worlds, Watch Dogs 2
:wii: None :3ds: Pokemon Moon

I thought the only additions above the vanilla version was multiplayer doc.

its definitely long enough to play through it a few times. If you bought it physically, it wouldn't last forever either.

I waits for PS4 version dropping down $20 or less. Pointless buying GOTY for PS3 with dlc code :(

I'm a person that likes to own actual copies, when plus runs out you don't have it anymore.

I've still got nes games that haven't disintegrated, so your theory is flawed.

I was referring to the content of bestbuy, if you add to cart it lists two items, just wasn't sure if it was a full game + dlc or a re issued dlc code since I heard some were bad inside.

What happens if you go offline with your PS3 are you still able to play those PS+ downloaded games?  Or are you blocked out?  

 

Either way I am all for owning physical copies as well since you actually own the game instead of owning a digital game that can disappear whenever they want it to.

I used to be this way, and I still like physical over digital. However, I don't see the point in accumulating games, games and more games when they are owned just for the sake of owning them. I've become much more pleased with my current process in which I buy games on the cheap, keep ones that are absolutely amazing/hold MP value (Halo 4, last of us, etc) but for games like tomb raider, etc I trade in when the going is hot and put it towards my next game when I'm done with it.

I love making my new games essentially free.

It's just the idea of relying on the lifespan of only two consoles, as most allow up to 2 downloads.

It just bothers me, if I were to break 2 I'd be SOL, if I actually owned a game I'd just reinstall it infinite times on infinite systems if need be.

As for plus offline, I think there is a timer for the duration of your plus sub to access content.

Yep timer stays on games even when offline. 

I'm plus til 2019, so im down with free digital 'rentals'. 

n my ps3 died last year, you can have them reset all your 'systems' and always be good for 2 more system downloads.  It isn't if the system breaks you are screwed out of luck. I think this is a great game and great deal, but the chance for it being ps+ is just way too high, and then i would be turning around and trading the game back to bestbuy again. lol circle of life
