When did the deals section become the "I'm a dumb fanboy" section?

Someone on the other thread bought one of these bundles and found a forza download code with the titanfall download code. Idk if it is true but other experiences from others would greatly help those on the fence XD

Just lends support that $400 price point (with or without gift card) is coming by E3 or Black Friday.

Fantastic deal. I am surprised that we are seeing a drop so quick for these bundles though. I wonder if they're not selling as well as they would have liked. Still a great deal for those wanting one.

I'd hardly call MS desperate. I'm quite enjoying my X1 while that ps4 of mine barely gets played. I'm about to go pickup infamous but it doesn't look like it's too good either.

Ah maybe these ps4 exclusives will start being good, soon. Greatness "awaits", they ain't lyin'.

Wow, if I'd bought one day one I'd be feeling real good about myself right now.

 

I wonder if Titanfall isn't doing the console numbers MS was expecting.

I'm thinking this as well, how many deals have there been on these bundles now? I lost count. You would think when you bundle in your best game you wouldn't need to drop the price, but I guess not.

What I find most ironic is people said they didn't want the kinect, that it was stupid, etc and that's the reason it's $100 more. Yet the ps4 camera has been harder to find than the console itself :lol:

The regular Xbox One is also $450.  Considering both SKU's are this price and it's multiple companies now, I'm thinking this might turn into a regular price soon.

This "deal" isn't coming from Microsoft, it's coming from Wal-Mart. They bought a decent chunk of systems from Microsoft, and those systems aren't shifting as fast as they would like. So they're knocking a bit off the price to free up some shelf space in the slow video game shopping months.

 

It's not panic time, but it also doesn't look good for Microsoft. Wal-Mart is the largest video game retailer in the U.S. Their numbers matter more than any other brick-and-mortar retailer. A $50 discount isn't that big of a deal at this juncture, it's just 10% off, after all. But it is a bit telling to see it come shortly after the XBox One's tent-pole title came out. It's obvious that Titanfall isn't shifting units as well as Microsoft was expecting, despite it's near-universal critical praise. Respawn and EA will be fine once the 360 version of Titanfall launches, but the XBox One isn't going to be sold on Titanfall alone.

 

While this current Wal-Mart sale is a bit tempting, I still feel reluctance. If I got an XBox One now I would be able to try out Project Spark. But I'm not sure I want to be dropping this level of cash at the moment. And if the XBox One has trouble with its sales in the coming holiday season, it's likely I could pick one up for even less around Black Friday.

Pretty snazzy deal. If I bought one with my Best Buy credit card I'd be looking at 1347 points or $25 in reward credit. Hmm.

I am a little surprised to see these sales so soon as well. I cant remember a bundled console dropping so fast after release. I honestly thought these would sell out. That being said, Titanfall is amazing and GOTY contender IMO, I haven't had this much fun with a FPS in a long time.

I first saw the news story about the Wal-Mart deal, and accidentally posted in the wrong thread. I didn't even know Best-Buy was matching this deal. The fact that two major retailers are offering the same deal only reinforces what I posted. But yes, a bit of a clerical oversight on my part. Sorry.

Except this is from best buy and not walmart, does nobody understand that games that are also doing fantastically well ALSO will go on sale to get those EXTRA people who have held out?

You can find a few things out by reading between the lines, such as how the price needs to be seen in the cart. When best buy does that, it is because it is not a price drop.

The XB1 is doing fantastically well, but because they were well stocked in many stores people assume it is because they weren't selling well, but in reality they are but they produced enough to meet demand is all.

Plus if you paid attention to the numbers, titanfall caused a increase of hardware sales by 90%+.
To imagine that microsoft or titanfall are in any way hurting is kind of silly.

I mean target had a bunch of sales on the 3DS XL, does that mean that the best selling hand held is hurting? A sale can just be a sale you know. Stores do it all the time to avoid having multiple sku's and to clear up space.

 

Why does any time ever that there is a sale or anything people always turn it into some news story.

Besides the "hundreds of thousands have been playing since Tuesday when it launched in the US" have there been any sales numbers regarding Titanfall? Must not be selling all that great if not. Still a great deal for this bundle though.

"hundreds of thousands"?  As in...200k?  300k?  500k?  How many is "hundreds of thousands"?  If Microsoft had good numbers they'd be shouting them from the mountaintops like always.  It's when they have bad numbers that they're vague as shit.  Honestly, if Titanfall was the system sell people claimed it would be, there would be MILLIONS of people playing it.  You'd expect 1-2 million, at least half the install base since the core gamers bought the console and the game is for core gamers.

Interested why you would say Infamous doesn't look good even though it has an 80 on metacritic and multiple reviewers that gave it 70-80s said its the best infamous to date. I dont get what the Fuck their problem is, if it is the best Infamous then why did they give it mixed score. Just goes to prove that reviewers can not be trusted.

Assuming the number is true, a 90% increase over a small number is still a small number.    ;)

 

To the point of Titanfall sales, I find it curious that EA/Respawn and MS haven't released any press yet to boast how sales went.  They do that right after CoD releases.  They do that right after BF4 releases.  They do that right after Halo releases.  The game released over a week ago.  No press.  Not a good sign, imo.  (Granted it's a new IP...blah blah...still...)

? This is "Cheap Ass Gamer." Everyone who comes to this site is interested in sales. It's only natural for conjecture to follow, especially from a crowd who is so enthusiastic about following the various fluctuations in game prices. Any and all sales are news stories for us. I don't see anything wrong with that.
