Psp Go... enough said.

And intial xbox one reveal.  Granted it wasn't digital only but it was pretty damn close. You couldn't re-sell the games and you had to be connected online at least every 24 hours.

 

Combined with the $499 price it was not kind to the xbox sales outside of when it first came out (day oners/hardcore fanbase that wanted the X1 asap like me).

 

It took lots of apologizes, steep price cuts along with a ton of 180's to surpass even Wii U sales (World Wide) and catch pace with current PS4 sales.

Trying requires effort, never seen that to begin with.

They used to have all kinds of cool gimicks, Preorders were great 7+ years ago, free demos with preorders, game swag with preorders, ect...

How many times they won for worst online and B&M retailer here now?

 

It's like they don't give a damn.

Enough said about what?

 

I am not talking about past failures in moving towards digital only.  I am talking of the future.  If you can't see the trend towards digital downloads, then you are not paying attention.

Is Freedom Wars worth the risk seeing as how Vita games are so hard to find in stores now?

I can either get it for 14.99 (currently PM'ed on Amazon) and receive it by Tuesday, the day after I receive my PS Vita.

Or drop in Friday and hope to get a copy for 9.99.

If the cost of digital games start to be less than physical games then I could see games going digital only even with the large download sizes. I think people with losuy internet providers/speed are going to get left behind and honestly they already are with some of these online only games.

This is a legitimate issue.  I can see a system where you take your thumb drive to a place like Game Stop and buy the download there.   There could even be exclusive deals where a place like Best Buy gets to sell the download a week before everyone else and you get some cheap swag to go with it.

 

There are ways around the lack of connectivity.  Just takes some creativity to deal with it.  

 

As much money as there is to be made from killing the used game market, I am sure they producers can figure out something.

Is the super extreme version of dragon age worth an extra 20?

Come on guys, the sale isn't that bad

The code in there is available seperately now for $10. Also the difference in the retail versions is also $10.

Needs more Wii U deals. If they had something where you get eShop credit for buying a console, I'd probably go for it.

 

 

Gamestop's been good to me. I always go for their B2G1 deals so I spend an average of $10-$15 per game. If/When I get a Wii U, I'll be all over that store buying original Wii games playing catch up.

Sort of disappointing. Don't they usually have a B2G1 free of sorts post Christmas? Even a B2G1 under $19.99 would be pretty great.

Ugg looked for Freedom Wars Vita at close stores and most have low stock, which very likely means gutted...even though I doubt there is a manual. I would have to go to the other side of town to likely get a new one...likely will order Amazon instead.

Vita games almost never have manuals. Maybe some CE have them or maybe there's a one-sheet ad/legal sheet.

Yeah it's pretty sad when one of the best manuals was Toukiden and it was just a control cheat sheet page haha.

The price of that Vita memory card is f---ing disgusting, but I guess I have no choice but to bite. Lower the --- damn prices of these cards already, Sony... -_-

Dragon Age Inquisition $39.99 on all versions


Sounds good to me. Was the same price during BF on Amazon if I remembered correctly.

I'm in for the 50% off strategy guides.  Got a DA:I CE on hand to return/rebuy on Friday plus use my last $10 off PUR coupon before it expires on 12/31.

GS's Twitter account sent a tweet out today saying anyone who gets the PS4, XB1, or PC version of NBA 2K15 at GS will get $20 in free in-game items. The picture showed 10k in VC & 5 holiday-themed My Team packs.

I'm sure this is a code that prints on the receipt.

Unless their model changes, game stop will be dead in a few years.  Everything is going digital.  It wouldn't be surprising if the next generation of consoles will be all digital download.

 

Tablets and phones have conditioned the populace for the move.   MS tried to move in that direction this time and the backlash hindered the move.  In five years, no one will probably care.

Xbox one already tried the whole digital thing... Before it was even launched people were yelling about it. People will always love hard copies of things...

Not to mention 90% of the Midwest doesn't have access to broadband Internet, either b/c of logistics or cost.

Looks like Ubisoft is going to be stingy on putting Far Cry 4 on sale.  Considering how poorly received The Crew and Unity was this holiday I guess they need to hold onto as many full price sales for FC4 right now.

They don't need to. They prey on soccer moms and grandparents.

Looks like Amazon is price matching Sniper Elite 3 for PS4 at $29.99.  They may be matching other prices as well.

Got a Vita from the loving wife today.  Gonna use a PUR coupon and Kong Coupon to nab a 32gb memory card.  Nearing $1=1gb so it's not too bad.

 

I'll have a look at the other Vita accessories too.  Should be a good outing.
