Stopped in my local store yesterday and left empty handed. Sure, they had (1) copy each of Tornado Outbreak and Quantum Theory, but only in the shitty GS cases. Had to pass. It's the only store in my area that has them in stock, as well. Coulda bought some other junk just to buy something, but without getting what I came for (in the condition I would like), they weren't getting my money that day.

For a new ps3 owner, what exclusive should I pick up for ps3 that is on the list?

If I were in your shoes, this would be my list:

 

God of War Collection
inFAMOUS
inFAMOUS 2

Killzone 3
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Resistance 3

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception GOTY

 

However, I predominantly game on my PC, so that isn't including console exclusives, just PS3 exclusives.

Worth noting that if you really like God of War, you might want to buy God of War: Saga instead.  It includes all the God of War games aside from Ascension.  Unless you get lucky with a used copy, you might want to buy it new though; Chain of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta are download codes, not on disc.

 

And if you like inFAMOUS, you could also buy the inFAMOUS Collection instead.  In addition to inFAMOUS 1 and 2, it includes "inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood, Extra missions, Additional character costumes, power ups and weapon styles".  Once again, it's a download code, so you might want to buy new.

Similarly, if you like Killzone 3, there's also the Killzone Trilogy you could buy.  In addition to a 720p remaster of Killzone 1 (previously on on PS2), it includes Killzone 2 and 3, as well as " all Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 multiplayer map packs".  Once again, if you want the map packs I believe they're redeemable by a code, so you might want to buy new.

 

No idea on MGS4 content; but I know there's the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection which includes all the MGS games, except MGS1 is redeemable by a code.

Onto Resistance 3.  There is a Resistance Collection, which includes all 3 games plus DLC.  However, the DLC for Resistance 1 is free on PSN, and I don't think the servers are up for Resistance 2 or 3 anymore.  The games are so cheap at GameStop ($3 for R1, $3 for R2, and $10 for R3) it probably isn't worth the $30 on the collection.  If for some reason the R3 servers are up, you'll need an Online Pass to play, which is on the back of the instruction manual.  The 2 used copies I checked still had the code active.

 

Uncharted 2 does have a GOTY edition, but I believe all the DLC codes are expired.  Plus, it's all for multiplayer; no singleplayer DLC.  GameStop doesn't differentiate between the vanilla and GOTY editions, so just get the cleanest copy you can of either.

 

Uncharted 3 GOTY has the DLC on disc, however, you'll need an Online Pass to play online (or even offline multiplayer, apparently).  The pass is on the back of the instruction manual.  My used copy had an active code still.  Also, like Uncharted 2, all the DLC is for multiplayer.

Finally, some prices.  God of War: Saga was $10 this past Black Friday (Amazon), I've seen the inFAMOUS Collection for $15 (Amazon, Best Buy, Target), and the Killzone Trilogy for $15 too (Target).

 

Finally (for real this time) I pulled most of my info from the OFFICIAL GOTY/Complete/Ultimate/DLC Edition Compilation Thread here.

 

Didn't mean to give you an essay, but hopefully it'll help! :)

 

I think Lords of Shadow was a 2 disc game on the 360 to begin with.

Correct.  If you look at the PS3 version it's only 1 disc, because Blu-ray media holds more than DVD's.

I found a castlevania, but they pulled the discs from a different (non book version). So I got the book/acetate case with 2 discs, but no soundtrack and no codes. grrrr.

Went back today and picked up Aliens: Colonial Marines, God of War Collection, and Crysis 2. Despite all the hate for Aliens, I doubt I'll be too disappointed with it, considering the meager $3.xx price tag.

God of War Saga was $10 on Black Friday? That seems like a steal. Did it sell out quickly or were there expired voucher codes at the time or something? I'm trying to remember why I would have passed on it or somehow missed it.

Snagged Aliens too. Seeing if all the hate is worth it.

Aliens: Colonial  Marines is a below average FPS. I got tired of it 1/2 way and traded it at the MS store when they had the $10 deal.

 

Its not that bad that I bought it again (360)  to maybe finish.  It does have 4 man coop throughout the entire campaign. MP lobbies were empty tho.

 

I also got :

 

God of War Collection

Modnation Racers

Tiger Woods Masters Edition (PS3)

Castlevania (360)

NBA 2K13 (360)

Some good GS to BB credit movers if you have Power Up Rewards, take advantage of the 30% BB credit bonus tomorrow and Saturday, and you have 10% from Gamer Unlocked. A lot of hoops, I know, but here you go. Prices on left are after PUR at Gamestop, and on right are the BB amounts after the bonuses:

Aliens Colonial Marines (PS3): 3->4.20
Castlevania (PS3): 3->4.20
Dead Island (PS3): 3->4.20
EA Sports Active 2 (360): 3->7
Heavy Fire Afghanistan (PS3): 3->7
Hitman Absolution (PS3): 3->4.20
Nail'd (PS3): 3->7
Prototype (360): 3->5.60
Secret Service Ultimate Sacrifice (360): 3->7
UFC Personal Trainer (PS3): 3->4.20


Thanks for this. Black friday wiped most of my bb credit and was looking for something to offset my dying light preorders and, well, between gcu and gamestop lack of promotions the credit I have there hasn't been doing much more than sitting there.

So through that quick turnover, I managed to turn $18 gamestop credit into $39 best buy credit. That got me AC IV, FF XIII, and Gears Judgment!

Thanks. I picked up god of war saga used for $10 back before Black Friday. Why does ps3 games have the dlc on the booklet? Couldn't fit it on disc?

Is. Castlevania better on xbox or ps3?
I picked up earth defense force 2017 with case, but no booklet.
I also got dead space 2 limited edition.

I'm thinking of getting the following ps3 exclusives:
Drake uncharted 3 goty
Already got killzone 3 ce when converted, have mass effect 1-3 on xbox.
So difficult to pick last two games

I wanted to get all the mass effects but my store didn't have 1 or 2.

 

I tried to convince them to sell me the trilogy/box set for $10.

 

Did not work...

In the picture of the sale from page 12, above the poster's thumb in the bottom left hand corner it says until 2/15/15. I assume that is when it ends. They certainly aren't advertising it anywhere.

Got Ratchet & Clank All 4 One, God of War Collection, and Dead Space 2 Limited Edition case.  Surprised that GoW collection was complete.  Grabbed the DS 2 LE case, but the Gamestop guy put the regular game in it.  Wasn't going to fight for a $3.XX game.

You know the Limited Edition comes with an extra full game? My Gamestops have more of the Limited Editions than regular editions. Exchange it. (Make sure it's not a Greatest Hit since that's just a demo of the extra game.)

I need both of you to clarify. GoW collection should have something other than the first 2 games? I got the GH version.

Went to the first GameStop, only found :360: Earth Defense Force 2017 so I bought it. Checked another GS and found :360: Earth Defense Force Insect Armageddon and combined it with :360: Borderlands GOTYE and asked for an adjustment with my previous purchase. The cashier was very helpful and combined them all together. A nice work around if you can't find all the games you are looking for in one store.

So the Goty edition of Borderlands is part of this deal?

God of War Origins Collection is the two PSP titles

God of War Saga is GoW 1-3 + the two PSP titles

Thanks, Ferris182.

 

Went to the store to pickup an xbox live sub card and ended up getting three 360 games.

Saw Mass effect 2, a Mass Effect 3: one with a female Shepard on cover and one with male Shepard) and Aliens: CM.

I thought, I've never seen a female cover of ME3 so I picked that one up.

 

Drove home and finally looked in the bag and was surprised that I had Aliens: CM, Mass Effect 2, and not the regular case with Mass Effectt 3 but a collectors edition of Mass Effect 3. :)

The Mass Effect 3 is a reversible cover.  One side is male and the other is female.  Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 is the same, except with the Soviets red theme on one side and the Allies blue theme on the other.

I needed a cheap copy of BL to add to my Best Buy pre-order album jacket so I can get it framed. NGS came with the instructions for NGS2 - I'll see if I can swap the instructions.
