You cannot bring over characters from 360 to PS4 right? Only PS3-PS4 and 360-XB1?


You cannot as far as I'm aware.

Will game guides be 50% off online as well? Hmmm....I've been wanting the Wind Waker HD guide.

Dying Light does not understand I am a patient man and I will wait for it to fall to $40.

handsome jack collection worth it though, i'm playing pre-sequel on PS4 right now and its pretty fun.  not sure I'll replay BL2, finished it (no DLCs) on PC a long time ago

Hmmm all the talk in this thread makes me think I should try Borderlands finally lol.

 

I've noticed the funny thing about best buy is they can have some random games on sale not in the ad. I'll still keep a look out tonight.

Yeah I hope there are a few other things that show up price dropped on the website.

Darn, was really hoping for a sale on Dark Souls ... seems like it's not dropping and I want to jump back in after Game Flying it.

I too am waiting for Dark Souls 2 to drop in price, $60 is just too much for the game at this point, $40 is the sweet spot, same with Handsome Jack Collection. I was really hoping to see DmC Definitive Edition hit $30 this week, but it doesn't seem to be dropping yet either.

Well since they are going to be releasing a patch to fix some of the issues with Dark Souls 2, it might not be terrible to wait a while to get started anyway. Patch should be out soon. I kinda wish I had been able to wait for it to price drop a bit, buuut it was a day one purchase for me.

Has anyone tried to use the movers coupon with the $75 coupon they give you after you trade in your 360/PS3? I'd be tempted if I could combine the two.

I'm torn on Dying Light, I rented it on Gamefly and loved it much more than expected.  But I was hoping for $39.99 by now.  I do have a $10 cert to burn though and with GCU that brings it to $30 which might make me bite on it.  

 

Dark Souls 2 SOTFS I'd wait on, it's a good game but those remaster/re-releases almost always drop quickly.  I'd be surprised if that one doesn't get a $39.99 sale for console in a month.  It shouldn't really be a $60 game and I'd feel a little regret if I paid that much, especially when you can pick it up for under $40 for PC (or even under $30) already quite easily.

 

BTW, I had my 50% off guide welcome coupon which hadn't expired yet, and tried using it on a sale guide a Best Buy last week and they don't combo.  Although not surprising it was a little disappointing.  At least at my store most of the guides there are dog-eared worn, well read-through, and unsealed so the e-guide codes might already be used...so not being able to use the coupon on a guide that's on-sale that is also basically in used condition made it a pass for me.

How does that work? Wouldn't day 1 for that game be way out of the 15 day return/exchange period in which they are willing to price match pricing changes?

Dark Souls 2 will be on sale for $49.99 during the week of May 3-9 at Best Buy. It's not much but it might be enough for some people.

How do you know this? Do you have an add for that week?

I work at my local newspaper. I've glanced at the ad.

That would be awesome if you could take a peek for us on future ads.

My worry is job security. Pretty sure there's some stipulation in there about taking ads before they're out, and I can't recall but I'd assume there's also something in there about sharing information ahead of time. There's also this from the CAG rules:

 

"Trademarks, Copyrighted Material, and Confidential Information
You may not use CAG to make available content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights of another. You may not use CAG to make available content which you have no right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships (including but not limited to inside information and proprietary or confidential information disclosed in employment relationships or under nondisclosure agreements)."

 

That also makes me weary. I'm aware people post things ahead of time, and I'm not sure of the specifics of how or why they do. Either way, I'd hate to draw enough attention that something bad comes of it.

None in the printed ad. The whole ad is a little underwhelming, to be honest.

As for the TOS, CAG has always posted up ads online beforehand.  What gets us is trouble is if we actually scan the ad and upload it on here.  So from what I've seen on this board over the last 5 years, nothing would happen to you if you were to post them in advance.  However, your job is first and foremost so if you feel uneasy about it then I would totally understand if you don't.

Just shoot a couple photos taken from your phone over to me and I'll gladly post it so there is no trace to you. ;)
