When Mario, Fire Emblem, and SMT are on it....I will find it hard to resist. Also if something like Story of Seasons Switch comes out....I will be happy like a little school girl. Right now there isn't enough, and I wont do like i did for the PS4 and get it early. Honestly that first year and a half or so of PS4 was pretty lame. It was pretty much Battlefield 4, Infamous Second Son, and......well that's it....until Bloodborne came out, and then I was like oh yeah PS4 is nice!

Thanks for the tip. I really hate that stuff that's digital only can go away and be inaccessible, but it's at least a little better when the publisher gives a heads-up first. I wonder if it'll go on sale before the date.

I thought I remembered something. Hopefully they announce what it is soon, since play Asia also has a physical.

thanks alot ! I appreciate the heads up when stuff is getting discontinued.

I expect the attack on titan stage will also be disappearing too right?
hopefully a deep sale will be coming for those sets.

Yeah, hope someone gives a heads up if those DLC go on sale... wish they started discounting the new Season Passes already :/

This was one of the issues I've always had with digital-only goods, the ever-looming presence of the content being "gone for good." If some of the Fairy Tail costumes go on sale, I may cave and pick up one or two (those Senran Kagura outfits are still my favorite). 

 

It's all just talk right now. There is zero reason for me to give Nintendo $300+ on good faith alone. Especially given their track record. 

Same here. I'm not even remotely swayed towards another Nintendo console. I also have yet to see any games for the system that make me even want it. And re-releasing different versions of games from other consoles certainly won't do it.

 

Outside of Tekken 7, nothing really stands out this week unless you've been waiting for Ys Origin on the Vita to release. 

Wow, forgot that Tekken 7 was already coming out. I was originally going to pre-order it, but I've been so into Injustice 2 lately, I might hold off for a bit.

Should be noted that Season Pass 4 will be removed as well but that's because both of those sets were in that pack. It wouldn't be a problem since you can still buy the other packs separately but it also mentions the exclusive Ayane Miyama Ageha costume that you get for buying that specific Season Pass will be removed too.

 

Found it odd Season Pass 4 didn't have a sale this past April since Season Pass 1-3 had sales a year after their respective releases. So my guess is they're saving the sale for sometime soon (there hasn't been any DOA5 sales recently either) or worst case scenario is they won't have one to force people to cough up $93.
