I've got a code for the Paladins alpha for a non-newbie CAG that PMs me first.

 

Edit: Code's gone.

I am going to trade my ps4 for a pro at gamestop but i have a bit of a complicated question about the hard drive. I put my ps4 500 gb hd in my ps3 a while back. Can i just take that 500 gb out of the ps3 and put back in my ps4 and my ps4 will automatically format the drive again?

For example i am initialing my ps4 with a 1tb hd but i will take that hard drive out after it is finished.

Will i have to initial my ps3 with the 500gb drive before i put this original drive back in the ps4?

You just need a thumb drive with the latest FW update (800-900 MB version) on it to do the full format so they'll take it. That's all you need to do since the PS3 and PS4 reformat any foreign hard drives that are inserted into them.

No deals on the exclusives I want, lame.  Just got my PS4 Pro and boy-howdy are the HDCP handshaking issues a real blast... at least LG is addressing them unlike the other manufacturers (from what I've read).  Hopefully Sony and LG get it resolved, because it's annoying.

 

Otherwise, like the PS4 Pro so far.  Plan on playing Uncharted 4 this weekend and grab a few more exclusives (PC gamer primarily).

Alright, with the 10% code.. I am not sure if I should blow it now with my purchases or wait till Thursday/Friday to see if there will be more deals.

Still waiting on Final Fantasy X/X2, Type 0, Bloodborne, Dark Souls 3 and a few other games to show up

walmart will have ff10/x-2 ps4 for 8$ blackfriday according to their ad if that matters.

Should I buy Overwatch from PSN or GameStop? PSN has no tax and 10% off, GameStop comes with a baby Winston figure, I can't decide if I want it physical or digital

I prefer digital, so even though I got it for $28 from Best By the other day, I'm going to return it and pick it up on PSN. After taxes, it's only $1 less.

What is the tax rate where you live? I got Overwatch from Best Buy via shipping and it was $29.17 after tax. Would've been more in-store since I get charged about half the local sales tax rate when ordering something for shipping but still about $4 cheaper than PSN.

If anyone has an extra Paladins beta code I'll take it off your hands.
Overwatch is for losers anyway.

Tax is 0.08875% here, so I paid $30.47. On PSN, I believe it would come out to $31.50 with the 10% off code.

Why the sales end Tuesday so if they did do the flash sale it wouldnt dump these sales out.

Physical is not out until Jan 31st and it's gonna retail for $60 unless they decide to lower the price before launch, so you might be waiting quite a long while for the physical copy to hit $30.

Yeah, what I do now is use my Best Buy certs to buy PSN cards at a cheaper price, that way I'm still getting more value and saving as well since there's no tax included.

thanks.

I initialized my ps4 but did that automatically deactivate the primary ps4 thing? I forgot that was a big issue a couple of years ago.

Do i have to log in to that ps4 again now that i put the new hard drive in just to deactivate it as my primary ps4 or does it automatically do that when i initialed the ps4?

I bought a $10 code from Amazon so I'll have enough in my wallet to buy Witcher 3 Complete. I've seen it before, but this is the first time I paid attention to how many PSN codes I have purchased from Amazon. Woo, these PSN sales add up.

Kind of weird. I looked up my account at https://account.sony...mentnetwork.com and i cant even find any activated devices. I dont know what is going on with that. Maybe if i never set my primary ps4 account on that system manually i'm ok? I dont get it.

Oh well. I got the full $187 for my ps4 at gamestop tonight so i am happy.

I may go back tomorrow and pick up the ps4 pro even though i told myself i would wait for a better bundle. I am bored as hell and want to play some of these games i am buying lol

I forgot about the 10% off code that quickly. That's what getting older does to you. :D

Does Rockstar have an exclusive deal with PS for all their old games on the new consoles (Red Dead Revolver, Max Payne and Bully on the PS4)?  Any other PS2/OG Xbox games like these that have been released already, besides the GTA series and the Star Wars ones?

The 10% code is 1 time use I thought.  So have everything ready for part 2.  Plus a rough idea of how much money I need t add to my wallet as well.  If the 10% is multiple uses then I would grab everything now.
