FYI, the buy 4 $4.99 or less games for $10 is still going on. They extended it till 2/11/18. 

 

Has GS posted a Free Shipping option yet for online orders?

Dig that "New" in thread title OP, nice sucker punch right there, lol. Guess they still have a lot of $5 and under games they want to get rid of with the 4/$10 sale being extended.

No kidding, trying to unload that and old sports games is going to be a chore. I've gotten picky about what PS3 and 360 games I want to buy and add to my backlog. Most of them I can find cheaper at local game and pawn shops anyway.

Two stores both said they know nothing of a 4 for 20 or 4 for 40 coming up as stated earlier.  One nearby had a 6 for 60% trade in bonus like before but the guy working there said he didn't know anything about it so could be old.  Can confirm prestige day on 27th though, pretty much standard fare...b2g1 all used items, b2g1 pop figures, a whopping 10% extra on trade ins...

Does anyone recalled if the extra 10% prestige bonus stacks with the running 40% preorder bonus?

Don't expect or assume stores to know what is going on with pretty much anything, just let the register do the work/math. For the Q4 $4.99 games for $10 deal, my store thought it ended until I said to just ring it up and watch the register do it's magic.

Yes, it does.

I thought it didn't because of only one promo being allowed into the system?

So....wonder if there will be a stealth bump tomorrow? Looking forward to Prestige day on Saturday. Hopefully some decent deal and perhaps a B2G1.

The two prestige days I got to take part in, it stacked with any and all other promotions.

I'm hoping they have a bonus game with an Xbox One X soon. I have enough credit to buy it now, but trying to be patient.

I found the in-store signage on the 40% (elite), 30% (pro), or 20% (non members) bonus credit towards trade ins on Dragon Ball Fighterz, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, Monster Hunter World, and Shadow of the Colossus.

It was weird though because I tried to pre-order and get bonus credit today, and it wouldn't let me pre-order. I guess because the release was imminent? Anyone else ever have that sort of problem before?

I had employees a few weeks ago literally calling dibs on Switch games that I traded in while doing the trade in.

It sure is.  Nice insane rant, Romeo. 

Well, you missed the point entirely.   I'm well aware it's free -- I guess no one is bothered by the fact that this kind of split "GOTY" edition is how publishers are incentivizing you to sign up and continue to get accustomed to the idea of never actually owning your games.

 

It's the sad future of games -- and well, all media.  It's not a rant; these companies are slowly acclimating you to a new digital world where all you own are licenses. 

 

Too bad so few care about it.  I miss the days when re-releases actually were complete ones on-disc.  Games like Mortal Kombat XL and Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Ed. are now the exception rather than the rule. 

 

Will never buy digital games -- and will be done with this industry when it goes that way.

What about excellent or wildly popular digital-only games?  Like Cuphead, or PUBG, or Thumper, or Shovel Knight (on :xb1: anyway), or any Steam game, or any other of 1000 examples?

I agree with what he says in regards to CONSOLE games. Digital games on PC is fine though, mainly because they tend to have steeper discounts than console games, though I personally only ever buy PC games if they're in a humble bundle. If I REALLY want a particular game, I'll pay $10 absolute tops (generally it has to be a goty or have added content like elder scrolls or fallout; otherwise I'll pay maybe $5-$6 for the game).

I guess I'm not understanding you.  I'm not suggesting in any way that other people not buy digital games.  I undertstand the appeal of having digital games/movies, and it's clear that's the future of game sales.  Xbox's Game Pass is only the beginning, and as the fine folks on Unlocked and Gamescoop have been talking about, more and more consumers are being trained by publishers to accept digital licenses vs. owning the actual game.

 

It's what publishers have always wanted - digital games -- and soon subscription-based games will all but ensure the death of pre-owned game sales (i.e. Gamestop), and soon thereafter -- retail game releases will go the way of music CDs in stores - a single isle in the entertainment section.

 

Again, I'm not denying it.  For me, it's a sales method I will not support, no matter how great the game might be.  I'll stick with physical.  And then when those go away, I'll be done with buying games. 

 

I will add that I agree with the sentiments of Sam, Justin, and Marty who on their respective podcasts have talked about how the growing adoption of subscription-based gaming will seriously threaten how consumers value video games, and that it may make AAA games harder and harder to finance successfully.  If gamers can subscribe to digital games for $10/month, the value proposition of $60 games, online or retail, will be in jeopardy.  It's concerning, to say the least.

 

Anyways, when games go digitial, may be then I can finally make a dent in my backlog ... er, collection :)

I know you're not suggesting that, you don't seem to be the type that likes to speak for other people.  I'm just saying you're maybe doing yourself a disservice by not trying out digital-only games.

 

Unless you do, in which case never mind. :D

Am I missing something? Where is the psvr $200?

 

Have you missed the Christmas sale? The GT Sports Bundle was $200 for almost the whole December, got mine for $180 from Walmart (and returned the Skyrim VR Bundle from Thanksgiving sale)

I too prefer physical. It allows me to beat a game and sell it or let others borrow it like my 7 yr old son borrowing Mario Kart or Mario Land. What bothers me most about the digital era are season passes. I may be wrong on this but I just think that content that is trickled out should have just been included in the game. I feel that the games pushed out aren't 100% complete when that is the case. What I do like is when GOTY or Complete editions are being sold because everything is (or should be) on the disc. That is the best bang for buck. That being said, I am wondering if Mario Rabbids will ever have a complete or "definitive" edition with all the content on the cartridge. Same goes for Zelda BotW
