This is a great deal. A new MG for $22+tax after GCU and gift card. The login rewards event to celebrate the game's launch begins tomorrow too.

Why are you iffy? There's been two betas already, so you should have some idea of if you like the game or not.

By including the e gift card as a discount on the purchase price. Then when you use it, you get another $10 off, its practically free money!

They may as well just give the game away for free. And I still wouldn't want it.

Yeah I hope this shit tanks hard. I'm not trying to thread crap, but when they fired Kojima, it was some BS.

Pardon my ignorance, but how do you do that? How do you include the e gift card as a discount on the purchase price?

You can't and don't.  It's virtual accounting.  They're saying the game is $40, and with GCU 20% discount it becomes $32.  You get a $10 gift card towards a future purchase, so it's "essentially" as if the game only cost you $32-$10 = $22 even though you're still paying $32 out of pocket.

Which is ok, except all to often here it's virtual accounted a second time.

 

"Awesome, got Far Cry 5 for $28 practically since I had that eGift Card from awhile back"

Careful guys I preordered the game and I’m still waiting for my eGift card. Contacted customer service but they just gave me the “please wait and check your emails” response.

That is what I thought. The way jacknicklson explained it, I interpreted it as if you could use the e gift towards the purchase of the game and still receive an extra e gift card. "By including the e gift card as a discount on the purchase price. Then when you use it, you get another $10 off, its practically free money!" Thanks.

Kojima is overrated ... this game isn’t as bad as some people are making it sound. I liked MGS ... didn’t love MGS II, IV aged poorly and V was unfinished ... This game isn’t amazing but it’s somewhat fun and decent for the price.

This. When death stranding doesn't end up living up to the hype, everybody will hopefully come to the realization it wasn't necessarily all konami's fault and kojima is equally if not more to blame for mgs v being disappointing.

I'm sure it's not great, but everybody is on the "let's hate Konami for firing kojima" bandwagon.

Both of you couldn't be more wrong. And V wasn't finished simply because he wasn't able to have his creative freedom.

I agree I am a long time Kojima fan. but Konami has to cut him loose. Do you realize the production cost of his games? The company was bleeding cash. Which is most likely the reason they went back to making gambling machines. now don't get me wrong Konami is could have parted with guy classer. the game is getting mixed reviews. right now game may be dead because it cost $10 bucks to create another saved character. so you can always use the $10 to buys a PSN card. either way this game may find it popularity surging when it his the bargain bin.

So any other company would be fine with letting an employee have unlimited resources, time, money, and complete free reign over a project and not fire them when they have had very little to show for all that. Get real.

Question

 

If I return the copy I ordered, what happens to the gift card?

 

I haven't used it yet. I just don't want to be charged.

Who is crucifying it? All I see at Metacritic is a 6/10 from Cheat Code Central and 76% positive on Steam. You can't take all the zeros from user "reviews" at Metacritic seriously since most of them have probably not even played the game. That said, I am a bit tempted by this deal. Didn't get to play the beta but it looks ok from the videos I've watched.

Not defending Konami but will you even need to make a new character? Are there different classes that you can only select on a fresh character?

I've never read a thread so full of people being salty over not being able to understand the intricate story of the greatest game series of all time before.

 

First time for everything, I guess.
