This is absolutely shocking. Not the policy that you describe, but that you actually wrote this thinking someone here didn't know Sony profits off the store.

As for the rest of your post, sure, I mean yeah, you're bending over backwards to say Sony controls sales. And sure, Sony could give every single game away for free as long as it paid the Publishers their desired amount. But that's missing the point. The fact is, in practice, Publishers control the sales. When you see a sale price during a sale, the publisher set it. Just because in theory, Sony could have a sale by reducing there cut doesn't mean they suddenly have control over the price , nor does it mean it's how things are done.


I'm not sure why you keep trying to twist this into a Sony versus Microsoft thing, because that has nothing to do with it.

yes sir --   you keep being you

The true travesty is that Best Buy charges extra for alternative packaging such as Steelbooks when they are clearly purposefully made in limited supply just to grant an aura of rarity.  And you know that none of that money goes to the alchemists who divined the formula to make the steel.

Any thoughts on Matterfall? Looks fun but seems short. Has anyone here played it?

Need for Speed Rivals. Fun game. It has a cops chasing racers thing going for it like NFS Most Wanted and Hot Pursuit. These games are what Criterion moved onto after Burnout Paradise. Rivals isn’t the best one, but it’s the only one on PS4 and it’s pretty dang good.

Thanks! Probably grab it.

I love Burnout, couldn't get interested in Rivals.

Bought Catlateral Damage for when I eventually get psvr. Three bucks from the wallet, I've bought worse.

Is the new Need For Speed any good? I played Rivals on PC and it was pretty good but don't know if I want to double dip and get it for PS4. I really miss the NFS Underground games

Everything "Purchased" in my library and for less than what I paid for it. Check.

It says 5/21 8am PST.

Different strokes for different fucks. Life is Strange, Firewatch and Edith Finch are among my favorite games, but they're not for everyone. You have to enjoy narrative adventures and interactive storytelling.

I loved it but I enjoy almost all the Need for Speed games.

I think Frisky is busy but you can use Reddit's list in the meantime.

I was about to buy the EA Family Pack that contains this game, but after I researched it, I discovered that the game won't even run without being online. I don't have PS Plus, and if I can't get online someday, that will also make that Need for Speed game useless. So I think that I might pass on it.

Right now, I'm looking at purchasing Party Golf for PS4 although I don't know much about it and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for PS3. But both are cheap. Any thoughts on Party Golf?

So I found a loop with GameStop and Don’t Starve Together Mega Pack. The discs are faulty and don’t contain all the advertised content. So when you buy the hardcopy in store they print you a code out on your receipt that is SUPPOSED to give you everything they missed (pretty much everything but DST I believe); however it actually gives you the entire digital version of the Mega Pack.

You can literally purchase the game, enter the code on your phone app, then return the hard copy.

I'm pretty sure you're wrong. You can still play the story mode without PS Plus. In fact, maybe people prefer turning off other players joining in while playing the story mode anyway, since other Racers can mess up your race

So you’re required to open the game and keep it so as to appease the moral gods?

You’re somethin’ else.

No, I just won't buy the game to keep the DLC that was meant for the game because of an error on the publishers part.

You keep pissing off the moral gods, though...

Anyone know if Need for Speed Rivals has separate trophy lists on PS3 and PS4? I planted it on PS4 but I'm debating Double dipping. Need for Speed is probably my favorite franchise and I can never get enough. I am buying hot Pursuit even though I already plotted it.

That's probably my biggest problem with trophies... I find it hard to go back to games that I've already Plated like Hot Pursuit or demon souls. I wish that wasn't so.

The first code I received was on Friday night because I was inquiring about the situation. A local GS employee printed me a code and handed it to me as proof.

To think, it only took 23 months from Sean Murray trying to hand wave two players not being able to see or interact with each other on the same planet because of "server issues" to actually having a multiplayer component.

PSA: the current Flash Sale ends at 12 noon EST today.  Make your purchases before that time!

 

I grabbed the EA Family Pack and Party Golf for PS4 and the Jak & Daxter Collection and Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit for PS3.  I don't know if and when I'll ever play any of these games or even download them, but oh what a deal! ;)
