  There probably won't be one, actually. That's not really Namco or Bandai's MO - I'm having trouble thinking of even one game where they released a Definitive Edition or something like it. It's not that common for Japanese publishers, especially now that they're trying to keep fighting games limited to one version and just balancing it through downloadable updates, and financing those updates with additional DLC characters.

That's very true and well said. How easily I forget that Bandai Namco doesn't give their fighting games the cash grabbing Capcom treatment. It would be sad if it's the last in the SC series. It's easily one of my favorite fighting games.

The irony of Namco just releasing an Ultimate Edition of Tekken 7 with both season passes in it.

When people say "wait for Definitive/GOTY/Super/Arcade edition" of a fighting game, they mean they're not going to pay carte blanche for additional characters - they're going to wait for a complete, affordable version of the game that has all the characters. That Tekken 7 Ultimate Edition is not that - it's just a bundle of the game and all the DLC. You're not saving any money as if you bought them separately.

Sure, but it'll still go on sale.

Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but what the heck.

I just got a PS4 Pro the other day and own 3 games (Spider-Man, Fifa 18 and Fortnite)

Is the PS store the best place to buy cheap PS4 games?

Also assuming that joining PS+ is a no-brainer too (does joining costs ever go on sale?)


Digital wise, yes the PS store is a great option to buy a game at a discount when they are discounted. PS+ not only gives you like 10% more in discount, you get those “free” games too. I have a Pro but since I mostly buy PS4 exclusives and the majority of them are single player, I haven’t renewed PS+ in awhile. But BF is coming up so I may snag a PS+ sub if the price is right. And you should link your PSN account to Sony Rewards, you get points back from buying from the PS store and you can use those points when you get enough to redeem PSN gift cards.

...And you should link your PSN account to Sony Rewards, you get points back from buying from the PS store and you can use those points when you get enough to redeem PSN gift cards.

Just in case, after linking your PSN account to a Sony Rewards one, don't forget to enable the 3 trophy passes so you can earn points for getting new trophies.

10 platinums net you a 1000 points, 25 gold = 250 points, and 100 silver = 100 points. A code for $10 psn credit is 1000 points. I think its been said you can get each rewards ten 12 times? I know when I finished the gold one, my counter started over.

 

There's also a pass you can enable where they'll give you a 15% off coupon if you try out the 4 different psn services (ps+, vue, now, music). Just make sure to disable auto renewal & cancel before they end so you don't get charged.

 

edit: Lastly, if you watch a Sony movie at the theaters, you can submit the stub for 200 points and each movie can be submitted twice. The movie "Searching" was the last one I did and submissions expire 9/17. The next ones should be "White Boy Rick" which comes out tomorrow and then "Venom" in Oct. The ways to earn section will have more details in case they change.

Given the weak entry that was VC2 and last entry in the franchise (Revolution) that wasn't worth touching, I'm going to hold off on VC4.


You might be making a mistake. Valkyria Chronicles 4 has been getting great reviews. It’s considered the best entry since the 1st game or at least on par with it.

Valkyria Revolution was an abomination. Was an action not even strategy RPG.

I'm definitely interested in VC4 and Fist of the North Star but those will probably be two I wait for sales on simply due to a lack of time to play everything I want to especially since I suddenly have a girlfriend now. :D

Is that a euphemism for something? My "girlfriend" (PS4 controller) gives me awesome hummers. How do you even have time? Dear god, I'm a lost cause.

 

I'm hoping to finally get around to Assassin's Creed Origins when Odyssey comes out.

You can earn up to 12 per calendar year. So far, I've netted all 12 gold rewards, 8 silvers and 5 platys. It definitely pays to sign up.

Thanks for this! I didn’t know about the trophy passes so this is very helpful.

Thanks for the advice guys, did not know that I could link my Sony Rewards 

 

To be fair, I actually CAN'T link my Sony rewards account because every time I try to sign into my PSN, I get Captcha and after 14 attempts of trying to prove I am not a robot, I'm giving up.... 

 

*edit* and lucky 17 was the charm!

 

Thanks again guys!

I hate those Recaptchas. I can't even log into either the PS App or the PS Messenger App anymore because you have to enter you login information and then click a checkbox to make a captcha pop up, but it never, ever pops up anymore. But of course, it's sooo important to have a captcha built into mobile apps for all those robots who own cell phones.  Grrr...

I had all kinds of trouble with recaptcha on Chrome, so much so that I would load up Edge to get past them.  They would either say try again even though I correctly identified all the busses etc. Or the captcha would get a check mark, I would hit submit, and then get an error that captcha wasn't corect.

 

I recently switched to Firefox and now they go through on the first try.  Which is funny since recaptcha is powered by Google.  I have had a ton of other things broken in Chrome that are just smooth in Firefox.  Wish I had migrated sooner.

I don't know. The verbiage makes it sound like you have to buy a PS4 Slim in order to get a year of PS+ for that price.

Was anyone able to get this? I played it last night and mine was still on version 1.02, i'm in NA and on a PS4.

 

 

Edit: My bad, apparently it's out now.

It's always nice when you preorder a game 6 months in advance and it doesn't even ship out on its street date.

 

Maybe I missed a recaptcha somewhere along the way.

Its not exactly down its being restructured or improved or some crap lol. It will be back up “soon”. Guess they’ll let us know by email (and then proceed to flog us with merchandise spam mail until we’re forced to unsubscribe).

That seems strange to me. Why did you pre-order if you haven't even played the other 2 yet? Unless you got like a super limited edition copy.

Two reasons.  The first is that it's the steelbook version that includes the Season Pass.  Who knows how long it will take before it drops to a decent price, and with the discount plus $10 back in points, it may be the lowest I'd be able to get it for a while.  The second is that my girlfriend isn't a gamer and is cheaper than anyone on this site, and since we're talking about tying the knot, I should get in my big purchases while I can.
