So someone thinks people will buy a $10 Playstation game for $50?

That Xbox Live deal is OK if you don’t want to buy a whole year, I guess. An effective price of $15 for 3 months makes it equivalent to the $60 MSRP for a year.

The only thing it has going for it for me is the inventory of older games. Best Buy seems to keep a larger inventory and for longer than Target or Walmart, so it’s still my go to for titles at the $20 price point.

No Man's Sky? The Xbox version is the complete version on disc, not that beta test garbage that launched on PS4.

Yeah, I have mine until early 2020. But, with lack of trade in bonuses and the terrible sales they have been offering lately. I don't see myself doing much shopping there once my GCU is gone.

The current promo is on the front of the ad.

Agreed but it's free
They are still dreaming if they think they can sell a game for $50 that a larger user base can get for $10+free

If someone has an Xbox One but no PS4, it doesn't matter how much that larger user base can get it for.

That being said, I won't pay $50.

Which is the same game on the PS4 now. Soooooo, still silly to buy it on the Xbox unless you have no other option.

Or even willing to buy with all the horrible press/reviews the ps4 version received.

Would be like metal gear survive releasing for the switch... for more than it did on ps4/xbox.

I'm sure that is their thinking, however, due to all the great press and good will that No Man's Sky generated with the community I'm sure games will be flying off the shelf.
:p

Free update and I think you're in the minority if you think people with both consoles will buy the more expensive one.
I'm not trying to change your mind just telling you what I think and I am willing to wager the community would agree with me.
On top of that I don't think it will be well received by the Xbox community to charge so much for a title that is getting the same update for free on the competition

I'd be a player at $9.99-14.99. That should be attainable around a month from now. REALLY wish there was a game like FREELANCER.

This is the part that irks me.  I'm the kind of person who refuses to pay more for something if it's had a lower price elsewhere, regardless of platform.  If a game has been on sale for 1.99 on Steam, then I won't buy it for my Xbox unless it hits that price or lower.  Platform should be irrelevant; you're getting the exact same experience.  It should cost the same.

That Injustice deal is looking great! If it brings Injustice 2 down to $30 then has GCU on top of that I’ll be doing that.

$50 for No Man Sky on the XBO?! Good luck with that. I paid $12 (brand new) for the PS4, 3 months after it's released

I've never bought anything there, ever.  Never.  Not once.

It works for the switch every time.

 

I'm sadder about GCU going away than TRU.  Even worse that it can be saved if they so choose.

I cant believe Detroit hasn't gone on sale yet. I was planning on getting it the first time it hit 40, but might as well wait until Black Friday at this rate.
