Any thoughts on the TB headsets? Are these at a good price? I’m just now getting into the market for one, so thanks in advance. My priorities are a crystal clear mic for my friends and decent audio for Hellblade.


I use the newer model Golds. Good sound. No mic in your face and if the battery starts to die it’s easy to plug them right into the DualShock. They also work with the Switch I’ve heard. You can find them for $80 ish even less if eBay has a coupon going on. Good luck.

So your advice is what, to not be competitive for the next two years?

 

bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch.

 

I guess I need a CAG break because the complaining in EVERY thread is really getting to me. 

Who is more competitive than BB right now? While Gamestop has certainly stepped up their game in the last year, Best Buy still has better and more frequent sales than them, Target (aside from stupid glitches), Walmart, Amazon, and whoever else you want to name. Even without GCU, how many stores have God of War for $50 right now? I realize that's not a deep discount, but jesus christ, they're not in business to constantly sell shit at a loss so nerd can feel good about himself for spending money on something he doesn't really want and is only buying because it's cheap. Physical sales are going away. These stores can't make up in volume what they lose in profit anymore. It just doesn't make sense to give shit away anymore. 

 

And before the chorus of "well this is cheap ass gamer dood" begins, yes it is. You can be a cheap ass and wait for the inevitable decent price to come along (and they always do) without having to bitch that a whole 24 hours has passed since there was a deal worth getting. Find something else to do with your time. Maybe play one of the cheap games you got already instead of letting it sit in a pile until you decide to go sell it somewhere else, and then bitch about how bad the trade in values are.

 

xxx ooo

:3ds: Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns never came into stock for shipping, and no store within 250 miles of me carries it (even checked some random zips around the country and found nothing). Why include it in the sale BB?

Even $16 is too much for a 3 hour game. If you're interested, I would wait for under $10.

It's not just you man.  This thread is filled with ludicrous replies.  Best Buy has been setting the retail standard of video game sales for many years.  A lot of people can't see anything past themselves though.

Don’t get me wrong if money wasn’t an option I’d try Astro’s or Hyper X headsets. Golds are good value headsets for a casual gamer like me.

I'm an Astro fan. I also use the Gold Playstation headphones. My friend has Steelseries and really like it. I had TB wireless headset several years ago and it hurt to wear with my glasses. I also got a lot of interference so I'm hesitant to buy TB again.

 

 

Personally I haven't had much luck with tb products. They either don't fit my head comfortably or I get the ones that break. Luckily before the return policy expires. So I don't buy them or tritans anymore.
I have razer and astro. I want to get another razer for my Xbox one to replace the standard headset that came with the system lol.
Oh also check out some ear buds if you like those.

Thanks everyone. I wear glasses as well so I’ll be steering clear of these and keep an eye out for a good sale on some Astros. Cheers!

I’m pretty sure I remember it being available for shipping right when early access started Thursday. I was back and forth on rather I wanted it and when I checked that morning it was sold out.

After Black Friday, Best Buy usually always has a $50 off sale on Astros.  Only consistent sale I see on them.

Seems to be a trend around here. It's why I post less and less frequently. I have picked up tons of games for my backlog this year alone so I dont know where all this bitchin is coming from on almost every thread.

Am I the only one who actually like to visit Best Buy stores?  GCU was awesome while it lasted.  Maybe they can do some better sale prices from time to time since they know they don't have to build in a buffer in the price for all the folks with GCU

Agreed. Not sure where one would have gotten games cheaper on a consistent basis with a small investment in GCU. Of course the cancellation of GCU is a downer but I think they'll come up with something else before the last membership expires.

Nope, I do too. It's fun to browse, scope out the open box, etc. Of course, since I like looking through the media more than anything, it kinda sucks Best Buy is minimizing those footprints in stores ...

eBay is where to do it but hit up pawn shops, craigslist, facebook marketplace etc.
 

It's a little more work but the payout is a lot more. You'd be surprised how many people will sell stuff like 3DS XL lots with a boaload of valuable games for $100 or less.

You can't point to the past and assume that's the current situation. They did set the standard (which I mentioned already BTW) but are now competing against themselves.

If you guys perceive objectively negative assessment of the current situation as "complaining", you need some more context in your life. Only young people without a willingness to learn or lightly debate see that as "negative" and "harshing my mellow man". Grow up; either reply with something fruitful, or move along. The blanket statement "this thread is filled with ludicrous replies" is in fact ludicrous - it offers nothing.

So in 2020 or 2021? You know they can't wait that long, right?

i would be surprised if gcu (at least in its current 20% form) is still around at all in 2019 regardless how long one many have extended their memberships

I have GCU through 2020.   They also have a new program in the works.  Best Buy rocks.  Amazon is the one PM'ing them, instead of having their own sales.  Complain more.  Grow up, yourself.  People like you bring this site down.  How's that for fruitful? 

 

You can Fuck right off.

This is what I suspect. They'll officially remove the program next year and "compensation" those of us with time left by giving a coupon or discount on their new service.

Who's the one being a bitch?That'd be you.

What kind of loser misuses the buying/selling feedback system to leave a negative just because he (or she!) is a shaqing baby. The kind of loser that is CheepyDee!

 

edit: Cheepydee has since removed the feedback and so I've removed the link to it. I figured that may happen so I screen capped it. https://i.imgur.com/acW6muX.jpg

 

p.s. Screaming? I purposely used small letters.
