Making those carts taste bitter costs money, friend.

Believe it or not, the carts cost more than a disc.

What the shit is these happy few?  Playstation Store has had it on there for what seems like a year for purchase/preorder whatever.  So this is saying it's actually coming out?

Any recommendations on a PSVR? I really want one all of a sudden but probably feel like it's because I have disposable income.

Finally leaving early access, hopefully with the full promised story instead of the bullshit survival they debuted as.

And PSVR was just on sale, wait for the next one.

I don’t trust the switch version after the first one had issues not present the pc/PS4 version.

It’s fantastic and well worth getting. That being said, there have been some pretty deep discounts lately and you’re probably better off sticking the money in savings until the next big sale on it. I assume you’d probably be mad at yourself if it went on sale for like $75-100 off after you already bought it? If not, go ahead and jump in now

I got it in Early Access and they did already add some of those story elements to it a while back, as well as really toning down the survival stuff.

 

I think it'll be pretty good, but I haven't checked on it in a while because I wanted to see everything when it fully releases. Not a fan of how when Gearbox came into the fold they jacked up the price, though.

Free game up to $59.99 with any Xbox console...Been looking for a deal towards a One X and I'm guessing this is about as good an incentive for it we're going to see at BB for awhile? (unless I missed a previous offer).

I wouldn't expect any deep discounts on the X until holiday. They obviously priced it at $500 to not lose money even though everyone was insisting that $400 would be the sweet spot.

I believe that, but $10 more? Pressing a Blu-ray film costs about $2. I imagine a game is similar or more expensive. I doubt it costs $12 to manufacture a single cartridge.

Looking like it. Was really hoping to see Detroit sub-40 by now. Also keeping an eye on stuff like Vampyr and Sushi Striker, but they've been stubborn thus far. The black Friday list grows.

If you waited this long, what's another 3 months or so to see what BF has to offer?

You can sit on your ass on your couch and play it on your tv and you can sit on your ass on a bus or a plane or a train or a rickshaw and play it.  That's worth $10 more each time.  You certainly shouldn't deny yourself that experience.

Yeah I guess so. Don't think there were any One X BF deals last year...only for the S.  Not a surprise, since it was brand new. But with it being one year older, maybe this time. Gonna dive in at some point.

During E3 it was $450. Can't imagine it won't be at least that as well. I'd love if it was $100 off. Not for myself but others who want one. Got my PSE console at launch.

Wont see it yet, that rarely leaks early.

**

Just as a side note.. had to go into BB tonight to pick up an order for my parents (long story)
Anyway... while waiting i asked the clerk about GCU and if he heard if BB will be replacing it.. he was a gamer and was bummed about it going away also.
He has heard nothing.. the only thing they ever heard about it was the day BB killed it, that memo that was leaked. He has seen nothing after that. Sucks.

Take it as-is, could mean nothing.

Anyway, back to the N tax bitching.

The kicker is that it's $15 more than the eShop price.

I don’t trust the switch version after the first one had issues not present the pc/PS4 version.

The issues were patched pretty early on. I've enjoyed Overcooked 1 without any major issues post-patch.

I believe that, but $10 more? Pressing a Blu-ray film costs about $2. I imagine a game is similar or more expensive. I doubt it costs $12 to manufacture a single cartridge.

It's the combination of licensing, manufacturing, and packaging costs that Nintendo charges to third-party publishers (http://www.nintendol..._use_game_cards). Nintendo argues that higher capacity carts do cost more, so unfortunately, the Switch tax is real.

And if you read it... it said they planned to replace gcu.
We are waiting for that replacement, which we doubt there even is one.
