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?


Yeah I’ve seen this game advertised on places like it’s jusr around the corner for the last year or so

Dang.  Must've just missed that Cnuff edition.  Would've been a great score at about $32

Waited too long on the $8 Xcom2 couldn't make myself pay $4 for shipping. Ended up with Recore and Skyrim Dragon born bundle for $14.84 after tax not bad.

Lucked out and got XCom 2 (PS4) for $7.99 after GCU.  I missed out on it the first time it was on clearance many months ago, but I don't believe it got below $14.99 back then.

 

Some of the new clearance stuff had been sold out well before the price dropped.  For example Musynx (Switch) had been sold out since release and as far as I know never came back in stock.  Will be something to keep an eye on when the standard editions start coming into stores (the launch edition has a limited alternate cover, which is why it sold out).  If Best Buy carries the standard edition they may be lazy and use the $14.99 clearance listing to put it up for sale.

What the hell is Best buy doing. The Cena Nuff goes down to $37 and they still have the Hitman collector's edition for $133.

 

This is so weird, they're listing PS3 soccer games from 2011. Must be a warehouse clearout.

Actually need to call and get a PM on The Crew since it’s within the 45 days as a Elite Plus member.

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.

Sure, but at the expense of stability. I bought Pixeljunk Monsters 2 for Switch for that reason (same price BTW, as the grand majority of other cross platform games, so justifications for Overcooked are moot) but regretted it after trying the ps4 version's demo - the switch version on my TV literally made me nauseas at times because of the low framerate and, even worse, sporadic frame drops. Add in a second player (same screen! No split!) and watch it decrease even more.

We need to stop pretending every cross plat game on switch is "the same, but you get to play it on a plane!" Wolfenstein and Doom at 30 fps are not Wolfenstein and Doom, IMO. There are concessions that hav to be made for Switch versions, and that should also be taken into account she considering price.

I was deadpanning.  I thought the rickshaw reference would be the clue to that.  Can you imagine Newman playing on the Switch while Kramer pulls him?  Mind your pace, boy, I'm trying to play some Mario Kart.  :lol:

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.


From insider reports on gaf and reset era, it seems like a switch cart costs 60% more to make for a developer than a blu ray based game in terms of cart vs disc.

It’s rom memory I believe which costs a lot more per gigabyte than blu Ray. It’s not great but that’s the main hybrid console compromise

Took the free game deal out of the OP. It was listed on the promos for this week but it seems they never activated it. Target has the same deal so it was probably supposed to be a universal deal across multiple stores. :-k

What are the odds Target would throw in a free game if I tried to ask in-store after getting the $193 Xbone X last month?

I want to get Skyrim for $12 but the shipping hurts the deal a bit and I can't find anything to pair it with.

If anyone uses swagbucks there is a best buy QR Code you can get and scan in the store for this week. If you buy anything in the ad online or in-store you get 2 swagbucks per $1 spent. Also a 500 Swagbuck bonus if you spend $50 or more online via the weekly ad or  in-store using the QR Code. I plan on using it in-store when I pick up Madden.

 

Look for the Best buy banner at the top of the website.

I heard a rumor that Mall of America was shutting down entirely so maybe that’s why?

The Nintendo tax is still a thing I see.

As long as we pay it, yea....?

I find it more reasonable than the Apple tax personally, so count me in for Overcooked 2.

Just put $5 down for HOF edition of nfl 19. Never ever really stood outside bestbuy for midnight release so I’m just wondering if they’ll release that at midnight or 9 or somethin and if you’d have to have it fully paid off to pick it up as soon as t comes out

I am sure it has an embargo. Not sure when the embargo is up, but I have little faith in the game after all the delays. My wife wants to play it though, so I'll probably pick it up anyway.

I just want it to finally release so I can stop hearing about it and seeing it constantly. More annoying than Binding of Isaac, Astro Bears Party, and Street Fighter 5 presences combined.

What's wrong with Binding of Issac and Street Fighter V? Can't comment on Astro Bears Party, I have no idea what that is.

I'm not speaking to their quality, just their amount of presence. Rehashes, copy/paste sales, etc.

Midnight releases aren't really much of a thing at Best Buy anymore. My guess is they will only do them for COD, Red Dead and Smash this year.

Gamestop doesn't even do midnight releases anymore. Like movies, midnight releases seem to have been replaced by the 9pm "early" release. 

 

My local Best Buy would do midnight releases for most major releases and would always get a solid turnout, but I haven't seen them do one in several years. I am guessing the amount of people showing up versus the cost of keeping the store open until midnight wasn't worth doing.

I have bought 3 plain editions GTA 5’s for PS4. 1 for me and 2 others as gifts earlier this year. I am thinking about trading in my plain GTA 5 for $12.01 with my GCU trade in bonus. Can I buy GTA 5 Premium Online Edition with my GCU and not getting banned? I know you are limited to 3 copies per year with GCU but I can’t remember how it works with other editions. Also could I buy it at full price in store/online without My Best Buy account and add the receipt later online?

Anyone else notice they removed the LEGO Dimensions Starter Packs from BB? They were all on clearance with a bunch of other games but have since been removed from the site.
