So in regards to Crash...what's the best way to play it?  On the go on the Switch?  X-enhanced on the X1X?  Or original-type controller on the PS4?  Any thoughts?

In terms of graphics & frame rate, etc it goes XB1X>PS4 Pro>PS4>XB1>Switch

I’d been patiently waiting for the Xbox version to drop (have an X). Yesterday I was playing a free rental of the game on PS4 and was loving it. I was loving it so much that it was making me think unclearly. I very nearly went out and paid $30 to get it and that’s way over my normal limit. To have gotten it for $15+tax (gcu-$1 store pickup) makes me so happy, and only had to hold out for one extra day

I got it on the Switch b/c it feels better as a portable game imo.

I say the switch because of the option of portability.

Aw yiss, I've been waiting forever for this.

I see the PS4 has two versions; one says it has the three bonus levels included. Is it actually on disc?

Looks like the newer "version" contains 2 bonus levels, according to the cover; the description states, "download with no additional charge on the PlayStation store." Is this DLC included with the original version, despite there being no indication on the cover?

Great thanks.  I have recently started to want Crash Trilogy for Switch and saw it was $30 and was going to wait to Black Friday to see if it dropped to $20, but now that it's $20 today I'll snag it.

I’ve seen the future and it’s going to be $10 on Black Friday.

Best Buy doesn’t price match Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday. If history repeats itself GCU will be disabled for Black Friday items.

Thanks a lot, OP.  I'm actually going to be travelling today and tomorrow, so I could pick this up in-store for an additional $1 off.  $16.04 total!

 

Bring on the 90s/PSX nostalgia!

Can you flip one of each system versions without getting banned?

Technically yes. But I would not take all 3 games to trade in to one store. I would make at least 2 trips.
Gcu limit is 3/yr.
Gamestop trade limit is 4/ 30 days.

There are two SKUs, the one with the "2 bonus levels included" banner on the cover is the more recent second print run.  The bonus levels are included on disc for this newer version.  The older SKU without the banner still has free access to these bonus levels, but through online patch only, not on disc.

 

Also, to anyone wondering, COD: Modern Warfare Remastered's single player campaign is complete on disc, despite the alarming "Requires Internet" disclaimer on the cover.  It is highly advised to patch to a more recent version if you're going for the platinum, however, as there is a pretty sweet glitch introduced in an update that makes the Veteran difficulty trophies much easier (you only have to beat the very last checkpoint of each level on Veteran using the glitch... still no joke since you'll have to do things like the ferris wheel extraction legit, but for instance Mile High Club's strict time limit can be bypassed).

I hope you like 30fps, because you left out the only way to do better: "But the console builds are still pegged to 30fps - one of the only real disappointments we had with this remaster - and that's where the PC version can make a difference."

God, i remember doing the Mile High Club trophy on 360. it was probably the hardest trophy/achievement i've ever done. it took me hours just to be able to make it to the hostage standoff. luckily, i was able to make the shot the first time when i finally did make it there. the ferris wheel extraction was really hard as well but still fun for the most part.

Hey does anyone know about that gcu expiring coupon? Mine ends oct13th and I still can't find it in my emails.. would love to preorder RDR with it. Think I should call CS or something?

I did MW Veteran legit on 360 and PS4. If someone has to cheat to beat it on Veteran whats the point? I felt the remastered version was easier anyway.

You're talking about making a profit of maybe $5 on each game and that's in Gamestop credit.  Hardly seems worth it but maybe I just don't get the "art" of flipping.

It's not much, but it's decent for a credit mover. I had $100 in BB gift cards, and some GameStop-exclusives preorders coming up, so I used this.

Don't forget -$1 if you switch from mailed delivery to pick up. Got my copy for $14.99 with that assist!

To each his own. I’m keeping the Switch version and trading the xbox and ps4 versions.
Btw, you don’t get it bc it’s a small $8 flip/game maxed out with gcu and elite.
With Black Friday in the near future, I don’t mind some extra GS credit.
