Does GCU still get 20% off these prices?

Funny to see Overcooked $10 more on Switch.

Like others, feel this a rather underwhelming sale, looks like only Hellblade PS4 for me.

That said, I'm glad BBY does more game sales now. Clearly a result of them getting rid of their gamer discount program.

It's also funny to see how willing and eager Ninty fanboys are to defend and pay the Switch premium that publishers charge on their old @$$ games. Also a hoot when these idiots defend the practice of publishers who don't even put the whole damn game on the cartridge. "They're trying to keep costs down for us." That's the "great" American education system at work there.

I would agree to a premium on all switch games because last I checked I can't walk around with my xbox or playstation or do mobile play on the fucking subway.  But with your little needless anger in a game deal forum about American education system, you're probably too busy doing some solo forum comment raids to think outside the box.

I'm down for a new Galaxy 10+ for $100. Fingers crossed.

Make it unlocked and you got a deal.

And here is exhibit 1, ladies and gentlemen. We all understand Switch games are mobile. What no one should reasonably be defending (as you are) is the practice of selling "old" games that one can typically buy on PS4 for $10 for $40-50. See, e.g., Doom. Overcooked can also easily be found for $10, too, on PS4. No one is disputing the notion of a convenience premiums, but 400-500%? How quick fanboys are to come to these publishers' defense on this is laughable.

Eh, probably the worse part is that even a halfway capable PC (even a notebook) would be able to play all of these just fine... and you'd get them for even cheaper than PS4 and especially Switch. 

As it stands, the only stuff I buy for Switch are Nintendo titles, third party titles that don't manage to make to pc, or indie stuff that ends up only showing up on the switch store. (Like Golf Story).

The only PS4 stuff I end up picking up are PS4 exclusive titles,  multiplatform console exclusives (because the PS4 version is typically the cheapest) and the occassion jrpg that only manages to make it to the PS4. 

Xbox One purchases are pretty much limited to exclusives too. 

As is, between Twitch Prime, Xbox Game Pass, Games given away with Playstation Plus, Games given away by Epic Game Store, I've barely enough time to play the games I'm "given", let alone buying more. (And even then, bundles still usually give better value.)

For the most part, I really am to a point where I just wait out even the biggest of AAA titles until they drop to $10-20, unless there's a reason to pay near retail (like I want to be playing the game at the same time as friends.)

Yeah if you knock the Switch at all it's always "but, but, but, can you take XXXX with you on the go?"

 

 Buying overpriced, compromised ports are worth it because it's mobile. Sarcasm. Oh and that great battery life. The Switch is maybe good for 4 or 5 games. I own 2. Most people play ports and Indie games elsewhere. 

 

Those deals are mostly C level stuff with a few good ones.

for a long time people kept saying BB doesn't put up good sales due to gamersclub but they have been bad for a while and i don't think amazing BB deals on consistent bases will ever come back.  Gamestop has better prices on almost any deal BB has going on

GCU apparently doesn't apply to the early access prices.  Pssh, Fuck this sale, then.

correction for the list above, Dragon Marked for death is $15.  looks like it was pointed out.

 

REALLY tempted on picking it up at that price point.

2 of the magma DualShock 4 controller for $71.98 is pretty good. That’s the best deal I see.

Note that the digital $15 version of the game does not come with all the characters like the physical copy does. The additional ones cost more on digital.

 

Just ordered it, with free shipping it should be here friday!

Damnit, DMfD sold out as I was entering my info...wanted that for $15. Can't even view the page now and I KNOW it's in stock at a local store. Oh well. I hear you basically need to play multiplayer for it to be good anyways.

^ Same here, Dragon Mark of Death was removed from my cart on checkout. Probably for the best, I'm sure it will drop that low again before the end of the year.
