Or stop obsessing over metal cases. That would do a lot of good for many people here.

But what other worthless item can I collect to take up space in my closet? Cheaply made video game statues?

No, you gotta go with something more plentiful, cheaper in cost and creatively bankrupt.

Side question:

 

How much GCU did BB allow you to stack while it was still available?  A lot of people still seem to have it despite it shutting down over a year ago.

 

Well I have mine through 2022 and I haven’t renewed for at least 3 years...maybe more. So I stacked at least 6 years. It was something ridiculous with a phone deal if I remember? I think it was free with any phone purchase and it was working with a $10 tracphone or something. Sold the phones on amazon.

Probably because they know Origins is the better game, with no (nor need for) "timesaving" microtransactions. They should go all out and treat Odyssey as a F2P game.

I Platinumed Odyssey and never felt like I needed to purchase xp boosts or any other microtransaction.  There are plenty of interesting side quests to do if you happen to be too low of a level for the main quest, which I never was. I mean if you just want to rush the main quest or have to bitch for the sake of it about any game that has microtransactions, then yeah, you might not like Odyssey. 

 

Sale related, is Best Buy price matching previous purchases during this sale or treating it like normal Black Friday with no matching?

Wasn't there a glitch where you only needed to purchase a $3 sim card or something and you got a year of GCU with it?

I'm on the fence whether I want to finally get that Odyssey Gold Edition. I sadly couldn't get it at GS because there wasn't any on my area, but with GCU its like 6 dollars more plus taxes. Don't know if this will be cheaper or not.

Don't forget about art books and CE strategy guides, the fire hazards of the collecting world.

Hey now. You can put those all over your 80s backpack and be the envy of the schoolyard.

Finally bought the PS4 Sega Genesis collection for $12 with gcu. I wish this version came with some of the arcade alternates like the last gen version did.

Lol now there's many of the same prices (some better) and GCU applies. BB has conditioned me to simply not even glance at any of their "off-season black friday" ads

Well I didn't get any games with this sale, but I did buy something game related....... a 65" Sony X950G television for $1500 (its already back to $1800 "sale price"). Its one of the best rated and brightest pictures and has low input lag. It gets delivered tomorrow and I can not wait to game on it with the PS4 Pro and next year, the PS5.

Yea, I almost bought it to replace my ~10 ms 3D TV, but decided to wait to see what the PS5 offers first. The X950G Is almost 20 ms latency in 1080p, so it's a downgrade gaming wise, but the picture is pretty nice. A large reason I didn't buy it is because I don't have a 4K player yet. If only the PS4 played 4K Blu-rays.

I have been gaming on it for the past couple hours and I LOVE IT! I upgraded from a 10 year old Samsung 1080p set and the picture with full HDR at 4K is mind blowing to me. Just keep the tv on "game mode" and the latency is fine for me. My games seem new again and the graphics really pop with color and clarity. I still will tweak some settings on the tv, but its worth every penny to me. Even streaming content like movies looks great. Too bad none of my blu-rays are 4K. But the tv still upscales content pretty well and looks fantastic to me on "normal" media.

So, anybody know what happened to the madden trade in deal this year? Did it just not get posted on here? I'm so used to getting madden for cheap that now I refuse to pay full price for it

I definitely won't be purchasing Madden full price this year either. Especially with how many thousands of codes they have been giving out on social media. They don't even care about retail price anymore, as they know the bulk of their money comes from Ultimate team. They are practically just handing the game out for free.

Wrong clearance thread, my bad.
