Max Payne 1+2 is their peak for me, I can see the throughline.

I agree with this. Those are their only games where they put everything together. Alan Wake had underwhelming gameplay, Quantum Break was a mess, Control has a boring protagonist.

She hears voices and there is a thing in her that talks to her. How is that boring? Lol

Really surprised Control/Borderlands 3 arent $20 or even $25 this BF. Easy pass. I wonder why more recent games didnt drop as much this year? They even still want $30 for greedfall!!! Crazy.

They know it's going to do fine without a price drop just like the console. It's only been 3 weeks and it has sold out and been restocked multiple times at my store.


Kinda saw it going the way of the Labo where it just sits on the shelf even at half off, but I guess this one was a hit for them. Might have to try it out.

Control is 25 at Target this year my dude. But I agree for the most part. I was hoping both of those would have been 20

I’m still waiting for other ads to drop, but does anyone know if the Jedi fallen order will have some sort of price change? I didn’t notice. Figure I ask


Its going to be $50-51 at Walmart (the deluxe will be $60) in store on release. That's probably the best "discount" it's going to get since it's new. It could possibly be added to Cyber Monday deals but it probably wouldn't be more than $10 off which is the Walmart price at release.

Must've missed it. Still an easy pass at $25 but thanks for letting me know. Also wish it wouldve gone to $20. Wouldve been a probably-buy.

Also disappointed that as of yet (doubt it's going to get any better) there isn't a single good switch deal. Was hoping to get one for deadly premonition next year but it looks like I might just have to wait for it to get ported to consoles.

Polygon is reporting that Nintendo's Black Friday Switch bundle that includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe are the old model Switches and not the new model Switches in an attempt to unload the old model Switches on an unsuspecting public.  Don't be fooled.

I don't even blame stores for doing so. The average person won't even know there is a different or care. As long as the product works for them.

That makes perfect business sense. Why are people surprised?

Started at 3:20 eastern time but there are no videogame deals at all. Disappointing but I kind of expected this.

Yeah, I gave up waiting on them since they can't start on time and surprise! I missed nothing. . .

Because Sony is giving 3 top tier games as opposed to the one last year and Nintendo can't even throw in free Nintendo Online and/or another code.

 

Really easy to put a sticker on the box and another code inside

The people who only go into stores during the holidays to buy stuff like this aren't even going to be aware of the difference...

Has anyone seen any deals on Microsoft Office Home for Windows 10?  I am looking for the permanent Home version as opposed to the subscription based 365 version.

They're selling well. No need to give free stuff to increase sales.

I could give a shit less about the new vs old model - just show some tact.

 

First they stopped doing monthly titles for Nintendo Online, and now they are too lazy to encourage they few that are....

Vote with your wallet. If you don't like them don't buy their stuff. They're a company. Their sole job is to make money, which they are making a shit ton right now. They owe you nothing. The faster consumers get that the faster they can use their purchasing power to actually get the companies to change.

Well it's pathetic because they clearly dont care about their customer base, they only care about money *InB4 "Well no shit duhhh!?!?!"* why would you want to support that?

Charging $300 with absolutely nothing substantial included for an OG model of a primarily handheld gaming device almost 3 years after release is absurd.

EDIT: Its also crazy to think that there are some suckers out there that have spent $1000 on nintendo products over the last three years (switch console, games that never go on sale) when they could've turned that $1000 into an actual console and 30+ games instead of basically a handheld system and 10 games.

Their customer base buys all the crap they put out repeatedly so clearly they are doing something right.

You just mad cause you can't get a deal. Chill.

Other than BOTW I dont think Nintendo has put out a higher quality exclusive or even port for that matter than anything released on console. I'd argue most of the suckers are buying it because it says nintendo on the case.

Perfect example is Witcher 3. One of the best games ever? Absolutely. However, people are buying a 4+ year old game for $50!! because it says Nintendo on the front when they can get it for under $15 and have it run better AND look better on consoles. There is literally no other explanation for that.

You are right. Nintendo fans buy their overpriced shit all the time. They just do it's what Nintendo fans do.

Judging from the anger in your post, those "suckers" are probably happier with their 10 games on a handheld than you are with your 30+ games on an "actual console."

 

They can also recoup most of the money they spent because Nintendo games retain their value, while those 30+ games on "actual consoles" are barely worth the disc they're printed on on the used market 6 months after release.

Maybe, but I can't play the PS4 version of the Witcher on a plane. To each their own
