Wow. Week three of no deals. I'm now glad I have a massive backlog that I cannot finish in my lifetime. PSN deals are gone forever.

I thought the holiday sale was all right, and I've been following since 2009.  However, the last two weeks strike me as the worst ever.  I gave last week a pass considering it was in the wake of the holiday sales, but this week too?

I have been playing Tomb Raider since I bought it for like $6. It is amazing how similar it is to Uncharted. It basically took it and made it worse by adding a lot of those horrible no control moments(which is ironically the same reason uncharted started to turn to shit after 2). You know what I am talking about. Those awful *hold up* moments, etc.
 
This is the reason why the soulsborne games are so popular. They are just pure gameplay. You have 100% control over your character at all times. Even in the hub in bloodborne you could attack the doll and do whatever.


They make fun, but you speak wisdom. I agree. Quick time events are not gameplay.

I would guess they only do the discount on physical because there's a chance that people will sell back or trade-in the game and then they can sell it used to recoup some money. That's obviousky not possible with digital.

That sounds logical, and I bet you're right.  Makes sense for Best Buy, but does Amazon take many trade-ins?  Maybe they do these days.  I've always thought the trade-in/used market was a racket.

Isn't this just trying to match Gamers Club with Best Buy? Even Best Buy won't give an additional discount off of digital.

I don't need an additional discount; just the same discount would be fine.  Does BB discount on digital?  That's cool if so.  It's just that I already have Prime for other reasons.  I don't have GCU and don't plan on getting it.
