#14112685 Official Playstation VR Deals and Discussion Thread

Posted by yuyak on 31 December 2018 - 08:15 PM

 

I made a list of all the titles I've played on PSVR as well as their respective ratings, from 1-5 stars (asterisks).
 
 

Cool, thanks!  May I recommend SuperHyperCube? It's a pretty simplistic puzzle game but I really enjoyed it and I've found it to be a good "intro to VR" for friends/family who visit with no risk of motion-sickness. 




#14103382 PSN Weekly Deals - 7/9: PS Retro Sale! $4 Arcade Archive games,...

Posted by yuyak on 14 December 2018 - 12:00 AM

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but on Black Friday weekend amazon was selling the digital version of Astro bot for $20. Hope the next round of sales is in your favor.

Thanks, yeah I found about that one just after it expired :( Hopefully it happens again before the GameStop return period ends (also Jan 15th). Physical copy is OK, but with PSVR titles, I prefer digital.

Picked up SotC and DQ 11 for PS4. My GCU expires tomorrow, so barely made it. Sad GCU is expiring, but I was able to stack the "25% off one game" coupon for GCU expiration, making DQ11 $18.

Sorry if this has been asked/answered before, but has anyone found a BF deal on the One X/Shadow of Tomb Raider bundle?

Microsoft store says "Save up to $100 on all xbox one consoles and bundles".... whatever that means. Could be $100 off, could be $0.01 off. Definitely not $101 off though. Nov 18-26.

Best Buy looks like the place to shop, will probably pick up U:LL for $10 for my son, he played the first 4 this summer, and maybe Astro Bot Rescue Mission for $20 b/c in February I bought a $200 headset I never use. 

Is Astro Bot $20 at BB too? Or are you talking about the Gamestop deal? I'm interested too but I only saw GameStop's listing. I prefer digital, but I may still pick it up, and plan on returning it if PS Store has it on sale for the same price (unlikely, but I can hope).

Battlefront 2 = $24 after GCU? That's kinda tempting. I guess that's the same price as the digital version (with xblg or ps+) right now.

Go for Arizona Sunshine since it's strictly a digital title. The disc version of Doom VFR has already gone as low as $14.99 before.

Okay, guys. I need an opinion on the following titles:

 
[redacted]

 

Let me know if you need an opinion on any of those (I haven't played them all yet).

Superhot is a must have in my opinion. I haven't played the non-VR version so I can't comment on whether the bundle is worth the extra over the VR version. 
 

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is pretty fun. It's a local multiplayer coop (I don't see how you can play it alone, and I don't know if online multiplayer is an option). My wife and I play it, alternating headsets. I think it'd be good as a party game too.

Thanks for the recommendations, I like the stand and headphones.  I have a pair of Bluetooth sony earbuds I was planning on using and laso have the Sony PS Gold headset, are those any good?  

From what I read, bluetooth headphones are NOT recommended. The VR system has a "3D" audio features that adjust the audio to account for head movement. This can only be achieved with a wired connection to the PSVR headset, but not if it's connected via bluetooth to the PS4. (I'm just relaying what I read, so not sure if it's 100% accurate) 




#13886125 Dell: PSVR Skyrim bundle for $335 shipped (or less)

Posted by yuyak on 22 November 2017 - 06:34 PM

Dell has the Skyrim bundle for $335 + free shipping.

 

On top of that, ebates has 10% cashback ($33.5), and if you sign up for Dell Advantage (free), they'll you'll also get 3% ($10) future Dell credit.  I also happened to have the Amex offer for $50 statement credit, so all told, I got it for:
$335 + $29 (CA tax) = $364 (-$33.5 ebates CB - $50 Amex statement credit) = $280... and a future $10 Dell credit.

#13573229 Best Buy Ad 12/25-12/31: 50% Trade-In Bonus on XB1/PS4 games

Posted by yuyak on 21 December 2016 - 08:52 AM

Damn.. so I better lock in before 12/25 because all the TIVs will plummet. Sucks that you only have 2 weeks to send it out. Not that that's not a long time, but I won't be able to send it out within 2 weeks. :/

Be careful. Amazon trade in says you have to ship the item by a certain date. On the other hand, Best Buy trade in says that they have to RECEIVE the item within 2 weeks. I locked in a trade on the day before Thanksgivings (wed), and with all the holiday stuff, I didn't get around to dropping it off at the UPS store until the following Thursday. Because the UPS shipping they pre-pay for is slow, it didn't arrive until the following Friday (2 days after the 2 week limit). They sent me an email saying I was getting a reduced amount.

 

With not much to lose, I sent them a complaint email (mostly having to do with the fact that shipping was delayed due to Thanksgivings, and that they didn't even "assess" the games i sent in until a week after they received it). Fortunately, they were willing to adjust it to the original "lock" price, but only because I complained.

My concern is, what does the one of the first people in line mean? 3? 5?

In the past, they reveal the deal-of-the-day one day before the offer, although they were usually leaked online well in advance. My guess is they gave up on trying to keep it a secret, but will reveal details for each offer the day before... unless it gets leaked :)

I miss the "first few people in line get Groove 1yr for $30" days

Me too. I think I got 3yrs worth (wife + I think in-laws visiting) when they did that. My subscription from then is just about to expire so I *might* pick it up this time around. I have a bunch of MS Store giftcards that I can just recycle, so it'd basically be $50.

Wow no Groove music pass this year??

if I recall, those weren't during BF, but during their "countdown to Christmas" sale (one deal per day for 12days in December... Or something like that)
