#13731696 Horizon Zero Dawn $40/$32 GCU at Best Buy

Posted by MPoWeRM3 on 05 June 2017 - 06:52 PM

Hope so.  I just bought a bunch of games and missed this.  However I get a bunch of money due me this Friday (3 months of raise).  So easy to justify spending $32 on one more game for the pile of shame.

I've learned my lessen with my pile of shame. Unless I plan on playing the game right away before anything in that pile, I will wait til at least sub $20 regardless of the game. I rather have a pile of cheap games than expensive games. In this day and age, we have to deal with two piles, physical and digital.

80million? As of march 31 the 3ds was at 66 million. As of March 31 the PS4 was at 60 million. Stop making stuff up.

Calm down. Ok 60 mil. As a publisher, would you spend money developing big games for the PS4 or Switch? That's the point I'm getting at.

Agree.  Zelda is selling Switches cause of the low WiiU install base. This will not be a home console killer, or compete well with PS/Xbox.  My take, the Switch will be a 3DS replacement, and maybe they'll eventually sell it without the dock for a lower price.  The original 3DS came out in 2011, and the portable console market for AAA titles (3DS/Vita), is hungry for a new system.

Agree. Only when it hits the magic price of $199 (disposable income price for the masses) by either a hardware revision or ditching the dock will it attract casuals to use it as a portable system in place of 3DS. But, it is Nintendo we are talking about and hardware price drops are usually not in their books, regardless if they can or can not.

I only wish. Unfortunately, its sales trajectory is improbably high. Nintendo is only being encouraged to continue its stupid bullshit.


It's just the early adopters and better marketing this time vs Wii U. Once the dust settles, ppl will wake up and find that it, as a hybrid system doesn't do well on either the portable or home console sides. The biggest problem will again be 3rd party support further down the line. The Switch is not on the level of PS4/X1/PC so ports to it would significantly impact visuals and performance, so they would rather skip the Switch on these titles. Most 3rd paty publishers will not invest money to make big games specifically for the Switch. Why would they blow all that money for the 5 million Switch users where the same dollars spent would buy them potentially 80 million users on PS4 for example. Right now, all you see from 3rd paties are dinky games, games from decades ago, and ports of games that can be produced on last gen hardware. This trend will only continue til its death.

#13700644 GS: Get $150 toward Switch for New 3DS, WiiU trade in

Posted by MPoWeRM3 on 26 April 2017 - 08:19 PM

So it's basically trading a 3DS for a less portable 3DS.


 

So it's basically trading a 3DS for a less portable 3DS... with no games. ;)

Seeing how many times the Wii U dropped in price looks like you'll never buy one.


Possibly. For Nintendo, I started with NES, then SNES. Never bought the N64 & Gamecube (both had no games I want), then got both Wii and Wii U. So I'm not surprised I might need to sit out another couple gens of Nintendo systems. The problem with the Switch for me is it doesn't have any games I want, just like N64 and GC, and does not look like there's any for as far as I can see, exept maybe the new Mario game. I did own every portable Nintendo systems since the Gameboy Advance because they were are relatively cheap. So if they bring a version of the Switch without the dock to the market for $200 or less, I may consider it since that will be in my disposable income range, even if there will only be a handful of games that I like for the life of the system. I did that with the Wii U, paying $200 new for the 8GB model and use a 128GB USB flash drive that I had lying around to solve the storage constraints... then bought just 10 games total (the ones I care) throughout its life.

I don't know, we'll see. I'm not going to buy a system with no games I like for full price, or the current markup pricing due to limited supply. Like I said earlier, there's no rush until there are games I care for. By then, maybe they will sell a striped down version for $200. ;)

will only buy one when there's a undocked model with higher capacity battery for $200 or less. i just don't see this thing as a home console. There's also no games to play yet, for people already with a WiiU, so no rush.

I'm in for a digital copy of conan just because


There is/was a save bug that I encountered near the end of the game when I played this many years ago and it forced me to start all over. I sold the game right afterwards. There is a way to avoid this bug but I didn't know until it happened and did research. You better look into this before playing... you've been warned.

Holy shit!!!

 

Am I reading this right?
RE 4,5 6, Revelations 2, Remake and 0 for $20?!

Yet, the triple pack (4,5,6) is $29.75 in the same sale. Makes so much sense.

Yup.

Bought Horizon Zero Dawn, KH 2.8 (limited edition), and Berserk (which includes a $10 gc).

total came out to around 118 w/tax.


Waste of money? Absolutely.


very waste of money. they are single player games so no rush to play. work on some of the backlog instead and wait for these to be cheap enough to be in the backlog also. i know u have some, who doesn't these days. lol

Okay, new question: is Dell customer support amenable to applying gift cards to pre-orders that you've already made?

They will need to cancel and reorder.
