#14005217 Official Playstation VR Deals and Discussion Thread

Posted by Sk on 05 June 2018 - 02:16 PM

If they remade RE1 and 2 in VR holy shit I would be so sold on those!


Considering RE7 had a vr mode, I’m sure RE2 will as well. Maybe not on launch, but down the line as dlc. I would love to explore the world of RE2 and RE1 in VR. Anything after re4 hasn’t been my cup of tea.

:shock:

Where is the best place to find this?


ASKING FOR A FRIEND

Hahaha sure. You have to download files and upload to an sd then DL a vr movie player on psn to watch. I don’t recommend dling porn illegally. If they get your IP, they’ll publicly shame you in a local newspaper and then sue you. It happened to my old boss...twice.

Do you think any titles /bundles are worth it now? Because I bought it at launch and I saw the potential but I also saw the potential in Sony 3DTV games.....with move as well lol

But doom looks like the best affordable bundle but do you think the roster is worth it now, and if either yes or no, do you think we’ll see all games with VR capability by next year or will they be this years clearance like the ps 3DTV bundles??

Is PS VR a constant , and or inevitable add on to embrace ? Just wanna know weather to get it now or wait

(Or get a switch and really wait till more bundles)

Long story short , I jumped on the 3D tv bandwagon too. And imo the psvr is not at all worth it...yet. The catalog is very limited and you can tell graphically it’s a first gen device. The next gen vr sets will most def be worth it if content exists. I’d personally get the switch for now. I’m also an adult who lives life like a spoiled kid, so buying a psvr was just another toy for me.

Honestly, vr has a few hours of wow factor. I think it ruines some gaming experience but certainly enhances others. Basically it’s a mixed bag atm.

No, don't waste your time with online chat, they can't do anything. I called the number this morning and I had no problem (I thought I would have to fight it).

In response to the critics, I feel like it's bad business to advertise your "lowest" price one week and then discount it even further the next (whether it's in error or not). Anyway, it's their own 30-day policy I'm taking advantage of, and it should be standard policy if it's within the return date on the receipt. It saves me the trouble of having to return it and repurchase it for the discounted price (which I was already considering doing in response to the Target sale). I don't usually end up on the "winning" end of a good deal, and this was my biggest purchase all year, so allow me my brief respite.


If it makes you feel better I paid the full $350. No regrets. I don’t over think 50-60 bucks. Honestly next yr I could see $150 and $250 bundles. Sony is trying to dominate VR and no one can compete on price.

Guys maybe instead of calling Dell just have your credit card do a purchase price adjustment. My Citi and discover do this. Maybe Amex as well.

Title says it all...ships 12/31. Skyrim bundle was also at 279 but sold out. Black Friday was not at all a good time to get PSVR.

#13713937 Fry's Anniversary Sale 5/7-13

Posted by Sk on 12 May 2017 - 07:12 PM

Their ex-head of purchasing embezzled tens of millions if not a hundred million plus dollars by causing them to substantially overpay for goods from various vendors, who would then give the employee kickbacks. IIRC, he also set up dummy corporations to act as middle men more or less doing the same. Literally ever since that time, their once amazing deals were reigned in, undoubtedly to make up the enormous losses.

http://www.seattleti...ing-65-million/

Here's a good summary:

https://donwycoff.wo...rchasing-fraud/


Good read for sure but a company generating 2+ billion in revenue would rebound from a 40-60 million dollar write off like that by now. They prob had to raise capital or borrow and needed larger profit margins to grow or stay in business. Places like frys and Best Buy are slowly going extinct. I still notice good savings on big ticket items, but not so much on things that get you in the door like video games, movies, and cheap gadgets.

Posted by Sk on 10 May 2017 - 10:44 PM

is this the same as their "customer appreciation" sale .

I dunno what happen to frys they used to be the place that had the best deals and now its pure dog crap.


I notice if you're shopping for the truely high end or flagship products like a $3000 tv or a 2500 av receiver or speaker set then their still a great place to get those items at 40-60% off. The receiver I bought had a $2500 MSRP (still does to this day) and I paid $990 with tax. Their best deals always say name brand product...but must see the price and model in store.


#13674957 Nintendo Switch Console Stock Thread - Mario Odyssey bundle announced

Got mine yesterday at a Walmart near me that popped up on Brickseek. I wasn't actively looking until the second wave, since I figured the first wave would be the most prone to defects. I skipped the Wii U after being disappointed with the Wii, so I'm hoping Nintendo rereleases a bunch of stuff from the prior generation. Seems like quite a few more are popping up now, so I'm sure everyone looking will get one soon.


Having owned a wii and bought a Wii U for my nephew I can say I like the switches concept better than both. It's what made both systems great in one. No complaints here and it's been a glorified $500 (w/accessories) Zelda device. That being said I can't wait till it gets netflix and YouTube. I'll stop using any other streaming devices.

Yeah, the only systems I've ever bought at launch where "N" and Sega systems, and I never had any problems with any back in the day. I will say that the "N" of old no longer exist, at least to me, and the laundry list of NS problems pretty much backs up my own belief on the subject. But I do agree in these current times, it seems best to wait across the board, as even "N" now seems to have production issues as much as anyone else does.

Really? I think the N of old is as strong as ever (let's forget about Wii U, I think they know they screwed up). Nintendo has been the only videogame brand that's stayed true to themselves year after year. They're also the only ones willing to take a risk. As a result, I'm wiling to support them. Their existence is good for gamers, haters will always hate but it's the truth. They make the best universally liked games, people young to old can play them easily and be challenged. Also, I've experienced no issues with my switch. I think it's a lot of hype and people talking because it's the newest thing. I will say it scratches like a mofo from regular use. I already have dock scratches on the back plate (but not on the screen).

 

Personally I only think they lost their way during the N64 and Wii U areas of gaming. I skipped out on both those consoles for good reason. I can't deny the N64 had a lot of innovation, it wasn't my cup of tea...sony had the games I wanted to play. The Wii U was just a mess, At least with the switch the message is clear, you're getting a handheld that can bridge into being a console. It's good at being both, even if the tech isn't crazy powerful as a dedicated console. .

Over 40 stores have dropped off since this morning.

You sir are an angel. I looked at your list this morning and my local GS wasn't on there. I just checked and it was. I called they had stock and then they told me I picked up the last one. Must have sold out in a few mins.

 

Thanks a million, I bought it and Zelda...I'm getting nothing done this week. :)

Those are in store pre orders that haven't been picked up.


That's what an instore rep just said on the phone. I guess they handle preorders like layaway. They're all grey units. No neons are avail so I thought it was an inventory restock.

Hope they start making the Pros like this. Not even really tempting since it's just a redesigned original 

Yup agreed...I'd love to get rid of my regular PS4 and get a white pro model. I got two PS4s at the moment...a 20th anniversary model (unopened) and my launch PS4. I really see no other reason to upgrade other than I want it to match my white XBONE. I think consoles look killer in white.
