Final Fantasy 35th anniversary celebration is next month. We could see Final Fantasy Tactics Remaster or even Final Fantasy IX Remake.



We will get Final Fantasy Tactics and IX... NFTs.


#14507280 Playstation Deals, PS Plus games, and Discussion

Wow. That's...actually a deal.

First good price I've seen on a 2TB 4.0. I suppose it's only -$20 discounted when you buy the heatsink.

I'm still leaning towards a 1 TB for ~$90 though. At some point storage just costs too much. You guys been buying these (2 TB)? Are you satisfied?

Had 1TB SSD in my PS4 Pro and then later regretted it because it filled up fast and there are some large game installs (FFVII Remake and RDR were both around 100GB each I think). I upgraded to a 2TB and even though it's only 1.4TB full, it's just nice knowing I have some extra space left to install few more games.

I have that old 1TB SSD sitting around... along with a ton of other old SSDs and HDDs. You can only have so many external storage drives before you just end up with extra drives sitting around and resale value of storage is pretty weak.

With the PS5, I just said Fuck it and bought 2TB 980 Pro off the bat when it went on sale. I'm sure I'll upgrade to the PS5 Pro or whatever and can just move the drive since it's added storage/assuming it'll be plug and play. PS5 is early in it's life, I know it'll just end up getting full in a few years.

The deals are just so slow and tepid this year, it seems like filler banter is the name of the game until Friday or Monday.


While this true and I don't normally mind the banter, I hate coming into a thread after a while and seeing dozens of new posts thinking there's some amazing deal only to find it's OT talk and I have to skim through the OT posts to see if there was anything I actually missed.

Yeah, it was $20 on two different occasions within a month at Walmart about 6 to 9 months ago. Seemed like some weird .com-only flash sale in order to clear some inventory. I failed to pickup my order...

It should get cheap again at some point. Especially when the next sequel is coming out. They will drop it in order to get sales on the new title.


Shit.. I remember one instance where it was $20 for a short period so I figured it was a glitch... didn't realize it hit $20 again though.

if you have a moderate interest in imports you should be buying stuff straight from japan right now cause the exchange rate is too good

I got some FFVII Remake Play Arts/Static Arts preorders at Amazon JP and wish I could just prepay for them so I can lock in the rate now.

I think that was one of the longer runs for the one that shall not be named.

I heard if you post his name 3 times, he shows up with a new account.

Wish TMNT would come back in stock... 

 

Also wondering if we'll see more B2G1Fs this yr. I know we had quite a few last year but it seems like there's been a lot of early BF deals this year and also who knows with the economy. Also insane how much money I've spent with Target this year... and how little I've spent at BB.

I have the same problem. Tried multiple browsers on my laptop, same thing. The only way I was able to log in was with my phone's mobile browser.

Holy shit, thank you. I emailed Namco twice, both times they told me the same generic: it's you, not us.

I would just love to know what is going in with shipping of games that have reached the warehouse lately.  It used to be a few days after we would get notice to verify our address before a game would ship once it reached the warehouse stage of things.  Not it is taking a month or more.

He addressed this a few days ago- basically a bunch of stuff came in all at once and they're now just sitting on a bunch of shit that they have to ship out.

How the heck do they not auto write a penny off?  If you said sure charge me it would cost than more than a penny to put the charge through since CCs have a per transaction and percentage fee. 

Have you seen the exchange rate between the yen and USD?? Nintendo needs NOA to collect every single penny, no questions!!

Curious if making complete on disc GOTY copies for certain "AAA" titles that left the DLC as download is a possibility?   

 

For instance, Fallout 4 GOTY was just the base game with DLC vouchers.  Fallout fans are hardcore and would be all over that.  

 

Also games like Far Cry 5, The Outer Worlds, Deus Ex Mankind Divided, Dead Rising 4; Frank's Big Package, Friday the 13th Ultimate Slasher Edition. 

 

Even selling just the DLC on disc that is only available as a download would be big for some people here.  

Shit, this is something I'd be on board with.

Maybe they are getting better or certain areas are worse?  I just got a call that my copy of Paradigm Paradox is ready for tomorrow.  A totally niche otome game.  I probably was the only one that ordered that in the store.  When they called to let me know it would be ready tomorrow (the release date) I asked about Bayonetta Trinity Masquerade and she said they already got them and they are in the back ready for Friday,  

Not saying you're wrong but in what ways did they get better? I don't deal with GS much anymore because I just don't find deals there anymore or I simply keep missing deals... but my last few transactions with them haven't been great. Lots of gutted new games and online reward certs that simply don't due to some stupid reason or another.
