#14391857 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

Posted by Kaiser499 on 19 April 2021 - 09:07 PM

If the description says "repackaged" anywhere, don't expect the original box.  And even then, there's still a decent chance of getting something that doesn't match the description at all.  Such is AWD life.


For instance, this wired controller is pretty good for $11 after promo.  But I had to do three orders to get one that wasn't heavily used.  People do pretty shady stuff with controllers.


I focus more on pc components from AWD and get better results there than with stuff in the v.game category.  Earlier today grabbed a 3800XT for $226.


It didn't say repackaged on it, just Like New.


Anyway, I'm trying to pair it to my PS5 now and either I'm dumb and it's different than all the other consoles I've got a 2nd controller with or I can't get it to pair. I've tried disconnecting the controller that came with the system, restarting the console and having the new controller plugged in with the cable my console came with and still nothing yet. Anyone have any ideas why I can't pair it?


Edit: I figured it out, you have to hold the create button and the playstation button on the controller for it to pop up under Bluetooth accessories, then you can register it as a 2nd controller.


Edit 2: The controller works as it should, no stick drift or anything. Everything feels as it should out of the box, I just wish it came with the outer box, just a pet peeve since I like to have everything complete.

I wonder if starting a petition and boycotting the PS5 will force Sony to fix this issue with both the PS3 and PS4 (and the PS5 if it also has the same issue). The PS5 is six months old and if demand dramatically decreases Sony would have to do something to appease its players.

The fact that there's still so much supply of this game gives me hope that Nintendo won't lean too hard on this Disney Vault-type BS in the future. It doesn't seem like the limited-release strategy caused the FOMO rush a lot of people expected. 


It will happen with the Zelda Collection coming up, possibly even the Metroid Prime HD Trilogy.

Walmart had the Series X up randomly out of nowhere, ordered one.

Target was a bust for me, if they ever came in stock.  I see it on the front of CAG, but I was checking then and saw no change for my local Target.  I'm wondering if Amazon's stock might have lasted longer because of the time it released.  3:30 AM EST is off-hours for almost every time zone in the US.


People are saying it was a glitch and no one actually got to buy anything from Target.

I know this is the Vita thread but, does anyone know a good place to buy replacement PSP Batteries? If so which would you recommend?

Posted by Kaiser499 on 09 February 2021 - 01:41 AM

I'm debating on whether or not to sell my Star Wars PS4 Pro and buy a PS5 since it's BC with PS4 games. The thing is just so darn big. Plus, I'm not sure how much I will get for my Pro. If I only get like $300 for it, it would be around $250 to upgrade and I don't think it's worth it right now. I'd also have to constantly check to see when it goes in stock like a madman and hope my order goes through. Hmmmmm.


It's worth it for the 60fps, if you don't care about that then don't upgrade and wait.

I prefer my collection to be NTSC as well unless a game I want only came out in another region. Examples would be Aggelos, Alienation, Matterfall, etc.

#14375375 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

Posted by Kaiser499 on 03 February 2021 - 12:55 AM


Obviously this thread doesn't agree with you. If you want to discuss their releases, go for it. If you want to share their tweets about upcoming stuff, have at it. Nobody's stopping you. But that's not what you're doing; you're relentlessly arguing an uphill battle for whatever reason. Maybe you're just obsessed with LRG. Maybe you're just upset at us. Maybe you just like arguing. I don't know anymore, but I do know engaging with you is a waste of my time.


Pretty sure bojay1997 works for LRG, they're always defending them.

I'm glad they recognize their problems, but I'll believe progress when I see it. Realistically, they are the better part of a year behind on pre-orders and their current release schedule only compounds that.


I wouldn't hold my breath, not when they're buying expensive game consoles for themselves instead of putting that money towards hiring more people to ship things out faster.
