Guess I'll be focusing on Tales of Berseria and maybe some Yakuza 0 today. For some reason my Resident Evil 7 order was delayed.... o_0

I just started Extella, I was going to work on my backlog but really missed Fate after UBW ended. Held off on Yakuza or else my backlog will never see the light of day.

Ys: Memories of Celceta is on sale for $12 on PSN. According psprices.com this is the lowest it has been. It was steady at $30 before dropping to $20 in Jan 2015. 

 

This game sure took its sweet time to drop in price. Unfortunately I could never find a complete copy in GS.

In Topic: Best Buy: Visa Checkout $25 off $100 (expires 1/21)

Again, making 3% on a credit card transaction (less their costs in processing, rewards and other expenses) and interest of varying rates won't cover 25% discounts on millions of dollars in purchases.  The other big difference here is that previously the offer ended when a certain number of transactions had been processed.  This one has been open for a week and the level of abuse is literally staggering.

I'm not a financial analyst, but from my mathematical intuition I highly doubt the "abuse" can even cause a "loss" that they would bother to put data engineers to investigate. I also would imagine this whole thing falls under the budget of "marketing promotions", which they know they need to bleed money to compete with the many other more popular alternatives.

 

They are Visa, couple million is their pocket change.
