My Amazon pre-order of Battle Chasers (PS4) still doesn't have an estimated delivery date. Is the physical edition being delayed? I noticed BB and GS have different release dates for it now (10/4 at BB, 10/10 at GS)

I was given an updated delivery estimate of 10/5 yesterday, and while I still haven't had a shipping notification, I did notice the money has been debited from my card today. I ordered 1/27 if that matters to you.

If your that concerned about grammer, than I suggest you stop looking at the internet.  :- :D/

"You're," not "your."

And "grammar", not "grammer", but I suggest that both mistakes were more in line with the point. :)

Haven't received my copies yet, but per the description...."digital code to unlock the original soundtrack background music option in-game."

I used my code last night. The game gave me music three options, in the following order: "Original" "Reorchestrated" or "OST". No idea the difference between "Original" and "OST".

Mine was until July 9th. Just got an email from PayPal today saying my refund went through. 

Nice. Looking forward to tomorrow, then. Thanks!

Nobody knows...but why would you want them on PS4 anyway if you have both?  With Switch they can be taken on the go as well, and it's not as if any run better on PS4.

 

Also, carts are just an inherently superior medium for those who buy physical.

^^This post is weird.

 

The Switch can be taken on the go, but not everyone has the want or need to do so with it (my Switch has stayed in the dock since I bought it).

 

The PS4/Xbox One are a lot more powerful than the Switch. (Both have more RAM and more processing power. That doesn't make them equal or inferior to newer Switch, but the contrary.) I think you're the first person I've read that's even tried to contest that. With more power in the other two systems, it's almost a certain games will run better on them (frame rate or higher resolution) compared to a Switch version. (Please look up comparisons of Snake Pass on all three systems, if you have your doubts, to see that effects had to be removed and the resolution dropped just to get a stable frame rate on the Switch version.)

 

Also, while carts are a very good medium for durability, blu-ray discs aren't anything to scoff at. They are built to be far more scratch resistant than CDs/DVDs in the past. And these days, the PS4/XBox One install the entire game to the HDD, so the speed of the disc drive isn't even a factor in slowing down the system for streaming data anymore. (And leads to a lot less wear and usage of the disc after the initial install and minor reads of the disc each time you play the game to verify its existance.)

On Kickstarter the developer said physical for Dreamfall Chapters was Europe only. (Those RP ESRB logos on the cases are really strange to me, then.)

 

I pre-ordered an import through Zavvi. ~$30 shipped.

Another pretty nice collector's edition for a decent price. Probably will be pretty limited.

 

Little Nightmares: Six Edition (XB1/PS4) $34.99 ($27.99 Prime)

 

Hey, thanks for the heads up!

Anyone know if this is gamestop exclusive, or if it's going to go to other retailers?




#13172183 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVI

FYI; this is $31.99 for a new copy for Prime members:

:ps4: Life is Strange Limited Edition (VG) $33.96

There's going to be two more popping up really soon that I sent back.

 

One had the jewel case inlay for the OST shredded by a machine (and a great outer box), the second had a messed up outer box (corners were smashed during shipping). Those two passed each other in the night, because I'm kicking myself for not trading the outer box on them. Third copy arrived Saturday, with slight crumpling to the outer box (envelope again). Amazon told me they can't exchange more than twice, apparently, so offered me an additional 5% discount. I told them, "nevermind, thanks any way", and they turned around and offered me an additional 20% the game. So I bought a new copy with slight damage to the box for 60% the original price. :O

 

Lesson: always call Amazon, don't do automated returns online. I've always had a good experience talking to Amazon, and they just put a note on my account to stop shipping products to me in envelopes, only in boxes. :D

:ps4: Destiny Limited Edition (A) $27.50 (G) $29.33 (VG) $31.16 
 
:ps4: Bound by Flame (LN) $17.81
 
 
:vita: Ragnarok Odyssey Mercenary Edition (A) $15.45 (G) $16.48
 
 

 

So, I ordered Destiny LE (VG) and it arrived today. Other than a small (very small) nick on the box (and some stickers placed on there by amazon—why oh why?), that thing was in immaculate condition. Everything was in the box. And then I checked the codes...all of them worked, including the Expansion Pass, worth $35 alone! Thanks for pointing me to these deals! :D
