No, by getting a good deal you've put yourself in a corner that you just can't get out of. You should have paid more to justify the purchase. Spending $27.49 for what originally cost $99.99 is like losing money. Just give up.

This is why I always pay full price.  No ragrets.

I'm jealous. Playstation gets another Humble Bundle. Xbox needs one damn it!

I am interested, but would be a lot more interested if there were more current gen games.  Also, I actually own a lot of those.  Definitely glad to see it, though, since that means we'll hopefully see more in the future.  Would love to see Xbox stuff, too.

Picked up Halo Wars 2 for $9 with my $5 credit. Doubt I'll ever play it but couldn't pass it up for that cheap.

As a single, middle aged man, I make the same decision whenever tampons go on a really good sale.

Well my plans to go 4K may be on hold now.  Driving home last night and my relatively new (3 years) car's oil pressure light flicks on.  Pull the car into a lot and oil is basically flowing out.  Had it towed to the dealership since it is still under warranty but if it is something not covered I may be looking at a big bill. Fuck cars.

I disconnected the wire to my oil pressure light for my car so this can never happen to me.

JC3 is a solid game despite all the naysayers that talk about poor quality on consoles.  Definitely the kind of game PS Plus or GWG members have been asking for.  AAA, high profile, etc.

What about someone that is unsure if they like the series?

If I'm just trying the game out I wonder if base game will suffice.

I guess the question should be, what does DLC really add?

There is a good amount of content in the base game or other versions of the game.  This stuff adds content that you won't appreciate unless you play it a lot.  The question is whether you can find those versions for much less than $20.  If you are wanting to try the game and like this type of game, this is probably a good way to do it.

 

FYI, another version of the game as free for PS Plus several months ago in case some of you may have forgotten you have this in your backlog.

Somewhat off-topic. But what do you guys think of the HP laptop that is the deal of the day? My wife's been on me for a new laptop ( not for gaming just more day-to-day traditional uses)?
http://www.bestbuy.c...cat248000050016

It's definitely a solid deal, but I don't think it's anything too exciting for a laptop with these specs.  I think similar deals like this pop up fairly regularly.

My order got screwed up too, but not in a good way.  I ordered Lisa Loeb Evo Rally but got some other rally game.  Very disappointed.

If Sony wasn't a runaway market leader right now, you might see some sort of "backwards compatible solution" from them.  I'm not saying it would be what anyone thinks of as ideal, but the reason there is no BC on PS4 is because Sony doesn't feel the need to.  Why couldn't you put in your PS3 disc and play that title using PSNow?  Or why couldn't Sony match up your digital purchase history with the PSNow library and give you those titles as free unlimited rentals?  I'm not saying a lot of people want to do that, but that seems like something Sony could offer if they felt like they needed to complete.

Trying to decide between two very different games with the current sale.  Trials Fusion with DLC or Steins;Gate 0?  What do you guys think?

Trials Fusion is nice, but it's just another Trials game if you have any experience with them from Xbox.  They're definitely fun.  I'd actually say it may not be quite as good as the earlier once - almost like it was too big budget and too polished.  There's plenty of content included, though, so you'll get your money's worth.

A Way Out is the new game from the director of Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons:

 

 

 

It's online or local co-op only.

So if this works out like Brothers, does this mean that one of the co-op players will just be sitting there watching the other play for the last third of the game for "emotional" story-telling effect?

Most people want cheap consoles.  It is going to be a hard sell at $400 even when a XBox One S or PS4 Slim will be $250 or less for the holidays.  Sure some people will pay $400-$500 to have the most powerful console around that can do 4K.  Most people though don't care.  I can't see MS taking a huge bath on these and putting them out cheap enough that the average consumer is going to say ok I wasn't interested in a XBox One at launch for $500. People are price sensitive.  I would imagine most parents will be like,  Sorry junior pick between the XBox One S or the PS4 slim.  You don't even have a 4K set in your bedroom you don't need a Scorpio for $150+ more.

 

I honestly believe much of it is bragging rights.  And maybe in 2 years when they can redesign and shrink the price and bump up the specs to leap frog whatever Sony might do between then and now it will sell like well to the masses.

 

When I could get a XBox One without Kinect with some games for $299.99 I was interested.  

 

Guess it will be interesting to see what MS does pricewise and how it sells.  I think either way it is a good step forward for them.

 

I just don't see this (unless it is like $299) making up much ground.  It is a high end product for those willing to pay.   Those who went out and bought large 4K HDR sets and want the best console to go with it.   That isn't the majority of console buyers.  

I think some people might be overlooking a major point of the PS4 Pro and the Scorpio.  These aren't really supposed to be next gen consoles.  They are really just enhancements for the higher end crowd that also serve a marketing purpose for the standard consoles.  It's the same reason car dealerships have Corvettes in the showrooms.  People like to go to the Chevy dealership and see the Corvette, maybe sit in it for awhile but eventually get that moderately priced sedan.  Having a high-end console makes the standard consoles look more affordable.  It also promotes brand loyalty and gives die-hard fans and whales something to spend money on to feel like they're getting the best.  Companies have been doing it for years.

 

Both Sony and Microsoft may not really care how many Pros or Scorpios they sell as long as they are making a decent profit since it provides other benefits to their overall branding.

TPS isn't very good.  I have 100% on BL2 on PS3, PS4 and XBox One.  Pretty close on 360 but never got all the achievements.  Lost my game save so will never go back to it on 360 via BC.  I think I have the plat on TPS on both PS3 and PS4 but never finished the DLC.  Never even bothered to install it on XBox One.  Maybe some day I will finish the DLC.  

 

To be honest I a bit worried they will screw up BL3 pretty good.  I wanted to like Battleborn the beta completely turned me off.  Picked it up for like $5 or something cheap.  Installed it but never got around to actually playing it.

I think the real problem for me on TPS was that I played so much of BL2 (which is one of my top 10 games of all time) that by the time I got around to TPS, I was kind of burnt out on the formula for awhile.  TPS is definitely not as good, but it's not bad by any means.

I just got off the phone with a local GS store. They weren't aware of stores getting this console, so it may be an online only item with them.

Gamestop employees never know anything until a few days later in my experience.
