#14394107 Best Buy deals

Posted by Silver Phoenix on 30 April 2021 - 04:35 AM

I should warn you that Sonic Mania Plus is only Sonic Mania. I dealt with this months ago after ordering it and returning it and ordering it again. I don't know why they list it as Plus but they always send Sonic Mania. The biggest issue with this is that individual stores have a different catalogue listing of their games than online so lucking out and finding a copy in-store would be the only way to get it at that price.


It was extremely frustrating because they use the same SKU # for Sonic Mania/Sonic Mania Plus and Sonic Mania isn't even listed on their website. They still never corrected it.

Ugh yeah I was hoping to pick up a ps4 this year as a backup unit for down the road given that sony systems tend to dry up pretty quick and once they do the used prices jump fast. 

I don't like Jim Ryan as CEO. He's probably the reason a lot of the known people from the PS4 era left, and his decisions could cause a lot of negative effects in the years to come. With the pandemic still present they're going to have to be smart with future decisions and quality control with potential manufacturing difficulties moving forward.


He's likely the reason PS4 stock has become so scarce if he just wants complete focus on the PS5 manufacturing. Understandable with shortages, but taking PS4's off the line is a potential profit loss. Backwards compatibility or not PS5 is still a more expensive system with limited supply.

Sorting issue should be fixed, feel free to list pricing errors and I'll verify/update when I can. 


For anyone curious, the main page should stay sorted by System then title name because it makes updating the system specific sheets a simple copy/paste.

Just from a quick glance:


Darksiders Genesis PlayStation 4 is missing prices


Daymare:1988 PlayStation 4 is missing prices


Heroland PlayStation 4 is missing prices


Rock of Ages 3: Make & Break PlayStation 4 is missing prices


Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince PlayStation 4 is missing prices


Gal Metal: World Tour Edition Switch is missing prices


Roman Rumble in Las Vegum Switch is missing prices


Please don't edit the page if you're going to make a mess and more work for others like puh_fifer please.

#14336658 Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water - Wii U [Digital Code] $33.99

Posted by Silver Phoenix on 22 October 2020 - 06:36 AM

The Switch is what the Wii U was meant to be. Nintendo tried to innovate while half-assing it like they always do. I didn't like how anti-consumer they were with the Wii U basically saying seeya sucker to the people who bought one with little to no support over time. I am anticipating a PS4 Pro or One X as their next system capability.


Knowing Nintendo it would be the base model PS4 and Xbox One equivalent.

RE5 has co-op online. It's also drop-in/drop out so if someone leaves someone else can join you if they want by selecting to join based on whatever chapter you're on.


Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 is free on PSN and XBox Live right now for a limited time. Here is the link for the PS4 version.



#14266025 PS4 PRO 299 @amazon

Posted by Silver Phoenix on 22 February 2020 - 05:09 AM

The problem with the PS5 launch is the component shortages which basically get taken away from the system along with higher cost sourced components/architecture. I don't think the launch PS5 is going to be what they wanted to put out because of the problems acquiring what they wanted, and having to raise the price just to get what they can. They should have waited until December for release to see if those extra few months could have made a difference.


Even if Xbox Series X YZ123 launches earlier it's not the favored system and I'd rather Sony put out the best possible hardware from the start. Either way we're likely in for another mid-system upgrade if that's the case. They were going to include that mirrorless camera with the system but outside of VR enhancement I think it wouldn't serve a purpose for most people. Sony is better off leaving it out and saving it for future integration.


As for the Pro, $300 is the price is should be standard but they want the base PS4 at that price for as long as they can. If GameStop was doing the $50 bonus system trade-in credit I would be tempted because we don't have concrete specifics on PS5's backwards compatibility. I really prefer hardware BC over software but they say that costs more, and if the PS5 enhances games as well if not better than the Pro there is no reason to get the Pro. Of course the Pro only plays PS4 games though.


Sony doesn't want to reveal too much too soon because then they're going to be stuck with what they say, and if it doesn't end up being the end case that's how quickly customers will flip on them.

I’m not sure Sony has the leverage to do that, given the value Microsoft has been providing with its Games Pass and other consumer friendly choices. Combine that with a new console reset, and if Sony isn’t careful, they could see lots of people jumping ship as far as which next gen console gets first priority for purchase. It would also be richly ironic if that happened, because Sony would only have themselves to blame for not offering more to keep players in their ecosystem. Having fewer games on offer and/or fewer deeper sales for PS+ members could come back to bite them in that way, especially as the PS+ membership service has been so lucrative to the company as a whole. When the company was struggling, it was the PlayStation division that helped keep them afloat. In that sense, Sony should be careful they don’t kill their goose that lays golden eggs, but I guess we’ll see what happens in the next year or so (whether we see PS3 launch Sony or PS4 launch Sony).

Executives are not consumer focused, they're focused on profits to please their shareholders. Complacency is a problem with companies who ride a plateau until they hit a wall and wonder what happened when the profits start to drop. We'll see if Sony has some surprises in store aside from just a console because they have done nothing to improve features or function for a paid service.

My friends long time no see !!!!!! Hope everyone’s holiday has been great !

As for gaming the only deals that have interested me were the 199 switch and spidey at Best Buy but Best Buy sold out instantly on thanksgiving day :(

This is why you should order things online, especially when they offer free shipping. The game was available from Wednesday through Friday if not earlier at $15. It's possible it may be that price again before Christmas.

^ This isn't CAGBlogs and too much Potassium is bad for your Heart and Kidneys. That's all I'm going to say on that. 


I just got back from Walmart and it was a sad sight. They had all of the Black Friday "deals" at the front of the store for games and movies. Even if the same exact game or movie was in Electronics and someone was trying to buy it they would not price match the Black Friday price. I felt bad for the people who were trying to find what they were looking for and getting shot down by the miserable Tuesday of a manager. 


I stupidly wasted the gas trying to find Avengers Endgame for the $7.96 which were all gone. The OCD in me wouldn't have been happy with the promo copy which everything for Black Friday was part of for the most part. Not many employees around as usual either. I noticed there weren't much sale price changes on anything. Anything Black Friday was mostly shoved into a cardboard bin or pallet stack. This was around 11:30 pm so the early barrage of people were gone.


I don't think this year was much of a blowout for anyone unless you got lucky with price errors or a rare find. Crap Friday and Gray Thursday.

Jesus. It's absolute madness out there. People were literally vomiting and shitting themselves. It's like they forced down Thanksgiving dinner and immediately bolted out the door to spend money they don't even have.

That's awesome. I'd like to see it.

My ps4 ui lag sometimes and I heae either the hdd or external clicks plenty of times. I'll be damn if the hdd dies after black friday.

Rebuild your PS4 Database.


  1. Turn off your PS4 using the power button on the front of the device. (If it is already off even better.)
  2. Hold the power button down and wait for two beeps. This typically takes about seven seconds.
  3. Connect your PS4's DualShock 4 controller to the console using a compatible USB cable.
  4. From the Safe Mode menu, choose Option 5: Rebuild Database.
