#14444878 Playstation Deals, PS Plus games, and Discussion

Pretty huge news:
https://www.bloomber...-xbox-game-pass

Not sure it's huge. Even if you don't buy them on sale, a year of PS+ and PS Now come out to $10 per month combined. This new service is unlikely to be cheaper than that - there's actually a decent chance it'll be more expensive. And the internal documents suggest that they'll keep the PS+ branding, so we can probably forget buying PS+ for $25-30 in the future from CDkeys and the like, just like how deals for a year of XBL Gold for $30-40 dried up completely. Microsoft doesn't even sell the year directly anymore. Will Sony drop the PS+ and PS Now 50% annual savings rate you get from them directly in place of a monthly $10 or $15 service? I wouldn't like that. That's before you even consider cloud streaming and the fact that PS Now games currently don't require PS+ to play online.

Maybe they could do that technically, but why would they? They never offered to do that, they'd have to do it for everyone who lost their saves, and even more people would pass on subscribing to PS+? I'm sure there are even people out there willing to pay money for their lost saves. If you lost data on a computer, you'd be looking at paying hundreds or even thousands to get someone to recover your data for you.

That's the plan. The $343 is cleared but I want to see the $51 drop off. Hell, I'm entirely likely to eat the $51 even if it inexplicably posts because I'm so far ahead already and I'm probably just going to flip the vanilla XSS for around cost and walk away since I already have a Series X. The XSS is for my kid's use and replacing a One X I'll be selling since the price is so inflated right now.

One of mine has been recalled and the other hasn't been updated today yet. GS should have just canceled the orders. Now they'll be eating chargebacks and return shipping fees.

and a $10 coupon code to boot hehehe…

Why are you saying "hehe"? "Rest assured you will be receiving the Xbox Series S Digital Edition Fortnite & Rocket League bundle along with the 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

Because this was our mistake, we will be providing the 3 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate absolutely free to you while also removing the incorrectly priced console from your order.

If you’d like to purchase a second Xbox Series S console, please feel free to visit us at GameStop.com where you will find these consoles readily available for purchase."

It sounds like they're shipping a Series S for normal price. I don't think most people actually want one.

You thought 13 Sentinels was overrated but not Nier Automata? I thought Nier was overrated because it has a top-tier waifu who has a lot of hentai for online. Time travel stories are always a loopy mess, and 13 Sentinels doesn't differ in that regard.

That's worse than DOA. At least DOA caters to people who are interested in waifus. Who's going to buy all that painted armor?

Does GameStop have a new warehouse? All my orders are coming from Reno, NV. Hard to believe that a store in Reno had all my items to fulfill for each order.

Yes, brand new and probably not even fully operational yet. https://news.gamesto...rk-new-facility

I could live with just having to buy GTAV (only goes on sale for $15 anyway) but a $60+ extra controller to boot? No thanks. This isn't a scalper deterrent, it's just cashing in on the demand of your most loyal customers.

Lmao. MS is even greedier than scalpers because they're literally a trillion-dollar company while scalpers aren't. I got a PS5 from the direct email invitation too, but I'm definitely not happy that MSRP can be considered a deal.

I’ll probably grab one then but I guess I need to get a 3 month today since my sub expires tomorrow. You can stack them right?

If your sub expires tomorrow, just let it expire and do the conversion trick: buy 3 years of XBL Gold, then 1 month of Game Pass Ultimate, and your entire subscription will be GPU.

The $5 signup bonus ended on 10/1. The 10k points replaced it as the new bonus.

Are you going to buy it? It's your only chance to get one non-bundled. A direct invitation wouldn't have counted for much pre-pandemic, but now it's like a golden ticket to the chocolate factory.

It works for renewals, I was up for renewal in December but the manager told me about the promo and how it would work for renewals.
I paid $9.99 and got my PUR extended to Dec 2022, the 10k points later that night and my receipt shows $9.99.
I didn’t check for any extra $5 coupons on the receipt, but it definitely worked for renewals. He said it was this week and possibly into next.

When did you renew? The promotion seemingly started just yesterday. The $5 receipt coupon ended on 10/1 and the 10k points is the new bonus going forward.

The latest email shows a Pro promotion for $10 and mentions that you still get the 10k points, so it pays for itself immediately. Don't know if current members can get in on it, but you might as well sign up everyone in your family.
