#14392217 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

Posted by tangytangerine on 21 April 2021 - 05:08 AM

I saw that game on Warehouse when I was browsing this morning.  I only have an Xbox One S, so I figured it would only be a disappointment when I finally booted it up.  Needless to say, I passed on it.  :shock:

That's actually what I'm playing it on(XB1 S 500GB model).    Doesn't seem that bad.

Got my $16 copy of Cyberpunk 2077 on XB1 a few hours ago.   Judging from the unboxing video I saw, the only missing was the sealed wrapping for the game case otherwise it was like a new.copy.   From the hour I've played so far, it looks like CDPR is working on the bugs as I only noticed a few texture popups from what I saw.

How is it that my Spiderman LE PS4 Pro is $175 TIV but the regular black PS4 Pro is $225??

 

Both are 1 TB...

Could be due to the black one being a generic SKU, not a certain year like the Spider-Man one is(2018).  So they might be offering more the black one, as they might get one that was made in 2019 or 2020 that has less wear and tear on it.

Got $22 for Forza 7 & $13.20 for Dark Souls 3 on XB1, not bad for those.   Along with the plain Persona 5($4.40) I got rid of since upgrading to the Royal edition,  I've got my Resident Evil Village Pre-order over halfway paid for.

Is anyone familiar with UPS return pickup? Amazon told me UPS will come by today or Monday and to leave my package out front and they will just come pick it up and ship it back. I called UPS and was told they will come out Monday and leave a slip and then come back the next day to pick up the item. That makes no sense. Why would they come back 2 days in a row when they can just take the item and return it that day? I called Amazon again and asked if I can just go to a local UPS store and drop it off but was told that the item doesn't have a QR code to email me so I would have to print out a label they email but I don't have a printer. I was then told I would have t o pay out of pocket to return the item. I was advised to ask UPS whenever they arrive on Monday if they can just take the item and return it right there and then. I was told UPS will provide a box to ship the item back in.

 

I don't know when they are coming on Monday so I have to wait all day. She said it could be as late as 8 pm. I have never returned a product through Amazon but this doesn't seem to be an easy thing to do. I suppose I can drive to a kinkos, pay to print out the label and then drive to the UPS store and return it that way but that's more driving than I want to do. I am just going to wait around on Monday and ask UPS when they get here if it can just be sent.

If you've got a local library that's open, see how much it is to print there.   That's where I go to print up the return labels for $.10.  

 

If you do print it up, look to see if there's a UPS drop off box closer than the UPS store.   As there's been times where it sits at a store for a few days, but the drop off box ones get picked up that day(if you get there before pick up time).

Looks like Control's season pass is the cheapest I've seen it($8.99).   Probably going to grab that later this week, as I just want to play the DLC and don't care about the PS5 upgrade that the Ultimate Edition is offering.

I don't even know what that is.  But I came home, there was an update, and now it's less user-friendly than it was this morning when I signed in to do my daily Microsoft Rewards searches.  

Trying setting to factory settings and keeping your games and apps.   I had that issue with a console update a few months ago and doing that fixed the problem.   It was the update where they were changing the MS store that slowed my XB1 down for me.

 

Think of it like the PS3/PS4's rebuilding database option.  Where something might not be installed correctly and resetting should repair the problem.

100% not this.
The transition from PS2 to PS3 is comparable to PS4 to PS5. Sony is going into this on top again, and they are acting like they are going into this on top again.

At least they're not removing rumble support in the controller because "it's last generation" like the Sixaxis.  When we all knew it's because Sony didn't want to pay any royalties to the company holding the patent.

 

One thing they have learned though is to not price the console higher than their competition unlike back then.  When the cheaper model was still more than the 360 Pro bundle.

The Xbox One Ultra-Slim Charge system is part of the current 4-hour sale ($19.99 instead of $29.99). Anyone have this, and would you recommend it over using rechargeable batteries (my current way of powering my controllers)?

 

https://www.gamestop.../11099130.html?

Just go with MS's official play and charge kit or some rechargeable AA batteries.  

 

3rd party kits usually cheap out on the battery quality(and the reviews reflect that).   So that it'll hold a charge somewhat the first few days/weeks, but drain quickly or won't charge at all soon after.  I learned my lesson during the Wii days to not deal with 3rd party charge kits after going through 3 different brands in a year.

Not seeing anything gaming related that's worth it.   They act like MK11 for $20 is a deal, when it's been the price on and off for the last 6 months.   Especially not worth it since the Ultimate Edition is coming out with all the DLC including the new Rambo, Rain and Mileena pack.
