In Topic: PSN Weekly Deals - 7/22: Summer Sale! $21 Control, $20 Chocobo...

This. I prefer Xbox but buy exclusives on PlayStation. But with most games going everywhere it’s just a matter of preference. One reason I like Xbox is for the controller and I do like the direction they are going in with GamePass. That said I also love PSVR.

Console wars are stupid. Just do you.

For me it mainly depends on version differences.  Like I'd go for switch versions for the portability factor and occasionally they come with extra content.  But they also more often than not cost more than the ps4 and xbox versions so when the price is 10 or more difference I just picked up those over switch versions. And we have to throw in pc as well which occasionally is the cheapest option for a game. 

 

The only things that matter to me would be price of games, the systems and accessories and whatever exclusives they have (which nintendo usually has the strongest grouping of exclusive wise).  I wait till the systems are cheap to pick them all up and play all of them.  I see no reason to back only one of them unless you have no interest in what few games other systems offer.

 "And all those games mentioned above wouldn't have been financial successes otherwise."
 
A few of those games aren't sony ips so their success has little to nothing to do with sony. ff is gonna sell moderately well because of brand recognition.  ff also hasn't been a console exclusive since the beginning of the ps2 gen. and persona atlus has been building up for the better part of a decade now and fills a niche in the genre as there aren't many games like it.  And with stuff like p4 moving to steam odds are that they will be moving p5 and p3 there as well eventually for more sales.

There are still a bunch of stores around me that have several copies of Destiny 2 for 3 cents. Can someone explain to me what the reasoning to buy one would be? Is there code or something?

iirc it has a free month of ps+ in it assuming that's the version people were mentioning a while back.

Got $45.50 for NSMBU toward Paper Mario, cashier said that’s the most he’s ever seen a game trade in for. He clearly doesn’t know about the summer of 2015 when Pikmin 3 went for $72 with a trade in promo lol. (or was is summer of 2016???)

But 5,000 points disappeared randomly so I assume a auto cert happened but it hasn’t showed up so I didn’t get to use it, oh well

Or xenoblade which traded in for around 50.

My order from the 50% off sale arrived.  Surprised they delivered it after 9pm at night.  mario & luigi paper jam and pikmin both came in original cases, pokepark came in a generic black case, pokemon sun and moon in the clam shell clear plastic things.  The discs were surprisingly good. pokepark only had one tiny dent on it the size of a pin and pikmin had no flaws at all.  Whoever owned them previously took good care of them.
