#14401917 Final Fantasy 7 (PS5 version) will be $59.94 at Walmart

Posted by shadowysea07 on 10 June 2021 - 05:53 AM

There really is no reason to buy the PS5 version at such a high price. Get the PS4 version since it gets the PS5 update. The DLC is roughly 5+ hours long so I don't think that's worth $60+ for the PS5 disc or $20 for just the DLC.

 

You can get the PS4 version for $30-$40, do that instead.

less than that with the gamefly groupon deal. should be around 10.79 iirc if its 30.

Isn't the ps5 upgrade free and you just have to buy the dlc?  Seems like there's no reason to buy this if the dlc isn't on disc other than for collection purposes.

I can get trying to prevent glitches from being taken down once they became public semi public knowledge. But the least that can be done is give a hint to those people asking and or via pm if need be. The sarcasm just makes you look like jerks especially when a this is a deal thread and the whole point is to discuss deals. And making the joke obviously falls flat if you need to explain it.

Any 2DS XL's go up, or just the regular 2DS?

Only regular 2ds have been popping up as of late. first blue then crimson 2 or 3 times and now green.  Missed the other colors. I should have just ordered another blue one when they were in stock but I already have that one.

Jeez the thread is just rolling with shit posts lately.

Back on topic with actual deal discussion is the 10 20 30 gift card promo thing actually working this time? As last time all the promos were derped up and didn't work due to overlap possibly.

I was just about to mention that the new store seems less terrible than I thought it was, with the nice sort/filter options... but it keeps freezing up, not responding when I click on something, and refreshing the page resets all my search options and sends me back to the main sale page.

For God's sake, Sony...

Sony can only be bothered to prevent people from actively using the old psn store.  But god forbid they fix what's actually broken. Someone needs to find a damn exploit in the new store.  Sony would fix that in like 5 minutes.

Wish I had Meijers or even any other used video game chains like I see in all the youtube videos!  :hot:

 

Whenever I looked at Mercari, there just didn't seem like much stock of anything, I guess I'm looking for obscure things... don't really plan on selling at the moment (no need for cash or space right now... renovating for more!)  =;

 

What are the typical cuts to sell on ebay / amazon / mercari via paypal (i don't even know what alternatives are to paypal these days... i know all the kids like to use Venmo!) From what I gather ~15% for ebay/mercari, and amazon ~20%?  :bomb:

Mercari is 10% plus whatever the random processing fee ends up being. Usually not higher than like 2$. 

They also require the buyer to send photos for a return in cases where the item isn't as described or damaged so compared to other places they have your back basically. And due to the auto rating system you'll always get feedback score unlike amazon and ebay.

With the God of War delay, I could use a nice B2G1 with Valhalla, TLOU2 and Miles Morales to finish up my PS4 backlog. 

Not what you are looking for but valhalla is on sale on gamefly for 20 and groupon has a 20$ gamefly voucher for 10 deal running according to a post in another thread.

Scummy as it may be, Gamestop couldn't just reprint those games without Nintendo's approval, so it's not entirely fair JUST to blame Gamestop for what happened. Nintendo also gets the blame for letting the company do it. Whatever the deal was, lots of copies of Xenoblade Chronicles and Metroid Trilogy showed up at Gamestops. For all we know, the reason they all showed up used was because Nintendo reprinted the games, took a big cut, and then had Gamestop sell them "used." It wouldn't make sense for this to happen at the scale it did without NOA being involved/sanctioning the sales.

In the end, I will say one benefit of this was that these games became more available to more players. Until then, they were hard to find, so it was good to see the reprints. Personally, I am ALL FOR publishers helping to reprint games. Frankly, it's surprising Gamestop didn't do more of this using its retail influence. Rather than publish original games, the company could have truly taken its slogan, power to the players, by helping bring OOP games back for sale. That would have been a great brand assist, and helped move a lot of units through exclusivity (far better and more on-brand than Funkopop exclusives). GameQuest Direct did this for a few games, and it proved very helpful for certain publishers to widen their customer base. Oh well. I suppose Gamestop could strike a deal with LRG, but even there, looks like Best Buy beat them to it.

No idea whether they could or not. Without details of the agreement where they were given exclusive distribution rights to it for brick n mortar in na we have no way of knowing for sure.

As for Nintendo they likely don't even know or care given that they had to have their arm twisted behind their backs to even release the damn game in the first place in na.

GameStop did reprint of xenoblade and Metroid from what I recall. It was really scummy.

Dingers wise I got in on the ps5 controller dinger set when those were on sale.  As usual it's a complete crap shoot especially with a vague description like that. Best indication of a dinger in my experience is when it says small mark x/x small mark on this or that and details of the length.

I picked up DBZ when GameStop had the 50% off sale so it sounds like a good pickup then.
