#14032492 Best Buy Black Friday in July Sale 7/27-7/28 | Early Access 7/26

It's not just you man. This thread is filled with ludicrous replies. Best Buy has been setting the retail standard of video game sales for many years. A lot of people can't see anything past themselves though.

You can't point to the past and assume that's the current situation. They did set the standard (which I mentioned already BTW) but are now competing against themselves.

If you guys perceive objectively negative assessment of the current situation as "complaining", you need some more context in your life. Only young people without a willingness to learn or lightly debate see that as "negative" and "harshing my mellow man". Grow up; either reply with something fruitful, or move along. The blanket statement "this thread is filled with ludicrous replies" is in fact ludicrous - it offers nothing.

They're not going to have crazy blowout replacement sales while many of still have GCU into 2020.

So your advice is what, to not be competitive for the next two years?

They've had sales before, and with every single day, there are fewer GCU members. This means the amount of deals should steadily increase, not drastically decrease as it has been. They could have easily had competitive prices for this sale and make GCU ineligible, as they have for their actual BF ads. I think we've run out of justifications and excuses for them.

I'm not expecting blowout sales. Just...something. While I agree customers aren't "owed" anything especially if the GCU program was financially unstable, we are not to blame for the market standards THEY'VE helped create. They've dug their hole and they're only digging deeper. It's time to think up ideas to restore customer faith, not be antagonistic. Otherwise, basic economics tells us that we will absolutely be sucked up by another retailer, even if it's PSN and XBL themselves.

I've never had an opinion about a company this size flip so hard in such short time.

Not really, you have to buy a Samsung TV and an Xbox. You'd save a lot more than $100 buying the TV elsewhere.

Then he'd have to use the $100 at Best Buy. On what...games? Lol

I wonder if Tyrok is saddened by the notion that his thread went from the most sought after to the most underwhelming threads in recent memory.

If this is BB at their best, I think it's time to start writing the eulogy. These are just the same prices over and over again, and even PSN has been undercutting these prices. The notion they are advertising these as Black Friday prices is pretty insulting.

 

I feel like their strat is to overwhelm customers with many games "on sale" but keep the prices high, in hopes that customers will say "well I have to get something during this sale" - half these games will see massive price drops in the coming months. Hold strong.

 

I know I am for GoW. It'll be $30 on Amazon in a couple weeks, I can feel it.

I love how everyone is coyly raising the price of No Man's Sky back up, as if to pretend the glorified early access launch never happened xD

Just received mine today. I agree with the reviews in that it is very soft and comfy, and it looks as good as the picture. Very a aesthetically pleasing.

I like the fact i can choose what I like, and not be told what is “good” and what shouldnt be allowed on the system.

What one person likes doesnt mean everyone likes.

This is true. My point however is that by turning this into modern day Steam, it's actually MORE difficult to conveniently find quality games. All you have to do is look at Steam to understand what this eShop is slowly becoming. Nintendo has stated they want 20-30 games per week on eshop. That tells me they value quantity over quality - another Steam marketplace failure. I don't see how anyone could think that's a good idea for the regular gamer (unless you think the likes of the Apple app store and Steam are healthy marketplaces, of course).

It's a bubble that's going to burst and may possibly hurt even the most reputable of 3rd party developers. There is such a thing as too much, especially in this industry.

There's no denying that Steam isn't as healthy of a store because they have oversaturated the marketplace. Repeating this history would be an oversight on Nintendo's part.

These games lists are looking a lot like Steam nowadays. A bit nauseating, really. I remember the days where, if a game was put on the eShop, it was most likely good. Now a good game is the exception.

Some of these indie devs should realize that you first have to become a hit, THEN make a limited edition. Bleed 2? Are you serious? Perhaps the markup is so ridiculously huge that maybe it costs nothing to make these because you can recoup costs after the 5th sale xD

Seems like an outdated ad.
