Bargain Thread 2017


#2047

My understanding is that it is the port of the recent 3DS game, which was a sequel or remake? of the very cool DS version. The puzzle aspect was quite present in that one - you had to solve scenarios.


#2048

I felt the same way. However, MobyGames shows that it is the latest in the A-Train series.


#2049

Fanatical Star Deal today is Borderlands 2 GOTY for $7.49 (80%). It’s been this low before, but given all the DLC you get with GOTY, it’s worth buying even if you own the base game already.

Humble Store has a couple of decent deals going on:

IndieGala has a new Hump Day Bundle live. $3.99 for 10 Steam games (and 10 Gala Gold). The only title I recognize is Rencounter.

CoD WW2 for $40 is going to be gone gone gone by the time I get there. Like I said, last Black Friday, Best Buy’s games on sale were all gone by the time I leisurely made my way there Friday afternoon. Their Wolfenstein 2 price is even below Target’s. Only $25 instead of $30.

Also I’ve never seen Nintendo games discounted for Black Friday before. Mario Kart 7 for $20? I thought Mario games all perpetually stayed at full price for years?


#2051

Mario Kart 7 is the 6 year old 3DS game, so you weren’t wrong :)

I’ll be all over that $25 Wolfenstein 2 if they’re offering up a PC version as well.


#2052

I still can’t believe Need For Speed Payback will be $35 at all these places. I just want to reiterate that this game isn’t even out yet.


#2053

Have you seen the reviews ? There’s a reason based on the one eurogamer posted today.


#2054

No, but I’ll go look now. I didn’t know reviews were out. Though the Target ad leaked at this weekend, before any reviews, so they had this planned.

By the way I noticed just now on the Best Buy list: Sniper Elite 4 for $15. I really enjoyed watching Tom play that one. None of the Sniper games were on my radar before that. $15 seems like a great price for that one.


#2055

brigador just got another update (on top of the beefy Up-Armored update) that adds some more pilots, missions, cheevos, and horns.


#2056

Online is the way to go for Best Buy BF games. Been doing it for years, never had an availability problem.


#2057

Forgive me if already mentioned, but if you’re a PSN Plus member, the newly released Horizon Zero Dawn expansion is on sale for 14.99 (regular 19.99).


#2058

Man, is the PS4 Pro not going to drop at all?


#2059

I’m sure there will be a sale around thanksgiving, or at least a nice bundle.


#2060

The Target, Best Buy, and Walmart BF sale circulars are out, and no Pro deals to be seen. I think I saw a game bundle at a higher price point in the UK via Eurogamer, but not seeing much in that regard in the States.

Sony appears to be pushing the Slim and leaving the Pro for aspirational buyers and gadget freaks.


#2061

That’s what I’m afraid of. That Sony is going to keep its “premium product” at a premium price. Instead of trying to gut the sales of the XBOX by making its direct competitor cheaper, they will point at the existing $100 difference as enough of an incentive for “similar” performance for the 4K TV owners, while aggressively targeting the mass market with the Slim.

Not that I don’t understand the strategy, but I was counting on the Pro dropping at least $50. :(


#2062

Yeah. I was hoping for a PS4 Pro price cut or bundle this holiday season. Oh well. Maybe I’ll buy a switch instead.


#2063

I don’t really follow console stuff much, but there are usually a handful of console exclusives I’d like to play. I’d hate getting an inferior that may go obsolete a lot sooner. I don’t have a 4K TV and probably wouldn’t get one unless my current 1080P one goes belly up. It’s a 47’’ Samsung that I’ve had for around 10 years,

So, what type of user needs the PS4 Pro vs one of the cheaper models? Would I just be better off waiting for the Pro version to get cheaper down the line? I mean, it’s gotta drop at some point. While I’m generally a pretty impatient person, I don’t needs a PS4 or Switch - I would just like to play some of the games at some point.

#2065

Subjective caveat here, but if you don’t have a 4K TV—I would argue you need a 4K TV with HDR10—I don’t think the Pro will be worth the $150-200 difference over the Slim (BF prices).


#2066

That depends on your price sensitivity. I would never even consider buying anything other than a XboneX or PS4 Pro myself.
