Hardcore Gamer: The fourth day of one-day only sales is live, and brings some major and minor discounts to the Games on Demand service.
"Hitman: Absolution is a must-buy at $10. It will likely never be cheaper than that digitally" lol it was free a few months ago with PS+
Yeah but if your PS+ expires or you can't afford to renew it then it becomes vapourware another words you no longer own it.
it's an offline game, play it and move on to the next.. And why would you let ps+ expire with all those games every month..
It doesn't matter if it expires. Later down the road if u get a ps plus trial card, u instantly get accessed to it. And ur comparing buying vs ps plus which is different. I saw the ultimate sales and I was disappointed. Most of them are gamestop used prices. Borderlands2 was the best they had for 9.99
Then count yourself lucky, that you don't have prices like we do in NZ. Games like Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2, Witcher 2 and XCOM used $49.95 from stores like EB games Brand new they range from $54.00 to $109.00 each Bioshock Infinite $60.00 used $109.00 brand new So in my country XBL ultimate sale prices are a steal that we cant get anywhere else, at least not in a bricks and mortar retails shop. Not even when they are having huge sales.
'So in my country XBL ultimate sale prices are a steal that we cant get anywhere else' this is exactly why u need ps plus. ever week is a ultimate game sale with ps plus on top of the free games.
I have been waiting for Bioshock, Tomb Raider and XCOM, but I can get the first two cheaper on Amazon and they are brand new. I can save £5 if I bought XCOM digitally. Digital copies are overpriced, especially in the UK. I've seen games on PSN and GoD for £50, when you can get those same games for £38 on launch. Sales don't come around very often and they don't drop the prices permanently for quite a while whereas I can get a copy of Bioshock for £25 instead of £35 on GoD on sale.
Steam do it better and cheaper
Shame, XBO would have been able to reach the level Steam is on in terms of pricing flexibility, but they backed down. Too bad, MSFT. All good, PC gamers.
Your not wrong there but MS can still do the same with the digital side of their business plan if they play their cards right.
I was so waiting for MGSRR. Now I got MGSRR. Muahaha!
