Pay what you want: more than $269 worth of PS4 games with the Humble THQ Nordic PlayStation Bundle 2

THQ Nordic has announced a Humble Bundle, allowing you to purchase a bundle of PS4 games at massive discount. This is the first time that games included in such a pack are available for use with PSN accounts from European regions and the Americas (SCIEE and SIEA)

Eidolon2035d ago

Lol. yeah if you calculate their full launch prices and not their current(permanent price-cut) non-sale prices.

2pacalypsenow2035d ago

Still all those games for $15 is a steal

Eidolon2035d ago (Edited 2035d ago )

Got most with PS +, PS Now, and previous humble bundle, or on flash sales.. some are only for the budget gamers(mediocre or just ok ratings).. so no, i wouldn't say it's a steal. quantity is not quality, you can't just tack on a game you're likely just playing because you bought it, and add it as part of the take.

2pacalypsenow2035d ago

Titan quest alone is worth $15, and Sine Moira.

Just because you pay for PS Now or bought a previous humble bundle doesn’t negate the fact that it’s a good deal for everyone else that hasn’t purchased any of these games.

Eidolon2035d ago (Edited 2035d ago )

it's only a steal if you will play most of those games.. i have seen most of these games cheaply on sale or on previous humble bundles. Again, with PS+ and PS Now, flash sales, and previous Humble Bundles(last one containing most of these games + better/more), it leaves a smaller audience that this would be a "Steal" for $15. Define steal.

Titan Quest is not worth $15, lol, 2006 game. By digital pricing, maybe, Digital is usually over priced when not on sale. i wouldnt even't pay $5 based on reviews and gameplay videos, lot of games i got on sale with similar experience and better developement, like Torment, or Divinity, or Pillars, or Diablo.. etc.

letsa_go2034d ago

Just because you think those games are worth it doesn't mean everyone else will. We aren't one hive mind!

Silly gameAr2034d ago (Edited 2034d ago )

@Eidolon

Why are you trying so hard to make this a bad thing? It's actualyl pretty awesome.

Tross2034d ago

@Eidolon Can't you apply that logic to all games in any sale ever though? If you don't end up playing the games you buy, then yes, even sales priced games are a waste of money. Actually, the logic you put forth applies to literally any product ever made. I don't care about knitting, so I wouldn't be interested in knitting implements even if they went on sale. If you're not at all interested in what's being offered, then it's not recommended you spend money on those games period. But, if you have even a passing interest and intend to at least try all the games or at least most of them, this sale is definitely worth checking out. It covers a good variety of titles that span multiple genres at the very least.

You have to keep paying for PS+ and PS Now to play those games though. And do you play most of the games on those services? Here you are buying them outright. Even if you were only interested in half of the games, it is still a great deal. You are not going to find anything like this on a flash sale. lol

Eidolon2034d ago (Edited 2034d ago )

Exactly, over priced. All those are sub $10 on sale. So with PS Now and PS+ users, it leaves much less people that this would appeal too. You get all the games for $15, but how many of them are you going to play, how many of them are actually worth playing. People complain that PS+ is not worth the $3.50 a month because they won't play any of the games.

CarlDechance2034d ago

Fine. If it isn't a good deal to you then it isn't a good deal to you. But the value that they advertise, that you said was incorrect, is actually true. You said the $269 was based on the games launch prices. That was just false.
So don't say "exactly" like I proved your point when I actually proved you wrong.

rainslacker2034d ago (Edited 2034d ago )

$15 bucks for all those games is a damn good price regardless. Even If you got some of them already. If you have no interest in them, then sure, it's not for you, but the price itself is still good.

Unless your one of those people who thinks they should just give you the game for free.

caxa2034d ago

I’m making over $17k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life.
This is where i started ........

Just wished each game had its own individual code since this is the 3rd time Darksiders and Destroy All Humans 2 has been offered in a THQ Humble Bundle for Playstation.

rainslacker2034d ago (Edited 2034d ago )

From my understanding if you got then through ps+ in the past, they won't be added to your permanent library for use if your sub expires.

It's something Sony should have fixed a long time ago, since image a couple bundles from various devs where I have a game from ps+. You can't even buy the games on sale if they're in your library from ps+

You can get any game from the bundle if you don't have them in your library though

annoyedgamer2034d ago

Nice website name. Only a true old school gamer will know where it came from.

Cussing2034d ago

AOE 2 was and still is IMO the best RTS game ever.

Steam Account Transfer Via Will on Death is Not Permitted, Valve Confirms

In case you were curious, a Steam account transfer via will is not permitted according to an official response from Valve.

anast1d 17h ago

The games are theirs. People just pay to ride the ride.

Skuletor1d 1h ago

Would be nice if the article's writer looked into and reported whether other digital game libraries could be transferred over via will (Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo, EGS, EA app, GOG, Ubisoft Connect, Rockstar Launcher etc) instead of this half-baked piece but it's probably the same for all of them anyway

Kornholic1d ago

This seems like a way bigger issue than mandatory PSN account linking for PlayStation games.

So where is the outcry?

Skuletor1d ago

It's not like PlayStation is doing any different.

"You may not sell, buy, trade, or transfer your Online ID, Account or any personal access to PSN Services through any means or method, including by use of web sites."
https://www.playstation.com...

Kornholic5h ago

So you are that saying Steam is being very anti consumer with its policies. That's why I'm so baffled by the lack of outcry from the PC audience.

NotoriousWhiz1d ago (Edited 1d ago )

It's not like your account just stops working when you die. Include your email, account id, and password in the will (including the password to your email) and your survivors should have no problem using your games.

anast21h ago

PC gamers are a different lot. They don't mind renting their games forever, they don't mind spending money on overpriced equipment, and they don't mind fiddling with settings for hours before they even play the game, but linking a PSN account demands a riot. This is hard to understand, but then again, we all have to draw our lines somewhere.

Skuletor21h ago

You sure talk a lot of nonsense.Go look up the percentage of digital sales compared to physical sales of PS5 games, then tell me again about "renting" games.
