I see me spending about $80-100 on this sale. Some good titles in there and surprisingly for me, a lot of BC titles I want to pick up.

Donnie812048d ago

Yeah this is a great sale. Ive already spent 80 to 100 lol

Skull5212047d ago

I’m pretty good this year on games though I did pick up the XCOM 2 expansion. I’m hoping to see some good sales in the Movies and TV section so I can flesh out some of my digital library but there doesn’t appear to be any Black Friday sales in there yet.

i'd rather see actual prices instead of percentages. 😒....at any rate, I'm only interested in hallow knight and it's not on that list so I'll keep waiting.

Tankbusta402047d ago (Edited 2047d ago )

Great sales...too bad I have AC:Odyssey, Red Dead 2, Hitman 2 to finish, so it wouldn't be prudent to spend anymore money for the backlog...but I am sure I will get at least one game :)

Alot’s changed in 25 years. We have games with $300 mill budgets, people not interested in games other than Fortnite and Minecraft, the older generation of gamers giving up the hobby or dying off, a period of super bad inflation where the industry decided to hike up prices on games, Gamepass harming game sales, GaaS games being pushed left and right with obnoxious monetization and worse looking/playing (Suicide Squad vs Arkham Knight).

The industry is just shite right now. Games ain’t selling, games cost massive amounts, businesses can’t bleed money and this is what happens. Part of it is on them and part of it is on consumers not buying.

Yi-Long40d ago

Consumers ain't buying because of what they're selling; There is no new SSX or Burnout, everything is now Online Required, everything is 'service', etc.

Indies are still delivering the goods, perhaps even better than ever, because those are often the guys and gals who know what they want to make and just make that and hopefully we dig it as well and support it ...

... but when you look at those multi-million budget AAA games, are they improving on what we have had before? Is the new Forza Motorsport better than a Forza Mototsport 4? Is Halo Infinite better than Halo 3? Is Dragon Age 2 such a huge improvement over the first Dragon Age? Etcetc.

Yeah, graphics have gotten better, worlds have gotten better, but I think a gaming generations stands or falls with diversity and experiences, and a few gens ago we had access to whatever we wanted, so if we wanted a boxing game we picked up one of the boxing games, if we wanted snowboarding we'd pick up one of the snowboarding games, if we wanted to do a rythm game we had DJ Hero, or Guitar Hero, or Rockband. If we wanted to sneak around we had Splinter Cell or MGS or whatever.

We had variety and we had options, and that makes or breaks a generation, imo. You're in a foodcourt of games and they're serving all kinds of different cuisines, and so you'd pick and choose whatever you felt like that day.

Right now, you're in a restaurant, and you're only allowed to pick from one menu, and there's a dress-code, and you have to register, and you have to stay in your seat, etc etc.

All Hopes I Had For A Prey Sequel Have Been Crushed — Well Done, Microsoft

The magnificent Prey was once again abandoned as Microsoft disregarded Arkane Austin's achievements and crucified it just for Redfall.

RaidenBlack43d ago

well, not entirely ... the main Arkane studio i.e Arkane Lyon's still there ...
Its only that, the sequel will take more time now ... after Blade & Dishonored 3

MrBaskerville42d ago

But who knows, Dishonored 3 could have been Austins next project, so might be cancelled.

RaidenBlack41d ago

Dishonored is Lyon's flagship IP ... Austin only assisted in the first one, the sequel was wholly developed at Lyon whilst Austin developed Prey.
If Dishonored 3 was indeed greenlit ... rest assured, it would've been helmed primarily by the Lyon studio.

-Foxtrot43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

Not even this Prey

Still longing for a sequel to the original Prey with Tommy

The studio didn't even want to call this Prey, it was just Bethesda being dicks to them for some reason.

RaidenBlack43d ago

MS closed Roundhouse Studios (ex-Human Head Studios) as well

Yui_Suzumiya42d ago

Yeah, that's who was going to do the original sequel.

bunt-custardly42d ago

Don't worry there are some other games in development that might fill that void. Look up Vigilancer.

isarai43d ago

Came here to say this, my hooes for a Prey sequel died when this "Prey" came out

Profchaos42d ago

Prey 2017 still hurts to play because what could have been looked so incredible

Profchaos42d ago

Same Bethesda basically screwed over the original developer team human head back around 2011 so it was really never going to come despite a honestly amazing trailer. I liked prey 2017 but it always held a stink of disappointment due to what we never got

FinalFantasyFanatic42d ago

I really didn't like this game, tried it because of how loved the original Prey was, played the demo of this one and thought it was garbage, it didn't feel nice/fun to play.

LostPotato43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

Keep dreaming then as Prey and Dishonored 2 did not sell well enough to get sequels.

Hence we got Deathloop and Redfall instead.

RaidenBlack43d ago

lol, Deathloop came from Prey: Mooncrash idea

Unknown_Gamer579442d ago

To everyone who cheered MS’s acquisitions, we told you so…

Inverno42d ago

Those people will just argue that Arkane Austin and Tango would've been shut down either way.

MrBaskerville42d ago

Zenimax allready put them in a tight spot by demanding them to do a multiplayer title. So it's not unlikely, considering how bad the game performed. They didn't stand a chance. MS had the money to save them and to correct Zenimax' mistakes.
