These picks aren’t that great, obviously it’s entirely subjective but still

Control is $9. There's a lot of good games. It's just weird seeing games 5+ years old going on sale for $20. Back in the early 2000s, if a 5 year old game was on sale it would be under $5 at walmart.

$11 in the year 2000 is $20 today adjusted for inflation.

Ever since the pandemic ended, I think developers are less willing to give good discounts, there's a few I've been waiting on good deals for, but 4 or 5 years later, they're not hitting below $50 (aussie dollars). Nintendo in particular are guilty of this, especially for their first party games.

@FinalFantasyFanatic Nintendo is the worst with dropping game prices, quite possible the most anticonsumer practice in the industry. Activision is pretty bad too, though who knows if that will change now.

Mostly a whole bunch of titles from the subscriptions of the world at not cheap prices.

Literally read the title wrong and thought it was a list. That's what I get for trying to post articles first thing in the morning.

Rift Apart for 30 bucks is pretty good. Everything else here is either barely a discount or has been free on PS+

Angyobangyo83d ago

There are no free games on PS+, you're paying for a subscription service to play games.

@Angyobangyo
Yes, I think we all know this. No need to be pedantic.

@Angyobangyo
Honestly one of the sillier things people say. "Free on PS+" means if you have a PS+ subscription you get the game without any additional cost. VS Sales like "50% off with PS+"

(I don't pay for a single game subscription service btw. You can still call them "free on ___")

I love browsing the PS store constantly, but the “sales” are pretty constantly shit imo. It’s always the same games on “discount”. I think better PS5 deals are found elsewhere for games.

Opening this list with Hogwarts Legacy at $47 tells you all you need to know

At this point, this is just funny

Funny up until you realise a once brimming with talent studio is in the shit now.

To be fair even if Rocksteady were forced to make a live service game they couldve done a better job. Like i get the whole upper management interfering and demanding things to be added but theres a number of live service titles that have come out that were still good games...recent Helldivers is a very good example.
You can still have good gameplay and interesting ideas/mechanics even if its a live service title. Something Suicide Squad sorely lacked.

It's pretty hilarious

They wanted all their games to be live service going forward yet their first big GaaS game is a complete failure, ruining Rocksteady's reputation in the process yet the one which isn't GaaS, the pure single player experience is the one which goes onto being their biggest success.

Gee. It's almost like it's telling them something.

Would be if it wasn't so sad.

WB is the only one doing the surprised Pikachu face lol I didn't see many positive hopes for this game ever since they dropped the first gameplay footage. Should've cancelled it all together right at that moment

Stana9h ago(Edited 9h ago)

So going forward the plan is to make all WB games live service? Good luck with that.
Suicide of the franchise indeed.

Wonder what kind of guns we'll be using in Hogwarts Legacy 2

The moment Kill The Justice League was shown to not be single player, it was never going to be purchased by me. Shame that Rocksteady went that route.

I just hope WB plucks out that wild hare they have up their a** for GaaS. Like, how many f*cking times do you have to fail before it gets through your thick skull? At this point it almost feels like defiance and they won’t stop until consumers finally give in and splurge on microtransactions and praise an unfinished, anemic, shell of a game with a grind-hard gameplay loop that the only way to not lose your mind is to pay to make the grind easier.

"how many f****** times do you have to fail before it gets through your thick skull"

Basically

"How Many Times Do We Have to Teach You This Lesson, Old Man?"

Indeed. Sounds pretty accurate.
