GTA: Episodes from Liberty City now out for PS3- $39.99
GTA 4 is advertised to coincide with the Episodes -$29.99

So the better deal is to get GTA 4 which comes with the episodes?

mikepmcc5218d ago

No, coincide meaning the deal is going on at the same time, meaning 4 is 30 bucks. Pretty bad "deals" if you ask me.

I thought GTA IV was already $30. Actually about $20 at some places.

Rich16315218d ago

You can get better deals on the internet, that is why I buy 95% of my games from Amazon, free (and fast) shipping, no tax, and at least $10-15 less. I ain't been to Best Buy in years to buy games, even Circuit City had better deals...shame they went out of business.

Kalowest5218d ago

BB is cool, you can price-match to amazon to save money, say you see a game on Amazon for $35, add the shipping(They have alot of options)it comes out to $39-$42, you can just go to BB and get it for $35 and get some BBRP.

@Kalowest

I wasn't aware Best Buy honored price matching with online stores such as Amazon. If this is true Best Buy might get more of my money now.

El_Colombiano5217d ago

WOW Price matching Amazon? Are they daft!? This will ruin them.

@ 3.1

Any order over $25 on Amazon is eligible for free shipping and depending on what state you live in you don't have to pay sales tax. Though your right there are other options. I prefer free over other options though. :P

The reason I posted the deals is because people maybe interested in a Borderlands deal that isn't Steam, and Bad Company 2 as well. Some people rather buy in store and receive the item all at once. Though I understand what you guys mean about Amazon.

Best Buy usually has weak deals. Amazon ftw

Looking Back At 2008, An Unbelievably Incredible Year Of Video Game Releases

Huzaifa from eXputer: "2008 was home to the likes of Call of Duty: World at War, Dead Space, GTA 4, Far Cry 2, Left 4 Dead, and many other hits, which is outright remarkable."

ChasterMies82d ago

Some of these low paid video game “news” writers weren’t born before 2007.

just_looken81d ago

Here here

Those that were around before 2000's i am sure are like me that think we entered a world of non readers or those that follow without question.

I can not wait to see fallout 3 a goty game even though it was about water with non content until you add the dlc/updates then you got the performance/crashing

CrimsonWing6982d ago

I don’t think anything can compare to 2023

lucasnooker82d ago

1998 - the best year in gaming! Metal gear solid, crash bandicoot 3, medievil, half life, ocarina of time, thief, tenchu, resident evil 2, Spyro, tomb raider 3, oddworld abes exodus, banjo kazooie.

It was a different breed of a gaming era. You’ll never understand what it was like back then. The aura of gaming, it was different!

KyRo82d ago (Edited 82d ago )

I second this. Gaming was a lot more varied and fun than it is today. I'm 35 so getting on compared to some here but I got to see all the changes from NES up to now but I've never felt so disappointed in any generation than I have this current gen. I was expecting more from this generation rather than prettier versions of games that came before it. Game mechanics have become so refined that alot of games feel the same and has done for a while now.

Maybe it's time to have a break for a while. I love gaming but I don't feel I get much fun in the traditional sense out of it anymore.

CrimsonWing6982d ago (Edited 82d ago )

Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, Abe’s Exodus, and Ocarina of Time are the only things from that list that I liked.

Here’s the 2023 game releases that I personally liked… and big releases that I didn’t care for:

- Dead Space Remake
- Wo Long Dynatsy
- Resident Evil 4 Remake
- Diablo 4
- Fire Emblem Engage
- Hogwarts Legcay
- Street Fighter 6
- Hi-Fi Rush
- Like a Dragon: Ishin
- Octopath Traveler 2
- Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters
- Final Fanatsy XVI (actually ended up not liking this, but it was still a big deal release)
- Baldur’s Gate 3
- Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon
- Lies of P
- Mortal Kombat 1
- Marvel’s Spider-Man 2
- Starfield (Ended up hating this one, but big release)
- Super Mario Bros. Wonder
- Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom (I’m an old-school Zelda fan, but didn’t really enjoy this game)
- Alan Wake 2

I mean, honestly I’ve never seen a year of major IP releases like that, ever.

Profchaos82d ago (Edited 82d ago )

Isn't it just a generational thing realistically.

I've been gaming since way back and I some of my favourite games go as far back as the late 80s for me each generation has a year or two of game changing releases one after another before an inevitable dry spell.

I kind of agree gaming had a different feel games hit different because we didn't have the internet nothing got spoiled and you really had to put in the effort to beat a puzzle which could set entire groups of people looking for a solution. But most importantly games were experimental and not as cookie cutter as today even basics like controls were not universal today r2 is shoot l2 is ads garunteed you can't deviate from that in a shooter back then it could of been square, R1 or R1 and circle nothing was standard.

But as time moves on a new generation picks up their controller they are going to be interested in different things that PS1 demo disc with the t Rex blew our primitive 16 bit brains back on launch but to kids today it's laughable.
The new gen of kids coming into to hobby seem to value different things to us there seems to be a huge focus on online play, streamers, gaming personalities, and social experiences, convience of digital downloads. To me I value none of that but that's ok like my parents not liking the band's I would listen to its just the natural cycle.

Gameseeker_Frampt81d ago

Just about every year in the 7th generation was great and something we most likely won't experience again.

2009 for example had Assassin's Creed 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age: Origins, Uncharted 2, Halo 3: ODST, Killzone 2, Borderlands, Bayonetta, and Demon's Souls to name a few.
