    Buh-bye. Don't let the Xbox-branded door hit you on the way out.

    Seriously, what is with the constant hate for all the sales lately? I mean, can't people tell the difference between an outright "bad sale" and a sale they themselves may not find appealing?
    To answer your question in the most simple form
    THE SALES ARE SHIT that's why.
    EVEN if there are a few weeks where the sales are not the greatest in your mind; moving solely to playstation only is the stupidest thing you could do coming off of xbox!

    Streets of Rage still 800 Points?
    you have to buy it through the sales and specials app or it will cost 800
    Ah. Thanks for clarifying. I'll do that when I get home.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If you don't like the specials, don't buy them. At least there ARE specials. There have been a boatload of sales recently. The bitching might be cathartic, but doesn't add to the discussion.

    PSN <<<<<< XBL. If you feel like playing without being able to talk to friends, have at it.

    I like my Xbox and have no intention of switching anytime soon (too invested in Xbox now), but cross-game chat does not let Live stack up against PS+ handing out free games to play (while a member).

    For me, since I rarely play online anymore, Xbox Live looks more like a bad deal compared to PS+ these days. At this point, the main reason I subscribe is so that I can use Netflix on the TV in the living room. I am seriously considering just putting the $60 towards a second Roku next time around and letting Gold expire.

    All depends on priorities. I play Xbox as a social experience as well as the gaming experience. Free games are nice... if they're good.

    Of course, I play tons of shit games, so...

    Of course, PSN has no achievements, so...

    Target had Arkham City: GOTY for sale for $15 on Black Friday but it missed it. Still got the standard edition for $15, though, so I'm excited to be able to get this DLC a little cheaper.

    And to address what someone already said about the Catwoman DLC coming with the game: I believe if you already own something in the chain reaction it gives you credit for that piece in the chain. I could be wrong, but I'll find out for sure tonight.

    I already own everything except the Bane mask and they all had big yellow check marks in them with the mask being the exception.

    I truely understand why people call these deals sh!t, and whine about them. If I had a 6 digit gamerscore and already owned these games I too would be upset; however, I have my little 5 digit gamerscore and I don't own Daytona USA or SVC: SoR so score for me!

    because people are basically impossible to please. you could give a game away for free and they would still complain....
    oh wait, they already did with Wreckateer and yes, people still complained!
    absolutely ridiculous.

    I think I'll grab Streets of Rage. Already got Daytona and SC5 doesn't interest me.

    Yeah Phantasy Star Subscriptions are pretty nice

    The Space Channel 5 Deal is only good if you don't want the Dreamcast Collection,because that can be easily found for less than £10 (£7 in Morrison's in shop).

    any idea if sales and specials + is gonna become avaliable in canada at any point in the future (near or far?)
  • Posted on 06 December 12 at 17:43Permalink
    The chain reaction would be really good... If the catwoman one was at the bottom. Seriously, seeing as it comes with a new copy of the game, why force people to buy that to get to the nightwing one? I would have actually bought the batman DLC this week if it wasn't for this. Even the bane mask sounds awesome.

    Reasons to skip this week:
    Batman DLC: I'll take GOTY edition when it's on the cheap.
    Streets of Rage: I'll wait for a Vintage collection disc to come out, then GameFly it
    Space Channel 5 2: same as above, though already out in retail
    Daytona: already bought but will prob be in a Sega arcade compilation disc sometime in the near future with the AM2 games that came out recently on XBLA

    Man, PS Plus is looking better and better...
    Sorry you missed AC:GOTY on the cheap. Ok so i still consider $30 for a great game with $35 of DLC cheap.

    Holy Shit I actually won the Scratch and Match and what I got was slightly disappointing. I was hoping for a game or something but instead all I got was the Venus Flytrap avatar prop from Guardian Heroes.

    The first time since they put this app up that I won and I got an avatar prop. I thought you got a game when you won. Has it always been an avatar prop?
