    It really is. Too bad I already own 4/5 of the games I want. Can't afford to pay $20 for Action Henk and 5 games I don't care about lol

    Might get Instant Indie Hits, all I own is Thomas Was Alone, and maybe Mass Effect, but it'll probably be in the Vault soon enough.

    I'd been holding out on a Deal on Ghostbusters as I heard it was terrible. Tempted, but I still wonder if £13.20 is too much for it.

    Has anyone played it? Is £13.20 still too much for it?

    You and me both. cry
    Why pre-order a game if you don't intend to play it as soon as it is released?

    That's exactly what I was thinking. Good news for cheapskates like me though :)

    I purchased this before but a LOT of the games have unobtainable achievements. Stealth Inc 2 is a great game though.

    One of the games has one unobtainable. Annoying, yes, but I'm not sure I'd define it as a 'LOT'.

    No offence but I don't understand why you're preordering a game that you aren't going to play when you get it. Were 2 months in to the future and you still haven't played it. I just don't see a point in that.

    I bought the Indie Games Bundle before and have completed half of them I think, Action Henk is awesome but would be very difficult to 100%, I have Gold on most courses and Rainbow on less than 10 and am at less than 300gs, put a good 10-15 hours into it

    Is it just me or are we getting the same deals every other week.
    Apart from Mass Effect: Andromeda I'm pretty sure that Metro's and Saints Row has been done before at least a couple of times...

    Silence the whispered world is also there when you click on the sales on the dash but at full price, is it supposed to have a price drop or something?

    EA tend to put their games on sale after a couple of months. I picked up Battlefield 6-8 weeks after release with a similar discount. It went back up to full price afterwards though, but has popped up in a few more sales since. I imagine ME:A will be the same. I also doubt it'll end up in the vault until towards the end of the year.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    Yeah it is a good strategy as you always get a slump in sales numbers during that period so putting it on sale gets you more numbers which makes it look good on annual sales reports. It also keeps it in the charts longer so the game is in physical stores longer.

    Life happens. When you preorder something it's hard to say what's going to be happening at release. I've never done this with preorders, but there are games that I bought years ago that I haven't touched
