You should be OK with Game, but they have had a few blunders with Nintendo pre-orders over the last couple of years

I'm sure something happened to the Wolly World pre-order but I can't find a link to it now

People on here have also had problems with preorder bonuses going missing too.

Not sure if this is the place to ask, but I got real tempted by the Odin Sphere offer for Vita on PSN. Only thing is... I'd really like to have the physical copy on the PS4 since the cover art is gorgeous, it'd be great to see that on my shelf. It's about 30 quid more on Amazon still though, and I'm not sure if it's the type of game where physical copies are rare and won't show signs of lowering price.

Anyone got any clue on this? I don't even know if there's been any good sales on the physical copy in the past, but if there's a chance then I'd rather wait.

Hard to say with NISA games, but usually you will not see major pricedrops except for local clearance sales or something.

Checking earlier PS4 releases, Digaea is still £30+, even Akiba's Trip is still £25 and that's 1 1/2 years old. But the games also hold their resale value if you want to get rid of them again later.

If you want cheap NISA games digital sales are your best option.

Ah... Yeah, I see what you mean. Alright, thank you kindly for the perspective! I think I'll go digital after all. The game's the most important thing and the cover is looking more like a luxury I can't afford.

Does anyone know any twitter accounts/bots that quickly and reliably post deals? Specifically UK/Online/Console, but a few other mixed in wouldn't be a problem.

Basically Wario64 for the UK.

And I mean actual deals, not "10 year old PC game for £2" or "this pre-order is £1 cheaper than everywhere else". Savygamer for example is way too spammy for my taste. Once there is some bigger sale every game gets its own tweet and turns my timeline into garbage

I wonder if we'll ever see it cheaper than that or if it will be one of these games that creeps up in price.


Anyone seen any cheap deals for Battlezone (PSVR)? £49.99 on Amazon seems insane.

I bought a t-shirt from eBay recently and used Shipitto, they were pretty good. Got here way quicker than expected and shipping was dirt cheap considering where it came from. I'm in Ireland as well in case you're curious. That's only one experience though.

That was fast! I think it's likely to be one of those games that will creep up in price forever once it's sold out everywhere, at least there's always the digital download as a last resort.

Still a couple of places to buy it sub RRP though:

Speaking of expiring Xbox Credit. Can you not use it on pre-orders?

Since they don't charge for pre-orders until near release, it doesn't get deducted from your account. So surely that means it'll just expire instead of being used for the pre-order?

The only other i'm aware of is https://twitter.com/ukgamedeals however they were very hit and miss and looking now seem to have stopped earlier this year.

Isn't it cross buy? So you could get a physical xbone version and the code should work on pc too.

Other than Amazon.com, Nvidia keys have worked just fine since they launched the campaign. So as long as you buy from a place with buyer protection or a site/person you can trust, you should be just fine. Going price seems to be around 30 euros at least in Finland.

£33 for the bundle, bringing them in line with titles like the RE remasters..

I can wait for steeper discounts though.

Did they get around to fixing them? Last I heard they were a bit of a mess and the DLC hadn't been included.

I managed to get REmake for £10, which I'd gladly pay for either Alliance game. WIth Activision the steeper discounts are quite unlikely.

I'll bask in the stupidity that these are the biggest console Marvel games for the last five years ;_; Save us Insomniac Spidey.
