    This is at least the 3rd time Dragon’s Lair has been on sale since September. Personally, I’d like to see the Carnival Games DLC and Body & Brain Connection DLC on sale. (Carnival Games DLC has been on sale before, but it’s been over a year since Monkey Dancin’ Pack was on sale.) I’m sure other Kinect fans have ideas for Kinect Central sales.

    I do give MS recognition for a new deal last week, Home Run Stars. I wasn’t personally interested, but nice to have some variety in the sales.

        PSN+ is nothing more than Scam Rental service that is designed to make ignorant gamers believe they are getting free games when in reality Sony should be improving their bare bones piss poor network instead.

        People seem quick to pick apart at PS Plus about the games being “rented”, but I’d much rather “rent” games ive never played before than “rent” the online portion of a game ive paid £40/$60 for.

        You know what happens when you stop paying your rental subscription to MS? That copy of Left 4 Dead 2 you paid for becomes worthless. That CoD game you just bought – half of it becomes inaccessible. I guess thats fine though…

        The funny part is all the PSN+ subscribers i’ve ran into claim as long as i keep paying i get to keep those rented games, but how long do you think they will keep PSN+ going on the PS3 once PS4 comes out

        Like

      • PSN_IS_GARBAGE

        Well there is some truth to that. If you say subscribed you will have access to those games but only as long as you stay subscribed. I have no idea how long they will keep it going, but I would imagine it would carry over on to the PS4. Then again If sony does what I think they are going to do and charge for PSN regardless of PSN+, they might just keep it to sweeten the deal.
        I just have a problem with the way alot of these guys phrase PSN+’s instant game collection. They say they own the games when in reality they are just renting them.. there’s a big difference ya know?
        It’s also the same for 360 when it comes to XBL gold.. we are just renting the online MP portion just like we are renting the service, apps and all it’s features. Same thing as any other subscription for that matter. Even dish and cable subs are rental services.
        This is the way I see things, what do you think Ryder?

        They give you good games for “free” (inFamous 2, The King of Fighters XIII, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, etc.) and think about it: if you’re paying for the service each year, that’s a really good deal. Then, if you want the games physical format, you could buy them later at a lower price.

    Another lame DOTW. Been waiting forever for these items to go on sale:

    Banjo Kazooie
    Banjo Tooie
    You Don’t Know Jack
    Mass Effect 2 DLC
    Mass Effect 3 DLC
    Force Unleashed DLC
    Kinect Sports DLC

    I’m not saying these items have to go on sale for me to be happy with the DOTW, but it’s frustrating checking every week and hoping for one of these and then finding the same awful deals several times over. Just give these items a permanent price drop (as well as all other DLC that’s old), and give us real deals on stuff that’s come out in the past six months or so.

      Mass Effect 2 DLC has been on sale numerous times. The You Don’t Know Jack DLC has also been on sale a couple of times as well (as I bought them at half price) and you are better off buying a hard copy of the game as it will be cheaper. The Kinect Sports DLC has also been on sale at least once in the past year.

      So the only things on your list that has not been on sale or reduced is the Force Unleashed content and the newest Mass Effect 3 DLC. I agree about the Force Unleashed content as it was overpriced to begin with and should be permanently reduced, especially since it has never been on sale to my recollection (or at least not within the past 2 years).

        ME 2 DLC hasn’t been on sale in at least a year. I know because I’ve been looking for it since before ME 3 came out. For You Don’t Know Jack, I was talking about the GoD, not DLC. Though it may have been on sale in recent memory since I only recently started looking for that one. I don’t remember seeing KS DLC in the past year. I may have missed it, but are you sure you’re not referring to KS2 DLC that was on sale?

        Regardless, it all comes back to things needing to have permanent price reductions rather than occasional sales for things that are way overpriced for how long they’ve been available.

    I just downloaded both Megaman 9 AND 10 for free with PS+.

    And I bought Earthworm Jim a couple weeks ago for only one dollar on PS3, without needing a subscription.

    You can compare consoles all day, and I won’t start that (I had only 360 for years and recently added PS3), but when it comes to the digital stores there is absolutely no comparison. Sony essentially allows companies to set their own prices and sales whenever they want, Microsoft controls all prices themselves, which is why these deals are frequently disappointing.

  • BlinkFandango

    Since my other comments were apparently moderated: All of next week sales have been on sale before (although not by as much in some cases like Hydrophobia). Mega Man 10 was on sale 3 years ago for LESS. It should be permanently discounted.

    Also, I am picking up Dragon Age 2 DLC since I apparently only bought 1 of the 3 last time they went on sale. Although I would have picked it up a while ago if it had been permanently discounted already. look’s like Mirror’s Edge DLC will never get discounted, so I might have to pick it up full price, same goes for Burnout Paradise DLC. Luckily I’m getting Halo Wars Platinum Hits for $15 and I can sell my old Halo Wars to get the DLC for that game. Everything else I want is new and should go on sale eventually (I hope).
