PSN Store "Blockbuster Games" Sale | Ends 10/13

These sales do an excellent job convincing me I made the right decision to buy a disc edition PS5.

ID: herjd2w

you and me both hah

ID: herl9j2

I've done the math on how much I've saved with the disc version in just one year and it comes to around $600. In one year.

Barring some really crazy circumstances, I never understood pre-release what the digital crowd were so excited about. "I mostly only play digital anyway" is a great hard line to take if you just want to play fewer games over all or spend way more money to play more.

ID: hersbzq

Where do you get disc games that cheap to be saving that much money?

ID: hes67y5

You just have played a shit ton of games

Even if you got the games for free that’s 10 full games (600/60=10)

Since PS5 came out I think I’ve bought ratchet and clank, mlb, Yakima like a dragon, returnal, immortal fenix rising, gran turismo sport, sack boy, ac Valhalla, miles morales…

Shit maybe I should have got disc version lol

ID: hero6pz

Absolutely, I got demons souls day 1 for $50 off Kijiji and a host of other games for peanuts simply because they’re on disc.

ID: herxdx4

i got the disc edition but Id rather pay a bit more and have a digital copy of the game. The games ive purchased for the most part were not much cheaper for the disc versions but ive only bought newer games. I think I would need to save 15-20 usd before I consider a disc version

ID: herypu7

But why? Disc editions sell cheaper on release than digital if you look a little. The game disc you can refund at a store, lend to a friend, or resell, or can be used as a coaster (looking at you Cyberpunk). A digital edition is just there, on only your console, forever, and at a marked up price too.

ID: hesaspq

Yes. The sales seemed to remain artificially high year after year

ID: hescms8

I don't generally find games a ton cheaper physically, but I know that if I grab something on sale, I'll be able to sell it or trade.

I'll only buy certain digital games at launch if its a game I want to play as soon as it releases.

Usually only one diamond in the rough for these sales

Edit; didn’t even see a real diamond just looks like the same cycled sales games, can’t wait for far cry 6

ID: heqpfrw

There's alot of good games even Returnal is on sale

ID: heqvr58


ID: heqp0mn

Man used the term "Diamond" and "Far Cry 6" in the same sentence.

ID: heqpczl

Not saying far cry 6 is a diamond at all.
But man at least it something different

Is the last of us 2 worth it? Played the first one and liked it

ID: herbwwi

Some people don't like the story but everything else is absolutely brilliant.

It was an amazing experience on Ps4 and it's even better on the Ps5 with the 60 fps patch.

ID: her90xr

Yes. Story is divisive, but it's one of the best games of all time in my opinion.

ID: herfu2a

Absolutely. It's amazing.

ID: heri8ie

for €25? worth it at €70.

ID: hertyfk

Definite yes. Just finished it. Story is amazing. Gameplay is great. Graphics on PS5 are killer. My only gripe is other games look like shit compared to it when you start up your next game.

ID: hesb0rg

One of the best games ever made imo. The story was amazing. My experience playing it felt kind of like reading a really good book that stuck with me afterwards. I don't have as much time to game as I used to and I have a lot of games that I haven't finished. Had no trouble at all motivating myself to finish the Last of Us 2.

In short: great story, industry best graphics, super fun and varied gameplay, some great surprises.

ID: hersw5i

If it's really cheap then yes. Story is bad imo and nowhere near the quality of the first one, and it drags on way too long, but the gameplay is great.

Okay so... Skyrim is 65% off. I want to play the upcoming new edition on my PS5. But I can't tell what (if any) price difference there is between the current version and upcoming Anniversary Edition. If I buy it now will I get a free upgrade to a PS5 version? And is there an upgrade path to get the new Anniversary content, if I want it?

ID: her3tg6

Wait, theres another Skyrim edition in the making?

ID: herbly2

They're adding fishing!

ID: her51s0

Ok, so there are two editions.

Special edition, which will get a free upgrade to next gen. If you get special edition for ps4, you get special edition for ps5 when it releases.

Anniversary edition is the new content, which is separate and available for an upgrade price once released. You could either wait and buy this, or buy special edition now and pay to upgrade to anniversary later

ID: herblt8

Thank you!

Have they confirmed there will be an upgrade from SE to Anniversary Edition? (as opposed to having to buy it from scratch)

I have no idea what's in the creation club content so I'm waiting for reviews to see if it's worth it. I'm trying to decide if it's worth buying the SE now during the sale.

ID: hermfjv

Confirmed a pay upgrade to the Anniversary edition, which is really like saying that you get a big discount on some of the best creation club content. They're also making some upgrades for PS5 users and you will get that for free if you have the Special Edition.

Here's a recent (Aug 2021) list of mods to install and in what order to get the most out of your Skyrim experience. I went ahead and bought the SE and am diving in for the first time since release!

Note on that list, it is a pain to search for and install them but its worth it. For my first playthrough I couldn't be arsed to install them all anyway so I went with the essentials; 1-19 & 91-98.

60FPS patch is so great!

I saw sackboy on there for $31. Is it worth playing at that price?

ID: her4u8l

I enjoyed it at full price. The first few levels are a little slow and not challenging, but the game ramps up quickly and is a blast. I highly recommend it

ID: herc3al

That’s great to hear. I just bought it and the first level was stupid easy so I got a bit concerned. Glad to hear it gets more interesting!

ID: herb0wf

Super enjoyable, and if you are going for the platinum it can also be challenging.

Are the older assassin creed games 60fps on ps5?

ID: hes9mkc

I think odyssey does

8 : Anonymous2021/09/29 17:22 ID: heqv6tn

Sweet, I can pick up Black Flag for $8, no more need to pop the disc in, but I really wish they would put a 60fps patch for it. Its the only Assassins Creed I enjoy

ID: herrma1

They patched Odyssey, hopefully they start patching older Assassin Creeds.

9 : Anonymous2021/09/29 17:21 ID: heqv174

Did they fix AC: Syndicate?

Not sure why they would sell a broken game

ID: hesbhi1

Yes, it's one hell of a game, one of the best of the last gen

ID: hesbzzk

Indeed! I loved it on the PS4 but I heard that it has issues on the PS5

I was just wondering if those got fixed yet

ID: her4rl6

Not broken, and its not for sale on ps5, only on ps4.

Turns out, there are over 100 million ps4s vs under 20 million on ps5, and not everyone has a ps5 yet, so they still put games on sale for them too

ID: herc5l7

I'm not sure for consoles but I played it a few months ago on my PC and it was a smooth experience.

10 : Anonymous2021/09/29 18:19 ID: her3nbn

Anyone know how much MW is?

ID: hercb8e


ID: hercge8

Appreciate it! 😀

Lego marvel superheroes is not split screen right? And also, if I purchase, I won’t be streaming it like PlayStation now does, correct?

12 : Anonymous2021/09/29 23:44 ID: hescxz5

Picked up Little Nightmares 2. Heard good thangs. First one was dope.

13 : Anonymous2021/09/29 20:52 ID: herq49o
