Honestly, most games don't take long to have a price drop. 6-12 months and they're down by 30-50% -- especially on big days like Black Friday. Here's the thing. If you're working to snag a PS4... enjoy the PS4. It's a better library and 95% of modern releases are also on PS4. Unless you're wanting very specific games exclusive to PS5, which there aren't many, just wait for PS6 and see if it'll be PS5/4 backwards compatible. Maybe by then, the PS5 will have a library worth owning a system for.

Not gonna lie to you, I want as well a PS3, have been reading a lot these past months and it seems that isnt that hard to release the true power of this console, for what have seen they aren that expensive anymore, might get one here if I manage to get one used in a Pawn Shop, thats how I got a Wii, a DSi, a PS Vita as well a 3DS, its kinda hard to get as many consoles/games when you are married and you are the only one that works at home, I said hard but not impossible  8)

Telekill is right about the PS5. I have one, it's a nice system...but there isn't really anything must have about it yet. Most games are still on PS4.

If you are thinking about a PS3...I'd say do it. It's a great system (I just bought another yesterday...I found one and was like...why the heck not), and I personally think PS3's and 360's are only going to rise in value. It was the last gen you could really just plug in and play with out relying on the internet.

As it's a subscription "freebie" I'm not adding it to my collection, but hey... saves me $70.

Excuse me but since when the games started to cost 70 bucks ?  :o

XB1 X and PS5 games started to retail for $70.

Personally, I won't add any freebies from PS+ anymore. Since they raised the price of that to $80 a year I'm just letting it die when my sub ends. I don't like playing online much anyway, and cloud storage has been hit or miss.

Modern Video Games / Re: Where do you draw the line? New Game Prices

I don’t seriously believe that R* is going to try to charge $150 for GTA 6, unless it is a version that includes all the future DLC. Then, it might happen.  They may do a $150 collectors edition. I could see that happening.
Rockstar does like to have different levels of releases. Deluxe editions, Super Deluxe editions, Super Mega Deluxe editions and the like.

Here’s my best prediction:
$80 Base Game
$90 Deluxe Edition including Base Game + Season 1 Pass + some exclusive item you can only get by buying this edition
$100 Super Mega Deluxe Edition with the Deluxe Edition and some online game money

That’s my best guess. We’ll see how it goes.

As for new game prices?  They don’t bother me much. I don’t buy many brand new games.

It's rockstar. More like


I won't pay these new prices. If you got a complete game...maybe. But now you are nickle and dimed to death with DLC (I like having all the content), So I'll wait for a minimum of a 50% off sale.

NCAA 2005/Top Spin. these are exactly the same.


PS5: I struggle to even call myself a PS5 collector since I know full well its physical games are more or less glorified CD keys. I don't think there is any future in collecting for the PS5 since I know these games will have no longevity in a decade or so from now when Sony pulls the plug on its servers. Nearly every PS5 game I've played requires at least half the game be downloaded, if not way, way more than that. And I've never been able to have more than a dozen or so games downloaded onto my PS5 at a time given how much space they take up and also there being no way to update the HDD in them. If not for the games being petty fun, this would be a straight up F Tier console in terms of collecting for me.

I often hear this argument being tossed around. My question to those who espouse this - couldn't the same logic be applied also to PS4 and even PS3 games, since there are quite some games even from that time period that saw updates and patches not included on the game disc? When Sony shuts down the server for those legacy platforms, and you can't get the patches directly from them, is there no point in collecting those either? I think the downloads included with many disc games are just a prioritized method of getting the latest version, when you have an Internet connection. Not that there isn't any version on the disc.

I acknowledge that it can be worse now when developers release a beta on disc and then patch it day one, but that's usually the exception and not the rule. It mostly applies to rushed triple A games, which is far from being every PS5 physical release. Sometimes there are definitive edition physical releases, if the game is a big enough success, but there's also a lot of smaller release and indie titles which are complete on the disc. I think too much is made of the issue. SomeOrdinaryGamers once did a video demonstrating that yes, you can in fact install and play games like Demon Souls remake and others without any Internet connection at all to his PS5. So there certainly is something on the disc with the physical games, more so than the hearsay is leading people to believe. Sometimes EA or Ubisoft will pull some crap in pursuit of their bottom lines, and screw the consumer of a complete or accessible product. But it's not a reason to write of PS5 collecting enitrely, IMO.

Well, for the PS3 the patches were usually pretty minimal. While there may be a couple games that rely on the patch to be fully functional (Usually DLC), Nearly everything is playable on the ps3 without any patches downloaded. Back then, the game was expected to be released completely functional and ready to go.

At the same time, I'd also like to play through more PlayStation VR games. I still have everything hooked up after having not played any for it in a few months, so hopefully that's enough of a motivator.[/font]

I treated myself to a PS4 VR a couple years ago, and I've never set it up. I keep buying VR games on sale too, lol.

I played a few things on mine - Astro Bot, Beat Saber, the Until Dawn rail shooter, Tetris Effect.  I liked pretty much everything I tried on it, but it has been packed away ever since they made it clear that it wasn't going to be PS5 compatible and I switched out my set-up from PS4 to PS5.

I basically have an old PS4 that I have dedicated to VR. I just haven't played it. I have it as a separate set up.

Gaming wise? Try to limit my purchases to stuff off my wish list (Though I can't turn down a dollar game at a thrift store, lol). I don't plan to buy any "new" games in 2024, and would like to work on my massive backlog.

everyone who is moral and good is getting shutdown, while the bad people are winning, I am also working my ass off to save whatever I can from people who sue just to create more bad things to do more bad things to good people, JN is to blame for everything, and I put up with her for life in prison.

PH Judy Neideffer and her real Facebook profile is currently invisible, ever wonder why we still hear B52's sometimes over our heads sometimes when there is no airplanes in the skylines?

Something must be wrong (again). I hear Rock Lobster above my head, not the plane.

 The FBI knows I own a refurbished working OG Original Xbox that can play DVDS with that adopter That came with the sale. So maybe they figure I don't need to play all my OG games. On 360 due to fail-safe

This is 100% it.

I blame Reagan for what we have to endure here.

Who knew Atari 2600 has regained so much value? It's one of the more valuable libraries out there now. Neck and neck with GameCube.

I'm old enough to remember the video game crash in the mid 80's. As a poor kid, it was great. You could walk into any drug store or grocery store (Part of the problem in the end lol) and they would have tables of new/sealed games for $1-2 each. Like...hundreds of games to comb through. I would walk down to the store every sat with my allowance and get a new game or two.

« on: September 11, 2023, 07:26:44 pm »
I'm not bothered at all by them. I have a bunch on PS3 (I actually kinda like the red cases- the EU ones are pretty ugly though) and Xbox 360. As long as the game works, I'm good. If I find an original print cheap enough I'll add it as well. I don't mind have an extra if it's a variation.

I don't remember my parents ever forbidding me from watching/reading anything.
The advantages of being born in a family of Socialist Atheists I guess? Haha

Pretty much the same here. There were a couple movies I wasn't allowed to watch until I was older (When I was 7-8 I couldn't watch certain movies like Cat People or Risky Business, but by the time I was 13 it was fine, lol) Actually, those are the only 2 I recall being told I had to wait on (Themes were incest and prostitution)
