Not sure. Was there an estimated restocking date when your purchased it?


I did something I never do with Amazon: I emailed them and asked when it would be back in stock. They said they don't know...so they issued a $28 credit to my account so I can order it from a third-party seller for the same price. Holy moly!

Better yet: it's on sale for $30 this week on PSN.

Seems like a lot of good prices on the mid-year sale for PS3 and PS4.

No. I'm receptive to a care package if you'd like. Include beer and/or whisky.

It's physical, too. I saw it at WalMart. Maker's Mark or Johnny Walker Black will do. Thanks.

Flash Sale just went up on PS4 store, games are all under $10. Not a ton of enticing options, but there are a handful (like Titanfall 2 for $6, Bastion for a few bucks, a few more).

Yup. What's the next best new IP? I can't think of anything.

I think I'm going to buy the HZD (I have a $100 PSN gift card) and try to sell the physical copy I have; I haven't even played it yet, and I think I only paid $18 for it...should be able to recoup that.

I'm doing the same thing with Lost Legacy. Do it quite a bit for digital copies of games once they get low enough in price. Really hoping the PS5 is backwards compatible.

For digital games? Is that something people are anticipating?
