yeah, i'd totally buy some of the stuff on sale right now were it not for the facts that:

1. I'm about to leave town for a week
2. I don't have a job yet
3. I just bought Battlefield V and any gaming hours I can justify when I get back will likely be spent there

Whoa, also Star Wars Bf2 for $10, Prey and Wolfenstein 2 both for $20.

Is the Star Wars game worth $10? How's the single player? How's the multi player base at this point?

I think Battlefront 2 is great. The progression system is still a bit of a chore, but much improved from the initial release. Base is still pretty strong.

I agree that it is a pretty great game despite all the bad publicity with EA's pay-to-win progression system. It was certainly annoying but it didn't ruin the game by any stretch. It's totally worth $10.

The core gameplay is solid and a lower level player can still hang if they are skilled enough.

FYI Best Buy is gonna have better prices on the physical versions of a lot of these. Odyssey will be $30 and Detroit will be $20, I believe.

I need to look at all the deals and evaluate. I still have the Gamers Unlocked BB thing, which gives an additional 20 percent off. I'm strongly considering picking up Odyssey.

Oh yeah that’s a no brainer then. Wish I would have reupped mine before they discontinued it.

Mine goes until October of next year. Good thing too because Prime doesn't do the 20 percent off thing anymore.

Amazon is selling XCom 2 Collection for $15. Great price for a great game. Only pull the trigger if you're looking for a deep dive though, there's no way to play Xcom casually.

Looks like it's already sold out?

I already have that via PS+ (the base game, at least), just haven't gotten the chance to play it yet. Played through 99% of XCOM Enemy Unknown and loved it, but got to the final boss and felt like it was umbeatable because I hadn't spent 3 weeks building my team in a very specific way. Kind of annoying. Still lots of fun.

The PS4 Deals subreddit is trying to put together a spreadsheet comparing what each retailer is discounting games for, if it's helpful: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... w?sle=true

:thumbsup: Thanks for the heads up, mine is just about to expire. Any idea when the Black Friday deal runs out? I'd prefer to wait until this weekend to pull the trigger.

I would assume it goes until the 27th when the other Black Friday deals are over.
