I'm so glad I don't shop at Gamestop. Their upgrade credit works like this:

You buy a new game within 30 days or release for 360. (you're a powerup rewards member too)
Before December 31, 2013 you go back with that game and trade it in for the 180 version.
AFTER that transaction they send you a $50 trade in credit coupon via email.

I'm assuming you get nothing for trading the game in when you buy the 180 version and you're going to pay full price a 2nd time for the "same" game. Then you get a $50 coupon that has to be spent by december 31.

It's possible you get the normal trade in credit plus another $50 credit but I doubt it. It's possible you could buy one of these games for 360 on sale on black friday, trade it in and end up getting the 180 version, free...ish.

It's going to end up costing you the same amoutn if you just sell the game yourself on amazon and then go buy the version you want. Possibly buying used would help a bit but I would count on the online code features to be far worse on 180 than they are on 360 despite the turn around MS is talking about and EA saying they aren't going to use online passes anymore.

The 180 was designed to fuck consumers over, they can talk about change but that thing was born to fuck and it's going to get laid eventually.

I don't think they should be putting Major Nelson in front of a Camera...he comes off pretty douche.

My favorite part was when he was getting to the xbox, "And then we have the beautiful console, all wrapped up, waiting for you"...it looks like it's wrapped in a trash bag and it could not be more generic and boring in appearance. I think the Wii U console might give it a run for it's money for least interesting electronic device you own.

I'm surprised Nintendo is still taking a loss on the WiiU. It just doesn't strike me as being all that expensive to manufacture given the relative size and simplicity of the components. That pad must cost more than I give it credit for.

It probably has a lot to do with total order size. They can't go make enormous amounts of them because they know they won't sell. Ideally sales of your console will grow each month but the Wii U is going the opposite direction. That drives costs up when you have to cut your total orders down all the time. This month we need you to make 300,000. Ok now we need 200,000. They probably could make a profit if they could build enough of them but demand isn't there. You'd be building them just to have them sit in a warehouse.

Heh, the $13.37 credit seems a little stupid. Free money is free money but I think 1337 stopped being cool a while back. Now those guys are a fuckheads you want to mute on xbox live.

Heh, I looked at their website and they do have a lot of games that use "with friends". One is called hanging with friends. Wonder if this is a competition thing.

News Comments > BioShock Infinite DLC Today & Rapture DLC Planned
12. Re: BioShock Infinite DLC Today & Rapture DLC Planned Jul 30, 2013, 13:05 Tumbler
 
Kind of exciting to see the DLC they have planned. The rapture adventure seems like a perfect fit. I think putting it in a different setting is really smart. If it connects to the original story, fine, if not I still think it could be cool to have a whole seperate adventure with different characters. Alternate reality.

The whole Season Pass plus 2 part dlc and the first of the 3 parts being a mini game of sorts...I'm glad I don't purchase season passes. The one I've bought that I liked was the Borderlands 2 season pass. That one ended up costing me $60 for hte game and pass because of sales so the whole experience feels worth it in the end.

I feel like season passes basically insure the developer/publishers can half ass the content. Make one good thing then make a few other minor things just to say you made multiple items.

I have more faith that kickstarter projects will be a good return on my money than I do season passes.

News Comments > Fez II Cancelled
51. Re: Fez II Cancelled Jul 28, 2013, 22:57 Tumbler
 
Can't seem to find anyone I like in this whole story. So invisible walls was sticking up for Game Informer who asked Fish and Blow a few questions regarding xbox's change of policy recently. Fish and Blow didn't think that was worth their time and Marcus starts calling them names.

Bleh, I don't like anyone here. Invisible walls is a game informer esque podcast/vidcast, game informer will be the last people to give a shit about indies, Marcus is a person on invisible walls and is an annoying little bitch, Phil Fish is an annoying little bitch and Johnathon blow ...I still have no real opinion of him. I hope he makes more games. Everyone else can leave the game industry and I'll be just fine.

News Comments > Activision Blizzard Buys Back Stock
27. Re: Activision Blizzard Buys Back Stock Jul 26, 2013, 15:10 Tumbler
 
Meh, I'm feeling like this change is kind of a wash. It's possible vivendi was heavy handed in how they dealt with Acti Bliz but I've never heard that if so.

I've no idea if not having Vivendi there will make things better or worse. I think Vivendi is wise to cash out at this point simply because there is no guarantee that Acti Blizz franchises will continue to be as popular on nex gen systems. It's a "safe bet" Cod will do ok for the first few years just like Halo did on 360 but with so many new franchises and new types of games being tried I couldn't be surprised if their games don't do as well. I'd say they are in danger of not being innovative right now and sticking with the COD formula will look obsolete very quickly if games like Destiny and The Bureau (not the xcom one) end up delivering the experience people hope they will.

I think they launched way too early. I don't remember seeing anything but concept art. Some of it looked good but if you want to get something like that funded you have to show something that makes your vision of the game clear. Gameplay in most cases. Some kickstarters have been successful just talking about ideas but I don't think this idea is good enough to stand on that.

$10...I know that isn't a lot but I can buy so much more for $10 than this offers. For just a few dollars more I can buy Rogue Legacy which I hear is fucking amazing. I'm so damn cheap I want to wait till Rogue Legacy is on sale, so good lucky selling this DLC guys.

I don't think you can count either set of pre orders as firm numbers because if you want the option to have either you had to preorder. I have an xbone on preorder just incase. It's likely getting canceled. I also have two ps4's on preorder. Canceling at least one of those, maybe everything. As much as getting one of these would be fun I can't think of a game I must have been this point.

In other words, because games have to be submitted to Microsoft testing, certified, and then pressed onto discs and shipped, Forza 5 has to be done much, much sooner than November. By requiring part of the game as a download on launch day, it gives Turn 10 extra time to finish everything. And so what you get on the disc you buy at the store won’t be the entire game.

So MS is going to certify a non working game...? What is the point of Cert?! It's incomplete, it doesn't work, ship it! It will work later, promise!

If a dev wants to ship a game with one time internet activation required plus download the rest of the game MS should require them to submit the whole thing for cert. No extra time to work on that last part, either it's ready for show time or it's not.

This also sounds suspiciously like a way to limit sharing...so content will be downloaded anonomously? Someone can rent it, connect, download the stuff they need and play? That's hard to believe, bandwidth isn't free so who's going to pay for the 15th content download for a particular copy of the game.

I have to assume they are pressing discs with unique id's this gen. Shipping every game with a unique printed code seems like a losing strategy for the console audience. It's a hassle sitting there and typing that shit in...plus you have a camera and you're supposed to recognizing speech. With Unique codes on every disc you could adopt more limiting features later as well. I have to assume MS wants to throw the switch at some point this gen and make all new games be one time connection required if not more.

I think we've officially passed the point where MS would have highlighted better features if they had any. Everything they seem to be doing is in line with that ridiculous system they pitched at E3 and before.

The big feature was Xbox + TV. I feel like the fans created the steam like features in their imagination otherwise we'd have seen microsoft expand on those. When you see a feature people are excited about why not spend more time explaining that instead of going back to stupid bullshit like Surface or the cloud.

This thing is screaming major redesign within the next year. Buying this at $500 would be the biggest gift anyone's every done for MS. Edit....maybe not as big as buying a Surface tablet...but it's damn close.
