Re: PlayStation Plus Deals for January 1st, 2013

Dec 28, 2012
I joined and got Back to the Future ($20). I got Walking Dead 1&2 then had to pay $15 for the rest. Saved $5. There's nothing else I would have bought on my own offered the past year - BUT, I was able to resell my son's Little Big Planet and Ratchet and Clank for $20. So I spent $50 and received $45 in games my family plays and a bunch of throw away games I don't really care about. Essentially I have a $50 subscription for my son to play LBP and R&C. January is my renew, if they can't do better than an NBA game it looks like I'm going back to the store to get the boy his games back.

ok lets see this-- we get ep 1 and 2 for free-- so lets say its 5$ an episode -- that means the next 3 will cost 15$
now sux-box gets 50% off all of them -- 5x2.50 = 12.50 -- are we really debateing 2.50??

no, XBL got Ep 1 for FREE, so essentially they have to pay for only episodes 2-5 (4x$2.50=$10).

 

Practically 50% off, which PSN users should expect to see.

 

*Correction* It is not practically 50% it IS 50% off. $2.50 instead of $5 per chapter, so $12.50 for $25 is what it costs PER chapter, but buying the Season Pass for $20 gives PS+ users $10 Season Pass.

Technically they didnt get it for free, they have to pay for Xbox live. I complain too but this is just ridiculous ^

Incorrect, you don't have to pay for Xbox live (Gold) to get Episode 1 for free, or get the rest for 50% off. Sometimes XBL Gold subscribers get additional discounts, but not to the same frequency as PS+ subscribers...

Does it really matter? They had to wait an extra 3 months to get these on sale. I think we got a pretty good deal

Yes you need a XBL subscription, but the basic subscription is free just like a PSN account. 

 

A paid XBL (Gold) account basically gives:

*Online gameplay & chat support

*Cloud storage

*Access to Xbox apps

I just tried it again and got it to work. I forgot to change the year on my PlayStation. After doing that, I got it to work and I'm kinda disappointed. I wonder what will be the discounted games for the Vita.

It annoys me that EU got Bulletstorm and Deus Ex free, yet all we get is a discount for them.
