Upcoming PS4 exclusives God of War, Detroit and Spider-Man currently unavailable to pre-order from Amazon

Not the first time this has happened on Amazon, my guess is the allocation of launch day copies has been pre purchased and they've done it while they await details on the next batch of copies or as others have said a wrong button has been pressed.

To be honest the novelty of having flagship phones etc wore off for me quite quickly. I tend to buy modest handsets and replace them when they start to look a bit battered or go wrong. I don't like being tied to contacts that much.

I had fun with it last year when it came out. Still think it's the weakest entry in the series though. Plenty of fun and hopefully the improvements will help it appeal to a few more people.

I tried but just couldn't get into this installment. I wasn't a disaster of epic proportions as some people think it is. It was just a product of a troubled development cycle. The multiplayer component EA are obsessed with adding to their products really wasn't needed here either.

Night Trap - 25th Anniversary Edition to haunt PS4 and PC players in August

@brigadier

I could actually be the cost/terms of licensing that dictates how many copies they can produce. Unless the company actually owns night trap.

I know with some home media companies they can only produce limited print runs of some dvds/blu rays because of the cost of licensing or the terms of the license.

When their premium fightsticks came out in time for SF4 I couldn't wait to get one. I hadn't touched their products since the N64 days. I've not long bought a SFV fightstick and think it's a quality bit of kit. I really hope another manufacturer picks up the fightstick baton.

It would perhaps depend on the agreement they enterted into with Sony. I wouldn't hold my breath for a game Sony had a hand in appearing on Xbox or Nintendo systems, certainlly not anytime soon anyway.

That mode looks truly awful and Chris looks thourghly miserable playing it.

Given that sony part funded the development would capcom be allowed to rip assests from SFV to use on another console? Unless I've misunderstood Sonys role in the development of SFV.

He sought legal advice and acted upon it. Why some people are so entitled it's beyond me and the comments aimed at the guy are unfair and out of order. How on earth could he have leaked the contents of the disc anonymously after proving ownership of the disc anyway.

He didn't really have any other course of action given that blizzard were saying it was stolen so obviously did the right thing. Returning stolen goods and being rewarded for it seems fair.

Nintendo discontinues NES Mini in Europe, too

thor_hammer

1 year ago

@FASELI

I didn't paper over anything. I was going on what I'd been told by people who worked in the very shops their staff pillaged for stock.

There were a couple of unclaimed preordered minis in the wild near me as there were Switches and PSVR units. They didn't last very long though.

At the end of the day they can pay and charge what they like, my comment was and still is aimed at the practice of buying new stock with the purpose of selling at a mark up. A practice that I was informed was carried out by the branches local to me by people who work on the highstreers and shops where it has taken place.

The switch in the CEX window near me is 320 without a dock or anything else. As I said I can only speak for the stores in my area.

Perhaps it's a supply and demand thing I don't know.

They paid 50 for the ones their staff bought from the shops stocking them on release and I think about 35 or so for the used ones they've taken in.

Did the same thing with the switch and PSVR.

This was the branches local to me anyway. Sorry if it doesn't quite fit your idea of scalping but it's a shady practice in my opinion whatever you wish to dress it up as.

Global superstar Kjellberg? Until all the controversy I'd honestly never heard of the guy. Now I think about it most of the 'superstars' of youtube I've heard of has been because of bad press reported by the likes of this site.

I think he's probably jumped platform because he's hoping for a new start and the bigger advertisers on youtube won't touch him at the moment.

I watched a couple of minutes of the vid here and found him irritating and obnoxious.
