That's just it. But the same for XSX as well.

I'm not paying full fucking price for shit 2 years old lol.
I saw Costco had a pallet of series X's... For full price.
I mean maybe if they were $499 with a free game I'd have grabbed one, same for PS5. But I'm actually quite happy with my one X and aging gaming PC.

CAN YOU IMAGINE PAYING FULL PRICE FOR AN XBOX IN 2003? 2 years after launch?
Of course you can't imagine it, because its fucking stupid to pay $749 for a 2 year old system.
No. You'd pay $449 and get a few games like Halo, Sega GT and Jet Set Radio Future for your $450.

If Sony bundled.... Um the last of us's 4th remake, and Horizon... And no that's all the games they have for $499 I'd pick one up.
Same for Microsoft, Forza Horizon 5 and a halo game for half a grand. I'm in.

Hey guys I just bought this Dreamcast from 1999 for $499. Ignore the fact that it's July 2001 and it's only worth $199 at most.

Considering how much people were paying for PC parts up until recently, the XSX/PS5 at RRP is still good value.

Spider-man Remastered (Steam)

Got it from GMG using a discount and thought $79 was a bargain compared to what Steam was charging. Now I see this... https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/718375

That's weird.

They are both good bundles, especially the Resident Evil one.

Rare Replay digital edition (Xbox)
Hitman Absolution (Steam)
Need for Speed Payback Deluxe Edition (Steam)
Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition (Steam)
Alwa's Awakening (Steam)
Alwa's Legacy (Steam)

Used a gift card bought with MS Rewards to get Rare Replay and the Steam games where bought with money from selling Steam cards. Cha-ching!

I already own Fallout 3 a bunch but the GOTY is easier to mod.

We need to know... What's your game of the Month Zoidberg?

You own every game, what are you playing the most and enjoying right now?

Or have you become a collector more than a gamer (that's not an insult, I too have done it a lot in the past where I spent way more time trying to find games, and building collections and restoring consoles and comparing games than actually playing things)

Rare Replay digital edition (Xbox) sure I have the disc but £4.99 i the sale aint bad for Goldeneye when it hits, also I happened to have 4.99 sitting on my Xbox for the past few years doing nothing so it worked out pretty good

These are the best games I've played over the past month or two:

Vampire Survivors
20 Minutes Till Dawn
Aggelos
Football Manager 2022

The first two games are auto shooters, although in 20 Minutes you do have to shoot.

Aggelos is a Wonderboy Dragon's Trap/Monster World style of game. Good fun.

FM22 was free with Amazon Prime via Epic. It's good but pretty much the same as every other year. The usual minor improvements and additions.
