PS4 white destiny bundle ruling as the sole king on most charts, adding to situation, the depressing launch on "tier" 2/3 countries, MS is rdy to open the wallets this one time for new potential customers.

I have to ask you two questions TC. Do you feel better now? Are you a Sony shareholder?

Not taking Gamefaqs seriously since 2004. Gamefaqs mods are a joke.

I do, I just ate one helluva good burger. No, but I have shares in MSFT, so I would get more winnings if they shut down the Xbox division and focused all that resource on more software development :)

Otherwise known as a "game pack-in".

This desperation move has been used since Alex Kidd in Miracle World and Duck Hunt.

M$ getting desperate is good for customers though. $399 for console and 2 games, can't argue with that it's a great deal.

Too bad that in the long run, the ps4 is still a much better purchase. People buy consoles for the long run usually.

If having a sale is desperate than how desperate is steam? Imo whats honestly desperate is giving away free games which sony started with psplus.

I would agree with you, but if you look at which SKU's are valid with the promo it includes two game pack-in units.

Though I still wouldn't call it a desperation move either.
