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.

Any one game for free, MS wants you to have that media box in your house NOW!

So whom´s getting the bone? Or is it still glacier white PS4 with Destiny?

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.
