[PC] Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order $49 @ JB Hi-Fi

1770

First deal post so please don't smoke me.

Went to grab Jedi: Fallen Order at my local JB today, scanned up at $49 instead of $69 as a promotion. Not sure if this is across all but it is the cheapest I have seen.

    Xbox too?

      Not certain, I only purchased this I'm afraid. It may show up on the website?

        PCs probably better?

        •  

          PC's definitely better. There have been a lot of complaints about the way it runs on a standard XBox One (i.e. non-X) with slow loading times, textures not loading and framerate drops.

          There have also been complaints about buggy running on PS4 and PC, but less-so. I've played through on PC and had essentially no problems apart from textures taking a few seconds to load occasionally when I first start the game, after that there are pretty much no loading screens and I haven't noticed the framerate drop below 60 (Ryzen 1600X, GTX 1080, 8GB RAM).

    Amazing game. Just a fairly short game so I personally used the origin access option for 20 bucks and cancelled after a month. Would be great deal if game had replayability.

      I tossed up doing this, but in the end decided to buy it so I can put it down and come back to it later

      Define short, i googled and some sites say 25 hours, thats pretty decent?

        Depends on the setting (you can choose how hard enemies etc are). Took me around 3 days (finished every small aspect of the game) but all up probably ~16hours of play time. Which is really short for a game like this - I can't imagine finishing every small element of Zelda BOTW or Witcher 3 (the best games in recent memory)

          I don't think you should compare a linear game to those open world games.

        •  

          Thanks uwu. I didnt neg you btw, however i do think comparing this sort of liner action game VS large open world rpg's isnt a good comparison. Its like comparing gta 5 to the first super mario.

          However, as i get older and get less time for gaming (maybe 3 hours some week) i am appreciating the short and sweet games, as i can actually finish them, and remember the story in between sessions. The only time i can really play the long rpg's are public holiday long weekends or christmas break when i actually have a few weeks off to sit and game, and even then i cant!

          I consider anything over 10-hours to be a solid length for a linear/narrative game.

          Playtime is overrated. I’d prefer a tight, constantly-fresh 10 hour experience to a 50 hour JRPG grind-fest.

    Also playable through Origin Access Premier for $19.99/month. I have no interest in ever replaying this game so a one month sub made more sense to me than buying it outright.

    Great price. Possible price match at EB games? Maybe even Amazon?

    I can't even find the PC version of this game on their website.

    •  

      Neither, the aim was to price match with Harvey Norman for $69 but they had it cheaper!

    •  

      Yeah i didnt see it online either but i went in stores and they had it behind the counter. Not on shelf either. Could it be because it was a digital copy and high risk of thief? Considering it has nothing inside but a piece of paper lol

    It's so cool that the geniuses at EA came up with this amazing innovation of selling a game without microtransactions. It makes the game so much better! They are amazing.

    This unlocks via Origin correct? Not steam?
