Mario World-esque linear 3D platformer from Little Big Planet.

  • Glad my backlog held me back before, good price :)

  • Damn this game is taking its sweet time getting cheap… Same with Ratchet and Clank. I will continue being patient though.

      I was never gonna buy a PS5 because there's little reason with almost everything available on PS4 and having had a Pro to power them. Exclusives have been slow and remain few, hardly justifying the gen upgrade unless you are a die-hard fan of a particularly series or game.

      But I bought my PS5 in March, because it looked clear that new gen prices were here to stay for a long time and the wait for softening prices looks indefinite.

      The best approach is buying as cheaply as possible (often only ~$10-20 less than regular prices) and reselling. I've about broken even, with a few select cases of profiting, from this approach.

      All that is to say - don't let these prices stop you from stepping up to new gen.

      • I got the PS5 day 1 and have had some good luck on getting a few titles for cheap so far, so I don't feel like I am missing out on much. Just a few titles like this and Ratchet and Clank which just don't seem like they are worth more than $30, so I am holding out for them to get cheap, but they are just taking forever. Seeing posts like this just makes me think that they will stay expensive for a long time. $66 is only slightly cheaper than I would expect to pay for a brand new title, whereas this is a launch game that is considered a bargain at this price.

        • R&C is definitely a fairly short title, but has a good new game+ approach. But it's an amazingly produced game and purely fun adventure game. It's worth full RRP. Personally, I bought for $70 and resold for $90 (a lot of resale are ~$70-80).

          Sackboy does not match in quality, but delivers for any fan of platformers. It's maybe short to medium in length but a lot there for completionists. I bought for $60, yet to resell but expecting to get about the $60 back…

          • @miracle: Yeah I would consider the purchase and re-sell route, but I also like to keep my games and bask at a shelf of beauty, so the two just aren't compatible. I think I will just have to sit and wait for a good deal or hope for something good on Gumtree/Marketplace. I managed to score RE8 on PS5 for $50 a few weeks after launch which was insanely cheap at the time and probably still is.

          • @miracle: How’s you manage to get R&C for $70? Was that brand new?

              @sween64: Second-hand. On Gumtree not too long after release
