Honestly, my advice to everyone is to just keep your 360 and get a PS4. Play new games on the most powerful and cheapest machine and buy up a huge backlog of current gen at rock-bottom prices while still being able to dominate BF3 with the AVS crew before BF4 releases. Best of both worlds, imo! smile.gif

If you have PSN+ it looks like they still have BF3 up for free. If your getting a PS4 it is worth it.

HK you might look into this today if you haven't gotten a copy yet. Can't remember if you said you did.

^ this

Lodol, at this point, you may as well just get the basic BF3, though premium edition may only be $20 more than basic. Yeah your stats will be reset and you need to work for unlocks again. But damn is it fun to beast people as a low level. My favorite memory of BF3 on PC is hopping in a jet map and owning the skies with zero unlocks.

not sure if it was posted already but this video just makes me think of spyder smile.gif

Yea Zath,

I know what you mean, Im not good at the game at all but knowing the maps helps. I cant wait to get BF3 for PS3 and start fresh.
post #15128 of 16243
Yeah Zath,

I ended up picking up a used vanilla BF3 copy at GameStop with a 25% off pre-played coupon. Total was $13.50 + tax. It's a shareable coupon that expires this weekend so if anyone is interested in saving 25% on a used game, send me a PM with your email. Its useable up to 5 times. I already sent hk a copy of the coupon.

Good thing now about EA and used games is no need for an online pass.

Thank you sir!

So much has gone on lately. I've been a bit disconnected lately. Work and family has been keeping me very busy and tired. My wife went back to work and I've had my 4 month old every night and he's still waking up often to eat. Hopefully, I can get back on Saturday night. I got on this past Tuesday, but no one was on so I played Batman for a few hours.

Yeah, I avoid the XB1 thread. The fanboy is strong in them. They are too serious about a box from a group of people that don't care if they drop dead. most of the execs at M$ wouldn't piss on us if we were on fire, but they defend that system like they handcrafted it. I think some of those guys would let the M$ execs do unspeakable things to their wives and girlfriends (and some even to their sons) due to their undying allegiance to M$. The saddest part, these are all grown men, and they are probably fairly successful (money-wise) since they are on a website that caters to people who spend money on expensive electronics.

I've about completely moved to PS3. I've played all the 360 games I care to and have zero to look forward to until my PS4 arrives. The only current gen game I plan on getting in the future is Dark Souls 2 and that will not be a 360 game for me.

I may be ditching my 360 this weekend altogether, not sure. Literally the only game I will have for it is BF3 if I bother to keep it (not counting digital). But the 360 is my biggest trading asset. I'm eyeballing a Vita and Move since both roll forward. I also have a large cache of DVDs that are going so if I have enough without the 360 I may hang it back. Fortunately I have a local game trade shop so I'm not tied to Gamestop only.

My Live expires in like 45 days and a few days before the beta. So that's not helping and I have zero desire to extend Live even by a month. The only reason I fired my 360 up since last week was to flip Spyders profile off and I could have done that via mobile or PC...

Have not bothered with the xbone thread. Once I'm set, I'm set, don't care about the other side. Sounds like its the McDonald's/Walmart/COD type crowd though.

Those of you ditching Live, make sure you disable auto renewal!
post #15133 of 16243
Im pretty sure I have it off but will check later. Good thinking Hapi.

Definitely double check your double check. When I first got on Live I was monthly as a trial. Couple years went by before I remembered that and to switch to yearly. I'm 99.9% certain I turned auto off then. My last renewal was a eBay card, a year after I disabled auto mind you. I just checked my auto update settings last week and the gd thing was back on. Not sure if they toggled it on for my convenience or what. Another good thing is my credit card expired so that should stop it too.

Yep. I always give sites I'm uncertain about or that have auto-renewal a prepaid credit card that I get from a rebate from buying something from newegg or tigerdirect. Even then, if it's a $20 card, I go somewhere, charge off $19.99 and leave one single cent on it. Also good for if identity thieves want my info...enjoy your penny, scumbag! biggrin.gif

Just picked up BF3 for PS3. Also preordered BF4 for PS3 just for the air unlock code for BF3. Dont need it though. GS has buy one get one free used games on now until 18th. Only on selected games tho. BF3 was not on the list.
post #15137 of 16243
Nex, they did the same to me. That's why I ditched MS and Live. Loyalty ment nothing. I didn't ditch Live to jump on PSN. I just kinda happened. It was tough too cause I felt as if I was ditching a lot of friends on Live.

Also, expired credit cards are life savers.
post #15138 of 16243
Hk, did the coupon work out?

Yea if you've followed my move to PS its been an epic battle of my will against change. I've had my PS3 for years but haven't played but a half dozen games or so on it.

Found out I only have August left on Live, cannot delete my credit card without a phone call eff you very much Microsoft, and my system is wiped and about to be loaded out for trade. Nothing against Microsoft personally but sayonara.
post #15140 of 16243
Hey guys whats been going on? I keep an eye on the threads but I haven't really played my xbox since October. We have just relocated to SoCal and the whole process took awhile and I was travelling a lot before our move. I guess I may need to change my GT to HooiserInCA now.

So I just got internet again last week and the BF4 trailers look sick. Any word on the Beta? Anyone still play BF3 on the xbox? Seems like a lot are jumping ship to the PS4. I have pre-ordered the XBONE, wondering if anyone is staying around?
post #15141 of 16243
Yes, the coupon worked. I ended up paying $12 for it. Thanks,

After having my account hacked a while back and my credit card stolen, I replaced it with a pre-paid card that had a zero balance on it and then was able to delete my real card. Whenever I need to charge something to Xbox, I just enter the info for a new card, charge whatever I need, switch the primary acct back to the useless card and delete the info again. It's kind of a pain in the a$$ but it keeps my info safe. the Xbox Live Family acct forces you to keep a card on file but it does not say it has to be a good card.wink.gif

Welcome back Hoosier! Lots still playing, but not as regular as before. Everyone is either bailing for PS4 land or selling their 360's to get money for the next gen Xbox. I'm planning on an XBONE but have been looking at a PC build too. Lots of people are still planning on XBones, just ask Spyder. He is the leader for the ANTI PS4 organization.biggrin.gif
post #15144 of 16243
Its official, my 360 is gone! Traded for a stack of blurays, a Vita, Move, and a 320 GB PS3 so I can swap out the broken one in our bedroom and keep the wifey happy. Got about $650 all told with a few hundred DVDs traded in as well.

It has been a huge pleasure gaming with everyone and those xboners will be missed on the next gen. Whoever is moving to PS land, I will see you on the Battlefield! biggrin.gif

Lol. I wouldn't call 4 AVSers "lots." wink.gif

Besides, wherever Nexus, the C4 master goes, so go I. Always good to never have to worry about other tanks killing mine. smile.gif

Now, if we can just get Lazy to donate a PS4 to Zath, we've got both air and ground covered and I can walk around in my clown suit all day without getting killed...by vehicles. biggrin.gif

Wow. How much did you get per DVD? eek.gif I got rid of everything (that was available on BD) so long ago, I can't recall how much we got for each. redface.gif

I can't believe this. My ps3 60gb is flashing red light. Damn!!
post #15149 of 16243
you mean yellow light as in YLOD? nice

I was going to suggest for those of you with expiring Live accounts to search cheapassgamer for the procedure to get the 1 month for $1 promotion. That way you can play the beta and whatnot, probably getting a free game or two as well. Then I saw Nexus is already gone! Now we can't launch any blueberry astronauts!

For 193 DVDs I got just shy of $250. Another $180 for my 360 with the 9 games I had left. All told was $430 cash or $642 store credit. I took the credit and racked up. Add another $20 store credit to GS for my Kinect.

What sucks is that all the stuff I traded probably cost me a few grand in the past. In today's day of digital everything its nearly pointless to own much anymore. Which prompted the flush of my collection.
