Get a PS4 + Watch Dogs for $410 at GameStop

Special deal is good through July 27.

Retailer GameStop is currently hosting a special deal for PlayStation shoppers. If you buy a standard PlayStation 4 system, you can get a copy of Ubisoft's open-world game Watch Dogs for $9.99, meaning you can pick up a system and the game for a grand total of $410. Normally, you'd pay $460 for a system and the game.

The deal is valid through July 27. You'll need to add both the PS4 and Watch Dogs to your cart to see the $50 markdown. This is a PlayStation-only deal right now, as adding a $399 Xbox One and a copy of Watch Dogs to your cart on GameStop still rings you up for the standard price.

In other PS4 deals news, Dell is currently offering a pretty excellent deal where you can get a system, three months of PlayStation Plus, a copy of Infamous: Second Son or MLB 14: The Show, and a $100 Dell gift card for $450.

Strange, this deal is not listed on their website ? I added it to the cart as a guest, and it shows no drop down in price. Is this deal for real ? Because i just got my PS4 this weekend, and the game Watch dogs. I can call bestbuys, and have them match price it but ! There is no add or listing showing what you are describing above. Is this a bogus posting ? Hmmmm ?

Even with Watch Dogs, i'll have little to nothing else to play on the system that's driving me to it. Just gonna hold out for a real price drop, and pick up UBI's game cheap.

I don't know for sure but when I see all these console price drops I feel like they're failing and are taking desperate measures

I haven't played Watch Dogs in weeks. I have not beat it yet, and I'm not motivated to even play it. It's kinda sad really. Every time I'm in the dashboard and see Watch Dogs on my games list, I highlight it and think about pressing the button, but I never do. =/ 


Anybody feel the same?

Watch Dogs sold so many millions of copies already.  Bundling popular games with consoles usually is a good idea, but does the fact that millions of people already own this game for a previous gen console (or a different next gen console), mean that this bundle is probably much less likely to be successful than bundles that have console exclusive or at least next-gen exclusive games?

Basically they have to be looking for people who are in the market for a PS4 in the very near term and want Watch Dogs but don't already own it, which is a game which many millions of gamers already own.

Makes me mad, I was just in Gamestop the other day and bought this game and a PS4,  and the derelict working behind the counter didn't tell me about this deal, nor did he want to take the time to fill out my gamestop card sign up information.  No wonder they are going under, horrible customer service that's ran by kids.  So mad, should take it back and demand the deal.

to all the xbox fanboys commenting what does the x1 have that the ps4 doesnt have from a gaming aspect?

@spacecadet25 regardless, its still smarter to buy a ps4 and watchdogs for 50 dollars cheaper.. hell sell it on ebay for 40 if you don't want it

@spacecadet25 I imagine theres a great many people out there who didnt buy it because they were planning on buying a PS4 down the line. I would never have bought a game on the PS3 that was on the PS4 for that reason.

@Tranula  Here's couple of other explanations for what happened to you, besides bad customer service:


1. He's just some guy at the counter, he might not even be privy to upcoming promotions until they happen or the day before.  That is really common in retail.


2. They saw the combination of products that you bought and got the idea for the promotion from you.  Maybe you should be flattered?  :)


However, still sucks that happened to you, hopefully you are still able to return for a refund.

@saturatedbutter you're funny. in Israel it costs 2400 NIS. it's about 700 dollars just for the console anda remote control.

@rjh_24  Xbox One has a better upcoming line-up of indie games. PS4's upcoming line-up if full of F2P stuff, and weirdo indie games where you can't even tell what's going on in the screenshots.

@rjh_24 Killer Intinct, Titanfall, Dead Rising 3, Froza 5. Coming- Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2, Halo MCC w/ Halo 5 beta, Project Spark. Future-  new Gears, new Halo Wars RTS, Fable Legends, Phantom Dust Reboot, Crackdown,  Scalebound, D4, Quantum Break, Cuphead, Below, Inside, Ori & the Blind Forest.


Better controllers, better interface, external storage.  Will eventually have Live tiles and Cortana when windows 9 drops and they are hinting at cross-platform gameplay with 360.

@spacecadet25 @Tranula  No he was the closing manager.  And they know when the sales are.  And your numb 2 is just crazy. He was lazy and had no customer service skills.  I will not be doing anymore business with Gamestop.  I made a mistake trying to venture into the console world.  Im staying P.C..

@mattress805  I know, its just the idea.  There truly is no good customer service these days.  All people care about are themselves and what they are doing when they are off work.  The twerp was literally on his phone and said he would "catch me next time" when I wanted to sign up for the Gamestop Card.  Un believable.

@mattress805  Xbox One has only had Kinect-less versions for sale for a little over a month.  That $100 reduction is going to make a huge impact.  I'm not saying Xbox will necessarily outsell PS4 (I don't know), but using previous sales of $500 Xbox vs $400 PS4's for direct future projections is faulty.

@spacecadet25 @rjh_24 if you want to buy a console over indie games then by all means go ahead im going for more power and exclusives that i would rather play

@oflow Out of all those X1 games you mentioned, only Halo & Gears Of War are system sellers. MAYBE the Forza series too.


Phantom Dust very few people know about from back in the original Xbox days but I loved it & it was only $20 at DAY 1 launch :D


Other than that, X1 has nothing worth bragging about more than the PS4. Both consoles are lacking games. That all changes starting on September 9th (Destiny),


(P.s. a Halo Wars sequel hasn't even been confirmed yet so don't bother mentioning it)

Wishful thinking. More like glorified cable box with inferior multi plats. But you can switch between cable and games seamlessly. Lol

@oflow but thanks for showing me what i already knew was coming out for x1 and making me feel better about not getting one 

rjh_24
rjh_24

@oflow yup im glade im not stuck with those games lol not a red neck dont like car games titanfall no one plays ne more halo is a alright the rest are a joke that whole controller talk is just you being a fanboy interface lol what the hell and hinting? wow you got sucked into the hype huh

rjh_24
rjh_24

@poopoohed @rjh_24 besides turning it on and off by talkin when we can just touch the controller or they can waste half their tv watching tv which ruins playing games and their junk of games i dont know what they can say lol

rjh_24
rjh_24

@poopoohed @rjh_24 they are tryin to do their research and seeing if the x1 was actually worth buying lol

@Tranula mine keeps me informed. one day i walked in and got something and the next day it went on sale. so i went back with my receipt and he refunded my money and then ran the sale again. he said 65 % of the time they know about it. the other bit is given to them by email on the beginning day(and they hate that)

therealdolemike

@Tranula just keep in mind some of these people dont hear about the sale until the day of. i know the manager of mine said that is how it is

@rjh_24 @spacecadet25 lol a ps4 owner taling about indie games? No exclusives til 2015. All PS4 has currently is Indies.

spacecadet25
spacecadet25

@rjh_24 @spacecadet25  The original Payday was an indie game.  Some indie games pack a punch, not all are 8 bit sidescrollers.  And from most comparisons of PS4 compared to Xbox One, people aren't seeing the graphical difference.  And besides, Xbox is supposed to utilize cloud computing down the road, so it could become more powerful than PS4.

@mattress805 not wishful at all everything I said can be confirm on the MS site.

@rjh_24 Stuck with those titles? LOL  You trying too hard man.  Those titles are far better than most everything PS4 has coming.  The Order is gonna be overrated its basically gonna be a steampunk uncharted (gameplay looks bad), Bloodborne is another Souls game (not a fan) and Uncharted.  PS4 wont have an exclusive til next year.  Deep Down looks okay but probably wont come out til 2016.

What game are you playing now on PS4? Sound shapes? Knack? Shadowfall? el oh el

You probably are playing Flower or something.  Enjoy your PS4 come back next year when you get some non-indie exclusives.

@oflow @mattress805 must feel nice to watch TV on your GAMING console lol with awful games on/that are coming out for it

@oflow @mattress805 wishful thinking that your opinion matter go play your x1 with all those GREAT games hahahahahha

rjh_24
rjh_24

@oflow @rjh_24 i would rather buy the more powerful console and wait for the great exclusives to come out even tho your so far up MS ass you dont like them for some weird reason

rjh_24
rjh_24

@oflow @rjh_24 its all about opinion on games and like what the ps4 is coming out with then the x1 so calm down fanboy

rjh_24

@oflow @rjh_24 i love how you bash on ps4 games when x1 games are just as bad this year

@rjh_24 @oflow Thats where we differ. I buy a console to play games not brag about how much power it has while I wait for games to come out.

I

rjh_24
rjh_24

@oflow @rjh_24 you really bought an x1 because its less powerfull and bad gameplay because you like where your hand sits on a controller and to play those games you mentioned?

rjh_24
rjh_24

@oflow @rjh_24  so you dont care that it is less powerfull and the games you play are better on another console?

oflow
oflow

@rjh_24 @oflow The multiplatforms will pretty much be the same on both consoles.  For example, Destiny is 1080p 30fps on both consoles.

I'm not worried about multiplats anyway, I'm more concerned about the exclusives.

I personally like the X1's exclusive list much better. 

rjh_24
rjh_24

@oflow @rjh_24 and you say WILL be pretty much the same saying in the future but make fun of me waiting for the better exclusives in the future

@gongon1037 @rjh_24 @oflow @mattress805 lol true im just tryin to oflowlife to realize that some people like different games and thats no reason to go crazy on people for liking games he doesnt like ..... have a talk with him
