am already prepared to get flamed since i also see ppl asking for 'best price'/'good price'/'cheap price'/freebie on everything.........even right down to $1 discount...

i can understand the appeal of something like a 40-60% discount...that is a deal and a steal.

but a 5-20% discount of a game? That is insignificant. A freebie mousepad/phone case is insignificant and pointless.

how much are you saving from that 10% discount? $3-$5?.........a starbucks cost more than that!

same as's less than $10 buck A MONTH. It's less than $1 a day! The money spent is less than a bowl of meepok at Amoy Street!

But no....people just want cheaper, cheaper, cheaper! Best is free!

and it is this mentality that we have Free to Play games, and DLC spreading their scourge on the gaming world.

DLC because ppl are not spending full price on new games...the publisher had to come up with ways to get back their money and earn a profit.

Free to play because zombies are attracting to the word 'Free'.

You want to play games, you gotta pay. You gotta play GOOD games, you gotta play GOOD money. There's no such thing as cheap and good. Cheap/Good are both mutually exclusive of each other!

That's my view. Flame on!

But i digress as this is going away from the PS4 topic.
You have your valid points. As a seller, encountered buyers that always ask for better price etc. It's a Singaporean nature. Some are lowballer which I won't even bother.

To correct your last sentence. Pay more if you want to play good games FAST/EARLY. For single player games, most people wouldn't mind not playing it on Day 1.

That's why maybe you just prefer to pay for convenience. I prefer to exhaust all resources before giving up. It's not the dollar value. It's the % saved.
