Hi bros, is the christmas bundle worth it? I'm also thinking of getting the camera (@$88) and psn membership ($50 per year?), so total will be $760+. Regretted missing out on the Rakuten deal few days back (20%), but that one came without games.

Also, does it make a difference if I buy from Sony store or some other game shops?
Christmas got how many free games ?

Might want to consider this?



$649
Also includes
  • LittleBigPlanet 3
  • inFAMOUS: Second Son (digital)
  • Escape Plan (digital)
  • RESOGUN (digital)
  • 1-year extended warranty service (so total is 12mths + 3mths + 12mths = 27mths)

For ps+, get the us version from amazon instead.

Personally I think the Xmas bundle is a good deal, especially if you like the games that are bundled with it. You will be hard pressed to find a better deal without going through many loops. At least this one you can just go out and get it now hassle free.

I already have 3 of the games given (LBP3, Second Son & Resogun) and I like all of them.

Ya, thats the deal I'm looking at. So it makes no difference to buy it from Sony store or other game shop right?

Funny thing is I remember the guy from Bugis Sony store telling me to top up $50 for the camera, but when I went to Nex sony, they said its $88. I might have heard wrongly though.

can't sell leh.. coz only one game (little big planet i think) is disc, the rest are preloaded into the ps4. This is according to the game shop la.

Anyway, thanks bros! I'll go get the pack later.

One more question about the PS+, I read through the thread and came to the following conclusion

- US PS+ is better, got more frequent updates and freebies.
- To get US PS+, need to do a bit of sidetracking and register via 3rd party.
- All games are region free, but if I buy a local game in Singapore, I will have to sign in using my local PS+ account to get updates and DLCs? Can someone confirm this? kamsia kamsia!

I think the 3 digital games are download codes lah.
- US PS+ is better due to the more ps+ discounts, store also got more games and dlcs
- US PS+ buy from amazon. (Amazon.com: 1-Year PlayStation Plus Membership - PS3/ PS4/ PS Vita [Digital Code]: Video Games)
- You can buy the DLC for local games (R3) from SG PS Store. You just need to create a SG PSN Account. No need PS+ at all. Updates does not require PS+ also.

Then sell the LBP3 and get Dragon Age or GTA V etc.

If i recall correctly, u can register by visiting the US PSN website and use a US address. The US address just anyhow hoot like use your Comgateway or 65Daigou United States address if necessary. Been a few years since i last done that

You can just simply login using your registered email, the region your PSN belongs to is already pegged during your online registration. The console doesnt care. DLC and price change in the digital products will be reflected automatically when you surf the PSN store. You won't be asked whether the Store to be displayed in Asian or US context.

Yeah u only need 1 US PSN account that you will mainly be playing on. You can probably create 1 Asia PSN account its FOC anyway although i didnt have so far i never find a need to.

When you pay for your PS+ you will peg it to your US account. You just need the shipping address to be a US address thats all, you will purchase the Digital Code version after payment u can see the code in your amazon account. If u need a US shipping address just the one from your Comgateway or Borderlinx whichever u have.
