Saw this in my local Game (Lowestoft Store). It was reduced to £20 for the brand new version, (not pre owned version). It was the double pack. I never purchased nor did I take a photo (just updated with photo). It's more expensive online as only being sold by a 3rd party seller.

Being new to all this PS4 malarkey (literally only got one an hour ago), is there any disadvantage to getting a used copy of this game? Or any other games in general?

Used games come with the risk of scratched disks, damaged manuals and cases. Including dlc in leaflet/ code form being used where not on disc. Though one of the best sources is boomerang rentals games. Their ex rental stock when on sale is in good condition with any dlc where applicable and often cheaper than elsewhere.

For these particular games, no difference.

But it depends on the game. For some which were originally sold with DLC, the DLC may have already been used.

...and before you ask "What is DLC?"

DLC: A lazy way for developers to extort more hard-earned out of the public by adding extra small and usually peripheral and useless type doodahs and worthless whatnots to a game generally after it has already been released.

This was brand new stock. Was priced up as £20 (with the big red stickers). They had 2 copies left. Get them to scan the game.

People know what they're paying for, you can call the developers lazy but it's simple supply and demand, with consumers choosing to spend their 'hard-earned' on 'useless type doodahs'.

Some DLC is actually really great and is worth paying for, you just have to evaluate whether you'll get enough enjoyment out of DLC before you make the decision to purchase it.

That said, I can't blame anyone for adopting your sort of attitude, given the sort of ridiculous cash-grab DLC most of the AAA companies seem to be putting out there.

The developers ARE lazy in this respect. It is only supply and demand because the software houses MADE it to be like this. They knew the majority of their consumer base would be like sheep and blindly follow whatever it was they did.

It is most definitely a cash grab and just a reflection of how gaming and the software houses changed their development models as they figured they could make a quick buck.

Just go back a few years and DLC did not exist at all. Nowadays, look at how that often beyond the release date of a game how many updates are even needed to make a game run smoothly or to fix bugs - this itself is just a reflection of the changing development environment - churn 'em out as fast as possible and pile the sales as high as you can. DLC is nothing more than an extension of these gung-ho business models of getting the stuff out as fast as possible while trying to make a buck on the side after the original release by keeping sales turning over for as long as possible.

If they had made a proper effort, that very DLC you are talking about should have been A PART of the original game, not an afterthought costing users more of their hard earned.

Have had this attitude to it since day one and I don't see it ever changing tbh.

I have never paid for a piece of DLC yet nor do I ever intend to.

I find sometimes it's because the staff have the copies themselves. They don't purchase until store close, so you check, there is stock. Check again after 5:30, they'll be no stock. I've done it on a couple of occasions. I know it's the perks of the job, but can be frustrating.
