RE is it still popular, it is. At time of writing, the player stats for PC is:

17,430 online and 34,411 was the 24hr peak (http://bf4stats.com/)

By comparison, the much newer Star Wars Battlefront shows:

11,756 online and 19,889 was the 24hr peak (http://swbstats.com/)

Not bad for the much older game.

As for if you're willing to invest the time, yeah, that's my concern too. I put quite a lot of my gaming time into Diablo 3 already with out UT2004 matches to add some variety. Don't know if I want to put the 100s of hours into Battlefield. I could always play it as a casual shooter but I wouldn't unlock many weapons or gun modifications to use.

Bear in mind BF4 did just have an update that likely brought a bump in players. You might not be able to find populated servers with a specific map you want to play but there should be plenty of local populated servers still.
It does have a singleplayer campaign too. It's not great, but it's pretty fun. Especially if you're getting it that cheaply. :)

Yep, has all the DLC packs included. If you do buy, be sure to have the Premium version selected and not the Digital Deluxe version... they're the same price but Premium is what comes with the paid DLC packs.

Now you're tempting me to do the same!

EDIT: OK, I've decided to be a sheep and have purchased myself a copy too (though I've had the game installed for over a year since trying it out using the Game Time feature). First time I've ever bought a game off Origin and I've got 19 games in my library - lol.

The Mass Effect Trilogy is also only $15 atm too. Don't forget all the free add-on bonuses.

Add me if you want kharis. Origin ID is 'MugsyAU' (it's the one with a pic of Ted).

Cool. I've sent a friend request.

I should probably start on Dragon Age Origins... so many free games and I still play Diablo 3 more than anything - lol.

Here's hoping Star Wars Battlefront gets cheap. That game isn't worth the $60 it currently is on Origin.

You can get the standard edition on Origin Mexico using TunnelBear for $37, not bad but still a little too much imo.

No sale on Need for Speed on Origin unfortunately. The only NFS games with discounts are the older ones (though I do like Criterion's take on Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted... could have done with more cheesy cutscenes with stereotypical characters and babealicious... babes).

White 500gb PS4 at Big W for $368 seems like a bargain? Or have the price of these things dropped significantly? https://www.bigw.com.au/product/playsta ... 000260585/

Bit of both. The price of PS4s have dropped a bit lately but $368 is pretty good.

So I decided to get BF4 yesterday... but got deluxe instead of premium. Poo. Did refund, which came through today... but now Origin won't process a new goddamn order for Premium. /join #FWP

Yeah, it was stupid of them to have both deluxe and premium at the same price. It's confusing enough as it is.

Isn't the PS4 price drops due to a new version of the console coming out soon?

This guy tested the PS3 version on PC and says it works on WinXP, Vista and Win7:

Steam Winter sale has started. No daily deals or flash deals this year, probably linked to refunds now being a thing. Just several days of solid deals.
Including Half Price Amygdala?

They're only used to craft the North Pole Noir badge, nothing special. Sell them or craft them to make the most of them as they'll disappear after the sale, unlike past event cards.

I'm sitting on about $5 so far after selling some yesterday. Not sure what I'll spend it on though, I'll probably wait until the end of the sale so I can sell more cards and pick up a couple of cheap games.
