$10 for Overwatch: Origins Edition upgrade (50% off)

$10.00

Right now on battle.net, you can upgrade your copy of Overwatch to the Origins Edition for $10, which is 50% off of the normal price of upgrading.

https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/b...ns-edition

It's worth noting that there is a $10 flat discount on the full Origins Edition, but that's not as appealing considering the upcoming $40 GCU deal listed in this other thread.

But this is a great deal for existing players who want access to the following:
  • Overwatch: 5 in-game origin skins: Overgrown Bastion, Security Chief Pharah, Strike-Commander Morrison, Blackwatch Reyes, and Slipstream Tracer.
  • Heroes of the Storm: Tracer hero
  • World of Warcraft: Baby Winston pet
  • Hearthstone: Overwatch card back
  • Diablo III: Mercy's wings
  • Starcraft II: Player portraits for Tracer, Reaper, Pharah, Winston, Bastion, and Soldier: 76

Why doesn't the base game ever go on sale? It's like this game is popular or something

I got it when I used Best Buy credit I had leftover to purchase Battle.net gift cards, and bought it through Battle.net. It was a pretty good way to dump some leftover + promo credit.

I can't believe anyone would spend any extra money for origins edition crap! I like the game but the normal $20 extra for a few crappy digital bonuses is a joke.

Man I'm kind of tempted but I don't even really play much of the 5 characters that have origin skins and the ones I do I already have my favorite skins for.

Talk to their customer service. They'll usually refund the difference.

I can't think of any reason why slickdealers who are here to save money would spend $10 for this!

Was thinking the same thing. This is a clear case of DLC that should just be free. The skins aren't anything to write home about. I may have considered getting all of the Olympic DLC and skins for a price, but you're talking $2 per skin, and nothing really impressive for other games unless you REALLY care.

My ONLY gripe with the game is that they made earning items take so long that it's just not fun. I just went 12 loot boxes in a row without any new skins. All duplicates and sprays. I can't tell you the last time I saw a yellow. It's clearly geared towards having people purchase crates and unlock that way. I have no problem with the ability to do that, but I shouldn't be getting 1 or 2 duplicates when I have maybe 15% of all items?

Wouldn't you rather spend $10 on lot boxes if you care about skins so much? I wonder when the next cash grab, err I mean holiday loot boxes are coming.

There is no "hate" here. I think people are just trying to understand how someone can justify spending $10 on this.

There are many that would like it. People get more out of certain products than others. I don't see why this is apparently shocking to some of you.
