    Shame they are actually enabled as free yet...
    Wouldn't know where to start.

    Yes, please post this as a new article when SC is actually available for free.

    Yeah, almost paid $20 for splinter cell due to it being early and I wasn't really paying attention...was on the confirm window and saw the $20, and was like, wait a second...lol.
    Yes, I know I am.

    Will get both of them tonight, or when Splinter Cell becomes properly available! Even though I have already completed SC on disc, it was such a good game I would like the option to download it again in future. Death Squared has been on my radar for a while.

    The point is people could accidentally pay for it if they dont check

    But it doesn’t charge you, it only says it will. Like others have said, this has happened before.

    I can confirm that although it says it will charge you, it doesn't.
    Used my paypal account to pay and nothing is showing on it and neither did i get a confirmation e-mail of my purchase.

    Can confirm, in the UK here, showed the price of £8.99, I don't have that in my account currently, I still got the game for free, I checked my account online after confirming the "purchase".
    How now, ground cow?

    Tried the reddit method. Didn't charge me, and I know this because I currently have nothing my paypal account.

    I really hope the DLC gets discounted this week or sometime before the end of the month.
  • Posted on 16 July 18 at 15:57Permalink
    Splinter Cell hopefully is good. And I'm not sure about August's GwG but I'm definitely excited for September's as we should be getting Forza Horizon 2, as its most likely being delisted September or October.

    According to reddit, Splinter Cell will not charge you if you click buy.

    Not tried it myself though.
    I clicked on the "Download to Xbox 360" link on the store and it brought up the payment information for $19.99, so I'm assuming that that "someone" on reddit is trolling people? Not sure, but if it tells me it's about to charge $19.99 to my card, I'll tend to believe it laugh
    To be fair, on the past this has been true. Even though it said buy, and said it would charge you, it didn't. I'm not stating that is true now, I wouldn't know, but just letting you know it is actually possible!
    It didn't charge me. My card was stolen and cancelled so it would have declined but I own it now. I can't say it will 100% not charge you, but it didn't charge me
    @Mike and @Ken

    I hear ya, but I'm just freaked about the slightly chance of spending money on a game I otherwise had no intention of buying, so I'll just wait for the goose eggs to show as the official price smile

    Good info for someone who may be itching to start it though, so thanks! toast

    ALSO, apparently I accidentally clicked the "Report Post" button rather than the "Quote Post" button and didn't pay attention, so yeah... that just happened... sorry!! shock

    I keep getting an error every time I go to See Price on Splinter Cell. Anyone else?

    EDIT: A hard reboot seemed to fix it. 'Bought' it at the $19.99 price point. You people better not have screwed me. laugh

    I have $2 in my Paypal account which is what's linked as a payment for x360. I was also unsure but was armed with the knowledge that I can refund it if I'm charged. Well, I'm still sitting on $2 and have the game so... I'd say its safe to click.

    Splint Cell: Conviction is REALLY good. One of the top 5 Xbox 360 games of all time. The coop in this game is amazing.
  • Posted on 16 July 18 at 17:38Permalink
    If anyone needs to finish the co-op for the base game and the DLC, please shoot me a message, I am desperate to get this done!

    Thank you!
