    The car packs hardly ever go on sale. I gave up waiting for the Hoonigan pack and paid full price.

    And yes, it will probably all get delisted soon. I predicted the delisting of the Forza Motorsport 3 DLC and it has followed a pattern ever since. People say they want to be notified about delistings, but are you expecting a phone call from Microsoft to personally inform you? If seeing the Forza Motorsport 5 Car Pass reduced from $50 to $5 doesn't grab your attention, then a forum post on the Turn 10 site is unlikely to.

    Come on let's get the FH2 Porsche Expansion on sale! If not, I guess it will have to be a full price purchase before delisting =\ Here's to hoping!

    I hope everyone has the complete editions of Fallout 4, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and Rise of the Tomb Raider by now. Great prices and often on sale.
    By chance my mail order copy of Fallout 4 GOTYE arrived today :) $25 USD
    Nice! I've been wondering: for the physical GOTYE, is the DLC on disc or provided as codes?

    Is Stardew Valley ever on sale? Wanna buy it but wondering if it’s ever been a better price.
    I've literally been checking every week for almost a year hoping to see it on sale.
    Wake me, when you need me.

    Stop spreading rumours. At most it COULD be delisted soon.

    Forza games have 4-year licenses. At the end there is EOL status. Forza H1- 2012-2016,FM5- 2013-2017 and FH2- 2014-2018. So... Delisting will be as soon as 4th Septembe.

    Look at Deus Ex every single time it goes on sale (which is quite a lot lately). Have Human Revolution sat in my backlog that I've just never got into.

    I have been wanting to play Rise Of The Tomb Raider before Shadow comes out in September. Whats the chances that once I buy this version, it will be in games for gold?

    Looks like the full add-on pack is on sale. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/forza-horizon-2-complete-a...

    I've grabbed that, includes the Porsche collection and a lot more.
    It was part of last weeks sale, which has now finished. Your link is broken, but mine works.HolyHalfDead said:
    The Complete Add-Ons Collection is still on sale for 2 more hours - http://www.microsoft.com/p/x/bp4np6dfzvcs $27.39 NZD (= $18.46 USD)

    It will come down to licensing. If Turn 10 agreed to give Porsche $7.50 for every pack sold, they can’t exactly reduce it to $5. It’s why there are no Porsche in Forza games, that way they don’t have to pay Porsche a cent.

    The complete collection for $18 was a great deal since the Porsche pack alone costs $15. So $3 for everything else, including Storm Island was really Turn 10 pretty much giving it all away before the delisting. The Forza Motorsport 3 content was reduced to $1 the week before it was delisted.

    I think it is great what Turn 10 do, but there will still be people complaining next week that 80% off was too expensive but if Turn 10 had phoned them up and told them it was the last time it would be available they would have bought it.

    The base game may come up on GwG, but I got tired of waiting a while back. It regularly comes up for sale as it is now and is still a great deal. If you're going to go for it now, the 20 Year Anniv Bundle is the best because regardless, you're going to want the Baba Yaga DLC too.

    Fe may look tempting at $8, but don't do it. Game is terrible and the completion is extremely aggravating due to the map design.

    Jump on that forward horizon 2 dlc if you were wanting to use it in the future because there's a strong chance it will get delisted soon if previous years are anything to go by.

    Edit: should have read the whole thread, looks like people already have this covered! laugh

    Are you missing some games? Don't Starve Together is on sale.
    I think the sales lists are derived from recent price changes. Don't Starve Together went on sale Thursday, which is likely why it wasn't picked up here.

    Picked up Fearful Symmetry & The Cursed Prince as it seemed to be different enough to be interesting and a fairly easy completion (hopefully anyway, lol).
