    I've been thinking this with a lot of the sales I've seen lately. I hope we're wrong.

    So when there's an event in the US everyone worldwide gets a sale but when there's a European event only Europe gets a sale? Okay then
    On balance US gamers have it far better so you can hardly complain.
    You get more games exclusive to your territory, overall cheaper prices and often much cheaper sale prices as well. Not to mention earlier releases for a lot of games.
    Except I’m not a US gamer.
    Ok so substitute 'you' for 'they'. Point still stands.

    I have it on good authority that both Gears 4 and South Park shuts down in two weeks.

    What's the logic there? Yes, they're putting many LEGO, Ubisoft, 2K, and Capcom games on sale solely in Europe because they're going to delist them.

    The sale is most likely related to Gamescom.

    South park? Stick or hole?
    Don't care for gears 4 myself. Besides it seems too early for any gears shutdown Shirley?

    Far cry 5 is a pretty decent deal. 48.99 is 63.22 in US. Currently Gold version priced at 89.99 usd. Available US gold version doesn't include far cry 3, as that was a pre-order perk.

    Why do they keep discounting the "complete" versions of a game, and not the DLC seperatly, especially for prior Games With Gold? Keeping DLC at full price is not encouraging me to buy it, and I'm not paying for a game a 2nd time..

    WatchDogs was a GWG title, and I'm half interested in the DLC, but no way am I buying the complete edition at £16 when I already have the base game, and no way I'm buying the DLC at full price for an older game either,,,

    Also until the end of August Xbox Gold and Xbox Game Pass are each £2 for two months to new subscribers.
    Does this deal stack? Say I buy $10 worth of gamepass. Does that mean I get 10 months worth of gamepass?

    OK, Bad choice of example title, but you get the point :)

    Try LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Deluxe Edition @ £22.50, Game only £20, Each DLC is £2.39. It does not encourage someone who bought the title already (physical or digital) to buy DLC.

    (And Yes,you may tell me that was on sale last week too!)

    glad there are different sales for different regions...hopefully they intersect fully at one point.
    I hate all things PC, and I don't mean personal computer.

WTAF??? The US adopted (English) what now coz English speakers are ahem English do the US need a helping hand in reminding them what language they speak coz the day anyone speaks american oh dear???? Look we just invented the language man I dont need a flag or a polite reminder to remind me what im speaking ' unbelievable man'

    Once you're subscribed you can't really become a "new subscriber" multiple times - so I'm gonna say no. (Just guessing, though.)

    You might not need a reminder, but could you remind the rest of us what language you're speaking? shock
