    It sounds a little bit crazy but I do also own 3 Xbox 360, Phat, Slim and Slim e.

    Now only play with Slim E because is the quietest and consume less power

    One thing I find it weird, Left 4 Dead being missed here, it's a great game for Halloween purposes.

    However I'm afraid to say I already owned all DLC from L4D 2, bought them when Microsoft Points were available, and when moved to my newer system, and my purchase history is gone, together with some games.

    Is there a way to recover them? I don't want to re purchase again some titles.
    Unless you bought them on a separate account that was on that Xbox, they should still appear in your purchase history. If it was a different account, you'd have to log into on the new one. You could then transfer the licenses to the new Xbox.
    No it doesn't, everything prior to Real money on Microsoft store, all purchase history is gone, if you google it, there's a lot of complaints about it. didn't know people on this forum knew that.
    There is no way that is true as Microsoft points were the only method of payment during the early 360 days and I consistently bought games with points and I still have tons of them. Maybe for certain games but certainly not "everything"

    It's actually a really good sale considering and I for sure have scooped up some deals like The Park! Not sure I've yet got the balls for Alien Isolation or RE7!

    Yeah, what gives? I saw it listed the first day of the sale then I come back today to buy it and it has been removed. Back to regular price!

    Was anyone able to buy Alice: Madness returns with his One or at xbox.com? I´ve been trying it since tuesday and all i get is "Your purchase cannot be completed at this time. Please try again."
    I bought Bulb Boy from the sale just to check if the CC is still working, no problems there.
    And I already bought a couple of bc-games, the last was Grid Autosport a few weeks ago.

    Someone at reddit has the same problem when he tries to buy Dead Space.

    It only displays the Microsoft Points you bought (1200, 800, etc), it doesn't show what you have purchased with the MS Points, it didn't happen to you because probably you didn't change your system, if you change to another console, all those dlc and games you bought are gone, even moving your hard disk, it won't work because all licenses are gone.

    It must be user specific then. I've had about 10 different 360s including the halo variants and the elite. Still have the Halo ones on hand as part of my collection.

    I bought tons of arcade games back then. All appear in my history, on my 360, and as backwards compatible (the ones that are). I actually have tracked them pretty meticulously too. The one game I swear I bought but does not appear in my history was double dragon.


    Actually just did a bean dive too and added almost 200 games to my games played.

    Knoell,

    Thank for your reply, one thing I have remembered just now, is that I had purchased those dlc and games when I was using an US regional account, back then, it had lots of more content and better discounts and offers, no real advantage using of my countries'.

    Problem when using from other region, is that some games won't work or download under the Games with Gold feature from Microsoft since some are regional blocked, some annoying and ridiculous feature from Microsoft, so I have switched back to my European account, appearing only Microsoft Point which were accepted, it could be from that.
