    I love themed sales. I wish they could put a Kinect themed sale together.

    Bruh, why the games i always want to be on the sale for the 360 never gets into?
    Which Portal: Still Alive, Portal 2 and the Sonic Series should be on this sale.

    The only games i only got interested were GRID 2 and Autosport, Battleblock Theather and Alien Hominid.

    There are Sonic-only sales pretty often, though it's been quite a bit since the last once. Been almost 2 years since a Portal sale though.

    I picked up Kingdoms of Amalur and Tropico 4. I knew Kingdoms could do better than their previous sale price of $9.99 CAD.

    I am starting to run out of games to buy that I'll never play...

    What's the best way to buy Xbox 360 games with credit on your account if you live in an unofficial country? Really wan't to pick up Kingdoms of Amalur and Dungeon Siege 3.

    You'll need an actual 360 console to buy 360 games using your Microsoft Account balance. The currency on your account needs to match the region to which your 360 account belongs.

    Some Games on Demand games will require VPN to be purchased and downloaded (you'll get error 80150017 where this is the case and you will not be charged), while others will be completely unbuyable due to potential regional differences of PAL vs NTSC (for example if you live in Europe and have a PAL 360 and your account is registered in the United States region, where games are NTSC; the majority of games on the US store are region free, but there are some which are exclusively NTSC; those cannot be purchased at all from a PAL 360 console; the system will let you know about this issue, where applicable, once you attempt the purchase and will not charge you; the way to work around this is to use an account registered in a PAL country and use that account to buy that game with appropriate currency).

    This has probably been said a Krazillion times before, but they really need to put prices for 360 games on the Xbox store. In this sale alone do they expect people to click into every game tile, and click See The Price, on 245 games!! It's ridiculous.

    I've heard say that because the 360 games are in a different store system, they can't show prices. Well, I call BS. They can deal with that. At the moment I'm loathed to buy any 360 games at any time for this reason. It's just not user-friendly at all.
    Hellsteeth!

    Tempted by Port Royale but not sure I want to purchase a game if the dlc is going to 3 times more expensive than the game!
    The main game has a lot to keep you entertained. The DLC costs $2.99 per pack, but are pretty easy to mop up achievement wise.

    The other way to think about it is, you're getting a full game with all the DLC for $12.96, where the game's regular price is $19.99 without any of the DLC.

    This is pretty much how you have to look at all 360 DLC now. Factor it in to your purchase price or risk it being delisted before it goes on sale

    I probably picked up way too many for my own good.

    Yeah, I especially wouldn't expect a sale on DLC that's only $3.

    I have an Xbox 360, I'm trying to buy PAL games in a PAL country. Just not that is officially supported. My Xbox is set to the Uk and I'm in Iceland that has never gotten an official Xbl support. Trying to find a VPN that works that let's me buy the games on my Xbox 360 and then play them later on my Xbox One.

    How's Persona 4 Arena? Though honestly, I'm tempted to buy it just for the hope that Arc System Works and Atlus might see a small uptick from that and consider giving us more things...
