Kinda weird if its only EU bc of gamescom. Does that mean next years E3 sale will only be for US bc it takes place here? I kid, but the logic doesnt make sense to me behind this particular decision. Oh well.

This article needs to be updated. The actual stuff on sale in the US is a tiny fraction of what is listed.

Had my eye on Starlink for awhile. looks to me like Star Fox meets No Mans Sky, however, the DLC is a mess and has me confused if this is a F2P style game or what. Can you complete the whole game with the original game purchase? And is it split-screen coop?

much thanksies

It would have been nice that instead of 50 comments asking why games aren't showing sale prices, TA just put in the article at the top saying why games are not on sale in your region. C'mon. Update the article!
wow people obviously cant read its a european only gamescom sale.

Why doesn't TA just exclude items that aren't on sale in the region you selected prices for?
The full list with percentage discount is what’s important. The prices are pointless unless you happen to live in one of the 5 regions.
Uh, what? Why would someone care about sales that aren't available in their region?

What I'm saying is that the region selector should hide any items that aren't on sale in that region.

Any opinions on Oceanhorn? It looks like a Zelda Wind Waker spinoff and has good reviews on the store page (roughly 4.5/5 from 25 people) as well as here.

I have the Android version and it is pretty similar to Zelda has some cool bosses too. Story-wise not nearly as intriguing as a Zelda game but does scratch that itch.

Just checked Amazon and saw all the toy preferals like Skylanders had so it makes sense now that its a cash grab title. Thanks for the tip ill wait for a good sale be fun to play with the kids in the future.

Ya looks to be a europe only gamescom sale such BS.

Here ya go.. https://www.xbox.com/EN-GB/promotions/sales/gamescom-sale

Would be awesome if this article started to include a column for "Estimated Completion Time". Could really help scroll through looking for good deals for achievements.
Click on a game with a low TA score is so hard i know..
Umm, the article doesn't show TA score either. I'd be fine with either TA score or estimated completion time as part of these articles. Yes, I can manually click every single game in the list to see this info, but would be cool to include it in these articles.

Anyone any idea if the Dragon Age Inquisition Jaws of Hakkon DLC would unlock the xbox 360 version as well? I know if you buy the X360 version of the DLC you get the Xone version as well, just not sure if it works the other way. 360 version has never gone on sale an is unlikely to but is way more expensive
Nope. Separate SKUs, separate pricing.

See that's just not true, if you buy the 360 DLC you 100% do get the X1 DLC. Just not sure it works the other way

I feel Burnout Paradise Remastered is a steal at a fiver but my problem is can I really sit through and go through the whole game all over again?
If you've already played through it once, most of the game will go by really quickly since you already know the map. Kind of a slog to get the tougher achievements again though.

You know what i think would be neat? A list of every xbox one game, that can be sorted by price, sale or regular. There's a lot of really cheap games out there, but navigating the store by price is impossible.

You can't filter these lists but you can sort. Can't y'all just click the sale price header and read them that way?
