    I went in for Enter The Gungeon and This Is The Police from last week as I didn't see anything too enticing in here. Fingers and toes crossed I'm in for fun.

    i am not seeing any discounts when i click on the 360 links from major nelsons site
    Yeah, I think he must have jumped the gun there. The 360 sales are often delayed and he generally waits to post the sale list because of this.
    I'm not sure what's up with that, I checked again on Trials HD which I saw was posted as part of this weeks sale. It's usually $9.99, and it's on sale for $3.99. The only weird thing is that it's listed as $3.99 in the store. Usually it would have a strikethrough the original price and show the discounted price. So I'm assuming the sales are actually live. Not sure though as I haven't gotten to purchasing yet.

    Edit: Nevermind, went to purchase and it was going to charge me the full $9.99 even though it shows $3.99.

    I am trying to decide whether to get the Splinter Cell Double Agent OG Xbox version that doesn't have achievements or gamer scores or the season pass for Assassin's Creed Black Flag?

    I already have the Xbox 360 version of SC Double Agent, but apparently they are very different games, so I wanted to get the OG version as well. There is also the possibility of it appearing on Games with Gold someday.

    Double Agent on the original xbox is a different beast compared to its 360 counterpart. It controls just like Chaos Theory, but events play out a little bit differently. I highly recommend it.

    Anyone else just skip right by all the "bundles" DLCs ultimate super-duper editions immediately every week?
    Yes. If I were making recommendations to the site I would suggest listing the individual games first and the bundles after.
    Always number 2.

    Is the 360 sales not going to get it's own topic list this time or are they just not posted yet?

    As several of us have already said - none of the 360 sales were live earlier. Now it looks like they're finally live so I'd imagine there'll be a topic soon.

    Just saying, I did see all of those messages as I commented a few pages back about that already. I just figured a topic would have been up by this morning finally since the sales were showing as being live yesterday and thought I'd ask if there was going to be a post for the 360 sales this week or not. Thanks.

    To explain each of those cases:

    Case 1 - They're in the "bundles" section because they're "bundles" on the Xbox Store.

    Case 2 + 3 - There seems to be some quirk with the sales generation where bundles containing exactly one achievement-bearing piece of content defaults to the name of said piece of content. This is what's happening with "The Crew" and "Valley of the Yetis". That might need looked at.

    This is not, however, what is happening to Dead Alliance. The bundle on Xbox.com is actually called "Dead AllianceTM". Not sure why it's avoiding that quirk.
    The one that puzzles me is that Legacy of the First Blade is in Bundles and yet The Fate of Atlantis is in DLC.
    He's not a man. He's the holy Half-Dead who has seen the Underverse and returned with powers you can't imagine.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am definitely considering it. I am just afraid it will be given away for free with Games with Gold someday. I will just wait for next month's GWG reveal in a few days before making a decision.

    The OG Xbox version of SC Double Agent is the only Splinter Cell game I am still missing I believe. I have the OG Xbox discs for Pandora Tomorrow, and Chaos Theory as well as the 360 version of Double Agent. The rest I own digitally.

    Mark of the Ninja... it's never on sale... 😭😭

    Am I the only one waiting for ages for it to drop?
    I have been waiting for the price to drop substantially on either PC or Xbox ever since it was remastered, but no such luck.

    No love for 360 sales? Of course we can check it on other sites, but I personally think TA's format is the best.

    This.... I already saw the other link the other day before the prices were even showing on the marketplace and I don't like the format and would rather see the list of prices and not percentages. That's why I asked if it was going to be posted here or not this week since it hadn't been posted yet -_-
