    For those who didn't have gold, didn't have a xbox at the time, or for those that had no interest in it at the time.
    You also don’t own the license to an Xbox One game you get through games with gold. If you decide to cancel your gold membership you lose access to all of those games (unlike the 360 where all gold games you actually own). This provides people the option who maybe don’t want to own gold anymore but want to keep the game.

    2.49$ for Shiness is really cheap, really enjoyed this game somehow.
    I second this. I think I paid around $10 and don't regret it at all. Don't be scared by the TA score, it's actually pretty easy to complete. It's time consuming but it's pretty fun.

    Think I'll pick up WRC 7 and The Council.
    Don't bro me if you don't know me.

    The reason is simple. Not everybody is gold so no everybody can get it for free

    Thinking about Infinite Minigolf, but since it seems to go on sale somewhat regularly, I'm just going to mark it and pick it up some other time while I work through other games for the time being.

    Better than usual prices:
    Bound by Flame (1.99, usually 3.99)
    Crysis 1,2, and 3 (4.99, usually 6.59 each)

    Virtua Fighter 2 has been 2.49 last couple of sales, but was 1.99 back on Jan 15, 2019

    Everything else is usual sale price.
    Any way you could do this for the Xbox One sales?

    Now I may be wrong, but aren't the deals of the week for gold members only?

    I can try, but it's alot more complicated to do so, still building up my personal database on the xbox one side, there's a lot more manual data entry/calculations when trying to determine lowest price when taking bundles into account.

    I hope you are aware of that Xbox does not have a constant player base.
    People come to age, get enough savings, switch platform, etc.
    There are always new people who might think these sales are attractive.

    FH 3 Hoonigan Car Pack have never been diuscounted one time since release 2-3 yerars ago.

    The only way to get it on sale is to purchase all DLC you already own. :(
    And that is why it's worth it to wait with buying DLC.
    In the end it is always cheaper to buy all of them at once.

    And it was available for free with FM7.

    Anyone deciding between the Expansion Pass and the Complete Collection should know that Hoonigan Pack is not included in the Expansion Pass, and has never and may never go on sale. So if you have to pay full price for it, you might as well get a ton of other cars at the same time.
    Yes, but Hoonigan pack in FH 3 have achievements, but not in Forza 7.

    Unless you already own the rest of the complete collection which is what makes this a total f'ing joke as early subscribers are continuallypenalised. I say F'em if thats how they want to be theres plenty other more deserving of my hard earnt loot.

    I dare say the mentality behind it is it has not sold well and they paid for the license so they are playing hardball on discounting it, unfortunately for T10 and Playground I am very good at playing hardball.
    I didn't even get Lego DLC for free with MS Points.
    I refuse to support any developer that punishes early adopters even for free with MS points.

    It happens too often that early adopters gets punished.
    Same for Games Pass. New subbers gets 3 months for nothing, including subs to Spotify etc. Early adopters got no deal at all.

    Bungie punished early adopters all the time, and i waited until it calmed down to start it. This is why i waited 2 years until i started playing Destiny 2.

    It may be a good time to get the Complete add-ons collection for Forza Horizon 3.
    It will be delisted next year.
    Also very likely to go down to a ridiculously low price in August, maybe something like the $5 that the Forza 6 Complete Add-Ons went for
    Yeah I am going to wait a bit longer. I have learned my lesson. I bought a bit too early and missed that price cut.
    This is why I don't buy games even after a year of release, 70% or higher forever.
