    I was one of those people who waited and lost out. However I already have the game on PC so I can still play it. I was just thinking of double dipping(with its achievements and gamerscores) because of the enticing 85%($4.49) off sale price on Xbox One. That was definitely the all time lowest price for that edition. It normally goes for $9.99 on sale at its lowest in the past on Xbox One.

    However I have a feeling it will eventually show up on Games with Gold just like the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition did a few years ago, so I will get it eventually.

    On a good note, I was able to get Deus Ex Mankind Divided Digital Deluxe Edition(with dlcs) for $6.49(also 85% off) before they raised the price.

    When I bought it about an hour ago, they changed the time limit to buy it from more than a week to 2 hours left so they must have been running out of codes as well.
    Sorry to hear you missed out on it but at least you have the PC version.
    I wasn't aware they used codes when they make a sale, so it's the 25 digit ones like on the gift cards but behind the scenes so you don't actually see it or something?

    That sounds great about Deus Ex: MD, I heard it's good but that the executives at the publisher stepped in near the end and decided to chop off a big chunk of the game to be sold as DLC so the base game ends abruptly and is really short. I came across that when it first came out though and it supposedly pissed off all the fans of course. Cool that you can get everything for just 6.50 now.
    I meant copies, not codes. Sorry. I think publishers give Xbox a certain numbers of copies they can sell after which they reassess the price of the product.

    I also heard that Deus Ex is pretty short. Hopefully the additional dlcs makes it worthwhile. I will try to play it back to back with Deus Ex Human Revolution which I still haven't finished because of my backlog.
    I need to replay Dues Ex HR also. So many missed achievements the first time I played and I picked up the DLC during one of the big sales 2-3years ago when I first got satellite internet. I need to drag my old Xbox out and replay Invisible War too :D The story is so short there also but such a fun game either way!

    I also bought the dlcs on one of the sales on Xbox and would really like to return to Deus EX HR which I really like, but because of my backlog and the fact that I have to concentrate on the games leaving gamepass, I haven't had the time to do so.

    I don't have gamepass to worry about (can't do Xbox One with my internet) but I do have so many games I'm behind on to do so I try not to replay games I've already done right away and focus on things I haven't played at all first. It can't be helped sometimes though and I replay something LoL

    I also need to replay Deus Ex: HR. I usually don't have the patience at being stealthy for long so I chose to go at it guns blazing and Rambo most of the levels so I definitely didn't get the stealth related ones. The base game has 40 missable achievements and I missed 21 of them plus I picked up the DLC for dirt cheap last year so there is a lot of achievements to go back and get for me. I went about it the old-school way of gaming at the time where I didn't pay much attention to achievements being an extra layer of things to do along the way. I also didn't bother reading all the emails in the game either. :D I'll probably keep that strategy next playthrough too, who wants to read 400 emails while you're trying to play a game?

    Yeah I know what you mean, I had a big enough backlog before going gold, now it's on a steady growth pace. I'm not complaining though, acquiring more games is almost as fun as actually playing them. :D

    LoL Like Doom 3 but you need to read those because they have hidden combinations and information in a lot of them.

    There was mention of another sale. Anybody know the link to that nelson guy's site? I've heard him mentioned quite a bit at this site but never seen a link to wherever they keep referring to him.

    There was quite a few locked doors with keycodes in Deux Ex: HR now that I think of it, I cheated and got the codes to the doors n safes from Google though.

    https://majornelson.com/2020/03/16/this-weeks-deals-with-gol...

    If you want to stay on site then go to the top, click main menu, Xbox game prices then the sales tab followed by the view and filter button where you can select Xbox 360 next to platforms and refine further if needed.
    ^That method is better because you can see more info on screen at once compared to Nelson's site so is more useful. People refer to his site a lot because TA likes to ignore DLC sales sometimes. It looks like their search bots picked them up last couple of sales but however have failed to post anything about the backwards compatibility sale like his site did so his is still useful of course. ^The games in the BC sale will show up in the above method so they appear to still be available.

    Thanks for the link! I look at the TA sales page off and on but not lately. I prefer it also because it lists the actual price and not the percentage like the other link shows. I see something in there I wouldn't mind buying but my current money is spoken for so I'll wait for a future sale on it :D

    Haha nah, it's the other little short Dead Rising game (Case Zero, or Case West, whichever was $2). I know that's on disc and I'd rather have it that way anyway so I'll hold off for now still but it's tempting.
