    Nothing tempting....and considering that it's always the same old story (seeing like a random AC at $24.99 BUT set at €35) it's just giving me more strenght to avoid any purchase.

    I'll play Odissey or Origins like 25645 years later, but i don't care

    I've been waiting for a good sale price on Forza Horizon 3 for a while, $14.99 is probably as good as it'll get. Also, the Complete Add-ons Collection is showing up as 80% off ($27.79) at StoreParser:
    https://www.storeparser.com/en-US/xbox-one/deals/bundle-1196...

    For whatever reason it doesn't show up as available at microsoft.com (or in the store on the console). Hopefully it shows up tomorrow...
    FH3 should be a GWG title later this year, so long as the program sticks around. You'll probably get the add-on collection cheaper then, as well.
    The Complete Add-Ons Collection hasn't been on the store for quite some time. Not sure where StoreParser got a price from, even their own link takes you to a Microsoft page that says it isn't available for purchase, only code redemption.
    They reduced it to 80% just before they delisted it in May 2019. StoreParser clearly says it is not available, and shows the date it was delisted. It isn’t going to be showing up tomorrow.

    Forza often makes those bundles, like current Motorsport + previous Horizon that only shows up once and is not picked up by price scanners.

    The complete Add-ons bundle will certainly be back in the summer sale for 15 and I bet a week before the GWG for 5, then it will be the cheapest price for the Hoonigan pack ever so I might pick it up on a separate account to have a complete FH3 setup there.

    (do you know if you get to use GWG games from another account on your console if it is not actually that account that has the gold subscription? )

    Thank you both. Exactly what I needed to know. Now I need to dwell on whether the digital price here is my biting point. Will probably go for it I expect the digital prices will go no lower than this any time soon.
    $25 is a fantastic price for both. I bought each a couple months after release and they were well worth it then, too. They're great games and will suck you in and easily keep you entertained for 120-150 hours each.
    Agreed, both great games!
    And the dlc alone will keep you busy for a while 👍🏻

    Thoughts on AC: Rogue Remastered? I have the 360 version through GWG and I'm about to boot up some version of the game this month; are the upgraded visuals worth $12 if I got the original for free? I don't plan to stack them. Playing on the X.
    I thought the exact same thing, forked out $$ for Remastered, you're really not missing out by sticking with the free version. Of all the Creed games I felt Rogue had was the weakest of the bunch, should have stuck with the free (GwG) copy.

    Some people swear by Rogue, and if it was a choice between buying the 360 ver and buying the XB1 ver, I'd take the latter, but if you already have one and don't plan to double-dip, then stick with the free version. It plays on the XB1 anyway.
    Thanks! Saved me some dough.

    Not necessarily, this one is only available on the marketplace WHEN it's on sale. They list it and then delist it again when the sale ends. I picked it up on sale for 80% off after it had been delisted for months, so there's a chance it'll come back around the time the game goes on GWG (I agree, unlikely tomorrow). They've done that in the past with the previous titles, at least with all the DLC. Not sure if the other ones had "Complete Add On listings like 3 and 4 though.

    No.

    GwG are only available with an active subscription.

    I'm also glad to hear some feedback about it, but I did like the original AC Rogue the best of all the non-RPG AC games. It was a great combination of the frontier setting of ACIII and the pirate ship action of AC4. Way better than Unity, which came out on the same day.

    Also...Benjamin Franklin gives you a musket with an underslung grenade launcher. That's EPIC.
    State of the badass art.

    I've not spent more than £15 on a game for almost 2 years it makes me nervous lol. Oh well. Sounds worth it.

    These are not the sales you are looking for!

    Nothing here, main things I am after are Prey (and Dishonored 2 bundle), Silence on Xbox ONE and Prey, Shenmue 1 and 2 on Win 10

    I did buy Lego Force Awakens Season Pass for Xbox 360 though, not on sale, on this Revenge of the Fith day!

    To be clear, this is only true for Xbox One games. Xbox 360 GWG you get the same as if you bought it, you own it even if your sub ends.

    Just please put the Season Pass on sale!
    Literally waiting on this sake since it’s release! To my knowledge it’s is the first AC Syndicate Jack the Ripper has been on sale, was also waiting forever for that one. About freakin’ time!

    Actually GwG games are yours to keep even if your gold expires. I double box my games so on the box you designate “My Xbox” anybody can play your “owned” and game pass games (if active sub). On any other box, someone else can play your games/sub games so long as your account is also signed in.
