    Picked up Dandara for dat dere ratio. Was gonna wait and see if it ever got to gamepass but considering it's been AWOL for the past year I figured I might as well cave and buy it. Shame about the unobtainable that probably won't ever be fixed however :(

    Dandara was already in Game Pass.

    Yeah, but it looks like it was removed about a year ago and I have a suspicion that it probably won't ever get put back on.

    Anyone played the Planet of the Apes game? Looks to be a relatively stress free completion, just wondering if it’s worth the 10-12 hours it’ll take.
    It's incredible, but I'm biased because I wrote the guide. It's exactly like watching another film in the series, and the animation is impressive. I'd pick it up.
    Damn dirty apes!
    I guess I'll be picking up even though I am not a fan of the original movie.

    Pit People. Maybe Greedfall the next time around.
    Both really good games...
    Appreciate the insight! If I get around to Greedfall, I'll likely not finish with the high difficulty achievement but everything else looks doable enough.

    I think TA has it wrong because it shows .99 when I go to the store.

    The difficulty achievement is very easy. Just spam parry.

    Greedfall looks pretty good. However, most of the other games by the developer/publisher are staples of Gamepass/GWG and frequently are on sale. Soooooo I think I'll hold off for now. It's not guaranteed, but I think it's very likely this can be had for cheap/free at some point.

    Watchdogs 1+2 and all dlc at a good discount, finally! Oh wait not available in england

    Is there a workaround for this? like region change?
    Did you find a way to do this?
    I’m hoping to get both the gold editions as well.
    Change your Xbox's region location to the desired country in the options menu.

    Buy digital gift cards for the same region (can get them online for example https://www.mtcgame.com/en-US/microsoft-points/xbox-live-gif...)

    NOTE: you can only use gift cards for same region as you buy them. So your $ amount will appear separate from your £ amount in your payment options.
    Thanks for this bud, i presume i can change the region back to the UK once the content has been paid for via the gift card and installed?

    The gift card required for the package price of $20 is only around $18 (just under £15) so it really is a good deal.
    Yeah you can change back to the UK easily and back to another region via the same method as often as you want. If you have any remaining balance it won't disappear but you will have to change region again to use it (so $ will still be linked to your account, go to payment options in the menu to see all your gift credit by currency).
    Just tried it and it doesn't work for me. Got an error on the console and Xbox.com.
    10 euro wasted.

    Was the error redeeming the gift card, or purchasing the game?

    The gift card. But, I was too impatient. After going back just now, it did redeem. Now to try the game...

    Also you cannot use this method with 360 and original games, because Microsoft can't be bothered to import these games properly into the store . When you see them in the One store, it's actually just a hyperlink back to the 360 store, so gift cards will not work with these games and at this time it's extremely difficult to change regions on 360 and still have gift cards work (if anyone knows a method please comment)

    Some 360 games are region locked. Deals with publishers (even 15 years ago) will still hold, so they won't be changing that.

    I've bought 360 games from many different regions over the years. It was easier with MSP, but it is still possible. However if you want to buy from 10 regions, you need 10 accounts. And if you want Gold sale prices, they need at least 30 days of Gold.

    I don't want to have multiple accounts: I want to be able to use the same account. The fact is the vast majority of the games aren't region locked and don't need to be on a separate store. The whole set up is dumb: essentially you can't use your gift cards on Original and 360 games on the Xbox One. I've had issue with the site so now I'm having to switch to my 360 just to use my gift cards/rewards points. Think I'm just going to change my Hotmail account region and if I can't boost for 90 days then so be it.
