    Finally bought Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice last week at the 50% off price because I got tired of waiting for it to go lower. At least I can tell myself that I'm supporting the developers with the fo-fiddy difference.

    You're welcome laugh

    Did anybody play Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered currently? I loved the original but read about issues of crashing and corrupted save files.

    I’m going to 100% the original tomorrow.

    But I much preferred Armageddon - because I play PvE legit but I boost PvP. And the 25 chapter campaign in Armageddon was a blast.

    I wish some Backwards Compatible games were also on sale.
    There are loads, if only you looked 3 posts above yours.

    Even if you did not get a notification, it is worth to check the list - probably a site bug, there are some games from my wishlist here.

    Finally there is a Wolfenstein II season pass sale, I won't buy it for 33 off though. 3 short DLC shouldn't be more expensive than the game itself.

    So the regular price of The Lego Movie 2 Videogame is £70 going off a 75% discount at £17.50 is it M$. No thanks I'll switch region and pay $9.99 (£7.94)
    What have M$ got to do with it? Pricing is set by TT. Anyway it is 50% off, not 75%.
    Still says 75% off, I even checked the Aussie prices.

    OK so if Warner Bros sets the prices why do we regularly wildly different prices on PlayStation sales to Xbox sales for games by the same Publisher ?

    The price for Artifex Mundi games on Xbox have increased and rarely give much of a discount on sale, but on PlayStation they give steep discounts and also make them available on PS Now.

    Wow, they managed to not trigger a single alarm from my HUGE wishlist. Well done!
    It's either a bug or the PM is going out very slowly. I see some games that are in my wishlist that I didn't get a PM about.

    EDIT : None of them are a price I like or I'm interested enough to snatch right now, so meh.
    Nah, it's not a bug. I have a wish list on another page, and about 95% of those games NEVER went on sale once. But usually I get at least one game on sale from my list.

    I don’t know where you are seeing 75%, as it is showing as 50% for me

    WB set the prices. You would have to ask them why it varies so much between consoles and countries. Perhaps they have a deal with Sony.

    It is a bug, as others and myself has items from our wishlist on sale and never got a notification.

    I bought D2: Shadowkeep the day before it went on sale. I asked Microsoft for a refund and got it!

    Beware with DR4, very buggy achievements. The last key for a safe room despawned after picking it up and now I cannot 100% without doing the whole game again, including all of the grinding (which there is a lot!). I had most of the grind done as well...angry

    Quick completions? Also if you spend $40 you get 4,000 points back, joke is on them because I have enough points to get $50 gift card. Might grab the rest of the lego games on sale because I have all the AC games.

    Anyone who plays Elite Dangerous - are The Return, Guardians and The Commanders all part of the Horizons Season Pass or are they seperate addons / purchases to the base Horizons addon?

    They way are listed makes it seem like they may be seperate:

    • Horizons: The Return
    • Horizons: Guardians
    • Horizons
    • Horizons: The Commanders

    I already own the base game so might pick it up and get back into it if all I need is the Season Pass to get all the available content.
    As far as I know they were/are free updates for Horizons pass holders, so as long as you own the Horizons Season Pass you’ll have access. In fact, I’m pretty sure Horizons is the only paid expansion released so far for ED.

    Basically all the Assassin's Creed games and DLC on sale... except Freedom Cry. Is this some kind of statement Ubisoft? shock

    All jokes aside, why is it not on sale? It's the last piece I need and it hasn't been on sale in forever.
    Out of all the story DLC I’ve played Freedom Cry is easily one of the best. Not saying you have to pay full price for it but if a DLC ever does deserve its full asking price, Freedom Cry is it.

    Microsoft are not saying much at the moment, maybe its a sale to honour the Black and African American community at Microsoft?
    . So letting everyone rent Selma and Just Mercy for free for several weeks for free doesn’t count?

    It might say something pretty unpleasant about gaming culture but there aren’t a whole bunch of games that take a good, hard look at structural racism and the history of race in western cultures.

    If you want to take a good, hard look at gaming, gamers, and yourself, play Spec Ops: The Line. Fair warning, it doesn’t have anything pleasant to say about most of us.

    Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition is missing the "Super Ultra Dead Rising 3' Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + α" dlc.

    When was the last time that dlc was on sale?
    That’s because Arcade Remix was literally never a part of the Season Pass or the Apocalypse edition, just like some of the Borderlands 2 DLCs were never a part of its Season Pass. In both cases the contents of the Season Pass were listed at release and delivered as promised so it’s hard to feel cheated.
