    I mean Carrion looks really cool and I've always had a soft spot for Destroy All Humans, but I doubt those will come up to the total :/ Oh well, guess I'll just wait for them to go on sale and end up saving more in the long run anyhow lol

    Thanks !
    Saves me some frustration after buying some and wondering why I got no refund / voucher.
    Would be nice to add that in the news item.

    Desperados is impo the best game released this year.

    Annoyingly, I got it day one so I won’t get the credit. Nevermind, was so worth a day one purchase.

    Does anyone know if pre-ordering Destroy all Humans will count towards the total? It's not listed within the Summer Spotlight on the Xbox store, so should I just wait until it is to make sure it counts?

    I'm confused, is this separate from the "big Summer July sale" everyone always goes on about in the weekly deals section?

    Or $75 in the “Winter Spotlight Sale” (their words not mine). But I didn’t see any mention of gift cards.

    I didn't either, when I looked on my browser it only mentioned 5,000 rewards points. I tried clicking around but found no mention of a gift card.
    If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

    Nice! Was looking to pick up Spongebob and Destroy All Humans anyways, so I'll happily take the rewards that come with it!

    $5.00 back after spending $50 just doesn't seem like enough of an incentive. I like the regular sales as there can be some deep discounts but I suppose if you were already looking to pay full retail for any of these titles you'll get something back.

    it is more than just that - you are forgetting the additional $5 gift card ($10 if you have Game Pass Ultimate) so that brings it up to $15. Then there is the reward where you get a percentage back from purchases through Microsoft Rewards, which is about another $5. So that equals up to around $20 back from a $50 purchase - a 40% savings! and on new releases no mention!

    It sucks. I hope the event is not what comes INSTEAD of the Summer Sale! Too expensive, and the coupon we 'win' is ridiculous. 'Buy a lot to get a few for free!'........

    I thought 'Max and the Book of Chaos' was the sequel of 'Max: The Curse of Brotherhood'. What a deception when I watch some gameplay of the recent game..............

    Nothing for me, either it's shit, either it's too expensive. Or both...

    does this only count for the us? Not sure, so just asking..
  • Posted on 21 July 20 at 21:18
    Don't see anything in that list that I want or that even interests me. Hopefully they add more games later. But so far it looks like yet another sale that i'll be passing on.

    I forgot that they were making a Samurai Jack game!
