    The uk marketplace pricing is just weird, The Evil Within digital Bundle cost the same as the base copy.
    But different % of discount. Techniques to get you buying the bundle (70% of discount). Because the bundle have a bigger discount than the game only (60% of discount).
    Is not weird, it's just the effect of a smart marketing.
    Super smart and if customer own a physical copy, they get to sell them a digital copy with bundle hence they get them to buy the same game twice while boasting total sales record. That's sure gonna improve franchise viability to investorss for a sequel or prequel or midquel or paraquel.

    Also its a great way to adjust customer base's expectation of publisher's value proposition enough to generate new revenue streams in the future such as $1 per game save states like Metal gear survive or better yet $2 to download director's video commentary. Smart marketing indeed.

    I hate these fake deals. Who will buy the season pass when they get the full bundle for less. Also, this discourages buying the game early.

    Thinking about that Arkane bundle, the Doom Slayers set and Evil Within 2. That should more than hold me over until Cyberpunk 2077 and the X1X...

    Am I underestimating Artifex Mundi or do they review bot their own titles? It sure seems odd how those games randomly seem to get so many 5 star ratings on Xbox when the percentage of people who do rate something seems VERY low.

    Nothing for me, hopefully soon.

    Maybe 4 stars, their games have been good fun for me so far. I really enjoyed Enigmatis, Grim Legends and Nightmares from the deep.

    Maybe. But while HOG's aren't the most popular games out there, Artifex Mundi have pretty much set the bar for them, so in that way, I'm not surprised

    Tempting to buy New York expansion for Tom Clancy's Division 2, especially since the game only cost me £7.00 way back.

    Does RAGE 2: Deluxe Pack only include one DLC and not the other? Am I reading that correctly?
    That is correct. And the one that's not included isn't available a la carte in the store; you have to use micro-transaction coins to get it within the game. facepalm

    Pretty much puts me off buying the game at all. The mixed reviews don't help (apparently the shooting gameplay is excellent, but the open-world implementation is poor).

    No it doesn't. The game has been out for years so it should come as no surprise that you can pick it up for less in a sale along with the add-ons, especially so long after release. Many people will pay full price on Day 1 so they can play it when it's new and fresh and are happy to do so. It's the same with everything, not just games.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    What MaxMar5 is saying is that the only item really on sale is the goty not the season pass considering the discount is undoubtedly meant to favour the goty.

    Also Everybody who has fallout 4 since 2015 and still interested in more content wants the season pass but then, why would the publisher sell the pass at £5 when they can trick us into buying the season pass bundled with an extra digital copy of the game we already own for £14.99 especially since it will also boost the fallout 4 all time sales records thereby reflecting franchise viability to investors since fallout 76 ain't doing so hot.
