    the "ultimate" sale, but ultimately there's nothing i want.

    And an ultimate sale would see every game on sale, now that's what i call ultimate.

    I love the psychology behind Xbox Rewards.

    "You mean I could get four whole dollars for free if I only spend fifty five?* Deal!"
    *CAD offer, I don't know what the USD reward is

    $5.99 for US.
    $14.99 for CA.

    Didn't realize the exchange rate was over 100% now.

    I knew Kingdom Come would go on sale again so I didn't bother trying to finish it before it rotated out of Game Pass. smile
    One of the major reasons I buy games I played on Gamepass is I didn't finish them.

    It looks like this will be the case for Kingdom Come Deliverance as well. I wasn't planning on buying it since I have the base version on PC but the Royal edition is also much more expensive there so I decided to get it for my Xbox One X instead.

    You're complaining about not being able to play games which you acquired by dubious means and you're not supposed to own to begin with, because you're too lazy to download them? You sure have a strange view of the world.
    Since you are living in a country that always got full support I doubt you understand how the 360 Xbox Live work for anyone who doesn't live on the privileged west. Outside of a few first world marketplaces we get the fraction of the content but pay the same price. 360 users in other countries didn't make profiles in different regions because they wanted to. It is because the content is simply not available here and never will be. If it is unacceptable for you that I pay the same money despite I earn less to get the for example the Mass Effect 2 DLCs or games that were never officially released here then you can freely hate me of course.

    And using VPN to bypass the completely illogical region lock system is not the same as it was years ago. The only thing I'm complaining about is if they kill the 360 marketplace not only a lot of online only content will disappear forever but all the things I bought and downloaded get an expiration date until my console lasts.
    While it's unfortunate that Xbox Live and the marketplace isn't very good in your country, it doesn't change the fact that you're not meant to buy content from other regions. If you do, you'll have to accept the limitations and annoyances that come with it.

    I don't hate you for it and never said anything along those lines. Everyone can do what they want. But you really have no basis to complain about it afterwards. If I import something from China or USA which isn't available here in Germany, then I can't expect any support for it, either.

    They say 2020 ultimate sale, but I'd be very surprised is there aren't more sales before the end of the year

    I just Google'd it and realized that Prototype remasters and/or bundle are not going on a sale since the start of 2019, while it's on sale like every 2 or 3 weeks on PS Store. Anyone noticed that?

    Why almost all of them are gold sale? I remember in last two years all of xbox big sales are for silver accounts too and gold accounts have a additional separate deals but now everything is for gold members. why?
    I waiting from starting summer until now for this summer sales to buy games with $10 - $15 prices and now I have to pay $9.99 just for gold so I can buy one of these?

    Maybe you guys thinking gold account is cheap enough for everyone to pay $9.99 every month but in some countries like my born place you have to pay more than 20x price of every single $1 and $9x20 is not cheap for me with my hard earned shitty local money.
    Also that's why I can't get most of online achievements except when microsoft have $1 offer for gold.
    Get 48 hours gold codes for 30 T
    I can't do that because 48h and 14 days Gold cards is for new accounts only.
    My account is not new and I used gold membership a few times before.
    Although I know I can create a new account and set it as my home account in Xbox One so I can play online in my main account with a 48H or 14 days Gold card but for buying games I don't think it's recognize my main account as a Gold member. my money is already in my main account and unfortunately Microsoft doesn't allow transfer money between accounts.
    I wish I had money to escape from fucking Iran.

    Where can I find this promotion? I haven't seen it anywhere. I have been waiting for some kind of punch card to show up in my ms rewards.

    Have you tried it? I use trial codes (two days, two weeks, etc.) on my alt account whenever I need to boost a 360-only game. The time expires, and when I need to do it again, I just use another code on the same account and it works. The ones I use are usually old cards that came with 360 games - I saved them over the years since I didn't have a use until more recently.

    Edit: I guess I've never tried it for buying things, so I can't speak to that. Sorry for not reading more thoroughly.

    Can anyone tell me about Rocket Knight, its cheap as dirt but it has only one achievement that isn't a rare one. Is something wrong with this game?

    I've only seen it on the rewards app on the console, at least in Canada. One of the big tiles next to the "Build you Collection" movie bundle and "Summer Spotlight" offers. I have not seen it anywhere on the internet yet.

    I've been dying to get the Spyro Reignited Trilogy! I've got Year of the Dragon (and maybe Gateway to Glimmer as it was known in the UK) but I really wanna experience the new style, and I was never able to play the first game. And Saints Row IV Re-Elected, too. Hopefully the sale lasts long enough so I can grab em.
    Cogito ergo sum.
