    The games that don't have prices listed... when I click buy they do not appear to be on sale.
    There are a handful of games that are only on sale in the UK/EU - there may be a publisher sale yet to be announced that we've picked some sales up from.
    Oh okay, thanks.

    Silent Hill HD Collection is a terrible port/'remaster' of two amazing games - but I'd still grab it for this price if I didn't have the disc. If I wanted to get SH2/3 on PS2 I'd be looking at £18 for SH2 and £15 for SH3.
    Bad is an understatement. Prolly worst port made. Even on sale I say skip. Can get the PC versions pretty cheap and those have the original voice overs. Just sayin
    I've only played SH2 of that collection so far, and it seemed fine to me. Think I heard that SH3 is the worst of the ports though.

    Same here my friend, every time I'm hopeful
    I waited and waited and then just went for it at 19.99... COMPLETELY worth it, its 20 bucks very very well spent toast

    I really need these bundles to stop bundling and for them to also sell the DLC separate. I already own the entrée but I want the desert. ??
    You mean you own the main course and want the dessert... I assume. wink

    I got tired of waiting and found a physical copy for $9. You guys might wanna do the same. Price of this game should be $20 to start.
    Good call, I’ll start browsing

    Noticed Faery on here...are they grouping 360 with XBone now?
    When the Ultimate Sale went live people noticed MS uploaded their backward compatible games on the main Microsoft Store. Someone mentioned this might be a sign of something because the extended support of the Xbox 360 will end in April 2021. There is an implication MS might remove the OG/360 store which could affect purchases on 360 consoles and content / patches for non BC games. Even live functionality.
    Hold up what? Where did you read support of the xbox 360 will end in April 2021?

    I think there is a sale according to xbox.com but not sure why it hasn't been picked up yet?

    I'm wondering where they are also... Going to the Sales page I do notice before I apply the 360 filter there are 2 DLCs for a 360 game showing there but when I use the filter they are not showing under Xbox 360. Scrolling down the 1st page of X1 filters I see some other 360 game called "Asteroids & Deluxe", at least the image says it's 360. There is no achievement page for it on the site here though and the store link appears to go to the X1 store instead of 360. Does this mean there are other 360 games not being put into the correct filter now and if the links are going to the X1 store can they not be purchased and played on 360 anymore? Editing to add there is another game on the first page with a 360 box art called "Bloodforge" with no achievement page and an X1 store link also. I'm not going through 7 pages of X1 games to find others. I only want the list of 360 that are on sale :(

    Why hasn’t ya put up a thread for 360 sales yet? Usually they have it up shortly after the Xbox one sales.

    Dude something super weird is going on.

    You'll notice that Faery: Legends of Avalon is listed above. I think this is because its BC. But none of non-BC games got picked up.

    https://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/gold

    According to the Xbox site, the following 360 games are on sale:

    Rotastic
    Things on Wheels
    Faery: Legends of Avalon (*listed above)
    Black Knight Sword
    Destroy all Humans! Path of the Furon
    MX v. ATV Alive
    Rocket Riot
    Spongebob Squarepants: Underpants Slam!

    Hope someone can figure it out soon. I rely on TA exclusively for sales info and hope to keep it that way :)
