    Hmm. In the bundle section there is Valley of the Yetis for €8.99. And in the DLC section there is Valley of the Yetis for €7.49. Anybody understand the difference between these two? Does the bundle have something extra?

    It doesn't need to be bullet hell to be a shmup though, that's like a subgenre. ;)

    When i go to buy Scrabble it says it's not currently available?
    It's a licensing thing. Change your location to USA and you will be able to buy it

    Well, it'd be nice if it were that easy but this is one of those need to buy gift cards situations, won't accept any other form of payment. Cheers for the tip though.

    I see a lot of people complaining about the 360 sales being in the article.
    First of all, they are the 360 Backwards Compatible games, not all 360 games. And the reason why they are in the article is that those marketplace pages ARE classified as Xbox One games on the store.
    As seen here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/halo-3/bsxzvk24cmr3 | Available on Xbox One
    So the article auto-generates its sales from what is considered Xbox One, and since they are considered Xbox One on the Microsoft Store, they are added to the article.
    I know this isn't ideal, but I am just trying to explain why it happens. These Xbox One marketplace versions of the 360 games only got prices on the 1st of August. So it is a recent change on their side.
    However, atm the devs are busy doing other work. So I don't have an ETA as to when something can be done about this. As there are a few things that will need doing that will then allow it to be recognized as 360.
    For the time being, please be patient about it, we are aware of it and they will get to it when they can.

    Finally they put Assassin's Creed II on sale. On marketplace it still in retail price. This shows that the X360 marketplace and the X1 store have different prices.

    Am I the only one who doesn’t like the 360 games being mixed in? I know they’re backwards compatible and they merged the Xbox store. But I think they should still be separated. It could get confusing with some games being on both platforms. Plus it could give people the impression that a game is an Xbox One title when it never was. Just my two cents.
    T Together is fine imo
    Thanks, guys!

    It's more expensive than the single bits have been too. Got base game and alien DLC for $3 each and the horde DLC for $4. Ripoff for $15 the game is the most bare-bones RTS ever.

    Jesus it's going to take 60 minutes just to comb thru this list. I get why the 360 stuff is added now but its really getting crazy. Can we please get the "not interested" button right under the "wish list" button? Would really love not seeing these Assasins Creed and Tom Clancy crap every single week. Just let me block it already. Been asking for 3 years... whats the problem? roll

    How is AC Rogue Remastered still £12.49 when it says 67% off, but its the same price it usually is when its 50% off?
    Because it's 67% off in the US at $9.89.
    So it must just be 50% for other places it's just the percent listed doesn't change

    So if I buy the Hitman GOTY bundle, does that give me the legacy levels for Hitman 2?
    Yeah it shows the legacy levels listed as included.
    Ahh, that makes sense, thanks for letting me know!!

    Can someone explain how I get to the game reviews? They seem to be removed from the website store.

    AC Black Flag is the only title i have not played yet... DLC on sale too. Might have to grab this one finally... though i dread all MP achievements.
    If I went 'round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.

    Does Hitman require some external content (from another game) to be completed or was that a different game?
