    Last week Microsoft didn't put the sales up until Tuesday and then they were not even discounted until a day or two after that still. Hoping it won't be the same again. I can't do new systems due to very tiny bandwidth limits so 360 games are all I care about. I can't buy from the X1 store from my 360 console -_-

    I really recommend Aven Colony and Everspace, they were on Gamepass a long time ago and now they left. Its good that they are finally on sale, I'm gonna buy them both and hunt the last couple of achievements I had left on them. Aven Colony is a great citybuilder game and Everspace is just a fun roguelike space shooter

    I can't believe Monster Sanctuary is already on Game Pass. Was super psyched for this game; would have totally paid the US equivalent of £14.39.
    I mean, you still can. Nothing stopping you from supporting a developer you were planning to give money to anyway, and you get to keep it after it exits Game Pass. toast
    Fair point, and after actually playing it a bit I intend to do just that. Well worth it, especially with the extra 20% off. Starbound meets Pokemon? Uh... yes, please. 😁
    Technically you are supporting them by downloading it on gamepass, that's if they get a snippet per download or per hours of playtime.
    Oh for sure, I understand just downloading and playing the game through Game Pass is supporting them. The deals are already made to compensate them up front, based on usage, sometimes by even helping to pay for some or most of development, whatever else, etc.

    I was simply saying if you were intending to buy the game anyway, its inclusion shouldn't stop you. I didn't have to buy Tetris Effect Connected, but wanted to be able to keep it after it left the program and also show them thanks for finally bringing the game to Xbox. toast

    I'd like to know as well. Apparently the game crashes non-stop.
    Don't bro me if you don't know me.

    Be warned if you are thinking about getting Ticket to Ride or the DLC, there is a bug which causes the game to crash on startup. My game worked for a couple of days now it won't start on either the PC or the XB1, have reinstalled and tried 2 different PCs and XB1s with the same issue. Looking at the forums others have run into this issue as well.

    I guess that's cool, just buy it at a good discount of like 70% and more, since publishers have a tendency to screw over early adopters with high prices while newcomers get the sweet deals like 75% off on complete edition and you wait forever for season pass to drop at a good price.

    Xbox 360 games "on sale" are on the Deals with Gold section here starting from Final Exam down: https://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/gold#dealswithgold

    Just like last week though there is no discount applied to any of them so they are not actually on sale still. Getting tired of this... 2nd week in a row without a listing and with the games not actually being discounted correctly :(

    Why are GRAW & GRAW 2 frequently on sale but the newer game (GRAW 2) is always less than GRAW 1? Why isn’t GRAW 1 less than GRAW 2 or at least the same price?

    Is the forsaken dlc all you really need for destiny 2? Or are the other dlc somewhat required?
    Crackdown 3!

    This is confusing.
    Just wait until the X/S games are thrown in to the mix.

    As of a few months ago, Microsoft treats anything that can run on the Xbox One (or Series X|S) as a regular Xbox store entry, whether it's an OG, 360, One, or Series game. Since TA's sales articles are generated from a Microsoft source, the BC games are now automatically included in TA's list, too. TA didn't change it, Microsoft did.

    IMO, it's not that big of a deal.

    The deal and problem is that TA appears to have stopped posting the non-BC sales for 360.

    1. That's not what the original poster asked about. My response was to his question.

    2. Microsoft hasn't listed any non-BC 360 deals yet (nothing on xbox.com or majornelson.com). What are you expecting TA to post?
