    Like 30 games from my wishlist on sale and almost every single one I've either seen at a lower price in previous sales or the discount is so small I'd rather wait. These big sales are always a let down imo

    Vampyr Win10 not on sale. Keeeeeek.
    The steam version on PC is on sale at the Fanatical games website for an all time low of $9.19 though. You can claim the code on steam.
    For xbox achievements you need win store version, steam version is "useless".
    Any problem solved is a new problem made.

    came here expecting dbd sales

    left disappointed
    It hasn’t been that long since they were on sale.
    In septembre all DLC was 50% off in the Microsoft store.
    And during the Halloween sale from Dead by Daylight all survivors/killers were 50% off if bought with Auric Cells in the DBD store ingame.

    That is true but I played the Xbox version for Xbox achievements and the steam version for steam achievements as well.

    What a waste smile. You could have played Xbox version and Win10 version for 2000gs.

    That is okay. I have hundreds of games on my backlog on Xbox to gain points from and getting achievements on steam is nice as well.

    Besides I got my Vampyr steam version via a bundle on humble bundle monthly along with 11 other games so it didn't cost that much.

    So non-bc 360 games are definitely left behind for sales i guess
    They should do us a favor and permanently cut the prices of all 360 content by 60-70% of their current prices.
    While I agree, it's not that simple. "They" (I assume you mean Microsoft) can't just cut the prices, because they'd still have to pay the full price to the developers. It's the developers who need to cut the prices. Some of them do, most of them don't.

    You also have to consider that every sales event means extra exposure. If they just permanently reduce the prices, they'll sell less units. People are suckers for "special deals."
    I hear that toast.

    But if anyone still hasn’t picked up rbi 20 $5.99 is the lowest I think it will ever get.
    Is that series finally any good? It's been terrible the couple times I've tried it.
    I couldn’t jump on board with any of the past ones but 20 is really good and fined tuned and easy to play. I’d give it a shot.

    Win 8 Game Sale

    Halo Spartan Assault €1.04 66% off
    Halo Spartan Strike €1.04 66% off

    Steam GFWL Sales

    Tekken X SF 80% off €27.99 -> €5.59
    F1 2011 75% off €3.99 -> €0.99
    Flat out Ultimate Carnage 80% off €18.99 -> €3.79
    Lost Planet 2 80% off €19.99 -> €3.99
    Lost Planet Colonies 80% off €14.99 -> €2.99
    Resident Evil Orc 80% off €27.99 -> €5.59
    Star Wars the Clone Wars 65% €16.79 -> €5.87
    Battle Stations Pacific 80% off 8.99 -> 0.89

    Do note that these are the PC stacks of these games and you need a pc running GFWL to earn achievements tied to them.

    GFWL is only installable through a local install package available for download you have to Google yourself for this but the first result usually has it

    Note: Lost Planet Colonies is the same stack as on the console and are crossplatform so it's possible to boost online achievements with your Xbox 360/X1/Series since this game is backwards compatible but runs alot smoother on PC

    Edit: all but RE Orc have single use keys

    This is the exact reason i cant bring myself to buy XII, i brought X on release for £45 i think it was due to it being my all time favourite game, XII is a fantastic game, however the price tag is absurd on xbox for some reason...

    Not sure about XII, but the X remake came out 7 years ago on the PS3 & 5 years ago on the PS4—unlike the X1 version that’s only been out a year & a half. The Countdown sales prices are better than anything you would have seen on the PS3 & 4 a year & a half after release.
