Xbox Sale Roundup: December 29th, 2020

    As a connoisseur of bad games and low hanging fruit, even this sale has nothing for me. I guess I could buy Stab3 to keep my streak going...

    Vaporum seems cool, that ach list tho and NO ONE has completed it (only like 100 have played but still) and Shadow Tactics is really cheap... actually more tempted by these games at these prices than anything from the "big" recent sales tbh.

    Tired of having to switch regions to play games.

    I dont get why lego games are so damn cheap in the US compared to the UK or Sweden.

    They are British games based upon a Danish property, yet we have to pay double the amount sometimes to play the games.

    Havent bought a game from the British or Swedish store in ages. Publishers are really screwing us over on prices.

    Ultimately that money is being collected by easily the most American-based parent company in gaming (AT&T, who although they have plenty of international divisions through their Warner Brothers and other entertainment divisions are primarily an American-focused internet/cellular company), so I think that has something to do with the inflated international prices if they are repatriating most of that income and paying the taxes on that. As for why they wouldn't just reinvest their internationally collected funds in those international subsidiaries? Well, AT&T has become known for truly poor executive level performance in recent years, so that might explain that laugh

    I'm starting the think I may have to pay full price for the Black Flag dlc. Have I been missing it when it goes on sale? Anyone remember the last time they seen it on sale?
    Pretend inferiority and encourage their arrogance.

    I bought the Xbox 360 version of Freedom Cry for $3 on Oct 6th according to my email purchase notifications. Pretty sure the X1 version was on sale around then too, I recall seeing it either a bit before that or the same time I think.

    ..... hoping TA posts the 360 sale again this week....

    Your welcome, sorry you missed it! If it helps at all, I have seen the X1 version on sale a lot more in the last 6-12 months than the 360 version so maybe it'll come up again soon. Good luck!

    If there is one thing I can't stand in these sales, it repetitive discount with AAA publisher games like Ubisoft, EA or Warner. if we didnt buy it at that price the first 3 times, try and increase the discount or something especially for non-US sales.

    Believe me, Black Flag DLC isn't worth even $1 because of those annoying full synchronization with shitty bugs everywhere.
    I remember when I playing Freedom Cry, In every second I wish those damn achievements unlock faster so I can delete the game and get rid of it forever.
    After AC III, AC Black Flag is worst AC game I ever played and really never want to play again while I played AC Brotherhood and Revelations over 3 times in different accounts and devices and still enjoy replaying those.
    I wish I had money to escape from fucking Iran.
