    Does anyone know if there’s a place to compare to past sales for a title? A lot of these were on sale in Feb, so I’m curious is the deals have gotten better or to keep holding out on some titles.
    You can click on an individual game on trueachievements. The hub will list news about the game, which includes sales.

    You can also look at price history at https://psprices.com/region-us/index?platform=XOne
    After you search a game, change the platform drop list to xbox. I think you have to do this every time you search

    xbdeals.net is another one that I’ve used before that is just for Xbox games, if you are on the desktop website it allows you to look at the historic price chart

    Well I finally bought ReCore. Played it with GP a while ago and did enjoy it a fair bit. Time to show some love in the hope of a sequel.
    Rock of Ages 3 is a great pick too. Not a popular series but great nevertheless.
    Also those who don't have it, you should get the full Hitman 2 package for that price.

    I can see why a lot of people are disappointed in this sale. I feel like there could have been a ton more games that would have made this spring sale worth it. I'd say snagging any of the Lego games or Disney that are in this sale could be worth it!

    Still deciding on that Lion king one to go with the disney collection I want to playthrough. At least it gives us all a chance to save up for the next!

    Might be time to finally get on that Borderlands 3.
    Buy your digital games/DLC from your favorite Mixer streamer, it really helps support them.

    Thank you both, very much! I really appreciate your replies and will be looking into these tools to determine whether I think this Spring Sale is worth it for some of the titles on my list. I'm sure they will both be very helpful!

    @PositiveDefinit, I knew looking up past sales articles was always an option, but it seemed far too tedious a pursuit until knowing for sure if there was a better way to check for a larger list of games.
    Halo 2 RIP 4/15/10.

    I got Witcher 3 GOTY. Never played it (only for a few minutes the Gamepass version). But 10€ is a fair price I guess. But I won’t buy any other game as Gamepass is good enough for most of my time :)

    Site not doing the quick completion lists any more?
    Most people are like slinkies... not really good for anything, but if you push them down the stairs it brings a smile to your face!

    I know this is late, but does anyone know which versions of the CoD games I need to buy just for the achievements? I don't need any cosmetics or bonus CoD coins/lootboxes/whatever. But I'd like to play the Single Player (and the Zombies).

    I have now gotten shop and earn points for the 2nd purchase I made on 29th March.

    Purchases made in the sale on 1st April should show on April 6th or 7th, unless they fix the lag, or maybe the sale will slow things even further.

    People have been mentioning it on twitter too to Major Nelson, so maybe the issue will escalate now.
    I tried clicking on the ad within the XBox Rewards app. Unfortunately, I did not get my 5K rewards points immediately and am still waiting. I got Yakuza: Like a Dragon Legendary Hero Edition which well exceeds the 50 USD requirement. That was yesterday and I'm still waiting for the points to show up.

    At almost 60 USD, it's still more than I would have liked to pay. But I picked up Yakuza: Like a Dragon Legendary Hero Edition.
    I think that you'll like it - it's really hilarious.
    I’m sure I will. I’ve been playing the series ever since it came out on the PS2. My favorite is the spin-off, Ishin! (2014). I’ve played the other games on the PS2/3/4. But I’ve really been impressed by the Series X & Like a Dragon’s got Smart Delivery & should look fabulous.

    Yup. Contacted them today about it.
    Should get it counted today or tomorrow, if made the purchase on 1st April. Their systems seem to be 5 days slow atm. It should be instant but their usual max time frame is 3 days, so their systems need serious attention.

    Microsoft did have major outage on 1st April too. I could not unlock achievements for a bit, then they all unlocked all at once later.
    think was broken for evryone seems to be fixed now

    I did--the day before yesterday. I bought by clicking on the offer on the XBox Rewards app. Still no points and, when I look at the offer, it says, "0/50."

    I was not impressed during the free weekend but it’s possible it picks up quite a bit later on. The problem with it is that there are about a million quality, cheap titles that compete with it.

    the usual Xbox sales problem where you buy games in said sale this time Spring and non are added to the amount needed for the reward.
    i see others have had same problems and some are saying a delay of several days before amount spent shows up.
    5 days for two purchases for me now and nothing.
    bit the bullet and bought couple Lego games and the Disney lion king/Aladdin so over the required amount.

    had similar happen last few sale/rewards some games just never counted.
    i would have hoped MS/Xbox would have resolved these bugs by now.

    started Disney game but waiting to see if reward amount updated for Lego games as will ask for refund if not.

    anyway grump old fart's moan over!
    take care all and stay safe
