    It's rather a Golden Shower Sale. Nothing interesting in matter of prices, same old ones as usually. Microsoft doesn't know the 'the more it's old, the less it's expensive' thing.......
    I didn't think Microsoft could set the sales price for most of these titles (except of course for the games under their own 1st party studios, like Hellblade and Bleeding Edge, which are pretty cheap anyway. Also, they're on Game Pass). Maybe I'm wrong.

    And to be fair, there weren't a whole lot of new game releases in the last 12 months, so it's hard to put different titles on sale when there aren't different titles to choose from. Also, games that don't go on sale, again, feels like that's a publisher's decision, not Microsoft's. Perhaps I'm wrong. Sorry to argue, I know how much people of the internet don't like to be challenged toast

    Challenge me! laugh Yes you're right, it isn't MS' choice for sales, I took a big shortcut to express myself. I knew it was third companies' choices, but even if the term is different, the content isn't: companies don't want to lower the prices with time. Paying Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2008, not remastered!) for $30, no thanks!

    Wow...about comment that I was surprised by a random mid week/event sale and then find nothing in the selection....buuuuuut, what a gem. I'd wanted to buy a digital version of PvZ just to add to the library. Had it price marked for a long time and given the sale history, didn't really ever expect to see it on sale, let alone at $4! I want to think the EA play/GP merge has something to do with that, but who knows.

    I don't think I've ever seen the first Garden Warfare on sale for the XB1. I waited for it to go on sale for years, but now that it's finally on sale I already have it on GamePass. laugh

    Is Shenmue 1&2 ever gonna come down in price for windows 10 roll
    Every week I hope for that or the Windows version of Yooka-Laylee to go on sale and every week I'm disappointed. Getting to the point now where I might just slap down the full price.
    Don't do that you gotta wait it out will be more special when it finally does. You better believe when I see Ashen for 50% off again its going to make my whole week. Sales just tick that box of joy.

    You are wrong, Cyberpunk has not been on sale before.

    But you can now post your comment every time Cyberpunk is on sale “as always”.

    Nope, just quoted you again. You definitely said it is the same stuff without bothering to check if there was anything on the list that hadn't been on sale before.

    Code Vein is a good game for those that like the Souls style. Got a bit of a Japanese style to it

    Ok, then your comment is just as unnecessary as I thought
