    What is this? A sale for ants? Almost got excited when I saw A Knight's Quest was on sale too too... because I had it mixed up with King's Quest. laugh

    Nothing worth getting, there is more stuff on PS3 and Xbox 360 to buy than anythng else. Last week I spent about £100 across PS3 and Xbox 360 stores buying up the delisted Need for Speed games that were not yet delisted.

    The thing that will force a purchase from me is if they announce the games are going to be delisted, as it is buy now or forever hold your wallet!

    When you have a backlog why bother to buy, no matter what the price is, and better wait for next sale, hopefully it be cheaper again.

    In this sale there isn’t anything I would be upset if it gets delisted

    Ride could get delisted out of all them, it was delisted before, but I have it.

    I'm guessing they're saving for E3/summer sale.

    Not sure why you'd feel the need (for speed) to buy soon to be delisted digital games at a surplus when each of those games' physical versions could be bought for dirt cheap. But - to each their own.

    Regarding delistings, it really only annoys me when DLC I don't own yet gets delisted - without any announcement - for a game I own. I got burned by Angry Birds Trilogy DLC getting delisted, and I decided to not let that happen again.

    The thing that pissed me off about that delisting (other than the obvious) was that each of the two DLCs only cost $5. At the time I only considered getting DLCs when they were on sale, but because those two never did go on sale, I never bought them. The stupid thing about that strategy (i.e., waiting for a sale) in that particular case is that a sale would have likely only saved me $5 total.

    Despite the possible "E3 sale" that should start next thursday, "Knight's Quest" looks to be fun (i was waiting a good offer on it for a time).

    I can't describe how disappointed I am with words
    I sometimes wonder, I'm hunting achievements or they're haunting me...

    I was looking to buy them a few times digitally but as you say they can be bought on disc for cheap, so kept putting it off, but I play on multiple consoles, so digital is better, and gets rid of clutter of discs and boxes, plus I prefer to own digital version if it has tonnes of DLC. They were only £12.99-£14.99, the actual games. The DLC cost the most and Most Wanted totalled about £35 on PS3. I had the game and one DLC on Xbox 360 but it was delisted too even though it was not one of the five. It is either a mistake for Undercover which is still for sale, or they just decided to delist it but keep servers open for now. It was all available on PS3 so bought it all on there.

    I hope these purchases I did made them take notice to in future give notice when delisting stuff especially digital only stuff like DLC or games like Halo Spartan Assault, that you can not get on disc.

    I am getting fed up of buying stuff for fear it could be delisted but does not, then not buying stuff that does get delisted.

    I want to feel secure not buying stuff to focus on backlog knowing they will let us know if any games or dlc will be delisted.

    I've been waiting for Darksiders 3 PC to go on sale forever now, has it ever been on sale before?

    I've seen it go on sale tons of times on steam and other PC stores, but seems like they forgot the microsoft store version exists.

    Not one Ubisoft game in this list in itself proves a major E3 / summer sale is imminent, keep your powder dry wink

    Prepping up for E3 by he looks of it, here's hoping for some 360 games that have not gone on sale for a few years now like:

    Enchanted Arms
    Eternal Sonata
    Infinite Undiscovery
    Star Ocean: The Last Hope
    Phantasy Star Universe

    Bad sale and not even a single BC 360 game.
    Sims 4 is $3,99 in the US and €13*99 in EU. What the hell?
