    I don’t wanna be “that guy” but it’s just the same games with the same prices again.
    And there is always “that guy” that is wrong about this every sale. Did you even look at the sale list before you posted your comment?

    Every sale some games are cheaper than they have ever been before. Otherwise the only way a game like Titanfall 2 could be $2.99 is if that was the price it was the first time it went on sale a few months after it was released.
    Believe me, I went through it all.
    That might be the case with US prices, certainly not UK prices.

    There really needs to be a note or a flag for games on sale that have no achievements. A few pop up every week or so.

    Also, Xbox OG games are not Xbox 360 games. They could also use the same flag.

    Thanks TA for the price alert on a few titles here. Got the alert well before this Sales post was generated.

    La-Mulana at $9 is tempting... can never have enough Metroidvanias in my backlog.
    Hey, you! Pipe down!

    LEGO® Marvel Collection EU: 29,99€
    LEGO® Marvel Collection US: $11,99

    Jesus fucking christ - wtf is this price policy? we europeans better switch to US storefront and buy games there much cheaper..
    Is there a way to purchase from the US/Canada store? There are quite a few titles here that are much lower in price (extra 50% I some cases).
    Of course there is and no need to change your xbox region ;)

    Buy an XBox US Dollar gift card for the amount you need to cover your purchase (remember to add around 10% for the sales tax that will be added on). I used g2a.com but you can use any site you prefer that will sell you USD cards.
    eg: if the game is $11.99 then you will need ~ $13.20 credit to buy it.

    Next go to redeem.microsoft.com and sign in if it does not auto log you in.
    Scroll to the bottom of the page and at the left it will show your region. Click the link and select United States from the list.
    Redeem your USD code.

    Now go to the xbox store and find the game you want.
    Make sure you sign in.
    Again, scroll to the bottom and if the region does not say United States, click it and change to the United States.
    Buy your game.

    You can even buy games that are no longer available in your region (I just bought the Hasbro Family Collection which is no longer available in the UK)

    Install and enjoy! :)
    I seriously recommend that you move to a state without a sales tax wink

    The fact that Indivisible is still that expensive is ridiculous.

    I might get the Titanfall games so I can support the devs. Also, to boost them

    Wow, so the Windbound devs fixed the broken achievements it looks like, nice can finally support them that game looks like a Zelda/Survival hybrid.

    What is with the sale prices of Call of Duty games? I just don't understand why the 5+ year old games digitally are so overpriced.

    First time Super Meat Boy Forever is discounted. Based on the reviews I'm not sure if it's worth it... Anyone play it and have an opinion?

    No, I just set my billing address on my account to a US address (I used a friends in Chicago but others have used a hotel's address in the US too). Probably why I got charged 10% sales tax as others have mentioned. Apparently Alaska has no sales tax if you want to try there.

    XOSX and XSXS are region free, except China. That even applies to Xbox and X360 BC games. Non-BC games is a different story as only some of them are region free.
