    Putting the grand theft in grand theft auto—the most ludicrously expensive item: On sale, it’s still almost 100 USD facepalm - Megalodon Shark Cash Card
    You'd be surprised how many people with more money than brains there are in the world. Might as well sell them in-game jewellery and other pointless crap. Can't even blame the devs, really...
    There’s a reason why there’s no GTA VI & may never be. Rockstar can rest on its laurels selling shark cards that cost more than GTA V. When a new console comes out, GTA V gets a technological face lift so Rockstar can peddle overpriced shark cards on the new gen. laugh

    Such a list and nothing to purchase this time round. Not surprised though, only have a few games with price alerts and the few that had them on this sale weren’t low enough to trigger. Suppose I didn’t even have to look at the list really but still gave it a quick glance.

    I'm tempted to get the Asterix XXL games, I've got the second one and I'm considering getting the first and third games if possible. Hopefully I can get them on Tuesday morning.
    Why get a life when as a gamer you live more lives than you can manage

    Add me to the list waiting for Ashen sale, haha. I had played it a while ago when it was on Game Pass, they took it off and I'd like to hop back on when it would go on sale some time. If not, not a problem, got quite the backlog atm - that'll be a bit stagnant now that I'm back in Mass Effect with the Legendary Edition right now. There's a few games on this list that are decent pick-ups though.
    Now you're dead.

    Wonder if the accompanying Reward points quest will work?
    Not working for me. Spent over the required amount at the start of the sale, days later still showing £0 spent 😢

    Really? I'm the only person that hates themselves enough that they're looking forward to buying and playing this and will admit it publicly?

    Game looks interesting. But also quite pricey.
    Even at -50%, I am not sure...

    It's still too much money for a game that was critically panned and is a commercial disaster. Still, it used to be $80 CAD not too long ago and I am really curious to see how rough of a game it was to have seemingly caused the retirement of one of gaming's great minds.

    Toki. I used to play on the megadrive/genesis 20-25 years ago, might be good for a bit of nostalgia.
    I used to play it on the Atari Lynx! I'm old.

    Nice!!! This is definitely the best sale Xbox has had in a long time. With that said, I actually picked up a few games, and I'm happy with the price I paid for them. I ended up getting, Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition with all 7 DLC for $13.99, Mafia Definitive Edition for $23.99, and Saints Row The Third Remastered for $15.99. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the games offered in this sale, good job Microsoft.

    The ultimate game sale quest for spending $40 and getting 4000 rewards points is broken. It's showing $0 purchased for me and spending well over $40. Garbage app.

    Same here but it does show up after some time passes...that happened on the last punch card. They might wait to make sure people don't refund what they bought 🤑

    I bought 3 games a few days ago worth €32 and they added to the total. However I just spent the last €3 needed (€35 total here) and it hasn't updated at all. Hopefully it just takes a few more days and then works like the first few.

    Half the time I can't even get the app to launch! I had to contact support last time when I waited and waited and then the card left the app yet nothing happened. They edited the ones and zeroes though, had to do email tag.
    That said, it now launched and is saying $17/$40 for me.
    Now you're dead.

    Yeah I bought 30 dollars worth of games on Monday and am waiting for it to show that before I spend any more money...bought most of the collections (namco contra castlevania and the konami arcade)

    Anybody know if season passes count towards the Rewards promo of spending $40? Or is it strictly games themselves? I spent $40 a few days ago, but only $28 is showing in the app as of today. One thing I got was seasons 2-5 of King's Quest, but that was $5. Not sure if that's one of the things not counting, and also I don't know what the remaining $7 could be from.
    Hey, you! Pipe down!

    Did you buy them through the ultimate game sale tab on the Microsoft store? They will register correctly if you buy then from the tab...the rewards page just gives you a reload problem...bought kingdome hearts 3 days ago and it finally updated

    Some items listed here are not part of the official sale like the bridge constructor games didnt show up in that tab.

    Gonna pick up either RDR2, Watch Dogs Legion, Immortals or Mass Effect Remaster to snag the point off. Any suggestions on which one?
