    While PlayStation may offer bigger discounts, do they have a points reward scheme in place? I'd estimate I earn around £10 a month via rewards with Xbox, I'm able to use these rewards for sale items. This should be taken in to account.

    If Ubisoft has a sale every two weeks than why can't they ever discount Far Cry Instincts Predator? Every other Far Cry is discounted.

    Considering the reward system isn't available in many countries, it would be really crappy if they sacrificed sales for it. Then again the Xbox One reveal showed that Microsoft really don't care about other regions outside the NA and a few Eu countries so I wouldn't be shocked

    They don’t discount Far Cry 4 or the DLC anymore either.

    Horse Racing 2016...... highly recommended this masterpiece 🙄🙄
    I was lucky PETA didn't kick my doors in, I was whipping the horses so much.
    Even managed to send few to French pie maker in the Sky.
    Button bashing at it's finest

    I'll probably get the season pass for Overcooked 2, since it's still on game pass.

    Decided to go for A Pixel Story since I've never seen it so cheap and it's been on my wish list for a while. I know there's an unobtainable and the completion for some of the achievements are pretty low, but I'll take that as a challenge.

    Debating on Sayonara Wild Hearts…any thoughts? toast
    I played the first few levels and enjoyed it, I'm definitely gonna grab it for that price. I'm not sure how easy the full thousand is, kinda hard to judge with how few have played it. Seems doable though!

    Both FC4 Gold and the SP (look for Valley of the Yetis) is on sale right now.

    Greedfall DLC was good and had reasonable price from release, and now it's already on sale. Nice.

    Can anyone advise on how difficult Disintegration is to complete?

    Also Where the Bees Make Honey - how easy is it? I’ve heard it’s terrible

    I'd say go for it if you like Point and Clicks - good humour in the game and easy completion with the walkthrough
    Too much work, not enough games

    Bees is a super easy completion, but you're right it's absolutely terrible

    I swear...every game I have on my wish list on xbox never goes on sale, but ill go check steam and psn and boom, game is 2 bucks...
    YES, EXACTLY.

    Switch, PS, and Steam seem to have vastly deeper sales than Xbox does, and I don't know why. Well, I'm sure I can guess, but I can't imagine these games sell MORE at higher prices on Xbox, do they...?
    My theory? They don't have to. Xbox is doing insanely good right now. Steam is... well steam. But Xbox made something like 350 million last year. They just need enough sales to keep you slightly interested, but not sales so deep as to get your attention. They already have it. I could be 100% wrong. I have no idea how the financials smaller motivations of a 1 trillion $ company are other than "make more money."
    It's the publisher's decision to put games on sale, not MS.
    Also Xbox made way more than 350m USD last year. That would be a terrible number. They made over 15bn in one (fiscal) year.

    I guess with this price it's time to take the dive! More likely you will be sorry about the wasted time than the money. wink (Not judging the game, haven't tried it. At least not yet.)

    One of the few games that has a demo available, give it a try.

    Going to pick up a few of the cheaper fast completions. smile I’ve been spending hours upon hours with Hitman 2 and the end is still nowhere in sight so games like that’ll be nice for picking up the slack afterwards.

    I will never, ever get over how much The Sims 4 packs cost, even on sale. The gameplay is neat (because of course they stripped lots from the base game to make money with the packs! Aha!) but without added achievements, and kinda.....not that much replayability, it's worthless. I can't believe I actually bought the vampire one a year ago; I played it twice. I've since played them all on PC (don't ask rock) but it's the CC that iirc is absent from Xbox 1 that really makes The Sims worthwhile. So......... why? Why, EA? Why?
    Cogito ergo sum.

    Last sale I asked for an Asdivine game that wasn't previously a free title. This sale they oblige.
