    I am always tempted to get Crash N Sane trilogy and DMC trilogy but never do
    Crash N sane trilogy is brutal! I’ve had the game for awhile and sunset vista in the 1st crash game is mind numbing & ultimately why I probably won’t see that bandicoot to safety.

    Don't forget Call of Duty, Spyro, Crash, etc. and the Blizzard games are partly on sale due to their company having awful people in it
    I don't care about any of that. All companies suck.
    It benefits the entire industry and people who play video games everywhere when a company rife with awful conditions for women and other similar issues gets addressed and the company is punished for their practices
    Activision & its affiliated companies are not consumer friendly unless it’s a COD game, and even at that are they really that supportive of COD fans? (Honestly not sure)
    I know they have brought out several games that were great but for one reason or another the games are no longer available. I know that in any Activision multiplayer game that I’ve played, I have encountered FAR more cheaters & hackers.
    The thing about fair conditions women? Yeah I’m ALL for that, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ITS NOT JUST WOMEN WHO ARE BEING MISTREATED!!!

    COD on "sale" 🤣 nothing about those prices makes me think it's on sale.

    Damn these CoD games are still way too expensive.
    I gave up on waiting for a decent price and just bought them on eBay for about €10 each...

    Gonna jump on INSIDE at that price but it reminds me I still need to get the final achievement in Limbo

    Have to say it is a bit obnoxious that Yonder was just re-released at full price for the new consoles, with literally the only change being 60FPS, and now they put the older version on sale lol.

    Kings quest maybe? Playstation has worse sales!
    If all pork chops were perfect, we wouldn't have Hot Dogs!!!

    I hope Microsoft enables the backwards compatibility program again, there's so many great original Xbox and 360 games that never got added during last gen.

    I played and beat King's Quest back in 2018 on my old account. It's a decent point and click adventure game, and obtaining the full 1800G isn't too difficult either, however, there's quite a few of missable achievements which isn't too bad. The overall story and how the character progresses is fantastic, it's definitely one of those games you can relax and chill out to.

    I know the first episode was free, but for that price why not get the complete series! I'm going to start it today! Thank you for the input.

    Xbox 360 game sales section is making itself scarce these days.
    Been that way for a long time now
    years
    There used to be decent sales for the console every so often during 2016-2019, but 2020 to now has been nothing but repeat sales or only a selection of 3-5 games.

    Blair Witch was cheaper in last sale - £8.74

    Although on PS4 the cheapest has been £11.24 with PS+. It seems that when games are in Game Pass they get the lowest prices as I guess most people do not buy them, but when they leave the prices are never as good.

    Also when checking the store, it says the deal is only for a day and not a week. Maybe it is being delisted? Or could be just a day as last chance sale before it leaves Game Pass? Or maybe price will drop to £8.74 tomorrow?

    Ugh... Everspace, why? I've been wanting to get it on Switch while it's on sale on the eShop but £17.99 there vs £3.74 here... hmm

    I always go on my 360 and check the sales there because I've noticed they don't appear on these sales posts sometimes, unless it's Backwards Compatible.

    i wish they would offer more arcade games or discount the ones that actually came out from 14-16

    But nonetheless your right wasn’t playing my Xbox much in 16 and 17 so I missed out on a lot

    Black Knight Sword, Rotastic, The Raven Ep 1-3 are all on sale. TA never shows 360 stuff anymore it seems and if they do it's only part of what is on sale and rarely everything :(

    Got the Panzer Dragoon remake thanks to getting a gift card today, I'm not expecting much from it but I guess it could be something brief to play.

    Found an unused gift card squirreled away last week. Might have to grab Civ.
