    Fake news, everyone said it was the same stuff at higher prices. The comment section is quite clearly full of incredibly educated individuals and they couldn't possibly be wrong.... right....

    No pointless at all. In fact it makes an excellent point to the “meh” brigade who claim week after week that it has all been on sale before for less.

    I got it as a GWG title and what I did play of it I enjoyed it.

    No Man's Sky has been $19.99 at least twice before. Not the cheapest it's been
    It might not be in your region, but It's the cheapest it's ever been in the UK and Europe if I'm not mistaken. I don't think there is a way to highlight the regional differences though.
    I mean site staff is literally saying it might not even be cheapest in your region these are just games that haven't been cheaper in one of the regions they cover. It's no wonder the lists are almost identical and most people are getting the same washed up sales

    Yes, imagine promoting sales of goods which have never been available cheaper roll
    Actually I've seen quite a few with even better prices before. It is true, some games are at their lowest, but some have seen at least halve the price of this sale. I guess it is easier to put that title now that there is no "storeparser" anymore.dancetoast

    Nobody likes a sore loser. And I hate bullshitters.

    For every game on this list you show me at half the sale price above, I will show you 10 games on the list at the same price or higher.

    You don't need store parser when you have TA:

    This game is unusual as the cost of the base game went up in the US when they added more content. I remember them increasing the price of the Fallout 4 Season Pass by $20 when they added more content. GOYT and "Complete" editions of games have also been released at a higher price than the base game, so it's not unheard of.

    Despite that, I'm not seeing $19.99 once, let alone twice. But keep making shit up (or believing others that have not proved their claims) if you think that will help you prove your point.

    If you're going to make a claim, can you back it up by giving at least 1 example?

    I'm not saying you're wrong, I wouldn't know, I just hate this claim making.

    I don't get why I'm being recently quoted when all I said is how this is a pointless article cause the list is like 80-90% similar to the main black friday one already, kinda seeing a lot of unrelated responses to my post since then.

    I actually appreciate this post!

    Only improvement I would recommend is breaking up the stats into; "lowest prices ever" & "equal to previously lowest prices ever". Working title obviously.

    But as someone who only buys games if they are "lowest prices ever", seeing games at the same price as previous lows just tells me I need to wait longer.

    But I really appreciate this step in the right direction

    Thank God someone else said it. It baffles me the number of people in the comments of every sale article who have to loudly proclaim how it's crap. Nothing impresses them lol.

    I must've missed something or details on how this article works, because Guardians of the Galaxy is the cheapest it's ever been, if I'm not mistaken, and yet it's not on this list.

    Maybe there's a rule that it can't be on the list because it's too new?

    Just scroll through the list on XBox, look at how many are tagged “Owned” that you know you haven’t really played, profit…

    Backlogs are the biggest scam in video games.

    So you are reducing the scope of my coment and your reply to one game and one game only, while also failing to recognize that I acknowledge that there are games on the list that have their lowest price ever. And try to sound tough by adding name calling. Well I'm not going to reply with another insult just to show how much of a moron you can be, because you do that yourself alone quite well and it woulld be like beating a dead horse. And yeah like TA have never ever failed to include a discounted game on any list, that is why this is a community, so people can share the missing info and good stuff with the rest of the members and article writers who then include such items. Also if you are going to speak about regions then the title should have that disclaimer (depending on region -or watherver-) there is something called reporters/writers integrity (forgot how it goes and right now don't care about semantics). My comment is on the title, is incorrect and missleading, not the sale on whether or not it is good or garbage... And on that note:

    Ok, fair enough and a very valid inquiry. For starters this sale is "up to 67%" and some of the games featured have been on "up to 80/85%" (for example) sales. That alone should give a hint, but you asked for specifics, so I'll give a couple. Also funny to mention just noticed that Witcher 3 is included on the sale hub at a 80% discount. laugh
    For examples Anthem (BASE GAME) is at 60% discount at $8.99 and I bought Anthem legion of Dawn Edition at $7.something on a previous sale that also featured the base game at a $3 or $5 something range. Also Anthem is not inclued in this article list, go figure!
    -A way out is also at $8.99 and that game has been featured before at a lower price in the range of $5, almost bought it but decided against it when I heard it was joining game pass. Assetto corsa and Star Wars Battlefront II have also seen lower prices. in the 90% range discount and here are featured at 80%
    -Call of Duty Ghosts, Black Ops IIII, and infinite warfare bundles have also seen lower prices for same bundles. And I'm not 100% sure but I think Control also had a lower price once, like a 70% discount or something.
    And my favorite, The Darksiders bundle it was at $7.xx and $11. something and I still kick myself for failing to buy it TWICE!! and not making sure of checking out on the xbox cart. Have been sitting there on my wish list to remind me of the dumb mistake (not HolyHalf levels of dumb though)dance
    Edit: Just noticed that other games are in the 80% range. Also I don't care if a game or bundle have been featured to death before, as I'm finally getting that Bioshock bundle and I'm happy it is back (again).
