    Appreciate this "best pricing" article and would love to see this for the larger sales Xbox puts on throughout the year.

    How is the outer worlds season pass not on sale and/or not 50% off yet? every other 12month+ season pass is now half price...

    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.
    I need to second this since no one is. It killed my motivation to check item by item after seeing an indistinguishable wall of text compared to the older general article. Breaking it up into sections would help identify those lightning in a bottle deals. Obviously this would be more time consuming but I think it'd serve the purpose of this specific kind of article a lot. I appreciate the idea, at least.

    I'm still trying to solve that mystery myself.

    Everyone should play The Witcher 2 atleast once in their life. Don't let the graphics and release date fool you.....it is fricking fantastic. And at $2.99 you have nothing to lose
    as someone who only played the third game (and loved it), will 2 feel similar?
    I've only played a bit of The Witcher 3 when I had gamepass, and yeah it feels quite similar. The combat is a bit clunky, but everything else feels real smooth. If you're unsure, you can check out a couple YouTube videos

    Why yes, I think I shall, thank you very much.
    I got it as a GWG title and what I did play of it I enjoyed it.
    And that's another good game I missed out getting for free because I got into the Xbox scene too late roll
    I swear it always makes me jealous when people talk about the GWG games they got in the past

    Absurd. Can’t believe they actually promote this garbage.
    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

    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.

    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
    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.
    Bought a PS4 that came with GTA and Last of Us to play the OG NMS. I picked up the Xbox version and have played the hell out of it. I can guarantee I didn’t get it when it was this cheap. That said, you’re bringing up one game out of 900+ according to the post. Doesn’t change the fact a follow up was unnecessary for over half the site

    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 agree, the state of games these days is terrible. They launch them all with glitches to be patched later once the Beta testers (customers) report everything wrong with it.
    It's more than just a game, it's a passion.

    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.
    Are you guys friggin delusional or something!? I never said anything about these black friday sales being crap or bad, like at all. Go quote the real whiners instead.
    I wasn't talking about you, lol. I was agreeing with what HolyHalfDead was saying about the negativity brigade we all always see.

    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).
    Anthem and A Way Out aren't in this article, so I'm not sure why they're relevent?

    Assetto I could find other times it was at 80% (Like here Xbox Spring Sale 2021), but I couldn't find any cheaper.

    Star Wars Battlefront 2 in this article is actually the "Celebration Edition", but for some reason it doesn't say it here. I can't find that edition any cheaper, but obviously the base game is often cheaper.

    That specific darksider 3 bundle has been 80% a few times now, but I can't find cheaper:
    Xbox sale round-up: September 14th, 2021
    Xbox Ultimate Game Sale round-up: July 23rd, 2021

    I can't be bothered to check Control, as the different versions confuse me to no end laugh

    I'm not trying to pick a fight here, I'm just legitimately after a tangible example of a game being cheaper in the past than in this article. I do agree with the comments from other users that this page should have been divided out into cheapest equal, and cheaper than ever before, as that's two very different things to consider.
    No God, know fear. Know God, no fear.

    Okay fine, I'll let you off with that. Just keep feeling many people here have completely misunderstood what I really meant.

    Besides I ain't complaining one bit, all the DLC for the Windows 10 version of Goat Simulator is finally on sale and I got it all for only £4.

    It has been cheaper, though. Was free for a while(while it has been a GWG, I'm not talking about that).

    Please ignore the nay sayers. This is a fantastic idea for an article and i would very much like to see this again on a weekly basis, especially for the bigger sales

    Maybe for smaller sales just put at the bottom of the OG sale article?
    Also as others have said, maybe a lowest price/same as lowest price differential.

    Come on u guys. Trashing sales each week for prices not low enough or game omissions is what brings a lot of us on this website together. Why not let loose and join in the fun?
