Games at their lowest ever price in the Xbox Black Friday Sale

    One simple addition to this article would be to add a column to the table with the previous lowest price. That would make it easy to see if a title is at an all time low or just matching a previous sale price, negating the need for splitting the data into 2 tables (lowest price ever/matched lowest price).

    It would also help identify prices that are at a lowest in specific regions too as it appears the %age discount can differ from region to region.

    Hmm, at this point I've still got to go through the entire sale, will just look at the full list article I guess.

    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?

    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.
    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.

    TA have a database of sale prices (similar to storeparser), so I wasn't expecting you to take me up on that challenge. Instead you provided a list of games, but you didn't prove the price for any of them (a link to a Major Nelson sale article for example). So let's take a look at that list:

    Witcher 3 - $7.99 (80% off)
    Anthem - NOT ON THE LIST
    A way out - NOT ON THE LIST
    Assetto corsa - $5.99 (80% off)
    Star Wars Battlefront II - NOT ON THE LIST (although the bundle is for $7.99 (80% off))
    Call of Duty Ghosts bundle - NOT ON THE LIST
    Black Ops III bundle - NOT ON THE LIST
    infinite warfare (Digital Legacy) - $31.99 (60% off)
    Control - $11.99 (70% off)
    Darksiders (Blades & Whip) - $19.99 (80% off)

    So you are not off to a good start. Now these are the prices you claim you have seen them for in previous sales (half the price of this sale)

    Witcher 3 - $3.99 (90% off)
    Assetto corsa - $2.99 (90% off)
    infinite warfare (Digital Legacy) - $15.99 (80% off)
    Control - $5.99 (85% off)
    Darksiders bundle (Blades & Whip) - $9.99 (90% off)

    I'm sorry, I've had a look and cannot find any of these games at the prices you claim they have been. You seem absolutely certain Darksiders Blades & Whip has been below $19.99 - 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!! - so let's explore that:

    What is interesting about that list, is that it was the lowest price in the 2019 Black Friday sale, but in the 2020 Black Friday sale it had been cheaper just once before in the spring. For 2021 Black Friday I have shown $19.99 is its lowest price.

    You try and take the moral high ground, and then you yourself resort to name calling - (not HolyHalf levels of dumb though). You realise it is not name calling when it has been proven to be true. You haven't proved I am dumb (so that is name calling). But I have shown you are a bullshitter.

    The Witcher 2 ... at $2.99
    It has been cheaper, though. Was free for a while(while it has been a GWG, I'm not talking about that).
    You win! Even if it was 99% off in this sale, $0 is still less than half the price. It can never be at a lower price, and it can only be at the previous lowest price if it is given away again.

    Ten Titles Added To Backwards Compatibility - I made sure I picked up the NA and EU versions, as all I had was the censored AU version.

    Doesn’t change the fact a follow up was unnecessary for over half the site
    The great thing is that almost all the news stories are not relevant for over half the site, so that's no reason to not run them clap

    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.
    And I was defending the value I find in these articles that help us find the best deals, not implying that you were part of the "meh" brigade. smile

    Agree with others that have suggested the list is split into two - I know Jack can do this, cause he is amazing with code :)

    1. Games at their lowest price (because we may have missed it before when it was this cheap many sales ago)
    2. Games cheaper than they have ever been before (because maybe they have hit the price point we were waiting for, but didn't notice it in such a long list of other games)

    Is Watch Dogs Legion worth it at 75% off?

    I like the concept of this, though I’d like to be able to separate between at previous best and lower than previous best.

    Wondering if I should bother getting Risk of Rain. Seems like a fun title but I'm unsure if the gameplay would be enjoyable enough to get the completion out of them.

    So tempted to buy the Silent Hill HD collection. I mean, I heard so many bad things about how badly executed it is and I probably shouldn't but on the other hand I absolutely love those 2 games and I neither have a PS2/first gen Xbox anymore nor am I a person who enjoys playing on their pc...

    You people will argue about anything. You'd think gamers would be playing games or something....

    The eponymous Grand Theft Megalodon Shark Cash Card. I don't know if the 84.99 USD is the lowest price but you can't get much lower than this morally bankrupt offering from a company that once knew how to design great games. redface
