    Still waiting for Zombie Army 4 DLC to go on sale.
    I've been waiting on season pass 4 to go on sale for a while. It doesn't seem like the dlc goes on sale very often though.

    Is there a way to filter by rating? I always like to scoop up games that others enjoyed end of year to see what I've missed.
    +1
    Filter, or sort would be fine with me. Please….
    Excellent idea. I too like to pick up games that others here hold in high regard. Some times you'll only find this info by reading the entire thread.

    Will DMC 5 ever have a decent sale? Never seen higher than 30ish %
    The Xb1 version? It's been up to 67% off before but that was before they permanently reduced the price so there isn't a need to go that high anymore. Would you prefer the game stay the same price as launch just so it can have a bigger discount during sales even though you'd be paying essentially the same as it is right now?

    I'd prefer sub £10, heck around £5 if we're just giving preferences

    IDK if this is what's effecting you, but I found out last year there is actually a limit as to how many you can redeem per year. I'm currently sitting on 600K points I can't use until Jan 1st.

    No Disco Elysium, Fatal Frame (Project Zefo) or Judgment. Damn it.

    I’ve redeemed 500k points in a year before, if there’s a limit it’s gotta be above that. If you’ve gone above that and still have 600k points either you’ve saved them for years or you’re using multiple accounts and gifting them (most years 550k is the rough upper limit). I really hope it’s the former because the latter is not cool and will tank this program for everyone.

    Borderlands season pass 2 has been out ages now & still seems a bit of a rip off & an insult at £16 🧐
    Google knew how to put that on sale in 2020. lol

    Borderlands 3 with both season passes costed 1$ on Google Store 1 year ago even when season pass 2 were just released.

    Another non-standard sale without any notifications. Continuing on my crusade to get this fixed.

    Wishlist notifications
    Yea, I'm the author of this thread. We always have to wait a few hours for the wishlist notification to appear, that's strange. It wasn't so, a time ago. 'Luckily' TA has a more powerful server now... but not for that apparently.

    Otherwise yes, always the same games at the same prices. So nothing for me. Shame on Microsoft to be as lazy about that.
    Yes, I only use my wishlist to find games on sale that I know I want. Too many games to plow through like this. Would be great if ALL sales would work for the wish list games on sale thing.
    I also suggested in the past to do like Steam, being able to hide unwanted/already owned games from the sales lists, so it would be muuuuuuuuch easier to see what's left............. but no valid answer yet, and it's been months...

    'Not interested' games filter
    It might be a little more effort than wishlisting, but I set up price tracking for games I’m interested in. I get email notifications immediately and there’s also a “priced tracked only” checkbox on the filter.

    In case anyone wonders.

    If you install Windows 10 version of Mortal Kombat 11, all your DLC on Xbox One unlocks on PC at no extra cost.

    I was really hope that Red Alert 3 would pop up in this sale. Guess I'll wait for the dedicated backompat sale next year.
    M.A.K.

    That's a way to go around the problem, but it's not solving it. And your solution might be frustrating as if you set up a price alert at $5 and the game goes discounted at $5.5, you wouldn't know about that. If the wishlist notification would work, you could say 'okay, I can do the effort to take it at $5.50'. But with your method, for a few difference of price, you could miss any deal.

    Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Deluxe Edition for Windows is on sale for the first time like...ever??
  • Posted on 18 December 21 at 14:15
    Nice. Also, this is why I will never buy a Ubisoft game full price haha!
  • Posted on 18 December 21 at 14:23
    Whoever is saying let’s title this with “HUGE BARGAINS” needs to hit me up with their drugs supplier as they are obviously high as shit! Same recycled bargains as usual, rinse and repeat 0.0% effort put into these sales. Majority of people only buy digital so maybe just maybe one day they might make it worth our while.
    Well I’ve been checking a month so forgive me for assuming they were still not working boss ????

    Tiny Tina One Shot is 4.99, can't say no at that price.
    Same here. Wasn't ready to pay full price but at half it's a buy.

    I also bought Split/Second, for 2.49 it's good value.

    I'm tempted to buy Dark Souls 3 too

    Through the Darkest of Times on sale again, to anyone planing on buying it watch out, the Philanthropist achievement is so bugged it may be unobtainable, I managed to contact the devs though, so maybe it will be fixed some time in the future.
