Xbox sale round-up March 8th, 2022

    I wish there was a massive $5 and under X360 sale on the catalogue so I can buy digital for discs I own. Feels weird to spend $10 and $15+ for something I already have physically.

    To that extent, does anyone know how the GTAIV DLC works digitally? I have the disc for the base game + DLC packs. If I were to buy the digital version, does the XBO/XBSX see the downloaded DLC game files from the disc and allow ongoing access if I own GTAIV digitally? Or will I have to have the discs in the console to access the DLC? I know back compat is a bit wonky in that some games had the DLC just work digitally after you put a DLC disc into the box once (I think Borderlands 1 worked that way). Both DLCs are listed in the Xbox store, but are not purchasable, which makes me curious...

    All the CoD still expensive, and still no BO3 360 dlc

    I’m curious to see if MS will keep these prices for CoDs or change them once the acquisition is done

    I wish the Modern Warfare 3 DLC for Xbox 360 would go on sale, especially since it has achievements, and there are 4 DLC packs that are $15 each.
    They may go on sale next year after Activision-Blizzard is sold to M$. Other than that I waited YEARS, bro, YEARS and finally just bought them all last year full price. Wait a year and gamble or wait for a delist tbh. M$ buying them or not doesn't mean much. D4-Dark Dreams Don't Die was removed from GP (is published by M$) and haven't caught it on sale since. FYI.

    Yeah, I guess I will wait and see what happens, I have plenty of other Call of Dutys to work on in the meantime. Or maybe pick up one DLC every month or so. Buying all 4 at once is $60, equivalent to buying a brand new game! Just for some ancient DLC. I am betting it won't be delisted, because it is Call of Duty, but you never know.
    I was lucky enough to grab D4 when it was GwG.
    Thank you for your input.

    Got the BO2 Season Pass already but never started it due to the one achievement that is discontinued and can only be obtainable through modded lobbys... missed the chance to get this achievement before they took it down.

    finally Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty on sale, according to xbdeals hasn't been on sale since June 2017
    And a very good price for the Deluxe version. I'll probably pick it up.

    Picked up the Artifex Mundi ones I didn't have, the Metro bundle, Leisure Suit Larry 2, Hard West and Real Politiks. Some great deals this week.
    Too much work, not enough games

    I wonder why Dead by Daylight - Cursed Legacy is on sale for Xbox but not Windows. All of the other DLC seems to be discounted on both
  • Posted on 08 March 22 at 10:57
    That XCOM 2 discount is outrageous. Insta-buy. More like that please!

    Bought Pure Pool and instantly regretted it after just 5 minutes playing it on an alt.

    Absolute garbage, stupid controls and the worst camera I have ever seen in a pool/snooker game.

    Fair play to the 7 on here that stomached it to completion because I don't want to even put it on this tag.

    Sundered, South Park bundle, Glass Masquerade bundle and I may finally bite on Elex. Excellent week for sales.

    If you have installed the DLC from this disc version, it did just that...installed it. You can absolutely use it with a digital copy! (Same for any 360 game that installs the DLC as opposed to playing it off the disc)

    However that's for the 360. Not sure about how it works with Back Compat since I just have it all digitally. If it does install it as separate files like it does on the 360 i would think it would work the same.


    As for me with this sale...I said no more backlog! Until I saw 1/2 dozen interesting looking indie games for under a $5er a pop.....guess it gets a little bigger.
