    Looked through this, doesn't even feel like a sale. I still laugh at Back 4 Blood being £49.99.
    There is always a way.

    Hell is gonna freeze over before they do a big sale on Xbox 360 DLC

    Now the question of do I grab judgement since this is the first time I’ve seen it discounted, or wait a year for it to possibly be even cheaper cause my backlog is so huge…

    what on earth feels like a sale to you, if reduced pricing on over 600 items doesn't?

    Yay, another shitty sale. I love Xbox but these guys suck at sales. Please, copy Sony at this.

    It's always THE SAME GAMES, with precisely the same prices, over and over again. Some publishers are never there, japanese and indie games are rarely at sale. Compare it with the weekly sales on PlayStation, you will be shocked.

    Special sales like this we can't automatically scan for as we don't know when they are going live. They have to be scanned in manually when we're in the office. It also takes a very long time to send out notifications to all the users for the hundreds of games on offer, so give us a chance haha.

    Well at least I learned about the existence of Surviving the Aftermath, I had a great time with Surviving Mars. But then I found a physical copy cheaper on Amazon toast

    Not bad, might hold off though nothing really sticks out
    If all pork chops were perfect, we wouldn't have Hot Dogs!!!

    A sale would be meaningful if it wasn't the same things every time. I wish they'd put games on sale that aren't the same every time. The sale prices for Assassin's Creed games for example. Those are on sale so much they might as well be the permanent price point. Again, I come back to Back 4 Blood. £20 at ASDA instead of £49.99 digital. And this is considered "Half off". I think they only game I'd consider out of this "sale" is Sword Art Online - Fatal Bullet.

    This sale is purely quantity of items with "discounted" prices. I'd rather see quality or rarity over quantity.
    There is always a way.

    Yet these latest years, Spring, Black Friday, Winter sales were pretty fast. I can understand it's bigger so longer, but it's maybe a point a work on, so no one would manually (hard) work on that, you have better things to do. Congrats to the volunteer that did it.

    Already saw the sale, no "Dark Souls 1" or "3" present. I am greatly disappointed.

    LEGO Jurassic Park = $5/12€. I hate taxes! So many things I want but won't take because of currency convertion. I'll check their physical versions, they'll be cheaper.

    Pointless if it's quantity over quality every single time. The price points just don't make sense to the average savvy gamer.

    As stated above it would be great if they copied Sony style on their sales. I always see much better prices over there.
