    Wow!! This is horrible. 99.9% of everything has been on sale before &, in most cases, at a better deal than this. There was not a single Game/DLC/Bundle that I want or need. Thanks Micro$oft, you saved me $ on your big "Spring" Sale.

    You do you just want to say I have over 700 games and only the live service ones update all the time. 95% of my games haven't had an update in months and most likely won't ever again. You are right about the updates thou I don't think a single game I have on disc didn't require an update at least once. But you could work around it and spread the updates out once you get that one done you'd be good. Just feel like you're missing out on a lot.
    Guessing this was aimed for me? The limit is just too tiny and there are others in the household that use the internet as well. The computer updates alone take up a big chunk of the bandwidth leaving not a lot free later in the month. This service isn't just a 'slow down if you go over', it's full on shut off. Can't risk it. :( It prevents streaming content online and doing a lot of other things. Just trying to keep the computers up to date uses far too much of our limit as it is like I said. Upgrading a game system is just not possible on theis internet that's available to me here. I'm in the country so it likely won't ever change. :( Not spending several hundred dollars on a system I can't use. I've actually heard of far too many of the games having Day 1 patches even on disc so it's really not an option. When you have to watch your bandwidth carefully like this you pick up on all these little details that others tend to skip over because they don't have to worry them :(
    If unlimited broadband is not available in your area, I doubt you get good cellphone coverage. BUT on the off chance you do, one alternative is to get a cellphone plan with unlimited data and set up your phone as a mobile hot spot and use that to connect your devices to. That's what I did when our home broadband went down for about a week. It works quite well provided you have a semi decent phone signal. Either way, happy gaming friend.
    Haha nope, 0 cell signal where I live unless we drive almost 20 miles to town. There's a few spots along the highway you can get 1-2 bars but it doesn't hold enough for more than a text sometimes. Really no TV either. 1 mostly stable channel with nothign remotely interesting to watch. This is not a good area for technology. Sad too because I'm in the US and you'd think there'd be better tech available but nope -_- Each time a grant for upgrading internet access to states goes out they go right up and over the top of the county I'm in and choose to upgrade people's speed that already have better access than get it to people that actually need it -_- Even our land lines suck honestly LoL

    Thanks for the idea though but yeah, kinda trapped here -_- Dialup is my backup if the net goes down, or was but that got to the point a person can't load a single page or even get a single teeny tiny text based email downloaded so I don't even bother anymore.



    I looked at the sale list again and saw 3 PC games. One should run on here but 4GB and it's early in the month so kinda leaning towards avoiding it because the giant Windows updates haven't even ran yet and last few months we've barely had 5GB at the end of the month free to play with. Other 2 are 1GB each so much better size but slightly in question because they want a GPU and I only have an integrated one. I do have the base RAM to make up for it but it'll be close still so kinda undecided. This sale is 2 weeks right? Updates will have run next week so I'll have a better idea at that point if I want to try :D

    I feel like I missed my chance with Hitman 2 gold and they’re only going to push Hitman 3 from now on.
    Unless you want to stack, than just get HITMAN 3 as hitman 1 and 2 maps and achievements are on 3.
    I already started 2 with the free stuff available and planned on just importing my profile into 3 for the free achievements and playing 3.
    Free achievements? You have to do redo 1 and 2 on 3. I wish it retroactively unlocks LOL

    GTA Trilogy is still $40 on sale after all those 1star reviews? I expected it to be $20 soon. No way that I pay $40 for only nostalgia.
    I wish someday I can have enough money to escape from Islamic Nuclear program country of fucking Iran

    Looked through this, doesn't even feel like a sale. I still laugh at Back 4 Blood being £49.99.
    Back 4 Blood lost it's value on PC already.
    It were recently in a Humble Bundle where you got it almost for free.

    Feel £78.74's a genuinely decent bargin for WWE 2K22 nWo 4-Life Edition, cause not only you get all the DLC, you also get BOTH the One and Series X versions of the game and their respective season passes too, and they even have their own seperate achievement stacks. May consider it.
    It's not really a bargain. 2K chose to have two separate versions, each with a separate yet undoubtedly identical season pass and not do smart delivery in order to fleece gamers for as much money as possible.

    I understand. My Uncle lived in the backwoods of PA and had to pay an exorbitant amount for satellite internet that only worked when it was good weather. I hope your internet situation improves one day or they raise the cap. One other option is a friend that you could give an external harddrive to once a month that could install all the updates for you and give it back. I did that for my cousin a few times. His cap was prolly around the same and it only took me a few hrs to download all the updates for him.

    Disappointing sale to me. The vast majority of the games on sale have been on sale already or constantly remain on sale (CoD, Assassins Creed, Sims). I only found 1 game I wanted on the entire list and that is because it had never been on sale before. I really wish they would put some newer games that I want on sale (like Gunk or Grounded).

    Also, to be honest, I find it frustrating to read that there are 100s of games on sale but it seems like a significant portion are DLCs for game that I have no interest in (Sims, CoD). Seriously I have my filter set to 100 and one page is just Sims DLCs (that are always on sale).

    Oh well my backlog is so full I'll never get to play them all anyway.

    Also I like to play XBox games on PC (XBox Play Anywhere) or XBox games that are republished to PC. The PC sales from the MS Store are always bad. This sale is no exception. A couple of new additions but otherwise the same old games nobody as ever heard of. Really wish they'd have a massive PC sale in the store too.

    It's a new satellite service not fully out of beta yet. They are low orbit satellites for a much much lower latency and they right now claim "unlimited" internet which is not the case (nothing is unlimited, there's always a limit of some sort) and no actual plan data available for when it's fully officially opened to everybody. What Starlink doesn't tell you is that their prices they hid behind their beta testing wall that you had to be invited to even see to try and make it "affordable for low income families" is currently a $1000 total setup and that it's not a 100% uptime service still and you had to pay then and there with the invite (it expired after a short amount of time) and that you were not even promised the service after you paid until a "new slot opened up for testing". So you are paying $1000 for something you may or may not even get to use at this point. Sorry, but not everybody can afford that -_- Starlink isn't an option due to price and the way they are currently running it.

    Same here I mean they're inferior versions but after playing San Andreas on GP I know I'd still have an enjoyable time with the other 2 so I would like to buy them, not at that current sale price though no way.
