Xbox Spring Sale 2022: Games that have never been cheaper

  • Posted on 08 April 22 at 20:41
    I agree with the sentiment that this list is misleading. Some of those games have been at those prices for a while, so while it is technically true that this is their lowest price ever, the list is not that helpful. Also, I am not sure why we need two lists, cant they add a new column to the sales article with this information? Maybe have icons for "new lowest", "same as last time", "more than last time" and "first time on sale". That could be really helpful in my opinion.

    Saints Row for $1.49 is a great price, very fun game in my opinion.
    I highly doubt it’s aged well at all
    It's a game from 2006 and it costs $1.49, I would assume you would keep your expectations in check.
    I see you haven’t even been here a year. First off welcome to TrueAchievements. That said we’ve got thousands of members who won’t even touch games unless they have a 4K and 60 FPS setting (and bitch when they don’t). So I’ll say it again with that in mind Welcome to the site 🤣

    I started and finished it in 2021, and it was a blast!

    Old does not mean bad. Definitely the best use of $1.49 this week.
    Absolutely. I finished the SP (offline, didn’t buy live back then) in like 07-08. Obviously never did MP without live
    haha, thank you and I know what you mean. Quite the crowd in the forums. I typically don't post for that reason.

    I like the 'games that have never been cheaper' being a recurring idea. Something along the lines of a hover or effect over on sale titles saying it was an all time low if that doesn't exist already but maybe it does and I hadn't noticed.

    I wish this list only included the games that are at their lowest price in Spring Sale. would've been much shorter and more informative
    We don't currently have that option when creating these articles, but I've raised it with the dev team so it's hopefully something we can do in the future...
    Came here for this same thing, thanks!

    Just so it gets noted with the devs (and maybe the setting is there and I just haven’t changed it in years. Highly likely) why don’t we have the option to stop getting notifications on posts we no longer care about

    I’ll say something. Someone will comment. Someone else will and I’ll get notifications that someone replied to me because I’m in the initial post. Every forum dating back to the early 00s I’ve ever been a part of I had the ability to stop getting notifications for that

    Yes, 'It means what it means. Literally. Games that have never been cheaper.' This article is for contents that reached their lowest prices SO FAR, AT THIS EXACT MOMENT, FOR THE FIRST TIME.

    Killer Instinct is always at 9.99, for months/years, so IT HAS ALREADY BEEN CHEAPER than that. Meaning with those Spring sales, it reached (again) its lowest price, but not below.

    If a content has already been that low, so it has already been that cheap. With the word NEVER, it means BEFORE now, the lowest in its history.

    Not difficult to understand. 🤷
    You seem to have a problem with elementary logic. Or you don't understand words. But you're definitely hilarious.

    The title of the article is "Games that have never been cheaper". If a game is on sale again at the same price as previously, but that game has not been on sale for a cheaper price, it gets in the list. Because it has never been cheaper. This is so basic I don't understand what your problem is.

    You say "This article is for contents that reached their lowest prices SO FAR, AT THIS EXACT MOMENT, FOR THE FIRST TIME." Which is not true. You invented the "for the first time" yourself. The title of the article is not, "Games that have reached their lowest price ever for the first time."

    If Killer Instinct has been on sale before at 9.99, and now it's on sale again at 9.99, but has not been on sale for less money than that, on what planet is your statement, "IT HAS ALREADY BEEN CHEAPER" true? In fact, it has never been cheaper, but it has been as cheap. You might want to revise how superlatives and comparatives work.

    Whether or not you think there should be different content in this article is irrelevant to you not understanding the meaning of words.

    Also, writing things in capital letters makes you look stupid. toast

    I just played it a few weeks ago, after putting it off since seeing the release trailer, which looked terrible (to me.)

    But I was actually pleasantly surprised. It's basically a bunch of different mini-games in each level, so it never gets old. Some mildly frustrating parts. I thought the voice acting was terrible at first, but it grew on me. Got about 6.5 hours out of it with 785/1000 G. Don't care about the completion. I'd imagine the hard difficulty would be a real pain in the butt.

    Solid entertainment for a few hours. But if you want the completion, think carefully.

    XCOM 2 collection is under $10?! That thing normally goes for like $100+, shocking
    $5, normally $100.

    Well worth it.
    ^ This.

    It's an insane discount (95%) and for non-Xbox Live Gold members, it *is* a bigger discount than ever before (It was on sale last month at the same price for Gold members only).

    It's basically one step above the sea floor, pricewise. dive

    Thinking of buying RE2 Remake. Is the DLC any good, and if so, should I spring for the Deluxe Edition?

    Actually $5 US. That is a pretty good price. I already own it on steam but at that price I might get it on Xbox as well.

    Yeah there are some hidden bargains in there, like X-Com, Bioshock, Saints Row. Maybe the article could filter them out for those (precious few I'd suspect) who havn't played them yet.

    Call of Duty Vanguard at seventy quid (and that includes a 30% discount!) lowest ever price. I'll get back to you on that one :)

    To be honest, with Gamepass I have so many great games I'll never get time to play as it is. The last game I bought on sale was Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts.

    I still remember saving for weeks to afford the five quid for a cassette tape of Manic Miner. Some of those games that are years old, and for under two quid, you simply can't go wrong.

    so Halo Wars 2 Awakening the Nightmare still never discounted
    Cheaper to rebuy entire game ....
    This farse needs to stop. Either 343 or MS need to sort it out & take blinders off, rather than loyal following who suffered through all the issues with this game even after was heavily discounted, for the Ultimate ed to be replaced by Complete ed & HaloWars 1 to be given away for £4 was it?
    Come the f on.
    Amen!!! I got a xbox gift card for my birthday and am just going to cave in and get the complete edition. I have waited for an individual sale for years and nothing. I missed the last time it went on an individual sale. This is a reason I haven't bought Borderlands 3 yet

    Although not in the easter sale Axis Football 2021 has been reduced to $0.99/£0.79.

    Not sure how long for and a shout to Derek 2.0 on discord for the heads up on this easy completion.
