    I am also thinking of getting Space Hulk Tactics at $2.99 even though it has some unobtainables on the achievement list. At 80% off it looks interesting.

    I was wondering why Red Faction Armageddon Ruin Pack is not available for sale on steam but is currently on sale on Xbox. After doing some research it is apparently free on steam but not on Xbox.

    Commando & Ruin Pack Added
    Hello,
    We added Commando & Ruin Pack DLC for Free. Enjoy!

    That is another dlc to scratch off my list for this week's sale on Xbox since I also own the base game on steam.

    Really sucks that Silent Hill Homecoming and Silent Hill: Downpour are not in the EU store.

    Are they 60fps on Xbox Series X? Maybe i will buy the disc versions.
    Just saying, but it's pretty easy to relocate your account as an US account for a few days, buy credit for US store and get the games working on your consoles. Worked like a charm for me with three 360 games unavailable in EU.
    How do you do this? Was trying to figure it out the other week and google wasn't much help although I'm not entirely sure what exactly to google to find an answer honestly.

    What's your take on Downpour?
    I've never played Downpour!
    I think it's been removed from the marketplace and I keep meaning to look for a disc copy, but given what I've seen from other gamers I'm not desperate for it. I think I heard it supposed to be better than Homecoming, at the very least in a technical sense? If you can get it for relatively cheap (I'd say less than £/$10 for example), I'd give it a go.
    Cogito ergo sum.

    Got the DLC with achievements for Red Faction Armageddon for sure. I can't believe the season pass for CoD Black Ops II is on sale. I will probably get that. Tempted to get Call of Duty 2. Good 360 selection this week.
    Strict Available Times: 10ish PM - 1 AM EST, United States

    Thanks for reminding me that the Path to War dlc for Red Faction Armageddon has achievements. After looking it up I decided to buy it too.

    There are some rare 360 sales this week, you should grab them: Silent Hill Homecoming, MGS PW HD, Vandal Hearts, ZOE HD
    All of them are good old Konami games before they exit console gaming...
    ZOE HD collection was given out with GWG back in Sep 2021 so I don't have to worry about that.

    I also own the MGS HD Collection on disc that includes PW.

    I did buy Silent Hill Homecoming in this sale after waiting for it to be put on sale at a substantial discount for a long time.

    Vandal Hearts looks interesting for a tactics strategy game but I think it is a bit overpriced for such an old game at $7.49 at only 50% off that only provides 200 GS.

    I decided to go instead for Space Hulk: Tactics which is also a tactics strategy game based on the Warhammer 40 K Universe for only $2.99 (80% off) but with more modern updated graphics.

    I need to go back and complete Strider. Only 5 achievements left.... since 2014.
    After it released, I assumed it was only a matter of time before it became a Games with Gold. 8 years later and I'm yet to be proven right.

    Go ahead and buy it then so it will finally become GwG

    Oh I don't want to play it. I just assumed it was ripe for the program (particularly at the time).

    Picked up Bayonetta (Xbox 360). I have the physical version but I thought I'd get the digital since it's discounted 60%.

    Disappointing to see so many of the Ubisoft titles and their DLCs that are being shut down excluded from the sales yet they are receiving discounts on other platforms.

    Yeah it’s rather unfortunate but at the same time, these games are so old that I can see why they are shutting them down to save money on keeping up rarely used servers by such minuscule minority of achievement hunters.

    With the recent shut down on windows phone and how that affected over hundreds of games, I’m suspecting that Xbox 360 will be gone very soon too and when that happens, all games that everyone has done the online achievements for, will be a complete waste of time unless they’re backwards compatible then you can get your single player achievements there, but the point of me writing this is that we all won’t be able to get so many of those desired games done or maybe even played. It’s just not possible and I wish developers never even bothered to add multiplayer achievements to games they know themselves they are gonna shutdown in the foreseeable future.

    I understand the need to shut down the servers, but it seems very shortsighted to not offer the same discounts across the board for those titles.

    No one will buy Ghost Recon Future Soldier or Assassins Creed DLC after servers shut down preventing the use of the DLC, so why not try to make more sales by discounting the price when they are already doing it for other marketplaces?
