    To help with that, use the Xbox Sales page and apply a few filters. There's only so much we can do smile

    It's actually not a bad idea now that sales lists are getting to be so huge (and also repetitive). How about adding an option to the price tracking, so that in addition to any price drop and a set amount, you have a block option? Behind the scenes you could add code that says 'display sale if price is >$5000' or something like that.

    Can I please request that the TA devs work on a better interface to view sales? This used to work great, but having a long table for 100s and 100s of items is just...not working. I'd like to be able to filter games I own, filter by price, filter by TA score, completion time, etc.
    +1
    But most importantly, filter games I'm not interested in.
    (Platform, series, developer, genre, etc)
    Most of that can be done on the Xbox Sales page.
    I'd love the opposite. Like sort of a saveable blacklist. It would be easier to expand that list with a "not interested in this..." button.
    But sure, the sales page already is a big help.

    Same sale under a different name, as per.

    Didn't even have to look to know that the BioShock Collection will be reduced to £7.99 - because it always is.

    Almost every single game I wanted has been cheaper in previous weeks sales, I was waiting for the BF sale to get them cheaper, not more expensive.facepalm

    Guess i'll have to check out Gamivo or Eneba then.
    These huge sales rarely have the best prices. These sales are about the quantity of games that are on sale not the quality of the sale it seems. I don't think I have ever bought a game from these special sales.

    Hmm...

    Yakuza Collection (even though I still haven't finished Zero).
    Fallout 4 GOTY PC if my computer runs it okay. Will test via Game Pass.
    Maybe Outer Worlds DLC since that's presumably never leaving Game Pass.

    Just got a notification Twin Mirror is on sale, a DontNod game I didn't even know existed until recently. Can't complain with the £4.99 price tag so will be picking that up at least.

    still no ascent dlc or SE5 season pass discount -__- like damn not even 20%?
    The Ascent DLC was just going for I think $8 in a previous sale
    It hasn’t. I check the sales every week and price history for it shows it’s never changed. Only $10 so I’ll probably just get it anyway but still I try not to buy anything unless it’s on sale cause my backlog is already ridiculous.
    It was on sale 18th August at 10% off, so $9. I bought it then for the UK equivalent.

    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    I'm pretty sure that's just the Game Pass discount being picked up.

    Out of my 24 games on my Wishlist only one is on sale, most of them are older games as well. I'm sad.
    Similar with me dozen or more older ones never on sale.

    Pathetic sales.

    Extremely disappointed by this years Black Friday sales. I am genuinely convinced they change the prices on certain items and then slash them to the original price to make people (who haven’t already seen the sales over the course of time) think that they are getting a bargain. A marketing ploy, good for the greedy fat cats making the prices but not good on the pockets of those who pump a lot of money into digital games.

    I am also disappointed. I love a good sale and snagged quite a few good deals in the last couple of months, but I expected so much more from the big Black Friday Sale. To my surprise, I haven't found anything worth putting down money for. Wait for the Christmas Sale, I guess?

    Games prices are fairly static outside of sales. It'd be pretty obvious if they were doing this.

    Black Friday sales for digital games just tend to be more quantity than quality. They aren't doing anything shady.

    I noticed in the last year, that after bf, around christmas everything so cheap. I think mostly because they know people spend their money for present and games.
    But reals deals between christmas and new years eve.

    I wish Duck Tales, Castle of Illusion, a bunch of Hidden Object Games, and some retro collections were on sale.
    Or if some thing like Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 1 and 2 had a more sensible price.

    Nothing much is making me go "oh that is a good game at a good price! " Yet, that I do not already own.

    I think it is time Far Cry 6 had a big discount digitally I've seen it for like £5 on disc for months now second hand.

    Anyone seen the game in a Disc version on sale anywhere ? (UK) So the £100 GOTY edition is somewhere between delusion and humour for me. It also seems quite likely it will be on Game Pass at some point too.

    I suppose the Avengers game is a decent price to those that thought it had some appeal at 80% off.

    Otherwise the only "Maybes" for me are : Ary and the Secret of Seasons & Cris Tales

    Hold up. They put Vanguard, MW and Cold war on sale? Outside of the fact warzone is connecting them why didn't they bother putting a sale on older cod titles?

    I just noticed the Microsoft Store on console finally has a price filter!! clap It is pretty bad at the moment... (most of the time I filter under $5 it gives me different games laugh) but at least there finally working on it! smile

    I got Cyberpunk for $10 last black friday.
    Disc or Digital?
    Steelbook and disc was $10 at Best Buy.
    I got the same deal. Has been sitting on my shelf ever since. Still waiting for more updates before I dive in. Gaming doesn't have to be expensive!
