    The sale almost read my mind this week. Ballad of Gay Tony, This War of Mine TLO, Red Faction Guerilla. Just needed Dark Souls 2 for the 360 to not be 20 bucks.

    Would anyone recommend Deadlight: Director’s Cut for a completionist? Looks interesting.

    I played Deadlight on the 360 and afterwards I was interested in this version too, but the „Nightmare“-achievement made me avoid it.

    Who decides what games go on sale? Metro Xbox saga is finally on sale but not the windows version?! So annoying
    The publisher of a game can change the price anytime they want. However it is Microsoft that decide which of those price changes they are going to promote.

    I believe some publishers (eg Ubisoft) have an agreement with Microsoft that their games can be discounted by a certain amount any time Microsoft wish.

    Go buy the Metro games at those low prices. What a great deal for a good/great game!
    3 games and all DLC for less than half the price of a single piece of mediocre DLC for another game.

    Dead Island bundle is another great deal.

    It’s why I cannot bring myself to pay $40 for something like AC Valhalla Ragnarok DLC.

    Thank you for taking the time to answer this! Means a lot! Metro saga windows was last on sale in 2021. Im hoping it will show up again someday. I really don’t want to spend 60$ on it, knowing sometime it will be $20. Cheers bro!!

    Thank you, I shall avoid it too. Not a fan of achievements like that.

    I’ll grab The Last Campfire for 3 bucks
    A very wise decision.
    Thanks for the advise, both of you. I never read the comments, but yours made me wonder what was that unknown game to me, and I pretty liked the gameplay I saw. 3€/$, 50% of completion, 5-6hrs to finish (so it's not a developer willing to make easy money with quick 1,000Gs), everything looks good. I purchased it. clap

    Saints Row at 26.99 is really tempting me... Worth it at that price point?

    Is that a good price for Kingdom Come Deliverance and the DLC? I'm ready to play a game that isn't made by Eastasiasoft or Desert Water...
    Thats an absolute steal at that price. Love Kingdom come

    Is anyone else confused by the Plaion publisher sale banner vs. the games saying when the sale ends? When I click on the sale, the banner at the top shows the sale ends on the 27th of February, but the games on sale all say "ends in 11 days."

    Anyone debating whether to get the Last Campfire, you really should get the game for the ridiculously low price. I would compare it to a Zelda dungeon game, but without the combat. Good story, good puzzles, really nice presentation. No complaints whatsoever. I honestly almost feel guilty for being able to play it for under £3

    But for as long as the Xbox 360 marketplace exists, if you buy it on Xbox One you will be given a free licence for Xbox 360. When I buy a game I look at which store has it the cheapest and buy from that store and get a free licence from the other store. Sometimes they are the same price, but not always.

    I still wish TA would separate the Xbox games from the Xbox 360 games, and the Xbox One games from the Xbox Series games.

    Yeah, luckily buying it on a XSX gave me the license on the Xbox 360. I have heard that for certain games, this is not the case, which would be crazy.

    I just wish they would post the proper Store Link for either the Old Marketplace or the new Website, otherwise we have to dig around a bit and find them.

    I don’t know about games, but I own all the Dead Space DLC on Xbox One but need to buy it again if I want it on Xbox 360.
