    Sherlock Holmes Chapter One has the lowest price yet with this sale, may redeem some rewards for that one...

    for me, “deals with gold” is not working , along with “games with gold” , even though i have game pass unlimited. been this way for weeks. their support just says they’re working on it. pretty annoying as i wanted to buy from this sale lol..
    did you do the convert gold to ultimate trick? it seems like it is a nasty bug to that where it doesn't give you gold discounts or let you download gwg
    if you have easy games on your gamercard dont be a hypocrite and stop others from enjoying the same games

    Unfortunately that also doesn't work, I've tried it more than once.

    Only the "old" marketplace (e.g. Switzerland, you need Swiss balance or cc) and the store on Xbox 360 is working. Even the store of Win 10/11 is affected.

    All people, as long as I'm aware of, who are affected by this bug did that. And all also didn't buy Gold directly from MS. Maybe some sort of punishment? Conspiracy theories incoming....
    If you ever need anything, please don't hesitate to ask someone else first, I'm too busy.

    Yes, I converted gold to ultimate. Regardless of desktop browser, console, mobile browser etc. didn't fix it for me.

    But if anyone else is running into this glitch, there are workarounds for both games with gold and deals with gold in this thread:

    didnt know about not buying gold from xbox...the previous couple of times I did the conversation was use all my microsoft reward points to get as many months of gold
    as possible and then just pay the 14.99 for one month of ultimate to convert them all and it has worked since 2009 til June of this year.
    I was going to do the same thing but was worried about the gold bug since I use the digital sales quite a bit...thanks for the confirmation

    I bought Call Of Juarez Gunslinger, but when I try to download it on xbox 360 the game doesn't appear.
    I tried looking for it in the arcades section, but it doesn't show up there either.
    Does anyone know how I can download it?
    Thank you for the information, but unfortunately I will not be able to participate at this time

    Nah, I've converted 3yrs Gold (not directly from MS) to GPU twice now and never have a problem redeeming/downloading GwG games or with the deals.

    I usually redeem GwG on the console but I've done it through a browser too.

    It's been delisted on Xbox 360 marketplace, you can try checking your download history in 360 settings and hopefully it pops up there.

    If it doesn't, I would try download the game on an Xbox One/Series if you can then checking again on 360.

    off-topic: Omori just left game pass at the end of June and it seems it is now also removed from the store, why ?

    same, that's pretty weird, I've seen there are a few disappointed people on reddit threads, hopefully it will be back (it's still there on steam but I don't wanna start from zero after having played for quite a few hours + I want cheevos)

    Snake Pass for $2.99 is a great deal.
    Thanks for the tip, can confirm it's a good deal. Played through 1/3rd of the game today. The controls take a bit of getting used to, but afterwards, it's a fun and unique platformer. Really nice graphics and music too.

    Some parts can be frustrating, but if you take things slow and accept failure sometimes it's perfectly fine.

    Gunslinger is great. Plays well, cool art style, doesn't overstay its welcome but there's some replayability when going for achievements.
