XBL Sale Roundup: May 6th, 2014

  • Posted on 06 May 14 at 14:11Permalink
    I wouldn't mind half off for the Ultra Edition of Killer Instinct. I don't understand why they'd do dynamic pricing for the Combo Breaker package, but not the Ultra. Each individual character you buy drops the price by the same amount for CB, so you never pay too much if you decide to make the plunge, but the Ultra price never changes. I'd pay $20 for the upgrade, but definitely not $40.

    I simply don't get the exchange rate they are using.
    1:1 Fable Anniversary US$29.99 => €29.99
    1:0.66 Transformers: Fall of Cybertron US$14.99 => €9.99
    1:1.5 Transformers: War For Cybertron US$4.99 => €7.49
    I'm (more or less) fine with adjusting the pricing for different countries. But be a bit more consistent, MS, will ya! smile

    You'd be a fool not to snap the Transformers up right now if you haven't already - they have been very expensive since release, great deals there!
    Let me find peace in my own heart and save me from my enemies.

    the first transformers is an awesome game. I might jump on the second for 15 bucks.

    Wow. And here I bought both these Transformers games from GameStop two weeks ago.

    Anyway, if anyone hasn't played War for Cybertron and/or Fall of Cybertron I can highly recommend them. They are super fun! And this sale should make it easier to put together some boosting sessions for those games :)

    if you like the gears of war series, the campaign on the first game plays very similar to it, which is a good thing.

    Garbage sales once again, shame on you microsoft. Fable anniversary's been out for months so it should be much cheaper

    I'm actually debating in purchasing one of the Transformers. Should I get War for Cybertron or cough up the extra $10 and get Fall of Cybertron?

    I already have Fez and Pool Nation in my backlog from a previous sale, but I guess it is a good opportunity for those who still don't have them.

    Just started Sacred 2 a few days back. Definitely won't be needing any more 'Sacred' games or RPG's for a while. laugh
