Hitman Absolution is a steal at $4.99. I had a blast with that game and would highly recommend it!

A lot of the Microsoft Store stuff is out of stock. The website does this annoying thing where you click on the game landing page and it says “Add to Cart”, giving you the impression you can buy it. After 5-15 seconds though a little refresh arrow thing updates the availability to Out of Stock.

Would it be that hard to program the inventory to just show it out of stock from the get go like practically every other site out there? Very frustrating when trying to view multiple items on the site facepalm

FYI Gamestop also has that Splinter Cell CE on sale for $69.99 (I believe) down from $149.99. Not interested, personally, but a great deal if you want that flying plane and whatever else it came with!
Look at me so I can finish!

Inventory web apps doesn't really work this way. It's hard to provide accurate data. "Out of stock" information is anything but real time :)

Microsoft needs to drop the prices of every single digital game they have on sale at the Store to match the physical versions, specially since games like Star Trek, which is $19.99 not on sale at the Store, is $29.99 for digital.

But are they in stock? I doubt any of those under $10 are (checked Res Evil and it was not)

Out of stock, but you could have gotten this from Best Buy for $14.99 last week. Great game though so don't feel too gutted

I got Medal of Honor Warfighter a few days ago when this sale went up. I like it better than MOH1 but I don't think it's as pretty.

First off – these weren’t in stock for long.

Second off – these aren’t digital sales we’re talking here. These are physical discs.

Thirdly – Microsoft Store and Microsoft Store UK, while sharing similarities, probably have almost completely different sales forces and management, etc. Maybe the game in question was £14.99 for months now, while in the US it was $59.99 only until recently (?). Maybe there’s a surplus of said game in the US whereas not in the UK? There’s a multitude of factors as to why a game goes on sale in one place and not another. Cobra Commander isn’t sitting at a command center saying “PUNISH THE DESPICABLE PEONS OF THE UK BY DISCOUNTING GAMES IN THE US! SOON THEIR FAITH WILL CRUMBLE AND THEY WILL SURRENDER TO THE POWER OF COBRA”.

Skylanders spyros adventure is 19.99 at best buy. However there is not a shipping option so you'll have to check your physical store. Also I understand this is a deal round up but what is the point of posting a sale that has expired (gamestop)

Gamestop is out of sync of the other stores. Their deals are still valid when this gets posted to the site as their deals run Wednesday to the following Tuesday.
