    I was so pumped when I saw RE 6 DLC on sale but then I realized game has 4 dlc not 3 and my excitement fell, I am not going to pay 10$ for 15-20 hours of mindless boosting, if it was on sale yes but otherwise nah I will pass.
    I'm no hero. Never was, never will be. I’m just an old killer, hired to do some wet work.

    I bought Ghosts a few weeks ago for like $13 from gamefly. Prefect condition. Microsoft needs to update their pricing because I feel like they have a 5 year old making them.

Microsoft pays Activision to put the game on sale, not the publisher. The publishers have no control of sales at all. Finally I have to inform you that still CoD Ghosts sells well, just because you hate something, it doesn't mean that its bad, that's why it ends up being on sale everytime, because people buying it. If they wouldn't it would be pointle for MS to pay money to the publisher with no income at all.

    I've always been curious about Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and never have seen it on sale before. Can anyone recommend the game?

    Actually, all of these sales are an arranged agreement between Microsoft/Sony/Steam/Nintendo and the publishers. The platform holders can't adjust the price of a game on their own without breaking a contract they have with the publisher allowing their game to be available for digital download.

    And I'm not saying CoD Ghosts is a poor game, or that someone has poor taste to play it. I'm just merely stating that CoD Ghosts has sold poorly compared to previous iterations of the CoD franchise, a fact that Activision stated to their shareholders. This doesn't mean it hasn't sold well, just not as well as Activision would have wanted.

    Still I don't think that's the case, MS should contact Activision to arrange the sale on the game, same goes for other platforms. Finally, sorry I misunderstood you.

    No, I never said that I don't respect other people's tastes, don't reverse my sentence if you can't understand. And that's not called opinion when some people hating on a franshise that sells well than their favorite games.

    Yes I agree, and I feel sorry for that. I thought he was one of these no lifers that hate on things just for fun, but that's not the case here.

    One week BF4, next Ghosts. Two of the largest franchises relying on sales to push their 'broken, crappy' games through. Both were idiots to push incomplete games through.

    Yes, very over reactive. And Ghosts and Battlefield were BOTH releasesd broken and have had many problems which have destroyed their sales. Doesn't matter who is putting it on sale, they are all still trying to make money off a defective game.
