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.

    PS: I really hate people like you who can't respect other people's tastes.
    What a strangely aggressive, overreactive, borderline manic depressive, response.
    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.
    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.
    This just your opinion mate.

    Holy fucking shit that's about what I paid for Rock Band 3 on release.
    I'm pretty sure that's the default price as opposed to the sales price, right? At least last I checked, I dunno. If not then that's fucking ridiculous.
    OH NO, THE BIG BOOBIES ARE SCARING ME! MUUUUUUUUUM!!!! -osubluejacket

    cancermatt2 said: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?I'm interested in it too but I don't actually know anyone who's played it. I know Egoraptor and his girlfriend recommend it highly though so I might just go for it since it's only 3 quid.

    To ANYONE who is thinking of Puzzle Fighter!! IT IS A GREAT GAME!!! I had it on my GameBoy Advance a chunk of years back and spent hours playing it! If your used to games like this or have played it before the achievements are fairly easy and not time consuming. The MP achievements are a bit of a pain though as it took me a couple times of putting sessions up to get them. If you want to get this game and get the MP done THIS IS TIME GUYS!!!

I'm guessing the euro and australian dollar prices for Rock Band 3 and Call of Duty: Ghosts were switched when copy-pasting the prices.No, the guy who posted the deals, made a typo it seems.You're right, it's just a typo. With this many items in a sale, mistakes do happen. I'm sure it will be corrected soon.

    Don't forget you can always check Sales Hub for pricing in your region - I'm looking at you Canadians! smile

    Also the Rock Band albums work on Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz.

    marklynx said:Anyone know if it is possible to buy Dead Rising 2: Case West (JP Ver) with Microsoft Money or is a Credit Card needed?A Japanese credit card is needed, since the games have a "Z" rating (ages 18 and up), and the way they confirm you are above the age of 18 is for you to input your credit card information as proof of your age.

    Unless there is a pending fix, there is an unobtainable in Angry Birds Star Wars.

    Nothing for me again! Cheap deal in Europe for CoD Ghosts. Shame I can't say the same for the UK...
  • Posted on 05 August 14 at 19:48
    CoD Ghosts....again! Wtf!?! And at that high price again?! It's getting more and more ridiculous! The hardened edition for xbox 360 is available here for €39.99 brand new. Who on earth buys just the standard game for €35?

    Resident Evil 4 for me!!!! Only played the first half on Wii and always wanted to finish it. I can't wait, now I just have to free up space on my Hard Drive.
  • Posted on 05 August 14 at 19:51
    Ghosts again. Haven't seen over 100,000 people online in months for both 360 and XBONE. I think it's safe to say it's awful.

    Seriously does Microsoft just not know how to do math or what?
    This is more driven by publishers.

    Overall, not bad weekly sale.
    This was my mistake getting mixed up putting the prices in. It's been fixed now. Apologies.

    They have the the Ghost Prestige Edition reduced from $348 to $107 in New Zealand at the moment.

    Buy Lost Planet 2, the ratio has to go up. :D

    Nah in all honesty though, it's a nice game, has a lot of bugs though, MP is shit (well, unbalanced...) and the grind is horrible. Campaign and botmatches were actually quite fun, as were the training missions.
