    Why not just have a bundle forever and serperate games? On PS Store they have bundles for every DLC.

Do bundles re-download properly after they are delisted? Or can I expect some hassle? Ever since they didn't deliver BC on One I'm paranoid about my digital stuff.cryI only ever got this bundle; it was a separate program you downloaded and from within that one you could click on both games to download. The bundle itself should be available for redownload.

    Hopefully these will go on sale at some point in the future. I'll pick them up when the price is right, but until then I'll hold off.
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    The games go into your download history when you download through the app. It's probably too late to help anyone though.

    ScorchPSO said:Le Compadre said:BK has almost been available for 6 years and BT has been available for a little over 6 years. How about keeping this offer or reducing the price of each game permanently?As sad as it is, if you put a time limit on something it makes people more inclined to spend the money on it as they'll feel pressured.

    It's the same reason they always say most collectors editions are "Just for a limited time!" But end up never selling out because there's so many of them, give people a time frame and they'll push to buy it
    I think after 6 years if you haven't bought the games you don't want them.

    You know the games will be on sale later...at 50%, then 75% off probably.
    been waiting since 2009 for a sale on banjo kazooie.. I have tooie already.. not paying 14.99 for kazooie. I don't think a sale will ever happen.

    Aardvark Vulgar said:Is there any advantage of buying the bundle if you own one of the games already?

    $15 for each separately or $15 for the bundle. No discount for those who own one Banjo game.
    You'll theoretically have two copies of one? Impress your friends!

    So I bought the bundle before it was removed from Xbox.com, and downloaded it. Ran the "game" to download the two games and it keeps stating I need an Xbox Live profile/ a connection to actually download, so basically I just blew 15 bucks on nothing. Just messaged Rare, hopefully they get back to me soon.

    Anyone else got this issue?

    I tried to get on the page for the game on my 360, and it gave me an error code. 8C230002. There shouldn't be any problem, still two hours left of Friday (at least where I am.) Maybe so many people are trying to buy it that it crashed or overloaded somehow? I hope, because that's bullshit if they took it down before they were supposed to, and right as I was about to buy it angry

    That's messed up. Good luck to you both. Might be better to tell this to Microsoft instead of Rare though.
