    Yes! Been waiting for Kingdoms of Amalur to go on sale. So very sold. Bastion was a pretty solid game and I'd recommend it for those interest.

    As for GTA V ironically enough my gf told me earlier today Target (at least it Canada) is selling it for $19.99 right now.

    If the sale is still active grab Bastion while it's hot. Seriously, it's badass.

    So they are still selling this old game for €69,99 in Europe? facepalm
    One of the quirkier problems of Digital is that you never know what price the games are still selling at, before the percent off. Percent off tells you nothing, you really have to look at the price in currency. A 25 % off game could be cheaper than a 75 % off game, even if they both retailed at $60 originally.

    You can get gta cheaper in the shops,just think how much space it would take up if you downloaded it from xbl.

    Definitely get Bastion if you haven't already, its one of the best XBLA games out there. Was looking at KoA but already have enough RPGs on my plate to pas up an overpriced GoD title.

    I've been on the sales for a while, but thank goodness there's nothing here to tempt me to spend even more.

    I just did a conversion from euros to sterling and I now feel very sorry the "€" people. Surely they aren't allowed to do this?

    If the game Is on sale for £4 then in all honesty the game should be €5.03. This is a digital copy after all so there are no costs incurred due to shipping and everything else that goes with a physical copy.

    Well, honestly, it's not like prices are the only thing we're getting shafted with. Some people just complain about everything (though rightfully so) and others have become accustomed to it.

    Titanfall and Call of Duty: Ghosts Season Pass are on sale all week.

    janiwesterling said:I'd really like to get at least some kind of a comment from the person who does all the euro pricing. Might even be a funny one as that person seems to be drunk as f... most of the time.and after they have done the European prices they have another drink and then do the New Zealand pricing ;)

    GTA V is $29.99 in the US, $47.61 in the EU, $51.62 in AU and $52.85 in NZ

    What it really comes down to is this, the sale prices are set by the game publisher and if a game is currently selling for €40 in store, then you are unlikely to see it for much less than that in an online sale, regardless of if being $30 online in the US, because that would harm store sales. Online sales are usually worse in the US, because the same game is likely to be $25 in store, which makes it nearly impossible for an online sale to harm store sales. So in New Zealand at least, online sales are usually pretty good deals compared to New Zealand store prices. Comparing New Zealand online prices with US store prices is an excersie in futility. I buy games from amazon.com and even though the shipping is twice the price of the game, it is still cheaper than buying the game from a New Zealand store.

Come on.You should give the publishers of those 100 games a call and tell them if Rockstar and Bethesda can discount their games, then why can't they. I'm sure Microsoft would be grateful to have a bit more variety for their sales. And tell them that a 10% to 15% discount isn't going to cut it, Microsoft expect at least a 30% discount, and 50% upwards if they want their game to feature in an Ultimate sale.
