    Nabbed Peggle finally along with DLC and PvZ.

    The weekly deals haven't updated for me yet, the CSGO tile is there but I click on it and it still has last weeks deals.

    Sometimes the promotion on the dashboard won't be updated until it's manually changed, which depending on your location may take a while longer than other countries.

    The good news however is that once the price changes do go live, you only need to search for the game you're after to get the discounted price.

    When I saw the prices had changed I was able to buy the games by searching. I got some of the new games on offer at 1am UK time :)

    All the people complaining amuse me. Yep, I expect MS to give me Titanfall on Xbox One for FREE. *smh*
    They don't have to give us shit for free, but if their main competitor hands out (come on, it's economics 1o1 to react to your sole competitor, esp. when you've been losing ground for some time already)

    http://blog.eu.playstation.com/2013/12/24/the-playstation-st...

    sales like THIS (this is insane, especialy an additional 10% off from PSPlus) it's quite normal to be unsatisfied as xbox gamer or wonder what MS is doing. And I'm not even talking about the free games of PSN vs ArcadeBox. I almost feel like advertising, but I'm just fucking pissed glancing over at PSN and than seeing those lousy xbox sales. IT's like getting a Polo as a bonus while your colleague gets a Ferrari.

    But as long as people are satisfied with 2nd rate arcade games (I'm talink about last days sales, today is at least somewhat decent...) MS doesn't have to change it's policy I guess. And don't get me wrong, neither do I want to bitch around actually nor am I really planning on getting lots of these games anyway, but at the end of the day we still might get hurt, if even more indecisive gamers decide going to PS instead of xbox and that's whats been worrying me for some time now (just look at the HW sales) even before getting a One. I never wanted to get a PS3, but after more and more games went PS3 exclusive in recent years I basically had to frigging buy one ...

    And even shit like these sales could make a difference. Googling which console to get and comparing the lists regularly or seeing them at a friends house certainly doesn't help to convince people in favor of the xbox ...

    Microsoft has already failed so often in recent years when their competitors stepped up their game (as Sony did) outside of their stupid monopole-OS/SF market, so it just kinda worries me that 99,9999% of the ppl over here don't even cnsider getting a One. The only question for them is when to get the PS4. And quite a lot of them actually had a 360 on a casual level.

    Thanks for the warning for those getting it, but you telling us? With a 40% completion rate with 80+ achievements between each percentage? Didn't even think you gave a shit about completion.
    I really hate how this site is seemingly getting infested by people with your attitude. So what if he has a bad completion % in your opinion? How exactly does that stop him from being knowledgeable about achievements? Please get off you gaming high horse, and quit assuming things about people. /rant overheadspin

    It's almost 5pm Eastern time and today's list still hasn't even been posted. Maybe I was just spoiled with these already being posted when I got up each morning the last several days.:P

    Like others have said, just searching the games yielded the discounted prices. However, the Deal of the Week has changed, but the prices are not reduced i.e. The Bridge still shows as $9.99 so be careful if buying from Deal of the Week.

    Its been a few hours since I checked, but just be wary!

    *Edit: just checked again, and they are still showing full price.

    All Deal of the Week sales have been showing correctly for me (in Canada) for a couple of hours now, so it's probably just a slower-than-usual rollout due to the updating of the Countdown sale games.

    The Bridge will show as $9.99 if you do not have an Xbox Live Gold membership.

    Four titles have received a further discount since they went on sale yesterday: Deadlight, I Am Alive, Gotham City Impostors and Moon Diver have all dropped to $3.74. I think TA are having a well earned break. If you want any of the PopCap games grab them now, and look out for my Day 7 blog post in a couple of hours.

    Yeah, I'm gold so its not that. I know some people just rush through the purchasing and might get screwed, since the games may not be discounted yet for some.

    I really hate how this site is seemingly getting infested by people with your attitude. So what if he has a bad completion % in your opinion? How exactly does that stop him from being knowledgeable about achievements? Please get off you gaming high horse, and quit assuming things about people. /rant overheadspin
    In my opinion? What? No dip shit it's 40%, it is bad as a FACT. So is yours (not as bad). This website is for achievement hunters, why do you come here? You're not an achievement hunter at all, you just like the odd completion so why bother trying to fit in?

    The dude doesn't go for achievements AT ALL, that's abundantly clear. 80 odd achievements for EACH single percentage at a 40% completion rate? The dude clears it, and dumps it, he's a casual, not an achievement hunter, and the numbers tell us that. Don't get all prissy because me (an actual achievement hunter) uses the website that was built for people LIKE ME. If the site is infested with people like me then the site is doing well, it's achieving what it strove for. You on the other hand take up space in comment sections, and you don't bother doing what the site intends to help us do.
    I hate stupid people, and that's most people these days. Gamers in particular have become a sad lot.

    there is a difference between achievement hunting and being a completionist. some us, though we enjoy achievements, do not feel compelled to finish every game we start. if the game is bad or we dont like it, we can move on without it bothering us. but then we find a game we love and we want to do everything, find everything, and experience everything. we use the site for help in instances like that.

    your attitude towards this gamer, and what you think this site should be truly is sad. the site is successful because it has a great community that help each other, not because of a completion percentage. i see you've only been here for 6 months, so maybe you havent seen/learned that yet but i hope you stick around a while and do.

    The thing about TellTale games is that they seemingly are very willing to let their stuff go on discount. It is the second Christmas sale where the first episode of their new series has gotten the first episode free as well as discounted season pass (last year wasn't the season pass but instead all episodes were discounted, similar for the most part). May be a reoccurring trend for TWD season 2 as well as their new properties.
