    I just tried it to--at first I got an error code, and it wanted me to verify my account, then when I got back to the page it had the option to confirm the free download.... we'll see too. clap

    I don't think Trials Fusion will download for free. I've tried multiple times (I do actually want to buy it) but I get to the confirm payment page (which still says £0.00) and then I get an error. I didn't once, and it thanked me, but TF is no where to be seen on my Xbox One, my recent purchases or my download list.

    If you actually have managed to get it for free, you have actually loaded up the game and it's definitely the full one, free, then lucky you, but don't get your hopes up until then.

    I got it to download but then when I loaded the game it was just a trial.

    So just to be sure, the Undead Nightmare Collection does not require the original RDR disc, correct? I don't have the base game anymore but have always wanted to play the Undead Nightmare campaign. Any help is appreciated.

    Got some of the CoD DLC. Still a bit pricey IMO, but as long as it's atleast 50% off...I'm onboard.

    Also guessing it won't go below that...so might as well go for it. Is the multiplayer pretty active in all of the games, by any chance?

If you buy the Undead Nightmares Retail collection, you can play without the original disc, but I don't know if the digital "bundle" will work without it.
    Look at me so I can finish!

    There's no doubt that Rockstar Games do the best sales:
    1. 75% off, when other publishers only do 50%
    2. DLC is usually included as part of their sales

    This sale coincides with the release of the GTA V San Andreas Flight School Update and they don't even want money for it!

    What I would say is that some of the R* titles haven't been on sale since 2013 and the last time some of the others were on sale they were a Gold exclusive.

    If only other publishers would follow R* Games lead.

    Yup. It eventually showed up on my downloads and it's only the trial.
    Will still be buying it though, just need to decide if I want this one or plump for the full retail version with season pass. Chances are the season pass will be on sale eventually.

    Chunky Ninja said:Seriously,rockstar and cod sale again,still waiting for a sale on stranglehold,timeshift and enslaved,but that ain't gonna happen.Stranglehold actually cannot go on sale, as the publisher Midway is defunct and no one seems to know what happened to the rights for the game (US law mandates that prices on digital marketplaces are set by publishers, not platform holders, so MS can't change the price on its own). It's actually surprising it hasn't been pulled from the marketplace yet.

    DeviSlator said:Is there a season pass for the CoD MW3 DLC as can't see one on xbox.com?

    £5 a DLC is still too pricey
    There was a Season Pass for MW3 in the form of "Call of Duty Elite" (clearly an attempt to copy Battlefield 3's Premium) which used to cost $50 to "subscribe" to the "service" (wasn't much of a service at all back then and still isn't). It included all the DLC for MW3 and then the next year they made a proper Season Pass for Black Ops 2, and made Elite a free service. But since the final DLC pack for MW3 doesn't have achievements, you're better off buying them separately while they're on sale.
