    Picked up Game of Thrones and Borderlands season passes on the X1. One the fence on a couple of others but I'll probably end up waiting.

    Would echo the comments of a few others that I was hoping for some additional DLC on sale. MS sales have gone from almost exclusively DLC and too few games to the opposite problem over the last year or so.

I'm not a big fan of G.O.D. since I like to be able to look at my discs.I know im the minority here..but i prefer to be able to play everything with a click on a button, without having to change discs...i actually bought watchdogs on this sale, just so i can get rid of the disc, lolSo am i the only one that thought "hmm since you don't want that disc anymore...." Haha

    So Mortal Kombat(2011) or Injustice for a casual button masher? Only going to get one. Thanks.

    Avoid Lords of the Fallen if you are a completionist. Enjoyable game but glitched achievements the developer has no intention of fixing.

    Dunno if anyone else mentioned this yet, but Lego Batman 3 is actually $18.75, not $13.75. It could just be in Canada, I don't have a way to confirm that.

    Also (in Canada at least) Game Of Thrones episode 1 is still free for both 360 and Xbox one, so save yourself some cash by purchasing episode 1, then the season pass episodes 2-6.

    Bleh, too many bundled stuff not on sale by itself. Would have considered the Far Cry 4 season pass if it was by itself.

    Sadly there is no DLC on sale again...

    I don't want to pay more for the DLC then the game itself.

    I ended up buying Goat Simulator, Monopoly Plus, The Legend of Kora, and Slender. Wonder if these are the last summer deals we will see?

    Picked up ACC:China, also getting Tales from Space: Mutant Blob Attack, Blood of the Werewolf, Monopoly Plus, and RISK. Was going to get Goat Sim for that price, but I have a feeling I'll be seeing it again on sale (or as a GWG, given its popularity), and 5 games is already enough.

    I'm waiting to see Jaws of Hakkon go on sale for the 360, since it gets a cross-buy free version on the One (don't think it works the other way around, though).

    ixnay37 said:Lego Batman 3 bundled with the season pass for less than the cost of the season pass itself was too good an offer for me to pass up.Damn it, just got back on the internet to find this sale has already finished on the Xbox One (even though it is still running on the Xbox 360 as usual) angry. Lego Batman 3 Deluxe was one hell of a deal, perhaps the best deal I have ever seen. Put like this "if you buy the Season Pass at a discounted price, you will get the game for free".

    I'm not sure how long the Xbox One deal of the week has not been lasting the full week after if becomes official (xbox dashboard, xbox.com), but this was a sucky way to find out.

    NO1KEV said:Generally I think the digital pricing is an utter con there is no reason what so ever that a digital version should EVER be more expensive than a retail versionDigital pricing should at most equal retail pricing. However in some countries retail stores are in competition with each other, and offer the game at a reduced price, but there are also digital sales (as we see here). Ditribution method should only be a tiny part of the cost of a game. Sending out bits of plastic in padded bags has a cost, as does paying an ISP and running file servers across the globe.

    • The Walking Dead & The Walking Dead: Season Two Bundle - 50% off - Now US$25.00 / £20.00 / €25.00 / AU$32.48 (40% discount for Silver members)

    Well, I had pre-ordered these two games individually as soon as they were announced. I guess this was my wakeup call. I pulled them out of my backlog and have just completed both of them.
