    Those percentages for Deadpol and Spider-Man aren't right. They're both normally $29.99 and $17.99, and the sale is only a few bucks instead of 50% off.

    It's amazing the frequency the past Games with Gold games are going on sale.

    ChewieOnIce said:In addition, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt receives discounts for both Silver and Gold members.

    Call of Duty: Ghosts - 60% 67% off - Now US$19.80 / £18.15 / €23.10 / AU$33.07 / ¥2281 (50% 60% off for Silver members)
    Even a normal sale is massive compared to the weekly sales just a few years ago - Deal of the Week: August 30th, 2011. The NewsHounds and SAP Team had an easy time of it back then Chewie wink

    If you like AC but haven't played Liberation, then at 75% off that would be my pick this week. Witcher 2 is also a steal at 85% off.

    Kanchanaburi said:It's amazing the frequency the past Games with Gold games are going on sale.If it was a XBL Free sale, it would make some sense as those are the people that might not have got it as a free GwG, but making them a XBL Gold exclusive sale is just dumb. The only thing I can think of, is if your Gold was about to run out and you were not planning on renewing and you want to keep an Xbox One GwG (that's a lot of ands).

    Tempted on AC Rogue, but the trifecta of Bean Dive recovery, backlog, and Cashback Challenge are convincing me to hold off until it's next sale, or maybe even wait out for Games with Gold (seems likely with AC II and AC IV having been GwG).

On the 360 marketplace, when there's a Silver sale they reduce the base price itself and when there's a Gold sale they add it as a separate price. When there's both you're looking at two sale prices.

    I'm kind of scared to pick up Rayman: Origins since last month's sales became this month's Games With Gold. It's only $5 though, oh well. I wanted to play it when it came out and never got around to picking it up.

    I'll check out The Deer God, been playing quite a few platformers lately. Hopefully this one is pretty good.
    Hotter than Abba in Nevada sun, in a real small car, with the windows rolled up. OH!

    Only things I'm tempted by are the cheap Rayman and maybe that Nova game if I see some reviews of it.

    I thought Deadpool was removed from the XBL store? Didn't Activision lose all the Marvel licenses a while ago?

    Anyone else that think the games that go on sale should have the games dlc:s go on sale for the same % as the base game? I'm tired of old mp dlc:s costing more than the actual gameangry

    Man, I really want Witcher 3, but I don't know when I will have the time to play it. What are the odds that it will be back on sale before the end of the year? Holiday sale, maybe?

    I have been waiting on Deadpool and Assasins Creed Rogue and both are way overpriced still. Deadpool is 2 years old and Rogue is almost a year
