Never saw those before. This game has so much separate shit it sucks. I just want another simple one like the Williams Pinball disc. :(

    Wessmonster said:Where do they source their sales from? The format looks very similar to another site, straight down to the order the currencies are listed in and the way they are separated.The sales are sourced direct from the marketplaces. The format for these articles have been the same for years. I usually spend anywhere between 2 and 4 hours compiling and formatting, as well as populating the sales hub along with members of the Sales team, so if there's another site doing it the same either it's a coincidence or them copying us. We also usually include Japanese pricing and the new release limited time discounts but because of the lateness this week we decided to forgo it.

Essentially between the 2 packs you can get all of the current achievements for the game. No cross buy between the 360 and XB1 that I'm aware of. I already owned several of the tables on the 360 and didn't have anything on the XB1 until I bought these 2 season packs. But for the 360 I'm pretty sure you only need season 1 to get all of the achievements.

    Just Zen Classics (Pinball FX2) for me. I think I have every other table I want for FX2 packwise. I wish they would do sales for the one-off tables. Even just a $1 would help.

    do the Zen table licenses still transfer from 360 to bOne? Debating about seeing what holes need filling if that's still in effect...

    I got the only Marvel Pinball table set I didn't had: Vengeance and Virtue.
    I wish they would put the other individual ones in packs. Like Venom, Dr. Strange, Ant-Man and the rest...

    Yes, all of the DLC tables are in season 1. You would still need to buy the base game if you don't already have it as well.

    To anyone that has bought (and played) the season packs of the 360 version of Pinball Arcade after already having bought the game and its smaller two-table packs: did you encounter problems getting your new tables to work properly?
    I keep reading about all sorts of problems that people bumped into right after the season packs were released. Game progress and high scores disappearing, needing to redownload all the season 2 and 3 tables each and every single time you play the game because they vanish each time, the game's title, and therefore, placement in your game list changing from "The Pinball Arcade" to whatever table pack you last downloaded... It appears to be a hopeless and rushed mess.
    Did you encounter these problems too? I cannot discover if these problems are still occurring or if Farsight has fixed them. ...Yeah, I'm not holding my breath either.

    Yes, all of the DLC tables are in season 1. You would still need to buy the base game if you don't already have it as well.
    In that case it is cheaper to buy the base game and the 3 DLCs separately instead of seasson 1 bundle

    True, from an achievement only perspective that would be the cheapest route. But if you enjoy the game for a few bucks more you will get a lot more tables. Plus in the highly unlikely event they do a title update that adds more achievements you would be in a better place.

    Personally I bought the base and the first 2 table packs on the 360 before it got delisted. I haven't purchased any of the season bundles for the 360 and probably won't since they aren't cross buys. So I can't answer the question if purchasing a season bundle when you already own table packs causes issues.

    Aargh, why!?!
    Because some developers just want to watch world burn... laugh DMC has been on my list for some time and also includes the DLC. Looks like MS is playing fair and starting to include the DLC in its sales now!

There are several other DLC packs with achievements in Bad Company 2 and none of them are on sale.

    Sigh. I'm just butthurt because none of the ones I need are on sale cry
