Is the FH2 Car Pass worth it? Got the game recently and looking to start it one day soon.

Those deals are pretty great if you live in the US, not so good if you live in the Uk/Europe, most of the games are much cheaper on the US marketplace with the various discounts, which I really don't understand to be honest.

US$34.99 / £38.49 • Dying Light - 30% off
US$12.00 / £20.00 • LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham - 60% off
US$6.60 / £10.56 • LEGO Marvel Super Heroes - 67% off
US$8.00 / £12.80 • LEGO The Hobbit - 60% off
US$12.00 / £22.00 • Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - 60% off
US$16.00 / £20.00 • Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor - Game of the Year Edition - 60% off
US$8.00 / £12.80 • The LEGO Movie Videogame - 60% off

ONE OF THESE CURRENCIES IS NOT LIKE THE OTHER.

Microsoft, you can shove those prices up your price-gouging arse.

And for those that think I'm complaining about nothing? Let me illustrate the differences:

Current exchange rate: £1 = $1.515
US Prices - UK Prices in US$ - UK Price compared to US price in %
US$34.99 / $58.31 / 166.6%
US$12.00 / $30.30 / 252.5%
US$06.60 / $16.00 / 242.4%
US$08.00 / $19.39 / 242.4%
US$12.00 / $33.33 / 277.7%
US$16.00 / $30.30 / 189.4%
US$08.00 / $19.39 / 242.4%

These so-called 'sales' are where the UK are paying way more than double the amount than the americans in most of these listings.

Microsoft... sort your shit out, because this is unacceptable. And don't hide behind the 'tax' excuse either. The tax is 20%. NOT 177.7%.

+1 all the way. Thank you for doing the sums. Absolute rubbish the UK has their pants pulled down on these sales. I know we are not the only ones either but its getting beyond a joke.
Happy Gaming

I know we are not the only ones either but its getting beyond a joke.I agree. I might start making this a weekly occurrence and tweeting it each week to @MajorNelson and @Xbox. Hopefully if enough people retweet it they might pull their fingers out of their backsides and start treating the non-American countries much more fairly price-wise.

It was the biggest let down in the series. I was confident from the first two games that war chest would be great but I should've read reviews. Lesson learned. Lesson learned hard.

This is bleeping unacceptable. Especially the Aussies get shagged up the backside with these discounts every single time. But even to EUR it's bleeping ridiculous.

Most likely NCAA Football 14 for me. A small part of me is tempted to get the Arkham Origins Season Pass too, but I heard it was for the most part rubbish. So I'll prolly pass on the latter.
