    I don't know why I come in these posts. "Oh, look at all the games I might be playing in a year or more." lol I'm still on my Xbox 360 playing games like MLB Front Office Manager and Aliens: Colonial Marines. Though, I did get to play The Escapists: The Walking Dead on Sunday and Monday for review, so once in a while I get some newer goodies to play.

    I guess I just like being on top of the news.

    PhilTheStampede said:wait....why is the first episode of minecraft: story mode $5, the season pass $20, but the complete series $30????I saw that too. The store price is $25.

    My backlog is so heavy that even though I want to play this, I'll wait for the inevitable Black Friday price drop.

I never bought the Episodes for Kinect Sesame Street TV at all and the Clips have made me unlock some achievements which I wasn't aware of. Now I'm stuck with 125G out of 2000G : (I feel you man! It sucks that I actually started Kinect sesame street tv and got some achievements. Luckily I already completed the Nat geo but I feel bad for anyone who hasn't.So do I, I'm going to get Kinect sesame street tv disc on Xbox 360, but I'm going to slowly finish it since I don't want people to see me play it, lol not a game I can play with 2 people. It's also not the same without it, because then it's not as enjoyable.
    Love playing ALL XBOX games! :) 3,345 gamerscore as of right now!

    I can't decide whether to get 2300 Destiny Silver or the DOA Halloween costumes.

    NO ONE SHOULD spend the full amount for all the episodes!!! Not only did they take much longer than promised on GOT and Borderlands, they have all went on sale for far less than the orginal price and they STILL HAVEN"T been fully released.

    Rock Band 4 DLC is listed under the Xbox 360 section. It's an Xbox One game only though. Might wanna fix that.

    the whole concept of 'Minecraft story mode' seems so asinine, but the VA cast, argh

    I'm pretty confused about the retail version of Minecraft Story Mode. Are the digital episodes coming out once a week? The disc comes out the 27th so that's hardly enough time to come out with all 4 digital episodes. Or is the disc just an unlock for the season pass and you have to wait like people who own the digital version?

    That sucks if Telltale is starting to do that with their games, i like to play all the episodes when they are released on disc after they are all out on the dashboard.

    I bought the disc versions of Kinect Sesame Street and Kinect Nat Geo, but I was confused about the different versions. No idea there were different achievement lists for digital versions of the games. Guess it doesn't matter now.

    I also saw that Game of Thrones is doing the same thing and Amazon has it here: http://amzn.to/1Qu2NKs

    I love the disc version of episodic games because I can trade them in when I'm done. I'm glad Minecraft is actually putting the option out there up front so people who like the disc version know it's available.
    Thing is with the disc version you still won't have access to the rest of the episodes until they're out.

    They've ALWAYS done that until the full game is released.

    Yeah, exactly like it is with the digital version...but you can't sell the digital version when you're done with it.

    Anyone getting the "disc" version of Minecraft Story Mode BEWARE!
    The disc version only contains the first episode + a download code for the rest.
    Cancelled my order when I found out.

    They were quite clear on it from day one of the announcement, though are we sure its definitely a code and not a content key on the disc? That'd be possible

    Only chapter one has been released so there's no way they'd put the rest of them on the disc version before they're released.

    The season pass content key is what I was meaning, the same file as on the marketplace
