Windows 10 Black Friday 10 Cent Sale

  • Posted on 22 November 15 at 13:38
    10 cents a game? AWESOME! Hopefully this is a sign that I wont be stuck with Steam for PC sales, although my Best Buy membership setup is competitive with some of the best sales out there. Fallout 4 for $27. Enough said.

    As for people complaining about the sale being in the US only... guys, do you know how long it took to get most of the non-US countries to even recognize Black Friday? Last I checked the UK was very much against it, although they've been adopting it slowly. This might be a good starting point for research. Further, I look at it like trying to buy a Russian CD Key to activate on Steam. Not all sales are equal, and it's not just the US/Microsoft that does this.

I tried this on TWO SEPARATE Windows 10 machines so it might be the OS. A warning to anyone trying to pick these up, play it on Windows 8 if you can.
    Game On.

    So even if I were to link my already made Australian Paypal account which has an Australian address, and then change my Windows region to US, using my Australian based Paypal won't work or give me the discount?
    So I will need to create a brand new Paypal account based in US?

    No, you can use your normal Paypal account. After you've confirmed that, the next step will ask you to type in your (US) adress. After you've confirmed that you can purchase the game.

    Today's movie deals:
    Pitch Perfect 2
    Ex Machina
    Inception
    Groundhog Day
    Office Space
    Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
    The Great Gatsby (2013)
    ET
    The Devil Wears Prada
    Enter the Dragon

    Again some good ones in there. Does anyone have anything to say about Ex Machina? I've heard good things about it. At $0.10 I'll probably just get it anyway laugh, but still nice to hear others thoughts.

    Having a @#$% of a time trying to get Windows 10 to authenticate when installed on a separate partition, but I was able to buy the games despite the unlicensed OS so mission accomplished I guess. dance

    Now how do I get Hitman Go crossbuy to work? Would be nice to get it on my phone as well, but frankly at 10 cents I'm not gonna riot if it doesn't work for some reason. laugh

    Now if mojang.com wasn't so ridiculously stupid, maybe I could get my free copy of Minecraft Beta Edition. THAT I will rage about. angry

Click on buy. It will then show you own this game, and you can click on install.

    On my Surface Pro 2 I changed my region to United States.
    I then was able to see the game (AssCreedPirates) for 0.10$.
    I went with PayPal and put in my address, but used Alabama as my state, with a postcode like 36006.
    It is 'working..........' at the moment.
    I'll update this post once the games download

    edit: the games (added AngryBirdsStarWars) are showing in my purchased transactions. And I can install and play them! woo

    I had all but 4 of them already, but I'm not going to argue with getting those. Started the purchase on my Win 10 tablet, canceled, and put them on my Win 8 laptop.
