    A sale on a game that's near impossible to get into a multiplayer session is still lost money. :/
    Hardcore players still play, you can get all cheevos without being online. Or with one person its all doable.

    60% off Game Of Thrones when you've just released the last episode?

    That's a kick in the face for anyone who paid full price.
    TT Games likes to pull this shit off.
    The BL-pass went on sale before they even released Ep2.
    Minecraft story mode is over 50% off after 2/5 episodes released...thats a true kick in the face TT
    Where do you see it on sale for over 50% off?

You bought it, so it's yours to play indefinitely.

    That's what I was doing with the XB1 Games with Gold before I actually had my XB1! laugh

    I don't understand how the game of thrones it says its episodes 1-6 for $12. Then the "season pass" which is episodes 2-6 is $12.50.. Am I reading it wrong?..

    Why are you cussing out Microsoft about a game Telltale put on sale?
    Its funny how people blame MS or Sony for every game related issue they don't like even though they have nothing to do with it. Easy scapegoat I guess.

    Most of these games for the entire sale can be had for less on disc, even after the 10% VIP rebate. I got Mad Max, Batman, and Mortal Kombat for $20 each, Dishonored DE for $12, and Dark Souls 2 for $15 at Best Buy. Got the disc version of Minecraft Story Mode from Amazon for 360 and Xbox One for $15 each. I'll grab the season pass for Batman from the digital sale.

    The Wolfenstein bundle is probably the best deal there, since just Old Blood retails for $20 and could be grabbed for $10 from Newegg earlier this week with a promo code. $16 for both games if you don't own either is a good deal. Hmmm...it may be TOO good of a deal. Could we be seeing one of these as Games with Gold soon? shock

    Let's remember to keep things PG13.

    Aside, physical sales seemed to still hold the edge to digital. I wonder what the hang up is. Publishers trying to get a bigger piece of the pie?
    Ask me about my rock collection.

    If I was incredibly terrible at the R6:Siege beta, would CS:GO (inc. single player) not be for me? I do fine with CoD single / L4D multi.

    These are both dumb arguments. Some people don't buy physical discs, so it doesn't matter if they're cheaper than the digital one.

    And, discounting a game after someone bought it at full price isn't Microsoft's blunder, it's yours.

    Ever played CS? CS has no sp. Its strictly online/offline with bots. Escorting hostages, search and destroy type games. Is all there is.
