    Definitely going to get BF4 now. I've been on the fence but for that price I can't pass that up.

    They've said before that the DLC is 'NEVER coming back' but the games themselves sort of appeared on XBLM out of nowhere.

    Thank god I never got rid of mine. It was a steal at $29 5 years ago and to this day I feel the same way.

    How can they justify those prices on the Marvel games? One is 9 years old, the other is 6 and they are both for a last gen system. $5 each would have been acceptable, maybe even up to $10 at a (very big) push. Anything over that is crazy.

    It used to be (And might still be) that if you purchase it on the 360, you also get it on the One, but it's never worked the other way around.

    I was shocked to see the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games on there. I remember buying the DLC for both of them many years ago when they briefly returned before being delisted again. I had no idea that there had been some sort of deal made to re-list the games themselves earlier this year. $40 a piece would be highway robbery, but I'm very tempted for less than 1/3 that price. Not that I see myself having the time or energy to place either one. But to be honest, that's 98% of sale games I buy. Which is depressing. laugh

    I have friends nagging me to get it, was really hoping to see the deluxe edition go on sale as effectively that's the best discount I'll get on the season pass smile
    Yep, and Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare (Xbox 360) 60% off (70% with Gold)

Just bought the 360 version Premium. It said in the description that it carries over to the ONE version but when I go to download it. It tries to charge me $24.99 so not sure if it carries over or not. And I must buy a disc copy as well.
    DEATH IS CERTAIN.

    RomanAround said:Battlefield 4 is an awesome game! £22 for the base game plus the premium pass is actually excellent value.

    Unlike BF: Hardline the BF4 premium pass is for 5 DLC map packs, adding 20 maps to the 10 in the base game. Plus it also added 5 game modes to the 7 modes that existed in the base game.

    On top of that DICE have released 4 additional, free DLC packs this year:

    1) Weapons Crate (New game mode and weapons)
    2) Night Operations DLC - New night time map and night vision gadgets/weapons
    3) Community Operations DLC - New map built from the ground up in collaboration with BF4 players.
    4) Legacy Operations DLC - A recreation of the 2 old maps from previous BF games, merged together into one huge map (Dragon Valley and Noshahr Canals), plus more new modes.

    Plus there is still more DLC to come, including 2 more night maps.

    So overall you'll be getting 14 game modes, 33 maps (soon to be 35), over 100 weapons and over 50 gadgets. Plus an OK single player campaign.

    Great value. Player counts are also much higher on BF4 than BF:Hardline and, unlike Hardline, lots of people play the DLC maps and all of the modes. (BF4's Peak concurrent player count on December 24th was 17,244 on Xbox One compared to Hardline's 6,789).
    Just out of curiosity where did you get those stats for concurrent players and the confirmation of 2 more maps? I love Battlefield also btw Highly recommend

    Yeah buy the 360 Premium, get the xbone version free
    Same for Hardline and Black Flag

    I don't think I'll be hanging on for anything amazing this year... Santa came and luckily I should be studying instead.

    Guys, MUA GoD is the Gold edition one...this means that it contains BOTH the DLCs.
    Hurry up, it's still on sale right now!
    Gold edition on disc is sold on amazon and ebay for about 50$...is it cheap for you?! Well, not for me, especially considering that this is a 2006-2007 game.

    Does anyone knows if also MUA2 GoD contains all DLCs?

    Damnit!! Thanks for the heads-up, Gottle but I didn't see this in time. Was the only thing stopping me from buying as well. They really should have updated the product listing when they re-added these to the marketplace a couple of months ago... Even if most people don't care about achievements, you'd think Activision would want to make it known that you're getting extra content included.

    Ah, well - least I know for next time. Thanks.

    Did make me laugh seeing the usual comments about them being cheaper elsewhere though... they aren't (in the UK anyway) but don't let facts stop you. roll
