I knew waiting on saints row would've been worth it! two games for the price of 7.50 is extreamly good!
Happy gaming.

Lot's of other stuff is supposed to be on sale this week. I might pop back tomorrow with a list, until then - HolyHa1fDead's blog post - Special Offers and Free Stuff (23rd February 2016) UPDATED

Easiest way is to buy them on eBay.

They probably aren't compatible with your NTSC Xbox 360. This means you have to buy them on xbox.com. You will need another account for each country, with gold, with a valid payment method and billing address for that country. You could create one account for Germany, buy everything and then move the account to Japan and buy the rest (you can move an account once every 3 months). You will also get a free game from Japan on 16th March 2016, I just don't know which one yet.

Even then, if the content is region locked you will need a VPN to give yourself an ip address in that country, and that is where it starts getting dodgy (faking your billing address is also a bit iffy).

dropK1CK ninJA said:Metro needs BC. Ugh. I have it on my 360 w/ DLC forever.Yeah, it's called Redux, so I expect that means it is near the bottom of the BC pile. Spend the $7.50, enjoy both the new versions with all dlc included, and maybe one day you can stack the 360 achievements.

I tried downloading the bioshocks recently from the U.S. using the instructions to make an acct from the corresponding regions and couldn't get it to work. I'm in the U.S. and still have to find a way to get the update for the DE version as I bought discs offline. now I'm waiting for them to become bc.

Several things I might want here if they were BC. Maybe it's time to fix or replace the 360.

Any opinions on The Escapists? I've got a general idea of the gameplay, but I haven't seen it pan out just yet. Worth $10 for the whole set?

If I were to buy the DE version of Bioshock, would it work on my XB1 when it eventually becomes backwards compatible? I know I wouldn't have access to it on my NTSC 360, as stated above. Just wondering if I should buy this or not, in anticipation for it to get added to backwards compatibility so I can stack it later.

Damn this sale is good. Getting at least five games and many for half the price of a coffee.

The only thing pissing me off is that Bioshock burial at sea is never on sale. So I have to buy the season pass, which is cheaper, to get the one piece of dlc I don't have. angry

Sale this week is amazing. This it the kind of stuff I hope for every week. I caved and got the SR IV bundle. I'd been watching it for over a year. $19 on one sale, then $16 during the ultimate game sale.

Also thinking about grabbing GOW2 DLC.

Works for any other country.

If you have a german account, you can only download Bioshock DE, for example. Back in the day, the "normal" version of Bioshock was IP-locked for german gamers. Don't know about the SR's, but probably the same as a lot of games published in germany receive a lot of cuts before hitting the stores.
