    Demon Haze II said:Xbox.com needs to sort their pricing out, as silver price is in place of the non-sale price on some, and the normal non sale price is in the same place on others!It has always been this way on the Xbox 360. But they changed it for the Xbox One, so you can't see the sale price unless you sign in, and then it shows you your price.

    When I put these sale prices in for the 7 currencies we track (including Canada and Germany) I have two browsers open, one signed in with a XBL Gold account and one with an XBL Free account. That way I can determine if the sale is for everyone, just for Gold, or like this week, both!

    Yuup and it's bloomin annoying that you can't see all the pricing levels in one place and, if you've bought the item in question, can't see the prices at all. I guess they don't really build the store with you and me in mind Holy wink

I get the feeling it's more or less just auto posting a table he gets sent by a sales team though.

    FOKENWOLFEN said:Anybody knows if here are other Windows Phone game at reduced price besides Hitman Go?The Red Stripe Deals continue to run every week and feature several games. However since you are on TA, I expect you are only interested in Xbox Live enabled games, which sadly have not featured in this weekly sale for some time.

    The Hitman GO flash sale (all platforms) started a week ago on Thursday 10th March and so it may be finishing today. I would recommend the game, especially to those that like Hitman. It's a Universal App, so if you happen to have a Windows Phone you get it for both Win8 and WP8 for just $0.99 and the achievements stack. Those with iOS 8 may be interested in the Hitman Essentials bundle which includes Hitman: Sniper and is also reduced to $0.99 in this flash sale to promote the release of HITMAN.

    Limited Time Offers
    Hitman GO (WP) (includes Hitman GO (Win 8)) 80% off
    Hitman GO (Win 8) (includes Hitman GO (WP)) 80% off

    I think I'll go ahead and grab Monster Jam Battlegrounds... Even though I've been warned it is very, very bad laugh

    I know it's not on sale, but I was wondering... does the Arkham Knight Season Pass include all DLC? I was asking because a quick look at its Xbox page makes it look like it doesn't include the "Red Hood Story Pack" (I didn't check the others), but then, a quick look at the "Premium Edition" page doesn't show it either, and it says in the article that it includes all DLC.

    I was also asking because the limited edition is on sale over here, so I might buy that for the Batman statue and then shell out for the season pass later on when it's on sale.

    Yes, the season pass includes everything: https://store.xbox.com/en-AU/Xbox-One/Bundle/Batman-Arkham-K...

    The statue is pretty sweet though! :) It has a hidden switch with city lighting.
