Can't recommend Contrast enough. I really enjoyed the game, and highly recommend you try it out. I was happy at $9.99, so $3.74 is a super deal!

Or maybe there was so much feedback about how bad this weeks sale is, they added a few more things to it. For now, who knows!

Plus, you forgot to mention a delist! RUSE has been delisted, because of military licenses that have been expired.

And, you can remove Sherlock Crimes and Punishments from the list as it got expired.

Thanks for posting this toast. It explains this:HolyHa1fDead said:Here's an odd one for you from HolyHa1fDead's Blog

Watch_Dogs (Xbox 360) 40% off (50% with Gold)
Someone at Microsoft clicked on the wrong tick box and made this available to all regions. That's a pretty good sale you've got in Latin America this week, for example:

Far Cry 4 Season Pass for 12.87 Reals ($3.57 USD).

I'm tempted to add yet another currency to my Microsoft wallet.
I accidentally stumbled on the Brazilian sale as well today by visiting Xbox.com (note that I'm a German user). Took me a while to figure out that these were new deals and exclusive to Latin American countries.

Immediately bought the FC4 Season Pass :D

The gameplay idea is alright, but the execution could be better and the controls are quite poor. While it has its own style it's not very pretty to look at either. The game is rather short too and has absolutely no replay value. I remember it having some technical difficulties as well (mostly bugs).
Overall there are so many better games to buy (especially on 360) for the same or a similar price.

Glad that now sales are for all users.

Granted my FC4 Season Pass already.

Contrast is well worth it for that price. Highly recommend it to those who haven't had the chance to play it yet!

Want TWD: season 2 to go on sale on 360, seem to miss it every time it happens.
Sleep is so overrated.

I do not know what they are playing at but this is not a fair play for sure. Some of these games/bundles were part of the spring sale just few days ago, and they were more expensive, like the Minecraft story. Thus, it is not fair at all for people who bought them at spring sale.

Something is not working well at Microsoft, poor offers for weeks and now this. Absolutely disappointed!!
