Spilner said:sassydot said:Word around prior to this sale was that all the 360 titles featured in it would be BC. Can anyone confirm whether this is true? I'd love to pick up Horizon, but as I don't have a 360 it will be a waste of money if it's not BC.Where did that word come from? Are you perhaps getting mixed up with the old announcement that all future GwG titles would be BC?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-moBu1PHzxw&feature....be at ~5 mins
I'd also seen it stated in other places leading up to the sale too

I see now it's only showing a 25% discount for me not the 75% stated in MNs blog post as well :/

Really good sales this week. I picked up Halo MCC finally, It's going to take forever to complete but I love Halo. I also picked up the Sunset Overdrive season pass, I haven't even tried that game yet. Annd I got Oxenfree, Gone Home, Teslagrad and Rock N' Racing. I spent around $90 on games including tax. There's more I want here but my backlog has gotten out of control.

I look forward to these sales every week. Sometimes the sales are good and some weeks the sales aren't. However this week offers some good selections on both consoles. Wish I could take advantage on the sales for both consoles cry. Looks like I will be getting Xbox One games this time round; Letter Quest: Grimm's Journey Remastered, Lifeless Planet, NERO, Rock 'N Racing Off Road DX & Three Fourths Home: Extended Edition. (and my backlog just keeps on growing)
Gimme the loot

The news item is missing the percentages for those who do not have Gold and are on XBL Free. Great work getting this monster sale up quickly Eurydace, but I think the person who peer reviewed it should be fired, and you should give the job to me wink

If anyone has time, could someone give me a list of games in pm or something that might be worth while picking up? Maybe a few single player ones for me, but bigger ones that I can play local coop in perhaps.

Quite a big mixture! Might get the season pass for Sunset as been wanting to play it.

Just a shame that dlc doesn't go on sale much. Really need A World of Keflings, Dead Space 2, Crackdown 2, Halo 4, MW3 (to name a few) dlc done, but not at their current prices. cry

I'm digging the free DLC; I've never played those games and I'm not sure if I ever will, but that is a bit of incentive. Wish they'd give out free DLC more often.
