    Wow! Now that's a sales list!
    I don't really know what I'm talking about.

    Alan Wake is showing as $19.99 on my 360. On Xbox.com, it shows as $9.99.

    I want to purchase the game with MS account money, but on Xbox.com it only gives me the option to pay with the credit card on file.

    Anyone know how to get around this?

    EDIT: Apparently you can't use MS credit to purchase this game. I attempted to download the game to my xbox one. The store on X1 shows the game as $9.99. When you change the purchase option, there's a message specifically stating that you can't use MS credit to buy the game.

    What a load of crap.

    Spent a bunch of time in chat with MS rep. She wanted me to delete my profile because her theory was a corrupt profile was causing the game to show up in the X360 store as $19.99.

    Morons.

    I see Rock 'N Racing Off Road DX has a user rating of 1.6. I'm usually an arcade racing fan. Is there anyone that can give me some information on this game? Is the 1.6 justified?

    Thanks!!

    Ryse: Son of Rome "Legendary Edition" (includes all DLC) - 50% off

I've tried several times. Ugh, this is so annoying. I sent a tweet to XBoxSupport about it but haven't gotten a reply. I did notice someone else tweeting the same question to them and they asked him to send them their GT in a private message. Don't they realize this is not a problem tied to gamer tags?

    Biggest haul for a sale that I've ever had:

    A Kingdom for Keflings
    NERO
    Beyond Eyes
    Oxenfree
    The Flame in the Flood

    Drowning in backlog, but that's nothing new. Bring on more indie sales!

    The credit card thing has been an issue for ~3 years now, since the last time they overhauled the 360 marketplace on Xbox.com. It's even acknowledged on Major Nelson's backwards compatibility FAQ, so it's probably by design. It sucks.

Not saying they will this time - but buyer beware.

    Well I was going to get Alan Wake, but it won't let me use my currency balance for some reason on the Xbox One and shows up as $19.99 on my xbox 360... joy

    Quick question. If I have a retail BC game that is on a disc and put it into my Xbox One disc drive, will it still work/can I still earn achievements for it?
