    This is so much better

    One idea though... the spoiler alert kinda ruin the whole design... would it be possible to put a downarrow in the last column after AU prices, that would do the same thing?

    Personally I don't care about trailers and game description..just a genre added would be more useful... even if its just Microsoft basic genres. Then I will know fast, if its something I want to check out.

    I personally don't see a need for Japanese prices..i already think there is too many different currency shown.
    I'm used at just watching US prices, and then in most cases I will know what the local price range is.

    Basically..i would rather want less info, and more frequent newsposts.....two weeks after release, I will already have found the titles, so these posts is always kinda useless to me for that reason..i will rather have it simple, and easy for you,(no trailers and descriptions, and only 1-2 currencies) and then a post every Tuesday and Friday. Or at least once a week

    Neon Chrome is one of the best couch co-op games I've played. We really had a blast the other night. Also a must have if you fancy twin stick shooters

    Many, including me, addressed the width of the tables. Couldn't they be coded to align itself depending on how long the title is?

    Suggestion to save spoiler tags: The tables could include space for official websites and trailers for the game.

    Valentino Rossi, Dishonored 2 and soul Axiom are all corrected - thanks to the people who pointed those out. To answer some questions/concerns:

    BqCaduceusMD said:When is The Devil's Daughter releasing in the USA?I can't find the quote right now, but BigBen hit issues while trying to publish the game in North America. They're trying to sort these issues out right now but don't have a release date for this region at the moment.

    BulgyDragonZord said:The most important thing I would say I would like kept even though it's not mentioned is anything that gets "De-Listed". Beside a couple other features on this page, that's the main reason why I tend to pass by on these Roundup Pages to see if it's a game I own, not got, should have bought or regret buying it. The De-Listing also includes Downloadable Content as well.We're still planning on covering delistings on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. These haven't appeared in the article for a while because there haven't been any of late. However, I've stopped covering Windows 8 and Windows Phone delistings because of Microsoft's habit of only removing them from certain stores i.e. a Windows 8 game would be removed from the Win 10 store but would remain on the Win 8 store. I don't have access to multiple phones and operating systems and it became impossible for me to verify these properly anymore.

    TheMaize said:One idea though... the spoiler alert kinda ruin the whole design... would it be possible to put a downarrow in the last column after AU prices, that would do the same thing?At the moment, no it isn't. My only options are spoiler alert or immediately visible. However, I have a few ideas for this to discuss with Rich for the future. At the moment, though, spoilers are the best I can do.

    Twinkling82 said:Many, including me, addressed the width of the tables. Couldn't they be coded to align itself depending on how long the title is?They do and they did last week too. You can see this in the New Games section. However, when you have titles of dramatically different lengths, you're always going to have some that spill onto two or more lines. The tables are already at the full page width and there's nowhere else for them to go.

I've even tried to show you how the tables adjust in this news article itself.All columns are of the same width. If they were more flexible, so most titles would be one line, it would look more clean. But it is how the code works, and can't be fixed on newshound level.

    With all of these different editions now, (deluxe, gold, digital deluxe, super deluxe etc.) can a symbol of sorts be added to indicate which include season passes if possible?

    And thank you for the spoiler tags! Looks so much nicer.toast

    NOTES. for those who care.

    The spacing resulting from the spoiler alerts between the games is way too much creating the need to scroll down too far.

    I don't see the need to include all the pricing for half of the line. isn't there a way to region specify like in all the other pages so we are able to only have one price.

    Honestly, the whole thing is too long (even though there were several items, it felt far too long)

    the info behind the spoiler tags makes it better thou!

    I like to see trailers of games or dlc that I'm interested in,the description I think you should keep too because there are people on the site that read them. There's nothing stopping people that don't read them from scrolling past it. The more information the better.

    Just looking at it again, I think this would apply more to the DLC section but there is a lot of wasted space under the game title.


    Could the game title be placed above the chart and that space given to the DLC title?
