I've noticed a few errors on this list. Injustice: Gods Among Us is actually $4.99 and Saints Row IV is BC, not 2.

The rest of your questions - no idea...

I bought The Witcher 2 (the "EU version") and it doesn't appear on my XONE (neither in queue nor in Ready to Install). Does it have to do with me having my console's locale set on US, instead of my EU country?

Hadn't have any issues with other purchased games with these settings, so I guess that "EU" thing is the problem.

Microsoft need to sort their shit out and stop discounting bundles instead of seperate DlCs, they are basically shitting on the people who paid full price to get the game by making them pay full price for dlcs too, makes you wonder whether its worth buying games at lauch or just wait a couple months to get games AND theis season passes at HALF THE FUCKING PRICE!!!!!!
I will not demand an answer but i will expect one

Thanks for the corrections guys. I'll try and add them in tonight but I can't guarantee it. The sale article is now so big that it crashes my browser whenever I try and open it. shock

Fallout 4 Digital Deluxe Bundle worth it? Doubt the season pass will be on sale separately..

Had to go and buy $50 gift card because E prices were bit too high for Batman Arkham Knight Premium Edition and Shadow of Mordor GOTY. That leaves 15$ to use for something good, like Saints Row Metro double pack.

2) No, neither of them stack. They share a list with the Xbox One versions. 3) No, they aren't cross-buy supported titles.
Hooray for Windows 10!

Yes, you will need to change your console's location to somewhere in the EU temporarily to see that version of the game in your Ready To Install list. Once it's downloaded you can switch back.

Minecraft story mode (win 10) is also on sale (26% off, 3,69 EU instead of 4,99 EU)

Cheers, I have added the prices for the other regions to the Sales Hub.

I want a deal on the deluxe season pass (2-8). Maybe once 8 has been released.

http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/66acd000-77fe-1000...
then we copy and paste the price. Then we go to
http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-CA/Product/66acd000-77fe-1000...
and copy and paste the price. Then we repeat that for
http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-AU/Product/66acd000-77fe-1000...
http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-GB/Product/66acd000-77fe-1000...

http://marketplace.xbox.com/ja-JP/Product/66acd000-77fe-1000...

Chewie then has to add the prices for all the items that don't have achievement lists, such as bundles and season passes.

It has literally taken us days to do that for the hundreds of items on sale this week, so our apologies for it taking so long to get this out this week

This is correct.

The best thing to do for each Windows 10 game you are interested in, is go to the game page. Look at the Game Information panel for Platform:. For example OXENFREE says Windows, Xbox One, but Rise of the Tomb Raider only says Xbox One, because Rise of the Tomb Raider (Win 10) has it's own achievement list.

From now on, all Microsoft published Windows 10/Xbox One games (single achievement list) will be cross-buy. They have not said if there are any plans to apply that to previous releases.

I ended up buying The Evil Within for X!
Counter Strike GO since it was Backwards compatible
Layers of fear
Life is strange for X1

The only other one i am thinking of getting is deadpool does anyone know how this game was looks like it might be fun but trailers and pictures can be misleading

Assassin's Creed is marked as Backwards Compatible. As far as I can tell on the XBOX website, it's actually not.

Can anyone confirm one or the other?
