    So did TA just make a mistake and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is really $10 and not $5? Or did Microsoft accidentally label it? I'm sure it's the former but I was wondering if there was any confirmation.
    No, we did not make a mistake on TA. I personally confirmed and typed in the prices for each of the seven regions when I created my blog yesterday - HolyHa1fDead's Blog. Sadly the prices have gone up since then. I have now updated the sale prices on TA for all seven regions. This is by no means the first time prices have changed during the course of a sale.

    All those price formats and Canadian isn't one of them? We surely have to be a decent segment of the user base.
    Accounts where people have set their country to Canada are 1.7% of the TA user base. Even though there are far less people who have set their country to Japan, many people outside Japan buy games from Japan.

    However, we type all the Canadian (and German) prices into the Sales Hub smile
    He's not a man. He's the holy Half-Dead who has seen the Underverse and returned with powers you can't imagine.

    Not the first time Bethesda has changed a price tag. *cough*

    Conviction and Double Agent are looking very, very tempting.

    Old Blood at £3.75 would have been good but I can't justify at £7.50.

    Got excited as the New Vegas DLC was on offer, then realised the limp discounts on them. Might grab the base game though as my disk no longer works.

    Just saw "The Fall" is reduced from €9,99 to €1,50 in the EU and wasn't listed above.
    The Fall

    Not sure for how long this sale is holding up but hey, easy 1000 GS! wave

    All Fallout 4 DLC prices are fixed and I've now updated the Wolfenstein price to reflect Microsoft's price change.

    I've just added this into its own section with the random ID@Xbox title that also didn't fit into the Spotlight sale. Thanks for pointing it out!

    Fallout 4:
    Vault-Tec Workshop $4.99
    Contraptions Workshop $3.74
    Far Harbor $18.74
    Wasteland Workshop $3.74
    Automatron $7.49

    Total $38.70

    Is there more DLC expected for this title or is the extra $1.29 for the Season Pass a "Can't Do Math" tax?
    There's more for the "can't read the season pass description" people.
    Didn't see anything saying there is more DLC coming in the Season Pass description. Still don't. https://store.xbox.com/Xbox-One/Bundle/Fallout-4-Season-Pass.... Perhaps you can show me where it is.

    What I did do is research it and update my original post with an explanatory link. Four minutes before your ever-so-helpful post...

    Good thing I picked up Old Blood when it was at 75% off yesterday morning before they fixed it!

    For people who thought The Park was too short to pay full price, now may be a good opportunity.

    EndWar for $5? You can't even play Theater of War anymore, they shut down those servers years ago, I still have like two or three achievements from ToW I'll never get, and that's not counting the unobtainable Dog of War achievement.
    Gatekeeper 3-6 off your starboard wing, turn to 2-2-0 and drop to angels two or you will be fired upon!

    Really stoked that I managed to buy Old Blood before the price increase. I wasn't even sure if I should get it that price but now it's even more appealing. I feel like I've got a naughty gem.

    Will probably play it in 2019

    I was going to buy this at the end of the week for $20 so I am happy as piss that it's only $10 but 75% off would have been great LOL

    Is it me or is it harder to find the sale games since the update? You can find the regular sales games by going to the gold section BUT there is nothing listing all these Bethesda games at all. if it wasn't for the site, you'd never know they were on sale.
