    When will GTA 5 for XB1 finally drop to bargain bin levels? It's had an incredible run...

    Oh hey you got this up first this week before the Xbox Achievements site did for once, they are really starting to get lazy with making sales/deals articles over there ever since last week.

    It's a bit frustrating that the One versions of some of those 360 sales like Jackbox, Back to the Future, TWD: Michonne and Minecraft Story Mode aren't also on offer. Knowing Telltale, theirs will be at some point though I guess.

    Oh really. That's surprising considering they mostly just copy MN's list, which has been up for a while now. I suppose Gamescom is keeping everyone quite busy.

    China Rising DLC was free two weeks ago... Hopefully from the looks of it, they are going backwards through the order with the Free Battlefield DLCs. I missed the first set they offered the week of May 3rd while I was on my honeymoon... Hope to grab those two I missed and then some cheap physical copies of 4 and Hardline on both versions :)

    Yeah I was disappointed when I saw they weren't for the One. If nothing else, I imagine all the Telltale games will go on sale during the holidays. They always seem to if I remember correctly. Not that I really want to wait that long though...

    Hmm, now that I've got the dlc for BF4 I'm not sure if I should buy the base game now or wait to see if it goes gwg.

    Haven't played BF before and it doesn't look as grindy to complete as I thought it might do so I'm kinda curious. Does anyone know though if the online is still pretty active?

    Glad to see GTA V. I was getting worried there for a bit that the 2 people who want it but don't own it wouldn't get to see it on sale again laugh

    I finally decided after the last Alien: Isolation sale I'd buy it the next time around... and it's on the 360. Give me a sale on the One and I'll buy it! Nothing worth picking up this week for, guess my bank account lives to fight another day.

    Man those rockstar sales are awful.

    Can anybody recommend battlefield hardline? That's the second time I've seen it at that price and I kinda don't wanna pass on it again. And I don't care about the achievements, just look at my comp %. laugh

    I'd buy back to the future if it was xbox one, hate going back to my 360

    Bought Back To The Future. It has to be a better movie tie-in than Jurrasic Park

    back to the future was one of the weaker of the TT series, its playable, but it dragged on and on and alot of the locations are rehashed. and alot of missable achievements if you dont use a guide.

    I didn't even realize there was a GoT game. Guess I'll be buying that!
    Thanks Chewie toast
    I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

    BTTF is worth $5. I've already finished the X1 version but I'm tempted to stack it...

    Same, and Hardline and Titanfall. All potential GwG.

    It's the final realisation I came to a couple of years ago that I am never going to get through my backlog (only 153 games completed out of 186 played out of 488 owned), so I probably shouldn't add to it.

    Is Jackbox Party Pack actually playable on 360? Do you need ad ons?
