    not sure if its a mistake or something but the AC Season pass for Black flag showed up as "free" for me in the store

    needless to say I grabbed that instead of buying freedom cry

    Ha actually I think I figured it out. I forgot they had a promotion if you purchased the season pass on 360 you got it for the ONE as well so that's probably why it showed up for me, I just forgot to go grab it when I finally got the ONE version

    Either way I would check that out first toast

    For the first time EVER, Pacman, Pacman CE and Galaga are discounted. I've never understood why these familiar names haven't been pushed by Namco into the deals much more often.
    One game is still oddly missing in this list, and that is the original Soulcalibur. Could Namco have forgotten that this game exists?

    Just brought the season pass and vip pass for forza and its not letting me install any of the content that they should both have? I have an xbox one, so does anyone know what to do about this? :/
    There's this official explanation about how to access the content through the Season Pass:
    http://support.xbox.com/games/game-titles/forza-horizon-seas...

    I guess you have to proceed a bit in the game first?
    (Sorry if I'm saying stupid things, I've not played yet. Some people are complaining about an achievement, so I'll wait...
    Thanks for trying to help and linking a solution page :) sadly it only really helps for the 360 and not xbox one :/ i thought on my games and apps section or the game hub part where it says whats installed dlc wise for each game, it should come up saying whats ready to install but nothing other than the season pass and vip pass came up :/
    That is correct. Once the Season Pass and VIP Pass are downloaded you need to launch the game and get to the point where you have access to the marketplace. You then download the available content through there.
    ... and it doesn't work. Been trying for a week to get the Season Pass content at the in game marketplace with no luck whatsoever. As I see it they're seling a Season Pass that no longer is supported.

    Maybe they'll fix it with enough complaints...

    Edit: ... and the miracle happen. It works now. It's not rock steady eddie but it works. If your Season Pass doesn't work... try and make a post about it :).
    Brill, thanks guys :D

    I'm getting real tempted to buy Tales of Vesperia at that price!

    I'm on the fence about Quest for Dungeons. I know achievements shouldn't make or break playing a game, but how tough of a completion is it?
    Ask me about my rock collection.

    Hey guys, I need your advise.

    Will you buy the bundle Dragon Ball xenoverse + Season pass or just the standard game? I mean the content on the season pass can make the achievements to get easy or it does not matter?

    Thanks

    "Forza Horizon VIP Membership and Cars Pack" (does not contain achievements, but additional cars are required to obtain them)

    What does this mean? "but additional cars are required to obtain them" what is them? the cars?

    The car packs do not contain achievements themselves but there are achievements in the game (specifically the 1000 Club Expansion Pack for Forza Horizon) that require you to have bought cars that aren't in the core game, but are in the additional car packs

    Just a heads up, in case for whatever reason you want to buy Assassin's Creed Unity, it's around £1.40/$1.89 on cdkeys.com.

    Awesome thanks Chewie, I did get the season pass earlier this week great deal for all the content, but I was on the fence of getting the vip membership, are the cars worth 2.50$ that it comes with? For use in the base game, and dlc packs?

    These are likely permanent reduction as the new Microsoft store differentiates sales quite clearly with discount lengths etc
