    Can you only buy Dad Beasts Dad from the US marketplace or something?

    I know that on the 360, if you were to buy a game from a different region's marketplace you would need that particular region's MS currency. With the Xbox One, is it the same case or could I just use my card or paypal?

    Dad Beat Dads looks like some easy gamerscore, might grab that. I am also interested in The Bunker.

    Have to agree, and it's well past time for a real sale on GTA5. I'd probably jump at $15, but this $30+ crap as a *sale* is crazy.
    That's what being typically one of the top selling games for the PS4/One every month since release gets you, even when the game has been out for multiple years (which is almost unheard of). The game is so successful on latest consoles with no signs of slowing so Rockstar/Take-Two can price it as they see fit and it still sells, and that's not even counting what they must be bringing in through GTA Online.

    In short: don't expect any major sale below $30 on GTA V for the PS4/One until Rockstar releases its next title for those consoles. It's shown the staying power to still demand full price until that moment comes.

    Gonna pick up Dad Beat Dads. I wish Coffin Dodgers, Bunker, and Dear Esther were cheaper so I can wait.

    Also if the 360 sales are to be believed and they ever go live I'll pick up Axel & Pixel for supposedly $2

    Thinking about Fenix Furia but I've already got quite a few hard as nails platformers staring a hole into me because they're still not complete. :(

    Yeah, I just got it for $30 at Gamestop last week, and that was part of their weekly sale. That's the cheapest I've seen it so far. And it's been out for 2 years (the current gen version anyway).

    The fact a game can be 35% off and STILL be £35 is a bloody ruse.

    The bunker is a very good game and a great experience. It is definately worth the sale price. A must play with easy game score.

    Sweet! Grabbing up Furia and Dad. Wish a few others were a bit cheaper, but I can wait!

    GTA V with Shark card on sale. Again.

    Hey, Larry, when you said that you were going to "have talks" with the sales team to make sure we don't get the same garbage, did this come off as the new approach? To get the same fucking trash put on sale every few weeks because MS aren't willing to make new contractual agreements with publishers to put new content on sale? I used to always be interested in the weekly sale changes, but you know what, after seeing the same content put on sale, over and over... and over, I came to the realization that they just aren't even trying anymore.

    Summer sale was mostly awful. Winter sale wasn't memorable. Hell, I don't even remember the last thing on sale that I bought because it was so damn long ago.

    I'm sure someone will come in and retaliate against my opinion defending the current state of sales, in which case you're probably just finding anything to latch onto for a sake of 'debate' when there's no debate to be had. The sales have been mostly awful, and that's more in line with it being the same content rather than fresh new content that has never been on sale more than once.
