Mirror's Edge 100% off and still costs $4.94.

I don't understand why Bully is $10. Maybe it's about to become BC.

Because it's good game, also I think the cheapest I've seen to get the retail version it's about £15

Everyone should know that if you buy the Assassin's Creed IV Season Pass on 360, it'll show up as free for you on the Xbox One store. This was a promotion that was supposed to expire years ago but it still works.

As for a lot of the other stuff...I don't understand why they put the 360 versions of a lot of content on sale but not the One versions. I'd really like to get the Watch_Dogs Season Pass on One.

Of fucking course they can put the Season Pass for Far Cry 4 on sale...on the 360. But put it on sale for the One? Apparently, it's nigh on impossible to divorce the season pass from the base game.

I already own Assassins Creed Chronicles China, but its cheaper to buy the trilogy and get all 3 games, then it is to buy India and Russia separately.

And whatever happened to the sales being easy to find on the dashboard or in games tab? If it wasn't for TA posting what was on sale every tuesday I would never know about any these.

This happened to me with a lot of the Ubisoft physical trilogies on 360. In the case of Far Cry Collection and the AC Americas Collection, I already owned two of the three games in each but it was still cheaper than buying the one game standalone.

I've been waiting for it to go on sale as well, so I can finish up the achievements. I know as soon as I buy it, it'll go on sale the week after. Happens every time.

While its annoyingly a waste of money to buy the Halo 4 pass to essentially boost as hardly anyone I bet will have it online, for completion sake I'm might have to jump on it.

Got AC III in the backlog but not sure if I should start it. Is it true the main game is quite glitchy achievement-wise? Otherwise I may end up buying the season pass for Black Flag if its true that it still carries over to the One.

Step in the right direction for putting dlc on sale though. Praying more will come along!

So many games on sale there but the only thing I've bought is the Porsche DLC for Forza 6. Probably a good thing - I have way too much to get through as it is.
I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

I got the 360 Black Flag pass and can confirm it also shows up for free on the One after buying it.

I think you missed the point, that anything that is 100% off is $0. It's a typo, should be 67% off. Also FH2 VIP is 75% off not 50%. But in a list as long as that, only two typos is bloody great going.

As for Bully, it has already been on sale over 20 times, typically for $3.74, so $10 does seem steep. http://xbldb.com/offers/002-151

But Chewie should get his pay doubled for listing all the Rocksmith tracks and packs. I saw them and said to myself no f'ing way am I going to list them. Heck, let's tripple Chewies pay then increase it by 100% wink
He's not a man. He's the holy Half-Dead who has seen the Underverse and returned with powers you can't imagine.

Shouldn't SSX have the (BC) tag?

To the people wondering why there are 360 season pass sales and not Xbox One versions, my guess would be that the 360 doesn't have the 'complete/premium/supermegaultra editions as digital. 360 wasn't great about digital bundles (which is why you had to download all the DLC in game for most season passes).
