    Why does MS continue to offer digital downloads at markups of what they can be snagged for online?

    This is a bad example of this practice. Microsoft sets their prices to be competitive, and in this case I don't really see why it would need to be cheaper. The Special Edition just came out and people have been scooping it up for full price.

    It was well known that the game would be $30 come Black Friday, I think most retailers were offering it for $35.




    On a separate note, could someone please explain the DLC situation for Rise of the Tomb Raider? If I purchase the base game with the Season Pass, does it include all of the content? Or will I end up having to spend another $20 on the other expansions that could be purchased with the 20th Anniversary Edition?

    Been waiting for that Fallout 4 Season Pass to drop. Quantum Break still seems overpriced even at half off though... wink

    Thanks, I overlooked that one, couldn't let it go at that price either.

    i dont think it is, while its no doubt a great game, it has zero replayability, and is easily completed 100% in probably 10 hours.

    i rented it from my library for free and finished it that week. super easy game.
    While rocking is right, it's easy and somewhat simple and no insentive to go back once story and collectibles are done (2 playthroughs needed for story choices), the experience is worth the asking price.
    gamingirl on hiatus, new project underway - can't wait to try and raise the numbers again!

    Awesome, thank you. I've been waiting patiently for the base game to drop to $20, maybe it's worth it at $30. Either way, I can grab the season pass now for cheap and decide later!

    Does anyone have any thoughts / experience on if the deluxe version of PvZ:GW2 is worth the extra over the normal version?
    For $2.50, I'd just go ahead and jump on the Deluxe Edition (it costs $10 for the upgrade from standard to deluxe after the fact). The Z7 character is exclusive to owners of the Deluxe edition and you get a few exclusive customization options. But you get a character pack and 200,000 coins which can be used to unlock a few more character variants (there are tons) from the get-go.

    So the Evil Within season pass is £4.79 on Xbox One but £8.99 on the 360? What the fuck?
    Don't feed the trolls

    Otherwise there is EA Access, which is a steal unless you have played most of the games.

    That's very true, EA Access is consistent good value.

    for anyone like me, who never bought Star Wars Battlefront yet...

    if you're thinking of buying it on this sale, I found a physical copy of the Ultimate Edition on www.bestbuy.com for $19.99 which is cheaper than the sale on MS

    this is mainly for North America... if you're elsewhere, shop around first!

    Why is it cheaper to buy The Evil Within and its DLC separately than it is to buy the bundle?
    Same reason it's cheaper to get episode 1 of Telltale's Batman free and buy the pass for the rest than it is to buy the complete set. Which is to say - extra money from people not paying attention I guess?

    Battlefront is also going into the EA Access Vault soon, so if you have Access it'll be included in your subscription.
    Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

    The Evil Within XBOX ONE = US$6.60.
