All of the above mentioned Stars Wars items are only available for people with EA Access, otherwise they're full price. At least according to what I've found on Xbox.com.

Agreed. Whether the developers are lazy or simply unwilling, the achievements are a feature of an xbox game and as a developer they need to work. If they don't take pride in producing a complete product (or immediately work on patches to fix them) they never see my money. Ever.

Was checking the Storeparser website in the early hours of this morning on my iPad, and they were showing the Star Wars Battlefront season pass for £12, the first 3 dlcs for £6 each, and the ultimate upgrade pack for £8. Went on the Xbox One app, searched for the season pass, and right enough was showing at £12, so I bought it, and I don't have EA Access. Even have an email confirming the purchase for £12. Somebody must have made a cock up with pricing. dance

Wish I could get JUST the Mortal Kombat DLC on sale. That's what I get for buying digital on day one.

The price increase and the EA Access requirement was added after the sale started. They made a mistake and this isn't the first time. It pays to jump on the really good deals quick, as they can be too good to be true. Of course if it is free by mistake they will revoke your license, but I haven't heard of anyone being refunded and their license revoked from a pricing mistake.

Don't they do a "12 Days of Countdown" thing? That would lead itself to next Tuesday by chance anyway.

I've updated the article to reflect the fact it's now for EA Access members only and the change in pricing. Silly dingbats.

It might be a while, so please don't hold your breath, as it was on sale back in September UPDATED: XBL Sale Roundup: September 13th, 2016

Do season passes this gen ever go on sale more than once? It sucks that it's rare that they go on sale at all, let alone again...

It's a very rare thing these days and for some games has never happened (Watch_Dogs). Not just Season Passes, but DLC on its own too. Bundles and games are mostly what we get.

Not often, it because of the stupid overpriced deluxe digital version which include the season pass go on sale a fair bit which is a kick in the teeth for people like me who prefer retail if its available. No way I'm paying £70 or more for a game n season pass on digital. Most season passes suck

Also, glad I snagged the BF season pass when I did then
Well done. I let people on my friend feed and my blog followers know about this 17 hours ago.
I found it on storeparser, but I'm going to add you now for future reference :)

Nothing for me this week. I have this TMNT game and it was awful the least time I've played. Must give it another shot.

That's right. And I add they should be bashed because some people don't seem to like to work if they're not being exposed.

Not related but It's funny how konami swear the achievements in DDR Universe 3 can be obtained legit. u_u'

Welcome to TA, where stats are made up and some achievements do not matter.

For the last 3 years it's been a Tuesday, so if we are going to have a countdown sale this year, it will start Tuesday 20th December 2016.
