That feel when I have most of these): I need to stop buying games day one and wait for the Holiday sales lol. This and the Black Friday sale were super week for me.

Hoping for Goat Simulator, Bulletstorm and Toy Soldiers: Cold War dlc sale. Maybe some season passes. Not really going to buy any games since I have most I want.

Watch it consist of rehashes of all previous sales.

I swear they count various editions of a game as a different game e.g. Ultimate, Special and Normal of X game is not three different games.
No longer waiting for sigs to stop deleting.

You're probably not wrong! Also, for this portion: "350 daily and weekly deals" it didn't specify "games," so the movies and TV shows may also be included in this number.

Movies & TV Shows are most likey included - We've seen them on sale along with games before. I'm guessing anything purchasable will be part of it, down to the avatar items laugh

I meant in the number cited of things that were advertised to be on sale. They're already definitely confirmed to be on sale. So it'll be like 200 games and 150 movies and TV shows, as opposed to 350 games, which is what most people on this site (including myself) would prefer smile

Edit: Just saw your Edit... if they include Avatar items, that's just cruel! laugh Although I'm totally okay with some of those old icon packs for the 360 going on sale. Some of those were awesome!

It always make me laugh when Microsoft come out and say everything minium 20% off or whatever number. But that is always the original digital price that never changes and is 90% of the time waaaay more expensive than a retail version.
Personally want a fuck load of x1 indie games on sale cos there is alot I want but most are a bit steep in price to me
