I just hope that the percent off is reasonable for a sale. I noticed that Microsoft left off how much the discounts are going to be in that teaser.

I laugh when they advertise up to 50%- 75% off. Meaning that they could discount most things at 5-10%, and the highest discount is somewhere in the 50-75% range.

There are so many indie games for 10/15 dollars that they could put on sale for 5. And don't even get me started on the amount of Xbox live arcade games they could put on. Well, looking forward to NBA*rolls eyes*

All I need is the deluxe edition of Elite:Dangerous to go half off or more... I can't afford anything less than half off. Fingers crossed.

I agree, that's the only way I'd play it since it doesn't have achievements.
But 7.50-$10 is a solid price
Hi, I'm mediocre and the internet triggers me.

Hoping for Indie games, single DLCs and season passes.
Retail games are pretty much always cheaper than the digital stuff, so that doesn't interest me.

I just want a lot of ID@Xbox games made available in Australia so I don't have to faff about buying a digital gift card and go through the process of reigon changing just to play them

GotY/Definitive games for $15 or under is my preference. Any games released in the back half of this year under $30 will also catch my eye.

But the only for-sure, I'm buying would be Michonne or Minecraft:SM at least half off. TellTale is a fun break for me between pew-pew

Titanfall 2 is my #1 priority, after that I'm looking to pick up Minecraft Story Mode, The Walking Dead Season 2, Manual Samuel. I'm also considering Doom and Forza Horizon 3, but I doubt I'll have the money for all of that.

It is unfortunate that a lot of indie devs can't afford to make their game available I every region.

We're all mad here...

To be fair these sales have always been decent at Christmas. I've always got at least one or two good deals, Remember getting Kings Quest super cheap last year, and tales from the borderlands pass just after the 1st episode came out so maybe hold off on getting the new Walking dead game incase it's on sale .

Like others I've my eye on some of the more expensive ID@Xbox titles so hope they get a good discount.

i would just rent Titanfall 2, its basically all single player achievements which with the exception of the hard run and the gauntlet run are quite easy. the story is beaten in probably 6-7 hours. i paid 29USD for mine and i feel ripped off personally, i have actually logged more hours in the last 2 weeks for Titanfall 1 then Titanfall 2.

I know they've been on sale numerous times... but, I want the Mass Effect Trilogy DLCs to be on sale! I simply didn't have the money lying around when they were last on sale!
