Catherine for $3?? That's a great deal considering it's on the higher end of used retail.

A legend or something to explain what all the different symbols mean on this page would be nice.
Took me a while - but i think its game, collection, currency, addons
Still no idea about the different in cups;
Black ops 3 - 2 cups then 5 cups? What?

Is there any way you could indicate the 360 games that are backwards compatible? Thanks for the list!

Got Killer is dead.

Already got catherine years ago, but it's a must for $3. Everyone should buy it.

Not a huge fan of this layout, no easy way to check region pricing or whether the title is BC.

It still feels like it was only yesterday that I bought it for $80 brand new laugh
I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

I'm also not really a fan, sorry. I went from here to the sales page to check UK pricing but the sales page isn't complete currently. Means I have to wait or check Major Nelson..

I don't really want to click on each game individually to find out what my regional price is..

Presenting those sales this way is so much clearer, thanks for the upgrade!

But too bad only USdollars are shown for the prices. I know everyone would like to see their own currency and we can satisfy everybody, but I think it's either the most famous currencies like TA used to do, or none.

I also know that it's a lot of work to put every region price for every deal, but we have to put a price, we can't talk about sales without announcing the prices. That's a hard decision to make.

But first, you can maybe put the general link to Microsoft's store instead of the US one. I don't remember what the general URL looks like since the coming of the new marketplace, but instead of putting the link with 'fr-fr' in it for France or 'en-us' for the US, there was a neutral URL that would automatically redirects to the user region. So everybody would click on the same link but get the page in their own currency.

Thanks.

Also not a fan for the same reasons posted by tackytics and matdan.
Another thing, the achievement symbols for the packs with DLC don't really add anything. You can't check which achievement symbol stands for what and as the bundle includes everything, why not show every achievement of all the contents instead of separated by DLC pack.

I cringe when I think of some of the games, like Risen, that I pre-ordered years ago at premium price that still languish in my backlog. redface

Still no idea about the different in cups;
Black ops 3 - 2 cups then 5 cups? What?
The cups/ trophies show the base game and expansions/ DLC, although it doesn't really explain the difference between the Gold and Deluxe editions.

Tool tips would make clarifying the symbols much easier.

My preference was using the Xbox sales chart under Main Menu > Xbox Sales, as this showed GS, TA, prices in my currency and the proper links to my regional (Canadian) store.

It looks like the first cup is main game achievements, other cups are for DLC's. No cup is DLC without achievements.

Echoing the request for the other prices, as previous posts have had.

Plus indications of BC and unobtainable needs to come back :)

Is the Xbox Sales Hub broken? Not seeing any of these reflected on that page

I know. It's my kind of game. I've got all three Risen games but just haven't found the time to pull them out of my backlog.

Seeing just US prices is a disappointment, I preferred the old layout
