Hello,

On the new Latest Sales page it is showing me some games that do not appear to be on sale.

Notably:- Dead Island 80% off @ £1.79 and Killer Is Dead 80% off @ £2.99

When I click the Buy Now button for my region (united kingdom) on each game it takes me to the Xbox Game page but there is no sale on, both are full price.

Regards
Windy

When you attempt to actually purchase the game (the final step before payment), does the price update to reflect the sales price? Or is it staying fully priced through the whole process? I'm located in NA, and those sales are accurately reflected for me.

Definitely looks like full price to me, the Store price is £11.99 and the Confirm Purchase price is £11.99.

Seems to still be an issue. Many things listed that aren't actually on sale, and a couple games that are listed multiple times.

Still show old sales (Goat Simulator DLC) which make the Latest sales page not usable.
You'll never play alone.

Goat Simulator is broken on Xbox's end, everything else should be correct though.

We'll set up a fix for GS now.

Currently, if you have the sales in alphabetical order, there are literally only 2 things on the first page that are actually on sale. It's rather excessive. Currently about 8 pages in Latest Sales when there should only be like 2.

Looks like an issue with sales that don't have an ending date not being removed...ever. Much of this stuff WAS on sale at one point, those sales ended, they stayed in the list. Currently seeing 12 pages.

Also seems to be an issue with things that have price-drops. In the same regard, though, it's likely because they don't have end dates. Notably, the Halo Wars DLC was price dropped when the Definitive Edition came out. Also, all that Kung Fu Panda DLC that takes up about a page.

There are also many bundles marked as on sale, even though they've always been their current price. I'm willing to give a little leeway here since Microsoft.com DOES say they are on sale (IE 'Save X' is listed), but it could be something to look at.

Indeedily. The first batch are (mainly) price drops. The second batch are bundles that (at least according to the Microsoft store) ARE on sale, but have never been full price, so not sure what you'd want to do with them. The 'save X' on the bundle pages might just be referring to how much you save as opposed to buying the items individually.

I had most of these still in the report, but I'll add the ones I missed. It looks like they might be changing slightly on a daily basis.

Going to assume

"Create routine to remove long running Xbox 360 sales and convert them into the standard price"

is in reference to this page?

It is, yes. Although the above sales that we have listed are still documented as an active bug for investigation.
