Apart from Beyond Eyes are there any other quick 1000's?
Little acre, the bunker, coffin dodgers and in between.

So when they say spotlight sale they mean between the hours of midnight and 6 am ! The crafty buggers !
Too many Irons in the fire !

It's weird to see everyone get so excited over the price error of the resi evil collection for $20. When you think about it this bundle contains 7 old games (one of which is a remake (of a remake) of a 20 year old game), so is $20 really a steal at this price?
It is when they're GOOD games. (Ok, some of these titles, not so much...)

Good games are good games regardless of how old they are.

All games on sale are 'old' games. With this you're getting 7 for less than half the price of a new one. Your logic is like saying any 'old' movie released on Blu Ray remastered simply 'isn't worth it' because the movie itself is old... 0o

Not everyone is a fashion gamer.

I've been told by Xbox Support that if the price doesn't appear as £16 ($20) on my system before the sale is over I will be 'guaranteed' an opportunity to buy it for £16 by contacting Xbox Support once again - so I suggest anyone who's missed it should contact Xbox Support ASAP and make the same request I did.

I just tried this and I was told I cannot get this price bc the game is no longer on sale. I'm at work and didn't have time to argue but I'll try again after I get home. I hope some other people have better luck.

I've just spoken to their Support Team - basically got told the deal has currently been removed, he kept trying to dodge my questions about the RE Super Bundle. Said to keep an eye on Major Nelson's website for updated sales and deals. Didn't really get anywhere despite me asking if it's going to go back on sale...

1. The prices in the table don't show for SOME items. Why?
2. The big Resident bundle is cheaper the 3-game bundle, so must be an error price?
3. Was ODST DLC for Master Chief Collection EVER on sale? Been waiting forever and never saw it on sale ONCE.



Been trying to use my Xbox Rewards credit (in conjunction with a credit card), but xbox.com gives an error: "Region Mismatch" (credit card is not US-issued, probably because of that). Anyone knows a way to solve this? Using VPN won't help?
1. They aren't on sale in your region (they're Europe only)
2. It looks like it was. It was raised with no explanation, but it looks like it's full price in the store, so no one's really sure what happened. The Note in the article explains it more
3. No, I don't think it has been. Xbox One DLC sales have been rare.
Thanks for the reply!

How would this even work?

Whenever I talk to them, all I think is that "dodging questions" is all they're trained to do.

Okay, I'm going to sleep now. I swear, if I wake up tomorrow and see that the Resident Evil bundle went on the super sale again I'm going to throw a fit.

Probably going to get that RE super bundle. Too bad the first Revelations is not included or at least on sale.

Sort of hard to be included in bundle when it is not released yet.

Snagged Slender: The Arrival and Peanuts. I wish I had enough non-food money for the Resident Evil bundle
And there was a huge whale and it was all like MWAAAAA which made it super scary!

I would imagine they simply add that bundle to my account's purchased list and charge me the £16. They've done the reverse for me before when they put Metro 2033 on sale but made it look like it was the entire Metro Redux bundle and I bought it by mistake. Contacted them via Chat and they just refunded my money and removed the game from my account. So they clearly have the ability to manipulate our purchased games.

I have the conversation saved where they guaranteed me this so if they try and challenge it I'll just show them.

I would like to know if you actually got it or if this ended up in tears?
