    Chances are that in the next few months the DLC will be delisted, usually occurs after the DLC has gone on sale.

    This has been the case for all previous Forza games, and I don't see this changing anytime soon.

    Pricing for The star wars DLC for pinball FX2 seems to be incorrect. 15$ for the bundle, but if you buy them individually its $11. Also, there's no way to buy a "bundle" on the pinball FX 2 menu. The packs/tables are listed individually.
    I found the Xbone Pinball FX2 Star Wars Season 1 Bundle in the Marketplace for $15.
    Individually they were (total $19):
    Force Awakens $2.50
    Rebels $1.50
    Heroes $5
    Balance $5
    Full $5
    So the Bundle was still a better deal for the 13 tables.

    Forza 5 should be played as soon as possible really.

    But remember it is a bit different game because of the rush for the Xbox One release. There's no licensed music I guess. And IMO the music is the worst regarding extortion in renewing of licenses.

    The pricing...
    The LEGO Star Wars TFA. Dollar to SEK = 230. Euro to SEK = 408. MS listed price in SEK 449.
    TIL I'll never buy a game again until there's some kind of balance between the regions.

    Forza 2 Storm Island for $5? Sure why not.

    I guess I am confused on this. Sunset Overdrive DLC has 2 with achievements at $9.99 each. At 90% off they should be $1 each. Why does it list price at $9.99 for both of these?

    Pricing error on the MS end, base price for them is currently $99.

    $50 for the Forza 6 bundle seems like a fair price.

    I'm still grinding away for the One for the History Books achievement.

    Thanks for the info. I think my issue is that I purchased at least one of these bundles before.
    So for me purchasing the tables individually comes up as $11.

    Sunset Overdrive looks like a pricing error rather than a sale. There's no mention of it being in the deals on Xbox.com or MajorNelson. Hopefully the season pass will go on sale since I've been waiting for it for a year
    I'll be really pissed off if this is an error. I've been waiting for this DLC to go on sale for ages.
    Just spent a few minutes chatting to xbox support and they said there is a known error with some pricing at the moment. They thought that any products showing incorrect prices were supposed to be on sale, but couldn't confirm that the Sunset Overdrive DLC, or anything else, was definitely on sale. They suggested checking again in a few to 24 hours so I guess we'll have to wait and see.
    Guys so what do I do, I bought the Sunset Overdrive dlc and it contains only o e mission instead of two as states by trueachievement. Secondly the price isn't a discounted price after all. Damn!! Anything I can do?
    Research and Games :)

    You can try requesting a refund at http://support.xbox.com/contact-us but they may not let you. Choose Billing, then Other and you'll get the available contact methods. They've been good to me in the past

    Also, be sure to read the description really closely in the Store before you buy anything. TA does make mistakes with product listings, but it should be correct when you try to purchase it from Xbox.com. If it's not, you should be able to get a refund based on that

    Prototype for 15 bucks, not bad. Forza sale looks enticing.

    Same, I hope they fix it. Though I wonder if it was meant to be on sale at all.

    I'd try politely requesting a refund due to the pricing error first. It is after all, MS's mistake that the item was listed as having a price reduction. In the UK at least, it's illegal to show a product as on sale based on an original higher price it was never sold at. Not sure if this law exists where you live, but you could always mention it if they don't seem willing to give a refund.

    Yes if you don't want it request a refund. Your case will be stronger if you've played it for less than 2 hours but regardless you can put a case forward saying you didn't know it was a pricing error and are uncomfortable paying that price for it.

    Also they said check again in 24 hours when the sale went up and it's still there so don't pin your hopes on it being discounted properly - it's likely to be an error until next Tuesday when the sales change again..
