    Well what can they do at this point really? The 360 is no longer getting new games.

    Still tonnes of content that rarely ever see sales especially DLC and arcade games.

    Looking at this these games don't have their DLC included in this sale RE 6, RE Raccoon City, Sniper Ghost Warrior 2, Dead Space 1, Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3.

    That alone is a lot of content that rarely if ever sees sales which would already make this a much better sale. Also GTA V is on sale like every week at this point.
    Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon, Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath!

    Is the XBox website messing up for anyone else or is it just me? It keeps failing to log me in over and over without anything actually showing up (the address bar resets itself) and it eventually locks out.
    Same for me in Windows and Firefox. I tried deleting all my cookies related to the site which sometimes fixes these sort of problems but no luck. Now I've seen your post it means the problem must be at their end I guess.

    I'm gonna assume you don't follow these sales very closely or it would be obvious to you that they keep recycling the same small pool of games in these sales, while the majority of the vast Xbox back catalogue never gets a look in.

    Nah, I see all the sales each week. This seems to be the October Halloween sale. I admit I don't know what makes them put what on sale, but I have to assume they put a lot of the same things on sale because they keep selling?

    I don't know what else it could be, other than obvious stuff like license agreements running out, or companies that made certain games no longer even existing, E.G. like Midway.

    Looks like the 360 game links are working again.

    If it was license agreements running out, then those games wouldn't still be for sale digitally. So it isn't that.

    If the companies no longer exist, then how would the games still be for sale digitally either?

    I don't think you've put much thought into it tbh.

    No idea, but companies like Midway are gone, yet some of their games and DLC are still on the store. Why do you think they don't put so many games or their DLC on sale?

    Nm then, when I try to buy one of these 360 games, it just loops the pages over and over. Guess I'll have to do it on my 360 itself.

    FIFA 18 (Xbox 360) just came out less than a month ago and Just Dance 2018 (Xbox 360) comes out today. There are about half a dozen games coming out next year.

    I played Alice: Madness Returns on the PC about six years ago and it is a visually stunning game. Too many games seem to have dark pallettes and it's a welcome change to play a game with bright, vibrant colors.

    pretty decent sales this week, may pick up Michone for the GS since I already did it on the One...Sonic and Knuckles and Silent Hill
  • Posted on 24 October 17 at 17:47Permalink
    if only Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 were 75% off then I'd get them...still have to fully finish them on the One so until then I won't get them for 360 but definitely want to

    Shadows of the damned is an awesome and fun game. A pretty simple 1000Gs. Odd at times but a definite play for anyone who hasn't tried it.
