The Fallout 4 season pass DOES NOT include the base game in the 25$ price. It didn't show up on Xbox.com before I bought it and it's not on my Xbone as I'm installing the DLC.
Yeah it’s been a thing with TA for some stupid reason. Anytime fallout 4 season pass goes on sale they always put that the game is included when its obviously not. I’d ask for a refund from Xbox support and then get the GOTY edition if you were still wanting it.

Does Xbox say it includes the game? Or is it just a TA error? If the latter, I can't imagine getting a refund for bad info from a third party.

Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune are super easy games and not that bad for $20, although I got the physical version for $15 on Amazon during black friday and have seen it for $20-25 a couple times after.

Well, you don't have to actually tell them that. Just say you made a mistake and you thought the game was included. They can see that you don't have the game and, therefore, that you haven't been able to play any DLC. I think it's worth a try.

Oh certainly worth a try, I just meant that I can't think any legitimate reason you could give that you might actually get a refund for, so if asked for a reason you might as well go with the truth.

Hell, half of Xbox Support seems to think we're part of Microsoft and able to fix achievements so maybe they will let you use the article as a reason!

I think they allow one refund per year. I bought Wolfenstein 2 at launch but then it went on sale in like 2weeks so I asked for a refund to then buy the deluxe version for $45. The 1st guy said they couldn’t give a refund but the 2nd guy was willing to do it right away. So just saying you didn’t realize the season pass didn’t include the game should be good enough but it may take a few reps as some don’t ever want to give a refund.

Not really, Infinite warfare Legacy Pro edition is half that price on disc new. I also find it quite amusing how you get less discount on the dearer bundles, yet again the gaming industry's digital pricing strategy proves the opposite of the norm is viable.

If anyone is looking for some cool indie games, check out Skylar & Plux, and Kona.

Skylar & Plux is a pretty straight forward 3D platformer. The character is heavy and character movement is not really good, but the game is fun and has some pretty cool ideas. Well worth the 4.5 bucks they are asking for in this sale.

Kona is basically everything Firewatch should have been. A better story, enough exploration and gameplay mechanics that go deeper than simply pushing a stick forward for two hours.

Still nothing yet for me. Pretty meh overall. Come on, Snake Pass.
Dude, of course so missed the ONE deal I wanted... WOF and Jeopardy... Snake Pass is worth the normal price, I enjoy led that SOO much and a proud completion for sure!! I’m waiting for a sale on it as well to gift to a friend. I saw the sale this morning for the game shows but they were back to regular price when I clicked it... damn my luck!!

I was expecting a bargain for Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels (yes, I bought Blizzard Mountain before it was clear the Extension Pass included Hot Wheels & Blizzard Mountain)...

It's $10 (50% off) right now, I don't expect to see it cheaper than that for some time.

BF was also GWG so most people will have it already.

Is Syndicate's SP still on sale? I purchased it a few days ago.
This post may be sarcastic.

Yes it is still on sale, actually forgot that Black Flag was GWG, I bought it before that though for 79p from CDKeys.

Exactly what I did the other day. Not really a great deal as there are all heavily discounted anyway.

So, can we assume the achievement in Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition that's unobtainable will remain that way?
