Forum for discussing where to pick up cheap deals

Xbox One Sale Roundup: January 16th, 2018

    I’ll probably pick up Firewatch & Tacoma. Both of those I’ve heard are good games and great completions. I bought Rememoried just this weekend, but it seems worth the $15 it cost me.

    A few to consider, just got to weigh up the discount rate of only 50% against the urgency...will a lot of them be cheaper in future I wonder, because I have no immediate need for any of them.

    I just spent waaaaaaay too much. Again.

    Also, the $9 that Valley of the Yetis is listed for is actually the Season pass, and that DLC alone is $6

    Want Inside, Firewatch, Limbo and Typoman.
    Gonna resist Inside, Firewatch, Limbo and Typoman until they are all <$5.
    It'll happen by next year.

    For anyone in the UK interested in Pillars of Eternity Complete Edition, it's £19.99 on Amazon, which is cheaper than the digital cost of the game from any region's online xbox store.

    Far Cry Primal is also £10 on UK Amazon, cheaper than the price here.

    Planet of the Eyes: 1-2 hours

    If you go to the Xbox Sales Hub on the main page you can see a list of all the games on sales and their completion times:

    Any opinions on Tacoma? I thought it looked at least somewhat interesting but read its also very short. Half off at least gets my attention.
    It was enjoyable. Worth it at that price.

    This is probably the best weekly sale I've ever seen. Luckily three are still a couple I don't already have.

    Make absolutely sure to get:

    Edith Finch
    Firewatch
    Sexy Brutale
    Limbo... shame on you if you don't have it already
    The Long Dark
    Tacoma is very good but short

    Staring at Pillars of the Earth right now...

    Bought everything under $10.
    The real question is will I ever play any of it. laugh
    I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

    Broken Age is a steal at that price. If you like adventure games or point-and-clicks. Buy it.

    Agreed! Usually the sales are junk, but this was surprising to see with sales from older games finally.
    Yeah Buddy!!!

    Anyone with good or bad feedback on FC Primal? I've been waiting for that one to be better priced for sometime now. Thanks in advance.

    So many good games for such little mullah. I'm really tempted to pick up a few but I have this niggling feeling that as soon as I do they will be added to the game pass. On the other hand if I don't buy them and they don't get added then I'm missing out on some great deals...

    Does anyone have a crystal ball or a time machine they could lend me?
    It's more than just a game, it's a passion.
