General info
  • You cannot currently buy any Xbox 360 content on xbox.com using your account balance, you can only use an active credit card or PayPal. To use your balance, you must make purchases on your console. Unfortunately, even "purchasing" free content through the web site like trials requires an alternative method of payment tied to your account, though adding an empty MasterCard / Visa gift card that is registered for online purchases will work. Xbox One games can be purchased on the web site with your account balance.
  • Some sales are intended for Gold subscribers only, as noted within each section.
    On Xbox One, Gold trials of any length work for sales and Games with Gold. You must be an active Gold subscriber (paid or trial) to play Games with Gold purchases.
  • On Xbox 360, you must have at least a 1 month Gold subscription for sales and Games with Gold. Neither 48 hour trials, 14 day trials nor free weekends qualify.

  • All known sales and information on sales should make their way into the OP. Major Nelson usually updates his blog with new sales information every Tuesday.
  • ALL OFFERS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE! No information within this thread can or should be construed as accurate (or still valid), therefore ...

Game Pass potential departure dates​

Last updated - 2024-06-22
What is this?
Game prices in the Xbox store have a UTC end date associated with them. These dates generally fall into 5 categories :
  1. The item is currently on sale. These are usually the weekly sale items that end Tuesday mornings at 09:59:59 UTC.
  2. The item will go on sale, usually within 2-3 weeks. These are usually set to switch at 23:59:59 UTC, like the weekly sale on Monday evenings. Some of the major annual sales (Spring, Summer, Black Friday, Holiday) start on Thursday evening UTC, and some times appear to be random.
  3. The item is on Game Pass and is not currently or going to be on sale in the next few weeks. Third party games generally cluster around 09:59:59 UTC on the 1st and 16th of each month. Currently, at least one game is associated with every 1st and 16th through January 2025. The dates then spread out, ending with Human Fall Flat on July 1, 2028.
  4. First party and EA Play titles are farther out, starting in 2049, with many in 2799 and 9998.
  5. No date - some items do not have a price and so don't have a date. If the item is part of a bundle that has a price, the date from the bundle is used.
The list below uses the dates associated with games on Game Pass and EA Play. Time stamps in red are the regular Game Pass departure times and titles in red are confirmed to be leaving, either from Microsoft's regular news postings or by devs / publishers. Items available through Game Pass Core, currently on sale or not available for purchase are also color coded.

The date associated with a Game Pass game is not a guarantee it will leave on that date, but since March 2023 when the price data started getting analyzed, every game that's left Game Pass had been flagged as leaving on that date. It's given a number of people an extra heads up on the generally 2 week notice Microsoft provides.

If you have any questions about the list, please ask in the thread.

Ended up skipping on stranger things even though I've had my eye on it. Would kick myself if another game in the backlog went on gamepass and with it on PC gamepass I feel like it has a high chance.

Picked up arise and gang beasts for higher than I'd normally pay but the 4k points made it better.

 
I’ve been searching for a kid friendly game with split screen & co-op and Crayola Scoot seems to be that game. Reminds me of Splatoon mixed with Tony Hawk/Jet Set Radio and De Blob but way simpler. For $6 I’ll bite, hopefully it keeps the kiddos busy for a couple days.
 
A friend of mine downloaded Control yesterday and is having issues with it on his XBox X. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Well, Control finished downloading and I began playing it on my Xbox One X, and I believe I have hit a bug. As I wander around, a glowing x will appear to draw my attention to something I can interact with. The problem is, even though I get as close to the object with the x as I can, pressing the X button on the controller has no effect.

Thanks for the suggestion I’ll check that out too.
 
Don't the Bing hot deals usually change around the 15th?  Lots of good sales but I'll wait and see if they do the funny money again.  

Going to get 

A Hat in Time

Contra Rogue Corps ( I know it got bad reviews, but I'm a completionist)

Blazing Chrome (supposed to be a good Contra clone)

Metaloid (looks like a fun Mega Man clone)

we might be headed toward a dry patch

First sale in a long while that I've picked up some games.

Used some stored up bing point and cashed in to buy these.
 

Toejam and Earl Back in the Groove

I ended up not buying anything, I thought about the Kingdom Hearts games but I think I find the idea of Kingdom Hearts is more appealing to me then the actual games. Like telltale games, when I actually go to play them, it makes me want to take a nap.

Nice to see it is no longer available to tempt me. I too had this one on my mind. I started playing 1.5 on PS3 a few months ago but did not get far. I saw PS4 has a package with all three so if a similar deal comes to XB1 I will likely grab them. I want to give them an honest go but realistically I into other games at the moment and looking at least 4-6 weeks out to playing them. Just no urgency right now and plenty of backlog.

playing that first kingdom hearts on ps2 all those years ago is still one of my favorite single player gaming experiences

 
Well, my first purchase from the stimulus money arrived today. Amazon still has the 36 inch Blackstone grills on sale for almost 100 bucks off! (Model 1554)

Pretty nostalgic for me as well, and my kids enjoy seeing the Disney characters. The two collections on sale last week were no-brainers, but the story does get pretty convoluted lol
 
Got my FF7 Deluxe today.
And the steelbook was of course, significantly dented/dinged.
I hate how they cheap out on shipping these things in bubble mailers rather than boxes when they're $80 items.

They can't replace it yet because they're out of stock but they were able to give me the timeframe for a restock. Fingers crossed.
 
I want to like this, I have hope. But with everything The Coalition has done to fuck up Gears 5, I have extremely little faith. Even with Operation 3 their newest update, can't bring me back. Damage has been done.

Finally found TP out in the wild which I haven't seen since February. Things are turning round for the better it seems here in Southern CA
It's beyond criminal how The Coalition has desecrated this franchise. I've sunk tens of thousands of hours into Gears 3 alone but I can't even look at Gears 5 anymore.

 
Got my FF7 Deluxe today.
And the steelbook was of course, significantly dented/dinged.
I hate how they cheap out on shipping these things in bubble mailers rather than boxes when they're $80 items.

They can't replace it yet because they're out of stock but they were able to give me the timeframe for a restock. Fingers crossed.
Amazon combined my copy with a chair base in one box... I just knew my copy was going to be crushed being in a huge box with a 10lb box and no padding.
There was bubble wrap inside! I don’t think I’ve seen bubble wrap in months.
(Edit: it arrived unscathed, surprised me..)

I picked up Fearful Symmetry, because 50 cents.  Thought about buying some other stuff, but the reward promos end before the sales do.  My Mondays are always hell.

 
I decided to take the plunge for the reward offer and picked up

- Fearful Symmetry (cos it was cheaper than a coke)
- Bulletstorm (finished it on 360 had decent fun with it and having a 4k tv and hearing people talk about it sold it for me)
- Onrush (Again price was right and missed out when it was on gamepass)
- Dragon Age Deluxe and Mass Effect Deluxe bundle. (Yeah it's on Access but it's the deluxe with dlc and I am not seeing a lot of value out of access anymore...)
- Phoenix Wright trilogy (I played the first one on DS and had a lot of fun - looking forward to get achievements)
- Life is strange beyond the storm (it was my filler to get over the threshold of $55CAD)
 
You would think Xbox One controllers were toilet paper here. Gave up on the Elite 2, just starting trying to find any with rubberized grips and definitely not the shiny slick shells. Zero online searches in the city came up and when I grabbed groceries, it looked like launch day. No hard drives, controllers, nada. Holy cow...
 
Thanks, I gave up on the site as I kept getting weird glitches. Found a Gears 5 KAIT, which was my 2nd choice, so I'm happy(for now, I'm a CAG). Just shocked at the emptiness
Most electronics are made and shipped out of China. That’s why you see some ppl worrying about hyper inflation if manufacturing lines are shutdown for too long. I was glad I could get a copy of Animal Crossing and I don’t mind buying my Xbox games digitally so I think I’m good until things get moving again as far as gaming.
 
Lots of gaming stuff is slowly creeping up in price. New stock will slowly get depleted until manufacturing can ramp back up to normal. Used stock is being depleted since I don't think anywhere is taking trades right now. Certain older stuff is going up on average too. Wiis have started to go up in price as well as popular family games like Wii Sports. Probably similar to the demand for Ring Fit Adventure that's being compounded by the lack of available Switches.

Elite Controllers are a niche product due to their high price, so I don't think most individual stores kept a very many in stock normally, and I'd assume that extends to the warehouses.

All of this is amplified even more since almost everyone in every part of the world is stuck inside. Video games are the most obvious thing to get into that requires at least some external hardware to be acquired if you don't already have, compared to watching and listening, or reading, as far as entertainment goes.

 
I've been interested in the new terminator game but it seems they didn't make too many physical copies. It's nearly full price or more on ebay and I don't want to pay or wait for physical. Saw that it was on gamefly so figured I'd use a free trial to play it and maybe check out a second game. It didn't tell me until I had the trial that there's extremely low stock. Wonder if I'll get it delivered.

I haven't played any previous game but started Gears 5 last night for the Game Pass quest. Thinking about going back and playing from the beginning to get the story. What did they do to fuck up the franchise, is it the story or the MP or ?

 
Wonder if it's going to work out. When I click through it's still trying to charge the $9.99 even though the first screen says Free with Gold. I've seen that before so maybe will fix itself... I'm curious though since they seemed to have pulled the announcement of this one for OG Xbox Blinx the Timesweeper a couple days after the GWG announcement this month.

I Think it's just the fact it's so full of cosmetic microtransactions now, but as someone that plays horde here and there still and enjoyed the campaign...I'm totally fine with Gears still.

Some people don't like some of the newer story stuff, but the multiplayer is what has most players up in arms. Really since Gears 3 the games have made fairly polarizing choices with design decisions, and 4 and 5 have upset people with how they've supported the games. 5 has the F2P store design of modern games like Fortnite, but filled with mostly bad content and actual gameplay releasing being super spaced out.

Story wise you're fine. The campaigns of Gears have pretty much always been good, with complaints generally boiling down to either not innovating much or a bit too much emphasis on whatever new gimmick was introduced. You probably want to start with Gears 1 (the enhanced X1 remaster) and play in release order. If you're really impatient you can start with 4 as it's after a big time skip and focuses primarily on new characters, though there are still plenty of references and characters to the original trilogy (and to a lesser degree the black sheep that is Judgment).

If you like third-person shooters, Gears is pretty much king of the mountain in the genre.

yeah i've always hated Gears multiplayer, so to me Gears is a campaign run and horde with friends. Still fun to me.

Multiplayer.

I haven't touched Campaign, it's probably decent like it was in Gears 4, I just have no interest in whatever TC does with it. Horde and Escape are decent from the time I've dabbled with them. I am not a fan of the VS multiplayer at all and that's my bread and butter with the series. They took auto aim/aim assist way too far and entire game is just poorly designed with atrocious updates that compound the problems. After getting no enjoyment from the game in months, I realized that I was fighting Terminator characters, Halo characters and real world e-sport skins with Earth nation flags in a game that takes places on a fictional world with it's own history and concluded that I don't enjoy or repsect this series anymore.

The campaign in Gears was very off-putting. Making 2/3 of the game open world made me feel like I was missing out on so much of the story if I didnt scour every nook & cranny of the game world. Felt like a cheap way to extend the game and just didnt feel like Gears. Plus, the major part of the story that happened just before the end. I did NOT like that. Turning Gears into an rpg lite game, wtf.

Multiplayer, some of their decisions with Horde were okay imo. I've never been a fan of Horde. Escape is a cool addition. And as others have stated, the versus multiplayer part they've had very questionable design choices. Some of the ranking systems the coalition have in place is highly questionable, very imbalanced.

Now the multiplayer progression system/earning cosmetics, is so fuck ed it isn't funny. It has gone "fortnite" with all the emotes, but unlocking stuff is just not fulfilling. The character/weapon skins you earn by grinding dozens of hours are blah and if you want decent to cool looking skins, pony up the cash. I would rather have the random lootboxes in Gears 4. That's how bad Gears 5 is. I had so many "cool" skins in G4 from just playing normally, but G5 just jumps the microtransaction pillaging to the 11th degree. I really wonder which new studio that had nothing to do with the original franchises(Gears & Halo) have handled it worse. It's that bad IMO

Not too much in this sale for me. Hoping the hot deal is MS monies for 4k bing points vs the normal 4,640

In contrast, I haven't played multiplayer much at all beyond horde in any of the games. But Gears 5 campaign is by far my favorite from the franchise. There are some big open levels with lots of optional hidden areas to explore. It's a good blend of action and exploration, but gives you the freedom to explore little or as much as you'd like. Even better if you do 2-3 player co-op.

 
Used my free month of GWG last night to pick up Fable and was able to get Toybox Turbos this morning. Upgraded to Castle Crashers Remastered for $3 too.

I am not seeing a lot that interest me on the sale right now, what am I missing?

I saw a bit of chatter about TJ&E; I love 90s stuff but I am not familiar with the series other than the name. Is it worth it if I have no nostalgia for it?

 
I've had my eye on Gato Roboto for awhile and almost bought it on Switch. It's a tribute to Game Boy games and has a Metroid II vibe, only you are a cat in a robot suit. Apparently it's pretty short but quite charming, aka the perfect game for Game Pass.

 
Just got toybox turbos free, wonder if it is a mistake and blinx will go free too.
Just had a look at the current end date for gamepass Microsoft rewards hot deal and it says it ends 1st May.
 
The first PSO2 Game Pass Ultimate pack expires tomorrow on the 16th. There are rumors that we might get a similar one on the 17th with a lot of good stuff. That's hopefully true, the second month's one, that is valid until August for some reason, is disappointing.
