Welcome to the Xbox Deals and Discussion thread.

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 ...
  • Always verify Xbox Live Marketplace prices before your purchase!
  • Spend wisely, have fun, and enjoy!

Game Pass potential departure dates​

Last updated - 2024-07-13
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.

Hellblade 2 reviews varying quite wildly. 5s to 9s. Sounds like the ultimate cinematic walking simulator.
I feel like a lot of the places are saying it's pretty much just the first game but a little better. Which is what I personally expected. I didn't expect the Last of Us or God of War like it seems some thought this would morph into.
 
Aerial was a weird choice because it has kind of wonky proportions, but Witch From Mercury was their most popular show in years and it was the most recent so I get why they picked it. Zaku is generally too bulky to mesh well as a human model replacement.

I'm kind of shocked CoD having such a boring art direction for 20 years has decided to go all in on anime skins now, but they finally realized how much money can be made I guess. I hope Gundam makes it to other games more often now. I could see mecha armor in Destiny or the Gundams and pilots in Fortnite at least looking good.
Their art direction I feel is best suited for 50 different Punisher skins, but not really anything anime related. Like really any of the massive online shooters that has made animated character skins work is Fortnite (and I guess maybe any of those mobile TenCent games, but I'm not going to look), everyone else just looks like a half-assed cosplay.

And sidenote, but tried buying an Argentina Gameflip code and redeeming it on my Surfshark VPN and it also gives me the "my account isn't from this region so can't redeem" message. Disappointing, but I'm not exactly lacking in games so I'm just going to cry for a few nights in my bed instead of months like I originally planned.

correct, yeah. Never the Series X - I did that when I still owned a Series S - but once I had the network details in there, adding a new network was just that - adding another to the pile. I was still able to connect to my network without fuss when I returned home. It was getting the network added in the first place to the Series S and Series X that was a pain, because I don't broadcast my SSID.

Parents-in-law did, so connecting to theirs was no hassle and it still remembered mine when I got home again.
Well I've googled it and it seems a lot of people are in the same situation as me. Microsoft just hasn't added the feature for whatever reason. Plenty of people with a series s are stating on Reddit that the system doesn't remember any Wi-Fi networks /passwords so no idea how you got lucky.

The lack of responses to my post is proof I guess that most people don't give a crap about it and don't take their series s or x console over to friends houses or whatever and it just stays in one location. It's just so odd that Sony and Nintendo have the feature in there but Microsoft refuses.

I haven't had that specific issue as my Series X stays in my bonus room exclusively. But it always has issues connecting to my wifi. My One S would always connect instantly both my Series X and S take a while to pick up the wifi for some reason. Very Frustrating
 
Loving Hellblade 2 so far. If you didn’t like it first one, this isn’t going to change your mind. The graphics, as expected, are next level and it’s blown me away that the sound is even more amazing than the original. Gameplay is similar, which isn’t a bad thing for me. Just won’t be for everyone like the first game. It’s living up to expectations for me though!
 
I'm like 180 hours into Fallout 76. A friend started playing and that game is such a time sink. Do a few missions and events and it's 10:30pm. Do one more and it's after midnight.

I've got a growing list of games to play next.
 
So IGN just bought a bunch of other media sites. Eurogamer, vgc, games industry.biz and more. I expect all the journos yelling about consolidation being bad when covering the Activ- Blizz acquisition to be mysteriously silent this week. Joking aside I don't think this is a good thing for the gaming coverage industry.
Maaaaan, IGN fucking sucks. Not much else to add, but they kinda do feel like them and Kotaku brought forth the whole clickbait headlines with little to do (or absolutely nothing) with gaming. With that said, John Linneman of Digital Foundry whom I guess is under Eurogamer's umbrella said that it's business as usual on their side, which I hope stays the case.

From the look of things, those other outlets were all already under a single parent company. So it's not the same as them buying up different sites.

These site closing or mergers shouldn’t be a surprise. I remember when it was happening Computer Gaming World, Joystiq and several other gaming media were shuttered or bought back in the 2000s. I’m surprised Kotaku, The Gamer and Polygon haven’t been shut down not only because they are the worst clickbait sites in gaming but their parent companies aren’t doing well either. Since ad revenue started drying up last year, these things were inevitable.

One recent Festival of the Lost had mecha armor. The suits aren't bad, but I see potential for more sets if they get creative (NARRATOR: they won't).

Are you doing your score chores to complete the season pass stuff as well? Or are you just trying to play the storylines and have fun?

I started a few years ago and I still login most days whenever a new season is active, but it is silly that I let my backlog stagnate while I play the same things over and over. I don't even use most of the stuff I unlock through the seasons is the worst part lol.

I Think only reason Kotaku is alive is just because of Twitter where they just know the right buttons to push where they start trending every few months to get stupid people too outraged that they don't know any better and should just disengage, but they can't help it. I'm pretty confident they're keeping the lights on until the end of the year at least just from all the trash takes and flame fanning they can get from that new Assassin's Creed game coming this year.

Sadly, most of my gaming news comes from reading this forum and what I see scrolling reddit. A lot of the sites I used to visit started covering movies/tv shows/nerd shit more than just games. The focus shifted and maybe that's what drives engagement for them but lost me as a reader.
 
Only ones I still like are Pure Xbox, Nintendo Life & Push Square. They’re like the gaming magazines of my childhood. Just reviews, previews, guides and news and no social commentary. I cut out a lot of gaming websites after the unprecedented Hogwarts Legacy boycott so many sites decided to embark on. Don’t care about the game or Harry Potter or JK Rowling at all, but if you are literally going so far as to pretend one of the best-selling games of the year doesn’t exist, all just to appease online activists, well then I’m not interested in your content at all.

Gaming journalism is a misnomer anyway. These sites and writers are basically the PR & marketing wings of the game industry. That’s what the other side doesn’t get when they whine about “ethics in game journalism.” There’s literally no such thing. And that’s ok. It’s not that serious, it’s gaming. Just write about games and leave out the clickbait and ragebait.

Im at 102 on the score board. I don't know if I'll hit 150 before the season is over, but I'll keep at the challenges.

Got my iam8bit Sea of Stars physical copy in for Xbox today. Looks like the Tomb Raider remasters skipped Xbox for the normal deluxe edtion, but you can still feed LRG. I am half annoyed with them and half happy that they are at least doing some Xbox releases recently.

I'm not planning to chase that 150 rank unless this season runs a lot longer than I think it will. I usually take a break every season after I hit 100 since I've made it that far on every season so far it it definitely feels to like a grind after this long of it. I was planning to skip this season mostly until I saw the incinerator weapon on the rewards.

Alyssa Mercante is engaging with people like the Helldivers 2 dev and other people on Twitter just to make content for Kotaku. She’s not doing it as an actual journalist, she’s maliciously stirring up things. She’s provably singlehandedly making it harder for G/O Media to sell Kotaku.

I had no idea who that was so i googled.

Alyssa Mercante, a known figure in the gaming journalism sphere for pushing a narrative over a truth, recently made significant updates to her social media profiles that suggest a shift in her career path away from Kotaku, where she was previously employed.May 9, 2024

I like cheap games, but not enough to subscribe and pay to a new VPN levels of like. Sorry $2 Streets of Rage 4 digital code. Maybe another day.
 
I also googled her and the first thing I saw was her twitter post objectifying some firemen. Don’t blame her, they’re hot, but I also doubt she would like kindly on people objectifying women who are just doing their jobs.

Hypocrisy is a job requirement when working at Kotaku.
Exactly. I totally agree about games journalism being a misnomer. It hasn’t been that way in a long time. Especially when corporations bought the homegrown sites and then access to games affected how game reviews and previews were written. Then came politics. I love Harry Potter, preordered the game, and played it all the time until I finished it. All the drama was ridiculous and drummed up by idiots who don’t leave the internet. I remember The Gamer gave Hogwart’s Legacy a 1 just to spite the game. I only watch YouTubers for games coverage now.
 
Yeah I miss the small sites like joystiq, nintendorks, even the magic box. They were like hobbyist enclaves and not much more. Then suddenly all these people with MAs in Literature or Gender Studies or some useless shit decided they wanted to be game journalists for whatever reason… and then everyone younger than a GenXer was suddenly a gamer, so now there was a ton of money to be made in shoving ads on as much clickbait as possible. Awful combo, and now here we are.

I sold 2 games on Gameflip. How long will the money be pending before I can get it?
That depends on several variables... first of all if the buyer actually completes the transaction, by "completing it" which must happen within 3 days otherwise it will be closed automatically if there's no conflict issued from the buyer.

After that it can be a few hours up to a few days. The more good feedback you get the shorter the time will be up to be receiving it instantly, after the buyer is completing the action. However I sold a few things already on GF back then and iirc it was about 2 days everytime the transaction was completed by the buyer or closed after those 3 days.

Also you can see the remaining time for the payout under "activity" as soon as the transaction counts as completed.

Additional note: When I did sell things, quite a lot of buyer never bothered with either feedback or closing the transaction early. So I had to wait the full 3 days quite often additionally to the time that is your given pending time.

Also you'll usually receive credit to your account first and have to choose a method of actually getting the payout manually. Saying that the methods of actually extracting your payout are limited to Payoneer or Skrill. Never used either of these services...

IGN wasted no time firing people from those acquisitions.

While not surprising, it's an even sadder day that horrible outlets like IGN and Kotaku yet remain on top.
 
They should have laid off some of the idiotic writers they have at IGN and replaced the “redundancies” there.

(Though I recognize that these are people too and any layoffs suck)

Going to take 2 days. I can't use PayPal or Venmo or zelle? Odd.
 
I've been really enjoying AC Valhalla so much that I decided to pick up the ultimate edition of Odyssey for $17.99
Don't know when I'm going to get to it because I think I want to try Origins next after Valhalla but for the price it seemed right to add it to the backlog.
I really enjoy raiding camps with my Viking Crew. Currently working on the Grantebridgescire story Arc. I waited to start this one until I got all the content for cheap. I bought the season pass for $10 a long while ago and finally got Ragnarok for $10 this week.

1000gs achieved in Hellblade 2. This game is a true cinematic experience. There is literally no HUD or button prompts in the entire game. I've been waiting for a game to WOW me this generation and HB2 definitely takes the crown as the most graphically impressive game. Curious to see what else Ninja Theory are working on. Apparently they are working on two other games. One of them code named Project Mara.

Like I said I recently felt like being WOWed so thought now was a good time to subscribe to Ubisoft+ as I've been wanting to check out Avatar Frontiers of Pandora, Skull and Bones and Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. These games were definitely visually impressive. I'd say Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine is probably even more impressive than Unreal 5. The great thing about Ubisoft+ is that all of the games included come with the Ultimate edition and all of the DLC. That's one of the reasons why Ubisoft are pricing their Ultimate editions so high, to try to funnel people into their subscription service and I have to say it kind of works lol.

I'm planning on playing Hellblade 2 this weekend I have some time off coming up so I plan to run through it Friday morning.

The Ubisoft + sub just doesn't work for me at this time because I own a bunch of their games in my backlog I just need to play them.
I already had Odyssey on PlayStation 4, I got it for like $10 physical but I have been waiting forever for the season pass to hit $10 but it will not go that low some reason. So since the season pass is always like $15.99 I decided to just buy the ultimate edition for Xbox.

The Anvil engine is impressive in Valhalla. I started the game in performance mode for the prologue and then I decided to see how it looked in Quality mode and it was a massive difference in graphic fidelity. The frame rate has been stable in Quality so I'm sticking with it.

Yeah. The days when fans were the writers have long since been gone. The people writing now are trying to use it as stepping stone for a better gig while pushing their culture agendas. I don’t about your stance on “whatever” when I want to find out if the game has technical issues. Damn I miss Joystiq. And Computer Gaming World. Those were the days.

Or just don't be an alt left "journalist" that does nothing but give votes to the other team. All those people do is shoot themselves in the foot. They aren't gaining any support.

They are the reason why (we) democrats lose elections.
 
Dabbled in Hellbade 2 on my Series X but I think I'm going to try it on PC to see if I can hit 60fps. My monitor is also much nicer than my TV, and the sound hardware will be more immersive too.

Gaming journalism is a misnomer anyway. These sites and writers are basically the PR & marketing wings of the game industry. That’s what the other side doesn’t get when they whine about “ethics in game journalism.” There’s literally no such thing. And that’s ok. It’s not that serious, it’s gaming. Just write about games and leave out the clickbait and ragebait.

I used to read Destructoid almost daily, but they only show 2-3 news articles and then it's a lot of guides and editorials. I'm 100% fine with there being other content but that is NOT why I visit that page. Even hobbies have given into the 24 hour news cycle where they just need content, content, content. It's exhausting.
