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.

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.

It’s a beautiful movie.
 
MS Solitaire Collection is having one of their rare 10K point events this weekend for the Dragonslayer achievement. Lasts from Sunday morning until Tuesday morning. Here's a TA session that was set up that can send you a reminder.

 
Ditto, but I knew we at least had a 4 because I remember it was Call of Duty Black Ops "IIII" instead of "4" or "IV."
Ya they just didn't number Black Ops Cold War as number 5. But I'm actually kind of excited to get back to the Black Ops universe I really like Treyarchs story campaigns.
 
I was averaging 75 to 85 fps on pc. Granted, I have an AMD 7900XTX, so obviously YMMV. That game is pretty.
Hoping i can play Hellblade 2 at a steady 60fps/1440p on PC with my 3070. Might need to upgrade during the next video card cycle.
On PC (Radeon RX6800m), it scales well for FPS if you're willing to adjust the graphics settings. With AMD FSR3, I can hit 60FPS or higher at 1080p and most graphical settings on High, dipping into the high 40s / low 50s during some scenes. Some games, that would be distracting, but for this one it's not a dealbreaker. at 1440p, I can stay in the 40s with most settings on high, which still looks and plays pretty nicely for a game like this. I'm going to switch back to the Series X and see how it compares graphically.

It's a gorgeous game regardless.
 
If you’re willing to do coordinated transfers, there’s still some nice deals on GameFlip. Got the new Wizardry remake for less than $6. And honestly it’s pretty easy and safe if you use a secondary account with no payment info linked.

That's what I do. Only thing that sucks is that it's not as smooth as buying a code and just redeeming it yourself within a minute.

Know Hellblade 2 got all the attention on GamePass this week but be sure to check out Hauntii. Hard to accurately describe but it’s a very cool dual-stick shooter/puzzler with some unique “haunting” mechanics. Might end up being one of my favorite indie games in a while.
 
Stuff that was counting down for tonight. Activision stuff is slated to end the morning of June 9th.

Just in time for the Showcase announcing them being added to Game Pass. /s

AC Mirage almost has me at 24.99 but I'm sure if I hold off till BF there will be a pretty good chance it'll be 19.99. The base version of the game is all you need correct? All the DLC mumbo jumbo is just skins not actual story quest stuff?

That's correct. No DLC is needed here to have the full story. The only minor exception is a Quest with the Forty Thieves that was a pre-order bonus. Saying that I did pre-order the collector's edition and for some reason they send me two codes for said Quest...

So if you actually decide to get it, let me know, I'd give you my other code! :)
 
Soooo....

I won tickets to the Xbox Showcase Premier Event in L.A.

Trying to figure out what exactly the event includes. Did anyone go last year that can fill me in? Is it a live stage event or just the stream presented on a movie screen? What activities are there after? Any pictures of the event? I want to make sure it's worthwhile before I drive 8 hours and stay at a hotel.

I went last year and thought it was pretty great. The presentation itself is just pre-recorded on the big screen so you're seeing the same thing you would watching at home. The Xbox team came out live on stage and talked for a few minutes (Phil Spencer, Sarah Bond, etc). You get a ton of free stuff. We got a star field bomber jacket, Xbox shirts, socks, etc. All food was free, including lattes with Xbox latte art on them while you wait to get in. I would've liked to go again this year but will be out of town so didn't enter. I think I posted some pics last year so check my post history.

Found the post from last year but the pics aren't showing up and most seem to be too large to upload. Here are a couple that I'm able to upload still. Me and a friend flew into LA last year and stayed for a couple of nights so turned it into a fun trip. Not sure if it would be worth driving 8 hours just to stay for 1 night and then drive immediately back but if you can turn it into a nice weekend trip with a friend, I think it's worth it.

How did you win tickets? I want to try to win too. I live in Orange County so LA is close.

They already picked the winners, but you can sign up for Fanfest. It had a contest for tickets and they usually have trivia during the stream. I won a $50 gear shop gift card last year and got some shirts.

 
Stuff that was counting down for tonight. Activision stuff is slated to end the morning of June 9th.

Just in time for the Showcase announcing them being added to Game Pass. /s

If you look closely, you can see a list of games coming to Game Pass on June 9th.
 
They already picked the winners, but you can sign up for Fanfest. It had a contest for tickets and they usually have trivia during the stream. I won a $50 gear shop gift card last year and got some shirts.

I didn't even know there was a contest. What a rip off.
 
I would not unless they're looking to enter the movie industry. Ninja Theory has incredible talent--just not at making games.
The game is incredible. It draws you in and makes you part of it. The gameplay itself has improved from the original with more varied puzzles and the combat feels more impactful.

But regardless, no movie could ever make me feel has the way this game does. It makes you feel like you are there. It’s much more than just “watching a movie” and comments to that effect are ridiculous IMO.

Not every game needs deep combat. There are games that make you feel something. That are meant to be experienced and take you to another place and draw on emotions. Experiences you can’t get by just watching a movie. I want a gaming industry that includes those kind of experiences.

Heavenly Sword? Enslaved: Odyssey to the West? Bleeding Edge? DmC: Devil May Cry? It's OK not to like their games, but to say that they don't know how to make games is as %#%*%# a take as it gets. All of their games are so unique. They clearly had a vision with Hellblade and there's not many games dealing with mental illness. You'd think there'd be more given all the crazies running around on twitter. 😅 Given Ninja Theory's uniqueness, talent and mastery of Unreal Engine 5, the Sky is truly the limit.

A couple of random thoughts for the week...

I don't think enough criticism is given to games that overstay their welcome. Might just be me, but I'm slogging my way through FF XVI right now and the combat is boring me to tears. The story is engaging and keeping me going, but the combat is an unwelcome distraction most of the time.

On the flip side a game like Stray, which I just beat this week, felt like it balanced the story/gameplay/mechanics very well in a 3-4 hour package. Both of these games reviewed with high 8's or 9's, but I would much rather play 10 games similar to Stray that kept me engaged the whole time than 1 FF XVI which went on too long.

I haven't played Hellblade 2 yet, but really enjoyed part 1. Xbox having a team that can make a good visual experience in UE5 is a big win if that can be leveraged throughout other studios. Sony has thrived on making immersive experiences, which most of us love. There are scenes in God of War, Uncharted, The Last of Us and Horizon that rival the best of modern Hollywood. Hellblade 2 could be a great moment for Xbox if they are able to start utilizing an engine like UE5 and create some immersive experiences with it. Let's just hope that Hellblade 2 meets whatever criteria Microsoft is using to determine success.

The vast majority of all games released now overstay their welcome. I remember thinking it was a problem in the ps2 era of games, now I try to find games that don't waste my time by padding out the game length.
 
I still need to finish FF XVI, but I don't think I will. I made it around 50% and gave up. The combat was garbage and I wasn't paying attention to the story but even if I was I don't think that would have kept me going. After XV and XVI I think it's safe to say I no longer enjoy the series which really sucks because IX and X are 2 of my favorite games.
 
Yeah, I can't fault Square for changing the series as technology evolved but Final Fantasy saw a severe decline in quality with the PSX releases and they kept regressing ever since.

Someday I hope the FF Pixel Collection makes it way to Xbox, and a Final Fantasy Tactics Collection would be great too.
 
This was leaked in December of last year, but now there might be some substance that Microsoft is going to license out the design of their next console to other manufactures to make. Kind of like the Window OS and PC.

How is that different from a PC? Except for hoping they can force a subscription to play online (except free2play), like a console.

No, not every game needs deep combat--it needs engaging gameplay. If the gameplay only amounts to making you feel something, then I can rattle off dozens of movies that do that for me. There's also plenty of games that do this while having the advantage of gameplay being a focus, not secondary. However, there is a niche for these games which is why the reviews range from 5's to 10's. I would much rather play a game that feels rewarding, and keep emotional cinematics in the theater.

Of those I've played Heavenly Sword and it was mid. That game did neither story nor gameplay well. The rest didn't even hit my radar honestly because they looked boring. Noticing a strong trend here. . .
