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.

So has anyone else's ms rewards been slow at adding points for purchases? Pre ordered outriders the day that e-mail came out with hints about it being on gamepass by monday still no points for my purchase then they annouced it so I cancelled the pre order. Used that money to buy some stuff on the sale and still haven't received any points for the new purchases.
Same here, I've been waiting for points on a few purchases I made on Friday. Was gonna give it a day or two more.
 
I hit my limit with playing games just to achievement whore. I just bought Xmas Adventure for Kids and it's horrible. It doesn't have achievements and it doesn't even work on top of constantly asking for permission for my info.  I'm done with caring about my gamerscore, it's got me playing bottom of the barrel games doing tedious grinds and making games feel like work. 

I'll hit a million Gamerscore in a couple of years just playing good games I neglect and will just slowly stop caring about 100%-ing every game I touch. I started off with the Kingdoms of Amalur remaster and love it again already. Only a couple of hours in and it feels great, looks great and sucked me within minutes of playing and wants me to explore this world for 60 hours all over again!!

Does the Remaster have a save/character import capability?

Um so you bought something with that name out of the "content creators" area and it's gamerscore's fault? ;)

 
If I played and enjoyed the demo years ago and Chrono Trigger is my favorite game, what am I going to think of it? Does it just get worse after the beginning or something?
I thought it was fantastic. Yes the stories don't converge as well as I hoped but still well worth the 100 hours I put into it.

I grew up on squaresoft and also love CT.

I would say that Octopath is good but not great. Worth playing. Certainly has its moments. Most memorable for me are some great bits on the soundtrack. Characters and their dialogue just weren't as interesting/engaging as they should have been for what the game attempts to do.

I will happily play it again on Game Pass. Somehow the nsw version fails to run the 2d sprite-based game smoothly on some screens. "Too many sparklez! Gotta drop fps to 10!"

Story of my dog in spoiler tag.

Lost my best friend of 5 years to cancer last week, it went too quick. He was having trouble using the bathroom and was yelping out when he finally released. I took him to the vet the next day. They did a physical and found his prostate was enlarged and a mass on his large intestine. They wanted almost $600 for a scan and bloodwork to confirm if the mass was cancer. I asked what would be the next step? The vet said she would refer me to another vet over a hour away for surgery, around $3,000-$5,000 in cost. I told her to hold off and see if I could get the money together. She gave me some meds to help him use the bathroom and they worked for a day. Two nights after the visit he couldn't go at all and I stayed up all night with him till the vet opened the following morning. They took him on in and gave me a call 3 hours later. They went ahead with the scan and found the mass was alot bigger than she expected and did confirm it was cancer. She said that due to the size of the mass and his age surgery was out. She wanted to give him pain meds and muscle relaxers and send him home. I asked how long did he have and what would his quality of life be? She said not good, organs would start to shut down and he would have maybe 4 days to live. I told her I didn't want him to suffer longer than what he already has. At 4pm Thursday me and my family stayed with him till he went to sleep. He always stayed at my side no matter where I went in the house or out in the farm he wanted to be there. He was hard headed but goofy dog. I loved him since he jumped in my car 5 years ago, he was a rescue who was 5 at the time. If you have a pet give them a extra treat and a good belly rub in honor of my dog, Bruno.
Sorry to hear that.

Pets are family.

 
New MS Headset isn't making a good first impression. So far it seems worse at picking up things like me pressing the A button vs the Arctis 9x.  It also puts pressure under my ears when it clamps down on my head and with allergies being really bad this week, it's really annoying.

 
That wasn’t very nice bro.


So are any of you guys picking up the Show? I’ve played it on my PS4 but since I play Xbox more never really got deep into it. thinking of making it my main game for awhile.

Day one. Even if no one else understands why. Can't wait!

I mean I would think it would be a downgrade from the 9x, don't think they are going head to head. 9x is double the price and that headband is totally worth it for exactly what you're talking about.

The 9x fits better but is still a tad snug. The A50s fit, sound, and chat the best, but the base station always needed unplugged because it locked up or wouldn't charge. I guess that's small potatoes compared to comfort or sound.

I thought it would be good to try to MS one for the auto mute and sound filtering options, but the auto mute seems to not work at all and it's mic still picks up everything. I wonder how good Best Buy is at returns for things like this. I don't think it's really defective, but sure does not seem to work as advertised with some of the features I was looking forward to. I'll try it some more tomorrow.

did you adjust it in the accessories app

 
Um so you bought something with that name out of the "content creators" area and it's gamerscore's fault? ;)
It was in the new games section with everything else tho.

But nah, I wouldn't say it's the gamerscore fault or anything. Too many of those games have been popping up recently that are very shoddy rip offs of better games and I eventually had to ask myself why am I not playing the better game?

Absolutely! It's my most played game by far every year (900+ hours for The Show 20) and I couldn't be more excited to switch over to XBox for it!
 
If I played and enjoyed the demo years ago and Chrono Trigger is my favorite game, what am I going to think of it? Does it just get worse after the beginning or something?
CT is one of my favorites ever as well!

I guess I shouldn't oversell my disappointment with the game. Technically it's fine, it plays decently, looks great and has adequate music. The game just never felt like it took off and hooked me like Chrono Trigger. I was mostly just bored alot of the time and waiting to entralled and it just never happended.

My expectations for this game were probably too high. This game pushed me to buy a Nintendo Switch and I went in expecting to relive the same experiences I had with the best SNES rpgs and it just didn't happen.

 
Looking forward to Undertale. Been keeping an eye out for Switch sale buy this is even better.

Rough playing two multiplayer games that seem to have so many events that distract from the backlog but at least I have fun. Just finished the overwatch "event" so now I can start the Apex event and then a bigger Overwatch event is happening in April.

Yeah, they need to take that crap out of sales sections too. I hate that creator content junk - especially when they put the price to $20 and have a 95% off sale when it isn't even worth $1.

Absolutely! I’m preordering as soon as the punchcard shows up. It ended up being the only thing I played on my PS4.
 
Can someone point me to a gameshare guide/give me the dummy version? Is it really as simply as they sign in and set their box as home for my account? Reconnected with one of my oldest friends and turns out he's got an Xbox but doesn't have Live/GP.

I've been playing a lot of Dirt 5, it's really scratching that arcade racer itch. Online is an embarrassment as you're simply dumped into a race with no choice of type. (It doesn't help I can't play Wreckless because I'm stuck on the early 1v1 and I don't remember what stopped me from FH4)

Yes. Your purchases and subscriptions can be accessed by any account on your home xbox. To share your xbl/gamepass, they would sign in on your account and set their xbox as your home. They then sign out of your account and shouldn't have to sign in ever again.

This means that on any other xbox (ie the one you use) you have to be signed in to Live to access those things, so when your internet is down you won't be able to play any of your games. That's the only downside other than sharing your password, which you could change to something else while they sign in and then change back afterward.

Xbox is getting a new suspend / pause feature that will allow you to keep your spot in a game while still getting the full download speed. Would love to not even have to do this but downloads have been a sore point while a game is running in the background so I’ll take it.

Also Digital Foundry had great things to say about the FPS Boost on Dishonored and especially Prey.

Anyone watch the trailer for Genesis Noir that's coming to Game Pass this month? Game looks legit bonkers.

Also Journey to the Savage Planet is leaving end of this month so I guess I gotta start cracking on that.

Pretty much sign onto to each others Xbox, making that signed on user as the home xbox. and then sign back in as you.

Need a new TV -- Any thought on Vizio P Series Quantum vs TCL 6 R635 (65”) – check RTINGS and they like the Vizio a little better but I know a lot of folks on here like the TCLs quite a bit (they both check most of the boxes for the new consoles) I think both are good but just wanted to see if anybody had a reason for liking one more – thanks!

 
Anyone know if the Outer Worlds Season Pass that’s on sale currently will trigger the MS rewards punchcard for Murder on Eridanos? I’m guessing no, but I’m case someone has had a different experience in the past?

I was just playing Wreckfest last night and that 1v1 race almost made me uninstall the game. I would hit the guy and spin him out but somehow he would be right behind me by the next turn but if I made a bad turn it was impossible for me to catch up. I ended up turning the difficulty down for that race.

I have one of each (older models) and they are both really solid. If anything I’d say the Vizio’s picture is better if you compare directly, but if you aren’t side by side the TCL is great. I’ve had some quality control issues with Vizio. I’m on my first replacement and will likely need a second. They says they have a 2 year warranty and if you get it at Costco it’s another 2 years.

As far as built in apps go the Roku on TCL is far better than Vizio’s android system.

Damn Genesis Noir looks crazy. Definitely gonna play that.

Savage planet I found to be really fun but I also played it in co-op. Not sure how it plays solo, but I thought it was a cool unique game and not too long which was nice
 
I've been waiting to EA Play to come to pc game pass.   Wanted to test out the ray tracing in Battlefield 5 on my rtx card.  Wouldn't mind giving squadrons a go as well.  

 
Same here waiting for punchcard.. I bought a PS4 just for The Show.

Are we just assuming there will be a punch card? I obviously hope there is I would just find it interesting to do a punch card for a Sony title. But The Show just being on XBox has proven anything is possible I guess lol
 
So Disco Elysium Final Cut is arriving later this year while PS4/5 gets it on 3/30. Maybe the devs wanted to make sure people buy it on PSN before releasing it directly on GamePass. :)
 
https://blog.playstation.com/2021/03/17/play-at-home-2021-update-10-free-games-to-download-this-spring/

Lots more free-free games on PSN. Interesting strategy for no GamePass, especially with how good PS+ has been
I only own 2 playstation 4 games and one of them is being given for free. That's half my collection ruined. :(

Although my collection is now 500% larger than before assuming that I remember to track down my login credentials to claim them in time (still need to remember to grab Ratchet and Clank too before its too late.)
 
Eh, I already own all but one of those PSN games. That’s why I still like games at launch with GamePass.

But it’s definitely a cool move on Sony’s part.

If VR support comes to Xbox, I REALLY hope it's by way of existing hardware and not proprietary VR like Playstation.
There used to be an Oculus bundle that included an Xbox One controller - I always thought that might lead to a VR partnership between Oculus and Xbox, but sadly it never materialized.

I have a 6 series and I love it.
No problems with it at all.
