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 - 2024-05-21
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.

Is there a specific criteria for getting the “play a pc game” quest in the Xbox app? I tried launching some game pass games via cloud streaming but they didn’t pop the reward. So I tried going through MS Solitaire, which is on my pc and that didn’t pop it either. I’d really like to get that extra 50 pts a day
The PC game needs to be Xbox Live enabled, which is why Solitaire works. The quest doesn't pop immediately. I've noticed there's a bit of a delay before it actually pops, like a few minutes. Not sure if using the Steam versions of Microsoft titles (Halo Infinite, FH5, Flight Sim, etc) work but I think it should since you're forced to log into Xbox Live on them.

I don't believe cloud streaming works because you're streaming the console version of the game.

Just opening up solitare for 5 min does the job for me.

Knocked out 16 achievements from Pupperazzi last night. Charming little game, that one. Probably do some cleanup to finish it off tonight.

 
I was a bit early but does seem a new controller is coming. Then again, patents doesn't mean it will come to fruition.

Well, guess this is it > https://www.theverge.com/2023/1/4/23539888/asus-xbox-controller-raikiri-pro-oled-display-screen

 
I'm torn on Danganronpa. I just realized it's a game I'd actually like and naturally, it's leaving Game Pass very soon. I doubt I'd have any way to finish it before it leaves. I started it, but I'm tempted to hold off until it goes on sale and pick it up. Or maybe I'll forget about it entirely by then. Haha. Anyone who has played it have any thoughts?

 
Man, gotta squint and get a magnifying glass to enjoy my porn on that thing...

I'm about half way through the game and it isn't bad, but it does make me feel my age with many of the characters because it does rely on abunch of anime teen archetypes that you've known to expect that younger people will relate to while being in my 30's it's much more different. With that said, the court room stuff of figuring out who committed the murders is incredibly fun, but the double edge sword of that is it keeps it fun by introducing abunch of gameplay mechanics each time and each and every time it does an awful AWFUL job of explaining them ("suck up this phrase to turn it into a bullet and use that phrase bullet to shoot a suspicious phrase." Wait? What? I Mean...How??). Also if you miss out on this on XBox, I was able to buy it on Switch for $2 during Christmas and it's also constantly on sale on PlayStation for under $10 so hopefully we'll get the same here.

I occasionally check in there. I read the last page or two on occasion. GS hasn't had very many good deals in a long while and the quality of posts is not at the level of this thread. So I don't bother following it like I once did.

 
Wondering if Microsoft is even going to have an announcement of the GamePass games for the first half of January. Or if we’re just going to see one pop up here and there.
 
Is there a specific criteria for getting the “play a pc game” quest in the Xbox app? I tried launching some game pass games via cloud streaming but they didn’t pop the reward. So I tried going through MS Solitaire, which is on my pc and that didn’t pop it either. I’d really like to get that extra 50 pts a day
Solitare worked for me its really the only game I play on my PC on microsoft. Having a decent PC and Game Pass I should probably change that habit now.

 
FH5 playlist

Trial - Road - C600 Ford Retro Muscle - Used the 2010 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (767 894 962).  Has the light bar.  AI isn't tuned, so shouldn't be too much of a problem unless a majority of your team also comes in without tunes and can't drive.  Team won both races.  Person in a '93 Cobra won both, I was 2nd in both, but we were the only ones in tuned cars.  Others finished 6-7-10-12 in first race to squeak by, but 3-5-11-12 to take the second by a wider margin.

  • Horizon Mexico Circuit
  • Arch of Mulegé Circuit
  • ??
EventLab - A800 Ford - 2 laps, about 1:40 per lap, no drivatars.

Avenida Speed Trap - B700 Ford Pre-1970 - 130 mph - Hit 135.76 with the 1965 Ford Mustang GT Coupe (712 804 244).  Started from the paved T intersection south of the Goliath.  Cleared it with the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 302 (109 426 222) first starting a bit further south, but that couldn't handle the turns in the speed zone.  ('69 Mustang is needed for Tuesday's daily.)

Riviera Maya Speed Zone - B700 Ford Pre-1970 - 100 mph - Hit 103.22 with the above Mustang GT Coupe.  Started from the paved 4-way east of the zone.

Midnight Muscle - Street - A800 Ford Modern Muscle - No problems with the 2018 Ford Mustang GT (163 310 707).

  • Tunnel Run
  • Las Laderas
  • Coast Run (rain)
Scrambling for Time - Dirt - A800 Ford AWD - No problems again for the 2018 Ford Mustang GT.

  • El Pípila Scramble
  • Fuera Del Camino Trail (rain)
  • San Juan Scramble
Fording a Path - B700 Ford Classic Rally - Used the 1970 Ford GT70 (133 783 210).  Had no problems with the first and third races, but had to run the second one a couple times.  Despite the rally suspension, the car still sits a bit low and kept getting slowed down by the numerous streams crossing the route.

  • River Scramble
  • La Selva Scramble (rain)
  • Cascada Trail
Photo Challenge - Fast travelled to the dirt road just south of the De Otro Mundo icon, switched to the 1965 Ford Transit, photo registered.

Collectibles - You'll find lanterns driving along the top of sand dunes in Dunas Blancas.  Probably out of reach of most cars, but pickups should be able to hit them without needing to jump.  I found 38 in my first drive through the area.  Expect they'll respawn when I play later in the week to get the other 12 for the challenge.

Hot Wheels

Treetops Speed Zone - B700 Ford Pre-1970 - 125 mph - Hit 141.25 with the 1965 Ford Mustang GT Coupe from above starting from the 2nd intersection east of the zone.

Speed Beast - Speed - S1 900 Ford - No problems with the 2018 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5 (759 234 937).  (Car is needed for Sunday's drift zone daily.)

  • Dragon's Fall Speed Circuit
  • Nexus Speed Circuit
  • Ram's Head Speed Sprint

 
Does quick resume work between series consoles? I just started a game I had last played on my other console and it put me right where I stopped...
 
I Know I'm late to the party, but finally got around to beating Halo Infinite last night with friend's in co-op and man, that's a stupid fun campaign. It kinda went to where I wanted from a Halo game single player after 2 or 3 from a gameplay perspective where it just takes advantage of it having a vast world you can explore with vehicles and running wild with it to actually be more open. Like last two games were fine, but they never felt they opened up so going from that to this is so much fun with four players. My only major gripe is I wish every Halo game ended with a race to escape whatever installation you're in because it's fun watching friend's mess up and fall to their deaths and die or get stuck as the timer ends.

 
Setting up my new Series X right now, and two things I did not expect:

What an absolute unit this thing is. I totally get the Kingpin jokes now

Also, my 8 year old saying “we don’t need another Xbox!” My wife is more on board with this purchase than he is.
 
Random but for those looking to replay Dead Space 1 on Impossible, I just noticed that Game Pass Ultimate Perks added a second Dead Space DLC/upgrade bundle, which includes the Tank Suit that gives you 60% damage resistance.

Dammit, this would've been nice to have when I was replaying the game last November. Impossible is actually not too bad but this would've saved me lots of deaths  :bomb:

Check and see if they switched bodies. It's a new year, you never know what might have happened.

 
I tried cloud gaming on a Samsung TV today in the Microsoft booth at CES. The guy told me how far cloud gaming has come. There was a dualsense controller next to the Xbox controller so I tried the Dual sense controller and it wasn't connecting so the guys like just use the Xbox controller.

I chose FH5 and after waiting about a minute for it to load up, I got into the game and it was immediately horrible. Controls were laggy. Graphics weren't loading. Pixelation was on the right top of the screen and frame rate was all over the place. I only played for a minute before I gave up.

If this is how far cloud gaming has come, it still has a long why to go. I've used cloud gaming a couple of times on my Series X and it was a much better experience. Maybe it was just some kind of crappy connection or something is wrong with Forza Horizon 5 because there were other games to try but I didn't even bother. I could always try different games tomorrow if any of you are curious.

Checked my achievements list and apparently I did this in 2017 along with only using the Plasma Cutter.

Such a good game.
 
Where do you see that for me it shows up for 40 bucks
Look under YNSJ seller. I think on that other forum where they discuss these out of country purchases, they believe that sellers only have x number of codes. I’ve had my xbox account for 19years now, so I have no plans to use these sort of codes. It was very painful when I redeemed that contest win from Bloomy. He provided me a code for the Bioshock Collection (I finished them all - thanks again) and boy was it a pain to redeem. I am in Canada and that was a US based code. I did chat with Microsoft about it and the code magically worked (it initially would not redeem saying it was not for my region blah blah) after a number (3 times?) of support chat sessions.

I was just looking at my Wishlist. I have Cuphead and Cult of the Lamb. I believe Cuphead is never on sale for more than 10-15% off.

I also have Hot Wheels on my Wishlist. We all recall this was announced for gamepass but got pulled. I don’t see it being mentioned again anywhere. Anyone seen any updates on that?

Reallly enjoying the Vampire Survivors. I even bought the DLC. It’s such a great game that works so well on the mobile streaming app.
 
So, did it again. Purchased an extra copy of Gunvolt Chronicles Luminous Avenger iX (Arg). If anyone is interested like the post and I'll random it on Saturday.

Also grabbed RPG Time and Kaiju Wars based on a PC Gamer articles about hidden gems in the Steam sale. They looked pretty neat, maybe one day I'll even play them.

It’s really improved since it first launched. I bet they had a wifi connection since all tvs now have wifi. They should know to use a Ethernet setup to impress everyone.

In my experience, xCloud (or whatever they call it now) is the definition of "results may vary." I have tried it on multiple platforms (Xbox, Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad) in multiple locations with multiple qualities of Internet connection. There is no rhyme or reason as to what level of performance I get. I've had everything from games never loading or being completely unplayable to almost imperceptible from local play. I guess that's why it's still technically in beta. I'm old enough that I'm still amazed it works at all, and that it can be absolutely playable at best. But if this is the future MS wants, and my hunch is it is, they still have quite a way to go before it's ready for the mainstream.

Cloud gaming is great when I'm watching something only half way interesting on TV and can play something half heartedly on my phone at the same time. Still doesn't replace playing bigger games on the TV, but I see no need to ever play crappy mobile games on my phone when I can play random gamepass Xbox games on it.

I'm just glad these advances in tech never came around when I was younger. I feel fairly certain I would have never graduated college if I could have played Halo on my phone while sitting in class lol.
 
I’d rather a play a mobile game on my phone and console game on my TV or monitor. There’s something to be said for playing games on the device they were designed for.

I Agree.
