If you follow a guide, each episode is probably about an hour to an hour and a half and I believe there are five episodes per season.

Ok thanks.  So I can probably knock a season out in one sitting.

Welp. All of my excitement is dead. I thought it was BF4 Premium Edition that came with BF4+Premium Membership for $24.99. Never mind. These sales are lackluster.


Wait a second, so BF Premium does not include BF4?

It is just the expansion pack.

Assuming these prices are correct I'm going to be dropping around $350. This week between the new deals with gold and these sales. I'll be able to trade in 5 physical copies though for games I'm replacing digitally. I've been waiting for sales like this for a long time! Just wish there was more people selling xbl credit lol.

I'm always interested in purchasing Xbox Live credit in any denomination of cards! Please PM me of you have any extra :)

Nobody can see your posts and you are the only one who can see them?  Maybe you are dead.

I don't see what is so unbelievable about those prices that you would be banned for posting them. Prices are perfectly in line with the Black Friday week deals going on now. Disappointing prices. Was expecting many games to be $20-$25. Digital on consoles is a letdown when it comes to deals.

for sports and FPS games going digital is great

 

I don't buy anything digital unless it's cheaper than physical copy, but sports games would be the last thing I would buy digital. They are good for a year and then the new one replaces it. If I have a disc, I can trade it in for a fair amount toward the new one. Yearly FPS games like COD are a similar situation, but I would be much more likely to go back and play an older shooter than an outdated sports game, so it has more value.

It all depends on your taste and situation. The titanfall bundle is good considering it includes all DLC. But if you don't care for this then it is not a deal.

Yeah, Titanfall seems like the only good deal.

So it's just premium and not the game. I thought it was both also.

Seriously. You can tell who the people without GCU are if you see someone getting excited over these "deals".

 

Pretty much this. Plus digital has no resale value


I already got Destiny for about $10 (had a $50 promo credit at Microsoft store for them messing up an order of mine). But I play it so much, plus I have well over $160 sitting on my MS account that might expire sooner or later (didn't they say that points carried over from the 360 days would expire in 2 years or something?). I should add that I got that $160 for probably less than $50 total.

I play Destiny so much that disc switching is getting to be a pain. I could just buy the DLC pass for $35. But now for $81 I can get the digital edition which includes that pass. So really I'm just paying $46 of that MS funny money to switch to digital and then I can sell my disc. The only problem is that all this BF nonsense is going to depress the value of the physical disc so I'll probably only be able to get about $35 for it. So in the end I might be out $10 of virtual money for the convenience of not switching discs. I can live with that.

And oh yeah, I have GCU through 2019 ;).

How does anyone consider these good deals? You're absolutely stuck with these if you buy digital, but you can get almost any of these cheaper during BF on disc. Not to mention that Titanfall Season Pass was on sale for about the same price (if not cheaper) a few weeks ago.

Titanfall is a good deal...

They're good deals compared to normal DITITAL prices. I have gone 100% digital and am just waiting for sales to trade in my remaining X1 physical discs. Aside from going digital I've never sold a game after I purchased it. I have around 250 Xbox 360 and ps3 games that I'll never turn in. Since there is no gamers club unlocked type deal aside room the 10% off EA games this is some of the best deals the digital fans will find. I have 3 Xbox Ones in my house, and can play any game on any one at any point in time. Having discs jugled between 3 Xbox Ones would be a hassle. Throw in the "home" Xbox and it's a great deal.

BF3 Premium Edition was the game AND all the expansion packs.

 

Doubt they would change that for BF4.

Trying to decide of premium is worth it at $25. I've never purchased dlc for BF in the past. Do the add on maps stay populated? I know with cod the population goes down after time

Man, EVERYONE is discounting the Shadow of Mordor game.

 

This is not a new trend. If I am not mistaken all October releases are being discounted this BF. 

Despite Shadow of Mordor not having LOTR anywhere, it had a better launch than any LOTR title I believe.  Still it was foolish not to tack on LOTR in the title (remove Middle-Earth).

 

Anyway I don't think any other October release has had sales/drops like this.  Only Walmart is having a sale for Borderlands TPS.

 

 

Yeah but they get credit for discovering the $300 Xbox 360 TIV glitch at BB. That was nuts.

Can someone re-remind me of this?

That's the thing though. The Premium Membership is on sale only. BF4 Premium edition is not.

Well I just picked up BF4 pre-owned from GameFly for $13 and gonna go ahead and buy the premium membership when it goes live. 

If you buy it add me on XBL: thatsbarejones

* No digital sale for Forza Horizon 2...?


I'm really disappointed in this as well. Was really hoping they would match their retail price or at least come close to it.

Its utterly baffling to me.

 

Microsoft is a publisher.  They own the console.  Why the hell are there not more Microsoft-published games included in the Digital sale?  (where are.....Sunset Overdrive, Dead Rising 3, Forza Horizon 2, Zoo Tycoon, Kinect Sports Rivals)

 

I'm hoping we're missing something here - that the games listed are only half the titles going up over the weekend.  Or that Microsoft is running their own version of Daily Deals (a la Valve with Steam), and those were just the titles for Day 1 (Friday).  Either way, I suppose we're just 30 hours away from knowing....

I would really like to know why Microsoft has links to Sales of the physical discs of games they publish....rather than just having the games on sale digitally, too.

Premium has always been worth it to me. In my experience (600 hours in BF3 & BF4 multiplayer), the premium maps stay populated because the premium audience is mostly battlefield vets that play often and get sick of the core maps, while the core maps are usually casual players. There are so many perks w/ premium and assignments that unlock rewarding weapons. The F2000 in the Second Assault map pack is one of the best guns in the game IMO.

 

I would say paying full price at launch for Premium would be more ideal than paying half price after the last DLC drop, but you should still get plenty of multiplayer time to make the purchase worth it.
