Anyone have any idea when or how often Diablo 3 drops to <$20 digital download? I kind of want to get it digital and sell my disc. Its always been a go-to game.

Since the option to buy the game WITHOUT the Necromancer add-on is no more, you probably won't see the game drop to $20 for a long time, if ever. I bet the new low price will be the $30 it was just on sale for.

That sucks, I already have the Necromancer add-on. I just wanted to have the game saved to my Xbox so I didn't have to swap discs when I got the random urge to play some Deebo lol

I just own Halo things, not FM7 things.

Right, do you own the expansion, Awakening the Nightmare, for Halo Wars 2?

Help me fellow XBL Deals forum members, you're my only hope. I already have my XBox One X and I have been rocking it in gloriously faster 720p. I am ready to skip 1080p and go straight to 4K HDR. I have narrowed down my options to the 75" Sony 850E, 900E, 940E or Samsung MU8000 or KS9000. I can live with any one of those and it all boils down to price. My understanding was that the best time to buy a new TV was the week before the Super Bowl. However, while researching TV it seems March/ April might be a better time, with higher probability of less available selection of models on sales. Thoughts and experiences? I appreciate the feedback

I own the 65" MU8000 and love it.  I cant say its better than the others cause I haven't owned any other 4k set before but I would buy it again.  I don't have any complaints about it other than the smart tv applications can run a little slow but if you watch everything through your 1x it wont even be an issue.  Once you are watching something that problem disappears anyway.  I still have the VCR xbox one so I cant speak to 4k gaming but recently played through Inside and started up Far Cry 4 again and both looked great.  Good luck, I know its hard to pick one.

I just checked my Bing account this morning and yeah I don't see the $5 option anymore either. Looks like $3, $10, etc. Maybe a glitch or the onset of eventual fade-out of the MS gift cards entirely. :(

Either would be a great pic (see what I did there). I own the 65” Samsung and it has a great picture. However, I bought one of the 55” Sharps for Black Friday for $300 that is as good or maybe even a little better. Here’s the kicker, gaming HDR (which I didn’t even think worked at first) is noticeably more vibrant on the Sharp.

I bought the TCL P whatever model and it rivals my MU8000 but it's $1200 less. Lol.

I've seen them go in and out of stock before too. It's not a new thing, I bet they will be back.

Sorry I misunderstood.  I just own the game + SP, not the expansion.

You guys are making me want a new TV! I’ve been happy with my 50” KU6300 but know there are better models out there. But I’ve been spending too much money as it is and will just try to blindly assume that my picture is the best picture.

I only have the best picture. The very best picture. A big, beautiful picture.

I honestly can't tell the difference anymore. I have the MU8000, the TCL and an LG OLED and they all look the same to me at this point.

It's called Microsoft Rewards in Canada and I noticed a couple weeks ago that Gift cards were changed to just $3 and $10. This week, it appears gift cards have been removed altogether.

Just make sure you buy your next TV from Norway. They have the best TVs.

With 8K TVs being announced things are just getting too crazy. At some point my eyes can only take in so much information and detail.

They pull it out of the choices when they remove it from being a hot deal early.  It has always come back so far.

I got it and I only have Halo stuff as well with H5 being my most recent.

Yeah, I was gonna get the 55S, but for a little more money the P seems the way to go.  Just waiting on a Super Bowl/end of seaon discount.  Seems like TCL's method of gaining entry into the US market is to just have constant low prices rather than price at a level of other equalish TVs and put them on sale every now and then.

The other two are great, but if they look as good as your OLED, then your OLED's settings need adjusting.  No offense, just saying.  My wife is completely oblivious to TV differences as in it took awhile for her to recognize the difference from an old tube TV to a plasma HD TV.  We went to look at 4ks a month ago and she was thinking it was a silly waste... until she saw the Samsung and Vizios and LGs set up in Best Buy.  Immediately she understood my desire to upgrade from our 1080p LCDs and plasma.  Then we went over to the OLEDs and right away she said she wanted one of those instead of the LEDs.  We can't afford an OLED so I really let slip Pandora's Box on that one.

I'm kind of embarrassed to say but I've never adjusted any settings on any of these TVs. Lol.

The biggest difference I saw was when i went from my normal 1080 tv to the MU8000 with 4K and HDR. After that I got the OLED and didn't really see a huge difference. I just got the TCL last month with a coupon at Best buy for $590 with tax and 10% best buy bucks back on my best buy card. The TCL looks the same to me. Lol.

I have the Xbox One S on the TCL, the Xbox One X on the MU8000 cause it's the biggest and I have a PS4 Pro on the OLED. Best picture so far is the Ass Creed Origins on the Xbox One X. Uncharted 4 on the OLED is amazing too.

It’s the OG black and white buttons that make me say no to that controller. Those buttons had the worst placement, being off set from the ABXY positions.
