Even with the new news of 360 marketplace not shutting down I still think I'm gonna splurge for some of those back compatible but not on current marketplace games. Orange box almost feels not even worth it since I already have portal and will never play TF2 on Xbox if it's still even up but I guess to have hl2e2 on Xbox is worth it.

Side note wasn't prince of Persia on sale the other day or did I totally miss that?

I started playing Recompile a couple of months ago. I got like 3 hours in but then ran out of whatever the currency is and had to go backtrack to some level that I couldn't  remember and guides did nothing for me so I just quit playing. It's a cool Metroidvania so I am a little bummed. Not going to start all over again.

So, I just got an Xbox series s after not having Xbox for years. Question is, are there ever weekend sales? I wanted to get a few of the backward compatible games being delisted, but don't want to pay full price lol

They finally updated the Twitch app. It seems to function better, no more video previews, but it isn't crashing constantly so far.

You can no longer chat from Xbox though, it just tells you to use your phone.

Nope. Just updates every Monday at 7PM EST and occasional seasonal sales that drop Thursday afternoon's and that's really it. Also if you haven't, get the XBox app on your phone if you have Game Pass and download the Microsoft Rewards app on the XBox and you can get additional bonus points to use on crap to offset prices.

well, i want to test to see if I can keep gamepass ultimate indefinitely using reward points. I dont want to pay any money.


Yeah that’s what I just started doing. Technically it’s a better “deal” if you consider the value of points to do the 3 year thing. But I just don’t want to spend money. So on my “dads account” I have it set to auto redeem each month. And then I just type the code on my account. Only just started, but it worked in feb.

It's been like 4 or 5 years, so it was about time. Don't watch from Xbox anymore, but still.

Well they're getting delisted the 7th and Monday is the 6th, so maybe? Would be weird to only be on sale like one day though.

I remember picking up the orange box on Xbox 360 when it was on sale for $5 years ago.  I have been pretty much on top of picking up 360 games when they went on sale. Sometimes this was a mistake since some of the games I purchased on sale eventually became GWG.

Soo how long does it usually take to receive a code from sellers on gameflip? I mean there was a pain in the a** verification process in between that was approved on all ends, but that was more than 12 hours ago...

I think I’ve “lost” about $20 from picking up games that eventually went GWG. What sucks even more is that I’ve barely played those games before it happened! Feelsbadman

Yeah, this is unlikely. Usually delisting sales start at least a week or two ahead. If a sale doesn't start by tomorrow I would recommend getting whatever you're going to. We don't know the exact time they'll be removed.

Is there a list anywhere of what titles are on marketplace that are backwards compatible but not on the Xbox store?

 

I got surprised earlier this week by not owning a few games that will be delisted next week and purchased them from the marketplace on my PC. I don’t need to every single one of them but if a worthy title I want to add to my digital addiction collection.

Still deciding on Skate 2………..

I'm using this list as a reference: https://twitter.com/...MufFEsuQuaHQGOQ altho AC Liberation doesn't appear on this list but also seems like it's not on the new marketplace so not sure if this list is 100%.

I went ahead and got Skate 2 and Jet Set Radio so far. Still debating Orange Box and L4D2. Would have loved to add Prince of Persia and AC Liberation but not at $20 a piece for those.

That is just for tiles being delisted next week on the marketplace, correct? Trying to see what else there might be that I need to pay attention to before that title gets either delisted or the marketplace closes altogether.

 

I did cave on Prince of Persia for $20 as I really enjoyed that game years ago on disc. Downloaded and still had my saves on cloud as last save was on 8/17/09. Have to love that feature.

You gotta watch for the DLC disappearing too. I went through the 22 games I own digitally (of the 46 listed for NA) then ran out of time.

 

Has DLC:
1. Assassin's Creed III
2. Assassin's Creed IV
3. Castle Crashers
4. Dark Souls
5. Darksiders II
6. Defense Grid
7. Far Cry 2
8. Iron Brigade
9. Lost Odyssey
10. Outpost Kalaoki X
11. Spelunky
12. Splinter Cell Conviction
13. The Raven Episode 1

 

Does not have DLC:
1. Aegis Wing
2. Breakdown - this is the Xbox original game, right?
3. Daytona USA
4. Final Fight: Double Impact
5. Jet Set Radio
6. Limbo
7. SVC: Alex Kid & Co.
8. Star Wars Battlefront - this is the Xbox Original game, right?
9. The Witcher 2

 

If a game isn't on either list, I haven't gotten to it. I'll try to go through the remaining 24 games tonight.

Another one down. This is one of those weird times from gaming news where I learn of what games are still being supported or were being supported.

Get that Prince of Persia DLC at least, you can always find a physical disc later but the Epilogue DLC will be gone forever

The industry is running out of. . .GaaS. 8-)

 

Speaking of, I've gotten so used to games being on Game Pass that TIL Hogwarts is not coming to GPU, which I could've sworn was. Whelp, major blunder for them as the game will probably die a slow death without a big launch. I feel that the IP doesn't carry the weight it used to and I would have casually gave it a shot had it been free. At least Wild Hearts will have a 10 hour trial on Game Pass, which I will be checking out. Wonder if it will steal me away from Sunbreak next month. . .and RE4 remake; FML why was the holidays so boring and now everything drops? :wall:

Might want to pick up the Prince of Persia DLC with the true ending, it is listed for $10 on the Xbox store so it shouldn't be delisted but you know...

The holidays were a chance to go through your backlog  :-

 

Xbox seems to have a good relationship with Warner Bros. I wouldn't rule out a Game Pass drop in the future.

That was a fun little rabbit hole.  You can still get the original game for $1 or $2 on the PC, but the DLC was only ever available on consoles. 

 

I had no idea that was how they handled the Epilogue.  Crazy.

If anyone wants to preorder the Digital Deluxe version of Hogwarts, it’s $10 off at Newegg with promo code XDSAVE. Aside from some cosmetics, it also allows you to play three days early.

Bubble bursting on these live servers with all the shutdowns or in some cases never getting to launch announced the past few days. I see knockout city got hit to end in June.

 

Streaming another one taking a hit as prices rising and content slowing down. Just found out a show I like (Snowpiercer) will now not air season 4 on Netflix / TNT even though filming was finished and a teaser trailer had dropped two months ago. This is fallout from the WB takeover / shakeup. Hoping someone grabs the rights so it can air.
