#13442184 List of all FREE Xbox Live Marketplace content (2.0)

Posted by BudzMcGee on 25 August 2016 - 07:45 PM

Forza Motorsport 6 seems Free play Days or Free: https://i.imgur.com/E8MINnE.png

Its not the standard edition, that you can buy fo 30 bucks and not the demo, but on the console there is the Install button. I don't see in my Xbox app as on the picture, so a bit strange, but most of the weekend stuffs starts on Thursdays...

Ahhh. I was super confused why this showed up. Now I know. Wonder if offline play will work once free weekend is over.

OFF: Just found a "Leftover add-ons" button in the Xbox One settings / storage - there you can manage (delete) the previously downloaded add-ons for games. Maybe you can get some free space by deleting the useless add-ons. Found addons for Forza Horizon 2 that I sold more than a year or DLCs for Project cars that I never had...

That's awesome, thanks. Now if only they had a "You own this but didn't download this DLC you also own" or "These games you own have free dlc" option. lol

Limbo is free as part of E3 (they announced their next game).

The listing definitely says both for seasons 2 & 3. I bought season 1 as well but that only listed bluray so I knew what to expect with that.

To clarify I'm saying I didn't even noticed that it said DVD on the listing. You're right it does. I'm agreeing that Best Buy made a mistake.

Even though seasons 2 and 3 of Arrow said they were supposed to be bluray/DVD my copies are bluray only. Am I missing something?

Didn't notice that on the listing. That's totally incorrect on Best Buy's part. Don't think there's any version of Arrow season 3 that has both.


That's a completely fair "angry letter" to best buy if you bought it expecting/wanting both.

Meant to give this away on Tuesday for the 20th anniversary of Resident Evil.
Resident Evil: Damnation


Thanks, I was actually able to grab this one but work pulled me away and I forgot to say something.

If you don't already own Dredd this should be an obvious choice.

Very tempting to use for Rare Replay. That's like exactly a game that I want but don't want to pay for.

Did you not read the title of this thread?  The b1g1 is ONLY on $19.99 games, chief.

If you went back a thread you'd see he did. It appears you didn't read past the title though.

The screen capture says "not on planogram." It says nothing about $19.99 games. NOP games will be really any game that doesn't have a "designated spot" on the floor plan. Planogram's are the instructions for how the items in the aisle should be displayed and they are often pretty specific. If a game isn't listed on said planogram then it'd be one of these (if this memo makes any sense at all).


I actually almost got a job making those said planograms. That isn't relevant, just rambling.


Assuming the NOP part is correct, some good opportunities here. Especially with price matching if it works.

#12547007 Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked Permanent Price Drop - $30

Posted by BudzMcGee on 04 March 2015 - 06:31 PM

This seems like one of those too good to be true deals
Wonder how far from bankruptcy they are. Wouldn't want to be spending money on a club that will be gone next year

Not close at all really. They struggled like 2-3 years ago and rebounded pretty well actually after a lot of major changes. Amazingly, when the economy went bust people stopped buying TV's and that hurt them pretty bad for a bit. They now have a business model that involves a lot of third parties helping to reduce their overhead. 


Gamers Club Unlocked has been the biggest joke to me on this site for the longest time now.  My BestBuy has been drastically downsizing its movie and games section for over a year and a half now.  They used to have a full aisle for each platform, and over a dozen full aisles of movies.  Now they've got about 1/3rd of an aisle dedicated to a particular system and the movies department has maybe four or five aisles.  It's impossible to find any movies there that aren't brand new releases, and even then, it has to be a blockbuster.


I talked to a guy there a couple years ago when I was looking for a Blu that they didn't have in stock and he said that BestBuy was about to start phasing out media because "everyone is buying their movies and games digitally now."  I didn't believe BestBuy would be that stupid, but apparently it seems like that's true.  "Turn on the Fun" is now "Turn on the...washing machine?"


I suspect anyone buying a GCU account now won't be able to use it in-store within six months, atleast at mine, unless they're buying a day-one $60 game.


Rant over.

I buy Blu Rays all the time but even I have to admit most people don't and there is a reason Best Buy has downsized that section in most stores (.com still has a great selection though and they constantly rotate older/cheaper titles through the stores). As for gaming, most of the stores around me have a solid selection and usually a full aisle per console (in some cases a little more).  The stores dedicate floor space to what sells. They could fill half the store with movies and games but they'd probably pay a hefty price for it. Great example, the Mall of America store seems to have a bit less space dedicated to TV's than most stores but has a huge phone and movie section compared to most. I imagine it is because mall shoppers are more likely to buy those items than a TV (this isn't a Best Buy a lot of locals go shopping at).
