  1. Thanks...didnt know Honk Kong did $s. Decided to just buy on the Japan MP though to avoid two foreign Xbox gift card purchases. Chaos;Child kept asking for a credit card though. Kinda pissed me off, but read somewhere that the digital copy does that. /sigh. Got Psycho-Pass though then used the balance to get Unmechanical and Earth Wars JP versions
  2. Am I doing something wrong? The Psycho Pass game is showing as $351 regular? And $87 on sale!!? I only changed my location...other stuff is english still... is that still yen then and the $ is showing since I have english selected? Hoping thats not already converted to usd...
  3. There is also the chance that one achievement glitches.... Seems to vary on the achievement, but majority of people have one not pop. A guy on TA wrote the devs and said they DON'T plan to fix it. (But never know what the future holds).
  4. Anyone know the games for Windows 10 that are on sale? And possibly Win 8 / Win Phone if any? These games are the hardest for me to find on the stupid Windows marketplace or xbox site... I typically have to go through and search each game to see if it's on sale =/ Unless they just haven't added the 'Black Friday' section to Windows marketplace yet.
  5. When looking on XB1, you do see your lifetime achievements. Just like when looking on xbox.com. Now, if you went to 360, you'd only see gs unlocked on everything pre-XB1. They use a different XBL architecture or something I think. Anyway, the difference is more, so it'd be due to the WP achievements I'm sure. Don't waste time worrying about it =p
  6. Well, if the guys pays you to change your GT. Then it's okay. Basically, you change your GT, freeing up the name he wants and then he changes his to the GT he's 'paying you for'. You don't really sell your account. I don't know if there's a waiting period on the GT being freed up though or if it can be taken right away...
  7. As for referrals, I think I've had that happen once.... I think someone on my friends list upgraded to XB1 from it. I typically try the referrals thing periodically. I don't think I've seen the referral for Gold to actually go through though. I also find it worth my time. Of course, it does depend on the person. It is geared highly towards digital content. They've had a long running $15 rebate on physical copies from MS store though which I've done for a lot of new games. It seems to be for people who are actively looking for deals. I mean, I know Amazon Prime members get 20% off new titles currently. This beats out that $15 rebate on physical copies for anything above standard editions. I also don't do EVERY 'mission' (or deal) that rewards has going on. I do the ones that have good returns. Since games go on sale, or drop in price, quickly these days....that initial savings is typically less. It all comes down to knowing the program, other deals, and personal preferences as to if this is for everybody or not. I use to frequent the forums and assist people with questions. A lot of people just don't read the FAQs at all it seems and think they're entitled to rewards 100% from the start. The fact is, unless you know the specific deals going on...you'll basically get rewards from purchases. On top of that, your rebates on purchases are scaled based on your 'Star' ranking which is based on how much you spend in the xbox marketplace. So, in the beginning...you get like 1% or 2% only (as a gold member).
  8. As of today (08/01/2016), I finished one playthrough and started a second on the same profile. Achievements seem to carry over for playthroughs. I missed the first 'tidy up' option in mission 2 the first go around. Second playtrhough, the final 'tidy up' achievement popped. I also popped the Medium Donkey (for four mistakes) on the second mistake during the second playthrough. **Edit** Did some testing for possibly choosing 'mistakes' (for donkey achievements) and quiting / restarting. Did not seem to work. At least stats carry over playthroughs (if you select the same profile on main menu).
  9. I saw a bundle with Halo 5 and Halo MCC for $55. I saw it under upcoming releases I think, but it had the price listed for purchase.... **Edit** It's under 'New Releases' actually and on sale for $55 (down from $110). When checking for this update, it came up as 'unavailable' - but then I closed the 'games' page and re-entered the 'new releases' and it now shows the price again. FYI in case people encounter an 'unavailable' for price.
  10. I read the Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is digital only - except in Japan... May be helpful to add for others. I know you can just import it, but for those who don't want to import / can't afford it, knowing that information might be useful. Up to mod / OP though! I figured I'd glance through and see what's all digital-only before this sale ends and didn't find that title on Gamefly's site, but didn't see it listed. So looked at the game's forums section and saw a post regarding all that info. Going to hold off though, since the DmC bundle is on sale and the other title has a physical copy here in the States. ...and sorry if it's been mentioned. I'm just checking quick before going to bed - which the sale will be done when I get up for work
  11. Was this actually released in US for 360? I can't find it anywhere.... Just want to verify before buying XB1 EU copy. Would rather buy 360 copy at the same time if that was EU release only as well. **Edit** Found it is PAL only in Easy Completions thread. Didn't se it notated in Stackable Games thread though.
  12. Just wondering if anyone else is getting the message indicating servers aren't available when doing community levels? Want to try and verify if it's me / a few people who experience it or everyone... Will try reaching out to support after work tomorrow morning most likely. **11/03/15 Update** I did e-mail support. They responded saying that there did seem to be an issue with their server (I only mentioned XB1 - not sure if it's cross platform or not). Their IT guy would have to look into it, but he is out of the office currently. **11/04/15 Update** Checked today and Community Levels are available again.
  13. The other two DLC are for Darksiders II as well. Those are not included in the Season Pass. If you weren't aware... or possibly already have them.
  14. There are actually 2 regions for XB1 - Region Free (NTSC/PAL?) & Chinese... Since the 360 games are region locked: I would assume that backwards compatibility would then work for Canada systems for NTSC and PAL games. Japanese games (J-NTSC) would most likely run on the XB1 Chinese region system. I'm not 100% sure though....hopefully someone can be more sure. I'm going based on the 'stackable gamerscore' thread. Might be more information in the 'backwards compatibility' thread though. Personally, I don't see region locked games becoming region free for backwards compatibility reasons. It'd mean having to make some games available multiple times since some have various versions for regions. Another note to consider though, is they actually have to add those games at some point. I haven't read too much into the backwards compatibility stuff though. I'm not sure if they plan to make all games available or just most. I know they were talking of adding a lot in the months to come.....
  15. If you liked the others, get it... The game was released for $40 with a season pass - which did not include the Awesome Level MAX dlc. So, for them to have ALL dlc included, listed at $40, and then discounted...I'd say it's worth it. I'm kind of urked, because I bought the game at launch and the Awesome Level MAX dlc is $10 dollars extra for me. Why can't they just reduce that dlc price as well for people like me!? Now I know why people get upset for supporting devs/pubs, buying on release, and then getting shafted pretty much.
  16. I'm just wondering if there's any way to get a db dump or game list to download...or if anyone knows where to find something of the sort? I'm trying to find games which gamefly no longer carries and the only game list I can find is on Wikipedia. I don't think that list is complete though. Looking for something in a single list (i.e. spreadsheet) so I can track it myself (i.e. owned, completed, etc). Thought I'd ask to see if something simple is available, or could be made available, instead of creating a spreadsheet myself and going through all the pages of games on the different achievement lists.
  17. Although I like EA Access...you do only get access to the games while you have that subscription. So you don't technically own them. Plus, not everyone has the EA access. I'm glad the wallet can breathe Shame they fixed the 'bug' where you got the 10% member discount on top of sale prices. Only got to use it on some DLC, but I don't plan to stop my sub since they bring new games often.
  18. Wow. 360 has Fable trilogy for $14.99.... Not too bad if any single title is needed - just use that to get it discounted /shrug. Not too impressed with these prices. Will probably grab the TTG season passes for Thrones and Borderlands along with the arcade games on 360. I'd prefer to see more titles on X1 that aren't remastered or released on 360 as well. Especially since backwards compatibility is a thing now, just seems like a waste. Perhaps that helped MS move towards it with the large number of remastered games heh.
  19. For anyone who has been looking for this, I found it at Wal-Mart Posting just because I've been looking for a month probably and every place seemed to be sold out. The link from the Bethseda site seems to be broken for Wal-Mart, so that may be why they have some still heh.... Last transaction for me said only 3 left
  20. The game needs to be running, so you could idle the game and then switch the input and play Netflix via 360 or smart tv. I've always used a wired controller though or plugged a wireless controller into the charge cable...I believe you won't get credit if the controller turns off.... Also, I haven't had any luck with XB1 games actually awarding the credits, only 360 games. Not sure if it's just me or if the rewards system doesn't track XB1 game times /shrug.
  21. D-pad also works....if you're having troubles with the joystick. I, for some reason, had issues flicking in a certain direction, so would alternate between flicking joystick and pressing d-pad. Finally got it though!
  22. It's what they've got so far.... I saw this a couple days ago and it looks like they're trying to use it for everything, not just video games. The video game portion is obviously more awesome to show off though. With Google backing them though, I'm thinking it's a branch off from those google glasses that failed. I wouldn't hold my breath for this though, it'd be something cool for games; however, wearables are a horrible fail and I'm sure it'd be very hard to justify the cost, as companies, for what they'd charge for the gear....
  23. The only bad thing about 'any game can come to [email protected]' is...XBL/console will probably see the influx of indie crap that's all over Steam. I just saw a video for Goat Simulator on Xbox One. Ugh. I really hope it doesn't come to what Steam is now....indie games as a non-stop torrent of spraying poo... I don't know what/if MS has a process in place for what can get released, but if it's essentially anything that can pay? We're screwed imo. People on Steam push this crap through just for a free cd key (i.e. vote the game to be released/greenlit on Steam) and then the devs somehow make money. Probably not so much from sales, since the games aren't worth it unless it's 90% off (practically free anyway), but moreso from the digital trading card/emoticons/backgrounds that steam and the devs sell (if devs decide to). This, in-turn, pays for release on other platforms. Sorry for the rant I'm just frustrated since I came back to XBL to get away from the Steam garbage.....and now it seems to follow /sigh
  24. Does/did Battfield games launch with a disc version of game + premium? Or do they just release the premium has a digital thing? I'd totally pre-order it, but I'm not buying the digital version for $120 ($107 currently on XB1). Especially when the content separate is $110.... I'll have to check EA Access too, last time I didn't see it available on there. I'll probably end up waiting for the premium stuff to go on sale if a disc version isn't available. Can't beat 25% off/rebate through the MS store/Rewards program.
