    • Just a few mentions/corrections for the list:

      • Mortal Kombat X is in Game Pass, not XL, so you won't get any DLC characters with Game Pass.
      • Oxenfree is in Gamepass. At least, last I checked.
      • Someone will need to double check this one, but I think I remember that it was only Shadow Warrior (1) in Game Pass, not Shadow Warrior 2.
      • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is in Game Pass.
      • Zombie Army Trilogy is also in Game Pass.

      Anyway, awesome work on the list. Interesting to see how many of these games keep repeatedly going on sale. Thank goodness I didn't move on some of them earlier as their deals are cheaper now, like Burnout and Unravel bundle ($10 and $20 before). The eternal RFD question is how long is it reasonable to keep on waiting for potentially lower prices in the future? While some other deal prices won't budge (No Man's Sky, grrr).

      Thanks for the notifications. Actually, Shadow Warrior 2 was just added to game pass today. And I'm not seeing Tomb Raider Definitive Edition in game pass. Rise of the Tomb Raider is in there though. Maybe that's what you were thinking of.

      Oh, the second game was just added? Nifty. Thanks for the heads up. And yes, I think you're right about Tomb Raider. Sorry, I mixed them up. Unsure if it's the 20 year Celebration one or not.

    • Assassin's Creed Odyssey will be $29.99 on Dec 24 at Best Buy. Cheaper than the digital version here.

    • New to xbox so not too familiar with game pricing, but from what I can tell sites like cd keys seems to be always undercutting these prices which makes me wonder if there is any benefit to purchasing through Microsoft, even during these deals.

      I would say there is some benefit as a lot of these games can't be found on CD Keys. CD Keys has tons of PC games, but I find they're limited when it comes to console choices. You also have the option of supporting the developers by buying their products directly. I think of CD Keys as a second hand store where you'll sometimes find better deals, but their selection is less diverse.

      Because someone put in the effort to share this sale. Also, people may not have had the system or wanted that specific game when they were on sale previously.

      I'm upvoting the OP for his effort. Better than some of the other BD threads where people have just put a link - I could have googled that.

      Damn, i got this for $50 E3 promo, then returned to wal mart and got for $40 with battlefield promo a few weeks ago. Wish i held out a bit more for $30, but j guess i still got to play it for over a month before this deal. For what its worth, this game is pretty good if you are a BF fan. All this nonsense about women in the game, just go to your character and change any women medic to a male medic and save. My only gripe is the graphics dont look any better than BF1, and with apparent texture pop in on some maps, id argue worse than BF1. Gameplay is still fun
