Dammit if the Goat Simulator DLC is only discounted on 360 and not on XB1 I will be angry.

Might pick up Wolfenstein. Hard to justify some of the other buys when I have some GwG stuff I could dig into, but some solid deals.

Just:

Abzu
Silence
Walking Dead Season 3 (that's what New Frontier is right?)

For me. But that's damn good.

So for those interested, these are the titles from the above mentioned Xbox 360 list that are not available on Xbox One BC (Edit- and also don't have a port/remaster available either):

Call Of Duty: Black Ops II
Crackdown
Fable Anniversary
Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Hitman: Blood Money
Kane And Lynch: Dead Men

Have a feeling we will be seeing these soon, especially Crackdown and Fable since they are first-party releases, and its worth mentioning Black Ops 2 is probably the most requested BC game to date.

Slightly off topic: Why Fable Anniversary might just now be playable on the Xbox One will forever be a mystery to me.

Those sales price are not low at all...

Here in France you find, retail: Gears 4 29€, Gears 4 Ultimate 49€, Halo Wars 2 29€, Halo Wars 2 Ultimate 39€ (yes)... Doom is 15€ too, etc etc.

I want to buy digital on XO, I really want it, but damn... Well maybe I'll pick some of the ones that are really on sales. :)

There is still a lot of DLC and F2P stuff on sale but that'll take me a long time to process so keep checking back or if you are looking for something it might be on sale but not in the OP yet.

As soon as I think about getting The Division, it goes on sale, but only as part of a bundle with Siege. Maybe next time.

Black Ops 2 hasn't had it's season pass on sale in about a year and a half and not only that it got a permanent price drop. It's also the only game in the series for the 360 on sale... I might be reading to much into it but... maybe?

Prices for 360 games aren't high but for a sale I expected lower. Is it always like this? I paid 10 dollars on many ps4 games on sale, games that were maybe 2 years old... How can MS want 10 for games that are almost 10 years?

I guess it depends on the publisher. There's some cheap stuff on sale like the Metro games, Just Cause 2, Catherine ($3 is insane for that one particularly) Witcher 2 and Risen.

Indeed. Bully is cheap(7.50$), but RDR for 15$!? Come on!

Rockstar increases the prices of all their games once they become BC. I got RDR for $7.50 and Bully for $3.75 digitally last year.

San Andreas no longer goes on sale for $3.75 any more, so it could be BC soon.

How does Bioshock Collection run? I'd heard some problems with jank in the PC version, but I've been curious about going back to the original and Infinite.

Edit: Eff it, decided to go for it along with Diablo 3. A man is entitled to the sweat of his brow and the drops of his loot.

I'll probably pick up Crackdown and maybe Crackdown 2 since those will probably get BC once the new one comes out (that's my assumption at least).

I wish the Sunset Overdrive season pass would go on sale, but the Deluxe Edition is cheaper than it, so maybe I'll just go with that and sell my physical copy.
Dead Rising 2: Case Zero is Backward Compatible.

I wasn't aware of that! It's the only Dead Rising game I was ever able to really get into so that'll be great to have on my XB1.

I'll bite on the Ultimate Alliance bundle for $30, since that's what it should have been priced at all along...

How does the 360 version of South Park: The Stick of Truth compare to the native XB1 version? I don't own either but I'm super keen.

Disappointed to see Diablo III (UK) at a higher price point than it's sale price from earlier this year.

Is ScreamRide worth $7.50?

My daughters both loved the demo...and still play it at random.

If they're playing it, go for it. It's more of the same, but there's enough there to justify the $7.50 price tag.

How does the 360 version of South Park: The Stick of Truth compare to the native XB1 version? I don't own either but I'm super keen.

That game is never going to be a graphical beast, but the Xbox 360 was very clean. You're not missing out on anything graphically if you go for that version over the Xbox One version. It runs absolutely fine too.

Destiny collection for $30, been going back and forth of wanting to grab this just didn't know if it's to late or I should bother with the new one coming this year. I do plan on getting destiny 2 so this might be a good warm up, might do it at that price.

Wtf, when did Awesomenauts come to Xbone?

Think I'm getting that, the Borderlands Handsome Collection, and maybe State of Decay.

Why are some of the same games during holiday sales cheaper on PSN than XBL? Batman Arkham Knight is £9.99 for PS4 whilst £15 on XBL?? There was a few examples of this during Christmas too, their sales team or whoever is in charge of this are shit.
