Yes.


:lol:

I mean on the older retail games, the RRP is still like £40 for them so 75% off makes them a tenner. Which is still a lot of cash to drop on Call Of Duty: World At War, for example.

Obviously 75% off some stuff is great. If you've never played Ikaruga, and you don't buy it at £1.68 then frankly we can't be friends.

Ha, yeah I kinda knew what you meant. Like when I see 30% off Battlefield 1, but it's still £40.

Moggy :x

Catherine doesn't actually seem to be in the offer in the UK despite being in Nelson's big list of discounts. Microsoft are racists: CONFIRMED.

If anyone wants the prices on the BC sale (it's a nightmare to browse on the Xbox storefront), there's a nicely organised link in TrueAchievements that allows you to sort by region.

Picked up Left 4 Dead, Rainbow 6 Vegas and DR2 Case West just because they are so cheap!

I've got a bigger collection of 360 games now than when I had the actual console.

The Call of Duty games are still too pricey for me to bite otherwise I'd have got a few of them.

I will pick up the Sam and Max games for £1.99 each and may even be persuaded to spend £20 or so on various £1 and £2 games. My price point has been met at last!

We are excited to introduce Arena on Xbox Live to the broader community for Killer Instinct! Also arriving with this month’s update are overlays for Party Chat, Wi-Fi Captive Portal, and Looking for Group improvements; and be on the lookout for an app from Dolby Atmos in the coming weeks! These features were all previously available for Xbox Insiders for testing and feedback, and are now ready for the broader community. Keep the feedback coming!

Here’s more about the new features beginning to roll out today:

Arena on Xbox Live Tournaments for Killer Instinct

Launching today on your Xbox One, you’ll find a new tab labeled ‘Tournaments’ in the Game Hub. Within this tab, you’ll be able to see upcoming tournaments you can register for directly on your Xbox One dashboard for Killer Instinct.

When it’s time to check in for your tournament, you’ll receive a notification directly on your console, or through the Xbox app on your Windows 10, iOS or Android device. You can then easily join your tournament, launching directly into your game from your Xbox One or Xbox app on Windows 10 PCs – and be ready to fight for glory, honor, and prizes.

Gamer-Created Tournaments come to Arena on Xbox Live
Also launching to your Xbox One, are the first ever gamer-created tournaments through Arena for Killer Instinct. You will be able to create tournaments for your Xbox Live Club in the Xbox app on Windows 10 PCs. Simply go to a Club page for a Club in which you are an owner or admin (or create a Club just for your tournaments!) and navigate to the ‘Tournaments’ tab. There you’ll see an option to create a tournament – set the date and time, tweak settings, and enter a description – and a few clicks later you have your very own tournament scheduled! Be sure to advertise your tournament to your Club’s Activity Feed to recruit players and hope you can stay friends even after you take first place.

Looking for Group Posting Notification
We’ve made posting in Looking for Group (LFG) to game with others even easier. With LFG notifications, you can be notified when anyone you follow creates an LFG post. Since the feature was first released last fall, gamers have created over 15 million posts! Want to let more people know about an LFG post? Now you also can share it to an Activity Feed or in a message.

Clubs on Xbox Live and Beam Integration
Clubs on Xbox Live now helps streamers and their followers find each other. The new ’Beam’ tab added to Clubs shows all Beam broadcasts from Club members, and new controls let Club owners filter broadcasts based on games and stream maturity rating.

Party Overlay Updates
It is now more simple to stay connected with your Party, which is why you now have the option to overlay the speaking Party members’ names – even when the Guide isn’t showing. Controls let you change the overlay’s position and transparency.

Dolby Atmos App
Following its April debut for Windows 10 PCs, the Dolby Access app will be available soon on your Xbox One and Xbox One S. This app enables Dolby Atmos audio, creating sound that flows around you, even overhead, through Dolby Atmos enabled AVRs and sound bars. With an additional store purchase, Dolby Atmos for Headphone enables this same immersive experience on almost any set of headphones.

The experience delivers breakthrough audio that takes you deeper inside your favorite games, movies, and TV shows. For gamers, a robust slate of native Dolby Atmos titles are coming to Xbox One later this year. Additionally, the upmixing capabilities of Dolby Atmos will create a more immersive audio experience for your existing multichannel games.

Thanks to your invaluable feedback, we continue to make improvements and updates. There will be more updates over the coming months; we plan to build and expand Arena on Xbox Live in both the Arena experience and participating titles. Please keep your feedback coming and stay tuned for more.

It's been on offer fairly recently at a bigger discount (£2-something), so might be worth holding off if you're not desperate

Edit- £2.24 twice this year

(And showing as 75% off for me on the MS site)

Edit 2- Ooh, what is this Bomberman Battlefest @ £1.68? Looks interesting :toot:

1. Home
2. Settings
3. All Settings
4. Display & Sound
5. Audio output
6. Under Headset Audio/Headset format select "Windows Sonic for Headphones" then enable "use virtual surround sound."
7. If a game supports it change the sound output to 7.1 or 5.1

The “Turn on 7.1 virtual surround sound” (Windows) or “Use virtual surround in apps” (Xbox) checkbox allows all existing applications that were capable of rendering to 5.1 or 7.1 channel formats to now treat headphones as a virtual 7.1 device. Content that previously would have only been heard in multichannel via a multichannel home theater, and which would have utilized a linear downmix over headphones, can now be virtualized (using the format specified in the dropdown) and heard over any pair of stereo headphones.

I don't suppose anyone is having trouble with updates?

I just downloaded the Tomb Raider gold game in seconds but next up is a game update I want to play and it's going at 68Kbs

No Lego game has online multiplayer to my knowledge. Bar Lego Worlds.

Go check. Maybe it does, but all the ones I played have only had local multiplayer. Maybe this is the only one to have it?

To by recollection LEGO Star Wars The Complete Saga was the only one with online co-op? I could check co-optimus, but can't be arsed. I played it for a bit the other night and could not find an obvious way to look online for a game. Knowing the LEGO games it will be some not that obvious bit in the central hub that launches it.

Protecting their brand i expect. One news story about kids being harassed/groomed through a lego game and they're reputation is in the bin; the same reason they preemptively killed their lego mmo a few years ago.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Didn't they kill that because it was costing them too much money to police all the cocks being made in it?
