Why only Steam and why limited time only? :(

I know, I would have loved for these to come to consoles as well

Is that noteably cheap? It looks like it is , but i am a bit out of the loop with pricing since buying 3 years of membership just over a year ago. Now i have less than 2 years left i'm starting to get anxiety though :?

I think so, I'm out of the loop as well. I think the best deal in recent months was 6 months for £30 so this is a bit above that.

Thanks. Might wait and see what is offered closer to Black Friday. Even so, thats a better deal than the disocunt on Game Pass that is included with new Series X/S purchases. If i was anywhere near the end of my membership i would go for it!

That offer where you get Gold and Gamepass Ultimate for £40+£1 is still on right? Is it only for your first 3 years of Gamepass or something?

I think that's correct, that's what I'm planning to use next month.

Yeah, you can't exceed 36 months. After that you have to pay whatever competitive price you can find for GPU, that or you resub with just Game Pass (not Ultimate) at the end of your term for the lower price that is typically on offer for. I think you lose some sort of years of continuous memebership badge or something though if you do that.

If you downgrade from GPU to just GP, you need to buy XBL separately if you want to play online.

Also, CDKeys price now £19.99 for 3 months. Still bought as cheaper than normal

Have 2 £10 Epic Store vouchers so use one on Shenmue 3 Deluxe Edition which is currently on sale for £19.71 so with the voucher came to £9.71 which is a bargain. Hopefully the save file from my, ahem, high seas copy still works...

This is probably a stupid question but this 'EU' Xbox live card is still going to work for us to upgrade to Gamepass right?

Yes, there’s no UK-specific version for Gold subs cards, so that’s the one you want.

If you fancy something similar to Theme Park World on PS2 (which also came out in the launch window) Planet Coaster on PlayStation 5 is £31.95 at CoolShop: https://www.coolshop.co.uk/product/plan ... er/235XC7/
