  • loststar

    I see it’s already mentioned below but I’ll say it anyway to help it get noticed. UK Thief is priced at £27.99 which is not half of £49.99.

    • fwdkiller

      27.99 with tax it is lol i don’t know how UK people get there education.

      • Gazza!!!

        Tax is included already so 50% off £49.99 including tax isn’t £27.99. No need for an education to know that.

        • fwdkiller

          You guys are complaining about 3 dollar differents in price. 24.99+24.99=49.98 or 27.99+27.99= 55.98 so there isn’t much of a different and thats not includeing taxe. I think you guys can’t afford the squids to buy the game.

          • loststar

            £3 pounds not dollars. The point is you can’t advertise something as 50% off when it isn’t, be it a game or a tin of baked beans. Once again our price of £49.99 includes VAT and 50% off is £24.99 including VAT. I’m not really sure why you are even arguing this, it doesn’t even affect you.

          • http://www.twistedbarrelale.co.uk/ Chris Cooper

            seriously come back after you’ve finished your own education.
            Here in the UK, we don’t accept being told one thing and being given something else.

            £6 isn’t a lot when you are talking about spending £50 on 2 discounted games that would have cost you over £100, but the point is if MS said 50% off, not 44% off! I’m not being ripped off!

      • Nemo

        Thats now how tax works in the UK, the price should be £24.99 with vat.

      • loststar

        Tax is included at £49.99 so 50% off including tax is £24.99 but thanks for attempting to insult me and UK people in general. Do you have the same attitude problem when you’re not on the internet?

      • Ismokedthebanditwithaheadshot

        There education!? lmao.

    • Nick King

      I was just going to post the same about Thief, was £49.99 now £27.99, not sure how much Tomb Raider was yesterday but that is now £23.99.

  • Rotmm

    Yet another UK XboxOne’er who is confused at how 50% of £50 is £28 and 50% of £45 is £24.
    I can only assume it’s the result of a modern education.

    • fwdkiller

      You know its still cheaper than us dollars lol why complain .i buy steam global keys in gbp € its cheaper.

      • loststar

        £28 is around $46, how is that cheaper?

        • fwdkiller

          So u rather pay full price than ? I bought thief for 11 bucks €3.00.

          • loststar

            You stated we in the UK are paying less than in the US. That is not true and I even roughly converted the price for you. How is that saying I’d rather pay full price? I get the impression you just like to argue about anything even if it means making a fool of yourself, which incidentally you’re doing rather well.

  • Gazza!!!

    The same cost issue happened with Ryse but was changed a day later, will hold off for now and see if they amend it.

  • Wes Tar

    The xbox team were so close to doing something good.. but to make a few more pounds, you had to take 45% off instead of 50. This means, once again, the ps guys get these two games cheaper than us. I had fully intended on purchasing both tomb raider and thief on the xbox one.. but now, out of principle, I will leave both. Congrats, guys, you’ve just lost £45 from one customer, and I think there will be more just like me..

    • JB

      EXACTLY what I was going to say

      • ImTheMetalLord

        It’s been fixed and now the proper pricing is showing.

    • smber2c

      Kinda dramatic isn’t it? Not buying “out of principle”? So their sale isn’t as good as Sony’s and thus you won’t be buying a game that you apparently think will be fun and want to play otherwise? If Sony’s prices were $4 higher would you be happily paying exactly what Microsoft is charging?

      Falling into treating game sales like United Nations negotiations is something I see lots of gamers do these days & I can’t see how it doesn’t sap a lot of the fun out of the hobby. It’s obviously your money & time, so of course do as you like; but I hope you aren’t letting your video game sales principles keep you from enjoying your video game playing.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Nicely put. Playing video games is a hobby and all about the fun. Over a few pounds or whatever these things are called they use is ridiculous. We have a generation of spoiled people and I’m scared for what will happen to these people when they finally grow up.

        • Jeremy Filth

          Honestly the extra few$$ is not even the issue, it’s the fact that they get away lying to their consumer base.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            I’m sure it was an honest mistake due to the fact that it’s fixed now. Less than 15 hours after it went up for the wrong price. Not bad IMO.

            He stated as a matter of principle and had he went and purchased it at the price they were asking last night and then called customer service and let them know they corrected the issue the company would have took care of him. But not now that he may never look again and see it’s fix he deprived himself from having fun. Over a few bucks? Don’t make sense to me.

      • kevgallacher

        I kind of Agree with him though, it’s not as advertised.
        It is illegal to advertise something as 50% off when it is only 44% off.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          It was an honest mistake and it’s been fixed.

          Could have made the purchase already and been playing and then just call customer service for the difference back. But instead he chose to make a big deal on the blog about it and be all dramatic about the principles.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      They made the proper adjustments.

  • fwdkiller

    Xbone fanboys seem to amaze me everyday keep hanging on to that 720p vcr. And if your wonderin i do not sit in front of my pc i have it hook to my 55 inch samsing with x360 controller in full 1080p on ultra what can xbox 720p do ?. It can barely hit medium settings in 720p lol.

    • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

      No we couldn’t careless about what you have in your parents basement but we are amazed at your spelling and grammar.

      • fwdkiller

        Obviously you by commenting.

        • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

          Your reply makes no sense but keep trying. Why are you even here? shouldn’t you be playing on your 55″ samsing tv lol

          • fwdkiller

            Its called typeing on a phone people do make spelling mistake u nazi.i didn’t know your mother raised a anal person lol.

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

            At least a mother raised me as it seems animals brought you up!

          • fwdkiller

            Ask your mom how was her butt after you were born.she must not like anal anymore lmao.

          • loststar

            Seriously is your phone a Nokia 3210 or something? Phones these days correct your spelling you know. You should get one. I thought you’d already have something really new and big to go with your TV. What size was that again I think you only told us twice already?

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

            HAHA

          • fwdkiller

            Yeah you need auto spelling , i don’t use it so go figure.

          • loststar

            Why is that, do you need help switching it on?

          • fwdkiller

            Do you? I can help you.

          • loststar

            I very much doubt there is anything you could help me with, but I will congratulate you on winning the star prize for the weakest come back ever. It’s a Speak & Spell, remember them? You should get some good use out of it or if not you could sell it. Might be a collectors item by now.

          • fwdkiller

            Did u want a cookie? For finding that misspelled word.

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

            Do you want attention as thats the only reason your here, poor little baby.

          • fwdkiller

            Poor boy haha u can’t even get on my level lol pretty sad u gotta comment with a weak comback.

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

            Oh yeah your level of a 55″ samsing tv is just out of this world.

          • fwdkiller

            Who says i was talking about my tv lol i don’t think your mother on ssi could afford what i have buddy.

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

            Your the one that can only afford a 55″ tv but keep posting your comments as in the real world you would end up in hospital. Im done with this looser and off to play my xbox.

          • EldritchWarlord

            That’s a bad idea, anyone with at least half a brain would become obese in weeks if they got a cookie for spotting spelling mistakes in your posts. Mere days if we also got a cookie for spotting grammar errors and non sequiturs!

    • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

      You also stated in another post that you own an xbox one with 17 digital download games. That right there is a fanboy and your comment attacks yourself. Your just a massive FAIL.

      • Gazza!!!

        He has also said he sold his x1 for a ps4, he is one hungry troll.

        • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

          haha i guess we better stop feeding the troll

          • Gazza!!!

            Best off ignoring him. His story changes depending on which way the wind blows.

          • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

            Good advice Gazza as i sense the troll is very hungry and won’t stop as he is thriving on the attention.

        • fwdkiller

          I did sell it lol

      • fwdkiller

        First of all anal boy i sold my xbox one how can i fail on myself you seem to know alot for a kid who came out of a buthole lol if u notice i play pc and no longer on xbox.

        • Digiadam

          Bugger off mate. Keep your opinions to yourself unless they benefit someone.

          I call for a vote to ban this user from here.

  • Pinkeye69

    Currently argusing with Xbox Support over the discount amount. The PS4 is advertising Thief and Tomb Raider as 50% off same as the Xbox One and their store is showing £49.99 down to £24.99 and £44.99 down to £22.49 respectively, yet the UK xbox store is showing Thief as £27.99 and Tomb Raider at £24.99, and the answer I get is “prices vary by region”. Same happened with Ryse last month, the UK discounted price was wrong and was corrected, and with marketplace content when the switch was made from MSP to currency

    • Nick King

      Ref: 1240583157 – I’ve already had that discussion :-) They said they’d action it at their side but asked me to tweet Major Nelson as well (I don’t have Twitter).

    • ImTheMetalLord

      It’s been corrected.

  • DerpieDutch

    Off topic about Games with Gold.
    Ok, Aprils PS Plus line-up is not that great.
    You can beat em this time MS. This is your month to shine.
    Good luck.

  • kevgallacher

    Thief is more like 44% off, not 50%.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      They fixed it for ya.

  • loststar

    Regarding the Xbox One UK prices being wrong, I just spoke to support and this was the outcome:

    I just talked to my manager and we’ve personally sent a feedback on this to our higher department so that they’ll become aware of this issue.
    Also, we’d like to request you to contact the game developer as well so that they’ll know that you have personally encountered the difference in discounted pricing. You can also provide the reference number to them.

    I pointed out the same offer is also available on PS4 but priced correctly. I’ll use the link they provided to contact the developer now and hopefully it will be corrected.

    • Nick King

      Let us know the outcome, I want to buy Thief but out of principle I’m not paying £27.99, yes it’s only £3.00 but that’s not the point. It’s false advertising.

      • loststar

        I will. Thief is what I’m after as well and I know it’s not a lot more than it should be but I’m going to wait and see if they fix it first.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          All has been fixed.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        They fixed it.

      • loststar

        Now reduced to £24.79 :) Thief that is on Xbox One

    • Gazza!!!

      When we had the pricing issue with Ryse I contacted Mike Ybarra on Twitter. Done the same for this sale. Hopefully we can all get the message across and come tomorrow the prices will be what we were expecting.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      It’s fixed.

  • GTTomb

    Just had a look, price for thief now down to £24.79 and tomb raider is £22.39

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Good to hear that they got on it rather quickly. Thanks for the post with that info.

      • Rupert Oldcorn

        Hmm, what happens if you already bought them at the incorrect price, is there a process for getting the difference repaid?

  • Bat

    Is this the price through the xbox dashboard? I dont see the price difference in the link given.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      You don’t see the before and after….the prices on them are the after accept for the Gold offers on the Bioshock games.

  • loststar

    UK prices for Tomb Raider and Thief are now correctly priced with 50% off

    • ImTheMetalLord

      You’re like 2 hours late with this announcement.

      • loststar

        Sorry my browser hadn’t loaded the new comments and I only just checked. Maybe I won’t bother next time.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          No biggie just saying. And I’m not taking credit for it. That belongs to GTTomb.

  • itsjustme

    The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, NBA 2K14, Thief, and CoD: Ghosts are NOT advertised AT ALL on the Xbox 360 dashboard as being on sale. No expiration dates are given. It would be nice to see this information provided on the dashboard. I have missed game sales in the past because of this. The sales posted on Major Nelson’s blog don’t always show up on the dashboard. Why?

    • ImTheMetalLord

      *Discounts on these games are valid from 28 March 2014 through 30 March 2014.

      Just like other sales don’t always show up with other companies. Sometimes you have to know where to look (here on this blog for instance) and how to find the sales. Brick and motor companies have sales everyday that they don’t advertise but when you go in their store you find them. Or word of mouth or many other ways.

      I find it cool to be on the cutting edge. Not only on this site but there are others as well that will give you glimpses of what may be on sale but not advertised otherwise. I have mentioned one place for that in a previous post.

  • KingHippoz

    Why is ghost 24.99 if I have it shipped to my home and to download it digitally it’s full price still?

  • Ross Kemp

    Help please . My 360 HDD is full to capacity .
    Is it possible to plug a external HDD like a Western Digital 1TB , and move /copy games to this as storage only – not to be played from .
    I am just thinking of saving time having to keep re downloading games .

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Someone had mentioned that there is a way to save them on your computer but when I asked them how they never responded. I too have the same issue.

      • Some guy

        Never tried myself but I belive Horizon let you extract stuff from your external storage so you can keep it(Only used it for offline updates). You’d need to put it back on your storage after if you want to use it.

    • Catalyst

      I bought a cheap 120gb 360 harddrive, and have simply been using the old hard drive transfer cable to move stuff back and forth.

    • Axcalibur

      This definitely seems like a missed opportunity for Microsoft. Not sure if it’s a lack of competence at Microsoft or a fear of piracy – but not giving us flexibility in storage options is definitely not a smart move.

      My Wii U has a 3tb external drive attached – no issues, and all the games run off it without a hitch.

      My PS3 could potentially be expanded using a laptop hdd – I haven’t done this yet.

      If my Xbox 360 (or if the Xbone) gave us hdd flexibility, I’d be more inclined to purchase more digital games. This cuts out the middle man and leads to more profit for developers and Microsoft. It offers more convenience for me. It’s win-win.

  • Axcalibur

    Nice to see these deals – but I’m going to wait.
    I imagine the Bioshock Infinite season pass ($20) will be on sale sometime in the next few months – I’ll wait for that.

    Walking Dead got terrible reviews, but as a fan of the show, I still want to give it a go – but I’ll wait until it’s below $10.

    Thief – ugh… as a huge fan of the original trilogy, I can’t be bothered even trying this “re-imagining”, especially since so many critics (that actually played the original games) are panning it as a terrible remake. I imagine it’ll be a bargain bin game pretty soon and maybe I’ll give it a go then. Just hard to justify supporting the dev with any of my cash after they spit in the face of fans by trying to appeal to a new generation of gamers who can’t be bothered with playing older games. If you’re reading this and have not played the original Thief (and want to play the best stealth game ever made) then go download it on Steam (or wherever). The graphics are dated but the gameplay is still solid!

    • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

      Why not play it and have your own opinion instead of assuming what paid critics say. I personally really liked the game and yes it has its faults but still a good game.

      • Axcalibur

        Have you played the original? If so, how does it compare? If not, you’re missing out on a solid gaming experience and missing the point of my post. I’m not playing it to spite the developers who choose to ignore fans of the original.

        Will me not purchasing it have any impact at all? Maybe not – but the game is now discounted a month after coming out (which is pretty quick), the reviews have been poor (as I noted before) and the publisher mentioned it was disappointed with the sales. So, I’m not giving them $60 for it. And I’m not giving them $30 this weekend for it.
        And besides, if any developer is really confident in their game, they’ll offer a game demo.

        • http://www.youtube.com/SabzilaTV SabzilaTV

          I tried an old thief briefly back in the day but dont have much memory from it. Yes, an early discount is a bad sign and so are the bad reviews. Due to that i hesitated in buying it but since not much else is available i gave it a shot. Im glad i did and finished it 100%. The game is kind of broken and unpolished but if you can look past that its great. When its dirt cheap u should give it a go and i would be curious what u think of it.

          • Nick King

            I bought it as well once they’d sorted the 50% discount out properly and I kind of like it. Never experienced the earlier versions so I can’t compare. I’ll certainly look at finishing it 100% (our of interest how long did it take you?).
