    “I’ve been waiting on a Loco Cycle sale!” Said nobody ever…

    • MURD3R HE WROTE

      “Look at the positive enlightening personality coming off this person, I bet they’d be a blast to be around.” Said nobody ever.

      That’s fun. Should do it more often.

        Oh look Angelo Lameberry using his powerful level of deduction on me, must be derived from the intricate humanistic tendencies only the joker could grasp.

        • Ross Kemp

          Wow , you got a coherent reference to both his name and avatar pic .
          Kudos to you I believe .

  • Komrad

    I wish that Deals with Gold let you choose between a physical disk or a download, I like to have physical copies of everything since it gives me a lot more flexibility as to what to do with the game if I don’t like it or get tired of it.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      microsoftstore(dot)com puts disc games on sale all the time. You just need to log in there to see those prices. I’ve picked up new releases after they been out for a month or two and saved me some major coin that way.

      • Komrad

        Are their sales in sync with Deals with Gold?

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Actually no they are not…least not that I have seen.

  • Axcalibur

    I was excited about the prospect of purchasing Family Guy for cheap – 83% off for a game that’s reportedly relatively short with limited replay value. Until I noticed the actual price, $10.19. Not terrible for a game – but keep in mind, that means there discounting the full $59.99 price! Which means that even though the game is 2 years old – they are still charging full price for it.

    Personally, I think game companies should follow a very simple pricing structure. Every year, reduce the games price $10. That’s not to say there would be no additional discounts throughout any given year – but those discounts would be based on the price of the game for that year – so in the case of Family Guy, it would be 83% off $39.99.

    Following my pricing structure, games 5 years or older would always be $10 – or they could reduce it once more to $5 on the 6th year and so all games 6 years or older are $5. This is especially important in the digital domain, where there is no such thing as a used game market, but there is a market for gamers looking for fun, older games for cheap.

    Alright, I’ve rambled on enough..

    • ImTheMetalLord

      I’m glad you are not running my gaming company. If I had a gaming company. What you are saying has no business merit to it whatsoever and doesn’t follow the “rules” of supply and demand one bit.

      But guess someone might of been listening to you. LOL They did reduce that game down to $9.99 for some reason. And just so you know I bought the game back in February of this year for $14.99 and this game is loaded with fun times and funny jokes and worth every penny that I spent on it. Point is this is a better deal than that.

      • Ross Kemp

        If it were priced at $60 , surely there would not be that much demand for it digitally when it could be picked up at 50% or less than that on physical .
        I just bought it too , been waiting a age for it to hit $10 ish .

        • ImTheMetalLord

          I agree on this game but he was saying every game should automatically be lowered every year and that is just a$$inine.

          You’ll enjoy the game. I couldn’t pass it up when it hit the $15 mark a few months back. For some reason this game was only on sale these 3 times and never saw any price drops. The first time it was on sale it was $30.

          Speaking of which they do seem to be more about price dropping newer games like Murder Soul Suspect just got a price drop to $30 today.

          • Ross Kemp

            Agreed .
            Regarding Murdered Soul , is that the XB1 version too at $30 ?
            Unable to check as I am away from PC and using a steam powered android at the moment .

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Nope the X1 is still at $50 and I was wrong the 360 dopped to $40 not $30. I was half asleep when I saw it on XBLDB earlier but I’ve had a cup of coffee now.

          • Ross Kemp

            I shall pass then .
            Thank you .

      • Axcalibur

        LOL, no merit eh? So, games continue to sell as well in the 2nd year and beyond at full price then they would with a permanent annual price reduction? This is why game companies have built up such a huge reliance on DLC, and why companies like EA have implemented a “rental” program like EA Access.

        My goal with my idea is to spur sales on a consistent basis by targeting consumers various pricing “sweet spots” on a annual basis – rather than forcing them to wait for seemingly random sales that may or may not include the game they want.

        Supply and Demand also has very little bearing on a primarily digital based economy – so don’t bother using that rhetoric with me.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Publishers can lower their prices anytime they want and it’s up to the publishers to determine when to do that. Maybe a publisher that keeps their price high will only sell 100 copies in the second year (I’m using an arbitrary number just for comparison) which would bring in $6k but if they were to lower it the $10 (as you are suggesting) they may still only sell 100 copies or lets sell they sell 10% more (again an arbitrary number) and sell 110 copies. They would only bring in $5500. Not smart business sense if you ask me.

          There has to be someone in their company that can crush those numbers with accurate forecasting to determine if and when the price should be lowered as apposed to your idea. THAT is all I’m saying.

          • Axcalibur

            I hear ya. But, it’s just as possible for the lower price point to spur an increase in sales.

            At any rate, until my purchase of Microsoft is finalized, I won’t be able to test my theory out. But when I do, I’ll keep you posted with the results :)

        more funnier than stick of truth? because if it is then i am so getting it

        • ImTheMetalLord

          I can’t answer that since I don’t have Stick of Truth nor have I even watch a video of it. Plan on getting it at some point and I don’t like to watch things on games I plan on getting. Don’t like to spoil anything.

          • cortez

            if you watch south park and like it then you definitely will love it. the game is like one their special 3-part episodes and also a giant swag bag full of easter eggs from every single south park season. its a game with a lot of “i cannot believe they got away with that in a video game and i liked it moment”. as a matter of fact i still cannot believe it had an Australian release. its a really funny game that would hold you for a week or maybe less if you start it on a weekend.

  • Thomas Gilmore

    So, anyone know why the expansion The Missing Link for Deus Ex is on sale?

    • ImTheMetalLord

      I don’t believe that is a “sale”, it looks more like a price drop. They do that from time to time on things.

  • CoD Master

    Hey guys it seems Family Guy Back to Multiverse got a more reduced price than the original one. Its 2% more off, they made it suitable for people who get a a 10 buck card to purchase the game, but it seems its US only.

  • cortez

    just saw Murdered soul suspect price drop to 20% on xbldb and have got to say, just like thief it has received not-so-good reviews but their prices have still remained high on amazon and are not dropping even remotely as low as other best-selling games
    after 3 months of release like battlefield 4 and watch dogs. can someone tell me how to use vgchartz to determine when game prices might drop.
