    PlayStation and Xbox online store specials

    After the below has been talked out, maybe this topic could be used to mention good deals etc on the stores?

    Soooo, is it just me doing a 'male look', or is the Xbox store really that sparse in terms of game discounts?

    Getting a little frustrated now, as the PS Store has craploads of discounted games every month/few weeks, and Xbox only usually has 'Deals with Gold' which sometimes aren't much to write home about. Not to mention that it isn't as user friendly/as well laid out as PS Store.

    Case in point, i have about six Xbox One games (two physical copies, three store bought) and probably well over 20 or 30 PS4 games?
    That doesn't come down to fanboyism, it's just that PS4 games get heavy discounts. Like at the mo Mad Max is down to $35 or so down from over $100 (not sure whether to buy it or not though, as it is 33.22gb), Lego The Movie The Game is $25 or so down from over $100 (both 70+% off) and there are a number of others that are 60% or so off. Bought Life Is Strange complete edition a couple of days ago (also discounted), recently bought Tales From the Borderlands (one of the funniest and most entertaining games i've ever played, even though i haven't properly played Borderlands before) and one or two others.

    I'm wanting to add to the library of Xbone games, but Microsoft ain't making it easy.

    And FYI, i can't remember the last time i payed full price for a game, blame PS Store for that.

    Well if you're a gold member,surely you'll have a large back catalogue due to the free games that offers, plus the backwards compatible 360 games each month now to.
    Sunset overdrive is this month's second Xbox one offering and it's a good fun game.
    It's funny,as on NZgamer,they complain about the PS plus games being pretty weak compared to the Games with gold.

    Yeah the PS+ offerings have been pretty weak in the last 12 months. Highlights have been Rocket League and BroForce, both of which are apparently good but I've only tried BroForce for about 10 minutes and never played Rocket League. Other than that it's just shitty side-scrolling shovelware.

    Sunset Overdrive? I hope that's the same free game here, that one looked fun.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    The remastered Saints IV/Re-elected was recently on sale on the storefront with all the DLC,think it was only $14au.
    Rather wierd and at times,confusing game.But good for a half hour muck around game.

    I've only had Gold for a few months and up until this month none of the free games have taken my fancy. Same as PS+ free games, only 'purchased' a couple of free ones this year (Bro Force, but haven't even downloaded it yet). I'm not really that into the new old platform/side scrolling rejuvenation thing.

    I dunno. Just seems like Playstation has cheaper discounted games. Then again i pretty much never go into physical stores (EB Games, JB HI-FI etc) to look for games as they always seem to cost too much.
    I thought about getting Saints Row for Xbone, but have played a demo of one of the newer ones, and maybe a bit of an older game and it wasn't my thing, prefer GTA with it's more realistic stance.

    Do the Xbox/Playstation store deals vary depending on what region you're in? I think they do, as months ago someone here said Mad Max was real cheap, but here it was still over $100 IIRC.

    Here's a pro-tip: even if you don't like the games, just add them to your library anyway. You never know!
