Anyone take advantage of the Black Friday offers that went live over the weekend for those with Gold?

 

Spent something like $200 on a bunch of games, couldn't pass up on getting Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 Deluxe editions for $126 (almost like buy one get one free)

 

Few other games I have my eye on, and waiting to see if some others (like Forza Horizon 3) are added in coming days

I'm just going to leave this here :-P

 

 





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Just got FH3 via the Singapore store - $45SGD (cost me $52NZ to get a $50SGD Xbox gift card)

 

This sale is going to send me to the poor house, but I'll have lots of new games to play in the process

Titanfall 2 worth playing?

 

First was shocking.

Podcasts I listen to have been raving about it. Single Player campaign is quirky but fun - multiplayer fast and fun.

 

PC multiplayer numbers unclear.

I'm new to the Xbox One. Is there a way to browse the store on a PC or mobile?

From this link http://www.xbox.com/en-NZ/games/xbox-one?xr=shellnav, browse the Xbox Store

 

Change the en-NZ to en-US to browse the USA version of the store

Interested in buying Forza Horizon 3 from the US store. Are there any pitfalls I should be aware of (Geo location, US account required etc)? It's a fair bit cheaper than the NZ store.

I liked the first titanfall.. the second one is great too.  very fast graphics and action etc.  love some of the new weapons/accessories like the grappling hook.

I wish MS had the Digital version for PC on sale. I hate travelling to buy content from discs now. Amazon had it for $28 USD last night physical box.

Purchase digital giftcards for the amount required via the microsoft store, pay with Paypal and make sure your address is in a tax free state (I use my YouShop address in Portland)

 

Add giftcard to your account (changing region if prompted to)

 

Then use giftcard balance to purchase game from the Xbox USA store.

 

 

 

I did this all via Edge as Chrome had a few issues
