Heat.
If you're just starting with this, I highly recommend you ask your friends if they've any throwaway weapons with reduced level requirements - makes mincemeat of the opposition for hours :D

So can you no longer buy Ultimate Evil Edition on its own anymore? Been waiting for that to drop in price for a while and not that fussed about buying Eternal Collection just for the Necromancer addon.
Yeah I think its gone. Seems to be the trend for blizzard to pull the original editions to artificially keep the price high.
You cant get the original 360 diablo digitally anymore either.
You would have to get a disk copy.

Maybe you should clarify that it's free to play and not free to own.
\x0d\x0aI would have said that was obvious... everyone that owns an xbox and pays for live would know the deal with free weekends.... \x0d\x0aId agree if my Aunt Doris was reading it she might feel mislead or confused but she isnt into Diablo.... she is more of a dark souls lass...
\x0d\x0a\x0d\x0aNope, I agree it needs clarifying. I own an Xbox One but don't generally use Live. This initially made me think the game was free.
I checked with my Aunt Doris and she said she understood from the blurb underneath and I quote...
"Millennials should learn to read more than just the headline/heading...."
and then mutter something about blame twitter and attention span no longer than 140 characters...
I personally think she is being harsh...
but maybe she has a point...
I know your Aunt.
She does have a point.
Makes a top breakfast n'all!!!:{

Everyone knows my aunt.... Doris gets about...
Cba with RPGs tbh!

Scandalous the price of xb1 wireless controllers! Ive stick drift with second and am keeping an eye out for a new one
I had stick drift. There's a few vids on youtube. You open it up and remove a small bit of grey plastic. Stops the drift. Wasn't very difficult and I have sausage fingers. Just need a small flathead screwdriver.
And the performance is perfect now?
I'd imagine it would be a short term fix and difficult to reach the exact manufacturer's specifications on the axes.
Many people have said the repair attempt has made their pad worse and they wished they left it with a mild drift where it was somewhat useful still.
It goes from my character walking on their own to not. This is an improvement for me.
The 2nd vid after the one I linked goes down the new module route but I kinda figured if the person I was replying to was confident with soldering irons and buying new parts he wouldn't be sat there with stick drift would he?
Maybe he didn't know that it was a serviceable part and an option?
It could've easily been an integrated part of the motherboard. By the time you've faffed doing the adjustment method to a satisfactory standard it may well have been quicker and longer lasting to swap out the module.
Well like I said the vid does mention the replacement option too and that vid follows on from the 'flick the grey bit out with a screwdriver method'.

I'm not going to disagree repairing it always going to be better if you can be bothered and have the skills and tools.

I can only quote my own experience that the stick feels a tiny, tiny bit loose in the neutral position but it doesn't impede it's use for me. :p

You able to send a link for one of those videos? Would really appreciate it. I keep seeing the ones for using alcohol to clean around the stick but dont really fancy trying that. I have 2 controllers, one drifts forward constantly so unplayable and the one I have only had for about 6 months drifts to the left now and again, really annoying!
Forget all that rubbish. If you really want to fix it then buy new thumbstick modules and a soldering iron.
Desolder the old modules and put new ones in. (Though you'll struggle to get one s models with the 33% improved resistance) You'll find the sticks feel sloppy in comparison.
Personally I'd sell it as spares or repair for ~£15 and use the money you get from it to go towards a new One S pad.

The campaign in this game is awful but I love the multiplayer, the DLC is a waste as no one ever plays the DLC maps, if buying just buy the base game in the sale when it's £3.75 on gold.

The 3 expansions it came with total £50, so it was the base game free, £10 and 3 months xbl for £5, it wasnt overall a bad deal
Does not include the porsche car pack or the most recent one ( or any to come out from now on)
SVRich
So this doesn't include the expansions, not very ultimate.


I agree, only thing that was putting me off. Its like these season 2 passes :(

Bought this earlier with the two expansion packs. Core game is cheaper elsewhere but made sense (to me at least) to get all the additional content. The Live and £10 credit were a bonus!

I put a preorder in at £52 and feel I've got my moneys worth, and that's considering I haven't even touched the halo wars 1 copy that comes with it
Ha ha ha. Keep telling yourself that enough and you might convince yourself, you aren't convincing anyone in here. 52....
I shall do. Considering with game sharing that would have made it almost the same price as this deal...
Shadow_of_Intent
Mine went through at £14.99. Earlier I entered the student code for £10 off a £40 spend, but on a different item. I didn't go ahead with that purchase however.
When I came back to buy this, my discount took the price to £14.99 but I couldn't verify if it was the student code, and it didn't let me take off any additional discount. It just applied by default. It's the only thing I've bought so I'm not complaining. It's just that I couldn't seem to take off the additional discount code in case I wanted to use it elsewhere.
They did something with the code from what I can tell by the PS+ thread so you got lucky or unlucky depending how you look at it X)

Mordor is part of this weeks gold sale so you have another week to grab it ;)
12 months EA Access, 3 Months Live and £10 credit for £18.69. Outstanding.

Best decision I ever made becoming a student in..... I can't remember, think it was weight loss or something :{
Any recommendations on what to spend my £10 credit on? Or should I wait till next month?
slayermatt
Main sales are ending at 11 still from what I can gather - a few like Mordor are ending earlier (1/2am?) for whatever reason cheeky Either way should get your code in time

I purchased this today ,they have sold me a code only valid in brazil !!! cant get an answer from these. it says within two hours they will respond we shall see .

They do have good customer service. I've had a problem or two (out of lots of orders) and they sorted it out for me.
gibblesuk
First time orders can be onerous from them. I had the same hurdles and DNA samples ;) but they are ok. I think they work on extremely lean margins and the digital key market is notoriously difficult with credit card and paypal if the buyer chooses to scam.
same here, a bit of a phaff to be honest, but pleased I did it - use cdkeys all the time, must be up to 20 purchases from them and no issues..quidco also pays out pretty quickly too
£32.29 with the Facebook 5% off

Took all of 2 minutes to order, receive the code and redeem

Thanks :D

It will be drive-by voters, the bane of this site.

Some of the things I can imagine they make decisions by:

It's Resident Evil - didn't like RE4 so this deserves Cold.
I'm an apple fanboy - this is windows so Cold
I'm a PS4 disciple - xbox = cold
Hate CDkeys
It's a download
Just bought it and paid full price.

Add your own.

Heat added for the deal as it is.

Can someone explain why so cold? I don't mind if a valid reason but it is the cheapest digital deal which may be of use to some like me. Cheers.

Jealousy, usually. I've stopped posting on here because the voting bewilders me.....
I think it's a good deal so have some less cold from me

Yes. I purchased it on my Surface Pro 4 using the built in Windows App store and went to my Xbox One and installed it on there. Perfect.
Is it definitely a play anywhere title otherwise it will only work on the format you buy it on

Considering the trial didn't come to EA Access at all then I can imagine them delaying putting this on for a bit longer. Pony up the £15 guys and girls it's an absolute bargain.
I'm pretty certain Titanfall 2 isn't coming to EA Access.

So glad I waited now.

Amazing game Best Buy last year stupid release date stopped it being a hit
Is this for Xbox? Not very clear from title.
bear91
Such an awesome game, such a shame the player base seemed to drop quickly, did not get the attention it deserves :(

Its an excellent game and with a huge player base. May be you are talking about the original but even that i am able to play everyday without any issues.
This is a no brainer at this price. Its as good as any Halo campaign and im a Halo fan.

Its very well thought out and a great balance between Titan and foot soldier and some very original touches like back in time. Ill say no more as I dont want to spoil it but this is a cracking game.

So far I have purchased Titanfall 2 (£15) and Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection (£20). There are a few more which are definitely worth buying. A list with links has been posted by Buzz: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/xbox-ultimate-game-sale-now-live-prices-thread-2729403

Getting chilly! Fair enough giving people a heads up but this has already had quite a few mentions in other threads and by saying "please post any deals in this thread" you are essentially saying to people, do the work and my deal will get the heat!
Maybe people would prefer to make their own threads when it's clearer what the deals are...

Interested in the Chromecast 2, it says they have 350 in stock. Will the deal disappear on their website when that deal is done or could I potentially pay 21.99 for Horrible Bosses 2 and end up with no chromecast?

They're 40 dollars in the US so that doesn't make sense to be £23.99 but you're right, they are. I'm not certain but I wonder if they're actually on sale on psn. The base game is!

Great price! Really tempted to get one just for the 4k bluray and sell the games.
I am the same, missed the better bundle yesterday as I couldn't decide, going to be getting a 4k tv soon and really like the idea of having a 4k blu ray player, at the moment I have the original ps4 but I am not sure if this is a boost at all or if the ps4 is still better.
PS4 is still technically better and has the better exclusives imo but it depends on what games you like.
The original ps4 is better than the one s? With regards to exclusives I don't care about playstations, God of War, Uncharted, Horizon, honestly couldn't care less but I know thats just me and they are very good games.
Yes, the one S got a small cpu bump but still behind the OG PS4 in terms of power. It does have the advantage of 4K player.
I'm the same when it comes to Xbox exclusives ;) apart from GOW, I loved that on the 360.
Yeah the 4k player as well as backwards compatibility and better free games through gold each month over ps plus, are all making me very tempted to switch over.

xbox live logoXbox Live Service

Microsoft's Xbox was launched in 2001, and swiftly became one of the world's premier gaming consoles, as have its successors, the Xbox 360 in 2005 and the Xbox One in 2013. From the start, the idea was to link console units up to an online entertainment store, where users could purchase new games and enhance the ones that they already owned. Hence, Xbox Live was born.

The major attraction of the service was the ability to play the latest console games over a broadband connection – something that no console had offered until Xbox Live came along.

Since its release in 2002, Xbox Live has been the place to go for all forms of digital products relating to the Xbox series. It was updated in 2005 and again in 2013 when new Xbox systems were introduced, and in 2007 it was also extended to Windows computers, making it potentially available for billions of people around the world. In the future, it will also be extended to smartphones and handheld Xbox devices.

Free or Gold Version of Xbox Live

Xbox Live comes in two major forms. As its name suggests, Xbox Live Free is free of charge and is available for all Xbox and Windows users. Xbox Live Gold is a paid-for subscription service that provides a wider range of online gaming options.

Features in the Xbox Live Free Package

  • Live Free provides a limited range of services that are enough to set up online play and social networking, but with restricted potential.
  • Players are able to set up their own avatars and they also have access to the Xbox web browser (Microsoft Edge on the Xbox One and Internet Explorer on the 360).
  • Players can save their games to the Microsoft Cloud so that they can pick them up later. They can also accumulate Microsoft Points to spend in the Xbox Live Store.
  • The basic package also supports various Microsoft-approved apps, including the search engine Bing, Skype and the Microsoft Movies and TV service. It provides streaming access to other international providers, such as the BBC, 4 on Demand, Amazon Instant Video and Netflix.

Features Included with Xbox Live Gold

  • The range of features in the Live Gold bundle is considerably wider.
  • If they purchase the premium package, gamers can take advantage of five minutes of free recording, allowing them to show replays on sports game and FPS shooters.
  • Hundreds of free games are made available by the games with gold feature.
  • Crucially, owners of the premium package are able to take part in online multiplayer gaming. They can supplement their gaming experience with audio communication and they can broadcast their gaming via the Twitch service. They can also share their footage via YouTube.
  • Several apps are only available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers, including NFL on Xbox, Telus Optik TV and Halo Waypoint.

Xbox Live Gold Trailer

How Does the Xbox Live System Work?

Xbox Live is organised around a system of points or rewards that gamers can buy or earn through their play, and then use them to purchase products at the Xbox Store. When they set up their Xbox Live account, every user chooses a GamerTag, which identifies them to all other users on the network. They can then start earning GamerScore points. These can be earned through achievements on particular games and are stored in every user's Xbox Live account.

When playing online, each user can select which GamerZone they prefer to occupy. This allows them to avoid hardcore gamers and to enjoy a more relaxed gaming experience in the Recreation or Family zones. The Pro and Underground sectors are available for experienced gamers – the experience of online Xbox gaming can be tailored to all skill levels and ages.

Additionally, Microsoft has introduced the TrueSkill system. This software matches up individual Xbox Live users with approximately the same skill level, allowing for more evenly matched gameplay. Instead of climbing up large ranking tables, players can now be effectively ranked in as few as 20 matches on titles like Warhammer 40,000.

The more players use the Xbox Live system, the more rewards they earn. When they complete missions on Splinter Cell, complete online surveys suggested by Microsoft or spend money in the Live Store, they accumulate reward points in their local currency.

These reward points cannot be cashed out into actual money, but they can be used to buy products like streaming movies, games, apps and TV shows. Xbox Live Users are not left on their own to explore the network. To assist new users, Microsoft decided to recruit a pool of Xbox Live Ambassadors – store members who have shown that they can help other users. These ambassadors are available in many languages and can offer technical assistance as well as support in using the store.

What is Available on the Xbox Live Store?

Both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One have a wide selection of games, and you can download titles and expansions for them on the Xbox Live store. The Xbox One games with Gold service provides access to a constant stream of new titles, such as shoot-'em-ups like ZHeros and RPGs like Styx: Master of Shadows. But the main products available on Xbox Gold relate to bigger titles that are purchased separately in hard copy. You can log onto the Xbox Live store to buy a season pass to Tomb Raider, access new battlegrounds on Halo 5 or add character features on GTA 5. There are also multiplayer expansions for popular titles like Star Wars: Battlefront and new missions for Call of Duty.

xbox live games

How to Use Xbox Live Codes

When you purchase Xbox products from high street retailers or via HotUKDeals merchants, they will usually come with a prepaid code, which has to be entered onto the Xbox Live system, informing the service to download the product that has been purchased.

The great thing about prepaid codes is that they can be given as gifts, allowing younger Xbox users to redeem them without the use of a credit card. You can find them in the cards provided by your retailer. Look for a 25-character code above the barcode. All that you need to do is head to your Microsoft account on any web browser and choose the "redeem code" tab. Or, on the Xbox One console's home screen, head to the store and select the games tab. Under every game, you should find a "use a code" button. After clicking that, you can use the Microsoft Kinect controller on your Xbox to scan QR codes, or enter the 25 code manually. Xbox Live Gold codes are not locked by region, so you don't need to worry about sending them as gifts abroad or using them in other countries.

The Pros and Cons of Using Xbox Live

  1. The greatest advantage of Xbox Live is the amount of entertainment content that it provides access to. But it has more to offer besides content. Since its opening, the Xbox Live service has built up an online community of millions of active users, who can provide support and participate in multi-player gaming on all of the available titles.
  2. The matchmaking function is also a great way of bringing members of the community together. In theory, Xbox Live makes it much easier to avoid frustrating match-ups against superior or inferior gamers, enhancing the whole gaming experience.
  3. The Xbox Live service also provides a regular stream of free games and other content, which can add up to £400 to £500 worth of products every year. The online store is also the only way to secure big discounts on many titles for Xbox consoles.
  4. The multi-player system is quick and easy to use. The lack of significant lag makes gaming more enjoyable and helps to avoid cheating on some titles. There are also useful gaming features like in-game chat, party sessions and friends lists.
  1. On the downside, the Xbox Live service provides far fewer free games than Sony's PlayStation Plus (PSN), and Xbox doesn't provide exclusive television content as Sony does.
  2. XBox Live also experiences periodic problems with status, which you can track via sites like IsDownRightNow. Often, this is due to problems with ISPs, and hackers have also targeted both Sony's store and XBox Live. Some customers find that the information provided by Microsoft when the service goes down is insufficient, but this is not a problem limited to Microsoft.
