Bully Scholarship Edition (360 Edition) Xbox One @ Game Download for £11.99

£11.99

Found 3rd Jan
As this has just become Backwards compatible on the XBone and I have never played it (never had a 360) and I have heard good things. I set about finding the best price on this.

The physical copy is going for silly money on ebay/amazon but Game (of all places) is doing the digi download for £11.99

TCB offer 3% on Game so thats what another 35p more off so £11.64

I would like to hear if people are of the opinion that this is a good deal - or if it can be found cheaper elsewhere. I can't. And. if played, whether its a good game that is worth getting anyway. I have heard it is Rockstars finest. But it is up against Red Dead and GTA V so I doubt it....

It's a shame this game never received a reprint.

Wtf? Is usually like 3 or 4 pounds on Xbox Live Store when there's a sale.

Not at the moment. Was £4 a few months ago. This is the cheapest I can find it NOW. And it's not likely to go on sale again soon either as they have just made it backwards compatible and know demand is up.

Sorry but not a great deal IMHO. They are just pushing prices up because of it going BC. Much as I like the 360 BC on Xbox One, before buying at this price, you need to remember it's only a convenience feature (so you don't need to own or have connected the 360) and it won't actually make the games look or play any better (very minor frame rate bump on select titles aside) you are still paying top dollar for a very early (hence basic graphically) 360 title the only difference being you can play it on your shiny new Xbox One/One S

May as well get it for £11.99 on Xbox Live instead of the rigmarole of GAME.

It's still very much worth £12. I sunk a good 30 hours into this last year, and it still holds up, side mission glitches aside (seriously, do your reading if you want to 100% this and get all the achievements). Still, it's not a deal when it's the, er, standard price of the game.

This is a great game btw, lots of fun.

Its a shame that the xbox BC works like this.... the drip and drab style just forces up prices of games on it...

bit like the "gameshare" facility xbox owners like to boast about.. it doesn't quite work like you want it to!

Pretty sure this is £2.99 every time they have a Rockstar sale on XBL (Which is usually every month or so!)

You're right there. It's been £2.99 so many times on 360, it's not even funny. I bought it for that price back in 2015, I think.

Can be bought on PS4 for £6.19 at the moment, which makes this price look … Can be bought on PS4 for £6.19 at the moment, which makes this price look poor in comparison



But that is essentially for the PS2 version with it being a straight port with very little to no upscale.

​What rigmarole? I bought. They emailed. I typed in code.

Plus Game offer TCB. Xbox Store do not. So this is, albeit marginally, the cheapest deal around.

Whether its cheaper on the PS4 or in sales on XBox Store in the past (excuse me while I punt this baby up to 88mph) or unknown sales in the future. Or whether BC creates unfair demand and price rises for old games is moot. They want £30 for this on Amazon. They want the same on ebay. Most retailers don't even stock it. So what is the standard price then? The fact is that this is the universal best price for this game on this platform at the moment. And thats all that matters? End of (unless of course someone finds the same product cheaper )

There is a glitch on this game that will not let you complete it on the xb1, I had to keep swapping between xb1 and 360 to complete the game

Yeah, what's the glitch? Had this in my backlog from picking it up for £3 and am currently playing through it after it was made backwards compatible

pffffft

What truly matters is if this deal benefits anyone? It looks, on here at least, like you're the only person who didn't buy it when it was £3? But why the sudden Bully hype? Should go play something else and buy it in the inevitable Feb Rockstar Sale for the inevitable price of £2.99.

LOL but I can see from my feed that lots of people have voted it Hot so they obviously can see the benefit. It's just that more voted cold.

The fact still remains that this is still the best available deal NOW. And, as for hype, not really. This is just the first opportunity I have had to play the game after all the hype over the years: this is the first time I have owned a Microsoft console and now the game is available on that console. I doubt that now the game IS backwards compatible it will be £2.99 again any time soon. Either way I don't want to wait on that chance. I see an opportunity at £11.99 now.

I would of taken it being voted cold because it wasnt a good deal - that it was readily available now cheaper elsewhere. But to be frozen out because it is interpreted that the BC model is wrong, inflating prices, or that previously the game was cheaper, or that you should just wait and prices will inevitably lower is a tad unjust methinks.

Ah well. It will warm up in here when I light up this bag of dog poo

Ah actually I think there may be a glitch with tapping buttons on xbox one, I never seemed to win the initial duel for the ball in dodgeball because of this but didn't really care cause it didn't stop me from winning.. But now I'm upto a mission where I need to lift a gate and tapping Y isn't working, guess I'll have to play the rest on the 360.. good game though
