Backwards Compatible, Sales, Xbox Deals & Games with Gold, Game Pass, PS + and PS Now Mega Thread

So there isn’t a shitload of posts for deals and sales, I thought - at least for the Deals with Gold and Xbox Deals I would create one big mega thread for them…

Good Idea, deals pop up all the time and having a central location might be nice.

EDIT: That is a a sweet list. BTW

Earn Microsoft Rewards Points with Xbox Game Pass Quests

Xbox Game Pass members can earn up to 2,100 Microsoft Rewards points monthly by playing games from the subscription service’s catalogue of games. There are Daily, Weekly and Monthly Quests members to complete.

You can find the quests and track your progress throughout the month by heading to the Xbox Game Pass membership area on the Xbox One or the Rewards App. If you’re not a Microsoft Rewards member, you’ll be prompted to sign up on your console, so that you’ll be able to earn points that can be redeemed towards your Xbox Game Pass subscription, DLC, and more.

You can find an example list of the Xbox Game Pass Quests for January 2020 below:

  • Extraction Expert: Complete two specific extraction achievements in Tom Clancy’s The Division to get up to 200 points. You earn points with each achievement. Complete this before January 31.
  • Metro Redux: Play Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux to complete four specific achievements and get up to 200 points. You earn points with each achievement.
  • Adventurer: Bring out your inner adventurer and get up to 200 points when you complete two specific achievements in Strange Brigade. You earn points with each achievement.
  • Achievement Hunter: Get points with your first achievement and continue to complete up to 21 achievements in any combination of Xbox Game Pass games to get a maximum of 600 points.
  • Genre Explorer: Get 300 points when you complete an achievement in three games from different genres.
  • Play something new: Complete an achievement in a Xbox Game Pass title that was added in December to get 100 points.
  • Quest Master: Complete all Xbox Game Pass quests to get an additional 500 points.

Days of Play sale offers discounts on PS4 and PS5 exclusives

Sony has now announced a list of exclusive games that will be featured in the upcoming Days of Play sale.

Over on PlayStation Blog, there is a list of the games in the sale and the activities lined up as part of the PlayStation Player Celebration.

The first part of the initiative is the community goals event that starts today. The PS4 themes and avatar prizes that will be rewarded for meeting certain goals that pertain to the amount of trophies earned and games played were listed during the announcement.

From May 26th until June 9th, there will be a digital games sale on the PSN Store and a physical promotion in the participating retail shops. There is a localised site aimed towards guiding you to physical retailers who will be involved when the event begins.

Now, for the bit we are all really here for: the games. These are the titles on sale. Get a load of this good-good.

For PlayStation 4:

  • Death Stranding
  • Ghost of Tsushima
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Predator: Hunting Grounds
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure
  • The Last of Us: Part II
  • A selection of PlayStation Hits games

For PlayStation 5:

  • Demon’s Souls
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales: Ultimate Edition
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure
  • The Nioh Collection [Nioh Remastered)

For PS5, we are looking at the big-hitters of launch. Though launch games have traditionally been found in bargain bins within a year or two, these are games of extraordinary quality. One would imagine that the money-well isn’t dry for these particular titles. With the shortage in consoles, a slow drip of consumers are entering the next-gen eco-system and are very likely pick up these tentpole titles because they are plastered all over the stores. So why are they being reduced in price?

Looking at the sales data is a little tricky at the moment because of the imbalance in PS4 to PS5 console ownership. Wreckfest, for example, was the third most played PS5 game recently, but only charted at 21. The more likely scenario is that this is a list of games that, at launch, most will have picked up one to test out the console before moving on to something like CoD. The sale might entice gamers who own one first-party game into buying another for a lower price. That darned little Sackboy is going to empty my wallet, alongside Miles Morales… and I fancy the challenge of Demon’s Souls, you know? Oh well, I guess I’ll grab all of them then.

The post also notes that there are three other components of Days of Play to look forward to. A free online multiplayer weekend will run from May 22nd until May 23rd. The Share of the Week initiative winner — where players can submit their prettiest screenshot to get highlighted in the community — will be announced on May 21st. The PS Gear Store will have some as-of-yet unconfirmed merchandise with a 20% discount. That Sackboy hat you have always wanted? Now might be the time.

This also comes on the back of news that there is one last batch of content available for the Play at Home event, so pick up some of those goodies for your favourite games before it come to an end.
