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
