Yeah saw that. Will be getting a lot of stuff!

Already have quite a bit from there but Borderlands 2 season pass, Walking Dead 1-5, MW3 Collections 3&4 & maybe Trials HD for a start.
Not sure what I'll get yet, I'll see what the prices are when they're announced. But thanks for the heads up!
One dollar off is a big sale to Microsoft. So I will wait & see as well
