This seems like a good price, and a search shows thumbs up for a B&M YMMV deal at target at a bit more. This is the physical copy, so keep that in mind prior to purchasing.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst for Xbox One [microsoft.com] - $4.99 + Tax + Free Shipping

Game Description
Follow Faith, a daring free runner, as she fights for freedom in the city of Glass. What appears to be an elegant, high-tech city on the outside, has a terrible secret hidden within.

Peace

This has been $4.99 on XBL as a digital download too, but it's the best price for a physical copy. Unlike most people, I really enjoyed both ME games. I found Catalyst to be much easier and less enjoyable, but still sufficiently so because it's the gameplay that counts. Some of the Catalyst timed challenges I find impossible because the red arrow telling me where to go (which to me is absolutely critical in the challenges) is not solid but sort of flows and I often lose track of it as it disappears in the distance. The red arrow doesn't show up until you step out of the circle and the timer starts. The first time I waste a couple critical seconds spinning in a circle trying to find the arrow. I found I had to run each challenge several times just to figure out where to go because I can't count on the red arrow being visible. Sometimes I made it, but several challenges I always missed by 1-2 seconds and gave up. Many of those times I didn't get stuck anywhere or stop because 1 mistake means you lose the challenge, but I must have not landed perfectly and it cost me. So I did the missions and a handful of challenges, but couldn't do all of them. I enjoyed the enforcer fights the most. They were really hard at first until I finally learned to dodge and hit. One part around an antenna kept dropping more guys on the helicopter and had no checkpoints. It was hard but doable. With the zip cord a lot of areas get bypassed. The building at the end was so ridiculously tall (must have been thousands of stories high) and you had to laugh there were still people up there in spite of it shaking and crumbling so you could fight them. I still liked it.

The PC version is ranked the best (native 1080p), then PS4 around 900-something resolution, and Xbone somewhere in the 700-800 range. Already having finished the PS4 version, I just can't see any point in buying the Xbone one for $4.99. If I wanted to replay it I'd go back to the PS4 one. If the PC version goes on sale for a couple bucks, I might pick that one up.

So, good deal on a good Xbone game, but I'm passing on the Xbone version even at this price.

TL;DR... yeah I know. Sometimes I wonder why I post anything here, but for every 100 ADDers here there are a few cool people who care. I post for the 5% non-TL;DR minority. Of course if my messages get ignored often enough eventually I may stop.

You wrote all that to tell us at the end you weren't going to buy it for the Xbox one? A simple I already own this on different consoles so no point in buying for the Xbox would have been great just saying.

Most gamers on slickdeals usually do as do i but if you own it for 2 other consoles why even buy it for another?! Gamers don't need to depend on word of the mouth of a random stranger especially when a game is 2 years old and thousands of videos online to watch to judge for yourself... Point was he made a huge long post to tell us he would rather play it on his other consoles again and wouldn't bother buying it a third time for another console.. Am I missing something?
