    Peggle is awsome


    …and why is it necessary for MN to get the games early again and play them on his personal xbox? eeeeeend scene


    …and why is it necessary to tell us when you achieved 100k gamerscore and that you want 150k now??? LOSER

    Someone needs to be banned from posting here…

    Oh, AutomaticOcelot, go to the checkout and type in the code “blitz1″. ;D

    Meh I won’t be getting this. I tried to reason why it would be worth it but I own it for PC. And for one its more expensive on live. And heck I can get Peggle Deluxe or whatever which includes more levels for like $10. (Which I own anyways). Online play isn’t worth it. Maybe when it goes down in price, which will be 400 no doubt.
    BTW Carnage Rules. Buying every game doesn’t make you a gamer lmao. A good gamer is someone who is actually skilled at a game. I mean good enough that we all know who you are. For instance…is your name Fatal1ty? Or however he spells it. I doubt it. If you were really skilled you’d be at tournaments and not on a blog posting about how cool you are. lol…I believe you’ve been pwned sir!
    And for the record everyone also knows achievements don’t mean jack anymore. 100,000 is not hard to get. I constantly see people still able to hack their 360, get easy points and still get online with Gold. Your points could be fake. Who knows. Who cares. Gamerscore is about as good as a nail in the foot. No one cares about it and no one really wants it. Its “Cool” status went away long ago.


    I don’t want to insult you but, please read my posts again. Your reading comprehension seems to be off a bit. My posts were in response to and directed at the comments made by Killer Scuzzy J. You’re either a friend of his or didn’t understand what was written. I’ll clear it up for you. #1 “Buying every game doesn’t make you a gamer lmao” I never said that because clearly that doesn’t make any sense at all. What I wrote about the games I own was a response to Mr. KILLER claiming I only finished 20 games. According to MR. KILLER a game is only finished when you own all gamerpoints. Everyone here must agree that is the dumbest thing they’ve heard. Is a game not finished when the credits role? Not according to MR. KILLER. …and KILLER I’ve got 40 retail games finished to your 50. #2 “A good gamer is someone who is actually skilled at a game. I mean good enough that we all know who you are.” Thats untrue 17 million+ users and you think you would know all the great players???? WHAT???…and I never said. I said “I was a player of good GAMES”. I’ll let my skill speak for it self against anyone I play with. #3 “If you were really skilled you’d be at tournaments and not on a blog posting about how cool you are.” Again What??? I don’t know haow old you are but, I have a family to support and playing in video game tournaments are for daydreaming little boys. Sorry if I insulted you there. I never wrote the word “cool” and you using pwned does tell me you’re on the young side. Last but not least #4 I think you’re confused on the gamerscore comment I made. I REALLY don’t give a rats @ss about gamerscore. I was refering to KILLER SCUZZY J’s bio. Where his gamerscore is sooo important that he has to make sure that we all know WHEN he reached 100k and he would also like to tell us that he’s going for 150k. Thanks for letting us know KILLER. I’ll be looking for that apology, oAssassin Xo. I’m not a troll unless troll means telling the truth. Sorry if the truth hurts. Some people just can’t take it.

    Carnage Rules et al, if you guys want to argue about something don’t clutter up the comments in Major’s blog posts to do so. Nobody else cares about your argument, your gamerscore, or most any of the other petty things you’re arguing about so you can take it up in private message by clicking on the name on somebody’s comment, and clicking “Start Conversation”.

  • HFC

    Yeah, I like. 800 points. Fair do’s.

  • HFC

    Kick ass Lith !Fricking kidzzzzz.

  • Exu

    @Assassin – This is Peggle Deluxe, same amount of levels.

  • Monhegan

    Great game. Try it and buy it!

  • Eviltattoo

    I have to agree…I was skeptical about Peggle, but after playing it, I think it’s a damn addicting game.
    One of the better casual games on XBLA.
    Too bad after I bought it, I found it on PopCap’s website for $5 for the PC.
    It would be cool though if Microsoft puts up Peggle Nights as DLC.

  • StaticFree

    Tried the demo last night and was hooked instantly. I can see now why people go on about how good and addictive Peggle is. I couldn’t resist buying it.

  • LawdaddyCO

    Is this game any fun? I think my wife may want it.

  • MrGreen13

    I love Peggle! Great buy at 800ms points! Can’t wait to get home for some more!

  • OS Perry

    Being able to preview NXE themes on my Xbox 360… or anywhere for that matter would be nice… like I guess you all are too busy coding/creating gold crowns for gold members to get the previewing of premium themes available. :) Cause Peggle has a Premium theme, and I’m getting tired of the old free Winter theme. But I’m not about to purchase a premium theme, without seeing it first.

    By the way Peggle is GREAT, and I want more Pinball FX tables.

    Xbox LIVE Arcade is superb for the most part… and I’m really enjoying the community games too.

    Okay, I lasted one day. Peggle is awesome! The Battle is really nice too, loads of ‘peggle-o-maniacs’ out there. This going to be a good weekend starting with Friday the 13th (2nd one of 2009). I might just complete my pick up of Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. Peggle, The Maw, Resident Evil 5 and Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts in one week. Almost a ‘Number of Games Purchased Back-to-Back in a Week in Two Days’ a record breaker for me.


    Thanks, I want it on PC too (EBGames was giving it out without even knowing what it was – wouldn’t you know it, I asked for it and they were out). Although they just got in codes for Trivial Pursuit – I’ll pass for now as I hardly play Scene It: BOS because it kicks players at random (including myself) when I play online. Nothing like being No.1 and you just drop out. Even worse if you are losing and you are kicked and we think you dropped because you were losing. Now I can watch NetFlix and play Peggle at the same time when I’m not working.

    Ok um, I feel like I stepped into a Cult thread. Like everyone here is already brainwashed, and I’m out the outside wondering what the big deal is. I tried pebble and, I honestly can’t understand how someone could find it “awesome”, or “engaging/addicting” or even “fun”. How can you possibly predict where the ball is going to go after even 3 bounces? What is the the fun then? It’s like randomnly dropping a ball and crossing your fingers as the game plays itself. I just don’t find games that play themselves, (except perhaps RPG’s that at least have a story), to be engaging? Can someone explain to me what the “Draw” of this game is? If I want shiny graphics and neat sound effects, Geometry Wars seems like a much better way to spend your time? This game seems to have little to no actual skill involved. It reminds me of Brickles, without the ability to know which way your ball was going to go…

  • ToothlessFrog

    Sweet game! This is the kind of stuff I like. Well worth the $10 price tag (no more than that though, but still worth it). It’s a great pick up and play, luck with a touch of strategy game with loads of replay value. This is a worthwhile purchase for $10, I wish there were more $5 games, but as long as they cut it out with the $15 and $20 games, I’m fine with it.

  • BrooksterMax

    Great game :)

  • Schoon

    This game is great fun! My 3 year old loves watching me play it. I played through the entire Adventure mode yesterday after I bought it. Took me about 4 hours. Didn’t quite make the 20 million so I’ll have to go back through again and see if I can score higher so I can get that Achievement. Great fun and great value for $10, thanks for bringing this to Xbox Live!

  • ColinVI

    I will echo what has been said by just about everyone… Thank you for Releasing this Game, Thank you Popcap for this wonderful gem…However I must ask …When is Peggle Nights coming out ? ;)

  • Monster Warfare

    I wish I had points so I could buy this. I have it on PC and I love it!

  • Warrengonline

    Whoops, no Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, but I did score the hardcover strategy guide for RE5 – although I’ve only played Peggle Multiplayer.

    Some games are not for everyone. We’re having fun in multiplater! Ultra Fever is

  • snaketide

    Been playing this a bit this weekend, and love it, but there have been fairly widespread reports that when playing online, if you try to ‘ready-up’ for another game whilst in the post-game lobby, you end up getting bounced back to the game type selection screen. Quite frustrating as you end up losing the group you’ve been playing with.

    Hopefully a patch will be forthcoming?

  • SeeUInTheFuture

    I wish I had points =(
