    awesome. quality game with a timely discount (and i don’t have it yet).

    also, i think that i read somewhere that if you have a copy of this game when you play the new retail bionic commando that you receive some sort of bonus. maybe it’s a rubber glove skin so that you can play bionic proctologist.

  • Talus360

    Hmm….Marvel UA pack still showing as the Deal of the Week for me. I’m in Canada, does that make a difference?

  • Surly x Duff

    Yay! This is the type of thing Deal of the Week needs to do more consistently.

  • SnowPhoenix9999

    Are you suuuuuuuuuure this time…?

    Just kidding. XP

    Anyway, this seems to be an excellent deal considering the excellent reviews this game got. The “deal” pricing has already taken effect so I added it to my download queue and look forward to playing it later.

  • N3WB13 R0N

    just wait a day or so or a couple hours and it will show up Talus360..

  • Major Nelson

    Remember, you need to sign in w/ a Gold account to see the special pricing. I just checked it on the console, and and it is indeed showing up at 400 points.

  • MunkyBone

    Damn, here goes my productivity at home.

  • Talus360

    Yes, the price is showing up as 400 points at least. But the ad just hasn’t been updated. I’m currently playing my newly discounted copy of BC Rearmed :)

  • Talus360

    I would LOVE it if they discounted Prince of Persia Classic to 400 points. That’s another one I’d buy in a heartbeat.

  • Salsinha

    Marvelous! I was waiting for a discount on this one :)
    This is a MUST HAVE!!!

    Still waiting for Castle Crashers…

  • twisted poke

    Thank you Capcom. Because of you, we get a decent deal of the week for a change.

  • Malrinth

    Great deal, but a minus to Microsoft for delaying Capcom’s discount and making it their deal of the week. Deal of the week should have been the Combustible Map Pack. Nor do I see the advantage of limiting deals to Gold members. This isn’t Costco. Unless theres some really great deals to be had people aren’t going to be upgrading their membership. MS is only losing out on sales.

  • sepulturas666

    Yay, buying it. One of the best arcade games. Thank you Capcom (Best dev this gen btw).
    This is Capcom deal, and must be available for non Gold users too.
    Hope to see stuff like Prince of Persia Classic in coming ”Deal of the Weeks”….

  • moocow21

    Finally, another deal worth looking at. I might pick up some Microsoft points this week and if I do I’ll probably get this.

  • Salsinha

    Malrinth, I don’t agree with you. Just think of it like another advantage on being a Gold Member. 50 dollars is pretty fair for one year membership.

  • UKresistance

    Not my cup of tea, but I will acknowledge a good deal when I see one.

  • quikDC

    Finally a good deal. Thanks Microsoft

  • omote75

    Bought this day one and it was worth it at 800 points – it’s a steal at 400!

  • Mikewarrior

    I’m buying this on Sony’s PSN for a real looking $5… I don’t have the DRM issues, or the chance of system failures like I do on the 360 also.

  • Chitwood7412

    I was holding my Points for BF: 1942 but I will try this for a deal.

  • WinterSnowblind

    This is definitely the kind of deal we should be seeing more often.
    Not sure if this interests me personally, but for 400 points I’ll definitely give it another try.

  • MetalGearMax

    All PS3 owners get the offer…

    …only Gold 360 owners get it. Nice work there MS….

  • Exu

    So glad I decided against this when I tried it out last year, absolute bargain.

  • Anonymous

    This deal isn’t even on Microsofts part, it’s on Capcoms. One of the better deal of the weeks in a loooong time isn’t even set by Microsoft since this is also on PSN. I don’t know if that’s ironic or just plain sad.

  • noddegamra uk

    Awesome deal Capcom, thankyou.

    This really should be a permanent deal like on the PSN. It’s Capcoms wish so it’s a bit bad that Microsoft are using it as a “Deal of the Week”.

    Anyway, for those of you who are “on the fence” about this title, you should really buy it. BC: Re-armed is a fantastic re-make which will have you playing for many hours (it’s quite tough on the harder settings. Great for those who enjoy a challenge!). This is quite possibly the best thing to buy for 400MS Points on the Xbox Marketplace.

  • Rick Dias PK

    Even as I join in agreeing with those who say PSN handled this better than Xbox Live, I’ll note this is a step in a positive direction. This is a good bargain. If I didn’t already own the game, I would have bought it due to this deal, and I know friends who will be getting it soon due to the offer. It’s praise with reservations (your competition’s offering the same thing, only doing it better, it seems), but that’s still praise. I’m pleased by this weekly deal even though it’s of little use to me personally.

  • Sausage Villan

    yes!! i have such fond memories playing the original.
    i sincerely hope that the rest of the deals are like this one not some bs dollar or two off of some dlc for a game that was crap to begin with two years ago when it was released

  • ShaggyB

    How come ps3 users get the Xbox360 deal of the week?

    Shouldnt we get something they dont?

  • Aberfoyle

    I think calling this a Deal of the Week is questionable. It’s been the equvalent of 400 points on PSN for weeks now. Give us something else in addition to this and I would be upset.

    BTW Where’s Lost Cities?

  • Serblander

    Just got it! I couldn’t resist the right price. This should keep me busy for a while.

  • sleepydumbdude

    I love this game. I wish they let you gift points on this because I’d buy it for 3 of my friends who are too cheap to get live points.

  • Turtle502

    I’ll pass on this, although I agree with others it’s a good deal, regardless of who set the price. I have myself back-logged on games, and working to make my way through them. Too many games, too little time!

  • BrooksterMax

    a real deal, its in the bag for me


    @ monosocratic: Yes, there’s two hidden items in this game that when found, they generate unique codes to unlock a weapon and a special item in the 3D Bionic Commando game out now.
