  • a peeking duck

    3 titles, nice.

  • DragonYen

    Looking forward to Zombie Apocalypse, hope it doesn’t suck!

  • TaygetaVendetta

    Zombie Apocalypse is a definite buy for me. I’ll give the Warriors a shot with the trial, but I am interested in it.

    Ion Assault looks generic, think I’ll be passing on that one.

  • Cygnes

    I as well have been looking forward to Zombie Apocalypse. Its nice when XBLA games aren’t 1200pts.

  • erichsouza76

    Not quite the actual The Warriors game but let’s check ‘em out on Wed.
    Ion Assault looks good at least.


    I’m really looking forward to Zombie Apocalypse and it’s good to see it at that sweet-spot price of 800 points too!

  • FightDog 85

    Will Zombie Apocalypse come to the german marketplace also?

  • Rokntek

    Wow. THREE titles, ALL for 800 points each? Praise be, is M$ finally getting a clue about game pricing?!?

  • sepulturas666

    Zombie Apocalypse and Ion Assault for me. And yeah, nice to see more 800 pts games. :)

  • segarr

    Pretty cool. I’ll check out all those demos.

  • metallicorphan

    its a shame that The Warriors,the original Rockstar game wasn’t made backwards compatible or even appeared on the Xbox originals list,i would of bought it,i did have the xbox version..and i still have the PSP version,great game

    Major-any chance we can get some Operation Flashpoint 2 vids appearing on the marketplace,as there have been quite a few released now,and its due out in a few weeks

  • Rick Dias PK

    That’s quite a release list. I’ll be checking these out…

  • K04 Passat

    All 3 look good. Too bad I’m running low on space, on my 120 gig drive. It sure would be nice to know if I’ll be able to transfer my data to that big 250 gig drive… The one that comes in the big Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 elite package…

  • yamayamayaamaa

    Good games at great prices. Thanks!

  • Heinrich

    *expecting post from Major Nelson apologizing for price posting error*

  • N3WB13 R0N

    Zombie Apocalypse cant wait!!! 800 points i am hearing.. *squee*

  • deddel

    definitely getting zombie apocalypse, might get warriors game, but ill get the trial before buying

  • Gambit3rd

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! Zombie Apocalypse, finally!!! I’m waiting for this since it was announced. I see a huge potential in this game and I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy it. Hope the demo will be good, anyway. The price, 800 MS, was announced some months ago.

    Ion Assault seems to be a good game (need the demo to better understand the game) but it’s not my game type.

    And, Warriors… I’ve seen footage here and there and it seems to be mediocre.

    And next week Puzzle Bobble! MS is really hitting my wallet this month! :D

    no crash course????

  • OPT1CS

    800MS points for Zombie Apocalypse is a steal.

  • Shiaoran

    Can’t wait to pla-ay those!

  • DHartmann

    Zombie Apocalypse !!!

  • waitfortomorrow

    Seems at least one of these will be cutting into my ODST time. :O

  • Jimbo76

    Nice list of games this week. been waiting for zombie apocalypse.

  • Velete

    fail links fail, please preview posts in future

  • wolfzero01

    Zombie Apocalypse looks cool & the price isn’t bad, but I’ve seen some of the footage for the Warriors & it looks really bad. its too bad MS couldn’t get the version Rockstar did, good thing I got the PSP version.

  • OptomisticSi

    For the love of God, where’s Serious Sam HD, they said it would be out in the summer and that’s almost over!!

  • Kenjuan

    Count me in for the Zombocalypse!!

    Links don’t work for UK as they default to en-GB (which doesn’t have pages for the games) instead of en-US.
