Deal of the Week: RESIDENT EVIL 5 Versus Mode

Xbox LIVE Gold Members can save 40% this week when they purchase RE5’s Versus Mode. The versus mode deal is not available in Japan, where members can purchase the Xbox LIVE Arcade title Golf: Tee It Up for 400 points (a savings of 50%.)

Deal By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

    Would have much rather had Golf. Vs mode is still a rip off even on the DOTW

  • N3WB13 R0N

    Nice job with the deal this week.. just got RE5 for $15 well worth my 3 bucks.. lol

  • Alphos

    I’m not very interested on it with the announce of RE5 Alternate edition. Why there is only one deal each week? In PSN we have lots of deal every week, for example, past week we had 5 PsOne games at half price, at least in Europe.

  • KP ScuzzyBunny

    I already have Golf and Vs mode (which still should have been in the game initially), so this week is another “meh” here. One gripe I do have, though, is to stop posting “dev diaries” and trailers for Alpha Protocol. I was very excited for the game, which was scheduled to release last week, but the 8 month delay is not something I like being reminded of every few days as another piece of content is released!

  • KP ScuzzyBunny

    …and I still can’t believe no one has pulled the ghost costume from the marketplace. So many “bad” things can be done with a white sheet covering your Avatar!

  • DarkTear81

    You mean that “Ghost Costume” which could is can be sexual offendable cause it looks like a rubberdoll? xD

    You sure the VersusMode is available in Germany? From what I know it never made it here in the first place…

    @ N3WB1E R0N

    Where did you get RE5 for $15??

    :O D:

  • theuglyteradon

    That still doesn’t seem cheap enough and it’s not worth picking up just so I can re-complete my achievements (even though I have all the retail ones).

  • Axcalibur

    Well, I’m passing on the Resident Evil pack, still a bit jaded that this wasn’t added to the actual games release. Really felt like Capcom ripping it’s consumers off, just like the costume packs in Street Fighter 4 (since the costumes were just on the disc and you were paying to “access” them… lame!)

    On the flip side, if we in Canada got that Golf: Tee It Up for 400 points, I’d be downloading it right now! :)

    Still think that each week we should get a deal on each category of content; one dlc pack, one theme, one arcade game, one xbox original, etc. It would obviously appeal to a larger group of people, and lets face it, there’s no shortage of content available on Marketplace!

    rofl lmfao rofl pmpmp rofl


    yer right ok

  • UnarmedGorilla

    Too bad… I would have picked up the golf game at 400pts.

  • Exu

    Awesome, I hope you all enjoy the opportunity of paying slightly less for a patch!
    I already got it for nothing after winning it from Major himself and let me tell you, that’s exactly what it’s worth.

  • Jonah Falcon

    I want Alpha Protocol. :/


    WoW – 40% off something that should have come on the disc.
    I am impressed. :-/

  • Radical R

    golf seems better that res5 add on :(

  • wolfzero01

    man what a crappy deal of the week, at least Japan gets a game

  • Exu

    Of course the only reason this deal isn’t available in Japan is because for them this patch has been 160 points SINCE IT LAUNCHED.

  • simon zephyr

    Oh look, we actually get a deal on a content that unlocks what already is on the disc! I must have it!

  • Xx DazzArama xX

    Every time I look at “Deal of the week” there’s no deal at all. Usually it’s always full price.

  • N3WB13 R0N

    @SlayerElite18 Cash canada i got the game for 15 bucks they were doing a big game give away i got RE5 for 15 and KOF XII for 10 bucks as well.. Great store for some amazing prices.. Picked up a few others but them are the only games well worth it..

  • Shonk

    Lets get this straight

    its on the disk

    and its 160 ms for japan since release

    ms/capcom must think we are stupid

    exactly the reason i lent this game off a friend
    instead of buying it as i usually do

    no cash for you for your bold face cheek

  • WinterSnowblind

    Pretty disappointed with this one. I wish MS would realise that if they sell good games for cheaper, more people are going to buy them.. Imagine the boost things like Kingdom for Keflings would get at 50% off? I mean, just look at what it did for Puzzle Quest, it immediatly shot up to the number one best selling game. Do they really think Fable: Pub Games is going to do that?

  • LegendaryMSN

    This seems too late, res 5 pretty dead now, the DLC was only 400 to begin with

  • VonThronstahl

    Where is the DotW for germany? Japs get their Golf and we get nothing? MS should at least give us the discount on Golf too.

  • GuZ1977

    Major, why is the DLC still showing with the price of 400 even when signed in? (At least it is in Sweden)
