    I almost care! The prices are lower it seems but neither game is worth playing again. Dirt is only “Eh”. And Dead Space while an amazing game is only playable once. Theres no reason to play it again. But at least its a good price for those who haven’t played it…aka those who live under rocks.

  • HFC

    After reading this I was somewhat optimistic. 20 USD sounds like a great deal….Until I go to Marketplace here in Australia. $69 AUDS. Glad to hear that the complaints are forcing MSFT to change pricing but it seems only the US is being catered for. Australia certainly isn’t.

    i’ll buy dead space on disc, even though there priced evenly. i dont have 6 gb of space, and i hate the stupid drm. but i am glad prices are becoming more reasonable

    Wait, so we pay for Gold and PS3 owners get the Brutal Legend DLC for free and we don’t. That’s lame as hell!

  • GalfordDWeiler

    Right now, I can see Dead Space available at 8,68 GBP, which is a bit less than 10 EUR. DiRT can be found at 8 GBP as well (prices from Amazon website). Therefore, I still think GamesOnDemand will be the least used feature of my xBox for sure.

  • ss55goku713

    I’m loving the price of Dead Space. I only borrowed it from my friend for a few days but I’ll likely buy it since its only $20.00! :)

  • Tyrant Dunn

    The Only reason why I pay for xbox live gold is for halo 3 and sometimes gears of war. Xbox 360 does have the ps3 beat for games by far. I do think microsoft needs to come down on there prices for xbox live

  • yolarrydabomb

    atleast Dead space well worth the price…maybe I should buy it.

    Oh too bad I already spend all my money on a ridiculous wi-fi adapter for my xbox.

  • Grumpybum

    The equivalent of US $19.90 is AUS $21.80. WHY is it $69 on the Aus marketplace?!

  • Grind Axis

    Games on Demand is a mess of a service. There needs to be a more even pricing service.

  • DigitalCorporal

    @MajorNelson

    Have the team that decide what games are launched for games on demand ever considered the Deadliest catch game do you know?
    It never became available in Europe as from what i read the creators were a small company with limited capacity. There is a huge following of the deadliest catch in Europe and i thing it would do well here if it were available.

    Something for the guys to consider maybe?

  • bUbbALoUmCc

    Since adding the games on demand plus videos, music and dlc. There is a million pieces of content on the service now. Major tell the people working on live to get get together and have a big Black Friday sale on Live. LOL
    I bet with some really good savings you will sell tons.
    ~ Maybe there is already people working on doing this but I am just saying. ;)

  • CochransLac

    I bought a used copy of Dirt for $4.99 from Block Buster.I dont think it should of been priced more than $19.99 imo.

  • Neo X5

    Why does everyone continually talk about this service compared to used games and sale prices? Used games are based on the discretion of the store selling it and sales are based on the same criteria. Those prices are not set by Microsoft or their publishers. The Games On Demand service is based on the MSRP New.

  • Lynch182

    @Neo X5 – people keep mentioning used games and sale prices because thats the competition, people (smart people anyway) will always try and get the best deal, and if you can get something for £5, why on earth would anybody pay £20, for the same thing?? and with these service been limited to one console and no sell-on, all of this should be reflected in the pricing. both of these games should be no more than £10 each. americas dead space for $20 = £12.23 is the best deal so far, but because of the imaginary data transfer costs we still pay and extra £7.76 (£19.99). support your local second hand stores and always search for the best deals otherwise the future for games will be limited. look at the prices for hard drives and wireless adaptors, if digital distribution was the future, you should prepare for a price hike to £80 per game, for one console only, which can’t then be resold or shared with friends. microsoft isn’t the way forward.

  • cliftonJONES

    microsoft should release a larger hard drive that could be primarily used to house these downloadable games…i mean, these take up a lot of space and i’m the kind of guy who also downloads XBLAs…

  • BMW530XD

    A very weak policy of microsoft to let their other regions to price their game higher than US prices.
    Maybe microsoft should start pricing dlc’s in other countries higher too?

    Instead of 160ms points for a rock band song, it should cost 400 ms points. This would be a fair price and equals the price compared to a GoD game. (except for Australia :) )
