Deal of the Week: Saints Row 2 ‘Ultor Exposed’

 

 

Xbox LIVE Gold Members can save 30% this week when they purchase the Saints Row 2 game add-on Ultor Exposed. Normally 800 points, this weeks it’s 560 points.

 

Deal, Game Add-on By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Seleste

    Hm, I didn’t know this existed. Guess it’ll make for a decent excuse to bring out SR2 once more.

  • LEGENDARY T0AD

    I probably would get it, if it were 400, but not 560 for a game this old.

  • Exu

    Gay Tony’s just come out, why the hell would I want this?

  • Gambit3rd

    Next week 3 ON 3 NHL ARCADE for 400 Ms Points.

  • erichsouza76

    Good point Exu.
    With TBoGT out now, why bother with a crappy SR2 add-on?
    I mean, I actually do like SR2 but the DLC for it just doesn’t stand to the full game at all.

  • Perixon

    Major, I usually stand up to you and the Xbox team in these matters, but I have to agree with what’s already been said – too much, too late. If you guys are going to continue to promote DLC (as opposed to actual arcade games, which seem to be what people prefer and expect), then at least make the discount worthwhile. Anything less than 50% seem totally uncalled for. If you can’t honestly do better than this, then I humbly suggest that you skip the Deal of the Week altogether.

    My €0.05, anyhow.

  • Alphos

    Another shitty one. We want Acade game deals, not DLC!

  • K04 Passat

    Actually, I’m cool with this. I’ll pick it up.

  • r3dreck

    Been meaning to get SR2 but not going to bother with the DLC till it’s a decent price.

  • A Place for Us

    I’ll be too busy playing Modern Warfare 2.

  • A Place for Us

    PS – more Arcade Hits please!

  • AraknidX

    Yet again a poor DotW :(

    I want to see more Arcade games in the offer *prays for The Maw to be in the offer soon*.

  • sleepydumbdude

    Lame might have got for 400 points but don’t feel like having an random number of points left over.

  • WinterSnowblind

    Saints Row 2 was actually a very good game, and in a lot of ways better than GTAIV. These add-ons are pretty good too, although they only add a handful of missions and a few new vehicles. The second pack was released at this price to begin with, because they got a massive amount of backlash for releasing this one at 800. So I’d say it’s worth it if you haven’t already bought it.. but this is what it should have been to begin with.

  • AutomaticOcelot

    @Exu: ”Gay Tony’s just come out” Uh, well said. :) As for why… probably because people who got GT day one are finishing up with the content and hopefully ready for something a bit wackier.

    @Alphos: No I like cheap DLC too. Already own the majority of Arcade titles I’m interested in playing. With DLC there’s less incentive to extend the life of an older game in prime new release season, so I’d expect to see mostly DLC deals from now til February.

  • HenkvdWeerdt

    A nice addon for just one hell of a game.
    Its in the easy setting a nice game to play with people that don’t are hardcore gamers.

  • Vegivo

    @Gambit3rd Is that TRUE? i may have to get that if your right.

  • Kandrick

    Not even 50% off for a DLC.

  • Oh baby 1994

    MW 2 nuff said!!

  • Wulf684

    How come the Dutch DotW is “Lips: Coldplay Track Pack” (not that it’s a better deal…).

  • BrooksterMax

    I really think these deals need to be more “permanent” and also cover a bigger range of software options.

    The dash is full of DLC, GoD, Arcade titles etc. surely more than one offer can be managed each week?

    Time for permanent reductions as well – a bit like the slightly more expanded arcade hits section of XBLA (well done, I noticed some new titles recently).

  • wolfzero01

    the second dlc was better that this one, its too short. I have a feeling that with the Ballad of Gay Tony out now, Dragon Age & it dlc, Borderlands & with MW2 coming out not too many people will buy this.

    Its too bad that the Deal of the Week isn’t something like XBLA games instead of dlc that is almost a yr old

  • WinterSnowblind

    I still can’t believe MS haven’t caught on with how to structure these sales really. Look at how well Puzzle Quest sold when it was knocked down in price for the week. I’m quite sure a lot of other games on there would be boosted significantly as well, if there was a decent price cut. The Maw and Kingdom for Kelflings especially are two a lot of people express interest in, but always feel are too expensive to actually buy.

  • Mr Barrel Roll

    fail fail fail

  • Exu

    @Gambit3rd Oh god that’s even worse.

  • Sneeches

    epic fail microsoft… epic fail!!!!

  • Treythalomew

    This should definitely fall under the category of permanent drop. I loved Saints Row 2, thought it was great. However I would never buy any of the dlc for over 5 each. Obviously considering Nintendo and PS3 aren’t doing consistent dropping prices, neither will Microsoft. Although considering Microsoft has been the pioneer of the online marketplace front I’d hope they start dropping prices on older items.

  • UKresistance

    30% off is hardly a deal, especially when you need a Gold membership to buy it.

  • doomsoth

    The game was at best a rental–let alone buy DLC for it.

  • mchiefvs360

    I actually prefer GTA IV.

  • SpaceNinjaDino

    Awesome! I specifically have been wishing for this DLC to go on sale.

  • Ladicek

    Download doesn’t work. I tried to download it yesterday. It has taken my points but it always stuck at 1% with status code 80070570.

  • CARNAGE RULES

    I like coming in here and finding out who’s working for minimum wage.
