Arcade, Deal, Marketplace By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • UKresistance

    Finally some decent sales on the games.

  • L0rN

    Just bought SF, South Park and Age of Booty. I would have bought them all at this price, but I already own the other games. Great deals.

  • mchiefvs360

    Sales like this demonstrate why Microsoft is one of the best, if not the best, corporations in the gaming industry.

  • ThreadShadow

    Thanks for the sale Major Nelson, and thanks for making it available for gold and silver members! I’m looking forward to more in the near future. Thanks again!

  • Doh Ray Egon

    @CARNAGE RULES: You’re a troll. If anyone is the “lowest of the low”…it’s you.

  • Z4M0

    I’m really looking forward APRIL XBL SCHELUDE and FUTURE RELEASE DATES of some XBLA titles like joy ride or zeno clash.


    By the way, I think this blog is a great chance to share feedback with the company whom we (the people posting here) are customers of. Pure comic relief would come to to third place for me on a place that is supossed to be an official source for feedback and of info about something I care. Period.


    Oh, I’m not into social classes stuff (George Lucas might don’t be either looking how he dresses!) but if someone asked me, I’d tell it’s about not to boasting about how much you got or just coming to materialist terms, the one who have more than the norm or paid less for it. Usuall who pay less end up having more.

    While I don’t like to label people nor myself, in the end if I had 5 and paid 3 and someoe had 5 maybe 6 but paid 9 I won’t consider him more high on social scale bug higher in being literrally, an a s s.

    By far this is one of the best “deals” they have done since I’ve owned my Xbox 360. Last night my friends and I bought Mad Tracks and Track and Field. Both are a really good deal for the sale price. We may check out a few other games before the sale officially ends, but we still have to catch up on our MW2 map pack and Perfect Dark before Splinter Cell comes out! Deals like this are definitely a plus because when arcade titles cost 800 ($10) or 1200 ($15) points, sometimes we fear the cost may not be worth the playing time we’ll get out of the title so we don’t buy them. The lower cost makes it an easier buy and gives us a better since of value on some of these titles.

    In the future, I would love to see this kind of deal being done monthly. Weekly would be nicer, but is unrealistic from a business standpoint. Not only would this increase sales, but this would also reinvigorate the online community for some of these arcade titles lacking them.

  • LittleBlueAlien

    Kindof reminds you of the ‘bargain’ bins you see on Boxing day. Largely crap that would never sell otherwise. SF2 is the only decent title there.

  • kdzBiBa

    Picked up Rocket Riot, trial was great, but 800 was too much. Still waiting for Monday, GM2 50% off \o/ Thanks MS :)

  • kdzBiBa

    Ohhh sorry, I’ve meant Geometry Wars 2 ;)

  • I DLord I

    And yet, Carnage Rules returns here every week if not more frequently, without fail. I’m sorry Carnage Rules… what exactly was your point? Oh, right, absolutely nothing of substance.

  • Exu

    Bring back proper trolling, I miss Geoff The Hero.

  • HT UK

    This is awesome, already got most of them but I picked up Defense Grid & Rocket Riot last night.

  • Anonymous

    Good sale, I might have to buy some of em :) But I want to keep my 560 points for the L4D2 add on… that’s if it’s 560 points O.O

  • LeiChat

    nice spam Veive257, you tricked me into clicking your link

  • Antarael Dulac

    Just bought 6 from 10…meh (and would have bought 2 more if i haven’t had them already…) (Streetfighter Download Code and Lumines on Disc)

    I bought:
    South Park
    Defense Grid
    Wallace & Gromit 1
    Mad Tracks
    Rocket Riot
    Age of Booty

    Yeah call me mad, but those deals are good…

    (Track & Field and Schizoid weren’t just good enough..lol)

  • D4rth T Man7iz

    Great Sale idea MS, you should do this kind of sales a lot more often, like in a monthly basis, Deal of the Week is just not enough.

    Learn about the sales done on Steam.

    This Inventory Blowout Sale is great nonetheless.

    I’m getting Defense Grid = Great Game!

  • kdzBiBa

    I’ll prbbly try shizoid, looks fun and is also 50% off… hmmm… this prices are making me buy it :D

  • Tiptoe Turtle

    I cant wait and I’m most looking forward to,”monday night combat” shown at pax east. That game looks killer. Should look and play well over xbox live.

  • Z4M0

    @ Tiptoe Turtle

    So I do. Can’t wait for it to be released. I have high expectations and actually would be nice to know release dates for MNC, hydrophobia, joy ride, zeno clash, hydrohurrycanethunderwhatever, etc.

    Besides I think I’ll be picking more of those sale arcades, how about the 400 points refund + 1 month free from the BLOCK PARTY OFFER ? any official word on when will those come to users?

  • SamF2000

    A Price structure that should be implemented for Xbox Live:

    Games On Demand no more than $20
    Arcade Games no more than $10
    Indie games $1-$5

  • GunslingerK

    Felt like I was looking at a Steam sale for a second, would love to see more blowout sales like this.

  • El RoiieR

    I’d love to seeindie games in Mexico.

  • Shoon Springs

    Love the sale, hope to see it again (with different titles of course)!

  • T Mecha

    Rocket riot is sweet. very underated game.

  • CuddlyClamShot

    Looks about what they are worth, but even getting what you pay for from MS is a deal.
