Deal of the Week: The Ballad of Gay Tony


For the next week, Xbox LIVE Gold members can purchase The Ballad of Gay Tony game add-on for Grand Theft Auto IV for 1200 points (normally 1600 points.)



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

  • Kyaizen

    Very tempting to get. I’ll probably just get the episodes disc when I have the extra cash, but I definitely recommend the expansion to anyone who hasn’t played it. I rented it a while ago and it was pretty awesome.

  • kingbet123

    Glad I waited. I will buy a points card this week and get Gay Tony and Raystorm HD. :)

  • Oh baby 1994

    AWESOME DEAL!! Great great episode!!

  • Exu

    Cracking deal if you don’t have it.
    I, however, do. Multiple deals please!
    (Disclaimer: Not a complaint.)

  • TH3Hammer

    I picked this one up when it came out and had a lot of fun with it. I recommend it for those who have been holding off.

    Hey Major, did you see the announcement for Little Big Planet 2? I think Microsoft needs to come up with something new pretty soon. Sony has really been dropping some great stuff lately. I love Mass Effect and Gears (bored with Halo), but in my opinion, XBOX360 doesn’t have anything truly amazing like Little Big Planet 2 will be.

  • sleepydumbdude

    Hmmm I haven’t purchased yet but debating on that or purchasing the disc. I’ll probably wait til the end of the week to decide.

  • Atheist Primate

    I knew this had to come some time. Wasn’t there a similar deal for The Lost and Damned? Well I didn’t get the first add-on, but Gay Tony looks like a more fun expansion. Will most likely download it now that it’s 1200 points.
    Thanks, MS. That’s a great deal. Keep ‘em coming!

  • Sneltje

    Uhhmm no I go for the disc versions only.
    I’m not that download type.


  • stststststq

    For a fiver more you can get Episodes From Liberty City on disc, but this is a good deal if you just want TBOGT.

  • Jaysonguy

    Episodes from Liberty City is 35 bucks right now, this is only 15
    So yeah, if by fiver you mean fiver plus fiver plus fiver plus fiver….

  • darkjester74

    The PC version is already at 1200 pts. :)

  • BrazCanMan

    This is a great deal in my opinion! Especially since the Episodes From Liberty City disc here in Brazil costs +/- R$199.00 (roughly $120.00).

  • Exu

    @Jaysonguy – Read where it says Country on ststwhatever’s tag. Episodes from Liberty City is £14.99 from some outlets right now, and 1200 MSP is £10.20. So yeah if you don’t have either and you’re in the UK it turns out the disc is still a better deal.

  • ElektroDragon

    Goes from being grossly overpriced, to just plain overpriced. Come on, drop it 50% at least!

  • chiruno99

    I got the Episodes from LC, it was cheaper.

  • Kroesis

    TBoGT outclasses TLatD in every way and the only part of TLatD I liked were when the story tied into the main game which I think was around twice (at least overtly) so if I hadn’t got the disk and had a choice of only one it’s the one I’d get.

    This is an ok deal only if you can’t buy the episodes disk at a low price. If you can, I’d recommend the disk.

  • A Place for Us

    I was hoping more like 800. :(

  • I DLord I

    Interested, but I have gotten enough GTAIV in my lifetime out of GTAIV. Unless these episodes do anything staggeringly different to the formula… I will pass.

  • Tree of Life xx

    I paid 1600 points for this and within an hour it was put on sale. I’m really not impressed

  • SilentHunter382


    Are you joking. Are games in Brazil always that price.

  • Wolves of Rome

    Could have been 1000 msp but nevermind i’ll guess i’ll have to pick this up as i already have TLAD downloaded

  • SCS 85

    Would have payed 800 points for it… maybe. 1200 still too much.
