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

  • SAKY

    Brutal, no Minerva’s Den.

  • Lavindathar

    Well, although it’s a similar DotW I did pick up the Big Sister outfit. Shame the head isn’t on it.

  • SilentHunter382

    It was only 2 months ago they had the same deal expect they added the “Protector Trials” DLC.

  • chiruno99

    Silly repeat sale. There’s no room for you in my concern.

  • kdzBiBa

    I’d love to see some XBLA Deals, still need to spend 1.2k Points for the 800 Points bonus :)

  • rogXue

    so let me get this straight… the only one worth a damn was Minerva’s Den. Guess which one isn’t up there? Let me know when that DLC drops to $5

  • Dont be nasty

    Game is dull, can’t even be bothered to finish it and definitely don’t feel the need to pay extra for what is already on the disc. Shame because the first was amazing.

  • darkwonders


    DOTWs don’t count towards your 2400 points needed.

  • Urchin80


    Xbox support has stated several times that DotW DOES count. Then again they have stated a couple of times that it doesn’t. But more often than not, they say that it will work.

    I believe on similar deals in the past, people were getting their rebates by including DotW stuff.

  • a1984darkboy

    Bioshock 2 was definitely an awesome but I already traded it in. Unless they release a GOTY edition with all of the content in place, I don’t think I’ll be revisiting the world of Bioshock until Infinite comes out.

  • kdzBiBa

    @Darkwonders & Urchin80:

    Okay thanks for info :) Then it’ll be Trials HD I guess, the only game left that seems interesting to me.

  • Yukon Cornelius

    @darkwonders … Yes, DotW does count, as there’s no mention of “sale content not included” on the offer page:

    Xbox won’t make the distinction if you bought XBL content during a “sale” week as opposed to other weeks. It just doesn’t apply to avatar content or GoD, that’s all.

  • Yukon Cornelius

    Like others, would liked to see Minerva’s Den (since nobody’s playing multiplayer with newer AAA titles out), or more avatar content on sale (including the Big Sister helment & classic Big Daddy outfits). All in all, a DotW repeat seems like no thought or effort went into this one, whereas a simple phone call between Xbox & 2K Games could’ve expanded or enhanced it to make it “fresh”. A widescale sale on ALL Bioshock 2 content would’ve easily generated a better response.

    Looking forward to next week’s great offers, though!

  • darkwonders

    @Urchin80 @Yukon Cornelius @kdzBiBa

    Hmm… Well I’ve read that it doesn’t. Also at the bottom of the page


    it says that this cannot be combined with any other offer. Technically DOTW counts as another offer… Tho this is the last DOTW anyways and I haven’t boughten any other ones this month so I should be good regardless.

    I just would rather be safe than sorry.

  • Exu

    DOTW didn’t count but now it does. So does Super Meat Boy’s promo price.

    Also yeah sod this repeat CONtent. Wake me up when Sinclair Solutions is free (it’s on the disc you robbing gits) and Minerva’s Den is half off.

  • wolfzero01

    recycling deals of the week now?


    This again already??? The only way this would have been worth it is if they had added Minerva’s Den, and of course that’s the only DLC that’s not on sale. grrrrr

    And yes for those of you wondering about using DotW offers for the thank-you 800 points, it specifically says in the fine print on the official page “…cannot be combined with any other offer” and that is exactly what the DotW deals are. So if you really want your 800-point refund, don’t risk it and only buy regularly-priced downloadable items with your points.

  • MrT820

    Silly when Rapture Metro is still essentially broken, with no easy way to play any of the new maps as they’re not on the playlists.


    @MrT820: It’s not broken; it’s just that everyone in the lobby has to have the DLC maps in order for them to come up in the matchmaking.


    Ok so apparently Microsoft is going against their own “cannot be combined with any other offer” fine print and are indeed counting DotW offers toward the 2400 points spent.
    It’s a shame though that final official word about this has to finally come with only 5 days left in the promotion.
