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

  • Muzzymate

    Any chance that you can post the Family Pack deals when those change? I noticed that Peggle is at 400msp for Family Gold members.

  • Ai Kago

    Well, thats the price it should have been, now try discounting it to 400 points like Scott Pilgrim :)

  • CompactDstrxion

    Selling an XBLA game at the price it should have been in the first place. Try again!

  • Lavindathar

    I just picked it up, but according to friends that own this, they said they thought it was alright, even at 1200msp.

    Time will tell, downloading now.

  • Lavindathar

    Just noticed the size of it actually, and wow. 1.8 GB? Big for an arcade game.

  • twisted poke

    Might pick this up. Does this have local co-op? Online co-op? Ever since the change at I can’t find the features list for these games. Where am I missing it?

  • D33KM4N

    Yes please post the family deal changes. Peggle has been 400pts for 2 weeks. I thought the family deals would be changing weekly.

  • kdzBiBa

    Nope, not even now :/

  • I chex mix ho I

    i can’t tell since i bought it when it came out but i thought peggle was 400 ms points for everyone and not just family deal members? can anyone not on a family plan that does NOT have peggle confirm/deny this?

  • Exu

    Deals just for Family members? Really? Wow, taking perks away from proper gamers, that’s low.
    But I digress. Shank’s terrible, don’t buy it.

  • Exu

    Sorry, that’s a bit rude of me. I personally thought Shank was terrible, and would not recommend buying it. I got it in a code trade, got so far and thought “well, this sucks”.

  • chiruno99

    Got this one on PSN as well. For 800 it’s definetly worth it for the full SP campign and then the Co-op campaign with a LOCAL friend. I don’t see why you’re compalining AS USUAL.

  • hied

    I am willing to pay 80 microsoft points for that game.

  • Lohengriehn

    Havent bought it on first day of release and wont do it now. So at the end Im saving more than just 400pts – is my own DotW ;-) Plus its too big in size and too bad imo.

  • The Gentleman

    Shank is not worth it. Next.

  • Hauz20

    @exu where the hell do you get all these free codes?

  • Blue Thunder28

    Shank is fun as hell.

  • The Bill Payer

    No thanks, I didn’t enjoy the trail very much.

    When is Ancients of Ooga going to be on sale? I’ve been waiting for that! :)

    Already got it on PS3.

  • Exu

    @The Bill Payer Well that one was a trade but I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy.

  • Exu

    Whoops sorry Bill Payer I meant @Hauz20. Brain fart!

    The arcade deals are good, but we need more of them as it’s all on stuff either everyone owns or nobody wants.

  • YaoIsGod

    Where are you guys seeing that this deal is for Family Accounts only?

  • Ark Hunter

    Put Limbo on sale. I missed the RISK sale also, but I doubt it will go back on sale real soon.

  • Gambit3rd

    PEGGLE is on deal for EVERY Gold Member as far as I know.
    So, not only Family pack subscribers. You just need to be gold. :)

  • Yukon Cornelius

    Glad to see deals on current content, but how about blowing out the really old stuff, and make the markdowns either semi-permanent, or frequent enough for the new folks on XBL to experience some of the older catalog. As I always like to point out … “RoboBlitz is still 1200pts”. :-)

  • Yukon Cornelius

    @ArkHunter … expect sales at Thanksgiving and Christmas to cover both previous sales & new titles. That’s how it ran last year, and was a great time to pick up some of the more popular 2009 titles.

  • ElektroDragon

    Not a good deal. I would have bit for 400 or may even 600. But 800 just makes it the price it should have been from the start.

  • ElektroDragon

    And yes, I second that, put Limbo on sale!

  • Yukon Cornelius

    1 suggestion … make Burnout Paradise content at 2/3-3/4 off … there’s no reason Big Surf Island or the car collections should still be 1000pts!

    Major, i wont stop nagging if i dont get an answear. WHAT HAPPENED to the games on demand that you said were coming 1 month ago, like cabela’s big game hunter!!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?1?!

  • Number 01

    Major, with all the videos of people hooking up the Kinect to their computers you guys should release a Kinect Windows SDK and allow people to make programs with it for a fee. Just saying.

  • Pappy 247

    Okay, so all you people complaining that the price should have been 800 from the start and now that it is 800, thats still not good enough?…lol…Really?

    Great Deal on a great game, thanks for the update Major!

  • Thief000

    Hey Major, how about putting the Halo 3 or Halo Wars mappacks on sale for a change?

    I’m going to get deal as soon as my points are in.

  • Thief000

    Rats, now I have to buy the 2 Halo Wars mappacks at 800msp to be able to get 400msp back.
    I already have almost everything else on the eligible list.
    You should just have made it buy stuff for 1600msp, like the one in October.
    I know you won’t be lowering the price of those mappacks, so I’m going for it, RaaAaaH! :D


    When you’re as poor as Exu…

  • Exu

    Oh ha ha.

  • Lavindathar

    Finished it on normal in two sittings. Decent game, and it’s easily worth the 800msp. Plus some replayabilty there with the hard mode.

    I’d recomend it.
