    As a side note, you can also see the same list by going to Larry’s “Head to” link above… the scrolling down and clicking on “Official Rules” to the contest.

  • sepulturas666

    Bought it! Great deal. :)

  • SkyyPlum

    This deal still not showing up here in NY nor are the new arcade games. Its just about 4 am.

  • Captain Bluey


    the pet monkey props comes up as 160 points on the dashboard (not 120 points as per your annoucement).

  • Stephan1237

    Why can’t I find the daily deals on the Xbox 360 dashboard? I only found the weekly deals

  • Gonin

    Great deal for a great game. Me and the missus played through it and were ready to tear each other’s heads off due to the competitive co-op aspect. A bit like building a bed!



    Spread the news that this new law is going to Kill Gaming hubs like XBL. The new law here in the US is going to start charging users based on Bandwidth. Can you imagine if your Top Tier bandwidth was 5 Gigs??? and at $199 a month no less…and then charged major over the limit fee’s for going over 5 Gigs?? I Netflix on XBL, and I use 5 gigs in a few movies. This will Kill my Netflix, this will Kill my Online Gaming, this will FORCE me to CANCEL my Xbox Live Membership…

    Talk to everyone you can and ask them to Repeal the Net Neutrality Law!! This is going to Destroy the Internet in the USA!!!

  • Viral Cyrix

    I thought World Of Keflings Came Out Today

  • r3dreck

    400 yes, 600 pass.

  • Mcmax3000

    If that is the list, I don’t think I’ll be picking up much in this sale. I pretty much have anything in that list that I want. Might pick up the Fable III DLC & possibly the Dance Central song but that’s about it.

  • Jonah Falcon

    Don’t insult my money!

  • rogXue


  • chiruno99

    Alice Margatroid has a grimoire, does this mean Perfect Cherry Blossom will be 400msp instead of not being on the console in the first place.

  • I DLord I


  • CrazyCake

    dang, lol i wish this was through the 31st haha.

  • sleepydumbdude

    That Kain and raziel for tomb raider pack is showing up as free and it was 400 points yesterday.

  • ElektroDragon

    And here I was hoping the Grimoire clue meant they were surprising us with Grim Grimoire for XBLA!

  • Wiizpig

    @sleepydumbdude: The Kane & Lynch pack is free.
    The Kain & Raziel one still shows up for 400 MSP for me.

  • sleepydumbdude

    sorry my mistake you are correct

  • Aynodok

    Major, note that in the Spanish dashboard the daily deals aren’t showing. I suppose you know who has to fix it.

  • Exu

    Yeah it’s a good game, one of the biggest cases of dropping the ball EVER regarding the patching and DLC, but a good game nonetheless.

    Hmm… maybe the Azure Grimoire? Dunno what BlazBlue deal could be done though, the content’s already on sale.

  • Black Fist

    I´ll get Tomb Raider, as i missed it yesterday on Steam (it was cheaper, but not that much more).
    I´ll be waiting for Limbo and the Mass Effect 2 DLCs

  • tylerh1701

    Below is a link to Joystiq’s site where they pretty much solve the daily deals hints on the xbox dashboard. It pretty much matches up with the list posted by ck, except it has hydro thunder hurricane and no mention of sonic.

  • KRiSX85

    @r3dreck… biggest tightarse of the year award goes to….. YOU! congrats!

    its 600 points… you’d be an idiot not to get it… plus the dif between 400 and 600 is sweet FA… do it!

  • ScarySaint

    im getting castlevania harmony of despair

    I’m very happy about this deal. I finally got around into picking this up, and so far, I’m really enjoying the hell out of it. 50% off is a no brainier, especially for this game.

  • SumHydroponic

    Picked it up last night and played for about an hour. Great pickup for 600msp. What is everyone’s opinion on Castlevania? Thinking of picking it up tomorrow.

  • xTheRulerx

    I went to download and try Lara Croft when I saw the 2 GB download. Yeah, I’m still one of those guys with an original 20 gb hdd.

  • I DLord I


    Only worth it if you have at the very least one friend who has it and is willing to play. Symphony of the Night is far better to go solo with.

    Hoping Limbo will also be 1/2 off, and not 1/3 off. 600 for that game would make me feel like a thief. The luckiest thief ever.
