Deal By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • ThreadShadow

    Hi Major Nelson.

    A bit off topic, but in your Xbox 101 videos,(at least the older ones) you have a screen behind you, and it features a moving Xbox styled graphic. Do you think you could make that a free Theme? It would look really great on my Dashboard! : )

    Have a great week, and I hope you have a Happy New Year!

  • Mastah27
  • Kenjuan

    Now, that’s a great discount. I had only planned on picking up Shadow Broker, but at only 200 msp each, I had to grab all three DLC.

  • J1R2D3R4M

    Good times!
    I wasn’t even considering getting Overlord, but with this price cut, I’m definitely going to be downloading the two I’m missing.

  • Echtzeit

    HELLS YEAH! Finally the right time to get all them add-ons.

  • waitfortomorrow

    So.. does anyone recommend these? I plan on getting ME2 after I beat the first one. (Yeah, I’m way behind on games). XD

  • Exu

    ‘Ello ello ello. Finally what they’re worth lol. Well I think we all know what tomorrow’s is.

  • Nitramuse


    I didn’t find them very..special. Just more of the same, Overlord is a bit different and I haven’t played the Shadow Broker…yet. It’s in my cue right now.

    But…voor 200MSP, you really can’t argue, can you? =)


    Best deal of the season so far!

  • Vega DD

    iv’e not played mass effect 2 for a while but i might get these two dlc’s for when i start playing it again.

  • L4mby

    So, I’m guessing tomorrows deal is for Monday Night Combat?

  • Hobiologe

    Well, I’ve bought all three addons two days ago for total 1920 MS Points. And now I could get it for total 600 MS Points? Call it bad luck, but I’m pissed of, believe me.

  • Stephan1237

    Also Crackdown 2 DLC is on sale this week.

  • DarkTear81


    I think they’re all worth to play, especially Kasumi and Shadow Broker… Shadow Broker might even add another story twist to ME3 I guess.
    Noone can invest their 200MSP wrong here.

  • rogXue

    These were worth it at full price. A steal at 200, GET THEM!

  • moocow21

    @Hobiologe There’s a reason there’s hints for what the upcoming deals. I’ve seen several places online that had pretty much all the upcoming deals listed already too.

    Anyway, this is a fantastic deal. Picked up Shadow Broker. I passed on this one (even though it’s supposedly by far the best of the 3) because I wasn’t pleased with the amount of content that I got in the Kasumi/Overlord packs for $7 (but at 200 points they are well worth it, for those who are wondering!)

  • Mcmax3000

    I’d definitely recommend all three at this price. I thought they were worth the normal price but I know a lot of people didn’t. They are well worth $2.50 though.

  • sleepydumbdude

    Just bought the game through amazon a week ago. Not planning on playing it til i beat the first one but going to go ahead and grab this dlc at this price.

  • Chicken Wyng

    I haven’t finished the first one yet (Work and being a father/husband tends to get in the way) and I have ME2 so this deal is a no-brainer. If somebody comes in here itching and moaning about this deal sucks needs to be banned from posting here.

  • twisted poke

    Another good deal. Thumbs up on this years countdown promotion.

  • Shadow0810

    That…is the best deal I have seen in a long time. I only need shadow broker, but it is mine! Here’s hoping Limbo’s 400msp :)

  • el bos

    Got all of them! Sweet deal!

  • Surly x Duff

    Now this is the type of deal I’ve been waiting for. ME2 is finally at the top of my “pile of shame,” and I just gave the disc a spin for the first time this week. Great time to pick up the add-ons.

  • BEASTofPREY 21

    Just grabbed all three! Best deal yet.

  • trickybuz93

    I just picked up Mass Effect 2 on Boxing Day (not on sale, but had to use my giftcard for some game right :P ), so I’m definitely picking up Overlord and Shadow Broker at this price!

  • aceattorney

    Having a hard enough time putting down Mass Effect 2 as it is!

  • HypnoticPenguin

    Good deal, purchased all 3…

  • The Grim Heaper

    Holy hell, these prices are great! I’ll definitely buy Overlord at this price.

  • I DLord I

    Hard to turn down, but my backlog of games is not getting any smaller. Pass, great deal though.

  • D4rth T Man7iz

    We may have lost the exclusivity of Mass Effect, but at least Microsoft is making an effort to relief the pain haha.

    In my case:

    Mass Effect = $18 @ Amazon.
    3 Add-ons = 600 MSP – $7.50

    Total: 25.50

    PS3 Version: 59.99

    PS: and the comic which will bridge the story from the first game, will come to 360 after all, through Cerberus Network.

    Go ahead and make use of the best deal of the season so far!

  • chiruno99

    Grabbed them in the end. I couldn’t resist the price to make a good game longer. I’ll go back to it from the beginning and continue through.

  • Casserole

    Are there still no plans to release the GOTY edition (ME2 with all addons? Yes, I’m still waiting for it! The PS3 will have it soon, why not 360?

  • Gonzo345

    How much the Mass Effect 2 DLCs costs usually? I have bought them, but I have to play the first ME game too lol


    @ Gonzo345, They cost 800 & 2x 560 normally :)

  • CrankyDude

    Nice! I’ve been waiting for a price cut on ME2 DLC!

  • The Phazer

    I nearly, nearly paid the full amount for Shadow Broker the other day, so a huge discount is lovely :-)

  • LV54Spacemonkey

    Nothing to do with this awesome deal but the Scott Pilgrim DLC released today isn’t working at all. All it’s doing is showing the new achievements. No Knives Chau or extra modes. I guess there was meant to be a title update before the DLC came out. Any chance you could kick the appropriate people up the arse to get them to make it possible for me to make some bad dudes Chau down!


  • Sausage Villan

    yeah way to good a deal to pass up so i had to get them all …. now i’m waiting for the fable 3 dlc and hopefully limbo is a good price and i can get them both for 1000 or less points

  • UKresistance

    Give us a good deal and people will buy. I’m shocked that the sales team is finally starting to figure that out.

  • adamjames34

    Second on the Scott Pilgrim DLC. Why did it take six extra weeks to come out and then just not work? What went wrong?

  • Gonzo345


    Big deal at all!!

  • Tirkon

    Great deal. I wasn’t going to get all three, but couldn’t resist at this price. While playing I got the frickin 3 red lights! A reset fixed it, but great! That would be my ninth failure when this one goes. I’ll just keep extending my warranty, which I more often refer to as my lease.
