    that explains why 2 out of 3 of these have never been on sale…

    • http://twitter.com/mcmax3000 David

      Two our of the three what? The games coming to disc? They’ve all been on sale. Trials HD & ‘Splosion Man multiple times. To the point where a lot of people laugh when they’re on sale again.

        oh yeah completely forgot Limbo was on a 1 day sale or something, just wasn’t low enough for me to bite! so yeah all 3 on sale!

    What the hell this is bullcrap. Where the F is the MK demo? That’s it. All the character intros and endings along with story mode have been leaked. Time to start posting spoilers everywhere. Kratos begging and ending on ps3 sites first.

    I was really hoping RDR was going to drop to $30 on GoD today like it did at retail last week. I’ll buy it the second that it does.

    Comic Jumper’s sale will be also available for free members?

    wow … still no MORTAL KOMBAT…whats wrong with xbl you would think you would promote the crap out of that game, avatar, themes pics….seems like easy money for MS

    • http://profiles.google.com/etherphoria joe aucoin

      I think Mortal Kombat and PS3 have an exclusive thing going on for now

  • http://twitter.com/daioujoe Joe

    Strania is still out tomorrow, right?

    That Strania game looks excellent. Those Bad Company 2 deals are pretty good. I recommend the Vietnam pack for anyone that hasn’t got it yet.

  • http://twitter.com/AttitudeForGain BeAttitudeForGains

    The Extreme Shopping Link only works for the US Xbox site. Does that mean the sale items are only for the US, and if so, will there be a comparable sale in other Live regions?

    • http://twitter.com/AttitudeForGain BeAttitudeForGains

      Never mind, I’ve checked on my console and it all seems to be available in the UK region too.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XUOT27IUIREEOK6MRMRR7D4IPI Martin

    Major, is this stuff for Gold members only?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000053416770 Ian Campbell

    Nice, Major! So many great deals! I’m gonna have to grab some MSP to get some of these Arcade titles. (Not to exclude possibly some Halo Wars DLC.) ;)

  • ElektroDragon

    Great comprehensive listing… but why is SeisouKouki Strania missing and replaced with another Dishwasher game?

  • http://twitter.com/silver_DewSky silver_DewSky

    Dang! Bought Dead Money last week, but got more points anyway for stuff. Might get World of Keflings or Raskulls.

  • http://whywasibanned.com TomeOne

    You guys are definitely improving on the whole “deal” concept.

  • http://twitter.com/Thorpe Luke

    Good deals this week. Already got a few things, though.

    damn, I just bought BFBC2:Vietnam last week! If I had just waited a bit… That’s what impatience buys you, kids… Plus, XBL wont even let me buy the Black Ops map pack :-/

    where is mortal kombat demo .. you guys have almost no xbox360 exclusives and sony is doing a much better job of getting exclusive demos dlc features like 3d

    xbox now feels like wii they focus on casual..

    and lets hope that 3rd party y make stuff for the core games and even them sony is winning with that dead space mortal kombat batman aa portal2 all better on ps3 cuz of exclusive stuff. and the list goes on and on

    the core gamers are loyal but you will lose them if thise continues like this bad casul well they are cheap and they move on

    All great deals. Even more deals exist on the Dashboard in the Specials and Offers area.

    However, I still think the console and its various paid advertisers could benefit from a promo advertising area. It can be difficult at times to check back with certain ad-based promos like the SAP coverage of great NFL moments or other ads that provide gateways to contest entry or just great informational or entertaining stming video content.

    when are you going to release anime avatar clothing? As i remember there was a vote last year. Kung fu moves etc. came first and Anime second, followed by dinosaurs. Well we’ve had the moves and the dinosaur pets… but where’s the anime? Oh i know you don’t want to pay for the license because it’s money.

    If you want me to keep my xbox and spend my money, then actually bring stuff out we asked for. Where is the friend list increase? Shutting down the xbox servers because of the friend cap was an outright lie and you know it.

    Does anyone know if “You don’t know Jack” is going to get released in Europe?

    good to see more Kinect Demos i really only bought it for child of Eden but its good to know i can check out other games to see how they fare, i have to small children and they do love animals.

    The Battlefield sale is good news for me too, the Spectat bundle is the only piece i dont have and the sale has convinced me to get it next week.

    Hi,
    Just wondering if you happen to know when there will be an update for windows phone 7 to be able to select my own ringtones and not the set ones on the phone. seems a little lack of variety for me.

    Thanks Duder.
