    Yay list of things that I may or may not want =p

    • Anonymous

      So, sorta like a supermarket is a building filled with things you may or may not want?

      • http://lovebunni.org Heyallo

        I don’t know, I always want things in the supermarket, and it doesn’t help that my job has me working in them most of the time (Security) lol

  • http://vidjamo.com powerdarnell

    yay for deals

    Will there be any Madden 12 avatar gear?  I’d like to put a Jets jersey on my avatar!

    Portal for 600 ms while Steam is offering for FREE? Shame on you, guys! 

    • Anonymous

      Talk to Valve.

      • Elio Rodrigues Junior

        Right! Valve said that the Xbox players deserve Team Fortress 2, L4D and L4D2 updates, but the Xbox`s patches and updates system is a TRAIN WRECK. Now you talk to MS.

    • Anonymous

      Technically the XBLA one has extra maps so it’s not like it’s 100% the same game.
      Also Portal Steam stops being free after today so…

      • Elio Rodrigues Junior

        I didn`t expect to see this games forever for free, but things like that make gamers happy. I`m  just upset how MS charge for L4D DLC`s when Valve offers them for free. And Steam is making rivers of money, anyway.

        • http://twitter.com/seekul Luke Es | sE ekuL

          L4D 360 isn’t quite the same game either. Turtle Rock added in splitscreen co-op for the console. Something not officially supported on PC (and why would it be).

          • Elio Rodrigues Junior

            PC and game systems have little differences, but in essence it`s the same game. I`m not complaining about a map here or co-op there, but I want the best version for my dear Xbox, or at least a close-equal. I do not think is fair Valve try offer free DLC`s to Xbox and they don`t because of MS decision. Couldn`t they at least charge a symbolical price?

    Love that arcade games are actually going on sale.  Don’t love the fact that all 4 of this weeks deals have been on sale before and I own them all. Do love Might and Magic next week, that’s a no-brainer!

    Excited for Burnout Crash, looks like lots of fun… been missing the Crash mode in Paradise.  Disappointed that Bobblehead Pros add-on is 800MSP, will need to do more research on what it really is.

    • http://twitter.com/mcmax3000 David

      The Bobblehead thing is a new game, not a game add-on. That’s all I know about it.

      I’m also excited for Burnout: Crash! tomorrow.

  • Anonymous

    Like the Deals this week, thanks.

  • http://profiles.google.com/raulvargs Raul Vargas

    Crysis 2! We just got Bulletstorm and Homefront! It looks like the gap between retail releases is down to around 6 months! Awesome! Where is Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age 2, and Dead Space 2? After thos are put up for purchase they need to go back to their catalog and fill in the gaps as there are some quality older games that are MIA (Left 4 Dead 1 & 2, Orange Box, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, Brutal Legend, FEAR, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Enslaved, Saboteur, Stranglehold, Silent Hill: Homecoming).

    I love Games on Demand. It’s so friggin’ convenient having my entire library on my hard-drive. Easy to switch games, don’t have to worry about swapping discs, shopping is easier. Also, people complain about not being able to resell the games but it has actually turned into a pro for me as I end up beating the games or replaying them as opposed to when I used to buy the games on disc and would resell the games too frequently. 

  • http://twitter.com/NBAKirkland NBA Kirkland (Nick)

    Nice, Resident Evil 4 for Xbox 360 for $20.  Now with achievements.  The original on GameCube got a 96 on metacritic, including 26 scores of 100!  Might be worth a playthrough if you haven’t played it yet…

  • http://twitter.com/mrcfield Chris Field

    Are you possibly able to include Windows Phone 7 Xbox Live upcoming releases too please?

    RE4 bought, also found a way to transfer all my content from the three previous dead 360’s I had to the slimmy. God Bless Amurrica.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=510397644 Kevin Viana

    No discount on the add-ons? I would have picked up the ilomilo add on if it was on sale

    • http://twitter.com/NathanielFrost1 Nathaniel Frost

      its like 2-3 dollars max at 240 points. I don’t think that add on is going to go any lower.

    Hey Major. Do you think you can maybe but an indicator next to games that are for Kinect?

    • http://twitter.com/mcmax3000 David

      There’s not much in the way of Kinect content in this update. The Sesame Street demo will be Kinect exclusive & Burnout: Crash supports Kinect but it is not mandatory. That’s it.

  • http://twitter.com/CraziedZombies Josh

    I wish there was games on demand Deal of The Weeks really would like to get a new H3  disc broke, also would like to get Star Wars The Force Unleashed and Batman AA.

    Why no Halo 3 ODST on Games on Demand? We need this.

    • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

      This comment cracks me up every time!

    • Anonymous

      Because they know you can get it used in the bargain bin for $5.00?

    • http://twitter.com/dog_eat_waffle Daniel Tain

      Why the hell do u want ODST? u know they will overcharge for it when u can easily pick it up for next to nothing, I think the main reason is you arnt old enough to buy it yourself and nobody will buy it for u, so u want to secretly download it without anybody knowing.

    Same crap at the same prices, not seen an actual deal in months.

    • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

      Both deals next week are new.  Not the best deals ever, and from what i’ve heard daggerdale isn’t worth $3, but Clash of Heroes for $5 off is a good deal.

  • Anonymous

    Glad to see some XBLA games up for the DOTW even if they are rehash deals. Kinda wish we’d see more XBLA addons go up for sale.  

    Probably going to get Burnout Crash if the demo is good.

  • http://twitter.com/chejser chaser

    Glad to see Mercury Hg for 400 points. I really enjoyed the previous games, although the level design looks a bit weak in Hg from what I’ve seen on youtube.

    @Ganadero:disqus Great, I see…I got a $829.99 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $599 that I only paid $78.24 for. http://goo.gl/BMciX

    Why are Australians being ripped off again?

    Resident Evil 4 is 1600 points for Americans.  But despite the Australian dollar being worth more than the US dollar, Australians are being charged AUD $29.99 for RE4.

    What gives, Microsoft?

    • http://twitter.com/DrGreenThumb_NZ Oliver Doel

      WTF RE4 isnt even Available in New Zeakland and Australia , it doesnt matter how much it costs we cant even buy it thanks to your shit australian rating system, we have R-18 cert for games here in NZ , why do we have to share the same dash as these noob aussies

      • S R

        It IS available in Australia.  But at an inflated price.

        Not sure where “New Zeakland” is.  Sounds like a small, third-world Pacific nation.

      Yeah, there are some price inconsistencies around the globe. I bought it here in The Netherlands for 1680msp yesterday.

    Do releasing Code Veronica and RE4 as GAMES ON DEMAND instead of ARCADE TITLES mean that we (xbox 360 users) will FINALLY get ODDWORLD STRANGER’S WRATH HD ?

      Think you need to get your facts straight Oliver. RE4’s been on the Australian Marketplace since last night.

      Don’t see why we “noob aussies” would have anything to do with it not being on the NZ Marketplace…

      Oliver,I called xbox support and they said that the New Zealand government wont allow us to download it.the call center Rep had no reason why it was released on PSN.So we miss out :(

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Crawford/718634151 Mike Crawford

        Thanks, Dylan. Very dissapointing, New Zealand. I’m in Korea at the moment, and I saw the Disc version for sale at the local games store. Unfortunately…It’s region locked.

      • http://twitter.com/DrGreenThumb_NZ Oliver Doel

        Thanks for info, The funny thing is its available on New Zealand PSN …. WTF this cant be right , Comon Xbox sort it out

    I got 280 points somehow and I’ve been waiting on some kind of super deal but i’m just gonna give up now and buy a stupid indie game..

    • Anonymous

      A stupid indie game ? Seriously ? It will be so if you don’t bother to get yourself informed to pick the right one.

      There are PSN games labeled here as “indie” cause devs don’t want to go the XBLA road. Ands there are stuff by indie devs wich is really good, fines than half of the actual XBLA catalogue right now. It’s just those are buried amongst piles of crappy apps and don’t feature achievements. then, if the lacking of achievements is what makes them stupid for you, well…

      Bottom line is, YES, there’s been long since XBLA SUPER CLEARANCE SALES (lots of titles, heavy reduced) but I can’t see where’s the difference between SUPER MEAT BOY (one of the top rated arcades) and, let’s say TEMPURA OF THE DEAD (take in account it’s like half the price) Achievements? Sure, SMB throws lots of them at you for just pressing start button ;p

    WHY IS RESIDENT EVIL 4 HD NOT AVAILABLE IN NEW ZEALAND STILL????????

    ITS ON NEW ZEALAND PLAYSTATION NETWORK , THIS IS BS :(

  • S R

    So I gave in and bought RE4, even at the stupidly marked-up price for Australians.

    The good news: it’s RE4.

    The bad news: this is a PATHETIC excuse for a port. There’s no way in hell this is “HD”. 

    Bad controls (even by Capcom standards), VERY low resolution, dim image, screwed-up aspect ratio, it’s got it all.

    This is NOT a remake or a remaster. Wouldn’t be surprised if the underlying engine was emulated.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_V4IXAZAEIPNZBWS3RPSCA53EL4 I_tickle_fat_kids

    What about the RE Remake, 2, and 3.. are they coming to the marketplace?  I would buy those in a heartbeat

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=566917025 Jeremy Benisek

    why can’t we click these game name and be linked to their game page? Why doesn’t Xbox give us this on xbox live with details about the game. It’s a real shame G4 and Xbox Live don’t work together and bring device testing and so much more free to xbox live gold.

  • S R

    Anyone else notice that Major is great at giving us Microsoft advertising material, but not so good at answering basic questions?

    For a “blog” it’s awfully lot like a Microsoft marketing site.

    Hasn’t Fallout; New Vegas got another set of non-location DLCs out on the 27th – Gun Runners Arsenal and another? The former mini-DLC has also got some achvmts bundled in with it (and a shed load of extra guns!).

     How come so many games on demand remain at such high prices? Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is still at $40.  Really?
