    SONIC CD IS 400 AND COMING OUT TOMORROW OMGOMGOMG

    I’M THROWING MICROSOFT POINTS AT THE SCREEN AND NOTHING IS HAPPENING

    • http://twitter.com/Sumhydroponic38 David Shaffer

      Sounds like a great deal to me. Day one. Now if only they will fix the season pass problem with General RAAM’s DLC for Gears 3.

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin Turbo

        Is this one on this disc as well?

        • http://twitter.com/LOCUST_FOREVER duckmouth

          2GB download.

  • http://twitter.com/BuBBeR BuBBeR

    How LA Noire will work on games on demand? Just one download i assume… can you answer for us?

  • http://twitter.com/BuBBeR BuBBeR

    How LA Noire will work on games on demand? Just one download i assume… can you answer for us?

  • Anonymous

    LA Noire’s GoD release next week should hopefully put to rest those theories that Games on Demand can’t do multi-disc games.

    • Anonymous

      Maybe not the theory (my theory) that companies arent willing or have little incentive to do so.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah, that theory is still 100% valid & in many cases, probably 100% correct.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XOTBJKUR4IW74YLQH2LHQTE2BU Kairu

    Looking forward to the countdown to 2012 (hopefully it’s a lot better than the “fan appreciation” sale) Major do you know what’s happening with Manga Entertainment?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XOTBJKUR4IW74YLQH2LHQTE2BU Kairu

    @Bennijin … Fail

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin Turbo

      There IS a reply button. But sod off, I’ve been WAITING for this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=574522844 Tony Kemp

    Is the Fruit Ninja update still happening?

  • http://twitter.com/Sumhydroponic38 David Shaffer

    Wait, Trine 2 is coming next week? Loved Trine on PS3, I may have to give this a whirl.

  • http://twitter.com/GreenMistt Miller

    The UK dashboard is taking forever to update. Deal of the week isn’t showing, nor is the Gears DLC. Nor is the YouTube app available to download yet, even though friends from other countries are on it. The UK division of Microsoft sure are lazy, but when it comes to taking our money they jump all over it. 

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin Turbo

      Youtube’s on my UK dash, used it recently too. Dunno what’s up your end, maybe it’s because I was in the preview.

      • Anonymous

        Yes, you having access to the YouTube app is because you were in the preview program. We’re still getting to test some of the video apps before they launch to the public. If you go to the Connect site, it has the details.

  • http://twitter.com/Sumhydroponic38 David Shaffer

    Hey Major, any word on the Bastion DLC?

  • b knight

    Gears 3 Season Pass is broken… another EPIC FAIL

    • Victor Cortes

      Care to explain? I was planning on getting that.

      • http://twitter.com/BuBBeR BuBBeR

        The Raam Shadow DLC isn`t working, the game warn you that the content is available to the season pass owner, but you have to pay again to download…. hope they fix it today

    Glad to see a Deal of the week for hardcore gamers! Keep the good deals coming. :)

  • http://twitter.com/chejser chaser

    I’m still waiting for Capsized to be released in December. Hopefully it wasn’t pushed back.

  • Anonymous

    Just saw Rock of Ages will be next week DoTW – another win! :D

  • Victor Cortes

    Now that’s a good DoTW! Already have Hard Corps (highly recommended), but will finally pick up RS!

    And will definitely get Joe Danger. Held off on that one on PSN. I’m thrilled to have the better version on XBLA.

    And Sonic CD just 400! That’s the cherry on the cake.

  • Anonymous

    Very nice DOTW.  Glad to see some different games on there.  Good job.  Sonic CD at 400 points is another win as well.  

  • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

    Bravo on the sales!  Bangai-O and Rock of ages next week for sure, and considering Guwange and Radiant Silvergun. 

    Looking forward to Countdown to 2012!

  • http://twitter.com/ansys1977 Ricardo Baptista

    LA Noire!!! The first multi-disc game on demand! Yes, now let’s bring Mass Effect 2, and Halo 3 ODST, please…

    • http://twitter.com/Thorpe Luke

      Expect to pay a lot more than what you can get it at retail, though.

      • Anonymous

        At the MSRP, which most major retailers sell it at.

    • http://twitter.com/ahmedmandy Ahmed Mandy

      And Dead Space 2, please!

  • Anonymous

    why has REZ HD never received the DOTW treatment??? real shame… waiting for it to drop the price

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin Turbo

      That’s true, it was on the very first set of Xbox Live Black Friday deals a few years ago for 500. That set of deals was US-only, this blog’s comment section pretty much IGNITED with rage.

      It was pretty much the catalyst that led to the worldwide deals we see now.

    • Anonymous

      It has, you missed it.

      • Anonymous

        hmm… dont remember about it. and according to the user under my comment, it was only US only (im from europe)… so, a worldwide REZ deal is long overdue

    • Anonymous

      So, you can get it dirt-cheap on disc format along with lumines live and E4 and yet you want it to litter your hard drive ?

      I respect everyone else’s opinions but life is something more than seen the glass half empty all the time. No matter how does Microsoft, people will still complain even if there are options to what they want…

      • Anonymous

        1st of all, i didnt know that rez was on a physical compilation; 2nd of all, the PAL version is expensive on ebay; 3rd, rez is small in size, so it doesnt take up much hdd space anyway; 4th, all disc based compilations spin anyway inside the drive, even though you have installed them on the hdd. the noise is unbearable; 5th of all, i dont take your comments too seriously, because youre clearly hired by micro$oft to troll the forums and defend them. i know jobs are hard to come by, so not judging.

        • Anonymous

          You nailed it dude… microsoft hires so many guys from Spain to do that; we are that lucky! BTW our LIVE service is the best and cheaper arround, on par with italians “fo sho” :D

          You didn’t know it existed but now you do, so my “trolling” served a purpose. People call it constructive criticism. I’d like to be there when you meet your 1st online troll hehe…

          And BTW there is no such thing as PAL version of Qbed (E4, Lumines and Rez) I got mine from canada and it works on my european console.

          Uninformed people are so amusing, specially the ones turning against you just for trying to help. Don’t worry pal I don’t take you seriously at all too because you are clearly not awesome.

          • Anonymous

            im not “awesome”? what, are you 5 years old?!? and who do you think you are to consider yourself “informed”? and what was so constructive about your criticism? you criticized me for asking for a DOTW on REZ HD, when this game received a DOTW like 4-5 years ago. You acted arrogantly and know-it-all, and if you didnt like my reply, then i can also say that i didnt like your reply, which i think was out of place. but im pretty sure that you always feel right no matter what, so no need to continue with you this discussion. go play some games, grow up, and dont act online as a spoiled child. comprende?

  • http://twitter.com/MezD92 Mike

    How about put on Mortal Kombat DLC for DOTW?

    Sonic CD 400msp?? SOLD. ;D

    • Anonymous

      That price is a total steal! My favorite Sonic game. Glad they’ve included both soundtracks as well!

  • Joshua Chrislip

    I just checked on the letter from the guy about the new update. He talks about beacons and a couple of other things but fails to mention anything about YouTube! I have seen no info about it being available. So to those who don’t know about it, go to the video section and next to the big ad in the middle on the right of it there is a tab that says YouTube. You can then download the app from there. Just letting those know who can’t find it or didn’t know it was already up.

    • Anonymous

      Were you in the preview program? I don’t think the YouTube app is available to everyone yet. People in the preview program are getting access to some of the new video content early to test out the apps.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin Turbo

      For some, YouTube isn’t available in the UK. A friend of mine who wasn’t in the preview can’t access it yet, nor could a poster below whom has now changed his post.

      I wondered if that preview had something to do with it.

    • Anonymous

      i just want miro$oft to restore the “full games” filter in the “my games” section…. its gone, and having to browse 200 demos to get to the games i bought on XBLA is a pain “down there”

    • http://twitter.com/Dninja Scott Hickman

      Some of the Video content will be rolled out over time, iPlayer, 4OD and so on for the UK won’t be available till sometime in January I hear.

  • http://twitter.com/kylemac6 kyle mchenry

    There’s a Marvel avatar category coming next week? About f’ing time. I’ve wanted some superhero avater stuff since avatars were introduced and there’s barely any. GL and Batman recently brought some.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin Turbo

      IT’S MAHVEL BAYBEE!

        I need a Magneto helmet, it would complement my curly mustache perfectly.

  • Anonymous

    Hold the phone…new Gunstringer DLC?! It’s a great day for all.

  • twist_of_fate69

    The original Sonic CD itself (even with ONE of its soundtracks) would be an absolute steal for 400 points. The fact that there’s both soundtracks, additional features AND is NOT a lazy port/emulation unlike the other Mega Drive releases makes this probably one of the best Xbox Live releases at least in a long time in terms of value for money. I’m impressed!

  • Anonymous

    Now that’s an E·X·C·E·L·L·E·N·T deal of the week, no complains allowed.

    Games from top arcade (the real thing) devs such as Treasure, Cave and ARC system… all killer no filler; you can say it’s not your cup of tea (it isn’t mine either) but those titles have pedigree.

    Already got hardcorps (back when it was 800 msp) really good game, beware the dificulty may be beyond some people’s tastes. May get Guwage at that price and Rock of Ages for sure.

    Relally looking forward Countdown deals…

    Is there any chance of Axis and Allies coming to Xbox marketplace. I have been hoping ever since they released Risk. An excellent strategy game that would be a great addition to online play. Anyone that has played the board game knows what I am saying.
