    Australia Here… So No mortal kombat deal and two crappy arcade items i
    wouldn’t pay 50 points for… Sorry if it seems negative, But after the
    great start (bastion) i have hurt feelings…

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

    hmmm. No offence, but whatever team is in charge of these ‘deals’ really needs to take a leaf out of Steam’s book.

    The dashboard is riddled with ads and we pay for gold, so it’s not like you can’t afford to take a loss on deals for once. Two of the ‘deals’ so far have been on offer several times this year, so please put something new on offer.

    Steam’s free, ad free, and offers the best deals and a greater variety. Yeah Xbox has; Youtube, Facebook and all these apps. But you can get them free on your PC aswell.

      Well said…

      Agreed. Steam makes me want to got back to PC gaming. PS3 / Steam integration for Portal 2 opened my eyes to what I had been missing. As soon as I’m done with my Xbox backlog, I’m bootcamping windows and going back to PC. Cheaper games, free online, better resolutions… the writing is on the walls. Too bad Steam doesn’t have more Mac games.

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

      Indeed, and apparently these apps are a gold privilege… privileges I barely use.

  • http://twitter.com/PrestonNorthLad David Casey

    Pay for Xbox Gold – get up to half price games.
    Pay for PSN – get free games.

    Come on.

      Unless they changed the rules recently, you dont get any free games, as those games are not yours. You are just renting those games. Once your PSN+ subscription ends, you can kiss all those “free” games goodbye.

      • Lee Rayson

        gotta love how people seem to believe paying for PSN+ is giving you free games it more like an long term rental

        • Rob adams

          Yeah, I pay £10 a month to Boomerang and get “free” games ;)

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

          PSN+ does give you better special offers than PSN already offers though.
          But in fairness you’re spending more money to spend less money…

          Also these deals aren’t even Gold-only.

      • Michael Gilliam

        Since I generally play a game and then move on, I fail to see where this is a problem.  Once a game is completed, there is normally very little compelling me to go back to it.  There are a few exceptions to that rule, but they are rare and worth paying for.

        The apps are nice, but I bought the system to play games.

      • Anonymous

        I think they occasionally give out games that you can keep (very rarely but I believe it has happened) but in general, yes, I agree. If I’m paying to get those “free” games, I expect to get to keep them.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_M2GAI5UEWQPOI6L4UIKE3VSYC4 Lucan

          Yeah, when things f-up.

    If only I had MK …

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jan-Vaclavik/100000506187042 Jan Václavík

    Todays deals are pretty bad.
    You should throw in more titles. Even some_old_stuff_no-one_would_buy would make the deals look better. You are having fighting game deals, why not throw in MvC2, Soulcalibur, Street Fighter II HF or something? Having 5+ games on sale would look that much better.

  • http://profiles.google.com/harrypottersdaddy Harry Potter

    After the horrendous black friday xbox live deals, I thought there was no way future deals could get any worse. I guess I’m mistaken.

  • Anonymous

    That’s what I was waiting for! Was hoping the MK characters would go on sale. Thanks!

  • http://twitter.com/ENich1 E.Nich

    ONLY Deadliest Warrior as a stand alone game? REALLY? It would be great to offer more fighting games in days like these. Anyways, I guess it’s good for people who own MK9.

  • http://twitter.com/mightyfiregoat mighty goat

    Pass. nothing so far has made me spend cash on points & its looking like that’s not going to change anytime soon. if there is a massive christmas eve/day blowout on xbla games then I might be tempted or I might just stick with my f2p games on pc and buy extra content for well supported games. Imo ALL xbla games are over priced when compared to the pc versions. we get sub par versions of games that have all support killed in the first few months of release while the pc versions end up having double the content for a lower price. when is Microsoft going to stop hindering the progress of xbla tittles & start pleasing the xbla gaming community?!?!? more support + more content + lower prices + more sales = more money & happy gamers!! Microsoft you need to set the benchmark for digital gaming and stop being the donkey running with horses!!!!!!!!

  • http://twitter.com/AntaraelDulacre Antarael Dulacre

    As I said before none of the Items available in Germnay so NO deal today at all…thx…and the leaked list appears to be right….so yeah can save all my points for other deals…maybe dotw next week will have some…but I doubt it..2011 was a terrible deal year…(speaking of dotw deals not the special sales)

    • http://twitter.com/ENich1 E.Nich

      I’ve recently got a Xbox 360, so I don’t know the rest of the year, but dotw of last week (japan finest) was very good imo.

    You call these a deal?

    Once Again… LAME. Steam is soooo stomping on your sad excuse for an Holiday sale, and they will get my money instead. Go to Steam Store page and see for yourselves.

    • http://twitter.com/CAPP360 Brian

      You cant really compare a gaming giant like Steam who cares about gamers to a company whose only concern is the bottom line.

  • http://twitter.com/mightyfiregoat mighty goat

    if the “leaked list of deals” is true then Ms really won’t be getting my money. most of the deals are for dlc and getting a reduction only on dlc is not a good deal in my eyes. what about all the people who don’t own & have no interest in owning those games? if kinect fruit ninja or whatever is really the christmas day deal thats pathetic!!! 2012 for me is looking like the year I really will be giving up on the 360. it really isn’t “the gamers console”. funny 

  • Hugoku

    Well, this debunks the supposedly “leaked” list.

    Although I was expecting SF III, it gives me hope that some Bastion-caliber stuff will show up in the coming days.

    Season pass deals though? I guess it is great for those that are interested in those games.
    I would certainly jump on the GoW3 season pass, although I would be upset that it gets a discount so soon, If I had already bought it.

    In fact, I would never expect them to be on sale.

    • http://twitter.com/AntaraelDulacre Antarael Dulacre

      No it doesn’t…
      1. SF III was announced for tomorrow…todays deal wasn’t listed and I can think of why…since it was posted on german news sites first, we don’t get any of the deals here because none of the items are available on the german marketplace….for today we got nothing…

      • Hugoku

        That’s what I get for not paying attention! It indeed skipped a day. So YAY for SFIII!

        You don’t get the Deadliest Warrior deals either?

        • http://twitter.com/AntaraelDulacre Antarael Dulacre

          Yep if the list stands correct…SF3 tomorrow…

          And nope neither of the deals are on the marketplace…nor is the first deadly warrior, duke nukem, doom, dead rising contents and arcade games, crackdown, ninja gaiden, the first two gears games etc etc…germany sucks gamewise…

    • Anonymous

      Or MS changed it up a bit just so the list could be debunked.

  • http://twitter.com/VforVashaw Austin Vashaw

    Awesome, I’ve been waiting for a drop on the overpriced MK pack. Thanks!

    • http://twitter.com/MKTheory John Doe

      $5 per character is overpriced? Even when the Season Pass deal gives you four characters for the price of three? Oh lawdy lawl!

  • http://twitter.com/VforVashaw Austin Vashaw

    Awesome, I’ve been waiting for a drop on the overpriced MK pack. Thanks!

  • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

    Really hope it’s not Street Fighter tonight, why not lump that game in with these ones? (Fighting games)

    Anyways, we shall see.  I need me some Toy Soldiers: Cold War discounts!!!

  • CyberSkull

    The only daily deal that has impressed me so far is for Bastion, and I already bought it when it came out.

    • http://www.facebook.com/anthony.dangelo Anthony D’Angelo

      Same here! 

  • http://twitter.com/JRish923 Rishi Maharban

    Ummmm these 12 days of deals simply put SUCK….

  • http://twitter.com/MKTheory John Doe

    Out of all Fighting games you guys picked the Shittiest Warrior. A game that plays like it should be in the Indie section. And why only two Fighting games? No SoulCalibur? No MvC2 for the hundredth time?
    Fire whoever is doing these deals and let me run circles around this company.
    Here, I’ll give you an idea free of charge (assuming the leak is not true).
    Redeem yourselves by making a “Beat ‘em Up” theme.

    Castle Crashers, D&D Daggerdale, Dishwasher, Dishwasher VS, Final Fight Double Impact, Turtles In Time RS, TMNT Arcade, Scott Pilgrim VS The World, Unbound Saga, X-Men.
    I know I’m missing a few more of old school gems but that’s a start…and I promise you’ll have more appreciated consumers than disappointed ones.
    But what do I know? I’m just a Gamer.

    I really hope the leaked list is not true, I would hate to believe that Microsoft is this stupid to have a lackluster Fighting Game theme while leaving out Street Fighter III for tomorrow or any time soon for that matter.

    • http://twitter.com/MezD92 Mike

      Why would they rediscount games that has already been on DOTW like 3 weeks ago? Turtles in Time RS has been removed off the marketplace months ago.

  • http://twitter.com/MezD92 Mike

    Why couldn’t you guys make each MK character a discount? I just want Freddy

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

    Fantastic deal on all four MK DLC characters, just because you’re not interested in MK doesn’t make this deal bad. Potentially the best fighter of 2011.

    At least DLC for an XBLA game is also going sale like we’ve been asking for. Even if the game sucks, it’s a start.

  • http://twitter.com/mightyfiregoat mighty goat

    I have a fantastic idea for a deal!!!! a patch and new texas heat seasons for full house poker! yeah you know that game!!! its the one 1 vs 100 got slaughtered for & the one  Ms tried to label as the new “social game” on xbl. Ms can’t even support their own games so there isn’t any hope >_>  

  • http://twitter.com/mightyfiregoat mighty goat

    and the season pass IS THE CHARACTER PACK not the online pass that people are claiming it is. 

  • http://twitter.com/mightyfiregoat mighty goat

    Pass. nothing so far has made me spend cash on points & its looking like that’s not going to change anytime soon. if there is a massive christmas eve/day blowout on xbla games then I might be tempted or I might just stick with my f2p games on pc and buy extra content for well supported games.

      Yeah – was thinking about Portal but then I saw it on Steam for $2.49. It’s $5 now which works out to about $5.09 Canadian. 400 MS American points is about $5. The same 400 points in Canada costs $6.20. Oh wait, but Portal is 600 points which is $9.20. I took my $4 and bought myself a Happy Meal because MS makes me so friggin sad sometimes.

    I never understand a sale price on a game released a while ago as far as any season pass. Why isn’t the pass just permanently discounted? In two years are you going to have sales on MW3 stuff like that?

        That is an eternity with this sort of thing. By the way, I was mainly talking just about the fact that MK is now an OLD game. The way fighting games go, they will have MK DX soon as fighting games in general are so piss poor and such a low ceiling as far as what is expected.

    I hope we get some of these: Dungeon Defenders, Iron Brigade, Orcs Must Die, Resi 4, Resi Code Veronica X, Toy Soldiers Cold War, Crimson Alliance, Half-Minute Hero, Guardian Heroes, DeathSmiles2 X (which is Christmas themed).
    That are only few examples of the games, which GAMERS would love to see with reduced prices around Christmas.

    Sadly, we probably won’t get any of these. :’(

      It would take a Christmas miracle for those games to go on sale at a decent price.

      Which means Xbox “loop” AKA Xbox 720 is guaranteed a 2013 Holiday release.  Though, if MS really wants my money they can take it in 2012.
