Today you can save on the following Gears of War 3 content
Deal, Gears of War By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson
Sweet! Will be buying the Season pass! Thanks Major and the Xbox LIVE team.
Will be eagerly pushing F5 at 1:00pm
This is a punch to the gut for all your faithful Gears fans… we pay full price up front, as a way to get the DLC cheaper, and now, BEFORE all the DLC is even out, it is FURTHER reduced in price! I am happy for everyone else, because its great content, but it really does not encourage loyal customers… this will be the last time I buy content early on the marketplace… been burnt too many times…
i agree. im pissed.
I learnt this lesson a while back. Waited on Radiant Silvergun, Fruit Ninja and this to come down in price before a purchase. I will always wait for reductions in the future, because you are almost guaranteed to get a good deal later on.
I honestly didn’t think that season passes would be getting this treatment as well, but there you go, even more chances to save.
You paid a premium to get the season pass content when it came out, rather than nearly 2 months later. You have no right to complain.
Congradulations, you have buyers remorse, get in line with the rest of humanity
Nope, I don’t see how this is a punch to anyone really. Let me explain my reasoning. You got to play the first DLC 2-3 months, and the second a month in advance. Most who didn’t get the season pass but are fans got at least one of the two DLCs so even if they get this they’re paying what you would have; 1800+800 from one DLC (so maybe even more). This discount is only good for people that would have never got it, weren’t hardcore gears fans or are really late to the gears party (christmas) which multiplayer is already half dead. (compared to the other games and first weeks). I myself bought the 1st DLC, but skipped the second, so if I get this I’m already spending 400 more msp’s than you.
The second actually came earlier to those who didn’t have season pass! Season pass holders were asked to pay for it and realised something was up so they waited! Those without season pass would have paid anyway and got it before the rest!
I agree this is messed up! I bought the season pass on day 1 like many others, but I bought the gold lancer a few days ago!
Seriously 1 good deal to show loyal customers that Microsoft care is not too much to ask for! This is the Nintendo route! Cater to new customers constantly until everybody has defected!
Good things happen to those who wait. Have patience and get good deals.
And if you wait a year to buy the Gears of War 3 disc, it would’ve been $20.
It’s the chance you take purchasing anything at full price. You either pay full price and risk it being cheaper later or you wait and risk it never going on sale.
That’s no different than any other thing in the world.
I just bought a copy of Saints Row 3 a couple of weeks ago at full price and now it’s $40 pretty much everywhere here (I’m in Canada and the week after Christmas is our big sale time).
On the flip side, I waited on Kinect Sports 2 and Rayman: Origins and scored them both for $30 off this week (plus I grabbed the Forza 4 Season Pass a few days ago because I waited on it too).
Bottom Line: sometimes these things will work in your favour, sometimes they won’t.
You’re talking as if this deal is permanent. It’s just for ONE day. Nothing to cry about here.
Already have the pass… first day I got the game too… Too bad I paid full price too. Well worth it tho
My little brother ignores me and buys the Fallout New Vegas DLC before it dropped. I tell my other brother that the Gears 3 DLC is going on sale, multiple times, but he bought Raam Shadow last night anyway. Why do my brothers keep ignoring me?
Somebody, somewhere wrote something about fools and their money.
Bought the only Avatar item I will ever buy – The Golden Lancer.
I will wear it proudly forever because it will get delisted the day after tomorrow due to the ridiculous no gun policy (I mean what’s next? Lightsabers and other fantasy weapons?).
Won’t buy the rest of the 3 guns because my Avatar can only carry one weapon at a time anyway and this one is the best.
Thanks for the deal and the one on the weapon skins as well!
That stupid policy should be only for kids accounts and not for adult ones
If it’s 25% today it will be 50% eventually. I can wait. People still play Gears 1 multiplayer.
reimbursement for those who have paid the pass at 2400 points
Of course – that’s what happens in any sale, right?
there was a huge difference in time between mortal kombat release and it’s recent season pass deal but gears of war 3 has only been out about 3 months. you guys give away gow3 season pass maps for free, screw up the raam’s shadow release for season pass owners and now this! it’s on now! ᕦ(ò_óˇᕤ
o man i hate this game i like the gold lancer do
ok, tmrw is cod deal. i want COD Classic 50% off. I LOVE arcade games. GOW season pass is really nice deal, but I think last countdown 2011 was better. I remember that I bought a lot of content including LIMBO for 800 MSP.
I kinda wanna buy the gold lancer just because Microsoft is enacting a fa66y policy of banning guns or gun-like objects for avatars at the start of the year because they are a bunch of PC liberal pu55ies.
Funny how everything the past few days was at least 50-60% off.. not with the season pass oh no!
Remember, the Season Pass is already giving you a discount on the Gears3 dlc. So this is stacking discount on a discount.
I wouldn’t consider giving a game’s developer all my money at once for an obvious lower price a discount.
When I buy extra rolls of toilet paper instead of just one I don’t think of that as a discount, I would have to ask my butt for its opinion.
If you have a butt
Oh yea for $22.50 I’m in.
Just bought the season pass! I don’t like how its 1800ms points cause I had to buy $30 worth of Microsoft points so now I have an extra 600 points with nothing to buy..
Then wait till something shows up.. Be smart and hold on to them points.. Half off a 1200 point game is 600 points.. So there may be a game in future deals you like. Be smarter then the system.
I’ll wait for a 50% price drop.
Remember it was already a 33% savings and now with an additional 25% savings on the reduced price it comes to a 50% savings overall. Idk what you’re waiting for or complaining about.
I think he is just making a comment on a blog.
Remember guys Xbox is removing weapon content from the market place that lancer is a steel at that price if you picked up a fake one in stores for your sellf for desplay, you would be paying 10x the price tag so for the aimaition and time these guys put in this item it’s well worth picking up for a day without starbucks and going for McDonald’s coffee.
Season pass guys sorry but that’s how it is sometimes its mean but it’s the way the world works sooner or later you will figure it out and say “do I really need this right, now and the anser will be no, so Microsoft how they do marketing will find a way to make a buck and drop to prove to a price we will pay like some apps out there.. Do you get the picture be smarter then the system be a smarter consumer if you want to take the system down..”
I agree with your rambling, I think. With GOTY editions of every game coming out, I can’t really see the use of a season pass.
1800 is a great deal. It’s a discount on an existing discount so it is nice.
Wow, what backward-ass stuff here. No Hammerburst or Reg.Lancer discounts, but the only gun available is the Golden Lancer? Microsoft, why do you always do it WRONG?! The gun items are going to be removed and yet the only thing you offer was the Golden Lancer. You could had been making more money today, but NOPE!
And me personally, I don’t want to get the Seasons Pass, I just want the RAAM Shadow DLC only, so where’s the discount on that? Better yet, what about the Commando DLC? Give us an option to get either the Season Pass or the other DLCs as stand alone discounts. I don’t care if the price is higher than what the Seasons Pass offers, some people don’t want everything. C’mon!
And the price for the in-game weapon skin pack is STILL a joke. That thing should be 600 if you want the truth.
Gun AVATAR items are being removed, not gun DLC for games. Please research before berating people for “doing it wrong” when YOU’RE doing it wrong.
hell yeah already bought raams shadow so it defeats the purpose but im getting the season pass
really need some help finding out where the 3rd patch to Nascar the game 2011 is. It was supposed to be out like a week ago. The publishers are claiming it is in Xboxes hands. Would really like to play it over the holiday weekend with the knew update. Please look into this.
Pfff if there would be a way to buy the Lancer with a german account, but looks like u dont want our money
what time dos this go off in the uk?
Between 9 and 12 usually.
thanks but i was too late to get the weapon skins for 1800 msp
Cannot buy the Lancer, either on Chrome or Firefox. Wonder if they already started the ban hammer?!
CoD Deals are either not all up yet or some magnificent trolling.
CoD4 Variety Map Pack: 400 again holy heck does anyone even play this anymore
CoD4: 25% off whatever your Games on Demand pricing is, whatever it is that’ll still be too much.
I just bought the Gold Lancer for my Avatar yesterday.. Can i get the sale price please !!!
