    Guess only DLC during Xbox House Party Promo *sigh* and no special sales either…

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

    I remember buying the season pass for Gears of War 3 to save me 33% off the first 4 DLC packages.
    And now the first two are on offer for all.
    Fable 3 DLC is old now and should be this price all the time.

    • http://twitter.com/karlcramer Karl Cramer

      And you’ve had it for months before they did.

    • Anonymous

      On offer…for a week.

      If this was a permanent price change you might have a complaint to make.  But a few lucky hold-outs scoring a couple of discounted packs doesn’t really have much of an impact on the value of your own deals.

    The Traitor’s Keep Quest Pack used to glitch the Fable 3 savegames… anyone knows if lionhead released a patch for that ?

    • Anonymous

      Well, even if they haven’t it’s still worth it.  At worst you’ll just have to stagger understone DLC with traitor’s keep (DL the first then when you’ve completed the main quest line DL the other.)

    Alan Wake! Seriously excited for that one! :D

    You insult me with your DotW offerings!  Haha not really, but these are pretty bad.  But I guess to be expected during the House Party promotion.

      I hope that was sarcasm….

        I hope so too. They next to never give decent deals, and they do it on purpose. I just buy stuff of psn/sen and steam now.

        • Lee Rayson

          :P no it was not, eventhough a deal may be crappy to you because you may have it or for a game you are not interested but to someone else it maybe THE deal for them

    Major, any news on the Gamertag recycling?

  • http://twitter.com/williamronholm Anonymous

    Solid couple weeks of content. Just beat Gangstas in Space for Saints 3 and while it was loads more enjoyable than the first pack it was about just as short. A few of my friends will like the couple Gears add-ons going on sale. Lastly, SSX!!!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=537442886 Abel Diaz

    Why have the last few-several DotW been DLC focused? Not that there’s anything wrong with DLC, but I probably won’t purchase Guardian Heroes or Iron Brigade or Joe Danger until they go on sale. None of those have been on sale yet, so I’m waiting.

    • Anonymous

      DLC needs a little more help right now?  It probably makes more sense if you have XBL’s sales figures to provide context on trends and all that.

    • http://thetjhzone.blogspot.com Tylerh1701

      Also possible because they think sales on any stand-alone XBLA games are probably going to cannibalize the House Party promotion.  And usually Xbox takes it’s promotions pretty seriously. 

      Just a guess though, but it seems like DotW during special promotion (like House Party, DotW, etc) are usually pretty terrible.

    FIFA Street? Cool.

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

    What a sparse list. And the deal this week is terrible.

    I mean come on, Fable 3 is old now and you couldn’t even be bothered to put ALL the DLC on sale? Just a few bits, some of which are on the disc? Who’s still playing by now, anyway? There weren’t even that many playing at the time!

    Fable is a dead series, MS and Lionhead just haven’t realised it yet.

    Oh, and if you even consider that on-disc Gears weapon skin pack I would personally like to kick you in the balls. Trust, me it’ll be less painful.

    Fable 3 needs a proper burial.   Molyneaux was obviously intoxicated when setting the guidelines of the QA process.   F3 was a pre-order in this household.  When the missus took her character online it switched genders and lost everything.   It’s still on the shelf, but will likely never be played again.  Epic can take a flying leap too… their customer service is horrid, and I never want to buy a premium edition of anything of theirs ever again.   It’s like this period is the deals on the chaff of the xbl marketplace.   Lionshead and Epic both going bankrupt would make me happy.   Unlikely because of Unreal Engine, I know… but maybe someone someday will buy Epic, and put it’s namesake out of misery.  IF Microsoft decides to cling to the Fable IP, they need to part-terms with Lionhead like they did with Bungie.  I’m sure 343 Studios could do a better job…time to expand the department beyond Halo sequels.

    Here’s hoping for a Mass Effect 2 DLC sale during the week of March 5th.

  • ಠ_ಠ

    I’m so glad the ELITE playlist in COD is barely populated.

    Wait, I thought the Revelations DLC was supposed to be 1200 points? Ah well, hope it stays at 800 :D

  • James Eichinger

     I just want to see Crysis drop to $15 for a week. I WANT TO GIVE YOU MY MONEY! :)

    • http://sevenupdate.com sevenalive

      lol I bought Crysis 2 years ago for the PC at $8.50 for steam.

  • Anonymous

    I’d like to see some of the Games on demand go on 50%+ off sales. They never go on sale. It would be good competition to the used game stores at those prices.

  • Anonymous

    Why doesn’t MS drop their prices RADICALLY on XBLive? I mean slashing a zero at the end of each title. ;) Then suddenly MS can compete with the most successful online stores in the world, iStore and Android Market. ;-) A lot of the content is embarrasingly expensive, and I can usually pivk up a new (!) or used DVD at the local store at a fraction of the download price. I thought Games on Demand should make games cheaper, but they are a LOT more expensive, sadly. It’s 2012, Microsoft.Come on, please! :)

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

       With the Xbox 720 coming you’ll never be able to play used games anymore..lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/kev.grosvenor Kev Grosvenor

    Still waiting for a deal on the Black Ops map packs – 1200 MS points is way too much for them now

    When is Xfinity coming!?

    i keep forgetting all these dates are american time (obviously the best time)…
    looks like i wont be playing alan wake tonight. :(

    Well I would complain about iPlayer still not being available – but I’ve just bought a Samsung Smart TV that has iplayer, netflix, muzu, crackle – anything I cared about that was offered on Xbox Live.  Looks like I don’t need Gold anymore.

    • http://twitter.com/Byyys Byyys

      It’s all about greed… Microsoft insisted xbox users have gold before being able to use apps.
      Hence why bbc said no!, It’s most likely the reason behind it being delayed on the xbox.

    I want to get the Fable 3 DLCs (Traitor’s Keep and Understone) but I’ve read so much about the bugs and glitches :(
    I have a new copy of Fable 3 that I bought and started to play about two~three months ago, I don’t want to put my saved game in danger, is it safe to download any of these? thanks!

    800 MS Points for The Lost Archive DLC, 800 MS Points for some puzzle solving DLC.  Assassins Creed Revelations was awful

  • Anonymous

    ACR was short and it was more like a DLC addon than a full game, now they make it worse by releasing stupid puzzle solving DLC.  Give up Ubisoft, you have ruined the franchise.  You are becoming another Peter Molyneux.

     huh?

  • Anonymous

    Also Major, is it at all possible that we can have a release schedule that’s a little more comprehensive?  I know Soul Calibur V has a little DLC coming out in the very near future and I don’t believe Space Marine has had any representation on these lists, (even though it has had a pretty extensive lineup of DLC and, at the very least, an extant multiplayer community.)  The same goes for last year’s hidden gem of the XBLA, Section 8 Prejudice, which I don’t recall even making it on your list of arcade releases.

  • Robert M

    Any reason there was no mention of yesterday’s mandatory update?
