    Anyone unhappy with those 2 weeks deals vote this message up

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=543573242 Robert Tonkli

    Yeah for Sine Mora. Being waiting for that one to go on sale.

    • Thânia Santos

      it was 2 week ago on sale with the special sale app (only available in a few countries)
      So, I already own that one,
      but great game!!

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

  • http://twitter.com/BuBBeR BuBBeR

    MAx payne 3 will be one big 14gb file?

    • Hugoku

      Not necessarily. Not sure what the actual size of the discs are, but sometimes some game assets are duplicated across multiple platters or even a single one (to speed up access).

    • David

      Larger, I have it and I want to say 15.6 or 17gb

  • MilkyTee

    The deals are definitely an improvement, keep it up.

    :)

    • Hugoku

      Thanks for the info!
      I assume for these deals we don’t need an XBLG account, correct?
      There is a lot of back catalog stuff that is very much worth getting if you have not done so.

      • MilkyTee

        No idea to be honest, but generally you only need a Gold sub to avail of DOTW offers.

        Any other sales in between are usually available to all.

        Also, Stacking @ 300 points is amazing value, I implore anyone who’s on the fence to snatch that right up.

        • Lee Rayson

          Stacking i aint got but im buying it purely because of the price :D

          • MilkyTee

            Well worth it, I promise you.
            Anything from the geniuses at Double Fine is, for that matter.

          • Lee Rayson

            Yeah i loved costume quest, wish they do a number 2, i never got trenched because of the whole issue with the title so i lost interest but i wanted stacking i just thought 1200 was bit much at the time

          • MilkyTee

            I just got Trenched(Iron Brigade) the other day and I’m still loving it, it’s a great laugh if you’ve got mates who play it too. And it’s been permanently reduced to 800 points, a steal IMO.

            And good luck with Costume Quest 2; Double Fine have never made a sequel in their entire existence!

          • http://twitter.com/CsquadUk We Are Csquad!

            I loved costume quest and hope we do eventually get a sequel or new dlc, same as iron brigade. I’m not seeing these deals on the beta dash and the recently reduced section isn’t on the beta dash <— has that been updated for september yet?

          • MilkyTee

            No, I don’t think so, you’re going to have to manually search for them.

            The deals don’t show up of their own accord on the beta dash. Not sure if that’s going to still be the case when it rolls out to the general public.

          • SirOmNomNom

            To access the deals on the beta dash, you have to scroll over to games, then press browse games, on Featured go to sales & specials + and voila, you have the Deal of the Week, the Back to School Sale and Recently Reduced.

            I’m not sure if it’s just my connection but I can only view page 1 of the Back to School Sale while the other pages have an infinite loading circle and the Recently Reduced has the same loading circle for August’s price deductions.
            Is it my connection or could it be the fact that I’m also a dash beta tester?

          • MilkyTee

            Technically, you can’t access Sales and Specials+ where I’m from so the deals don’t show up anywhere.

            I still DLed the app off another account and it seems to function OK but it’s still a pain to boot up rather than having the deals pop up right on the home page.

            And yeah, I’d say it’s the beta code at fault, it still seems to be a little rough despite the numerous updates we’ve gotten!

          • http://twitter.com/CsquadUk We Are Csquad!

            rocket riot has had its online servers taken down.

    • Lee Rayson

      Dammit i need loads of points

    • http://twitter.com/dawkins_ricardo Ricardo Dawkins

      I need points.. just 1800 left!!!

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

      thanks for the list Majo…umm I mean MilkyTee

    • Russell Gorall

      Thank you for this post!!

      I agree, these deals are really solid. For all the complaining I do about lame DOTW’s, I have to give full credit and thanks to Microsoft for pulling all this together.

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

        Still the back to school sale is open for all not worth being a gold member JUST for deals just saying ;D

    • Clattus

      Thanks Milky :)

    • Riddick Snipes

      Back to school sale not available in Australia. How the hell can u not mention something like that major? Really upsetting I mean cmon Ms I’ve got 4000 points to blow.

      • http://www.facebook.com/adam.potts.9484 Adam Potts

        Yes it is!!! Just not advertised. Got to the game through the arcade marketplace and they are all at the discounted prices. I just spent 5000ms, it’s been a while tho.

        • Riddick Snipes

          Thanks dude. I figured it out about an hour ago. This is a prime example how Ms don’t care about Aussie gamers. I mean geez is it really to much trouble to create the same dashboard picture for the back 2 school sale as the usa Xbox. No excuse.

    • http://twitter.com/fcviotto Fernando Coli Viotto

      Now that is what I call using their game portfolio database to make their customers happy. Keep it up!

      As a feedback I believe you could make even better including indie games in your promos.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Alice-Lockhart/100000438939703 Alice Lockhart

        Or, at least, put the Indie Games on another regions (like here, Mexico).

  • markfarmer593

    Ok! pretty good deals this week, next week not so but hey! :)

  • http://profiles.google.com/dfpg86 Décio Gonçalves

    Mark of the Ninja only 800MP? Is that right? That’s freaking awesome! Good deals also…

    • Thânia Santos

      you want it at 1600 like Jojo??

      • http://profiles.google.com/dfpg86 Décio Gonçalves

        I was thinking it would be 1200MP like almost new arcade games. 1600 for Jojo is a joke, a bad one…

        • Thânia Santos

          We laught a lot with that joke!!
          I wonder if capcom is laughting at Jojo Sales??

    • http://www.thetjhzone.blogspot.com/ Tylerh1701

      If you didn’t hear already, it was a typo. Mark of the Ninja will be 1200, looks like Major has corrected this.

      • http://profiles.google.com/dfpg86 Décio Gonçalves

        Yeah, i already read about it, but oh well, im still very interested in the game, if it gets good reviews i’ll buy it at that price.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf

      Damn it you jinxed it!

  • Mrkakaiscomingforyou

    Just Brought SONIC 4 Episode II for 600 Points off of the back to school sale. =D
    Can’t wait for Jet Grind Radio and Sonic Adventures 2 HD

    • Hugoku

      And NiGHTS!!

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf

        Ooh check out that downvoting, watch out we got a badass over here!

        Looking forward to NiD HD and SA2 HD myself… just wish we knew the release dates and prices already. At least we know the NiD achievements and that they’re both “in October”.

  • Hugoku

    Good going with Sine Mora. But then we go back to the same recycled deals. Oh well, at least there is some improvement.

    • fsdfg dsfds

      go away please

    • BlinkFandango

      I agree, this week’s deals are awesome, but next week’s deals are rehashed garbage.

  • http://twitter.com/oldino Federico Casavecchia

    Finally some good deals!
    I got both Sine Mora and American Nightmare!

  • http://www.facebook.com/gil87 Gil Garcia

    Could you guys get the new Nike and New Era NFL gear for the avatar marketplace? I would love to have a new jersey! My current one from Madden 10 is unavailable on the marketplace and my friends only see a blue power tee shirt.

  • Lee Rayson

    Seems a good list Major although i was hoping we get a date for wwe wrestlefest or avatar fire pro
    mehhhhhhhhhhhhh

    • Hugoku

      Ah forgot about Wrestlefest. LEGION OF DOOM FTW!
      Now, is Fire Pro really coming out? And is it really Fire Pro? That’s too hardcore to be an Avatar title to be honest.

      • Lee Rayson

        Fire pro is really coming out, it made byt he people who made the old fire pros but i doubt it will be as hardcore, both should be coming soon since there achievements have pop up on 360A

  • http://www.facebook.com/manuelenrique.martineztorres Martinez Torres Manuel Enrique

    Ok, those are the best sales I’ve ever seen.
    But… WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SCOTT PILGRIM DLC!? I’M STILL WAITING FOR IT!

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

      delayed to fall sadly so still have to wait for it…=/

      • http://www.facebook.com/manuelenrique.martineztorres Martinez Torres Manuel Enrique

        Yeah, I just read about it, WHY THEY CAN’T GIVE AN EXACT DATE?
        What’s the big deal with it? How is that a DLC can give so much problem (to them) and frustration to us, the gamers!
        I know we have been waiting for 2 years, but c’mon! Don’t give us fake hopes!
        It was dated a Month ago, and what happened? PUFF! DISSAPEARED! And did Ubisoft do anything? NOOOOOoooo, they informed a third party magazine that it was delayed to “Fall” 3 DAYS AFTER WE STARTED TO COMPLAIN… wow Ubisoft, WOW

  • Jose Manuel Sanchez

    Where’s Jet Set Radio HD. As I know, the release date for this gem is September 9th (800 MP).

    • markfarmer593

      It’s September 19th =)

      • Jose Manuel Sanchez

        U.U …… damn!

  • 90180360

    Time to get Sine Mora.

  • Volitar Prime

    Great prices for Stacking, Warp, and Sine Mora which are all great games!

  • Pajolero

    Mark of the Ninja is in fact 1200 MS Points. Should fix that up to avoid confusion.

  • http://twitter.com/MacUser1986 Michael Dolcin

    Nice sale bought Warp and BloodForge.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Melton/574790934 Steve Melton

    When are we going to get ODST and Halo CE Anniversary on Games on Demand? I’ve completed both, but would totally buy them again digitally since I don’t own them any more.

  • http://twitter.com/ChicoEdge Chico Edge

    Now this is a righteous week for sales! I saved about $110 which means I earned back three years of Gold subscription fees in just one day!

    Thank you, Deals team. I hope that we see more of this kind of effort and not relying on tired DLC sales for 5 weeks in a row again.

    • http://www.thetjhzone.blogspot.com/ Tylerh1701

      Only 6 games this week are behind the XBL Gold shield. The most you could possibly save this week is $35 against a Gold subscription.

      • http://twitter.com/ChicoEdge Chico Edge

        I didn’t claim that all of the discounts were through Gold. i only wrote that all of the discounts from the XBL games I bought today were enough to cover my last three years of Gold.

        • http://www.thetjhzone.blogspot.com/ Tylerh1701

          O I C

  • David

    Back to School sales not showing up when I click on it. Just acts as if I’ve done nothing and immediately brings me back to the main page.

  • fsdfg dsfds

    WOW good deals of the week for a change!!! kudos

  • Russell Gorall

    This weeks deals are actually really solid. Thanks, Microsoft. Now just tell me whether the DRM on the DLC can be used on the next gen console.

    • http://www.facebook.com/NotThatNigYouThoughtIWas Alexis Acosta

      wow you think like me,I know the new xbox is coming in a year o2 1.5 years,and I want to be able to play them on the new console,even the online modes.This concerns me,which is why I’ve been slowly switching to pc gaming with steam.

  • Clattus

    Been waiting for the Simpsons…..may get Carcassonne and Mortal Kombat. Lots of good deals, nice job! :P

  • Volitar Prime

    I’m on the beta dashboard and can only get the 1st page out of 4 for the back to school sale to show up. Has anyone else who is on the beta been able to get the other 3 pages?

    • http://twitter.com/CsquadUk We Are Csquad!

      I cant even see 1 page on the beta dash

    • lethargicj

      I’ve been having trouble seeing the sales for the past couple of weeks.

  • Riddick Snipes

    I’m from aus and these deals are not available yet. Please tell me we r getting these deals cause I wanna buy sonic 4 2 sinemora and mk.

  • Riddick Snipes

    I’m from aus and these deals are not available yet. Please tell me we r getting these deals cause I wanna buy sonic 4 2 sinemora and mk.

  • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf

    Not bad, getting there… not there yet, but getting there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/marek.sochocki.3 Marek Sochocki

    Why there is no album cover (cover art) for Birds of Steel in Games on Demand? Check Xbox Live marketplace!

    I am disappointed.
