  • TheDoveOfPeace

    Do many people play Full House Poker? Oh and


    • Lee Rayson

      Last time i wa son yeah there a fair amount ppl, but it been discounted recently so more ppl bought it cheap

  • rhooper

    Jet Set Radio, alright! o/

    But I really would like to spend my points… here we go through another 2 weeks without an interesting thing for me.

  • Josh Cox

    some good things for me to pick up i’ve got 600 points from rewards thing and i can get the DLC for Deux Ex and i think i’ll get Jet Set Radio idk yet but most likely the Deux Ex DLC

  • Lenny Ely

    No mention of the massive rock band song sale?

    • Hugoku

      That one is huge! A sale for the ages… If you like RB (which I do).

      A great change to expand the tracklist, for those who picked RBB a few weeks back.

  • Karen den Broeder

    Thank you for updating. The sales are not being listed on the dash in Canada at all. This and the CAG forum are the only way I can find out there’s a sale. We don’t have the Sale App in Canada. Can someone on the xbox team give us a dash square for Sales and Discounts in Canada?

    • Lee Rayson

      if you dont have the app do what alot other regions have done make a US account then download it

  • Hugoku

    JSR at last!
    Plus, we’ll finally find out if the avatar Fire Pro Wrestling game lives up to it’s name.

    And, don’t want to be a whiner but I still think MvC Origins should have been 800. Will wait for DotW.

    • markfarmer593

      Yeah, been waiting for Jet Set for a while! At 800 too is nice.
      I agree on MvC Origins should maybe have been 800, but there you go.
      Hell Yeah! also looks like a lot of fun.. Looking forward to that.. too bad will have to wait an extra week :'(

      Other than that I will say we had that one good week a couple of weeks ago, but overall the deals have been pretty uninspiring.. and that carries on (for another 2 weeks at least)

  • Chris Grub

    Jet Set Radio – keep bringing on the ports. Good times.

    • Hugoku

      More than that, great ports!
      Sonic CD and JSR are old games brought to the current consoles with great care.
      Don’t want everyone pulling a Jojo again.

      Hopefully Sonic Advance 2 and Nights show the same love. From what i’ve seen, Nights is shaping up great.

      • Buster Wolf

        Advance 2? :p

        But yeah looking forward to NiGHTS and ADVENTURE 2. Shame we get them the Friday after NA PSN. What’s with them not launching on the Wednesday, Major?

        (You should really beat them at their own game and get your digital games out before, not after.)

        • Hugoku

          haha, meant Adventure. The Advance are pretty good though.

    • Décio Gonçalves

      Yeah, i hope that rumour about Skies of Arcadia is true, xbla really needs some jrpgs…

      • Lee Rayson

        I just hope Shenmue rumours were true… it the only game i want on xbla more than any other game

  • Geoff Lutes

    Will there ever be anything NFL related for avatars? It’s been at least 2 years without anything

    • MathGuy42

      I’m guessing that “NLF” was a typo for NFL. Perhaps there’s an NLF I’m not aware of though.

    • Jaymoon

      Nope, just ‘NLF’ avatar stuff…

      and ‘Battledfield’? Typos much?

  • Buster Wolf

    Anything more than nothing is too much for Capcom Disc Locked CONtent.
    Any reasoning behind the Hell Yeah staggered release? This is the first I’ve heard of it.
    Obligatory: JET SET RADIOOOOOOO…

  • MathGuy42

    Just a warning to everyone that Cars Race-o-Rama has an unobtainable achievement. It was never obtainable. Microsoft should force the developer to fix the game before placing it on Games on Demand, but I doubt it has been fixed. I hope I’m wrong.

  • markfarmer593

    And for those interested there are 3 Sales And Specials App deals, which are;
    1) Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light – 50% off – down to 600
    2) All Zombies Must Die – 50% off – down to 400
    3) Puzzle Arcade – 50% off – down to 400

    • DragonsDeck

      Thats nice for those of you that actally have the Sales and Specials App, for the rest of us peasants I guess MS will get around to it when they feel like it.

      • Daniel Cuadras

        You can make a free US account, download the Sales and Specials App from it, and launch the app from your regular account. The deals still work. I’m in Spain where this app is not available, have done this and have used some offers from it.

    • rhooper

      Damn it… Lara Croft is all the time on sale, but I bought it at full price a while ago…

      Well, patience is a virtue, young padawan…

    • Ricardo Dawkins


  • Steve Melton

    ODST and Halo Anniversary on Games on Demand, por favor! Thanks!

    By the way, always appreciate these updates. Thanks Major!

  • BlinkFandango

    Definitely picking up Fable Heroes.

  • Riddick Snipes

    Jet set radio = OMG. Bring it on!!!

  • Lee Rayson

    Fire Pro Wrestling 800mps = buy!!! i did expect it to be 1200 msp to be honest but im glad it only 800

  • The Dude

    lol censoring posts because they are critical of you is a really bad idea.

  • Brad Lavender

    Damn, I bought Dragon’s Lair a month ago before leaving the country. As for the super-hero sale: why only drop the price of the regular MvC3 costume pack and not the mega-pack that goes with UMvC3? I’ve been hoping to see that for 800 for a while.

  • Nicholas J. Ambrose

    Some great stuff here over the next few weeks! Already picked up Fable Heroes, Jet Set Radio HD is an instant buy, and the FFXIII-2 content will almost definitely end up being bought too! Anyone got an idea of what the sale includes, out of interest?

  • Karl Cramer

    Curious about Fire Pro Wrestling. Saw that at PAX East last year and haven’t heard much about it since. Would like to see how that turned out. They had promised that you would be able to use your avatar props in the ring to fight with.

    • Lee Rayson

      Well on Friday you can try the demo, im excited for it i been waiting for it since it was announced years ago. i know you can use your avatar clothing but didnt know about the props what they supoose to be weapons?

  • Michael Dolcin

    What’s awesome is I was literally going to buy Fable Heroes on Friday but I thought I should wait. Glad I did!

  • Chico Edge

    Not great but not bad either. I’ll be picking up Dragon’s Lair this week and if enough of my friends get Fable: Heroes I’ll buy that as well. I’ve been wanting the Avengers pinball tables so that will be a good buy next week.

  • Martinez Torres Manuel Enrique

    Where the hell is Scott Pilgrim Wallace DLC!?

    • Lee Rayson

      It got delayed i think it till next month

  • Eric Starr

    So, Jet Set Radio and a bunch of other meh stuff? Ok.

  • Fernando Coli Viotto

    Jet Set Radio for a very reasonable price!

    And someone could please punch CAPCOM in the face? They were asking for 400 MSP for 1 single character um UMvC3… what a greedy nonsense company… That explains the absurd pricing on Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure as well…

  • Andrés Salgado

    Does someone knows if the Sales and Specials app discounts are only for Gold users? Or they are available also for Silvers?

  • Spencer Evan Breland

    I’m assuming being the Avatar section gets a Minecraft Update on 25-Sept, we should expect to see the new update of Minecraft sometime that week :)

  • Russell Gorall

    Sounds rad.

  • ryder4life22187

    makes me wonder why or if fable heroes is really gonna be on sale for almost a month or maybe a error in the deal

  • Russell Gorall

    Just noticed Metacritic is teaming up with Gearbox to get any negative user reviews of Borderlands 2 deleted. Very classy.

  • aStrangeDisease

    Borderlands 2 Season Pass is not much of a deal for Canadians. We only get 1400 points for $20 which means the Season Pass (@ 2400 points) costs $34.29 for 4 pieces of DLC. If each piece cost $10, (the average) then that is a savings of only $5.71. Fix the pricing for MS Points in Canada, Microsoft! Our dollar is worth more than yours!

  • Haseo

    Wow, the DotW was starting to improve a little bit for awhile there and was almost starting to get half-way decent. It looks like it was just a fluke though however. X-Men is the only decent thing for 2 weeks, but I won’t get it b/c it’s likely that no one plays it online anymore. Wouldn’t mind a sale on Crysis 1, and Resident Evil 4 and Code:Veronica games. $20 is a little much, but for $10 each I’d buy all 3 instantly. Also wouldn’t mind getting Orcs Must Die 2 brought over to XBL as well, they added co-op to it that looks so much fun!

    • Buster Wolf

      Also X-Men Arcade has been 200.

  • L31GHS

    So where’s the Texas heat DLC then???

  • L31GHS

    So where’s the Texas heat DLC then???

  • Sean Holletzek

    Are you saying the mincraft update is Sept 25

  • David las

    is the minecraft update the one with creative mode?
