  • http://twitter.com/t0o_cRaZe3 t0o cRaZe3

    very curious about the 10 year anniversary, i suspect a lot of disappointement

    • http://twitter.com/eopdev eopdev

      Probably it will be just that. I like lots of Microsoft stuff. But they have been trashing live lately.

  • NewfieJG

    What about Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals? Are they having those this year?

    • http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/blog.php?u=324759 Tylerh1701

      Good question. I sure hope so….

  • http://twitter.com/rogXue Justin Forsythe

    Xbox LIVE 10 Year Anniversary Sale
    this requires more information before I can become happy/angry in some sort of entitled way.

    • Barry

      There is a page for it on the Japanese xbox site but there is no Guarantee that it will be the same worldwide.

      Wrecketeer free for two days and 50% off Bastion, Battlefield 1943, Castle Crashers, Fruit Ninja, Full House Poker, Geometry Wars Evolved and Peggle for a week.

      • http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/blog.php?u=324759 Tylerh1701

        Yikes I hope not. All of those have been on sale tons of times already.

      • ungeheier

        Hope not, just because I own all of them already.

        • http://twitter.com/rogXue Justin Forsythe

          yikes, it’d be a great sale but I own them all as well lol

        • http://twitter.com/seekul Luke Es | sE ekuL

          One would hope a 10 year anniversary sale might appeal to people who have been here for 10 years? :) Ah well. I can think of two things I’m specifically waiting for a sale on. Everything else I’ll either own already, or it will be a surprise that I overlooked at full price.

      • Hugoku

        Got it, got it, got it, don’t have Kinect, got it, got it, got it.

        So yeah, hopefully not the same.

      • mcmax3000

        If that’s the case, I’ll grab Wrecketeer for free, but I already own all of the others.

      • BlinkFandango

        Wow, these deals really are sucking.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

      To be fair on a paid service you have every right to feel entitled.

  • rhooper

    Black Ops 2: Season Pass – 4000 MSP… alright…
    For this amount we can almost buy a brand new Halo 4.

    • Z4M0

      …not counting Halo 4 already includes its season pass.

      • rhooper

        Then, we buy Black Ops 2 instead ;-)

        • Z4M0

          :D

          • rhooper

            Just kidding… I’m the kind of guy that will never buy season passes. I’d rather spent MSP in new games instead of DLC.

      • mcmax3000

        Only if you buy the $100 Collector’s Edition.

        • Z4M0

          my halo collector’s edition was just 5€ +expensive than the regular one, and contained 2 avatar stuff and season pass worth 2000 msp… the $100 might contain gold bars inside, who knows…

    • http://twitter.com/boe2BE Boe2

      You COULD give them the finger and go play a different shooter.

      But that’s the problem here isn’t it? Most of you will fall for it anyway. Can’t blame the publishers for doing this.

    • Russell Gorall

      Or you could buy a good game that isn’t a military shooter.

      • rhooper

        Just an example, as Halo 4 was out by now too…
        The only game I bought right when it was released was Mortal Kombat (in fact, a week later, and found by 50 dollars). I always wait for a price drop that occur after some months…

      • http://www.facebook.com/chris.grub.5 Chris Grub

        Let people play what they want to play.

    • Hugoku

      First it was Forza 4 season pack now this one.
      4000 is too steep I think. And the main problem is that we don’t know exactly what the content will be.

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

        I agree, These publishers had lost their mind on pricing stuff.

        Back in the gold old gaming days expansion packs really worth their 50 bucks since they added several stuff to games, nowadays these DLCs are nothing more then a few hours and you would never play that again.

        • mcmax3000

          Going by previous CoD DLC, you’re likely looking at 20 additional maps for that $50.

          I don’t recall too many expansion packs with that much content, so I’d say it’s a reasonable price.

          • m1nh0ca

            There’s a difference between “expansion pack” and “just more maps”…

          • mcmax3000

            For a multiplayer shooter, not much.

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

            If you’re just happy with maps that should be OK. For me, just more maps doesn’t makes feel that I would continue playing the same thing over and over again.

          • mcmax3000

            I was just referring to amount of content. In terms of variety of content, I would definitely prefer more than just maps (not that what I prefer matters, because I gave up on CoD multiplayer back with Modern Warfare 2).

      • Russell Gorall

        With Forza Horizon it is going to be a hundred cars they didn’t include on the disc. COD stuff seems a little more legitimate.

        That being said, I can buy two games new for fifty bucks that are better than any of these titles.

    • BostonSup

      Yeah, a new game is better than overpaying for maps. That said, there are sadly plenty of gamers willing to bend over for Activision’s DLC practices.

  • Sam Elfström

    [INSERT RAGE COMMENT ABOUT BAD DEALS]

    • http://twitter.com/eopdev eopdev

      AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Damn bad deals. How can they make that soooo horrible? 8D

      Anyway, their choices about content on xbox live have been simply horrible lately. That’s for sure.

      • Z4M0

        …and by lately you meant “the whole year” (with few exceptions).

    • Jose Manuel Sanchez

      Now, what’s the point of my 320 gb HDD??? … DAMN!!!

      • http://twitter.com/eopdev eopdev

        I’ve been making myself the same question over and over. Still didn’t figure it out.

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

        Yeah, not to mention how much Microsoft hard drives cost! I got mine at a discount and it still stang a bit.

  • Z4M0

    mmnn… despite I love boardgames I like them to stay on my table. May get puzzle quest 2 at that prize since I loved the 1st one. I am alive is also an option but as far as we haven’t a clue about what Xbox LIVE 10 Year Anniversary Sale will be about I, and almost everyone I guess, will be holding my possible purchases.

    Details on those kind of sales would be much aprecciated.

  • Thânia Santos

    they made some deal of the week on puzzle games.
    great, but most of them have already been on deals previously!
    and where are the more obscure/less know/less popular puzzle games? why are they never on deal?

    deals have been such a desappointment for 2012…
    (and dont get me started on PS3 deals and Steam deals)

    a good deal next week … but only 1 game…

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

      Well you’re wrong about I Am Alive for 800 being a good deal but yeah I agree with the rest of this post.

  • http://twitter.com/MykeJayy Michael J

    To be fair while the deal of the week games for this week are quite good they should be that price to begin with since they are older games, guess beggars can’t be choosers though.

    Games on Demand will once again be overpriced, least they reduced a fair few older titles to £11.99 although I believe if they were priced at £9.99/$9.99 then people would be more inclined to buy.

  • http://twitter.com/ENich1 E.Nich

    Nothing for me these next two weeks, but I’ve been expending a crazy amount of MSP lately, so no problem.
    Let’s see what that 10 year anniversary sale has to offer.

  • http://twitter.com/boe2BE Boe2

    Isn’t warlords misplaced? I believe it belongs in the “deal of the week” category ;)

    • MysticWeirdo

      No, It a new version of the game, not the one that’s currently available.

  • Jacob

    Xbox Live Gold is has no Value Anymore is pretty much useless to renewed now

    • http://twitter.com/eopdev eopdev

      Well, I don’t know if it is “useless”. But that their choices for on demand and deals have been horrible, that’s for sure.

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

        Yeah, it’s not worthless but it is worth less.

  • Russell Gorall

    Hilarious.

    Any new demos coming out?

    • http://twitter.com/GunstarChaos Brett Seymour

      Need for Speed: Most Wanted

      • Russell Gorall

        Yeah, I saw that earlier. Rented it a week or two ago, really solid game. Played Horizon right after and found Horizon to be beyond corny and stale.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ricardo.baptista.714 Ricardo Baptista

    Still no Halo 3 ODST on Games on Demand? Maybe Halo 4 should be on Games on Demand too!!!

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

      Thing is MS still hasn’t got Games on Demand DLC right, or much of anything digital lately.

      Halo 4 should have launched as a download at the same moment as retail, priced competitively and with a worthy incentive.

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

        I agree. I don’t get why they’re still not putting a digital copy to be sold as the retail launches.

        • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

          They were the first non-PC platform to offer digital downloads of their games but now Sony and Nintendo have both usurped them in how retail downloads are handled. It’s ridiculous!

  • http://twitter.com/TheTimWelsh Timothy Welsh

    They are sellin X-men: Destiny even though all of the discs just got ordered to be destroyed?

  • Hugoku

    Unless the Xbox LIVE 10 Year Anniversary Sale turns out to be really good, I would say these next two weeks are really bad.

    • http://twitter.com/eopdev eopdev

      Agreed. Although some of the deals interested me because I like those games… I feel like they should be waaaay better.

    • http://twitter.com/boe2BE Boe2

      if I would be organising them: xbla greatest hits for 400 points. In reality it will more likely 33% off avatar clothing and gamerpictures.

    • http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/blog.php?u=324759 Tylerh1701

      I think the Puzzle Quest games are pretty sweet and haven’t been on sale for quite a while. Also, I don’t think super puzzle fighter hasn’t ever been on sale. Good day for a puzzle game fan like me.

      • Hugoku

        Well, Puzzle Quest 1 is awesome. I had it on my DS and it was crack.
        I would be daydreaming gems and skulls. And had nightmares about it too.

        For some reason, didn’t translate as well for me on the Xbox. Plus, they nerfed Deathbringer too much.
        As for PQ2, I found it to be not as smooth as the first one but it’s a matter of opinion.

        • http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/blog.php?u=324759 Tylerh1701

          Thanks for the input. I’ve played a decent amount of PQ1 on PC, but I think I’m still gonna pick them both up for XBLA. Like you say, the games are super addictive.

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

          I agree, loved PQ1 but hated PQ2, it was so dull and boring, plus they removed elements that made PQ1 great like the building the fortress, trainning pets, the world map…

          • Hugoku

            Yeah. It was funny how the game could fool you into thinking you were doing so many different things. Learning spells, training mounts, forging items, looking for runes, etc. In the end we were just sill matching gems (or hammers, or scrolls)! It all worked though.

        • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

          Also Puzzle Quest 1 DLC is still seven hundred points lol.

          • http://twitter.com/eopdev eopdev

            Saw that, couldn’t believe. And I really can’t believe I’m saying this, but please, MS… learn something from the not-so-bright-but-still-getting-things-done-better-than-you PSN.

    • http://www.facebook.com/chris.grub.5 Chris Grub

      How MS and PS acts in the next year will base my decision on what platform to go to next time around.

      I’m getting pretty sick of $9/month just to access to netflix and browse a couple of YouTube videos. I haven’t played anything online in months and the future releases don’t look great either.

  • http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/blog.php?u=324759 Tylerh1701

    I’m excited about the DOTW this week, gonna pick up both Puzzle Quest games and Super Puzzle Fighter. Actually been waiting on all 3 for quite a while!

    33% off isn’t enough to pick up I Am Alive next week. I’ll wait for 50% off.

  • http://johnpaulroth.blogspot.com/ John Paul Roth

    Super Puzzle Fighter HD!! I’m excited to see what the 10 year anniversary sales are too.

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

    Carcassonne, Catan, Magic The Gathering, Super Puzzle Fighter HD and Puzzle Quest 1 had to be put at 400 MSP long time ago. I don’t think they’re are good deals.

    I Am Alive at 33% MAY be insteresting, still don’t know if I will get it.

    Lets see what happens on the Live anniversary. Hope you are waiting the good stuff to be there.

    Darksiders 2 and Sleeping Dogs are very welcome!
    I think I may start not grabbing disc copies anymore.

  • chris

    What happened?

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

      It’s related to Silicon Knights and Epic Games lawsuits against each other. Silicon Knights lost big time and any games they made using code based on their version of the Unreal Engine have been ordered by a federal judge to be recalled and destroyed.

  • http://twitter.com/Byyys Byyys

    Xbox LIVE 10 Year Anniversary Sale … Let me guess, Oblivion & Fallout again?!!!

    • BlinkFandango

      Don’t forget Bioshock.

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

      LOL – Hope that they will surprise us.

  • http://twitter.com/DatGuy1972 G-Man

    I find it funny that X-Men: Destiny has been put up on Games on Demand… specially seeing as Silicon Knights was ordered to destroy all copies of the games from the legal battles with Epic.

    • Lee Rayson

      how is that funny? they were ordered to destory all unsolds games thats all, fact is no retail store will still ordering theses games brand new anyway so it the games that are in a warehouse somewere

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

      The order said they have until December 21st to comply, so they’re probably trying to squeeze out as many sales as they can.

  • http://twitter.com/MykeJayy Michael J

    Darksiders 2 – £44.99

    Dream on.

  • Z4M0

    halo 4 collector’s ed. contains the season pass (2000 msp) plus few armor customization stuff + avatar stuff + phisical goodies like a booklet, etc. and preorder pricetag for it was barely the same as the regular ed.

  • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

    Repeated deals, bad deals and a bunch of overpriced no-marks on XBLA.

    It’s like you hate us.

    • Thânia Santos

      happy 10th birthday to you!!
      I hope you bought kinekt!!!

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

        My brother did, it’s a little dusty and he’s still fat.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jason.james.9803150 Jason James

    Wow……..Just…Wow… I know it’s AAA season, but seriously, will we ever get any decent deals?? I just had a FREE month on PSN+ Ok, the games might only last until the end of my sub, but at least i get to play FREE content for the month. What do M$ do for us, who pay to play ONLINE, NOTHING….especially of late. maybe one day i’ll post a positive comment about M$. Unlikely i suspect.

    The Xbox anniversary was last year. THIS is the 10 Year Anniversary of Xbox LIVE

  • Russell Gorall

    I really hope Sony does something with their controllers next gen. I just hate the small size, it feels like I am using a toddler’s controller.

    The Vita is looking more and more like a buy to me. I just want a price dip.

  • http://twitter.com/HEpennypacker Jason Oliver

    What do we have to do to get the Banjo-Kazooie games on sale? Cuz those I’d buy!

    I Am Alive is tempting but I’ve already got too many games which are a hard slog!

    • Thânia Santos

      both banjo-kazoo games were sales
      I know it, coz I bought them that way…
      but only once
      why not buy red dead redemtion DLC next time they are on sales?

  • Thânia Santos

    MS is far better!!!
    PS owner does not even have FREE advertisement on their dashboard!!!

    Free advertisment?? oh sorry!! we are Gold members!! we pay for them!

  • Jordan Shannon

    I wish Dishonored would hit the market soon.

  • chiron69

    Is this weeks “Sale” a “power-demostration” from Microsoft? We shouldn’t expect anything good at all? Or what is going on? :-| Man, I’m actually, for the first time, thinking of moving over to PSN. This has to be a joke…

  • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

    And before someone chimes in that you don’t “own” them etc etc it’s still better than what we get plus they get further discounts, including on new content, so there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Liquidfx-Xboxdude/100003184837175 Liquidfx Xboxdude

    ok i just got a look at the “deals” for the 10 year anniversary and lol. they are games that most people have like fruit ninja and bastion and they are about 10. also, they are giving away wreckateer for 2 days for free. WOW lamest sale ever. deals of the week are better than this. oh well, back to black ops 2. i thought they were headed in the right direction for a minute but its like when they take one step forward they then take 2 steps back. no money from me this time. LAME!!!!!!!!!!

  • disqus_NPAkpiltc4

    when will halo 4 or black ops II come out on xbox live demand to where i can buy them through xbox?

  • http://twitter.com/hizoka_darkwolf alias: Hizoka Andou

    Good deals for me. I bought peggle, castle crushers and Bastion. Bastion is the best of all… a wonderful game! Thanks xbox live for the fun you always give me :)

  • chiron69

    Is this ‘sale’ a joke? If it is, it’s a really bad one, for sure. :-| Ten years of ‘xboxing’, and I’ve paid around 11 000NOK ($1908,05) just for the console and the XBLive subscription through these years, by having to buy scrratch-cards. And that’s without all the content and games! Multiply this by the millions of users on XBLive, and a picture starts to form… ;) In my head the picture is a bit dark, unfortunately… :-| Sorry about the negativity, but I’m getting ‘chomped’ with these ‘sales’…
