    WHOA! WHAT A NICE SURPRISE! I LOVE YOU, MICROSOFT! <3.

    • rhooper

      There is a leaked list of deals… so, I assume that nothing is a surprise until now.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

        all the deals were known but not how much they are discounted, not exactly a surprise I guess.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003588452408 John Smith

          link to this leak? i wanna know whats coming up so i don’t waste my points

          • rhooper

            Google it: neogaf countdown xbox
            Should be the first result.

          • Mik3t

            your wrong the noegaf thread only has the game not what the price will be

            unless you see TBA as a price ;0)

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

            you can’t link things here. google “neogaf xbox 12 days of sales”

          • http://twitter.com/Nefty900 Neftali Rodriguez

            tommorrow we got the walking dead. Which is nice.

      • http://twitter.com/Wulf684 Jens Kunst

        Looking at the excessive use of caps, I’m guessing it is sarcasm…

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

          Got me XP.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003588452408 John Smith

    i am not disappoint

  • http://www.facebook.com/kenny.krush.9 Kenny Krush

    Dam wish the season pass was 50%
    Still pretty good deal

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

    erm, 2 and a half hours ago i looked on the market place and borderlands 2 season pass was 1800 points..

    • ColdMolasses

      DLC packs has ups and downs. The only thing that I didn’t like (so far) is the fact that they did not increase the level cap. Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt will not include a level cap so it’s kind of a waste of XP at the moment.

  • Telltales

    Sweet, got the Borderlands 2 season pass. Tomorrows sale will be even better for Walking Dead fans ;)

    • this_is_my_humble_opinion

      This low this discount makes me fear that walking dead discount will probably be just 25%-33% as well. In that case I will probably just get the PC full season which retails for less on Steam, Amazon etc

      • ryder4life22187

        Just grab Episode 1 of walking dead while it’s free and do a google search for episodes 2-5 you can get those free as well.

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

        If they’re 200 each it’s an instant buy. If they’re 240 I’ll contemplate it. If 320+ they can naff off.

        • http://www.facebook.com/pwc327 Phil W. Czyzewicz III

          Yeah each of the episodes are 200 each! They are actually up right now at that price!!

  • ElanGabriel

    I never played that game before, Is it any good ? Should I blind buy it for 10$ ?

    • http://twitter.com/ISAMU_MkII オミナエ イサム

      The game is not bad, but the dlcs are… and very bad.

    • dools

      If you have a couple of friends to play through in co-op then definitely buy it.Apparently it’s better in co-op.Playing through solo as I did can get a bit repetitive and grindy at times but it’s still a decent game.For $10 you should get your monies worth anyway

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

      $10 is about what the game is worth, with co-op you get about 3 days of play depending on play times. It is amazingly fun in co-op with good friends, even alone it isn’t bad. the game is semi-open world, with side missions and main missions, killing monster things and crazy people, finding loot ( sorta like RPGs) and leveling up. the best part of the game is finding awesome guns to use, there are many different styles. it took my friends in co-op 3-5 days to complete the game (all quests) which ended up being like 20 hours, which makes the game worth about $20, so $10 isn’t bad.

    • ElanGabriel

      Thanks for the suggestions! :)

  • Lee Rayson

    The season pass for 1800 msp is not a deal, so far the DLC has not been worth it IMO both feel short even though they brag that the DLC would be big and lengthy like BL1 Knoxx DLC

    • http://www.unscripted360.com/ Deacon

      i was hoping for at least 50 too but hey a discount is a discount :)

  • http://twitter.com/ENich1 E.Nich

    Just bought Borderlands 1 GoD, and as I had all the DLC, now I have the GOTY edition in the hard drive LOL

  • http://twitter.com/chmarrwalcott Chmarr walcott

    sorry but borderlands 2 on GOD was £40 and now on sale at £34.
    borderlands 1 was £15 now its £9, sorry but the uk is being messed about with, we are NOT getting the 50% and the 33% off, we are getting less which makes panda sad,

    also the red dead redemption deal really annoied me, i could NOT get the deal in the uk as it kept telling me that the deal was unavalible in my region and that was at 4pm on that day.

    i just feel like we are getting the raw end of the deal

    • Mik3t

      xbox has never treated uk the same, im getting pretty close to done with xbox. when the next gen consoles come out im seriously going to concider switching loyalty as i get none back

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Benn/100003242105182 James Benn

        I wish I could say the PS3 is better but it’s hit and miss – seriously considering switching over to PC exclusively for the next gen.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

          EU gets better PSN+ deals then US PSN+ imo,

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

          also borderlands 1 was free on PSN+, come on MS.

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

            Eh, I’m not a fan of the ‘rental’ model on Plus. I’d prefer to just pay and have the games permanently on my account instead of having to pay $50/year for “free” games. Plus does have good sales though.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

            flawed argument that has been defeated numerous times, yea plus is more rental then ownership but very few games last longer then a month anyway, and why would you stop paying when you get more games each month too. $50 a year and hardly have to buy any games for that year, or spend $60 a year just to play online, yea there is a reason why plus is so successsful

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

            Not a flawed argument at all, just a rational observation. Defeated? Are you 14 years old or something? First of all, the game rentals on Plus aren’t free any more than the movies on Netflix are free. If you have to pay $50/year it isn’t free! Secondly, why would I stop paying for Plus? Well, 8-9 times out of 10 the games they offer are titles I already own or have no interest in playing. Seriously, the Vita was added to Plus last month and out of all the games they offered I owned every single one of them but Mutant Blobs and I don’t want to play that game. Try to understand that lots of people would rather just buy a game and have it to play without having to pay a subscription fee.

      • Riz Virani

        Just get a PC

  • http://twitter.com/ISAMU_MkII オミナエ イサム

    Wait a 13 good/decent consecutive day countdown sales from m$ is a waste of time

  • ungeheier

    How about a refund for people who bought the season pass two days ago as Christmas gifts? Leaked list or not.

    • Russell Gorall

      I’m not sure if buying a pass like that at full price is ever a good idea, especially for a game that came out months ago.

      • ungeheier

        Family members. Not myself.

    • Nick Peck

      Tell me about it, just bought BL2 a few days before the sale :( Could have saved $20.. oh well. Luckily my dad won 3 4000 point cards on quibids for like a buck each :D

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

      Ring up Support, I know it says no refunds but if you explain your situation you might just be surprised. Super old examples but I bought Rainbow Six Vegas DLC back in the day only for it to go free later that very morning got those points back. Also got a refund for some Ninja Gaiden II DLC when purchasing it rendered the whole game unplayable.

      So yeah, give it a go. They might just credit the difference.

  • Russell Gorall

    Meh.

  • Shonk .

    $9.99 For The US
    $14.53 For The UK

    No thanks microsoft

    • m1nh0ca

      $39,50 for Brazil… wtf?

      • http://twitter.com/thalesrgpereira Thales Ramalho

        Para os americano 50% para os brasileiros apenas 33% de 119,00 ….vai entender…proxima geração já sei qual escolher

    • Locke

      Create free account on US, download it and then switch back to ur current account.

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

        Won’t always work, some GoD downloads are region locked.

        960 seems to be a regular price in the Hungarian marketplace, it’s mental.

        • Locke

          If game is region locked you have to use VPN

    • http://www.facebook.com/AwesomeRobCSCS Rob Williams

      There’s other things that go into that price besides what MS puts it at. Brazil’s got a 100% tax on digital goods if I recall correctly, which doubles whatever the US price would be for content originating here. I’m sure the UK and EU have similar situations.

      • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

        But XBLA games cost the same amount of Microsoft Points worldwide so that’s bunk. Microsoft are just greedy.

      • Shonk .

        Microsoft dont even pay tax in the UK
        they pay in Luxembourg so they can avoid as much tax (legally ofc) as they can

  • ryder4life22187

    Was going to buy the first one last night when i saw the price drop down to 9.99 but went to a store and saw the disc version for the same price. Already have all the DLC on my HD so MS won’t get nothing from me.

    • Russell Gorall

      Get the GOTY edition on disc for used, very cheap and the DLC is on the second disc.

      • ryder4life22187

        already have all the DLC from a GOTY disc sitting on my HD. Just went to the store and picked it up.

  • BlinkFandango

    Wow, only 25% off the Season Pass. That sucks, was expecting 50% off. Oh well, I better pick it up since it might not ever go on sale again, it’s not like they put Borderlands stuff on sale often anyways, right? (Yes, that was sarcasm).

    • Russell Gorall

      Or will put out a GOTY edition next year for forty bucks new in the Summer.

  • http://www.facebook.com/adamdjt Adam Daniel John Thompson

    Meh, still cheaper (and better) on steam

  • chiron69

    Borderlands is a kids’ comic shooter. :-| Pleeeeease, give us some REAL deals, after all these years, supporting the XBLive commuity, please Microsoft!

    • Lee Rayson

      Errr no its not it a very mature game, the reason hey change the graphic style of the game last minute is because of Rage

      • chiron69

        Thanks for informing me. I still won’t buy a comic shooter, though. When there’s Dishonored,Far Cry3,Skyrim,BF3 etc on DVD. ;) Which is cheaper than GoD, wierdly enough. How about starting saving the world from plastic,inner plastic and some more plastic (oil)? ;-)

        • Superman64

          You won’t buy a comic shooter? I am guessing you mean it’s graphical style. I have to say…that’s a really stupid reason to not get a game.

          • Sanglant

            uh, no its not. I can’t stand the graphics of the Borderlands series, didn’t bother trying out the game and don’t care because I have plenty of other choices whose graphics style doesn’t bother me. Its called having a preference, Supes, or deference in this case, but either way its all about what you prefer vs what you don’t. And this comes from a guy who loves to read comic books, and loves to play most comic-book games…but not if they look like a comic book, i read those.

          • Superman64

            Uh…it is. If you’d stop yourself from playing a game that has great gameplay and would be fun for hours…simply because of the way it looks then that’s really stupid. Do you not go see movies because you think the special effects look bad too? Even if it had a great story and great acting? Would you not read a good book based on not liking the cover art?

          • Sanglant

            that makes no sense. if I can’t stand the visuals of a game, why the heck would I play it? and, yeah, you tell me how many movies with crappy SFX do well in theaters. sorry, but your argument is complete nonsense.

          • Superman64

            Sorry…I didn’t read your last comment. I’m sure it had something important in it, but I just couldn’t get past the way it looked so I didn’t bother reading it.

          • Sanglant

            I blow your entire argument out of the water with the best points that could be made and you have basically no response but a failed attempt at being witty…shocker.

          • Lee Rayson

            I do understand why the graphic style may put people off, I have my own issues with this style of graphics. I often get headache after playing borderlands or crackdown. it doesn’t stop me playing the game but I do limit myself

        • Sanglant

          Games of Demand is a rip off

          • RicardoDawkins

            Not for me when I got Assasins Creed II & Darksiders for 10 dollars each. Even importing these games to my country using ebay services would be costlier than the GoD.

          • Sanglant

            sounds like your in the minority, in which you can’t get games cheaper than GoD, which sucks because GoD is a rip-off for most.

      • Russell Gorall

        The game? Really?

        • Lee Rayson

          …………whats wrong troll boy?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

      Borderlands 1 was one of the best games to come out in a long time it’s one and only flaw was it was way to short to be worth $60. I haven’t played 2 year ( because $60 for a game that lasts 3 days is a rip off) but black friday I got it for $25 and it was a steal. the art style works very well with the game and it looks a lot better then every COD game out there. It was an over rated game, but it is still very awesome in co-op. Border lands 2 GOTY edition should be around $20 and I highly reccomend it. but GOD games aren’t worth buying at any price the only thing remotely good on this sale is the border lands 2 season pass which saves $10, and the sale saves you another $10.

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

      Yes how dare they use colours other than brown.

  • Daaaaaahhhhhh

    So glad I live in America … So thats why u are referred to as European trash Hahaha sucks to be every one else

  • http://twitter.com/bobbyb2k Bobby B

    Can’t give us a discount on the ridiculously overpriced Black Ops II and Forza Horizon Season Passes?

  • http://www.facebook.com/trent.bryson Trent Bryson

    Would have loved to buy the season pass But Microsoft can’t seem to process my payment. I called the bank and they said that there had been no attempts to process from their end, which means Microsoft is having an issue.

  • http://twitter.com/Navarin Bennijin

    Lower! Lower!

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

    The Walking Dead sale is up! Episodes 2-5 are $2.50 each and episode 1 is free. The entire series is $10 which is cheapest I have ever seen it without having to use a discount code.

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

      Yes!! Microsoft really can count with my points with this, great deal!

    • Hugoku

      Hell yeah!

  • chris

    The Walking Dead sale is on, but not for Australia as it is not even in our marketplace. So do we get a replacement sale for the day? only fair.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Steve-Thompson/625300472 Steve Thompson

    I kind of wish the Borderlands 1 DLC was on sale as well.. not for me (owned it since day one, worth it) but it would of fit nicely.

  • http://twitter.com/benjiix Michel

    Borderlands costs still 19 Francs in Switzerland… C’mon Microsoft, why do we always have to pay more than people in US? & we’re still waiting for YouTube and those many apps…

  • http://www.facebook.com/abraham.garcia.56614 Abraham Garcia

    Was this a one day deal cuz I barely got points today to get it and it’s at full price. Totally sucks!

  • Tisoyboy2

    bought Borderlands 1 for $60 and after 80hrs of play time on the Xbox I
    think I got my moneys worth! But considering I pay for Live and PS+, and
    PS gave me B1 for FREE a few months ago, I don’t really see this as a
    deal.

  • Tisoyboy2

    ……

  • Tisoyboy2

    Can’t join you in the applause. PSN gave Walking Dead 1,2,3,4,&5 for free and they also gave Borderlands 1 for free too.

  • http://twitter.com/ISAMU_MkII オミナエ イサム

    I’m not “bullshiting” anything here.

    I done the entire dlcs in two versions of the game (for gamescore) and is boring like a hell.

    Doesn’t matter if have “more raid bosses, more loot, and etc”

    YOU liked? good for you.
    I already have my opinion and can’t be changed.
