      You honestly have nothing better to do than to come here and whine everyday do you?

      • Russell Gorall

        And you have nothing better to do than reply to him?

    • http://www.facebook.com/brett.burback Brett Burback

      guess what? Not everyone has a pc that can run Skyrim properly.

      • H0RIZ0N

        Honestly, most modern laptops should be able to run skyrim. Yes I said laptops, $400 ones.

        • http://www.facebook.com/brett.burback Brett Burback

          Yah if you can afford to buy a laptop every year. Mine is a year and a half and I paid about that for it. Acer Aspire 4gb ram p6000 processor with a dated integrated graphics chip. Definitly isn’t goning to run Skyrim.

          • Russell Gorall

            You honestly think you have to buy a laptop every year to play PC games like Skyrim?

          • http://www.facebook.com/brett.burback Brett Burback

            no my point was I bought one a little over a year ago for 400 dollars and I can’t run Skyrim worth a damn

          • http://www.facebook.com/brett.burback Brett Burback

            lol if i spent more than 400 dollars I would probably be able to run it and my machine wouldn’t have been outdated the day I bought it.

          • H0RIZ0N

            lenovo IdeaPad Z575 (129929U), only $430 can run skyrim on high settings.

          • ryder4life22187

            the day you buy your machine is the day it is also outdated.

          • chiron69

            Then you probably bought one, without thinking of the graphics chip, maybe? :-|

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

          wrong. lol actually, most laptops that are $400 can’t run Skyrim except in a slow non-playable way.

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

        point is, some of the stuff is over priced, this just in, if you saved $20 on 10 game purchases you saved $200, then assuming you payed for gold membership for 5 years, that is another $300 bought a 250gb xbox hard drive to upgrade your small 4gb or 20gb one? another $100. oh yea, the console itself, giving you the benefit of the doubt, $200.

        the skyrim+ dlc prices on the marketplace aren’t bad, but oblivion DLC should be $1 at this point in time, you can get the GOTY edition in store for about $20, and you can reuse the disks!

    • ryder4life22187

      What does steam’s prices have to do with xbox 360s prices nothing. Not everyone likes to play games on their pc. I for one don’t never had a good experience with it. I know their are arguments that you can use a controller well if that’s so why don’t i just stick with my xbox makes more sense.

    • http://www.facebook.com/AdamFields86 Adam Fields

      A laptop can’t run Skryim correctly at 60 FPS. Sure, you may can turn off AA, run the game at 1024×768 and get playable frames. IMO, if you’re going to play Skyrim on the PC you need a 2GB graphics card, ATI 6950/7950, this is so you can use the 4k texture packs. Bare minimum you need to run the game on Ultra High settings at 1920×1080, with no mods, is 4GB RAM, fast quad core “i5 or AMD overclocked”, and a 6850/560 ti graphics card.

      • H0RIZ0N

        Can the xbox run the game on ultra? no

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

    i am not disappoint

  • http://twitter.com/Aglachel Erick Salas Sánchez

    Hell yeah

  • dan958

    Heartfire is still 400 on the GB store.

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      If you don’t see the lower price on the English version..check back later today.

      • http://www.facebook.com/dan958 Dan Etheridge

        Thanks, just do not want to miss out on this deal.

      • vivalajam26

        Any changes on this? Really want to get Skyrim DLC but still normal price on the UK marketplace :(

        • Volitar Prime

          It is still normal price on the US marketplace too.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brett.burback Brett Burback

    sweeeeet!!!

  • http://twitter.com/TSGDwaggie Dwaggie

    I’m still waiting for the hearthfire to go down to 200 MSP, MajorNelson. And is there a reason why the dragonborn DLC is not on sale too? 1600 MSP for ANY DLC is overpriced and ridiculous.

    • Lee Rayson

      It not on sale because it has just came out

      • http://twitter.com/John485748562 John

        Yeah The Walking Dead just came out too and you could get the whole thing for 800 points. It’s no excuse.

        • Lee Rayson

          Different game and the last Episode of walking dead is at least a month old Skyrim DLC is 2 weeks old at the most

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=798605454 Bob Baker

          It’s that way because either you, or you let a friend buy horse armor.
          Welcome to DLC.

    • Ruben

      Why does this guy gets thumbs down for asking why the new dlc is not in this discounts, and that a poece of dlc are really overpriced these days. People just surprise me more and more

      • Ruben

        imagine today a piece of dlc 1600 , tomorrow a costume pack for 800, really we have to speak with our wallets

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

          except, the skyrim DLC is actually an expansion pack, and not a small 4 map pack for $15…

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

        fanboys downvote anything against MS.

    • Crown_Lager

      I’d agree Dawnguard is/was overpriced, and possibly Dragonborn as well. However, I also feel Dragonborn is FAR more worth it for the price than Dawnguard was.

      Fair bit of content in it. I finished up the achievements for it the other week – one of the last achievements I got was for exploring 30 places on the map. I still seem to have a number of places coming up on the compass I haven’t explored yet, as well as unfinished quests.

  • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

    If you don’t see the lower price on the English version, it should be appearing soon.

    • vivalajam26

      What would happen if we got the French one? Surely the Xbox would default it to the language the system is set up to be?

      • MrT26

        I presume the different language versions only include that one language, to reduce the file size – no idea if there’s any compatibility issues running a French file on a console/game set to English…

    • http://www.facebook.com/jbbelcher John Belcher

      As of 13:45 GMT it’s still at 400 instead of 200.

      • http://twitter.com/ProjectMayhem69 David J.

        I feel so dumb for buying it via console earlier not realizing the price wasn’t updated. Oh well… at least I only lost 200 MSP. Smh!

      • http://twitter.com/ProjectMayhem69 David J.

        Yay they auto-refunded me the 200 MSP. Whew. XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/manuel.aranda.142687 Manuel Aranda

    Hey Major, any news on a New Years Day sale or does it end here? This last day is decent but I own all except Dragonborn and since that’s not on sale I’m passing…

    • chris

      I think thats asking a bit too much, we don’t even have the post up for deal of the week for 2 weeks and upcoming releases.

      • mcmax3000

        The guy’s been on vacation the past couple of weeks. I’m sure we’ll get a Marketplace post either by the end of this week, or early next week.

        • chris

          You say that but he was able to post up all the daily deals, he has been answering posts on here recently and he has been posting twitter posts about the daily deals

    • mcmax3000

      The 31st is always the last day for the holiday sale.

  • http://www.facebook.com/manuel.i.bueno Manuel I. Bueno

    I love this, thanks. I may also pick up Shivering Isles while I’m at it. :)

  • http://twitter.com/DreamTwice Kenny

    GOTY at gamestop for only 20

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

      for those that don’t know, the GOTY edition of oblivion has all the DLC on a disk, you put it in and install it, you can share with all your friends as well. also, the GOTY edition disk has some mild changes and bug fixes that iirc are not available to the normal disk. Oblivion GOTY was one of the best games I ever played and anyone who likes skyrim and can handle the lesser graphics should buy it.

  • Lee Rayson

    What no Horse armour on sale??? that’s all I wanted for xmas!!

    • Hugoku

      I’m thinking that’s kind of a running joke now. Seems to me Horse armor is never on sale.

    • Russell Gorall

      Or, the 2012 version of Horse Armor DLC… the Max Payne 3 Season Pass.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ZLostCowboyZ Nelson Cerino

    Please, Price drop Code Veronica X. From 20 to 10 UDS. Thanks.

  • http://twitter.com/Keymaker2005 Zbigniew Borowski

    That strange feeling when you wait for a daily offer with Skyrim add-ons and when it comes you realize you have them o.O

  • http://twitter.com/TSGDwaggie Dwaggie

    Seriously, Larry, hurry up and get Hearthfire down to 200 points. It’s STILL at 400 msp. Tell whoever’s in charge of prices to get their damn arse in gear and lower it.

    • vivalajam26

      It’s not Larry doing it, but I agree they should get a move on with getting the sales up. It’s like Rayman Origins all over again, that was on sale for US but no where else :(

    • chiron69

      Here too… (No(r)way. :-( Panda is saaaad.

      • http://twitter.com/TSGDwaggie Dwaggie

        They’ve finally fixed it. Thanks Larry.

        • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

          yup,,,,it just required a little patience.

  • http://twitter.com/paganZERO Chadwicked

    I’ve finally snapped and bought Oblivion and Shivering.. I just really wanted it on the hard drive so I don’t have to put the disc in.. Yes.. Im that lazy.. Oops no save file left… One of the only games I will happily restart over and over… Happy gaming folks!!!

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

      use only hand to hand, it’s silly but fun.

  • http://www.facebook.com/andre.thomas.5264382 Andre Thomas

    What the hell guys? I wanted to get Hearthfire along with Dawnguard, but its still at the regular 400 msp price while saying “50% off”. And if I didnt already know the price of it I would’ve fallen for that too.

    • http://twitter.com/ProjectMayhem69 David J.

      I feel so dumb for buying it via console earlier not realizing the price
      wasn’t updated. Oh well… at least I only “potentially” lost 200 MSP. Smh! I say potentially because the last time something like this happened, I had purchased some Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit DLC day one, but the price was 800 MSP by mistake instead of 560 or whatever it was supposed to be at the time. They auto-refunded me the overpaid amount weeks later. Won’t assume that happens again though.

      • http://www.facebook.com/andre.thomas.5264382 Andre Thomas

        Well they finally fixed it now, maybe youll get your 200 points back soon.

        • http://twitter.com/ProjectMayhem69 David J.

          Yay they auto-refunded me again. Whew. XD

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

    i wonder if there will be a year-end sale? i love sales.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jrd.walsh Jared R Walsh

    Steam And Xbox has the same Price of Skyrim for $29.99 and dlc both them for Skyrim too

  • kx81

    Still waiting for Hearthfire to drop to its sale price…

  • chiron69

    Dragonborn is still 1600 points. That’s 35USD for an EXTENSION of a great game! I sold my copy of Fallout: New Vegas, and bought the Collectors Edition (with ALL DLC’s) for the same price as I got for the standard game DVD. -How stupid can you get, as they sing in the movie “Top secret”? ;-) And I’m referring to Bethesda&Microsoft collaboration…. TIME TO LOWER ALL PRICES BY A ZERO. I bet you’d sell thirty times more content with a tenfold rediction. Do the math, please. ;-)

    • kingcrusher

      I think the Top Secret song was “How silly can you get”. Funny show, remember that from when I was a kid.

      • chiron69

        that’s precisely right, thanks man! Yeah, it was hilarious, as most of the Zucker/Zucker&Abrahams coop… ;)

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=501334632 Michael Ratliff

      That’s why I’ve held out on getting Dawnguard and Dragonborn. I want them, badly, but I’m not even going to bother because I KNOW the GOTY will have a much more comfortable price.

    • Volitar Prime

      1600 points is $20 USD (or less if you get them on sale), not $35.

      • chiron69

        Nope, that’s IF you have a credit card. Not everyone have, or want as credit card these days. If you buy scratch cards, these are the directly converted prices from norwegian NOK to USD. That’s what bothers me, Microsoft set up a cooperation with Paypal. Yeah, I thought, and tried to register, as I’m an active user of Paypal.. But even then Microsoft had to have my credit details! I thought the point with Paypal is that one shouldn’t neeed any? :-|

  • Hugoku

    I guess it’s as good a time as any to get Oblivion and its DLC for thos who still (after many, many times on sale) don’t have it.
    I was hoping for a better deal on Skyrim GoD though, but as always… reality check.

    • chiron69

      Yes,personal HDD space is very expensive, say Microsoft. :-| (Irony)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=501334632 Michael Ratliff

    Hmmmm….Really wanting Dawnguard…but REALLY rather wait for the Game of the Year edition to come out…

  • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson
    • Russell Gorall

      Can I get it for 100 points?

  • BlinkFandango

    I’m just going to wait for the GOTY edition on Skyrim that comes with all the DLC for $20 (like I did with the Fallout games and Oblivion).

  • http://www.facebook.com/clint.crain.7 Clint Crain

    And Steam for the win!

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

    Well, I won’t buy into the Skyrim deal as I prefer Elder Scrolls games on PC but I wanted to say that overall this has been a great sale. I picked up nine Arcade games, three Games on Demand plus the entire Walking Dead series. Well done, Microsoft!

  • rosalab

    In Mexico Skyrim is $40 dollars :S why is that?

  • http://twitter.com/xChrisMatthewsx Chris Matthews

    Why is dawnguard 800msp. It’s 1200 normally. 50% off, should be 600. Says 50% off on dashboard.

    • Crown_Lager

      Dawnguard is normally 1600 points.

      • http://twitter.com/xChrisMatthewsx Chris Matthews

        No, sorry. I was on phone with Microsoft. They saw the dlc was 1200 points as well. But they couldn’t find the 50% off part. I also checked last night before it went on sale. 1200.

        If Microsoft saw it was 1200 points before sale. It should be 600

        • Crown_Lager

          The items in the end-of-year sale are discounted in advance of when Larry announces them (half a day or so I think?).
          From what I can gather (from people’s complaints), when Dawnguard went up for sale yesterday it was incorrectly discounted (at 1200 points). Since been corrected.

  • http://twitter.com/xChrisMatthewsx Chris Matthews

    Why is dawnguard 800msp. Full price is 1200. 50% off. Is 600.

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

    it’s not a good deal because for $20 you can get the GOTY edition in store, you can then share the DLC disk with friends and when you are done with it trade in the game.

    • http://twitter.com/Mikthomson Michael Thomson

      Oblivion’s trade on value is about $4. With cheap points via eBay, I spent about $14 on the game and both dlc. And happy not to deal with a disc.

      • chiron69

        And I bought Fallout : New Vegas Collector’s Edition (With ALL DLC’s) ;) for around 36USD NEW! If I had bought the DLC’s, it would cost me 5×800=4 000 points+the game (90USD for DLC’s + game DVD at 44USD, a total of 134 US dollars! A hundred and thirty four! Tha’s pure crazy, Bethesda, Microsoft! So I paid around 9USD for thee DVD-version (so I can save HDD-space which apparently is very expensive when buying GoD) (Irony). The problem is, not anyone can get these deals (Collector’s edition on DVD) etc, and Bethesda/MS shouldn’t capitalize that much on it, in my mind. Then it get’s too unfair. Equal deals to equal people….. ;-) Happy new year!

  • MacPh1sto

    Thanks for the great GoD deal on Skyrim! Sure, people could wait months from now for a cheaper all-inclusive GotY edition, but for those of us like me looking to play it now, this is the best deal on the 360 version right now. Even Amazon and the big box stores like GameStop and Best Buy don’t have it on sale for any less than $40 now (missed out on the Black Friday deals). Here’s to more great GoD deals in 2013!

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

    lol deal of week is back to its old no good self again.

  • chiron69

    FIFA13 and NHL13 at twice the price as GoD than the DVD’s in the stores? On “sale”? What’s going on, does a “special” ISP lose billions if we’re dowloading them, filling up our drives, at the same time? Me, no comprendo….. Back to Skyrim/Family Guy,,,,, Over.

  • MacPh1sto

    In the Sales & Specials + app, all three of the Puzzle Quest games are 50% off in the Scratch & Match game. Also there’s a free Toy Soldiers biplane avatar prop in the Chain Reaction section.
