Arcade, Deal, Game Add-on, Marketplace, Xbox 360 Games On Demand By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson


    You bring up alot of valid points in this. Nice to see someone bring these issues to Major Nelson’s attention. Although I still prefer the 360 tenfold over the PS3, I gotta agree with alot of what you said here. The gold paywall for all the apps and using internet explorer is such a slap in the face towards us consumers. It’s about time MS starts to realize this and change their ways.

    • BlinkFandango

      Hopefully he actually reads it and responds, but I doubt MS actually cares about giving customers good deals any more.

    Been waiting forever for the Blacks Ops Zombies Pic Pack to go on sale. Thanks Microsoft.

      lol me too. in fact that is all i have been waiting for for like 3 years now.

  • uss_liberty

    Zombie, Zombie, Zombie, Zombie, Zombie…
    Thank the gods that game developers always have new fresh ideas…

  • Awesome Wells

    Errr…where did the Skyrim DLC go?

    Dude, your sarcasm meter is broken.

    its because of microsoft points, once you buy them microsoft have your money, how many people have profiles with at least 80 or 100msp left on them and nothing to spend them on. it has to be the reason the sales are crap, if it was credit card or paypal only the sales would be of steam value.

    • BlinkFandango

      I don’t think it’s that, I’m pretty sure you can buy stuff with a credit card now and prices haven’t gotten any better.

  • m1nh0ca

    Yeah, I know… but when it was on sale I was not interested… and the last time it happened was more than a year ago.

    So, it’s time to happen again :-)

  • Getsuga_Tensho

    Why were Hearthfire and Dawnguard removed from the list? I was sure they were there in the list yesterday under Skyrim.

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

      they wanted to keep the deals at a certain level which is low. having something people might want would change their rep a little and they wanted to be consistent.

    I’m so glad I’m not a Gold subscriber.

    Hopefully the way MS keeps pushing discounted 12-month cards at $40 down our throats it is a hint people are not buying the Gold membership scheme anymore.

  • http://twitter.com/chipper_95 Paul Cotter

    Ha, I guess Major Nelson was hoping nobody would notice his stealth removal of the only content that should’ve been on the Deal of the Week (Skyrim DLC). Well guess what, we noticed!

  • http://twitter.com/joshlaforme Josh LaForme

    major has this list been edited to remove the skyrim dlc from being on sale, I swear it was on there at first

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

      Indeed it has. That is why I added “Edited: List corrected on 2/12/12″ Apparently the Skyrim add-ons were mistakenly included on the list I was given. Sorry about that.

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

        the team should be embarrased honestly because they come up with bad deals and then they put something good in by mistake only to remove it. so lame. i really hope that no one actually gets paid to negotiate these deals because that would be wasted money when a monkey could push the red, green, or yellow button to put up the same lame deals every week. oh i am sorry i don’t mean deal, i meant insults.

  • iamdanight

    please respond is skyrim dlc going up on sale next week. If ill just pick up spelunky

  • chiron69

    I had originally quit commenting these “deals” every week, since it only made me more and more frustrated. But this week’s deals, gives me the proof I need that Microsoft choose the titles because of themselves (together with the publishers), and not for the customers.

    It’s only so they can sell titles that have stopped selling, not deals that could interest us in trying new gems that really hides itself on Xbox Live.
    It’s sad, and I wonder if I’m going to look for another platform, together with the news that Microsoft will try to “kill” the market for used games, by demanding the Xbox 720 users to be connected to the internet, just to start our games, that we’ve alreaduy paid for when the time comes.
    I think MS got to have a “user-minded employee” in all the future bord meetings, to try to get through that it’s the customers that keep the console mareket alive, not just the publishers..
    It is WE that keep you alive by buying your consoles and titles. I sometimes feel that Microsoft have forgot this, unfortunately…..

    Thanks for letting me “ventilate, and have a great day! ;-)

    Best regards from

    lol the good stuff aka the skyrim dlcs were removed leaving garbage. i’m done looking at these sales every week. last straw. it was fun till it wasn’t. no thanks for the memories.

    Some days ago, on this post was written that the DLCs for Skyrim would be 50% off from February 19 to 25 and, because of that, I bought a 2100mp prepayed card for take advantage from the offer. Today I discover that it won’t be that!

    I really need an explanation on this.

  • iamdanight
