    Anyone else thinking of going over to playstation and nintendo next gen? I worry that xbox has been moving to generic media player and besides halo doesnt have the exclusives to hold me.

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

      Don’t hold your breath for a next Gen Nintendo, they only just caught up with the current generation.

  • DaleJ

    Is this because MS wants to dump these games as fast as possible before announcing that the next iteration of Xbox won’t be backwards compatible with 360 digital content or physical media?

    • http://twitter.com/GinsuVictim GinsuVictim

      This isn’t physical merchandise. Why would they need to “dump” anything?

  • http://twitter.com/GinsuVictim GinsuVictim

    Your attitude is the only bullshit I smell.

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

    I need both of you to step back, keep it clean. I have no room on this blog for hateful, personal attacks.


      Very well, perhaps I lost my cool. My appologies Larry.

    If they had an Xbox Live Arcade game sale I might care, but I don’t think I’m going to buy any of these digitally. Plus all of the ones I would possibly want I already own physically and am not going to buy a digital version in addition to the copy I already own. Announce an arcade game sale and I’ll be all over it but I think I’m going to have to pass on this.

    Time to buy a new hard drive…

  • Barry Csonka

    Wow. You were that much of an embarrassment to them? How does that make you feel?


      You’re funny kid, It’s quite obvious you wouldn’t have neither the intestinal fortitude to say that to my face, much less the intellectual fortitude to debate with me about anything over XBL if you life depended on it! If you were any kind a real man (instead of a 21st century digital boy hiding behind his kb, you’d leave your gamertag. Here’s mine son and you can look me up anytime as I’ll be more than happy to put you in your propper place. “PSN Is Garbage”.
      But as usual you don’t have a set.. I would assume you were raised by a single mother no doubt. lol Again count your blessings you are able to get away with running your mouth online to people. I don’t even need to say what would would happen outside your little online world kiddo.
      And I don’t even need to tell you the world of hurt you would be in if you ever graced me with your nerd sarcasm, I already know exactly what woud happen to you. Either way, you’re simply another voiceless, faceless 21st Century digital boy with no backbone. If you had any kind of a set, you’d hit me up over XBL and see how well you fair in a conversation with me son. Don’t bother replying back either as It wont be read by me. You want to continue this? You’re gonna have to play on my medium, STFU or come at me bro. Either way, I’d make a mockery out of you.

        Your little hissy fit with Barry was very entertaining! I’d like to thank you for providing me with some unexpected laughter during my Biopsych class! =D

        • PSN_IS_GARBAGE

          Hissy fit eh? You should see me catch him alone on the streets. You want real entertainment, I’ll provide that for you if you provide the camera!

    So the points price is not matching the $ prices. Any reason for this?

  • elquietone

    The points are not what they should be 4.99 games = 440 points which is fine, 2.99 games are coming up at 480points instead of 240… Can you tell your team to fix these before sale is over?.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mark.d.goodwin Mark Goodwin

    Has Microsoft said with 100% certainty that games will not be compatible on the XBox720. Also if games have to be downloaded, why bother with a dvd/blu ray drive!!

  • http://twitter.com/neilbolt Neil Bolt

    Screwed them over? How so? MS funded a lot of work for nVidia. Without the MS funding nVidia wouldn’t have got into the Motherboard business (which they did quite well in). They are no longer in the motherboard business because they felt Intel screwed them over. Geeze, nvidia gets screwed over by everyone. Maybe nVidia is the problem and not everyone else? Also without the MS funding we probably wouldn’t see stuff like Optimus graphics either, the MS deal helped nvidia a lot.

  • rjmlive

    So I’m curious then, are these games only downloadable and playable on the Xbox or can they be played on the PC as well? I only have Xbox Arcade (4 GB) so I can’t download them to my Xbox. I also don’t have a Live account.

  • http://www.facebook.com/pplatt1969 Paul Platt

    Why can’t I find the sale on XBL? It was there earlier, I bought and am downloading a couple of titles, now I went back to grab a couple more and the only sale items being offered are the Halo games. Where is the rest of it? I know I’m not crazy, I’m download one right now!

  • http://www.facebook.com/rodrigomontaleao Rodrigo Montaleão

    Wow… I’ve paid more for iPad games. Now that’s what I call a sale!! Keep it up, MS.

  • Eric

    Are they all coming out at the same time, or different ones on different days?

  • tingle007

    waitin for the arcade sale, c’mon way of the ninja

    Where is my Batman?

    You guys constantly complain about compatibility. Who cares, you already own a 360 you don’t need it on the new xbox. If you plan on playing old games on new hardware then don’t upgrade… idiots.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lazrus.knight Lazarus Knight

    I’m a bit concerned that Microsoft will abruptly drop all support of the 360 just like they did with the original Xbox. This “Going out of Business Sale” seems to indicate that they plan to do exactly that. Replaying an old game is like visiting an old friend, unfortunately it’s just not profitable for Microsoft unless they find a way to make you pay for the same game twice.

  • Sanglant

    seriously? its the same damn price, why do you think I said what i said.

  • Michael Brinkley

    Why is El Shaddai only discounted on the US Live and not the Australian one? Really wanted to pick it up but I can’t :-(


    It’s the internet kids.. they believe anything can be resolved through a search engine. He simply doesn’t know any better.

  • Knives_and_Faux

    I know, let’s complain about the sale being bullshit because you can’t sort your router out.
    Massive tard.
