    Damn you Microsoft and your Ultimate sale. I want all of them lol

  • Joey Kuhn

    I’m not really sure if any of these are worth getting… someone help me out.

    • http://twitter.com/Tranceplant Yannick Faucher

      CV, 4, 5 = yes. RC and 6 = no.

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

      imo they are all good deals with the exception of raccoon city.

    • http://www.facebook.com/bobthelego99 Allen Fortner

      Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica are really good games. You might not like RE5 or 6, depending on if you like action games or not. Operation Raccoon City really isn’t too great compared to the others.

    • Zachary Miller

      What the other have said, Raccoon City was fun for me, only because I played as a 4 man team with friends, solo on the other hand not so much, the AI isn’t helpful at all. 6, I tried to play, but there should be a demo for that if you want to give it a go before considering it!

  • Gob1in

    Oh wow, today’s games are much more competitive in terms of price. Surprised to see Code Veronica $.05 cheaper in Australia when compared to the US of A.

    Now, which game to buy? I want to do it ASAP, because knowing our luck, prices were done incorrectly and they will be inflated.

    • Thomas Vargas

      i’d say Code Veronica and/or 4 (very good), 5 and 6 are just “good” and raccoon city it’s garbage

      • Gob1in

        Thank you. And eh, good or bad we’re all gamers. We speak the same language. =]

      • http://www.facebook.com/tyler.owens.14019 Tyler Owens

        RE5 is “Very good” in my opinion. I have only rented RE6 and it was just to darn slow.

  • http://www.xbox-united.com/ Scratch

    now This is pretty tempting.

    • http://twitter.com/Tranceplant Yannick Faucher

      Yeah. Even if I own most of these already, i’m kinda tempted to get RE4 because I only have on Gamecube. Playing it HD and getting achievements would be fun… hmmm

  • Cogbert

    I was hoping RE4 would be 4.99.

    • ryder4life22187

      Same here got the ps2 version for 20 bucks many years ago would have liked to add it and replay it for 5 bucks not worth the 10 in my opinion

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

        It worths 10 by far. One of the best 800msp I’ve ever spent in a game. Just my opinion, of course.

    • http://www.facebook.com/805.Michael Michael Fortner

      I didn’t want to, but I did.. I have 3k points so I got RE4, hope I’m not dissapointed.

      • Biagio Di Cioccio Jr

        Most important thing is to change the controller layout to normal Xbox controls. I died a couple of times before I realized that.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516951649 Justin Stewart

        Wow 3k points I’d love to rack up a crapload of points but it’ll be expensive if I did nothing but buy points.

        • BlinkFandango

          I usually buy 4k to 8k points when they go on sale since the games I want never seem to (until now it seems).

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=516951649 Justin Stewart

            smart, let’s just say if I was rich I’d buy 16,000 points or more.

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

        it’s worth it, still prefer the wii version for controls but still loved the HD version of the game

      • Cogbert

        Doubt you will be. It’s worth the 10 bucks but was hoping for less.

      • http://www.facebook.com/805.Michael Michael Fortner

        Nearly done with the game, don’t care for third person view, this game ain’t so great, story sucks.

    • http://www.facebook.com/l0ucifer Dominican Lou

      Yea seriously it’s only about 10 years old.

  • http://twitter.com/luiislp Luiis Cubias

    Im waiting for the kings of fighters 13 and street fighter x Tekken :P hurry up with the fighting games discount

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Brian-Eyekon-Koehler/500773583 Brian Eyekon Koehler

      Hope you dont buy King of Fighters for the online its dead as can be

      • http://twitter.com/luiislp Luiis Cubias

        ohhh woow thats sucks thx for the info.

  • Earthbound_X

    Nice, I was waiting for Code Veronica HD to go on sale, 5 bucks is a good deal. I already got RE4 HD when it was on sale before for the same price.

  • http://twitter.com/anthonygill123 Anthony Gill

    :D i love how in australia resident evil 5 and 6 are $9.95

  • http://twitter.com/williamronholm WillRon

    Wow Code Veronica and Resi 4 are really tempting, hopefully these are the actual prices in Canada as well and not 5-10 dollars more than listed like the Halo sale.

  • http://www.facebook.com/johnnymoonholloway Johnny Holloway

    code veronica is one of the best classic RE games!

    • http://www.facebook.com/johnnymoonholloway Johnny Holloway

      i’ve beaten it about 10 times back when i had a Dream Cast. I even did a knife only run through.

  • http://twitter.com/thomas_hempel Thomas Hempel

    Good one! RE6 for ~10€ (with MSP) is a really neat deal. Now I have hope for the upcoming sales. ;-)

  • Joey Kuhn

    Are CV, 4, and 5 worth getting? I also want to get L4D2 and Orange Box, and possibly even El Shaddai. I have about 4500 MSP. But I don’t know if I should save some of them for games like GRID or Tomb Raider.

    • http://www.facebook.com/sunny.man.7771 Sunny Man

      CV is old-style (survival horror action adventure) RE at its best.

      4,5 are more like Gears of War style TPS, but you can’t shoot and run at the same time.

      5 supports online/offline 2-player coop.

      I enjoyed playing all of them.

  • http://twitter.com/KingHippoz KingHippoz

    I think the Call of Duty’s will be next… I think they are going back and forth. Based on the 3 days sales (H,A,R) but that’s just my opinion. What you all think?

  • http://twitter.com/HotDanceTrax Alex

    I purchased RE4 a while ago, lets say it does not age well and i replayed that game so many times on Gamecube.

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

      I played RE4 recently and thought that it aged pretty well. Enjoyed the game a lot. Maybe it’s because I didn’t play it on Gamecube.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Shane-Langdon/100000289149045 Shane Langdon

    Just bought Resident Evil 6 on disc for 20 bucks or I would grab that up. But I am glad I got Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood so I could see what all the hype with the series was all about. But really looking forward to the “Orange Box” deal and Portal 2. Hoping to get Portal 2 for 5 bucks and Orange Box for 10. Also I may want to pop on Peace Walker if I can get it for 5-10 bones.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Shane-Langdon/100000289149045 Shane Langdon

      Relieved for a day off of this sale honestly.

  • http://twitter.com/_Sherminator_ Jack Walden

    Damn why is RE 4 not the same price as Code Veronica ?!?!

    • ikari_paul

      yeah, shame. would have bought it at 5€/$ also. guess ill pass

  • http://twitter.com/RafaelByGears [CJBr]RaFaeLByGears

    nice price on RE6, i waiting for street fighter x tekken. Brazil here.

  • Shawn Zipay

    I was waiting for RE4 to go on sale for this. Picked it up immediately. Code Veronica at that price was also impossible to pass up. It sure beats hooking up my Gamecube and PS2 to play those!

  • http://twitter.com/_Sherminator_ Jack Walden

    Why is RE 4 double the price of CV? They came at the same time for the same price ?

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

      Probably because RE4 sold way more.

  • ryder4life22187

    Picked up Code Veronica well worth the 5 bucks, but res 4 should have been 5 bucks as well or I would have picked it up even though I never card for it. Why pay 19.99 for res 6 when you can get the disc brand new for that price.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jagg857 Jorge Garza

      Digital games also has pros and cons, for example, you don´t have to worry about scratching your games but I´m agree with you about the price. Digital content should be cheaper.

  • http://www.facebook.com/antonio.galindo.9 Antonio Galindo

    RE4 & RE5 are pretty good specially if you got a buddy to play with. RE:ORC is a joke avoid that one, RE 6 is OK but try 4&5 first

  • http://www.facebook.com/cleiton.m.santos Cleiton Santos

    Code Veronica is the best from the traditional series. Worth every cent of those 5 bucks.

  • Russell Gorall

    These are amazing for the deals put up by MS.

    That being said, for DLC this late in the console’s life these should just be permanent reductions.

  • http://twitter.com/akaFenikkusu Mario Pendleton マリオ

    RE6 is $20 on Amazon regularly. I’m not sure I want any RE games since I have owned them all previously. Where are the games I’m really waiting for?

  • Tink

    In the UK RE4 is £8.99 down from £14.99. They never seem to be 50% over here. I am still going to buy but only because its not available on disc

  • http://twitter.com/Michael67137211 Michael Cunningham

    I still fire up the old consoles to play my collection of vintage RE games.
    Still waiting for Borderlands…………………………………………

  • m1nh0ca

    I just can’t stand why the prices in MSP can’t be the same everywhere, like Arcade Games.

    In US we buy RE: Code Veronica for 400 MSP… in UK it’s 520 MSP.

    Anyway, I’ll consider…

    • http://twitter.com/r3ivajx ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥♡♡♡

      In México I only paid 280MSP. :D

      • m1nh0ca

        Excellent! It’s nice to know that in some places there can be an advantage, then…

        Hora de crear una cuenta mexicana pronto ;-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=576127196 Mark Farrington

    RE4 UK Price £14.99 – 50% Off Price £8.99…. Get your maths right Microsoft, it should be £7.49…. Only £1.50 or a few MS points but still wrong.

  • IntenSePinda

    Euhm.. here in The Netherlands if i want to buy Resident Evil 4 it asks 840 MSP? I thought 800MSP was equal to €10? Please fix this..

    • kellogs307

      yeah, why 840 MSP instead of 800 MSP??? Same conversion error as the first day?

      • http://www.facebook.com/jagg857 Jorge Garza

        Here in México I got RE6 for 1,160 MSP… It would have to be 1,200 I think.

    • http://twitter.com/Biotrigger Jacob Helton

      I don’t know if it’s the same in the Netherlands, but it would be €10 + tax. Hence the extra 40 MSP.

      • kellogs307

        Taxes are never added, it’s a direct rate conversion from local currency to MSP

  • http://ordinarygamer.co.uk/ Dan Etheridge

    I don’t understand. Grid, Call of Juarez etc were $4.99, which was £2.69 for us UK folks, but dirt 2 – which was also $4.99, was £4.49. Now it seems Code Veronica is £4.49, when it’s showing the same price in the US store as the games I got for £2.69.

    Is this going to be fixed, or is it intentional?

    • http://twitter.com/systemaddicted TheSystemAddicts

      Prices are dependent on region – had the same weirdness for some games in Canada. I’ve literally got Assassin’s Creed 1 showing for 19.99 while AC2 is 9.99, Revelations is 14.99 and Brotherhood is 9.99…

      Figure that one out. Heh

      • http://ordinarygamer.co.uk/ Dan Etheridge

        It’s just strange that all games that were $4.99 on the main sale (excluding Dirt and Virtua fighter) were showing as £2.69, but these are not.

      • http://www.facebook.com/dr.badtouch Taylor Novak

        Ubisoft gave you some special “insider” deals. ;)

  • MilkyTee

    This has been a great sale so far.
    Good job Deals team.

  • xboxaus

    funny that assassins sale over and brotherhood still at $39.99 why is that?

  • http://www.facebook.com/l0ucifer Dominican Lou

    Why can’t we have a complete list of what’s coming out and when so I can plan my finances accordingly? I bought the 3 out of 4 I wanted now I just need Dead Island. HOPEFULLY since its $19.99 it will be $9.99 but who knows.

    • http://twitter.com/theandy1 Andy

      Dead Island is very worth it. I can’t see it costing more than $10. Bought the complete edition for $20 awhile back.

      • http://www.facebook.com/l0ucifer Dominican Lou

        Nice, I have money to spend I would just like to know what I am going to but ahead of time. It’s almost like they don’t want people to take advantage of this sale, it’s barely promoted, everyone not in the US gets bent over on the pricing and its like a big mystery regarding what’s going on sale.

    • RampageDeluxe

      Dead Island is an awesome game, bit if you’re one of the few who gets motion sickness from wobbly cameras, then you may want to play it first. Same with Dishonored.

  • Zachary Miller

    I’m glad Microsoft is finally doing sales like this, you should keep doing this on occasion, if so I will buy them! Raccoon City should have been a little cheaper, and I can buy a physical copy of Resident Evil 6(New) for $20 so the classics are the most tempting!

  • http://twitter.com/systemaddicted TheSystemAddicts

    Looks like they’re just sticking with specific Publishers for some of the day onlys – At least so far. Capcom, Ubisoft and MS so far…

  • http://www.facebook.com/john.whisperinphilosopher John Whisperinphilosopher

    Nooooo! Resident evil 6 is actually at 8 pounds (about 13 dollars) and it isn’t available to download in the Middle East!

    • ikari_paul

      that 8 pound price is a UK exclusive, it seems. here in portugal, its £13/15€/20$. shame that Capcom only cares about some of its costumers. Guess i will remember that in the future when buying games

  • http://twitter.com/RockMartini Gabriel Martini

    Major, do you know why RE6 in Brazil is not on the UGSO? The price for me is U$50 / R$99,00 and this is above the normal price too.. sad sad day…

    • ikari_paul

      a nao ser que as pessoas vivam nos estados unidos ou reino undio, a microsoft nao quer saber delas :-S basta ver pela oferta do live gold

  • Red Blitzman

    I would have bought RE4 and RE5 buy they’re almost twice as expensive here in the UK ($13.64). Twice the amount of US prices? Some ultimate sale. I’ll pick them up as preowned hard copies. They’re still cheaper that way and it won’t take up any more space on my overpriced xbox HDD. Microsoft don’t really seem to understand how pricing should work for downoadable games (here’s a hint, they should be cheaper than retail!)

    New games come out for around the £40 mark here, but if you’d like to download the digital copy from live at launch it costs £60. £20 more than physical media. Soooo stupid.

  • http://twitter.com/Rody2k9 Rodrigo DeAraujo

    Can’t wait to see the deal on the Metal Gear Solid HD collection and Dishonored. Also, why no Rainbow Six Vegas 2 on the deals?

    • http://twitter.com/Nitramuse Nitramuse

      You don’t know yet… I believe the list Major posted a while ago wasn’t the full list…

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

    I would buy Code Veronica and RE4 if those were all $4.99… :(

    Remember that this RE5 isnt the gold edition so doesnt worth a penny (specially considering that Crapcom put the DLC on the disc)

    RE6 is a joke.

    Raccoon City should be renamed o Resident Evil: Bugged Zombies from the Outerspace

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

      RE6 was beast to me. i didn’t like 5 so much. i am one of the few that liked RE6. I also like Aliens: Colonial Marines and Deadly Premonition so that might tell you something.

      • http://twitter.com/JonasPolsky Jonas Polsky

        Yeah, it tells you that you enjoy awful, awful games.

        • Cogbert

          Yes, yes it does.

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

          cod only fan, i’m guessing? i guess i just like games other than cod, though i like it too.

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

        If you liked Colonial Marines search for the Original AVP2. Although it have Predators that is what I call a awesome fps ;)

  • bdavid81

    Resident Evil 6 was $30 during Black Friday but that still wasn’t low enough for me to bite that bullet.

  • Guest

    Resident Evil 6 showing up as £8.99 / 1040 Points here in the UK, still don’t know if i want it. Picked up RE CV and 4 though.

  • gerblanski
