Deal By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

    Right it’s been acknowledged that the prices haven’t been changed and they’re going to start fixing the prices but isn’t it a bit late for that? It’s great they’re being fixed but I’d like some word as to whether these deals are only good until the morning when tomorrows deals would have normally gone up or if they’ll be extending the deal so we get 24 hours to purchase the games that are on sale.

    I’m just heading off to bed because I need to be up in the morning. I’ll be a bit annoyed if the deals are only good until the morning and I miss out on some good games.

    • Shane

      i agree. They said is start at 6am. So for me it took them 9 1/2 hrs to acknowledge the problem. 9 1/2 hrs of complaints, yet 5 or more hrs of Gears updates. Glad they mentioned it, but come on.
      They should extend it to regions where the sale has already ended, or offer them a better discount

    orange box is showing up as 9.99 for me. Waiting for Civ Revolution price to go down.

      Looks like those prices might be getting fixed now! Hurray!

  • gary n

    for gods sake. why is everyone panicking and acting immature saying this will be their last Microsoft console, we will get a update, get a grip all of you!

    • Shane

      I think its just the fact (depending where you live) it took almost 10hrs for them respond about it. And they have, and im happy about it. But it seems like a lot are gonna end up missing it due to ‘snag’. But like i said, they responded, so I will look into a 720 in a few years.

    Hey Gary, this is the last time I buy a Micro$haft console. Just kidding!

  • http://twitter.com/YedHood Yehudah Petscher

    Civilization is updated now too.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Dale.D.Sickler Dale Sickler

      not mine..damn it

  • http://www.facebook.com/Dale.D.Sickler Dale Sickler

    I really want to buy MSG collection =(

  • Thomas

    This has been a rather poor sale for Canadians. Most of the $4.99 titles have been $14.99 here. Sony has much better sales and more consistent pricing between regions. I have always liked the 360 more but Sony is doing a lot more to garner loyalty among their users. It’s telling that It doesn’t feel like it’s worth renewing my Xbox Live membership but I look forward to the PS Plus updates every week even though the PS3 in the house isn’t mine.

  • Ryan

    Orange Box is now $9.99 on the US marketplace. It’s a must buy if you’ve never played it.

    • http://twitter.com/elkornu Jorge T Gonzalez

      i wonder if people still play TF2

      • Getsuga_Tensho

        Hardly anyone does but there will probably be a few more players lurking around in multiplayer if they are actually able to grab the game at the discounted price in time.

        The MP for TF2 on the Xbox is something you could give a miss anyhow, there’s still exploits and bugs in there that will never be fixed and the host options allow the host to change class limits on the fly letting them set up and adjust the game so they’ll win every time.

    Cheers for giving us regular blog updates on the Day 6 deals situation, Major. I really appreciate your clear and frequent communication, and my compliments to the Xbox team for how quickly they got to work on fixing our paid service when things didn’t quite go according to plan. On a Sunday, too!.

    I’ll tell you what you could and should do though, run Day 6′s deals alongside Day 7′s.

      Are they all showing up for you? I checked four games: Orange Box was down to $9.99, but Fallout 3 an, Left 4 Dead 2, and Max Payne 3 weren’t down at all.

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

    I’m in Canada and none of these sales are working. they sy 9.99 etc. but i go to peace walker and it is still 19.99??? I seriously don’t understand why it is so hard for you guys to get things right. So I want to buy a game on sale and I can’t. Way to go Microsoft

    • marth dikky

      Recheck mine are all down except L4D2 Max Payne and peace walker

  • J. B.

    MGS2/3 HD still 2000+. A second ago it was 840. But that isnt right either. 9.99 = 800 msp. Region: NL

    • Shane

      Newfoundland?

      • J. B.

        Netherlands

        • Shane

          awwwe. Same initials lol

      • Shane

        Sh*ty

  • J. B.

    Why is MGS2/3 HD 840 msp? what the hell is this for a kind of price?

    • J. B.

      Nevermind. Fixed

    • Philipp

      Is it Metal Gear Solid today?! How much is it usually?

      • http://www.facebook.com/Dale.D.Sickler Dale Sickler

        2 and 3 is 24.99 peace walker 19.99 suppose to be 9.99 each today

        • JoseAntonioHernandez

          I’ve picked Mgs 2&3 for 400 msp

          • J. B.

            what the heck? I had to pay 840msp, and 320 for peace walker

      • J. B.

        From 2140 for 840 msp 24.99 euros down to 9.99 euro for the mgs2/3 hd, same for peace walker

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

    well im seriously thinking ps4 now

    • Getsuga_Tensho

      The sale has been very poorly managed today but I hardly think that calls for being your reason to get a PS4 instead of the next Xbox.

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

        its not just today. its almost everytime a big sale or something happens. They also messed up the points on the first day. Plus being from Canada half the stuff is overpriced when our dollar is at parity with US.

        • Getsuga_Tensho

          You’ve got a point there. Main thing that’s bugging me now is MGS 2 and 3 have been discounted in the UK but it’s 1040MSP here and from what I’m reading it’s supposed to be 800MSP with Peacewalker at the same price.

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

            well they finally got it right. im getting peace walker for 680 points

  • T.W.

    Max Payne is still missing.
    Fallout = 160 MP / MGS 2/3 = 400 MP / Orange Box = 400 MP…
    Great prices here.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=581600336 Hamish Carder

      Orange Box for 400 mp?? Where do you live? It’s 1040 here in England.

      • T.W.

        I live in Switzerland.

  • http://www.facebook.com/yaumgui Guillaume Perrin

  • http://www.facebook.com/isaac.clarke.186 Isaac Clarke

    Why the hell is Arkham Asylum the only game listed as 50% off today?
    I was really looking forward to buying Max Payne 3 for $15 but it’s still listed as $40!

  • Shane

    That was yesterday

  • Barry Csonka

    You have anger issues lil buddy. I suggest you seek professional help.

    Btw the guys name from RE Was Barry Burton, but you were close :)

  • Dny Playa

    It has nothing to do with taxes or currency, nor did I ever say that. It has to do with business strategy and demand. Also, people don’t become successful by doing what everybody else does. “Sticky that into your brain,” kid.

    GRID is $5 for those who don’t have a Copy. (It comes with 1000 Achievement Points.)

    • gary

      $15 AUD lame price.

  • http://thecrimsonemo.deviantart.com/ AshtonNextGen

    I browsed the games on demand section of the marketplace and clicked on each individual game on Getsuga_Tensho’s list:
    Batman Arkham Asylum is £2.69 / 320MSP
    Fallout 3 is £4.69 / 520MSP
    Left for Dead 2 is £4.49 / 520MSP
    Max Payne 3 is £4.49 / 520MSP
    Metal Gear Solid HD is £8.99 / 1040MSP
    Metal Gear Solid Peacewalker £4.49 / 520MSP
    Sid Meier’s Civilization Revolution is £4.49 / 520MSP
    Orange Box is £8.99 / 1040MSP

    Though it seems to vary from person to person, for some its still showing the standard prices, others have been able to access the daily deals hub all day.

    The rest can be debated, but left for dead 2 is a definite steal for £4.49 as its currently £29.99 brand new on amazon uk.
    Damn, I’d buy them all if I could… I really would…

  • Barry Csonka

    No actually you were very very wrong, as my name has nothing to do with RE. It’s my real name.

    And threatening to beat people up over the internet is very sad. You need a hobby.

    • PSN_IS_GARBAGE

      Um, I’m done arguing about your pitiful name and it’s relation to RE. if you had a brain cell in that pea sized brain of yours you would know I didn’t threaten you. I was merely stating a fact… You ever talk about my family to my face, You would be on the way to the ICU. That’s not a threat, or a promise, it’s quite simply a fact.

      Deal with it. If you doubt me, send me a message over live or shut your mouth. It’s quite simply actually kid.

      • Barry Csonka

        lol

        • PSN_IS_GARBAGE

          Same lame brain one line response I see..

          • Barry Csonka

            Next time I’ll try harder to typing out a long, boring wall of text like yours :)

          • PSN_IS_GARBAGE

            That long wall of text took me 30 seconds to type. Your replies are equivilent to that of a 10 year old child where as mine are thought provoking and relevant. Any adult here can clearly see this.

            Maybe if you didn’t have the attention span of a 10 year kid with ADD you could have comprehended it it. And I thought I was the one who was clueless? Haha!

          • Barry Csonka

            Settle down there Little Orphan Annie. You can be as boring as you want, and don’t let anyone tell you different ;)

  • Nikolai Grinev

    All the games I wanted in this sale. Bought Fallout NV and Batman AC. Thought about Dishonored, the price was great, but 2 games are enough for me

  • Barry Csonka

    zzzzz

    Sorry I fell asleep during that rant. Did you say something?

    • PSN_IS_GARBAGE

      Oh I’ll put you to sleep alright, but not in that context.. :) All that needs to be said really is that you are a typical 21st Century Digital boy, internet forum nerd who hides behind his annonymity by making snarky stupid remarks to people to make up for the turmoil you faced in high school.
      A stereotypical TEXTBOOK EXAMPLE If I ever did see one. Any wise adult already knows what is wrong with your entire generation.. and it all starts with the internet kid.. :)

      • Barry Csonka

        Was your mom hot?

        • PSN_IS_GARBAGE

          Haha, you never fail to prove my point do you? As I said… Textbook example right here!
          One thing you need to start realizing SON, is I’m the one here who manipulates YOU, NOT the other way around junior! :) LOL Other people’s children..

          • Barry Csonka

            So she was a fatty. Gotcha.
