  • roozbeh

    First comment.

    • Bennijin

      Achievement unlocked.

      • roozbeh

        Probably worth 1G

        • Bennijin

          Not even.

          • roozbeh

            Well that was wasted effort

  • Aaron Griffin

    Mass Effect 3 DLC on sale?!? YAY! Picking up Omega DLC in addition to already buying Bulletstorm. Can’t wait to see what will be next in the “Ultimate Game Sale”. And almost forgot… NEW WALKING DEAD!!!! Friday can’t come soon enough. This is definitely a great week for Xbox.

  • roozbeh

    But seriously what about that new dlc for borderlands 2. Tiny someting

    • Aaron Griffin

      Wouldn’t be on sale the week after it came out. Too soon.

      • Bennijin

        Not for Steam, right guys? Right?
        No really, right? I mean I dunno.

        • roozbeh

          So confusing. What r you meaning to say

        • Jim McPherson

          Why and how would the Xbox Marketplace have a Steam Sale?

      • roozbeh

        Oh well I will get the others

        • KingWulfgar

          Get Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dungeon Keep at full price. Well worth the $10 and I’m guessing it won’t be on sale for a while. Let me reiterate–it’s well worth the $10!

  • Bennijin

    Can someone point out to me which Borderlands 2 DLCs are and are not in the Season Pass? I may pick up those that aren’t then hold out for a discount on the pass itself.
    That or just wait for a GOTY.

    Also yaaaay Dishonored! Perfect timing for me, I’ve just got the base 1000G for that!
    I did grab the Dunwall City Trials when it was 160 for that one day only deal, but I’ll be picking up The Knife of Dunwall.
    Would have been nice to see Void Walker’s Arsenal drop for those that don’t have it though. Anyone know what’s going on with The Witches of Brigmore?

    • roozbeh

      All of them are on the season pass. Dont buy these

      • Bennijin

        Off the top of my head I thought Ultimate Vault Hunter and Mechromancer weren’t?

        • roozbeh

          Damn I thought you wrote dishonoured. Sorry dude small accident.

          • Bennijin

            There is no Dishonored season pass…

          • roozbeh

            Well dont know about dishonoured tbh. So I dont know. Again small accident

          • Jared

            sorry there is not

        • Jim McPherson

          Mechromancer was a preorder bonus.
          Ultimate Vault Hunter, I think, was a free patch in for everyone.

          • MysticWeirdo

            UVH was only free for season pass holders.

          • Jim McPherson

            Oh ok. I didn’t notice, since I bought the season pass on game launch day anyway.

      • roozbeh

        The dumb a $$ who wrote this thought he meant dishonoured

    • Travis Boswell

      Psycho Bandit and Mechromancer (the two additional characters) are not included with the Season Pass.

    • Professor Anatil

      Campaign DLC (Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon’s Keep) are all part of the Season Pass.

      Everything else (Mechromancer Pack, Psycho and Ultimate Vault Hunter Packs) are not part of the Season Pass.

      • Jeffery Taylor

        The Ultimate Vault Hunter upgrade is part of the season pass.

  • http://raptr.com/unscleric/about UNSCleric

    This is amazing stuff. Loving Xbox Live even more lately just as I hit my 10-year anniversary a week or two ago. I’ll be getting all the Borderlands 2 and Dishonored DLC.

    • Bryan2Blazed

      You need help.

      • Professor Anatil

        Considering a statement that is an opinion can never inherently be wrong or right I see nothing wrong with what he said. Different people prefer different things. He loves Xbox Live. You don’t. To each their own.

    • Jared

      This going to be my 3 year on xbox live yea

    • roozbeh

      Almost a year and a half now. Shames me that I was on the darkside. At least im in the light now

      • http://raptr.com/unscleric/about UNSCleric

        Welcome to the best gaming platform money can buy.

    • DaeJim

      Congratz! :)

      • http://raptr.com/unscleric/about UNSCleric

        Aw, thank you. :)

  • Jared

    Dishonored GonD yes $15 or $10 what do you think

    • Pickleofwar

      Deal of the week is very well… weak so don’t bet on it. You might hit lucky though.

  • NJPW

    Hey Major, why isn’t Lost Odyssey on Games on Demand? MS published it yet, you can’t buy it from their own service. :(

    • Professor Anatil

      I agree, that one needs to be available. I personally feel it’s the best RPG on the 360 and it’s a tie for the best RPG of this generation of consoles.

      • Bennijin

        Just a shame after LO and Blue Dragon MS decided to just let the bulk of JRPGs go to the PS3 or Wii and did nothing to attract developers into at least releasing on 360 as well.
        Heck, some of those like Vesperia and Eternal Sonata were previously 360 RPGs with extra content!

        I not too long ago finished Magna Carta 2, a hard to find Korean-made 360 exclusive from 2009 and it’s now one of my most favourite games. Definitely up there with the best.

        • Professor Anatil

          I think that the people at MS just don’t really know the RPG market and expected LO and Blue Dragon to sell millions when no JRPG series does except the Final Fantasy. All the others that have sold over a million or more copies have been WRPGs – Mass Effect, Dragon Age and Fallout series – but all of those have been around for a long time or at least the companies had a good track record on PC.

          Microsoft pretty much gave up on RPGs after Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon and I think that scared off the third-party developers except for Namco Bandai with Magna Carta 2 and Square Enix with a few.

          Which, Magna Carta 2 is a pretty good game actually. I’ve played it before but it’s sitting on my shelf right now of ones I need to play again. Thanks for reminding me about that one.

    • Jeffery Taylor

      There aren’t any multi-disc games on Games on Demand. LO is 4 discs.

      • NJPW

        LA Noire is 3 discs and The Witcher 2 is 2 discs and they are both on Games on Demand though I think those are the only two multiple discs games there. Still it shows that it can be done.

        • Pickleofwar

          There’s a few actually, max Payne 3 and dead space 2 included

        • Jared

          Look AT ME2 IT Got 2 Discs too you know

  • mcmax3000

    Only the Walking Dead DLC for me.

  • TheDude767

    Nice list, I’ll get the MGRR DLC and The walking dead !!! And probably the robocop suit for my avatar xD

    • Pickleofwar

      I’m going ahead to say MGRR will be tomorrow’s big sale game :D I really love MGS

  • Jared

    Where is Halo 3 is it Halo 3 was going to be free today Larry

    • roozbeh

      Revert to the grid page. Theres an explanation there

    • Matthew Kenealy

      Not yet. Defense Grid: The Awakening is free at the moment. Assasin’s Creed 2 and Halo 3 are coming later this year.

  • Bryan2Blazed

    They took Halo 3 and AC3 away cause we were bad. We didn’t go along with their DRM plan and now we must be punished.

    • roozbeh

      Take a moment to review e3. They didnt say this month. News outlets suck.

      • Bryan2Blazed

        They let everybody think it though. Trying to make themselves look better. More lies and deceit. You blind fanboys will learn soon enough after they turn DRM back on in a year or two on xbone.

        • roozbeh

          Lies From the news outlots not ms

        • A. J.

          Sony insisted on heavy DRM for Blu-ray. Some older Blu-ray players don’t work with newer Blu-ray movies because they updated the DRM on it.

          Sony also had CD’s that installed rootkits on people’s PC’s a while back. Basically, they silently installed a virus on legitimate customers’ machines for the sake of DRM.

          Sony insisted on an expensive and proprietary memory card for the Vita, all for the sake of anti-piracy.

          Finally, Sony removed the OtherOS feature from the PS3 a few years after launch just because they wanted to. Removing a feature whenever you want, that would be DRM.

          • Bryan2Blazed

            None of these thing are true except the Vita memory card. You are sick. Tell your mother you need to start going to therapy. Go look at the cover of the new Edge magazine. Xbox one is done. Go drink bleach.

          • A. J.

            Blu-ray: Search Gizmodo for “Blu-ray Spec Change May Cause Problems For Old Players”

            Rootkit: Google “Sony Rootkit”. There is an article on Wikipedia

            Vita memory card: you confirmed

            OtherOS: Google “Sony OtherOS”. There is a nice article on it titled “Judge Says OtherOS Removal Was A Bad Business Decision But Not Illegal”

            Please provide some substance with your posts. It sounds like all you are doing is complaining, being very rude (“You blind fanboys…” and “Go drink bleach”), and posting false information.

          • Jayarih

            Actually at least the CD rootkit is true, there was a class action lawsuit about 10 or so years ago that I remember getting a check for due to the practices Sony had with some CDs

          • roozbeh

            Yeah alright. Just go to a ps4 forum if u like sony this much. Whats wrong with u honestly. Raging on an xbox forum dont u have anything esle to do.

        • Andrew Falkenhan

          Here’s the quote from E3:

          “…to kick off that program, I’d like to share just two of the titles that we’re gonna offer over the next few months: Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed 2.”

          How does this even say that they’re gonna be the free games for July?

    • Matthew Kenealy

      They stated “later this year.” They will be coming in a later Free Games for Gold month.

  • safdf

    For this kind of offers is why I never let my account to renew automatically.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      i never set anything to autorenew but thats just me.

  • Matthew Kenealy

    What is Kinect Central: Mass Effect 3 Omega and Kinect Central: Power Ranger Super Samurai?

    • Aaron Griffin

      The first one is just the Omega DLC for Mass Effect 3. It just say the “Kinect Central” part because I assume thats the area of the dashboard you access it from. Thats at least where I found it and it was at the sale price.

    • Jason Swartzendruber

      ME3 is a “Better with Kinect” game, thus the DLC can be labeled as Kinect Central. I can’t speak for the Power Rangers game though, as well….. it’s Power Rangers. *shudder*

  • DieJason

    Most Borderlands 2 DLC is now on sale, but Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty is still 800msp Technical error? Will be grabbing that and the rest of the BL2 DLC too, thanks for the great week of specials MS.

    • KingWulfgar

      Yeah, I’m still waiting for that one to change to the sale price too!

      • DieJason

        Seems like the Psycho Pack is also not marked down yet.

  • Bryan2Blazed

    So 1 free horrible 4 years old XBLA game this month and not 2 free games like was said at E3. Thank God I have had gold for 4 years straight. Thank you for this wonderful gift. I am forever in debt to you for this present master Micr$oft.

    • A. J.

      How about I let you in on a little secret. The free game, Defense Grid, is only on sale for 14 days. That is about 1/2 of a month. The other half of the month will be a different game. I spoke with some Math guru’s at MIT, and they said that 1 game every 1/2 month comes out to be 2 games every month. Crazy, huh?

      • Bryan2Blazed

        Why don’t they announce what game is coming then smart guy? I dunno maybe give people something to look forward to. Know why they haven’t? Because they are giving us another throw away game. They know if they announce it now people will go nuts with more hate then they already have for this joke of a company.

        • DaeJim

          I know it’s old but Defense Grid is far from a throw away game. It’s a great game and addictive :p

        • A. J.

          “Smart guy”, thanks for the compliment.

          Is it the norm for companies to announce their sales or special deals way in advance? Major Nelson sometimes gives a few days notice, but usually not. I haven’t seen Steam announce ahead of time what will be on sale. And aside from Black Friday, Walmart and Best Buy don’t usually do it either. It seems strange that you assume that Microsoft should be obligated to.

          Take Halo 3 for example. Do you think anyone is going to buy the digital copy of it now that it has been announced that it will be free soon? Of course not. The more games they announce ahead of time, the less money they will make. Once again, other stores generally act the same way.

          Also, Defense Grid got an 8.2 Metacritic score. While that isn’t a foolproof way to grade a game, it does imply that it should be a good one. I haven’t played it myself, so I can’t say for sure. But that makes it sound like it isn’t a throw away game.

        • Andrew Falkenhan

          So 1 game out of possibly 10 that you don’t like and they’re a joke? What logic!

        • Pickleofwar

          If Microsoft is a “joke of a company” why do you but their products

    • roozbeh

      Did you see e3 like I told you. No you didnt they didnt promise those games for this month

  • StormRaging

    Mass Effect 3: Citadel going to be on sale any time soon?

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      why didn’t me3 just have a season pass? i would have liked that.

  • Verachi

    Mass Effect 3: Omega half off? Sold! I’ve been waiting for this DLC to drop down in price.

    • Aaron Griffin

      Same with me. Now I just need to pick up Citadel. Hoping this sale is a sign that the other DLC will be on sale soon too.

      • Verachi

        Citadel is great, I heard really good things about it so I got it full price. Hopefully you’ll be able to get it soon.

    • Jason Swartzendruber

      Funny how I literally tweeted @masseffect last night asking if there would be a DLC sale for ME3 any time soon. So this was a nice surprise. :)

  • http://twitter.com/rogXue rogXue

    Picked up Omega, wish Citadel was on sale (the games been out long enough for it to be) also is it just me or is the BL2 DLC not discounted yet?

    • Professor Anatil

      Some of it is, just the UVH Upgrade Pack, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt and Mr Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage. Hopefully they get the rest discounted correctly soon, I want to add them to my download queue.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      lol its actually cool they put that in the kinect deal b/c usually the kinect deals are crappy.

      • http://twitter.com/rogXue rogXue

        I thought it was odd until I remembered the better with kinect tag on the box lol I’ll take whatever ME3 dlc discounts I can get.

  • Hugoku

    Definitely looking forward to a big Dishonored discount. If it’s $10 i’ll grab it definitely.

    As for the Ultimate Game Sale? I’d say it’s awesome.

  • Mr XBob

    Those are the same people who believe AAA titles launch on Steam at $4.99 – they’re ignorant to the facts :)

    • roozbeh

      50 bucks for those who don’t know

  • Jorge Garza

    Far Cry is going for $20 bucks/1,600 MSP! Sweeeeeeeeeet!!!

    • Jason Renfro

      I sell that game for $5 bucks now that is no deal.

      • AC130

        Why would you sell it??

        • Jason Renfro

          Own a gamestore and try to keep everything around 5 bucks

  • Jamie Hudson

    Same here if it does get reduced i’m getting it because that works out cheaper than the season pass.

  • A. J.

    In their defense, Steam has far more sales than XBL does, and the prices are typically lower. Not always, but it’s usually the case. I honestly think that PC gaming is cheaper than console over the long term.

    • roozbeh

      Nah. Software wise Definitely but hardware heck no

      • A. J.

        All it took for me to convert my 4 year old PC into one that could play Diablo 3 with mostly hires settings was a $100 video card last year. And that upgrade made my PC a whole lot more powerful than an XBox. You can build a Windows PC for $300 pretty easily, and then get a $100 GPU. Then you have the cost the cost of XBL or PSN+ per year. Finally, you could realistically estimate a 25% premium for console games.

        Also, if you already have a PC, you can save a lot of costs by converting it into a gaming PC with a video card upgrade.

        I’m not console bashing. I do almost all of my gaming on my Xbox 360 and I’ve got an X1 pre-ordered. But I’ll readily admit that I prefer consoles for reasons other than price.

        • roozbeh

          Yeah I know. But consoles in my view are cheaper if u are smart and get a good price for gold or ps plus. I myself don’t have a problem with the money I like consoles for the less complicated things compared to pc

          • A. J.

            I’ll disagree with you on the overall price part, but I do agree with them being less complicated. Like I said, I’ve got a Day One X1 reserved at Amazon, and I’m really excited about it.

          • roozbeh

            Me too.bit I haven’t pre ordered the xbox one.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    the main thing on that i see that is interesting is the July 5 release date of 400 days. oh and the omega dlc.

  • ungeheier

    Steve Ballmer is the head of the Xbox division now? I can’t wait for next year’s E3…

    Gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers, gamers….

    • Ex0ticViru5

      It’s only temporary…he will be replaced by someone else soon.

      • roozbeh

        Bill Gates returns.

    • Z4M0

      Like the Buggles’ song …E3 killed the Xbox one’s star… poor guy, and looks like he’s up to be zynga’s savior or something in the likes… I wish both Steve and Don best.

    • Bennijin

      I hope it IS about gamers!

  • ADZIE

    waiting for tomb raider.

    • Pickleofwar

      Good game if its under £15 buy it nothing to special though, I’m waiting for metal gear rising revengeance and I’m done (unless I find a killer deal)

  • Zorse

    So are these US only or what? The in game store for Borderlands 2 reflects these reductions, but when you continue to pay for them they return to their normal price. Coming from the UK btw.

  • Jason Renfro

    It’s about damn time they truly figured out how to combat used game sales. Discount your products. I have been screaming this for the last six years. I own a game store and hate buying and selling used stuff if it isn’t a cartridge. Now if they can just figure out that every game made is NOT worth $59.99 at launch they could really be onto something. I have a library of over 9000 used games in my store but that Borderlands 2 deal is looking pretty good for my hard drive right now.

    • Jason Renfro

      I always trade-in my excess inventory to GameStop and had a little chuckle over the pile of Fable III on the bottom shelf. That is near useless inventory now thanks to the Games for Gold program. Now if you guys could make it as good as the free games on PSN+ you are on to something.

      • Jason Renfro

        One more idea would be to discount the digital version of CoD and other major realeases. It would keep me from turning them over for a full year at hefty margins. Games like that make up the lion’s share of what is important at the brick and mortar level. It would have a substantial impact on Gamestop’s bottom line immediately and would not effect the realized profits to the developers because you would simply be removing the cost to get it to retail.

      • TV Junkie

        Heh, I work at W*lmart and we have a ton of Fable III copies as well – I had basically the same reaction as you when I saw that went free. I’ll die from laughter if BF3 or Medal of Honor go free.

  • Che

    Psycho Pack is still 800 MSP (Psycho Bandit?).

  • Samuelxc

    :pppppppppppppp

  • Che

    Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty is still 800 MSP, too

  • Drjimbo32

    Some of the borderlands 2 dlc hasn’t dropped yet. An error on their part or yours? Was hoping the Creature Slaughterdome and Psycho Bandit would be on sale too :-/

    • Alex hernandez

      they just forgot to update it don’t worry it’ll be on sale all week

      • Drjimbo32

        Hope so. Thanks for the response!

  • Z4M0

    CAPSIZED took ages to see the light on XBOX 360… glad to see it’ll be 800 msp.

    • mightywombat

      Yeah, indiePub dropped it back in 2011, and then the dev got Namco Bandai to pick it up, so it will definitely be nice to finally play it! Having a Gamerscore max of 400 now is at least some consolation for the delay.

  • BlinkFandango

    Wow, great sales + Omega DLC + Dishonored DLC next week. I’m excited for digital pricing on Xbox One.

    • Guest

      Don’t get your hopes up. With the 180 on the DRM and the second hand market still being alive on the Xbox One, there won’t be many radical pricedrops for content as they devalue the industry and the Xbox One may not be able to support that now.

  • Ian

    FINALLY my patience has paid off! Omega is on sale. You can now have my money!
    Also, I’m pretty impressed with some of these sales (including the game sale). It ain’t Steam, but it’s within range to make me think about pulling out that credit card…

  • gerblanski

    V.A.T.

    • Antarael Dulacre

      So how do you explain that Divinity II is 20€ here and 5 bucks in the US…VAT? lol

      • gerblanski

        Region specific sale.

        • slasaru

          Region-specific greed it is
          Europe needs a good MS representative who will regulate such things

  • gerblanski

    Captain Scarlett and her Pirate’s Booty is still 800 points for me, tried asking Major but doubt i’ll get a response.

  • Jesus

    When are they going to update borderlands 2 dlc?

  • Car

    Where is Scourge: Outbreak?

  • Robtroy

    V.A.T only happens when these big companies want max profits from new games and pre-ordered consoles majority of games are $59.99 to our £39.99 sounds abount right but now next GEN console is $499 or to the British £430 which is equivelant of $649 so why is currency exchange different for games than it is for consoles. I know and it’s not V.A.T it’s just pure GREED why are the British or Europeans paying up to $155 more than Americans, well that’s plain and simply that’s were there biggest sales are, they don’t care about other consumers that been with them for 7 or 8 yr.

    • gerblanski

      VAT is government lead.

      The SRP of games in the UK was £49.99, its just that no-one sells them at that level anymore.

      $499 is the price without sales tax, which is different state to state.
      Whereas £499 is inclusive of VAT. Do the Maths.

      I’m pretty sure North America is the Xbox 360s biggest market.

      • slasaru

        No it is not, european market is larger, though it consists of many regions
        Even if US market is big, they are making LESS money on it, with smaller prices. But that should be, it is a sort of patriotic thing and is normal

    • slasaru

      Agree with you…
      In Russia it will cost 700 USD, can you imagine that
      The good thing still is they launch it here this year

      i think, MS done in Europe
      People will buy PS4 for may be 450 USD

      Though i personally will go for xbox

  • Adam Crestani

    What the heck, could not find a place fast enough to post my joy about borderlands 2 and bulletstorm I got for 9.99 and 4.99, all I here is pure hate about Microsoft and sale prices, ho.w could you hate on these prices, there’s other games also

    • Nathaniel Frost

      this kind of sale is so rare, and I think a lot of the hate has also been fueled most recently by the controversies raised by the announcement of the coming console.

      • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

        Look this way if they put on great sales often they get stale quick and people will demand more, PSN+ will hit that wall at some point

      • mightywombat

        The sales are more or less quarterly as of recent. There was a Christmas sale, then spring, and then now. And they are getting better every time. But yeah, the hate is generated by the off-topic next gen talk, no matter what the article is about.
