    Snagged lego batman 2… love all the lego games. Only reason I’m not holding onto my points now is that they expire 1 year after the One is released. Might as well pick up some decent stuff in this sale I guess. If only Lego Lord was $10.

  • Kguy

    Major. This is from Singapore. Is there a pricing error. Rockstar Table Tennis is priced joint highest as Lego Lord of the Rings under the Xbox Singapore site. Surely that count as a pricing error since it is the lowest item for Day 2 here.

  • Aaron Griffin

    Not really into the family games of today’s sale, so bought Crysis instead. Never played any of them so I figure I might as well start at the beginning!

    • Brian Whittington

      Good game but i still would of waited tho. Crysis 3 is going to be on sale.

      • PopeTackler

        Crysis 1 is still the best game in the series.

        • Brian Whittington

          Yes but no MP on the xbox

          • PopeTackler

            From what I hear the MP in Crysis 3 is all but dead anyway. It was pretty bad when I played it a few months ago so I can see why it didn’t last.

          • AC130

            It was as buggy and problematic as Crysis 2 and Crytek didn’t seem to want to fix either making Crysis 1 the most playable.

    • Cap N. Junkie

      Bulletstorm is waaaaaaay too much fun!

      • Aaron Griffin

        Very true, I bought it yesterday first thing!

  • Pickleofwar

    Non of these I want but good prices, hopefully tomorrow metal gear rising goes on sale

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    ugh. that game wasn’t as good as the first one. i don’t think i could go through it again.

  • Getsuga_Tensho

    Monopoly Streets can be pretty good fun with friends and the Lego games are always fun.

  • Innis Crossley

    I keep getting this error message when trying to buy a game:

    “Can’t authorize the selected payment option. Please select a different payment option or add a new one.”

    • Brian Whittington

      You have enough money on the payment option you are using?

      • Innis Crossley

        Yeah, and I bought Borderlands 2 in the sale yesterday. I think its related to the fact that my regions don’t match, British account but I live in Spain.

        • Brian Whittington

          Try buying MS points and use them.

  • マリオ

    So ready for Day 3 already.

  • Jorge Garza

    I got it for 160 Microsoft Points.

  • Brian Whittington

    Man with this sale and the free games im not going to have room left on my HDD.
    ACII free on the 16th

    • Scott

      The best AC, by the way…..

      • Brian Whittington

        Don’t have to tell me:)

        • misterSLR

          Brotherhood is best :)

          • Scott

            Blasphemy! ;)

          • Andrew

            Completely Agree. And with the GTA5 install, my hard drive is going to be stuffed.

  • Scott

    I have to say, I’m eating my words after yesterdays sale and todays. Really good prices, the kind of drops that make me want to buy them even though I KNOW I don’t have enough time to play them right now.
    I want LEGO Batman, but I know I won’t be able to resist Horizon, Tomb Raider and Bioshock so I’m holding out, especially after getting AC3 yesterday.

    The point is (and hopefully MS/Devs will see increased revenue to prove it) that these are games I would NOT have even considered getting as I was on the fence with them. They suddenly become must haves, I mean christ even my wife said last night about AC3 “that’s too good a deal not to just buy”.

    Maybe there is hope for the Xbone……I hope so, as I can still easily change my pre-order.

    • Brian Whittington

      and even if you dont change you can still keep your xbox and play some good games.

      • Scott

        Sadly with children/business to run/car to run/house to pay for/wife to adhere to, I have to sell my 360 to fund the next console, but it’s still 5 – 6 months away, plenty of time to enjoy this bunch of deals :)

        • Brian Whittington

          Ya same here but i have games for my kids on the 360 so its going to them, and with 5-6 months it only comes to about $20-$25 a week to save.

  • Ryan Davis

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to spread out the family titles throughout the week? It seems like people would be more likely to pick up one or two a day throughout the week than a whole bunch of them in one day.

    • WARLORD VIII

      The day to day sales are only till the 5th, but yes it would of been nice to see it spread out.

  • barinho

    If Gears,Forza and Crysis 3 have prices as good as these I will buy them all!

  • Bobacreek

    Yesterday had a better list…..just saying

    • AC130

      Opinion really it all depends on what games you already have on the list.

      • Bobacreek

        Yeah that’s true. Thanks for reminding me about that.

  • Real Varu

    I bought Bulletstorm, Perfect Dark Zero, Prey and Crysis for 135 Mexican Pesos in my country, like $10 USD :)

  • Minecraft Greek

    Just like Steam in a way, they do sales, even though I don’t know when I’ll get to play them, I end up buying games because I feel like I have to at that price.

  • Reinier Martinez

    “Your payment instrument could not be authorized. Please contact your provider, or try a different payment option.” Same card and PayPal account I always use to buy games, points, movies and pay for Xbox Live and Xbox Music… #FML :/

    • Mark Stone

      This is the classic account has been locked problem (choose the reason why from a list of stupid reasons). It will require you to actually call MS and talk to the billing dept (cant fix it via chat), and if you’re lucky 3 days from now you’ll be able to make a purchase. Pity these are 1 day sales items !!

  • Alejandro Gomez

    hopefully Tombraider is $10

    • Nathan

      Even if it’s not, it’s worth at least $20.

      • Alejandro Gomez

        I want it to be $10 so I could buy Crysis and bulletstorm

  • barinho

    The Portuguese marketplace still shows yesterday’s prices aind it’s impossible to buy anything.I have 800 points but it says that I don’t have any.

  • Mark Stone

    Well another batch of games I will not buy now that I know my purchases are not compatible with the next gen xbox. DRM was problem #1, but no backwards compat is a close 2nd. MS has been losing me a little bit every day, I will be letting my xbox live expire as well due to the Family plan no longer being available. 10 yr xbox live member says bye, bye

    • MrT26

      Your 360 won’t spontaneously combust once you buy an XBO you know (well, probably)…

      • Mark Stone

        Not really interested in having a stack of h/w crammed into a small space, or having to worry about home many hdmi ports my stereo can support, or if my xbox will actually work for another 2 years. I get why disc games may be problematic, but digital d/l should be a piece of cake to support.

        • Gettinthecagev2

          You sir know nothing about how backwards compatability works. In order to makeXBOX360 games operate on XboxOne they would have to include the extra disc drive to read the obsolete tech and a seller ate motherboard to run the obsolete tech. Go try and run a windows XP game on windows 8. Not compatible without major tweaks. It’s not a simple yes no, otherwise they would say yes. Remember when ps3 tried to be backward compatible and it cost $600-$700??? That’s cuz all the extra hardware. You are dense.

          • Mark Stone

            idiot, I specifically said downloadable. And as a programmer of 30 years I do know a little about software and emulation. And p.s just to reiterate what a moron you are, almost all XP games run on Win8, that’s why compatibility mode exists. You sir are a Troll, and a stupid one at that.

        • KrisXX

          Man, so glad I don’t have those simple problems. I can keep my 360 when I get a XBone. I have plenty of space and 2 free HDMI ports for XB1 and PS4. So glad I’m not letting that stuff ruin my enjoyment of gaming and keeping a console!!

          • Mark Stone

            PC gaming set the bar for playing the games you paid for long into the future on various h/w, Windows iterations. I guarantee, just like DRM, the decision to not add backwards compatibility support was primarily to improve MS’s cash flow. After all if you have no games to play on the XBone, you will need to run out and buy lots of new games. The box has more than enough power to support emulation, and I suspect the actual development kits are all still running on PC hardware, just like the last 2 iterations, which would make backwards compatibility a matter of recompilation using the new compilers. If someone can tell me the new dev kits are using entirely new languages maybe I’ll change my reasoning, but I prefer to believe this is just a cash grab at the cost of the consumers. MS has lost sight of it’s consumer roots, where as Sony seems to be embracing us. And on last comment to support my argument, have you noticed how easily xbox games are ported to the pc, and how almost all XBOX exclusives find their pc cousins. PlayStation exclusives rarely show up anywhere else, so maybe the new game plan is buy a PS4 for console gaming and wait for the xbox games to show up on steam.

    • Xenokai

      Back Compat is not important enough, it would just make the systems cost alot more. Back when ps2 did it for ps1 i was pretty nifty since it would make games look better. With 360 and xbox orginal games the games werent fully compatible due to emulation but the usefull thing there was that the 360 could upscale those games to HD. With the 360 and Xbox One theres really no need to bother adding back compat since both consoles are already HD. Instead of back compat id rather have updated version of 360 games re-released for xbox one. A true 1080p gears of war 3 would be amazing. Also for people saying gears 3 is already 1080p on 360, no it isnt. nearly all (like 97%) of 360 games are naitive 720p the 1080p option is only upscaling it.

  • Mariusz Gromada

    What’s the most amusing, Rockstar Table Tennis’s sale price in Poland is 18$. What’s wrong with you Microsoft? The rest of the prices for today’s titles are a couple of bucks higher. Each one of them.

  • Vystrel

    Well, I guess we will have to wait for the One to release don’t we.
    Do you think the Kinect is being forced to be bought and plugged in just for Kinect games?

  • disqus_eUPQtFSCTG

    Mshizz sucks!!! Todds mom is fat!!!!

  • Real Varu

    In Mexican Marketplace they’re still Max Payne 3 and Borderlands 2 at 99 MXN (7.50 USD) but it keeps me showing an error when I try to buy one of these games

    • Jorge Garza

      You can buy them through the website.

  • WARLORD VIII

    I got 1600 ms points left but now im torn. Do i wait to see if the games i wont come down to a good price,or just get State of Decay it looks killer.

    • Scott

      Don’t pay 1200 pts for it, you’ll be able to get it for less at some point. I’m fairly sure that games like Bioshock/Tomb Raider/Forza Horizon are going to drop to €/$14.99 if not more – that’s a much better deal than SODecay!

    • Socal71

      Yeah hold off on State of Decay. Even though I bought it and think it is a great game, there isn’t really much to do once you beat the game except rehash rescue missions and zombie hunts…

  • WARLORD VIII

    Xbox live is down.

    • disqus_eUPQtFSCTG

      no its not im on it right now

      • WARLORD VIII

        try going to the home page or your account .l can get in to games on demand just fine

  • Ken

    The xbox website is totally trashed right now

  • Ken

    Uh oh… that shouldn’t have happened.
    It appears you’ve found a glitch in the system.date:7/3/2013 5:44:42 PMcode:s:id:req:

    There is a new one!!!! lol

    • WARLORD VIII

      lol you can get in to games on demand from one of the links on here but that’s it.

  • Scott

    I was considering getting Bulletstorm on a whim there but it’s gone up to €19.99 for some reason, when it was €4.99 yesterday; think it needs a fix?

    • Nathan

      Same here. I was going to pick it up today, but it’s back up to $19.99. If it gets fixed back to $4.99 I’ll pick it up. If not, oh well.

      • WARLORD VIII

        ya it needs a fix Billetstorm stay’s on sale all week.

  • ikari_paul

    Table tennis is a fun game. Anyone who still has yet to play it, go ahead. not much anyway

  • dante

    U have Brothers in Arms: HH at $29.99 y

  • DarthBurrito

    Would be nice if MS announced a 500GB drive for the 360. Running out of space on my 320GB drive.

    • Socal71

      Or at the very least another way we can offload games, i.e.. external storage so we can download more titles. I too am running out of room and will not be able to buy too many more digital titles.

    • Boss

      I think they’re doing an update for cloud gaming before the Xbox One comes out

  • William

    So if the sale is supposed to be until July 8th, why are the games changing back to their original prices? Earlier today the sale prices were correct, but as I check now Borderlands 2, Brothers in Arms, AC3 and Far Cry are all back to their old prices.

    • WARLORD VIII

      read the blog man.”Day 2 of the Xbox Live “Ultimate Game Sale” is here and below are the titles that are on sale for the next 24-hours only” but you are right about BIA and Bulletstorm.

  • José Zanolini

    To bad, In my Brazilian Live Bulletstorm is $14.99. Yesterday was $4.99. I think I’ll wait until tomorrow to see if the price back down.

    • Allan

      Live Brazil is the worst company I ever saw working, they just announced all the games with a promotion till 07/03 now I’m here, trying to buy and I cant because it was na one day only promotion and not two day as announced, try to contact the support to ask about it, You can because there’s no support in Brazil

      • José Zanolini

        UUUHUU! Back to R$ 9,50 ($4.99)!

  • Xenokai

    I hate buying digital but if the deal is good i jump on it. Divinity 2 is a great deal and it comes with the exspansion. Cheapest i found it was $15 about 2 months ago at a flea market, i was about to buy it then but didnt. $5 is just the right price for a digital version of a 3+ year old game.

  • Mark Stone

    I have acknowledged that either an emulator or a recompile would be needed, I’m not advocating a powerpc chip just for backwards compatibility. I think it can be done via software.

  • Pete Osborne

    Left 4 Dead 2 800
    Orange Box 400
    Witcher 2 800
    Crysis 3 1600

    There may be more for day 3 so I’ll add if I find them :D these are the US prices BTW

    • WARLORD VIII

      And were did you find the next game sale price and list??

      • Pete Osborne

        XBLDB dot com, it’s pretty useful for finding sales that don’t get disclosed on this blog or the dashboard

        • WARLORD VIII

          Ya I looked and got witcher 2 the sales are up right know. Thx for the heads up man

  • Brad

    $9.99 is the sale price for The Witcher 2, right? It won’t be cheaper tomorrow.

    • WARLORD VIII

      Sale price is not up yet. So it could be cheaper but probably not

    • Pete Osborne

      Yeah, it is. Good price for a great game!

    • WARLORD VIII

      Me to Lol so far I got ac3 bl2 fc3 and know witcher2 I have 800 map left for tomb raider. I hop it goes to 9.99 .

      • dibils

        sorry but there is no way its gonna be 9.99. but do yourself a favor and buy it anyway

        • RampageDeluxe

          Its that price right now.

          • dibils

            tomb raider??

          • RampageDeluxe

            The Witcher. Ah. Nevermind. I see now. I thought you replied to Brad. I bet Tomb Raider will be 15. Sorry about that.

          • WARLORD VIII

            Well I’m going by the sales I have seen so far. All the game at 29.99 went down to 9.99

          • RampageDeluxe

            You wont here me complain. I rented it and beat it, but for $10, I’ll buy it. I hope you’re right.

          • WARLORD VIII

            Yep its 29.99 now witcher 2 was 39.99 so I’m linking 9.99 is right

  • Mail Ssinnigcm

    Hoping we get a sports day one day this week with a discount on NHL 13 :)

    • Brad

      There may be a sports sale day, but NHL ’13 won’t be on the list. It would most likely contain Forza Horizon and Kinect Sports 2.

      • Mail Ssinnigcm

        Not sure if yr joking, but if not, why wouldn’t NHL13 be on the list?

        • WARLORD VIII

          I don’t think there will be sports day. MajorN already posted the game list for this weeks sale. No sports game.

          • Mail Ssinnigcm

            Hey yeah, so he did. Balls. :(

          • AC130

            Probably a massive discount on unannounced games as surprise one can hope.

          • RampageDeluxe

            I hope that wasn’t a definitive list, because most of those have already gone on sale. That would leave 1 a day for the rest of the week.

          • Gergroy10

            Daily sales only go till the 5th

          • RampageDeluxe

            in my original excitement, I glossed over that detail. Thanks.

          • AC130

            Look around a little I thought I saw several unannounced discount including FIFA Street 3 NFS Most Wanted 2012 MLB 13 NBA 13 etc.

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    bacon

    • TryHarderMS

      Swine!

  • Mike

    you guys go right now crysis 3 is on sale on marketplace $20 just got it

    • AC130

      Hungary have it for 880MSP not sure if it is worth it as the online is dead so I have heard and the SP is short.

    • Colorfulchew

      I think Orange Box is also on. Unless it’s normally $5.

  • Brad

    Is the version of The Witcher 2 on the marketplace the “Enhanced Edition”? It says on Wikipedia that 10 GB of new content was added, but my download comes to 7.04 GB. I can’t understand how this can be since the “Enchanced Edition” was the only version released for the Xbox 360. Is the new content added by way of patch or do you download it from the in-game menus?

    • WARLORD VIII

      Yes

      • AC130

        SO yes it is?

        • WARLORD VIII

          Ya I downloaded it over an hour ago its the enhanced edition

          • AC130

            Awesome keep hearing about this game sounds awesome.

        • Dan Manzanares

          Yes, it is indeed the enhanced edition :)

    • WARLORD VIII

      you gotta remember that the game was two discs that second disc had to have menus and code to run on the Xbox that right there is probably the extra gigs.

  • Julian Rodriguez

    Does anyone know if Mass Effect 3 DLC will be available at discount at any point during this sale? I have every piece of DLC except Citadel and Omega which are at $20 apiece right now. A little too rich for my blood :(

    • AC130

      Omega is on sale

    • george rodriguez

      omega is 600 points in that kinect central zone under featured in game marketplace

  • WARLORD VIII

    Probably tomorrow its not realy sapos to be on sale till the 4th

    • Cristiano Ronaldo

      Dont know if you mean Witcher 2. But over here it already the 4th while in the US they already got it.. the other games already are reduced (C3,L4D)

      • WARLORD VIII

        Ya I was. Don’t no might be something with your region.

  • abeeest

    £8.99 in the UK

    • Cristiano Ronaldo

      Still 29.99 € over here… the only game I wanted is not on sale over here…

      • Pete Osborne

        It took about two hours after it was reduced in the US for it to be reduced here in the UK so it should just be a matter of time hopefully. The other games were all reduced immediately

  • Jared

    Witcher 2 is on for 800MSP IN Canada is 680msp

  • Jared

    360MSP FOR The $5 Games Deal and for Crysis 3 is 1360MSP Left for Dead 2 is 800MSP IN US IN Canada is 680MSP The Orange Box 400 in canda is 360MSP
