    Hey Major, do you know what happened to the Beautiful Puzzle Pack Bundle that was also released earlier this week? When I go to the marketplace link, there’s the images and overview for it, but the download link is no longer available.

    • khan800

      Yeah I’m looking for that as well!

    • xPutNameHerex

      Or you know, just de-list this bundle pack as well so no one can buy it.

      What gives? I can understand if you are testing the bundles, given the unannounced and relatively unadvertised nature of them, but did your Sales department really go through the effort of packing these games to then not even sell them to us for even a week?

  • Flawless

    ehhhh if this was $10 maybe.

    Unbound Saga is garbage and has been on sale for $2 before and Bloodforge/Dungeon Fighter/Islands of Wakfu are average to bad games.

    only good game is Dishwasher.

  • sergio meza

    Have they announced who won the mountain dew dorito challenge?

  • roozbeh

    So that rumor about arcade bundles turn out to be true.

  • shinji

    What if you already own one or more of the games?

    • Robin Visser

      “If you already own one of these games there is no additional discount on this bundle, nor do you receive an additional copy of the game you already own. There are no refunds for this item.”
      It’s right there in the description. ;)

      • shinji

        Yea. I missed that somehow. Derp.

    • franubisfur

      Baka Shinji…

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      tough poopies?

  • computer technician

    Wired magazine took apart an Xbox one. The hardware comparison between it and the PS4 was published months ago on anandtech. The bottom line is, Xbox one has 33% less raw graphical processing power than PS4, yet costs $100 more. That is why M$ never released any detailed info about the GPU in Xbox one. They are trying to hide this fact, and trying to censor anyone telling anyone else. Look up Xbox on anandtech and see the hardware comparison for yourself.

    • computer technician

      I should also mention that they reduced the number of shader cores on the GPU to make room for ESRAM on the SOC (system on chip). They did this to make up for the slower ddr3 system memory they used. This setup with two different memory types makes it harder for devs to code games for it, and further diminishes the xbox ones performance. M$ keeps deleting these comments and trying to sensor anyone telling others about it. This is why they have not announced the GPU specs, unlike Sony who are proud to give theirs. M$ is trying to grub money from the unsuspecting masses by cheaping out on the hardware, while trying to sell xbone at a higher price. Ripoff.

  • Robin Visser

    Major Nelson, a ban is required, otherwise that troll will not stop.

    • GmailIsDown

      i wonder if he gets paid by sony. if not, he is a very sad man.

      • Jason Voorhees

        He’s definitely a very sad person. I wouldn’t even call him a man as he has personality traits of a six year old.

        • roozbeh

          six year old? i’d go lower.

  • Nate Welles

    Good bundle, I’m liking these xbla bundles.

  • Chop Sticks

    Hey did anyone else hear that wired actually got their hands on an Xbox one? They took it apart… And what they found… Was… Slow! Anandtech published an article about it. It’s about 33% slower than the PS4… I don’t know what Microsoft is trying to pull, but we better get some one from Microsoft to explain to us why they put half as many shader cores on the Xbox than ps4 got……….

    • roozbeh

      How about posting these in n4g. Your audience is there.

  • roozbeh

    @franubisfur:disqus

    told you. playstation has by far a more immature fanbase.

    now you believe me.
    proof : arron/comp tech/computer technician/chop stick.(all the same guy)

    • GmailIsDown

      which makes sense as PS3 is filled with games with immature anime girls. seriously, if you are past high school and still your favorite games are games like Hyperdimension Neptunia, you need to move on.

      • Adam

        I must have missed all the anime stuff in GT, Uncharted, God of War & Infamous etc…
        Xbox 360 has little Japanese content because barely anyone in Japan owns one.
        PS do you like comic book games? Same thing. Also, I bet you are a big fan of Saints Row…

        • todd Wright

          Uncharted really is boring why not point out killzone

  • Vince

    Let us pick and choose any 5 games on XBLA. Now that would be the best selling arcade bundle ever.

    • usrev

      that’s how it should be. that be amazing. I’d buy it a few times. I’ve had 360 since release but only have 25 arcade games (including the ones on my arcade disk) the reason is most arcade games are over priced, and since they don’t drop in price like retail (a $10 arcade game will most likely be $10 for years with maybe a 50% off sale, while a retail game will drop 50% easily in the first few months)

      for $20 i’d pick up castle crashers, and who knows the lucky other 4 games. money in devs pockets.

      the only arcade games I have bought and felt like I got a great deal was state of decay and peggle.

      • ryder4life22187

        I got over 100 XBLA games in only 3years. Over a year ago they werent checking Bing rewards program so harshlly and i was able to have 6 accounts that 3 of them all gave me 30 points a day so it only took me less than a week for 100 points. I only would up paying real cash for about 12 of them now.

    • Adam

      Or at least let us gift games we already own to friends – like Steam.

      • xPutNameHerex

        This was in the original Xbox One policies, so there is a chance it may come back with digital copies at a future date (what the latest internet rumors seem to indicate).

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      and please their customers? yeah right. they got a reputation to keep.

  • usrev

    I like this bundles, still haven’t seen one I wanted yet, but they are decent deals.

  • DarkNightRJ

    I only own 1/5 but there’s kind of good reason for that. lol, good deal but none of the games interest me all that much.

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    bring back rampage and double dragon

  • Beano

    Awesome, you packaged up some of the worst-reviewed games on XBLA. $20 is a ton of money for a steaming pile of doo. I wouldn’t play 4/5 of these games if they were free.

    • roozbeh

      and you had to say it here right. cause the almighty messiah of gaming right?
      everyone listens to you right?

      • O Mosqueda

        I’ve got to agree with Beano this time, only the Dishwasher and perhaps Dungeon Fighter are worth. The price tag is too much for its contents.

        • roozbeh

          Im not saying its good but someone might like it and think its worthh it. (Personally I dont like this)

          • Ryan

            and you just had to say it here haint

          • roozbeh

            yes i had to

  • O Mosqueda

    This bundles could be better, the Twisted Pixel was simply perfect, at least at the launch price, but this, the Kinect one and the puzzles one are only worthy for a game or two and you are throwing bad or low rated games to fill in the blanks. If a game doesn’t sell, just delist it, don’t sell it along with good games in bundles, the good ones on these 3 new bundles are worth the price by each.
    If this goes one I can imagine what will be the next one: “Fighting in the streets” with Double Dragon Neon, DD2 and The Warriors at the 800 MSP.

    • Jason Voorhees

      I agree with you, but I guess this bundle is to bring less known games (that sold poorly) to the attention of people that want at least a couple of those games, IDK.

  • O Mosqueda

    You wanted to release a worthy action packed bundle? Why not both Dishwashers, both Shanks and DD Neon? That would be a real 1600 MSP bargain, not this choice.
