Arcade, Deal, Game Add-on, Marketplace, Xbox 360 Games On Demand By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Nintendo Tim

    Wait…am I seeing this right? We’re getting a season pass for TWD, and for just $15?


    • Kino

      on Steam, it’s $25…so that price could be wrong

      • mcmax3000

        It was $14.99 for Wolf Among Us, so I imagine the price is correct.

        • Kino

          ohh okay, and i saw your other comment, so $20 in total. Kinda odd that Steam players pay $25 for all episodes in the season pass

          • mcmax3000

            Yeah, I thought that too for Wolf Among Us. I wonder if that’s to offset the inevitable significant sales on Steam. Wolf Among Us has already gone on sale, and episode two for that isn’t even out yet.

    • Wojtek Bogdziun

      plus Episode 1. In total $20

    • mcmax3000

      Yeah, we got one for Wolf Among Us at that price too. You have to buy episode one separately for $4.99, then the season pass for the remaining four episodes is $14.99, effectively giving you all five episodes for $20.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude


  • ungeheier

    Major, should we expect ANY type of sale for the Xbox One during this Christmas / Winter season?

  • Kirill Basin

    Anything for Xbox One? Still unclear if The Walking Dead: Season 2 will be available for X1 as well.

    • turkey86

      I don’t think it will be. It’s not on Wikipedia’s platform listing.

    • mcmax3000

      I believe Walking Dead is only on the same platforms as season one.

    • Anonymous

      Nope they’re only in 720p

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        that never gets old.

        • AC130

          If you do not read the billion zillion comments on the net saying the same thing.

          • striga

            Or if you can’t catch sarcasm.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            i don’t read any blogs but here and ign.

    • Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

      ATM no BUT that doesn’t mean in the future they wont port it over to the X1 just like the new Tomb Raider games is being ported and comes out in January.

  • Alex

    Ah i remember the 360 like it was yesterday.

  • klint05

    Some of the deals currently on the Aussie site:

    * Call of Juarez Gunslinger – $3.73
    * Ghost Recon: Future Soldier – $4.97

    • E.Nich

      Also, both Scott Pilgrim DLC’s are on sale.

    • xPutNameHerex

      It’s that Ubisoft sale mentioned at the bottom of the post. A good chunk of stuff has had 75% slashed off the normal price. Not bad looking at the pickings.

    • AC130

      Can I have some opinions about Beyond Good & Evil HD, From Dust and Future Soldier?

      • TheRequiem95

        BG&E HD is easily worth your money. No brainer. Buy with confidence!

        • AC130


      • EldritchWarlord

        From Dust is well worth that price. It’s a very unique puzzle game.

  • Brenny Bren

    I hope to get Xbox One sales for this countdown to 2014 event because its tough going digital when retailers will have way cheaper prices than Microsoft store. Also I’m, jealous that Sony has a deal with Amazon for digital games because they will have games cheaper than Microsoft store. I think now is the perfect time to have sales to make us feel confident about going digital

  • E.Nich

    Thanks for sharing Major. Looking forward to see what the countdown sale has to offer. I hope the list will leak soon enough… like every year ;)

  • Some guy

    Ubisoft Publisher Sale again.(And no info on what’s actually on sale, again)
    At least this time the DOTW is about different games. Would buy Apache Air assault, but 50$ for a game of 2011 is way too much and the 50% still put it at the same price as in store.

    • AC130

      Really good sale and none of the usual culprits either.
      How about scrolling down an inch and seeing for yourself what is their. lol

      • Some guy

        Can’t see anything related to Countdown to 2014 sales.

        • AC130

          You never said anything about the 2014 sales and that would be a week away before anyone knows anything. A shame really that we do not get the exact sale details a week before they are due.

  • Evil Bunny Games

    Nothing for Xbox One?

  • m1nh0ca

    I can’t understand people claiming sales for Xbox One…
    C’mon, guys, the system is not even a month old! And there aren’t even enough games to be put on sale or be given for free on Games with Gold!

    They need to sell consoles. And where is the revenue from the consoles? Games.
    So, if you are an early adopter (have I ever told how I love early adopters?), act like one and keep buying everything before everybody just to show how you are “up to date”. I know some people that barely played 30 games on X360, but already got a XOne.


      This is a upcoming content scheduled not just sales. People would like to know the upcoming games and prices for the xbox one.

      • mcmax3000

        Are there any games aside from Spartan Assault? That’s the only thing I know of coming out for Xbox One the remainder of the year.

        I’m sure there will be posts like this for Xbox One as well, once there is a significant enough amount of information to post. Until then, I’d expect one off posts like the Peggle 2, and Spartan Assault ones.

        • Jason Lafitte

          this is exactly why I wait for 6-12 months before buying a new system.

        • WARLORD

          Besides dlc and sales you only see two games for the xbox 360. With your logic thy should not be on there.

  • AC130

    I want to wait for countdown to 2014 as that has no doubt the best sales on season passes and such things however ubisoft publisher shows the first sign of decent sales returning to Aussies shores.

  • Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

    Wondering what the countdown sale will be, now I know wanting a sale on Xbox is silly but perhaps maybe a sale or reduced priced on xbox video ??

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    future soldier is a underrated game i recommend it.

    • Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

      IMO it overrated, with over priced DLC maps wasn’t it 1200msp for 3 maps ? anyway reason I think it overrated is because they took everything that made ghost recon good and got rid of it to compete with CoD and gears (the large co op terrorist mode was really fun on the old ones)

      • baconcheeswhiz89

        nothing beats GR2 and summit strike on the original xbox, but future soldier is the best one of the series for the 360.

        • AC130

          Nothing beats GRAW2 best tactical shooter and with the few mature people left in the gaming world as well to boot.

          • baconcheeswhiz89

            that game was poop imo

    • HGamer

      I like it too. It’s a good stealth tactical shooter. Fun when play with 3 friends through the campaign.

  • Jason Lafitte

    Pretty sad that when I come to your blog to read the sales, I instantly go to another website which has all the prices listed, including links to the store. Got to step it up a notch Major.

      • striga

        Thank you!

  • Chris Hofer

    xbldb {dot} com has info on what Ubisoft content is on sale. You can usually know what sales are going to be for the coming week on Monday evenings…at least that’s what I’ve seen.

  • Jason Lafitte

    do not under and circumstances buy rayman raving rabbids, it has broken achievements, its arguably the worst game on xbox, and should be pulled from the store.

    • AC130

      Thanks for the warning.

  • Offworlder1

    MAJOR NELSON: I know this has probably been asked before but there NEEDS to be a sale on ALL ME 3 DLC so it is 50% off, there was once a great sale on most ME 2 DLC many years ago but never one like it for ME 3. At the very least ME 3 “From Ashes” and “Citadel” need to be 50% off either during the “Countdown to 2014″ or a DOTW soon after. There also NEEDS to be a sale for “Left 4 Dead 2’s Cold Stream” making it 50% off as there was only a one day sale on black friday in 2012 which many missed out on including me and it was not advertised anywhere that I know of.

    • KesMonkey

      Please share your bizarre definition of the word “need”.

    • AC130

      ME2, NFS Shift and those other EA games that never see a sale would be more worthy of a sale then ME3 usually on sale.

  • striga

    Beyond Good and Evil and the new Walking Dead for me this time around.

  • Paul Clark

    I know it is up to the publishers to add demos, but isn’t the games for gold going to the one? Also, where are our discounts? when will the one store look similar to the 360? one things is different, I don’t see as many ads on the one…

    • Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

      I started playing Xbox in 2007 an the marketplace was difficult back then, it get better over the years when more content is brought to X1

  • Jared

    Countdown to 2014 Games well off 75% or 50% or less and this well be not XB1 Sales This is xbox 360 sales only. + Steam sales soon at the same time as xbox sale.

  • Legion

    2013 Countdown sale was good to me last year, hoping for some great savings for the 2014 Countdown!

    Has Microsoft ever considered doing radical 1-day sales on a frequent basis? Something to motivate customers like myself to check in daily as opposed to weekly/bi-weekly? I feel like I would love going to Xbox’s website or going on my console each day and thinking “gosh, I wonder what crazy savings Microsoft is going to throw out today only!”

    You would have so much more of my money if this were the case :)

  • ElektroDragon

    Let me guess, we’ll never get a bigger than 320GB drive for the 360 to fit all this content.

    • Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

      not now bud, but I just went through my hard drive and deleted content I no longer play there quite a lot space you can recover by doing it, though it is annoying when out of the blue you wanna play it again so you have to re download it, even if I had a 2TB id still do the same

    • evilfangs .

      Don’t worry, the Xbox one hard drive isn’t much bigger then 320 lol.

      • Michael Burden

        That’s another problem in itself – what was Microsoft thinking introducing the One with only a 500GB drive, especially when requiring all games to be fully installed on the drive.

        • Death Dealer

          I agree and I’m not replacing it until I know for sure that those people that do won’t be banned from the service in the future. I’ll be replacing it with a 2TB one when I can.

          • EldritchWarlord

            MS will be adding support for external hard drives and the internal hard drive is described as “non-replaceable”.

          • Death Dealer

            Yes, but quite a few people have already done it (including two friends of mine) and I’m planning to do it once the warranty runs out even with external device support as mine is already full.
            But I won’t do it if this risks a ban from the service. MS should release a proper statement about this.

          • AC130

            Can you not attach external drives of any size? Sure it sounds messy but at least you can have as much space as you want.

          • Death Dealer

            Yes you can, but that doesn’t change the fact that the bare storage space for the Xbox One is quite small when all the games are growing and growing. Mine is just full with 7 games. My 360 was full with 200+ arcade games.

          • AC130

            Microsoft can never get it right. At least you are not limited by size like 360 is.

        • IvanCD(MaidenLOKO)

          agreed…if MS provides no limited external storage support then I don´t see it as a huge problem…I´m really hopping they update the system to allow this asap…

          Something that I don´t really understanding is why MS didn´t provide a proper hd manager like in the 360. I no tech genius but I think it´s a basic feature, I mean to have access and to manage your stuff in the HD…

      • ElektroDragon

        Which is one of the reasons my Xbox One will be an exclusives only machine while my PS4 takes up the multi-platform game duties. I know they say I’ll be able to attach external storage to X1 “eventually”, but who wants more clutter, and how do I know it won’t be limited in size? Better to upgrade my internal PS4 hard drive as needed to a faster SSHD drive. Of course, the other reason is the weak GPU in the X1. But I’m still enjoying my X1 exclusives, just finished Peggle 2!

      • Ilovegoogleglass


    • Michael Burden

      If they really want to support the 360 for at least 2 more years and continue to push digital games, they really need to make a bigger hard drive option available for the 360. My 320GB has been full for quite a while and I hate buying USB drives for the GoD titles – I have 4 32GB ones already full and another one to be delivered today so I can finish downloading the titles I bought during the Black Friday sales.

  • Nexures

    oh my god im laughing so hard right now xD EA is milking the franchise so fricking hard even i can feel it ^^ honestly, infinity ward is like an angel compared to EA

    • Calmosity

      You mean Activison not Inifnity Ward?

      • Nexures

        no. activision is just as horrible. both EA and activision will do anything to earn more money. ANYTHING. I myself really like infinity ward, the guys that made mw series

        • AC130

          Infinity Ward are as bad as those 2 unless you could not see MW3 and Ghosts as the generic games they are. Also their complete lack of support for their community makes them just as bad.

  • cody

    countdown to disappointment.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      probably but oh well. we have come to not expect much.

  • roozbeh, again

    Fantastic sale. Good job Microsoft.

    • Unregisterred007

      rofl .. good job microsoft ?

  • Death Dealer

    Good sales but for the people wanting to buy the AC3 DLC on discount be aware that if you want all the content from the season pass, it isn’t much cheaper than just buying the season pass (with the single player DLC available on discount now).

    • Ilovegoogleglass

      Thanks for that GoW 2 info. Where did you find it?

    Walking Dead for Xbox One?

    • Jared

      Nope mybe next Year.

  • billy middleton

    i have not been able to download the new DLC all day on xbox live, i goto the season pass and i see it there, i press the A button to download it and……..nothing.

    all i can select is “cancel” nothing else shows up except a description of the DLC on the right hand of the window.

    on the left side it is nothing but a white/grey area with ONLY word “cancel” and nothing else.

    no “download now” no “payment options” nothing….zip…..nadda….xero.

    i know some people have been having this issue most of the day as it is the 10th here in the uk ((the uk is not 1 day ahead of the usa as it says in the release date))

    i have been trying since 10am ((uk time)) and it is now 8.54PM ((uk time)) so thats ten hours of trying to download the new DLC.

    i have deleted ALL the DLC i purchased REDOWNLODED it all, i cleared the system cache, i downloaded the voyer packs, i tried it on my OTHER xbox 360 and NOTHING worked.

    i DO have the season pass and it DOES show up on the season pass list but it will just not download.

    also i was only 1 of 3 people in 4 towns who bought the big box version of SR4 with the dubstep gun, jonny gat statue and the big red button :D

    i’m not the only one being affected by this so please try to explane to me in NON PR (public relations) scripted speech in what is going on.

    FYI:- its not a serverside issue if some people can download it

  • NadoHawk6

    I ran out of space on my Xbox 360 Slim HDD yet again and had to delete more games to make room…..since you stopped releasing larger HDDs can you please stop with the BS of limiting the USB storage to 32GBs? You’ll make more money buy selling us software than by limiting us and making us decide which games to purchase due to size limitations.

  • ickles

    Will this Walking Dead FINALLY let us invert the y-axis? MS should REQUIRE devs to put basic features like that in games. I got ripped off with a game I can’t play and won’t fall for it again.

  • Lem0nadeee

    Will diablo 3 go on sale?

    • abeeest


  • Golaga123

    Great Ubisoft sale!

  • Christine Ck Katherine O’hara

    ok y’all big question if the rest of season one of the walking dead by taletale games is 66% and they’re originally bout $5 how much would they be with the discount?

    • Yaow

      1.66 each.

      Great deal for a great series. MS is trying to build interest for the new season that is coming out soon.

  • AdaptorLive

    The Ubisoft sale is nice! Just picked up Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and From Dust. Both are games I’ve been wanting to play for a while now.

  • Christine Ck Katherine O’hara

    i hope so @yaow i hope so if they are $1.66

  • Christine Ck Katherine O’hara

    THAT is CRAZY so ep 2-5 would be a grand total of about $6.64 that is a hell of a bargin IF this isn’t a gold excusive if it is meh
