Deal, Xbox 360 By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Lem0nadeee

    What about Pinball FX2 Tables?!

  • That Guy

    Merry f****n Christmas Microsoft, you gave a gift of a singular item for a singular group. Good job! Now steam got the money you could have today. Its like they don’t have any business sense. Christmas day is the best day for digital sales, but I guess they didn’t get the memo.

    • Cody De Leon

      Yeah, I have to admit that Steams’ L4D2 deal really took me by surprise but, I was glad they did something like that.

    • dark

      exactly:)

    • Stephanie

      They got the money y’all just talk shīt about hating microsoft and you’re never gunna buy nothing but yet shell out money

      • That Guy

        They don’t get any of my money actually. I don’t buy anything new so Microsoft never sees a dime from me unless they have decent sales on Live. Only game I got new was BF4, which technically, I didn’t pay for.

        • Stephanie

          I got bf4 too lol

  • Nox

    merry christmas guys

  • Vince

    Major, you know what would be awesome? Bringing Dota 2 to Xbox One.

    • Nox

      negative

    • Lucas Sanches Cestari

      yes xD

  • dark

    see Xbox always has a catch they wouldn’t give a free game without pushing the dlc on to people for money, and Merry Christmas

  • dark

    and i really don’t understand why people like these games you hardly get to do anything

    • Flawless

      its the story.

    • Nox

      the story is really good
      i thought the same till i play it

      • Stephanie

        Well if I want to read a story ill go to the library

        • Nox

          sure, no one is stopping you

  • Some Guy

    Steam’s free game for Christmas? Left 4 Dead 2. MSRP $29.99
    Xbox’s free game for Christmas? The Wolf Among Us Part 1. MSRP $4.99

    • Flawless

      i got L4D2 2 weeks after it came out on sale for $40 at gamestop its not worth $30 now lol.

      • Nox

        lol that sucks

        • MoocaHero

          Left 4 Dead 2. Played to all high hell, ancient. The Wolf Among Us. New, exciting, story bound, more to come, wow!

      • Some Guy

        According to the Xbox games store it is worth $30. :-P

  • Nox

    MS slap my face again xD

    • jalen venable

      why do you say that?

      • Nox

        because we had tons of games for sale yesterday
        and today will be the same :D

  • Shoprony

    what is next? NBA? :S

  • The Truth Must Be Said

    Whot ? no sales for today ?

    • Master Chief

      Still no posts on xbldb…

      • The Truth Must Be Said

        Hope not arcade games

        • Master Chief

          GonD or DLC is what I am waiting for.

          • AC130

            Eww GonD they are usually so OP even on sale. Would be nice if they had more 99c deals. They were sweet.

          • Master Chief

            Yea usually GonD deals are OP but Im mainly waiting for that 5 dollar deal on Metro 2033 or a deal on Metro LL. Metro LL is 40 bux new everywhere. Crossing my fingers and Hoping Also Sleeping Dog dlc and Dishonored Dlc sales would be good…

          • AC130

            Would love Metro 2033 got the DLC uber-cheap some sale a while a go.

          • MoocaHero

            I want State of Decay on sale. :D Even if it’s only 33% off.

          • Master Chief

            Never played it but heard it’s really good.

  • Shoprony

    NBA2K14 & DLC
    another fail deal…

    • AC130

      No such deal. Fake

      • Shoprony

        just checked the dashboard in europe
        its what i said

        • AC130

          o.O I hope it is just some mess up on Europe’s end because this sounds horrible.

          • Shoprony

            indeed
            and the names and description of the DLC’s are in turkish or something

          • Master Chief

            UGGG why couldn’t ms give us a list of what we can expect for the sales ?

          • AC130

            Because….

            Microsoft

            Yeah they know not the word sales mean. Steam and PS+ understand the concept well enough though.

          • Master Chief

            2k14 is $40.19, so I guess Shoprony is right… :(

          • AC130

            :( RIP M$ I think you went too low this time. No doubt this game is already being planned for server shutdown.

          • MoocaHero

            What? NBA2K14 is active. It came out only so long ago. O_o It’s a Xbox One and PS4 title. How are the servers going to be shutdown anytime soon when NBA2K13 is still active.

          • AC130

            2K like to shut down servers en-masse. Also like to discontinue parts of their games. So normal live services would work but whether the whole package works in a few months remains to be seen.

          • MoocaHero

            Well yea, because they are games that come out every year. No point in pouring money into something that stops selling anyways. So them cutting the servers on say NBA2K12 when we’re in 2013 and the newest hottest thing is out, yea, it’s gonna happen. Gotta think like a business person when you buy certain games. :)

          • AC130

            Always the one guy that gets the $60 rehash each year. Business wise they stuff themselves over I would try these rehashes when they are uber cheap but because by then they have no servers I have no reason to touch them.

          • Shoprony

            told you guys :(
            guess i’ll just buy Mini Ninjas, Eternal Sonata and Brothers…

          • Nox

            wait for 2014?

          • Shoprony

            maybe you are right
            i cant add more cash this month, so i’ll either wait, or buy some cool cheap games now
            prices are terrible here: GTAV GonD was 20000 HUF (~$93), now its “only” 13000 HUF (~$60). NBA is ~$55 now

          • AC130

            Well that sucks I used to use the Hungary marketplace to get games because they were the best for prices. :( At least Bully is always cheap there.

          • Nox

            wow man that really sucks :/

        • MoocaHero

          40.19 on US servers for NBA2K14, just not on the dash. Hope there’s more to it than a game that is best played on the nextgen. :

          • Nox

            that will be the sale for tonight :/
            i just hope is not the only game for sale

    • Master Chief

      How do u know? Its not on xbldb…

      • Shoprony

        just wait for it
        NBA2K14 & DLC 33% off

    • The Truth Must Be Said

      Not a sport game again…
      They should have put it on sale with Fifa Street 3 and the others sport games deals
      Damn Microsoft

  • Bennijin

    I’ve just twigged, this is the same type of deal MS offered last Christmas Day. If I remember rightly The Walking Dead Episode 1 was free and the other episodes were all discounted.

    It went down quite well last year but then The Walking Dead was already a smash hit while The Wolf Among Us is as yet unproven other than the first episode, so the deal reception’s a bit frostier. I’m fine with it myself.

    Boxing Day tomorrow though, MS. Would like to see a nice sale. To those who don’t know, Boxing Day to us is a bit like what Black Friday is to you.

    • AC130

      It is already boxing day over here.

      • Bennijin

        Yeah same here, I was using “tomorrow” with reference to it still being Christmas Day in America and I haven’t gone to bed yet.

        • AC130

          Well let us hope it is not like Black Friday can do without all the stabbing and bashing each other over slightly discounted goods. :)

    • Nox

      is boxing day way better or worse?

  • Nox

    MS want us to buy old games that are already dead.
    dislike all you like but this the real truth

  • Nox

    specials for tomorrow
    cooking mama collection 89.99===> 69.99$ 45%
    NBA 2k14 69.99====>40.19$ 33%

    karaoke 14.99====> 0.00 free (only for gold members)
    source xbldb….

  • Some Guy

    Wow, tomorrow’s sale is $15 in-game jewelry packs for NBA2K14… I seriously can’t believe I’m going to say this but that’s even worse than today.

    • AC130

      Sounds like a sale that they had before but maybe I am confused because every NBA2k game has the same DLC, achievements etc.

  • André

    I would really like to see the sales figures at the end of this sale. what games sold more and stuf like that. This NBA deal is really a letdown. Also i can’t believe anyone would pay 16$ for some fake jewelry on a NBA game let alone the full price. Ill just wait for some more discounts on some XBLA titles

  • Nox

    for the first time ever
    April’s fools sales

    MS had to be the first
    another slap to my face from MS part -.-

    • dark

      what?

      • Nox

        xbldb {dot} com

  • Jorge T Gonzalez

    If sports games and dlc are the sale for tomorrow WE RIOT!!!!!!!

    • dark

      agreed

    • Some Guy

      They already are up on the marketplace at discounted rates so come on now, Microsoft held up their end let’s see you riot.

      P.S. I wouldn’t say “sports games” it’s one game and the vast majority of the sale is for $15 in-game jewelry packs. What kind of loser would buy those to begin with?

      • AC130

        I would love to see the sale figures for that content XD

        • Some Guy

          Well you know the young nigs gotta be “ballas” with their gold chains even in video games.

  • dark

    This is what i want just saying: oblivion, fallout 3/new vegas, state of decay , far cry 3, maybe dishonored dlc, mass effect 3 dlc ahh thats all i can think of that i want on sale

    • Nox

      dude if they don’t even drop the price for black ops 2 don’t expect the same for those games.

      • dark

        true

      • Some Guy

        Black Ops 2 is relatively new compared to Oblivion and Fallout.

        • Nox

          is 1 year old, they drop the price for mw3 last christmass and was 1 year old but they cant do it with black ops 2 this year?

          • Some Guy

            Since Ghosts was a failure I guess not troll

          • That Guy

            Ghosts is a piece of c**p. I didn’t really care for MW3 but gave them the benefit of the doubt because MW3 went through development hell for a bit. Ghost’s is easily the worst CoD ever so I don’t think I will be buying another CoD anytime soon. Also I hated BO2 multiplayer so definitely not buying this years.

          • Nox

            how im even a troll Oo

    • E.Nich

      It’s very possible that we’ll see a State of decay sale this countdown, waiting for it too. As for fallout 3, it was on sale like two weeks ago at a VERY good price. Seems you missed it.

      • dark

        ya i did

  • マリオ

    Christmas Eve was definitely the highlight of this sale.

  • Guest

    is the best sale gonna be on new years eve or new years or something? because i still haven’t seen anything to my preference. I’m holding my “BAG OF MONEY” but it seems like Microsoft isn’t smart enough help me help them.

  • Stephanie

    We should all leave smiley faces saying good job microsoft and see if they’re judgement changes tommorow

    • AC130

      Careful if you do that there might be an apocalypse of repeat sales. I am almost sure at this rate it will be Fallout 3 DLC, Bioshock 2 DLC, GTAIV DLC and some random arcade game.

  • Lord Elric

    Aaargh, missed the Castlevania day.

    Guess there’s no chance of any of these sales days being repeated, eh?

    • Does Not Equal

      To my knowledge, it’s never happened before.

      • Lord Elric

        Double aaargh. So much for using some of the credit I have. Why do they tease people with the sales you can’t take advantage of any more?

        • Does Not Equal

          Probably to show you what you missed so you’ll pay closer attention next time. It’s a sales tactic.

          • Lord Elric

            True. A HIGHLY irritating one , though. Not all of us can get on Xbox Live every single day.

          • Does Not Equal

            When in doubt, check the internet.

    • Some guy

      You mean the DLC or the games?
      SOTN and HD were on sales in september and in may.
      But since MS love their games, they’ll proably make an other week of castlevania some day along with GTA IV

      • Lord Elric

        Specifically, MOF. I’m hoping as LORDS OF SHADOWS 2 gets closer to release, maybe there’ll be a Castlevania blowout or something.

        • Bennijin

          Yeah I completely forgot to pick up Mirror of Fate. D’oh!

        • Some guy

          Maybe, it would be pretty great to have a sale on MOF as I prefer to wait for a bigger discount.
          Too bad Lords Of Shadows 1 is not on the marketplace

  • Smegtasticus

    Sale on Wolf Among Us only a good deal if you’re not a TellTale fanboy or had a twitch in your nose leading you to believe XBox Live might actually offer a new game by TT at any kind of discount. Microsoft, bless them, aren’t exactly Valve. :-)

  • Vinícius Nunes Menti

    First time I buy a season pass, and this was worth it since the next episode will be released in January.

  • Christopher Waling

    Black Friday sales do not count – 1. Prices might have been stupid and 2. Might have been US only

  • Chad_7Eleven

    Some hate below but I don’t get it, would be curious if everyone who is hating on this tried playing Episode 1 (which is free). If still hating on this deal after playing the first episode, I’d get it. I had no real interest in these Telltale games until I played Episode 1 earlier this week. Now I’m hooked and this was a great deal while it lasted.
