  • The Truth Must Be Said

    Just Cause 2
    is the free game for gold subscriptions for next month

    • evilfangs .

      I’m sorry someone here will complain about that like usual.

      • The Truth Must Be Said

        I won’t complain about this one because:
        1) It’s Free
        2) it’s GoD

        :D

    • Know your ABC’s

      They’re still continuing that? I thought it lasted until December.

      • Master Chief

        They said they gonna continue with free games for gold.

    • David Drummond

      awesome… i wanted to play that. Loved the first one

    • CXK

      I’ll take that. I never bought it.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      Alright! That is actually a good game and a sleeper hit. i sold my copy off before i finished it so that is good news to me.

      • Brian Eyekon Koehler

        I loan mine to my lil cousin so this is great news all I gotta do now is download the digital copy and let him keep it a glorious day for games with gold

    • Jamie Putnam

      Looks like they may be trying to put a little more meat in the Game with Gold.

    • Paris Vaunter

      How do you know?

      • The Truth Must Be Said

        http : // www . xbox . com/ja-JP/live/games-with-gold

        • AC130

          I hate to burst your bubble but they have a completely different version of the game and MS rarely define the difference in versions. Likely Japan only.

    • Nox

      well the first game bought for my 360 was just cause

    • Toni Turunen

      third good games with gold game :)

    • Nexures

      how do you know ?

    • Nexures

      if youre right then thats AWESOME !!! finally theyre giving out some good games !!

    • AC130

      Hope not

  • Know your ABC’s

    I know that they had already had these on sales plenty of times but I wish they would put the DLC’s for both Skyrim and Fallout. My wallet always seems to be empty whenever something is good on sale.

    • Master Chief

      They had skyrim for black friday and fallout 3 dlc sometime b4. So doubt it but waiting for new vegas…

      • Paris Vaunter

        Steam has New Vegas on sale today and I’ve noticed that Steam and Xbox have had the same games on sale so here’s to hoping New Vegas is on sale here tomorrow or Tuesday.

  • Matthew Keen

    I have a stupid feeling tomorrow is gonna be another zombie day.

    • Know your ABC’s

      Actually from the pattern I am seeing, every 2 days.

    • Gazza!!!

      Its even worse, its assassin creed games and dlc.

      • Master Chief

        UGHHHHH european dashboard?

        • Gazza!!!

          Aprantly its on the dash as an ad and but I haven’t seen it. That and a lot of people who knew the other deals said it would be.

          • Master Chief

            Is AC4 on there? Cuz Steam has it for 45 bux tmrw I believe so if MS goes for 40 bux I might get it

          • Gazza!!!

            All I can be sure of is 25% off ac4’s season pass.

          • マリオ

            I hope it’s not another season pass day like TWAU.

      • Paris Vaunter

        I don’t think so dude they just had AC games & dlc on sale a couple weeks ago.

      • That Guy

        That’s BS they just had it a month or 2 ago(and the prices then were terrible).

  • Know your ABC’s

    Does anyone know why Battlefield 4 is not on the marketplace?

    • DaWhiteBrotha

      Because it was never beta tested. They just released it in beta and called it a game.

      That is why 3 law firms are suing them. Game is a disaster and incredibly unethical it was released in its current form.

      • Jamie Putnam

        Yea this put it on sell now and fix it later needs to stop. I may start charging rent for the use of my hard drive space with all the updates needed to fix the games purchase.

        • DaWhiteBrotha

          And so does this new practice of releasing half a game and charging you another $30-$40 to buy the other half of game.

          What use to cost us $50 or $60 is now pricing at $100-$120 when all said and done.

          90% of the time the DLC is made and held off disc and just waiting a month to release at $10-$15.

          It is disgusting. It is pure greed!!!

          • AC130

            Over here we always pay close to $100 for games anyway so for me it would be close to $200 if you threw in the season pass. Good thing I learned from BF3s fledgling launch and held off on BF4. Love how they patch campaign save corruption on every console except 360.

      • Nexures

        i realy hope the whole EA will go bankrupt. Remember the time where bf used to be better than cod? pepridge farm remembers..

  • Charles

    ASSASINS CREED IV Next Deal, 100% confirm Europe Dash

    • Master Chief

      AC4 GonD, DLC, season pass, or whut?

      • Charles

        At the moment, only they have put the image, in 1 hour they will put the discount

      • Charles

        Perhaps, seasson pass

      • Some guy

        Season Pass 25% Off for sure.
        The rest is up to Ubisoft

    • secondnikki

      Boooo..

    • Nexures

      eeewww why ac4 ;/ this game is horrible

      • Simon Fry

        what!? the games amazing, So different from previous versions but…in my opinion it done exactly what was needed :)

        • Nexures

          well obviously youre not an ac fan then. or youre just a stupid fanboy thats too blind to see this game is dead

          • AC130

            Agreed will not touch another AC after ACIII so over AC games the first two were brilliant and then they got worse and worse. They really should look at what made the first two so mindblowing.

          • Nexures

            its too late, the damage ish done ^^

  • secondnikki

    Sfvtk please!!!!!! Oh and darksiders 1 and 2. They never been on sale before..

    • André

      why darksiders? you can get them for 4 ou 5 bucks each

      • secondnikki

        Can’t deal with hard copy’s. Plus those games are amazing

        • Alexa Rossi

          Living in a household with small kids, I prefer digital copies; one less reason to strangle them… But I think it’s high time the prices are adjusted to reflect the cheaper delivery costs.

        • André

          “Can’t deal with hard copy’s.” that just blew my mind. well if your having troubles with dealing with hard copies ill be happy to make a quick tutorial

          1. Buy a new copy or a used copy ( you’ll see that in 99% of the games its cheaper than the digital ones)
          2. Open the game case
          3. Carefully remove the DVD
          4. Cick on the little arrow to open the tray
          5. Insert game
          6: Close the tray (again clicking on the little arrow)
          7. Now this is a tricky one, but if you can manage i recommend that you install the game this way you get the same experience of a digital copy, but without having your wallet vacuumed by MS
          8. Enjoy the game (or not if its one of MS GWG)

          Hope this helped, good luck and if at first you don’t suceed try again

          • AC130

            Ummm…. Which way do I put disc in I tried putting it shiny side up and it no work.

          • André

            Put the side of the disc with pictures facing up

          • AC130

            Ok so I try that and it says disc is not readable what do? There is smoke coming out of xbox :S

          • André

            Is there a red ring surrounding the power button?

          • AC130

            Only 3 :(

          • André

            Wait for it.You’ll get the 4th soon enough ;). After that, just do as MS recommends. Trow it in the trash and get the new model

          • AC130

            Ok thanks I only gave M$ $400 saved me a tonne of cash. Even though I now have an infestation of hobos going through my trash. BTW where is the disc tray on the new model I cannot find button.

          • André

            Can’t really help you there my Slim is still working. But im sure it will burn out soon so i can have the pleasure of giving MS some more money and get a Super Slim. Ill let you know then

          • secondnikki

            Hahahahah… That was funny but pointless

      • DaWhiteBrotha

        AND have a physical copy of a disc as well.

        Digital copy is a virtual thing with about zero value.

        I want something that is real any chance I get.

    • Jim Charette

      Darksiders 1 was on sale before. I picked it for $10 on last years holiday sale which was actually 100 times better than this year’s sale,

  • Nightm4r3z

    Can we confirm deal as AC4 DLC Yet?

  • Charles

    Season Pass de Assassin’s Creed® IV, 25% discount………. BOOOOOO

    • Takeshi Kovacs

      That’s it? Rubbish.

    • Nightm4r3z

      I agree, wasn’t the pass on deal a week or two back? hopefully they’ll add some more bits :s

    • G Norton

      and seasons pass for batman arkham origins too

  • Charles

    Batman: Arkham Origins Seasson Pass….. 30% discount…… BOOOOOO too

  • Takeshi Kovacs

    Microsoft sure doesn’t want me to spend any of the money in my account apparently.

    • Billy Franklin

      Feeling the exact same. I been waiting to spend the last of my money fora ages nothing is grabbing my attention. losing interest in this sale tbh

  • Charles

    Metro: Last Light season pass/ Injustice: Gods Among Us season pass, 50% OFF………..

  • Master Chief

    Injustice Season Pass – $7.49 – 50% off – xbldb
    Metro Last Light Season Pass – $7.49 – 50% off – xbldb
    Arkham Origins Season Pass – $13.99 – 30% off – xbldb
    Assassin’s Creed ®IV Season Pass – $14.99 – 25% off – xbldb

    • Takeshi Kovacs

      Season passes aren’t games, way to be bloody cheap Microsoft.

      • Master Chief

        Do you think they will put these games GonD tmrw as final sale???

        • Takeshi Kovacs

          I’m guessing tomorrow is going to be Hexic HD, Doritos Crash Course 1 & 2, and that poker game.

          • Nexures

            theyre all free on xbox marketplace you dumb fanboy

          • Takeshi Kovacs

            That was sort of the point… they haven’t really given out any good deals in two bloody weeks so they’ll probably just put the free stuff on “sale.”

          • Nexures

            if i had batman,metro,injustice or was a fan of ac4 id defo buy those season passes. its a very good sale if youre looking for dlcs -.- keep on hating

          • Takeshi Kovacs

            If you had those games you would’ve already bought the season passes, stop being a troll.

          • Nexures

            ? nice comeback lol

          • Nightm4r3z

            Nexures, you obviously did not pick up on the sarcasm huh?

          • Master Chief

            CMON WHY NO METRO LL GOND???

          • Takeshi Kovacs

            GASP… and actually put something on sale that’s not ancient? NEVAR

          • Master Chief

            Black Friday sales was so much better.

          • AC130

            Or even the Ubisoft one before this one that was pure gold compared to this sale.

    • The Truth Must Be Said

      I don’t like these deals
      NO GAMES ?! WHY ?!

    • Jim Charette

      Only Season Passes??? Are you shitting me M$!?!?!?

    • AC130

      Wow I am dissapointed how about they actually put something on sale that people need. Injustice Season pass = skins; so nope. Metro LL ehhh… maybe but do not have either of the Metro games. Arkham Origins was a complete flop and ACIV I hold no interest for since ACIII burnt me out.
      It would of been nice to hold a bunch more season passes for sale like Forza 4, GoW3, Judgement, W@W Map packs, Halo DLC/Season Pass, Skate DLC, Mass Effect DLC, NFS DLC, Fable III DLC etc So much OP DLC out there and there are only 3 or 4 items on sale here and there mostly stuff that has already been in sales before.

    • Jamie Putnam

      Well it’s not GoD, but I can use 3 out of 4 of these.

    • Jared

      Don’t for get Saints Row IV Season Pass Price: $6.99 xbldb

  • Takeshi Kovacs

    Games with Gold for January 2014 probably will be Just Cause 2. I just looked it up and it’s one of the few GoD that’s at the $14.99 price point that GreedSoft never seems to go over.

    • Dylan

      Really good choice this time.

      • Takeshi Kovacs

        I’d rather it be some random, off-the-wall title that not many have played but should have, i.e. DarkStar One or Alpha Protocol

        • Dylan

          I suppose. But I’m comparing Just Cause with all the other atrocious selections. It’s a lot better than the others.

          • AC130

            I am surprised if there are people that have not played Just Cause 2. One of the best titles this gen.

          • Master Chief

            I played it on PC but want it on xbox for the achievements.

          • AC130

            You can find it for less then 10 anywhere in the world and it is worth it.

          • Billy Franklin

            At a guess Jan Games with Gold will be more old outdated games and arcade titles that no one plays

          • AC130

            lol probably I was really hoping for some excuse to find a cheap one month code to nab some decent free games. But considering they over 500 titles to choose from no doubt they will pick the worst ones. Still not sure how we got lucky with Dead Rising 2 fun game.

          • Billy Franklin

            And Fable 3 Both that and Dead Rising were the only games I found were worthwhile…

          • AC130

            Fable III I have so much hate for that game destroyed all that was left to say credible about Fable. Never seen a series shovel so much garbage XBLA games, Kinect only title and now they have another off-shoot for next-gen. I will be happy with Fable 1 in HD.

        • Some guy

          Would love some DarkStar One as I have Alpha protocol.
          People will go insane if it’s actually that though.

          • Dylan

            Alpha Protocol is the most underrated game of this generation. One of the only RPG’s in which dialogue and choices actually mattered.

          • Some guy

            Yea, gameplay is broken but it’s still great, shame no games actually have choices now. Hell, True Crime LA, Shadow The hedgehog had choices and they weren’t RPGs.

          • Jim Charette

            I liked Alpha Protocol. It was a bit buggy but it was a great spy rpg. It’s $4.99 @ Gamestop right now

  • Tania Sakelariou

    give as at least Mirrors Edge or some good old games.These sales are soooo bad.I just bought duck tales and charlie murder.And a BIG zero from the daily deals…

    • Takeshi Kovacs

      That would make customers happy and promote sales for the reboot of Mirror’s Edge. Why would Microsoft want to do that?

      • Maureen Coronado

        yeah at least mirror´s edge come on !! . .

    • Jim Charette

      Mirror’s Edge is an awesome game! I’d definitely buy it if they put it on sale. Also I love Charlie Murder too. The guys at Ska Studios are really talented.

  • Master Chief

    So guys should I get State of Decay or hope to wait out for the last day?

    • Billy Franklin

      I was going to get it but my Brother and a Friend advised me against it. depends on personal taste

      • MyCodenameIsIan

        I’d pick up State of Decay, tomorrow is just a bunch of season passes.

        Saints Row IV Season Pass 30% off now £4.72
        Injustice: Gods Among Us Season Pass 50% off now £4.99
        Metro: Last Light Season Pass 50% off now £4.99
        Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass 30% off now £9.44
        Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag Season Pass 25% off now £11.99

  • イサム オミナエ

    M$ are really asking and giving good reasons to the consumers go to the PlayStation side.
    4 season passes CAN’T be the deal, PSN deals are much better! (and steam deals are light years better than M$ in the entire year!)

    • http://instasynch.com/rooms/asstube CoonDaddy

      Steam sales are also lightyears ahead of PSN’s rental service. Not to mention, PC can actually do more than 25 fps.

  • IRioT

    Got excited when I saw Metro Last Light.. then noticed it’s only the season pass. Another day wasted.

    • Billy Franklin

      Season passes meh !! :(

  • マリオ

    OMG Season Pass Day!!?? What a waste,

    • マリオ

      They love to hate me. haha

    • AC130

      At this rate I am regretting not grabbing the deals at the start of the sale at least those were decent.

  • Alexa Rossi

    The way things are going, the last day of this sale will be Tiger Woods or somesuch thing… enjoy.

    • Know your ABC’s

      What are you talking about? Are you saying Tiger Woods is a bad game. It’s an amazing game. You get to hit golf balls and… hit more golf balls. Okay I give up I cannot even make that game sound appealing.

      • AC130

        Throw it at someone for free and they are likely to take an interest.

        • Master Chief

          NO dont let MS read ur comment. The next game for gold could be a Tiger Woods game.

          • Alexa Rossi

            Now you’ve made me feel both worried and guilty.

          • AC130

            I do not think they would most of them have no servers and besides every-one knows EA do not want anything to do with Tiger Woods a.k.a he has got wood.

    • http://instasynch.com/rooms/asstube CoonDaddy

      The last day is a bunch of DLC for batman oranges and doubleasscreed blackflag.

      • Know your ABC’s

        Proof?

  • André

    Dear MS

    I’m not even going to talk about Steam or PS Plus anymore. Let me tell you what i did today. So today i went to GAME and guess what i bought? Well just some games that my collection was missing. Games like Mass Effect 1,2,3 Lollipop Chainsaw, Vikings and both METRO games. Care to take a guess at how much did that cost me? Well i’ll tell you, just under 45 euros. For 7 games including some AAA titles.

    Now let me ask you is this how you want to promote the “digital era”. I can say that with this great sales your having im 100% sold on the idea. Keep up the good ork

    • Billy Franklin

      great bargain there well done.. MS will never match digital with in store sales. they dont care enough to try match

    • MoocaHero

      They don’t care about the digital era anymore. Since ya know, “Waaaahhhh, DRM! WAAAAAH SHARE MY GAMES WITH FRIENDS!”

      • Dylan

        Yes, because once Microsoft had a complete oligarchy over the market, they’d suddenly decide to give a flexible pricing system.

        That’s not how it works. Trust is earned. The backlash wasn’t whining for once, the complaints had legitimacy. Their pricing system wouldn’t have changed, it might have even gotten worse.

        And we all saw what happened to MSN music…

      • André

        Im not so sure about that only time will tell. Also i don’t think that people were that worried about sharing games with friends. Its more about the fact that they couldn’t sell a game they bought.

      • http://instasynch.com/rooms/asstube CoonDaddy

        Even though most people are online 24/7 anyhow.

        I HATE having a collection of boxes. It was cool when you’re 11, but what the hell am I supposed to do with a bunch of video game boxes??

        • André

          Well if you hate them you can always sell them after you play a game. Isn’t that a far more intelligent move then paying more for digital and then simply delete the game when your finish (because you can only have so many games on the huge space that MS made available).

          About the coolness of it, it wasn’t cool when you were 11 (i threw all the boxes away, but i still had the carts) and its not cool now, but when i pay for something i expect to be able to hold it in my hand and be able to resell it to get some money back if i want to.

          • http://instasynch.com/rooms/asstube CoonDaddy

            Sell them and make about 20$?

  • Nightm4r3z

    on uk dash season pass is £11.99 for AC4…same price it was a week or two ago, WTF are the doing?

  • Ross Kemp

    Haha , something that is useful to me ( read , not something I was in desperate need of ) – gonna get me some Metro LL season pass . Thank you , I suppose M$ and Major Letdown

  • Jared

    Well people one more day we cry once Again.

    • Nightm4r3z

      …been crrying since the xbox was released mate, 5-7 rrod’s, COUNTLESS money spent on marktplace, MASSIVE gamerscore…and they offered me “Free dlc characters for killer instinct on xbox one”…Taking the piss mate :(

      • Ross Kemp

        Amen to that brother . Playstation Plus = the gift that keeps on giving .

        • Jared

          Don’t for get Steam

          • Nightm4r3z

            ye i’m already with steam, had a ps3 too a while back and was getting SO MUCH MORE with PS+,…maybe the PS4 Is the New Direction That I Need to take sorry MS But its True, :s

          • https://twitter.com/SidiousStrange Gibson

            Man, I am a big fan of Xbox. But I too went thru my share of 360’s. My launch console lasted a good bit, but finally RRoD’d on me. From there, I went thru a series of problems trying to get that original one replaced. By the time it was settled, I think I’d went thru 4 or 5 units. Eventually, I upgraded to the slimmer black model (largely for the bigger hard drive). It has worked fine for me. But That still puts me at going thru 4 or 5 units before settling on buying a newer model.
            I ended up going with a PS4 for the launch of this generation, for several reasons. Price. Playstation Plus. I was impressed with the direction Sony was going with PS4 (and that they seemed to learn from their mis steps with PS3). I wasn’t being forced to pay $100 for a camera that i am not interested in. And so far I’m happy with my choice. But I do still love Xbox (and play my 360 a lot), and I plan to get an Xbox One down the road, after the price drops. Once I feel I’m no longer being asked to pay an extra $100 for the Kinect, then I’ll try to get one.

          • Dylan

            Same! I started on original Xbox, loved it. My first 2 Xbox 360’s got the RROD, and I continually had to keep replacing them with my warranties. Even my special Halo 3 Xbox, now I only have the Halo 3 hard drive left. THink I’ve gone through 5-6 Xbox’s.

            2009 I started to get really sick of the direction Microsoft was heading. All of their exclusives were rehashes or uninteresting sequels. No new IP’s, no great exclusives. I loved my 360 overall, but Microsoft did a poor job supporting it after the awesome year of 2007.

            In 2011 I finally succumbed and got a PS3. It is so great and library is diverse and spectacular. Sony really supported the console. PS+ is such a deal, and really great.

            This time I jumped in with PS4 right away. The cheaper price point, and the TRUST of supporting the platform the entire generation made me go Sony this time. And the controller is great too. I’ll probably get an Xbox One when the price drops like you, like I did the PS3 this gen.

            So…for a XBOXer like myself, Would You Suggest the PS4? Because I’m Not all that sure that the ps4 and Xboxone Graphics are gonna be all that better you know?

            Oh yeah. The graphics on both are impressive… graphics are not going to be what separate the two. It is about the services offered, they types of games and exclusives and the optional bells and whistles. Xbox One has went very multimedia heavy, focusing a good part of their resources on the ability to play television and using the Kinect as a part of the interface. MS wants the XBOne to be the center of, not just your gaming experience, but your entire my multimedia experience. Sony offers and will continue to offer many multimedia options as well, but they have focused their efforts largely on the gaming aspect of the system. And for me, that is what I wanted. But I’ve seen both systems, and I know friends who have both. They are both impressive. But I’m very happy with going PS4 to start. I still have my 360 so I still have connections to the Xbox experience and community. And I will likely still get an Xbox One eventually. But I’m very happy with the PS4. The controller is greatly improved over the PS2/PS3 design. In fact, it is on par or better (in my sole opinion) than the excellent Xbox 360 controller. I’ll reserve judgement in comparing it to the Xbox One controller as my experience with it has been limited so far. But I adore the new PS4 controller. The online experience is hugely improved over what Sony offered on PS3, and PS Plus is a great deal. Not only does it allow Sony the extra capital to invest in improving their online service, security and stability over time, but the discounts and freebies they offer are top notch and worth the price! And the variety of game types in development for PS4 covers a lot more ground than what we see on Xbox in general. You still have your FPS and action games. But they are not afraid to support JRPGs and smaller, less popular genres. And while MS has come a long way recently in their mindset and policies concerning indie games, Sony has lead the way in that department.
            In closing, you’ll likely enjoy whichever one you get. But my two cents is that if gaming is your focus, the PS4 is the place to start. If a wider entertainment service is what you need, the Xbox One is it.

            Indeed , they literally do give their games away for free on STEAM .

        You have to be pretty retarded to buy 5-7 of an item. It feels like you’re making it up though.

        • Nightm4r3z

          You would also have to be pretty retarded to insinuate that I “Bought” 5-7 When I merely said I “HAD” 5-7…but Logic isnt for all of us my friend :s

          • AC130

            I had 1 5 years and still going. Sucks to see that you went thru 5-7

          • Nightm4r3z

            And Hopefully you wont have a problem with it “Knocks on wood”, Here’s hoping that Tomorrow Brings us all something we can actually call “A Deal” :)

  • chase

    and not even for bioshock infinite or state of decay… wow

    • Jared

      hum body bioshock infinite was on sale Last week, State of decay is on sale.

      • RatMan

        I think he meens the season pass/ dlc of those games

        • chase

          yeah it was kind of obvious being season pass day and all lmao

  • Jamie Putnam

    I’m a Atlanta Falcons fan and feel like living this season twice with the Countdown.

  • Thomas Gilmore

    I guess putting the games on sale alongside their season passes wasn’t smart business, huh, guys?

  • Bobby B

    Saints Row IV Season Pass is also on sale!

  • Austin

    You know, I get not liking the deals, but thinking they are better over on the PS3 is kind of ludicrous. While Sony has better free games, Microsoft is much better at discounts. For example, The PSN weekly sale has Epic Mickey and Epic Mickey Two as headliners, for $3.75 and $10, Ducktales is 7 bucks, and Terrarria is $13.50. For their holiday sales GTA V is $40 Diablo 3 is $35. Nothing really special, especially considering that GTA V as a download suffers from some terrible pop in.

  • Ted

    I like how the ONE day I’m not home and have no Internet access is the day state of decay is on sale. I hate you so much Microsoft…so much.

    • I am Smiling

      You can still buy it…the sale is still open for at least a few more hours.
