COD, Deal, Marketplace, Xbox 360, Xbox 360 Games On Demand By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • CDMAss

    what a horrible deal.

  • Ross Kemp

    Enjoy your final burnt offering of the past pitiful 2 week daily deals…………COD:Ghosts .

  • CXK

    This is easily the worst COD. I was so disappointed with it. I’m not a hardcore player but I did buy it digitally at full price and then on XB1 for the additional $9.99. I wish I had gone physical in that case, I won’t be playing it much.

    As far as the sale goes I was thinking it would be like a grand finale with lots of GonD titles! Oh well. It’s probably best so I don’t spend money.

    • Dylan

      I agree, this is the worst COD ever. Even worse than COD 3. I actually had some hope for this one too…

      • Mikael Soltaniha

        Same, dude. I seriously though that exctinction was at least going to be somewhat fun.. nope.

        • Byyys

          This game is released on a yearly basis do you seriously think its better each time? certainly not as good as black-ops 2, that’s why Microsoft/Activision put it on sale already, if it was selling like hot cakes, they wouldn’t be any discount on the game,
          it took black-ops over a year or more to put the DLC on sale.

      • Bush

        COD3 was the last good one imo. the war game mode was the best mulitplayer of any call of duty.

    • Jamie Putnam

      I’m okay with the campaign. I’m just not enjoying the multiplayer.

    • Riddick Snipes

      When they got rid of the UAV plane, they ruined multiplayer!

  • Jamie Putnam

    Can we go ahead and get to the next Deal of the Week so we can put this day behind us?

    • KellyNUTS

      Its just a few LEGO games, not even all of them :/

      • Jamie Putnam

        Still better than this.

        • KellyNUTS

          Definitely!

      • Dylan

        The LEGO games are really good, but the discounts are pathetic. Lego Batman came out 7 years ago and their “discount” is 11.99. That’s lame.

        • KellyNUTS

          Yeah ive already got a few of them, love em myself, but your right the other LEGO games I dont own dont have a much discount at all :(

    • Ross Kemp

      I bought my kid Ghosts for xmas ,but about 5 of his pals had Lego games. They all played each others games and 3 of my boys friends said that they prefer Ghosts…crazy huh Jamie Putnam , go figure .

      • Jamie Putnam

        Yours is funny, but mine is true. My son only had 1 other friend who got the X1.

      • todd Wright

        M RATED GAME you’re a bad father

      • deadbox102

        Wow. Are we stalking?

  • Andy Wilding

    Discounted and still more expensive than a physical copy. I thought you wanted everyone to embrace a “digital future”?

    Even at £20 I would have to think hard about buying this because of how bad it is. maybe it should be next months GWG title LOL.

    • Ross Kemp

      ” deal with It “

  • chris

    Australia gets a bigger discount, but it is still too expensive. Was originally $99 here.

    • Matthew Keen

      How can they charge that much and have a clear Conscience?

      • MoocaHero

        Because money

      • Riddick Snipes

        What conscience?

      • MoocaHero

        Also, that’s video games period from my understanding when it comes to Australia.

  • Alexa Rossi

    This morning I posted a well reasoned speculation as to why this whole sale was so horrible and apparently I was right on the mark, since whoever reviews the posts decided it was not something they wanted here… there is nothing more disrespectful than the truth, it seems. :(

    • Astral_Element

      Yeah Alexa, my comments were also deleted after being reviewed for moderation. Seems quite sad that they feel they must stoop to such levels, Well at least Sleeping Dogs is free now!

  • Jamie Putnam

    Will Lego Marvel for the X1 be in the next Deal of the Week?

  • lee gutierrez

    On the bright side if you look up sleeping dogs it says free right now lol

    • Jamie Putnam

      I don’t see it.

      • lee gutierrez

        Go to most popular games on Xbox dashboard and look until you see sleeping dogs that’s how it showed up free for me

        • Jamie Putnam

          Got it. Thx.

  • lee gutierrez

    Should I get bully,ssx, or midnight club?

    • MoocaHero

      Yes.

      • lee gutierrez

        Lol I mean 1 of those

        • wuzup916

          I say bully

        • MoocaHero

          I don’t see why not all of them. :3

    • AC130

      Bully obviously :)

    • Dylan

      Bully!

    • Jared

      Bully

    • Sigognac

      It is a matter of taste and I would suggest to follow your interest.
      - SSX is a good Snowboarding game, if you like this sport and ambiance.
      - Midnight Club, for an open racing game, is also well done, if you like the urban aspect. If you do not have a good comparable racing game (Forza, Need for Speed); it could be a good choice too.
      - Bully gives you the “bad” role, and I could not opine on its technical quality, but because of this “bad” aspect, I would prefer the other ones in this order. So amidst them three, I would take SSX.
      And in this sale, I would even suggest to look at Mini Ninja, if it is 5 $ or some arcade games like Brothers and Flashback, but it is an other question..
      This said just to give an other point of view and to tell you that you can follow your taste.

    • Nathanzz

      I asked Teddy Roosevelt. He said, “Bully for you!”

    • Ross Kemp

      Bully , amazing game

  • wuzup916

      • Bush

        pick up all 10 tomb raiders on steam sales for less than the sale price of the new one on live. all 10 for 13 euro i think it was.

    • Jason Gratiot

      What sale is that part of?

      • wuzup916

        Don’t know it popped up on the website were i was getting the daily deals from

  • Nathanzz

    Now there’s one thing I still don’t understand (” ‘One’ thing?”): How does Call of Duty continue to sell so well when everybody hates it so much?

    • Jamie Putnam

      I was burnt by CoD 3 and now Ghosts. Next time I’m playing a demo first.

      • Blastergamer

        Call of Duty games don’t have demos, because Activi$ion wants you to buy it to try it.

        • Jamie Putnam

          There’s always someone around me that will have it. I’ll borrow theirs.

    • baconcheeswhiz89

      because its easy for the casual player, people that don’t know gaming will continue to buy this rubbish and hence we see the same game every year.

    • Ross Kemp

      It is made to be played by casual and non gamers such as my wife . The only 2 games she can play on my 360 is Peggle and Call of Duty MP . Scarily she often places 2nd and 3rd on her team . Now put her on Battlefield and she is a fish out of water , can not remember her ever getting one kill – hence why she never plays BF and prefers COD

      • deadbox102

        Sounds like a fake story to me.

        • Ross Kemp

          Ok , she may of got 1 kill on BF ( probably not tho )

    • Roujin

      I’ll go one step further…if Call of Duty continues to sell so well, why is MS wasting the last day of their big, two-week sale on a game that sells millions of copies anyway and has already been offered at far better prices at retail?

  • deadbox102

    Give the U.S. the 40% discount and you might have a sale.

    • NerdRage

      buy it in a store, its cheaper than this deal

  • Matthew Keen

    Watch out guys tomb raider is 2 bucks cheaper then the hard copy version.

    • MoocaHero

      Not that it matters since the definitive version comes out this month for 30 bucks.

      • Marv751972

        The definitive version of TR is $59.99 according to several sites. I say good luck with that price! What a ripoff!!

        • MoocaHero

          Well that’s for the PS4, meant to say the Game of the Year Edition which will be 30 bucks.

  • The Truth Must Be Said

    Hydrophobia
    $4.99 => $2.99
    40% off

    • evilfangs .

      Very short game. ( At least for me it was short, maybe 2 hours max. )

      Water effects were pretty decent though.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      I’ve been meaning to buy this game for some time now. At this price it’s well worth it even if it is short like everyone says. Thanks for letting me know.

      • HGamer

        Short is not the only problem.
        It’s unfinished. There is no ending. The story stopped somewhere because it was originally planned as an episodic release. But the first episode didn’t sell well. So the development work stopped..

        • ImTheMetalLord

          If only I had that info before I bought it. Oh well, such is life. Good thing I spent less than the price of a happy meal on it!

  • evilfangs .

    Anyone having any problems connecting to Xbox live? All the stutues say it’s online and fine. My speed tests are perfectly fine. I’m connected to Xbox live on my X1 but my 360 won’t connect. Every device in my house is connected to the internet fine apart from my 360.

    • Ross Kemp

      Maybe the allure of a actual decent free game courtesy of the Games on Gold programme , has crashed or overloaded the LIVE service .

      • Nexures

        dont worry everyone, this guy is just a typical hater that hates on microsoft for everything they do. keep scrolling, move on :)

        • Ross Kemp

          You see , I made a compliment on behalf of their choice of two excellent games………because they deserved a compliment . Please do not lead your life being scared to voice your true opinion . if somebody does good – you praise them – if they do bad – you let them know in no uncertain terms . My neighbours dog reminds me of you………they hardly let it in the house or show it love and as a result it yaps blindly all day long , not knowing why it is yapping – but I chuck it a bone every now and then . Theres a good boy Nexures ;)

          • Nexures

            the thing about a negative kids like you is that whatever a company does youll always hate them. all day long you sit here and offending microsoft and everyone. on every single post on every single thread

          • Ross Kemp

            LOL how so ? I complimented them on two excellent games for GonD . Your argument is defunct and showing you as a shill .

          • Nexures

            and what is it with “……” learn how to spell you idiot ^^

          • Ross Kemp

            You mad bro ?

    • deadbox102

      No problems on my end, bro.

      • evilfangs .

        A helpful Ambassador on Xbox forums helped me to fix my problem. Seemed for some reason I had a corrupted profile so I had to delete it and clear my cache three times then download my profile again.

  • Anonymous

    Lame Battlefiled 4 is better

    • Master Troll

      Why would gamers deal with a company who deletes their comments and why would you keep supporting these fascist nazis they cant even offer a decent sale but can delete your comments wake up every other comment is this sale sucks seasons greetings and more to come from M$

      • Nexures

        dont worry everyone, its the same guy that spends his entire day here making fun of microsoft. keep scrolling

        • Ross Kemp

          dont worry everyone, its the same guy that spends his entire day here sucking up to microsoft. keep scrolling

          • Nexures

            yep. sucking up on a website thats not even being monitored. GG

          • Ross Kemp

            Comments being deleted all the time . Read people saying as such .

          • Nexures

            are you honestly this retarded xD? you do realize this website’s chat is Disqus. whenever your text contains a curse word, or an offensive word its being deleted by an admin. and no i dont sit on this website all day and read people’s comments because i have a life. i wrote a looot of comments, negative and positive about microsoft and they never got deleted. You had a child (just like you) who was making fun of this website for the past week and his comments never got deleted. close minded people like you always make me laugh :’)

          • Ross Kemp

            Yet you read mine AND feel compelled to reply back – smacks of childish behaviour to me . I am truly humbled . Also , thank you for the heads up on the messages being deleted . I had no idea of the reasoning as none of mine were ever deleted as I try to put over a clear consice argument without resorting to curse words .

          • Nexures

            aaaand you missed the point, just as i thought. dumb idiot -.- some people never learn… conversation is over

          • I am Smiling

            What kind of a retort was that? Im not siding with anyone here but from what i can tell you need to resort to insults whenever you have nothing valid to point out. You call others close minded yet you respond with hate whenever someone says anything negative about Microsoft.

          • Nexures

            youve no clue what im even talking about. first of all, this chap sits all freaking day on this website, offending everyone whoever said a good thing about microsoft. you could see his name pop out on every single comment. he also pointed out that all microsoft employees are deleting the comments whenever someone speaks out ‘the truth’ about them. i simply told how retarded he was. if supposedly “all microsoft employees’ sit on this website and remove the ‘truth’ comments then how come was there a 12 yr old kid spamming messages like “xbone=fail” about 20 times on each thread and none of the comments were deleted? this guy is simply a bloody idiot

          • Ross Kemp

            You mad bro ?

          • I am Smiling

            I understand perfectly well. He constantly writes messages on here. So your response to this is simply doing the same thing? That’s what children do. The way i see it, it would make more sense to delete the comments that explain why Microsoft is being greedy. A twelve year old spamming “Xbox one = fail” doesn’t sound like a comment that threatens a companies interests. I for one am glad these people speak out, they’re all customers who use Xbox and want to see it improve. It would be so much easier to just move to another console which ive already considered, but the Xbox was the first system that got me into online gaming and ive been using mine for six years. I’ve had a lot of fun on it and it would be a shame to see it lose its appeal because Microsoft got money hungry. I agree Major Nelson doesn’t set the Games with gold or the daily deals. But commenting on this blog to let them know what we think of these deals is what will get their attention. If enough people are unsatisfied they will have to start improving, otherwise they lose customers, and ultimately profit.

          • Ross Kemp

            I am glad somebody can see I am speaking out for both poor and GOOD fan service off M$ . I am lucky to be in both camps of Xbox and PS – and how I see it , it is a very poor showing off M$ . Yet I do admit and offered my greatly appreciated thanks to the 2 GamesonGold titles for January . I have no interest in them myself as I already have these titles when they were first released . Hopefully Nexures will one day realise that speaking out over bad customer service is not trolling . Nor should I ” keep away from this blog if I am un happy with M$ ” . I have as much right here to campaign for better customer service as he does to defend M$ and their actions . How a person chooses to conduct himself during such action , should speak volumes to the neutrals that read this blog and make their own minds up on said individuals . Thank you for trying to put your 2 cent forward , I for one took it on board and absorbed it .

          • Nexures

            I dont comment on every single thing. All im saying is that he SPAMS pure hate on microsoft. No not personal opinion, i mean pure childish hate. so instead of being a total jackass why not simply f*** off and bother sony forums instead? no comments are being deleted, except for the offensive ones (threats,curse words etc.) of course, im glad as well that people speak out about the companies, and say out loud whats wrong with them, and like i said i also did write quite a lot of negative comments about microsoft (when xbone came out) and they never got deleted. I honestly dont think that microsoft got money hungry

          • Nexures

            i also dont understand the idiotic acronyms such as “M$” which make absolutely no sense. its like saying “$ony” or “$team”. simply idiotic

          • Nexures

            besides THIS IS NOT (i repeat) THIS IS NOT A MICROSOFT WEBSITE ! this is just major nelson’s blog where he shares the info. hes just a messenger, he doesnt set the ‘free games with gold’ or the sales that were here all week. so if this guy hates microsoft so much why wont he just leave? instead of spamming his hate on every bloody thread?

          • Ross Kemp

            Please explain the point I missed . I shall not hold my breath , I shall however expect a insult .

          • Does Not Equal

            There’s a moderator, but I’m pretty sure he checks to see that comments are topical and appropriate (i.e. no swearing, no personal attacks). He might also delete whiny responses, which would probably account for a lot of the deletion.

  • Guerrero Ultimo

    Where is the “Ringing in 2014 sale”? Plenty of games that could go on sale today that would make for a good sale.

  • Aidan

    Hey, Major, where’s the next “Coming Soon to Xbox Live” post? I’m dying to find out what’s coming out in the next 2 weeks.

  • Bennijin

    Digital copy for £35, that’s a sale price? It’s not like you could recently get a physical copy for £22. Oh wait, it is.

  • Brandon

    boo this sale!

    booooooooo

  • kingcrusher

    I was really expecting this sale to go out with a BOOM grand finale style, but it just fizzled with a sale that wasn’t a sale. Sad.

    • Ross Kemp

      Sleeping Dogs is amazing…….maybe spend some of your funds on it’s story DLC – especially the Nightmare at Northpoint DLC

  • MrRadiolips

    No fireworks this new year. Why are we still MS?

    • NerdRage

      are we? i will only buy walking dead and south park for the 360 and than gift it away, and i won’t buy an x-bone fore sure

  • Roujin

    It’s unfortunate that the Countdown to 2014 wrapped up in such an unfortunate way. It’s bad enough that only one title, Ghosts, was featured, but the discount itself has already been more than matched in recent sales at RETAIL. The rule of thumb with these one-day sales should be that a minimum of 2-4 different games should be featured, so that there’s a better chance of there being something for everyone. It’s a bit insulting to assume that EVERYONE is interested in CoD and make that the final sale, when the final day should be something BIG that everyone looks forward to. The Trials one-day sale was also incredibly disappointing, as an entire day that Microsoft could have been selling multiple games was thrown away on a couple of niche titles that only addressed one small segment of customers. That said, the GwG for Janauary are a big step in the right direction. Sleeping Dogs was a great title that I already bought, finished and sold, but I’m happy to download it again in order to finish the achievements I didn’t get the first time around. I also appreciated the sale on the two story DLC packs, which I purchased alongside. I never got around to playing Lara Croft: Guardians of Light either, so again a winner for me.

    What seems to set PS Plus apart from GwG is that PS Plus tends to feature more games per month (at least four, each generally in different genres), they tend to be newer games, often having come out that same year, and they are featured for the entire month. Increasing the number and variety of games in GwG offerings and monthly sales would do much to increase their impact and improve customer impressions.

    • B00ME

      MS doesn’t care about customer impressions, it’s all about their bottom line.

      • kingcrusher

        Are you telling me that MS is a business first and foremost? Noooooooo!!!! :P While MS definitely could have done more, the end really didn’t surprise me. We go through this every year. If the XBox wasn’t so awesome, I would have given up a long time ago, but I just love the controller and the games. So I’ll just mope a little and then move on.

    • Riddick Snipes

      It’s OK for ms to assume everyone is interested in cod. But…….. like me for example, I was interested in ghosts so I got it at launch. So the sale is useless to me.

  • Virualboy

    Wiiu outsold xbox1 last week , not surprised wiiu is gainig momentum into 2014 mario 3d was in top ten

    • Guest

      XBOX 1 sold 307k, Wii U 319, PS4 656k.. so the wiiu ant that big of a gap as the xbox one and ps4 which sold more than both combined.

      • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

        The numbers are incorrect…..Proper ones can be seen here

          It dosent matter what numbers you go by, xbone is still selling bad compared to PS4 and WiiU… i wonder why eh?

    • Fred

      Odd Christmas sales this year. Some stores in my area has the Wii U basic for $90 if you could find one (the standard was $250 with 2 games). I never saw an Xbox One or PS4 actually available at retail at all (always sold out), and the 360 was cheaper earlier in the year than it was at Christmas.

      Hoping for 1 more edition of the 360 with a smaller footprint before they stop making them altogether, but I still feel it offers the best bang for the buck at the moment. I’m still 1 year away and 1 hardware model from picking up an Xbox One.
