  • Michael Shelburne

    Lots of deals this week! I like it! Picking up Bastion!

  • p11sr20

    Would you still need to buy the VIP pass to play dirt 3 online?

  • Sledg

    Love these deals! Good job MS!

  • Lucky13X

    We had that feature a long time ago with the XBLA game finder. Can’t remember it’s name but it gave away a free purple dragon.

    • Alex Tran

      Would that be Destination Arcade?

      • Michael Burden

        That’s correct, but the biggest problem with that app was the fact that anything purchased there did not show in your download or purchase history as I recall, making it possible to accidentally buy a game twice and have issues downloading it again after you bought it.

  • m1nh0ca

    Let’s see if my wallet will be smashed :-)

    Anyway, depending on what I buy I will need to delete lots of stuff from my HD (I don’t like that)… 250 GB + 2X 32 GB is not enough… will never be! :-(

  • DeAtH

    Arrrggg… I cant buy Dante’s Infernos cause is IP locked…

  • fear

    thx for week sale hope to see shadow complex during the week sale
    so many new comer can enjoy it (got 4 friend who wait for a sale to get it)

    thx Major and MS

  • Legion

    Bastion for $3. If you don’t own it, there are no excuses.
    Mass Effect for $3.74…you just HAVE TO.

    It’s a bummer I have all the games I would want in today’s deal and the weekly deal, but man…there are some good titles here for great prices.

    • Damian W

      just buy it again for the sake of good deal so that you could show off to others what a good deal you got :P

    • AC130

      Unfortunately I cannot get it as I have a empty wallet til Thursday. :(

      • Legion

        Borrow $5 from a friend. NOREGRETS ha

        • AC130

          :( I guess after seeing the next day’s deals I am getting worried that the first day holds the best deals.

  • Jorge T Gonzalez

    Wow awesome sale I’m very impressed with these titles unlike the Christmas and New Years sales this is pretty good

  • Temposaur

    Armored Core seems to be $7,39 but in euros it is over 18 euros! Why everything else is on sale on euros, but not Armored Core?!

  • Christopher Waling

    This is better MS, start dropping the prices on 360 with some big discounts and you get my attention…

  • Sam

    so many good games!!!

  • Raven444

    Nice sales, Halo Reach, Bastion, Dust and Portal 2 are must buy for anyone that doesn’t have them.

  • usrev

    this is a great sale but I don’t think I want anything… this is the sort of sale you should have weekly though, seriously.

  • Anthony Evans

    Wonder whats coming up next got Arkam city woot!

  • IN_YO_FACE_86

    Well I did finally get the 1st Mass Effect out this deal.

    • Sigognac

      A great science-fiction game, from the opinion of a real science-fiction amateur. Good choice.

  • Michael

    Got Dirt 3 and might get drive SF

    • Sigognac

      Dirt 3 is an excellent rally game. You did well.

  • Chad_7Eleven

    Nice – picked up Dishonored

  • Jimminy Cricket

    Recycled deals, but still much better than the last couple of weeks offers. I’ll get alan wake for sure, and might spring for arkham city.

  • IN_YO_FACE_86

    Is Bastion a good game to buy?

    • Sigognac

      Without having played it yet, but acquired it today, I would say at this price: yes. If you appreciate a colorful isometric game. It seems to have a simple approach, but with some variety and a good narration. It can be refreshing, and personnally, it is one of those rare games that I could apreciate for pleasing visuals and clarity. Obviously, it is a more “humble” vision than common 3D games, so to appreciate in a different category.

    • Bobo Tapia

      Its a great game. If you like the trial, buy it.

  • lassenwolf

    got motocross, I like all the fame star games like this one, dorritos crash course 1 and 2, keflings and poker and its only 2 bucks

  • jeffyg3

    Was about to get Batman Arkham City, but you can get the GOTY edition with all the add-ons for cheaper on Amazon than you would get if you went with this deal and get all the add-ons in the store. Would have been nice if this was the GOTY edition for $5, that would have definitely been a good deal.

    Ah well, Dust & Alan Wake were definitely good deals
