  • Cookiehead

    Total garbage compared to yesterday. Let’s get those castlevanias up here! Hoping tomorrow is better.

  • andre

    Boooooooooo!!!!! Hopefully tomorrow is way better.

  • Jhon Jones

    Hey Microsoft, please, please, pleeeeease lift the 32GB limit for external USB drive storage. I have a fat Xbox 360 plus USD 320 in my account but I’m unable to buy any of the deals because I don’t have any free space available.

    As my console is the fat model, things get worse. I’m not able to find any new 320 GB hdd in microsoft store.

    That could be easily solved if Microsoft could lift the 32 GB USB limit.

    • AC130

      Yeah ridiculous having all these sales and I have stuff from 2 years ago still waiting to download due to lack of space. :(

      • Jhon Jones

        I’m affraid of what will happen when the servers go down within the next couple of years.

        • AC130

          Oh gosh :( I guess piracy will go through the roof.

        • ryder4life22187

          Why be afraid just make a backup of your digital games, dlc to another HDD. I currently have a back HDD sitting on a 1 TB drive sure it doesn’t work on the 360 but anytime you want to play that game u just transfer it to ur 360 HDD

    • Riddick Snipes

      Try eBay for 250 or 320g fat hard drives. Should b bout $70 aus. Their not official but I’ve heard their good. I myself got an Xbox 360 E console 4gb just after Xmas for $79!!! We had a $100 dollars cash back deal here in aus and I somehow picked up a slim hard drive 320g for $47!!! Top deal and its so nice to have extra space. I was maxed at 120 plus usbs for 2 years.

      • Ross Kemp

        I thought external storage was capped at 32 GB , if so then just HOW are you running a 250 GB external drive on your 360 ?

        • Ross Kemp

          Ahh I read it wrong , you bought a 360 HDD , you had my hopes up there :)

  • José Netto

    It’s actually not a bad sale on F1 2013… haven’t seen this price anywhere else for a new copy…
    As for the rest that I find interesting
    ACBrotherhood – vulgar price
    LPlanet 2 – vulgar price
    Darksiders II – probably still a bit too high…

    …and agree with you m8s complaining about hard drive issue… don’t see why not unblock the 32Gb limitation… at least to something bigger… like 120Gb? …hell, even just over to 64Gb would sound like a charm :)

    • http://www.kevin-fell.co.uk/ Kevin Fell

      I dont think today is that bad either. I’m glad the message about HDD space appears to be the big gripe with the 360 atm. Its an unnecessary limitation which is holding it back. Hopefully this is the opportunity we need to make MS to take note.

    • Dylan Davis

      Darksiders 2 is actually cheaper than when I bought it on sale 2 or 3 weeks ago, pretty decent buy except there are two achievements you can’t get due to a server being done and the other being an achievement for getting all the achievements…

      • Michael Burden

        Nordic just fixed that so those achievements are now obtainable again.

    • Jarrod38

      The price for Darksiders 2 is actually a good deal. All the major stores still want it for like $35 to 50.

      • AC130

        There is a complete pack with both Darksiders as a plus they fixed the broken achievements. More value and at a good price too.

      • fear

        duh!!! it all over the place under 19.99$ darksider II limited edition (futureshop and best buy) so price not good at all….

  • Juan

    Not very good compared to yesterday.

  • Dylan Davis

    While I don’t think I will buy anything today, these deals are actually pretty good, everyone seems to expect Steam type sales and never really appreciates when we get something like this.

  • Alex Tran

    There’s a Day 2?!?!!?

    Didn’t see that coming.

    • Sigognac

      In the case some would wonder about it, there are some games that are on sale for the whole week. An other part changes every day, so the sale should include at least 5 different daily offers (the last one tending to last for the weekend usually).

    • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

      It’s a 7 day sale.

  • itsjustme

    “now through tomorrow only (19 February 2014)”. It’s Feb 18 and I don’t see the deals. What time are these deals supposed to show up? U.S. eastern time zone over here.

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    Hey guys can you give me advice? I’ve wanted to snag darsiders 2 for a while now I’ve just had so many games backed up that I had to play and it was always 59 bucks on the live store.. I’m just wondering if you guys think this game is worth the time? How long is the campaign? Is it open world? And finally how is the story? I know you can read all about it, I just much rather hear opinions of regular gamers over rearing reviews on sites.. thanks in advance fellas ! Also I’m in the middle of downloading strider on my Xbox One ;) hoping its gonna be sweet!

    • Riddick Snipes

      I haven’t played darksiders 2 yet, but I actually got it 2 days ago from my video shop for $5. Its said to hold its ground amongst titles like DMC or Dantes inferno….2 games I love to bits. Can’t wait to play it. Busy getting stuck into bastion. I’m hanging to play the new strider trial 2nite on 360. And yes I know the 360 is 720p and 1080p on the one but thems the breaks. So far this sale I’ve got bastion and motocross madness. $5 aus for both. I’m pretty happy.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Yeah I might check out my game store before paying 14.99 for it. I was always baffled at how it cost 59.99 on the live store I haven’t played the first one either. Oh and strider is pretty cool.. I never played any of the other ones but I know this one is really fast paced and gets pretty good once you get some new powers

    • dools

      If you played and enjoyed Darksiders 1 then I’d definitely recommend 2.Length wise the campaign is probably around the 15hr mark but there is a ton of optional stuff to do that can easily add many more hours to the game.It is open world in the same way as the likes of zelda i.e you can explore but many areas will be inaccessible without the right item/equipment or too difficult if you’re too low level.Story wise I can’t say it was too memorable(it’s been over a year since I played it) but if you liked the first ones story then you’ll probably enjoy this one

      The one suggestion I will make is check how much a new physical copy of the limited edition costs where you live.The limited edition includes the Argul’s Tomb DLC which adds another couple of hours of gameplay.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Thanks a lot man ! All very good info and yeah I’m definitely going to take your advice because I’m thinking that I saw that one at the store before! Thanks again

    • Some guy

      Gameplay is Assassin’s Creed tier, if you like the series, you’ll like it.
      Fighting is pretty boring like DmC.
      Story is weak(help people out because you can then have no idea what do next)
      Loot is Borderland tier.
      Exploring is useless thanks to the loot system.
      So it’s a mix between AC, Borderland and DmC.

    • avi

      if you enjoy zelda, I think you’d like darksiders.

  • HGamer

    Although no game interests me, the discount % are much more
    aggressive recently. Hope this is because MS improving its marketing
    strategy, not because MS giving up 360……..

  • fear

    were are the good game??

    shadow complex
    diswaher vampire smile
    diswasher dead samurai
    super contra
    omega five
    death smile II
    south park tower defense


    MS should improve in quality instead of % rebate on cheap game

    • AC130

      I just want Shadow Complex and an RPG/racer that hasn’t been on sale a million times.

      • Sigognac

        If it can help, concerning racing games, Dirt 3 is on sale actually, for an excellent rally game, and Ridge Racer: Unbounded seems fine too (on sale if you have “gold”).

        • AC130

          Thanks not sure which is better though. Dirt 3 seems to have supreme quality while Ridge Race U looks like some Burnout, Split/Second and NFS mix.

      • HGamer

        Dust An Elysian Tail, which is 80% off right now, is also a metroidvania game. The exploration part is not as deep as Shadow Complex, but the combat is very fast paced and enjoyable. Story is good too. Overall a good game.

        • AC130

          Ok thanks I may get it I missed it last sale. Thought it was fairly fun from the demo.

    • Cookiehead

      I’m dying for deathsmiles 2 to go on sale.

    • Mr XBob

      All of those games have been on sale before. Wake up and smell the angry fanboy, folks.

      • fear

        that all you come with calling other fanboy? you must be like 12…

    • Some guy

      What is so good about Death smile anyway?
      Saw the first at a store earlier and it seemed like every Cave SHMUP ever.

      • fear

        the game is average (but worth playing) only problem 29.99$ it to high for it so a sale for that game would made many buy it (many hold themselves off due price is to high)

        • Some guy

          Sounds about right, saw the first one for 15$
          But I don’t like bullet hell so I went with Raiden Aces/IV

      • ryder4life22187

        deathsmiles 2 is a good quick game has a Christmas theme to it but only prob is they never did an English translation on it so its in Japanese only. I only bought it when MS store had the points discounted

  • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

    I’m tempted to pick up Soulcalibur 2. Hmm..

    • Riddick Snipes

      I would if I were you. I got it at launch for $26.95 in Australia. Oh well. I wasn’t expecting the next batch of games till 2moro.

  • Dung Tuan Phung

    Is Hell Yeah! worth it?

    • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

      Try the demo to see if you like it.

    • AC130

      I thought it was alright got bored never finished so I cannot say how the ending turned out.

    • Riddick Snipes

      Yeah try it out. I think its pretty good. Especially for only a few bucks.

    • Some guy

      Kinda, exploring is somewhat fun but that’s about it.
      It’s so easy and unchallenging that I had to stop after a few hours to do something fun.

  • MacPh1sto

    Hahaha Farming Simulator??? Really? I don’t know what’s more hilarious about it: that such a “game” even exists, or that they were originally charging THIRTY dollars for it! Oh well I guess this sales event can go nowhere but up from this.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      have you played it? no? some people go through life thinking they know everything when in reality they know nothing.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall


      • MacPh1sto

        As a matter of fact, I grew up on a farm, so I know it’s not worth simulating.

    • EldritchWarlord

      Occupation Simulator games are fairly popular in Europe, and they sell them for full price.

  • TheCalmWolf

    Give us Forza4 with a HEFTY rebate.. got the urge for some forza back :)

    • AC130

      I would just like most of the Disc 2 content at 90% off so I can have the complete experience. Seems M$ like to release a version with half the content trimmed.

      • TheCalmWolf

        yeah my brother just “experienced” the same.. thats really not a nice way to do business..

        • ryder4life22187

          how do you figure that. Whether they gave you a full game or half game at least it is better than nothing. Back PS1, and Sega Saturn days you got a demo disc of random games at least they give you a game whether its trimmed down or not

          • AC130

            So I should be happy that they sell a trimmed bundle copy as the full retail copy. If you did not realise that there was a trimmed copy it is very easy to end up buying it and finding out it has only one disc and that disc will not function with Disc 2 from the normal copy. Probably why I will not touch another Forza game; Turn 10 are ridiculous with the milking anyway.

  • Parazels

    I wonder why there have never been FIFA or PES on sales! Meanwhile I often notice NBA games, for example.

    • Gazza!!!

      FIFA has been on sale recently, during Christmas I recall.

      • Parazels

        Really? Hm, may be. Probably it wasnt as cheap as the today games on sales. I would get PES 14 for €10.

        • Oski918

          Fifa will be on sale today. ;)

  • Jimminy Cricket

    Can’t pass up soul caliber 2 hd for $5. Less than impressed with the rest of todays offerings though.

  • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

    So far this has been a great sale…..Keep them coming Microsoft.

  • mcmax3000

    I’m not sure what it says about me that I’m tempted to buy Farming Simulator.

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

      You know in a weird kinda way I’ve actually thought about getting it too. I mean how is different from any other sim.

      • Sledg

        My son really wants it. I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth the $15.

  • http://cheapbossattack.wordpress.com/ Cheap_Boss_Attack

    Darksiders 2 is showing at $14.99.. is that the price with 75% off? o.O

    • Chris Hofer

      Yes…because it’s normally $59.99.

      • http://cheapbossattack.wordpress.com/ Cheap_Boss_Attack

        I guess using Gamestop as a comparison at $49.99 new, that makes sense, I’ve just never actually seen Darksiders 2 go for full retail still. Hell, the limited edition is only $22 brand new on Amazon. Ah well, can’t win em all.

  • Bennijin

    Wow SoulCalibur II really launched at the wrong price didn’t it? £3.99’s about right.
    Of course it would be £3.39 if you hadn’t changed the pricing model to rip us off.

    Nothing here for me today although Brotherhood, SC2, Hell Yeah and Fruit Ninja are fairly well-priced. Lost Planet 2 as well arguably although it kind of sucks. Everything else about the same compared to retail really.

  • Roberto C.

    Please MS, you should consider seriously about lifting the 32gb limit. A HD of 320gb is not enough and collectors like us want to see all our games together in the “My Games” section. Many people are concerned about this issue, and we would appreciate an anwser. Thank you.

    • joevsyou

      they sued their their over priced memeroy card back in the day. Thats why your even lucky to get 32gb…

    • fear

      buy a ps3 or a ps4 simple solution

  • Rodney Copperbottom

    Hell Yeah?! Hell No! Please give me Sine Mora @ a discount.

  • James

    Please, put PES 14 in offer.

  • Diego Muñoz

    Is the F1 2013 “Classic Edition” the one that is being sold at a discount price today?????

    • José Netto

      it’s included… read description on marketplace for more details on content ;) it alson includes the two historic circuits, B. Hatch and another one I don’t rember which

      • Diego Muñoz

        Thanks!! Got it last night. It’s my first F1 game since the GameCube days… So excited!!!!!

  • ste88napoli

    Motogp 13 pleaseee !!!!

  • travis

    Was going to pick up a couple of these but turns out you can’t use Microsoft credit to purchase through the Microsoft Xbox website! I realize its only a few bucks, but I specifically bought Microsoft credit so that I could make small purchases like this without hitting my account or credit cards all the time. I will not be able to access my Xbox until the end of the week and by then these prices will not be available.

  • Ryan Davis

    Still waiting for Banjo…

    • AC130

    Is F1 2013 good for the price?

  • deadbox102

    MS, when are you going to catchup to Apple when it comes to payment options? I can use funds I have in my iTunes account when I make purchases through my phone and even see my balance before I make a selection. How long are you going to stay behind the curve?

  • マリオ

    I still play Darksiders II weekly after all this time. Finally got Soul Calibur 2 HD. For $5 dollars I wasn’t going to say no.
