Arcade, Marketplace, Xbox 360 Games On Demand By Jeff Rubenstein

  • Cookiehead

    Another sub par day. It’s really ashame since the first day started off so promising. Here’s hoping tomorrow is better.

    • AWS0M0

      Sometimes they have ladies panties on sale at Target.
      I don’t complain about it because I’m not interested.
      If your patient you might find something that fits.

      • Cookiehead

        If no one complained nothing would improve.

      • usrev

        the difference is, target will frequently have stuff worth buying when xbox only has a decent sale once every few months. this sale isn’t as bad as the other ones but jeez how many more times will fallout 3 dlc be on sale.

      • Ross Kemp

        I like ladies panties the same as I like my games…….USED .

  • Ryan Davis

    Still waiting for Banjo and the rest of the ME3 DLC. Make it happen, Microsoft.

    • xbox1rules23

      i have all the ME 3 dlc, all through deals. if you’ve had Live for the past year then you should have seen them. the gaps between ME3 dlc sale were large though. like citadel which was on sale in december… i think there was one on sale in october too, and before that in the summer. Should have stayed on the ball with cheapness deals like me bro

      • Ryan Davis

        Microsoft is terrible about discoverability of their sales. I’ve been looking for sales on ME3 DLC for the past year and a half or so. I’m a frequent user of GameFAQs and one of the main posters on the Xbox 360 board there. I check Major Nelson’s blog pretty regularly. The fact that somebody like me could have missed these sales speaks to Microsoft’s inability to properly market them.

    • http://matthewkenealy.wordpress.com/ Matthew Kenealy

      I wish they’d put all EA DLC on sale. There is so much of it I want to buy and full price is too much for my bank account.

  • pie

    yucky

  • Dylan Davis

    Woo! I can finally get L4D. Two games I would like to see however on sale are the Viva Pinata games, I’ve wanted to get them but they do seem a bit over priced.

    • pie

      Yes to Viva Piñata!

      • AC130

        Viva to Viva Pinata.

    • Adrian Cajili

      Trouble in Paradise pls!

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

      Viva Pinata is highly underrated. If it’s not included on one of these days, you should really still consider getting it. Trouble in Paradise is one of my favorite 360 games. It’s worth the $20 – $30.

  • pie

    I’m hoping these past two days were just the setup for an incredible finish.

    • fear

      keep dreaming this is MS you talking about not PS

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

    Slightly better than yesterday. I may pick up Peace Walker.
    I still want Binary Domain, Metal Gear Rising, or Resident Evil 4 included in this weekly deal. At least one of those games. Come on, Microsoft!

    • http://www.allthatgamingstuff.com/ JasonGW

      I almost bought binary domain, but then I got it free on PS+ :)

      • Guest

        Cool. I’d rather buy it, though. I don’t play my PS3 much.

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

          Deleted my comment on accident.

        • http://www.allthatgamingstuff.com/ JasonGW

          You’d rather buy it than get it free? Lol.

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

            Because everyone has PS+, right? I don’t. So it wouldn’t necessarily be free for me.

            Plus, I don’t like the PS3 as much. I hate the controller.

          • http://www.allthatgamingstuff.com/ JasonGW

            PS3 is a great system (not quite as good as the Xbox 360, of course), and although I don’t like the Dual Shock 3 as much as the 360 controller, it’s perfectly serviceable. And you should absolutely have PS+, it’s the single best deal in console gaming! :).

  • http://www.thinkcomputers.org/ Jack

    Darksiders is a great game. If anyone has been on the fence, it is definitely worth $5.

  • ASA

    Not as good as day 1… But skyrim for 10 is legit

  • AC130

    Are Darksiders and Left 4 Dead good at those prices?

    • Dylan Davis

      Both $5 yes. Especially L4D if you can find friends online to play with, the game is a blast. Darksiders is a pretty good game, I 100% it but I don’t think it is one of my favorite game, it is a decent game though.

      • AC130

        Ok I may just get Left 4 Dead then thanks.

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

      Yes. L4D is really fun online.

    • Some guy

      Just saying, in L4D your characters are made of glue so expect to get stuck a lot. If you stop moving for no reason it’s because a zombie spawned in your back.

  • 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? You have a good sale going on, but come on with the payment options.

    • http://socialsteak.com/ Stephen Robinson

      Major credit cards and PayPal. What else do you need?

      • Manixion

        your forgetting debit cards and gift cards :) all are viable options

      • joevsyou

        i guess dude want some DNA scanner that automatically linked to his life force or something

        • deadbox102

          Please read and comprehend before making a stupid remark.

      • http://www.allthatgamingstuff.com/ JasonGW

        It’d be nice if I could use my XBOX CREDIT via the Xbox website, for one.

        • deadbox102

          Well, at least one person gets it.

        • Blastergamer

          I could use Xbox MSP to buy stuff on Xbox website before the MSP to local currency transaction, but after it I couldn’t anymore, and it’s a shame! You cannot even purchase free stuff from there anymore, which makes absolute nonsense!

      • deadbox102

        I often receive Microsoft cards as gifts. As a result, I have a good amount of funds in my Microsoft account. Unlike iTunes, I can’t make purchases from my phone using those funds while taking a break at work. Being as busy as I am I often don’t touch my console before the weekend. I miss many of these one day sales because of this.

  • Hates bad writers.

    Hey look, Skyrim, again. Come on guys, such a wicked first day, don’t let that be the end of it.

  • Nathan Beale

    Bought Bejeweled for the wife, I may never be able to use the 360 again. XD

  • fear

    a other day down the drain… wallet save on my Xbox but not on my PS

  • Silas

    Grabbed Skyrim for the good price.

    Pretty much, at this point, just stocking up on the single player games that I’ll want to play again in 5+ years.

    Here’s looking back at you, Chrono Trigger.

  • Benjamin

    I can’t bring myself to get Left 4 Dead despite the good ratings, I’m so tired of zombie games. Please, enough with the zombies in the new generation of games.

    • ElektroDragon

      I said this 2 years ago. :)

  • joevsyou

    IF i still had my 360 i would most likely grabbed that MGS for $5 has i never played any of them.

  • ElektroDragon

    Old and weak.

  • http://matthewkenealy.wordpress.com/ Matthew Kenealy

    These are decent deals. Nice to see Fifa getting a discount.

    • Blastergamer

      that game should be permanent 10$. Not worth 60$ bucks, neither 30$.

      • http://matthewkenealy.wordpress.com/ Matthew Kenealy

        Not really. The game is really enjoyable and has a lot of great content.

        • Damian W

          guess what FIFA 2013 will as enjoyable as FIFA 2020. Nothing will change. FIFA has been the same for years, and they keep asking for this recooked burger 60 bucks each year. This games is worth max 20. It is so ridiculous they make a new game every year, where they basically change manu and transfer/change names. You really want to pay 60 for an update or even 30?

          • http://matthewkenealy.wordpress.com/ Matthew Kenealy

            I didn’t buy it. My brother did. And the last version we bought was 10. Buying any game yearly is pointless.

  • King

    This bunch is kind of weak…I’m mad I missed Dante’s Inferno for $4 bucks -_-.

    • AC130

      Me too more so about Bastion :(

      • King

        = = oddly enough bought that and Soul Calibur II before they went on sale…man, Bastion was well worth it though.

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

    Peace walker is ok, but don’t think about beating it without co-op

  • イサム オミナエ

    Recicled deals again!

  • King

    Darksiders 1 is Decent, Darksiders 2 is a hell of an improvements, recommend grabbing them both.

  • Cookiehead

    Hey Larry, try to push for getting the Castlevania games and their DLC on sale. Some Capcom fighters would be nice as well. Though my number 1 most wanted is Deathsmiles 2. If you see this, leave a note in the suggestion box for me man. Thanks.

  • Please Clarify

    Please let us know when MS is going to lift the artificial 32 GB limitation on USB storage media! My current lack of storage space has caused me to limit my purchases. This cannot make business sense for Microsoft, either.

    But thanks for the sale anyway, there are some good deals to be found!

    • AC130

      I feel like being generous today and giving you a quick tip to save HDD space.
      Buy the game.
      Once the download starts cancel it.
      Go to your download history under My Account and there it sits.
      Now finish some games collecting dust so you can delete them.
      PROFIT.

      • Please Clarify

        Thanks, but that doesn’t do much good when Microsoft pulls the plug from the X360 servers, just as they did with the original Xbox.

        And will do in July with the Games for Windows servers.

        • Matthew Swiss

          They will not shut down the servers for xbox 360 for a while, they stated when they were going to continue support for xbox 360 along with the one.

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

            The 360 live service is shutting down in less than 3 years. This introduces 2 problems.

            1. If you didnt download your purchases prior to cut off you’ve lost them forever.
            2. If your 360 goes bang, you’ve lost everything since you will no longer be able to perform a licence transfer to a replacement console or sign into live to use them under your gamertag.

        • AC130

          July wasn’t confirmed by Microsoft so just rumours. :) Had a good point until that part.

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

        Nice tip however its an interim fix not a solution. Your solution works for now. The problem is committing money to a digital library without the space to store the library locally. A problem that is unavoidable when the 360 service is ceased.

        • AC130

          I know but it still should not stop you from making purchases I would think M$ would be kind enough to lift limits from external hard drives so we can download more stuff.

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

            I hope so. In reality, they’ll probably offer an 360 service similar to that of Playstation Now and our digital purchases will carry over to the XB1 and beyond. So long as they give us plenty of warning we’ll be able to download purchased content before the big switch off. Once the 360 service is no longer available there are ‘alternative ways’ to remove the limitations.

    • Matthew Swiss

      It makes sense, they are supporting their most recent version of the xbox 360, the slim, whose hard drives are about 250 gb storage. Old fat models are ones that are no longer in production and because of this, they do not care for those who have the old model. My suggestion would be to suck it up and get a slim
      slim

  • TheCalmWolf

    Forza4 preferably with all DLC.. come on MS.. you could easily do this.. youre the producer.. and i would love a Halo Bundle aswell..

    • AC130

      90% off all the way. :) Halo Reach Noble Map Pack too :)

    • Blastergamer

      Forza 4 is not on demand, however Horizon is. Yes, I’d like the VIP pass discounted, I still remeber when I bought Forza 3 VIP pack just for 1 buck, which given me 5 cars, more storefront storage, and best of all, DOZENS of gifted cars without the need to buy with in-game credits!

      • AC130

        :( That was just before they stripped it from the marketplace.

  • usrev

    Peace walker might be a good buy… If i have unused money I might get bejeweled though, not like I need MS money anymore.

  • dibils

    lol just yesrerday someone in comments said why dont we get any offers for FIFA and PES… well FIFA is on offer now

  • http://gh.linkedin.com/pub/kenneth-yaw-agyeman-badu/1b/351/482 Kenzibit

    Please add #PAYDAY_2 to ultimate games sales. Really want it but too expensive for me currently. Help me by adding it to the games sales please

    • Does Not Equal

      It’s been on sale once or twice already. People get upset if games are put up too often (e.g. Bioshocks, GTAs, RDD).

      • http://gh.linkedin.com/pub/kenneth-yaw-agyeman-badu/1b/351/482 Kenzibit

        Ooh really? Never seen it on sale…maybe was too busy then. But that’s the game I really feel like playing now…just expensive for me currently and just wish the price was down a little.

        • Does Not Equal

          Fortunately for you, it’s on sale now.

          • http://gh.linkedin.com/pub/kenneth-yaw-agyeman-badu/1b/351/482 Kenzibit

            yeaaahhh…just saw it. Damn glad and I just bought it.hahaha Major really did answer me with this. Aww mehn…this game has been on my radar for some time now and very glad for Major and Xbox adding it to the sales. Thank God :)

  • IRAcuario

    Please Major Nelson, I’m waiting for any of these games:

    Call of Duty: Black Ops I
    Call of Duty: Black Ops II
    Mass Effect 2
    Mass Effect 3
    Syndicate
    Assasins Creed 1

    Splinter Cell Blacklist
    Ghost Recon Future Soldier
    Gears of War: Judgment
    FUSE
    Tomb Raider
    Halo: Spartan Assault
    BioShock Infinite
    Need for Speed Rivals

    • James

      You can buy a lot of those games on gamefly used for less than $15.

    • AC130

      Ghost Recon FS was on sale during Christmas.
      GoW Judgement also Christmas sale.
      Halo Spartan Assault just released doubt it will be on sale
      Tomb Raider has seen multiple sales; one last Christmas
      Blops was on sale last year as well
      Bioshock Infinite appeared during the Christmas sale
      NFS Rivals just released doubt it will be on sale same with Blacklist

      Just wondering did you somehow miss the 2 week long Christmas sale?

      • ryder4life22187

        Actually NFS Rivals was on sale near the end of January and the sale ended on Feb 3 during the EA publisher sale they had Rivals at 50% off.

    • http://matthewkenealy.wordpress.com/ Matthew Kenealy

      Most of those games need to be added to XBL on Demand before they can be discounted.

      • AC130

        That to

      • Superman64

        Most of them are on GoD…soooo yeah.

    • The Floundering Man

      Tomb Raider will be on tomorrow’s sale from the looks of it.

  • trickbfc1988

    Dark souls again please I missed it last time

    • AC130

      Which last time? The 4th or 5th time?

  • Wicker Man

    Hmm, lots of Games on Demand again. Was hoping for more Arcade games than what’s been appearing in these daily specials so far.

  • Mitah

    Forza 4 would be nice for the sale (though I doubt it will show). I wouldn’t mind seeing Tropico 4 or Dirt 1; those games haven’t ever gone on sale, and are still $30 besides being years old.

    • Blastergamer

      forza 4 is not on-demand, but you can get it pretty cheap with 20$ in stores with an additional DLC disc.

      • Mitah

        Wow. I always forget about that. I’ve had it in my Amazon cart forever now, but have wanted the DLC to go on sale before buying it.

  • dools

    What with the mods on this site?I posted a comment simply pointing out that the wrong Left 4 Dead game was listed on the Xbox website here in Ireland and it gets deleted.What gives?

    • King

      You Offended the Mighty Microsoft.

      • dools

        This site is constantly filled with people criticizing and insulting both MS and Major Nelson but my post politely pointing out a simple mistake is considered offensive and gets deleted?

        Makes sense…

        • King

          lmao, and they down voted your comments, what the hell lol.
          I don’t know man, that’s the Internet for you.

  • Kieran

    I don’t know why Microsoft doesn’t port some of their existing franchises to x box 1. The x box 1 has not lot of games at the moment and i’d pay for digital download of Gears 3 on x box 1., perhaps Halo too.

    It would help ship more consoles because i know lot of people who still play Gears on 360 and have not yet bought an x box 1. They might get one just to play Gears on x box 1.

    I don’t see whats wrong with porting x box owned games to their new console. People still play halo, gears and fable.

    • King

      It’s kind of lazy really, like the Port of tomb raider to X1/P4. but I see what your saying. to me it’d be saying, we have no games,port over our older AAA titles.
      you have another Halo in the works, which I don’t care about. Bungie is gone sadface & a new fable coming, so at least they will continue the series people enjoyed. in due time ,maybe there might be a port…but I doubt it now.

      • Kieran

        Tomb raider is a new game. It was just a port really of the new game on 360. I don’t see anything wrong with that personally.

        Since Gears and Halo are owned by Microsoft and they want to maintain a community going into the next Halo and Gears.

        Best way to do this port the best Halo and Gear game (Gears 3 preferably) to x box 1, its gets people interested in the game before the new ones launch.

        It also allows more development time for new Gears and Halo, because fans can play their fan game on their new console, while they wait.

  • Kieran

    Larry you posted a report from Eurogamer were he admits been wrong about Titanfall. Its not a bad game, but the bots been part of the mutiplayer experience, has divided the community.

    Least half do not like the low player count of 6vs6 and this may hamper sales. I’ll be still getting it, but i didn’t not like the bots at all. I think its ruins the multiplayer.

    • AC130

      Can anyone who played the beta say how the AI is; didn’t see much about them?

      • evilfangs .

        Useless, they stand still doing nothing.

  • Guest

    prototype 2??

  • http://twitter.com/dat_gap_doe KaosTheory

    All of these titles should be $10 or less to begin with and then 75% off that. Most of the games that have been on sale are VERY old.

  • Rhys Stedman

    Borderland 2 would make me want to buy a game from the sale
    Or diablo 3

  • Revoredo

    Those games were all on sale a couple weeks ago.

    • Rhys Stedman

      They could do them still

      • Revoredo

        Then people would be complaining that the same games were on sale all the time.

    • effectblob

      when was prototype 2 last on sale??

  • Rhys Stedman

    Borderlands 2 please it would make my day

    • Matthew Swiss

      I don’t even want to tell you how many times Borderlands 2 has been on sale. I hope it doesn’t again unless it is the season pass 75% off.

    • マリオ

      BL2 is only $10 now.

      • Rhys Stedman

        From where?

      • Rhys Stedman

        Where from

      • effectblob

        On the store it’s 20!

  • Ross Kemp

    I was going to go upstairs to my Xbox and buy SkyRim , but I took a arrow to the knee and was unable to do so :(

  • effectblob

    the darkness 2

  • King

    You missed Hitman Absolution & Borderlands 2 a few weeks back friend. it was like…$7-10 for Hitman
    dude how’d you miss Borderlands 2? That game went on sale so many times last year. you should be able to pick up a GOTY edition now for about $30 with all DLC, not bad.

  • Murillo Medeiros

    Castle Crushers, Yugioh and 30 half minute hero to complete arcade collection *–*

  • Matthew Swiss

    Just got Darksiders, been wanting to try it for a while. Also, thanks Microsoft, I’m only about 90 gb away from filling my 320 gb hard drive on my halo 4 console. Still need Halo Wars and Halo Spartan Assault

  • Murillo Medeiros

    Castle crushers, yugioh, 30 half minute hero to complete my arcade collection

  • http://photovoltaik.bandcamp.com/ Ujn Hunter

    The best Metal Gear game for less than $5? I’d be so on that if I didn’t already own 5 different copies of it in various formats…

  • Legion

    Nothing in here for me today, but it’s cool seeing AAA titles on sale. As Microsoft pushes for steeper and steeper sales, my intrigue in going digital increases.

    Make sure we can always add big hard drives Microsoft, we want to maintain these libraries!

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

    Just Left For Dead and Bejeweled for me today. Any chance you can put the associated DLC for all the offer games on offer too?

  • Tony Batista

    Where the promotion of Injustice in LIVE BR? LIVE US: $39,99=R$98,96, LIVE BR, Injustice R$129,90 O_O.And is not only Injustice, Resident Evil 6, LIVE US: $19,99=R$49,38, LIVE BR: R$79,00 and Resident Evil Revelations $39,99=R$98,87, LIVE BR: R$159,00. Where the promotion of Sonic All Star Racing Transformed, the game is of 2012.

    • Vinícius Nunes Menti

      Your dollar quotation is incorrect. For most games its better to buy it here in Brazil. Only the last one is more expensive here.
