  • Peter

    why is that surprising? probably systems they had in the back storeroom or returned ones. In any case pointless unless you need a controller saying day one on it. The day one achievement? i don’t believe you can redeem that one anymore.

  • Himanshu Bajaj

    I love XBOX ….but now i think i should buy the PS4 because of PS+ service as they offer nice and worthy deals

    • digitallife

      I’m seriously trying to trade my xbox one bro..this situation is just getting pathetic now. All i’m seeing from MS is promises and more promises and i’ll be damned if i’m waiting for post e3 for games to start coming out.

    • Professor Oak

      PS+ Rental, GwG keep forever… Deals are not that much different, when I hear about PS deals, I usually smell desperation

      • Brad

        Let’s see rent good games vs own bad games… or in most cases games we already bought years ago. Just like the majority of XBOX 360 owners I own most, if not all of the games for GWG. Even on this forum people are overwhelmingly disappointed with the titles each month. So much so, that MS announced that they are working to make it better. So shills … be quiet as we are being heard.

        The Bottom line is that Hard drives DO NOT last forever and since MS ignores our requests for larger external space, GWG is a fail when the HD dies and the 360 is no longer supported. So you WILL NOT own the game forever.

        At least with Sony I know up front I won’t own the game. There’s no hard feelings down the road. That comes much later with MS when I will have no way to play it once the harddrive dies and the service is ended. I’ve owned 5 XBOX 360′s since the launch and (knock on wood) this last one has been great. But if your only defense is that the games are owned you have no defense.

        • Professor Oak

          Here are my points.
          1. There alternate storage options, put files on flash drive, then transfer files to PC HDD for storage, you can move transfer from there.
          2. Last I checked, 360 support is not going anywhere anytime soon, as they had stated when they were announcing the Xbox One. They stated that both will be supported.
          3. I have had 2 Xbox 360 Slim Models, neither has broken, I just really liked the design of the Halo 4 Models
          4. HDD breaking, never heard about that before.
          5. You can buy more HDDs
          6. Old games != Bad Games

          If you know how to properly back up files, yes, you will have them forever.

          • Brad

            1. When you have over 300 gigs of games on your harddrive that is not a realistic or viable option. Especially when the competition (PS3) allows for larger internal and external HD storage. That’s a fail on many levels…

            2. MS has announced support for 360 for a few more years beyond that no. I’m sure if you Google it you will see the article. I

            4. ALL Hard Drives die. It’s just a matter of when. There are numerous posts (over 9 million on Bing) about them dying/failing.

            5. Only a fool would spend money on multiple TB harddrives to only be able to use 32 gigs of space. A fool or a shill.

            6. GWG = Bad games. You have your right to your opinion and I respect that, but again you are in the minority and need to be quiet while the rest of us argue for better games,.

            It’s not a matter of properly knowing how to back up games, it’s a matter of having the right tools. With MS they give you a hairbrush to pound in that nail instead of a hammer. As i’ve said before, just be quiet shill, as our voices are being heard and maybe one day soon we will finally get what we’ve been asking for.

          • Professor Oak

            1. It is always worth the time to back up data.

            2. Games for Windows Live is still running, Pretty sure Xbox 360 will be around for a while, especially when it uses the same Gold Service.

            5. “Only 32″ wow, I meant you can get more internal HDD for Xbox 360

            6. No they are not, well a few of them were, but most were good, just cause they are old doesn’t make them bad.

          • Brad

            2. MS announced they will support XBOX until 2016. I’m pretty sure you could have Googled that, but then you would have no point to argue.

            5. You mean purchase 3 $129 (each) – 320 Internal Hard drives. No thanks shill. Only a fool would do that.

            6. Like I said you are in the minority and need to be quiet while the rest of us argue for better games. Had MS not released a statement stating otherwise you would be correct. Since they did you are wrong. Bye!

          • Michael Burden

            How is he in the minority in regards to the QUALITY of the GwG offerings? Do you have ANY facts or statistics to back that up? Just because it is an older quality title does NOT mean everyone picked it up when released or even later – several of my friends just got a 360 last year and they had NONE of the games offered (and they enjoy the majority of them).

            Myself, I have owned the majority of the games offered but it would be very hard for Microsoft to offer a game that I hadn’t played or own on disc. There is a greater chance the Arcade titles being a new experience for me than the Games on Demand based one unless it is something obscure or just plain bad.

            That being said, Microsoft does still need to up the value on GwG, either by offering more games if they are older titles and newer ones to be more in line with what SONY is doing.

          • Brad

            Unless you own over 1,100 games it’s really not that hard to do … nice try though.

            But you couldn’t unless you had a 1,000 internal hard drives to store them all…

          • Michael Burden

            Considering that I have well over 300 games on disc as well as a good quantity of Games on Demand, yes it would be difficult for them to offer a quality, good selling game I did not already own or have an interest in – Sleeping Dogs has been the only one thus far that was not in my collection. And WTF point are you trying to make about hard drives – that makes absolutely no sense. Bigger hard drive space on the 360 is something I have constantly asked for.

            And who are you to tell someone to be quiet when they are actually a voice of reason? All you have done is attack other peoples opinion that differs from your own, claim you represent the majority (hint, you don’t by a along shot), call people names, and put forth your OPINION as fact. Is there still room for improvement? Yes, there is no doubt about that. But to call the games bad because they are older and YOU already played them is just wrong.

          • Brad

            Wow 300, that’s a lot but that still leaves over 800 titles that you don’t own.

            You are NOT the voice of reason on this topic. Not even close. This website is the official website for an employee of MS and for the most part, the comments are not positive regarding MS policy, sales, deals etc.. And not just here either, but also on the official forums and every gaming website. Even the new president of XB Division has directly spoken to it and wants to improve it.

            My opinion is shared by the majority of this community… that means it does matter more than yours. So again just be quiet shill, as our voices are being heard and maybe one day soon we will finally get what we’ve been asking for and just make sure to say thank you when it happens… and you’re welcome…

          • Michael Burden

            LOL, you really don’t have a clue do you. For one, there are only 617 games on demand – meaning about a 50% chance. Secondly, that 300+ games I have currently on disc in my collection does NOT include several Games on Demand I have bought or games which were rented, traded in, or borrowed from a friend. So in actuality the odds of them releasing something I do not or have not owned, played, or rented is very, very slim – and I can accept that because I understand why. I just hope it is something that is multiplayer I can put on my other 360 or a decent arcade title I have not bought or tried.

            You think the same, few people trolling this blog constantly with the same complaints and exaggerations represent the majority? Last time I checked, people are more likely to complain and rant online than those posting positively about something. Then you have the fanboys and trolls that live for this stuff and exaggerate or just plain out lie for reaction. So while there are complaints (some of which are valid), you can in no way say the majority of the community shares the same opinion of you. As an example, do you really think “Never Gonna Give You Up” was the most wanted DLC for Rockband by the community? No, but the group 4chan spammed the polling on Harmonix web site and it won. Same could be said about EA winning the Golden Poo award 2 years in a row – another example of fanboy hate which is in no way representative of the total community.

            And once again you resort to name calling – that is a real good way to get your point to be taken seriously! You think crying like a little baby is going to get you anywhere? Yes, there is room for improvement in the program and selections – a point I never denied. But that in no way means the games offered are bad just because they are “old”. It also means the majority of people may not have played all the games they have offered – as I pointed out several people have adopted the 360 just recently and not played the earlier titles. Also, those people aren’t hear complaining because they are enjoying something new to play for them. Long time users like myself (and you presumedly) are more likely to have owned or play these games – just don’t presume everyone has the same circumstances as you is my point.

            Now if you want to continue this conversation in a rational, civil manner I’m all game. Otherwise I don’t deal with immature children and am done with you.

          • maxy

            Hey man I love your way dealing with some immature kids like him! I adore you.

          • Professor Oak

            2. They said they will support Xbox 360 until 2016, claiming at least 100 more games being release, they said nothing about them shutting down the servers for Xbox Live for the Xbox 360, this is largely taken out of context, I did a search for when the live service will end and found nothing, your argument is invalid. By stop supporting, it generally means they will no longer produce or licence for the console. You own the digital Content, they cannot take that. You may not be able to get new digital content, but you should still be able to play with your friends and redownload games, they never stated otherwise. As long as people are paying for the servers, they should still run.

            5. If you know where to look, you can get the HDD’s Cheaper.

            6. Minority, hardly. They still sell new Xbox 360s to new costumers, who buy gold so they can play online. The fact that they gave out older games meant the newer customers could get them without having to worry about used. I see it all the time when I read support comments on twitter, newer owners you can tell by questions they ask.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        that is your soiled clothes. if you have a ps3 or even ps4 you would not be saying anything. someone who says rental in a derogatory way never had gamefly or rented from redbox. they would save hella money.

        • Professor Oak

          Used and Rentals hurt devs, I was fine with the pre owned game policies before the xbox one came out. Devs being able to set a small fee to play a pre owned game. Gamestop and Gamefly and others like them cried out with “we can’t make money with this model” so they were forced to change. I embraced the Idea. Honestly, I just wish they went the steam path and took out the disc drive and allowed retailers to sell currency and Digital game codes. Of course with a larger HDD and interchangeable. Puts competition at an even playing field, devs make money on every sale, and pre owned bs is out of the picture. Always on, prevents Piracy. Gamestop is really the hold back because they would refuse to carry it. They make so much money on pre owned sales it isn’t funny.

      • Bennijin

        Rent games you want to play, own games you don’t (or already have because they were on sale weeks before they went free).

        I don’t own a PS4 yet and I don’t have a Plus subscription yet but Microsoft are doing a better job pushing me in that direction than Sony ever did.

  • Indy

    Why Lego Indiana Jones 1 and 2 are not available in Poland? This games are not event present in the store!!

    • Jan Václavík

      Maybe some issue with local distributor? I dont think this is the right place to ask the question…

      • Indy

        Well, I was speaking about presence in the Xbox 360 online store (Games On Demand). So this is issue connected to Microsoft.

        • Professor Oak

          Ask Support on twitter https://twitter . com/XboxSupport, or the support on the xbox website http://support . xbox . com/en-US/?xr=shellnav, this is for general discussion

        • Jan Václavík

          I believe Microsoft in Poland and whoever distributes the game in Poland should have more say about availability of titles on polish online store than US guys like majornelson.

  • Jim Charette

    Awful deals again. PS4 is looking that much better

    • Ismokedthebanditwithaheadshot

      Looking? As someone who has both, it’s considerably better imo.

    • Brad

      Yeah Jim, PS= has been better for a long time when it comes to deals. Now that they are charging for online, Sony will be able to upgrade those servers and then there will be no reason to be on XBL. It’s amazing how 1 year can change things…

  • ZOMBI3

    If I owned a One I’d be pissed.

  • Resident Evil 4 June

    Resident Evil 4 for June. Up vote if you want RE4 for Games with Gold next month.

    • Bennijin

      No, I already have that game.

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        No No No! We all have that game already! How about RE 6?

        • Some guy

          At this point they might give Gears of war judgment and it’ll be a better horror game.
          RE6 is the michael bay of resident evil. The only good thing is co-op.
          And in case you ask, Operation Racoon city is worse.

          • Mr&Mrs Ninja

            True, but is that really bad? I thought the game was good. Resident Evil games haven’t been scary since RE3. Operation Racoon was trash and I don’t even count that as part of the series. If I wanted REAL horror I would classics like Silent Hill 2, Dead Space, maybe RE4, umm…well…yea you got a point.
            PS
            hey Major, if you’re reading this how about Skyrim, Fuse, Remember Me, Devil May Cry, Army of Two 2 or 3, a Naruto game, Gears Judgement (@Some guy)or maybe a Forza game as a GwG? You heard me when I said Sleeping Dogs and Hitman….

          • Some guy

            Well, it’s not exactly bad but it’s filled with on rail shooter parts, QTE(at least you can disable them), explosions, zombie with machine guns and bosses that just won’t die but the gameplay is great
            Mercenaries mode is pretty fun because of that.
            That said, I hate RE6, Sleeping Dogs and Hitman absolution so you might like it.

          • Mr&Mrs Ninja

            Mr. Ninja: Can’t please everyone… but I hear ya. We (me & the wifey) just love games. We play ALL types of games. And after Asura’s Wrath I’m all QTE’d out so I understand why you can’t stand that part of the game. But one genre of games I can’t stand is the copy and paste genre (I made that up) Madden, Street Fighter, NBA 2K, COD, etc.

          • Some guy

            Asura was one of the best game I played, didn’t mind the QTE because you knew they were everywhere and they gave you a good warm up time when they appeared(the circle thingy).
            In RE… well if you played one you know what I mean, walking down a path, QTE to dodge a boulder out of nowhere, have split second to do it and you die.
            On the plus side, since MS only give mainstream game I can continue to buy niche games without worries(Like Asura).

    • Jan Václavík

      I already have it and I dont want other gamers to suffer its poor controls.

  • Ismokedthebanditwithaheadshot

    WTF. Is this the deal of the week for Xbox one? Beyond rubbish.

  • Resident Evil 4 June

    Resident Evil 4 for June. Up vote if you want RE4 for Games with Gold next month..

      Enough, Just stop.

      • Professor Oak

        Also, if one knows how to get a moderator to get rid of someone who posts the same comment 4 times in a row, please let me know

  • Wolf

    I am starting to regret my Xbox One purchase. Gangnam style is your deal this week? Seriously?

    • Xhawk27

      Any current gen online service having deals on full price games?

      • Dylan

        Yes, the PS4 is already selling Wolfenstein: New Order for a discount.

        That’s right, a pre-order discount on digital goods, just like Steam.

  • Sknots

    At least it isnt Cod, Rockstar or Bioshock sale

    • Elan Gabriel

      There’s always next week… :)

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    a niche sale. hey why not give us max for free on x1? just a suggestion. i get so many free games from psn that it balances out the bad sales on xbox 360.

  • deadbox102

    Deal with Gold has become window shopping for me.

    • Bennijin

      And even the windows are overpriced.

  • Bennijin

    I sense a great disturbance in the force… behind these deals.

    The 360 deals just aren’t good enough to be interesting, I might have gotten the Hoth pack if that had been on sale Force Unleashed II isn’t even on the UK marketplace although I wouldn’t touch that with a very long lightsaber.

    And just great, no Xbox One deals again.

    • Xhawk27

      I don’t see any other console online service having deals on current gen full priced games. Yet you people complain when XBL doesn’t.

  • Peter

    yawn crummy deals that get easily beat elsewhere. Anyone who believes ms is listening is clearly delusional. Only reason they let up on always on is because of the massive s–tstorm that it raised up of outcry. This is the same ms which purposely insists on gimping the external drive limit so they could sell their own products. Same thing with the audio adapter so they could make 25 bucks off of gamers who want to use their already decent headsets.

    Ms doesn’t care and would bleed us if they could and that’s the honest truth. Them trying to put forth a facade of listening is a pathetic slap in our faces. History has shown otherwise as does their current ongoing attitude.

    • digitallife

      Solution..get gamefly…it’s what i’ve done. Already paid for xbox live for the year so I can’t stop that but i’m not putting any more cash in ms’s pockets beyond that. I’ll spend the year using bing rewards and gamefly.

      • ryder4life22187

        I guess it depends on where your shipping facility is for gamefly. I’m in AZ and the shipping place was in CA. I tried gamefly for 2 months and wasn’t worth it to me. Gamefly would send out the game on a monday and I would get the game on thursday afternoon around 5pm. So for me it wasn’t worth it as I could just use the cash to buy actual games and not feel compelled and rushed to finish them.

    • Some guy

      Pretty much, MS went to sh** a few years ago.
      I miss the time when they actually cared(or at least pretend to care)

  • skunk73

    why are we charged more than double what you yanks pay for digital content?????? it’s digital FFS!!!!!!!!!!!! $35 for lego star wars what a load of shite!!!!!!!

    • X360

      I agree! It shouldn’t be higher than the Physical copy ($3 at GameStop)

      • Michael Burden

        USED – not a valid comparison to digital. New retail price is pretty much the same, though digital should still be a smidge cheaper.

  • Guest

    You probably have a better chance saving 15% on car insurance with geico than waiting for Micro$oft to release a free game for XB1

    • Professor Oak

      Killer Instinct. *Drops Mic*

      • deadbox102

        A game where you have to purchase all the characters?

        • Bennijin

          The free version gives you one rotating character that changes intermittently, it’s a generous demo. The Combo Breaker pack is really not a big ask.

      • Peter

        KI ain’t going to happen its still selling at 40 for the complete premium pack and what 30 for the regular pack?. That one aint going to be free so you can kinda forget that At least not for a long while. Expect the stinkers already mentioned.

        • Professor Oak

          Game itself is still free

    • Soyou

      Phil Spencer answered it would be coming fairly soon!! :(

      • Ismokedthebanditwithaheadshot

        That seems to be the go to answer for everything with MS

        “It’s coming soon’”
        “we’ere listening to our customers”
        “we still care about games”

        Lies and more lies.

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        Expect Fighter Within & Lococycle in the first month. lol

        • Peter

          agreed same reason only a moron would bite on those ones even out of curiosity even though they do scream stinker from a mile away,

          My bet would more likely be placed on Halo Spartan its cheap right now and going down to the point where ms would give it away. Reason why i didn’t get it because i just know that or LC will be eventually given away

          • Mr&Mrs Ninja

            lol

      • Riddick Snipes

        What exactly has anyone from ms said since last e3 that hasn’t turned out to be completely the opposite. I still remember when major did an unboxing of the one and pointed out it comes with 4k HDMI cables. LOL!

        • Guest

          Don’t forget the “xbox logo” sticker – I’m sure he’ll be handing them out at E3 as a thank you! LOL

  • Axcalibur

    Well, these are some terrible Xbox One “deals”. And no sense in purchasing Xbox 360 games anymore since I can’t play them on my Xbox One.

    But I think my biggest frustration is the fact that Microsoft is churning out more content per week for Xbox 360 than Xbox One (and yes, I get that it’s likely more publisher choice… but I’m sure MS has at least some influence). If they would have been smart from day one and offered backward compatibility, I’m confident more people would buy the Xbox One and get actual use out of the Xbox One then they do now. I know I’m playing WAY more Wii U than Xbox One.

    One side note, I played a Bluray movie on my Xbox One for the first time this weekend – and it was complete garbage! Every 10 minutes, the screen would get all choppy. NEVER happened on my PS3, or TV. Could have been the disc, but that was brand new, factory sealed. Guess we’ll see how the next movie plays…

    • ryder4life22187

      That would make sense but what would MS do with all the 360′s that they can no longer sell if they offered BC on the XB1.

      • Axcalibur

        Well, they need to start focusing on the next generation. I know there is usually a transition period, but it really seems to be lasting longer than it should – which tells me they either launched the Xbox One too soon, or their not confident the Xbox One can be successful anytime soon.

        At any rate, as someone with limited shelf space, it would be nice to get rid of my 360, but still be able to play my 100+ 360 games on my new consoles. My Wii U plays Wii games. I know that Microsoft says they “can’t” do backward compatibility – but I’m pretty sure they just want to re-release games on the Xbox One to earn another sale. First example is Minecraft. I have no idea why anyone would find any enjoyment from Minecraft – but it’s popular nonetheless. And I bet the number of Xbox One users who own the 360 version and still purchase the Xbox One version will be quite high – which is ashame, because that’ll simply prove to Microsoft that big games can simply be re-sold again and again.

  • Stephen Nowak

    I’m just happy my avatar got a new shirt to wear from this sale.

    Microsoft still needs to put Hard Corps and R Type Dimensions on sale. Only reason I haven’t paid full price for these games is I have out dated versions on retro systems, which still RULE.

  • Jon Taylor

    This is just pitiful, Microsoft you’re not doing yourself any favours here, you’re pushing people towards Playstation+ where at the minute….all the cool kids are!
    You need to give more people reasons to invest their money in you…not push them away. Can you not see it?? Throw out some freebies for GODS SAKE

  • JackPackage

    My immediate response to this sale was positive, until I saw that the games were STILL between £7.50-£9.99 and that is just not ENOUGH of a discount for me to consider buying an old, digital only copy of a game I didn’t want enough to buy at full price.

    I would have basically bought all of the games, if they were priced at the £3.74 price point and I have to imagine that other people would do the same.

    There are LITERALLY hundreds of old games on Xbox Live that just aren’t going to sell at full price, you lower the price to the £3.74/$4.99 price point and I have to imagine that the sales go up considerably as the game becomes more appealing, right?

    Can somebody please explain why these companies SEEM to be so clueless? I mean, digital copies cost them an minimally, if at all. Why not sell 1000 copies priced at £3.74 rather than continually having these games sitting up there, maybe once in a blue moon ripping off the odd customer that pays £14.99-£49.99 for them? It benefits both customer and company, right?

    I’m not a cheap skate by any means, I buy a large amount of new games at full price but there are plenty of games that I’m only willing to spend a minimal amount on because they are either old or average.

    I would have bought: Lego Star Wars X2, The Force Unleashed X2 and Lego Indiana Jones X2, if they had been priced at £3.74/$4.99. That is £22.44/$29.94 in the pocket of Microsoft and the developer. At the ‘discount’ price they are currently set at, I will buy none of them and/or look elsewhere for my purchases.

    We are vilified by the industry for supporting used games, yet the industry is continually PUSHING us to support the used game market.

    Microsoft, you are currently UTTERLY CLUELESS. Give me a 1 month trial run at running a consumer friendly Official Xbox blog, one month and you don’t have to pay me, if I do a good job, you employ me at a fair wage, if I do a poor job, you can block my IP address from your services FOREVER.

    What is there to lose? It would be good publicity and I would love to earn a living ACTUALLY COMMUNICATING and LISTENING to the good people in the comments.

      Not clueless sometimes playing ignorant and stupid is the best way to go. MS aways starts these “sales” the same way. Count the original retail price and cut from there, instead of what the current market value is and adjust down accordingly

      Most of their sales end up at what the current market value is. Hence thes sales always match up near the price of getting a hardcopy does. At or near what it costs now. Rarely do you see drastic price cuts. Maybe on dlc/arcade titles but again there is no competition and the marketplace is a monopoly.

    @disqus_5X9bG8MD99:disqus Hey Brad why don’t you shut your mouth and go to a playstation site if you like that too much? And no you have no right to tell people to be quiet while they like the games are offered to us.

    • Shakeslikecrazy

      He’s just one of the many nolifer PS trolls on this site. Just ignore and flag so MN removes them. Having critique here is fine, but the way he does it and his post history surely makes him look like another pathetic PS fanboy.

  • Mr&Mrs Ninja

    How do you get the avatar thing-a-ma-jig

    • Shakeslikecrazy

      “Free Avatar Item” behind the Deals with Gold tile on the Dash. I hope they do more of these. It’s been a long time since there were premium themes or avatar items like this.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      It’s a shirt for the avatar that I’ll probably never wear but I got it. Only way is you have to find it on the adds for the sales on the dashboard.

      • Professor Oak

        I am gunna wear it at lest till the 4th has passed, maybe longer if I get laze and don’t change my avatar

  • Peter

    cheapassgamer(dot)com check the forums section under free stuff thread there under free xbox live marketplace stuff

    would provide direct link but my posts keep getting deleted. sorry

    • Shakeslikecrazy

      Yes, URL posts remain in the moderation queue (not deleted) until MN confirms them, but posting them like that then there’s no problem.

    yeah weird that ms doesn’t provide a direct link to that page but to the other stuff

    No Games With Gold announcement for May yet and Phil Spencer essentially said he was mothballing the program? Not a good sign at all.

    • Michael Burden

      You have proof of this outrageous statement? If not, kindly take your lies and trolling elsewhere.

      • Some Person

        “The Games With Gold program on Xbox 360 has been successful for us. It’s been part of the value people see in [Xbox Live] Gold, something we recognize that isn’t on Xbox One that isn’t there today. We haven’t announced a plan, but people should understand that we understand the expectation that people have around what the value on Xbox One Gold should be. It might not look exactly the way things have looked in the past, but the recognition that that form of content and that perk for being a Gold subscriber is important to people, something we definitely hear.” – Microsoft’s Phil Spencer

        Take a look at that last sentence starting with “It might not look…”

        • Peter

          still not seeing the implication am i blind or dense. Thought the program was a huge success for ms. Where do you see them mothballing this program? people are constantly clamoring for the x1 program to start.

        • Michael Burden

          Yet I fail to see how you can draw that conclusion from that quote in any way, shape or form. That quote in no way states or implies the promotion is going to be cancelled, only that it will be changing and probably for the better based on every other quote Spencer has said. That can even be inferred from this quote – more so than your warped interpretation that this somehow is implying the demise of the program.

        • Axcalibur

          Yeah, I see what you’re saying – definitely a bit ominous.

          Could mean only 1 free Xbox One game per month, instead of 2 (as we see on Xbox 360).

          Could mean you only “rent” the games like on Playstation Plus.

          Could mean special weekends where you can play a certain game for as long as you want – then can purchase it for a discounted price at the end of the weekend (this wouldn’t be bad, especially for games that lack demos).

          At any rate, Microsoft raised their own bar by introducing Games With Gold – backtracking now would depreciate the expected value of the Xbox Live Gold membership, and I just can’t see them doing that – especially considering they’re currently sitting second to Sony. And considering Sony’s offerings, their success (in my opinion) is probably very much attributed to their Playstation Plus program.

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja

        HA!

    • Shakeslikecrazy

      Upvoting your own ridiculous claims. Pathetic.

    • Mr&Mrs Ninja

      YEA…riiiiight…

  • John Smith

    Yeah, Gangnam Style! Cause we’re all 12 year olds i guess.

    • Michael Burden

      If they play Just Dance games, there is a high likelihood they may be.

  • Riddick Snipes

    Australian prices
    Indy 1 is $34.95
    Indy 2 is $14.95
    Lego star wars complete is $34.95
    The star wars force unleashed aren’t even there for download but the dlc is. These r the reduced prices.
    What another shocking week of sales.

  • Sanpei

    garbage….

  • Baron van Dedem

    Who the hell buys music on a gameconsole?

    • Michael Burden

      This are song add-ons FOR A GAME – specifically for Rocksmith and Just Dance 4. Some people like to play the music THEY like in a game and it is nice that there are options to do so and not be stuck with what they give you on disc.

  • King

    Ah, This kind of a sh*tty sale. The First Force Unleashed was nice though. Sequel, not so much.
