  • Tanner

    Thank you. I can’t wait to buy none of these.

    • Gary Eller

      Agreed -These sales are not really impressive so far.

      • Tanner

    • theREALmaxy

      SONY PONIES ALERTS

  • Gary Eller

    Why no sales for the xbox one owners?

    • theREALmaxy

      SHUT UP SONY PONIES GO TO PLAYSTATION BLOG WE LOVE MICROSOFT HERE!!

      • Gary Eller

        Did your mother drop you on your head? I own a one ( a a 360 and a ps3 and ps4) I wanted to know why the people that got a one are being shafted. The only troll here …is you.

        • theREALmaxy

          IF YOU LOVE MCIROSOFT YOULL PAY FULL PRICE AND SHUT YOUR STUPID FRAKIN MOUTH! IF U DONT LOVE MICROSOFT GET OFF THE BLOCK!

          • Gary Eller

            Are you so pathetic that you actually like your own comment…and then log in as a guest to like it a second time?

            To be frank here…I don’t recall ” love the corporation unconditionally or go away” existing. Nor do I really care for unintelligible all cap typing troglodytes that troll Major Nelsons blog because they lack a life (to be read ” you”) So …how about you **** off until you have something other than flagpole massaging to do.

          • SilverDrake20

            How exactly are Xbox One owners being shafted? If I recall, the 360 didn’t have sales like this early on in its life cycle and weekly sales were just implemented about 4-5 years? ago. Either way, you’re far from being “shafted” lol. These entitled folk I tell you..

          • Synklare

            Just because you criticized him for liking his own post, I thought I’d help him out and give him a +1

            You know, make him feel better about himself.

        • Ross Kemp

          He is making fun of a massive MS pony from this blog .

  • Professor Oak

    Not Impressed, unless anyone has recommendations

    • theREALmaxy

      WRASTLING!!!!!!!!! WHO DONT LOVE WRASTLING!?!

    • DyingRomanGaming

      Most of it is pretty bad for today. They couldn’t even put the DLC for Dragon Age 2 on sale.

  • Ross Kemp

    Batman Black gate , maybe if it were at $5 – anything higher is daylight robbery .

    • stamps79

      .

      • Some Person

        No, at 50% off it’s $10…

      • Ross Kemp

        Well edited .

  • Harold Rivera

    Arcania cant be downloaded avoid it you will get mad trying to download it

    • theREALmaxy

      THATS YOUR OPINIONE!

      • Ross Kemp

        That’s his ” onion ” ????……….mmmmmm onions .

        • Some Person

          Damn man, now I want to eat some dead cow that’s still quite bloody on the inside.

  • theREALmaxy

    OMG!!!!!!!! MAJOR REALIST MOST REAL O-M-FRAKKIN-G!!!!!11!!!!!!ELEVENTY!!!!!!!!1111!! I LOVE YOU LIEUTENTANT NELSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU PHUL SPANCER!!!!!!!! MICROSOFT IS THE BESTEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WAS GOING TO BUY HALO 4 FOR $7 BUT IM DEFINITELY BUY IT FOR $15

    • Shawn Sigurdson

      Lieutenant Nelson? I thought he would have been promoted to Colonel by now.

      • theREALmaxy

        STUPID SONY POINIES! DONT MAKE FUN OF MICROSOFT ON XBOX BLOCK!

        • Shawn Sigurdson

          lol :P

  • Some Person

    I repeat: Today’s sale is rubbish; repeats, over-priced, or for the mentally handicapped (wrestling). I applaud Microsoft for finally putting Halo 4 at a more acceptable price but I’m looking at it for $6.22 on Amazon right now. If you’re not actually going to compete then don’t mislead your loyal consumers with these so-called “sales.”

    • theREALmaxy

      NOONE CARE WHAT YOU THINK!!!!!! GO PLAY YOUR PLAYSTATION TROLL!

      • Gary Eller

        I care what he thinks…and what you think.

    • Vince

      yea microsoft cocme on man come on man. just repeated myself.

    • Michael Burden

      No it isn’t, at least not anymore. Plus that was a used copy that you had to probably pay at least $5 in shipping. The cheapest USED copy is $10 w/ free shipping, but only acceptable condition. Cheapest new copy is $16.49 which does have free shipping.

      • Some Person

        Ebay, $6.50, four copies all brand new with free shipping.

        • Michael Burden

          LMAO – like ANY retailer is going to attempt to match an individual selling on eBay (or Amazon for that matter). That is as asinine as expecting them to match the price of used games.

          Also thet eBay listings you are referencing are AUCTIONS that have not ended yet, so that is not necessarily the price it will sell at. There are no Buy It Now options at that price (lowest one is about $13 on sale).

          Care to try again?

  • Silas

    Is W2K14 your guys’ go-to for sales? It’s dropped 6-7 times in less than a year.

    After yesterday, I was expecting that this might actually be a promising week… after today, though, I’ve realized the err of my ways.

    • theREALmaxy

      EVERY1 LOVE WRASTLING!!!!

  • BooBee

    I almost went to buy Halo 4 but then realized GameStop has it used for $10. Shoot those $5 I save will buy me a sandwich.

    • theREALmaxy

      OR U GIVE MICROSOFT THE 5 AND LET THEM NO U LOVE THEM!

    • Ross Kemp

      You want a sandwich , I will make you a MS pony sandwich. ………here Maxy .

  • JD2014

    Def passing on Halo4, if it was $10 I’d def buy, at $15…no thanks. Not when I can go to gamestop and get it for $10.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      I’ll give you $5 if that is so important. I don’t like any of the Halo games so I’m not interested but if you want it for $10 I’ll give you the extra fin.

  • GmailIsDown

    this sucks. get some Xbox One deals.

    • Bob G

      There are no more Xbox One deals for this week other than the ones listed yesterday.

      • GmailIsDown

        :(

    • theREALmaxy

      QUIT COMPLAINING AND DEAL WITH IT!

    • Gary Eller

      That is what I am talking about…something for those of us that got on from the first day(s) (like myself)

  • Chumis

    Hope become something for me in the next days, anyway cool prices for silvers.
    Dishonored added.

    • SilverDrake20

      Dishonored GOTY is actually $15 at Gamestop now for those interested in that.

      • disqus_pTwbDmyYvw

        Uh, no it’s not?

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

    ArcaniA can be purchased from Poundland for anyone interested in buying it in the UK.

    • JackPackage

      Is that true? That’s so bizarre, I almost HAVE to buy it at that price. If I walk past a Pound Land and remember, I’m going to pick it up purely for the hell of it.

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

        Yes, they’ve had various games in over the last few weeks including a few games for other platforms. Worth a purchase for the replacement case alone.

        • JackPackage

          That’s a quote for the back cover for sure.

          Arcania ‘worth a purchase for the replacement case alone’ – Kevin Fell.

          Thanks for the tip-off. I’ll have to check in there every so often, didn’t even know they sold games.

  • AC130

    And….
    Nothing.

  • maxy

    Halo 4 and WWE 2k14 for me. Thanks you again MS. :)))

    • theREALmaxy

      THANK YOU AGAIN MICROSOFT FOR TAKING DOUBLE THE RETAIL COST FROM ME!!!!!! I LOVE YOU SOOOOO MUCH! MARAGE ME?!?

      • Professor Oak

        Seriously. Did your parents pay no attention to you?

        • theREALmaxy

          mY PARENTS LOVE ME!!!! AND I LOVE MICROSOFT!!!!

          • Professor Oak

            Then stop pretending to be someone else on the forums to get attention

    • Professor Oak

      You might as well pick up the War Games Map pass at 50% as well. It is well worth it. Had Halo 4 since Day One. Got both the Console and Limited Edition game.

      • maxy

        Thank you mate. I will buy it. Thanks for reminding me that the DLC of it are on sale.

        • Professor Oak

          Haven’t played it in a while, usually got top of team. Had games where I would Carry my team with half of the kills. Not as good as I once was though. To many games to play, to little time for Halo

          • maxy

            Yeah I feel you. When you have a big backlog of games you have no time for games we enjoy the most.

          • Ross Kemp

            Untill you took a arrow to the knee .

  • ElektroDragon

    You’ve been trouncing PSN on both sales and content this summer. This is how you do it! Too bad you were asleep at the wheel when it was time to design the hardware.

    No, I’ll probably never let it go, not until the “Xbox Two”. At least you put a good sound chip in there, I’ll grant you that.

  • ElektroDragon

    If you have a PS3 you’ll want to get the Arcania Deluxe Edition physical with the expansion pack instead of this. But at least on the 360 you’ll be able to see the first cutscene correctly and glass objects will not be invisible! However, one of the achievements is glitched and unobtainable on 360, but its obtainable on PS3.

    Yes, I did a lot of research on this game. Almost have Platinumed it.

  • Cagateybaila

    Saving my money today…

    I really hope they put Metro 2033 on sale.

    • SilverDrake20

      Great game, hope they also put the DLC on sale with it if they do.

      • javier210582

        metro 2033 havent dlc u mean metro: last light

        • Does Not Equal

          Yes, Metro 2033 has DLC.

          • Ross Kemp

            That’s fascinating .

        • AC130

          Hardcore Ranger mode. Got it for a buck last time it was on sale just need that game.

    • evilfangs .

      If you have a X1 or PS4 then Id wait for both games to come to current gen systems in a bundle with DLCs at a reduced price.

  • Synklare

    Only one here that I could honestly recommend is the obvious one, Halo 4.

    Dragon Age II is garbage, another wrestling game? No thanks.

    As for the rest? Meh

    Looking forward to tomorrows deals.

  • Jared

    WWE 24K14 Good for this price or not. well season pass is on sale.

  • Jared

    Dam HST IN Canada

  • IN_YO_FACE_86

    I would get Dragon Age 2 but I don’t have the 1st game:(

    • Jared

      Good time to play it before the 3 one coms out this year.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      2 is not as good as the first. do yourself a favor and just get the first and forget about the 2nd.

      • IN_YO_FACE_86

        Oh so that’s why they put the 2nd on sale instead of the 1st Dragon Age.

    • Aggelos Lifer

      better get the 1st, it has an ultimate edition with all dlc

    • OldSocialist

      It’s not a continuation of the first game, so that’s not a problem. It’s also not as good, but that would seem to me to be a good reason to get it first. No, it’s not up there with the greats, but it’s above average (certainly better than sale-mate Arcania) – and when you come to play Origins you’ll be wowed all the more!

      • cortez

        Oh Please Dragon Age 2 runs circles around Origins. Dragon Age 2 is by far a better game, its more responsive compared to the slow and clunky Origins.

  • Dylan Satterfield

    is arcania any good?

    • Some guy

      It’s better than Risen 2 but still terribly boring and clunky.

    • mauszx

      I was curious about that and DA2, but you know what, there is Dragons Dogma and Skyrim, way better games in the genre.

    • Chris Hofer

      I enjoyed the game. But if achievements and getting 100% matter to you, the “Master Chef” achievement is unobtainable according to xboxachievements [dot] com, and it won’t be fixed, I guess.

  • Aggelos Lifer

    Tales of Vesperia, Final Fantasy XIII, Catherine or Deathsmiles plzzzzz

    • Peter

      all those have been on sale still goodies there. Deathsmiles i don’t recall on sale. Regardless isn’t a hardcopy really pretty cheap for DS

  • Mc Knights

    Again there is a clue/hint for tomorrow, but I have no idea what this game could be…red hair, angry eyes, green skin. Maybe someone from here can solve it. You can see the hint on the German Xbox homepage.

    • maxy

      I see it too,but it doesn’t remind me anything :(

    • ImTheMetalLord

      I remember when we here in the US used to get those hints as well but nothing so far the last 2 days.

    • Peter

      blanka!!!!! a streetfighter sale!

      j/k i dunno what it could be. sorry no clue

    • Clemo81

      looks like plants vs zombie, the pea shooter

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    blackgate is whack. just a heads up.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    overall this day is lame. halo 4 is like $10 for the disc version.

  • Peter

    Yesterday had a sliver of good things, didn’t expect ms to keep up that momentum today More old stuff being resold yet again. Gee and halo 4 not beating the current market hardcopy value? ms you never fail to met our lowered expectations

    Least my wallet has a break and can catch up on backlog of games.

  • Karl

    Arcana can’t be downloaded is all I keep getting

    • Some guy

      Takes a truck load of effort to get it downloaded.
      1.go to your hard drive, erease the Arcania download that failed
      2.go to download history and download it back
      Repeat 1 and 2 10 times or until it download.

    • maxy

      If still doesn’t work contact Microsoft Support they might give you a refund.

    • Cameron

      I had that problem, but found a fix, when you turn the 360 off into standby mode it still downloads the media that is in your queue.

      My fix was, I downloaded a trial of an indie game (at least 50MB), and quickly went into download history and downloaded Arcania, then turned my 360 off which put it into standby mode and it downloaded both the indie trial, and Arcania.

  • Dan

    SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX SHADOW COMPLEX

    • ImTheMetalLord

      GREAT game but IMHO waiting for a sale on it to save a couple of bucks isn’t worth it. I paid full price for it when it came out and I’d gladly pay full price for it again. Can’t believe it’s been 4 years since it came out being that it holds up well to anything that is being put out now. I would have bought any DLC’s for this had they made them.

      • Soldier Zero B

        I’ve heard rumors about a SC 2 quite some time ago. This is from vg247: “Epic Game’s Cliff Bleszinski said that most of Shadow Complex 2 had actually been designed and was just awaiting a publisher. Real shame it hasn’t been made yet.”

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Agree….every so oft I do searches to see if it might have been picked up but to no avail. Most all the rumors I see articles on are from late 2011. :(

  • splashpaint

    wwe 2k14 is the best wrestling game ever made if your on the fense jump it….i hate wrestling but i grew up on wcw and actually enjoy some wrestling games.you really cant go wrong with it unless you just hate wrestling games all together

    • evilfangs .

      Sorry but no way is 2k14 the best wrestling game ever made. In fact it’s one of the worst.

      • splashpaint

        ive played em all and i believe without a doubt it is.also im an adult if anybody wants to take a kids opionion over a adult go right ahead…also to each his own.

        • JackPackage

          An adult wouldn’t need to state that they were an adult. They would (in an adult manner) simply state why they feel their opinion is correct. Being an adult, is not a justification for an opinion. Adults are no more inherently trustworthy than children are. In fact, I’d be more inclined to trust a child as they are far less manipulative and more naive and innocent.

          It isn’t even Top 5.

        • evilfangs .

          What does an adult have anything to do with it? Being an adult or a kid doesn’t make your opinion more valid then the others.

          If it worked that way I could come here and say because I’ve been gaming for over 20 years that everyone who hasn’t been gaming as long as me opinion is invalided against mine.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            LMAO..I don’t normally agree with you evilfangs but in this case you are right. In fact would and “adult” even say they were an adult? Funny chit man!!!

  • Andrés

    Oh sh*t The Witcher 2 at 9,89$! and my 360 died the day before yesterday T_T

    • AC130

      Don’t worry at the rate it is going on sale it should be back on sale before the years out at least twice.

  • Peter

    Not on sale persay but a heads up. There’s a new banjo bundle in the marketplace for 15. Not sure if its worth biting for at that price if it was more like 10 maybe. Still tons better than the obscene 15 per game they wanted before.

    Still your paying 15 for 2 games which are only like 10 megs total. yes i realize game size isn’t everything. Still 15 for these 2 really old games

    i dunno. At least it looks like the banzo comments have been kinda heard

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Gotta pick up those bundles if you want them right away also. I’ve seen the other bundles go up for a short time and then when I went to buy them they were no longer being offered.

      Also the final episode of The Wolf Among Us came out today as well.

      • Peter

        yeah not sure whether to bite at 15. Maybe if it was closer to 10. Kinda on the fence. Classic games true and goodies but paying 15 for only 10 megs seems kinda much.Yeah i realize that size isn’t everything

        • wookster

          by that logic you should be paying a pretty penny for any game over 20 gig..

        • ImTheMetalLord

          They must be links to download the individual games. Because Tooie is almost 100mb by itself and Kookie is almost 50mb and they are $15 each if you buy them separate. So this is like a 50% off deal.

          • Beano

            I don’t think I buy it. You spend too much time on here, and it’s like you’re helping promote the sales. But then you’ll throw in a mild put down or something, which just seems like an effort to show that you are not am employee. I would bet $10 you are a MS employee of some sort. You’re like the anti-Microsoft patrol, trying to keep these feeds from being full on complain-fests.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            LMAO!! You would make a good fictional writer. The time I’m on here lots is on my days off and to be honest I don’t have much of a life besides games. More of a statement of how pathetic my life is. OK, you bummed me out so much I might was well go kill myself.

        • Michael Burden

          You can’t judge things by size – otherwise you might never get a girlfriend! LOL!

      • Beano

        So, Metal…what exactly is your title at Microsoft?

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Bean O No. I know you’re trolling trying to get a rise out of me or you really think I work for MS. Either way it don’t matter to me.

          I’ll go on record now to say i don’t work for MS so that way no one can say I didn’t deny it. I could only wish I did that way their money could be coming my way as apposed to the amount of money I spent with them.

          I just love my Xbox and have for a very long time. I’m a big fan of all kinds of games and if you ever visited any of the Indie game sites you would see me posting a lot on them as well as I support Indie gaming above all others.

          I have 3 things that I’m passionate about Gaming (notice that I didn’t say video gaming as my first real love of gaming was chess than D&D, I’m old man), and Metal Music and finally astronomy.

  • bloody

    I wonder when will they make a Rare sale if ever.

    • cortez

      hoping for a Kameo or Conker sale? or a viva pinata and banjo N&B sales? because other sales involving kazooie, tooie and perfect dark have been done.

      • bloody

        banjo sale would be nice

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Did you see the Banjo Bundle that came out today? Get both Kazooie and Tooie for the price of one of them.

      • Professor Oak

        Conker would be nice… except the fact it is not on XBLA or on Demand

  • bigboss

    19.99 euros for halo 4 = a complete ripoff,if you’re living in the Netherlands you can get a brand new sealed copy from mediamarkt for only 9.99..they have been sitting on the shelves at this price for many months now.
    Don’t get fooled by these so called discounts, it’s a mark up in reality..

  • A. J.

    FYI, Halo 4 will be included in the Master Chief collection in November for the Xbox One. If getting Halo 4 now would just be an impulse buy and you have an Xbox One, you may want to save your money and use it in November.

    • Peter

      Agreed not really a deal considering they are soon double dipping on the collection shortly. It doesnt even beat hardcopy prices or just matches it. Point of a sale is to make a deal. This is purely for show. I’d consider this a deal if it was closer to 7.50 or even 5.

  • Some guy

    Arcania, Dragon Age 2, Batman Blackgate, what the hell are they thinking?

  • Cagateybaila

    Is Arcania worth a try?

    • Some guy

      Well, if you don’t count that it’s almost impossible to download the game because of constant download error, it’s really not a good game.

      • Cameron

        I had that problem, but found a fix, when you turn the 360 off into standby mode it still downloads the media that is in your queue.

        My fix was, I downloaded a trial of an indie game (at least 50MB), and quickly went into download history and downloaded Arcania, then turned my 360 off which put it into standby mode and it downloaded both the indie trial, and Arcania

        • Some guy

          Worth a try, I just kept trying and it eventually worked.
          Game was so bad I wish it didn’t work though.

    • maxy

      If you are an achievement hunter,this game has 2 unobtainable achievements.

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

      I tried the demo last night and didn’t like it myself but you might. Everyone likes different styles of gameplay.

    • Chris Hofer

      I enjoyed the game. But if achievements and getting 100% matter to you, the “Master Chef” achievement is unobtainable according to xboxachievements [dot] com, and it won’t be fixed, I guess. :-(

    It’s good to see a few different games on sale for a change; I don’t remember Arcania, Dragon Age II or Blackgate being on sale before.

    To anybody sitting on the fence, £3.74 is an absolutely RIDICULOUS bargain for Dragon Age II it is a very good game, don’t let the fan-girls tell you otherwise. Sure, it is nowhere near as good as Dragon Age: Origins but Origins is one of the finer games of this generation, so it hardly does the sequel justice to say that it isn’t as good.

    £3.74 for a game that you’ll easily squeeze 20+ hours out of, and it is a very good game but you know these gaming hipsters that frequent comments sections just LOVE to hate on EA for absolutely any perceived wrongdoing.

    The Halo 4 ‘deal’ is a bit of a slap in the face really, Microsoft. The game is dead, you might have slightly revived it if you offered it for £4.99 but you’re still charging £14.99 for it? Why? It will be rendered absolutely useless in a few months when the Master Chief Collection arrives. Why try to gouge the last few potential customers? Not only that but it screws those of us that bought it at full price because you aren’t giving people any incentive to try the game and potentially fill the servers up of a game that is completely dead.

    Speaking of which, does anybody have an idea what the online populations of Gears 3 and Fight Night Champion look like with the recent sales? Seen a significant population increase or not? Might dust my copies off, if people are playing them again.

      EA marketter please go away.

      • JackPackage

        You’ve caught me. Electronic Arts planted me into this blog over a year ago and paid me a good wage to post my opinions, make terrible jokes and reply to Maxy.

        Last night I received my splinter cell activation code that my mission has started. I will finally start generating income for the company by pushing copies of a 3 year old game on sale for under $5. This will surely see EA take over the gaming world and justify my highly lucrative wage.

        And we would have gotten away with it, if it wasn’t for you pesky kids.

        • cortez

          Now thats Gold

        • Some guy

          You forgot about the dog.

        • Legion

          You like a game I don’t like? There must be some other explanation!

        • maxy

          Just because other people buy some games from sales,doesn’t make them kids.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            pads.

          • maxy

            Yeah you like to put them in your butt.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            i told you to stop spying on me. im shy but very naughty.

          • maxy

            Hahahaha. Thanks you for making me laugh.

        • Does Not Equal

          You were good until you mentioned a “Splinter Cell activation code.” Everyone known that’s Ubisoft. BUSTED

          • Ross Kemp

            That’s fascinating .

          • Justin Felder

            That is funny.

    • Justin Felder

      I have gears 3. You still find people to play multiplayer with. Campaign not so much. The Season Pass maps are kind of low in my opinion.

    • Master Troll

      MS is greedy and does not know the value of a digital copy lol

  • cortez

    Major Nelson or Xbox, please give us Wolf Among Us season pass sales promo or at least an offer on Wallace and Gromit or Sam and Max episodes and season.

    • Nick Peck

      Still several more days of the sale, just wait and see what they bring.

  • Digiadam

    Well at least there one awesome game ( Halo 4 ) and one decent game ( Batman ) on this sale.

    • Mando44646

      the Batman game sucks balls. I had it on Vita and it was downright horrible and boring as hell, do not buy

      • cortez

        when you say boring do you mean arkham origins average compard to predecessors or mirror of fate boring

        • Mando44646

          This isnt Arkham Origins. Its Blackgate. Its a halfhearted attempt at a Metroidvania and *nothing* at all like the actual Arkham games. Constant repetition of areas over and over and over and it just gets plain ‘ol boring.

          Arkham Origins I loved. I dont know why that game gets so much hate but I enjoyed it as much as the other two Arkham games

    • cortez

      Why do people like Halo so much, Reach is the only one i found tolerable, every other one is just hype like cod multiplayer

      • Digiadam

        Because unlike COD it has an actual story…..and it’s an awesome one at that.

        You don’t like the series? That’s your fault……go back to playing PAC-MAN. Maybe that will entertain ya.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      again, Blackgate is horrible.

  • Mando44646

    5 bucks for DA2? Hell yeah, everyone should buy that. I just had to track down a used copy at GS for $12 yesterday, so its a bit frustrating for me that I wasnt patient :D

    Definitely picking up ArcaniA for 5 bucks as well!

    • Soldier Zero B

      I found a copy of DA2 at BB a while back for $5. And have fun downloading Arcania; people throughout this blog have been harping about how it refuses to download. And, also, why would you go shopping for an older game while Microsoft’s Ultimate Sale was happening?

      • Cameron

        I had that problem, but found a fix, when you turn the 360 off into standby mode it still downloads the media that is in your queue.

        My fix was, I downloaded a trial of an indie game (at least 50MB), and quickly went into download history and downloaded Arcania, then turned my 360 off which put it into standby mode and it downloaded both the indie trial, and Arcania.

        • Soldier Zero B

          nice!

    • Does Not Equal

      … return the used copy, buy the cheap digital copy?

      • Ross Kemp

        That’s great .

      • Mando44646

        I might just do that :D

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      don’t fool people. that game sux, DA2 i mean.

      • theREALmaxy

        YOURE OPINION!!!!

    • Chris Hofer

      Good game (ArcaniA)! I finished it a long time ago. Just a fair warning that there is one achievement (Master Chef) that is bugged/unobtainable…if that matters to you.

  • Uberskillz1908

    I really would like to see some more xbox one games on this list in days to come, I mean there have not been that many benefits for early adopters of the xbox one as of yet, yes there are good deals for xbox 360 users and I am still an avid player on the 360 console but please please bring deals for games and add on content for xbox one games, don’t just want cod season pass and titanfall

    • Mando44646

      agreed. There’s no reason that there shouldnt be XBO support as well in this sale. The library is large enough by now to at least put one or two things on sale each day

      • ImTheMetalLord

        X1 has 61 games total available. If they started discounting those games already no one would buy the games at regular prices and just wait till they go on sale. Now is that a smart business model?

        As apposed the 360 has approximately 3000 games available for digital download.

        Hmmmmmm logic anyone?

        • Nick Peck

          Yay, another logical person!! Nice to meet you :p

          It’s amazing to me that soooooo many people have no clue as to how things work. I know not everyone is business oriented or knowledgeable but man, so much of it is common sense imo.

          Not to mention, if you have seen a LOT of “new gen” system launch like I have over the years, you just know what to expect. Sure, you will see some XBO games on sale, but it’s WAY to early for games to get discounted to $5 lol.

          You will see an XBO sale like this in about 4-5 more years when there is a full library to pull from. Everyone is so impatient and expects instant gratification these days…

          • ImTheMetalLord

            And I didn’t even mention that we didn’t see the price hike go on with this new generation that we have seen in the past. The price for a new X1 isn’t that much more than the price of a new 360 game right now. In the past you’d see a 30% or more increase from one generation of console to the next.

          • Nick Peck

            Oh trust me, I have said that very thing in so many posts that I’m sick of typing it lol. You are EXACTLY right! Usually every next gen system that launches you would see game prices rise, but guess what? We haven’t seen a price hike in almost a decade now and people don’t even realize how lucky we are that we aren’t paying at least $80+ a game now a days.

          • evilfangs .

            We have seen a price rise for games though? 360 games new used to cost me £39.99 now X1 / PS4 games cost £50-55.

          • Nick Peck

            Sorry, I’m saying that from a US point of view. I have no clue (other than government taxing and what not) why other countries pay so much. For us all new games are always $59.99 (obviously there are always some exceptions like Lego games @ $49.99 and what not) and have been that way for pretty much the last 10 years.

            Before games got bumped up to $59.99, they were generally $40-50. But then you had the N64 where most games would cost upwards of $80 lol.

          • Peter

            Funny thing is games nowadays have actually gotten cheaper. Remember when phantasy star was like 80 new and those games didnt have voice acting and budgets like todays games have. People wanna always look back and think that games back then were much cheaper than they actually were in reality

        • Mando44646

          PS4 as less (at least it seems that way to me) yes they discount PS4 games and give away new ones on PS+. No reason Microsoft cannot do the same.

          That said, this sale on 360 games is definitely better than the sad excuse for a summer sale that PS just recently ran

          • Nick Peck

            Big difference on getting full AAA games for free vs. arcade / indie games. I tie all free ps4 game to my account and I don’t recall getting any free AAA games yet. They haven’t even really discounted many either (AAA that is).

      • Uberskillz1908

        There is a vast catalogue as you say, I would like to see dead rising season pass, trials fusion season pass, or powerstar golf/ crimson dragon or even some killer instinct content go dirt cheap, ive almost exhausted all xbox one games now, played almost every one to date, and now getting bored, need some fresh deals and more games to be plowed onto the marketplace, dare I say it I may have to go play the ps4 for a while, don’t be concerned though I will still prefer the xbox format over playstation format any day of the week

  • mauszx

    If I can put a name for the sale of yesterday I will name it “games that are different”. If I can named today sale it would be “games that have better predecessors”

  • King_Tyrion

    xbox one has been forgotten?there are not enough games indi & AAA to make a daily deal?then want people to switch to the new generation? :S

    • Nick Peck

      Honestly? So, what if they keep deeply discounting brand new games, what do you think would happen? No one would buy them in hopes of them going on sale which isn’t good for business. There is nowhere near a sizable library on the XBO yet, for that to happen you need to give it another 4 years imo.

      • maxy

        You are so right. If they sales on xbox one games still people will moan about it.

      • theREALmaxy

        I BUY FIVE COPY EACH I LOVE MICROSOFT!!!!!!!!!!!

      • King_Tyrion

        steam makes offers games that have less than 2 months, so that you say is a story and an excuse

    • Michael Burden

      Well the title says “Xbox 360 Ultimate Game Sale” not Xbox One Ultimate Sale. That alone should have given you a clue.

      • King_Tyrion

        Because of it I ask to seeing if they have forgotten of xbox One, Because they are the same company not?

  • Steven Heuer

    So whats the verdict on Blackgate? I would have definitely gone for it at $5, but $10 seems a bit much. I was hoping Arkham Orgins was going to be $10 this sale so I could pick it up, but doubt it now.

    • Ross Kemp

      $5 yes – $10 no .
      Plain and simple .

      • Peter

        Agreed bought it day one at 20 and now less eager to grab things so quickly. Its quite boring and dull. Trust me your not missing anything if you wait on this to more like 5.

  • Legion

    I believe The Wolf Among Us season pass would be the only thing I would bite on at this point. Maybe misc. dlc for games I have.
    Day 2 not for me, but hopefully something good for others. Ready for day 3

    • http://matejgottwald.wordpress.com/ Matěj Gottwald

      I picked Walking Dead S2 Season Pass, because it was the only one I didn’t have from Telltale’s “interactive movies”. I am eagerly awaiting the E5 of Wolf among Us!

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Wolf Among Us E5 is out today.

  • Brian Bradford

    This is just sad when compared to steam sales….

    • maxy

      Steam sales ended 2 weeks ago. And there is no reason comparing them.

      • Brian Bradford

        I don’t care when they ended this sale is pathetic compared to the steam sale, I compared them because Xbox is calling this the “ultimate game sale” this “ultimate sale” is pretty sad when compared to other game sales which was the whole point of my comment. If they want to call something the ultimate sale they should at least make sure they are somewhat close to the best game sales in the gaming industry,

        • Blendy

          Lord, you are a baby. Do you email other companies that have “ultimate” sales and tell them their sale sucks because the steam sale had better discounts? Sheesh.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Very nice FIRST comment!

        • Peter

          While you do have a point your conparing almost two different worlds. First of ms has a monopoly on their consoles hence no competition in that regard second and probably more important is piracy is much lower on consoles vs the pc where they literally have no choice but to get as low as possible to recuperate costs. Is it fair? No but thats the state of the business. Ms isnt an idiot and realizes that they can charfe as much as they feel

        • maxy

          It might be not for your taste,but for others it is and some free advice never compare apples with bananas.

        • theREALmaxy

          iGNORE THE TROLL PRETENDING TO BE ME. ITS APPLES AND AVACADOS UR COMPARING!!!

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

        Actually this has been a great sale so far. I’ve been able to pick up some stuff that I missed or didn’t have the cash for before.

        • maxy

          Me too,but im not bragging about it on xbox blog.

    • Nick Peck

      This has nothing to do with steam so why bother commenting? Two totally different animals even though they are in the same industry.

      • Brian Bradford

        I bothered because they claim this to be an :ultimate sale” if they want to call it that they should at least come somewhat close to one of if not the best sale in the gaming industry. It’s sad when a Xbox sale sells a game for $35 and steam sells it for $5.

        That was kind of my whole point here xbox “sales” = sad

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Plenty of $5 deals here as well. Where you looking?

          • Brian Bradford

            Maybe I need to be more specific. a NEWER game like tomb raider goes on sale for $35 on xbox but for $5 on steam. Xbox games only go on sale for $5 after they have been out a few years and have already had the priced reduced a decent amount.

            $5 for a $20 game Vs $5 for a $50+ game….yea big difference

          • ImTheMetalLord

            You’re delisional….PC games never sell at a $50 price point. They may try but they don’t sell at that price. Apples and Oranges my friend.

          • Nick Peck

            It’s pretty easy, games like that sell a lot more on consoles vs. the PC (unless it’s a browser game and or an MMO.. or the Sims… only half joking lol).

            The only reason people make a huge deal about the Steam sales are because most of those people never buy games at full price, ever. Cheapo gamers :D But yah, you can’t pass up good deals, I’d never argue that.

            But at the same point, ask the publishers why they only discount their game so far, maybe they can give you a definitive answer. MS asks for deals on games in their catalog and pubs / dev’s get back with what they will allow.

          • Ross Kemp

            That’s fascinating .

      • Ross Kemp

        Then how are they ” two totally different animals ” ?

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Just like Lions and Tigers live in the deserts in Africa. DUH!!

          • Ross Kemp

            Oh yes , both from the same feline cat family…….totally different yup . Derpy derp .

          • ImTheMetalLord

      • Brian Bradford

        Two totally different animals that just happen to have A LOT of cross platform titles between them……

          We’re technically on day two. I think the 24-hour duration is why Major’s been giving us a slight early look when he can, and there’s always XBLDB

    • Chris Hofer

      If you really want to know sooner, at least here in the USA, you can check xbldb [dot] com in the “Price Decreases” section. Sales typically go live the evening before. I’m in the Central Time Zone, so I usually check between 8 and 9 p.m.
