  • Praytoseedeath

    Come on nano-machines daddy needs some MG rising!!!

    • GenericBlackPerson420

      O’Please no. I literally bought the game a few days ago.

    • Some Person

      You realize that game was a total flop–for good reason–and can be picked up pretty much anywhere for less than half of what the Microsoft Games store charges… right?

      • Dylan

        It sold well over 1.5 million units and that doesn’t cover PC sales. 80 metacritic. Didn’t make gangbusters or was a critically darling, but it doesn’t seem like a flop to me. It’s not like it had a Destiny kind of budget.

      • MyCodenameIsIan

        It did pretty good for Konami actually. Its 1.5M+ sales are only beaten out by Pro Evolution Soccer and the mainline Metal Gear titles.

        Platinum turned around the game really quickly, when it was on the verge of being canned.

        Kojima recently talked about collaborating with Platinum again for a sequel but Platinum are really busy at present with at least 3 titles confirmed in development.

    • マリオ

      I actually want MGR as well. I think it would be an evolution of Anarchy Reigns. I enjoyed that game enough so I would definitely get MGR.

  • usrev

    if you don’t have peggle yet you really need to buy it.

    • Professor Oak

      Unless you already have it or can get it free on PC

      • Some Person

        Didn’t you hear? @usrev:disqus insists the Xbox version is better… I know for a fact that when I’m trying to make incredibly precise movements I always go for the sloppy control sticks. O:-)

    • Ross Kemp

      Currently free on Origin .

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

    …and still haven’t bought any game. How does Xbox define ULTIMATE? :(

    • Some Person

      Some of the weekly deals really are pretty good. Witcher 2 is phenomenal, the Fallout games are grand, Dark Souls II had $20 knocked off the price (of course that one wasn’t advertised) a few days ago, Skyrim, Dishonored, Silent Hill HD… there are some winners in the weekly but every single one has been on sale multiple times for the same price before so it’s really not encouraging.

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

        From your recommendation and also from a few friends, I think I’ll pick Witcher 2……but not untill Monday and that’s if I still haven’t bought anything. Really want a game to play but….

        • Some Person

          Witcher 2 is a strange bird. It’s dark, gritty, has a lot of socio-political subtext and classism/racism with an interesting story and one of the best protagonists that has entered fantasy in decades. CD Projekt Red did a great job translating the books. The game play is fantastic too (inventory menu can be a bit clunky to be fair) ranging from what is a simple hack and slash on the easiest difficulty to an engaging and brutal tactical combat type game on the hardest.

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

            Wow…just watched the trailer and I think I like it

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

            One thing I’m bothered with is the length. Can get pretty busy at work so I sometimes love short and quick games..lol

          • Some Person

            I think it took about 20 hours for the main quest and it’s broken up into three rather self-contained acts (act 2 is different depending on choices made) so it’s manageable. The great thing about The Hexer (most relevant English translation) is that the books are sort of anthologies of short stories with a rather broad over-arching plot. The games are designed in the same spirit.

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

            I see….guess I’ll try it out. Thanks bro, much apreciated

      • Bronson

        That’s true, some of the games on the weekly deal are great. But the offered games in the “ultimate” daily “sale” are mostly crappy, or their pricing is ridiculous and still much more expensive than the retail version. South Park TSOT is a great game, but 45 bucks? On sale? Now that’s some poor pricing!
        I’m not even going to talk about the ridiculous cost for CoD, even on sale…

        • Some Person

          I agree completely and the saddest part of it all is 95% of these pseudo-sales are repeats from only a few months ago.

  • Edward

    I wanted to pay the $20 bucks for Madden but thanks to the regional blocking once again my purchase is denied and my money remains in my wallet. Can someone explain to me how this geo blocking makes any business sense? This is like the 5th game this week that I prohibited from purchasing!

    • Some Person

      That’s something you’d have to take up with your local government. They are the ones who are censoring it, not Microsoft.

      • Edward

        I sincerely doubt my local government is the problem when downloading the same games is not an issue through PSN, just seems silly to me that Microsoft won’t take my money

        • Some Person

          Microsoft is bound by law to obey international import/export treaties. Sony is based out of Japan whereas Microsoft is based out of the United States so there are different treaties and laws in effect.

          • Edward

            So in other words, Xbox live is best suited for americans while PSN is best suited for the rest of the world. Since I am american now living abroad I wish I knew this before renewing my gold subscription two months ago. Thank you for the info, I am gonna ask for a refund on my subscription ASAP.

          • Some Person

            Eh… if you live in a country America is comfortable with you should have no problems unless your local government dislikes certain aspects of the game. If you’re in the military and living on base you are still in America and can switch your region back to America.

            Good luck with the refund, you won’t get it.

          • Jared

            There is no law on the PSN blockingout any away.

  • Chumis

    Well if this still like that bad way until sunday i gonna try The Witcher 2.

    • Jared

      You well Like, When the III One coms out Next Year for new gen. then you’re save files well go over for the new one when you bet it.

  • jota

    if there’s nothing good tomorrow i just gonna buy dishonored.. and btw L4d should have been free with gold

    • Jared

      Fallout NV is good game. Skyrim + two DLC With
      Dawnguard + Dragonborn and Fallout 3 and get Darksiders II And Witcher II There all games to get

    • Some Person

      Nothing good? It’s Call of Poopie: Gas for the ninth time since it’s release! This is obviously the bestest game evar made since it goes on sale every 3 weeks at least!

  • Gary Norton

    WHY ARE EVERYONE SAYING OH THIS AND THAT IS FREE OR CHEAPER ON PC or PS3……..We dont care!!!! Dont give a flying hoot if its free on STEAM, this is a XBOX board…..go away…..begone!!!!

    • Some Person

      I’ll re-direct you to the comments below explaining what “free-market” and “capitalism” mean.

    • Dan

      I’m also sick of hearing about Steam this, and Steam that as well. Not everyone has Steam. My computer is like a 5 year old laptop that can’t play sh*t. I have to play everything on my Xbox or PS3. So these games may be free or cheaper for you (Steam players), but not for me.

      • Some Person

        Just because your computer is an antique doesn’t mean everyone else’s is. A lot of people own two, or more, consoles and do have a right to air grievances despite what you may think.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      America!!!! F-Yeah. Freedom is the only way now.

    • Bennijin

      Because by pointing out the competition some of us hope to achieve better deals for Xbox owners, unlikely though that may be, as Microsoft still refuse to “jump in” and be competitive digitally. It’s a means to an end.

    • Dylan

      Are you arguing that competition is detrimental to consumers?

      • Some Person

        He is.

    • Mando44646

      Because competition is important?

  • Riekopo

    When does the Xbox One games sale start? That’s the one that actually matters.

    • Some Person

      3 to 5 years.

    • RAULxPUDD

      Not when 90% of your consumers are still on xbox 360. Needs of the many out weight the needs of the few sorry just the way it works in life,

    • Bennijin

      I’m still waiting for the Xbox 360 games sale to start.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    everybody. yeah. rock your body. yeah. rock your body right. you all know the rest. i freaking love this blog.

  • DyingRomanGaming

    If everyone buys a game on that list, it should be The Witcher 2.

    • Some Person

      *channeling Maxy* No, no it should totally be Call of Duty: Ghosts! It’s great! Best game ever! Thank you Microsoft for putting it on sale 9 times so I can buy it 9 different times!

      • Dave Breadner

        I hear it’s got a dog in it.

        • Ross Kemp

          The dog was holding out for a role in Battlefield ………….but ya know , a dog has to make a living somehow .

          • AC130

            What about the fish? They must be proud with the 5 minutes of screen they got.

        • Some Person

          A dog?!?! NO WAY!!! Thank you Microsoft! I LOVE YOU!

      • AC130

        You would be right but this sales brings it to around 15.

  • Bennijin

    South Park £37.49: Really? That’s the deal price? That is not a deal by any stretch of the imagination, it’s been £20 or less for MONTHS.

    L4D2 £3.74: Not a bad price but that the DLC, and at one point the game itself, were free elsewhere and not here is a disgrace. You should observe what the competition are doing and match or beat it, no exceptions.

    Madden £20.99: £15.00 at GAME brand new.

    Peggle £1.68: I think it’s overrated, but it’s not bad for that. Free on Origin sure, but then you’d have to use Origin. Discount on the Peggle Nights addon next week, right?

    Another day where you get none of my money.

    • MyCodenameIsIan

      These games aren’t published by Microsoft. Their sales team have to contact the publishers to agree to these promotions.

      That said, L4D2 is the only one I considered from today’s selection.

      So far I have only bought The Walking Dead S2 pass.

  • Jared

    Any know’s about the new Deals Yet.

    • bigboss

      2 to 3 hours before the next deals will start to show up.

  • Toastwithbutter

    Anyone seen through tomorrows keyhole? what deal is visible?

    • bigboss

      cod ghosts

    • k1LL3rX

      CoD Ghosts *sigh* -_-

  • Jared

    why not NHL 14

    • Some Person

      Simple, there’s no “bling” packs for it.

    • Jose Medina

      is nhl only for white people i want to get in to hockey but all the racism surrounding the league turns me away.

      • Some Person

        Haha, is basketball only for black people? Sports are sports. Canada is mostly white so hockey is mostly white. It’s not racism, it’s just who plays it. I’ve seen some phenomenal black people play hockey.

        • Jose Medina

          you don’t see black players being racist against white players in basketball but in hockey well lets just say bananas where thrown and racist comments against NHL black players on twitter.

          • Some Person

            Sadly there will always be racists in the world and the internet–with it’s anonymity–is a breeding ground for prejudice and hatred. Most hockey fans are actually fairly laid back.

          • Dylan

            How convenient to forget the Donald Sterling controversy…and how everyone knew how racist he was for 3 decades…

          • Some Person

            … but he gave free tickets to those poor “urban” kids… (this is sarcasm by the way)

  • Luis Cajigas

    really hope day 6 and 7 daily sale are better than these.

    • Some Person

      Well if you didn’t get Ghosts any of the eight other times you’re in luck…

      • Jared

        Ghosts on sale all Joy for get it.

  • Some Person

    Ghosts — $35.99 so not even 50% off on their “big game,” pathetic.

    • Dave Breadner

      It’s like they just copy & pasted a previous deal.

      • Some Person

        Actually it’s a whole $4.01 less than before… probably because no one bought it at $40 the other eight times…

        • AC130

          I count 14 times

  • Jared

    any one elase on here is on sale less who cares about cod game what was name i for got.

    • Dave Breadner

      That’s going to haunt you, isn’t it?

      • Jared

        you know how many times you this cod game com on sale now like how many dam times.

        • Some Person

          nine

    • Chris Hofer

      You should bookmark the website xbldb [dot] com. Then, go to the “price decreases” section of that page. You can click on each game listed (these are the sales) to see a complete history of when it has increased/decreased in price. Also, sales almost always go on sale the evening prior to the “official” day(s) of the sale. I usually check between 8 and 9 p.m. (Central time).

  • bigboss

    Payday 2 $8.74
    Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands $4.99
    meh..

  • マリオ

    Someone please put something on sale that isn’t CoD Ghosts. No one wants that damn game. OMFG!!

    I hope there are at least 6 games on sale tomorrow.

    • Some Person

      There’s 4… Payday 2 again, The Bridge (never even heard of it), Ghosts again, and PoP: Forgotten Sands again

      • マリオ

        I heard about The Bridge before, but I forgot what it was called. I think it’s a puzzle game.

        I had PoP Forgotten Sands previously. Downloaded it, beat it, deleted it and forgot about it.

        This ultimate sale is always pretty much fail.

      • Bennijin

        The Bridge is a repeat deal too.

        • FiveMagic5

          How much was it last sale?

          • Bennijin

            Same as this time.

      • FiveMagic5

        I have heard some really good things about the Bridge but if it is only 50% off I might just wait

    • Does Not Equal

      I think they’d stop putting Ghosts up if people stopped buying it. Always get the impression that discounted COD sells every time.

  • Jared

    PAYDAY 2 good for CO-OP 75% off
    The Bridge wtf that Game 50% off
    COD Ghost don’t buy it 40% off
    Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands Good game. 75% off
    This is the last Day Sale end Monday from sunday to Monday.

    • FiveMagic5

      I might get the Bridge, PayDay2 was literally just on sale a week or so ago -.-

    • マリオ

      Why wouldn’t they have a new Monday/7th Day sale?

      • Jared

        Larry Said end monday.

        • Turlough

          In his orignal post, Larry said that it was “For the next seven days”, tomorrow is Day 6, Monday is Day 7. Xbox sales usually start Tuesday and end Monday inclusively, When any ad says that a sale ends Monday, they mean that Monday is the last day of the sale, not that it’s no longer ongoing and actually ended the day before. There will be a Monday sale and it should include BioShock Infinite (per the podcast).

          • Some Person

            Didn’t the podcast say Infinite would be on sale (again) this weekend though? Monday isn’t the weekend. :-P

          • Turlough

            Yeah, I agree, I was definitely expecting it to be part of the daily deals tomorrow, especially because I’m hoping to pick it up, but I think it’s more likely Jeff got confused with the date (he sounded unsure to me) instead of saying the wrong title or that for some reason they decided to pull the game completely from the sale.

          • Some Person

            They probably pulled it in favor of Ghosts.

    • Some Person

      It’s not the last day… still have Sunday to go.

      • Jared

        that is the sunday sale.

        • Some Person

          Haha, you’re right, my disappoint has my brain not working properly. I meant Monday.

    • deadbox102

      No sale on the 7th day? Are they resting on the 7th day or something?

  • FiveMagic5

    Is the Witcher 2 good?

    • Jared

      yes buy buy buy it

      • FiveMagic5

        About how long is the game play? I don’t want to start another game and then never finish it

        • マリオ

          It’s 3 Acts, but Act 3 is short as hell and it’s kind of linear. You will finish it.

          • Some Person

            … but Act 2 is crazy long. :-P

        • Jared

          about 80 or More. but it a good damn game for goty.

    • マリオ

      I would definitely recommend it.

  • FiveMagic5

    I just really want the State of Decay DLC to go on sale

    • Some Person

      Won’t happen. There hasn’t been one piece of DLC during the daily sales.

    • Does Not Equal

      It’s too new.

      • Ross Kemp

        That’s fascinating .

  • jota

    Monday NBA 2k14 and DLC’s im guessing

    • Some Person

      Man, leave my platinum “bling” out of this!

  • deadbox102

    $8.79 good for PayDay 2? Is the game buggy?

    • choke

      this game is not that bad for under 10 dollars,
      Good to be a bad guy for under 10 dollars

    • bigboss

      Payday 2 never got updated on 360,360 version is the same version as the
      pc beta version,only on ps3 and pc can you play this game with the latest patches.

    • Sknots

      Cant say buggy at all but it has some technical issues, still, its a great game, its super fun, very original and addictive, the thing is if you dont have friends to play with or you dont play it online then forget about this game, if you wanna get the most of it you gotta play it smart with a well organized team

  • chris

    The bridge and Prince of Persia prices are the same price in Australia as they are in America, but the other 2 are not. What is up with the different pricing?

    • AC130

      They just really do not like us or the Europeans. I would get PayDay 2 for the American pricing but no we get it for a low price of $15.

      • chris

        Yeah it sucks and does not make sense we get screwed on some games but others can be a good price. If some games can be priced at a good price for Australia then why are all games not priced like this?

  • Jose Ponce

    PayDay 2 for $8.79 It is a good game? I’ve heard good and bad reviews, thanks.

    • Sknots

      Es un juego brutalmente divertido, original e inteligente pero solo funciona si tienes con quien jugar Coop, ese es el brillo del juego, piensa en un Left 4 dead donde si no juegas con gente real organizados, es un desmadre

    • ryder4life22187

      Problem is the MS denied payday 2’s update file as it came in a whooping 4gb. So the game was never updated. Better off getting it on the PC or PS3 if you can.

      • deadbox102

        Don’t feel like buying an unfinished game.

        • ryder4life22187

          I got it from Plus and was glad I did as I wound up hating the game.

  • Harold Rivera

    A wild offer appeared!!!
    M$ used Recycle!!
    But It Failed………

  • Mando44646

    Maybe we’ll get better deals tomorrow. The GTA and South Park prices have been particularly disappointing

    • Some Person

      Serious question, why are people still saying this after 6 days of disappointment?

      • Nick Peck

        There has been a lot of great games super cheap lol, sorry nothing specifically tailored to you though… :|

        Not to mention it’s a system (exactly like the ps3) that is starting to wind down so all they can really do is toss up the systems best sellers in hopes they catch people that missed them the first go around. Kinda like me, I skipped a ton of these games so picking them up for $4-10 is fine by me.

  • Shabba199

    Please put Shadowrun on sale!!!

    • Dylan

      Shadowrun Returns is the only real Shadowrun of the past 10 years.

      • Some Person

        Brilliant game, don’t forget about Dragonfall DLC. It’s essentially an entire new game.

        • Dylan

          I finished up Dragonfall the other day, one of the best RPG’s I’ve played in some time. 100x better than the base game, so glad I picked it up in the Steam sale, I enjoyed it immensely.

          • Some Person

            I went with GOG for them and I honestly wish I went with Steam just for the Steam Workshop additions. Getting custom made content on the GOG version is nowhere near as intuitive.

          • Dave Breadner

            Perhaps when they bring in their client, it will save a trip to the nexusmods.

      • Shabba199

        lol your right about that but, the shooter Shadowrun is awesome too… well at least in my opinion

  • José Netto

    bioshock infinite for tomorrow… hmmm couple of weak days ..imo

  • James Corns

    My god, yet AGAIN another terrible sale from Ms. One of many reasons why I won’t be getting an xbox one. Cod ghosts for £29.99? Is that even “sale” price anymore?
