  • Luis Cajigas

    Why Not Just Put The Season Pass On Sale.

    • Rupert Oldcorn

      Yeah don’t really get the point, it’s £16.06 with the discounts to buy just the story DLC – so why not just buy the Season Pass for £15.99?

      • Pete

        I’d been waiting long enough for the season pass to drop that I finally gave up a couple of weeks ago when Infinite and the Season Pass came up in the Steam sale for £10.

        It’s madness when it’s cheaper to buy the “whole” game again than just it’s DLC when it’s apparently on sale.

        And before anyone shouts “you can’t compare consoles and PC sales”… of course you can! …

        I’m done with discs now and with the often silly digital prices on consoles any platform preference I had has gone out of the window. If there’s no compelling reason (exclusives or co-op mainly) to buy on a given platform (Xbox, PS or PC) I’m going where it looks good and costs less.

        Oh, and if you’re interested in Bioshock they’re all part of this weeks’ Humble Bundle … prices vary but it’s worth checking out.

      • Bennijin

        Because the Season Pass used to be £13.49 and they actually jacked the price up hoping nobody would notice.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      that would be too sane.

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

    No as bad as we initial thought! Some classic games on sale here.

    I already have all the 360 content with the exception of the Bioshock Infinite DLC. I’m waiting for the season pass to go on sale given its still the cheapest way to get all the content.

  • Nick King

    Wolfenstein The New Order is a fantastic game, well worth the money. Not sure about Plants v Zombies, good price at only £20 in the UK but not sure I’ll like it.

    For anyone owning a 360 and hasn’t played Bioshock then buy it now, brilliant games.

    • Rupert Oldcorn

      Yay, I’ll be picking Wolfenstein up. Wonder if they will make the normal mistake of saying it’ll be 33% then it being 25% for two days before they fix it?

      • Digiadam

        That Wolfenstein deal is awful.

        Run down to Walmart this week before Friday and you can get it for 39.95cdn ( or whatever that translates into for your local currency )

        • Rupert Oldcorn

          Ah, but the blu ray drive on my Xbox One is only for blu rays and dvds

  • Adrian

    Good deals this week will be picking up Wolfenstein for sure, thanks!

    • Nick King

      Looks like that’s only available 17th to 20th and also available to Silver members so not really a Deal with Gold.
      Great game though so pick that up while you can.

    • Paul

      I thought it was a bit sly putting Doom and Quake and wolfenstein on this list then putting in the small print Not on sale till 17th to 20th July ( Todays the 15th). I almost made the mistake thinking the £3.39 was the sale price till I thought that not right and read the small print. These game should of gone on a second post saying there’s going to be more coming to the sale

      • Peter

        Yeah starting to suspect ms is trying to catch people on purpose at checkout ahead of time. You know those whose eager eyes dont notice the asterisk and read the fine print. Really should be a seperate post closer to the 17th

    • Digiadam

      That Wolfenstein deal is awful.

      Run down to Walmart this week before Friday and you can get it for 39.95cdn ( or whatever that translates into for your local currency )

      Save your money….

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Sale don’t start till the 17th. It will be the same price.

        • Digiadam

          Well at least those who want it now can get it for 39.95cdn at Walmart instead of waiting. ;)

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Spend money on gas. Deal with the people at Walmart. Or wait 2 days and get me a digital copy. Well I guess to each their own.

          • Digiadam

            You must have a really crappy walmart then. LOL!!!!! I walk to mine, an hour away.

            To each their own. ;)

      • Adrian

        Once I factor in the plane ticket and the hotel it would work out a little bit more expensive for me….

  • m1nh0ca

    Thanks for Doom and Wolf 3D… but seriously, Bioshock again?

    IMHO, who wanted to play Bioshock 1 and 2 did it already. The newcomers to X360 may find those games in any shop for $5 at most. If “digital version is mandatory” (which is really not my case), ok, have fun. You and the other 3 guys who match this profile.

    Besides, I have a feeling that Bioshock will be one of the Games with Gold in the future. Fallout 3, Oblivion, GTA IV and Bully are in this personal preview as well.

    • Catalyst

      If anything buying the physical copy of the first two that came with all of the DLC is the way to go.

      • Bennijin

        They did an edition of BioShock 2 with all the DLC? I didn’t know about that.

        The only one worth a damn is Minerva’s Den anyway. The multiplayer… well, there’s a reason Infinite doesn’t have any.

  • Cagateybaila

    MS thinks people who bought Bioshock Infinite yesterday have already finished the game and are anxious for the DLCs.

    • Catalyst

      Back when I bought it I couldn’t stop playing it and finished in a little under 15 hours (I like exploring). Maybe not doable in a day, but with the DLC being on sale a whole week it’s definitely incentive.

    • Some guy

      Yet it’s still cheaper to get the season pass.

  • evilfangs .

    Why is Bioshock Infinite 57% off now when a few days ago it was 67%….

    You aren’t even hiding the fact that you’re fisting us customers now, you’re blatantly shoving it on our faces.

    • Cagateybaila

      OMG, haven’t noticed that xD

      I’m truly glad my Gold subscription expires this Friday.

      • Hugoku

        Are you truly glad? As in, you would be glad if it would expire sooner, like today?
        Or are you just indifferent?

        How can you be glad?

    • Catalyst

      Because that was the “Ultimate Sale” deal and this is the Weekly Deal (still don’t know why they chose the same game though).

      • Cagateybaila

        Nah, I bought Bioshock Infinite in a March’s weekly sale and it was the same price as yesterday, 67% off.

        • Catalyst

          I know, just trying to come up with a reason. At this point they might as well give us Infinite with how many times it’s been on sale.

        • Bennijin

          Blimey. Why would you even put a digital item on sale for a higher price than it’s been previously? Let alone THE DAY BEFORE.

      • Cagateybaila

        In addition, yesterday’s sale was for ALL users. Today is for users who pay Gold membership… and they get a minor discount? O_O

        Great way to reward people’s payment and loyalty.

        • Some guy

          Gold members always get worse deals.
          I mean, at least they get free games with GWG, if they didn’t bought it on a huge sale when they were less than 5$.

          • AC130

            Yeah thinking of Dark Souls as well. And now GCI. Those games have been in dozens of sales over the past year.

          • Bennijin

            I couldn’t download things on my main account for a good chunk of last and this year and had to set up a sub-account to do so.

            I was surprised at how little I missed from Games With Gold since it was stuff I already owned anyway. And I don’t buy stuff that isn’t on sale so… yeah.

        • Bennijin

          To be fair if you were a gold member and you bought it yesterday, and now the price was lower, you’d be pretty mad too.

          That doesn’t change the fact the best thing to do would have been MAINTAINING THE SAME PRICE though.

          Gold members should be paying less for things anyway. You know, like paid members of that one other console’s service.

  • Catalyst

    FYI: Wolfenstein is the same price at Gamestop and a few other locations if you want the physical disc.

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      Wolfenstein isn’t on sale yet.

      • Catalyst

        I know, but I’m just saying that the sale price is already available at retail for those interested in physical copies.

      • Jared

        July 17 it well star.

    • Guest

      You need to read bud, they have dates listed when they prices go live :D

      • Catalyst

        Why do people think I didn’t read the dates? I was just letting people know that they could get the sale price of 33% NOW at a retailer like Gamestop in case they were interested in a physical copy?

  • k1LL3rX

    Dear Microsoft,

    How about giving us the Bioshock Infinite S E A S O N P A S S on sale for once ?!?!

    I think a lot of ppl would HIGHLY appreciate it !!!

    • Chris Hofer

      Exactly!!! Where is the a Season Pass sale????

    • Jared

      they did.

      • Chris Hofer

        According to xbldb [dot] com, the season pass has never been on sale since released on 3/25/13.

  • Some guy

    I kind of want to get old id software games, but they are free on PC because of how old they are. And PC has Brutal Doom.

    • Elan Gabriel

      The only reason to get them hon the 360 is the Achievements. If you don’t care about it, just play the PC version.

  • Elan Gabriel

    Not directly related to this sale, but remember that “Battleblock Theater” is free starting tomorrow.

  • http://twitter.com/dat_gap_doe KaosTheory

    Grab Wolfenstein right now on AMAZON for $39.99. Plants vs Zombies is $29 right now on Amazon as well.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Or wait till the 17th for the sale on Wolfenstein and pick it up for the same price digitally and buy Garden Warfare right now for $23.99.

      You make no sense to point that out IMO.

      • Bennijin

        >pick it up for the same price digitally

        Therein lies the problem.

  • Peter

    Quake arena was 5 bucks on sale before wasnt it? Make quake doom and doom 2 closer to 2.50 a piece and I might bite but at 5 bucks a piece its more of a whimsy buy and not exactly something that makes me wanna jump on it

    • Michael Burden

      Note the sale date for those – they are only on sale from the 17th through the 20th, so are not on sale yet.

    • Paul

      they are not on sale till 17 july read the small print 5 bucks is the full price. I also got caught out as well very sly as they were trying to make a bit of money on them before the sale

  • FiveMagic5

    I might actually buy Plants Vs. Zombies, has anybody else played it and if so is it worth it?

    • Peter

      Its a fun little fps for those who dont take them very seriously hardcore like cod, etc I have the x1 version and its actually kinda fun at times kinda reminds me of the gleeful innocent fun of team fortress. Dont listen to those who are quick to put it down because its cartoony and doesnt take itself seriously. Its actually pretty fun

      • ImTheMetalLord

        It’s actually a 3rd person shooter. But I do agree with you on the fun factor and not being very serious. But you will find a lot of squeakers on the game. Meaning kids.

        • GsG UpAllNight

          Agreed. Toggle mute the entire lobby once you get in. otherwise the game is really fun. I tend to play this one solo and then when friends get on I hop on Titanfall.

          • mauszx

            There are always annoying kids playing in multiplayer. But yeah, I remember once I had a teammate kid that ruin the CRAZY horde mode because he stopped playing just to send me a message, saying “we should play some time”….. Oh and he was the sunflower and went all commando all the time. I had to revive him like 7 times.

        • Peter

          Yes okay be tecnical about perspective.

          • AaronionRings

            Being technical has nothing to do with it. Third person and first person are entirely different perspectives, they’re not even close to being the same thing.

          • Peter

            Sigh okay your right. Just saying even given its 3rd perspective it still handles like a 1st one given the controls and feel. It doesnt control/feel like say gears of war and more like a fps. Hook up a cronus max with mouse and kb and it feels right at home

            Whatever still a decent first sorry third person shooter

    • Albatross

      I bought it when it came out with not many expectations and it is now by far my most played xbox one game. Definitely worth the 24$. Plenty of unlockables, do not be fooled by the microtransactions in the game (all you can pay for is tokens, which is essentially EXP). Plenty of maps and modes that are updated for free. It is a class based game (think TF2), but with one team of zombies and one of plants. Third person shooter. The graphics are gorgeous. Keep in mind it is similar to titanfall in that it is online matches only except one mode. Very fun game.

      • Peter

        Yeah agreed good game modes are kinda limited but if you come in with realistic expectations expecting a light mp shooter

    • mauszx

      It’s probably the best Xbox exclusive, well time exclusive because I heard it’s coming to PS3 and PS3. Good game.

  • Peter

    Silly me yeah those deals havent started yet. Sure I guess I’ll bite at 2.50 a piece for those oldies

  • bloody

    here we go again Bioshock -_-”

    why the hell is B.I. more expensive than yesterday? Is it because gold members should pay more than silver ones?

    I hope MS rumours about big layoff to hit the company starts by the xbox live team, particularly the ones responsable for the “deals”. You guys are doing a TERRIBLE job and only a few sheep around here will miss You all.

    • Jay Rivera

      It’s more expensive now because yesterday it was part of the Ultimate Sales….. now it’s just a regular sale, simple as that..

      • Guerrero Ultimo

        And it isn’t like “gold members should pay more”. I am pretty sure gold members were not excluded from those deals.

    • Ross Kemp

      Well said .
      TERRIBLE JOB…….incase you missed it first time around .

    • mauszx

      Well at least have the benefit of the DLC.

  • BentleyTheBrain

    Does anyone know when Defiance Free to Play comes out for Xbox? I heard it was coming out July 15th which is today. However I haven’t heard much about it.

    • Jay Rivera

      Today is the Ps3 date, there’s been no release date set for the 360 version…. but I’d just advise you to go to Gamestop and just buy it used for $5…. better than dealing with all the typical Free To Play hassle.

    • Bennijin

      Microsoft don’t like other companies doing Free to Play (hence why all Namco’s F2P games and Tecmo’s DOA5U Core Fighters are PS3 only) so possibly never.

      • BentleyTheBrain

        They said they delayed it on both consoles

  • Ross Kemp

    MS layoffs……….I don’t like to see anybody to get laid off from a job………..but the xbox live team must be sweating like crazy .

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      maybe it is just a program running it that just randomly throws up sales. there is no way a “team” is needed to come up with these “sales.”

    • Some guy

      It’s the marketting team that’s getting fired, nothing of value is lost.

    • Nick Peck

      The team is fine, just some marketing people they obviously no longer need (at least the positions).

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    sometimes when i see these deals i can hear Woody the Woodpecker laughing.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      yes.

    • Bennijin

      Mine’s a bit of a cacophany of Woody, Larry the Loafer, Sweep (from Sooty) and Basil Brush. BOOM BOOM!

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        you just blew my mind.

  • BentleyTheBrain

    Honestly I’m not surprised lol

  • Jose Medina

    do people still play quake arena?

    • Frogjerky

      Nobody was playing it when it originally released…

    • tru

      They should be.

  • Giovanni M. Gaspar

    FINALLY. Garden Warface 40% . THANK YOU!

  • Beano

    Guess they don’t need to make money this week

  • Jose Medina

    price drops.

    Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 $59.99 => $29.99
    Injustice: Gods Among Us $29.99 => $19.99
    The LEGO® Movie Videogame $49.99 => $39.99

    • Peter

      Thanks most of us are already aware of xbldb by now

  • deadbox102

    Regardless of how upset I get with Xbox, it is still my preferred console and I don’t want to see anyone at Microsoft lose their job.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      i can’t say the same. if i didn’t do my job well i would be fired.

      • deadbox102

        You obviously don’t work for the government.

        • Nick Peck

          LOL, very well put. Sad but 100% true!

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          touche.

  • ImTheMetalLord

    “Microsoft (MSFT) is reportedly preparing for its biggest round of layoffs in five years. Bloomberg reports Microsoft is making the cuts to integrate and slim down after acquiring Nokia’s handset unit. Sources tell Bloomberg the round of layoffs could be more than the 5,800 jobs the company cut in 2009. The cuts could be announced this week.”

    Its due to an acquisition. This is normal people.

    • deadbox102

      I understand it’s normal, but that’s still no comfort to those getting the pink slip.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Just because they are eliminating jobs doesn’t mean they are firing employees. Lots if not most of the employees will be able to move within the company if they choose. I’ve been through this with a large bank before. You can even take a job that’s not as high up as yours and keep your pay. I’m sure a company like MS has at least 6000 job openings that need filled so eliminating 6000 jobs isn’t that big a deal.

        • Nick Peck

          ^This. Some people will probably get let go but they have a lot of overlapping departments due to integrating Nokia into the company so yah, they need to clean up ship a bit. Hopefully most of the people will have the option to stay but switch positions though.

          Nature of the beast, just how it goes with big and small companies alike. Once winter rolls around I always have the fun job of laying people off :(

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      they took our jobs!

  • Digiadam

    That Wolfenstein deal is awful.

    Run down to Walmart this week before Friday and you can get it for 39.95cdn ( or whatever that translates into for your local currency )

    • ImTheMetalLord

      That IS the price it will be when the sale starts on the 17th.

  • Digiadam

    That Wolfenstein deal is awful.

    Run down to Walmart this week before Friday and you can get it for 39.95cdn ( or whatever that translates into for your local currency )

  • cortez

    Wow! talk about a cold slap to the groin

    • Digiadam

      LOL!!! Thanks for that……colorful metaphor.

  • mauszx

    The only thing I’m asking for is a sale on the OMEGA dlc for ME3, after that I can be happy.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Wouldn’t it be great if they did a “Take 33% (or whatever % they choose) off of one game or DLC of your choice?

      • mauszx

        Yeah, but that is too good to be true. Guess I have to wait one more week haha.

    • Paris Vaunter

      It’s weird how Mass Effect never releases Game of the Year editions especially in the case of ME3 where most of that dlc is pivotal to the overall story.

      • mauszx

        Well they release the trilogy package which I think it includes the DLC but only for ME and ME2. So yeah, what is really weird is that Sony had a sale on everything of Mass Effect a few weeks ago, it’s weird because I always thought that microsoft and EA had a better business relationship .

        • Peter

          Isnt there going to be a trilogy collection supposedly being released for x1 and ps4 on the way? Not sure if all the dlc will be included though

          • Paris Vaunter

            There’s no dlc included in the current Mass Effect trilogy collection which is a shame because the ME2 dlc is awesome also!

          • mauszx

            Really? I thought it had included the dlc for the first 2 games.

          • Alex Tran

            PS3’s Mass Effect Trilogy Edition comes with DLC from the first two games. Xbox 360’s comes with only DLC from the first game.

          • cortez

            especially the lair of the shadow broker dlc

  • thesnyke

    Its so funny that bio infinite was on sale yesterday for 10 bucks and they raised the sale price to 13 bucks.

  • mauszx

    I was pointing out yesterday that sales on microsoft sometimes got annoying because we have seen over and over again how GTA IV, COD Ghost and NBA 2k14 got into a sale a lot and that was ridiculous, having them on sale even twice in a month, and every month at least once. Guess they listened and did the same thing with bioshock infinite, jajaja oh well.

    • Peter

      Ms is the king of recycled deja vu sales. Oh well at least theres never truly the feeling you really missed out on a epic deal since most repeat often given time. Shame that given the 360’s huge library that even with ms’s size and pull that they cant pull better more varied deals jnstead of just being lazy and repeating them all the time.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        I think they see a spike in sales every time they put certain games on sale and that is why they keep recycling them. And not everyone is as anal retentive as the few hundred of us that are on here and on top of the sales all the time. But hey even I have passed on things then picked them up later and was thankful they went back on sale.

        I agree it would be nice to see more things on sale.

        • Peter

          Yeah dont mind repeats for those that didnt get a chance. Its when its mainly repeats all the time with very little variety. The 360 has such a huge and varied library as far as consoles are concerned. When you start seeing stuff and you roll your eyes and go yet again at the expense of anything new or different that it gets annoying

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

          I agree….I tend to procrastinate and miss some deals so I’m glad they put some of them on again but like you I would like to see some more variety.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          yep. it is all figures and no thought. oh well. more money for gamefly.

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

            I wish Gamefly was available here in Canada, I would’ve picked up BF4

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            you know, it’s hard to believe it is not available in Canada. i know it is available in the uk and the states. must be politics or something.

          • Gazmaster3D

            Gamefly uk only sells downloadable pc and Mac games, no rental. Only 1 company does rentals in the uk now and that’s Boomerang games and they have tiny stock.

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

            The nearest thing to Gamefly is EBgames which is not as good from the pricing I’ve seen

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            there is a blowout sale on gamefly right now and bf4 is $8.

  • King

    *fetal position*

  • Paris Vaunter

    Hey everyone just a friendly reminder that you can download the Battleblock Theater demo today so it’ll be easier & peasier for unlocking the full game tomorrow.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Good advice. Doing that now.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Man I need to make room…..it’s over 1GB. Grrrrr this space limitation is driving me nuts!!!

        • Peter

          Meanwhile ms is conspicously quiet off in the corner counting its cash from selling overpriced/undersized internal drives. Knowing full well it purposely gimped external at a paltry 32 as a sad joke on us.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            How dare they try to be as profitable as possible. (sarcasm)

          • ElektroDragon

            If they really wanted to count cash, they’d make a larger than 320GB hard drive for the 360.

            I would spend over $200 on a bigger than 320GB hard drive right now. It’s a travesty. Can’t even have any games installed to the hard drive anymore. There’s just no room. And this is with 2 32GB drives attached too.

            But MS doesn’t care at all.

          • Nick Peck

            If you aren’t lazy you can find those same drivers very cheap. Newegg / ebay had some 320gb HD’s for the slims for like $40-50 awhile back. You just need to look around. But I do agree, MS really should have raised the external limit on the 360.

  • Lloytron

    Some nice games on sale for the Xbox One there! shame I already bought them! Next time, please consult with me first, cheers :D

    • Senses Failed

      I bought wolfy last week. Swing and a miss!

  • MURD3R HE WROTE

    Great deals on xbox one. Thanks ms.

    • TheSchwartz

      This morning when I was turning on the news I checked quick to see the deals. Pleasantly surprised for once and grabbed PvZ.

      • MURD3R HE WROTE

        Same. Bought pvz first thing.

        • FiveMagic5

          Is it worth it t

          • MURD3R HE WROTE

            At that price absolutely. All dlc on pvz is free except if you want more coinage faster.

      • FiveMagic5

        Is it worth it?

  • Mikael Soltaniha

    How come downloadable games are way more expensive than physical game discs? I mean, you have DRM and you skip the whole deal with shipping and manufacturing, shouldn’t they be less expensive? Bioshock Infinite is €14, but if I was to order a copy of it, it’d cost me €18. I mean, considering it’s 57% off, it would make sense if it was like €5-6..

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      it’s like french fries. restaurants buy them for 15 cents by the pound and sell them at $2 for a not even a quarter of that. it’s all about the mooonay.

      • Mikael Soltaniha

        No surprise there.. doesn’t have anything to do with MS, it’s kind of a general money-hungry company-thing.

        • Nick Peck

          Well considering companies need to make a profit to stay in business lol. Better complain to every store you go to because they are making money off of every item you buy. Unless you are a thief that is :D

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    just to add something positive. the new wolfentstein has such a great story. it is a great game that is worth a playthrough.

    • Nick Peck

      Agreed, fun game and was much better than I though it would be.

      • Gazmaster3D

        Great fun whilst it lasts but it can be done in a weekend, but what a weekend!

  • Peter

    Yawn nothing new here for me already got all the bioshock stuff. Waiting on the 17th to pick up those older id stuff. Ms should have more sales for like a buck or two kinda like psns recent flash sale

    • Marcus Roof

      what’s magical about the 17th regarding id?

      • Gazmaster3D

        Quakecon and when those games go on sale.

        • maxy

          What’s Quakecon?

          • Gazmaster3D

            Source Wikipedia:

            QuakeCon is a yearly convention held by ZeniMax Media to celebrate and promote the major franchises of id Software and other studios owned by ZeniMax. It includes a large, paid, bring-your-own-computer (BYOC) computer gaming event with a competitive tournament held every year in Dallas, Texas, USA. The event, which is named after id Software’s game Quake, sees thousands of gamers from all over the world attend every year to celebrate the company’s gaming dynasty

          • maxy

            Oh thank you so much! :))

  • Marcus Roof

    paid $7.98 for Burial at Sea pt 1 earlier this year (and I thought that was too much as I paid $10.53 for BioShock Infinite itself…) Can’t justify paying $10.04 for pt 2…

    • Mikael Soltaniha

      I bought the season pass. I think it’s 100% worth it if you’re a fan. PS. you HAVE to had played through Bioshock 1 + 2.

      • mauszx

        Just 1 actually.

        • cortez

          plus it only applies to the burial at sea episodes

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      part 2 is actually good where as part 1 was meh.

  • Professor Oak

    At first I thought, why can’t Doom 3 BFG be on sale, then I realized, it is not on Demand

    • ImTheMetalLord

      On Amazon it’s $19.99 and it includes DOOM, DOOM II, DOOM 3, and DOOM 3: Resurrection of Evil, as well as the “Lost Mission”

      I think I’m going to pick that up on payday. Thanks for mentioning it.

      • Professor Oak

        I bought it on steam for $5, unfortunately, it does not want to run on my laptop

      • Peter

        20? A short while ago they were selling it for 10 bucks when I grabbed it up hardcopy at bestbuy.

        Both include doom 1 and 2 but might pick up the standalone digital versions. Hate pulling bfg out waiting for it to load up and having it switch over to doom1 or 2

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

        Bought the BFG Edition a while ago, loved it.

    • Does Not Equal

      I’m both surprised and disappointed that it wasn’t on demand; I checked a few weeks back, myself.

      • Ross Kemp

        That’s fascinating .

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          i love your determination to copy his former comments though i usually agreed with what he said even on my own comments. i love this blog as you can tell with me commenting on every freaking comment.

          • Does Not Equal

            Worse — he’s copying someone who was copying my remarks.

  • BlinkFandango

    I finally picked up the last DLC for Bioshock Infinite after not purchasing anything during the so called “ultimate” sale. PvZ is a good deal too, but I already own it. I’ll hold off on Wolfenstein till it is around $20.

    Something has to be done about the pricing for Xbox One digital games though. I could have picked up AC IV: Black Flag for $10 new multiple times and it is still $60 in the store. Same with BF4 (I’ve seen it for around $15 new for a physical copy) and still $60 in the store. At the very least they’ll drop it when the new games in the same franchise come out this year, but it’d be nice if the prices dropped somewhat reasonably over time.

  • ElektroDragon

    Come on! Crimson Dragon sale and Dragon Age II DLC sale already!

    • Nick Peck

      I know you said you aren’t sure about Crimson Dragon, but that game is worth every penny. I still play it and need to knock out a few of the new cheevos they added in recently.

      I really hope they can do a full on release (ie: AAA title) of Crimson Dragon so we can see what they can really do with the series. However I may be a bit biased as I LOVED the original Saturn games, as well as the Xbox game. I am a fan of the series no doubt (of course the old stuff being Panzer Dragoon in name).

      I really wish Sega would give these guys the rights to the name / franchise since they obviously plan on never using it again :( But anyways, fun game if you are into this genre.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        I think you are biased but i liked the Panzer games as well, back then. CD is an on rails game basically that was a cash grab by the devs for stupid people like me who bought everything x1 had at the beginning.

      • Brian

        I played CD at the X1 event in October and I put it down after 5 minutes. Way too on rails for me.

  • Stinkypelmet

    And again I’ll be passing on these “deals”. Seriously, Bioshock and Bioshock 2 still 12.50 each after 75% off. Nope. No thankyou. Picked up Bioshock Infinite during the Steam sale for cheaper than that. Digital prices (particularly in Australia) need a massive overhaul. The arcade titles are usually price-matched to the US, why not GoD?

    • Brian

      what? They’re $5 each.

      • Jared

        if you Lave in Australia Can you not Read dum not.

        • Brian

          regardless, 75% is 75%. It’s universal. Don’t buy digital if Australia prices are high. Just get a used copy.

          • Stinkypelmet

            Just get a used copy? Wow, thanks for your advice. Would never considered that. I feel so much more enlightened.

          • Brian

            seems like you hadn’t considered it if you’re worrying about this.

      • Stinkypelmet

        Not in Australia they’re not.

  • Anubis316

    I really like these deals, they are not amazing, but they are ok. However yea Bioshock infinite goes on sale all the time now it seems. I bet they make it a free GwG in this year.

  • Guest

    when do these start for Gold members?

    • Nick Peck

      Ok, this is how an article works:

      Title Heading (ie. name of the article)
      ——————————————-
      Words (meat of the story): here things are explained and information is given, such as dates of when the sale starts for gold members.
      ——————————————-
      Comments section: Usually the first place people go after they see the article title and skip the words (meat of the story) section. You might want to read said section before coming here.

      Hope this helps :p

      If I reply to your post will you bother to read it? I suspect not.

  • Jared

    Think god i am playing destiny this week. Beta.

    • King

      lol right about that.

    • maxy

      God isn’t thinking.

  • Jared

    Xbox 360 Ultimate Games Sale Final Update BIOSHOCK INFINITE
    Bioshock Infinite and again this week for DOTW Again

  • Elan Gabriel

    Hmm… I just noticed Wolfenstein is 45GB. That would be a very heavy download.

    • Jared

      and update patch for it as well.

    • King

      …Oh My…Why is it such a large download?

      • TheSchwartz

        For all the awesomness

      • CoMaestro

        What I heard was that mostly the size is like that because the audio files aren’t compressed, which would make it easier to run on the CPU (They did that on all platforms, please don’t start a console war here).

        • King

          That’s understandable,would make sense I guess.

      • Some guy

        it’s made with the id Tech 5 engine which use mega textures.
        Instead of repeting the same textures for everything it’s 100% hand made and allow more details.
        The side effect of that is the size and that 45GB doesn’t include high resolution textures so stuff smaller object like pipes and phones looks like garbage.

        • cortez

          but i gotta say Rage was pretty crisp. damn i love the engine and enemy animations

          • Some guy

            Rage was blurry, phones and fences looks terrible.
            I mean, the game before release was 1TB and the release is 25GB, of course some stuff look terrible.
            That said, yea I loved the engine and animations too, I just wish there was more to do in Rage.

          • Brian

            you’re really into phone pixels, huh?

        • King

          Thanks for clearing that up for me Sir. appreciate it.

    • Nick King

      Oh yes it’s a massive download plus the 7gb patch.

  • Paulo Lopes

    Cool to have Doom and Doom 2, those rarely show up here, I would have liked to also see Duke Nukem 3D there. Never saw it with a sale.

    • Peter

      Second the older dukes

    • Michael Burden

      DN3D has been on sale at least once in the past – otherwise I would not have bought it.

      • Paulo Lopes

        Actually going through xbldb, DN3D has been twice in 2010 and once in 2011, after that nothing, so I wouldnt mind to have it again for a week

    • Brian

      isn’t Duke 3D taken down? I swore it was.
