  • jordan jones

    really good discount here glad to see some finally for x1

  • liljrSanchez

    Unobtainable achievements in ‘Fight Night Champion’ for all you completionists

    • Jorge Garza

      Still a sweet great game. The next FIght Night game will be an instant buy for me and I will ask my girlfriend a week off to play as much as I can.

      • Gazmaster3D

        Loves me some boxing and I really hope there is another Fight Night.

    • ryder4life22187

      I am amazed people still care for achievements or trophies. Guess i’m the odd one out most of the time that get the enjoyment of seeing the end credits scroll and calling it a day,

      • William Montgomery

        I really enjoy achievements as they encourage me to play a game in ways that I might not otherwise. That said, I’m not one that goes crazy if I don’t have them all. Except for Condemned, 970 total still annoys me.

      • GamerResentment

        I’m with William on this one. I don’t love achievements but I’ll beat a game, leave it alone for a while, then come back and maybe try the achievements. Just gives some more replayability to the game for me. Just a small reason to go back. That’s why I hate progression achievements. I want those gone and instead have ones that require us to be creative so we have to play “outside the box” to get them.

  • jeanpolbac

    When is the Xbox One August update going to be released? We are already almost half way through the month.

    • CaptainCaleb

      In August.

      • jeanpolbac

        Very amusing response. The reason I asked the question is because if you looked at the previous updates, they were mostly released in the first week of each month. Here we are headed into the third week and still nothing.

        • digitallife

          Still having bug fixes, you’ll get it before the month ends. Trust me you didn’t want it the way it was originally…

        • evilfangs .

          Ask someone here to invite you to the beta program. No waiting for these updates then.

          • jeanpolbac

            I have been “invited” but have never received an email from Microsoft. I don’t know how real that “invite” was. I’ll just wait patiently for an invite or for the real update to come out

          • evilfangs .

            Add me and I’ll invite you right now if you want? gt / evilfangs

          • jeanpolbac

            Just added you. Thanks!

          • evilfangs .

            Ok I’ve just sent the invite, I believe it takes two days to get the invite.

          • jeanpolbac

            Thanks! I’ll be on the lookout!

  • David Monzon

    Is Ground Zeroes worth 15$??

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      no.

    • xPutNameHerex

      I’m quite sure it will come with Phantom Pain in the end, so just save your money til then. Worst comes to worse, it will be dirt cheap by then.

      • BlinkFandango

        Uh, the whole point of the game is to get a feel for MGS on next gen systems before the main game comes out.

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      I say hell yes. I got a ton of enjoyment out of It. It was great getting to play with the new mgs mechanics, and all the side missions are really fun and offer a great variety of types of missions. 15 dollars is the perfect price for this experience in my opinion though I did buy this on day one with no regrets.

    • Mando44646

      if you dont mind paying for a demo instead of waiting for the full game

    • Rafa

      It is you get at least 20 hours with side missions. I liked it a lot definitely worth it.

  • Wildattorney

    Excellent! I’ve been wanting to dance to “Gangnam Style,” or maybe that was Gungan Style I wanted to try… I get them confused.

    • majorasshole

      George Lucas go home… You’re drunk

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    I seriously can’t get over all the hate for xbox I’ve been seeing on comment sections and stuff since yesterday. It really blows my mind how people have held this hate for so long, they made some bad moves in the very early days of xbox ones reveal but since then and since Phil Spencer they’ve been doing nothing but amazing things for their fans and to show other gamers just how great this platform really is.. yet people just seem to have these blinders on and won’t accept that the Xbox one is turning into one hell of a machine, the list of exclusives just keeps piling up, and great ones at that.. the console updates just keep coming with an amazing one for all the media support on its way… I guess I’m just annoyed when I see people saying Sony killed xbox at gamescom when everything I’ve watched shows the complete opposite.. ahh I’m just going to have to stay away from stupid comment sections because it really is starting to get to me lol… I love my ps4 as well but man I can clearly see just how awesome xbox is becoming… it’s like it’s cool for these people to hate on Xbox these days. Oh well at least I’m going to get to enjoy all their great games. I just hope the console starts to sell much better.

    • Rupert Oldcorn

      Sony fanboys have always been pretty venomous – think of it this way they’ve had 8 years of repressed hating Microsoft with no opportunity to vent, now they’re taking any victory real or perceived and bathing in it.

      • GamerResentment

        Even the presenters at the E3 were venomous. MS was saying nice or neutral things about themselves and PS while Sony was “we are better and better and better.” It’s annoying because it’s how one of my friends is with android/ios. One is superior for one dumb reason alone and blah blah I’m ignoring facts kinda person.

    • Mando44646

      where are you seeing hate? I dont see any such things here

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Oh not talking about here dude.. just on gaming sites that I frequent.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        The one I was reading last was the game spot article about Phil Spencer acknowledging they are the underdog.. the comments were brutal.

    • Dylan

      Offtopic:

      Since you said you have a PS4, go download “P.T.”. Seriously, do it now. It’s a free teaser trailer/demo. Features amazing game design and it’s terrifying.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Oh man I know I’m so pumped to play it.. I’m away at work until tomorrow but when I get home its the first thing I’m doing haha.. it’s weird I haven’t seen any announcements regarding If it’s exclusive or not.. I’m guessing it isn’t because Sony probably would have shouted it pretty loud if so

        • Dylan

          Honestly, I hope it isn’t. The demo/interactive trailer is, but I hope the real game isn’t.

          Everyone should be able to experience upcoming game. I’m so excited. What a surprise, it was a megaton bomb of an announcement.

        • Dylan

          New Polygon article about the new game.

          “Originally, we were thinking of making a game that would make you pee your pants,” Kojima said at Gamescom today. But after further discussions with del Toro, Kojima said, “we are aiming for a game that will make you **** your pants.”

          He also said the limited edition should come with a new pair of pants and he doesn’t care if the scares make people turn it off. They’re going 100%

          This is my number 1 most anticipated game now.

          • evilfangs .

            Oh I needed them pants, and I did turn the game off because I was so scared.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Haha really? Oh man I can’t wait to play this.

          • evilfangs .

            Just don’t play it how I played it. In the dark wearing my Trittron 7.1 Surround sound headset. Never doing that again.

            Very scary for me :(

    • Beano

      The thing that will make me HATE HATE HATE Xbox is if they cut off the 360 in eight years, and leave everyone pissing in the wind and losing the ability to play their owned games. MS needs to do what Steam does…COMMIT to people always being able to have access to their bought games. If that means dealing with 360 gamertags for 20+ years, so be it.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        I don’t really know what you’re talking about.. of course you’ll always be able to play your owned xbox 360 games even when they stop supporting the platform.. as for online games, well that has nothing to do with Microsoft, it’s upto the publishers of the game to decide how long they want to host servers for the games. Xbox only has control over the games they own… as for in the future with xbox one it will be a little different since Microsoft is hosting a lot of the dedicated servers for the games being elevated.

        • Beano

          I just saw your response, so I made a new subject in the new digital code post.

      • Gazmaster3D

        If the digital game license is on your consoles HD you’re fine.

        • Beano

          I just saw your response, so I made a new subject in the new digital code post

    • majorasshole

      Great games such as: halo, a different halo, more halo, halo tv, halo tv show, and sunset overdrive…

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Yeah they definitely don’t have sunset overdrive master chief collection, quantum break, halo 5, gears of war, forza horizon 2, tomb raider, phantom dust, crackdown, fable.. that’s a lot more exclusives than any other of the consoles have right now.

        • majorasshole

          I said sunset over drive, I said halo alot, every console has a racing game, tomb raider is timed exclusive, never heard of phantom dust, I’m not buying a console to get crackdown and fable 2 was the only good one… I don’t care for exclusives but it seems they’re putting all their eggs in one halo… compared to the 360 the xbone is doing awful…

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Actually by numbers compared to the 360 it’s doing quite a bit better.. but I guess in Internet land you can say anything you want and it be true. So do your thing

          • majorasshole

            “By March 2008, the Xbox 360 had reached a software attach rate of 7.5 games per console in the US” – wikipedia on history of 7th gen consoles. (Xbone attach rate is 2.6 according to NPD from march and analysts predict it could go so high as 3.5). “At the end of first half of 2007, the console stabilized at 11.6 million units shipped” wiki from before… Xbox one has sold roughly 5 million units idk which is accurate some say 5 mil shipped some say 5 mil sold and they’re a couple weeks old… If anyone is making stuff up on the internet it’s you…

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Are you serious? Hahaha March 2008 and first half of 2007? You do realize that the 360 was released in 2005 right? So you’re comparing a few years sales of the 360 to 9 month of the Xbox one. Just because you’re using the same month with March doesn’t mean it’s the same amount of time.. haha oh Man some people blow my mind.

          • majorasshole

            360 was released nov 22 05 Xbone released Nov 22 ’13… after 1.5 years the 360 reached 11 mil (Halo 3 didn’t come out yet) after 9 months the xbone is at 5 mil (halo 5 hasn’t come out yet)
            the xbone has 9 months to double their sales… The attach rate of the 360 is record breaking and the attach rate of the xbone is lackluster… If you have a 1 to 1 ratio that shows the xbone is doing better I’d love to see it…

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Come back in March after the Xbox releases in 29 more countries next month and releases exclusives like sunset overdrive, master chief collection with halo 5 beta and the cod themed xbox one with a 1 TB had drive and I guarantee the console is doing just great.. just like it is now.

            I’ll never understand people who WANT to see another console do bad. I understand people wanting the ps4 to do great, because I’m one of them but just because you like that console it just boggles my mind that you people wish for the competition to do badly. It’s sad.

          • majorasshole

            my first console was the original xbox and I bought a 360 before my first job saving christmas and birthday money (I have not purchased any other console)… I should love the xbone but they’ve made mistake after mistake… I hope it does well but I don’t think it will… The only market xbox succeeds in is the U.S. and Europe… Sunset overdrive wont sell units but I’d like to play it, master cheif and halo will probably sell units but halo 4 burned me and I already own all the halos… You obviously have decided your allegiances and that’s great, but your optimism is ungrounded…

  • Cagateybaila

    I asked it in another post, but… is Risen 1 worth it?

    I recently bought Risen 2: Dark Waters (despite all bad references) from Amazon and I haven’t played it yet. Is it recommended to play Risen first?

    P.D.: At least this week they put different games (no NBA, no CoD, no Bioshock).

  • Mando44646

    meh nothing for me. Thats a good price for Titanfall though for those who dont have it! $60 is far too much for half a game (i.e. only multiplayer) but this is a good price I think – and what it should have launched at

    • digitallife

      I happily paid sixty for it and got my sixty dollars worth out of it….

  • sergio meza

    I can get lighting returns disc version for that, im always going to prefer disc to digital.

    • ryder4life22187

      I picked up the disc version a couple of months after it was out for 27

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      I’m with you on that one. I’m a big collector though so I can’t see me switching to digital anytime soon.

  • Reinier Martinez

    I wonder why they have FF XIII-2 and Lighting Returns as GOD but not FF XIII, I mean, I have the original game on disc but I would love to have the 3 of them as digital versions. :)

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      Really, why? You’d pay for the original again even though you already own it just to have it digital? I don’t get it.

      • Legion

        I actually did that for the first Mass Effect game. Got it $5 digital and the convenience of it (and re-excitement to play it again from the purchase) was totally worth it.

  • Jacob Kopta

    The xb1 is awesome… I love it more than my 360!!! Especially the new controller and the new features that the Kinect enables. Can’t wait for my freind to come up with the $$$ to get it. So many people act like it is so horrible. Don’t get why, i liked the whole online thing and product share etc. I am always online anyways. Who wants to trade games in and get ripped off not me. Hopefully sooner or later the games u digitally buy will always be transfer over to the future Gen!!! Hopefully they make future systems similar enough to do so!!!!

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

      The only thing I don’t like about the controller is how fragile the sticks feel. I dropped mine once, now the right stick has problems. The XB1 sticks also don’t feel as great as the 360 sticks when worn in.
      Other than that, it’s pretty much perfect. The triggers are amazing.

    • GamerResentment

      People don’t hate the console as much as the policies that almost came with it. People are still burnt about ms even thinking it was ok. I’m impartial to either console right now. If Mirrors Edge 2 is an Exclusive, that console gets my money even if it’s the original Wii lol

      • Nick King

        It was ok, digital gaming is the future I don’t know why people can’t see that.

        • GamerResentment

          Because with digital you never actually own anything. Say xbox service goes down tomorrow for the 360 and you had deleted a bunch of games to make room for some others. Yeah you planned to redownload the other games later but now you can’t because the service you get them from is gone. Not to mention hard drives are too expensive and too limited on space to be the future. Granted I do have about 700gb of digital games from the market place (2 HDD) but I still don’t see it being the future. While it’s no where near as bad as online only games, with digital, your sort of in the hands if the individual who has control over the on/off switch.

  • ImTheMetalLord

    I picked up Gyromancer (been on my radar for a long time and only wish it was cheaper but I’m not gonna miss it for 2 bucks) and thinking about getting both Risen and Risen 2. Anyone have anything to say about those RPG’s? Worth the price?

    • Cagateybaila

      Same question about Risen 1 here.

      • Jason Lafitte

        I played risen 2 for 5 minutes before ejecting it, I hated the controls and the way my character moved.

        • ImTheMetalLord

          This brings a couple of questions to mind then. Do you play RPG’s? Most RPG’s do have a quirky way to more around…great example of that is the Fallout games. I’m also wondering if you only like to play games that feel the same and don’t take the time to get to know them or was it just this one that was so bad you couldn’t give it more than 2-5 minutes?

          • GamerResentment

            I heard the games are good with bad qualities like clunky controls and bad combat systems. So I would put it in the same plane as maybe like Alice Madness Returns where it has it’s moments you’ll enjoy if your willing to sit through the muck.

    • Beano

      I played plenty of Gyro…pretty cool.

  • LeoKurtz

    Awesome week to own a Xbox One.

    Finally I can buy Ground Zeroes for it’s real value.
    And I guess there is no better time to download the TItanfall DLC

    • Rafa

      Gamestop had it 9.99 pre-owned like a month ago. I got it then.

  • Jason Lafitte

    as someone who has hated the multiplayer in every COD game, is there any point in me trying titanfall?

    • A. J.

      Probably not. While it is very different, it feels like it has the same DNA. This is likely because it was made by a lot of the same people who made COD4: MW. I think TItanfall is great, but it may not be up your alley.

    • digitallife

      Redbox it and try it for yourself. I’d say half of my fellow COD players on my friends list like it and half don’t like it. I personally enjoy it immensely. It takes a bit of getting used to. Start out with attrition first before venturing into other gme modes. The part that sucks for people picking up now is that you in likelihood will end up playing on a team of randoms who will make it a tall task to pull of a win versus groups of friends.

    • Nick King

      I wouldn’t bother, I bought it when it was first on sale a few weeks ago and I’ve played it once. It’s COD with robots and mega jumps.

    • Legion

      I like CoD multiplayer, but I only played a few hours MW3-Ghosts.
      My issue was that I felt I never had an advantage in every lobby I was in.

      Whether I’m actually better at Titanfall, or they have found a better way to equalize things, I’m not sure, but I have enjoyed it way more than any CoD multiplayer mode.

      But the gameplay itself is extremely similar. Just a tad bit more mobility plus giant robots. I’d rent it first if you’re unsure.

    • LeoKurtz

      I hate COD multiplayer, but I´m having a blast in Titanfall.

      I feel super cool everytime that I use my titan…

  • Bennijin

    Fun fact, Yosumin released on the 26th of May 2009 and this is the first time it has ever been on sale.

    That’s five years, two months and seventeen days from release to temporary price cut.

  • Steven Heuer

    So right now Forza Horizon season pass is 60% off from what it was (now $19.99). Is that a sale or is that a new permanent price?

    • ImTheMetalLord

      That looks like a price drop to me but sometimes there are things that get a price drop then get a price increase without a sale involved. If you click on a game on xbldb dot com you can see a graph that will show that it happens sometimes.

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

      I’d be surprised if it’s not a permanent price drop given it costs more than the game itself.

  • digitallife

    Dying to see black flag for $20…praying to the Microsoft Gods to make it happen. Missing the songs the crew sings while sailing.

    • Rafa

      Tigerdirect had it last week, best buy was price matching. got it that way.

    • Bob G

      I got it for $9 last month from BB. Best deal ever.

      • majorasshole

        Yeah I got it for 14 several months ago after amazon price matched best buy… I would watch BB or amazon more than here…

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

      It’s only $25 on Amazon.

  • Nick King

    Great bought Titanfall in the last ‘sale’ about 3 weeks ago with only 33% off, seems it pays to wait.
    Also looks like you don’t get an additional 10% off UFC with EA Access as it’s already discounted.
    I picked up MGS yesterday though for only £12.40 :-)

  • Legion

    It’s like “here’s a portion of dlc, but we ain’t gonna give you that season pass on discount”

    re: Titanfall :(

    • Legion

      Also, does anyone know if you can purchase Xbox One add-on content from the website? I feel like it’s only available from the box.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        It is ONLY available on the console right now. Not sure they are going to change it however but this is why the Titanfall Expedition DLC shows a sale but don’t have a link.

        • Legion

          I feared as much. I was hoping someone had found a clever way to find it, but if it’s never created, there’s nothing to find.

          Have you been on your console during this sale? confirm that’s it’s just the one piece of DLC on sale and not the season pass? I’m hoping it’s just absent, but I’m not holding out hope.

          • Catalyst

            Says $6.99 for the Expedition pack on the console.

  • Guest

    Sony has announced that the
    PlayStation 4 has sold over 10 million units since it launched less than
    nine months ago in November 2013. By comparison, it took well over a
    year for both the PS3 and Xbox 360 to break 10 million units sold. The
    PS4 is undoubtedly a runaway success. Meanwhile, Microsoft still hasn’t
    released any recent sales figures for the Xbox One, suggesting the
    console
    isn’t doing all that well. Our estimates put the Xbox One at around 5
    million units sold through to customers — or about half the total sales
    of the PS4.
    According to a fateful quote by ex-Xbox chief Don Mattrick, it would
    appear
    that the PS4 has won this generation’s console war. Sony’s European
    president, Jim Ryan, twisted the knife with the following clarification
    at
    Gamescom: “Just to be clear, that’s 10 million PS4s sold through to
    consumers.” (Here he’s referring to the fact that Microsoft has only
    reported the number of Xbox Ones shipped to retailers, rather than
    actually sold to customers.)

    What this means for the
    Xbox One, though, is unclear. On the one hand, ~5 million consoles sold
    in nine months is still objectively very good — but as far as gamers,
    and more importantly developers are concerned, it still makes
    the Xbox One the loser. Just a couple of days ago, Crytek, which
    developed the Xbox One exclusive Ryse, said it’s “not 100
    percent happy with Xbox One sales right now,” and will wait for console
    sales to increase before considering a sequel. If the sales gap
    continues to widen and the Xbox One becomes an also-ran like the Wii U,
    you can certainly expect some developers to jump ship to the PS4, or at
    least be much more reticent about developing Xbox One exclusives.
    (Though,
    Microsoft did just announce that the Rise of the Tomb Raider sequel
    will be an Xbox One timed exclusive.) I think Microsoft will struggle
    to close the gap in the short term, and it doesn’t look good for the
    long term either…….

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      You’ve lost your mind dude if you honestly think xbox is going to see the same type of support from 3rd party as the wiiu. Just won’t happen. Xbox one is going to do huge numbers over the next 5 years guaranteed. Will it sell more than ps4? Probably not, but it’s still going to sell as much or more than the 360 did, I guarantee it… as for the comment crytek made, they said they’re not satisfied with RYSE sales on Xbox one, not on Xbox one sales… which I’m sure has more to do with the quality and length of ryse than it does the number of xbox ones. I’m so sick of hearing this doomsday bulls*** from people. Xbox one is selling way faster than the 360 did, it just doesn’t look as good compared to the great success the ps4 has been having mostly due to the mess ups xbox had early on… going forward it’d going to get much closer, xbox is launching in 29 countries in Sept and their list of exclusives is just piling up higher and higher. Get a grip and stop posting nonsense.

      • WARLORD

        No it’s not selling very well. XB1 is currently ahead of 360 time
        adjusted, but the last 3 months it’s been selling less than 360
        month-to-month. In other words, unless XB1 sales increase, it will fall
        under 360 time adjusted. 360 was supply constrained in its 1st year and XB1 is still struggling to stay ahead.

        Xbox One needs a serious momentum boost to keep ahead of 360. Even Wii U has been outselling XB1the last few months in global sales.

        XB1 won’t “become irrelevant” or lose 3rd party support, but it’s in danger of ending up selling less than the 360 did and possibly less than the Wii U in total sales.

        Tier 2 countries will do very little for Xbox sales. An
        extra 5-10% a month at most after the launch month. Xbox has almost no presence outside of the 13 countries they already launched in. The global picture is accurate as-is.

        The 13 countries Xbox One already launched in account for 90% of 360 sales. The remaining markets are tiny.

        September
        is going to be a mountain of crow for certain people constantly
        screaming about 72 vs 13 countries. PS4 will outsell Xbox globally in
        September, like every other month.

        • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

          It’s hilarious to me that you claim to know all of this considering Microsoft hasn’t released any solid numbers of how many exactly sold month to month in quite a while. Keep dreaming dude. There’s no way with the exclusives they have coming that the system is not going to sell like crazy in the next year

          • WARLORD

            Microsoft is gonna have to make some major sacrifices in order to win like a price drop to around $300 – $350 max price range.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Seriously that entire list is about 75 percent indie games lol.. it looks great at first glance, but when you go through them it’s just a bunch of rereleased indie ports from pc, remastered games from ps3, and a few good exclusives.

            Just off hand thinking right now xbox has sunset overdrive, master chief collection, quantum break, halo 5, gears of war, forza horizon 2, tomb raider, phantom dust, crackdown and just like Sony they have an absolute Frickin ton of indies coming that look great. Ps4 just can’t compete in that department right now.

          • WARLORD

            Once again, Microsoft money-hats another exclusive in Tomb Raider. Pretty pathetic. Microsoft and SE only pissed off a ton of loyal fans while attempting to get the very few customers willing to buy a console for a 3rd party title. That’s only a timed exclusive. Not only that, Tomb Raider sold better on Sony consoles than any other. Makes little sense to risk your fans across multiple platforms for money now. It tarnishes the brand and your fans perception of you as a
            Publisher/Developer. It also strengthens the notion that Microsoft is only paying it’s way through these console generations. Like the rich kid who tries to buy your friendship. Tomb Raider could have made one
            hell of a comeback, not nearly so now. The 10 million
            sold-through to customers is not really a big surprise. Sony has the best gaming ecosystem. Affordable PS4, PS Vita connectivity with remote play, PS Vita T.V., Project Morpheus, PS Now, PS+ across 3 separate systems and unrivaled 1st party development teams.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            You have got to be kidding me? Hahahaha! Sony invented that business practice. Are you serious dude? Sony have been doi ng that since the ps1. Going from keeping games off of dreamcast. They did it with games like grand theft auto, metal gear solid, had deals with tons of publishers.. haha oh man you actually had me going for a while but your credibility has been shot all to hell. It’s clear you’re just a Sony fan boy and Playstation can do no wrong eh.. lmao. Get a grip. This is a console war, and these things have been happening for a long long time and they sure as hell weren’t started by Microsoft.

          • WARLORD

            You do know the IP’s you used started on PlayStation long before Xbox was ever on the seen right.That just proves the point..

            Haha sorry what? I’m a fan boy because I clearly proved you terribly wrong about your stupid hypocritcal tomb raider argument? Nah sorry doesn’t work that way dude. I love my ps4 just like I’ve loved all my playststions since the first one. But I don’t have to hate on one console in order to liken another one like you do.. that my friend is the definition of a fan boy.

          • WARLORD

            Just to put some things in perspective on how weak ms console 1st party actually is:

            343 Industries – Halo series

            Kids and Lifestyle Entertainment – Xbox Fitness

            Black Tusk Studios – Gears of War series

            6 studios are dedicated to kinect (7 if you count Rare)
            5 studios are dedicated to arcade/mobile
            4 studios are dedicated to AAA games and they are the same tired old franchises we got on the 360 namely:
            halo,fable ,forza,gears
            1st party offerings are terrible…buy hey if thats your thing enjoy the same games over and over again.

            Are you seriously still talking? Noone cares what you think in case you haven’t realized that yet. With a stupid nickname like that it’s clear you’re nothing but a pathetic troll with too much time on their hands. You people will always blow my mind. I can understand wanting the ps4 to do well… I want it to do great as well. In fact I’m playing mine this very minute playing the P.T demo…. but what I don’t understand is why you weirdos feel the need to actually take time to WANT the other console, in this case xbox to fail or have horrible sales. It baffles me. Does it make your experience with your console of choice any better? No. I guess you have to put up this wall to pretend like you hate it just so you won’t think about all the great games you’re missing out on…

            oh well. Good luck with all that nonsense. I’ll just continue enjoying all platforms. Bye now. Not much point in you commenting back because I’m not going to be roped into anymore silly arguments with someone who clearly isn’t on my level intellectually.

  • Catalyst

    I feel Ground Zeroes is going to be GWG when Phantom Pain releases so I’ll hold out. Titanfall at that price is tempting, even though I played and traded it a while back. The 360 deals for once are outshined by the One.

  • ElektroDragon

    Impressive discounting Titanfall to 50% off. I almost want to get it for that price. Almost. Let’s put it this way, I played Titanfall for 4 hours on rental and felt I was done and bored. Played Destiny beta for over 8 hours, reached the level cap, and was itching for more.

    • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

      Same. I bought it though. It’s weird I loved the titan fall beta but then once I had bought the full game it got boring really fast for me. I think a big part of It is if I play a multiplayer game, I only really like to play with friends because I find when I use my mic with strangers a lot of the guys I run into are just complete ***holes or take the game way too seriously. It turns me off of that type of game big time.

    Feedback idea

    Unlimited external storage for Xbox 360 has 1,130 votes. Wish they would just fix this already, I don’t know how they can just leave it broken like it is.

    • Some guy

      That or stop banning people who want to use non official hard drive.
      I know, drop the timed exclusives and support the 360 with that money instead.

      • chris

        Yeah, and it is not like the Xbox 360 is dead. They are still supporting it and still releasing games for it. Putting a limit on how much Hard Drive space you can use is the dumbest thing you can do, it is so dumb no one else would even think to do this. We are already able to use External Hard Drives so it should not be that hard to remove this stupid limitation.

      • Guest

        They’re not being banned for using non-official harddrives. They’re being banned for modding their system. The only non-official drives that are allowed are the 500GB ones as they are digitally signed with an official security sector that got leaked.

        • Marcus Roof

          don’t those drives get artificially capped at 320gb by the software anyway? or even if they don’t, you can’t take them on Live or they’ll get banned once you do?

        • Some guy

          They need to mod their system because the 360 only work with official microsoft hard drive without modifications.
          If it was as stupid as Sony’s Original material do not steal memery card for their handhelds I could understand the limitation but it’s just a simple hard drive that anyone can buy anywhere.

    • Jan Václavík

      They wont be fixing it, because the feature is not broken – it works as advertised. Whether they decide to add new feature or rework the existing one, that’s another story.
      On a side note, I still have fat 360 with 20GB HDD (only some 13GB are available) and 64MB MU.

    • Massamo

      they can’t because usb on 360 has limits don’t really have speed for it and how file system works on it

    • ImTheMetalLord

      I feel your pain. I broke down and bought me a second 250GB Hard drive. I have the original Xbox Arcade edition that I added a 250GB HD. I now have TWO 250GB HD and TWO 32GB USB Flash drives and with all my owned digital content I have about 75GB free space total.

  • mauszx

    I know this is very selfish, but Microsoft I HAVE MONEY and I want to buy ME3 Omega DLC on a discount, because I have spent 60 dollars on the new game, and probably like 20 or 30 on dlc, spending other 20 bucks is not an option, make it ten and it’s a deal. Sony already had every piece of dlc for sale, so you have no excuse.

    • RZIBARA

      they had it on sale for $7.50 back in the spring

      • mauszx

        You are confusing Citadel DLC with Omega DLC.

          He’s correct. It was on sale for 50% early July.

      I think you have posted on the Microsoft site by mistake, you need to go and ask EA, they are the ones that set the sale prices. And like others have said, all the ME3 DLC has been on sale on XBL in the past as well.

  • Guide Line

    Microsoft, please add the “Games on Demand” versions of Bourne Conspiracy (2008) and WET (2009) in to Xbox Live base, it’s pretty good games, but now impossible to buy a retail copy of this games, so the “GoD” versions – it last hope.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      The Bourne Conspiracy and WET are not even available via digital but you can find a copy of BC new on Amazon for about $25 or for about $5 used and WET for $35 new or just under $10 used.

      It would be rare for games this old to go digital now and it wouldn’t be up to MS to do that. Instead it would be the publishers.

  • Peter

    Guys do a search on pinballfx on your consoles. Might be mistaken but looks like the core game and a few sets are already up if not mistaken. For the previous owners the tables are showing as free to get. Need to clarify this though. Looks like they are already rolling them out.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Core game is available on xbox dot com and now there is a new blog post announcing it.

      • Peter

        Yeah looks like you can start grabbing your previous tables you bought

    • majorasshole

      You say that like it’s a surprise…

    • ImTheMetalLord

      How’s that? It’s the same price you can get it for new on Amazon right now. BTW I think they are price matching the digital sale this week but I may be wrong.

      • majorasshole

        Yeah look at the title, “This weeks price matching with gold”

        • ImTheMetalLord

          Found it right next to the sarcasm bloopers.

  • WARLORD

    You go to love sales that bring the game down to the retail price of the physical copy. Should digital be cheaper..

    • Carnage Rules

      no, because “XBox go to” has value

    • Duncan

      Why should digital be cheaper? Most of the cost is in developing the game, not distributing the disc. Running a data center for electronic distribution (electricity, staffing, hardware, data traffic) costs just as much as putting a disc in a case and posting it.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        No one seems to understand or believe that on here accept a few. I’ve been making that argument for months and gave up on it. Here’s the torch you can carry it from now till when you can pass it to someone else.

        • Jon Taylor

          Digital should be cheaper, because it will never reach the second hand market and cost them potential sales..

          • ImTheMetalLord

            As long as the majority of consumers continue to purchase their games via disc instead of digital the price of digital will remain higher. Consider this. Moves and Music and even Books the digital prices dropped (although they have gone up some over time) as soon as the public embraced the digital medium. So until that happens for console games we will continue to see the pricing being like it is.

          • WARLORD

            Digital medium being embraced is a double edged sword. On one hand people say it wont happen till people embrace it, TRUE, but on the other hand people wont embrace it till thy see value in it.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Agree….look what happen with PC games…..sales where dwindling till steam came along and did some major price cuts that lead to eventually the major sale deals and now today we super low pricing on them. Same with books…it took Amazon digitizing a bunch and giving the old books away for free and offering books for the cheap digitally for them to embrace them. And of course we all know the story of Napster giving music away at first and then the lawsuit that forced them to pay for the rights to give/sell that medium and causing them to start to charge for it.

            Not sure we will ever see those type of things happen with digital console games but sometimes you have to put the cart in front of the horse. Xbox tried to do that this generation but got a major backlash once announced and had to backpedal from a completely digital console.

          • Étienne-A Beauregard

            Thing is, people with Xbox Ones should buy digital, since the prices are almost the same and if you buy a CD, you still have to fully install it on the console before playing. So it’s simpler to just buy digital instead of changing CDs every time AND occupying hard drive space.

          • ryder4life22187

            I’d rather have to change discs then ever worry if I had to delete a game for any unknown reason or HD crash. Then id have tons of GB’s to redownload instead of putting in the disc and getting an install in no time.

      • WARLORD

        Digital downloads do not require money spent on
        packaging and the blue ray/DVD disc itself. Also no transport and delivery
        costs with digital games in regards to fuel etc. Its cheaper to
        distribute a digital copy of a game than a dis.

  • Professor Oak

    I wish Activision would do a Tony Hawks Underground HD Pack, Underground 1 and 2 were my favorite games in the series. Too bad the Series is dead along side Guitar Hero. Unfortunately CoD is the only Franchise Activision has been able to keep above water

      Activision has a lot of games I would like to play but they only put cod ghosts on sale… singularity, prototype, Cod 2, and Wolfenstein. They made pro skater hd but I doubt they’re going to remaster all of them…

        TH HD was a test to see if people were really interested in remakes.

          Was playing THPS HD today, one of the 2 Arcade Titles I paid full price for on XBLA. Missed playing Underground 1 and 2, it kinda went downhill after 2, but American Wasteland was still good

        • Dave Breadner

          Which is too bad. Saying that THPS is the same as THUG is like saying Catacombs 3D is the same as Doom.

          EDIT: Correction, there is a bigger difference between THPS and THUG than there is in C3D and Doom.

    Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is not on the Xbox Store in Ireland.It has literally vanished from all existence. Searching for it won’t produce any results.

  • plnkfloydian

    I have rented 3 differnt copys of metal gear solid and every time id load up the game id see the menu background image but no actual buttons or anything to select to begin playing. Am i the only one to experience this?

  • Gareth Mee

    So I don’t get an additional discount on UFC for being an EA Access member? That’s kind of weird… well maybe they’ll put it in the vault soon because it would seem to be a bit of a snub to EA members if not… What do you EA Access members think to not getting the additional 10% discount?

    • Reece Hunt

      I haven’t used EA access, but what I’ve heard is that you have to pay a subscription fee to play not that many games on it and get 10% off new games. Is that right?. If so you might as well pay full price for the games that aren’t in the vault and cancel the subscription.

      • Gareth Mee

        Nah it is a great service though, I would never have bought Battlefield 4, Fifa 14 or Madden 25, nor peggle 2, and they’re all great games so it was more for that (and future vault games) that I got the membership but the discount not stacking for UFC is kinda weird and kind of a slap in the face for EA Access members…

  • SABZILA

    Also Forza Horizon Season Pass is 50% off.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Nothing indicates that is a “sale” just like the lower pricing on some EA sports games. This may be a permanent price decrease or a temporary price decrease. If you follow along on xbldb dot com you will find this happens quite often.

    Is metal gear worth it? I’ve heard some people say they beat it in a few hours and others say it took them significantly longer. I was a huge splintercell fan does this play similar to blacklist?

    • Professor Oak

      Metal Gear Ground Zeros can be beaten in 10 minutes if you don’t do the side missions is what i heard

    • WARLORD

      Not really worth it… The game is vary short it fells more like a demo and plays nothing like splintercell

    • itsjustme

      Ground Zeroes is meant to be a prologue mission. It takes place 1 year after the events of Peace Walker and 9 years before the events of Phantom Pain. The main mission in GZ is so short that it does feel like a demo. I’d tell you to just wait for PP to be released, but I don’t know if the GZ mission will be included. Maybe it will be a pre-order bonus. Who knows? $30 is madness, and $15 on sale is still pushing things – even for hardcore MGS fans. However, I can’t deny how fun GZ is. If you’re a MGS fan, you’ll love it. Then you’ll hate that it’s over so soon.

      • nitron1911

        ok cool i will just wait im not a die hard MGS fan i havent played since sons of liberty in my old ps2 days.

    “Don’t You Worry Child” Just Dance 2014 track for Xbox One is not Deals with Gold this week… why?

    • Professor Oak

      It is on teh list

      • David IFB

        “Don’t You Worry Child” shows as $2.99 on Xbox One store, but should be $1.79

        • ImTheMetalLord

          That one is showing $1.79 but as a gold exclusive although it does show above with an asterisk next to is which claiming it should be for gold or silver. Sounds like a goof and good catch.

          • David IFB

            I have gold membership and I bought on Xbox One Store (I don’t know for Xbox 360) four of five tracks because the fifth track not shows with 40% off… Don’t understand… Only is my problem?

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Yea sorry I don’t have an X1 to help you with that.

          • David IFB

            Don’t worry

    • Professor Oak

      Contact MS Support, nothing will be done here,

      • David IFB

        Thanks

      • David IFB

        MS Support has solved my question: “Don’t You Worry Child” is Deals with Gold only for Xbox 360

  • http://www.goninteractive.com Gon’Interactive

    titanfall at 50%, maybe now it’s the time i hop in. any good game coming out soon ?

  • Lucky13X

    Went ahead and bought Metal Gear for $15. I finish the main game in less than an hour. This only becomes worth it at that original $30 to $40 price if you try for S ranking and do all side missions for achievements, which will take you DAYS.
