    You can buy a used copies of both of these games on Amazon for about $5 shipped. Why would anyone buy a DLC version (that you can’t share or re-sell) for three times that much?

    @tabicat – I’m with you on this one, xbox original games are a waste and extremely overpriced.

    I agree, Xbox Originals are too expensive for the exact version you get on disc for a fraction of the cost, can lend to a mate or resell.

    There has been the cry for achievements (which would be nice), but if they took the effort to make the Xbox Guide work correctly so it showed you online to friends (so you can play while you wait for people to come online), be able to send/receive messages, and download from the marketplace, it would make these titles worthwhile.

    Why put these games out via DLC, when there is not enough space on harddrive to keep them. Like, i am having to delete my previous xbox originals DLC to make way for xbox 360 games DLC. Why not make these out on discs??? And keep updating the xbox originals backward combatibility list rather than just making them on DLC! Sure, it’s alright saying “get out there and buy a bigger harddrive” but these harddrives do cost an arm and a leg to me. You can buy a 200GB laptop harddrive cheaper than you wpould buy a 120GB xbox 360 harddrive for goodness sake…

    @Big Guino: SF4 is not a beat em up. It is a fighter. Beat em ups are games like Double Dragon and TMNT 1989 Arcade.

    Good to see Max Payne on Xbox Originals, but again way too expensive. The only game I can see being actually worth buying on originals is Marvel vs Capcom 2. That game is so hard to find and people sell it on ebay for top dollar. The DLC version would be cheap and would be fun regardless of lack of achievements.

    This might have been a good deal if it was BOTH games for 1200MSP. At that price point, pass…

    WAY too expensive, plus you can’t throw in fun mods like Kung Fu 3.0.

    No sale for such short games.

    Way overpriced, you can pick them both up for £8.99/$15.00 on Steam.

    In the UK its cheaper to buy both off Steam than just one on XBLM:/

    Originals is a good concept that would be better if the cost were less. 800 MSP ($10 US) would be a better price point. I’d rather own a physical disc, which I can probably get for around $5. And the lack of achievements keeps me from playing any original Xbox games.

    If they could only add a single 250 point achievement that pops at the end of the game, that would be great.

    It really is a shame that the Originals are largely nothing more than inferior versions of titles at grossly inflated prices.

    The URL to Xbox Originals includes a dot at de end, making it link to all games, instead of Xbox Originals.

    Good games, but way too expensive at this price. MS should have bundled the two together for $15 total, rather than each.

    Awesome games, but Xbox Originals are way too expensive. Why buy one of them for $15 when you can get both on Steam for the same price? (Probably cheaper in stores or online retailers too)

    Because I have lots of money and I don’t want another disc. I would put all my games on the hard drive if I could. I can’t because I would need petabyte drive for all 600 of my games.

    You can get Max Payne at GameStop for $5, one-third the price of what M$ is offering it for. Pass on the downloadable version.
