  1. Yeh, the same lameness happens with my local grocery store every week. They advertise detergent on sale, and wtf… I’ve already got detergent! Or a case of Coke… and again, wtf, I’ve aleady got some! They’ve really got some nerve putting stuff I already have on sale. O_o

    Geez… relax people.

  2. I love all of the people that call it a lame/stupid deal just because they own whatever is on sale…

    The thing is: not everybody else does.

    While I personally don’t like GH:WT enough to spend more money on it, if they ever do this with Rock Band songs, I’m all over it.

  3. I’d be down with two deals a week, one on a past acrade title and one on a past add on (songs/themes/etc.) Don’t care for GH stuff, that ship has sailed.

  4. Uhm, early news on other sites reported 50% discount. 25% on a so little price (I think no one will take every song of that tier) is not a fantastic deal and it leave you with odd points to waste.

    Anyway, I heard it is avaiable on Silver accounts too… And I saw that on the japanese Marketplace site the songs are 120 MSP too even if the Deal Of The Week is Buku Sudoku for 400 MSP.

    So I think this is an Activision deal, not a MS one.

  5. Sony’s members are getting better deals. They have Brain Challenge DLC too (no one on X360!) and… Brain Challenge is an hit (400 MPS) only in USA. Still 800 MSP here in Europe.

    And now the World Tour DLC too. 10 VS 25.

    I feel so unhappy. :/

  6. I don’t buy any GH DLC anymore after nothing worked from 3.

    Rock Band FTW!

    World Tour in itself should of been DLC. not a new game. This business model has failed.

  7. And this is why I bought a PS3….and using it more than my 360. Got tired of the crap MS is pulling towards it’s members, and I am sure I am not the only one who has purchased a PS3 recently…..I am not saying Sony is perfect, but I am enjoying it more, not the online gaming, although I haven’t had an issue with it, but I am mostly the type who plays offline.

  8. Surely MS could learn a little from Steam specials?
    Most of the ‘deals’ are horrible to say the least. MS are more stingy than the US on the price of oil.

  9. The original press release said 50% off, not 25%. I was going to buy all the tracks I didnt have (8 of the 10) but since you have changed the deal then ill have to reconsider, especially considering how sick of music games most people are. Seriously, who comes up with these deals of the week?

  10. See, now the PSN deal wipes the floor with this. Same price, more choice.
    If the songs here were 50% off then things would balance out nicely.
    Do what you did with Puzzle Quest, offer the same content at a LOWER PRICE than other platforms.

    I feel for you Major, the commenters are gonna have a field day when L4D Crash Course is out and we are asked to pay for it while PC owners enjoy it for free.

  11. To my fellow Xbox Live members, here’s the track packs that each of the discounted songs belong to. Even with the crappy 25% off savings, you’ll still do better to pick up these songs individually, if you think you want their track packs, since the savings this week will still have you break even if you buy the other 2 songs individually (120sale + 160reg + 160reg = 440reg).

    Here’s the track packs:
    Travis Barker – Low … found within “Travis Barker Track Pack”
    Blink 182 – What’s My Age Again … found within “Travis Barker Track Pack”
    The Killers – Mr. Brightside … found within “The Killers Track Pack”
    Ram Jam – Black Betty … found within “Southern Rock Track Pack”
    Queen – We Are The Champions … found within “Queen Track Pack”
    Smashing Pumpkins – 1979 … found within “Smashing Pumpkins Track Pack”
    Nickelback – Because of You … found within “Hard Rock Track Pack”
    Foreigner – Hot Blooded … no track pack avail.
    Blind Melon – No Rain … no track pack avail.
    Rick Springfield – Jessie’s Girl … no track pack avail.

  12. this has got to be one of the worst deals of the week. even if I had WT or GH5 I wouldn’t get these songs as except for the Queen song they suck. also like some of the articles on various sites were saying weren’t these going to be 50% not 25% off? talk about pulling a fast one on your customers
