What does the American Dream mean today? For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past. For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity. As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don’t. There are no refunds for this item. For more information, see http://www.xbox.com/live/accounts.

    Finally a game actually worth the $30 (even though you could probably find it a few bucks cheaper at retail). Too bad I’ve had this one since launch, otherwise it would be the first game on the service I’d consider.

    Eh, even $30’s too much. Especially since you can’t resell it. You can find it cheaper at Gamestop.

    $40 in Canada to download, or $30 (at most) at retail. Time and time again…

    It looks like it’s A$50 in Australia, which is US$45.34 at current exchange rate. Why is it so screwed? Why is it 50% more expensive?

    $30 retail in Canada $40 for the download. Come on! Some one should really look at the Canada to US dollar conversion a little closer.

    We pay $50 (USD) a year for XBL just to get Games on Demand which is higher the cost then what you can get a retail copy for $10 (USD) less (give or take).

    Huh? You don’t need an Xbox Live Gold account to get Games on Demand.

    Woot! All my complaining I guess has helped halve the price of Mass effect here (It’s $50 instead of $100).😛

    at the end of this month the game comes out with all the download content for £24.99, £5 more than this which is easily covered by the download content prices, also it’ll save 7GB of hard drive space, and you can sell it once you have finished with it. keep laughing microsoft, uncharted 2 comes out on friday. more customers will be spending elsewhere!!!

    Can buy this used for £5 or £10 new here, plus the version with all the DLC comes out soon for cheaper than the GoD price of this…

    I live in the scottish highlands and can still get games cheaper than your demand service, talk about epic fail

    Microsoft, this is getting better. I CAN find it cheaper new in box, but only by a few dollars and it did require a little searching. This is a step in the right direction… if you can find a way to lower the prices a little more, I think you’ll have me onboard for this idea.

    @EMFULZ: You pay for online gaming, non-delayed demos, weekly marketplace discounts, and the ability to send instant messages via Xbox.com rather than just from the console. In the near future, you also get Twitter, Facebook, and Last.fm integration. On whole, it’s a generous deal that just keeps getting better. As Jonah Falcon already pointed out, though, Games on Demand is the same for everyone.

    Shouldn’t we just not follow Major’s twitter post and buy Uncharted 2, or Uncharted 1 if you don’t already have it?🙂

    Now if they were the same price as retail and was stored in a virtual space then it’d be awesome no doubt

    Games on Demand seems a bit like punishment to early adopters. I wish I could play GTA IV without having to swap discs, even though I did a hard drive install, I still need to insert the disc whenever I want to play the game. Do you think there will ever be a way for us to get the benefit of these games on demand without having to repurchase?

    Yeah,i am loving games on demand overpriced releases.On top of loving limited hard drive space.Until MS fixes both issues Games on demand will remain a joke.
    Heck i don’t have room on my drive for more than a few demos and game content.
    So when i see a 120-250 gig drive for $60 and MS undercuts gamstop i will use their GOD service.
    Until then i will laugh at their newest joke.Funny xbox will even sell you jpegs for money.cha ching.
