    600 deal 800 no deal. Not because the game isn`t worth it, I just expected more for the final of the dealdays.

    I’d say last years countdown were better. This feels more like a random deal of the week pick and not really bargain prices. I guess the thanksgiving sale with some crazy steals spoiled me.

    @L0rN: There are so many important things to take a stand on, in the world, and you pick two dollars and fifty cents. I bet your grandchildren will be proud.

    I was expecting at least a 50% discount for this title like the previous deals, for 33% I’ll pass.

    I thought Limbo sucked. At 600 I’d have said “yeah, go get it if you want” but no. 800 isn’t good enough for what is essentially an average two-hour platformer with very little replayability. Leave it.
    Nice to see the deals going out with a whimper, rather than a bang.

    Damn, its crazy how ppl whine about its 800 and not 600 MS point, if it was priced at 600 MS points, ppl would whine about its not 400 MS points.

    It’s well wroth the 800 MS points, really cool game, a steal at 800 MSP.

    The 12 days of christmas was a great idea except for the fact all the deals sucked! “Heres a random avatar item that no one wants for only 80mp!!”….”Heres a game that 90% of people own for only 600mp.”
    .
    .
    Really? How about a deal on a new game that came out like Microbot. Better yet lets change the way Live works so you can earn up to 25% off every few months just by gaining gamer score or something. Surley there has to be a way to make some cool system out like that. Especially since that what most every other company does. Look at Popcap games. I’ve bought EVERY one of their games and my reward? 50% all games now and in the future! You get rewarded for being with them.
    .
    .
    Unlike MS where your reward is price cuts on games everyone owns or no one wants. Heck look at the “Games On Demand” Just Cause 2 is $40……on Ebay its $10….$15 new!

    Hey Major, please tell MS to do NO MORE DEALS of the week or anything like that next year so ppl really have something to complain about! I can’t believe how ppl cry over this stuff!

    I do think gamerscore should be implemented in some way other than bragging rights. Where the deals for achievement whor3s??

    I was expecting a bigger bang to end this promotion and the year. This is still not insta-buy material at that price for me. Still, picked up some cool stuff the last couple of days, so no complaints here.

    Happy new year everyone!

    So is there something substantial at the end of this countdown other than another day and a different digit at the end of my calendar?

    @I JFLO – I agree. Maybe MS points for hitting certain marks like 10K, 20K, etc? access to special betas? Any type of reward system would benefit us and MS, since ppl would play a lot more to boost their score and buy more games.

    Hey, wasn’t that supposed to be 600MSP? I distinctly remeber it being announced for 600MSP… Much as I want to play this game, 800MSP is too much. I’m going to wait until there is a really fair deal. Guess I’ll have to buy another game on Steam instead.

    @CthulhuBRA1978 – I don’t think it was announced for anything… Heck the sale wasn’t even technically announced ahead of time (other then some pretty obvious clues). People just expected it to be 600MSP because that’s what the other Summer of Arcade games got reduced to.

    I’ll be passing on this one, not because of the price (which I think is fine. It’s still a $5 savings on a game that only sells for $15) but because I hated the trial when I played it back in the summer.

    800 should be standard pricing for such a short game

    600 or 560 would be a deal

    800 points. Wow. I hope you’re not breaking the piggy bank for that deal? I had downloaded the trial expecting this to be *at most* 600 point. I’ll think about it, but very probably not.

    Like this other guy said, we’re not bitching about the 2.50$. Personally, I have plenty of 2.50$ laying around. It’s about the principle. There is is no rhyme or reason to those deals. An almost-new game that is almost 2 gigs will get a 50% discount, but a year-old 150 megs (if that) game will get a 33% discount because it’s more popular and doesn’t “need” to be discounted more than that.

    I’m sorry, Did I say there were no rhyme or reason to this? What I meant to say is that your sale tactics are transparent and insulting. You’re not even trying.

    Also, to those whining about the whiners: Sheeples, all of you.

    That is all.

    So many people whining and so many saying there is no reason…
    Well, I say that people should say their opinions.
    So I will whine:

    I got plenty of games and DLC’s on the countdown deals, at fair sales price. Now, I see Limbo at a regular sales price, maybe I will buy it, but not today. I have more than I can play for the next months. I feel a bit cheated, because I didn’t buy Red Dead Redemption DLC’s, because I wanted to save my point for Limbo… Now I will not get none of the two…
