        Thanks, I thought they had that on discount too. I never buy the season passes until they go on sale. This year, it seems that I find games on sale right after the passes go on sale. Maybe I’ll start buying them when they are cheap even if I don’t have the game. As long as I plan on buying the game.

    That Red Bull Crashed Ice Kinect game could end up being decent fun, especially for only $5. I’ll at least give the trial a shot.

    Otherwise, nothing for me, which is fine. I don’t need to be buying more Microsoft points right now.

    As expected, GTA IV Deals… Microsoft, nice hat trick! 1st you fail informing your customers in advance (news come the same day deals kick in) then you fail keeping that invaluable info secret (it always leaks) to end up dissapointing 90% of your customer base with those poor deal choices. 3 in 1 !

    To top that, deadliest warrior on sale (again), burnout crash and Dragon’s lair… no single game of the list it’s being discounted for the first time!

    Then there is the Ubisoft Publisher Sale (no info at all about that) … I guess it will be From Dust 33% again, clash of heroes, for the third time discounted and just to punish who got I Am Alive last week 33% it will be 50% 2 weeks later.

    I remember when there wasn’t deals nor sales; I was really excited about this featureat first… then it ended like that. Somehow, pathetic.

    Sorry to be in the moan bandwagon but I feel like Microsoft lately wants me to ” JUMP OUT ” instead.

        I did. Every week with Sales & Specials app, but mostly bad deals for me. usually 4 offers at a time. I am a gamer and avatar items just isn’t appealing to me. I can’t continue to play this wait and seek game. So you wait couple month for single good deal while the xbox live gold account timer to run out. You are losing huge opportunity cost with xbox live while other platform offer much greater value.

    • Thânia Santos

      I 100% agree with you.

      but none of us really know if those deals are profitable or not, only Microsoft knows.

      Real gamers and long time gold member have tons of reason to be angry with this service, and, myself, after 7 years non stop, I might also let my subscription expire.

      but if Microsoft is still doing nice profits from those atrocious deals we had all this years, more than with ‘gamers friendly’ deals, why would they change?

      we all know that Expendable 2 is one of the worst game of the arcade, and deadly warrior is terrible too. None if us, gamers, or well aware players would buy those, at any cost.
      but how many copy did they sell on that Monday!!?
      I think the answer might be frightening, even if I wished it would have been low numbers…

      Impossible to be satified with those crappy deals., and the worst part is: we are paying for this and they are getting a lot of money with out deserve this.

      Sure that soon I will spend more money in the PS3, 3DS and my upcoming WiiU. M$ just don’t deserve a part that I’m spendig (a lot) every year in games.

  • MilkyTee

    I was reading an article where the co-creator of the original Xbox (not involved with M$ anymore) was saying Microsoft needs to adapt or die. He is right, so incredibly right.

    We just saw the PS3 catch up to the 360 in WW sales (they’re within a hairs breadth of one another), despite launching a year later.

    We also saw Steam bag it’s 50 millionth user and having 6 million concurrent users online, just the other day. At best, the 360 might achieve half of that.

    To really invigorate the Xbox brand, Microsoft needs to get with the times, or get left in the dust. Tear down that walled garden approach to your console, it only scares off prospective developers and hinders what your userbase can play and see.

    Stop charging indie devs 20,000+ dollars to simply fix game-breaking bugs.

    Stop offering so little for a premium subscription service that should be free in the first place. Seriously you might have won that one, as it’s proven to be successful. But you tried to charge for online play with Games for Windows Live users, and they just had none of it and told you to rightly f*** off. Same is going to happen here. You treat you consumers like dirt and they will flock to where they’re offered better value

    Offer your customers more than three or four first party franchises. Gears, Halo and Forza are ALL quality, but a bit of quantity wouldn’t go amiss either. People are going to get very bored, very quickly, if that’s all you can offer them

    Gabe Newell, the mastermind behind Valve and Steam, has got this absolutely pinned down. His mantra is “Put customers first, before ANYTHING else”. Guess what?

    His platform is experiencing exponential growth, while yours is simply stagnating.

    I’d be pretty indifferent to seeing you drop out of the console race. You delivered a fantastic console last gen, that strived to be better than it’s competitors because it HAD to, and it succeeded. Probably one of the greatest consoles ever created.

    The 360 had a promising start, but now because you’ve gobbled up a sizeable portion of the userbase, you’ve gotten lazy. You’e not even trying anymore.

    I know people say this the entire time, and never necessarily mean it, but I’m being 100% sincere when I say I won’t be picking up the next Xbox, despite my love for Halo. I can get far better elsewhere, and if that means sacrificing my favourite series, so be it.

    Better than being bent over by you people every other week. Shame on you.

      in the last few years i and my family have bought at least 6-7 xbox 360’s, i also during the 3rrod times fixed hundreds of xbox’s with most of those people having to buy another 360 either way.
      in all that time i bought 1 ps3 and gained another 2 for payment on fixing the xboxs. so i would say their xbox sale figures are way off, not including the ammount they must have shifted for modding and ban waves that followed.

      i was the first to buy the original xbox in my area i got everyone to drop the ps2, i wired a network to play halo2 that connected 20 houses that crossed a field and a river.before broadband.

      i will more than likely drop the xbox next gen, its lost the hardcore gaming feel it once had.

      I have to admit I have pretty much given up on MS and the 360 as my main gaming device these days. Their sales and giveaways are so lacking most of the time I hardly feel the need to buy anything anymore. I can’t remember the last time I truly felt tempted to spend money. Thanks to Steams/Gamefly/ and even Origin’s big holiday sales, I have a new library of games to play that could have been purchased on the 360, but didn’t.

      MS is so stingy, I think I spent at least $80 on those services and bought a ton of games. I did end up buying Halo 4 only because Amazon had the $20 gift card and $10 video credit deal. I was planning on buying Max Payne 3 on Xbox but got it on PC for $14.99, Bought dishonored for $24.99, Syndicate for $5, Dead Island for $7.49.

      I actually want MS to give me reasons to buy games on Xbox, they hardly ever do, and its a real shame.

        I agree that digital sales are terrible on Xbox, but I bought almost all the games you mentioned for around the same price on Black Friday for Xbox (Max Payne for $15, Dishonored for $25 and I saw Dead Island for $10, but didn’t end up picking it up, didn’t look for deals on Syndicate. The main reason I use a console over a PC is to game with my wife (and my PC sucks, it’s a glorified word editor), I’m not switching to Sony any times soon (not because they suck or anything, I just don’t like their controller) and if Wii U gets some good games I might switch over (although that could take a few years). Xbox is really the only alternative and while I enjoy it a lot, they really need to get their act together.
