    Wow, and we’re back to lame deals. I got the first two for around $10 at retail and I think Max Payne 3 was only like $14 used from Gamefly. Epic fail MS.

        hey, MW3 DLC 50% off was a damn good start, saved me money and MW3 DLC is the best DLC value in years because the maps & Spec Ops are awesome.

        now when those map packs were already over priced😄 should have been 400 points or less per pack.

        nah, I would’ve felt happy paying 1200 because they are that good. but i get your point that DLC should be cheaper than it is

    LA Noire complete edition is $20, so rip off there
    red dead GOTY is about $20 so nope.
    max pain is $30 in store right now…. so again, nope
    midnight club is OLD I am sure it is cheaper elsewhere as well… this is why people don’t respect xbox and why so many people like PSN+ over xbox gold.

      “So many people” as new Xbox head Nancy Tellem looks at LIVE having triple the market share, which will grow with TV services, and shrugs. Don’t forget that in order for a market-share-losing amount of people to enjoy PSN+, they must first purchase a PS3 they don’t own. Having both consoles is a small part of the venn diagram.

        actually, it isn’t here is the issue with hard drives for xbox.

        everyone knows that the 360 uses 2.5in computer hard drives with 5400rpm, AKA, standard laptop hard drives. the only difference(besides the cases that hold them) is 1-2 files that tell the hard drive to work with xboxes only, a few years ago you could actually take a 1tb hard drive and use it with xbox, because people figured out you can just copy and paste the 2 files. MS learned this, made a patch to wipe the hard drives of everyone doing this.

        the 320gb is the biggest xbox hard drive available now, and the average price is $80~$125, $80 is about the same price as a 1tb laptop hard drive, which is roughly 3 times more space for the same price and same read speed. PS3 can use any laptop hard drive, so you can put a 1tb hdd in it for the price of a 320gb xbox hdd, PLUS you can always use that hard drive in a computer if you ever want to sell the ps3, 360 hard drives will probably be useless after 360 dies.

        MS should read your comment very true indeed. I think they believe that a 320gb drive is massive but ill tell ya my 250gb drive has only 26gb left and i don’t even install any of my disc based games. We should be able to put at least 1TB drives in are boxes. I stopped buying alot of DLC and arcade games due to I don’t want to fill it up and have no space left. As i don’t delete anything ever.

        I have two 1TB hard drives on my computer and each are about 25% filled up. 360 doens’t let you have alot of room. As much as I don’t like PS3. I thought it was awesome they made the HDs so you can go buy your own HD and not be limited to the ones they have for it. MS should take note about that.

    Retail
    LA Noire Complete edition (all DLC) Amazon UK = £16.00 ($26.00)
    Red Dead – Game of the Year (all DLC, including undead nightmare) Amazon UK = £14.00 ($23.00)
    Max Payne 3 – Amazon UK = £15.00 ($25.00)
    Midnight Club LA Complete edition (+DLC) Amazon UK = £14.00 ($23.00)

    So the only bargain is really Midnight Club LA, a 3 year old game.

    Back to PSN and Steam it is then.

    These deals are aimed at those that cannot get to a local store or do not want to wait for games to arrive in the post or just find it a lot easier to buy games from the market place. What if you was given quite a lot of Microsoft points or you bought a lot for less than the RRP? I am sure you might want to spend the points in buying the games on the marketplace instead of spending further in stores…Some people need to give things a much better thought before posting such nonsense.

    So let me see my options

    a)I could buy L.A Noire for €19.99 from Xbox .If I want all the DLC it’ll cost me around another €20 so roughly €40 in total

    b)I could buy the complete edition brand new from Amazon(which includes all the DLC)and have it delivered to my door for €25

    c)I could walk into one of the shops in my town and pick up a brand new basic copy of L.A Noire for €14.99

    Someone at Microsoft wanna tell my why the hell I’d even consider picking option a)

With taxes in the store and the small price difference i’d go for a) but that’s me

    Now, this I like!
    Not because these “deals” are any good because they’re not, it’s the fact that even the U.S. gets shafted on this one, not just the other territories.
    Over the past few days the U.S. has had some great prices whilst everyone else has been left bewildered and sore by the lack of lube the XBL marketing department has used.
    Don’t worry Americans, now you know how the rest of the world feels and you’ll probably get some great prices tomorrow to make up for it, i’m sure.

    As someone has already mentioned, you can get pretty much all of these (DLC included) for less than the prices you’re offering.

    Maybe the Microsoft/Xbox Christmas party started early, they had a little too much to drink and they decided to hit the keyboard with their heads to see what random nonsensical deals they could each produce? What a fun time everyone must’ve had!
