        While I do understand your point,and thus totally see where you are coming from. I agree that a lot of the older back catalog should be assesed and receive a permanent discount,at least for Gold members. But at the same time, as far as the two “Banjo” titles are concerned, I think the pricing is fair.
        Each one contains more than enough hours of gameplay to justify the price.
        But, a sale on them. Wouldn’t be a terrible thing…

        LMAO I’m so selfish paying XBLA on day one (even geting extra copies on different formats) just to support the devs I like, shame on me…

        I’m still smiling at the fact it looks like you reply me as I was talking to you, as individual or colective. Unless you are from Microsoft’s marketing team your reply, or at least your grammar made no sense at all.

        Then you switch to “them” when you refer to people keeping the price up, wich is something I never said I wanted nor I do want. So much nonsense in such brief commentary, in special when it wasn’t your concern AFAIK.

        In case people don’t want to read it all again, I was just SUGGESTING MICROSOFT something I considered a BETTER POLICY on discounts, something that US (supportes, customers) WOULD BENEFIT from.

        All this BS aside (won’t like this to turn into a trolling thread), people should try out MOTOCROSS MADNESS… hope it does well, reasonable value for the money it’s priced.

        And I take it that “Halo 3” (GoD or disc) and multiplayer-only Halo 3 disc from the Halo 3: ODST disc set are cross compatible multiplayer over Xbox LIVE? That is, you can play against players no matter how they are running Halo 3 multiplayer?

        Like

      • Quaranj

        Yes, however, the Halo 3 retail disc or GonD does not have the extra DLC maps bundled in like the ODST one, but if the person playing the Halo 3 disc has all the maps downloaded, they can play ALL the same rooms/maps as the person with the second disc to ODST.

        I keep forgetting that I didn’t buy Mythic II and often find myself swapping discs when I feel a little H3. If it drops to 600 points next week on the Halo sale, it’s still not low enough for me to buy it for my drive to have as merely a convenience item.

      Hello.
      I want to point out the multiplayer competitive aspect of “Halo 3: ODST” (present on a stand alone disc) is the same of “Halo 3”: players can compete between eachother with any version of the two games.

      “Halo 3: ODST” competitive multiplayer disc has 3 more map, which you can buy for “Halo 3” as DLC (“Mythic II map pack”).

      So if you buy “Halo 3”, even on GoD, + “Mythic II map pack” DLC, you are settled (as playing with the multiplayer disc of “Halo 3: ODST”).

      Confirmations on what I have stated are welcome.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bush-O-Connor/555604190 Bush O Connor

        the ODST multiplayer disc (disc 2) has all dlc map packs for halo 3 included. if you buy halo 3 GoD then you will have to buy all the map packs, i think there was 4 in total. it would work out cheaper to buy ODST in the shop than buy halo 3 GoD.
