Gotta like that. Thanks for the info. Still not sure I'll be getting it, but that certainly makes it more attractive. It never looked like a $15 game to me.

Thanks for the awesome heads up, OP. SMB seems like a game I'd love but also seems overly difficult for me.

Damn, too bad the 800 MSP rebate won't be deposited until the end of November.

I was going to buy it anyway day one. But now this is an even greater reason. Don't forget that Team Meat plans on releasing free post game DLC too. These guys are obviously trying to make their game as attractive a purchase as possible.

But now I'll have to spend a little more just to get up to the 2400 points I need to spend, oye!

Well, there's the filler I need for the 2400 point spending spree thing.

Rad. I was gonna pick it up at 1200, but at 800 it's a no-brainer.

Played a level of this at PAX in Seattle. Totally hyped up for some punishingly hard platforming awesomeness.

Though still holding out for the Steam release in November... when this version will probably go up in cost.

This is a pleasant surprise, I was ready to spend 1200 pts on this. Now I need to find another way to spend 400 pts and get my 800 pt rebate. Already bought Deathspank: ToV earlier in the month. Maybe I'll splurge on Costume Quest.

I wish there was some sort of Mini-Meat Boy thing to purchase, as I'm wanting to hit the 2400 mark and would totally wish to throw money at the people behind this game to accomplish that. It's a confusing day when I feel burdoned with a "free" $5 to spend.

Also kinda regretting not buying Kasumi last week, but ohhhhhhh well.

now this is a deal i can get behind. much better than the current shitty dotw. They are also planning FREE DLC support "teh internets", pretty much the opposite of EA's model of withholding content on the disc you paid for ahem*vip/onslaught *ahem.

Excellent news. This is a must buy now, 1200 was debatable (would have bought anyway most likely), but 800 is a no brainer, thanks op.

This is great! Been waiting for SMB, and would have taken the plunge at 1200, but 800 is just a definite pick up. Hopefully other games will follow this trend, I would definitely buy more games when they came out instead of waiting for them to go on sale.

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

Very very clever. Although I'm really excited for this game, I was going to wait a couple months while I play through the "bigger" games like Vanquish, Fallout and Fable.

Now I'll buy it day-one, but probably not play it for a few months.

So being on sale, does this count towards the spend 2400 get 800 back promo? If so then for me it's Costume Quest + Super Meat Boy + ...any suggestions for around 400? Otherwise I may just get Limbo making all 3 average to 800 each.

I hope this sells great so then companies will see what the price point should be when they are selling XBLA games. Like Dead Rising: Case 0 at $5 this is perfect at $10

This is awesome. I was going to buy it at 1200 even though I didn't like paying $15 for it so this just makes it even sweeter.

"Quick look"? Do they do that as a joke a lot? It's almost 50min long...

Anyway I'm on the fence, seems like XBLA is being bombarded with difficult games lately and frustration does not = fun for me. I've always thought it should be an 800pt game anyway, but that video does show a little more depth then I thought. Guess a purchase will depend on the demo.

Same here. The game looks really well made, but I am just not the glutton for punishment that I was ten or twenty years ago. I will need to check out a demo to see just how hard this game really is.

But now it's definitely on my radar, so thanks for posting the deal.
