FAQ:
_________________________________________________

Q: What do you mean by GOLD MEMBERS ONLY?
A: GOLD members are paid subscribers to Xbox Live. These deals are only available to them.

Q: I'm an XBOX LIVE FREE member, can I use a 48 hour trial to get the GOLD discount?
A: No. 48 hour codes only work for online play.

Q: What about the promotional GOLD weekends?
A: No. Those only allow online play.

Q: How long is this deal going on?
A: One week (seven days) unless otherwise noted.

Q: I'm not seeing the sale price, what is going on?
A: If the deal is live, make sure you are logged-in to Xbox.com or your 360 with a GOLD account. Sometimes there is a disconnect between Xbox.com and the Xbox Dashboard.

Q: When do the deals go live?
A: Deal of the Week deals go live on Tuesday morning usually around 9am EST. (Monday's before 3/22/11)

Q: What about all the other sales and promos?
A: Microsoft has gotten into the habit of offering other sales and promos as well as the Deal of the Week. I list them in this thread to reduce clutter on the Deals Forum and to help maximize your savings.

Q: Should I have any concerns about waiting to buying something on sale?
A: After a few years of experience with Xbox LIVE. I think you might want to know:
-Items can be pulled from Xbox.com with little or no notice (Games, Content, DLC)
-If you wait for an item to go on sale, it might never come (and the item(s) could be pulled)
-End dates can be flimsy. This could mean the sale is cut a bit short (RARE) or run a bit over (Happening more often). Don't count on this happening if you are on the fence. You might miss the sale.
-Consider keeping 800-1200 points on reserve for a 1-Day sale. They are rare, but you will kick yourself if you miss it

Q: What if I don't see a sale/promo listed here?
A: Post it and PM me. PM's are the best way to make sure I see the missing info and get this thread updated.

Q: Are there any other links I should know about?
A: Yes.
CAG Xbox 360 Forum - Discussion on games and lots of gaming groups to join.
CAG Xbox Live Free Stuff Thread - Great thread and discussion of the free things on Xbox Live
CAG Xbox Live Subscription Thread - Great thread about the deals for Xbox Live on the dashboard
CAG Xbox Live Code Trading Thread - CAGs trading XBL codes.
Xbox Live Rewards - Sign up here to get "rewards"/rebates for Xbox Live purchases and other things. New offers every month, CAG discussion here.

Q: What are your sources?
A: Sources:
-Majornelson.com
-Xbox UK DotW
-Xbox US DotW
-Xbox JP DotW
-Spylon's Xbox Live Database
-Various Publications/Blogs

Q: Do you mind if I copy this info and post it somewhere else?
A: Not really, but I hope you would respect my hard work enough to mention where you got it from and not just straight copy and paste my posts.

Q: Do you have a list of the older sales?
A: Yes. These are all 7 days unless, otherwise noted.




Q: [I]I noticed some talk about "compilation discs[/I][I]?" What is that and is it cheaper?[/I]
A: Some of the content from Xbox Live has been put on retail discs. Some discs have XBLA games, others have several pieces of DLC from one game. Depending on what content you are looking for it you might want to consider looking for a retail disc. Some CAGs and myself have put together this handy list. When an item that can be found on one of these disc goes on sale, a disc vs D/L discussion will likely come up in the thread.



Thanks for the input/help:
[I]Chrono Gear, jputahraptor, sanger, salty tbone, BudzMcGee, kburns10, typical guy, [/I][I]Easy Reader, mxpowar[/I]

Q: [I]What about the old threads?[/I]
A: Old thread links:
2010 - Part 1
2010 - Part 2
2011 - Part 1

Anybody that has 200msp sitting around should definitely pick up Shinobi.

Picked up Shinobi. For 200 pts and it was one of the few Genesis games I did get to play even though I never owned a Genesis.

Might pick up Scott Pilgrim. Already have on PS3, but at that price...

I got a PM asking me to do it. I was hoping to make it all year after I didn't split the thread in July. Thinking about it, if MS does big holiday sales like last year the thread count would have went insane.

I think some of it has gone on sale already. Don't worry it'll all go on sale at least 3-6 times before they release it all in one GotY package so you will have PLENTY of opportunities. Did you buy RISK: Factions yet? You'll get your chance to buy it and the Red Dead DLC a few more times soon enough. It always amazes me when people ask about Fallout (and the like) DLCs going on sale. Seriously these DLCs have to be the most common sales they do. If you have the patience there is a 99.9% chance the Fallout NV DLCs will go on sale. Sheesh!

I get the impression that this fortnight possibly represents a calm before the storm (before Black Friday and Christmas sales), i.e. with only one XBLA game being released each week for this fortnight (especially considering the Burger game is receiving such bad reviews).

In saying that, does anyone know if there are many blockbuster XBLA games coming out over the holidays, i.e. like last year's "Games for the Holidays" promotion (Ilomilo, Raskulls and World of Keflings)?

I Totally spaced on Microsoft's "Fire Pro Wrestling." Either spaced or tried forgetting as best I could. Though I wish they'd just release the goddamn Zombies!! card game on Live already. It either gets cancelled or moves to a different company or just gets no news.

And there's no way I Am Alive is making it this year.

Zombies!!! definitely isn't cancelled. I'm friends with the developer and it's chugging along... Voltron is coming this month for sure, and Sonic CD hits in December, Double Dragon II is currently targetted for December but hasn't passed cert yet.

Diabolical Pitch has always been targeted for 2012.

Awesome. I Fucking love that game. If it's on Live with no stupid glitches, online and comes out with DLC I know me and my friends would just play it nonstop. Well at least until one of us gets over outraged over screwing someone over and quits.
