So this means two things:

1. The Xbox 720 will not be backwards compatible. (which I'm cool with, I'll still be using my 360 for years to come)
2.

Demand titles will be on sale up to 75% off with some as much as 85% off.

That is not a proper sentence.

Seriously though, it seems like a bit of an odd list. Portal 2, Assassin's Creed, Streetfighter IV and Borderlands seem good, but like why not just list everything? I may want to pick up a game I forgot about that's a year or two old.

but like why not just list everything?

That should be obvious, to make you look everyday. If you're actually sitting there looking and capable of hitting that splurge purchase you're far more likely to bite. Not to mention anything they pre-announce will get zero sales till it hits the discount. You may get mad at them if you happen to pay full price, and then your purchase price drops, but then you'll think "Gee, I should check this sale everyday". Virtually every logical argument is in favor of them just giving a partial list.

It is if you post the whole sentence and not just a fragment of it. Let's not nitpick, when we should be thanking Zelda for the head's up.

Thank you, Zelda. :)

Just buy it when the sale is on and then download it later whenever you want it/have the HD room.

Thanks Zelda! Got my eye on a few if the price is right... <800msp

The main deals forum has nice post on this, with comparison prices. While they are US pricing, it is somewhat valid to CDN given the age of some of these titles.

Thanks for the link!
Looks like El Shaddai for me today too... when I tried converting it to points option on PC thru xbox.com though.. it was going to charge me 480 points! That seems weird.. I'll try directly thru the xbox soon.

Was tempted to grab Bioshock as so many people rave about it, but the demo really didn't do anything to sell me. Really wish the Devil May Cry HD collection was on this list. I've even been having trouble finding it in stores.

Dirt 2 came up as $2.99 for me when I paid with paypal. Great deal for one of the best rally racing games I've ever played.

Be careful when buying games with Microsoft Points, since they haven't always lined up with the dollar amount. I purchased The Darkness for 440 MSP and realized afterwards that it should have been 360 MSP. Microsoft customer support claims to be unable to refund me the amount I paid.

The person you talked to is incorrect, they can, try harder the mistake is theirs.

It works both ways, I paid 200 points for El Shaddai, $2.99 should be 240 points.
Want Amazon, Paypal or Starbucks gift cards just by searching the internet? Just join swag bucks then. I have earned $140 in Amazon GCs so far.

Whenever I paid with MSP for games on demand the price has been lower then the US MSP price. I just figured it's lower because we get less points on our cards for the $20-$40.

Looks like the whole points being converted wrongly was a SNAFU on microsoft's side.. according to Major Nelson.... he's saying it should be fixed now. Most everyone was getting the wrong price when converting/trying to pay with points.

if you look in the comments section they talk about it..

Yeah, yesterday, El Shaddai was 440 or 480 MS points and now it's 200 points. I just bought El Shaddai and Rayman Raving Rabbids.

Major Nelson also confirmed today that the big main list of games is going to remain on sale through the end of the sale, with the "headliners" changing each day. So the Halo games that were on sale yesterday were one day only. Today's games are Assassin's Creed 1, 2, Bro, & Rev for 50% off each.

They should consider putting the DLC on sale too, i would definitely be intrested in that since I already own most of these games.

I'll probably snag CV. 4 should really be cheaper. I know I bought my points around half price, but still, it's a really old game now.

ORC dropped to $5 for a used copy at BB in the States the other week. Obviously they aren't that price up here. But Goozex and such were flooded with them, you could grab a 1000 point game from a Zellers bin for ~$7 to get one from there.

I'm tempted to buy RE5, but you can find a physical copy of the Gold Edition for $20 and that comes with all of the DLC.

I should point out that I didn't really care for the tweaks to the main game that came with the Gold Edition, they added some deaths which I found cheap/annoying. Of course there's stuff other than the main game that made the Gold Edition worthwhile. Also it should be well known that the Gold Edition on the 360 was the regular disc with a DLC code, so you can't get a used copy. I'm not too sure how readily available new 360 copies still are.

Considering all the caveats on RE5, it really should be $5. I've seen regular copies selling under $10 plenty of times...

Amazon.ca still has some. I don't know if the DLC is actually worth it, but I always feel compelled to pick up the DLC for games that I own to get the "full" experience.
