How much is it usually? $10 for an xbox game seems like the full price lol.

If those games were $10 all the time I would buy some of them but the normal $15 price point is to much.

Someone needs to tell MS that selling an 8 year old game that isn't very good for $10 is far from a deal. Deals include things that people actually want.

Agreed. Only game that I would have bought for 15 was Psychonauts mainly because I had a hard time finding it in the first place.
Anyways as for the game bleh, I got it about a year ago for 6 bucks with a coupon from gamestop and got bored of it after about 2 hours and never touched it again. Crappy deal of the week.

Does anybody really download Xbox Originals? Aside from curiosity about how XBO works or a particular favorite game, I wouldn't imagine that they sell very well. I'd rather see the game added to the backwards compat list.

Achievements would turn the business model on its head...

These originals must be making them some money, I imagine, or Microsoft wouldn't have them up. How much does keeping these Xbox originals up for download cost Microsoft anyway? A dime a month?

Question:
How many xbox originals would you buy at 5.00 each??
I think I would buy a bunch....
(I'd also probably buy a bigger HD... lol so they'd make money there too)

Sadly I know people who purchase them regularly. One friend pretty much purchases them all even though he owns them on original xbox. I doubt he even plays them I think he just likes owning stuff.
Another friend who lives in college dorms says he buys them because no one came steal them. Think I would just take my chances since most of them can be picked up for 5-10 bucks elsewhere.
A guy on my friend list at work buys them, I asked him why once and he told me that he never owned an original xbox and missed a lot of games. He didn't know some were backward compatible and I've been letting him borrow my old ones i don't play since.

I doubt I'll ever buy one unless its seriously discounted and I don't all ready own it. I'd probably spend 600 points for one if I didn't own it and it looked decent.

I bought Ninja Gaiden Black, since it was cheaper than buying the game used at the time and that it's probably my favorite game ever!

Methinks we should chill the :-# out.

If they put Black on sale for 50% off, I'd get it. That's probably the only one. If they really wanted the things to sell, they'd add achievements to XBO titles. Maybe that's too much time and effort to spend on old, out of print games, though. As it stands, $15 is way too much.

Even for Silver members.

Not to interrupt the argument between silver and gold members, but really? Crash for 10? I think Im just gonna keep my eye out for amazons next XBLA deal cause its obvious MS is content giving garbage deals.

Well, I'm actually a big Crash Bandicoot fan, and enjoyed this game (minus the extreme loading times). I have plenty of points to spend, so I'll probably download it. Normally, I wouldn't download any XBO titles, but I'm a big enough Crash fan that I even considered buying it for $15 when it came out (and $10 is a much better deal, last time I checked, the game goes for about the same price or more online [ shipped ]).

Was this the one where Crash is absusing Cortex? The demo for that one actually seemed kind of clever (I hated the newest one though).

I was considering picking up Indigo Prophecy through the Live store or Steam, but I found a disc copy, and it was actually cheaper (yay!)

Xbox Originals is a joke. Most of the games can be bought very cheap used. Why would I pay $15 for a download of Crimson Skies that wastes hd space over a $2.99 used copy at GS that includes the manual, case and game? I think not, MICROSOFT!

Yeah, well that's one more reason they want to push us to this download stuff :(

At least they're not trying to charge $60 :-/ , and the selection is pretty great (they should stick Buffy up there...)

I may end up buying this. It's listed at $10 used at Gamestop. While I'd rather have a physical copy, trying to track one of these down with the case and manual could be too much of a hassle.
