Arkham Asylum in games on demand? Does that mean we should expect a price drop from the current MSRP of $40 sometime soon?

Well Too Human is $29.99 and COD4 (non GOTY, added in May 2010) is $39.99. So I'd take a cue from that


EDIT (So I don't bump thee thread)

It came out at $39.99.

I'm starting to worry a little about Comic Jumper. Still no release date? I mean, I don't mind waiting if it needs more work, but I'd love to have a date to circle on my calendar.

Need some advice, and I figure here is as good a place as any --

I have bought four of the five Summer of Arcade games, but didn't get Hydro Thunder. I happen to have 1200 points yet at the moment. Should I pick up the game, knowing that I will get them back if I do, or should I take a pass on it and eventually get the 400 point rebate to go up to 1600?

In other words, is it worth someone paying me $5 to NOT play the game?

I'd recommend looking looking at the upcoming DLC, XBLA titles, and deals and budget your points from there. If you can wait till 9/30/10 for the rebate, go for it. HT isn't horrible.

Also, there is some good discussions on Summer of Arcade in the Deal of the Week thread in the deals forum.

HTH is a pretty fun title I think, but if it's not your thing, I'd say don't get it. Unless I'm mistaken, the point rebates don't stack, so if you get it, you'll only get 1200 later, but if you don't get it, you'll keep the 1200 plus gain the additional 400 for 1600 so you will have more points plus you can spend the 1200 on something you would enjoy more. On the other hand, it is only $5 and what harm is there in trying it out? People have claimed the demo isn't the greatest representation of the game because the beginner boats do seem a little slow or for whatever reason.

You might want to post this here. Your "trade" wait period should be up by now.


Thanks for the info LinkinPrime.


Edit So as to not bump the thread:

I don't mind repeat info mixed in with new info, it happens. Because of this thread I know way to much about what is on or coming to the marketplace

It was supposed to launch this summer from Splinter Cell: Conviction. The game was pushed back to "early 2011" so I imagine late winter.

One of the Deals of the Week in October is going to be decided by voting. The options are:
Deathspank for 800 points
Trials HD & DLC 800 points/400?
Dragon Age DLC
Perfect Dark
BFBC2 DLC

Apologies for not remembering all the costs, I voted quickly before posting and can't see now. Live voting shows a very very even spread amongst all 5. Personally I want a deal on Deathspank, everything else I think has had a sale before. This was on my Spotlight.

I'd want a sale on deathspank as well. Although mainly because I have some of the Dragon Age DLC, PD, and Trials. (No interest in BFBC2). Not sure about BFBC2, but all the other have had sales (with the exception of PD / DS I believe).

Anybody that bought the Summer of Arcade games this year get their credit from MS? The fine print of the promotion stated you would be credited to your account on or around 9/30 and I've yet to see any credit on my account as of today.

Do you have the Destination Arcade app? If you do, you can sort by price. I will look at the app later tonight and makes some recommendation here after I update the OP.



The Summer of Arcade rebate appears to be running late.

Would be wrong as hell if it ran a 'month' late and no one could use their rebate points during this October sale.

I'm mean I got the 2400 to blow so I'm straight but Comic Jumper and Super Meat Boy aren't the only things I want this month.
