Looks like Kinect Sparkler isn't on sale, at least for now.

Picked up the Kinect Sports DLC and the other one that's free. Each of them have 250 achievement points. Now I just need to get the game.

Your wish has been granted. Kinect Anniversary sales are showing up live on my dash now. Here's all the deals

Kinect Anniversary October 23-November 5
Dance Central Packs 1-4 - 640 points each 33% off
DC Pack 5 - 480 points 33% off
DC Packs 6-7 - 960 points each 33% off
DC Marathon Pack 1 - 1400 points 58% off
DC Marathon Pack 2 - 1500 points 58% off
DC track "I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas - 160 points 33% off

Your Shape Fitness Evolved: Toned Body Add on - 160 points 50% off
Kinect Sparkler - 80 points 67% off
Kinect Sports Calorie Challenge Pack - 160 points 50% off
Carnival Games Monkey Dancin Pack - 200 points 50% off
Carnival Games Coastrama Pack - 160 points 50% off
Red Foam Finger(avatar) - 160 points 55% off
Kinectimals Canadian Lynx pet(avatar) - 120 points 50% off
Kinectimals Asiatic Cheetah pet(avatar) - 120 points 50% off


Seems like there are some decent ones in there with a few repeats. Overall, pretty good I'd say if you own a Kinect. Since I JUST bought a Kinect from a friend($75), I might bite on Kinect Sparkler and the Calorie Challenge Pack. Those Dance Centrals tracks are a massive deal if you haven't bought em yet

YES! I Know now thanks. Though I HATE how they bundle the songs for the individual packs, not by release, but really by sheer random. Eitherway I got the Marathon pack 2 eventhough I owned some of the songs already since I end up saving 420 points versus buying the ones I needed individually. Though NOW I have all the DC songs out.

Also for anyone curious what's in the Marathon Pack 2...

Curses! I just bought 2 Dance Central songs! Hopefully I can still find a pack that has stuff I don't own. Overall that's a pretty awesome sale though.

still not seeing some of the items that were listed earlier in this sale as being on sale or on the dash. If they aren't up by tomorrow I will take them out of the OP.

I'm also going to put the song contents under the DLC. Sadly the Marathon packs are missing a couple songs from different packs, so if you want them all you need to purchase them separately.

I was in the middle of double-checking which ones. But it looks like it's only Marathon Pack 1 that's missing tracks from Packs 1-4.

Marathon Pack 2 has all tracks from Packs 5-7


EDIT: Ok, Marathon 1 contains all of Packs 1-4 EXCEPT "We Run This"-Missy Elliott (from Dance Pack 1), "Temperature"-Sean Paul (from Dance Pack 3), and "Le Freak"-Chic (from Dance Pack 4) ... It also contains "I Gotta Feeling"-The Black Eyed Peas which is not in any of the Track Packs.

If my list is correct:
“We Run This” - Missy Elliott
“Temperature” - Sean Paul
“Le Freak” - Chic
Are the only one not in the marathon packs so you have to buy them as singles if you buy the Marathon Packs.

Eastx, that list will save me some work.

Maybe during X-Mas but even Black Friday is less than 2 months for these games. Even then I wouldn't expect either to go on sale till next year.

Dungeon Defenders is WORTH EVERY penny if you enjoyed the demo. The game is freaking amazing. It honestly has more to it than a lot of 60 dollar releases IMO.

Orcs Must Die is already doing weapon / spell DLC packs, so buyer beware on it. I think in the end if you buy the whole thing it might cost a arm and a leg. It's nowhere near the game that DD is IMO, I played through it at friends house in a afternoon. Fun but very flawed and the asking price of 15 bucks is crazy, at 10 it'd make sense.

Dungeon Defenders has 4 different classes, multiple ways to spec each, CRAZY deep itemization, 14 maps and lots of different game modes and difficulties. Oh yeah, and online play. It just does everything better.

Also, for those trying to get the best deal for their Dance Central bucks:

The total cost of getting Marathon Pack 1 plus the 3 missing tracks (@ 240 MSP each) is 2120 MSP
vs
The cost of getting Track Packs 1-4 plus "I Gotta Feeling" (which is only in the Marathon Pack) is 2720 MSP

Yeah, I am considering getting all the DLC. That's 3620 or $45.25..... maybe not.

Yeah I know the specs on both games, but after paying full price (1200) for Black Light, Torchlight, Clash of Heroes, Vandal Hearts and Monday Night Combat and not felling fully satisfied with my purchase, I've made up my mind not to purchase XBLA games at release-date price (1200 or higher). Thank god I hold off on Breach. That game was just god awful.
I tried out both demos and thoroughly enjoyed them.
I know OMD and DD will be on sale someday, but I've heard nothing but good news about those two that it's making it difficult to stand firm to aforementioned my resolve.
But I must resist, for I'll be getting BF3 tomorrow.

Anyway just asking...;)

That's what I am thinking, but DC2 won't make it into my 360 for a while. I'm holding out for a Kinect sale to line up with my extra cash (cure you TRU sale!) so I can pick up DC2, Gunstringer, and SS:OUaM (gift).

yep, pretty much... if everyone would just wait the prices would come down and if everyone stuck to it, then it would be real price drops instead of just a sale.

DC is one of the games I'm considering getting (still waiting for a Kinect price drop, though). But unfortunately, being a white kid from the suburbs completely destroyed any chance I ever had of being able to dance... or have any sense of rhythm.

I remember not being able to get the hang of DDR. (Many years and 40 pounds ago...)

While I agree on some levels, you can only present the same info so many ways. While I took the info from Eastx's list, the OP looks the same as if I would have manually pulled the info from xbox.com myself.

My pet peeve is when someone straight copy and pastes the OP and doesn't even mention CAG, this thread, or even post here about the deals.

I find it best not to critique others work as it leaves me open to be critiqued.

True, but that's a very big "if." people complained about $10 price point on arcade games but the market still allowed it to grow to $15. Same with call of duty map packs but the market continues to allow $15.

No, a copy editor is someone who edits the original article for the original source. My article contains original text which I wrote, hence I wrote the article. Did I create the list of stuff that's on sale? Of course not. But I never said that I was the first person to list the content of the packs. I just did it a bit better (listing the songs uniformly before the artists instead of randomly, adding the Black-Eyed Peas song, etc.), and I have every right to promote my article as long as I properly cite my sources.

After thinking about it for a while, I finally decided to buy Metro 2033. $22 is about the used price, and I have a lot of Microsoft Points. Can't wait to finish downloading it!


So how is it? Worth the bucks? Still haven't paid for mine yet, still on the fence about it....Leaning towards getting Tales of Vesperia for $29.99 ($39.99 used at GS) instead of Metro. Seems to have more play value....
