Since I am not planning to get MW3 right now, what are the best black ops map packs to get if they are discounted tomorrow?

I'll be in for a season pass since apparently I've made Gears 3 my MP game of the moment. Plus I wanna play as Raam and experience any other cool stuff Epic has in store.

You youngsters crack me up.
I remember shelling out $50 for Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 on release day.
Yes, it was crap. But, it was a huge upgrade from my Sears Pong.



We got a Sears Telegames system in 1979.
It came with the game Combat.

At this rate i'm expecting Call of Duty Elite to be on Sale next


Keep dreaming brah. None of the Blops map packs have been on sale. You think(EXPECT) elite to go on sale after 6 weeks? I hope(not expect) that you don't come in here crying tomorrow when we "maybe" get some blops packs discounted and hopefully CoD classic for 400 points and Elite isn't discounted

Gears pass is the first thing that's tempted me this whole sale, but I don't think I'm going to pull the trigger. Been burned out on gears ever since re-playing the campaign on insane a while back, and Battlefield 3 has since taken over as the go to multiplayer game for me and my friends. Plus, the relative frequency of Halo map pack sales throughout the year makes me think this will be discounted again. Also there's the inevitable GOTY edition to consider, which may have all the season pass content plus more.

I got GOW3 a few weeks ago, haven't finished the campaign since I haven't had much time for it, but I'm planning on getting into the multiplayer. I was a big big fan of the 1st and 2nd.

What does the season pass offer? What content is out for it so far and what is planned?

If you want to see riots in the virtual streets, putting ELITE on sale would do it.

2 packs are out now: Horde Command Pack (800 points) which is mainly stuff added to multiplayer and Ramm's Shadow (1200 points) which adds some multiplayer stuff and a new campaign that focuses on both gears and locust.
There are two more packs coming the next one Fenix Rising coming out next month that features more multiplayer stuff.

Thanks. I'll look into both packs that are out now. I thought I had read somewhere that Ramm's shadow wasn't included in the season pass.

I saw its worth it to get the Season Pass now since it is 200 less than the two packs out now and you still get two dlc packs later on.

3rd dlc comes out next month and is like the 1st one. No story stuff, but adds a good amount of maps, 2 kinda rehashed characters, and maybe some horde stuff.

Gears 3 season pass on sale tomorrow for 1800, another slap to the face to people who bought it on first day. They should give more to first day purchasers than people who get it on sale. Too bad if they ever do something nice to first day purchasers, I won't get jack shit because last time I had trouble with purchasing the RAMM DLC and trying to get my 1200 points refunded, MS gave me this bullshit about how I never purchased the season pass at all. Took two tries and they finally caved in and gave me my 1200 points back giving me a warning that they can't do refunds like that. Sucks the big ones to the hardcore fans out there buying season passes on day one.

It looks like you can't purchase a damn thing anymore on X-Live because it'll be on sale in the next three to four months now. This is what I've been doing but knowing that I love Gears, I had to get the season pass day one.

the only dlc map related was the free one. Ive been playing alot lately and it seems that the dlc maps all go in a row back to back once one is locked in. You should have no problem getting to play the maps. Might take a match or two.

I will ask again:

If you can't place a value on being the first to own/play something as well as the time you had it until it went on sale, why are you buying early and at the launch price?

Was hoping that the Season Pass would be 33% off, but I definitely expected the 1800 price after Forza. Definitely going to pick it up; I learned my lesson to wait for Gears stuff to go on sale after the All Fronts Map Pack for Gears 2, and then playing it very little, and then it being available for 1/3 of the price in no time :)

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

Alright, in for the Season Pass. Can't pass it up at 1800 when I was willing to pay 2400 but didn't get around to it.

Now the question is do I purchase the Gold Lancer prop? I've never purchased any avatar gear. I generally think it's a waste of money. But with it being delisted soon and unavailable, I suddenly feel the need to purchase it. What the heck is wrong with me?

I think the one reason why people who bought the GOW3 Season Pass early
deserve to be pissed is that not all the DLC has been release yet. Basically they got the first DLC 2 months before those buying it on sale and RAAM's shadow 2 week early. Unlike some other Season Passes like LA Noire and MK that had all the content released by the time the pass went on sale. I know they are doing this to keep interest in the game and get the fence sitters but the timing is a bit crappy for the early buyers.

THIS. Even being a hardcore Gears fan I'm also a CAG. The Horde pack was pathetic and while I enjoyed R. Shadow DLC I easily could have waited the what? Couple weeks for this sale and saved a good amount of points. Neither of the first 2 pay for DLCs were must have early purchases.
The end of an era, RIP Amazon.

I think the only problem in this case is the amount of time you get to use it early before the sale. 2 month for one, 2 weeks for another and nothing for the final 2. I am happy to be on the right side of this deal but I understand the discontent some are feeling.

This type of business model is going to see decreasing returns if they keep following this time frame for putting passes on sale.

Don't forget that all gun-type Avatar Props will be delisted on January 1st because apparently the Xbox is a toy for children, so if you want to pay money to play manly virtual dressup then this could be your best... SHOT.

But no, definitely grabbing it before MS tries to pry it out of my cold, dead hands.

Exactly! I really don't think season passes should go on sale tbh with you. They should just put the DLC on sale individually.

I'll leave it at this: I'm sure everyone can now safely say "Wait for when season passes to go on sale" when they launch.
