Whoa, that is really going to overload the xbldb history. The site should be fine but other sales may be lost in between the Rock Band sale.

It's so hard to navigate the marketplace for the free stuff. I don't live anywhere near a Hastings unfortunately. I'm sure that stuff get's snatched up quickly online.

This made it easy lol.

If a Rock Band game is in you last 5 games played you can also use the "my free addons" on xbldb:

The only real variance is the $9.99/800 MS Point deals. Everything else is pretty much standard. Since a majority of these packs are included in the $.99 singles can mix and match without much discrepancy in the price for the smaller song bundles.

  • The Pixies - Doolittle (Album) 14 Tracks $0.71/ppt
  • The Best of The Who Rock Band Edition 12 Tracks $0.83/ppt
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik (Album) 17 Tracks $0.59/ppt
  • The Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape (Album) 12 Tracks $0.83/ppt
  • No Doubt - The Singles 1992-2003 (Album) 13 Tracks $0.77/ppt
  • Guns N’ Roses - Chinese Democracy (Album) 13 Tracks $0.77/ppt
  • Iron Maiden Pack 01 12 Tracks $0.83/ppt
  • The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis: Bold as Love (Album) 12 Tracks $0.83/ppt
  • No Doubt Tragic Kingdom: The Complete Album 14 Tracks $0.71/ppt
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival Pack 01 12 Tracks $0.83/ppt
  • Bob Marley - Legend (Album) 13 Tracks $0.77/ppt
  • Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced: Rock Band Edition (Album) 12 Tracks $0.83/ppt

  • $8.49 10 Tracks $0.85/ppt
  • $7.49 9 Tracks $0.83/ppt
  • $6.99 8 Tracks $0.87/ppt

http://www.rockband....ad.php?t=231797

http://www.rockband....saleGraphic.pdf

One thing to note is that ALL of the DLC on sale is pre-RB3 meaning it will NOT have harmonies, pro-guitar support or keyboard support. All of these songs will work fine in Rock Band 3, but you just won't have the harmonies, pro guitar or keys options when you select your instruments for the song.

Also, I wonder if this will count as the Deal of the Week or as just a separate sale.

Well SoaB. I only have a few thousand points stockpiled and this could easily consume them. Really going to need another good point sale soon.

For the most part this is true, but some of the older songs do have pro-guitar upgrade packs you can opt to buy. Also, some of the Pearl Jam and Green Day songs (not sure about any others) do support vocal harmonies.

Beatles DLC is probably the only thing I'd buy, but I don't see any of their songs on sell, unless I missed it somewhere.

ok so what's wrong with bejeweled blitz? i played the demo, it seemed ok. the twist mode gave me a headache so i will not play that, but classic seemed alright. is it always timed that short? but the important question i have is, is the online community big for it? the only reason i'd get it is to be able to play online for a few games whenever i felt like it once in a while. can you always get a game? or is it dead like bubble bobble?

I'd make an account on Facebook and play it there. It's free. Or get it for your iOS device (or probably Android - I presume it's there).

well to me <$2 w points discount is close to free. i only dont wanna clutter my gamelist if im just gonna delete it though. hexic is really similar and i already got that at launch for free, but since this has 2 player it seems like something i'd play for 5 or 10 minutes and move on, which, if this were an actual arcade that'd buy me about 4 rounds.

there's not much info on this game online though. you can't bring a couch partner online can you? it says 16 players online but 2 local and you can't try online in the demo

For anyone who is interested in Midway delisted games, disc compilation is coming in November.

Interestingly, the GameStop link no longer works. Guess they put the listing up before they were actually suppose to.

Anyways, if it's suppose to contain all the delisted Midway games, I'm going to assume it'll have the following:

- Robotron: 2084
- Cyberball: 2072
- Defender
- Gauntlet
- Joust
- Paperboy
- Root Beer Tapper
- Smash TV

Not sure if the MK games would be included along with them, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did since it'd fit the "Arcade Origins" thing going on.

I hope the Rock Band stuff isn't the only deal this week. I'm not fond of what, to me, is a glorified version of "Simon".

No disrespect to those who like it, but I'm hoping for other deals this week.

No disrespect taken. FWIW I feel like Call of Duty is just a glorified version of Wolfenstein. :P

Because of the way this was announced and the fact that the sale spans multiple platforms I think it's pretty safe to say this will be open to everyone and there will be different content for the regular DotW.

I already have Robotron and Joust, but I'll buy it for the others. My kids will be thrilled that it has Gauntlet. Would be nice if they added some new (to Xbox) games, like Gauntlet 2, but that's probably a pipe dream.

Any idea on what GoD may get the discount this week? Also is anyone having issues concerning the DoTW in conjunction with the Beta? I can only access the gold deals through the app or Xbox.com, otherwise under fames on the dash it has an icon still professing that the Babel Riwing game is still on sale.

that's why i still never used my code lol. old dash is so slow but at least i can get all the discounts. its so stupid that sonic went down to 400 but the other games from dreamcast collection didn't. i need crazy taxi and i sold dc collection bc only those 2 games were worth playing on it anyway and they'd be better off the HD, and CT is worth 800 but sonic adventure is 400? if anything people would likely pay more for sonic

I think Chrono is probably right, I don't think MS will make this Rock Band sale the DotW because then it locks it behind Gold and since Rock Band is advertising this stuff independently, I don't think they'd want that to happen.

I'm in the Beta and yeah, they had issues with the previous BTS sale where only page 1 of 4 would show, while pages 2, 3 and 4 would just show the infinite spinning circle. They took it all down and just had Babel Rising showing up in the traditional sale spot, which is no longer even on sale. Guess they never got around to updating it for the Popcap stuff this week.

I've just been keeping up with sales online and just go find the game in the marketplace and purchase it that way.

Yeah I was doing that for the most part as well. I just knew some weekly GoD sales (the 25-33% 1 week drops) weren't showing up. Hopefully they get it taken care of. Had a weird glitch where my Xbox froze after leaving the sales and specials app as well.

I like Bejeweled Blitz and got it the last time it was 200 msp. I think most complaints are from that fact that it's a mini game that is included in other Bejeweled games and original price was 800 msp. The game is always timed, thus the Blitz part. I can't comment on the online.

From my understanding, there's one achievement ("Game Master") that's glitched, which is the one you get for beating the game under default settings without using a continue.

Maybe we'll get lucky & they'll put more than just the delisted XBLA games on there, considering they did 3 of those compilation discs (Midway Treasures) on PS2/Xbox/GCN.

Per the old Dash the GOD game this week is Batman Arkham Asylum but it never dropped. It still says $29.99 even when buying thru the dash and like you said xbldb did not catch it.
