Just like any DLC add-on that isn't Rock Band in the marketplace! :D


Yeah this should be no different, but there will ~1000 price drops tomorrow so finding the 5 or so non Rock band ones in that list may be hard. I'm trying to see if I can scan the Rock Band ones first. That will put them at the end of the history.

It would be nice if Microsoft chose to send out random emails wanting feedback on the beta to improve it as they go. They may be and it just wasn't knowledge to me, I just hope it gets better.

There's a whole forum for users to post their feedback.

I did know about the forums, though I do appreciate letting me know just incase. I just meant on a more individual bases. Nothing against forums, as I support this one, I just know when feedback is asked for people can go a bit off the rails. None the less it's a matter of "wait and see" either way.

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.

Beatles DLC will NEVER be compatible with the Rock Band franchise (including RB3 & RB-Blitz), but will only work with "The Beatles - Rock Band" ... that was a core stipulation of the contract to avoid devaluing their brand.

Word to the wise ... rather than hoping xbldb.com catches all the track-packs & individual songs tied to each pack, I'd like to remind y'all that the Rock Band Music Store is still a great way to navigate the RB tracks & track-packs. It won't isolate what's on sale, but it DOES allow you to see which individual tracks are associated with larger collections, so that you don't mistakenly purchase both track-packs & individual-tracks (thereby purchasing items "twice"), plus it also allows you to preview the songs before purchasing.

On a general note ... geez, what a lot of thread-crapping on a Monday! Come on, folks, get happy! :D

Never say never. They might finally realize they're losing out on more potential royalties and change their minds. Remember how long they held out from putting their music on iTunes? (And yeah, yeah, I get that there was a trademark dispute over the "Apple" name being associating with selling music, too... but still).

And the Rock Band sale announcement couldn't make me happier. I wish they'd staggered the sales as a weekly RB deal instead of dumping it all on us at once, though. Even after triaging which track packs I absolutely want, I'll still be spending $200 in one go.

Reminder to all that the "Crazy Game Time" deals are still valid on 4000 point cards, and though I've placed at least 5 orders in the last 4 weeks, I'll probably give them another $78 tonight ... and my order placed just 5 min's ago was billed & redeemed flawlessly. :D

You'll find their links @ CAG's "XBL points & GOLD subscription" thread here:
http://www.cheapassg...d.php?p=6721848

If you need XBL GOLD subscription time, they supposedly have a deal for 9/17 only, and the coupon code can be found in the thread's OP as well.

I agree. It was so overwhelming tonight to figure out what to buy. I don't want to go overboard and I am at 2 packs (No Doubt/Rush) and close to 50 singles.

For the record, I ragged DDN for being a half-brawler. I think that's true in SP, but with the addition of a second player and all the double damage, health sharing, et al, the game becomes MUCH more like a proper beat-em-up just by the numbers game you can now win.

I still like the game in both its formats. If it were $15 I would blanch, and even at $10 it's probably a little much when the soundtrack is PWYW and easily half the value of the game, but it's a fun ride and Wayforward can at least throw a rip-roaring final battle, even if the only good way to beat most of it is with Fireball.

Just for completeness sake, my bro-op partner quickly wanted to play Shank 2 again and I don't blame him. For fluidity, solid mechanics, and gruesome satisfaction, ain't nobody touching Shank 2 any time soon. The list of things I wouldn't do for more Shank is getting embarrassingly small.

The original Zuma is hard as hell. You can buy a lot of frustration for $2.50 if that's what you're looking for. I would skip it and pick up the sequel when it goes on sale. I have both and Revenge is infinitely more playable.

Bejeweled Blitz is a waste. Pick up any other Bejeweled game and you'll be far better off.


Completely with you on this. Whoever said the first Zuma is easy... Come on, stop bragging. Very few people are able to complete that game, whereas Zuma's Revenge is both beatable and a major improvement in lots of ways.

It's always been the go-to game for all my friends when we'd hang out. Most of us were in band or garage bands in high school so that might have something to do with it.

I beat it once, and it was frustrating as hell. Took me months to do, and one night I finally did it. Zuma's Revenge is far easier.

Meh. I love Rock Band, and a lot of those songs rock, I'll snag a few Snoop Dogg songs and maybe a SOAD song. I'm bummed that it's only pre-RB3. Before Rock Band 3 was when I spent most of the money on songs. Had it been post-RB3, I'd sink at least $100 on this sale. Here's hoping to that!

Buying the Jimi Hendrix albums, No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom, STP pack, Neon Trees pack, Disturbed 03 and Green Day 02. And like 30 singles, so that's a little over $60. The rest of the stuff on that list, I have what I want. And I have 1,100+ songs in my RB library. So I can't buy much more :cry:

Such an awesome sale!!!!!!!! :bouncy:

This Rock Band sale couldn't have come at a worse time for me. Then again, there's probably no way in hell I could have ever entertained the idea of buying every fucking song... and believe me, if I had the money, I would. :p

Not a bad time to stock up on the industrial rock tunes I'm missing, though.

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 remember all the way back in June of 2012, Sega announced a Sonic 21st anniversary sale. Prices of Sonic games on Steam, iOS, PSN, and XBL were on discount, and it was the Deal of the Week for gold members. While safe to say the Rockband sale may not coincide with DotW, there has been precedence where a publisher made an announcement of discounts and the Live team just decides to lock the deals behind a paid subscription. Personally, I hope the Rockband sale is just a concurrent sale along with a separate offering for DotW.



NiGHTS & Sonic Adventure 2 confirmed for Oct. 5th, 800 MSP each. For 240 MSP, you can get the Battle Mode DLC for SA2, which is the extra maps & characters for multiplayer that were added in the GCN version of the game, along with Chao Karate.

& NiGHTS does come with the Christmas NiGHTS expansion included for free.


YES! I loved NiGHTS: Into Dreams and its special demo Christmas NiGHTS! Along with Jet Set Radio, which I think is this Wednesday, Sega brings some of my favorites to XBLA. NiGHTS and JSR are games I'd gladly spend 800MSP on release!


Yeah, give it a few more months, & I'm sure Sega will put those Vintage Collections on sale sometime. They do so many downloadable sales, you can pretty much guarantee if it's a XBLA/PSN game, it's been/will be on sale.

Not sure on another Dreamcast Collection. NiGHTS is a Saturn game, which wouldn't work, though maybe they could have JSR, SA2, Nights, & Daytona and call it something like Dreamcast & Saturn Collection.

Sonic Adventure was part of the Dreamcast Collection with Sega Bass Fishing, Crazy Taxi, & Space Channel 5 Part 2 (speaking of which, when's the original gonna be on XBLA/PSN?)



I am also waiting on the Sega Vintage Collection offerings to get discounts because not only do I love the Streets of Rage (Bare Knuckle) and Golden Axe series, they are emulated well unlike the previous offerings on XBLA (and Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection/Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection). Also I only want Revenge of Shinobi/The Super Shinobi and Monster World IV but those two titles are bundled with two others that I have no interest in the Sega Vintage Collection sets, so those I really want at a discount.


This just makes me go through my Sega Saturn and Dreamcast collection to look for some more Sega titles I'd love to hit XBLA. A sampling of what I figure would be nice:
Spoiler


Those would be great Sega titles on XBLA ... at a discount ^^. I didn't even mention the titles from the Genesis/Mega Drive they've still not placed on XBLA.



This.

Also, [insert generic "Does anyone know what the deals for this week are?" comment here]


You ruined it! We were going to have a dark Monday to Tuesday without the question =(

I Think Power Stone 2 is the biggest Dreamcast game I've been clamoring and wanting on XBLA. Especially with online play. That and maybe Cannon Spike, since one of the few unknown gems from Capcom on that console that also had Megaman as a playable character.

Jeez, the Dreamcast had so many more gems and classics than that. Like little Bardok said, Power Stone 2 and Cannon Spike would definitely be cool.
