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:
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.
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 =(
