Not a deal but Spec Ops The Line demo drops today. Kind of surprised since it won't release for another month.

Ugh, the track packs are for Guitar Hero. Seriously, people still play GH over RB?


At least anyone who purchases these, it will go towards the May Xbox Live reward of the month. But I do agree, GH deals is lame. There hasn't been a discount on RB stuff since the Bon Jovi tracks were 25% off in August.....maybe HMX going independent has anything to do with that?

I do find it hilarious that the Megadeth pack has the Band Hero cover art over on Spylon's site. When I see Band Hero I automatically think of Taylor Swift LOL

Not when it goes on sale for PC for <$10 every other week.


Of course, duh! I didn't ever realize that PC deals were also valid for Xbox 360.

Luckily, today's Rage Against The Machine track pack will take care of that for me!

Not sure if you were paying attention, but the point was that it's a downloadable title, and if the price for a digital copy goes as low as it does on other platforms, there's no reason for MS to keep their inflated GoD prices, as it just makes the entire GoD platform look like it's meant to scam money away from idiots, rather than provide quality games at a cheaper price than you could find at retail (which is what a download service should be). True, they don't have to do it since they have a monopoly on X360 downloadable games, but that hardly helps the GoD image.

What's sad is that it's still stupidly easy to find a retail copy of the game (which, remember, is more valuable than a digital copy) for less than what MS charges most of the time.

It's not like he's complaining about MS not matching a Steam sale. This is the same game sold by the same freaking company for drastically different prices.

Yeah, I didn't mean to pick on you personally. My point was only that, unfortunately, we all still have to pay the "console tax" thanks to the big 3 not allowing publisher control over pricing or realistic sales on full games.

I completely agree that the GoD service is pretty useless most of the time due to the absurd pricing. It's such a shame because they've built a great library that has a lot of potential. A Steam-like sale system would be one of my favorite features if it ever arises for the next console generation. I'm never going to accept the demise of physical media for consoles when they're charging more for the digital version that has no flexibility or resale value!

On another note, does anyone else ever wish they would ever do another sale on original XBLA classic arcade ports like Super Contra or Frogger? Unfortunately, I know the Midway titles are out of the picture. It seems like such a missed opportunity on games that can't be selling incredibly well. They're already cheap so a sale would make them no-brainers to pick up. I'd love to have an incentive to run through these again. I remember very few and far between sales on Contra and a couple of Atari titles but that's it.

OP looks good. Only thing I'd suggest is just to get rid of the cat/dog/crackdown 2/mass effect avatar stuff that you have mentioned. I know they're still technically "on sale", but they're really not that special of deals and just avatar props. Or maybe just put them in a tiny little section at the bottom, but I feel like they make the OP look sloppy the way they are now.

I just checked xbox rewards and I have the triple play points pending, but unfortunately there aren't any deals for me this week. It was just Haunt and Nin2-Jump for me this past week. Hoping for some good deals next week.

For some reason I was expecting a "Superhero" themed sale after reading the title which would make sense with the Avengers out.

Wasn't expecting DJ/Guitar Hero, lol!

Yes, it's the better, more fun game in my opinion, I own all of the current gen GH games and all but Green Day Rock Band and can tell you from my perspective that GH is much more fun than Rock Band, by miles, I just like GHs gameplay, visuals and characters much more, as well as the music and charting, while Rock Band's charts may be "more accurate" GH's charts are usually much more fun. I am a solo guitar player btw.

Same here. I finally pulled the game out of my backlog and beat it a couple days ago and got pumped when I saw "DE:HR" in the title. :(

As am I. I pre-ordered GOW3 from Amazon. After the credit and flipping the game, I owned it for a month and made 12$. I knew I would buy the Epic edition when it dropped and did just that with the Best Buy price drop today. However, I didn't buy the season pass when it was on sale and now I am probably going to be sitting around for a while, waiting.:cry:

Yeah I didn't think I would get GOW 3 again after I sold it but the drop on EE made me want to play and damn is this game still fun.

I noticed there are three items missing from the "DLC Disc" section. Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition, Fallout New Vegas: Ultimate Edition, and Mafia II Platinum Hits Edition all contain DLC that is installed with a second disc.

The only issue I have with Games on Demand is that Microsoft doesn't seem to want to be aggressive in pushing the service forward with better sales to get more people on board. Putting stuff on sale for 25-33% off isn't going to get much interest beyond those that already do get those games, but 50% off or $10 on $20-$30 games would be a great way to turn some heads and drum up some excitement for those games.
