Some NeoGAF person is saying these are the missing deals/days:

Games on Demand (18-31)
Rock Band 3 GonD
Bully 360 GonD

December 22nd
Tony Hawk

December 26th
Counter-Strike: GO


Seems a little light to me compared to the rest of the sale, but who knows. If this is legit, hopefully there's more to it than this.

i believe it cause tony hawks not on summer of arcade section but that is few GoD
looks like im buying forza horizon rally Tuesday instead of waiting for 22nd and 26th deals to hope season pass was on sale :D

i don't consider that to be light, tony hawk and counterstrike being added to the sale means that every major xbla release this year will be on sale for the holidays

blows away last years holiday sale

I think he was just refering to the ammount of games on demand compared to the arcade that will be on sale the whole time

. . .except for a little game called Minecraft. ;) (Which I wouldn't put on sale, either, if I were them--seems to be selling just fine as it is.)

I'm the last person to complain about Microsoft's sales, so it's not that, it's just odd to me that something like Counter Strike would get it's very own day, or that there's only two G.o.D. in the long sale compared to the 13 XBLA games. Or that Tony Hawk wouldn't be included with the Summer of Arcade sale day instead.

blows away last years holiday sale

That it does, if the prices are good (and I think they will be).

Bully has been $15 since November 5, according to XBLDB. I think that was a permanent price drop.

This is what the OP says:

Might be price reductions, or might be sale prices

It's "on sale" the same way all the old Rock Band tracks are "on sale."

As much as I like having a wrestler named DOUBLE ANAL wrestling against my friends, I got to say that "Fire Pro Wrestling" is much too simple for me to want to purchase. So that's one off my list it seems.

The Rock Band songs will go back to their normal price at some point since they are on sale.

If Bully and all of those games are permanent price drops, then they should be removed since those are the normal prices now. They're no longer on sale and thus do not belong in the OP.

Agreed. They're all permanent price drops, not sales. I don't know why they were added to the OP to begin with. MS has been dropping the prices of Games on Demand across the board all year long.

Disagreed on Rock Band, though--Harmonix won't say it for obvious reasons, but for all intents and purposes, that is a permanent price drop.

Posted this in the 360 thread but thought I would drop it here since more people will see it.

Id and Bethesda releasing RAGE DLC "The Scorchers" this Tues 12/18 for $5 (400 MS Points)

http://www.ign.com/a....-scorchers-dlc

Personally I am really excited to go back for what looks like a sizable amount of content for only $5.

Update:

"Bethesda has officially confirmed The Scorchers downloadable content for Rage. According to a blog post on Bethesda’s official site, The Scorchers will hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC next week for $4.99 (400 Microsoft Points).

Bethesda writes that “in this brand-new adventure spanning six all-new areas, you will fight alongside new allies to defend the Hager Settlment from a maniacal bandit clan known as The Scorchers. Along the way, you’ll participate in a new season of Mutant Bash TV, encounter new mini-games, and wield the overpowering and brutal Nailgun.”

In addition to new content, the pack also includes the new Ultra Nightmare difficulty and an Extended Play option that lets you play past the original ending of the game, “giving you the opportunity to finish collecting items and achievements.”"

This reminds me. For you achievement people out there, while the achievements are easy to get (with a bit of a grind), there is one achievement which is currently unobtainable. Supposedly one of the bonus matches never appears, and you need to do all three for an achievement. People have tried to get in touch with the developer to so far no avail.

More reason for me not to give a funk. Not the cheezmints mind you, but the fact they don't give a hoot to respond back to such a simple matter. The novelty of wrestling as my Avatar against other friends sounds pretty cool, but I can't imagine the game getting anywhere as fun as any of the actual Fire Pro, N64 or Smackdown games. That and there's no match variety from the looks of it. I Just want to smack my friend in the face with a steel chair or slam them unconscious through a table before again hitting them with a steel chair. In short, I want my hipster avatar just to randomly bludgeon Master Chief for my own dumb self indulgence.

Some NeoGAF person is saying these are the missing deals/days:

Games on Demand (18-31)
Rock Band 3 GonD
Bully 360 GonD

December 22nd
Tony Hawk

December 26th
Counter-Strike: GO


Seems a little light to me compared to the rest of the sale, but who knows. If this is legit, hopefully there's more to it than this.

I don't like that sales, specially I don't like the GoD one. But well, there already are a lot of things that I want to buy, so this way is better I guess.

I can only guess that's only the first disc of the game. According to to this post there's more to download. And over here it sounds like they have you download the second disc after you've finished playing the first disc.

I'm not sure these will be the deals, I didn't see anyone post any actual "source" on these, unless I missed something...

IDK offhand but it could always be optimized. When you have multiple DVDs you have a lot of redundant data, like the character textures and animations, that need to be on all 3 DVDs. If you optimize it for one download, it only needs to be there once.

I believe you press X or Y on your Xbox controller to make it change to microsoft points instead of $.
