I know it's had to have been said, but it bares repeating. RDR normal edition is 19.99 on Amazon...well it's that normally, it's actually 19.36 on "sale" at the moment. Anyway consider that if you prefer physical media but want the game and/or have Prime.

This sale has really highlighted how it really sucks that we can't use our own hdds. My 250 gig filled up weeks ago, now I've bought Rayman Origins and don't have enough room to download it.

You can always re-download ANYTHING that you have downloaded in the past, so I don't see how it could really be an issue with a 250 gig drive.

Tried Mark of the Ninja and, oh boy... that game deserves all the praise it's been collecting! The art style, narrative, soundtrack and multiple approaches to every situation, there's really everything a stealth lover can wish for!

Then, I booted up the Xbox SmartGlass app lured by the fabled "enhanced experience" and expecting some nice touches like a minimap or an inventory screen managed through my smartphone, but all I've got is a lousy page with links to the official site and community and a short recap of the game's controls.
Talk about disappointment... :booty:

Snatched Fez too, the demo was entertaining and visually appealing, hope the rest will be up to standard :)

I wouldn't consider it an issue as much as I would an inconvenience. I keep a tidy list of what I've had to knock off my hard drive (some huge XBLA games, DLC for games I don't even own yet, etc.) but I would rather just keep all the things on there, obviously.

I draw the line at touching my roughly 21 GB Rock Band song collection though. Making sure I actually redeemed all my 250+ free tunes from the 2009 Pepsi promo was enough of a pain in the ass. All that trash rummaging was worth it though :lol:

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

I also finally tried Mark of the Ninja last night, and then bought it for 600. Pretty sweet game. Love the artstyle and the demo was really fun. I'm looking forward to playing it more tonight.

I also bought Trine 2 and Fez. So that today's deals are lame, I don't mind. I'm happy. :)

I've so far picked up so many platformers, Fez, Mark of the Ninja, Super Meat Boy and Trine 2. And there is still Deadlight...

What are you guys hoping for with the unclear sales? I wish Crysis and I Am Alive would happen. Unlikely.

Not Double Dragon! It loads up as a trial and says it's not available when I try to d/l it again.

I can't play Test Drive Unlimited either. It says something about cannot load game, DLC no longer available.

ms wont fix such things they can care less about stuff they got paid for. The companies these days tell us what we want. bow down cause we lost most rights like this. They know we wont even do anything these days. I bowed down long ago and take what scrapes they give me. :bouncy::bouncy::bouncy::bouncy: sad cause it is pretty much true. haha

The Mad Catz plastic instruments sale still seems to be going on, as well as the Dance Central 3 song packs sale (is that really a sale, or just normal price)? Both show in the OP as ending on the 17th. FYI.

Also the platformers from yesterday still seem to be on sale. At least some of them, anyway.

Looks like just the Rayman Origins sale ended, though it went on sale earlier than the others. There will still probably be someone who will say they missed it.

OP is updated.

I don't think you'll regret it. I really enjoyed the MotN demo. I can't wait to play it some more tonight.

Seeing MotN still at 600 this morning, I checked out the Quick Look and it looks great. So, I'm rethinking my countdown purchase plan. For those who've played both, would you get Dust or MotN for 600? (don't have points for both)

Edit: What the hell. Picked up MotN & will try to pick up some extra points to get me through the sale.

I've played both to nearly 100% completion. They're probably my two favorite XBLA games of the year. They're both extremely impressive in their own ways. Ninja solves the problem of how to make stealth games fun. Dust shows what one talented person working really, really hard can accomplish. (It's also a great "Metroidvania" game if you like that subgenre). I'd probably give Ninja the slightest edge as a game experience but I think the Dust guy deserves our money for making such an impressive game almost entirely single-handedly.

Didn't heed the warning about Midnight Club's higher MSP price, and they ended up getting 280 extra points than they should have out of me. Bummer.

Thank you for your feedback. Each's game 'style' is impressive, but it's good to hear that both hold up in the 'substance' department too.Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong picking up either of these games. I'm definitely not feeling buyer's remorse after picking up Ninja, I just need to get some more points so I can pick up Dust too.

So far, the next day's sale content has been on sale on xbox.com a day in advance. Tony Hawk HD is not on sale yet. That's not good. I have points with its name on them, I may give in and buy it full price tomorrow if it's not on sale.

Picked up Bully, RAW, and Rock Band 3. I had Rock Band 3 but going to give my disc to a friend who doesn't. Think I'll like it being on the hard drive and will probably play it more.
