I believe they are, but I don't buy points from places like that and Play Asia because their prices are too high. On eBay I get 800 international points for about $12.


so these 800 "international" points work on the Japanese marketplace? I looked up japanese points on ebay and those prices were just exorbitant.

Also, I don't see any listings there for international points. Do they go up often?

Watched "The Cave" video on the dashboard last night. I'm really looking forward to this. Can't believe I passed this booth right on by at PAX this year.


I honestly wasn't wowed by it at PAX, and I had previously been looking forward to it. I'll definitely still check it out, but the platforming was a bit sluggish, that my main issue.

Someone posted earlier in the thread he's going to post the deals and the coming soon information starting again next week.

EDIT: Found it

Well, if I was a betting man, I would have lost money. I was almost sure that Major Nelson would have had the "Coming Soon" post up today. Anyway, he just tweeted he'll have one up for next week.

* = It's possible to find the "Borderlands: Game of the Year" edition for less than $30 new (and much less if used). If you prefer to have your DLC installed from a 2nd disc that can be installed to multiple Xbox's without worry of being signed into Xbox Live, you might look for this version instead.

Hey, does this mean I could share this disc with a friend and we'd both be able to play the dlc together?

Yes, because the DLC simply downloads off the disc to your HD, just like if you were buying the digital version.

Does the Mafia II DLC from the greatest hits version also install onto the hard drive or is it simply on the disc?

So is Pikmin Swarm worth the 160 MSP? I'll probably get it regardless, just didn't want it being one of those dead multiplayer-only games.

Wait they have a GOTY version that an install disc? My Borderlands GOTY had a sheet of paper with the DLC in download codes, did they change it?

Yeah, they did a second run of GOTYs with an install disc.

IMO, if the demo seemed even a tiny bit interesting, it's worth 160 points. The main issue to me is that it is not that long but for freaking $2, it's just about the best value on XBLA. Really a unique concept that's very well done.

Here you go: http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1423.l2649

$11! The auction doesn't say international, but it's been tested and works with Japanese and multiple European country accounts.

I'm interested in it, but not worth jumping through the hoops to get it at that price. It'll hit 400 here eventually.

I played Black Knight Sword for about an hour and despite the interesting visuals and setting, I found the gameplay to be incredibly clunky, difficult, and not fun. The menus are very slow and annoying too. The publisher totally failed to hype the game in any way, and now it seems justified.

Yep. That's what I did for my 360, and both of my brothers' 360s so we could all play together. Probably the best $20 I've ever spent.

Skulls of the Shogun comes out on 1/30. I'm actually looking forward to this game. Hoping it's priced at 800 msp, but wouldn't be shocked if it's 1200.

It's gonna be 1200. It's pretty expensive all around. ($15 on Windows 8 and Surface as well)

Does that game hold up at all? When I think about it it seems like it came out a LONG time ago so I'm surprised if $15 would be below the used price

Edit: Looks like used is $10 which is still a bit higher than I expected

I'd get it at 400, but I'll just pick it up when it inevitably hits that price here. It came and went, but I can't pass up a Grasshopper title. Plus, I forgot the credentials to my JP login within minutes of creating the account. I should 200/200 Daggerdale while I still can, eh...

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

No, no it doesn't. I Played this a few months ago and you're better off playing a WWE title just because the gameplay is so sluggish. Plus if you're gunning for achievements, it takes a ridiculous long time just to get one character complete for 10 points or whatever.

Eh it's not really business smart. It's like when people ask when Xbox will answer the instant game collection, they won't. They don't have to. They were ahead to begin with which is why Sony came up with the idea, unless Sony gets much closer or pulls ahead Xbox won't worry about it.
