It should be noted that you have to download a registration gamer pic to qualify for the 300 msp shocktober reward. If you bought before downloading it......who knows what will happen.


Is there a separate one from the Xbox Rewards one? Because for the Xbox Rewards 300 points you do not.

I think it's for Xbox rewards. It's on the dashboard. Why don't you believe me?

I disagree entirely. Maybe it's not "True HD," maybe more could have been done with it, but it looks amazing compared to the SD versions.

It looks way better than the PS2 version and for $10 is a no-brainer.

I am with you 100% on this one. The problems with last gen systems was they weren't able to properly handle the beauty that was RE4, RE4HD takes it to another level , now the games incredible textures can be seen instead of looking blurry because of 480 limitations. The games art style is amazing and their is great attention to detail with everything in the world. I have already played this on GC and Wii, and now on 360. It is an incredible game and is a great single player experience , that said for $10 as Kevin from the Office says everytime after biting into a candy bar " ohhhh Yeahhhhh!":drool:

Weird Bioshock 2 is still listed as $19.99 but when you click on it the price shows as $9.99.

You don't need to download anything. The download on the dashboard is only to sign up for Xbox Rewards. If you were already a member then your were notified earlier in the month of this promotion before it was added to the dashboard and your purchases were counted.

Damit. I guess I will pick up RE4 after all. This will make the 3rd copy I buy. I have yet to play either my GameCube or Wii copies. This probably won't get played for a few years either. :(

Click on GamerCard below for my game list.

I'm rebuying RE4 as well but if you haven't played it on Wii yet you definitely should. One of the few games that I've actually enjoyed with the Wii controls.

Ok I just found the registration I think he is correct. It's really sneaky to do that. For me it was under games ->shocktober section -> from here look for the pumpking with the msp symbol that says spooky rewards ( it moves around ) I already bought my stuff so it better count.

Both Bioshock games are back to $9.99/800
I've seen B2 on Amazon go as low as $5 shipped so keep that into consideration. B1 however is worth the price of admission

While people are discussing RE4, I purchased it yesterday...and now I don't think I'll ever play it again for the simple fact that FOR ME, the controls is just an absolute abomination to gaming. It's horrendous.
At least I can say I have RE4 on my 360

I was just wondering since their FAQ on the offer states nothing of the sort. I would think that would be listed on their website as a requirement if needed. Plus I don't believe for any recent Rewards promotion that a gamer pic was needed to be eligible for said promotion. Possibly it may be needed for someone who is not already a registered Rewards member?

http://rewards.xbox.com/faq/#fmi

Who is eligible for the offer?
A. All Xbox LIVE Rewards members are eligible for the offer. Xbox LIVE Rewards members are only eligible to receive this Reward once during the month of October 2012.
What horror related Marketplace items qualify for this offer?
A. Horror related movies on Xbox Video, TV shows, Avatar items, Game Add-ons, Themes, Games on Demand, or Arcade Games. Eligible movie content can be found here.

Check the dashboard. It's listed as 300 microsoft points in one of the ad squares I think. I'm sure you'll see it. It showed up 3 times on mine.

I see it, hmmmm odd, I can't imagine that it would be required, d/l'ed gamerpic anyways....

Nowhere on their Rewards site does it state that it was needed so I imagine that they would still have to honor it unless specifically stated that the gamerpic is required. Thanks for the heads up.

So I just bit the bullet and bought Bioshock, Bioshock 2, Minerva's Den, The Protector Trials and the Sinclair Solutions pack. It was always a series I never paid attention to but always came highly recommended. I hope these games are really as good as people say. lol

If you get a chance to play it before the sale ends, could you comment on how the controls are transitioning from the Wii to the 360? I really like the Wii version due to the pointer controls and I'm on the fence about buying this version because of the traditional controls.

As for the Bioshock games, the fact that you can dual wield Plasmids and weapons in Bioshock 2 made it so much more enjoyable than the first game. I also wasn't a fan of that pipe minigame in 1, though the "stop the needle" minigame in 2 wasn't that much better. I'll also echo the comments on Minerva's Den, it was an enjoyable experience.

It's pretty much like playing the PS2 or Gamecube versions of RE4. Thankfully there is a control option to change shooting to LT & RT. You have to aim the reticule with the left analog stick, no way around that, unfortunately. It'd probably take me a half hour to readjust.

I really liked aiming with the Wiimote, it was the closest thing to having right analog aiming.

Thanks for the info. Guess I'll pass on this deal since it looks like a step down for me.
