People need to keep their expectations in check. Looking forward to the epic tears when the prices are just as bad as usual. Prove me wrong M$!

Wow so they decided to save a year's worth of sales for the last 2 weeks of 2012. I guess it's finally time to use all of those Bing points that have been collecting dust.

What are the guesses on walking dead episode prices? 300? Dare I hope for 200?! Whats a typical price for a discounted 400 point game?

Thanks for the heads up! I was going to buy Hydro Thunder Hurricane, but I can wait till Christmas to get it. Does anyone know if these offers will be posted on the Sales and Specials Xbox app? It's because I check that more regularly more than CAG.

In any case, with the awesome Black Friday sale the Microsoft Store had and this Xbox Live Marketplace sale, I'm glad to be going back to green after my PS3 YLOD.

Can anyone point me to a good place for me to trade my Skyrim download voucher for a 1600 point card? I really want to get rid of it.
Wii U!?! I don't think you could possibly give a game console a worse name!!!

Definitely picking up Fez. If Dust and Mark of the Ninja are half off, I'll get both for 1200 points.

Nice, was hoping for a sale on Dawnguard and Hearthfire!


I was hoping for a sale on the Forza Horizon Season Pass. That would give me an excuse to keep my copy of Forza Horizon instead of selling it at a $25.00 profit.

People need to keep their expectations in check. Looking forward to the epic tears when the prices are just as bad as usual. Prove me wrong M$!


I think the Microsoft Store online Black Friday sale showed they have the capacity to be generous. Noting that, I have faith that the LIVE game prices will at least be somewhat decent.

Did the OP ever give a source? I'm wondering if he's just trolling hard - seems odd to have The Walking Dead on sale so fast after it came out when it's been received so well and is on many peoples GOTY lists...

If it's true, there's PLENTY in that list I'll be jumping on.

Microsoft had some pages on xbox.com that categorized several groups of games, games that are listed in the OP. The prices that were displayed reflected the current prices. Those pages were quickly taken down shortly after they were discovered.

I might need to buy a point card or two in the next couple of weeks.

Still wondering if I should keep the copy of The Walking Dead I ordered Tuesday. It will definitely be cheaper now digitally, and the problems on the disc version are worrying, but then it really seems like Telltale and/or retailers were wholly unprepared for the demand of the game.

AND PLEASE CAN DEATHSPANK'S SEQUEL BE INCLUDED. I've been waiting for it to be discounted ever since I completed the original a long while ago.

what type of problems on the disc version are you talking about?

It was discussed two pages ago...

http://www.telltaleg...isplay.php?f=83

And you're right, you can't install it to the HDD.

Cliff's Notes for the link: Stuttering and freezing problems that are so bad that people can't complete the QTEs. Also, some people are having problems with episodes reverting back to episode 1 in the middle of gameplay.

Just a few things I'm wondering:

How official is this list?

Prices, can we expect to learn them ahead of time, to plan our purchases?

There's no way I won't hit the 2000 points for the reward this month. Already spent 1600 points on Dragonborn. I may jump on a couple of the arcade titles, if the discount is steep enough. Here's hoping they throw down a 75% off deal on at least a few of the older games. Been holding out on Rock of Ages.

No way it'll be half price, but probably 240 ($3) or 320 ($4) each.

Regardless of what it turns out to be, with the first episode free and the remaining ones discounted, this is easily one of the best deals you'll ever see on TWD - at least until the on-disc version shows up in the bargain bin, and that won't be for a long time.

I'm not 100% convinced that 2-5 will be on sale. Part of me thinks that they hope 1 being free will be enough of an impetus for people to buy the rest of them. Not sure though, but definitely seems like a possibility in my mind.

I agree and will be shocked if they discount 2-5. It makes more since they will give 1 away for free knowing that it will spike sells for the others over the coming months.

I wouldn't expect to see a sale on all of them until season 2 is already out...

aso, tony hawk pro skater HD.. without split screen multiplayer and no HORSE game mode, is basically 100% useless to me. I bought it, and regret it. YEs i could have read up on it, but when a series has been 2 players since the first game in the series... you kind of expect it to be there for an HD remake.

But yea if some of these go 50% ill be in for:
- Peggle nights (if it works with the disc version of peggle that came with plants vs zombies)
- Hell YEAH
- Deadlight
