I think they should have at least made it 50% off.


I want to say they've both been 50% off before, I have MM 9 & 10 and I can't believe I'd have paid 800 points apiece.

When sales of high quality appears, this thread just overflows with activity. This week will make me run through my remaining Microsoft Points from my estimation at this time. I am waiting until the change of the month to make my purchases, in hopes the February Xbox Rewards offer would stack with the bargains this week.

EA keeps making discount offers on the 360, even when they had another week of them not too long ago, and I just start considering purchases. I keep telling myself to avoid EA games if possible, because I just don't want to deal with getting to the game from my backlog on their schedule opposed to my own choice in my schedule due to EA server shutdowns. However, I'll grab the SSX content, because I enjoyed the previous editions of the game series (the backwards compatible SSX 3 finds its way into my 360 every now and then; I don't have Tricky for Xbox). I will probably pay the 400MSP for Shank 2, even though I have it on another platform (it was given with membership to their service) just to keep consistent with the first game in the series which I first got on the 360 (from a prior discount offer). Too bad now that I've given up on a 360 edition of Mass Effect 2 that's complete with all the DLC will be available, they stopped offering the DLC at significant discounts (50% or more).

Since the likeliness of a complete edition of Dragon Age 2 feels improbable, and I have waited for any form of discount on the DLC, I'll take what I can get at this time. Sure I'd prefer if they were all at 50% or more of a discount, but I am not sure if I'd see them offered again. Did the signature edition of Dragon Age 2 come with anything not included in The Exiled Prince (and all the preorder formerly exclusive stuff they gave out for free this past holiday season)?

Similarly, it seems Capcom gives no love to the 360, maybe those prices are just reflective of Microsoft not taking their cut or something (just speculating). I didn't choose to wait for a discount for Megaman 9 on release; as it stands, had I waited for a discount on the 360, I would need to be a gold member to save 200MSP after a bit over 4 years, but I probably would have broken and taken what I could get, so I understand if others feel the same way. I did double dip on another platform the game was available for because it was given to those who paid for their service, but it is so enjoyable to me that I wouldn't mind playing it again, besides, I find 9 much better than 10.

The same trend of minor discounts continues with Capcom's offering of characters and costumes for Street Fighter X Tekken. Again, I'd begrudgingly make the purchase because of the pittance of a discount, but I still intend on getting the game for the competing platform for its product differentiation, and hope there will be a proper bundle discount on the added content (I know, on-disc). This bothers me a bit, because I have been waiting on discounts for costumes for other Capcom fighters which I have chosen the 360 platform for, such as Street Fighter 4 (the costumes transfer over to the later edition), Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition, and Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. The cost of the bundles (I want them all) are still priced too high for me to make a purchase, and if Capcom is only at best willing to place a 25% discount on the combined 5480MSP of the bundles of content (my horrid math says the price would be around 4110MSP), despite my desire for the content, I will have to live without them at that price. It is the same issue I have with all the Dead or Alive 5 and Otomedius Excellent, although I want the DLC, all of it, but I just cannot commit that much Microsoft Points to the game, in part because I see it inflating the amount I will spend towards the game (which I don't mind for games I love, but eventually there is a limit to how much I am willing to spend). I guess at best this tempers my expectations when/if the additional costumes for the other Capcom fighters get a discount.



Almost makes me wanna save this quote since it's so fucking hilarious


It was for the few which may know from an old Dreamcast game trailer, Illbleed. Which I found amusing at the time, enough to give the game a try (wasn't good in its day, but I can appreciate it for being quirky different). Without that trailer, I probably would have not paid any attention to the game back then.



Damn, all these arcade games on sale and I have all of them. I guess I should be glad, my HD is down to it's last 10 Gigs of free space.


I'm there with you at just under 10GBs of space left on a 250GB. That's already with me getting rid of all the stuff I felt were expendable. I guess the next set of things to be culled for deletion are all the indie titles I wanted to get to try but only few ever got so far (though I did buy a few, those stay). Even if I remove those, I think I only gain back about 5GBs. Pretty soon, my 360 will just have a whole bunch of USB sticks pointing out of it. Sure I can delete some games/DLC, but I actually do revisit quite a few games and I like to stay nimble/ready for some game sessions with friends. I rarely ever 100% anything (last one was Xbox Live Labs which has been removed from my hard drive). It would be easier to rectify had Microsoft allowed the primary storage option (main hard disk) capacity to adjust with the times (I think the largest allowed is 320GBs). I do value some convenience, just having everything there without me swapping hard drives. I wonder how people who play games as I and choose to buy from the Xbox music and video marketplaces manage, since the gaming portion already eats up more than what I have.



Slightly annoyed that the Scott Pilgrim online pack still costs money, but $2 is still much better than $5. Plus it's nice to see it finally has a release date.


I am still doing the happy dance. Will make the purchase, twice (both platforms). It's been over a year or so that I've last played the game, this DLC should bring renewed interest. I look forward to playing this alongside others.



So Skulls of the Shogun is coming out tomorrow. Don't know if this was discussed before, but is anyone else bummed that every version of it will have a discount at launch except Xbox? Kind of turning me off from a definite day one purchase.


I have come to grips with the Xbox being the premium platform for games, and the prices are reflective of that premium experience. Just look at the dashboard, years of Microsoft experience and a world class team of designers made it what it is today. I am sure the extra money for the Xbox version covers the cost of the resolution-independent vector graphics to be in high definition.



Any of you sci-fi or fantasy fans have a means of predicting the future?


Magic 8-ball.



Anyway, I typed enough for now, gotta save some for next time =P. Keep it civil everyone, I'll join the rest of you guys buying in a couple days. ^^

According to XBLDB, this is the 4th time Mega Man 10's been on sale. The other 3 times were for 400 points, the last time was back in April 2011.

This is the first time Mega Man 9 has been on sale.

I bought MM9 on day 1 and MM10 the first time it went on sale. I've played a bit of MM9, but haven't unlocked any achievements.

I was about to ask that myself. GoDs never need codes for online play and such. He must be thinking of things like season passes which are not included with physical copies ether.

This guy seems to be trolling and that first post seemed to be only to stir up hate on XBL and praise and then defend PS+. We really don't need that. That quote added nothing to the thread either. This is my first block in a long time.

@Crono-00 The Dragon Age II LE also had The Black Emporium DLC which added another shop to the game and I think some exclusive items. It's been years so I might be a little off but I do remember that and the Exiled Prince content. One of those may have been a pre-order bonus though.

I forgot the KoA DLC was on sale. I still don't have the game and last time the DLC was on sale I convinced myself I wouldn't get the game but now I kind of want it. I'll shop around to see if the disc can be obtained for cheap. I know BestBuy had it for $10 with GCU but that was the month before I subscribed.

Seriously. There's been a lot of hate going around recently. I haven't been able to figure out the reason, but it dampens what is probably one of my favorite places in all the web.

MM9 has definitely never been on sale before. Perhaps you picked it up during an XBL "spend x amount and get y amount back" deal.

There's also some exclusive side shop that also contains a mirror to change your appearance. I think the Mabari Hound was also exclusive to that too.

So it's safe to say that I a complete edition of DA2 won't be happening and I should pick up the DLC?

There's doubt that a complete edition for DA2 will happen.

A KoA complete will never happen.

Like Mass Effect 2, right?:roll:

But maybe can happen if the third is out this generation.

After all it took 3 years to Bioshock 2 get his complete edition.

So anything can happen ... or nothing. LOL

Edit: Seeing EA revenue for DLC I begin to doubt we will see another complete edition from them.

I just got kind of a weird acceptance into the Battleblock Theater beta. Says I can invite up to 2 friends to also join in with me in the beta. My guess is that this is just to try and increase the amount of people they get in the beta, since registrations for it are still open. Anyone else get something like this?

I'm going to guess so as well. I Checked last year's February deal just to be sure it wasn't dated, but last February was 5% back on purchases. So I'm going to say that movie offer is correct. In short...time to partake in the EA sale.

I'm hoping that was a typo for your sake, but doubt it lol 3 digit backlog?! Holy smokes! I keep mine around 6-7 and freak out when it hits 10...I can't imagine having a backlog that huge.

Anyways, thanks for the heads up on the FEB offer. I've burned some BB Rewards certs for some cheap MSP and I'm ready for some DA2/KoA DLC, so I can buy now without caring about what FEBs offer will be.

Way easy to do that. We live in an age where there's more good media than time to watch/play/read it all. Add a job and a family and you have no time for most of it.
