correct. this is a deal only available through the scratch and match section in the sales & specials app on your xbox console. technically, it is not a deal of the week sale, which is why you do not see it on xbox.com
kinda pissed I can't get the Limbo discount because I don't have access to Xbox Live right now, is there no way to get that discount on xbox.com?
You have until Tuesday morning (2/19) around 2am PST to get to a functioning Xbox 360. You've still got lots of time to make arrangements. Remember that any game you purchase has 2 licenses ... 1 for the XBL account (as long as it's online), and 1 for the 360 it's originally purchased upon (for offline use). Even if you're logged into a friend's or family member's 360, you'll still be able to play "Limbo" while your gamertag is online. Every 4 months or so, you can also reset all purchased content to a new physical 360 (go to http://www.xbox.com/drm for details), so you'll eventually have offline access to the game as well, even if you don't purchase on your own 360.
edit: can anyone tell me if limbo has been cheaper in the past? i used to own the triple pack and sold it just a few days ago. i looked on xbldb.com but i have a hard time interpreting the info. wasn't it super cheap during a holiday sale?
and what is this i read about a skyrim abit and switch? dragonborn is the only dlc i need to buy and i was planning on doing it next week
All done in the OP ... grabbed a snapshot of the Dashboard's "price drops", so I separated the "announced" vs. "unannounced" so newbie visitors can understand how we make these determinations.
Yes, Limbo's been cheaper quite a few times, and I've ensured all 3 "scratch" deals have their xbldb, Metacritic, and Quick Look links intact.
Give the "Skyrim" / "Oblivion" sales a chance to post ... remember there's countless licensing agreements to wrangle whenever a sale occurs, and a Skyrim sale may very well be North America only, or some finite number of countries. As we always say here ... YMMV.
