Recent Updates

  • 9/16 - Deals with Gold, Halo Reach GwG, Spotlight BF4 Engineer Kit
  • 9/9 - Deals with Gold, Misc Markdowns, Cross Buy / Upgrade (Destiny / Minecraft)
  • 9/3 - New thread, Family Guy price adjustment, Misc Markdowns
  • 9/2 - Deals with Gold, Spotlight Activision, Misc Markdowns
  • 8/28 - Sept GwG announced, Misc Markdown

This thread will maintain a list of all current and upcoming sales and markdowns on the Xbox Live Marketplace / Xbox Games Store for the USA.  YMMV in other regions.  If non-US sales are listed, they will be marked with their applicable region(s).

 

Please note:

  • You cannot currently buy any Xbox 360 content on xbox.com using your account balance, you can only use an active credit card or PayPal. To use your balance, you must make purchases on your console.  Unfortunately, even "purchasing" free content through the web site like trials requires an alternative method of payment tied to your account, though adding an empty MasterCard / Visa gift card that is registered for online purchases will work.  Xbox One games can be purchased on the web site with your account balance, but DLC cannot.
  • Some sales are intended for Gold subscribers only, as noted within each section.  This requires being a paid subscriber or within a console-activated "1 month complimentary Gold trial" account.  Neither 48 hour trials, 14 day trials nor free weekends qualify.
  • All known sales and information on sales should make their way into the OP. Major Nelson usually updates his blog with new sales information every other Tuesday.
  • ALL OFFERS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE! No information within this thread can or should be construed as accurate (or still valid), therefore ...
  • Always verify Xbox Live Marketplace prices before your purchase!
  • Spend wisely, have fun, and enjoy!

Asked in the old thread and I'm wondering the same as I didn't see anything on Major Nelson's blog...

 

New 360 update...what's involved?  Anyone heard?

Don't see any patch notes yet, it must be a minty fresh patch. Similar to this thread...

Thanks for all the work in recent months, Bloom. You wear the pride of Joey and Tyler and you wear it well.

Is Lococycle that bad? I'm tempted for some reason. I guess new consoles give me about a year where I am interested in everything that come out for it. 13 GB, though? Yikes.

This is my biggest gripe about console game patches, mostly, no damn notes.

Anyone see Major post that you get a free game with a purchase of any Xbox One system? It says select retailers. So far I have only seen it in the KMart and Target Ad. I was hoping for it to be in the GS ad, since I just purchased one there this past week.

The combat is more repetitive than bad and not very conducive to the review process. The big file size is mainly due to tons of "great" HD FMV cutscenes and VO during combat. $6 is an appropriate price for what is.

PlayXBLA mentioned that Microsoft Stores will offer a $50 Xbox gift card with an XB1 console purchase from 9/5 to 9/15 to celebrate Minecraft's release.  Major's post says the free game cannot be combined with other offers, so I guess we'll have to wait for the 7th to see if they'll stack at MS Stores, if they'll be a participating retailer or that's just an attempt at a (near) equivalent offer.

 

Yes, good job. I think the previous thread was the longest running XBL Deals thread (9 mo.)

That's a side effect of the site update last year allowing for more posts in a topic without causing problems (mods would generally contact an OP about starting a new topic once it hit 10k posts), with a touch of laziness on my part.  There still might be some issues, though.  I don't remember when I stopped getting notifications for new posts in the old topic, but some other people also had the problem.  Hopefully a new topic fixes that.
