Note: the list at the bottom seems to be holding up for now.
Final update. Crappy MW content with links stolen from AlphaTwo00 from the same GAF thread.

MW1 - Variety Map Pack (400 - 50%off)
MW2 - Resurgence Pack (600 - 50%off)
MW2 - Stimulus Pack (600 - 50%off)

Gears of War 3 Season Pass 1800 points - http://marketplace.x...a6db0?cid=SLink
There's some other stuff too, but it's not worth it... and the individual DLC doesn't seem to be on sale yet.

I'm going to steal this from Wario64 on GAF because... well, laziness. Lots of good deals to be had though:

Those are some amazing deals. I can vouch for Afterburner Climax, Bastion, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet and Peggle (plus the DLC) being totally worth your time and money.

Still picked up Plants vs Zombies and Portal Still Alive. I loved both on PC (and PvZ on iTouch as well), and wouldn't mind playing through them again (now with Achievements!).

The steam version of Bastion has been on sale recently for $5 and may go even lower if it becomes a daily deal during the Xmas sale on now.

Portal and portal 2 combo are on sale for 7.50 today.

I'm so torn. Do I get Bastion now on XBLA or wait for a better deal on Steam? Grr...

Good thing for those recent point sales, Bastion, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and Bloodrayne on sale! Thats a pretty good meal of digital download gaming goodness.

According to Mr. Hryb this is the start of 12 days of deals, pretty awesome start:

Sweet, totally went in for Bastion and Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet.

When they first came out I knew I wanted both and after a bit of patience got them for this nice deal.

Makes it even better after the reduced M$ point sales. We'll see what the 11 days of deals have left to offer, I may have to top off my account ;)

Thanks! Picked up Bastion. I'll don't think I'll find it any lower for the time being, besides steam.

Fallout 3 DLC is not worth it. >.< The GOTY edition includes all DLC and is priced at $20, new, at EB. The DLC alone adds up to 2800 MSP, or $40.

New Vegas DLC adds up to 2080 MSP, or $26. New Vegas cost $20. So $46, which is $4 less than the Ultimate Edition (which isn't out until February).

Oh, while I'm at it, $22.50 for Oblivion is a rip off, the GOTY is $20 and includes DLC.
Lego Star Wars TCS is also overpriced at $22.50, it's only $20 in stores.

What's with Microsoft and trying to rip people of using Bethesda games? :S GamesOnDemand is broken, why is digital still more expensive than physical? >.<

Sorry that this post is so long, just one last thing: http://marketplace.x...n/dealoftheweek
400 MSP for Rock of Ages

Because Microsoft is dependent on Big Box retailers to move hardware and accessories for them. If they start undercutting retail prices they run the risk of alienating the retailers, which limits the ability to get the hardware to people directly.

Eventually video games will catch up with other media in the realm of digital distribution and that will be the primary method of distributing software on consoles, as it is on PC, but it'll likely be a bumpy road. Also, it might mean hardware prices go up so retailers can make the same markup as they do on Tv's and Pc's.

Opinions will differ, but I didn't think much of the F3 DLC was good enough to be worth paying for at any point. If you know a friend who owns the GOTY edition, ask to borrow the second disc.

I disagree, while it had a few glitches, it wasn't terrible. I enjoyed it.

When Big Box retailers have sales, consumers actually save money. This "sale" on F3 DLC isn't much of a sale. Honestly, I don't think any of the Big Box retailers are going to kick down Microsoft's door, enraged by a day/week long sale... Totally agree with that second bit though. The Vita is going to pave the way with the digital games (though I still much prefer owning physical copies).

Anyone play Deadliest Warrior: Legends?

Not sure if you noticed, but they never actually had a date for the 23rd's sales. So the list could still be true. It went 22 then 24 on the list.
