I am not sure how long this will run for, it just says:

Gears of War 3 On Demand
For Limited time get 50% off
Just $14.99.
Retail is 29.99 so it is 50%. You can get it on Amazon right now for $22.10 so at $14.99 its a good deal IMHO. If your willing to buy digital that is.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is also 50% off. $9.99 right now.


EDIT: Gears must be purchased through the dashboard on the Games tab, second slide in the main area. Star wars is in the sales and specials box on the top right in the first picture here.

Where to find it:

Sorry guys, yeah, its on the game tab, one of the main things in the bigger box. Second screen based on the circle indicators on the bottom of it.

If its $15 I'll buy it I'll keep looking but from what I saw on the old dashboard its 16% off I'll try the new dashboard.

On my gold account its 16% off on a silver its 50%.

side note - if you plan on playing online, i suggest you buy the map packs.

if you dont have them the game switches to user hosted games, and i felt it was unbearable any time i played like that

Dang, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 is only $9.99 right now.

You can find that on the games tab as well. Inside the sales and specials box on the top right.
You can see it in the pics I added in my OP.

Then its the first slide in the middle box.

Editing my OP to reflect both deals.

This is true i've been playing lately and if youre lucky enough to be in southwest usa, like lousiana on west lol. youre going to play vs endless waves of mexicans and south americans. Some of them lag really hardcore so you will want to play on the ranked dedicated servers.

Don't bother looking if you're in the dashboard beta. It doesn't show, just like standard ads.

Every single mode in Gears 3 is like that now, with or without the map packs.

That would be the problem then. Oh well, guess I saved $15.

The ad in the dashboard doesn't have the "Limited time" and "50% off" text for me.

Thinking about getting Star wars TFU 2, but I heard it wasn't that good. The first one was pretty cool imo, any thoughts on the game if any of you have played it?

I've heard it's only about 4-5 hours long and the story is much worse.

I never played the first TFU so I can't compare it. I played TFU2 and thought it was pretty good.

I usually try to buy discs but $14.99 is great, especially since I'd only need to buy 1 copy and still be able to co-op on 2 different 360s. I hope I have the deal.

Just wanted to share a f******d up story, I bought the GOW3 for the 50% off 14.99 price and talked my buddy into buying it also. Heres where things get really gay really fast, he bought 1400 points off of amazon and proceeds attempt to but the deal except on his console they want 20 bucks:drool:, after a while I talk him into buying 400 more points, which he does. Then after buying 400 more point the price raised again:hot:. dats som bullspit. So he called up microsoft who gave him 1000 points to make up the difference so he ended coming out ahead:applause:

I'm in the dashboard beta and Gears 3 shows as full price to me

too bad, I would have bought it for $15
