Yup, nothing yet. They've kind of been dropping the ball on DotW lately, in my opinion. First Splinter Cell is announced as DotW Wednesday but doesn't drop in price til Friday, then NFS goes back up in price 2 days earlier than normal, and now this delay.

this is poop.

in other news, sally's spa is fun, the scrolling is not bad like I thought it would be, plays well, fun. If you like salon, this is same with some added gameplay such as selling products. Decent. The achievements are going to be a bit of a grind having to perfect every level, complete on normal and hard, and then survival based achievements.

I almost wonder if they might have discontinued the DOTW. The DOTW always had a mention on the WP7 page on Xbox.com. That has since been removed and makes no mention of the DOTW. I really hope that Microsoft hasn't abandoned it.

I still have hope since they haven't updated the marketplace via phone yet. I know you can get Sally's Spa via link but I still don't see it on my phone so who knows... :roll:

Anyone having problems with Sally's Spa? Just bought it last night and only 1 achievement shows up on my gamercard, even though in the game it shows I unlocked 2 achievements. Leaderboards aren't working either.

There hasn't been a Games for Windows DOTW for about a month now either, although those were usually terrible anyways.

Is sonic episode 1 usually $5? That's what it is now so I'm wondering if that's it.

I can't imagine that they would, but maybe it's just not worth the hassle to them?

If we go a week or 2 without a DotW maybe we can get EastX to do some digging on it. LOL

havent had that problem. Unlocked like 4 or 5 achievements so far. you may need to uninstall and redownload. maybe try unlocking another achievement first.

Sometimes you need to play the game again while connected to Wi-Fi, and then exit and refresh your Achievement list on the phone. That seems to help.

Ya I don't know how to interpret that answer either. WPSupport probably doesn't have access to that kind of info tho (whether or not there will be a DotW this week).

EDIT:

They don't know.

I hit up three different people at Microsoft about the DOTW, so fingers crossed they actually respond.

Has anyone had anymore info yet? The only time I buy games on WP7 is from DOTW! They can't stop it! Lol. It might of had something to do with the fact that they are upgrading the marketplace at the moment and its causing alot of delays. Everyone should buy ilomilo though. That game is awesome!

Sorry for the bump if it gets anyone's expectations up, but this is really flippin' lame that there is no DotW. I thought they would come through and were just behind, but it doesn't look like it at this point. Super lame MS.

Wasn't there a week where there wasn't a DotW at all? I think MS just effed up and didn't have a game lined up for a discount or some kind of publisher issue complicated things. Or *GULP*......Deal of the Week for Windows Phones have been canceled? Kinda like Games for Windows Live? No more weekly deals there / end speculation

Yeah, I do not recall a missing week before. I would think we would get an announcement of sorts if cancelled, right? But, it seems strange to cancel it and I would lean to they did not have something in place.

btw-I too had a achievement issue with sally's spa, first two unlocked but did not unlock on my gamertag. achievements after the first two show however. Guess I'll replay once I beat it to get it to unlock

There was a restructure of the marketplace this week so I'll give it some time.

Other people have been reporting achievement issues as well so I'll wait until they fix that bug before playing WP games again.

good to hear it may just be the restructure. Is the achievement issues just sally or others are reported?

Other games too which is leading people to believe that WP servers are having issues. There is a whole thread on x360a about it.

Looking into the Achievement problem. Everyone who's experienced those issues, please go post in the XB3A thread as the folks at MS will be reading it.
