really tempted by the UN DLC, but I think I'm just gonna hold out for another $20 GOTY. I missed the Best Buy deal last week, but hoping for another one soon.

When have these sales been going live? Just curious because I'll be away from the house while these wrap up. Will have to use Xbox.com most likely.

I'd rather they discount a bunch of new 1200MSP games then a bunch of old 800MSP games I already own.

Also - "back in your day" = December 28th, 2012, as the Sonic sale did exactly what you're asking for.

Oh wait, I forgot I was posting on CAG, you probably wanted much, much more, didn't you?

haha, i thought it was a sarcastic comment, seeing as how XBLA sales have only been around a few years.... back in MY day, a SALE meant i could pick up a SNES game for less than $50....

I know I'll be in the minority on this, but Undead Nightmare was pretty big disappointment for me. I will say I felt RDR was fairly overrated in the first place, but it did keep my interest long enough to finish the game. I tend to like zombie themed games so I had high hopes for UN, but it was just so damn repetitive and felt like a chore to play it through the end. 90% of the game is just ride to location X, clear a Fuck ton of zombies, scour the location for ammo (btw, is it really necessary to have to search each individual body for 2-3 seconds just to recover a few bullets?) and then rinse and repeat. To make matters worse, after a set amount of time passes, the areas you clear will come under attack again and you will have to save them all over again. It really annoys me when games make you do repetitive shit to artificially extend the length of the game and I know that's a common trapping of open world games, but it just seemed particularly bad in UN. Maybe I'm just burned out on the genre.

How the F can "back in the day" be a date in the future?

I would like to see both the new and the older games be marked down more regularly.

I just picked up Bloodrayne: Betrayal and am really liking it so far. Fantastic deal for 600 points and I'm going to check out Renegade Ops next. I wonder if Shank will be part of the upcoming EA sale because this old school formula is exactly what I need right now.

i can't believe some of you haven't played red dead yet, how many games of the year awards does it have to win to peak peoples curiosity? it's been out since may 2010

undead nightmare is a steal at 400 points, heck it's a steal at it's original price of 800, the only dlc i thought was worth paying for since it's practically a new game totally unrelated to the original games plot, and it's longer and more fun than many $60 retail games



I haven't played it yet because I'm not that into the idea of a Western themed game and I am not a big fan of Rockstar's sandbox forumula. It being such a critically acclaimed game is the only reason why I will eventually check it out at some point but a year and a half really isn't that long to wait on a game.

You youngsters crack me up.
I remember shelling out $50 for Pac-Man for the Atari 2600 on release day.
Yes, it was crap. But, it was a huge upgrade from my Sears Pong.

.... then today IS a good day to stop sniffing glue, at that price point it's a must have. I got it as a gift and have loved getting them all on release day and not having to worry about finding the points each time

yea I'd definitely recommend the season pass at this price. am i kinda regretting buying it at full price? yeah, but thats only cus its on sale now... lol. though who knows, maybe it'll go on sale again for even cheaper, but i dont see that happening any time soon

you'd think they would've put the other gears avatar guns on sale too since they're taking them off the marketplace soon

Season passes... =_=

Let's just be thankful that they've actually released enough content to make it a deal. I'm just waiting for a company to screw over its consumers by selling a Season Pass that only ends up giving you two 800 MSP map packs.

<- is not a fan of prepaid gaming

Yeah the season pass is worth it at 1800. The first two packs together are 2000 outside the season pass so 200 points less and 2 more DLC packs on the way makes 1800 a good deal.

Don't forget that all gun-type Avatar Props will be delisted on January 1st because apparently the Xbox is a toy for children, so if you want to pay money to play manly virtual dressup then this could be your best... SHOT.

For tomorrow's sale (Call of Duty) which of the map packs for black ops are worth it?

Thanks for the compliment. However I dare say it was chopper command when I was very young that started this whole obsession...

GOW season pass not worth it full price, maybe worth biting now I'd say, I got full price to discover you have to GRIND just to get the New equip

Yeah 1800 will be at minimum 50% off the 4 DLC packs when price individually. The first 2 are 2000 and the 2nd two should be at least 800 each. 3600 total so a 50% discount is fine by me. Could it go to 1200? Sure but I am not taking that risk. I doubt we will see more than a 50% off sale on this stuff in the next year. The skins are still too much even at 1800 though.

Agreed. 1200 for the skins would be fine.

Even at 1200 for cosmetic skins that do nothing seems ridiculous.

5$ is just right for multiplayer gun skins.

I'm buying it right now. I wanted it for a while, but when I found out there was a chance it would go on sale for these deals, I figured I could wait a bit more.
I honestly never thought any of the season passes would ever go on sale.

So I am pumped to get it right now.
I'd like to get the weapon skins, but Fuck that. 1800 points is still too much for weapons skins. They should have been in the game to begin with, but I think if I HAD to pay something to get them...400 points would be do-able? Still too much, but I think I would get them all for that. The current price is dumb though and I can do without them.

Those skins are ON THE DISC! Even 400 MSP would only be parted with through gritted teeth...

You can unlock plenty of adequate skins as it is anyway.
