I would totally pick up Shadow Complex if it ever hit that 560 price point again. I've heard nothing but universal praise for it, but 1200 is way to steep for such an old title. I had just gotten an Xbox a few months after that sale, so to say I'd like to see a sale of that sort would be an understatement.


Its one of the best games i have ever payed. Yes i bought it on sale but its definitely worth full price.

they did better than a sale, they gave you 5 games with 2 of them you chose for free


He's saying what did Xbox do to capitalize on the PSN downtime?

Do you think they needed to do anything except stay up and running to capitalize on that?

Ditto. Shadow Complex is definitely worth 1200.

Summer of Arcade (just talked about in an E3 stream)

Hybrid
Deadlight
Wreckateer
Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD
Dust

I was half paying attention and they definitely were talking about Wreckateer and Tony Hawk. I saw that full list in a comment so maybe not 100% true. confirmed by more sources

I Think he was implying a sale to coincide with E3.

Deadlight and Dust: Elystian Tale (whatever) both look really awesome! Other 3 are kind of yawners to me.

Wow, no Kinect love? I prefer to play my games via a traditional controller, but I was hoping to see something creative that makes me want to play with the Kinect. MS fails again.

There were some. One was a gameplay demo where they did little to explain or set it up and the other was just a trailer that uses Kinect, but it didn't say how. Besides that we got that Crimson Dragoon game coming out still as well.

Link to Major Nelson's Blog about all the new features plus decriptions for the Summer of Arcade games in case you want to read in more depth.

An interesting feature is Xbox Live Tournament...why no talk about THAT in the E3 conference.

By "no Kinect love" do you mean not enough Kinect or you just don't like the Kinect title they put in SoA?

Yep, i'll buy these two as well. Shame Spelunky isn't on that list. :(

How was the Hybrid beta? Didn't like the look of this game from videos...

The Hybrid beta was...awful IMO. And considering it's an online game, it probably won't have a long shelf life.
Video game burnout looking to buy. Check my thread!

The Hybrid beta didn't do anything for me. I'm not a shooter fan hardly at all, and I'm definitely not an MP shooter fan. I guess it has a couple interesting ideas, but I don't see it being a long term success.

To be honest, I did not know Wreckateer was a Kinect game when I made my post, so I was shocked at the lack of Kinect titles. Now that I know that it is, I am disappointed that this is the Kinect title they're including in SOA. Seems like a crappy way of using Kinect.

Agreed. As someone who has been enjoying games where you wreck stuff with physics before Angry Birds was a thing I'd much rather play it with a controller. I really don't understand how motion control could make that game better.

I think Wreckateer looked kind of cool, but it definitely doesn't do anything new.

MS's E3 presentation still had too much Kinect for me personally. I'd love to pick up a Kinect and check it out, but it's still priced about 3x higher than I'm willing to go.

Yeah Hybrid was a real dumb choice for SoA. Wreckateer looks like a crappy version of Boom Blox for the Wii, and while Tony Hawk looks ok, remakes should not be a part of SoA.

Bad form, m$. What a way to start the beginning of the end of the promotion. If there is a SoA next year, I'll guarantee it'll be the last.
