It was on sale I think around September 25-October 1.


Well that explain it, I was in the middle of moving at that time. Maybe it will comeback when EA has a big publisher's sale, I hope.

...I check this thread every week and didn't see Crysis on sale, I must of skipped over it since I don't bother looking at the GoD section of the OP. Damn it!


As good as the OP is kept by either reddjoey or the wikiers, you should always check the last few pages I find. When something good is on sale folks are usually talking about it!

After how many of the sales over the past few days have been repeats? I really wouldn't say only chance. GoD or not, when Microsoft does a sale, you're usually going to see it again....and again.....and again.

*cue this week being GTA DLC yet again as was leaked*


The DLC repeats aren't necessarily good indicators of GoD sale trends. As I said GoD sales are much harder to predict. Repeat GoD sales are much less common and are typically further apart on the calendar than other content sale repeats. So it is definitely possible to see it on sale again but who knows when.

Now that I'm thinking about it, wasn't Crysis on sale for $15 only a few weeks before the $10 one? Could mean it'll go on sale again at either price point or it won't again for a while since its already been on sale twice recently.

When you go to the deal of the week box on the dashboard there is a picture of GTA IV. However, when you select it, it brings up deals for Puzzle Quest 1/2, Magic: The Gathering/2012, Puzzle Quest, Settlers of Catan and everyone's favorite Carcassone. They still show full price too.

Must be a glitch/mistake, because these were just recently the deal of the week IIRC.

Grabbed Space Channel 5 right before it went back up in price, since I have an abundance of points now thanks to Target :D

Yep, I already see GTA IV for $9.99, and the "Lost & Damned" DLC for 400pts ... but "Gay Tony" DLC is still 1600pts.

The Yu-Gi-Oh game on the xbox marketplace is pretty fun and addicting,well at least it was for me and my friends we would play the tag duels for hours.I believe the game got delisted and brought back like a week ago.


I second this, it's amazing how a crappy Yu-Gi-Oh game can be more fun than all Magic games just by the simple fact of leave you edit your own deck.:applause:

But still certainly Magic 2013 is amazing for those 400 MSP and that Yu-Gi-Oh game will return in a few weeks but will cost 800 MSP.

I'm really glad to see a return of a former delisted game. I just wish the same for other delisted games like Outrun :( and Marble Blast :( and kung fu strike and the list goes on...

Finally, I had to wait for ages to see a Pac Man C.E. DX discount!!!
Same for Omega Five, Strania and so on...

No, they are two different versions. At least in my case, I had to delete my installed version of a game before downloading the GoD one.

I guess you saw different XBLA sales last week than most of us? While they weren't giving anything away for 90% off, the number of games on sale (across all the simultaneous sales) included several titles that hadn't been on sale before and was totally unparalleled for an XBLA sale.

I swear, if I Am Alive goes on sale for less than 800 points, I'm going to be upset. We just had a deal a few weeks ago.

No if you read correctly the BF and CM deals were crap (expect for Cold Steam). The SVC collections for 400 MSP and I guess Spelunky were the only highlights from the week long sale. I wanted to see more games for 400 or less. Last year BG&E for 240 MSP ($3) was one of my best BF/CM pickups and there was nothing close to that level this year.

Picked up two of the BF deals last minute. Got the Sega Monster World Collection. Never played any of the games, but looked quite unique for genesis games. Played some and I am glad I spent the points.

Also picked up southpark. Seemed like a simple game, but several of my friends bought it, so i think it will make for good 4 player co op. The tower defense game was a blast, especially for a 4 player couch game.

Hmm since the Deadliest Warrior Games aren't available in this country I hope for some substitution deals like Half Minute Hero the last time the Dead Rising Games were on sale...

If you dig racing games, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is not only an awesome game, it has Vyse and a wonderful Skies track. SEGA could certainly be warming us up for a re-release. After all, they're buying into digital releases in a big way. If only Square-Enix would do the same on consoles and not just smartphones!


I hope you're right. It would be fantastic if it's a sequel/prequel instead of a port though. Don't get me wrong, I would still LOVE an HD remake of the game and would definitely pick it up on day one. But since I already own copies of the DC and the GC games I am itching for some new adventures.
I'll most likely pick up a copy of the new racing game when it goes on sale. I am still about half way done with the first one and it's buried deep in my "on-hold" pile at the moment.

I've been meaning to ask this for a while and I guess this is my last chance before the game goes back up to full price.
I have Magic 2012 in my backlog. Is there a point to picking up 2013 if I'm not a hardcore Magic player? I know 2013 is missing some features from 2012, but bear in mind I am a casual player. I normally don't dig too far beneath the surface and don't care much about extra modes and customization that gives the game "depth".

I am really surprised the Omega DLC (Mass Effect 3) is 1200 points. You are talking about a game released 8 months ago that you can get for almost the same cost now + the DLC does not allow you to carry anything back with you as far as characters and you cannot return to Omega once you complete it. I am even going to cringe having to pay 600 for this eventually.

That's too bad, def. gonna pass and wait for a good sale. I always thought side kick characters in ME 3 were kinda boring, wish they were more alien and at least more interesting outfits. ME2 had the best side characters I think.

You have horrible taste, then again you did actually buy stuff for the PS3 like it's not dead so..........

Yup. I'm waiting on my copy to be delivered this week.

I'm thinking I'll pick up Bully if it's still 1200 MSP. Has it ever been 800 MSP or should I just bite? I bit on Crysis at 1200 thinking it wouldn't drop and then it hit 800 within a month or two.

Any opinions on Burnout Crash? What Kinect functionality is there? I remember playing the trial and thinking it was okay but then deleting it.

Hmmm I own the first Deadliest Warrior game and might pickup the DLC but pass on the sequel + DLC.

After buying the ME3 Leviathan DLC on sale I'll wait for Omega to hopefully be discounted in the next year. Microsoft should do a Bioware sale. I think there's still a Dragon Age 2 DLC that hasn't been discounted that I've been waiting for.

Hopefully the upcoming Ubisoft sale brings something new like the ACIII Season Pass on sale already. I can dream! Even though this will piss someone off I hope I Am Alive is 600 MSP. Otherwise some newer DLC sales would be cool.
