If you can find it at Sears, it should be clearanced for like $4.
I bought it from there and that's how cheap it was. For that price, it was definitely worth it.

I bought it about a year ago for around $15 ... definitely worth it. Like the others said, you should be able to find it for much less now.

I just wish they'd release another version of Unplugged ...

I hate that this package ever existed.
Put every one of these games on my list, and they're some of the hardest arcade games to 100%.

Not to mention I had to go spend $25 more to buy the ones that are trials so I could get 200.

Still haven't gotten 200 in Bejeweled 2, Geometry Wars or Texas Hold 'em, and this brings my percentage down from 99.75% to like 98.5% which is actually quite a big deal when you're that close to 100%.

That is really cheap! Better than buying the games off the marketplace for that price...

I think the disc that comes with the 360 Arcade bundle is a better value. I have both and paid about the same for both of them (paid $10 for unplugged, and about $9 for the other disc used at Gamestop), but I'd go with that one personally. That said, $10 isn't bad for the Unplugged disc if you even like a couple of the games.

Unplugged is cool if you don't already have the games. I personally love Wik, Geometry Wars, and Bejewled so for me it was a no brainer. Plus if you get it used there is always the chance the live code will still work (although it says it expired in 07)

I have never heard of it. What games come on it?

05-06-2008, 06:00 PM
well i got it for free and some of the games are pretty sweet like gemometry wars and wik fable of souls...and it saves u a ton of money if u want to buy them with microsoft points..=)

05-06-2008, 06:04 PM
I would say that it is, but some of them you have to pay the MS points for anyway, but it is a good buy.

It's a good deal if you can find it clearance-priced. Although for me, I prolly still won't ever get it. One of the biggest selling points about XBLA games is that they can be played off your harddrive. You can play any amount of them, at any time, in an instant. Having to put in a disc every time I wanna play a couple rounds of Geometry Wars, not worth it.

Arcade version is a waste of money, no matter what price, but unless you only play arcade games, it's fine.

Huh? Are you talking about the Arcade disc you can buy used at Gamestop like the rest of us or are you talking about the actual console?
