Convinced a mate to buy it so we can have a laugh and I had a couple guys lining up to boost with me but I've lost their tags so I'll post on the trading thread whenever I get on multiplayer, see if they spot me.

I bought it for 19.99$ at BlockBuster without the case. (Just like a black blank case.)

Go to EB the next day, 9.99$ with the case!!! FUCK You BlockBuster.

I then rented UFC, kept it for 29 days longer than allowed and since it's 1$/day late fees, I will never rent again!

Collecting games FTW!

But, on topic: DLC should be free. Gimme 250!!

My brother and i bought the dlc about 2-3 weeks ago and it was still 1200, We bought it knowing full well we were only gonna have each other to play because it seems like nobody else in the world plays stranglehold mp but we needed the mp achievements, got all 1250g so i guess it was worth it.

No one plays the game much anymore other than for achievements so achievement hunters will buy it regardless of price so i cant see them bringing it down unless its on DOTW .

I think its unlikely for the DLC to ever drop as Midway no longer exist, its surprising the servers are still running. I justify the 1200 by saying if I was going to buy an arcade game for that much I'd only get 200 gs so its an easy 250

The price isn't coming down, why would it? Most of the posts I read on here state that the game was purchased for under ten dollars used. They don't see any money from that sale. The fact is, people are still paying money for the DLC because they need that 100%, so as long as there is money to be made, why would they lower it?
A wise man once said nothing.

I consider this game as completed for me with 1000GS. Hell no, I won't pay 1200 points for a couple of maps on a dead MP just for 250GS

Thumbs down I'll never ever complete this game.

i'd rather give the money to a charity than spend it on dlc with 250gs for a game with a great actor in it. 1200msp= £10.

rip off prices.

I have read most if not all of the posts about the cost of the DLC for this game and i must agree that it is way over priced @ 1200 msp=£10/$15 for 250gs. the game is ok but old, chow yun fat is a good actor, Jon woo is a good director/writer and that's it... as far as completing this game myself i keep checking the price whenever i get msp crossing my fingers...
but now this game is over 4 years old and no price drop i have decided to delete my game save and push the achievement blade way down my games list knowing i won't get it completed unless i win the lotto and have money to throw away(even then i'll hesitate).

Although one idea is for everyone who wants to get this game on they're completion list is to put in a petition to get the price down to an acceptable one. if this dosen't work then it'll be obviouse that they're thinking only about the money and not us gamers showing off this game on our completed games list.

The DLC for this still hasn't dropped? LOL.

Has this even ever been featured on the marketplace specials before as a discount?
100% completion for all games and achievements.

I bought this the other day. I didn't want to wait anymore and bit the bullet. Does anyone else want to boost it (if you can bring yourself to pay for it?)

If so, gamertag is Skaos3010. PM me on Xbox.

Resident Evil 6,Saints Row 2

If interested in boosting the above, send me a PM on Xbox Live.
