Meh, I think I'll pass on this weeks deal and save my money for another week.

Great for those who like Rock Band 3 and haven't picked up those DLC packs though.

Back to this shit then...

Suppose this week it's okay since it means I can more easily justify buying all of the Summer of Arcade titles when I'm not buying DotWs too.

Well, got my wish of more Rock Band tracks to go on sale. Too bad I own all these tracks Half off isnít so bad for others though. I believe the Bon Jovi pack is reduced from 1600 to 1200 points.

Microsoft should really do that promotion they did last year where there was 100+ Rock Band songs on sale. I believe it was called Liveapalooza or something like that. I think that would be a smart idea so MS isnít throwing out RB tracks as the Deal of the Week only and alienating the community. By the community, I mean the online, cheap ones. Like me

Hydrophobia was on sale at one point(earlier this year I think) for 400 points. Stacking was on sale for half off at 600 points the first week of July, exactly one month ago. Were you waiting for those to drop lower or did you just miss em?

Next weeks deals have also been announced by Major Nelson.

Its just 33% off Xbox Originals such as Fable, Black, Crash Bandicoot and Legend of Spyro, all for 800 points.

Another miss for me I think. I may have picked up the original Fable if it were 400 points though.

Some great old games there, but why do they expect people to pay 800 points for disc-less games when we can pick them up in second-hand shops for a couple of quid?

I've read multiple articles where Microsoft has stated that xbox originals are geared for more of the impulse buyer and for people that don't have accessto buy the physical disc.

Plus, MS doesn't want to piss off the retailers and have amazing deals(like Steam does). Either way, the only Xbox original/Game on Demand I've only bought it Halo Combat Evolved for 400 points. Anything more than 400 points I don't even consider nowadays. Well, mostly anything over 400 points.....

400 points is about right for original games I'd say. Even 800 points is pretty extortionate. Although saying that I think 600 points would be okay for games you don't really see in second-hand shops very often: KotOR, Morrowind, Jade Empire, Splinter Cell etc.

After playing the demo for Bodycount and reading up a bit on Black, I'm quite tempted to get it. Is it worth the 800 points?

Also, what happened to all the other posts in this thread!

For one week only, beginning January 18, Gold Members can get these two game add-ons for only 240 Microsoft Points, 40% off.
Game: Mass Effect
Original Price: 400 Special Price: 240
Save: 160 $2
Granted this post is pretty old, but I can't believe they had this offer awhile ago. I would have so bought that! /rage

Anyways, bit off-topic, but I was wondering if any has heard rumors of the original Toy Soldiers being DoTW, or know if has been in the past. The reason I ask is while I think it's an alright game, after playing the trail. I don't want to pay $25 (price with both DLC) for a game that's not only a year or so old, but is more than likely not getting downloaded very often. The reason I ask is because the sequel just came out, and I would imagine that they would try and entice people to buy the original with a discount.
