Beyond Good and Evil for 240 is a GREAT price, hell, 800 points was a great price!

At the very least people, do yourselves the favour of downloading the demo today. You should be able to decide within 15 minutes if the game is worth 3 bucks. Which it oh so very much is.

@Axelrod If you thinkg BG&E is crap, you need to play more games, because it is one of the best titles on the cube. And also one of the best arcade games on XBLA. 240 is basically like getting a full priced retail title for a pound.

Beyond good and evil is well worth the full price, I'd hardly call it crap. Not heard good things about Daggerdale though...

The amount of stuff thats been in these deals have been utter garbage. Except from a selected few. Why havent they put they black ops maps on sale yet ? Hundreds of arcade games that they could of put on sale, im still waiting for the samurai warriors xl dlc to be reduced but seeing these deals I doubt that will ever happen.

Picked up D&D Daggerdale last night for 600, considering both MK Arcade and Risk Factions, and already own BG&E. Here's hoping they have some better deals next month.

Bought Beyond Good and Evil without even getting the trial, 240 points is such a small amount it isn't worth worrying over if its not as enjoyable as I thought.
Rest of the deals are pretty meh, bought 2100 points today as well, just get the DR2 OTR DLC with it and maybe Magic 2012, otherwise not much at all I'm interested in.

#14 there is a theme available for that price, yes. But for me atleast the game which is 1.68g, is available at 240 also. PS Microsoft- ANYTHING that is on xbla and is over 2 years old needs to be cut by 50% period. Some of this stuff is way to old to be asking full price.

Loved Beyond Good and Evil on the ps2 and couldn't wait to get it as soon as it came out, which I did. Now its on sale for 240 haha. Most discounts post-sale like this would upset me but It's so worth it that I'd pay full price for it again if I had to. 240 is a steal people. pick it up. hell if I had the extra cash I'd buy it for ya thats like what? $2.50? pack a lunch to work one day you'll have a great game forever haha

These aren't bad deals, by any means, but is anyone disappointed that they already owned the majority of the Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals? :( Would have spent the points if there was something I didn't already own.

On a side note, anybody that can afford $3 and doesn't have Beyond Good and Evil HD needs to. There's no excuse. Amazing game.

I didnt play BG&E back on the ps2 or the gamecube, and after playing the trial i was kinda amazed of how it made me feel. It felt soo fluid and smooth compared to alot of games, i guess back then we were just spoiled with goodies and now when creativity is a dying artform we are slowly getting turned into brainwashed zombies

Picked up Risk aswell, its kinda sucky but hey it was 200msp might get MK aswell later today. Gonna trial it first

Was Daggerdale really as bad as everyone keeps saying? I remember not being too impressed by the demo, but not disgusted either. I'm also not quite sold on BG&E after playing the demo. Does it get better or more interesting?

Totally lame, I was bored last night and decided to buy Street Fighter II Turbo since it was only 400 points and I missed the classic. Only to wake up today and Mortal Kombat (1,2 & 3) are the exact same price. Fuck....

YES! I knew holding out on BG&E and Risk would pay off in spades :D

So far this week has been awesome for me, but that's because I've been reluctant to buy what's not on sale for money reasons :P

@38 I thought that at first two but I downloaded the trial when it first released and fell in love with it.

Anyway, I already have all but Mortal Kombat, but I'm not a fan of fighting games so i'll have to pass.

I might pick up MK but other than that these deals are pretty crap imo.

@41 It's not what #1 said, it's how #1 said it. There are a lot better ways to say you aren't interested in a game or didn't like the game than to say they are crap.

Will give BG&E demo a try.

240 for such game is nothing. For the one who missed it : get it :D

I didn't really like the xbox live demo for Beyond good and Evil, but I remember playing a different demo on the PS2 for it (set later in the game) and I absolutely loved it :P
That, and I had 320 MSP left after the Da Vinci disappearance means I snapped it up :D

I'm really disappointed in this years "deals." I thought the point of Black Friday/ Cyber Monday was to lure people in with a ton of cheap stuff that they can't resist? Didn't they discount a whole bunch of stuff last November? Where's the variety? I guess I'll save my points for X-mas....

Got BG&E. Played the demo and enjoyed it but wasn't sold on spending $10 on it exactly. Just got 800 MSP as a gift for my birthday, and this deal happened so I couldn't really justify ignoring it. $3? Pfft.

My friend liked it a lot and I know everyone pretends it's the best thing ever, so I figured why not?
