View author's profile

As the Countdown to 2013 Daily Deals continue, it's time for a small selection of Rockstar titles to receive a one-day price cut. There's four games to choose from, as you can see right here:

  • LA Noire - Was: $29.99 Now: $19.99 (£11.99) 33% off
  • Red Dead Redemption - Was: $29.99 Now: $19.99 (£11.99) 33% off
  • Max Payne 3 - Was: $59.99 Now: $39.99 (£14.99) 33% off
  • Midnight Club: LA - Was: $14.99 Now: $9.99 (£8.99) 33% off

It's the perfect opportunity to brush up on your Rockstar games before Grand Theft Auto V hits in spring 2013. Or whatever... We just wanted to tenuously tie this in with GTA V somehow...

Max Payne 3 was $39.99 already... I assumed it was going to drop to $20 which isn't bad. $40 is a rip.

LA Noire is dirt cheap used but $20 is still a decent price.

I'm assuming Games on Demand can't fall lower than $9.99 otherwise Midnight Club should be $5 maybe $7.50

Red Dead isn't a terrible price but it'd be more worth it if it was the GotY edition.

33% off is a joke but I guess all of the daily deals can't be winners. Still impressed by the sales this year. Yesterday especially.

RDR (XBox Classics Version) costs 19,49 € at right now, LA Noire is at 14,75 € - where are those "deals"?

@ #4: There were GoD sales below 9,99 € in the past months, like e.g. Metro 2033

Man, I'd be using the GoD marketplace if it accurately reflected the prices at my local game store.

Microsoft are terrible at GBP/USD conversions. £15 for MP3 but $40? Midnight club $10/£9? I want to know how they work that out.

Max Payne 3 is only AUD$20 on the Australian marketplace. I can't believe it! Knowing my luck, they'll announce a GOTY version with all the DLC 5 minutes after I buy it.

I´m from Czech Republic and usually buying games from UK for same price I have GOTY RDR or LA noire.... and on I don´t know why to pay same for less ...

Countdowns to 2013 is great I spent around 6000 ms point and another 4-5000 plan...but rockstar is bad...if they give goty for this price on digital...why not, but buy games without dlc and pay another few pounds or dollars for 4-5 dlc?

@6 - They all equated to more than USD $9.99 though is my point. It would have to reach 7.57€ to equal out to $9.99 USD. I think they use different pricing based on demand (or some relative formula) in each country which could explain how the prices vary (along with the fact that each country costs a different amount for base size msps)

Rockstar usually comes correct on their sales. Last year all the RDR dlc was ridiculously cheap if I remember right. Today was just a huge bust (minus the Aussie price on MP3)

Midnight Club on Demand IS the "Complete" (GOTY) version, you don't have to buy any DLC separately.

Also, LA Noire requires you to download some of the game's cases in the start menus (for free) to have the complete *non-GOTY* version. The game was originally multidisc and the entire thing couldn't fit within the file limitations of GoD.

Just got the disc of LA Noire for ten bucks new a couple of weeks ago, and I've seen the GOTY for as low as $15. Least impressive day this year so far. That's a lot of hard drive space for not so great prices.

Not there on my Dashboard. All I have is 'Hidden Gems', 'Best of 2012' and 'Assassins Creed 3'.
Maybe it's a difference between the UK and US dashboards? If so, that's pathetic. It means a load of people have potentially missed sales on things they want because MS can't be bothered to sort out the dashboard. Gee, thanks guys.

RED DEAD has been $20 at Best Buy for like 6 months or more, Pre-owned for $15, disappointing "Deal", got Trine 2 yesterday at 67% off, now that's a deal.

You can buy Max Payne 3 for $40 as a digital download through the sale or buy the collectors edition at game stop for $20. Doesn't make a lot of sense.

what a lame excuse of a 'deal' this is. recently bought red dead goty for the same price, on a disc, delivery included. digital downloads should be way cheaper than physical copies. you can't even resell them (not that i would)

@35 Rockstar set the price (both regular and sale) and Games on Demand has made MS plenty of money with very little cost to them. Speaking of failure... you have no idea what you're talking about.

This is just a massively missed marketing opportunity - if they were smart they could've put 'I am Alive' on sale today with the whole mayan end of the world hoopla and all!!! Instead they went for crappy GoD demand deals for titles most people who would want them already own - and even then, NOT the complete editions people would want to buy at this stage if they didn't already have these...

Nice way to read your audience Microlame.

Currently have a load of people on my FL for the purpose of getting that T-Mobile myfaves achievement for Midnight Club LA (join a session with 5 of your friends in an online cruise), I can lasso them up for you.
Add me (+ send a message) if you need it and want people to do the flags and online races with.

@15 & 16

You are not alone. It's not on my dash either, so I suspect that noone in Europe has it on their dashboard, which is just stupid.


That might be true, but since it's $40 and not $20, your point is not really valid.
