Shame there's no Xcom deals, i mean it is £49.99 on GoD...... Also, the slingshot pack would be nice to go on sale and even the elite soldier pack...

Mechro pack was free with the "premium club".

If Creature Dome was discounted I might have picked it up. Same with the Deathtrap avatar pet. Oh well, I'll just wait a month until the next 2K sale.

Marketplace deals are just like a sale at HMV where the item in the sale is sold at the price it should already be.

@7 Just play with someone who has the Creature Slaughter Dome, me and a buddy are playing through and I did it with him even though I don't have it. The launcher is sweet.

@9 Yup. The comedy DVD's that came out before Christmas like John Bishop's, Jack Whitehall's and such were all like £15-18. Then they had the nerve to have a massive sticker on JB's saying that it was "NOW ONLY £12.99".

Have pretty much all of that anyway. Might pick up the Bioshock 2 pack I'm missing, though I'm not sure I actually am missing one.

Axel and Pixel was actually pretty cool. Plus, cheap, easy and fun 200G.

Damn you 2K! I was trying to avoid spending any more money this month but looks like I'm going to have to now that Axel and Pixel & The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom are both on sale!

Borderlands deal is a rip off, GOTY edition goes for 20$ where I'm from and that goes for Mafia II, GOTY special edition whatever has a CD with all the DLC for 14.99 - 19.99.

I think it would be better if the site didn't even post these. All the comments are just people bitching about the deals every week. If your readers don't want this news, then don't clog up the site. It's like those ads on the dashboard that everyone cries about.

@3 Mechromancer was 800MSP, the codes were still kicking around a month after release in new boxes in some stores, though I'd imagine they're all gone now

@19 it was 25% off the season pass (though that did at least work out as 450MSP for each of the 4 DLCs once they're all out)

@20 Leviathan was half price sometime around Black Friday, Omega is still fairly new so give it a few months.

Quite frankly, it's about time they reduced those Mafia II story DLC.

In fact, they need to make that the new price point considering you can get the full game for around $15 now...

Cool. I just bought Mafia 2 yesterday, so this'll give me a chance to experience more than the core gameplay. Excellent timing. I just wish they had the Bioshock 1 stuff on sale, too.

both Mafia 2 and BL have GOTY (second disc sets) That if you can find those it comes with all of the DLC. Much much cheaper than this sale.

However, Europe doesn't seem to have the GOTY edition. Which is a shame...

Because of that, I might snag those DLC now that they're on offer again. Is the various packs worth it, by the way?

@34, I am from Spain and I own both GOTYs of Borderlands and Mafia II. You can easily buy them from Amazon UK, Zavvi or some other UK sellers. Mafia 2 edition is the Classics one called "Director's cut", maybe that's the reason why you can't find it.

@35 Yeah, the only ones I can find are the regular, Bonus and Collector's Edition.

...Wait, it's apparently the Bonus Edition. The front cover says it includes all 3 expansions(including The Betrayal of Jimmy) AND the 4 packs. Ugh, I was scared there for a moment. >_>

Picked up Mechromancer, but got everything else.

And yeah, why is Betrayal of Jimmy still not up for grabs? I have the game and the other DLCs, so I've no intention of buying the reissue or the PS3 edition just for it.
