The Walking Dead
The Walking Dead Season One Finally Comes to XBLA in Australia

The Walking Dead has shambled its way onto consoles in Australia.

Although the game has been available on other platforms in the region for some time, the console versions were held back. Now they’re available in all their award-winning glory in Australia and New Zealand. It'll also be heading to Brazil on March 19th.

There are five episodes in the first season, all of which are available now for 400 Microsoft Points a pop.

Don’t know what The Walking Dead is? Not convinced it’s great? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? Read why Rich thinks it’s a masterpiece here.

And the worst part? It had nothing to do with the R18+ rating which went into effect on the 1st of January, 2013. Had TT submitted the game back in early 2012, there is every chance it would of passed.

Oh well, as the saying goes, "beggars can't be choosers". It is finally available and that is what matters most.

You guys are in for a great game. It's a little short, but it's SO WORTH every bit you spend on it.

Still kind of annoyed we missed the sale from a while ago. Hopefully they do something like that again soon. It'd be better than having the RDR or Borderlands DLC on sale again.

What do you mean RDR and Borderlands AGAIN? It's not on sale enough! I will wait to see if this goes down again in the next few months 2000 points is a lot. I have a lot of games to play to keep me going until possibly next gen anyway.

@25 Yes it does. EB Games have it listed at $48, but with a release date of TBC.

I just wish we were getting the Collector's Edition the US got.

Oh well, as someone else said, beggars can't be choosers. At least we can play the game now.

Get a US account people you could have played the game when the sales where happening and picked up all the eps for half price, all arcade games are region free on the xbox marketplace get on it.
You can also do it with PS3 if you have one which is even better becuase all the games on PSN are region free and cheaper to buy than the Aussie store.

Problem is DLC and Points are region locked so if we switch to an US account then we cannot buy MS points cards here but import from the US (might be the same for gold membership).

Anyway the games have been available on Steam for us since they came out in the US anyway so most people have got it on there instead.

Anyone who wanted to buy it has probably already bought it on the PC (like me, also it was game of the year that year so there is that), but cool for those who didn't have access to that avenue. Go buy it!
