Also, some Forza 3 stuff is on sale.

Most notably, the VIP pass for one dollar, which means easy access to a unicorn car if you have FM3 and buy the car to transfer to FM4.

Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass - £3.49
Max Payne 3 DLC - Painful Memories - £3.49
Max Payne 3 DLC - Local Justice - £2.69
Max Payne 3 DLC - Hostage Negotiation - £3.49
Max Payne 3 DLC - Deathmatch Made In Heaven - £3.49

£3.49 for the Rockstar Pass gets your more content than £13.16, since it contains all those packs and more.
Definitely worth it at a reduced price even if you don't get an awful lot of matches happening on the DLC maps the Night Stick/Stun Gun/Pepper Spray brought the lulz. God I hope those are in GTAV, if only to break up the monotony of typical firearms.

I would like to get MP3 season pass, but MP in that games was terribly unbalanced and I've had enough of getting matched with high ranked players that owed before I even noticed them. I am usually good at MP games, but this is just terribly unbalanced one, so not worth it IMO. I will get Bully though for sure=D

Question: with the migration from MS points to local currency I now have £3.47 in my Microsoft account, is there anyway I can use this for the May Payne 3 pass if I pay the extra 2p using a credit card?

If not, does this mean you can only use the money from MS points on items less than or equal to their value? I'm not sure I'm gonna find much to buy for £3.47...

Seriously!? You 'muricans need to realize that this is a British site, and therefore the prices aren't written in dollars! It's not that big a problem! Keep an currency exchange page running, boot up your Xbox, or check Major Nelson's blog! I don't use pounds, but I don't complain, neither does most other non-British users! Get over it!

Jees people with the moaning about pounds and dollars.

Have some world-sense and know that $1 = £0.64

Also America is either 5, 6, 7, or 8 hours behind the UK in terms of timezones. This is pretty common knowledge

As for my fellow "mericans" on this site, please stop your complaining, you are making us look bad. Just look up the current conversion rate and do some basic math in your head.

@60, not true. Cex sell the 360 scholarship edition for £30, and have done for a while. Most other stores check their prices against the same catalogue, so charge the same - in the rare event that they have this game in stock. The used-game price for this game on the 360 is ridiculously high, which is why I didn't mind paying £15 for the download from Live a few weeks ago. Getting it for £3 is a great deal, albeit frustratingly a little too late for myself.

You can get the PS2 or PC versions for about £5 though.

@64 Are you sure £30? That sounds stupid... The one near me sells most games for about £5-£10. I for one have seen Bully in there for £7. I was exaggerating on the £2 but paying an extra few quid doesn't bother me.

I buy on eBay, cheap as shit.

@66 Yes, I was surprised by it myself a few weeks back when I was looking into picking up the game again. PS2 (obviously not Scholarship Edition) and PC are cheap, but the 360 version was £30.

You can check Cex (and therefore most used-game store) selling prices, trading prices etc as well as stock in certain branches on their website. Won't link, but it's easy enough to google.

In any case, anybody who buys Bully for £3 in this sale has made a good purchase. Great game.
