Mass Effect 2
Today's 'Countdown to 2011' Daily Deals Are...

View author's profile
We all knew the Mass Effect 2 DLC price slash was incoming, but I'm not sure anyone expected price slashes of this magnitude. Not only does the decent Kasumi and Overlord DLC see a chop from 560 Microsoft Points to 200 points, but the excellent Shadow Broker DLC gets chopped from 800 MSP to 200 MSP. Yes, I said 200. In other words, it's almost a 3-for-1 kind of deal, so don't miss out on this excellent chance to extend the Mass Effect 2 experience if you haven't already. If you don't like Mass Effect... then why not dress your Avatar up like a copper for cheap today... No, really.


Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker - from 800 to 200 MSP
Mass Effect 2: Overlord - from 560 to 200 MSP
Mass Effect 2: Kasumi - from 560 to 200 MSP
GAMER - US only - 1360 to 960 MSP
Cool Jobs Policeman Uniform - from 240 to 120 MSP (male / female)

The rest of the promotion should shape up as follows:

December 29th:

Monday Night Combat
Plants vs. Zombies Mask

December 30th:

Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Sonic the Hedgehog 3
Sonic the Hedgehog 4
Sonic Adventure
Sonic & Knuckles
Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing Car
The Notebook

December 31st:

Yoda Green Lightsaber

Holy crap those are good deals! Anybody who's thinking about picking them up... do it now. The content is pretty good. One coveate: GAMER. They should give points to people for having to see that movie.

This is why it is smart to wait for a discount on DLC. I will enjoy these all the more at these prices. Especially Shadow Broker - i'm really surprised at Microsoft good will with these discounts.

Question for someone! Ok, say I'm playing ME:2 and aiming for 100% achievements. Do the DLC show up always? Or is there a chance I don't need to buy them all to get 1000/1000 for this one game? Thanks!

This is quite possibly the best deal I've ever seen on xbox. And probably the best I will ever see.

Paying $2.50 USD for *ANY* ME2 DLC is insane enough, but $2.50 for Shadow Broker is...broken. For lack of a better term. As someone else here already did, even if you DON'T own ME2, if you ever plan on playing it grab it now. I can't recommend it enough. ME2 was far from my favorite game (though it was great), but you honestly can't beat the price for the amount and quality of the content.

Second best deal I've ever seen. 800 to 200 is great, and I'm glad I waited. I only just started ME2 this week. But the best deal I've seen so far was the CCR album getting slashed from 1600 to 400. Same percent, but more savings. and worth every cent.

Whoever doesn't have the Mass Effect DLC, should pick it up now even if they do not own the game lol. Also #13 you're an idiot. You shouldn't post something as stupid as that. You make me want to go buy the police uniform just so you never try to friend me.

i got the dlc for ME2 the day it was released and it was well worth the money but if anybody hasn't had the dlc for mass effect 2 then get it now because its a must, the quality of kasumi and overlord is brilliant but shadow broker is the best piece of dlc i have ever played, besides the money you save by getting them now leaves you extra money for the weapon packs, ideal if you want your insanity playthrough to be that tini bit easier, also i would recommend using the infiltrator class and get your cloak maxed out for insanity, try to use squad mates with barrier, A.I.hacking and overload,

Like many others, I couldn't believe my eyes this morning. ME2 DLC for 200?!

Needless to say, I downloaded ASAP. So glad I waited!

On a kind of related note, has anybody gotten their 400MSP from the "spend 1600 on select Marketplace content" offer around a month and a half back? Coz I have yet to receive my 400... Please inbox me if you have any details, I will love you. THANKS.

@#58, you're thinking of the Cerberus Network, each new copy of ME2 comes with a code to download it for free anyway. You only need to pay 1200 if you buy a secondhand copy without a code.
