View author's profile

Yet more Xbox Live news now, as Microsoft has sent us an update detailing what we can look forward to over the next couple of weeks, which includes the beginning of the eagerly anticipated Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta, the arrival of the Xbox Nations promotion, more XBLA games and more deals than you can shake a stick at.

Section 8: Prejudice and The Fancy Pants Adventure will be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade next week, while this Friday sees some nice one-day deals, and the next Deal of the Week will see a SEGA special coming alongside the Xbox Nations discounts, which will include cut-price PopCap games, cheap Your Shape exercise routines and more.

In the present meanwhile, Bulletstorm's Gun Sonata DLC is now available for 800 Microsoft Points, which should help you get in the mood for the Gears of War 3 beta. Y'know, with all that testosterone, those one-liners and stuff.

@3 shame its always the same games on sale it seems, or games that majority of people already have.
Hot pursuit DLC needs to go on sale already, I want my 100% back but 1680 points for add ons is crazy

I'd recommend ilomilo at 400MSP. It's still worth it at full price, plus with the points you save, you can get the "Autumn Tale" DLC, which basically adds another half of the game! No-one can go wrong there.

Glad to see outrun on there for all those who wanted it to go on sale before it was taken off.

Me, I'm true to the cause and got the classic for what it was worth on release. Awesome game.

if you didn't already buy LIMBO, it's a GREAT game at 600 points; very creative, full of "Ah-ha" moments as you play, just don't be tempted to look at a walk thru if you get stuck, keep trying and you'll figure it out and say, "wow, that was really cool."

Section 8 is coming out for XBLA for 1200 msp thats 5 Bucks less then I paid for the first one which was probably one of the worst games I ever played. well at least the studio put it out for what it was destined for in the first place. got to say it is a step above Breach but that is saying a lot. Have a feeling it will be a deal of the week a lot in the coming months no matter how much you polish a turd it is still a turd in the long run.

getting ilomilo. been waiting for that awhile. For anyone who is looking at these sales, including this weeks, here are my suggestions.
Plants vs. Zombies, Peggle (with dlc), Braid, Limbo, Castle Crachers, and Trials HD. Those are all great games.

Hah. Gears 3 Beta. All month. All Day, Err Day.

A free full game, because we would now be testing Gears 3 full game as Epic has only released Beta's with a Campaign. So Testing out the full game will be awesome!

@25 I've been waiting too even after most reviews for the PSN version are coming up as kinda iffy. Been asking Square-Enix for some info, anything really, regarding an Xbox release date but they haven't been responding at all. Thanks to that and these awesome deals I'm going to jump on Shadow Complex and see IF I have the points left for Moon Diver. ~_~

They better be right of the MK Avatar Place because couple weeks ago, they said Zombie Pets was coming out March 31st and it never did.

Anyways, I might pick up Plants Vs Zombies or just save it up for something else.

Fancy Pants! :) Was fully expecting that to be a Summer Of Arcade 1200msp game. Nice to see it now, and only 800. :)

Yea, Gears 3 beta... would rather have a demo with a single player level, but... eh, I'll end up jumping on for about 20min to see what it looks/plays like, then never play public MP again.

People haven't learned their lesson from Blacklight: Tango Down and Breach? People actually want to waste more points on another crappy XBLA FPS? Weird. I gave up after Blacklight.

So many good deals, I will probably end up with Peggles Nights and Ilomilo, since I already have like 8 games on the list from previoud DoTW. True to them being generous, but they keep putting most of the same shit. I would like to see other games discounted. Been waiting for Ludicity (lucidity?) for ages!! How about Alien Breed 3 so I can complete trilogy?

Outrun Online Arcade is finally on sale. Been wanting it for ages now. Almost picked it up a couple weeks back. Guess I was smart to hold off.

Already own everything else... Except Plants Vs. Zombies. Might have to pick that one up as well.
