Xbox live deal of the week


Recommended Posts

This weeks is "Bionic Commando Rearmed" half price at 400 points (Gold Subscribers only).




"Bionic Commando Rearmed" seems to get decent reviews: -







I've often wondered where you find out what the deal of the week is as Microsoft don't seem to put it anywhere on their http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/ website. Apparently the deal of the week usually gets mentioned on this website which is run by the Director of Programming for Xbox Live: -




Deal of the week


After the successful run the deal of the week had last December, we’re bringing it back on a regular basis.  Starting Monday, February 23rd Xbox LIVE Gold members will receive a discount on a different piece of content each week (Arcade games, Game Add-Ons, Xbox Originals.) 


With this announcement of the program, I am also able to give you a tip on what the first deal of the week will be.

Braid the award winning Xbox LIVE Arcade title normally 1200 points will be available for Gold Members in all Xbox LIVE regions starting Monday for only 800 points, a 33% savings.


Braid will be available for the special price after Monday February 23rd at 13:00 GMT/0800ET/0500 PT *


Here are some details around the program:

The special deal pricing is available for Gold Members only

I’ll post the new deal each Monday morning when it becomes available at the special price

The Marketplace team is doing their best to make a Deal of the Week available in Xbox LIVE regions

*You must be signed in as a Gold Member on the web marketplace to see the lower prices


Coming later this month, Xbox LIVE Gold members will also have exclusive access to steep discounts on Game Add-ons for Ninja Gaiden II and Project Gotham Racing 4, as well as the original Xbox classic, Fable.

Ended up buying Bionic Commando after seeing this thread, just started playing it and the music is awesome.


Only on the first level like, thought i'd stick it on hard for a challenge and i'm guessing you have to hack the terminal to get past the level? Been stuck on the bastard for 30 mins and i'm about to explode.


Any tips on how to do it?

Really coming around on the marketplace, but how many games about matching colored shapes do we really need? Wish there were more updates of classic games.

Monkey Island 1's coming out soon but I think it's "just" a port.

Another shit deal: -




Deal of the Week: GoW2 Combustible Multiplayer Map Pack


This weeks Deal of the Week is now available. The Gears of War 2: Combustible Multiplayer Map Pack, normally 800 points is now available for Xbox LIVE Gold Members for 560 points


Also have this in mind: -

if people wait a month they can get it free with the Dark Corners add-on.


For those of you who do not know, THERE IS NO RETAIL VERSION of the Dark Corners Add-On! Due to fan outcry, it was cancelled (so go get your $5 back if you reserved it!)...now it is only going to be released digitally, with the new map pack at 1200 pts, and the bundle (new maps plus all 3 other map packs...2 post release and Flashback) for 1600 pts.


Like others have said, this "deal" is only for people out of the loop...definitely a better deal to wait a month, and get everything at once, for $20 (1600pts), rather than buying it in pieces.
