Forums - Microsoft Discussion - XBLA [Sale Over!] Microsoft winter sale started, all deals listed here

Massive sale going down on the XBLA, definately keep an eye over the next few days because they also promise some stuff for the likes of GTA5 coming in the daily deals. I know the prices I'm going to list are in Euros but at least you'll get an idea of the reduction for the people in the states and you can see if it's something you're interested in you can check out the $ price on your own system.

Thank you very much GamechaserBE for putting together a great post of all their 2nd week Sales find it here at

Really some absolute bargains in there and yeah GTA5 reduced down for the holiday season. Way to go MS for sourcing some worth while titles to reduce for the sale.

Daily Deal

1 games on demand game... that is how big CoD is that it is expected to be considered an entire day worth of daily sales... Sad times. Unless you're a fan of Guns, Dogs and being teabagged by 12 year olds for an evening.

Call of Duty: Ghost Dogs - 25% off - $44.99

Game add ons

A ton of the dlc content for Wolverine origins and UMvC3 are up on sale it's just stuff like colour swaps but it's being reduced because after the new year Capcom loses the rights to Marvel and they have to remove all mvc stuff from XBLA and PSN because of it.

 

There we go, I'll be trying to edit this to keep up on top of the daily deals try to make sure people don't miss out on some awesome deals but yeah even from the normal wintersale getting stuff like Wreckateer (a kinect angry birds clone that works) and a whole host of other cool little arcade games for under a euro is amazing, not to mention all that marvel stuff being reduced as a lot of it will be taken down from XBLA when capcom loses the rights to it, so get shopping guys.

Finally 100%'d Pikmin 2, what a fantastic game that is... can't recommend it enough for people to play.

These sales are great! I know last year I bought most of my games during this time. Then played them over the course of the year.

I really wish they would do sales like these several times a year. Like 'Sumer Sale Week(s)' or "Xspring Super Sales.'

Thanks for posting.

I am sad for the loss of innovation, all gaming and gamers mourn the pushing back of the future to another time.  The ice cream may be melting.  E3 Save us all!

that's the problem tho, they do actually have sales on now and again, up until last week there was a big ubisoft sale on games on demand stuff, only thing is they sometimes don't advertise it very well, tis a damn shame too because if more people knew they'd put down some cash and get awesome games for it. Tis why I made this thread heh.

Nelsons own site is pretty good for announcing upcoming sales, he is a good PR man and a fan of games.

Is the Borderlands 2 Ultimate vault hunter upgrade the first or second one?

Nothing in the OP looks too interesting to me but I will pay close attention to the daily deals. Over the past week I bought From Dust, Mark of the Ninja, and Outland, so I should watch my spending on XBLA anyway.

Lol, I bought the same games, but also sleeping dogs and Beyond good and evil HD. This sale does not look to have as good games, nor prices as what had co e this last month.

Edit: I should say games I have not played yet as Borderlands 2 is Goat!



Paintball The True First Person Shooter!!!!  


No Xbox One deals?

Some decent deals here. Looks like only Nintendo is yet to have a Christmas sale

PSP, PS3, Vita, 3DS, Wii U and PS4.

'Man is Wolf to Man'

Yes, I usually check his site quite often. He is the most fair person out there.  True he works for Microsoft, but he will also say nice things about the other consoles and talk about games on their system.

They do, they have sales all the time.  But they have to extra 'one day only' ones in December holiday season.  I got some Skyrim DLC and Walking Dead at like 50% or 75% off.  Those are the deals I wish they had more often.
