well I like my sales, just look at the frenzy steam sales cause!

They really need to these mega sales on console really, developers could rake in the money especially as the games will be digitally distributed!

they need to really make more of these sales on Xbox some good deals today http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-07-02-assassins-creed-3-borderlands-2-far-cry-3-discounted-in-xbox-marketplace-sale

for £8.99 you can get (each naturally) Assassins Creed 3, Borderlands 2, Max Payne 3, Far Cry 3 for today only!

If they do more of these sales they can really mop up with game sales! With so many games not making much money and these Xbox Live purchased games not sellable developers can really bring in the money and not having to make more copies of a game will keep costs down

I think I will be purchasing Far Cry 3 for £8.99 that's a good price!

I bought from the web site directly or you can search from the xbox, but the web site was easier

I know exactly what you mean shifty! Willow said about it and to find the games that were priced at £8.99 i had to search for them individually!

they should make it easy to find, otherwise they could be missing out on sales. £9 for Far Cry 3 is an amazing price, Assassins Creed 3 is also the same price for today only

seems that some games are reduced for the whole of the sales and some just a single day! Just check xbox.com much easier!

I think Perfect dark is overpriced compared to other games! Still have that game got it with my 360. It was never as good as people expected it to be!

wonder if people still play it online! I also got Kameo at launch as well that was a good game, never finished it, should go back and do so. I always think its a shame Rare never made the impact they were expected to

we are so different lol. loved perfect dark and didn't think much of Kameo lol.

For 2.49 it is not too bad though bud. had to sell mine a while back and always wanted to get it back.

This is abit naughty, but completely above board. Some of the games are cheaper on the Hungarian marketplace, like the orange box is 160msp.

I assume you wouldn't be able to play these games on our uk sign in if bought from the hungary marketplace though?

You set up a dupe account and have this signed in as player two, this then allows you to play that game with player one. Just like if one profile buys a arcade game, a second profile can play it.

There's a couple of Japanese arcade games that I've done this with, as it allows you to access the Japanese market place by setting up a Japanese account.

http://www.trueachievements.com/CyberTroopers-VirtualOn/achievements.htm?gamerid=354251

You can then use up to 800msp brought from somewhere like game as these are region free. There are also three free arcade games (one being a kinect game) on the american marketplace you can download.
