DLC Price Drop Hits 360

Major Nelson has details on a temporary price cut for some Xbox 360 downloadable content.

Xbox 360 mouthpiece and all-around swell guy Major Nelson has details on a temporary price cut for some Xbox 360 downloadable content. The "Extended Play Download Days" sale will run through the end of October and it impacts 18 different packages and covers six different games.

Some car and track packs for Forza 2 are on the list, as are a handful of accessory and level collections for Beautiful Katamari. A Lost Odyssey bonus pack, some Guitar Hero 3 packs, and content add-ons for Mass Effect and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion are also on the list.

While I don't see myself jumping back into Forza 2 to check out the cars I passed over the first time, knocking $10 off of the price of Oblivion's Shivering Isles expansion and bringing it down to $20 sounds like a pretty good deal. Maybe once my 360 is finished exporting all my Rock Band songs for Rock Band 2 use, I'll give that a shot.

Might get the Katamari stuff, other then that, meh (largely because I already bought Shivering Isles).

Yeah, Shivering Isles is sounding good at 20 bucks...

Would be nice with some new Oblivion content... my points right now are going to go towards CasteCrasher though

mmmm mass effect!

Posted by Demodocus

kinda sucks because I already own most of that content. Oh well!

I feel stupid now. I bought Shivering Isles around the time it came out and never played it. I was just too busy with other games and I've always wanted to go back to Oblivion. I should probably play through it in preparation for Fallout 3.

I think I might get the Forza 2 track, I've been thinking about going back to that game for a while.

if these sell well hopefully it will expand to other titles :)

Posted by ZimpanX

I want free DLC please.

Posted by Aaox

Shivering Isles, huh? INTERESTING. But do you know if this is in the U.K? Is it just for the States?

Posted by John

crap, there all for games I don't have.... other than Forza 2, witch I don't like.

Posted by HatKing

Wow I thought I'd hold off on the Mass Effect content when that came out and now I'm glad I did.  Great thing about that it that due to my old HDD being stolen I have to play through that game again anyway...now it won't all be old stuff.  I might download some of the Forza stuff too, I like that game but rarley play it and have been wanting to go back and enjoy it some more.  This is a very good idea by MS hopefully they keep it up.

Not many games I own or DLC I care to buy.

Posted by Milkman

Hmm, maybe I'll finally get around to playing Shivering Isles....Nah.

I think the question on everyone's mind is; How much is horse armor now?

Posted by AndrewB

Too bad for the Oblivion add-ons that I now own them all on the PC, else I might think about biting. I wish they would release an all-inclusive Oblivion package with all of the download content for a decent price, now that the game has been out for ages.

Bring Down the Sky for 300 points seems a little weird. There's an example of why Microsoft needs to allow you to buy points in increments of 100.

Posted by AdventChild

This is for the UK as well as the US.  Which is great because now I can finally convince myself to get Shivering Isles and I may as well get the Mass Effect add-on as well.

Thinking about getting the mass effect thing.....

Posted by elektrixx

It's perfect for me because I just bought Mass Effect this week.

Posted by GalvanizedNails

dang, I hate being only a few points short of what I want to buy. I only need like 50 MS points to get the Forza Motegi Track Pack, but no, MS says I have to buy points in packs :/

Posted by Godzilla_Sushi

Aw....I wish PGR4 was discounted. I'd be all over that!

Posted by deaux

$10 off Shivering Isles?  Perfect.

Posted by cosmothehound

shivering isles was pretty blah if you ask me.

i play rpg's for secret items and side quests and character development shivering isles had 15 side quests max. and they all gave me shit.

edit: and gameplay too but its just more of oblivion not much else different.

CANT WAIT FOR FALLOUT ITS EXACTLY THE SAME CHARACTER SPEECH AS OBLIVION LOL.

Posted by Crono

Hmmm.... mass effect?  Nice.

Posted by Royale

I will get the Mass Effect DLC.

Posted by mako468

man i got the mass effect thing and its hella worth it

Posted by JacobBrodersen

I got the Katamari levels, it's still kinda expensive but wth, it's katamari ^^
