Not one to let Sony have all the sales, Microsoft has posted its own list of digital download price cuts. These will take effect at 3AM Pacific on Friday and go through the weekend.
|Item||Old Price||Sale Price|
|Arkadian Warriors||800 ||500|
|Golf: Tee It Up!||800||500|
|Guitar Hero III - Metallica "Death Magnetic" Full Album||1440||1000|
|Forza Motorsport 2 - March Car Pack||400||250|
|Crackdown - "Getting Busy" Bonus Pack||800||500|
|Rock Band - All That Remains Pack 01||440||290|
|Lips - The Remedy (Jason Mraz)||160||100|
|Gears of War 2 - "Last Day" Theme||250||180|
|Sonic Unleashed - Theme||250||180|
|Castle Crashers - Premium Theme||250||180|
Right off, I'd like to say that as much as I enjoy using our radical table-makin' tool, I think I prefer Sony's similar sale to this one, just because everything got cut to the nice, easy-to-remember price of $4.99. That said, there are some winners in this list.
If you don't own Rez HD, you're a bad person. Consider this a great chance to pick it up. Don't worry if you don't actually like the game or think it's totally short and shallow, that's secondary. Also, Assault Heroes for 250 points is a steal, as its one of the better dual-joystick shooters on the service. But don't just wildly buy everything, either. I don't think I'd pay any amount of money for a copy of Brain Challenge or Boogie Bunnies.
Lastly, I love how the Rock Band pack is named "All That Remains Pack 01," as if there will ever be so many All That Remains packs that we'll require double digits.
And though I count myself as the "I think paying for themes is totally lame" type, that NXE-ready Castle Crashers theme is pretty sweet.
[UPDATE] It's probably also worth noting that this sale is only going down in the US, and it will only apply to Xbox Live Gold members.
