You guys, Bomberman Act Zero.

#3 Posted by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

All the good ones, I already own. Though for 400 points, I might pick up Kameo or Perfect Dark. It's a step in the right direction, but they should try it with games people actually want to buy.

#4 Posted by niamahai (1405 posts) -

Hows the single player for Rockstar table tennis?

#5 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

Picked up Perfect Dark Zero at the gamestore for 1 euro, so I'll pass, it was the only game I wanted from here anywhere.

#6 Posted by musclerider (589 posts) -

I keep reading that list and wishing it was one of the real Viva Pinata games.

#7 Posted by EXTomar (4760 posts) -

Except for Bomberman this is kind of a whole lot of meh and even for Bomberman Act Zero I'm not sure it is worth $5.

#8 Posted by Sean2206 (264 posts) -

I'll probably get 2100 points and get Bionic Commando and Prince of Persia always wanted to play those. Then I'll use the rest of the points to get trials evolution. More games on my backlog to play. This is the right move although pretty severe from no sales on GoD to these huge sales not complaining but it would be great if we got these deals on more recent or bigger games.

#9 Posted by believer258 (11948 posts) -

There are precisely three games on there that I've ever had even the slightest interest in. One of those I already own and the other two I no longer have interest in.

Can we have a sale on some good games, please?

#10 Posted by BigDaddy81 (329 posts) -

For $5 I might finally pick up Dark Void.

#11 Posted by CptBedlam (4453 posts) -

My time is too valuable for any of these games. Minus Prince of Persia maybe...

I was just going to say... I'd buy that at $20!

Gotta clear out those gigabytes, right?

#13 Posted by theoldhouse (439 posts) -

anybody who hasn't played Prince of persia should pick it up.

Otherwise this is a pretty terrible list.

#14 Posted by Creamypies (4070 posts) -

Might pick up Dark Void & Bionic Commando for that price.

#15 Posted by pyromagnestir (4324 posts) -

Is this 2008 Prince of Persia? I'll probably buy it if it is.

You shut your mouth.

#17 Posted by kermoosh (911 posts) -

Yeah. When I first glanced over the list, I thought that was the actual sequel(Trouble in Paradise), and was about to grab that up because I never played it. Then the word "party" sunk in and I remembered that that stupid party/mini game collection existed.

MS is full of shit.

As awesome as the multiplayer. The gameplay is just such immense fun that I honestly get as much out of it no matter what I'm playing against.

Might buy Prince of Persia, IF these offers also apply to EU.

#21 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Oh how cute. Microsoft is pretending like it's Valve. A shame they didn't go all the way and lower the prices even more for some of those games (Bomberman and Perfect Dark, I'm looking at you).

#22 Posted by The_Hiro_Abides (1263 posts) -

Wow I'd only consider Bionic Commando and Prince of Persia. Although I already played through both so probably won't do this.

#23 Posted by Bobby_The_Great (1005 posts) -

I might get Kameo, I always wanted to try that out. 

#24 Posted by Sean2206 (264 posts) -

I was gonna go buy Bionic commando and PoP there now but it seems they have replaced bionic commando with Alone in the dark and either replaced or never made it clear but that Prince of Persia is forgotten sands. So I think I'm going to go pick them up in a bargain bin or online somewhere. Just letting you guys know.

#25 Posted by DarkFury (369 posts) -

This is pretty pathetic when compared with Playstation Plus right now. Yes, you need to subscribe to that as an extra, but then Xbox LIVE Gold hasn't really proven its worth in recent years. These games are 5-6 years old!

sadly it's not Prince of Persia (2008) but The Forgotten Sands ... sorry, no sale from me :/

#27 Posted by AjayRaz (12429 posts) -

how can you have a digital clearance game sale...?

ah, whatever. i'll either buy perfect dark or skip out on yet another deal of the week.

#28 Posted by StarFoxA (5158 posts) -

$3.99 for Prince of Persia? That's fantastic!

#29 Posted by NegativeCero (3005 posts) -

Is GRAW worth it? I've only ever played the demo when I first got my 360.

Also, they should've been doing sales way earlier. On Demand prices are ridiculous.

#30 Posted by downtime58 (224 posts) -

Ugh, I can smell those games from here. As somebody else already noted, with the recent Playstation Plus goings-on, Microsoft really needs to step up to highlight the value of Xbox Live.

Between the glut of ads and the focus on a myriad of apps, my love affair with Live is definitely in its death throws. It used to be the reason to own an Xbox, now it's almost the reason why not to own an Xbox.

#31 Posted by Fattony12000 (7453 posts) -

FINALLY! 75% off Perfect Dark Zero!

#32 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

Wow. Most of these games suck ass. Not that great of a deal honestly.

#33 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

It's a start, and a number of those games are actually worth the money if you haven't played them. They are certainly worth half the price of a movie ticket.

#34 Posted by GnomeonFire (750 posts) -

There's something wrong with the way you do business, if you're selling any of those games normally at $20.

#35 Posted by Dimsey (955 posts) -

Somewhat interested in Prince of Persia and maybe Bionic Commando. The other games on that list I either already own or wouldn't touch with a 10ft pole. 

#36 Posted by Ramone (2972 posts) -

Is Alone in the Dark worth getting for £4? I've always been curious about it.

#37 Posted by PenguinDust (12532 posts) -

Wouldn't it be wise for all of these to be permanently reduced at this point? I mean, who's going to pay $20 for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs? And, launch titles like Perfect Dark Zero and Kameo, well I don't think anyone has a $20 urge to play those these days. All I am saying is that I think these would sell better on a regular basis if they were always this price.

#38 Posted by razkazz (169 posts) -

I was excited for a minute but used physical copies of just about all of these can be purchased at the same price or lower.

#39 Posted by Barrock (3536 posts) -

So it's Prince of Persia: The Forgotton Sands, not PoP. :(

Bionic Commando is also still $20.

So yay Microsoft!

#40 Posted by HistoryInRust (6321 posts) -

I had some points hanging around. Picked up Dark Void. It's not great. But hey.
