Microsoft is doing another GoD sale. There are games on sale for the whole week and there are daily deals. Remember that the prices are different for other countries so check and also sometimes it's cheaper if you buy the game using Microsoft points.

Here is the sale for July 2nd and the games that are on sale for the whole week. Expect to see price drops on XCOM, Bioshock Infinite, MGS Revengance and Tomb Raider.

Indeed! Thinking about grabbing borderlands 2.

Also, make note that The Witcher 2 is gonna be a single day sale as well. It's the one i'm waiting for.

Thanks for sharing that, it looks like they have some pretty good deals this time

#4 Edited by mrpandaman (864 posts) -

Well that's a step in the right direction.

Woah great price on Borderlands 2. Will definately be grabbing that.

#6 Posted by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

So for once they actually have some good deals? Color me shocked.

I wouldn't mind picking up a digital copy of Bayonetta on the cheap although I doubt it will be on there.

Went to buy Borderlands 2 there, but it's £8.99 in the UK, would much rather get Rogue Legacy on steam for around that price. Apparently its 400MS points on the Hungarian XBL, as are many of the sale games, so you can do the usual workaround to get those.

@demoskinos: @grilledcheez: @mrpandaman: They've actually been running decent deals for a while now. There have been publisher sales for SE, Sega and 2K as well as others. And this is in addition to their weekly deals (which are pretty hit or miss). They also did a GoD sale in the spring, and a summer sale last year, which wasn't really hitting on quality (The best games were Bionic Commando and Prince of Persia) but had a bunch of full games for $5. But for the people who complain that MS doesn't do sales, they do, its just no one notices them and MS does a shit job of promoting them

It has some charm, but the game play never felt like it was adapted for the gamepad very well

That's a ridiculous price for Borderlands 2, but everything else is kind of weak imo.

$10 for Max Payne 3 and $5 for great under-appreciated games like Bulletstorm? Sounds pretty good to me!

They're good, don't get me wrong (and I do like both games even if I didn't think either lived up to my expectations), but I've seen both games at similar prices on Steam and elsewhere before so I guess they're not as stand-out to me. (Also I haven't played Borderlands 2 whereas I have played both Bulletstorm and Max Payne, so...) But they're good prices for some good games without a doubt.

@the_laughing_man: It's pretty rough and doesn't look all that great. Still a fairly fun game though.

Just grabbed it. Waiting for it to download. I need a break from Metro Last Light. Have had two hard locks in the last two days of playing it and one progress breaking bug.

#16 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

Good prices, but all stuff I've played or don't want to play.

#17 Posted by DharmaBum (1049 posts) -

Max Payne 3 for $10 and PDZ for $3 are pretty good deals.

#18 Posted by Lexus2jz (92 posts) -

Some good deals, just picked up Bulletstorm, Max Payne 3 and Far Cry. If Xcom, bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider go on sale I will probably pick them up as well. M$ will be making some money off me this week.

#19 Edited by Clonedzero (4196 posts) -

Waiting for the Witcher 2 on one of the other day sales.

Thinking about getting Crysis 1, its only 5 bucks? can't really go wrong right?

#20 Edited by ManMadeGod (1559 posts) -

Dam, I remember playing Prey "back in the day". Whatever happened to the new one?

#21 Posted by KittyVonDoom (445 posts) -

You had me excited there and then I saw the list of games :/

Far Cry 3 for 8.99 might be the only thing that saves it.

#22 Posted by Kedi2 (246 posts) -

I picked up Bulletstorm, Crysis, Brothers in Arms, and PDZ. I'll also be picking up The Witcher 2 when it goes on sale, and if Metal Gear Rising is $20 or under I may end up getting that as well. I'm glad to see MS finally doing some good sales, I've ended buying quite a few games this year from their sales.

I'm shocked to finally see an Xbox Live "sale" be an actual sale.

#24 Edited by xyzygy (9935 posts) -

Ah can't believe I purchased AC3 for 30 bucks the other day when I could have had it for 15. But those are some pretty great prices.

#25 Posted by devilzrule27 (1239 posts) -

Amazon has Borderlands Game of the Year, Borderlands 2, and the Season Pass on PC bundled together for like 20 bucks. Just putting that out there as a heads up.

#26 Posted by Vinny_Says (5700 posts) -

guys, what's more worth it: Far Cry Instincts for $4.99 or Prey for $2.99? I assume both games no longer have any online community but I know Far Cry is 2 games in one while Prey is just a single 10 hour experience....

help me spend these lousy 500MS points lingering on my account.

#27 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3844 posts) -

@vinny_says: I don't know about FC but I actually enjoyed my time with Prey way back when I played it. Totally worth $3 bucks, it's not as bad as the guys make it out to be on the Bombcast.

I'm shocked to finally see an Xbox Live "sale" be an actual sale.

Had the same thought. That's a real good price for Borderlands.

#28 Posted by DarthOrange (3858 posts) -

I couldn't resist Borderlands 2 for $10, so I bought that.

Turns out Borderlands 2 is pretty good! Who knew!?

I would hope Dishonored would go on sale but apparently its not if that list is right

#33 Posted by iAmJohn (6114 posts) -

@vinny_says: Prey is a surprisingly decent game. Far Cry Predator is not the Far Cry you are looking for.

#34 Posted by 617_jbug (343 posts) -

Dishonored and the DLC are on sale next week.

The real question is when does the Steam sale start.

#37 Edited by ShaggE (6401 posts) -

I don't get paid until the 15th... why do you hate my wallet, Microsoft!? WHY?

#38 Posted by 617_jbug (343 posts) -
#39 Edited by mellotronrules (1179 posts) -

i wonder if dragon age is vanilla or ultimate/goty edition. cuz the FUCK if i'm paying more for dlc than the actual game price. and yes, that logic might be silly, but if it is just vanilla i'll just wait for the steam sale- i hear the game's a completely different (read: superior) experience on pc anyway.

Crysis 3- $19.99

#43 Posted by Clonedzero (4196 posts) -

Got Witcher 2 for ten bucks. Great deal downloading as we speak!

This is a pretty solid sale. I mostly enjoyed crysis. The last bit with the aliens was a drag though.

#44 Posted by FourWude (2261 posts) -

Almost tempted to pick up the Witcher 2 again. But since I've completed the game twice. I'll give it a miss.

#45 Posted by Lanceuppercut (129 posts) -

Crysis 3 is showing up as $19.99 for me on xbox.com. Seriously considering it, any opinions on it?

#46 Posted by TheHBK (5471 posts) -

I got Witcher 2 for the 360 for 10 bucks at Best Buy last October. Haven't opened it yet.

#47 Posted by EternalVigil (239 posts) -

Is Crysis 3 worth $20? I kinda thought Crysis 2 was pretty meh.

Also is Prey any good? Im curious to play it, just in case Prey 2 ever sees the light of day.

#48 Posted by 617_jbug (343 posts) -

Left 4 Dead 2 is $10

#49 Posted by Solh0und (1763 posts) -

Crysis 2 was meh so skip that one. I hear 3 improved alot since the second game.

Witcher 2 is $10! Yes!
