Assassin's Creed 3 is on sale for $19.99 today only at Amazon
post #3722 of 4161
I think it's actually a pricematch - GameStop has it for $20. Same with Farcry 3, RDR GOTY, and others..

If you wait another week, it will be free on XBL.

I think it is AC2 that we get for free.

It is. Also, apparently it'll be two separate deals, one from July 1-15, and one from July 16-31, so you might have to wait a little longer than another week. (I'm not sure which they'll lead with, but I'd assume it'll be Halo 3.)

I really hope they give us better deals with this program. This is almost a joke to give us these games when I am betting Uncharted 3, Xcom, and Saints Row the Third on my ps+.

My bad, I confused the 3 in Halo with AC.

Actually, I am also hoping the deals continue on forward and not just until the Xbox One launches. It would be nice to have access to free games.

"I hope the free stuff I get is better." Sounds like a first world problem. I didn't have Fable 3, and I've never purchased an Assassin's Creed game. So for the first 3 games so far, I'm quite happy to be getting two games I never had.

I never bought NHL 2004 either, but I wouldn't be too thrilled to get it free from MS, particularly compared to PS+.

Actually, you won't see too many XBL subscribers complaining too much, especially since we were used to not getting any games for free at all. The only exclusive benefit of Live to note is ESPN, which has come in handy for some sports events. I for one like the free games now and would like to see MS keep that up beyond the One launch date. However, now that PS+ is a requirement for PS4 online gaming, I suppose MS can get away with just providing the same service they have been for the past decade.

The Microsoft Store has several games for $12.99

Lollipop Chainsaw
Kingdoms Of Amalur Reckoning
SSX
Soul Caliber V
Raving Rabbids: Alive & Kicking Kinect Game
Bethesda Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition

More games can be found here.
post #3733 of 4161
Do you think one of the 13 free games will be Saints Row 3? Poor Microsoft, think of all the sales they are losing for the rest of the year. I'm not going to buy anything for the rest of the year because the chance of getting it free after buying it would drive me insane.
Seems you could buy the 3 month deal for 20 bucks and then buy it again for the last 3 months for a total of 40 bucks for 13 games. hmmmmmm
post #3734 of 4161
Back when the 360 was announced, I stopped buying games completely. I'd only had the original for about a year, so I didn't have a huge library, and I was still playing PC games. With the Xbox One announcement, I've also decided to stop buying games until it comes out. I don't have as much free time as I used to anyway, so it's not that hard. And I have a few games in the backlog. Plus with the free ones, I should be set for the 360. The only game I considered getting on the 360 was GTA V, but I suspect that there will be a GOTY version for the Xbox One some time next year. Rockstar doesn't want to announce it now, as no one would buy it in September and they would just wait.
post #3735 of 4161
Just remember when the new Xbox and PS4 games hit, these will be launch titles.....some will be great, some will be "meh", but most will play or look less than idea compared to the games we'll get 2-4 years into the life cycle.......to not buy any games just to 'wait' for untested and unproven hardware to see how it handles it seems like you might be setting yourself up for disappointment?? They're games.......buy em cheap, enjoy em, or don't.....worst case you buy some cheap games that you never wind up playing. 50 Cents Blood In The Sand, I'm looking at YOU.
post #3736 of 4161
Already have a few games still in shrinkwrap on the shelf, so I have plenty to play. And I know how launch games look. Perfect Dark Zero, I'm looking at you. Halo is my favorite series of Xbox games, so I'm quite happy that the next Halo is NOT a launch title, and MS/343 will have a year to get it looking good. Gears of War came out a year after the 360 launch, and it was the first game that really showed off what the 360 was capable of. I suspect that's MS's plan with Halo 5 as well.

Bunch of games for $10 with free shipping.

Anyone got Syndicate? Seems the reviews are rather ho-hum except for co-op... I might pick it up if others are going to do the same!
post #3738 of 4161
For $10 cannot go wrong with Binary Domain IMO. I thought it was a really good game and underrated.

12 month Xbox Live card from New Egg via Ebay. $34.99

Awesome find, thanks, just ordered one.
post #3741 of 4161
In case anyone is interested, newegg is doing a promostion where when you order the new Tomb Raider, you get Hitman absolution for free. Two recent games for $35 isn't bad at all.

I can't see the list at work, so how many games are they listing right now? Also, this is just crazy. A few people on this forum will tell you that MS never does sales on any of their games...

Over 30 with a decent mix of recent (1 year or less) and older titles.
post #3745 of 4161
Here are the titles going on sale next week. Major Nelson said they would go on sale over the course of next week, so most likely it will be a handful of titles each day that are that day's deal, not a weeklong thing:

Damn. I just did the Tomb Raider/Hitman bundle at newegg that I posted earlier. I wonder if I could have gone cheaper with the sale next week.
post #3747 of 4161
It's games on demand, so it'll probably be more expensive than the disc-based deal you got earlier anyways!

The Xbox LIVE “Ultimate Game Sale” starts today

Assassins creed 3 - $14.99
Borderlands 2 - $9.99
Max Payne 3 - $9.99
Far Cry 3 - $19.99

These prices only good for today, July 2
post #3749 of 4161
wow might have to pick up Borderlands and Max Payne. That'll keep me on my 360 for another few months tongue.gif

btw if anyone hasn't played Dragon Age: Origins, it's far worth the $5.
post #3750 of 4161
Well... too bad I bought Borderlands 2 about a week ago. Oh well, if anyone doesn't have that game, it's definitely worth the ten bucks.
