This has been standard practice for years for Gold members.
No--until just recently every
DD sale price was available to everyone
. Now, some are only available to Gold members. For instance, as I write this, Injustice: Gods Among Us
is on a 50% sale for Gold members only. The price on the "Buy Game" button at the top of the page is the normal one; if you go down to the game underneath the screenshots and overview pane, there is a "Gold Exclusive Price" displayed in gold letters above the normal price. In contrast, the Borderlands 2
DD is on sale to everyone for 65% off it's normal $20 price; the only price listed on its page is the sale price.
All "This Week’s Xbox Live Store Deals" are now marked, "Xbox 360 Deals of the Week are for Xbox Live Gold members". AFAICT, the first time that happened was 25 February this year. I buy almost all of my games for the past few years as DDs on sale; I noticed the change.
