The key words are of course "up to". Prepare to be disappointed with a bunch of very non-Steam-like 20% discounts on Games On Demand titles that are already 50% over retail cost. It's too bad too. Games On Demand could easy be a very compelling offering. Microsoft is just too scared of destroying perceived value with discounts. Thankfully, Valve has spent the last five years proving that the exact opposite is true.
heads-up. each day will have different games on sale so they're using the time pressure to push you to buy...
I wanted to let you know that starting February 26, 2013 and running through March 4, 2013, over 60 Xbox 360 Games on Demand titles will be on sale up to 75% off with some as much as 85% off for the “Xbox Ultimate Game Sale”* Each day, a different set of titles will be on sale, so be sure to follow me on Twitter where I’ll announce what that day’s special offer. The Ultimate Game Sale only occurs once a year so you won’t want to miss it
Halo Reach is $10 today. Microsoft gave me that for free three times, but I can see how it's a great value for one that doesn't own it yet. I'd buy ODST at $10, but it's a 2-disc game, therefore not allowed on GOD.

If I were to pick one star of this list, it's El Shaddai. It's a bizarre, Bible-inspired game that didn't see enough attention when it came out. Give it a try! Edited by darklordjames - 2/26/13 at 2:16pm
Dirt 2 gives you a rally racer, which you don't have. Grid is where the nice rewind feature that you see in Forza was stolen from, if memory serves. I'd say Dirt first, then if it doesn't grab you spend the other $5 and pick up Grid.
