    Just an update: Bionic Commando is no longer a part of the sale. Also, it's Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands that's included, not the 2008 cel-shaded title.

    they need to do a better job at make the games on demand prices reflect the actual demand for them. no one wants to pay $20 for an old B-rank game. The sale prices should be their list price... same goes for all of the old content on XBL. they really need a better system/policy for price reductions

    I find it kinda funny that the only games I'm really interested in are Prince of Persia and Sega Superstars Tennis are $5 and $2 ($3 if you get the double-pack with XBLA Compilation) at Gamestop. Also, who the HELL would buy Bomberman Act: Zero for $20?

    it's pretty amazing that, in what is essentially a p.s.a. about a company offering rather sizable discounts on consumer goods, people will find something to whine about in the comments. yay internet.

    Think pepole if they are selling a disk for 5 dollars and a direct download for the Xbox 360 for 5 dollars this is why I would take the Download Every Time. 1. $5 Disk is probably old used and abused there could be scratches that you cant see with your eyes on the disk that it minimum will cause annoying glitches and bugs and at maximum will cause you to have to get another new copy and who wants to waste their time doing that? 2. Once a game is downloaded to your Xbox you never need to go looking for the disk again you can just open your games list from the guide menu (that you can open from anywhere) and semlesly drop into the game. 3. Accidents happen, even if you never break your disk it could get lost, stolen or even lazer-burned and then once again you have to get a new one. With a downloaded title as long as its on your hard-drive OR you have access to Xbox live you can always play your game. 4. Like I mentioned earlier you dont have to go to the store you can get the game without ever getting up. 5. Even if they drop the Xbox 360s live services (they wont hell if you know anything you know that they still support the Original Xboxes servers from what over 8 frikken years ago! I'm talking to you Metroid) You dont need to work you can still play the game straight from your hard drive without access to live same as before. 6. Same price, gas is expensive cheaper to get online. P.S. None of these titles look interesting to me personally but I already have Dark Void I recommend it its an extremely fun game.

    PoP, Dark Void, and Bionic Commando will become part of my Xbox library next week.
  • Slider64 - June 15, 2012 10:53 p.m.

    All those games are worth $5, Dark Void can be frustrating at times but flying a jet pack in such giant open areas can be really fun. Let me recommend, Point the camera towards the ground then press the launch button and you will do a fast take-off directly into the ground...after you see that...your welcome
  • Redeater - June 15, 2012 3:57 p.m.

    So.....every game you can get at Gamestop or your local flea market for about the same price minus the physical copy. This is an awful list.
  • Gazanator101 - June 15, 2012 1:59 p.m.

    Does this apply only to US residents. Wouldn't mind this kind of sale here in the UK, would pick up Kameo, Rockstar Tennis, Blazing Angels most probably.
  • jackthemenace - June 15, 2012 3:12 p.m.

    Bugger, I hadn't thought of that. Hopefully, it extends to the UK too, because I'd quite like to be able to play Prince of Persia. Then again, I can probably buy it cheaper here in a second-hand game shop anyway.
  • Kipper - June 15, 2012 4:46 p.m.

    PoP 2008 was one of my first games and biggest disappointments. Gorgeous art design, platforming is fine, but the combact is utterly infuriating and frustrating. I eventually gave up on it about half way through.
  • Turtman - June 15, 2012 1:51 p.m.

    Trying to copy PlayStation Plus with ACTUAL sales, and failing miserably.
  • samsneeze - June 15, 2012 2:48 p.m.

    Except, Xbox has always had sales for various things. If you don't like Microsoft or whatever fine, but don't go about being mad at it for no reason.
  • Turtman - June 15, 2012 5 p.m.

    You gotta pay for sales on XBL, PSPlus gives you free games. No mad, cuz I dont has xbawks. U mad bro?
  • michaelparkhurst - June 15, 2012 6:16 p.m.

    Isn't Playstation network free? then technically you are paying for those free games when you are part of PSplus and Xbox is always having sales on their games. I'll be happily adding to my Xbox collection next week.
  • samsneeze - June 16, 2012 2:27 p.m.

    Actually, Silver members on Xbox Live have access to the same sales and they also get party chat which is pretty neat. They can't use the Xbox as a second media source (Netflix, Youtube, etc.) and they can't play games online. That's about it.
  • kenjionigod - June 17, 2012 2:08 p.m.

    Actually... That's not true. Party chat, like online gaming and most other features are Gold only. Also, they don't always get the same deals. Most of the time in fact, they don't get the deals at all. They also don't get dlc and demos when they come out, they have to wait. All of those things, outside of party chat you can do on he PS3 for free. The point he was trying to make is with PSN unlike XBL, you nice things. Themes, games, DLC for free. You have to pay nothing extra. For a lot of the "deals" you get on XBL, none of which include free games mind you, you have to pay for your Gold subscription. And before everyone cries out "Fanboy" I own a 360. And I do pay for Gold, doesn't mean I'm completely blind to things however.
  • samsneeze - June 17, 2012 4:12 p.m.

    Demos, yeah you have to wait like a week or so, but DLC is able to be purchased at the same time as Gold Members. My mistake, voice chat is available, not party chat. And most sales on XBL are available to everyone and only a few are exclusive to Gold members. It works the same way Playstation Plus does. And like someone already said, you don't get games free with Plus since you're paying for the plus service which in turn pays for the games. I think the biggest plus though is that with Gold I don't have to worry about really shoddy online due to crappy servers like I did with the brick in my closet.
  • avantguardian - June 15, 2012 9:08 p.m.

    yes, because playstation plus isn't totally a copy of xbox live. just like playstation move isn't a copy of the wii. and the sony smash bros rip-off totally isn't a smash bros rip-off. more importantly, as samsneeze said, this isn't really anything new. shit man, i can smell your greasy sony fanboyism over the internet.
