Matrarch - I'm grateful that the Gears Xbox One Bundle doesn't include a fancy looking Gears Xbox. That would be trouble for my wallet.

You get to choose the featured discount for one week in July

Last year, Microsoft ran a promotion inviting Gold members to vote for the deal they wanted to see featured in a future Deal of the Week. Apparently Microsoft has decided to run this promotion again as a new DotW vote has hit the Xbox Dashboard.

Curious as to what you can vote for? Well, here's the list:

-Mass Effect 2: 50% off select game add-ons

-Battlefield: Bad Company 2: 50% off select game add-ons

-Left 4 Dead 2: 50% off select game add-ons

-Assassin's Creed II: 50% off select game add-ons
There does not seem to be a closing time for this poll, but the deal will run during July, so the vote is likely to end before July starts. As of this moment, Mass Effect 2 is in the lead with 31% of the roughly 90,000 votes cast going for it. If this doesn't sit well with you, log on to Xbox LIVE and cast your vote!

I like this idea but I have all the DLC for ME2 and L4D2 already and I don't own either of the two games.

I have all the DLC for two of the games I own on that list, and I don't think I intend getting Bad Company, so L4D2 will be getting my vote then.

I already have all the ME2 content with achievements, but I'll probably vote for it because the other stuff doesn't interest me and I usually hear people wanting ME2 stuff on sale.

Sense I only have L4D2, I'd have to pick that. That one is probably the least likely to win though.

I'd like ME2 Stuff on sale - just played it recently after a mate lent it to me (swore I'd never buy if after hating the first). Quite enjoyed it, and wouldn't mind having an excuse to start another play through to finish off the rest of the achievements I missed.

I hope it's ME2 just cause I recently started it and have none of the DLC yet. Of course, even if it wins, it's a crap shoot as to whether I could afford it when it goes on sale.

I need Arrival for ME2 or The Sacrifice for L4D2, so either of them is a winner for me.

I will vote for Assassin's Creed 2 since I have everything for Mass Effect 2 and I don't have the other 2 games...

I really hope the ME2 DLC wins out. I only have the Lair of the Shadow Broker one, so I need the others. If ME2 does win it will be good timing for me since I will be finally starting the game in the near future once I get most of the achievements for the first game.

Mass Effect 2 is likely the best bet. ME2 has: Alternate Appearance packs, the Cerberus Network (which has loads of other stuff) Overlord, Kasumi, Shadow Broker and Arrival. BFBC2's only REAL good DLC is the Vietnam add on. L4D2 has The Passing and The Sacrifice (this deal would be better if Valve would just hurry up and release Cold Stream) and AC2 has Sequence 12 and 13, which while they are good story-wise, have no achievements at all and don't give you anything new to do. And while Vietnam would be slashed from 1200 to 600 points, all the ME2 DLC is the best bet because there's so much of it.

I just want everybody to know that it says 'SELECT' dlc, so it is most likely going to be the old dlc packs that people already have.

I've only got two achievements left in the first, but really can't bring myself to get them. I bought LotSB when it was last on sale, but I could definitely use the remaining DLC. I loved the first game - I really couldn't put it down...that's why I'm so hesitant to start the second one wink


Edit: Removed that awful run-on...

Just finished all the dlc for ME2 yesterday. Guess I'll vote for BC2 or LFD2, still have a long way to go there.
We both said a lot of things you are going to regret.
