Halo Reach DLC? Im Sold!

Some great deals there, pity I have them all except the useless car packs in Forza.

Alan Wake DLC I would say is the best content and deal there on that whole list.

Some really nice discounts in there. Wish I still had Fable III but I traded it in. Same with Alan Wake...

I'd been holding off on the Defiant Maps because I wanted to have enough points for Street Fighter 3 when it came out but now I can do both.

Might as well grab that Halo map pack. That's the only thing I want here that I don't already have...

I was hoping for some XBLA games. :(

Gears 2 all fronts collection for 400MSP is a great bargain, especially as if I remember correctly it was 1600MSP when first came out.

Worth a pop if haven't already!

On topic, I've just invested in Fable III and Kinect Sports. I have the rest, apart from Forza 3 and Halo Wars, which I don't intend to ever play.

Hello Fable III Traitors Keep. Might even get the Understone Pack while I'm at it too since it's only 200 points.
Posted on 26 July 11 at 13:10
Halo Wars, Gears Of War 2, Halo 3 cheap as will buy for sure
