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.
