This week's DotW sees three great half-price offers on three movie-related Marketplace items. First up is the XBLA game http://www.trueachievements.com/Prince-of-Persia-Arcade....htm, down from 800 to 400 MSP. Xbox.com gives the following description of the game:
Prince of Persia® Classic is a remake of the original 1989 title, often referred to as THE game that kick-started the platforming genre. This new version features updated character designs, animations, visuals, and lighting effects, all transforming the game into a fresh, close to 3-dimensional look. New traps, puzzles, enemies, and achievements add to the excitement. It's time to save the princess from her terrible fate!

Secondly, a similar 50% off the extortionately over-priced Watchmen: The End Is Nigh, down from its ridiculous 1600 to a far more reasonable 800 MSP. Xbox.com gives the following description of the game:
The lines between good and evil have been blurred and crime and terror run rampant in the streets. The alleys, rooftops, and sewers are crawling with criminals and brutal gangs. And now, Underboss—in a daring escape—has broken out of prison and is ruling with vicious darkness. The city is in need of saviors and only masked hero vigilantes answer the call. Answer the call in Watchmen: The End Is Nigh.

And finally, an unsurprising 50% off the Character and Map Pack Plus for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, down from 800 to 400 MSP. Xbox.com gives the following description of the DLC:
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen gets BIGGER with new characters, maps, achievements and Expert mode. Enter battle in single player and multiplayer with 11 new characters from the movie & Generation One series. Three new multiplayer maps take the online battle to new locations. Expert mode makes the single player campaigns more challenging for experienced users – including new leaderboards.

To be chauvinistic for a minute, I feel the need to warn you guys that none of the above feature Gemma Arterton, Malin Akerman or Megan Fox. I do love games, but there are some reasons why films are better. Just sayin'
