Deal of the Week: August 2nd, 2011 [UPDATE]

By Dave Horobin, 5 years ago
Update: Apparently Microsoft has squeezed in one more, under-the-radar Deal of the Week this time around. In addition to changing your Gamertag, you can also download The Fancy Pants Adventures for 400 MSP, which is 50% off its regular price of 800 MSP.

Here's the description of the game from
Run Fast. Run Fancy. The Fancy Pants Adventures is the definitive action-adventure platformer you can play with your friends. Race through dense forests, underwater caverns, and pirate ships in search of your kidnapped sister in this epic adventure. Stomp, kick, and slash your enemies with 40 melee weapons and an arsenal of moves. Battle Pirates, Ninjas, a Giant Penguin and more! When you beat the newest adventure, team up on Xbox LIVE with your friends to find all the bonus levels, challenge each other to Fancy Golf, Time Trials, Trick Arenas, and then battle it out head-to-head in classic King of the Hill tournaments! As an added bonus, play the HD-upgraded versions of the classics, The Fancy Pants Adventures: World 1 and 2, the way they were meant to be played, on console!
If you're interested in taking advantage of this DotW, feel free to download it right here.

Thanks to AntaraelDulacre for the tip.

Original Story:
This week's Deal of the Week, whilst no doubt useful for some, will mainly be a bit of a let down. The only discounted item is a 30% discount on changing your Gamertag.

Gamertag changes usually cost 800 MSP. This week, for Xbox LIVE Gold members, the cost is reduced to 560 MSP.

If this is the deal you have been waiting for, you can follow step by step instructions on how to change your Gamertag here.

If you missed last week's Deal of the Week, is still showing discounted DLC at the time of writing.
