Deal of the Week: October 25th, 2011 [Update]

By Dave Horobin, 5 years ago
Update: Reader AntaraelDulacre informed us that, as the Dead Rising games are not available on the German Marketplace, a substitute game has been made this week's DotW. For this week, German gamers can pick up Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax for 400 MSP instead of the typical 800 MSP.

Original Story:
Prepare to do battle against endless waves of Zombie enemies, with some of the most imaginative weapons ever seen in a video game, as this week's Deal of the Week brings us three discounted Marketplace items, all from the Dead Rising franchise.

Games on Demand:
Dead Rising - $19.99 / £19.99 $14.99 / £14.99

XBLA:
Dead Rising 2: Case West - 800 MSP 400 MSP
Dead Rising 2: Case Zero - 400 MSP 200 MSP

I'm sure you know the score by now, Deal of the Week is only available to Xbox LIVE Gold memberS.

This is awesome...I'm a DR nut, so these are already obtained.

Just need to do 7 Day Survivor and finish Co-Op on DR2 with DIMEBOY.
Job & A Social Life, achievements most gamers refuse to earn...therefore, their ratios are high.

Since none of the DR games are available in Germany, Germany seems to have gotten a different Deal of the Week with HALF-MINUTE HERO available at 400 MSP

I got both these games for the same price they're on sale for almost a year ago. Well not CaseZero ( 5 months back).
Point is, these deals keep sucking angry

I mean, come on Microsoft, why don't you do something for your customers for once! Like put stuff on sale when they don't have to in the first place?
/sarcasm

In other news, I'll most likely pick up DR: Case Zero. Can't really go wrong for 200MSP, and I'm not picking up anything in the Rock Band marketplace this week. It'll be my music music
