    RE4 and RE:CV X would be a nice reduction. I'd buy them if they were 1200 MSP instead of 1840. Or they could finally put The Sacrifice DLC on sale for Left 4 Dead 2. Since it's been out for a long time and has yet to be discounted.

    I LOVE how Microsoft and game developers will continue to sell games and DLC for products they no longer support or fix. To me it is blatantly greedy to offer "deals" on game titles and DLC for these titles that have broken, and unachievable achievements.
    It would be like a retail store continuing to sell a product that has been recalled.
    It may be my opinion but I feel that if you want my money you should have the decency to fix problems and glitches within your game or at least have the decency to not continually try to sell it to me with a grand marketing/ advertising schemes, (like DotW), when you have no intention of ever addressing the problems that are still associated with it.

    I.e. Point and click week:
    Both Sam & Max games down to 400 each, instead of 1600 each (seriously, WTF were they thinking putting both at that price???)
    Interpol = 400MSP.
    Puzzle Arcade = 400 MSP.
    All Puzzle Quests = 400-600MSP...

    Come on Microsoft... do something USEFUL for once. Those Sam & Max games HAVE NEVER BEEN DISCOUNTED.
    Why do you want Interpol? It not good, even in the loosest sense of the word "good"

    Am I having an odd sense of deja vu or did we just see an extremely similar DotW very recently?

    **cough**Deal of the Week: February 21st, 2011 **cough**
    That's over 60 weeks ago bro. If you consider that recently, then I need to make sure I buy things from you so I can return them later for a refund.
    Pardon me, do you have any Grey Poupon?

    *sigh* Maybe 50% off of all Mass Effect DLCs. Maybe Valve DLC (L4D 1 and 2)........... They need to stop having deals for games that came out 3 years ago... o____o

    Surely the whole point of DotW is for Microsoft to moneygrab..?

    While i personally don't like this DoTW i can see it's quite good for fans of clancy games. So people need to stop asking for every game on the marketplace to be discounted. Old games/add-ons will be discounted, if you expect them to mark down the price of anything less than 2 years old you're delusional.

    And yes i do expect a long list of ''new' games to be listed for me that have had price cuts. :P

    The Splinter Cell Deniable Ops DLC seems like a good deal, but I won't be able to get the achievements on my own so not much point in me buying it :(
    You do NOT need to play co-op to gain those achievements, they are all mislabeled. You can get them in single player (I can personally attest to that).

    There we go again, another shooter/war/firstperson game list. How original, it's nothing else than mass effect call of duty hardcore shooting kill warzone crap, when are they gonna throw some other genre in there?
    Achievements should be about skill, not luck!

    They did an 'Anime' game special where it had a different variety of XBLA games, including Metal Slug (A game people have been wanting as DOTW forever.) and King of Fighters games.

    Last week Cave had deals on Shoot Em Ups and Nin-Jump2, which is an easy 200G, and it was only 200MSP.

    Technically, some of you guys cry because you guys don't want to spend the extra points for that 'easy' XBLA game or want DLC price deductions for that game that has DLC but flopped. The deals should be the sake of convenience, they don't HAVE to be there, they do it so us people who pay for membership can get a privilege in getting some discounts. Plus, it's a week, maybe they'll have something for you next time. Aren't half of us backlogged as hell on games? Why would we want MORE games to keep in the HDD?

    they're worth $20... you get 5 games per pack, that's $4 per game.
