    RE5 is a great bargain at this price. All the achievements are attainable and the game does not have a high PC requirement.

    Gonna get re5 for sure. Just got a new alienware tower and it has played all my existing gfwl titles perfect, so I am anxious to try re5 out on there!

    Might just have to crack and at least get a few of these while the sale is going on. I'm a real sucker for good deals, it's a problem.
    You seem a little furious...

    Saw this DoTW this morning. Been trying to get a friend to buy RE5 PC to play with me ever since.

    Nice sale. I bought Dark Void for £3 new the other week though. Will probably get RE5 and Street Fighter 4 as they are cheaper than new on Amazon!

    I already have Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies for 360 so I don't think there is much point picking that up for achievements, can someone confirm this?

    Now if only M$ would accept my credit card like it used to I could get some RE5. Haven't been able to purchase anything from M$ other than through windows phone in over a month.

    It is a cross-platform title, so the PC and Xbox share the same achievement list.

    All of these are NOT deals, as you can get ALL of them cheaper on disk.

    Don't bother PC version is glitched. You cannot 1000G it.

    Does anyone know if RE5 and Dead Rising 2 can be played using the Xbox controller for PC? I'm not a fan of using a keyboard and mouse for gaming.

    I got SF4 for 3 bucks at the store @christmas. Games on demand is always a bit more expensive.
    That is why I never buy full retail games on XBL/GFWL.

    But if ppl don't get f.e. RE5 for cheaper, grab a (digital) copy :)

    I played RE5 for the PC with my wired Xbox 360 controller. Don't know about Dead Rising 2 though.

    All the GFWL titles will automatically pick up the wired xbox 360 usb controller and auto map the buttons as though you were playing the console.
