And still no sale on the Scene It DLC. I wonder how many Academy Awards are going to have to come and go before something is done about that.

I just hope X-Men Arcade and the Marvel PFX2 tables go on sale when the X-Men or any other Marvel movies release this summer.

Was that region specific? I went to look for it and, at least on the website, it said it was 200 msp so I didn't get it...

I've never been a fan of TMNT specifically, but assuming these are just cuts in price, a know a certain silver account who might want these XD and to be fair, 200msp is a bargain even I might buy.
Can't anybody help me with Bubble Bobble Neo? :/

The deals are available in all regions, as I said above. I have fixed the sentence to reflect the fact that the deals are advertised in Canada though.

I'm guessing it was setup wrong. A member told me in chat so i downloaded them before the mistake was corrected.

Thanks for putting this up, Prince of Persia was updated today, so I'm curious if this is the final list.

Just some of my thoughts here.

I loved Turtles in time Reshelled, but I can see how some people might not, so try out the demo first. Before you jump into TMNT 1989 Arcade because you loved it as a kid, keep in mind that some of the achievements can be quite difficult to get and the game doesn't quite hold the same excitement when you're not playing it in your local arcade. Definitely take up VitaminG311 's offer for help, he got me through that game with just me and him when previous sessions of 4 people couldn't even reach Shredder.

I'm looking for input on Star Trek - do I have to be a Star Trek nerd to appreciate it? Literally I've seen one episode and the newly released movie...

K cool. Although When I go to the promotion on my dashboard, only the following are under the Discount Rewards section:
- TMNT: Turtles In Time Re-Shelled
- Star Trek: D·A·C
- Dual Lightsaber
- Blue Anon Costume and Light Cycle

TMNT1989 isnt listed anywhere, however when I did go find it in the marketplace is was listed as 200MSP.
Prince Of Persia Classic was listed but under "Action Packed Adventures" and when clicked brang me to a listing for the original POP for 360 download for 19.99, however I did find the arcade one on the marketplace listed as 400MSP.

Other things that are under the many screens of this Movie Madness include(not sure if any of these are on sale):
-Many titles available for Games on Demand
- Doom 2 for 800, Tron Arcade for 400, XMEN Arcade for 800, Scott Pilgrim for 800 Lara Croft GoL,
- The Muppets Avatar Collection
Currently playing Halo:Reach, Fallout New Vegas, Battlefield: BC 2 and Red Dead Redemption

Nothing here is on sale as far as I can see. I'm pretty sure that they're just plugging it a bit more in the hope that people don't notice and buy at full price (well how cynical of me wink).
