    When has a sale ever been for non-gold members? (Besides permanent price reduction)
    DOTW are the only regular Gold exclusive, demoes for retail titles usually have a Gold only week before being publicly available. http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/NGII-Mission-Mode/... was also GOld Exclusive for months before it got a general reduction.

    Anyone know what todays (thursday) daily deal is? I'd like Trials Evolution or the Arkham City Harley Quinns Revenge.
    UFC season pass.
    Wait, there have been daily deals this whole time? Why was this not mentioned before?

    It seems like every day this week, a different season pass is being put up for sale.

    Tuesday was LA Noire. Wednesday was Mortal Kombat. And today it seems to be UFC.

    I did post it, a bit earlier. I also put it in my status, just so I could try and let people know :)

    If anyone needs points, http://www.crazygametime.com/ has their sale going. 4000 points for $39. Works for both US and Canadian accounts. Code is emailed within minutes. I have a Canadian account and had no problem adding these points to my account!
    Anybody else think this seems like a scam? "Due to increased credit card fraud, you must enter your phone numer... Ummm, how does that prevent credit card fraud exactly?
    I've been thru this lots of times, specially with German sellers. Sometimes they phone you and verify you are the one who ordered, then they send you an email with the code at the moment. Other sellers (like Spanish ones) do send the code 5 seconds later they recive the paypal payment straig to your cellphone.

    Dunno about your particular case, but the ones I've given my number so far were trusty sellers wave

    Man, there isn't one person complaining about how all these sales have been done before and no one wants them. This feels un-natural.
    Because a lot of these are new sales, and there is something on this list for everyone. It's finally a truly great, well-rounded sale. toast

    Everyone should be happy with this one. I certainly appreciate all the deals, even if I bought some of these are higher prices prior to this sale. clapsmile
    There's something that's been debated (and complained) a lot of; poor DOTW making GOLD SUBSCRIPTION not worthy at this rate of "bland deals" (if you happen to be no fan of COD, BF Halo, GOW or FIFA).

    And there is a pointto it; DOTW may be good, but what's trully spot-on is the back to school sale wich is avaliable for both gold and silvers.

    I'm quite satisfied with both the DOTW and BTS sales and won't ever complain but can understand people feeling unease as the "exclusive sales for premium customers" are just 5 titles and two of those have been already discounted.

    Just saying.

    BTW already got WARP (highly recomended) and considering getting 3 to 4 more titles.

    Does anyone with Forza 4 VIP know if the Porsche pack is priced at 400 MS on the in-game marketplace? Or is it the normal VIP discount at the usual 1200 MS points (no price change to reflect MS's 50% discount)?

    I may just cave and buy the VIP membership if I can get the Porsche pack for 400.

    I don't think I've seen one person complain about that. Just re-used saled / less and less price. I mean they save $10 a month not going gold, so I'd tell them to shut up about not being able to save $2 every few months.

    It's only $5 a month to go Gold. So now that I think of it, you only have to save 400MSP a month on DotW for Gold to be "worth it" (this is of course ignoring all the other benefits of Gold like online multiplayer, party chat, premium apps, etc.)

    Back to school applies to college students as well. My university classes started up with the new semester recently and any kind of boost (like this sale) is more than welcome!
