    Thinking about picking up Prototype, but with my huge backlog, what's the point, I would probably not play it in years...

    It always amazes me how expensive the old CoD games continue to be.

    Would £7.49 be worth it for cod2? I'm not really into cod games but I would like to try one and it seems to be a relatively easy 1000g. Would it be cheaper to find on disc?

    I got it on release day and it is still one of the best digital games on xbox one.

    If you are a fan of RPG's and you dont have this yet... what are you waiting for?
    So much this. I paid full price for it and I don't regret it one bit. Fantastic game. Get it now.
    I wouldn't say one of the best but it is good, i got the collectors edition for ps3 though

But it also better in my opinion.I agree completely with Shinnizle's assessment. The first Prototype is much harder to complete than the second. Enemies are much tougher than in the sequel, and some boss fights can be quite challenging on hard. Getting platinum's on the challenges will require practice and dedication. and on top of it all there are collectibles to find. Despite this I still found the first to be the more enjoyable of the two.

    It's turn-based. I cannot stand turn-based games.

    Fully loaded, safety off. This here is a recipe for unpleasantness.

    These are more likely to be permanent price drops as they aren't being advertised as a sale anywhere that I can find. Unless you can see a listing somewhere?
    I always check here:
    http://xbldb.com/offer-history/price-changes/price-decreases

    They may very well be permanent price drops.
    Any info on when?

    The prices have been reduced already. The question is whether these are permanent price reductions or an unannounced sale with an end date. Unfortunately, without someone promoting the sale officially or waiting a week to see what happens, we won't know which it is.
