XBL Sale Roundup: December 17th, 2013

    MvC3 dlc for me, glad I waited.

    Was hoping 400 days would go on sale sometime before the release of Season 2.

    Last years countdown sale was terrible. Saints Row 2 dlc & Black Ops 2 dlc on my wishlist.

    Does anyone know if you can use a controller for the Arcade Kinect titles listed?

    Picked up Borderlands 2 with the last of my money on a hungarian account. Figure I'll play the main game for a bit, by which time hopefully the Season Pass will get a better discount.

    Also picked up Castle of Illusion, been looking forward to a discount on that..

    Please let us know when the good sales begin, the games that have NEVER been on sale EVER....arcade games, not retails, I can pick up retail games for cheaper than any of these listed.

    I'm really hoping Mass Effect gets a spot on the daily deals. Been wanting that DLC forever.
    I need it too, that and the damn Tomb Raider Legend dlc. If I can get those during the countdown I will have every dlc for every game I own and be a very happy man.

    I paid full price for all the Walking Dead but still have no regrets not waiting, a great game! Note: Freefall Racers is Kinect required! I went to download it for less than a buck until I realised I wouldn't even be able to play it. Shame, dead easy completion though...

    For famous, good games with a lot of dlc it is better to wait for an GOTY/ULTIMATE/COMPLETE etc. edition of the game with all the dlc included (or at the very least, all the dlc with achievements). In your case, Tomb Raider will have such an edition next year with all the dlc included for the xbox 360 (and under a different name for the xbox one).

    If you buy ultimate vault hunter 2 before 1, will it work?

    I'm pretty sure Castle of Illusion and Marlow Briggs have never been on sale before. I get tired of repeat sales too, but I appreciate that Microsoft usually tries to throw in at least one or two new games among the repeaters - even if they aren't something on my personal radar.

    I'm not going to put this off any longer. At just over £1 an episode it would seem a waste not to play it and see what the hype is about.

    I can't feel but to be screwed over with the walking dead considering I paid full price when they 1st came out.
    knowing they did this I will wait for season 2 to be on sale

    Nothing for me, anything I would buy I already have.

    Reread his post. He said Tomb Raider Legend not Tomb Raider 2013.

    dumb question: I got Jill and Shlub-Whatever free when I bent over a barrel for the MvC3 CE - would I need to re-buy UMvC3 versions or is the dlc shared? Think I'm going to cave on the digital version while the gettin's good...

    For God's sake, if you don't already own The Walking Dead, Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands 2, download them.

    Download them NNAAOOOOWWW!!!
