    Slabba said:The Australian price for The Black Keys Pack 02 for Rock Band 3 is $3.63 for Gold members, but only $3.27 for Silver members...Well spotted. Gold price is $3.63 in New Zealand dollars, it should be $2.72 AUD.

    Ozzy Osbourne 8 Pack is the same, $8.91 NZD for Gold and $8.07 AUD for silver. Should be $6.72 AUD for Gold.

    Does nobody at Microsoft check these things? Then again the last time I spoke to Microsoft they believed that New Zealand was an island of Australia.

    It does highlight how much more we pay for games in New Zealand than Australia (or anywhere else in the world), even though $1.00 AUD = $1.02 NZD.

    There is no more space to cleap up, because its only XBLA games, DLC, patches etc. left.
    I have bought over 290 Retail games on 360 too, so its a big chunk of GB only for patches.
    Get a couple of 32gb USB flash drives. You can move a bunch of your stuff off of the harddrive and store it on the sticks. It's easier than getting a bigger hard drive. I've got like six of the bastards so far and they're all full. >.<

    Not an XBL sale, but if anyone wants to start the beast that is Project Spark, Beat Buy has the starter pack 50% off at $20. If you have GCU, it's $16. Great way to get going, but good luck on the completion.

    I sense the remaining Serious Sam Arcade titles will get de-listed shortly after this sale.

    If you didn't know, Serious Sam: The First Encounter has been de-listed off the marketplace.

    Luckily I got all of them and you can get all of these games on disk if need be.

    Did you know get 28.6GB of usable storage on a 32GB flash drive, but you get the full 32GB on a 64GB drive? Not worth the extra cost unless you are going to use the USB drive with a PC (as I do).

    Your other option is to add a 32GB USB drive, and get an additional 500GB drive. You can then move stuff that you don't use very often onto the 500GB.

    I managed to fill three Xbox 360s (2x 320GB + 1x 250GB) so I spent Easter deleting all the games I had 3 copies of, and now I have 250GB of free space again :) That should see me through to the end of the year and then I will need one of those 500GB bad boys.

    My first PC had a 120MB hard drive. Over the course of a year I added 3x 330MB drives (for just over 1GB of total storage) filled with games. Before that all my games were stored on a collection of 90 minute tapes. Some things change, and some things stay the same ;)

    Some nice deals there but way too many season passes nowadays for my liking. What next? A season pass for Tetris? I wouldn't put it past them.

    There's a rumor that Microsoft will soon support 128GB USB sticks on the 360. I'll believe it when I see, but it sure would be nice if it was true.
  • Posted on 08 April 15 at 22:50Permalink
    Is there any more FC4 DLC scheduled?

    I'm not interested in anything but the achievement-filled Yeti one, so I'm thinking that season pass would not be worth it for me.

    Some pretty good sales here. Would definitely recommend most of the SNK fighters. I say most because I wouldn't recommend Samurai Shodown SEN to anybody.

    That's a lot of stuff on sale....and I am getting none of it. But still, that's a lot of stuff on sale.

    Is Rayman Origins exactly the same as the Origins part of Rayman Legends? If so I'm quite tempted, as I found it quite easy yet would enjoy doing it again.

    I didn't look at the Ozzy Osbourne pack. I just checked it and it is AUD$8.91 for Gold members and AUD$8.07 for Silver members. They are pretty hopeless! And of course if you go to purchase it, it wants to charge you the higher price. Yeah there's something wrong with the exchange rates and the price of games in our region, someone's making a lot of money out of it.

    It's not often the German price is different to the Europe price. It is more common to find the Canada price doesn't match the US price, but thats more understandable as it is a different currency.

    Anyway, for you lucky, lucky German and Canadian readers you can check all the sale prices in the Sales Hub.
