    I'm certain that with even minimal effort you can find it cheaper on disc.

    I hope the Battlestations: Pacific DLC is also price dropped in the Games for Windows version.
    Serious question as I don't use GFWL games. Does Games for Windows LIVE even have a Recently Reduced section?
    There are deals on GFWL games through the marketplace but I'm not sure if reductions are ever advertised. (Deal of the Week is though.) Check Steam as well because a few of the games are GFWL enabled and you can get sweet deals there.
    No, GFWL doesn't really a section for... well... anything. You just have to look around, it isn't really advertised at all. I don't generally expect GFWL reductions to be posted here for exactly that reason. It would require Newshounds to look at every single price for GFWL, and noone in their right minds would do that.

    MKLKT - Yes, Steam does usually have good prices (hell, usually great prices) on GFWL games. Unfortunately, as far as I know, Section 8: Prejudice and Fable III are the only GFWL games that sell their DLC on Steam. Otherwise you need to go through Xbox.com, the GFWL client (doesn't work for all Steam GFWL games), and most I believe can purchased through the game.
    Does steam have a section there that shows GFWL only based games? or is it a case of having to check elsewhere and then head onto to steam to look for the prices?

    Sadly there is no way to sort GFWL games on Steam.

    I use this link for an alphabetical list of GFWL games, and usually games pop out that I've seen on Steam. Others I think look interesting, and look around on Steam for them.
    http://www.xbox360achievements.org/games/pc/
    Keep in mind the list doesn't have the cross-platform games (games that have 1 list combined for 360 and PC versions). So games like Lost Planet: Colonies Edition, Shadowrun, and Universe at War will not be on that list.

    cheers.

    Already picked up shadow run when it was cheap last year.. Id be tempted on Batman, but I've no idea how that would run here (not really a PC gamer anymore), & theres nay demos to see if it would run, or stutter along like fallout 3 used to. laugh


    Ill have to have a check & comapre specs & benchmarks for them.

    There are only 7 titles that don't appear on the TA search which are combined achievement lists... those can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Games_for_Windows_%E2%8...

    You would think, but a huge number of people bought the second Gears 3 DLC even after owning the Season Pass, which the DLC says "Don't buy if you have the Season Pass". So sadly... I'm sure a lot of people bought it yesterday at 800.
