Sales & Specials+: Week of July 10th, 2012

By Ashley Woodcock, 6 years ago
With the Sales & Specials+ App comes new deals and discounts that are more than worthy of becoming a concrete weekly post. Unfortunately, these offers are currently limited to residents of the UK and the US.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this new app, it is basically an extension to the normal Specials & Sales that you can find on your dashboard. The plus version of the Sales & Specials showcases the current Deals of the Week, and also contains two new features that include discounted games or items. The Scratch & Match game is basically what it says it is. You scratch the image and unveil nine images, match three together in a line and you could win yourself a prize! Players can only play once a day and the prizes will change every week. The other feature is the Chain Reaction which is not a mini-game like Scratch & Match. Chain Reaction contains four discounted items in which the first item must be purchased in order to be able to buy the second and so on.

The Sales & Specials+ App is free and can be downloaded from the Sales & Specials tab on the dashboard.

This week sees the discounts on two XBLA titles, an Avatar prop and price-cuts on various pieces of DLC from Gears of War 3.

Scratch & Match - 800 MSP 400 MSP - 800 MSP 400 MSP
Homerun Animation (Avatar Item) - 200 MSP 160 MSP

Chain Reaction

Putting, and 'Chain Reaction' together just feels so right. Picture something Locust, explosive, headless and gnasher related, and you'd have to agree... so long as it's a nice kill-streak your picturing.

Starting with the first DLC in order to the fourth and final DLC:

Kyrll Shield (Avatar Item) - 400 MSP 320 MSP
Horde Command Pack for Gears of War 3 - 800 MSP 640 MSP
RAAM's Shadow for Gears of War 3 - 1200 MSP 960 MSP
Lancer Skins Launch Collection - 1200 MSP 600 MSP

It's currently unknown as to how long the Chain Reaction offer will remain as Gears of War 3 items as it has currently been longer than a week already.

The offers on the Sales & Specials+ are available for Gold and Silver members!
