Wow, finally getting borderlands 2
logan_izer10  +   826d ago
Haha. Every time Sony does something good, Microsoft shows up and does the same thing... Just worse.
sentury111  +   826d ago
How is this worse? These are all new titles with better than retail prices for most of the titles.

This is more copying Steam with the huge discounts.

And since when did Sony invent sales?
GameCents  +   826d ago | Funny
Back in 1976 when they invented the internet. They also invented freedom of speech and allowing women to vote. All this while making sure the Earth remains on it's axis and putting all the profit they make towards rebuilding the ozone layer. . .literally with cash.

On a related note, beautiful sunset here in Pretoria South Africa. Thank you SONY.

I agree..

Funny thing is i just trash talked about live like 2 min. Ago lol... What was said was from my experiences..

But this is Awesome! Talk about stepping it up..

Ms should still match at least one free game while subscribed and that will be one tough competition..

Next gen is going to be crazy...


Finally ms, some good news is coming out a little more steady.. Bravo.

And i don't care who does it first, just who does it right...

psn sale a while back had borderlands 2 on sale for $19.99 and xblox live has borderlands 2 now on sale for $9.99 that seems to be better to me. even though its one item its still something.
N8  +   826d ago
What he's saying is Microsoft is following the leader again. As they have been doing since the whole DRM thing. They never offer discounts like this and all of a sudden..... That's what he saying
darx  +   826d ago
You gotta love Steam!
N8  +   826d ago
I saw arcade games did I miss something? I must not see anything like battlefield 3, XCOM or something like that. I should have been more specific I mean full retail games. This year even
matrixman92  +   826d ago
They also have weekly discounts
WeAreLegion  +   826d ago
There are some great deals here. Pick up Prey for $2.99 and Borderlands 2/Max Payne 3 for $9.99 each. You will NOT be disappointed.
NihonjinChick  +   826d ago
Can't wait to see how much they charge for BioShock Infinite. That's what I'm waiting for.
Benjammin25  +   826d ago
Not bad. Time Xbox fans started getting something in return for their years of loyality. Even though I'm a Sony man, I hope MS continue this trend and start treating their loyal fanbase like actual people.

LOL Just cancelled my Live account. PC gaming until Christmas. PS4 here I come
creatchee  +   826d ago
Well if you still have your Xbox, these games are on sale for Gold AND Silver members :)
CrossingEden  +   826d ago
then there's no reason for you to be commenting or reading this article -_-
C4BL3  +   826d ago
I'm Sorry. Thought this was a free country. Where a man isn't restricted to come and go as he pleases. won't happen again.
CrossingEden  +   826d ago
freedom of speech is nice, wasting time with the SAME type of comments on EVERY similar article is not
C4BL3  +   826d ago
Okay wasn't sure how that whole thing worked. SO I can say what I want just as long as it isn't the same thing. Thank you so much for helping me understand.
Stryfeno2  +   826d ago
Is Borderlands 2 a good game?...I never played the original.
iamgoatman  +   826d ago
If you like shooters and/or loot based games, then I'd highly recommend it. Lots of replay value and with a great sense of humour.

To understand the story you don't really have to play the first, theres a few reoccurring characters you won't know but it's not really a big deal.

But yeah, for this price. Get it.
Stryfeno2  +   826d ago
rimau  +   825d ago
You could also get the first at a great price somewhere... with it's visual style and humor it's still a nice game to play
Primal Rex  +   826d ago

sentury111  +   826d ago
I know. Why not promote these sales? I've told a few of my friends and they jumped at a few of these deals.

Bad marketing.
sentury111  +   826d ago
Sorry, but don't see the edit button. Usually it's next to the agree or reply, I forget.

There is a big ad now on the front page. In NA, don't know about elsewhere. So a little late, but good job MS.
calidredz  +   826d ago
Why does it say no online for borderlands 2 on live, looks like a dlc trick in waiting. I hope thats a mistake. On second thought I will just wait for steam to copy them, just bought a new 770 and have an overclocked 2600k (4.2 ghz) why waste it.
