I was unable to find the Borderlands 2 offer on Xbox Live in Norway. The sales through July 8 was available, but not Borderlands 2, Assassin's Creed 3, Far Cry 3 nor Max Payne 3. It's unfortunate that those offers was not available, was it for US only? I purchased Bulletstorm on sales, but I would very much like to buy some of the other offers as well but they was not available in Norway yesterday.

Red Alert 3 for 5 bucks!?!? and to think I paid $60 for it. Oh well, I did get it almost 5 years ago so I definitely got my moneys worth. Besides, had I waited until today to buy it, I would be a noob, getting smoked in multiplayer. I did get some of the DLC I have always wanted for it though. I never wanted to pay 200 MSP for any of the themes but 50 MSP, not a problem

Its funny that for the day of the sale, some of the DLC for Borderlands 2 is actually more expensive than the game itself. I still cant believe that I got Assassins Creed 3 for $15. I almost bought it for $35 at Gamestop the other day. I am definitely glad I waited but the better deal came from an unlikely source. Its definitely not like Microsoft to hook us up like this but I am not complaining one bit

Going to wait for Forza Horizon to appear (as it is on the main list).
It was good but wasn't a day 1 purchase for me. Hopefully it will have a nice discount on it.

Borderlands, definitely. I still have a bunch of kick ass weapons bu have not played it in a while. May load it back up and get the latest DLC. Bulletstorm, ehh. Was ok but if I had to do it over, I would save my money.

Actually, yes some are. I can confirm that the DLC for Red Alert 3 is 75% off. I got the DLC map pack for 100 MSP and each of the girls themes for 50 MSP each. I dont believe that any of the newer games involved in the one day sales have discounted DLC but most of the ones on this list should have discounted DLC as well.

Sweet! Im getting Crysis and Mass Effect as GameStop trying to sell those for like $10-20!!! I always wanted to try out mass effect from the start (I'm weird like that) before checking out any of the new ones. Lol. Now I get to use up those points I before they "expire".

I played ME2 first, then had to go out and get ME1. I must have played both ME1 and ME2 several times to try out diff story lines and import my characters from 1 to 2. Fun games.
