Second half of Countdown to 2014 Xbox 360 game download sale begins

Grand Theft Auto V is one of the games that is now on sale as part of the Countdown to 2014 event.

Last week, Microsoft started the first half of its Countdown to 2014 Xbox 360 game download sale, with big price reductions on a number of titles, along with daily flash deals. Now the second half of the sale has begun, with a new list of games that will have their prices cut down by as much as 75 percent from now until December 31st.

Would you really buy GTA 5 on digital download? I thought it suffered from crippling pop up issues if the entire game was on hard drive? The ps3 digital version suffered the same issues. However on PS3 you could at least rectify it by installing an ssd.

Yes, but on the Xbox 360 you can install it partly on a USB stick to completely resolve those issues, which you can't on the PS3.

Can you install parts of the game in different places if you go digital download? Isn't it a single download? Not parts? I never did digital downloads on the 360 because they took ages to hit the download store and were always more expensive than the physical copy.

On the PS3 yes it's one file, but not on the Xbox 360. There you install the image of the physical play disc and download the parts from the install disc from within the game and can thus redistribute them over different drives solving the pop up issues.

Some good deals for once, but typically they still try to rip-off non-Americans. Apparently $4.99 translates across the pond to £4.99.
