I thought that all these would be available for the whole period, plus a surprise daily deal.

I hope so as there's nothing there that interests me.

I think you're right there mate.

There will be surprise daily deals as well. 3 each day (an XBLA game or piece of DLC, a Zune movie, and an avatar item) from the 21st to the 31st inclusive.

OXM have posted some clues as to what some of the deals will be: -

Game Add-ons: -

Are you afraid of the dark?
Fly to the rescue in outer space
Keep your hat on and don't stop shooting
Turn up the volume to get down

Movies: -

Act your age, whatever that is.
Become a hero, that's not so super...
It's lonely, being the last person on Earth.

XBLA: -

Turn out the lights for this delight!
What a way to start the week!
Work with Elvis in this classic!

Nothing there particularly catches my interest. I really regret not purchasing Secret of Monkey Island 2 when it was 400MSP :(.

Or could that be one of the Alan Wake DLCs? I'm still waiting for The Writer to come on offer.

Could be, I really need to get that game!

I'm hoping that 'Turn out the lights for this delight' is Limbo as I'd snap it up!
I was thinking the same for that clue, could well be Limbo.

As for Alan Wake, most people I speak to seemed to either dislike or hate it, personally I loved it and was a great throwback to how I used to love surival horrors(hugely atmospheric and immersive), one of the games of the year for me and much preferred it to the likes of the hugely popular Dead Space.

I don't know anybody who's played it, but it seems more my game than any of my friends. Will pick it up when I've cleared my game backlog!

Just tried Super Meat Boy and actually found it pretty fun so it could be a possible holiday purchase, although I'm not sure I'd want to play 340 odd levels of it!

Super Meat Boy is brilliant - I (any many others I'm sure!) can highly recommend it.

Super Meat Boy is a must-buy for anyone who missed it first time around.

Carcassonne is pretty good and my wife's favourite XBLA game.

I'm thinking about Comic Jumper but not sure...

I might have to get Super Meat Boy just for the comedy value of watching the wife play it! The language coming out of her mouth...!

These deals are live now, although I expected there to be an entry in the Spotlight showing all the sale items.

Fortunately DJSigma has listed them!

TreasOn on hotukdeals has posted that Red Dead Redemption dlc is all discounted too (could be the reference to 'Keep your hat on and don't stop shooting?):

Liars & Cheats Normal Price:800 Discounted Price: 400 Savings: 50%
Legends & Killers Pack Normal Price: 800 Discounted Price: 400 Savings: 50%
Undead Nightmare Normal Price: 800 Discounted Price: 600 Savings: 25%
Undead Nightmare Collection Normal Price: 1600 Discounted Price: 1200 Savings: 25%

I don't have the game anymore, but I'm tempted with the Undead Nightmare collection for 1200 points for when I buy it back - any thoughts?

Edit: Just seen them confirmed on Major Nelson.

Tomorrow's one day deal has the following clue from Major Nelson:

'The character in this game holds two Guinness World Records'

Any ideas? Someone has mentioned Tomb Raider - might be tempted if it's the Tomb Raider arcade game!

It is Lara Croft

"The number of models prompted Guinness World Records to award the character an official record for the "most official real life stand-ins" in 2008."

The other record is for sales I think, could be wrong though.

There's a countdown to 2011 entry showing now.

Hopefully Limbo and Guardian of Light will be on the one day deals as I want both of them!

Hi

if i buy the disk version of this game (undead nightmare), does this have all the DLC available for red dead - i presume that is what the collection is here?

also, if i install the main game, and then install the disk version of the game does it merge the 2 so its the same as having the digital copy (and i can play without the undead disk), or does it keep them as 2 separate games?

cheers

Sega said on their facebook page they had something major planned. So the Sonic titles are correct in bing there.
