As with all gaming related dates, these are subject to change.

Thoughts:

  • Avatar Clothes as Deal of the week: Some people may see this as a good chance to pick up avatar clothes, but I see it as a week without a cheap game that could actually give me some enjoyment.
  • Call of Duty: WaW: Map Pack Bundle : If you are still playing Call of Duty: WaW and don’t have the Zombie filled map packs, now would be the best time to pick them up for 400MSP off. Ideally I would have liked to see the price dropped down to 1200MSP, but we can’t get everything in life.
  • More Movies: For those of you with the Zune video marketplace on your Xbox, you can now watch many more movies. I’d suggest Xmen Origins: Wolverine if you haven’t already seen it.

So what are your opinions on this schedule? Also, here is a quick question: how many of you have payed for a movie from the Zune Marketplace?

    I agree about the avatar clothes…and there hasn’t been a DoTW for me since I picked up Marvel vs Capcom 2 (and even that was during the Holiday Sale, not really DoTW)

    Thanks for the info. I will pass it on.
