Xbox Live News with Pipper – July 8, 2012

News Xbox 360 Microsoft Deals D3 Publisher Bethesda

Heatwave is perhaps a common term used in the past weeks in the States. Air conditioners have been cranked to the max, so gamers like me can enjoy some iced tea that won’t melt on contact. While my fists are raised to those with central air, my heart goes out to all that do not have any sort of cooling unit. The Poid Pipper is here to present new deals and releases that just might make your summer even hotter.
