Xbox is pumping out the discord deals again, but perhaps this week we can see a light shining through the dark tunnel of “Deals of the Week”. With the Pipper growing impatient about the weekly deals, it is safe to acknowledge that others have simply given up on Xbox to provide deals to satisfy their gaming thirst. What’s driving the Poid Pipper crazy this week?
Deals Of The Week
The first set of deals this week are gold exclusive. This means you are only able to purchase the deals by first acquiring a gold account. If you had wish to purchase the packs for Amalur, Bejeweled 3, or Saints Row: The Third, you will need to resubmit your gold status.
