If that wasn’t enough, Modern Warfare 2 has been sliced down to $19.99, and both Stimulus and Resurgence packs are at 600 MSP. Oh wait, I forgot there was more. Black Ops can be purchased for $39.99, and all four map packs can be bought for – you’ve guessed it – 600 MSP. Other titles like Transformers: WFC, Prototype, Prototype 2, Apache: Air Assault, Arkadian, and Carcassonna have all taken price cuts. You can find the rest of these amazing deals on your Xbox Dashboard, so be quick as these deals only last until October 8th!

Hopefully these deals will satisfy your hunger for a couple weeks. If not you can always express your complaints in the comments below, and we can direct the message. I would like to personally thank everyone for tuning in again for another chapter of Xbox Live News with Pipper. Remember to take an hour break from your MMORPG to give some love to your console games, and always remember to “Play Hard or Don’t Play At All!”

Love video games enough to go to school for it!
