There are some genuinely awesome titles in the mix like Rockstar's Table Tennis, Virtua Tennis 2009, and SEGA Superstarts Tennis...OK so it's a lot of tennis, but there are other games too. Like Viva Pinata Party Animals, Perfect Dark Zero, the 2008 Prince of Persia reboot, and the awesomely underrated Bionic Commando. You can find the full list below.

    Just an update: Bionic Commando is no longer a part of the sale. Also, it's Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands that's included, not the 2008 cel-shaded title.

    they need to do a better job at make the games on demand prices reflect the actual demand for them. no one wants to pay $20 for an old B-rank game. The sale prices should be their list price... same goes for all of the old content on XBL. they really need a better system/policy for price reductions
  • gumbyx84 - June 17, 2012 6:46 a.m.

    I find it kinda funny that the only games I'm really interested in are Prince of Persia and Sega Superstars Tennis are $5 and $2 ($3 if you get the double-pack with XBLA Compilation) at Gamestop. Also, who the HELL would buy Bomberman Act: Zero for $20?

    it's pretty amazing that, in what is essentially a p.s.a. about a company offering rather sizable discounts on consumer goods, people will find something to whine about in the comments. yay internet.

    Think pepole if they are selling a disk for 5 dollars and a direct download for the Xbox 360 for 5 dollars this is why I would take the Download Every Time. 1. $5 Disk is probably old used and abused there could be scratches that you cant see with your eyes on the disk that it minimum will cause annoying glitches and bugs and at maximum will cause you to have to get another new copy and who wants to waste their time doing that? 2. Once a game is downloaded to your Xbox you never need to go looking for the disk again you can just open your games list from the guide menu (that you can open from anywhere) and semlesly drop into the game. 3. Accidents happen, even if you never break your disk it could get lost, stolen or even lazer-burned and then once again you have to get a new one. With a downloaded title as long as its on your hard-drive OR you have access to Xbox live you can always play your game. 4. Like I mentioned earlier you dont have to go to the store you can get the game without ever getting up. 5. Even if they drop the Xbox 360s live services (they wont hell if you know anything you know that they still support the Original Xboxes servers from what over 8 frikken years ago! I'm talking to you Metroid) You dont need to work you can still play the game straight from your hard drive without access to live same as before. 6. Same price, gas is expensive cheaper to get online. P.S. None of these titles look interesting to me personally but I already have Dark Void I recommend it its an extremely fun game.

    PoP, Dark Void, and Bionic Commando will become part of my Xbox library next week.
  • Slider64 - June 15, 2012 10:53 p.m.

    All those games are worth $5, Dark Void can be frustrating at times but flying a jet pack in such giant open areas can be really fun. Let me recommend, Point the camera towards the ground then press the launch button and you will do a fast take-off directly into the ground...after you see that...your welcome
  • Redeater - June 15, 2012 3:57 p.m.

    So.....every game you can get at Gamestop or your local flea market for about the same price minus the physical copy. This is an awful list.
  • MetroidPrimeRib - June 15, 2012 2:52 p.m.

    Why would you EVER buy a game from XBL Games on Demand? Enjoy losing them once 360 support goes down.
  • michaelparkhurst - June 15, 2012 6:10 p.m.

    Then you don't know how it works, I would know more about how something works before making dumb comments. The games will still work on your Xbox if Live goes down, you just go to your dash board and select it even if you are not connected...
  • MetroidPrimeRib - June 15, 2012 6:39 p.m.

    Ever tried to play any of your games without being connected to Live? Try it, most of them don't work - even if they are single player. What I'm saying is when Live loses support you'll probably lose them.
  • bboyd - June 15, 2012 7:23 p.m.

    Except they always work on the xbox it was downloaded on. OR the profile that downloaded it as long as you're connected to Live. And if you can't connect, you can go on the internet and transfer the licenses from console to console. Nice try, there buddy.
  • michaelparkhurst - June 15, 2012 7:31 p.m.

    exactly,... bboyd is right. I can play my games all the time offline. Like I said MetroidPrimeRib, I would know how things work before making misleading comments
  • MetroidPrimeRib - June 15, 2012 7:59 p.m.

    I do know how things work. When all support drops from 360 you will be fucked like when they dropped support from Xbox - except Xbox didn't have terrible DRM. Your licenses will be what fucks you over - when you buy a game you buy the license, not the actual game. And going by the amazing track record for backwards compatibility your 720 won't play 360 games.
  • Redeater - June 15, 2012 9:29 p.m.

    ....can I point out that these are $4-$5 games? Most people buy physical products but in the event that MS does drop support they would be out less than the price of a game rental.
  • NullG7 - June 15, 2012 9:37 p.m.

    They never dropped support for Xbox like I said earlier you can go and see for yourself. I'm Sorry If your going to troll at least get your facts checked.
  • MetroidPrimeRib - June 15, 2012 11:06 p.m.

    They did in fact drop support for the original Xbox
  • D0CCON - June 15, 2012 10:13 p.m.

    I bought GTA San Andreas from Games on Demand and shortly after my internet went down for a week. I could not connect to the internet at all, LIVE included. I went to play San Andreas and didn't bother to sign into my account (so now I don't have internet AND its not tied to my profile). It worked flawlessly. People do not need to worry about losing their games if LIVE gets shut down.
  • MetroidPrimeRib - June 15, 2012 11:09 p.m.

    Losing connection to the internet is different from if Live gets shut down. There's no guarantee your licenses will still exist if they shut down Live. And I can tell you some games don't work if you don't have connection to Live.
