I'd never bother downloading games from XBox Live when you can get cheap disc copies from eBay for a couple of quid.

Was going to get GRID but it seems that there's a problem when using MS points.

Rayman Raving rabbits £2.69 320msp

GRID £2.69 480msp

Gonna hold off for a while........

EDIT: They're aware of the issue.

Update: There is currently a system issue regarding MS Points showing the incorrect price. The team is working on it. So if you want to purchase via points, you should hold off for a bit.

Can always buy them and not install them yet, or if you have a usb memory stick hanging around, use that for a bit more extra space.

Assassins creed is ok if you play one, after that they become stale very quickly.

The first is good as it's a stand alone.
2nd one is fine as well. It's the sequels to AC2 is where it starts become all too familiar.
Only played a bit of 3 so far.

Yep, nothing like buying some games and then playing anything but them.
I would like to play GRAW / 2 again though and Rainbow Six and GRID.


Grrrrr. Need to have no life so I can play them all.

I bought Dark Messiah Might and Magic: Elements and you know what? It's actually quite fun, I would say go for it at that price if you like FPS/RPG hack and slash type games.

I also bought GRID, Dirt 2 and Bioshock. I've played all of these games before but sold them on since so I thought why not, at that price you can't go wrong.

I had to laugh @ DC's comment about "buying some games and then playing anything but them".

I dunno how many times iv'e done that tbh. I have around 90 games downloaded to the HDD and probably only played a handful of those lol. I try the trials and think 'this is quite good' and unlock the full game then move onto something else sad but true lol

I wonder how much Resi 6 will go down to? It's only £25 on GoD as it is.

I hate that, I have 200 games on my HDD in total (XBLA/Indie and GoD) and my completion rate is shockingly poor. There's just too many games, I don't need any more but seem to keep buying them anyway. It really is a nasty little addiction. I should be getting Tomb Raider through in the next few days too, even if I done nothing else but play games I still wouldn't have enough time to play them all.

I knew it'd be cheap, is it worth £8.99 though. Resi 4 is a must buy that price really.

At least there won't be any disk swapping with the Digital ver of Resi 6 which is a plus and maybe something to bear in mind..

Blimey, £8.99 for RE6, thats a tumble, even on sale I would have thought it would be more expensive.. Still don't think it's really worth it unless you are going to get Co-op going.

Already had RE4 since it launched and at that price is a steal, I'm downloading CV now, didn't realise it would be a hefty 4GB download though, but for £4.49 I can't complain.

The most ridiculous part is that instead of completing Crysis 2, a game I've had for more than 6 months. I choose to play Borderlands 2, a game I've completed several times and have 5 level 50 characters and my new one at level 34 as of last night.

Still, Resi 6 for under a tenner, hmmm....
