They already have Steam-like sales with the Deal of the Week, I just bought Bully for $3.57 the other day and it still goes for $20+ in stores.


You're kidding me right? Citing Bully as a "Steam-like sale" ? That game has been on sale at Amazon for $14.99 forever. And about $7 at Gamestop for just as long.


A week or two ago on amazon it was $4.99 with Manhunt and Manhunt 2, combo deal.

Get rid of Kinect that I don't want or need, and I'll buy one. It's really the one thing holding me back from buying the console.

This.


Stop drinking the koolaid, see above post, and learn something


Just because they have different price elsewhere doesn't make it a non steam like sale.

Just like steam, the xbl store is a closed market and anything that's significantly cheaper then it was for a period of time makes it sale, and the sales have been really good lately so that's why people say they're like steam sales.

It's just a business strategy that's been around for a long time. When Gameboy first came out, each one came with a Tetris cartridge.


This. Also the Super NES came bundled with Super Mario World and that was a system seller.

PC games have always been sold at a cheaper price than console games so a direct comparison is unfair. XBL is still better than PSN though.
