This years after Christmas sales are crap.

I seem to remember last year and the previous years seeing much better video game deals. You could get current titles for what seemed like a lot less. Even Gamestop doesn't have the buy 2 get 1 free sale going on. Am I remembering things wrong?

Eh, I dunno. I got that $10 Rayman Origins thing. That was a good use of points.

I'm looking forward to The Walking Dead sale, since i've only downloaded ep. 1 & 2.

Might also pick up some Skyrim DLC if the sale is decent.

Generally I only see a couple of items worth picking up, so (in my opinion) I think the sales are on par with my expectations.

I was kinda hoping Rockstar's sale would have included some L.A. Noire DLC, but looks like i'll have to pick that up for regular price. Not a bad thing since I got the main game (plus one DLC case free) on a Black Friday sale.

Really? I thought this year was the best year so far personally

So much stuff I couldn't even buy it all

Edit: Just realized you're not specifically talking about Xbox live sales

I'd have to agree that this years Live and PSN sales are fantastic but yes I'm talking about Best Buy, Gamestop, Target and the like. Those sales are mediocre at best.

Eh? No way. Brick and mortar stores had great sales this year.

Of course it wasn't anything unusual or unexpected but they came through anyway.

I've gotten a lot of great PC deals so far. Scribblenauts Unlimited for 7 bucks on Amazon being the shining moment.

I personally found some great deals this holiday season. Excluding the Xbox live deals (which I nabbed Mark of the Ninja and Dust for 600 point each), I also grabbed:

Dark Souls - $12.99
Zelda: Skyward Sword with Music CD: $20
Kirby's Epic Yarn: $5
Sin and Punishment: Star Successor - $5
The Last Story LE - $30

There were a bunch of other deals out there as well I noticed...maybe not as cheap as you'd like.

I ordered:

Skyrim - 29.99
Sonic & Sega Allstars Racing Transformed - 29.99
Fallout New Vegas Ultimate - 19.99
Doom 3 BFG Edition - 19.99

from bestbuy.ca

There were tons of great deals but a lot of the games I already bought when they were new.
