Deal of the Week: Everything but the kitchen sink


The titular deal of the week, this week, offers a splash of something for just about everyone out there. Whether you're into platformers, action and adventure, sports, racers, arcade throwbacks, beat-em-ups or dungeon crawlers — you'll find something to blow a few bucks on and have some fun in the process. The deep discounts are exclusive to Xbox Live Gold Members, who can reap the savings starting today, through Monday, May 6. Hit the images below to check out each individual sale.

Zombie Driver HD gets things started this week, cleaving its price tag in half at 400 MSP. The classic co-op beat-em-up The Simpsons Arcade Game also enters the list at a paltry 400 MSP. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD follows the half-price trend, grinding costs down to 600 MSP, from 1200 MSP. Rounding out the top-row is the action-movie action game, Joe Danger 2: The Movie. It's the most expensive of the bunch this time around, but can still be snagged for the discounted price of 800 MSP, down from the original 1200 MSP.

Continuing right along we've got Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale and Scott Pilgrim The Game each available for 320 MSP, down from 800 MSP. Complimenting the latter offering, Scott Pilgrim The Game downloadable content, Knives Chau Add-On Pack, can be snatched for the pocket change price of 80 MSP. Checking off the "throwback" box, both PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX and X-Men are yours to keep at 400 MSP, half off their original 800 MSP tags.

Huge "Countdown to 2013" marketplace sale begins December 18

In a blog post he's since deleted, Xbox Live Director of Programming, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, announced the "Countdown to 2013" sale for the marketplace. The sale, which begins on December 18 and runs through December 31, will see discounts for a raft of content from certain franchises and publishers on both XBLA and the wider marketplace.

Although the official page has been pulled, the folks over at NeoGAF managed to compile a reasonably comprehensive list of the titles to go on sale and the date their discounts will take effect. Unfortunately, Major Nelson never revealed the discounted prices at any stage. But if you hope to catch any of the games or DLC in the list below for cheap, it may pay to stock up on MSP!

However, the fact that the official page has been pulled (even though most of the details are out in the wild) has us at least a little concerned, so maybe try not to pin all your hopes and dreams on the "Countdown to 2013" sale.

The full list of currently known discounted XBLA items follows:
