XBox Live Arcade House Party - Buy All 4 XBLA Games Get 940 Microsoft Points
 
officially announced by major nelson here [majornelson.com] are dates, prices and this promotion of getting 800 microsoft points back if you buy all 4 games.

2/15/12 - warp : 800 microsoft points - metacritic: 72 [metacritic.com]
2/22/12 - alan wake's american nightmare : 1200 microsoft points - metacritic: 77 [metacritic.com]
2/29/12 - nexuiz : 800 microsoft points - metacritic: ?? [metacritic.com]
3/7/12 - i am alive : 1200 microsoft points - metacritic: ?? [metacritic.com]

these games total up to 4000 microsoft points reduced to 3200 once you get the 800 free points. that's only a 20% savings but like someone below said, not a bad deal if you were planning on getting all 4. or you could look at it as getting nexuiz or warp for free.....

the quote from majornelson:
"PLUS To make the most of your blockbuster game bash, all party goers will receive 800 Microsoft Points when you buy all four participating House Party games from February 15 – March 13."
is also notable because you can wait until the last week to buy all 4 games and still get the 800 points back just in case anyone was questioning when you had to buy each game.

also for the whole month of february you get 5% back on ALL xbox live marketplace purchases (http://rewards.xbox.com). so if you factor that into this deal as well, it will apply to 3 out of the 4 games and get you an extra 140 microsoft points back. so overall you are now getting a 23.5% discount on the games.

not too interested in most of those games...good for people who planned on purchasing at least 3 of them though.

I'm guessing Alan Wake's American Nightmare, I Am Alive, and Nexuiz will all be 1200 Microsoft Points each. Warp will probably be 800 Microsoft Points.

1200 for all or 1200 each?

1200 + 800 = 400 for all would be a Hell of a deal

No, the games will not be 300 microsoft points each. That would only happen in Fantasia, where you could we could write our own story. Here, Microsoft chooses the price points. They will be 1200 each.




Long live the Orrin.

This really isn't a slickdeal, especially since it is more than a month away still

It's slicker than most and it allows others to save their points for these instead of NOT knowing and blowing them on something else.


There are deals on this board that save you 1.50. I'm pretty sure saving $10 is a deal.

Ignoring the fact that this isn't even a possible deal until the start of mid-febuary and complete-able before weeks afterwards, it simply isn't that great. You get 2/3 off your last game if you buy them all. Yeah, if you were planning on buying all four on release you save 15-20% off the package. But take for example last year's "House Party", one game Torchlight dropped 800 points on a sale within a year. I'm fairly certain I've seen Hard Corps Uprising on a similar sale, and am certain for Beyond Good & Evil HD.

added info about the 5% back you get from xbox rewards to the OP. i will bump this thread again the day house party starts (next wednesday).

hightop32 02-11-2012 05:40 AM

if you already own one of these games, or use a download code to 'purchase' it... does that count?

pacman85 02-15-2012 07:30 AM

house party has began which means warp is out today. i'll post a metacritic link when its page has enough reviews to get a rating.
