@slapshot82: You can find the Deals of the Week usually located in the Spotlight section on the Xbox Dashboard menu. You will see a tab that says "sales & special offers". This week's deals are Castlevania themed; Harmony of Despair, Symphony of the Night and the HoD add-on stages are all half-off. Deal of the Week is updated every Tuesday and new XBLA games show up on Wednesday.

Slapshot, you can also check out Larry Hyrb's (Major Nelson) web site for a pretty awesome list of the Deals. A google for "Major Nelson" should bring it right up. I've seen him talk about some additional discounts that weren't obviously indicated on the Dashboard.

Currently own: Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS, iPad, PC's, WP7 Phone and a Vita. Who you callin' a fanboy?!

Thanks guys for the heads up on the sales!

@Magi... Haha, I found that last night and his site is really helpful indeed!

Splinter Cell Conviction, well I've now almost beaten it the first time and I'm really impressed with the game. It at first seemed way different than previous titles, but the stealth elements are still intact, but this time around Sam is just really pissed off - that is an understatement too! I like the using the environments and stealth together to take down loads of enemies. It is a fun change of pace, and a great story line as well. The co-op options are really fun as well. Graphically a little disappointing, but otherwise it's a great $20 investment! I'm going to snag Double Agent to get my old-school fix on as well too!

Glad you enjoyed Conviction! Can't really say anything about Double Agent, as I never got around to picking that one up.

@Fox...It's definitely different, but sometimes change isn't a bad thing. I almost said screw it after the first level as it wasn't what I expected, but I'm glad I didn't. After understanding what the game was about and that the Executions can only be done if a melee attack is performed prior to gain the ability. Going in for the stealth kill and then setting up a 3-4 person Execute perfectly is awesome!

Oh, I did a survey today from Sony and landed a $10 Amazon gift card, so I bought Gears of War double pack for $17. Yeah I know, so wrong to get a gift card from Sony and spend it on Microsoft, but oh well!

Just picked up a 360 Slim yesterday, so anybody who want's to add me, feel free. (Gamertag in sig) =] Just picked up Halo: Reach, so should start playing the living crap out of it. Aside from that though, WOW I forgot how robust and awesome the 360 online was. PSN's is free for a reason...the 360's online bits are so well done and intuitive.

If anyone is interested I have two codes for the final week of the Gears of War 3 beta. Just send me a message on my 360. My Gamertag is in my signature.

I know pretty much nothing what so ever about the 360 what is the difference between the $199 and the $299 version?

Is it really just memory or is there more to it?

I'm not really worried about all the extra bells and whistles I just want to play games and maybe watch Netflix so you think I would be ok with the $199 version?

Some games won't be ok with it. It also doesn't take long to fill. One or two downloads might do it in.

This might be a bit late, but if you're not looking to do too much the $199 model should be O.K for you. You can always use a USB storage device if you don't want a hard drive. Just keep in mind that it can't exceed 16GB and some of the cheaper ones have been known to have compatibility issues.

There are loads more great games that I don't even have. But don't take my word for it. Every XBLA game has a trial you can try, making it easy to determine for yourself what games are best for you. I <3 XBLA!

Damn, that's a good list Mickeymac put up! There's only a few others I'd add such as Plants vs Zombies, Trials HD, Pac Man CE and Pac Man CE: DX.
