Xbox One Titanfall for $25, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes for $15 in New Deals With Gold

Xbox Live Gold members can get two of the Xbox One's biggest releases of the year for half price right now.

Microsoft's weekly Deals With Gold promotion doesn't typically offer great deals on Xbox One games, but this week, two major releases from the first half of the year are available for half price.

On Xbox One, Titanfall can currently be had for only $25, down from its regular price of $50. The game continues to be expanded with downloadable content, with the first of those expansions--Expedition--being offered right now for 30 percent off, making it less than $7. Also discounted is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, which can be had for $15 instead of the usual $30. The game has been criticized by some for its short length, so this lower price may make a purchase more palatable.

The Xbox 360 deals aren't quite as exciting as they have been in past weeks. If you've been holding out on buying Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, it's currently $30, while quality shooter Space Invaders Infinity Gene is just $5.

All of these deals require an active Xbox Live Gold subscription and are available through August 18. You can find the full list of discounts below.

Xbox One:

  • EA Sports UFC -- $40.19 (regularly $59.99)
  • Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes -- $15.00 (regularly $29.99)
  • Titanfall -- $24.99 (regularly $49.99)
  • Titanfall Expedition -- $6.99 (regularly $9.99)
  • Just Dance 2014 tracks:
    • "Can't Hold Us" - Macklemore -- $1.79 (regularly $2.99)
    • "Timber" - Pitbull Ft. Ke$ha -- $1.79 (regularly $2.99)
    • "Gangnam Style" - Psy -- $1.79 (regularly $2.99)
    • "Sexy And I Know It" - LMFAO -- $1.79 (regularly $2.99)
    • "Don't You Worry Child" - Swedish House Mafia -- $1.79 (regularly $2.99)

Ground Zeroes for $15? what a great discount for a demo!

Don't buy Titanfall!  Even at this price, there's never been a worse time!  Save your $$ and get Destiny in three weeks.  Titanfall's lobbies will be full of tumbleweed and nothing but tumbleweed once Destiny gets off the ground.......

I don't know why but I just bought the Expedition DLC for X1 even though I already have the Season Pass on PC. Maybe some day I will play online with some of you no matter what platform you have it on! Open invitation to anyone that might want to add me to their friends list: Wookie Groomer for both Origin and Xbox.

Given that almost all the criticism about Titanfall was over its lack of content for the price they were asking, it is a must buy at $25 if you like competitive shooters and haven't taken the plunge.

Still not paying cash for a demo. *cough*MGS:GZ*cough*

$15 still seems pretty steep for MGS:GZ, considering it'll only take less than a couple hours to complete.

Good to see they finally put some good games on sale and for a good price on Xbox One.  However it is still a mess navigating their marketplace.

Nothing really stellar on that list. Might get the Titanfall Expedition of maybe the season pass.

There must be something wrong with this annoncement.

I am shown that the game costs €35 for gold members

I was on the fence with Titanfall but that price is very alluring.

What you think?

No one seems to be playing the Titanfall expansion packs for PC. I get in and play the regular game time after time but when I load up one of the two new expansions the server drops right as the map loads and takes me back to the menu saying the server lost connection. I wonder if this is happening to the Xbox One players?

That didn't take very long for Titan fall to drop in price.

Is Metal Gear Solid worth the $15? I passed at first for all the negative marks against it.

@spacecadet25 I agree. You can count all the games on hand now. But what will it be like in a year or two?

wookiegr

@spacecadet25 I would like to see all their full games (digital) at that price or under $30 at least. This is sort of proof that Titanfall is dying off.  Hence the huge presence at Gamescom.

@sladakrobot Save your $$ and get Destiny in three weeks.  It's release will ensure that the Titanfall lobbies are pretty desolate......

@sladakrobot Half a game for half the price. Reason I bought PVZ was the price point. It intrigues me as well but I didn't like the beta so I'm still not jumping in. I'm sure it'll be free soon

@sladakrobot Go for it.

Great action like Halo and COD, but with faster speed like Unreal Tournament. Seriously hard to go back to the other competitive multiplayer games after moving so fast on foot (and on walls).

@sladakrobot Go for it. It's rare that a digital game be priced accordingly. Once you get past the games unjust stigmata you'll be surprised at how well it does everything it set out to do despite the lack of a campaign.

spacecadet25

@sladakrobot  Totally worth it.  Even if you are more casual about online shooters, this is a good game.  it has plenty of bots in every multiplayer match, so even if you aren't as good as the other human players at least you'll be getting plenty kills on bots so you can have fun too, instead of just getting totally owned.

No single player though, but for this price it's great.

@sladakrobot  IF you like shooters, you should like it. Just mute everybody before the match (which is standard procedure for me).  Once you learn the maps its fun. The kids that play on there make for easy targets.

@sladakrobot If you like FPS games and don't mind playing with 12 year olds or people with 12 year old mentalities.  I don't care for FPS anymore so I am a bit biased.

@sladakrobot I think it's a pretty good deal. Titanfall is fun at times but, gets boring after awhile and the campaign was disappointing so I wouldn't say it was worth the original price but, for that price I would say yes.

It happens to me but usually only if I stay too long on the game selection screen. Or even when I'm changing load outs >.<

@wookiegr  Interesting.  I was considering buying this DLC at this cheap price (since I love Titanfall but hate buying map pack DLCs), but if this problem on the PC is also true on Xbox One then I might pass.  Thanks for mentioning this.

It's a sale to promote DLC not a price drop

@im_jiggypoo If you plan on playing it thoroughly, then yes its worth it. If your gonna speed run it, save your money.

@im_jiggypoo The only negative I've heard is it's too short. If you're a Metal Gear Fan I'm confused as to why you don't have this already.

gokartmozart89

@im_jiggypoo The answer to this is very subjective. Huge Metal Gear fans will love it. It's got some replay value via various game modes that open up after you beat it the first time. It also sets up the story for Phantom Pain. But that first mission is short. It really takes as long as you want it to due to exploration and various paths that can be taken (I cleared them all). But if you're not a big fan of the series then this isn't for you. I'd say $10 is the sweet spot.

@im_jiggypoo No it is not worth the $15 unless you are an achievement hunter. I'm embarrassed I spent $30 on it. It ends extremely quick. It is pretty though

@im_jiggypoo i think its included with metal gear 5,its sort of like a demo if i understand it right

@wookiegr Different pricings?

It says the original price was €69,99,now down to €35.

50% off but still :-(

By the time its free there will be no need to get it. By then no one will be playing it.

Thanks for your replies guys. You made me buying this game now.

@spacecadet25 @sladakrobot That's what I like about it. I'm nowhere near a pro gamer but with bots around I get kills. And since everyone gets a Titan at least once, I don't HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT A GODDAMN KILL STREAK.

It doesn't have a real campaign. Its multi player also.

@spacecadet25 @wookiegr I'm going to completely uninstall and re-install the game tonight to see if it fixes the problem. I heard others had the same problem after getting Frontiers Edge as well.


It was really nice getting into some new maps with Expedition after getting bored with the same ones forever. I'd say get it. My trouble started with Frontiers Edge.

@sladakrobot @wookiegr Get it while its one sale if you still are considering it. I bought it and the season pass at full price when it launched so... i'm a sucker I guess.

spacecadet25

@Attitude2000 @spacecadet25 @sladakrobot  Yep, I hope more multiplayer games follow suit with this.  Inclusion of bots is a great way to get new players involved and having fun, and yes, lack of killstreak perks cuts down on people getting screwed (and hackers exploiting it).  The burn cards are sufficient perks, but I wish they lasted a few matches (or lives) instead of being so short lived.

@wookiegr I just found one copy on Amazon for €27 including shipping costs in near mint condition. Ordered.
