Microsoft's weekly sale for Xbox Live Gold members has begun, and as usual, the bulk of the deals can be found on Xbox 360.

Whereas last week saw only a single Xbox One game discounted, this week gives you a choice of three: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is $40, Contrast is $10, and the ultra-hard 1001 Spikes is $10.

On Xbox 360, $5 gets you a copy of The Orange Box, a collection of Valve games (Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2, and Portal) that was an excellent deal at full price. That's even more true for $5, even if the console versions of TF2 have never been updated in the way the computer version has.

Also discounted is Syndicate, which offers an enjoyable co-op multiplayer mode, for $5, and a selection of DLC for Mass Effect 2 and 3 (including some of the best stuff, like Lair of the Shadow Broker) for half price.

These deals run from now through September 29. You can check out a full list of them below.

Some great deals. Definitely getting The Orange Box. That game is still expensive in stores.

Steam, because playing those games on a console would just be sacrilege.

I still don't understand why the DLC for Mass Effect won't go on sale for PC. Bioware should remove their currency and allow the DLC to drop in price on origin.

@Heartagram_03 Same here. Been waiting for the DLC to go on sale for PC as well, and I really hate how Origin requires "points" to buy things instead of normal money. I definitely don't intend to buy into any more games or series that are tied to Origin.


But really, just offer the games on Steam like it's another store to sell in or another platform to develop on. That would be the best option.

For those of you who are going to buy any Mass Effect 3 DLC, this is my recommendation, get Ashes, (for the new squad member and it comes with a good weapon) Leviathan, (which tells the origins of the Reapers) and Citadel. (which is the best ME3 DLC yet) Omega DLC is one of the worst ME3 DLC and it is still too high for what it's worth, just youtube it and save your money.

Really, I didn't think that Bioware would actually be interested releasing Mass Effect trilogy to next-gen but if they do, I'll look into it.

Regardless of the discount, Orange Box is a must own. However I would also use the savings to grab Syndicate as well.

Syndicate was a decent to good FPS that imo underperformed more because fans of the original cried about the genre changed than whether or not it was a good game. For $5 it'll keep you occupied for 10-20 hours, has a decent story, and if you can tolerate it(or even enjoy it like i do) a decent soundtrack. Skrillex & Nero ftw!

Also Orange Box, or at least the retail version, had HL2 and HL2:Ep 1 as well. So that'd be 5 excellent games for $5!

<< LINK REMOVED >> Yeah, I enjoyed Syndicate knowing that it was created by the dev that made Riddick which also was an awesome game.

Quite a good deal on the orange box! They could do this on regular basis, like steam sales. Then we will see if someone insn't ready to go full digital.
