Xbox Live Black Friday Sale: 'Gears of War 2', 'Rez HD', 'Assault Heroes', and More!


Posted November 26, 2008 - By r_pad

Not to be outdone by Sony's PlayStation Network sale, Microsoft is holding its own Black Friday specials. The good news is that there are a lot of great deals to be had on Xbox Live Arcade titles, downloadable content, and themes. Notable items and their respective prices in points include Rez HD (500), Assault Heroes (500), Metallica's Death Magnetic for Guitar Hero 3 (1,000), the "Getting Busy Pack" for Crackdown (500), and Gears of War 2 "Last Day" theme (180).

Now for the bad news: you have to be an Xbox Live Gold subscriber to get these savings. According to Microsoft's Major Nelson:

"The sale starts Friday morning and will run through Sunday evening. These special prices will be available for Xbox LIVE Gold Members in the US only. The new prices will be updated on Friday morning when the sale kicks in."

While the sale prices are nice, it's kind of crappy that you have to be a gold member (*snicker*) to get these savings.
