Dunno whether it would work out cheaper to just get the majority of these on the Mega Drive collection disc, unless you happen to have a preference towards having them downloaded.

I will say though that OutRun is being delisted at the end of the year due to the expiration of their Ferrari liscence so if you want to pick it up before it goes, this would be a good time.

Theyve already stopped production on the Outrun 2 SPDX machines and there only about 6 months old. Its a shame because i grew up on games like outrun and hang on, good old master system. Sega really have ditched there best licences since the dreamcast failed, wanted another Jet Set Radio as well.

I swear they always put the XBL arcade games I buy on sale right after I buy them. x_x

What time should this start?

Looks like they've started. Afterburner is showing as 400 anyway.

All in, a slightly disappointing set of deals here. It sickens me that Microsoft are so tight-fisted that they wont even give 50% discounts on the old Mega Drive games that many people have already paid for at least once in the past. Just wringing those extra 40 points per purchase is a real slap in the face of XBL Marketplace customers. I wouldn't touch any of them unless they were 160 or less tbh. Same thing with Sonic Adventure- they do the same thing they did last time, which is to discount Sonic Adventure but not the DX content... Grr. Still, I'm sure some people will be glad with the Sonic 4 discount. Good on the OP for linkage though.

EDIT: OP, don't know where you got your info but half these prices are wrong! Need to update these:

Altered Beast, Comix Zone, Ecco, Golden Axe, Gunstar Heroes, Phantasy Star II, Shinobi, Sonic 1, 2 & 3, and Streets of Rage 2 are 200, not 240.
Virtual On is 600, not 800.

Hadn't started when I looked which is why I asked.

Sonic for 200 - that's one I'm buying anyway.
I got 850 points, was thinking of keeping them towards the B-Ops new map pack, but I don't think I can resist at least the first Sonic.
Haven't played that for years.

Heat, i guess, given the prices have been slashed - good spot. Though Microsoft really do take the p!ss with their pricing on such old games.

No Rez included alas so not "all" Sega arcade items, but still a good deal.

says 240 pts on mine for sonic 1 2 3 knuckles

Bought Gunstar and Virtual On but wanted Rez!

Why you no like Rez?!

own ten of them already but have some heat for some classic games

Selling games for $2/3 when they are nearly as old as I am? Got to be a nutter to buy these.

sonic and knuckles for 120 points , dont matter how old it is for 120 points , cant go wrong , except now ive got a spare 80 points that ill probably have to spend on a hat or something as crap

and you've left sonic and knuckles off the list , i brought it yesterday , thats how i know its 120 points
