This week's Xbox LIVE update introduces some lovely updates, and Gold subscribers are getting "Deal of the Week" items that they'll actually care about.
Both Mass Effect add-ons, "Bring Down the Sky" and "Pinnacle Station," are at 240 Microsoft Points this week, down from the original 400 Points or five bucks -- that's $2.00 off, if you were wondering.
Valve's unexpected hit Portal: Still Alive is scheduled to go on sale in a couple weeks, from 1200 Points ($15) to 800 ($10). Seriously, even gamers who usually avoid puzzle games can enjoy this, and you'll have the pleasure of meeting GLaDOS.
