Xbox Live Deal of the Week : Scott Pilgrim vs The World

52 second read


To celebrate the US DVD and Blu-Ray release of Edgar Wright’s audiovisual take on the Scott Pilgrim series of graphic novels, Microsoft have discounted the film’s rather excellent retro game tie-in.

While we in South Africa are still patiently waiting for the god-damned cinematic release, we can make that wait easier by playing the game; a retro beat‘em up in the vein of classic RPG-lite NES brawler River City Ransom. It’s available this week for the low price of just 400 Microsoft Space Pennies, a saving of 50%.

Although it doesn’t have online co-op, it does feature some of the most fun 4 player couch co-op you’ll experience this year. It’s highly recommended – and for this price? Doubly so. Xbox Live Gold members have until November 15 to get it at this reduced price. It is, at time of writing, unfortunately not available on the ZA Marketplace.

    Why didn’t they just mirror the UK site and then do whatever removals?

    That would have been the *smart* thing to do. considering the similarity in regions, it really would have made sense.

    Because we’re supposedly vastly different (culturally) from the UK and according to most Americans, we ride on giraffes, lions and wear skins… not to mention that the whole of Africa looks the same, with starving Africans sitting under trees, with flies crawling all over them…. (AARRGH! FUCK YOU UN and your stupid adverts in subways all over Europe)

    I would even be happy if they followed through with that grossly outdated view of South Africa, and when they finally provide us with a proper service, they can pepper it with kitch Africana (because supposedly that’s what we like… mmm leopard print shorts for my avatar).

    PS: Weren’t we promised vuvuzelas for our avatars?

    Slightly offtopic: It seems that the DLC license transfer site is no longer on xbox.com, either they moved it or they’ve abandoned it (unlikely?).
