Since the Raam's Shadow DLC came out, I've been waiting for a price drop. However, it's been sitting at 1200 Microsoft points
since release. Does anyone know if/when it will cost 800 points or less? Thank you.
Not sure if they will do that for a while, maybe in a few months the price will drop. Have you gotten the other DLC? If you get the season pass you can get all the past DLC, that's what I did and it's worth the $30 to me.
It was a Deal of the Week in the last week of February (along with the other Gears of War 3 DLC packs). It was 800 points at that time.
What's the general pattern with DLC price drops?[/quote]
The general pattern is that there isn't one.
Statistically speaking, virtually nothing on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace ever drops in price. Well over 99% of Marketplace content (Arcade games, DLC expansions, Games on Demand, avatar items, themes, gamerpics, everything) never drops a single dime
in price, even many years after its release. For instance, 99% of Arcade games cost the same amount today as they did at launch, even if it's been five or six years since they came out.
Since the Gears 3 DLC packs have been a Deal of the Week in the past, there's a good chance that they will be again some time in the future; but there's no way to predict when that might be. It could be a year or more from now.
What you can be almost certain of, however, is that there won't be an actual price drop. A one-week time-limited discount is the best you'll ever get.
