RAAM's Shadow Price Drop?

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.

Thanks for the reply.  Well, next month it will have been six months since the release of the DLC and I figured it was about time for the price to drop.  What's the general pattern with DLC price drops?

I have no interest in the other DLC because I want RAAM purely for the singleplayer experience, as I don't play online much.  Thus, the season pass is not a good option for me.

Maybe you will see it on deal of the week someday, i think it was on deal of the week once already.

next thursday

Guess you have the inside scoop haha, but yeah I forgot about it being on deal of the week. It will probably show up there again.

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.

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.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

I wish there was a way to be notified of such special week deals.  Is there?  A one-week window is a pretty short time, and the chance of missing it is high if I'm not put on notice. :(

Major Nelson often posts upcoming deals and releases. You can follow his site with RSS or his Twitter feed.

Thanks!  That's helpful. :)

Its now 600 points
