Xbox Live Marketplace Update for 8/29/12

Not a whole lot going on in Xboxville today, but there are a few items of note.

If standing up in your living or bedroom and rocking out with plastic instruments isn’t your thing, but you still want to experience the thrill of Rock Band, then perhaps the Xbox Live Arcade release of Rock Band Blitz for 1,200 Microsoft Points will be just the thing to strum your chords… or something.

Miss out on the hype of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? With the next CoD just around the corner, Activision is trying to entice new players to check out the series with a free single-player demo. Or if you prefer your conflicts in space, then 800 Points will allow you to spice up the Mass Effect 3 experience by allowing you to take on Leviathan.

The following deals of the week are yours (if you’re a Gold member, I believe) to take advantage of until September 3rd:

  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations – “Ancestors Character Pack” 160 (50% off)
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations – “Mediterranean Traveler Map Pack” 400 (50% off)
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations – “The Lost Archive” 400 (50% off)
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations – Codex 120 (50% off)
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations – Eagle 120 (50% off)
  • Assassin’s Creed Revelations – Piece of Eden 120 (50% off)

In addition, Kinect Central – The Gunstringer: El Diablo’s ‘Merican Adventure is on sale for 120 Microsoft Points (50 percent off), and Rockstar is having a publisher sale, both until September 3rd as well.
