Xbox Live Marketplace Update for 10/24/12

Today’s update to the Xbox Live Marketplace brings demo-fun for the whole family, as well as a bit of tournament fighting action.

In the free demos department, we have slightly Avatar-esque versions of Alex Trebek, Pat Sajak, and Vanna White hosting Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. Or, for 1,200 Microsoft Points, you can get in on some classic arcade-style fun with GUILTY GEAR XX ΛCORE PLUS.

Forza Horizon has two new downloadable goodies ready to go right out of the gate as well. The “Season Pass” will run you 4,000 MS Points, while the “Launch Day Car Pack” is only 400.

This week’s Deals of the Week for Gold members are BioShock-related, and run until October 29th. Here’s the breakdown:

  • BioShock 1 Varies by Region
  • BioShock 2 Varies by Region
  • Minerva’s Den 400 (50% off)
  • The Protector Trials 200 (50% off)
  • Rapture Metro 400 (50% off)
  • Sinclair Solutions Tester Pack 200 (50% off)

Another special sale until the 29th is the Kinect game Leedmees for 400 MS Points (50% off), while the vague “Shocktober Discounts” run until the 31st, and are 50% off, whatever they are.

Finally, new Games on Demand include Bakugan Battle Brawlers 2: Defenders of the Core and Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction, while the Avatar Marketplace now has updates for Dark Creatures and WWE ’13.
