Xbox Live Marketplace Update for 10/3/12

Following last week’s update, a series of deals were posted for Dance Central. These are for a limited time, though they don’t specify when the deals expire, so it’s best not to waste any time. There are also new free demos for the Kinect games Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth and Dance Central 3.

For some reason, this Friday (rather than today) will see the addition of two SEGA classics to Xbox Live Arcade. Both Sonic Adventure 2 and NiGHTS Into Dreams will be available in high-definition for 800 Microsoft Points each.

Deals of the Week for Gold members last until October 8th, and include Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown for 600 MS Points, Dungeon Fighter LIVE for 400, Street Fighter 3 Online Edition for 600, and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix for 600. Other deals include the “Activision Publisher Sale”, with prices/offers that vary, Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition for 400 Points, and Fighters Uncaged for 25% off.

New to Games on Demand this week are Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012, and LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues.

Finally, there are new Avatar Marketplace items based on Frankenweenie, NBA 2K13, Resident Evil 6, and an NHL update.
