The Xbox Live Deal of the Week rolls the dice and ends up on Monopoly once again

Those hoping for an exciting Deal of the Week will likely be disappointed this time out. The latest sale is a repeat: Monopoly from Electronic Arts. It’s on sale for $2.99, down from an overpriced $4.99.

What can you say about Monopoly? Our review praises its faithfulness to the original board game and support of customizing the game rules. The lack of online multiplayer keeps the game from being all that it could be, but that’s mobile Xbox Live for you. Thankfully the game does support local multiplayer, which could be fun if you’re stuck somewhere with nothing to do. Easy Achievements (only one of which is luck based) might provide an incentive to buy as well.

Monopoly is on sale for $2.99 for one week only. Grab it here on the Marketplace.

  • ?Aren't you the monopoly man?"
  • lol!
    Excellent picture! "Hey! Thanks for the free parking!"
  • I dont know how it is in us but here in germany it is down to 2,99€ and before 4,99€.
  • Excellent graphic for this. lol
  • The movie that pic is from :P
  • Its still $2.99 in the USA. Am I missing something?
  • I had the price wrong - the regular price is $4.99, so $2.99 is technically a sale. Sorry about that.
  • Thanks for the update.
  • thank Eastx.  I won't bite for the second time.  This is one of the titles in need of a price drop, then a DOTW to follow that. :)  4.99 way too much imo unless it had true live multiplayer I might consider it for that price.  1.99 I would bite. 
    Plants vs. Zombies I want you for the DOTW!!!!! 
  • Doodle Jump needs to be DOTW one week!
  • On the plus side, it's an easy 200 GP.
  • "Do not pass go, do not collect $200!!" Love that movie.
