Default You can now buy XBLA games on Amazon.com

Smart move. For me this is 100x more compelling than buying them on the 360 as you are paying exactly how much they cost instead of a points card where you will most likely have left over points.

Just realized they do charge taxes (I live in WA)... that kinda sucks.

I like the fact Amazon is actually putting XBLA games on sale. Just bought Pac-Man CE $5 (plus 39 cents tax which sucks).

I got Galaga Legions for $4.97 (from $10) and man that's really a good deal. Something like that, that actually makes up for having taxes for us WA residents.

I look forward to future deals on XBLA titles form Amazon.com.

Amazon has another sale going. I would have gotten TMNT if the remake wasn't coming.

Actually upcoming remake is Turtles in Time (the sequel), not first one.

If you buy it, does it all download swimmingly?
