I wouldn't normally post deals, but this is a ridiculous deal.

You can use your Xbox Live points too. I had some lying around, for 10 MS points, it's a ridiculous bargain.

wow, fantastic find, the only pc game I play is age of empires II, now I can upgrade to AoE III for 10pence lol

 

SWEEET.

 

Thanks to the op for the heads up, appreciate it mate.

 

p.s. for anyone wondering, this is available to uk customers too, sign in with your xbox live account and it switches to the uk site.

10 cents!

 

I LOVED aoe3, favourite game of all time. I need to install it again and play some.

 

I was 4rth on the 1v1 elo leaderboards for a weekend a long time ago. I played that game to death, especially the fort wars mod for vanilla. I had as much fun with that as I did with the normal game. 

 

Definetly pick it up, one of the great RTS games next to starcaft, better in my opinion just because of the resources element.

OMG I HAVE EXACTLY 10 MS POINTS!!!

 

I've never played any aoe before, and have never heard of this game, but this was clearly meant to be.

SOLD.

 

Liked the first, loved the second, always wanted to try this one. Can't go wrong for this price.

This sure doesn't look like a mistake. It's a five year-old game and I'd bet that sales fell off a cliff.

Someone at Microsoft probably decided to give it away to get more people interested in the series.

So go for it. I'm not much of a Microsoft fan, but this is pretty cool and a smart marketing move.

just bought the game. sorry if I don't know this, as I havn't bought a game from microsoft in a while, but do I have to download the game from the website, or do they ship it to my house in physical form.

It's digital delivery. You download it through the Games for Windows client.

Sweet deal. I already have it, but definitely recommend it to others!

post #13 of 23

Oh man, this is perfect. I have a copy of one of the expansion packs, but not the actual game. Yay for using up excess MS points.

post #14 of 23

Too bad that I already have it and all the expansions. Excellent deal, though.

!!!

 

I loved AOE II, never bought AOE III. Until now, that is!

 

Microsoft = endless fountain of awesome. Sometimes. Maybe. just now?
