Get Soul Calibur 5 for the incredibly low price of $3.74; sale ends today, exclusive to Xbox Live Gold subscribers

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • March 17, 2014 at 4 p.m. PDT

Microsoft is currently running their weekly sale on the Xbox Live Marketplace, and Namco Bandai's Soul Calibur 5 can be purchased for an incredibly discounted price.

Right now, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can purchase the digital download of SCV for only $3.74 USD, down from its original price of $14.99. Unfortunately, we didn't catch wind of this sale until today, so you only have one day to buy. The sale began on March 11, and it ends March 17.

Needless to say, getting an entire 3D fighting game for under $4 is an exceptional deal. If you're looking to pick it up, act fast and head over to Xbox.com! Or you can find it on your Xbox 360 dashboard as well.

Can't pass this up. Haven't really been a fan of the SC series but as a fighting game player I must do this. I might like it if I actually play it.

Of course Ivy's tits is present when a SC themed article happens lol

I would actually buy this, but I already own the disc and not worth the wasted 6GB+ memory required.

Cool, because I remember watching it die slowly lol. Time to pick it up again and remake all my old characters. Lost my data after switching xbox's. A good deal that's worth taking.

I agree. I don't know why but SC5 is just so boring to me now. There was alot that SC5 did get right though. If i could design the next one I would have a mix of SC5 and SC2 gameplay, SC5's and SC3's character creation depth, SC5's online, and SC3's single player modes.

- Yes there are still people online.
- Yes the roster is kinda weak.
- Yes it is not the strongest game of the series, but it's still SC overall, and that's a very good game.
- Character creation is more than worth it (can NOT mod movesets though).
- No, DLC has not been reduced in price.
- They have not adjusted the player point values to go with this sale. It takes a very long time to reach level 100 to unlock everything for character creation. :(
- $4 is an absolute steal in terms of value. Give it a go. I still play a lot.

Wow Eventhubs is really slow on these type of news. This sale has been going on since March 11 and post about this sale on the very last day? And I thought Eventhubs don't care about Soul Calibur 5 anymore.

5€ in France (7 or 8$ ?), almost twice as expensive as in US - and i suppose most of Europe. I understand that it's quite expensive to transfer digital data in another country..

SC5 is one of the better SC games for the combat in my opinion the online is also amazing. The character creation is hands doen the best the series has had if it can improve again next time it will be amazing.

Single player is trash, the new characters (except for ZWEI and Viola) are horrendous in fact the roster overall is rather weak for the series here unfortunately.

For the price its well worth it I bought it full price and wasnt disappointed except for in the things I already mentioned. After SC1 I would say its my favourite SC its just a shame it was obviously not finished and had some really bad character decisions in it.

Skipped it when dropped and even now still could care less.
Mostly because of odd roster choices. I grew up on SC and
was fill with profound sadness to not some of my favorites return.

Thumb is from SCIV btw. Hard to forget that epic underboob. SCV dialed it back a little.
