January Xbox Live Deals, New Content Get Details

Major Nelson from Xbox Live just threw down a list of Deals of the Week and new content coming to Xbox Live for the rest of the month, and good news: the first few items are all zombie-related, culminating in Plants vs. Zombies getting knocked down to 800 points for the week of Jan. 17.

The blog post also hints at two big DLC sales this month: one concerning Activision, starting Jan. 11 and running until Jan. 18, and the other for Electronic Arts, starting Jan. 18 and going until Jan. 25. Both will have 25 pieces of content on sale for up to half off — the Activision sale will include Call of Duty map packs and Guitar Hero tracks, and both sales will have Xbox Live Arcade games on sale, as well. No more details are available than that, though: the major says we’ll get further details on our Xbox dashboards the days the sales start.

If you’re not an Xbox Live Gold Member, you miss out on a lot of this stuff, but Microsoft is offering a three-day Gold upgrade to all members from Jan. 28 to Jan. 31, basically as a free trial.
