Xbox deals at Fry's/

Let's call this a public service announcement ...

The first two of the March-to-May "Christmas in spring" Xbox releases hit stores this week, and are on sale at brink-and-mortar Fry's, and its online component. Both games are only $37.99 at the store (for the weekend), and $39.99 online.

  • Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 -- This is a game that looks to take WWII shooters to a whole new level. Created by Texas-based Gearbox Software as their first original IP for Ubisoft, this game looks to fall in the "important to play" category of games. Though not associated with the phenomenal HBO series Band of Brothers, this game is a lot like playing the series. Keep in mind, this is the game that allegedly stopped Steven Spielberg in his tracks at last year's GDC (Spielberg was producer of both Band of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan).

  • Star Wars Republic Commando -- Love Star Wars? Hate the new trilogy? Looking for something a little darker, a little more violent, a little something that can get the taste of Jar Jar out of your mouth (turns out he doesn't taste like chicken ...)?

    How 'bout Star Wars Republic Commando -- an accessible squad-based first-person shooter that takes a nod from Halo, and adds squad mates that don't have brain-dead AI.

Also, I noticed that Hip Interactive's Bluetooth wireless controller/headset combo is out, and is only $60 at Fry's/ Given that I knocked my Fat Tire over again the other night while getting my tail kicked on Halo 2, I've been waiting for a decent wireless Live combo implementation. Dunno if this is it, but the price is cheaper than I can get a decent headset for. I haven't been able to find a reputable review, but when I do, I'll post an update.
