Magic: The Gathering - Deal Of The Planeswalkers

If you're an Xbox 360 owner and a fan of insanely addictive collectible card game Magic: The Gathering, this week's Xbox Live Deal of the Week is definitely for you.

Knowing Magic: The Gathering fans, most of you have already dropped 800 Microsoft points for the excellent Duels of the Planeswalkers, but for those of you new to Xbox 360 ownership and those who might have been too busy playing the actual game to buy the digital one, now's your chance. Microsoft has the game for half-price this week, and 400 points ($5) is an absolute steal where Duels of the Planeswalkers is concerned.

For those who've missed out, Duels combines real-time multiplayer duels online with a story mode that has you unlocking new decks and new cards as you battle your way through a series of increasingly difficult NPCs.

Hell, I'd urge fans of any sort of strategy game to give it a go. It beats spending thousands on physical cards.
