    There's a whole bunch of stuff to download on the Xbox Live Marketplace this week, although much of it is add-ons rather than games. This week sees Microsoft getting into the Xmas spirit with Kinect Party available for free until the end of the year. Great... If you've got a Kinect.

    Elsewhere, you'll find a free add-on for Kinect Party, as well as the arrival of the Forza Horizon Rally Expansion Pack, Battlefield 3: Aftermath for non-Premium members and Xbox 360-exclusive Resident Evil 6 DLC packs. Rage's Scorchers DLC also rocks up over a year after the game's launch, alongside festive costumes for the guys and gals of Dead or Alive 5.

    As well as a host of Winter deals, which you'll find in a follow-up post shortly, there's discounts on Serious Sam stuff on XBLA, amongst other things. Check it all out below.

      Xbox Live Daily Deal Day #4 - Rockstar Games on Demand

      As the Countdown to 2013 Daily Deals continue, it's time for a small selection of Rockstar titles to receive a one-day price cut. There's four games to choose from, as you can see right here:

      LA Noire - Was: $29.99 Now: $19.99 (£11.99) 33% off

      Red Dead Redemption - Was: $29.99 Now: $19.99 (£11.99) 33% off

      Max Payne 3 - Was: $59.99 Now: $39.99 (£14.99) 33% off

      Midnight Club: LA - Was: $14.99 Now: $9.99 (£8.99) 33% off

      It's the perfect opportunity to brush up on your Rockstar games before Grand Theft Auto V hits in spring 2013. Or whatever... We just wanted to tenuously tie this in with GTA V somehow...
