All those lovely Live discounts this weekend are US-only because it simply couldn’t be done anywhere else, according to Major Nelson.

“I gave the feedback about having this available for other regions, but due to a lot of issues it was not possible,” said the exec in response to inevitable whining for European gamers.

The Black Friday cuts see deals such as Rez HD for 500 Microsoft Points (£4.25), the Guitar Hero Metallica Death Magnetic album for 1440 points (£12.24) and some new premium themes for 180 points (£1.53).
