A constant complaint that we receive here at Lazygamer is that the South African Xbox marketplace isn’t up to scratch compared to the worldwide stores and even the local PSN store. But a lot of people are stuck using it still.
Numerous reports are coming in of widespread Xbox Live bans again, but itâ€™s not the usual â€œmodded consoleâ€ banwave that makes affected consoles unable to connect to Microsoftâ€™s network.
Instead, users are being banned for â€œMarketplace theft.â€ The problem, this time, is that many claim theyâ€™ve done no wrong.
Major Nelson has confirmed to us all that there are some goodies awaiting us on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
The new Borderlands DLC New Robot Revolution is now available for download on the marketplace, and will run you 800 MS points and 1GB.
Also available today is the EA Sports MMA demo which also weighs in at 1GB.
You can schedule up the Borderlands DLC here and the MMA demo here.

Those of you out there who are petrol-heads and are still enjoying Forza Motorsport 3 can now head on over to the Xbox Live Marketplace and pick up the latest DLC car pack, titled The Road & Track Pack.
The new DLC pack is 104MB, costs 400 MS Points and includes 10 new sexy beasts for you to get loose with. If you only go with the sample pack, the new MINI Coupe Concept car is yours for free, and you get to see the other new cars around you when playing online, rather than that generic black thing.
More information about the cars in the pack and link after the jump.
Major Nelson has just informed us via his Twitter feed that Xbox Live is now having an inventory blowout sale (list in image above).
What his basically is, is a whole heap of marketplace content selling mostly at half price. The best part is that it is available to both Gold and Silver members, so if anything on the list interests you, now is the time to get buying.
The discounted prices will be available until April 7.

Battlefield fans rejoice! The multiplayer demo for Bad Company 2 is officially available to download right now for the Xbox 360 on Xbox Live.
Some local tweets informed me that the demo is apparently only up on the US marketplace but I have found a direct link to the Xbox.com Marketplace and it seems to be scheduling up just fine.
We will have to see if it will block the actual Xbox for any reason and we will try to update as soon as we can.
Here is the LINK to the marketplace. The demo is 1GB and features the Port Valdez map.
The moment of reckoning has arrived, the Left 4 Dead 2 demo has landed on the Xbox Live Marketplace and we all now get the chance to see if itâ€™s really worthy of being a sequel or is it purely a cash in that should have been DLC?
The demo clocks in at over 2Gb so itâ€™s not for the feint hearted but seeing as this demo is multiplayer enabled and could really be viewed as a mini arcade title all by itself I would say itâ€™s worth the download.
We will be downloading it throughout the day and hopefully have some first impression feedback in the morning.
Honestly I had never heard of this show before until Unsafestcorpse pointed it out to me on the Xbox Live marketplace last night. If you want to check out more of the episodes shoot over too their Youtube page. I myself don't find it that funny after watching a couple of them, they have their moments though. [ It's quite a laugh if you are a big fan of MMO's - Ed ]
What does catch me as strange is that Microsoft and Xbox Live have actually sponsored them to create a second season, which will be available on Xbox Live in HD. It's good for them and everyone deserves a chance, I personally would have rather seem Arbie and Chief in HD on Xbox Live, but hey at least they are free.
