Summer of Arcade prices and dates announced

Microsoft's annual Summer of Arcade promotion is typically a raucous success, offering forth some of the best, most varied downloadable games that have ever appeared on Xbox Live Arcade. This year looks to be no different as a number of high profile, highly anticipated titles are included. 

Today we found out a little bit more about the upcoming promotion as Microsoft announced the dates and prices for this set of games. As usual they'll be launching one after the other, one-per-week starting July 18 and proceeding through August 15.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD - 1200 MSP - July 18
Wreckateer - 800 MSP - July 25
Deadlight - 1200 MSP - August 1
Hybrid - 1200 MSP - August 8
Dust: An Elysian Tale - August 15

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is undoubtedly the most well-known of the five titles, but we're also very much looking forward to having a go at Dust, the utterly gorgeous 2D action title from one-man studio Humble Hearts.

    Still nearly 2 months until Dust? Well, at least it IS coming this summer. Perfectly fine with 1200 MSP. Game has been in development for ages and looks gorgeous and pretty fun besides.

    I'm curious about Deadlight, been waiting for that game for a while.

    Only one I'll be getting is Tony Hawk's loved that game so much. Hopefully it'll do really well so they ditch the RIDE/SHRED crap and make a new game in the same vein as pro skater, THUG or even American Wasteland...

    How much is Dust going to be? It's the only one without a price. Unfortunately I figure it'll be the standard 1200 Microsoft Moon Dollars.

    Dunno why GR haven't mentioned it, but yeah, it's 1200 according to the original post.

    probably just forgot to type it in. It's reported as 1200 M$Ps on other sites.
