Half-price XBLA games this weekend!

Aug 31, 2007

Good news cheapskates; Microsoft is slashing the price of a handful of Xbox Live Arcade games by half - for this weekend only.

Gauntlet, Dig Dug, Zuma Deluxe and (something worth buying) Small Arms have all been slashed for the weekend, the first two down to 200 ($2.50 or £1.70) points and the latter two for 400 points ($5.00 or £3.40).

The last one - a Power Stone-style fighter/platformer from Gastronaut - is definitely worth picking up if you've got some points left over.

There's no mention of what the price drop is in celebration of, but we'd like to think it's a way of celebrating us finally passing the million-point mark in Geometry Wars.

Cyberball 2072 and Fatal Fury Special have been named as next week's Wednesday releases (Microsoft's on the ball today), the former being the obligatory Midway retro offering and the later a classic SNK fighter. Unfortunately there are no prices at the moment.
