Price Permanently Reduced on Three XBLA Games

By zigs00, 8 years ago
With no fanfare, Major Nelson has revealed that three successful Xbox Live Arcade games have all had their price tags permanently reduced as part of the Arcade Hits program. Both 3 on 3 NHL Arcade and Cloning Clyde have dropped from their original 800 MSP to a low 400 MSP, while the phenomenal Braid has dropped from 1200 MSP to a far more enticing 800 MSP.

Permanently. These aren't Deals of the Week or one time offers, nor are they exclusive to Xbox Live Gold users. These are now the prices for all three titles, from hence forth!

If you've yet to purchase the overwhelmingly amazing, gorgeous mind-bending puzzler Braid, not only do I hate you*, but I strongly urge you to click the link below and buy the game at its new low price. gives the following description of Braid:
Manipulate the flow of time. Rescue the Princess. Contemplate the world; save yourself. The full version of Braid allows you to visit all the worlds, and thus use all the time-manipulation powers. Perhaps you will find the Princess and rescue her.
