Permanent XBL Reductions for June 2013

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
E3 is nearing the finishing post and the onslaught of news is nearly finished. June seems to have marked an onslaught of permanent Xbox LIVE discounts too. A lot of this content was marked down earlier in the month but the rest has only been reduced during E3. Two games get further permanent reductions but the rest is new to this list. We also realised that we had failed to report May's single permanent discount, so we've included that one in this list too. Here is the list of discounted XBLA games:

Alan Wake's American Nightmare - 1200 MSP 800 MSP
Boulder Dash-XL - 800 MSP 400 MSP
Hybrid - 1200 MSP 400 MSP
ilomilo - 800 MSP 400 MSP
Karateka - 800 MSP 400 MSP
Quake Arena Arcade - 800 MSP 400 MSP
Shred Nebula - 800 MSP 400 MSP
Space Channel 5 Part 2 - 800 MSP 400 MSP

Final Fantasy XIII-2 arrived on Games on Demand this week. To celebrate that fact and the release of yesterday's DLC bundle pack, nearly all of the DLC has been permanently reduced to half price. Here are the new prices:

• "FFXIII-2 Pack: Fight In Style” – 640 MSP 320 MSP
• "Lightning: Requiem of the Goddess" – 400 MSP 200 MSP

Two weeks ago, EA declared that all of the existing online passes would be eliminated and would become free to download over the coming weeks. On May 30th, we provided a list of games for which the online passes had become free to download from the Marketplace. Others were available for no fee from the in-game menu. Since then, three more titles have seen their online passes turn into free downloads on the Marketplace:

Army of TWO: The Devil's Cartel
• "Army of TWO™ The Devil’s Cartel ONLINE PASS (PAID)" - 800 MSP FREE

NCAA Football 12
• "NCAA Football 12 Online Pass" - 800 MSP FREE

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14
• "Online Pass Paid" - 800 MSP FREE

As well as the advertised discounts, there are a few other pieces of DLC that have also received discounts too. These may be permanent (they've certainly lasted for more than a week) but I wouldn't wait too long to pick them up, just in case!

Brink
• "Brink™ Agents of Change" – 800 MSP 400 MSP (this has achievements)

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
• "Shivering Isles - 1200 MSP 800 MSP (this has achievements)

There are also Games on Demand included in June's list, but the titles and prices vary widely between regions. Please check the Recently Reduced section of the dashboard for the correct games in your region.
