By Rebecca Smith,
Microsoft are now permanently reducing some of their XBLA titles under the Recent Reductions promotion on the Games Marketplace. We announced three permanent discounts yesterday, but since that article, Quake Arena Arcade has joined the list.

Unfortunately, yesterday we also brought you the news of the removal of Marble Blast Ultra from the marketplace. Today we bring more sad news with the removal of two more XBLA arcade games from the marketplace: Diner Dash and Dream Chronicles. Both of these games were published by Hudson Entertainment, who are currently suffering financial woes and who closed the US branch of their studios back in February. The remaining four arcade games from Hudson Entertainment (Bomberman Live, Bomberman: Battlefest, Military Madness and Omega Five) are still available for purchase on the marketplace.
