XBLA slashing prices

Small ArmsSomewhere along the line, publishers lost sight of the fact that Xbox Live Arcade games are supposed to cost $5-$10. Not simply a flat rate of $10. For this reason, it’s really nice to see the already low price of a couple games get lowered even more.

Small Arms, Zuma Deluxe, Gauntlet and Dig Dug will all be available for half of their listed price point.

I don’t honestly think I would pay to play Small Arms no matter what the price, but Zuma is a decent enough game, and Gauntlet/Dig Dug are arcade classics that still hold up today (in a sense.)

From the Press release:

Small Arms – 400 Microsoft Points (normally 800 Microsoft Points)
Easy to pick up but hard to put down, "Small Arms" is a frantic multiplayer action game with the feel of an arcade shooter.

Zuma Deluxe- 400 Microsoft Points (normally 800 Microsoft Points)
Explore more than 20 realms in Adventure mode and put your skills to the test in this fast-paced puzzle game.

Gauntlet – 200 Microsoft Points (normally 400 Microsoft Points)
The original dungeon crawler lets four adventurers explore and fight together as a warrior, valkyrie, wizard, and elf.

Dig Dug – 200 Microsoft Points (normally 400 Microsoft Points)
Experience the fast-paced action of this quarter-cruncher from 1982 as you take control of Dig Dug himself and vanquish Pookas and Fygars.
