Xbox Ultimate Game Sale Due to Kick Off

Posted by Ken Barnes

Starts on February 26th

Major Nelson has announced that Microsoft will be holding a little bit of a sale next week, with Games On Demand titles going for firesale prices.

Each day from Tuesday, 26th February, a new batch of titles will be discounted - apparently with most discounted up to 75%, and some ranging up to 85%. The sale is open to all levels of Xbox Live account, too.

The Major himself will announce a new batch of titles each morning, so it might be worth falling in line and following him on Twitter. It might be time to put a few pound notes aside, as over 60 titles will be included, and there are some decent highlights on the list - especially for the FPS and fighting game crowds - which is below:-

Assassins Creed
Assassins Creed 2
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Batman: Arkham City
Borderlands 2
Call of Juarez

...and a partridge in a pear tree.

Admittedly, a fair few titles are overpriced to begin with on Games on Demand when you compare them to store prices, but Left 4 Dead 2 is listed at $29.99 right now. 75% off that would make it around $7.50. That's a steal by anybody's standards. Go on, Microsoft...

OMG awesome deal. I just got paid today too and I was thinking of picking up a couple 3DS games think I will hold on to my money and wait to get some of these. I have been wanting to get Left 4 Dead 2 and Borderlands 2.
