Some of the Xbox 360′s most popular games are being heavily discounted this week. The goal appears to be to keep consumers focused on Microsoft’s current console as hype ramps up for the upcoming Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4.
The bargains, which Microsoft is collectively referring to as the Ultimate Game Sale, will be unveiled this week. That said, the first game to be discounted hasn’t yet been announced. When that changes, word will come from Microsoft Xbox Live spokesman Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb via his Twitter account.
While we don’t know how much each game will cost, Hryb has revealed the list of games that will be discounted. As you can see below, it’s no chump list. Some of the games — including Crysis 3 and Forza Horizon — are less than six months old and among the highest-rated titles currently available for the Xbox 360 console.
Without further adieu, here’s the list:
Assassin’s Creed III
Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway
Command and Conquer Red Alert 3
Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga
Dragon Age Origins
Far Cry 3
Far Cry Instincts Predator
Gears of War: Judgement
