Just days after it finally confirmed the long-rumored price cuts to all three Xbox 360 models, Microsoft has announced a series of more minor discounts. This time, it's for downloadable content on Xbox Live Arcade, including expansions and add-ons to a number of very popular games. According to Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, the lower rates will continue through the end of October as part of the "Extended Play Download Days" promotion.
Among the DLC items now on sale is The Shivering Isles expansion to Bethesda's acclaimed role-playing game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which now costs 1600 Microsoft points ($20), down from 2400 ($30). The Bring Down the Sky mission to BioWare's Mass Effect is now 300 points ($3.75), versus 400 points ($5.00). Three Guitar Hero III track packs--Def Leppard, Foo Fighters, and Classic Rock--are 360 points ($4.50), down from 500 ($6.25). Content for Lost Odyssey, Beautiful Katamari, and Forza Motorsport is also on sale.
