It's been a while since Microsoft last branded an Xbox Live Arcade title an Arcade Hit. However, if the publisher's own Web site is to be believed, it appears as if a trio of long-standing XBLA titles is poised to be added to the discount program.
With Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe out next week, Microsoft will be giving 360 gamers a cut rate on Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. The online-enabled arcade fighter garnered solid reviews when it scrapped its way onto Microsoft's online platform in October 2006. Joining Midway's fighter will be Team 17's over-the-top annelid arms race Worms, as well as Oberon Media's casual action title Feeding Frenzy.
Currently, all three titles still bear their original 800 Microsoft points ($10) sticker tag. However, Microsoft's Web site indicates that once the official Arcade Hits branding goes into effect, they will drop to the budget-line 400 Microsoft points ($5) price. As of press time, the publisher had not responded to requests for clarification as to when the price will be enacted.
