Xbox 360 spring sale is on, but it doesn't feature the best bargain on Xbox Live right now

Batman: Arkham City and Arkham Asylum are $4.99 each if you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber.

There's an Xbox 360 spring sale on! Only, the best deal on Xbox Live right now has nothing to do with Microsoft's Xbox 360 spring sale. Instead, if you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you can pick up Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City for $4.99 a piece as part of a weekly deal. Both are certainly worth a punt if you're yet to play them and you enjoy having fun.

Highlights of the actual (less good) Xbox 360 spring sale are Borderlands 2 for $6.99, the Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag season pass for $13.39, and Saints Row IV for $14.99.

There's also discounts on a chunk of DLC, including for Saints Row IV, Dead Island, Dishonored, Borderlands 2, Skyrim, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, Thief, and State of Decay. Discounts range from 33 percent to 75 percent: check out Major Nelson's blog for a full list of what's on sale.

These deals are valid until April 21, Microsoft adds.

Or you can get Batman Arkham City (including catwoman DLC) completely free this month through Sony with a PS Plus subscription.

Baffling comment. How hard did you have to work to make huge discounts sound like a bad thing?

It could be worse, you could pay retail. I'm glad Sony's success with PSN sales forced MS to run these deals.

Picking up SR4 for sure. It's been on my radar for a while but i didn't feel comfortable picking it up at full price since it doesnt look much different than SR3.

It's quite a lot different to 3 don't worry. All the 2 games share is the map :)

I hope the Dishonored DLC comes on sale for PSN soon, £8 a piece is quite a lot for 4/5 maps.

Actually, I just saw it was on sale in March. Pity Gamespot couldn't bother to report on it so I missed out. Lazy.

Batman Arkham is free for PS Plus this month. Works out that I was one of the only people on the PLANET to have not played any of the Batman series. Hehe

Which Arkham game is it though? Because if you're starting with Origins that's the worst possible way you could start the series.

My moneys waiting for trials fusion in a week or so, can't wait to play that game. The custom tracks people make are better than the campaign tracks.

If I didn't already own (and beat) both of these Batman games, I'd be all over this.

You can get Arkham City GoTY for that price on Steam when it's on sale.
