Xbox Live Arcade gets second sale

Microsoft follows up Labor Day promotion's "half-off" specials with less drastic savings on more back-catalog games.


Microsoft welcomed September with its first-ever Xbox Live Arcade sale, and it's wrapping up the month in the same way. Starting Tuesday at 5 p.m. Pacific, Bankshot Billiards 2, Hardwood Spades, and Frogger will all see a temporary price drop. But unlike the half-off specials of the Labor Day sale, these price reductions will be more modest.

Bankshot Billiards 2 ordinarily sells for 1,200 Microsoft points ($15), but during the promotion, it will sell for 900 Microsoft points ($11.25). Meanwhile, Frogger and Hardwood Spades--each of which normally sells for 400 Microsoft points ($5)--will fetch 300 Microsoft points ($3.75) for the sale.

The price drops will remain in effect until 5 p.m. Pacific on October 2.
