Xbox LIVE Newsbeat June 12th-25th: Sonic on Sale

by on June 13, 2012

Xbox LIVE Newsbeat June 12th-25th: Sonic on SaleIn the run-up to the Xbox LIVE Summer of Arcade promotion, the Xbox LIVE Newsbeat is getting a bit quieter, and the big-name releases have been dying down somewhat – but we still have some big titles and sales making their way onto your consoles this week.

The main attraction this week seems to be a mega Sonic the Hedgehog sale, where several of the biggest Hedgehog games and add-ons are available at a reduced price. Along with that, another headline sale is the Games on Demand sale, where selected full retail titles will be available at a 75% discount.

New Arcade titles are Babel Rising – the tower destruction game – which you can read our review for here, and Magic 2013, an expansion for the Magic: The Gathering Universe. As usual, there is also a selection of Avatar items and new Zune movies for your viewing pleasure.

    That Sonic sale is pretty damn good – Also worth looking out for that 75% off Games on Demand sale, hopefully there might be some goodies!

    I’m utterly furious with myself for missing out on the Beyond Good & Evil discount. Sonic CD at 200 MS points looks good value.

    I swear they put BG&E on discount every few months, so I’m sure it’ll pop back up again next time. Sonic CD at 200 MS Points is a must-have for that price.

    Does anyone know what the games are in the  75% off and personalization sale?  Look how lazy and “Can’t be bothered” Microsoft are with not listing everything thoroughly.  They need to sort themselves out!!!

     I’d love to know this too, as the regular GonD prces are ridiculous,
    so 75% might make it somewhat worthwhile.
