Deal of the Week

Published on June 29th, 2011 | by Derek Strickland, Contributor

Select XBLA Titles Discounted in XBL’s DotW

This week’s Deal of the Week (DotW) on Xbox Live features discounts on select Xbox Live Arcade titles, including multiplayer hits like X-Men Arcade and Turtles in Time: Reshelled. Personally these are my favorite Deal of the Week sales, especially when premium Xbox Live Arcade titles are reduced in price at 50% off or more.

Check below to find a full list of the XBLA titles and their newly discounted prices:

Turtles in Time: Re-Shelled 800 MSP 400 MSP

“Relive, or discover for the first time, the flashy visual style and humor of one of the most acclaimed arcade games of all time. Starring Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo – everyone’s favorite pizza-loving, wise-cracking, reptilian crime fighters. The game has been recreated in beautiful full 3D HD graphics and enhanced animations but still has all of the favorite moments and gameplay from the original. Use pizza power-ups and huge body slams to make your way through history in an attempt to restore peace to the Big Apple.”
