Massive Games on Demand sale starts up on XBL

Microsoft will be slashing prices, starting today, on some of the biggest games currently available in Xbox Live's Games on Demand service (including Halo 4).

The 'Xbox Ultimate Game Sale' sees some titles cut down as much as 85% off the asking price. It's not super clear right now, but it looks like new games will be rotated in and out on a daily basis, which kind of reminds me of the way Steam conducts its (in)famous seasonal sales. If Microsoft is planning on adopting a similar strategy, I can't imaging there'd be too many gamers out there who would complain.

Today, to kick things off apparently, is Halo day. Halo 4 is cut down to $39.99 USD, while Halo 3, Halo Wars, and Halo Reach are all sitting at only $9.99 USD. Good day to catch up with the Chief if you've missed a few of his go-arounds.

As for what else is coming down the pike, there's plenty- but if you're looking for a schedule you won't find one. What we do know, thanks to industry site MCV, is that the following titles will all be a part of the sale... at some point.
Assassins Creed
Assassins Creed 2
Batman Arkham Asylum
Batman Arkham City
Borderlands 2
Call of Duty 2
Call of Duty 3
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Call of Duty Black Ops 2
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Dirt 2
Fable III
Fallout 3
Fallout 3 New Vegas
Left for Dead 2

Orange Box
Portal 2
Resident Evil 4
Resident Evil 5
Resident Evil 6
Red Dead Redemption
Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution
Street Fighter X Tekken
Tekken 6
The Darkness
Tomb Raider Legend
That's a lot of 'triple A' right there. If a schedule is produced some time soon, we'll have it for you, but in the meantime just keep on checking every day and keep your eyes open for your targets from the above listing.

Good hunting.
