Microsoft is getting ready to kick off their annual Summer of Arcade promotion with what looks to be some really interesting games. The first of these titles to be released on July 20th, will be Bastion, and the promotion will be ending with the last title Toy Soldiers: Cold War which will be released on August 17th.
Bastion | July 20th | 1200 ms ($15.00)
From Dust | July 27th | 1200 ms ($15.00)
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet | August 3rd | 1200 ms ($15.00)
Fruit Ninja Kinect | August 10th | 800 ms ($10.00) | Kinect Required
Toy Soldiers: Cold War | August 17 | 1200 ms ($15.00)
If you were to purchase all five of the Summer of Arcade titles for 5600 ms points or $70.00, Microsoft will give you a game for free. That’s right, you must buy all five titles including Fruit Ninja Kinect, which means to even qualify for the deal you should at least own a Kinect. This unfortunately alienates a large crowd of Xbox 360 users from the promotion. That is unless you were waiting on Fruit Ninja to buy your Kinect. The free game that Microsoft is giving away with this offer is Crimson Alliance and it’s valued at 1200 ms.
Crimson Alliance | September 7 | 1200 ms ($15.00) or *Free with S.O.A. Promotion
