With Summer of Arcade entering its second week today some people might be looking at the list of releases and thinking about the hurt it will put on their wallet. Four of the five games releasing during the Summer of Arcade are $15 and last weeks ‘Splosion Man was $10. Add that all up and your dropping $70 on XBLA games, ouch.
Apparently Microsoft also understands this may be a little high. Today they announced a new promotion for Summer of Arcade. Purchase all five games and they will drop 800 back into your account. To be eligible for this promotion all you have to do is buy all five of the Summer of Arcade games before August 31st (and be a US citizen) and the space bucks will be delivered to you.
Its nice to see Microsoft covering part of the cost but lower pricing on some of the games in the first place would have been a better surprise.
