Cheaper XBLA games promo starts today [update]

Update: Doh! It looks like there was an early mistake in making the games 50% off. The discounted prices are now 25% off with Frogger and Hardwood Spades at 300 and Bankshot Billiards 2 at 900 Microsoft points. Come on Xbox Live guys, get your crap together!

Today is Arcade Wednesday and even though we aren't treated to any new releases, we do get a few Xbox Live Arcade games discounted. Starting today and running for a whole week, Frogger, Hardwood Spades and Bankshot Billiards 2 are all available for your downloading pleasure at newly discounted prices. And, unlike previously reported, the prices are even lower than expected! Both Frogger and Hardwood Spades are available for 200 300 Microsoft points (originally 400) and Bankshot Billiards 2 is only 600 900 (originally 1200), which makes these games half 25% off. Remember, the cheaper prices only last for one week, so if you've been eyeing up any of these titles or are simply interested in a new XBLA game, then grab 'em before the price goes back up. Oh happy discounted Arcade games day!
