Square Enix Kicks Off Massive Xbox Live Sale

For the next week Square Enix is offering almost its entire catalogue of Xbox 360 games and DLC for 50 percent off their standard prices.

It seems that every week a new, impressive sale crops up on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Publishers love the digital distribution scheme because it completely negates distribution costs. As a result, even massively discounted titles will generate a profit. Knowing this, it comes as little surprise to see publisher Square Enix offer a swath of generous discounts, but few could have anticipated the size and scope of the firm's latest promotion.

We'll get to the full, extensive list in just a moment, but first a few highlights.

While most discounts in this sale are a simple 50 percent off, a few titles have received even deeper discounts. The excellent Deus Ex: Human Revolution, for instance, is now available as an Xbox Live On-Demand title for a mere $15 -- that's 60 percent less than its standard price. Likewise, virtual Hong Kong action flick Sleeping Dogs has been marked down to a very tempting $20, while Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days can be yours for only $10.

But it's not just full games seeing huge discounts. This sale also applies to downloadable content issued by Square Enix. All of the DLC for Sleeping Dogs has been discounted by half, along with offerings for Just Cause 2 and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.

Have a look at the full scope of the deal and try not to go too overboard on your purchases. The sale ends on March 18, so you've got a few days to decide which games and DLC are really worth it. All prices are listed in terms of Microsoft Points, unless otherwise noted.
