The Xbox Live Summer of Arcade for 2013 has been announced and the prices revealed.
Starting on the 7th of August Xbox Live users will be able to participate in the Summer of Arcade promotion. In past events Microsoft have rewarded participants with Microsoft Points in return for purchasing two or more games in the promotion, this year the bonus is slightly different.
Instead of offering points, users will be rewarded with a Souls Pack for Ascend: Hand of Kul. Offering something different has sparked a few rumours across the internet; some say this is because Microsoft is ditching the Points system for real money, which was revealed not too long ago. There are also rumours of this being the very last Summer of Arcade for the current generation.
The first game will be available on the 7th and that will be Brothers: a Tale of two Sons which will set user back 1,200 Points.Charlie Murder will be the second game in the Summer of Arcade promotion and that will be available on the 14th for 800 Points.On the 21st we will see Flashback hit the Marketplace for 800 Points. Flashback was originally released in 1992 and this is the HD remake from Ubisoft.And last but not least the fourth game in the Summer of Arcade is the highly anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows which will be available on the 28th.
