Battlewagon and two more Xbox Live games on Windows Phone drop their prices

Battlewagon, Deer Hunter, Glyder price drops

A short while ago, the prices of seven Xbox Live titles permanently dropped to 99 cents each – the lowest a paid Live game has ever cost. But seven games was not enough for some people. “More!” you cried. Microsoft and a couple of publishers heard your cries, and now three more games have dropped to 99 cents.

Now, I'll abstain from commenting on the quality of these games, but the lower prices should certainly make them more palatable... Especially Deer Hunter 3D, which launched at $4.99 even though the iOS version has long cost 99 cents. And it has one broken Achievement which Glu Mobile officially decided not to fix. Okay, so I picked on one of the games. I do it because I love you guys. If you’ve been looking cheap games to play, at least your options continue to expand.

Thanks to TNTJudbud for the tip!

I noticed Wordament on the Xbox Live list but it doesn't have the Xbox Live branding on it

There was an article on it getting an update on April 25

Glyder is such a great game. Not for the causal gamer thou.

evilrobot says:

I loved glyder!

Hiiiiiiiii says:

Just give me PayPal or MS Points Support, please.
Also, what's up with "geoDefense Swarm", which was announced 4 months ago?

theman60099 says:

MS points are being abolished

BKsInBarre says:

Yeah what is up with MS not using MS points?

BKsInBarre says:

You have Xbox Live support why not, Zune support bring the points over.

AriesDog says:

Adding my voice to the Microsoft Points chorus. Sprint doesn't support charging apps to the phone bill and I don't want put my credit card in any of my devices (Xbox, iPad, etc.). After the PS3 credit card disaster last year, who can blame me.

Now waiting for Gameloft to reduce the price for Let's Golf 2. Samsung is better because even for its bada platform, they offered it for free. Microsoft really needs to spend some in this regards as well.

theman60099 says:

What the fuck dude,you want a free game now? I bet you also probably ask McDonald's for a free big mac

tractakid says:

"Glu Mobile officially decided not to fix"
What?! When was this said?

Paul Acevedo says:

I keep meaning to run an article about it... They told me directly.

MrSean490 says:

Man I'm probably gonna start sounding like a hater and I hope I don't but I'm really glad I can pay for things for their exact value rather than buying MS point packs and always having left overs etc.
I can agree with paypal support though, absolutely.
and I also understand the reservations of entering CC details.

erwt says:

Agreed on everything, I don't own an Xbox so ms points isn't very optimal for me. My bank provides really nice and safe ways of using a credit card online but PayPal support would be nice, indeed.

GLU is the worst game maker on wp7. They don't care about their games on this OS one bit

CJ Thunder says:

How about MS fixing Revolution? If MS won't do it, no one will!

HD7guy says:

Maybe I'm one of the few, but I am very glad Microsoft handles my app charges. I do not want anything but phone charges on my phone bill. I like to keep things separate, so that I can nip extra charges in the bud ASAP.

Gemini Ace says:

I hate Glyder so much.  Never got passed the first level.  Something about finding the last gem or whatever and the fan would never come on to let me get it.  Awful, awful game.
