A post on the Major Nelson blog has revealed that Xbox LIVE’s annual Summer of Arcade promotion will start next month, on July 18.
The deal will kick off with the release of the much-anticipated Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD remake, which will release exclusively for Xbox LIVE Arcade first before coming to PSN “a few weeks” later, according to the game’s official Twitter feed. From there, a new XBLA exclusive will drop each of the next four weeks, as Wreckateer, Deadlight, Hybrid, and Dust: An Elysian Tale will all follow suit.
Each of these five titles will run you 1200 Microsoft points ($15), save for Wreckateer, which will only set you back 800 MSP ($10). If you purchase any three of the five titles, though, Xbox will be dishing out 400 MS points ($5) for your services.
