Huge “Countdown to 2013” marketplace sale begins December 18

In a blog post he’s since deleted, Xbox Live Director of Programming, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, announced the “Countdown to 2013” sale for the marketplace. The sale, which begins on December 18 and runs through December 31, will see discounts for a raft of content from certain franchises and publishers on both XBLA and the wider marketplace.

Although the official page has been pulled, the folks over at NeoGAF managed to compile a reasonably comprehensive list of the titles to go on sale and the date their discounts will take effect. Unfortunately, Major Nelson never revealed the discounted prices at any stage. But if you hope to catch any of the games or DLC in the list below for cheap, it may pay to stock up on MSP!

However, the fact that the official page has been pulled (even though most of the details are out in the wild) has us at least a little concerned, so maybe try not to pin all your hopes and dreams on the “Countdown to 2013” sale.

The full list of currently known discounted XBLA items follows:

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown screens showcase new characters

Virtua Fighter 5 was first released in 2006. Since then it’s seen multiple iterations. The newest of those is Final Showdown, which could be defined as the ultimate version of the game. When Final Showdown released in the arcades in 2010 it featured new animations and character costumes. Also included were two new fighters, Taka-Arashi who hasn’t been playable since VF3, and Jean Kujo, a character introduced in Virtua Fighter 5 R. As far as XBLA fighting games go, this looks to be the definitive version of the game. Sega had this to say on the matter.

“Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown is the definitive version of the Virtua Fighter 5 series, incorporating all of the enhancements the arcade team has rolled out since 2007[.]”

“Final Showdown makes significant improvements to the fighting mechanics and adds new single player and online modes while maintaining the series’ classic balance and precision.”

Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown is slated for release sometime later this year. Until then whet your appetite on the above trailer (courtesy of GameSpot) and additional screenshots after the jump.
