Xbox Live: Must Have Games 2012 schedule and prices announced

Must Have Games 2012

Last year’s Must Have Games promotion kicked off in May, but this year it’s coming in February. Since Microsoft announced the February lineup at CES, we’ve been left wondering over the specific release date and price of each game. Wonder no more, Windows Phone gamers, as Larry Hryb (aka Major Nelson) spilled the remaining beans on his blog today.

  • Need For Speed Hot Pursuit – 02/01 - $4.99
  • Bullet Asylum – 02/8 - $2.99
  • Chickens Can't Fly – 02/15 - $2.99
  • Splinter Cell Conviction – 02/22 - $4.99
  • Toy Soldiers Boot Camp – 02/29 - $2.99

No real surprises there. The two more technically impressive games will cost $4.99, not unlike last year’s Hydro Thunder Go. I’m slightly saddened that my most-wanted game, Toy Soldiers: Boot Camp is coming last, but they all look like fine games. If you need a refresher on the portable Toy Soldiers entry, check out our interview with the game’s developers.

Which game(s) are you most looking forward to, dear readers?

Toy Soldiers is the only one I'm all that interested it, I'm sad it's coming last as well.  Maybe they'll sync it up with a sale on the XBLA version, I'm dying for that game!

Can't wait for Need For Speed. About Splinter, from the logo I guess it's a Gameloft game. I wonder if it will be as buggy as all their other games. I'm still waiting for a fix on Brain Challenge which is almost not playable and has tons of broken achievements. I wish they would fix bugs on already released games instead of creating new games (most probably containing bugs).

Toy soldiers was awesome sauce on the 360 as is any splinter cell game just hope they both hold up on teh phone
