Assassin's Creed slays its own price as the Xbox Live Deal of the Week

 Today at E3 we had the pleasure of meeting a few of the fine folks at Gameloft. And what a coincidence, a Gameloft title is now the Xbox Live Deal of the Week. Assassin’s Creed is on sale for $2.99, down from $4.99. While it has experienced a price drop (down from a wallet-killing $6.99) and was part of last year’s Black Friday sale, this is its first official appointment as the DOTW.

Assassin’s Creed: Altair’s Chronicles (review) is a 3D platformer/action title set in the middle ages. With great graphics and full voice acting (though the acting is atrocious), it feels like a DS game squeezed into a mobile title (‘cause it is). The controls are fiddly and the platforming can be frustrating, but the story and action mostly make up for it.

Assassin’s Creed is on sale for $2.99 for one week only. Get it here on the Marketplace as you prepare for the upcoming console release of Assassin’s Creed 3 (pictured).
