Windows Phone gamers have been anxiously awaiting the start of the 6 Weeks of Must Have Games promotion. It was initially thought to begin in April, but then we learned it had been pushed back to an unspecified date. Shortly thereafter at MIX 2011, Joe Belfiore announced that Angry Birds would come out on May 25, so everyone assumed that the Must-haves would roll out then.
As it turns out, May 25 does indeed mark the start of the 6 Weeks of Must Have Games. But Angry Birds won’t be next week’s Xbox Live release after all. Instead, that honor goes to Hydro Thunder Go, the only Windows Phone-exclusive title in the Must-Have lineup. Leading with the strongest title is a smart idea, as Hydro Thunder Go has some great buzz surrounding it. Hydro Thunder Go will launch on May 25 at the very fair price of $4.99.
But that’s not all! We’ve got the full Xbox Live release schedule for the next 6 weeks, including prices and screenshots. Head past the jump for the exciting details.
Hydro Thunder Go – May 25, $4.99
Doodle Jump – June 1, $2.99
geoDefense – June 8, $2.99
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I – June 15, $6.99
Plants vs Zombies – June 22, $4.99
Angry Birds – June 29, $2.99
The prices are pretty much as expected on these games. Sonic 4 is the most expensive of the bunch, but previous high-profile console ports have been $6.99 too (see I Love Katamari and Pac-Man Championship Edition DX). At any rate, Xbox Live fans have plenty to look forward to in the month of June.
