MS outlines XBL Thanksgiving deals

Fable II DLC, Death Tank, Sonic cheap.

On the fourth Thursday of every November, Americans celebrate Thanksgiving by feasting and frolicking. That time is upon us again, and so Microsoft has put some seasonal Xbox Live deals together for all regions to benefit from.

This weekend (starting today and ending Monday) the new social features -, Facebook, Twitter and Zune HD - will be usable by Silver Xbox Live members.

Next week Microsoft is going to snip the price of Fable II DLC See the Future from 560 MSP to 400 MSP (£3.40/€4.80), and the Death Tank cost from 1200 MSP to 800 MSP (£6.80/€9.60). The following week, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be available for just 240 MSP (£2/€2.80)!

Games on Demand will also grow, welcoming excellent trio Battlefield: Bad Company, Saints Row 2 and LEGO Indiana Jones on 24th November.

It's hardly Christmas.
