Microsoft has kicked off a new promotion today, thanking its fans with a laundry list of discounts on a wide variety of content. Some of the highlights include reduced prices on Xbox Live Arcade titles such as Super Meat Boy and Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 for 400MS points ($5) a piece, and much more.
