XBLA Black Friday Sale Clarified and Detailed

Following yesterday's somewhat hazy announcement of its 'Black Friday' discounts on Xbox Live Arcade, Microsoft has issued more details and revealed further deals via Xbox Live director of programming Larry 'Major Nelson' Hryb.

The sale will take the form of week-long discounts on a number of games, avatar items, downloadable content packs and movies, which Hryb fully revealed today, then Black Friday itself will bring a one-day "special" sale with "savings of up to 80% off."

While Microsoft told us yesterday that the deals would only be available to US customers, it was in fact mistaken. Except for video content, they'll be offered worldwide.

Though Friday's selection of deals is still under wraps, through comparing today's list with the offers revealed yesterday, we can deduce that we should see 'Splosion Man for 160 Microsoft Points ($2) and Trials HD for 400 Points ($5).

The list of week-long deals, ending on Monday, follows below:
