Oblivion Horse Armor On Sale For Twice The PriceS

Bethesda has cut the prices of its Xbox 360 downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion by half for the next week, except the Horse Armor Pack, which is going to cost you.

It's been nearly three years since the April 3rd 2006 release of Oblivion's Horse Armor Pack, and Bethesda is doing it up in true April Fool's style, slashing the prices on nearly all of the Xbox 360 downloadable content. The Shivering Isles, Knights of the Nine, The Vile Lair...all available for half off for the next week, with one notable exception. Bethesda's Pete Hines explains.

In celebration of the arrival of April, the wackiness of April Fool's Day, and the upcoming 3rd anniversary of the release of Horse Armor (Friday, April 3), we are pleased to announce that for the next week all Oblivion DLC for Xbox 360 is half price, except for Horse Armor, which is twice as much as usual.

A quick glance at the Xbox Live Marketplace Oblivion page confirms it - the Horse Armor Pack now costs 400 Microsoft points. My suggestion? If you've not gathered all the expansions for Obivion, grab them now, and as always, pass on the horse armor.
