Instead of heavily discounting games as part of the Xbox LIVE Deal of the Week, Microsoft has chosen to celebrate the July 4th holiday with slightly more fervor during the Xbox LIVE Ultimate Game Sale. Microsoft will discount a new slate of Xbox 360 titles each day. As of right now, users can pick up all of the following titles on sale.

For today only, all Xbox LIVE users can pick up Assassin’s Creed 3 for $14.99, Borderlands 2 for $9.99, Far Cry 3 for $19.99 and Max Payne 3 for $30.00. We’d suggest getting these right now, as Microsoft will put a different slate of games on sale every day until July 8th.

Some titles will be available at deep discounts throughout the entire promotion including Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway for $4.99, Far Cry Instincts Predator for $4.99, Crysis for $4.99, Command and Conquer 3 Red Alert for $4.99, WWE ’13 for $14.99, Mass Effect for $4.99, Prey for $2.99, Bulletstorm for $4.99, Perfect Dark Zero for $2.99, Dragon Age Origins for $4.99, and Divinity 2: The Dark Knight Saga for $4.99.

Of course, we’ll continue to post each day’s deals during the promotion.
