Friday has arrived, which means it's time for the final day of the Xbox Live Ultimate Game Sale, offering deep discounts on six digital games exclusive to today, as well as a collection of games that will be on sale through July 8.

I realize how that might sound a bit confusing at first. Today is technically the last day of the UGS, which means that the daily roster of rotating discounts will cease after this latest batch of titles hit their 24-hour mark. However, even thought the regular sales are ending, the 11 games that have been available since day one of the sale will remain available for another few days.

In case that was still too confusing, just do yourself a favor and buy anything you see below that catches your eye with a quickness, and then you won't have to worry about when the promotion ends. Instead, you'll just be playing a bunch of games that you got on extreme discount.

Each day of the Ultimate Game Sale has had something of a theme to it, but today's is somewhat harder to pin down. With the exception of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, I would have assumed that today's theme was just “games that came out pretty dang recently.” In other words, there are a lot more recent hits in today's lineup than you might have seen over the past few days of the sale, meaning now is a good time to stock up on a collection of games you maybe didn't think were worth the full price tag.

Today's offerings kick off with the one, the only, Bioshock Infinite. Join Booker Dewitt on his journey to the city in the clouds in order to retrieve a mysterious young woman in order to wipe away his dept. In this latest offering from Irrational Games, unique storytelling and fast-paced gunplay collide in a world overflowing with character and intrigue. For today only, you can download it off of Xbox Live for 33% off, or just $39.99.

If you're more interested in Lara Croft's origin story, then maybe the latest addition to the Tomb Raider series is more up your alley. It's also 33% off for one day only, marked down to $19.99.

Gears of War Judgement is another prequel joining todays sale, going for 50% off at $29.99. You could also pick up tactical shooter XCOM: Enemy Unknown marked down by 50%, going for $19.99 today only.

If you haven't sliced and diced with Raiden yet, then maybe Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will pique your interest. It's being discounted by 405, just $29.99.

Finally, for the hired thug in all of us, there's Hitman Absolution, marked down by a big 67% today and available for just $9.99.

If none of that manages to catch your interest, then there are still the continuing sales offered throughout the Ultimate Game Sale including the likes of Crysis, Prey and Dragon Age Origins. While the daily specials wrap up in less than 24 hours, the following sale prices are good through July 8.
