Lumines Live
is looking less and less like an XBLA must-buy and more like an annoying brother-in-law who keeps bugging you for cash. GamingBits.com gleaned that the game will soak you for 400 MS Point "Puzzle/Mission Pack" and a 300 point "VS CPU Pack," bringing the cost for the "full" game to a whopping $24. I guess we're supposed to be glad we're not paying $50 like the suckers who own PSPs. Luckily online play is free, if by "free" you mean 1200 MS points. Somebody remind Microsoft that the "pay only for what you use" logic that applies to cameras and external drives doesn't fly when all you want to do is beat the damn CPU.
