XBLA gets DOOM today, Soccer later

Id software's classic first-person shooter DOOM will be available for download on Xbox Live Arcade today for 800 MS points ($10 US). The game will include the full, four-chapter single player game. Co-op and deathmatch modes will be available via split screen or online via Xbox Live.

Coming soon will be Sensible World of Soccer, based on the 1994 Amiga title of the same name. The game will allow you to play with the original graphics or an "updated, high-resolution look and feel."

No word yet on a ranking system. Scott Henson, Director of the Game Development Group at Microsoft, did remind us that all Xbox Live titles are required to have a leaderboard. How players will be ranked, however, has yet to be determined.
