Next Tuesday (that's August 11th), a dream we have long held near our hearts will be fulfilled -- Xbox 360
will add the first twenty-one titles to its Games on Demand
service. Now, we don't have any details about pricing for these yet, but Microsoft has said that the games, which include such august titles as Mass Effect
, Call of Duty 2
, and Tomb Raider: Legend
, will be priced similarly to the physical games. We could whine about that all day, but we're going to hold off until we see actual pricing details, and move on to dreaming of a trackpad that doesn't become unresponsive when we spill orange juice on it. Check out the video of the newest addition to the dashboard after the break, hit the read link for the full list of twenty-one.
A Microsoft spokesman just emailed us a list of the Games on Demand titles for the US, which has a couple of notable differences. BioShock
, Ridge Racer 6, Karaoke Revolution American Idol, Dance Dance Revolution Universe,
and Sonic The Hedgehog
are in, while SEGA Rally
and Tomb Raider: Legend
are decidedly Europe-only for now. Full US list after the break.
