Long-awaited arrival of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 for Microsoft's Xbox 360 downloadable game service set for November.
A decade and change ago there were two fighting franchises duking it out for supremacy at the arcades: Midway's Mortal Kombat and Capcom's Street Fighter. Earlier this year, it was revealed that installments from both series would be released for the Xbox 360 on Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade service.
In August, Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting was released after fans were made to endure multiple delays. Meanwhile, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 has yet to be delayed, possibly because it has never had a release date any more exact than "by the end of the year." With 2006 heading into the home stretch, Midway has finally narrowed that window down a bit.
Midway today announced that Ultimate Utimate Mortal Kombat 3 would be available in November, completing a four-hit combo that also consists of the PlayStation 2 and Xbox editions of Mortal Kombat: Armageddon (being released this week and next, respectively) and the series' PSP debut, Mortal Kombat: Unchained. Midway has not announced a price for the game yet.
Microsoft have just released a nice little touch. How would you like to surf the web to view the latest Marketplace downloads?
Well as from today you can do just that, with Microsoft's new website entitled Xbox Live Pipeline. Updated daily with the latest downloads this could be quite handy for people at work wanting to keep track of the latest downloads.
And although you cannot download from the site, it still offers some useful functions like the Editors Choice where you can view the hottest downloads. And its a hell of a lot faster than browsing using the Xbox's interface. :)

Contrary to what TeamXbox said about OXM exclusively having the demo, Ubisoft released this press release this morning to let us know that users will be able to download the demo for Rainbow Six® Vegas.

The single player demo features part of the “Dante’s Casino” level of the single player mission. Players will Observe, Plan and Assault (O.P.A.) their way through the Gothic-themed casino that is under construction and believed to be a hideout for the terrorist leaders.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Vegas will ship worldwide this Autumn 2006 on Xbox 360, Games for Windows and the PlayStationÒ Portable (PSP™) while the PlayStation®3 will be available at European launch.
