A brand new recreation of the cult-classic shooter created by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, “Rez HD” launches on Xbox LIVE Arcade and will be available from Wednesday, January 30 at 9:00 a.m. GMT (1:00 a.m. PST) for 800 MS Points.
“Rez HD” is a frenetic, wire-frame adventure set to industrial beats and rhythms that match the action.

Developed by Q Entertainment (“Lumines Live!” and “Every Extend Extra Extreme”), “Rez HD” for Xbox LIVE Arcade is a high definition update of the original game with brand new elements such as new visuals and sound effects. The game features five levels, each with its own unique visual theme, style and musical track, as well as three modes, including Easy, Main and Score Attack. “Rez HD” will be available worldwide for 800 Microsoft Points and is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
The guys over at Xbox 360 Rally have done a fantastic job and gone to all the effort of writing up a Complete List of FREE Xbox 360 Live Marketplace Downloads..
Kudo's must go to the guys for putting in such a great effort..
Please remember that this is a US-based list! If you live in, say, Canada or the EU and see items on here that are region specific.
The Xbox LIVE Marketplace is a true cornucopia of stuff. Whether it be classic arcade games like Paperboy, Time Pilot and Contra, or downloadable content for your favorite games, like Santa Claus outfits for Saints Row and expansions for Oblivion, Xbox LIVE is chock full o’ stuff for just about everyone. If you have the MS Points, you can open the door to all the world’s delight and joy.
But what if you’re broke? Are you just left outside in the snow, to stare in the window from behind the bushes to see all the joyous boys and girls playing with their horse armor and their extra Crackdown skins? Of course not! There’s stuff for you, too, cheap ass!
In fact, there is a LOT of free stuff for you. Whether it be extra content for your favorite game, or the most worthless of things (*coughgamerpicscough*), there is a surprisingly large amount of free stuff for your downloading delight on Xbox LIVE.
Representatives from Microsoft have announced new content packs for Q Entertainment's Xbox Live Arcade puzzler Lumines Live will be available June 27th, with proceeds from one pack going to climate protection charities to "combat our climate crisis."
Lumines Live will be receiving two extra content packs, the first of which is the 600 point ($8) 'Booster Pack', which will add 20 skins to the game's challenge mode, including 'Bloomy Girls,' a skin produced in conjunction with Japanese artist Masakatsu Takagi (as seen in PSP sequel Lumines II).
Also available will by the 'Tokyo Club Mix Pack' for 350 points ($5), which Microsoft says will bring four skins from the Tokyo club scene, including "Heavenly Star – SOS Remix" by Genki Rockets, "House66" by Sugiurumn, "4x4 Bricks" by Techriders and "Cosmic Humming" by Muku.
A portion of sales of that latter pack, otherwise known as the "SOS Charity Campaign Pack," will be donated by Q Entertainment to unspecified "climate protection NGOs and causes," as part of a tie-in with the Microsoft sponsored Live Earth music event.
That event, initiated by Al Gore will see 7 continents holding music exhibitions for 24 hours on July 7th, 2007, including Q Entertainment head Tetsuya Mizuguchi-produced act Genki Rockets performing at Japan's venue.
