Dashboard Update: Games on Demand & MORE - Aug 11, 2009

Tagged: Gaming, Live Marketplace, Xbox 360, Xbox Live,

The next Xbox 360 update is only just around the corner and we know Microsoft Studios are launching their new Xbox 360 "Games on Demand" service and some other cool updates but we haven't seen a full list of titles and features available until now.. Check out the full list below.

Less than a week from today, the Xbox LIVE summer update will arrive to more than 20 million Xbox LIVE members and with it will come the next evolution of connected entertainment on Xbox 360. Get ready to meet the many new faces of your Xbox 360; whether it’s new Avatar clothing and awards from Adidas or “Splosion Man”, or even a private home cinema, Xbox LIVE has something for you.

Movie night on Xbox LIVE
Browse, select and jump right into your favourite movies from the top genres: comedy, action, horror…even a tear-jerking chick flick. There are hundreds to choose from, with many in HD.

Avatars are people too!
Now thanks to Avatar Marketplace the options for customising your avatar are endless. With an ever-expanding selection of stores, full of premium outfits and accessories from your favourite games and fashion brands, you can express yourself through your Avatar like never before. Your Avatar’s one-stop-shop will launch with a growing collection from the top names in fashion and gaming including:
  • Top Brands: Adidas, Quiksilver, Roxy, Tokidoki
  • Unique Fashions: Steampunk, Recessionista
  • Your Favourite Games: “BioShock 2,” “Halo 3,” “Halo 3: ODST,” “Gears of War 2,” “Fable II,” “The Secret of Monkey Island SE,” “Splinter: Cell Conviction,” “Star Wars Clone Wars: Republic Heroes”
You can also earn special Avatar clothes and items just by playing your favourite games, starting with a hot logo t-shirt from “Splosion Man,” the hit Xbox LIVE Arcade title that kicked-off off the 2nd annual Summer of Arcade. And to keep your Avatars from getting bored, we’re giving them fun new props to play with; everything from a basketball to pompoms, even a mobile phone…just try to stick with nights and weekends.

Games on Demand marks the introduction of digitally distributed full Xbox 360 games: the titles you want, when you want them, straight to your Xbox 360 at the push of a button. You’ll also have the option to easily purchase Games on Demand titles directly via credit card.

There will be no less then 24 games available for digital distribution in the US and another 24 games available for EU using the "Games on Demand" Service . The dashboard update is set for release this Tuesday August 11th, 2009.

    Two more Xbox 360 games now $40?

    Two more Xbox 360 games now $40?
    Published by: forahobby on Thursday, June 08, 2006
    Tagged: Gaming, Live Marketplace, Xbox 360, Xbox Live,

    Online retailers mark down Condemned and Ridge Racer 6, but Sega says former game remains full price "as of today."

    When it was revealed that $59.99 would be the standard third-party price point for Xbox 360 titles, many-a-gamer lamented. After all, the cost of truly entering the "HD Era," as Microsoft executive J Allard once called the dawn of high-definition gaming, was already plenty high. Besides the $399 a premium Xbox 360 would set you back, gamers would also have to shell out at least $500 for an HDTV. That's not even counting the cost of a subscription to Xbox Live and high-speed Internet service fees for online gaming.

    Last week, 360 owners got some good news when a slew of 360 games' prices dropped to $39.99. Ubisoft cut King Kong's cost, THQ lowered the price of The Outfit, and Electronic Arts discounted (deep breath) Burnout Revenge, Madden NFL 06, NBA Live 06, FIFA Soccer 06: Road to FIFA World Cup, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06. They joined a growing catalog of games already priced at $40, such as the just-released Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis.

    Today came word that two more 360 games would soon bear a smaller sticker price. The online stories for GameStop, EBgames, Amazon, and Best Buy all list Sega's Condemned: Criminal Origins and Namco's Ridge Racer 6 for $39.99.

    But while Namco had not returned requests for comment as of press time, Sega did--to deny any price drop had taken place. "We are still at 59.99 for Condemned as of today," a rep told GameSpot. "Sega doesn’t have any product selling at 39.99 for the Xbox 360 at this time."

    Calls to several GameStop and EB Games locations added to the confusion. Clerks at both stores said that Ridge Racer 6 was indeed priced at 39.99 new, but that Condemned was priced at $49.99 new.

    Frame City Killer denied its Xbox 360 debut

    Frame City Killer denied its Xbox 360 debut
    Published by: forahobby on Tuesday, May 16, 2006
    Tagged: Gaming, Live Marketplace, Xbox 360, Xbox Live,

    Namco has announced that development of its Xbox 360 title Frame City Killer has been cancelled due to undisclosed development issues.

    Originally billed as the Japanese publisher's debut title for Microsoft's Xbox 360 console, Frame City Killer was initially scheduled for a release during the Christmas season of 2005 but the release was moved forward to this summer to allow additional development time.

    EA confirmed the cancellation to our sister site, Eurogamer, last week. A note on the Japanese homepage for Namco, which has been translated by Gamasutra.com reads:

    "Our Xbox 360 title Frame City, planned for a Spring 2006 release, has been cancelled due to various circ umstances. We apologise to everyone who was looking forward to it. Our company will continue to develop high quality titles for the Xbox 360 next generation machine, including a new RPG, which will be announced in the near future."

    The reasons for the cancellation of the game have not been disclosed, but Namco is set on continuing its support for the machine, backing up positive sales of Ridge Racer 6 with several new games and a host of arcade classics heading to the Xbox Live Arcade service in the coming months.

    Namco's Ridge Racer 6 is the worst-selling game for Xbox 360 according to sales data from market research firm NPD Group. The sequel sold 9,091 units in the month of November. By comparison Activision's Call of Duty 2, the top-selling Xbox 360 game in Nov., sold 250,730 units. In stark contrast, Ridge Racer 6 is the top-selling game in Japan at 29,891 units sold in the first two days of launch.

    XBOX 360 GAMES: the Good, Bad and the Ugly

    XBOX 360 GAMES: the Good, Bad and the Ugly
    Published by: hq_hacker_girl on Friday, December 09, 2005
    Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360,

    An Associated Press tech writer gives his impressions of the new 360 titles out.

    If you've scored an Xbox 360, some actual games are going to be the next logical purchase — unless you auctioned it off for thousands of dollars on eBay.

    We've worn our fingers to the bone the past few weeks (just for you) playing through the 18 titles available when the system launched. While the offering is diverse, many of the games are merely visually tweaked versions from the older consoles. Worse, Xbox 360 games can cost a whopping $60 — roughly $10 more than games for older systems.

    Here's our take, from best to worst.
