I've attached a link to a version of NESCafe that works through Media Center on the Xbox 360. This is currently setup to run at 480p (Widescreen). You can edit the nes.htm file if it does not fit correctly on your screen. I haven't found a way to add a menu for the roms list so you will have to edit the nes.htm and change to whatever Nes rom you want to play. I've included a Public Domain rom for testing but have verified Zelda1-2, Excitebike, and TecmoBowl and all worked.
INSTALL: You will need to extract the rar into C:Document and SettingsAll UsersStart MenuProgramsAccessoriesMedia CenterMedia Center Programs on your media center box. It took a bit for the icon to show up under More Programs but it finally will.
NOTES: Sound is not functioning, Media Center 2005 is required. If it locks up you will need to run something that warns you that it is a web page and check the box that says "Don't show this again". Once you do that it should run fine. I created an MCL that just went to Google and then checked that box. I've also attached an image with the mapping of the Xbox Controller to the corresponding keyboard keys.

Ubisoft has confirmed that a GRAW demo is headed to the Xbox Live Marketplace. They have not however provided anymore details such as what kind of demo (single player or multiplayer) or the release date. The full game is slated to ship on March 7th, so I would image the demo to be out a few weeks before that.
Original game creator Patrick Buckland and his team at Stainless Games has taken the classic Crystal Quest and rejuventated it - making it faster, sparklier, crazier, and with more color than ever!
What's more, as well as offering this great new next-gen version of the game with all-new graphics, special effects, sounds and gameplay enhancements, fans of the original will find they can also play Crystal Quest in classic ‘old-school’ style as well.

As usual you can download a free demo with the full version costing 400 marketplace points ($5).
