I know, but the game came to xbla later, so should be little cheaper imo. Trials Evo offers fuckload of content + some amazing level editor, but cost 1200MSP.

It's $27 USD. 1600 MSP is cheaper. Not that I really understand that logic anyway.

Minecraft got to 1.0 version last November... I don't think MS sells beta versions yet :P (well some games feel like that anyway... but that's like another story)

I dunno how well the game is going to be supported. I mean if the stories about patching fees is real...

Trials Evolution = GOTY!!

So Minecraft really is coming to 360, holy crap. I thought it just be another Conan MMO and Kingdom Under Fire that would just never happen.

strange people would think PD0 was actually rushed.. specially considering when development started and for what machine, sam as kameo.

I don't think it means much when it was started. It was still rushed for launch. Then again I don't think any amount of polishing would have made it a good game :P

In case people haven't figured it out yet Microsoft are releasing a lot of their exclusives, that would normally be disc-based, on XBLA as they're pushing digital distribution which is why some people still seem to think there aren't many non-Kinect Xbox 360 exclusives due out this year. (That plus the there are still obviously disc-based exclusives due out this year that haven't been announced yet since that happens every year. Also I'm including console exclusives like Witcher 2.)

Here are the disc-based exclusives that have been announced for this year:

Akai Katana

Forza Horizon

Halo 4

Phantom Breaker

Witcher 2: Assassins Of The Kings

Also Captain Blood and the new MechWarrior game were meant to be console exclusives for the Xbox 360 but their websites only say PC now. :(

Here are the Xbox 360 exclusive XBLA games out now or due out this year that have either been confirmed to be big disc-based-style games or definitely look like they are:

Alan Wake's American Nightmare

Bloodforge

Class 3

DeadLight

Fable Heroes

Happy Wars

Hybrid

Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise

Lives And Death

Minecraft

Sine Mora

Trials Evolution (It's a LOT bigger than Trials HD and isn't just about motorbikes and making bike tracks, it's in fact like Little Big Planet 2 as
you can pretty much make any game with it. For example there's a vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up and FPS game featured in the main Trials Evolution trailer. Check out from 01:29 onwards: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LeDh6p0S6I )

what the hell is Fable Heroes?!
“Fable Heroes” on Xbox LIVE Arcade is an action-packed hack-and-slash adventure set in the “Fable” universe, it is a fresh spin on the franchise, taking playful competition to the next level with four player co-op, time trials and leaderboards on Xbox LIVE. In “Fable Heroes” players work together to defeat enemies while also competing with each other to collect gold coins, which will level up their character and unlock unique items in “Fable: The Journey” when it launches later this year.

Where did that come from?
Lionhead Studios.

What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And plenty of those examples are online PVP games too. Quake Champions probably isn't one of them :D (36 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: No, not really. There are loads of examples of games with microtransactions that don't influence the game design or pollute the basic user experience. (37 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Could you imagine back when arena shooters like Q3A were very popular, and the cunts introduced pay to win bollocks like EA, 2k, Activision et al are doing? Imagine what that would have done. (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite meanwhile on the other end, some kid who just bought the game is playing as Wigan, but they're playing like Real Madrid and giving your superstars a tanking. Time to dip into your pocket to buy packs (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Online play is so heavily scripted, your team inexplicably feels like a bunch of fat pub players in a sunday league side, and you're supposed to be in control of world class athletes (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I mean, if you look at Fifa online, I've been saying for years that thing is a fix and my mates looked at me like I was mental. (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: But you know it will in some shape or form. It hurts the game by default just by being there in the same way microtransactions and all that other shite does. (3 Hours ago)
