Xbox Live Arcade boxed
With the Xbox Live Arcade slowly but surely winning over gamers and the pundits, Microsoft appear keen to continue the service's increasing notoriety in the ether beyond the Xbox Live online service. Thus we hear talk of Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged, a boxed version of the most popular games from the service, bundled together in a pack for about 20 GBP.
Geometry Wars Evolved, Texas Hold 'Em Poker, Bejeweled 2 Deluxe, Outpost Kaloki X, Wik: Fable of Souls and Hardwood Backgammon are all included in the 'Unplugged' package. A one-month free Xbox Live 'Gold' voucher will be included, as MS bid to recruit new subscribers using the lure of the Arcade's numerously addictive small games. The 20 GBP box should be in shops in September, we'll keep you posted on all the latest Live service news.
