Hackers leak tons of unreleased Xbox Live Arcade games

Digging around in the cover art files for Xbox.com has revealed over a dozen unreleased (and some unannounced) titles. Included among the previously unknown titles are Double Dragon II (Double Dragon Neon was released last month) and Star Wars First Assault.

Other titles — like Toe Jam & Earl, Retro City Rampage, and Karateka — have all been officially confirmed by their publishers. Sega’s HD remake of Nights into Dreams comes out this week, and GamesBeat can confirm the cover art discovered by the hackers is legit.

... still no Shenmue HD.

that one is still coming out so its more a matter of being patient.

Funny thing is, some of those I've already heard about. Not sure why this is being sensationalized as a "leak" when most were already on the road to release.

Some look pretty obscure and as such they dont garner as much focus when they first get announced. Yet ones like Nights and Toe jam and earl and many others have been known about for a while now.

Maybe with the passing time we forget about them and then something like this happens and we think these are leaked titles??? IDK.

Everyone needs to forget about shenmue. It's just not going to happen.

Or maybe it is a PSN exclusive and it is set for release on November 26th. :D:D:D
OK, too late now, psyched myself up and now just have to wait and get disappointed for the 50th time.

Gonna go plug in my DC and play Shenmue I&II now. ¬.¬

Majors1332d ago

Commandar_Shepard1333d ago

Any sign of a Shadow Complex 2? What about a revival of a Rare franchise? Castle Crashers 2? I want these so bad.

da_2pacalypse1333d ago (Edited 1333d ago )

Sadly, while Rare is owned by M$, the words: Rare and Revival are an oxymoron :(

wastedcells1329d ago

yes, yes it is, the market place has no security.

Laxman1333d ago (Edited 1333d ago )

Yeah, there's no security at all! Its disgusting, hackers stole the uploaded cover art of upcoming games by messing with an internet URL on thier computers!

Whats next, stealing the emails, addresses, full details and credit card numbers of up to hundreds of thousands of users and having the service shut down for weeks non-stop?! Will when the madness end?

hackers, advertisements and cross-game chat

This just goes to show that "the digital age" will bring huge problems with it!

Gamer19821332d ago

But, but, but the xbox fanboys keep saying only ps3 has no security! lol

Seriously though developers will see this though and in future think twice about releasing games on xbox live.

The names of unreleased arcade games was leaked?

I've completely lost trust in Microsoft. I'm switching.

NonApplicable1333d ago (Edited 1333d ago )

Can't tell if sarcastic or if fanboy

guitarded771333d ago

Awesome... some interesting looking games there. I can't wait to see something on Star Wars First Assault. I hope it's their answer for the Battlefront demand.

memots1332d ago

Nah it's more starwars dance kinect. Assault stands for assaulting even more you nostalgia of starwars and how it use to be awesome until I saw bobs fett girate around with some storm trooper .. I real starwars game right there.

maniacmayhem1333d ago

Retro City Rampage!!!

Guilty Core Plus!! Now please!

Redgehammer1333d ago

XBLA is always, as the kids say, bringing it.

YodaCracker1333d ago (Edited 1333d ago )

Definitely! Just look at all the critically acclaimed Xbox LIVE Arcade titles this year! Fez, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Mark of the Ninja, Trials Evolution, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Spelunky, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition... This year has seen LIVE Arcade's best lineup to date. They are miles ahead of the competition!

KingMe421333d ago

By miles ahead you mean doing what Sony has already been doing for a few months?

insomnium21332d ago

@kingme

I think he means MS brings them more arcade games than competition.

I'm not sure about Sony's offerings in PSN. I've been too busy with exclusive retail games to care. Kinda puts Yoda's comment into perspective.
