Soon, Xbox Live users will be able to download entire Xbox 360 games to their hard drive. According to BioWare, their sci-fi RPG Mass Effect will be one of the first titles available through the Games on Demand service.
I already have it . But i guess this is good for other xbox 360 owners ..... Why couldn't Ms and Ubi put splinter cell :conviction for download.... -_____-
I doubt you'll see day and date releases for quite some time. Don't want to piss off the brick and mortar stores, after all.
I don't think it's that unlikely to see console games available digitally on day one. It's already pretty common with PC games and console developers are pretty ticked about used game sales.
That's because stores have gotten to the point where they don't give a flying f*ck about PC games. Console software, however, is a money maker for them.
At least they could give us the E3 demo.
Microsoft already said that's not there plans for Games on Demand and probably never will be as they don't want to piss off retailers plus its a complicated thought process for publishers business wise etc etc. Wonder how the PSP Go will fair
Microsoft really said that ?
wonder how these games will run from the HDD. The Xbox Originals weren't too great
Yeah....you even commented on the same submission: http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... -_-
LOL! Sorry . You can see i do forget things at times .
This is pretty badass. I hope to see more games on soon.
I hope Crackdown will release my copy is getting old.
I wouldn't be surprised if that was a launch title for Games on Demand, too. Game's been in stores for a long time.
it takes requires 10-20GB on downloading.
Most 360 games are 6 to 7 gbs in size. Mass Effect is 7.6gbs.
They announced that Mass Effect was one of the Games on Demand launch titles at E3. It was also reported several weeks ago that August 11th would be the date of the dashboard update that brings Games on Demand. old news
hopefully wont be too big or else its fail
Probably between 5-7 gigs for these games. All the games I've installed on my HDD have been about that. MS really needs to drop the price of their HDD's or make it so people can put there own in(fat chance on that one) because it's to their benefit that their customers have large HDD's so they will buy this stuff.
forget it then i only have the 20 gig and not going to get ripped off buying one of their hard drives ever really 120 gig is the same price as a terabyte on amazon get out of here microsoft
You can redownload any game you download on Xbox Live . It`s connected to your gamertag digitally .
I personally enjoyed mass effect more than any ps3 game I have ever played.
Same Uncharted was fun but I blew through it in like 8 hours.
like this is gonna happen. ill believe Me coming to Live when Ms have a huge announcement at E3. i mean how are we suppose to believe one stupid intertnet post. ill wait for an official anouncement from MS. ive never even heard of GoD.
Have you been living under a rock?
There was a major announcement as part of Microsoft's Keynote at E3.....and I second Kigmal, how's that new rock working for ya?
If you don't believe Microsoft or BioWare, then I'm not sure what to tell you. We'll send a burning bush your way.
kissmeimgreek, do you not pay attention at all. Microsoft DID announce Games on Demand during E3 and I know a person that was there that saw a demo that included Mass Effect. Mass Effect is absolutely coming to Games on Demand on August 11th and it will cost $20
Recommend this game to any sony, nintendo, microsoft fanboy. It has awesome story line, and you have total control in conversation with different races and explore worlds, and tones of side quest.
agree, but i refuse 2 play the sequal with wrex dead! :(
Would want to Corrupt Their Hardrive By Downloadin that Crap
yo ugly ass mamma would you dumb b!tch
I corrupted your mother's vag*na last night. It was splendid.
still don't see how this would work with the old games when you can get them at a much cheaper price, and as for the new games would they release on day to compete with retail??
Price? If it's not like $10 it's not worth it. You can buy this game used at any gamestop for really cheap now. They only give you like $4 if u trade it in
I already have the game n is awesome I need mass effect 2 now!!!!
not on my tiny 20G disk, on my launch unit. Good going MS...way to plan for the NEAR TERM future and than try to rip me off with your stupid prices for your accessories (HD)....fools
Cool, i rcently bought this game for £8, new. LOVE IT, cant wait for 2-3 and see how my actions pan out (like punching a reporter, which shocked me as i thought he was just going to shout at her)
