First 'Games on Demand' titles launch

Console Monster writes: "The first titles have launched for the Xbox 360 Games on Demand. The seven titles are now available to Xbox Live members that were fortunate enough to obtain a place in the Preview Program. What's interesting about the titles is the game's pricing, which is listed in pound and pence, rather than in Microsoft Points. The titles currently available are as follows:

Call of Duty 2 - £19.99
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - £19.99
Need for Speed Carbon - £19.99
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga - £19.99
Mass Effect - £19.99
Viva Piñata - £19.99
Assassin's Creed - £19.99

The remaining Games on Demand titles, revealed yesterday, will be rolled out over the next few days, before the new dashboard update is available to all Xbox Live users on the 11th August..."

anybody know if this games is reigon locked ?
I mean i cant download movies/original xbox..etc from the US marketplace outside the US, is it the same?

juanvan3086d ago

And is that price right 20 euro? that would be like 40 US.. I think something is wrong with that pricing.

You guys can't download those games over seas. It might be the same that would suck, but you will know for sure in 4days.

Grown Folks Talk3086d ago

are $29.99 US. A few, like Mass Effect & Carbon are $19.99. Only credit card for purchase at the moment, no points. Largest files I've seen are just over 6 gigs.

dragunrising3086d ago

I hope that most of the releases are $20. $30 is a little too much. Also, I may need a larger hard drive than 120 GB...:-p

Mass Effect is $ it

Grown Folks Talk3086d ago

For those that don't like to buy used, some of these titles are hard to find new any more. Plus, there's those who just don't like being around other people. Already have Mass Effect. If Assassin's Creed was $20, i'd probably get it.

I just noticed below the purchase info that you can hit the y button to switch between cc & points.

Assassin's Creed
GOD Price: £19.99 Price: £8.99 (Disc based, so can be re-sold)
Saving: £11

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
GOD Price: £19.99 Price: £13.48 (Disc based, so can be re-sold)
Saving: £6.51

Lego Star Wars : The Complete Saga
GOD Price: £19.99 Price: £14.99 (Disc based, so can be re-sold)
Saving: £5

Mass Effect
GOD Price: £19.99 Price: £11.50 (Disc based, so can be re-sold)
Saving: £8.49

I think I can see a major flaw in this idea.

Yes but your method requires me to have to rely on the postal service and considering there's a strike on I'll download it and have finished it before your copy even arrives.

Granted, it costs a little more but it does mean I can play it immediately.

Scarfy3086d ago

They're not exactly small downloads, though. So I hope you have a good provider, otherwise it could take just as long.

Who are you with?
