Day-one Game Room purchases come with exclusive item

Microsoft's old-school gaming hub Game Room is coming to Xbox 360 this March, and it's already been confirmed to launch with 30 titles.

While Microsoft hasn't nailed it down, it's eying a Thursday release for Game Room titles, so plan accordingly.

There's also going to be an incentive to pick up games the day they release -- a special item that will stay with you in your personal game room.

I wonder if any of the games they release potentially could be arcade games that we may have already bought in the past. And, if so will they be free.
