Submitted by Microsoft to the BBFC, the following URL lists the contents of the Disk included on the 360 Arcade. Rumor was that it was only demos but from the link, it appears there is quite a bit of content.
That list sort of...sux.
Pac Man CE and Boom Boom are really fun games... Luxor 2 isn't bad and Uno is great fun if you have the people to play online. I don't think it's bad at all given the fact that they console now has a wireless controller, included memory card, and some games thrown in for a price that competes with the Wii...
I see Leon came back and disagreed with us. How mature.
They are arcade games... 5 free games (granted arcade titles) 5 demos and a few trailers. Cant really complain about that.
Don't worry about it. Just take down his bubbles.
why would you do that? he was merely expressing his opinion. I myself was quite underwhelmed by the list. They've clearly been limited to U games so that anyone can buy it, and that's affected the quality of games available.
The bubbles are about getting rid of posts of poor quality, blatant agressive fanboyism (usually coupled with the first one), insults and swearing. If he had said something like "omg that list was total **** the crapbox 360 is totally ****ed now!" Then sure, take away bubbles, but not if you just disagree with their opinion.
I don't personally see why you should care anyway, assuming you already own a 360.
I'll pass. I could see this appealing to the younger crowd though.
..."Boom Boom Rocket" in New Zealand yet. All you can get on XBLA is the theme for this game!
To be honest, they should have included Lumines and Geometry Wars over Luxor 2 and Feeding Frenzy. Pac-Man CE is a fantastic twist on the original Pac-Man and will provide many hours of fun.
That there is more than just the five Arcade games on the disk:
00:03:18:00 WELCOME VIDEO
n/a PAC-MAN CE
n/a BOOM BOOM ROCKET
n/a LUXOR 2
n/a FEEDING FRENZY
n/a ZUMA (TRIAL)
n/a MARBLE BLAST ULTRA (TRIAL)
n/a 3D ULTRA MINIGOLF (TRIAL)
n/a FROGGER (TRIAL)

n/a VIVA PINATA
n/a SURF'S UP
00:01:07:00 VIVA PINATA
00:01:34:00 SHREK THE THIRD
Three entries have duration data; they're obviously videos. Five entries are clearly marked as trial games.
And there are the five previously rumored full Arcade games.
But there are also entries for Viva Pinata and Surf's up. They're not videos. Its not likely they're full versions...?
Just not sure what the difference would be between a demo and a trial version... ;-)
Not that it makes much difference; its not a bad combo to send after the Wii.
a 360 with the same pricing as the wii and has a steller line up of games.
