Trendy Gamers: Dubbed ‘Arcade NEXT’, Microsoft will be releasing four back to back games starting this Spring on the Xbox Live Arcade. The games included are Trials Evolution, Bloodforge, Minecraft, and Fable Heroes.
Well, that's all very well and nice, except for the fact that this news piece doesn't actually give an exact release date for any of those games. Instead we're simply told that these games will be part of something called Arcade Next starting in "spring".
No offense, guys, but your news title is a bit misleading on that one.
EDIT: Glad to see you've fixed the article to include the actual release dates. Might want to add the prices as well, though.
Sorry, the site was having some issues but it's fixed and the dates are all up now. Enjoy!
... damn... I sure hope that's not going to be the new standard for XBLA games. I already feel 1200MSP is overpriced for many games. It usually means that I won't be buying those games at launch, instead waiting for a price-drop. I AM very very excited about Trials Evolution though. Loved TrialsHD and Evolution seems to improve on the first game in every department.
It it pretty much a full on retail game, I wouldn't worry about it becoming standard.
hey Deruy, news for you "buddy". MajorNelson is the OFFICIAL Microsoft Rep and his site is where this news came from. So, take you own advice.
Wasn't Play XBLA the OFFICIAL one to release this story not nelson? Anyway whatever, nelson's site is pretty crap anyhowz
Trials Evolution is going to be great!
Looking forward to getting my grubby little hands on Minecraft.
*dancing* Yes, yes, yes!
Microsoft arcade festivals are awesome
May 9th.... sigh
At least it finally has a date.
It's been delayed so it fits into Micrsofts Spring of games with a massive finishing title. As usual its a marketing ploy rather than pleasing the fans. (IMO)
I think Fabke Heroes looked awesome. Will pick this one up.
1600 MSP for Minecraft. Abusing it's large fan base much? Other than that, looks like a solid line-up.
Compared with the conversion to Euros; it turns out to be about $5 less.
I completely agree. The most any arcade game should cost is 1200 MSP. 1600 MSP is taking advantage
trials baby here we come
