id Games CEO Todd Hollenshead has revealed that the success of Doom on XBLA will determine future id releases on the service.

The story is too old to be commented.

I stopped buying from XBLA when I returned by faulty Xbox live and found that my family can no longer play the xbox live arcade games on their profiles.. Old story, beginning to sound like a broken record. But really, my ticket is still open with Xbox support since Feb.. tut tut.

Why don't they just play the games on your profile?

And it will stay there for ever. How else do you sudgest microsoft prevents people from distributing illegally the games?

Because they then can't compete with me on achievements for that games.. My kids used to love to do that. I also have a fully paid up Xbox live account, which he can't use to play online the same XBLA games..

who cares about achievements? the main thing about games is to have FUN..... competing about achievements is ridicules in my opinion, but I know there's many that just think about achievements, poor fellas

If people didn't care about achievements, then developers wouldn't be taking the time to put them in the games.

Part of the fun is actually gaining the achievements.

I know its your opinion though.

Also, if it adds hours of gameplay to a game to gain achievements, how is that a bad thing?

You dont buy a game to have the achievements in the game, that's idiotic. That's like, I'm gonna buy Madden 07 even though I think that sport is idiotic, but I want the achievements.. that dosent make any sense. And if you are bored of a game, one achievement is to play 100 hours, then you're forced to play a game you're bored of just to gain the achievements.


well, you could just get a gold account for all your household... my wife and i both use seperate gold accounts...
