Microsoft Reveals Winter XBLA Lineup

Although Microsoft showed a handful of Xbox Live Arcade games at this year's X06, the company never reveals the order or timing of its weekly releases.

In a marketing email today, the company unveiled at least six games that will definitely hit XBLA by early 2007. Those games are Lumines Live (which hits XBLA Wednesday morning at 1 am), Contra, Gyruss, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, Mutant Storm Empire, Small Arms, and several others (that it didn't reveal).

Count on IGN to review Lumines Live tomorrow.

Contra will be fun but I think the fun will be for about five minutes until I think about the other 55 times I beat it over the last 15 years but Paperboy has more of a lasting fun to it. In my opinion of course.

Marriot VP6256d ago

did anybody play the Moses game for NES, that game was bumpin.

Mikey_Gee6256d ago

Not bad enough the 360 has that many AWSOME games coming out that I need 2 more jobs to keep up, but not the XBLA titles are also going to start cutting into my money stash !!!

Nice work MS

I love XBLA

FKN Unbelievable6256d ago (Edited 6256d ago )

The 7 Best Xbox 360 Games - Console Exclusives Win the Day

The Xbox 360 was a fantastic console in its day with some truly classic titles, but what are the seven best games for the console?

DrDoomer1d 2h ago

I'm pretty used to these lists being bad, but this one is particularly s#ite.

raWfodog18h ago

I think Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon should have been added to the list.

BrainSyphoned1d 2h ago

I'll go with,
Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Culdcept Saga, Shadow Complex, Ace Combat 6 with the flight stick,A Kingdom for Keflings, A World of Keflings.
Bonus Kinect Games: Happy Action Theater and Sesame Street.
*Skyrim was so bad on PS3 that it almost deserves to be #1*

I really loved Shadow Complex.

P_Bomb16h ago

Ah yes, Shadow Complex! Good indies back in the day. Summer of Arcade. I enjoyed Trials Evolution as well.

DeusFever1d ago (Edited 1d ago )

Was this made by a.i.? No human being would put Shadowrun, Fable III, and Splinter Cell: Conviction into a list of the 7 best Xbox 360 games.

Abnor_Mal23h ago(Edited 23h ago)

Would love to play Ace Combat6 on PlayStation, but Xbox decided to buy exclusivity and keep it off a competing platform.

The only mainline game I never played except for one level at a friends place. Game sold less than any other in the series if I remember correctly.

360 had Namco hitters AC6 and RR6... both quality titles. You should at least bust out the 360 for AC6 if you can score the flight stick. Its great.

When the current gen XBOX offering is so lacking people need to refer to games released two generations back....

It's a nostalgia peice same reason we get thousands of YouTube videos on sega genisis. Something people have fond memories for but the era is long gone.

It's xboxs golden year imo it was their genisis years the time where they stuck it to the market leaders Sony.

They stuck nothing. Sony screwed themselves giving Xbox an opening. They would have gotten the usual smack down if the PS3 had launched at $399 and was easier to develop for.
