£5.00 pocket money & Stocking filler titles, like the good old £1.99 games from Mastertronic!

i think it encourages more people to buy these. Now you can see the accual prices right in the shops. And it's very attractive for shopholders to display cheap 360 titles.

Not a bad idea at all. I know a few people who haven't got access to live, and miss out on loads of cool little Arcade games like Outpost Kaloki X, Geometry Wars 2, Smash TV etc. Also Uno,which is a great party game with 4 people in the same room!

Good going Peter, but make sure Street Fighter 2 is available first eh!

You can't play same TV multiplayer uno. Simply because you would be able to see all the other players card!


hey, this is cool!

though i think i'll still download them.
