Sensible Soccer a possibility on Xbox Live Arcade

Codemasters has said it's evaluating the possibility of bringing some of its IPs to Xbox Live Arcade. Although Sensible Soccer 2006 received mixed reviews, an aspect everyone was disappointed not to see was the inclusion of the classic Sensible World of Soccer. According to a senior source with ties to Codemasters, there were plans to include "the Amiga version of Sensible World of Soccer as an unlockable aspect of Sensible Soccer 2006," but in the end it didn't happen.

All is not lost though. The source also told Eurogamer that Codemasters "wants to do a rewrite of SWOS for Live Arcade."

Sensible Soccer on the Amiga rocked big time. Man I lost my fingers almost on playing that game too much back then.

Would be fun to go back in time with this game on MP Arcade

Maybe to show the BC Xbox Team your support, like i did. Your call. ;)

81BX1922d ago

Virtua Tennis 4, please - latest tennis efforts still seem shonky..!

sizeofyou1922d ago

And Grid Autosport... $25? Way too steep when there's so many racing games to choose from for current gen... 🤔

DaFeelz1922d ago

$25 BUCKS?!?! I love me some Grid, but that’s a big NO right there.

Fingers crossed I get an Xbox one s for my birthday. I've already started getting a few BC games already like lost oddeaey

ps360s1922d ago

Lost Odyssey is a great choice!

Loved it and wishing for a sequel or prequel after completing the game I wanted more!!!

Father__Merrin1922d ago

i had an xbox one s last year that i got for my birthday collected a huge collection of BCC titles it was great but had to sell it to get iphone for daughter for xmas lol il get collecting again need to get hold of blue dragon thats imo the best bcc game as it feels like a remaster locked at 30 with higher sample rate

I remember playing Sensible Soccer on the Amiga back in the 90's. That game was legendary for its time. Couldn't play it now though, can't deal with the graphics.

Still waiting for Eternal Sonata. :(

There was once a time when other football games existed other than the annual FIFA/PES war. Here's a look at 3 such gems.

Will next-gen gaming kill couch co-op?

GamePointsNow takes a look at just why couch co-op could soon be a thing of the past thanks to our new shiny consoles.

This and last gen pretty much already started killing it off already.

Mr_cheese3519d ago

It really dissapoints me that couch co-op/ split screen is slowly dissapearing. I really liked going to a friends house and chilling with beers and doing nothing but rotting on split screen. I understand the whole online co-op and all, but i still like the option to see and play with friends in person. I would really love more support. When resistance first came out on ps3, split screen for that was epic!

Chrischi19883519d ago

This is why it is not next gen for me... I want choice between online multiplayer and local multiplayer, having just one of the two, is bad, even though, I would choose local over online anytime. I am not a big fan of sitting alone at home playing games online against people I dont know.

webeblazing3519d ago (Edited 3519d ago )

Its already dead. Its funny because this one of the main reason to game on consoles now its fading away. Fast I might add. I dont remember the last time I seen local coop. It one of the reasons why mostly playing on PC Dont bother me, that and the ton of games plus the gfx . Oh n free mp

Chrischi19883519d ago

True, consoles become more and more like PCs, but all act like its better on PCs, then if you ask why this console is better than the other console, they mainly say things, which were PC things.

It won't kill it off, but it will cause the customers who want that experience (for instance, the Wii crowd) to leave the market. X1 is poised to be the best couch co-op system in the regard, what with Kinect being integrated and all. But the price and brand image won't give it the same oooomph as the Wii had.

ZodTheRipper3519d ago (Edited 3519d ago )

lol wut? Even though I _completely_ disagree with the Kinect part I have to add that I enjoyed PlayRoom more than any Kinect game on X360. I still have a few videos of us messing around with the PlayRoom and we even watched them a second time because it was so fun.

UnholyLight3519d ago

I refuse to let the Halo online splitscreen drinking games die out!!!!!!!!!

chrissx3519d ago

I just hope somewhere somehow it doesn't. Last gen started it and its so frustrating really. It should be standard requirment for a co-op game

king_george3519d ago (Edited 3519d ago )

Couch co op is the first thing i look at when a game says "multiplayer" on the box lol. I feel like couch co op is coming back strong actually. You just need to know where to look.

-Double dragon neon (beat this with my gf. Fantastic game i loved it)
-Dead nation (co op at its best in my opinion)
-Resident evil 5/6 (they kinda suck but still fun with friends)
-CoD (yeah i know its CoD but its still fun with friends too)
-Uncharted 3 (fun as hell to play with a friend)
-Diablo 3 (havent played it yet but i know i'll like it)
-Borderlands series
- Gears of War (not big on the series but people love it)
- Dragons Crown
- PS All stars battle royal
- Donkey Kong
- Mario
- LittleBigPlanet
- Guacamelee

webeblazing3519d ago

That list Dont look like a come back . Old game remakes, old games, and genres that expect to have local coop(sidescrollers) do not equal. Most maybe Dont want to spend time and resources on it especially how console gamers are starting to care more about gfx.
