Free Four-Player Shooter Aegis Wing For XBLA

Microsoft is planning to give Xbox Live users a nice little bonus in the coming weeks by giving away the Carbonated Games-developed shooter Aegis Wing for free. A press release snuck out on Microsoft's own Gamerscore Blog earlier today describing the Xbox Live Arcade release as a four-player "2-D side-scrolling space shooter that combines epic space combat with fantastic visuals... set to a rich symphonic soundtrack." The release has been removed and replaced with information on next week's release, Soltrio Solitaire.

The story is too old to be commented.

Was sooooo looking forward to this until I read that its for North America only. I'm hoping the rest of us will get this (for free) at some stage as well.

I grew up on sideways and vertical scrolling shoot-em-ups. Xenon, Xenon II, 1942, Hybris, the R-Type series, etc, etc. I wish someone would release a next-gen sideways scroller with all the bells and whistles!

sweet deal.
btw xbla should implement a bonus system like this more often. the more xbla games/themes/pics purchased, you should be rewarded with something, like more points.
