In the original message I find this one the most interesting:

"Also, our new press release has mentioned that Psychonauts is coming to XBLA as a classic Xbox download with the fall update."


Too bad it didn't get enough advertising. Check out the new game of the guy that made Psychonauts also. Brutal Legend. It'll rock again! Great humor. Download Psychonauts first. Really. It for sure will surprise you

Psychonauts is definitely the most underrated and best platform game. I'm definitely downloading that (and Carcassone too), but the Psychonauts news excited me more lol.

I actually AGREE with you on something... Psychonauts is an underrated GEM... and when you're looking for that... BUY BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL YOU SPITEFUL BASTARDS!!!!

I never played it?

8 Million for a "Fee-Based" service is not too shabby.

*I know it is not FREE but last time I checked the world is not perfect either.(for the PS3 fans out there)

This is still a business and MS is in it to make money somehow.

I would like the price of XBL to be cheaper, not because I wanna screw MS out of not making money from their service, or because I can't afford it but, I know some people that can't afford it.

Anyhow Free is what everyone would like in this world but things could be a little cheaper on XBL, that's my only gripe. More content is on the way which is good. I've never had any issues whatsoever with the service. I actually go on PSN and quite frankly PSN got a long long way to go.

listen to everyone above you. Buy Psychonauts. Just do it. They are right (yes, even theMART is right surprisingly). You're doing yourself a great disservice if you don't. It was supposed to be exclusive to the xbox but Microsoft dropped it like a hot potato and it went multiplatform.

my bad your right it was exclusive I had a brain fart at the time of that writing and when i tried to change it the site went down.
