Just cause is pretty fun.

I just received my 360 today. Lovin' it for the most part. The marketplace kicks ass. I am downloading a crapload of demos as I type this. I previously downloaded the Burnout Revenge and MotoGP demos. They were around 700+ MB each and seemed to download very fast. Burnout looks a teeny weeny bit improved in the visual depatment, but not enough to make me buy it again. And it didn't seem to sound as good as the Xbox version. MotopGP looks great but it has framerate problems. It could use a bit more detail on the ground as well. Maybe next year.

Tons more demos downloading now. Rock on!

PS - Thread is now a sticky because I say so.

A guy got the DLC for Saint's Row early due to a Microsoft Rep's mistake. He posted videos on his blog.

I downloaded that Geometry Wars and it rocks. Now I want Geography Wars where little countries are attacking you. Anything else on the Xbox Live Arcade that I should look at?

I like Marble Blast Ultra, the demo has about 5 levels, try it. Its a bit like monkey ball but you control the marble rather than tilting the level. Street Fighter 2 is a must have imo

I loved the marketplace idea, I can actually download these stuff and also buy xbox live arcade games and download the updates. In fact I am thinking of buying the Xbox 360 soon, when I have enough money.

Over 50-Million Marketplace downloads served

The Xbox PR team just released some interesting data that I think some of you may find interesting. Check these numbers out!

* The Xbox Live Marketplace just passed 50 million downloads. That is double the 25 million mark from just three months ago.
* In the first week of Madden '07 releasing, Xbox Live members unlocked over 600,000 achivements and hosted more than 2-million hours of Madden gameplay.
* 'Texas Hold 'em' set a one day record as the fastest download item ever on the Marketplace. There were over 100 downloads a minute in the first 24-hours of release.

Other Xbox Live statistics:

* More than 50 million downloads of gaming and entertainment content from Xbox Live Marketplace to date
* Over 2 billion hours spent on Xbox Live by gamers across the globe since the launch of the Xbox Live online gaming network in November 2002
* More than 60 percent of Xbox 360 owners are connected to Xbox Live
* 1,300,000 text and voice messages are sent via Xbox Live every day. Currently totaling half a billion sent messages between the Xbox Live community per year, this figure is set to explode with the launch of the Xbox Live Vision camera on September 19, 2006 in the U.S.
* 65 per cent of all connected consoles already downloading and playing Xbox Live Arcade titles
* Over 8 million downloads of Xbox Live Arcade games following the launch of Xbox 360
* Over 2 billion Microsoft Points sold to date

That just show how little you know, I own all of these many games, so I know better then you, and I surly know better then call any console not from Nintendo crappy without any good quality games. I may not blame you for having such an idea, knowing how supreme Nintendo truly are.

In fact seeing the fall games list I think there are plenty of great games, way too much to list. As a gamer you?ll have to know quality when you see it.
