It's a very cool feature and I've downloaded most demos so far. Was kind of tempted to buy Marble Blast Ultra, but TBH I'd rather pay for and play full Xbox titles. Besides I have Mame on my PC and Xbox1 to play this kind of stuff for free...

I think you should add the option, "It's OK, but I've only bought Geometry Wars." or something to that effect. If they ever add the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from the Genesis/Super Nintendo era, I'll be all over that though. And maybe some Street Fighter.

Edit: Misspelling...

I think it's great in concept but can be and will be much better in 6-12 months.

And yes, I have bought a couple games, but to be honest I lost interest in them quick.

I think there should have been an option "It's okay and I have bought a game or two but it could be better."

Than again... As I already said.... It will be better. Much better. Forget SF2, I can't wait for Ultimate Mortal Kombat!

TOASTY !!!!

They're going to add Lumines and Mortal Kombat soon! I second that geometry wars comment, I am an addict.

I've had my 360 since day one and I just bought my first games on there this weekend. I bought Uno, Geometry Wars and I got a code off ebay for Bankshot Billiards 2 for $5. All the other games are not worth the price they want for them. If all were $5 I would probably buy Marble Blast as well. Uno is fun, simple and keeps you occupied for hours. I'd probably like GW if I were better at but for $5 it's not bad. Bankshot is pretty cool too, but not worth the $15 they want for it.

I'll buy Lumines when it comes out unless the want like $50 for it.

XBLA is unreal, I just hope MS raise their 50MB limit so companies like SNK would be more keen to come on board and release their games. Hell we could even get Daytona on there if they raised the max to their upcoming MU size of 256MB.

I love it! I read that 100 MS points equals 88 cents. So game that cost 800 MS points is about $7.04. I don't think that is too high. If they keep the games at that price I don't have a problem getting them. I have MAME and the other EMUS on my XOBX1 but I find myself getting more enjoyment out of my 360. I really like the HI DEF upgrades and the SWEET sound that the 360 produces for these games.

I have paid for geometry wars, uno (happily), wik (just for the multiplayer, which i never play sad.gif ) and smash tv (accidentally, my finger slipped, literally! but its fun with a friend so thats ok).

Uno is so fun. You can play for hours without noticing. What else is cool about it, is CHICKS! The first few nights i had the game, i played at least 1 chick a night. It was great, good to c the women getting into games! It seems to have died down now though, the game is losing its hype unfortunately.

My score in GW is 558k, i got it kinda randomly, no lead up, just did really well one day, now i can get 400k max.

But yeah, XBLA is awesome and can't wait to c it grow. I'd love to see jump n bump. It'd be perfect, as anyone who has played the game would know. If you don't know about it, google it, get it. It'd be sooooo perfect!

Just send MS' arcade department my idea. It has to be done, its just such a mad game.
