Meet your Xbox Community Game launch titles
Posted by XanTium | November 19 18:27 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From arstechnica.com:


The New Xbox Experience has arrived today, along with the Xbox Community Games Platform. This new portal will offer countless games from independent developers that are moderated by the community, rather than Microsoft. We had a chance to play around with the Community Games prior to launch, and we have liked what's out there so far. Let's take a look at just a few of the games that you can scoop up at launch.

The Good
* Bloc (200 Points, $2.50)
* Lines (200 Points, $2.50)

The Bad
* Cubage (200 Points, $2.50)
* Space Combat (200 Points, $2.50)

The Strange
* Drift (400 Points, $5)
* Being (200 Points, $2.50)

community games is an amazing concept - just tried Bloc & Lines, & they're really good games.

i just wish they had achievements - maybe 5-10 (5G/10G) achievements totaling to 50G.

same here in germany.
seems that the community games are us-only.
well, that sucks a lot !!!
not only that we have a crippled video marketplace (130 films, no tv-shows/musicvideos, no netflix/vod), now we even have a crippled games marketplace.
thank you very much M$. mad.gif

heh... at least you have 130 films, the australian store has about 5 music videos, a few independent short videos (i dont know how long they've been there, we used to have nothing at all) and of course some game trailers.

the longer those corporate fools keep artificially dividing the internet into regions, the longer it's going to be before I start feeling guilty about downloading my movies and tv through bittorrent. oh well, their loss
