The Xbox Live update is almost here, and along with all it’s great features comes one of the most innovative we’ve seen in online gaming. Microsoft announced that it along with all the other stuff it would be implementing instant downloads of popular Xbox 360 titles. While we have seen this a bit in the past with Xbox Live offering original Xbox games and PSN offering games like Burnout Paradise, this is the first time a company will offer a full library of current platform content on it’s online store.
What’s more interesting is the nice variety amongst the titles. Everything from the kid friendly Meet The Robinsons to the more adult titles like Rainbow Six Vegas and Mass Effect are here. Check below for the complete launch list.
Call of Duty® 2
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Fight Night Round 3
Kameo: Elements of Power
LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Meet The Robinsons
MX vs. ATV Untamed
Need for Speed Carbon
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
Perfect Dark Zero
Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis
TEST DRIVE: UNLIMITED
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas
Tomb Raider Legend
Viva Piñata 2: Trouble in Paradise
It’ll be interesting to see how well this plays out and what games will be offered in the future. With Microsoft still having only a proprietary HDD and a limit of 120 GB, will games like Blue Dragon or Lost Odyssey be made available?
