Games on Demand

Starting Thursday, you will be able to download and store game titles on your Xbox 360 or external hard drive. No disc necessary for gameplay. Titles will include Mass Effect, Assasin's Creed, BioShock, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. The average price is about $30 for a downloadable game, and you will be able to purchase games with Microsoft points or a credit card. New titles will be added every Tuesday.

You may not have to worry about losing your games either, since Microsoft says all your purchased games will be available for mutliple, and possibly unlimited, downloads. Games on Demand may also be portable, but Microsoft is a little fuzzy on this point. In the Xbox LIVE update notice, Microsoft says, "Download your purchased games to any console you are logged into with your Gamertag, and anyone else can play on the console that your game was originally downloaded to."  [PC World...]    [Comments...]
