Xbox 360 Marketing Materials Revealed

According to online reports, an official Microsoft brochure detailing the full hardware and accessory line-up for the Xbox 360’s ’holiday season’ launch, as largely revealed at the Leipzig Game Conference recently, has been made available online. However, new details from the promotional hand-out have emerged on the content for the Xbox 360’s 20gb removable hard disc, which is included in the expanded $399 Xbox 360 bundle, but is optional for the $299 base model, and can also be purchased separately for $99. The brochure initially confirms that the hard drive comes bundled with "an Xbox Live Arcade game and more", and the hard disc accessory listing itself reveals the name of the game, Hexic HD, described as "a popular puzzle game". The title will likely be an enhanced version of MSN Zone and current Xbox Live Arcade puzzle game Hexic, in which you "create clusters of same-colored tiles to clear them from the board", and which was designed by Tetris creator and recently in the news WildSnake collaborator Alexey Pajitnov. Hexic takes the place of the initial Xbox Live Arcade free pack-in title Ms. Pac Man, and shows Microsoft’s commitment to the casual game service on Xbox 360, in which games are downloadable for online payments of $10-$20. Other confirmed or believed in development Xbox 360 Live Arcade titles include Pom Pom’s psychedelic indie shooter Mutant Storm, as well as former IGF winner Wik & The Fable Of Souls.
