Xbox Live: Open For Business

November 15, 2005 - Finally Microsoft has made public the complete inventory of Xbox Live Marketplace content available at launch on November 22. Thankfully, there is a ton of free content available like music videos and game trailers, as well as interactive demos for FIFA Soccer 06, Road to the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Kameo: Elements of Power, Peter Jackson’s King Kong, NBA Live 06 and Need for Speed Most Wanted. It doesn’t take a genius to see that Microsoft is offering all this wonderful content so you buy their stuff, but it’s really a win-win situation for the consumer so you can try a lot of these games before you buy. As for pay content, Microsoft is using a Microsoft Point system as currency. At retailers or via the Xbox Live Dashboard, you can purchase 1,600 Microsoft Points for $19.99 to use toward the purchase of gamer pictures, themes and game downloads on Xbox Live Arcade. So the question remains. What exactly does 1,600 points get you? Well, Midway’s arcade classic Gauntlet cost 400 points, or roughly five bucks. Also priced at 400 points are Bejeweled 2, Geometry Wars Retro Evolved, Joust, Robotron 2084 and Smash Tv, among others. We’ve got the complete list of all available items, straight from Microsoft.
