    1. Kameo: "Today a free download was released on the Marketplace that adds the option to play co-operatively over Xbox Live."

    2. Microsoft acquires Lionhead Studios

    3. Namco announces Mobile Suite Gundam for 360

    4. Namco announces Zegapain game for 360 (based on popular japanese anime of same name)

    5. Namco announces Culdcept for 360

    6. Tri-Ace developing for 360 (makers of Star Ocean, Valkyrie Profile, and Radiata Series RPGs)

    7. Square Enix announces sci-fi shooter for 360

    8. Namco announces Pac-man for Xbox Live Arcade

    360 gets a game based on a popular anime (Gundam)?? Square Enix actually develops anything for the system???

    EDIT: Okay, so I guess it's been known for... ever... that Square was brining FF XI to 360, so it's not quite as interesting there...

    Same question I ask about so many games... Co-op just makes a game better!

    yeah, also i have a likeing for sibling friendly co-op games, expecially 4 player, so if i'm at my friends house his little brother can play and not bug us all the time and not screw the game up if he dies (ala lego star wars)

    sonic games with tails are a perfect example of this.

    Ooh! Co-op. I like Co-op. Well, Streets of Rage 2 multiplayer :D

    MS acquires Lionhead?! That is bloody huge news. I think. Just pray they don't go the way of Rare!

    That's sad, since Peter Molyneux has been proclaiming how much he wants to develop for the Revolution because of the controller, and now his company is 360-exclusive.

    Also, Hudson is putting their games on XBox Live Arcade...TRAITORS!

    Haha, yeah... but I wonder what existing games? Or perhaps something new/original?

    Hudson games seem to usually be like something you'd see on Live... Bomberman, Harvest Moon, etc...

    Ubisoft also announced an Xbox 360 exclusive game with Naruto. Seems like Xbox is going for the Japanese market really strongly now.

    Excellent. The mind patrol will be pleased that the brainwashing has taken and that any 360 news is, in fact, bad news.

    Carry on, minion!
