Xbox Live Arcade Heads To PCs By Year's End


I love announcements for announcements’ sake. Microsoft said at Gamerfest that it will, somehow, someway, release Xbox Live Arcade for the PC in time for the holidays. It didn’t say how it plans to implement this feature into its nascent Live for PC offerings—what games will be available, will already purchased games be transferrable and/or playable on the PC, etc.—but we do have confirmation that it’s going to happen. The excitement is palpable.

Truth be told, when I do play Xbox 360, I am primarily on Xbox Live Arcade, Street Fighter II and Castlevanie mostly. (That is, until Halo 3 comes out.) Whether or not I play Live Arcade on the PC depends largely on whether or not Microsoft tries to charge me again for the privilege.
