I know, but the game came to xbla later, so should be little cheaper imo. Trials Evo offers fuckload of content + some amazing level editor, but cost 1200MSP.

It's $27 USD. 1600 MSP is cheaper. Not that I really understand that logic anyway.

Minecraft got to 1.0 version last November... I don't think MS sells beta versions yet :P (well some games feel like that anyway... but that's like another story)

I dunno how well the game is going to be supported. I mean if the stories about patching fees is real...

Trials Evolution = GOTY!!

So Minecraft really is coming to 360, holy crap. I thought it just be another Conan MMO and Kingdom Under Fire that would just never happen.

strange people would think PD0 was actually rushed.. specially considering when development started and for what machine, sam as kameo.

I don't think it means much when it was started. It was still rushed for launch. Then again I don't think any amount of polishing would have made it a good game :P

In case people haven't figured it out yet Microsoft are releasing a lot of their exclusives, that would normally be disc-based, on XBLA as they're pushing digital distribution which is why some people still seem to think there aren't many non-Kinect Xbox 360 exclusives due out this year. (That plus the there are still obviously disc-based exclusives due out this year that haven't been announced yet since that happens every year. Also I'm including console exclusives like Witcher 2.)

Here are the disc-based exclusives that have been announced for this year:

Akai Katana

Forza Horizon

Halo 4

Phantom Breaker

Witcher 2: Assassins Of The Kings

Also Captain Blood and the new MechWarrior game were meant to be console exclusives for the Xbox 360 but their websites only say PC now. :(

Here are the Xbox 360 exclusive XBLA games out now or due out this year that have either been confirmed to be big disc-based-style games or definitely look like they are:

Alan Wake's American Nightmare

Bloodforge

Class 3

DeadLight

Fable Heroes

Happy Wars

Hybrid

Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise

Lives And Death

Minecraft

Sine Mora

Trials Evolution (It's a LOT bigger than Trials HD and isn't just about motorbikes and making bike tracks, it's in fact like Little Big Planet 2 as
you can pretty much make any game with it. For example there's a vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up and FPS game featured in the main Trials Evolution trailer. Check out from 01:29 onwards: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LeDh6p0S6I )

what the hell is Fable Heroes?!
“Fable Heroes” on Xbox LIVE Arcade is an action-packed hack-and-slash adventure set in the “Fable” universe, it is a fresh spin on the franchise, taking playful competition to the next level with four player co-op, time trials and leaderboards on Xbox LIVE. In “Fable Heroes” players work together to defeat enemies while also competing with each other to collect gold coins, which will level up their character and unlock unique items in “Fable: The Journey” when it launches later this year.
