Uno on Xbox Live Arcade

Uno on Xbox Live Arcade

I'm sure the vast majority of you people already know the card game Uno. A few weeks ago Microsoft announced that a Xbox Live Arcade version of this classic game will soon be available, and it's now playable on the Debug version of Xbox Live. Here is a video, showing the different game modes and how it's played. Surprisingly fun and well done.
Update 2: Uno is now officially on XBLA, so the video is back again.

I remember this game from when I was 5 years old. It was fun back then, and it looks fun now. This should be a nice addition to XBLA.

It's 60 fps, but I did not think it was worth the 30 more mbytes more :)

Very sharp, nice looking game. Nice addition to XBLA. Wonder if it will be out before Poker?

Where is the Poker game anyways?

Wasn't it due out in March?

Cool, used to play this for money at lunchtime in my old job. Until it started getting violent! Can you imagine that?

Sweet mamma-jamma! I can't wait for this to come out!

I play UNO! every other weekend. I love it!

Does it have an UNO! Attack! mode?

Uno rocks! Is it free? What games are free on XBLA?

I always thought XBLA would be a good way to branch out to more casual gaming. Once the 360 gets down into the $99-$149 range MS will have a product that will appeal to the Solitair-Hearts-Spades-Free Cell etc fanbase -- from the comfort of their living room.

Usually games appear on the debug live a few weeks before release. I don't know how long this one has been there though.

Ummm it's a card game. I think there are much better games they could put up than UNO. they need more geometry wars like games.
