Commanders on Xbox Live Arcade

Commanders on Xbox Live Arcade

Discs of Tron was last week announced as this week's game to be released on Xbox Live Arcade, but here is another one. Sierra Online and Southend Interactive launch Commanders: Attack of the Genos, a turn-based strategy game with support for up to 4 players on Xbox Live. The game will cost 800p, and more information and screenshots can be found inside.

This looks pretty cool, but I find myself wondering what happened to the 400 Point games, I think I expect more for my 800 points these days (since rez! - even if it was a port)

I really don't get all this. Basically there never was any 'original' gamesfor 400 points, sure, there were some exceptions, but 800 points have always been the main price point for these sort of games. 400 points is most used for old retro crap, and Disc of Tron is heading our way on Wednesday so be sure to pick it up if you really wanna experience 400p priced games.

The 400pts games are pretty much gone since enough people eat up this crappy prices.

Yes quite, 400 pt games have got the reputation as being crappy, so people have avoided releasing games at that price break. 800pts is getting very nearly a standard now.

this looks kinda toony and bulky

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (15 minutes ago)

    scoobs0688 Scorpio will be nice and all, but if you don't have the software then ultimately nobody will care outside the hardcore who are buying it regardless. (23 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Microsoft just needs to develop some new original IP and quit relying on Forza, Halo and Gears to carry them. Those franchises just don't have the pull they once had. (24 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @Moonwalker: If the Scorpio gives you the best console versions of multiplatform games and you're already into the XB1, then it's probably not a bad idea. After all, most games are multiplatform. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I absolutely love TES but at the same time I am exited to see a brand new IP from that studio. I'll just expect TES VI on Scorpio and Pro's successors, lol. (2 Hours ago)
