Images of Missile Command

Images of Missile Command

Atari recently announced that they'll be releasing six Xbox Live Arcade games, six Atari classics, next year starting January. Here are the first images of Missile Command, from both the Classic and Evolved modes. The images were released in 1080p resolution, so could this possibly be the one of the first 1080p games on Xbox 360?

How dare ye, Missile Command is awesome. And in 1080p? WOW!

It should be much easier to make arcade games render in 1080p with any loss of performance since they're less complex to begin with.

We have no confirmation at all though. I don't know if I've ever seen Microsoft release 1920x1080 images, either they're 1280x720 or in like 5120xsomething (same with Atari). This is a new for me at least.

very colourful, not sure if this'll do well though.

This game was only any good with a rollerball control.

AT least it's a classic game with fresh design. I hate this old-school pixelated arcade games. I want new games like MS oder GW.

This actually looks really cool. I'd throw 400 points at it.

XNA games as this XNA-Racer already works in 1080p

Who cares if its in 1080p? It looks the same in 1080i...-_-

with this kind of graphics, why even care if its in HD?, much less 1080P or not.

i've had fun playing the game without a rollerball. i mean rollerball is definiately ideal, but there is still fun to be had without one.

I'm inclined to agree. It's a shame we got a button in the middle of the 360's controller instead of a rollerboll :(

Sometimes I really like how simple games look when they are redone in a new way. This looks cool.

I love Missile Command, it's an absolute classic. I just can't see how you can play it properly without a trackball though.

Its RaceCars its not a public game but its the first XNA dev sample that will be 1080p on the 360 which is the first from what one of the xna team said for the 360.

As for missle command ME'S EXCITED.

This is a SERIOUS issue with the Atari releases for XBLA. Warlords is hands down my favorite Atari game--but I'm not sure how it will play without paddles. Hopefully it translates well. Centipede as well, would work much better with a trackball.

Virtua Tennis and NBA Street are already 1080p on 360

About the game

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (11 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (14 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (17 Hours ago)
