Confirmed at this year's CES, Microsoft's Game Room will in fact be thesome kind of 360 version of Sony's HOME. Basically, players will be able to meet up and chat while playing retro arcade games, just like in the old days. Players will be given the choice to either purchase the full game for 240-400 Microsoft Points or pay 40 points for a single play. Not sure the concept will really appeal to gamers - see what happened with HOME - but at least, it will give us an opportunity to get our avatars out of the closet. Game Room should be available next Spring.
Watch out though, the centurion will make you toss your computer out the window. Borked af :P (3 Hours ago)
Still thousands of concurrent players though and plenty of viable matches. (3 Hours ago)
@Tiz: I haven't been playing it much but I am probably going to start digging into the new S2 content soon. The PC version is also still kicking but not with the massive numbers it launched with. (3 Hours ago)
Season 2 just started and the new characters are awesome. I haven't actually played them yet (launched in season pass) but they look great. (3 Hours ago)
