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.
