The company says it’ll let developers do more with the service, while still keeping things manageable for players downloading the games over a broadband connection. It’s no co-incidence that Microsoft has also announced a new Xbox 360 memory unit with 512MB of space, compared to the old one’s 64MB.
For a limited time, the new 512MB unit will come with the excellent Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved game preloaded on it. In the US, the unit will cost $49.99.
At GDC, Microsoft is also showing off a bunch of new casual games for Xbox Live Arcade, including music rhythm game Boom Boom Rocket, online-multiplayer game Pinball FX, plus the likes of 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures, Eets: Chowdown, and Jetpac Refuelled.
