This is straight up going to be the best update ever. Ok picture being able to download original Xbox games right to your 360 like they are game demos! The full game will be able to be downloaded. Theres a short list of games that will be available so far, but one sticks out a lot. That game is Halo: Combat Evolved. The original Halo game will be available for download in the newest Xbox 360 dashboard update. This is crazy awesome news. Here is the rest of the list.
Fable, Indigo Prophecy, Crimson Skies: High Road To Revenge, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath Of Cortex, Burnout 3, and, of course, Halo: Combat Evolved.
This will all be possible on December 2nd or 4th, 2007! Thats not far from now, and i cant wait! This is the greatest news ive heard in awhile!
Games will cost approximately 1200 Microsoft Points, or $15 USD. Microsoft plans on re-releasing as many Xbox titles as possible through Marketplace.
UPDATE Microsoft confirms this! In its press release, Microsoft explicitly named Halo, Psychonauts, Crimson Skies and Fable as titles for the Xbox Originals initiative, but did not confirm exactly which games will serve as the jump off: “This new service will launch with an array of blockbuster titles spanning the most popular genres from action-adventure to classic role-playing games. This means that a third party has only claimed that those other games that were mentioned will be released.
