Everything you need to know about Microsoft's Game Room


8:00 PM on 01.07.2010



Game Room itself will be a free download and you'll be able to customize your space with decorations, themes and animated icons. The part that will cost you money is with the arcade units you'll be buying to fill up the Game Room space. Game Room will work on either the PC or Xbox 360 and you can buy games so that you can play them on either platform at any time. You'll also have the choice of buying arcade games tied to one platform at a lower price. Or for 40 Microsoft Points ($0.50), you'll be able to play an arcade game until you die, just like a real arcade cabinet. Otherwise, purchasing an arcade title will run you from 240 to 400 Microsoft Points.

Each arcade title will have Achievements and universal leaderboards. Game Room is really about the social aspect, as it should be, and you'll be able to send challenges to your friends and visit your friend's Game Room where you can demo their games for free.

Game Room will be released this Spring for the PC and Xbox 360. Hit the break to see the list of the first 30 games, of the 1,000 planned, coming out at launch.

Pokémon fighting game coming to arcades first for 'the challenge'

The announcement of Pokkén Tournament came as a surprise to most of us. We knew some sort of Pokémon fighter was coming, but the news that Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada was in charge was an awe...more

Bandai Namco is making Pokkén Tournament with older fans in mind

I get the sinking feeling it'll be a good long while before we get our hands on Pokkén Tournament, Bandai Namco's Pokémon fighting game for arcades (and probably Wii U). Until then, here's another quote about th...more

Pix the Cat is out now and its Nostalgia mode is sweet

For the same reasons I was excited as heck for Cuphead, I am loving Pix the Cat's Snake-like Nostalgia Mode for reminding me of Felix the Cat and 20s animation in general.  And then you realize everything else about this game is nuts and that it's just been released for free for PlayStation Plus members so I'm going to go download that jam right now before my subscription lapses. more
