Retro City Rampage out now on Xbox Live Arcade

Go explore this love letter to videogames

After a sizable wait, Retro City Rampage has made its Xbox Live Arcade debut. While this will be neither the first nor last version of the game, it is nice to know that it costs 800 Microsoft Points ($10) instead of launching at the previously announced price point of 1200 MS Points.

As stated before, the extra month of development time for RCR on XBLA means a more polished experience out of the gate. Designer Brian Provinciano says that the remaining versions (namely, WiiWare) will be arriving sometime this month. And maybe, just maybe, he can finally sleep.
