Microsoft have just unveiled at CES 2010 that they will be releasing what will be called the 'Game Room' to Xbox Live and Games for Windows LIVE this March 2010. Imagine being able to play a range of over 1000 classic video arcade games (such as intellivision & atari) as your avatar in your very own customizable arcade room and being able to compete with friends for high scores in your own arcade.

Game Room will carry a two-tiered price structure. You can full purchase a game for between 240-400 MSP, or you can pay 40MSP and play the game only once - just like in a real arcade. And a new game will be released every week

You can watch an amazing trailer of what to expect here: xboxresource.com/viewurl.php?u... ... entListTop

As always with things like this I am willing to give it a chance but it could end up being something I never use again like Twitter/Facebook etc... perhaps if you could actually walk around and stuff it would be more useful.

40MSP points for one play of the game. x 1000 different games = 40, 000MSP to play every game once so that's 340.... gonna happen. another big ass scam from microsoft.

Lol makes me wonder if anything M$ do anymore ever pleases you smad - I cant see anything wrong with it because people are quite willing to do this in real arcades so why not on their Xbox?

You have to remember though that M$ is a business and even though they are loaded, their ultimate goal at the end of the day is to make money and thats what they are trying to do...
