Xbox 360 - Marketplace
Xbox 360 owners have two new LIVE Arcade games to buy this week, although they are of differing quality - and price. Tron will set you back 400 MS Points but this port of the Arcade 'classic' doesn't stand up well today, meaning it's one for nostalgia fans only. Omega 5 is an impressive looking shmup that, strangely for a game from the genre, has never appeared in an Arcade. This hasn't stopped the game from receiving plenty of hype from hardcore fans, although our full verdict will arrive next week.
Top of the Microsoft Points bill this week is the expansion for Midway's excellent Stranglehold. 1200 MS Points will get you 10 new maps, 21 new character skins and 250 new Gamerpoints to earn. As good as all this new stuff is, the problem is that Stranglehold's multiplayer was never what made it such an entertaining game. For those who grew to love the game's multiplayer experience though, this should add plenty to get on with.
If you want to unlock all the bonus content in Activision's Transformers then 500 MS Points will get you all the levels, G1 skins and bonus content - it's worth noting that these can all be unlocked by playing through the game. Naruto fans also get the Choji & Temari pack, which gives two new characters and three new arenas.
Elsewhere we've got a demo for SEGA's The Club, videos from MLG and Red vs Blue, a Tron theme and gamer pic set, and plenty of music videos from ex pop Queen Britney Spears.
