Xbox Live Games Being Axed

So apparently the bad under appreciated Xbox Live titles are being removed of the system, I personally think this is a fantastic idea as most of the games on there are absolute rubbish.

However the mob got worked up again and complained that when their Xbox 360 RROD’s they won’t be able to re-download their paid for games… but apparently that is not true and therefore is a mute point…

So which games are going to be removed?, well we have no confirmation yet but according to Gaming Bits we may be losing some fantastic [sarcasm] titles like (metacritic score in brackets)

Yaris (19), Double Dragon (57), Pac-Man (62), Ecco the Dolphin (53) and Texam Hold ’em (63)… wait a minute I really enjoy Texas Hold ’em… how did that get a 63?

Oi Metacritic add my 99% to it and see if we can move it over the 65% cut off….

So which other games should be removed? *cough* space giraffe *cough*

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • yeah I like Texas hold em … haven’t played it in a while! but that’s not the point!!! where’s my g*ddamn pitchfork!

  • I had a thought about it and I think it’s a bad idea. The whole point of a service like this is that you can go and dig up long forgotten gems, or disasters 😉

    If they’re not making money, they should rather drop the price to something like 100-200 points and stick them in “the bin”, but don’t take them off the service completely.

    I mean track and field is on there and I quite enjoy that from time to time, it’s fun to play with family.

    Track and Field isn’t too bad in some circumstances, not as cool as the second one would’ve been.

  • I agree, check out my comments on my post here (http://craign.net/2008/05/24/my-thoughts-on-xbox-live-arcade-titles-being-delisted/).
