I just received a press release from our local Take-Two publishers announcing that Max Payne and Max Payne 2 are now available on Xbox Live through the Xbox Live Original program.
Each are retailing at 1200 points which is more than reasonable for a full retail title and if you haven’t played Max Payne then do everything you can to give these games a go.
Bullet time is one of my favourite inventions of all time and Max Payne is the originator and perfector of this art.
Check the full press release after the break.
