Wing Commander and Super Contra this week on Xbox Live Arcade

For 400 Microsoft Points ($5) you can pick up Super Contra and shoot aliens in South America. Like Contra before it Super Contra is a port of the arcade version, played in a bordered window and with online co-op play.


The brand new game this week is Wing Commander Arena where 16 players can meet online and shoot each other down. Eighteen ships, nine maps and the return of the Kilrathi Empire makes it sound like it will be worth the 800 Microsoft Points ($10) when it comes out in two days. The best part?

    $5 US for an Online arcade port of Contra on XBOX Live Vs an $8 SNES Offline port of Contra on the Wii’s Virtual Console, tough choice >_>

    If the XBOX 360 was cheaper (and more stable), I would by it just to play these Live Arcade games online.
