Microsoft sent out a launch list of retail Xbox 360 games which will also be available as downloads when the spring up date comes around. What’s interesting is you won’t need to buy Games on Demand title with Microsoft Points.

 

An excerpt of the press release is below. Take note of the bold text.

 

Full Xbox 360 games at the push of a button
Xbox 360 games: Games on Demand. Launching with a library of 21 great titles, Games on Demand marks the introduction of digitally distributed full Xbox 360 games: the titles you want, when you want them, straight to your Xbox 360 at the push of a button. You’ll also have the option to easily purchase Games on Demand titles directly via credit card.

 

Hopefully, this is a step forward to letting customers purchase Xbox Live Arcade games with cash instead of converting dollars to points to a purchase.

 

Here’s the initial lineup. At this time Microsoft has not announced pricing for the service.
